From Weight Loss for Women
Whether consciously or unconsciously, many people are frustrated with their body weight and have a real desire to get their health in great shape.
They fret over their body’s appearance or function on a daily, and sometimes hourly, basis. Their thoughts become consumed with how they will “do things differently tomorrow”. This frustration and niggling worry can take up valuable headspace, deeply affect their self-esteem, influence their moods, how they relate to others…and not to mention their ability to lose body fat.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Inspired by her best-selling book Accidentally Overweight, Dr Libby presents Weight Loss for Women – a nine-week practical course overflowing with guidance and tuition to help you solve your weight loss puzzle.
If you’ve ever wondered “what would Dr Libby say” about certain foods, how your body works, why you just can’t resist that snack or why you can’t seem to lose weight no matter how much you try, then this course will empower you with answers.
Guided by her philosophy that you have to be healthy to lose weight, this program will help you to get your health in great shape and reactivate your body’s ability to burn body fat as a fuel.
With daily support, during this 9 week journey you will:
- Learn how to find enjoyment in eating again, without worrying about how food is going to affect your body shape
- Understand the science of weight loss so you know how to work with your body to achieve optimal health — and not feel like your body is betraying you
- Gain energy, vitality and a renewed sense of how amazing you truly are
- Be guided through a step-by-step process to help you get to the heart of unresourceful eating
- Understand how your body works and how best to support its processes
- Finally kick that sugar addiction and experience what it’s like for sugar to no longer be your preference
- Become part of a community, with an opportunity to share, ask questions and feel supported through your weight loss journey

We believe that weight loss is a byproduct of great health so it’s our mission to help you re-establish a commitment to looking after yourself.

The focus of this course is primarily on increasing your health and vitality through improving the biochemical functions within your body.

A greater understanding of all of your body systems and the intricate interaction between them, including how they impact on your body’s ability to access body fat as a fuel source. You’ll also deepen your relationship with yourself through exploring some of the beliefs you’ve built around what you need to do to be loved, your relationship with food, and how you interact with the people in your life.

While we do make some suggestions around what to eat, this course offers no strict diet. Our philosophy is to bring you back to trusting yourself and what your own body needs through consuming nutrient-rich wholefoods. To help you with this, we provide 10 mini recipe eBooks to inspire you.
Most of the videos sit around the 10 minute mark though some are longer and some are shorter. Remember you can take the course at your own pace over the nine weeks and it’s designed to be flexible. However, if you wanted to keep pace with the daily content, we estimate between 15-30 minutes a day.
