Lauren Canuel Holistic Approach to Weight Loss and Relapse Prevention
Psychotherapist Lauren Canuel, LICSW-ACSW-BCD, will speak about the different parts of our personality that determine whether we can succeed at weight loss forever. Through identification of negative beliefs systems, negative thought patterns, and discussion of the emotional eating cycle, she will give an overview of the types of cognitive behavioral therapy that she has been utilizing with her patients for almost 26 years. Lauren knows what works in weight loss, she lost 150 pounds 29 years ago and has kept it off.
Canuel knows what works in a weight loss program. Twenty-eight years ago, she weighed 285 pounds. But she lost the weight in 30 months and has managed to keep it off, even through two pregnancies. Today, at 135 pounds, Lauren is helping others realize the same success through her program that she created in 1989. Lauren grew up in a dysfunctional homThrough personal research, she discovered many different emotional reasons why people use food beyond its purpose of fuel for the body, whether from stress at work, problems at home or depression. Medical problems may also come into play. Going beyond exercise and nutrition, Canuel developed her own program that addresses what causes a person to overeat.
In developing her program, Canuel incorporated three important approaches to losing weight and preventing relapse. They are proper nutrition, need for consistent activity, and cognitive behavioral therapy to address the person’s mindset. This gives them the ability to change the emotional eating relationship he or she is having with food. For more information about Canuel visit online at www.laurencanuel.com.
