|This emotional eating program originally started off as a group coaching course. Through the course, many participants received deep breakthroughs for emotional eating problems which they had battling with for many decades of their lives. Many of them walked away with the bulk, if not all, of their emotional eating issues resolved and a renewed set of eating habits.
Don’t just take my word for it. Check out the testimonies of fellow emotional eaters who had taken this program:
“ LOVED IT! Celes was very clear and easy to follow… Material was excellent and engaging. I found Celes’ viewpoints invaluable and very helpful in helping me to truly identify the emotions and the varying levels. Helped me to see that they are not necessarily only how I would view them but that there is much more to be gained by digging deeper.
This program is full of revelations and real tools for eradicating emotional eating once and for all. Having overcome these challenges personally, Celes serves as a great inspiration and presenter. The meager monetary investment in this coursework, has undoubtedly saved me hundreds of dollars in drawn out counseling sessions, as Celes’s instruction is focused and deep.
Celes, thank you from the bottom of a very grateful heart for this amazing program. I have learned more here (about emotional eating) than over the past 40 years. This program has helped me understand so much more about myself and unrealized destructive patterns. It has given me great hope for my future as I continue to change the feelings, thoughts and messages that I process about myself and my food/eating habits. I can’t thank you enough, Celes!!! ”

*Update from Lisa, two weeks after completing the program:
“ Hi Celes!!
Since your EE program, I am on a wonderful journey of healing and wholeness. I have since joined a 12 Step program and have been abstinent from sugar, flour and wheat since August 1st. As of Sept 1st, I am down 17 pounds and am loving my new way of eating whole, fresh and tasty foods while monitoring any mental and emotional triggers. I have been exploring the pillars in detail while working through my food addiction. I’ll have to update you as I go through them since I’m doing ALOT of journaling these days.
Again, thanks so much for all you have given me! May the Lord richly bless you! Stay in Touch!
Peace and Love,
“ I am a happy soul and have always joked that it’s because I have three awesome things to look forward to every day: breakfast, lunch, dinner! Eating food made me ecstatic in the past. But I gradually realized that I had taken my health for granted, and I would save both money and years of my life if I was able to understand exactly why I always found it hard to say no to food.
The EE course was very useful to my life. I didn’t realize that I was trying to use food as a substitute for so many things, including love and excitement. Doing Module 1 alone made me realize that I have areas that I need to address in order to eliminate unwanted side effects (one of which is emotional eating). I really, really appreciated going through the 3-step process to correcting a mis-belief (covered in Module 2), because I can use this process for non-eating-related issues as well.
I have learned so much not only about understanding and managing my EE tendencies, but also a surprising lot about myself. Especially during Module 3 as we dug to the root of our spiritual self, I found a lot of of baggage that had been weighing me down absolutely without my knowing. I also learned how this spiritual baggage had been causing me to reach out for food as a form of physical comfort/punishment.
It was very strange and scary, but also very helpful. Now I feel braver in speaking to myself and telling myself the truth, something that I had been subconsciously avoiding before. I also found it entirely surprising that EE is “supported” by multiple pillars (not just emotional) and eliminating the problem is not just a matter of controlling physical cravings. Girls my age (early 20s) often state that they are on this or that new fad diet, but just as often, they end up falling off such diets and proving that these are only temporary solutions and they are not getting to the root of why they need to go on such diets in the first place.
[Thanks to the program,] I have also opened my mind to ways of communicating more openly with my parents. I always thought my mom would be impossible to reason with in terms of food but I have started the process of communicating more openly with her about EE and she has been surprisingly receptive. I would definitely recommend this program to others! ”
~ Jodi, early 20s, who had been raised in the culture of food since she was young
“I had been an emotional eater all my life. Prior to doing this program, I had become very tired of fighting this battle with food. I wanted to be in control of my relationship with food once again. I knew what I need to do—that I should not turn to eating as a way to feel better—but once I start, I could not stop!
Doing this program, I learned not to shove down my “issues” to deal with them later; I learned to deal with them now. I loved how you helped us to think things through, using the guiding questions in the exercises and the lessons presented in each module. You provided suggestions without telling us what the problems were. You helped us to come to the conclusions ourselves.
Module 2 on the Mental Pillar made me look at the roots of my actions and why I do the things I do, whereas I never used to give much thought to my actions in the past. The three-step method (Uncover, Challenge, Correct) has been immensely helpful in bringing awareness to my previously unexplanable emotional eating triggers.
Now, I finally know the subconscious beliefs that had been triggering me to eat, whereas I would eat blindly, on autopilot, without realizing what just happened until I had downed a box of donuts. I intend to apply this method to all issues in my life that I’m struggling with from now on, beyond just emotional eating.
This program has enabled me to uncover deeper, underlying issues, behind my emotional eating problems. While I can’t say that I have fully overcome my emotional eating yet, I’m making more progress than I ever have in the past, thanks to the materials and tools you have provided. I look forward to the day when I can tell everyone that emotional eating is no longer an issue in my life.
I can’t think of what you can do to improve the program. I hope you can benefit more emotional eaters out there and put them out of their pain with the tools provided here. Thank you Celes. ”
