"Stress, in varied forms and intensity, is an inescapable part of life. A troubled relationship with food and your body is not." - Gina
Here's what it comes down to: Our relationship with food can be our gateway to a richer human experience, and Lisa Schlosberg is the guide I absolutely want with me on that journey!
I'm a 57 yo woman and mother of 4 who has trained in a wide range of nutritional philosophies, holistic healing modalities, and emotional integration techniques...and my relationship with food was still fraught. Since the age of 12 I had been stuck in a circular pattern of losing and gaining weight that I clearly recognized but could not fully extricate myself from.
The last, and biggest, bout of weight gain came during a time of intense activism and the huge life transition of moving across the country. If you think about it, that should have nothing to do with food and eating, but we all know it does. Why? and How do we heal that? are the questions Lisa's comprehensive program helps you answer for yourself.
Stress, in varied forms and intensity, is an inescapable part of life. A troubled relationship with food and your body is not. The deep knowledge, powerful work, compassion, humor and community that Lisa offers facilitates an honest, loving and transformative relationship with self. It's freeing me from a 45-year battle and creating a more beautiful voyage through life.
If you are suffering in this realm, you deserve the mind-body-soul wellbeing that Out of the Cave Group Coaching can bring.
"Because of OOTC, I now know that I’m not crazy, my brain is actually functioning exactly as it should, AND it is possible to shift my mindset when it no longer serves my best interest." - Abby
Before I started listening to Lisa’s podcast, I felt completely helpless around my relationship to food. After spending decades either on or off a diet (and believe me, I tried them all), I discovered the anti-diet movement. While it was a nice break from the constant stress of dieting, I quickly found that this was not the “solution” I’d been looking for either.Both ends of the food spectrum felt wrong, but from where I was standing, no one was offering a true alternative.
Then my mom recommended I check out Lisa’s podcast and suddenly I was hearing the words I’d been needing to hear: Balance is possible. I signed up almost immediately for Lisa’s program and it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done. Lisa gives you the tools to work on changing the internal dialogue that leads to an unhealthy relationship with food. She meets group participants where they are at; rather than shaming or negating individual health goals, she provides the framework for achieving a calmer and infinitely more sane and balanced approach to wellness. Furthermore, she does so with the utmost compassion, wisdom, and acceptance. Most importantly, Lisa taught me how to unpack my personal history with food through the lens of research-based brain science, which has been an invaluable tool for developing self-compassion and awareness. Prior to this program I was sure there was something wrong with me, that despite many other successful areas of my life, I couldn’t get a handle on why I continually used food in unhealthy ways. Because of OOTC, I now know that I’m not crazy, my brain is actually functioning exactly as it should, AND it is possible to shift my mindset when it no longer serves my best interest. I highly recommend OOTC to anyone who has ever felt out of control in their relationship with food, whether through overeating, undereating, or a mix of the two.
"I feel like I now have the awareness to live the healthy lifestyle I've wanted . . . It truly changed my life!" - Rachel G
I found Lisa's program after years of alternating between strict dieting and the "fuck it" mindset of eating whatever my emotions desired. I couldn't understand why I could not just feel "normal" around food and how to get out of this cycle.
Through her program, Lisa not only provided me with the tools to feel at ease around food and make decisions I know are best for my own overall health, but gave me awareness as to WHY I was feeling/ acting the way I was around food, and that has been the real game-changer for me.
I feel like I now have the awareness to live the healthy lifestyle I've wanted, and also have been able to find the balance in navigating the diet/ anti-diet/ intuitive eating/ holistic health arena.
There is SO much to unpack on this subject and Lisa is the most helpful coach with it, setting you up for lifetime success with tools you can use forever. I can't thank her enough for putting this program together - it truly changed my life.
"If you're ready to put in the work and really truly learn to be at peace with yourself in a world where you have to eat every day, give her a call." - Emily
I am transforming my life every day because of Lisa. Her approach to mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wellness is so poignantly different from everything else I had tried or heard of—understanding not only your emotional self but the brain science behind our behaviors is the reason, I believe, that Lisa's program works for the long run. In a world that tells us things are black and white or offers "quick fixes," Lisa teaches about the long road, about imperfectly practicing every day for the rest of our lives.
If you're looking for a way to change your physical body, don't go to Lisa. If you're looking for someone to give you a set of rules on how to be happier & more comfortable around food, don't go to Lisa. If you're ready to learn and listen and put in work on yourself every day, Lisa is who you want to go to. It's not always easy, but the skills she teaches have slowly and effectively transformed my life in a sustainable way. It's not about "fuck diets" and it's not about "only eating whole foods and meditating," it's about addressing your entire system as a physical, mental, emotional, spiritual being, who wants to have a full life filled with love, fun, relationships, emotions, and yes, lots of food.
I can't say enough good things about Lisa and how she's affected my life in such a positive way, but what it all boils down to is if you're ready to put in the work and really truly learn to be at peace with yourself in a world where you have to eat every day, give her a call.
"I trust myself for the first time in my life. I am inhabiting my own body. I trust that it knows what it wants and needs."
Before I started working with Lisa, I felt like my life was run by anxiety and I felt no power over my eating habits. I had low self-esteem and self-worth, which affected all aspects of my life; family, friends, career, health. I was stuck in a diet-binge cycle and any attempt at a balanced diet failed. I was physically and emotionally exhausted. I started digging into psychology, spirituality and self-exploration, but I felt lost and unsure it would help.
Working with Lisa encouraged me to keep exploring my inner world and starting to befriend myself. Lisa made me feel seen and heard in the most vulnerable way and from there I could start accepting and loving the parts of me that I was unable to before. I started healing. The way Lisa explained the brain science behind the behaviors made me realize that there is nothing wrong with me. There never was, it is just what happened to me and the behaviors I developed to cope, to survive. And just as I developed those, I can develop new ones. I started seeing the light at the end of the tunnel for the first time. I started feeling empowered from the inside. For the first time I was on my own team.
I trust myself for the first time in my life. I am inhabiting my own body. I trust that it knows what it wants and needs. I trust the messages I receive from it, the sensations, feelings. I can stay more present in uncomfortable times and I have the tools to bring myself back into balance. I feel more confident in my own self. I am on my way to change my career that I am passionate about. I have improved relationships with my family, and I have met new friends that are aligned with this new me. I accept more of who I am, and I have even bigger goals for the future while enjoying the present moment and the process of learning and growing. I’m not waiting for “when I lose x pounds, I can...” anymore. I feel worthy of it all, now.
This work isn’t easy. For a real change you have to dig deep, you have to let yourself feel all the things that you were afraid to feel, you have to show up for yourself. This was the hardest thing I have ever done in my adult life. But I am a better person for it for the rest of my life and I am a better human to everyone around me. Lisa not only knows the science behind the behaviors, she also lived it herself. She gets it. She sees you. She meets you where you are and lovingly guides you towards freedom. She doesn’t sugarcoat it. She doesn’t pretend she knows everything. She isn’t another diet guru that will give you 5 steps to lose weight. She holds the space for you to uncover who you truly are, how you want to live your life, what works for you. She believes in you and guides you towards your own inner wisdom. In the group Lisa provides loving and compassionate space with deep knowledge, various exercises and she equips you with various tools that allow you to stay on this journey and help you find your own path out of the cave.
"It's not about the food!" - Dayna
"It's not about the food!"
I heard this a lot, but I never understood it
while I struggled to
Stop sitting on the couch every night,
mindlessly watching tv,
mindlessly getting up every few minutes to fill a bowl with chips, nuts, cookies, chocolate chips...
Mindlessly moving hand to bowl,
then to mouth.
Sweet or savory, it didn't matter. I hardly tasted any of it. I was hardly even present in my own body or mind.
Waking up each morning feeling ill, still overstuffed from the night before.
And full, also
of shame and self-loathing and fear.
Thinking, promising myself:
Tonight will be different.
Tonight I'll do better.
But of course, tonight became the same as last night
and I continued on.
Mindlessly living in the cave.
With no idea how to get out.
20+ years into the cycle of mindless emotional eating and exercising to counter the intake, the universe led me to the group program.
Lisa, Ale and 19 other beautiful humans,
was the salve I needed to heal my relationship with food and my body.
I got the tools to step out of the cave.
Supported every step of the way lovingly and enthusiastically by Lisa and the others.
I was brave.
I learned to Do The Thing.
I stopped using food as a drug to numb my feelings.
I started to accept the things I cannot change.
I learned to listen closely to the voices of my inner children, to validate their feelings, and to feed and nourish them with Love.
I'm learning to let go of Fear and Control.
And yes, I finally understood-
It's not about the food at all really.
I'm so grateful.
Thank you Lisa, for walking me home,
out of the cave and into the light.
It's bright out here, but so much richer.
"I have learned solid techniques that allow me to ditch diet culture forever, eat mindfully, feel into my emotions, find true connection with what my body needs, and gain confidence in living from my truth in all areas of my life." - Abby
Working with her has been such a valuable experience. She has touched me deeply. Personally. When I first heard Lisa’s unique take around health, weight and body image, it was eye-opening and refreshing. I knew that this was the way forward for me.
My weight is something I have struggled with my whole life and I’ve been morbidly obese since at least middle school. I yoyo dieted through my twenties and into my thirties, always gaining everything back and then some. Several years ago, I felt out of options and had gastric sleeve surgery. I lost a large amount of weight very quickly, only to gain about a third of it back just as rapidly. That was the lowest point. Weight, surgery, and battles with chronic pain and illness had taken a toll, and I felt so much shame and completely disconnected from my body’s needs.
Working with Lisa, I started to understand how I got here and why I have the relationship with food that I have. I learned it wasn’t all about food and body image, but that food and body image were all about everything else. I’ve gained so much insight about myself. Understanding brought a compassion for myself that I had never had before.
I have learned solid techniques that allow me to ditch diet culture forever, eat mindfully, feel into my emotions, find true connection with what my body needs, and gain confidence in living from my truth in all areas of my life. Unlike a diet or exercise coaching plan, this is a perspective-shift. My journey didn’t last the number of weeks we met — it has just begun, and Lisa has provided me with the map and supplies I need to continue traveling the road ahead. Lisa’s insightful cross-disciplined approach, her contagious warmth and glow, and her ability to deeply connect with empathy, makes this a truly life-changing experience.
"I learned how to value myself through reparenting myself, and ultimately, I learned how to love me." - Hannah
I’m so thankful that I came across Lisa and decided to jump into her group coaching program. I’ve done a lot of work on my chronic pain, which had lasted over 5 years, but at the end of that program, I realized I was ready to face a much more chronic issue in my life: my relationship with food and my body. I had nothing to lose, and the opportunity to get my life back. Spoiler alert: I got my life back!
Although I’d been healed from my eating disorder for a decade, I still had a distorted relationship with food and my body. I was an emotional eater and could never fully get a handle on it. I also had a difficult time separating my weight and shape from my worth. Through the group coaching modules, it became apparent that I didn’t have a problem with food, I had a problem coping with my emotions. I learned how to value myself through reparenting myself, and ultimately, I learned how to love me. Lisa, I can’t thank you enough for giving me such a priceless gift. I no longer turn to food to feel better, because I’m able to work through my feelings. I can hardly express the magnitude of the weight that’s been lifted off my shoulders. Food is no longer a “thing” for me, and I value myself far beyond what I see in the mirror.
"Lisa has helped me find the path to a deeper understanding of my relationship with food and myself, and from there real change can occur." - Nate
I've been battling my weight and relationship with food for over 20 years. I have tried dozens of diets only to find myself frustrated time and time again after losing weight and then gaining back even more. A couple of years ago I found the anti-diet movement and thought that was the answer as well. That left me even more frustrated, heavier, and generally feeling lost.
Then my wife introduced me to Lisa's podcast, and we subsequently joined her very next group class. This was a transformational experience. Lisa has put together a method, based in science, to stop the yo-yo dieting mentality and find balance.
She has taught me how to raise my awareness of why I'm behaving the way I do, why I'm compelled to eat or not eat, and most importantly, that it's not really about the food. She has helped me find the path to a deeper understanding of my relationship with food and myself, and from there real change can occur.
While I am just starting out on this journey, I truly feel that I've changed and now not only do I have hope that things can get better, but the tools to get there. If you're feeling stuck like I was, give Lisa a chance to help you change your life.
"Coming out of the cave has been the best thing I have ever done for myself and I encourage all who are struggling around food, their bodies, and connecting their mind and body to sign up ASAP!" - Maggie D
Lisa is a true gem, a real healer, and a knowledgeable source when it comes to all things mind & body connection & working on your relationship with food. When I saw Lisa speak back in 2019, I was floored at how much our narratives connected and I felt drawn to her way of speaking/teaching. Lisa and I have kept in touch a lot over the two years between seeing her speak and signing up for her group course. And well I am so mad I didn’t make the investment earlier for myself. I have been able to connect with my inner child, learned to be more aware of my WHY around my behavior, thoughts, and emotions, and make choices for myself that I never would have thought to make before. Lisa comes to each lecture and q&a with open ears and an open heart to help each member in the group learn, feel validated, and be seen. The material is broken down in such a way that you can REALLY understand it and apply it to pieces of your life. And the other members of the group are so wonderful, open, and vulnerable, and want you to succeed as much as they want to succeed. Coming out of the cave has been the best thing I have ever done for myself and I encourage all who are struggling around food, their bodies, and connecting their mind and body to sign up ASAP!
"I am more connected to myself, body and mind, than I ever have been thanks to Lisa’s guidance." - Erica
2020 may have delivered pure chaos, but it also brought me LISA.
I had spent 30 years in a battle with my body. There was not a day that went by where my body size did not sit front row in my life. Keto, cleanses, nutritionists, trainers, I was even on a weight-loss TV show! No matter the number on the scale, the mental gymnastics it took to survive in my body were always there and always the same. So I sat there, at my familiar weight in the 200’s and finally said, “Enough.” I didn’t know what my next steps would be, but I knew I refused to hurt my body, brain, and soul anymore. I sat in that place for a year. I stopped counting calories and stopped forcing myself to workout in shame. I didn’t know what my next steps were, but I knew I was done torturing myself because IT DIDN’T WORK. All I knew with 100% certainty was that everything I had ever done did not work. I was at war with the only body I would ever have and that felt wrong from the depths of my soul.
Enter...LISA SCHLOSBERG. From the moment I heard her speak on Nicole Sach’s podcast, I knew she was different. Scales and calories. Pressure and shame. These familiar constants played no part in her coaching. Lisa has been mind-blowingly helpful for me because she has lived it. I can’t tell you how many professionals I have worked with who have never lived in a 300lb body. They don’t know how it feels to live and exist in our world as an obese person. There is a shorthand in communication and empathy that I have yet to find elsewhere. It took my healing to depths I had never explored within myself and especially not with a coach.
I am more connected to myself, body and mind, than I ever have been thanks to Lisa’s guidance. Whether I’m making decisions on what to feed myself or how to move my body, the only thing that guides me is to pause and figure out if I’m going in the direction of love versus fear. I go on long walks because I sleep better when I do. I eat breakfast before I drink coffee because I care about fueling my body appropriately for the day. I stopped buying licorice because eating it in bed at midnight didn’t give me the energy I preferred the next morning.
What Lisa teaches is life-changing, paradigm-shifting and massive. The antithesis of a get rich quick scheme. It’s from the top down, from the soul out. Holistic healing. I am so grateful.
"Being part of the group has forced me to look at things about myself I didn’t even know were there." - Heather
I have been struggling with chronic pain for years. In 2021 I discovered Nicole Sachs. I soon realized that being in a near constant of fear was behind my chronic pain. After hearing Lisa on Nicole’s podcast I realized a big part of that fear was due to food and body image issues. I reached out to Lisa and I initially spent some one on one time with her. I was immediately impressed with her knowledge and the speed with which she zeroed in on my personal issues.
I moved on to her 4 month group early this year. When the group started I was struck by the uncomfortable feelings that it brought up for me. It wasn’t easy. I didn’t want to do it. I checked in with Lisa because I felt that maybe group work was not for me and that I should just do one on one with her. She wisely advised that for many reasons being with the group was exactly where I needed to be. This was a big revelation for me! Being part of the group has forced me to look at things about myself I didn’t even know were there.
The community that Lisa has built is full of kind and compassionate people who struggle in similar ways. It is so helpful to know you are not alone! Even though the group work is not a quick fix and I know I have lots of work ahead of me it is a huge relief to know I am in the right place with Lisa and her group.
"This program will change your life if you are open to it." - Jennifer L
If you have been doing the same things over and over and over again and expecting different results… Lisa’s group coaching program is for you!!! This is a sign, it is now time to do something completely different!
I was on Weight Watchers since 2004 and in therapy since 2010. I knew my mindset wasn’t healthy and something was missing. I found the missing link because of Lisa’s podcast. When I listened to her first episode, I was “out of the cave” and reclaimed self-love right away.
Then, I signed up for her group coaching program to figure out how to truly live “out of the cave”. I healed my relationship with myself and then it snowballed to others in my life (husband, kids, mom, etc..). This program will change your life if you are open to it. Challenge yourself, if you want to change. The choice is always yours to make.
"Being free of my obsession with food has been life-changing." - Mary
I'm a 39-year-old wife and mother of 2, and my struggles with food and body image started back when I was a young teenager. I've lost and gained hundreds of pounds over my lifetime, followed many diets, and suffered from different eating disorders. When I first reached out to Lisa, I was exhausted by the constant thoughts of food and body image that swirled around in my head. I had no idea how to eat if I wasn't tracking or following a plan. I was stuck in a vicious cycle of tracking, restriction, and bingeing. The scale kept creeping up and I was ready for food to stop ruling my life.
Working with Lisa has been life-changing. I have learned such valuable tools for listening to my mind and body. I am no longer defined by how lean I am or how perfectly I hit my macros. I have learned to feel my feelings, rather than turning to food to numb them. Being free of my obsession with food has been life-changing. I am a better wife, mother, and business owner and I'm enjoying life more than ever. Lisa's work has been the greatest investment I've ever made in my myself. She is so real, so relatable, and so caring and I cannot ever thank her enough for the help she has given me!
"Working with Lisa has shifted my self-awareness to an all-time high. Which is truly the key to change." - Kamlyn
This program blew my heart WIDE OPEN! I cannot encourage you enough to consider Out of the Cave. After hearing Lisa speak and watching some of her lectures online I immediately connected with her message. Lisa's program is not about weight loss. For me, it was more like therapy. It is about learning tools to help you work through your emotions and traumas in a positive and truly healing way. You will find something that resonates with you. Each week I could not wait to join the next class. Things I did not expect...The group and the tribal connection are very important (much more positive than I expected) to understanding others' perspectives and realizing how much we truly have in common with each other. Working with Lisa has shifted my self-awareness to an all-time high. Which is truly the key to change. Lisa's personality is nonjudgemental, genuine, and witty AF. She is a pure pleasure to work with and I am going to do round two! It's that good! XXOO
"She is a kind and patient teacher, and helped me realize how I had gotten to this place, and how my issues with food were not really about food at all." - Stacy
I am a wife and a mom, and I work full time in marketing. I’m in my early 40s, and before I started working with Lisa, I was totally stuck in an extremely frustrating place. I have been on and off of a million diets since I was 8 years old, and I just could not find my way out on my own. I wanted so badly to figure out how to stop the lose weight >> gain weight >> hate myself diet cycle and I never ever wanted to count a freaking calorie again, but I was totally overwhelmed with all the health advice out there. All I knew was that other people didn’t seem to be so tortured by their relationships with food, and I wanted that freedom too.
I found Lisa on Instagram, and eventually I saw a post of hers that just clicked. I reached out and made the decision to invest in her program for myself. And over the 10 weeks that we worked together, I felt nothing short of a complete transformation. She is a kind and patient teacher, and helped me realize how I had gotten to this place, and how my issues with food were not really about food at all. Every week was like an emotional journey that helped me connect the dots that I just could not connect on my own. She helped me realize that coming back to my SELF was the only way out of the dark place I was in.
"I listen to my body more than I ever have before, and I have begun to prioritize my own self care across many aspects of my life outside of eating." - Meredith
I’m a scientist who works in the biotech industry, a wife, and a mom of a 7-year-old boy. I was overweight for most of my life, until about 4 years ago when I started doing Crossfit and then adopted a macro-based diet to lose weight. I lost about 15 lbs and several pants sizes, and I kept it off for several years. However, I was stuck in the cycle of cutting to lose more weight, then maintaining for a while, then feeling like I wanted to cut again.
I felt like I was always “trying” to lose more weight but never fully following through or seeing the success I had in my first cut. I started to wonder if I really wanted to have visible abs or if it just seemed like the thing I “should” do. But I felt like I couldn’t stop dieting either because I was scared I would regain the weight I worked so hard to lose. I felt that if I wasn’t (halfheartedly) counting macros, I would give in to emotional and distracted eating and quickly gain the weight back.
I found out about Lisa through Nicole Sachs and her work on TMS– I suffered from back pain and sciatica since I was 16, and finally had success with curing the pain using TMS/mindbody approaches. That experience helped me be open to taking a similar approach to my dieting issue. When Lisa spoke on Nicole’s podcast, it really resonated with me and I decided I needed to work with her.
Working with Lisa helped me realize that my TMS/chronic pain, emotional eating, and chronic dieting are all rooted in the same issues and come from the same place: repression of emotions, fear of failure, feeling the need to control everything, and lack of self-care. She taught me that your health is more than just your physical shape and weight and that it’s possible to maintain a healthy weight while not working against yourself and sacrificing your mental health and well-being. I see dieting and weight loss completely differently now, I listen to my body more than I ever have before, and I have begun to prioritize my own self care across many aspects of my life outside of eating. I am also working on taming my inner critic and being less of a people pleaser. I feel like I have a completely new perspective on how I want to move forward with my health – physical, mental, and emotional – going forward.
If you are considering signing up with Lisa, and especially if my story sounds familiar, I would highly encourage you to do it – it’s about more than just figuring out how to feed your body, but about addressing the underlying causes of dysfunctional eating so you can be free of “diet culture” forever.
"Thanks to my work with Lisa, I have a second chance at life. I finally learned to treat myself the way I deserve to be treated." - Brekke
I have been in some sort of therapy most of my life, and after decades of not getting anywhere, on the recommendation of a trusted friend, I started working with Lisa one-on-one in August 2019.
18 months (and one global pandemic) later I've made more progress than I did in 18 years of traditional talk therapy. Her brain science-based approach turned everything I thought I knew about myself upside down.
It wasn't easy. At times it made no sense to me, but Lisa has seen it all, and guided me along the best path for my particular journey. I feel hope. I feel promise. I feel like I'm going to be okay.
I didn't used to speak like this by the way. I used to think this was all bullshit. That god hated me (and sometimes I still do). But I've never been happier to be dead wrong.
Thanks to my work with Lisa, I have a second chance at life. I finally learned to treat myself the way I deserve to be treated -- with love, compassion and patience. To give myself a fucking break. To know that there's no way to avoid pain and to see it, love it and sit with it is the only way to heal.
"I feel a lot more present, with food certainly, and with eating, but just a lot more present in life in general." - Amanda
So I have been working with Lisa Schlosberg for about almost twelve weeks. I have been doing the group coaching holistic health program with Lisa and 15 other folks in our group and it has been a real game-changer for me. Really life-changing. Honestly, I am someone who has yo-yo dieted. I have tried every literal single diet known to humankind. And of course, none of them worked. When I found Lisa and when I found this group coaching program, I had this sort of knowing inside that this isn’t a diet and this would be something different and I signed up for it with a friend and that was really great to be able to go through this whole journey and go through this process with a friend as well, and I sort of just knew that something would different and I was absolutely right.
I am someone who has been in therapy and who has worked on trying to change their relationship to food and eating for a really long time. Therapy has been great and I have been able to chip away at the surface and make a few connections here and there but it wasn’t until I started doing this group with Lisa, that's where I started to see big changes happen. I feel a lot less anxious around food. I feel like I am less stressed out around food, around what I should or should not be eating. I feel a lot more present, with food certainly, and with eating, but just a lot more present in life in general. I feel a lot more present with my family, with my husband and with my son. I feel a lot more relaxed when I sit down to eat. And I say all of this to say that I am not a perfect eater and that is not the point of this program either. But I have a lot more presence and a lot more awareness and I am listening a lot more to my body and to what my body is asking me for. It has been a real game changer and I am so grateful that I found Lisa and that I found this group.
"My life feels happier, quieter." - Ilona
Working with Lisa as part of the Out of the Cave group coaching program has changed my life and my relationship with food forever! Not only did she help bring to light unhelpful patterns in my life, she also helped me connect the dots as to their origins.
Knowing how these patterns began allowed me to identify them more easily and choose a different way of doing things. I learned that feeling my feelings actually allowed me to move forward quicker. I am not always successful, as old patterns sneak up on you, but I can quickly identify them and try again next time.
My life feels happier, quieter.
Lisa helped me realize all of the noise I was creating to distract myself from feeling. I have changed long-standing habits that were no longer serving me. Most of all I have a community from my group members that are always available with supportive and encouraging words on days when I need them.
"I can’t tell you how freeing that has been to be able to see triggers and see challenges that happen to all of us in life, and to be able to process it so differently than I was before." - Lesa
My name is Lesa and I am an empowerment life coach. I came to Lisa when I was really struggling with a variety of food concerns. I was emotionally eating, I then was going to an extreme restriction on foods that I would eat, and then I would swing the other direction and just screw it all and eat whatever I wanted and binge eat. So, the consequence of all of that was that so much of my headspace, so much of my time, was being consumed with trying to figure out what to do. I knew it felt wrong, I knew that I was using food in ways that didn't serve me anymore, but I just didn’t know how to get out of the rut. I just felt incredibly stuck. So in working with Lisa, I began to understand that I can see these times when I am feeling really stuck as an actual signal and I can give myself the help that I need. But only through the tools that she has taught me. I have done so many things to try to help in the past but I really feel like Lisa’s program helped me to cut straight to the core of what I was needing to do to myself. So now I see these times as being signals when I can just sit back and relax into what I’m feeling and just allow it to bubble up and come up with some strategies to help myself and it’s been so empowering and really life-changing for me. I am so grateful for the things that I’ve learned in her program. So now I make decisions based on the true me. Instead of feeling, like oh I need to run to food to comfort myself or to manage whatever is going on, I can really determine and identify what my true need is and operate from that space rather than a space of fear. This really opened me up to not only to take this approach with just food but really to use this approach in every area of my life. I can’t tell you how freeing that has been to be able to see triggers and see challenges that happen to all of us in life, and to be able to process it so differently than I was before. Yes, it is still difficult, but it is difficult in a different way. It is difficult in a very empowering way instead of having all of my power being given over to food to cope. So that’s been incredible. If you’re thinking of working with Lisa through one of her programs, I would highly recommend it. The group support has been amazing and I learned so much through other people’s journeys as we share in our Facebook group and share stories of where we are at. I would 100% back this program. You won’t regret it.
"If you want to change your relationship with food and yourself, I highly recommend working with Lisa." - Jeff
I have always had a difficult relationship with food. I was the fat kid growing up and struggled with being bullied for it. I am a self-proclaimed "emotional eater," well, used to be. This program allowed me to realize "I don't have an issue with food, I have an issue with feeling my feelings." These are Lisa's words that stuck to me and I will never forget it! This group allowed me to develop a new relationship with food, explore my feelings, and develop a plan to change my outlook.
Lisa is hands down a great coach. There is a saying, "people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." Lisa cares!!! This is her passion and I could not help but to get caught up in it as well. If you want to change your relationship with food and yourself, I highly recommend working with Lisa. She will help you unpack your resistance, your reluctance and your downright stubbornness to not want to change. She will help you to develop clarity to work through and past your traumas, that left you coping using food. Once you clearly see it, you can't unsee it, thus you will begin the beautiful journey to living the life you know you are meant to live. Thank you Lisa for being you and showing up for me so I can show up for myself.
"Lisa was dedicated from the beginning to help me arm myself with the skills and confidence to reclaim my life and happiness from a lifelong eating disorder." - Keri
Individual Coaching: My name is Keri and I had the privilege of working with Lisa in individual coaching. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is struggling to find peace with themselves, their bodies, food and/or eating. Lisa was dedicated from the beginning to help me arm myself with the skills and confidence to reclaim my life and happiness from a lifelong eating disorder. I gained so much self-awareness and healing from our sessions together. I have worked with many professionals over the years but Lisa offered something no one had done before; she had walked the difficult road of recovery herself. That feeling of being understood by someone ahead of me on the path of healing was the greatest gift. She guided me on my journey as a source of wisdom, hope and love. I cannot recommend her strongly enough!
Group Coaching: Lisa’s beautiful honesty, love, passion and wisdom guided me on my path to more peace in my relationship with food, my body, and myself. Sharing and connecting with the other group members helped me to not feel alone on this journey. The videos and assignments challenged my thinking and opened me up to seeing things that my habitual patterns and limiting beliefs prevented. I will carry what I learned with me for the rest of my life. I highly recommend participating in this group experience!!
"Lisa’s lessons were perfectly timed with everything that was coming up for me as each week went along." - Jen W
Lisa’s wisdom with fear, her power to love and see me brought me to this program. My fear of food was so real but my fear of life and love was underneath all of it. Lisa created this safe space to allow me to be vulnerable and to allow myself to Feel. Lisa’s lessons were perfectly timed with everything that was coming up for me as each week went along. It’s like she knew without knowing. Lisa showed me how to reparent myself. To go back and sit with my inner child. To listen to her and to love her. And in doing so, I learned I was no longer alone.
Lisa helped guide me out of my own dark cave. I was afraid of the sun, afraid of my feelings, and afraid of any human connection. My advice, don’t run away. Move towards the sun, move towards your feelings and always move towards human connection. Lisa is a Gift to be opened when you’re ready to walk into your truth. When you’re ready to look deep into your own truth, to sit will all your fears, anything is possible.
"Now I feel a peace around food that I could never have believed was possible."
I so highly recommend that anyone who has struggled with the ramifications of years of dieting and body image issues seek out a chance to work with Lisa Schlosberg as soon as possible. I felt like I had hit a wall with just not being able to deal with my litany of eating and weight struggles anymore and knew I could not face another diet, but didn’t know what to do instead. I started working with Lisa and now I feel a peace around food that I could never have believed was possible. I have learned and grown so much through our work together and I will be forever grateful!
"I’ve learned how to heal old wounds, how to love myself no matter what and how to worry less about the things I cannot control." - Ivette
She’s not just a therapist, fitness, and health coach, she is a healer and has become my mentor. She’s an extremely wise woman that knows exactly what and how to say the things you need to listen in order to start working on your overall well-being. The World needs to listen to her, she is indeed life-changing. I now exercise and eat better because I want to. I take care of my body, my mind, and my soul because it is my wish, and no one else’s, to do it. I’ve learned how to heal old wounds, how to love myself no matter what and how to worry less about the things I cannot control. If I now feel so fulfilled, it is definitely because of her. I am and forever will be thankful to you, Lisa!! I love you very much!!
"Lisa has been such a blessing. She continues to teach me so much about myself throughout this process." - Kate
Trust me when I say I wasn’t sure “it would work.” I wasn’t even sure what “IT” was… If you are anything like me, you always do for others. It’s time to do you! It’s time to invest in your mental, emotional, and physical health… and YES, they are all VERY connected. (Something I had to learn). Lisa is unlike any therapist I’ve ever worked with before. I’ve learned coping mechanisms, the importance of positive self-talk, and how to be kind and patient with myself. I no longer label food as “good” or “bad” and am more in tune with my body, both emotionally and physically. Once I felt my feelings, I stopped eating them. I highly recommend taking this step and speaking with her. She will not disappoint. Lisa has been such a blessing. She continues to teach me so much about myself throughout this process. It has not been easy, but what I can promise you is if you are willing to do the work everything will change. Thank you, Lisa! You are a blessing!!
"I needed my conversations with Lisa in order to start having the right conversations with myself." - Rebecca
I found Lisa when I was in a very dark place with respect to my relationship to food and my body. I was literally searching for someone to tell me what to do – how to eat, which exercises to do, how much, and when, so that I could keep losing weight and not gain it back. But it turned out that wasn’t what I needed at all. I needed my conversations with Lisa in order to start having the right conversations with myself. In a very challenging time in my life (and in the world), because of her, I feel in control and strong. I see diet culture everywhere, and with each session I feel more comfortable rejecting it and instead, I am able to navigate through each day with “health” as my North Star. Lisa is hilarious, genuine, knowledgeable, and so approachable/flexible. She lifts people up by helping them get to know themselves (which is how ANY of this works…) and I cannot recommend Lisa highly enough if you’re ready tap into the true potential of your mental, physical, and emotional health!
"I have learned more from her than in all of my years of counseling." - Michelle
Working with Lisa has been a complete blessing! I have learned more from her than I have in all of my years of counseling. She “gets it” – she genuinely understands and helps you to understand your feelings and thoughts. Lisa has me thinking of things that I never even thought of – it is so very helpful. I felt very comfortable with Lisa and enjoyed our weekly sessions. She is so knowledgeable and has such great ideas and tips. I honestly will tell you, I believe I made a great investment with Lisa and I feel like I am finally on the right path to losing weight!
"She will help you set meaningful and realistic goals and support you the whole way through." - Cheryl
If you are ready to address your weight issues once and for all and get your strongest body, then Lisa is your perfect coach. If all you’re in it for is a meal plan and an exercise regimen, feel free to look elsewhere. Just remember Lisa and come back after it doesn’t work. And trust me, it won’t work permanently. Lisa’s holistic approach addresses how we arrived at the place we are in now. You will address your mind, body and spirit. True change comes from addressing all 3. She is warm, funny and wicked smart. She will help you set meaningful and realistic goals and support you the whole way through. She is passionate about helping you become a healthier you. Do yourself a favor and commit to working with her! You won’t regret it!!
"She really opened my eyes to look at food differently and go into it with a different mindset." - Cori
Where do I even begin? Before I met Lisa I never thought about where my weight loss issues began. I was constantly on diets growing up but then would gain my weight back plus some. Lisa made me realize that diet fads don’t work and that I needed a life style change. She would question me saying “what happens when the diet is over? Now what? What happens when you stop counting calories/tracking your food intake?” She really opened my eyes to look at food differently and going into it with a different mindset. She makes me think, and I hate thinking. I am used to people giving me answers and telling me what to do and how to do it. Not Lisa. She makes you use your mind and dig into those feelings. Even when she trains me, there are exercises I do that will make me feel uncomfortable, but uncomfortable is a good thing and it has made me a stronger person. Lisa is such a great person to work with.
"Her mind-body approach helped me begin the healing journey on a much deeper level." - Tania P
I wholeheartedly recommend the group coaching program. Lisa is an incredibly gifted and supportive coach. She has
the real-life experience of having been where we are. She also has the credentials, insight, compassion, empathy, and emotional intelligence which make her uniquely qualified to help others dealing with emotional eating, disordered eating, yo-yo dieting, body image issues, and the like. Her mind-body approach helped me begin the healing journey on a much deeper level.
"Because of Lisa, I have learned how to be my own best friend." - Princess
Lisa’s passion for helping individuals be the best, strongest, and compassionate versions of themselves shines through in her work. From her videos, which has made me learn so much about myself, to her one-on-one client work, Lisa is always able to curate teaching moments that lead to transformative action. Because of Lisa, I have learned how to be my own best friend, an advocate I can always count on. I’m so grateful for Lisa for all that she’s done and I’m so excited to see the inspiring work she continues to do each day!
"I spent the last 22 years of my life in diet hell, in pain and in fight mode against myself. Lisa helped me to get to a place of peace." - Maike
At my greatest desperation, I reached out to Lisa. I can honestly say that I’m not the same person anymore I was 8 months ago. I learned (and in some cases relearned) that there are many, many other ways in which I’m hungry than for food. I need sleep, I need rest, I need creativity, I need love, I need fresh air, I need movement, I need nutritional food…just like any other human being actually. I’m still learning to take care of myself more and more. I understand that my body was trying to protect me more than anything else. I got aware of so many emotions going on inside of me. I FEEL more then I thought possible or that there is. And I get aware more and more each day. It does take patience with yourself, and lots of it, to work with Lisa, but honestly, I would never ever again do it any other way. Because you know what? I found the freedom I thought I could only ever have as a slim person. The freedom to allow myself to eat whatever I want, whenever I want without guilt… I spent the last 22 years of my life in diet hell, in pain and in fight mode against myself. Lisa helped me to get to a place of peace. For anyone who is thinking about their next diet, PLEASE give Lisa a call beforehand.
"Lisa has helped me break through all my anxiety and work through it in a healthier way." - Deanna
Lisa has changed the way I view eating and living a healthy lifestyle IN EVERY WAY. I’ve always seen myself as the whole problem (the yo yo dieting, the constant diet plans since I’m 12 years old) instead of seeing the diet world/food industry as at least half or even MORE of the problem. She’s helped me find what’s really important: the way I FEEL when I eat well, live an active lifestyle. I’m a classic “I turn to food when I’m sad, anxious, angry” person. Instead of that, I now meditate, listen to music that makes me feel good, call a friend, work on a project at home, or do a 30 min workout that I ENJOY doing. Following a strict diet plan or counting calories/points/macros-whatever it is, just doesn’t work in the long run, plus it’s not important to me anymore. And Lisa has helped me break through all my anxiety and work through it in a healthier way. Plus her circuit workouts KILLL! But you know you’re getting the best workout/therapy session while listening to bomb music.
"If you are looking to break free from habits that are no longer serving you or supporting your goals, Lisa offers a way out." - Kristen
Lisa has opened the door to a new reality for me! With her help I’m starting to examine why I’ve been stuck in this cycle and ways to be free from it. I’m still learning and practicing the concepts that Lisa is sharing with me but I can report that everything she’s offered has been immediately actionable and makes sense. If you are looking to break free from habits that are no longer serving you or supporting your goals, Lisa offers a way out that is not tied to any products or workouts. I’m beyond grateful to Lisa for her guidance and support in helping me become the best version of myself!
"She has taught me more about my food issues than any diet class or program I have been involved with." - Amanda
Lisa understands eating disorders and food issues to the core. She is able to get to the root of our food issues on an individual basis and helps us to understand ourselves and why we do what we do… She motivates us to go beyond what we believe is possible. Lisa is a gift that has come into my life and exactly the right time. She is wise beyond her years because she has lived through a lot in her short time and persevered. Lisa sees all of her obstacles as necessary in order for her to understand herself and in turn, how humans operate as it relates to food. I have benefited greatly from Lisa’s support and personalized attention to my needs. She has taught me more about my food issues than any diet class or program I have been involved with (I’ve tried it all!!!). Please consider just one session with Lisa and I promise you won’t be disappointed. I couldn’t be more grateful for stumbling upon her FB page and having the opportunity to train with her- mind and body!
"Lisa embodies a rare combination of fiery, inspiring energy; tender compassion and authenticity; and a crisp, clear intelligence that cuts through the cultural noise to arrive at the Truth."
I’m 53, happily married for 30 years, and mother to three young adults who have mostly flown the nest. I am an Enneagram teacher, group facilitator, and guide-to-soul, with a focus on awakening from the trance of personality. I am a lifelong seeker after Truth. I've been on countless healing journeys— maybe it's all one long journey— and I love being a conduit for healing in others. Among other things, I’ve gotten sober (11 years+), gone on a vision fast in the desert, conquered a debilitating fear of public speaking, and created the peaceful, accepting family and home I longed for as a child.
However— body shame has been a recurrent issue for me for as long as I can remember, a treacherous and untouchable third rail. Until Lisa, I had never found a therapist or teacher or coach or guide who addressed this issue effectively when it came up, despite their expertise and excellence in other areas.
As a frequent participant and facilitator of transformative group work myself, I am very picky about my teachers. Lisa embodies a rare combination of fiery, inspiring energy; tender compassion and authenticity; and a crisp, clear intelligence that cuts through the cultural noise to arrive at the Truth.
From working with Lisa, I now understand that the harsh, negative, thought/feeling spiral of body shame was my psyche's way of trying to be safe, to belong, to survive in a world that worships thinness, beauty, and youth. I now understand that my attempts to escape by dieting, over-exercising, rigid "wellness" plans, etc., are (understandable!) addictions that keep me from the real work of discovering who I really am and living as my authentic self.
Over the past couple of years, chronic pain and sudden weight gain have forced me to confront how much my sense of identity was tied to my size, appearance, and capacity to use my body in productive ways. At first all I could feel was overwhelming shame and despair; all my energy was being sucked into coping with what was going on inside me. I had to pull back from doing the work I loved because I felt like I had nothing to give.
I am so grateful to have found Lisa and a community where it is safe to talk honestly about food and body image, where I am seen and understood, and where I can learn to practice a new way of being with myself and taking care of myself in a holistic way. I am slowly resuming my work with others, finding that I am able to be even more attuned, compassionate, and authentic. It is astounding how often food and body image comes up in my Enneagram work and finally I have understanding, tools and practices to address it, rather than avoiding it or passing on my own dysfunctional ways of coping with it.
If you are feeling alone in your suffering with food and body image, if it’s dawning on you that nothing you’ve tried so far has actually delivered what you’ve been seeking, if you are looking for the real deal: real healing, real tools, real freedom… you’ve come to the right place. Be brave, say yes, dive in!
