Have you ever woke up the one morning belly still bloated from last night...

And cursed for the umpteenth time, how did I let this happen... again?!?

Does it ever feel like you're caught in an endless Binge Eating cycle around food? 

Where you can't stop thinking about food? And the harder you try the harder you fail? You can't escape.

Every time you crash and burn. Eventually... you've failed so many times all you can do is think about food. 

You see so many other people easily eating while you struggle with something that should be so easy...

Deep down you truly do believe you are broken... at the very least  something is significantly out-of-whack within you...

And because deep down because you believe your unwholeness is true, you continue to manifest the same dreary food, body and health reality where you currently exist.

But what if you could channel your most inner most subconscious thoughts in a more effective way instead of fighting against yourself?

What if you could be free from the dreaded binge eating catch 22 cycle? losing and gaining the same 20-30 pounds over and over?

My name is Jared and I struggled with binge eating, emotional eating and overeating for 6+ years.

But eating was only a 'superficial' problem... my real problem was that I had no self concept. I didn't even know how to 'feel' my body or emotions, let alone intuit my higher "Self"...

Deep down I felt like if I looked into a mirror to see my true self, that I would see nothing.

I didn't matter. My needs didn't matter. My emotions didn't matter. My personal space didn't matter.

And because I believed these negative inner beliefs...

For 6 years, every single day I would think about food, calories, my weight, my plan, etc...

I was stuck. I had tried everything and nothing had worked.

Depression set in, and I turned to marijuana and even more food to numb out from my lonely pointless existence.

Things got dark... I didn't see any way out... I felt helpless, trapped, powerless... and I could only see one option.

I felt like my only choice was... to become a Zen Buddhist Monk.

While living as a Zen Buddhist Monk for 13 months, my life changed dramatically.

But ultimately freedom eluded me. I would still binge occasionally and deep down I knew my binges could return...

Finally, I got exposed to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Intuitive Eating while working as a Recovery Counselor at Cielo House For Eating Disorders.

You read more about my story here... but long story short...

I finally healed by combining:

1) My Buddhist Mindfulness Training
2) Proven Science of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
3) Health at Every Size 

I took these three powerful healing modalities and integrated them with my past history of food struggles through years of therapy and recovery work...

And I was able to turn greatest weakness "not knowing myself" and actually healing what seemed like a horrible blackhole in my heart that I would never recover from!

Now I feel clear, and yes, 'enlightened' in some form of The Word.

Even my horrible inner critic started to transform into compassion and love towards myself and my body, which was something I always thought was cliche but turns out is possible!

If you want to learn more about this simple, proven framework to end bingeing and create sustainable eating habits, then continue reading!

"CBT focuses on identifying the negative feelings and behaviors that cause binge eating and helps put strategies in place to improve them. It is the most effective treatment for BED." - HEALTHLINE

“Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy has been found more effective than other treatments. CBT typically eliminates binge eating and purging in 30-50% of all cases.” - OXFORD CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY

Millions of hardworking folks are struggling with overeating, if you’re anything like them …

  • You find yourself waking up hating your body and puffy face from overeating and bingeing last night.

     

  • You’ve gone to the moon and back with Overeater’s Anonymous, various diets, doctors, therapies and feels like you have only yourself left to blame.

     

  • Deep down you feel that you are broken and that there’s just something truly wrong with your body and who you are.

     

  • You can’t stop thinking about food and weight even though this only makes things worse and blocks you from your dreams and relationships.

     

  • You’re worried about your health and know tons of information about healthy eating, but you still can’t stop self-sabotaging and keep gaining weight.

     

  • You’ve tried various attempts at ‘eating when hungry stop when full’, or Intuitive Eating but you just lose control and overeat

I want you to know that you’re not alone, and that real lasting change is both possible and proven.

Are you ready for a surprisingly effective approach to heal binge eating while becoming a better version of your self?

Hi! I’m Jared and I know what it feels like to be keep on sabotaging and not know why. Hell, I became a Zen Monk for 13 months in desperation.

I just want you to know that I believe in your innate potential and ability to grow, heal and thrive … perhaps even more than you do at this current moment.

If I can overcome my 6 year struggle with binge eating, isolating social awkwardness, and negative self-worth then I know you can too. Years ago I had no idea about who I was, I just knew I hated myself and I hid my shame in food.

However, I was lucky to join a Zen Monastery for 13 months where I overcame binge eating (for the first but not last time). 

My mission is to help recreate my Zen Monastery experience for fellow overeaters who are willing to explore Awareness Journaling as a lifestyle and spiritual path.

“I’ve truly embraced the journal lifestyle.”

“For the first time in my life I am fitting into a small pair of pants – even after I had bought a larger, more comfortable slacks like Jared had suggested as part of making my body feel safe and comfortable. I’ve truly embraced the journal lifestyle I would say and It boggles my mind that 8 months after the program ended my waist is actually smaller and I no longer need the larger pants. Plus I have only an inkling of what my weight is when I had to check my weight when I went to the doctor’s office. I could have told the doctor I didn’t want my weight checked, that’s something Jared taught me, but I was curious and didn’t judge myself. It’s just crazy I’m still shocked these jeans fit. This is such good emotional work it really spills over into all of your life!”

“I just had a major Eating Enlightenment moment.”

“I am flying in the heavens as I write this. I just had a major eating enlightenment moment. I’ve been meditating and journaling throughout this entire program and I’m now able to take the role of witness of my behaviors and watch from my place of curiosity without self-judgment. It really seems like my brain is actually rewiring because I’m seeing food differently and my body. This morning I looked into the mirror and didn’t even recognize myself! It was like seeing an old, familiar friend after many years apart. I wanted to hug this woman and tell her that I missed her. And that I recognized your beauty. She was beautiful and confident. And that I looked at her even closer and I realized that she was my sister, my soul sister – she was me! It was though I had lifted a veil and was seeing the world for the first time. I’m just so excited about where this journey is taking me and I’m also proud to say in this moment there is no end. Just here now.”

“Writing your thoughts onto paper truly does get them out of your head.”

I suppose if you are reading this then you too have struggled with diets, weight and the finicky scale. I’ve finally released the hold the scale has over me. The process of writing your thoughts onto paper truly does get them out of your head. I have finally released my chronic need to diet. Dieting for me was always about getting control when my life was falling apart. I was anxious and stressed all the time no wonder! I feel like Jared’s emphasis on emotional intelligence and self-care has really just glued all these pieces of intuitive eating together. And now that I’m taking care of myself I can a) recognize dieting thoughts and b) say politely no thanks to my dieting thoughts. Oh, and the scale, it’s more of an afterthought now. I check it about once a week but if I forget a day then I don’t care. Previously I would have checked multiple times per day. What a shift!”
