DO YOU .....
- Struggle with your food and body image?

WOULD YOU LIKE TO.....
- Remove yourself from the emotional and toxic diet culture we live in?
- Learn to be at peace with your body?
- Achieve an authentic, valued, and healthy life?
IF YOUR ANSWER IS YES, then the Intuitive Eating Essentials Program is for YOU!
Intuitive Eating is all about making peace with food, and your body.
Research consistently shows that diets do not work, but in our world the entire perception of health and fitness is molded by a diet mindset. Many of us reach the point where we are done with obsessing about what, how much, and when to eat each meal and snack. We know there must be a better way, but walking away from dieting means letting of many pre-conceived “truths,” and intuitive eating can feel radical!
Intuitive eating will help you let go of the diet mentality by learning to distinguish between physical and emotional feelings, trust your own inner wisdom, and ultimately make peace with food and discover true satisfaction in eating.
Intuitive Eating Essentials is a self-paced program that will help you explore your relationship with food, and help you integrate intuitive eating into your life.
IMAGINE BEING ABLE TO.......
- Eat all foods without guilt or judgement!
- Stop bashing your body!
- Listen to your body’s true needs & find creative ways to provide them
- Live your life from a place of self-acceptance & compassion
By working through the Intuitive Eating Essentials program, you will see changes in yourself like:
- Being able to enjoy all foods with satisfaction, rather than guilt
- Feeling happier and healthier
- Recognizing that your worth is not determined by the shape or size of your body -- but so much more!
“Learning the skills and mindset of Intuitive Eating with Erica Leon has been truly a transformative experience. I’d been in the diet-cycle for most of my life and had no idea how damaging it had become. I’d developed a set of rules, low self-esteem, and guilt for not having the discipline to “fix” this aspect of my life. Through this journey, Erica, the guest speakers, and the other women in this e-course-turned-family and support group have helped me see the world through fresh eyes and being to reclaim ownership over my body and my nutrition.”
I came to Erica expecting that she’d help me find solutions, boundaries and an expectation for what nutrition should be, instead I found comfort, healing and a whole new approach to living. This is the best decision I’ve ever made.”

" I have done many diets and spent most of my life struggling with my weight. After meeting Erica and now working with her both individually and in her group program, I quickly realized that this was something different, this was something I can manage and do for the rest of my life.
Intuitive eating is not a diet -- it is just paying attention to food and listening to my body, I have not done for years. At times, it has been a struggle to be an intuitive eater but I have seen so many changes in myself. I am no longer a slave to the scale and I eat what I like! I eat without guilt and have started to enjoy food again. I owe much of my success to the support and encouragement I have received from Erica. She is amazing! Thanks again!"
