Here are some of the references I recommend for your continued growth and learning. Much of what they teach will be incorporated into the teachings on this web site.
Weight Loss - Free e-book by Jessica Ortner one of the creators of the Tapping solution Summit that happens every year- Great EFT information with a focus on weight loss!
By Doreen Virtue. This is a great little book to investigate what your specific food cravings might be about at a deeper "craving" level, your other hungers or needs can be more easily determined with the help of this reference.
I like to use this book in my practice when someone is craving the same food over and over to see what the metaphysical meaning may be. I have never had a patient say "Oh no that's not what I am experiencing", usually their mouth is open when they say "Oh my God how did you know that" because it is spot on. Then you can do EFT or great self care work to clear the issues and the craving goes away.
Even though this book is for women the back chapter has critical information for balancing energy in your body for weight loss. Get the book and practice every process that she recommends that applies to you. It will make a HUGE difference. I have a very detailed PDF summary of all the energy medicine techniques for weight loss, if you send me your e-mail and ask for that I will send it to you. Also see my page on this site Energy Medicine Tips.
By Jane Hirshman and Carol Munter - these two ladies are two of the original founders of a non-diet approach to weight loss.I was one of the first Dietitians ever to follow their work and teach a non-diet approach to weight loss. Back then it was radical for the Dietitian to do such a thing unlike today where there is a lot of information out there because many have realized DIETS DON"T WORK!
By Geneen Roth - another founder of the non-diet approach to weight loss, any of her books are helpful.
She also has audio tapes, very spiritual and comprehensive approach to the roots of what keeps weight on your bodies.
By Colin Tippin - often there are issues of forgiveness that need to be explored for you to be free of excess weight.
By Marshall Rosenberg - this is where The Feelings Inventories and The Universal Needs List that I adapted for this work originated from. If you would like a copy of these charts (PDF) e-mail me and I will be happy to send them to you. Using these daily to understand your feelings and needs can be life changing!
Guided Imagery for various topics look for the one on Weight Loss and use it daily, it is great when you fell like you need to rest a bit to get refreshed and you can be transforming the mind at the same time, or it is great just before sleep at night.
Guided imagery (sometimes called guided meditation, visualization, mental rehearsal, and guided self-hypnosis) is a gentle but powerful technique that focuses the imagination in proactive, positive ways.
Guided imagery or guided meditation has the built-in capacity to deliver multiple layers of complex, encoded messages deep inside – positive, healing, motivating messages – through simple images, sensations, symbols and metaphors, received in an altered or trance-like state.
And because it mobilizes unconscious processes to assist with conscious goals, it can bring to bear much more of the whole person to get behind a desired end. You might say these positive messages act like a depth charge dropped beneath the surface of the self, where they can reverberate again and again, catalyzing continuous change.
Over the past 40 years, the effectiveness of guided imagery has been validated by research, demonstrating its positive impact on health, wellness, attitude, behavioral change and peak performance.

Fabulous Courses using EFT for eating, weight and body issues (that is the link)
Created by Peta Stapleton PhD and Glenn MackintoshPhD. Great courses to do on your own time and they allow payments weekly to spread out the cost if needed. Dr. Stapleton is responsible for evidence based EFT research and was the first to show Functional MRIs using tapping and how it re-wires the brain with just a few sessions and her initial focus was on weight loss and food cravings!
Dr. Stapleton also wrote a great book:
The Science Behind Tapping: A Proven Stress Management Technique for the Mind and Body
Dr. Becky Fitness- a great site if you want to use the Ketogenic diet or intermittent fasting or low carbohydrate eating in a healthy way. She and her husband have also created a ton of YouTube videos on her channel as well. All her information is evidence based and she makes it all sound so easy. Her Freedom Weight Loss Program is only 97.00 for a full year access and she has a forum for support along the way. She also has 2 Challenges that are 21 days , one is Keto and one is Low Carb and both are only 29.00 each.
Bright Line Eating- is very structured and takes a liberating stand
against moderation. They use an addiction model, because for many
people, eating even a small amount of an addictive food doesn’t make the
craving go away—it makes it worse. This program was designed by a psychology professor with a Ph.D. in Brain and Cognitive Sciences Susan Pierce Thompson. She has a 14 Day Challenge (for $14.00), a Boot Camp and a long term program she calls Bright Line Eating. If you think you are truly a food addict this might be the program for you.
I want everyone to see this movie, maybe several times and bring your family and friends. If you watch it with them it makes it so much easier when you eating with them if they have the same information that comes from this movie, they won't push back so much on your food choices and you won't have to try to explain it all to them. Plus you may be the one that saves them from terrible illnesses from the food they eat unknowingly making them sick and fat. Pay attention to the mention that these ingredients are causing obesity, most of the USA is unaware of the secret ingredients in our foods that is making us sick and fat. We must get informed and choose foods that do not have this stuff in them! What you don't know can hurt you.
