The Powerseed System is a lifestyle change program that helps people to eat more slowly, savor their food, avoid thoughtless snacking—and most importantly, stop eating when they are no longer hungry. By doing this they can eat less food without restrictive dieting. The approach uses a tiny personal coach, the Powerseed, to implement the mindful-eating methods explained in the 112-page Guide to Your Powerseed System.
Weight control success is all about doing a better job of managing our minds from moment-to-moment. The Powerseed strategies help people pay active attention whenever they eat or think about food. They learn to tap into their body’s internal portion control system AS they eat. Anyone can achieve dramatic reductions in daily food consumption and still feel satisfied when using the Powerseed System.
Although the Powerseed can support any eating or fitness program, please note that it's not a diet plan. The "diet mentality" (starving yourself, focusing on food and body obsessions, evaluating oneself by the numbers on a scale, etc.) is ineffective and can cause of serious eating disorders. Our approach encourages our clients to enjoy eating, and eat as much as they need to satisfy their physiological hunger. This is why it is considered a "non-diet" program.
