Step 4 To Achieving Independence From Your Food Obsessions
In this series I am explaining the 7 steps to achieving Independence from your food obsessions. So far we’ve talked about:
Step 1 – Tuning In
Step 2- Discover
Step 3- Clear
Today we are going to discuss step 4 which is RELEASE.
In order to be free from your food obsessions, you need to release them.
Release and clear are two very similar concepts, however with regards to the Synergy Weight Release System™, when I refer to release I am referring to the process of releasing the story, releasing the attachment to the outcome, releasing the HOW that it’s going to happen, and releasing the need for this obsession in your life.
Step 3 to Achieving Independence from Food Obsessions
If there was any step that is more important than all the others when it comes to eliminating your food obsessions, I would say it would be step 3.
In my last two blog posts we went over Step 1 – Tuning In, and Step 2 – Discovery. Once you’ve Tuned in and discovered what’s at the heart of your food obsessions, now you can move on to Step 3 – the Clearing step!
The reason why the clearing step is the most important, is because of the way we are wired. Science has shown, that by the time we reach adulthood, 95% of what we do, think, and feel are conditioned subconscious programs. read more
Step 2 to Achieving Independence from Food Obsessions
My unique, 7 step system for releasing weight without diets or deprivation, is the Synergy Weight Release System. Yesterday we talked about the first step on the road to gaining independence from food obsessions being Tuning In.
Today we’ll discuss the second step which is…Discover.
You’ll want to have a journal handy because you will want your discoveries handy for Step 3, which I’ll dive into tomorrow.
If you read my post from yesterday, you will have seen all the ways in which you want to tune in. When you tuned in, what did you discover?
This is especially important when it comes to your eating habits and food obsessions.
Step 1 To Achieve Independence from Your Food Obsessions
In yesterday’s blog post I talked about the desire to achieve independence from food obsessions. Frankly, it’s not enough to simply desire weight release. On a side note: I use the term weight release because weight release is not only losing the excess pounds, but it’s also a mindset transformation. Weight loss is simply a result of dieting, and is usually short lived. Energetically when you lose something you do everything in your power to get it back. That’s weight loss in a nutshell. On the other hand, when you release, you set it free, you experience a shift that results in long lasting results.
In order to achieve the release as opposed to the loss, it’s not enough to simply desire the number on the scale going down. That’s one of your intentions, yes most certainly, however you’ll want to intend deeper and that is to desire to be free from your food obsessions. Once you clear your food obsessions your body naturally transforms, and your behaviors change quite effortlessly and intuitively.
Today is Day 1 of 7, where I will teach you the key ingredients needed to achieve independence from your food obsessions.
Do You Want Independence from Your Food Obsessions?
You want to release weight, that’s what’s important to you right? Well, releasing weight is the end result that you’re seeking. The main reasons diets fail is because diets focus on the body, with the ultimate goal being weight loss. Diets act as a band-aid to a problem. Can you lose weight on a diet? Absolutely! Will you have long lasting results? For 95% of people who go on diets, the answer is NO.
Diets tell you “If you eat this way you will lose weight.”
However for most people, what they eat is not nearly as important as why they eat. I have been a vegetarian for 20 years, and I still battled weight issues, until I realized that I needed a mind, body, spirit approach to weight release; not just a diet which only focused on my body and the food I put into it. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that I advocate eating a diet that consists mainly of fried foods, or fast food, or even processed foods, what I am suggesting is that once you focus on the integration of your body, mind, and spirit, you will naturally and intuitively eat what’s best for your body. I have seen this again and again with my clients. read more
How to Break Through Your Weight Set Point (Part 3)
EFT Tapping points
Today I am going to explain an easy technique, called EFT, which stands for Emotional Freedom Technique, that is a powerful tool to shift your weight set point, as well as delete old subconscious programs that no longer serve you.
First of all if you answered the questions on fear or old stories that were the focus of the last two blog posts, you will also want to use EFT tapping on the results of those results.
But first, if you are unsure of what EFT is or how it works, I recommend clicking here for a complimentary video lesson and downloadable worksheets.
Once you see how it works and practice a bit, you can use it to tap on instructing your body to create a new weight set point.
An example of how to tap on a new weight set point, I would use the conversational tapping approach and simply tap on the EFT tapping points on the head and torso, as shown in the photo above while stating your new desired weight set point. See below for a sample tapping exercise: read more
How to Break Through Your Weight Set Point (Part 2)
If you’ve been following this mini series of shifting your weight set point, you’ve probably started thinking about ways in which your subconscious behavior supports your weight set point.
In yesterday’s post I offered up 8 questions to get your mind working to see what’s keeping your weight set point securely rooted. The questions centered around fear. Many times we there’s underlying fear that prevents us from releasing weight.
Today I’m going to talk about stories.
Are your stories keeping your weight set point alive and well?
Stories are those conscious or subconscious messages that we believe or that we’ve been conditioned to believe about our situation, our weight, our life, etc. read more
How to Break Through Your Weight Set Point (Part 1)

Ask yourself the following questions: read more
What Your Weight Set Point is Telling You
Every thing in our life has a set point; your money, your success level, and even your weight.
When you examine your past and graph out your weight ranges and the duration of time that you weighed in those specific ranges, you will learn a lot about your weight set point.
For me, I have two very defined weight set points. These two set points are weights in which my body gravitates back to, if I don’t rewire them at the energetic and subconscious level. The first weight range is 160-169, which for my height is considered overweight. The second is 140-145, which is considered within a healthy range for my height (5’2″) and age.
When I graph out my weight over my adult years, it looks like a bell curve:
How to Set the Foundation for Weight Release
Before your set out on your weight loss journey, it’s best to approach it from a place where your efforts will be maximized. What I mean by this is, say for example you enter the metaphorical doorway, you set your intention to “lose 40 pounds,” you either start a diet, or an exercise regimen, or you do your own thing. Do you want to set yourself up for failure or success?
You’re probably thinking, “Success, of course!” Well great, you have a positive intention. But what happens to so many people when they start out on this journey is that they haven’t set the foundation. Their inner vibration is not in alignment with their desire of losing, or in my world, releasing weight. So the foundation ends up being cracked, or wobbly, or completely broken and dilapidated.
The most effective way to set the foundation for success is to get into the Zone from the starting gate! You may be familiar with the works of Abraham-Hicks; they call this place the Vortex.
