In her years as a nutrition student, wellness consultant, and now as a health coach, Laura Ellen has come to realize one very key trend: we’re all keeping the same secret, hoping nobody finds out our secret. And that secret is - we all feel crazy with food. MORE >From doctors, to physique competitors, to weight loss clients, Laura has worked with person after person who is waiting to get they’re eating “under control” before they really show up in the world - professionally, personally, or otherwise. And it’s this waiting and hiding, not the eating itself, that keeps them stuck in the same habits.
In this talk, Laura Ellen breaks down how shame perpetuates unwanted eating behaviors and keeps up from our health and diet goals rather than motivating us to success.
Change is difficult for almost everyone, and it often looks easier and safer to stay with old habits and behaviors, even though we know they can keep us from living up to our full potential. I have found ways to help people identify the costly sources of self-sabotage and disrupt those patterns, to free themselves from these behaviors and open new paths. MORE >In my presentation I will share details on how to identify the source of those expensive habits, how to disrupt them and establish behaviors that open the way to a life of joy and success that may have once seemed out of reach. For the people at your event who know what to do for their health, relationships, or business but can’t seem to consistently change these costly self-sabotaging behaviors, I will help them discover how they can disrupt those habits and find a new path with a whole new set of opportunities.

It is known that physical activities are an essential part of having a satisfactory quality of life. Activities encourage forming social interactions, enhance self-worth, and strengthen biological functions. This is especially true for children with special needs. Even further, according to the U.S Department of Health & Human Services, the benefits of physical activities for persons with disabilities are immeasurable: ranging from improving psychological issues such as anxiety and depression, improving joint pain and swelling discomforts, and decreasing the chance of getting colon cancer, diabetes, and high blood pressure (Persons with Disabilities). MORE >Nonetheless, there are some barriers to engaging in physical activities. According to a scholarly study, factors include " child's lack of interest (43%), lack of developmentally appropriate programs (33%), too many behavioral problems (32%), and parents' lack of time (29%)"(Yazdani et al., 2013). However, the study concluded that it all boils down to the parental physical activity and lifestyle, which reflects on how much their child would contribute in physical activities regardless of the barriers (Yazdani et al., 2013). Activities that includes both the parent and the child are ideal. The child would have the emotional support they need and a role model to follow. Ultimately resulting in a healthy and happy life.

The formula to health and weight loss seems pretty clear: Don’t eat sweets or junk food. Exercise. Reach your body goals.

And why can one inanimate cake cause us to act in exactly the opposite way of our goals? MORE >Laura Ellen breaks down how the conventional weight loss and fitness industries’ approach to dieting sabotages willpower and is the cause of their terrible client success rates. She then teaches practical, science-proven methods to maximizing diet willpower and motivation that you’ve never heard from a health professional before.
