Why Are You Weighting?

Why Are You Weighting? is a weight loss plan created by Stacey Grieve that is available as a book or online coaching program. Grieve says that her program is not just another diet plan but “is a way of looking at your life that makes lasting, permanent change to your waistline and your inner self at the same time.”

Although the book does not include a diet or eating plan, by increasing the awareness of your eating habits and developing a positive self esteem, Grieve says that you will naturally gravitate towards the diet and exercise choices that will promote weight loss.

Self Esteem Boosting Diet Basics

Grieve says that diets are not the answer because invariably once you stop the diet you start to gain weight again. Instead of offering another diet plan her program teaches you how to reprogram yourself into “thin thinking”.

This will allow you to stop yo-yo dieting forever by addressing the reasons why you overeat in the first place. It can also be used as a maintenance plan to help you stay at your ideal weight.

This program can be used in conjunction with the dietary plan of your choice and doesn’t require dieters to adhere to any specific diet guidelines. The emphasis is on developing a positive attitude, building self-esteem, facing your fears and identifying other factors that may be influencing your ability to lose weight.

Why Are You Weighting also offers a 15-week coaching plan where up to five people meet with her on the phone via a conference call once per week.
