If you are ready to learn a new, small-steps approach, and are willing to show up with courage and be seen (flaws and all), More Heart, Less Body may be one of the best investments in your future self you'll ever make. 

But first, a warning.

As you learn about the More Heart Method, you may hear things that challenge what you believe to be true.
The mainstream weight loss advice you've been hearing for years is wrong.  

Dieting ​and exercise ​don't work. 

Lasting weight loss requires a fundamental shift in thinking.

The old approach to losing weight (dieting and exercise) doesn’t work. If it did, you wouldn’t be here right now. Your struggle with weight is not your fault. The deck has been stacked against you for the last 30 years. The big players in the weight loss industry have put corporate profits ahead of public health— and the mainstream advice about food, dieting, and exercise you've been following is simply not working.

Chasing the latest diet trends, sorting through heaps of contradictory advice, and figuring out how to actually make changes in your life can be a huge and overwhelming task. It's no wonder so many people struggle. But there is a simple, effective approach that doesn’t require counting calories, scoring points, starvation diets, cheat days or even eating tasteless meals out of boxes.

The old approach to losing weight doesn’t work.

How many times have you heard, “Just eat less and exercise more”?

​The truth: restrictive calorie dieting and repetitive cardio exercises set you up for long-term failure.

There are 4 problems with the old model of dieting and exercise:

You get stuck in yo-yo dieting cycles.

Research has proven that restrictive-calorie diets slow down your metabolism, so you end up gaining weight back faster than ever before. This is why so many people who diet tend to gain weight back quickly and end up stuck in a never-ending cycle of losing and gaining weight.

Your hormones get out of whack.

The food you eat has a huge impact on all the hormones in your body. One of the hormones that controls hunger (called leptin) plummets when you diet. The result?

Your appetite increases, you struggle with cravings, and you feel ravenous all the time. 

Your body can't heal.

Most of the mainstream exercise advice for weight loss causes more harm than good. Being overweight is a sign that something's not working right in your body, so adding too much or the wrong kinds of exercise hinders your body's natural healing process— often making it even harder to lose weight.

​The root cause of the problem is not fixed.

The old model simply doesn’t address any of the underlying root causes of your weight problems— like metabolic issues, emotional eating, or stress. Bottom line: You've got to uncover what's causing your weight issues to reach and maintain your ideal, comfortable weight. 

Your metabolism is broken.

Your weight problem is not your fault.

Whether you’ve dieted once or 100 times, you’ve already discovered that losing weight and keeping it off is nearly impossible. You're not alone.

95 %
of Dieters Fail

When your body holds on to extra fat, it’s a sign that something's not working right in your body.

95% of people who diet fail to keep the weight off. This is heartbreaking.

It's time for a new approach.

So, what is More Heart, Less Body?

More Heart, Less Body is the only mentor-guided, 9-month, step-by-step, weight-loss program for people who are ready to lose weight once and for all.

It's not a quick-fix, lose-weight-fast ​kind of program. 

  • ​It's a transformational, small-steps process that gives you the tools and support to finally ​reach your ideal, comfortable weight and keep it off forever— with ease.
  • ​It’s the only program that focuses on making lasting changes from the inside-out.
  • ​It’s a holistic, step-by-step process (using the More Heart Method) that teaches you exactly how to break free from old habits that no longer serve you.
  • ​It's a ​remarkably different approach that helps you design a new lifestyle— naturally transforming your body into ​your ideal, comfortable weight that is easy to maintain for life!
  • ​It's a heart-centered approach with a proven scientific foundation.

I want to say, this program has been the best thing I've done for myself in a very long time. For the first time EVER, my husband is all in! He has even had soup for breakfast and actually loved it. Things are looking up in the Carlisle household. I CAN DO THIS!!!!

—Cindy C

​​This is a complete program. There's no doubt in my mind. In more heart. You have a really great opportunity to journey with other folks who are just like you. And we don't judge each other. We're in the same place....

We're all learning together how to love unconditionally.

If I was trying to share a few things with someone trying to decide about about this... This is one of the best investments in yourself that you can make.

What drew me to the program? The whole idea that my weight wasn’t all my fault was so completely opposite of what I’d been told all my life. I’d been made to feel there was something inherently wrong with me as a person. I was afraid to believe you when you said that wasn’t true. I was a bit skeptical (and maybe even cynical) at first, thinking that a statement like that would be a great marketing ploy to draw people in. I am so glad I took that leap of faith! You have delivered everything you promised and more. Love you guys.”

—​Karen K

I felt like when I found more heart that it was a huge answer. It was finally some place that addressed all of the issues...For me it's been amazing. It’s an amazing program...I'm getting so much more from the program than just the cost of the program. My reason for joining was my Type 2 Diabetes, and just this week, my numbers came back better than they have ever been. If you're Diabetic, you'll understand that I was at a 12.2 at one point and I am now at a 5.9 A1C, and my glucose was in the three hundreds. It is now at 123.

All of a sudden realize you're stronger. And all of a sudden you realize's a better marriage and it's a better future. And the next thing you, we're having fun in the kitchen cooking, and we're eating healthy and. Would we ever have thought that we could get to this point? No. But we look back and we realize how far we've come and we're kind of excited about taking the next steps.

—​​Beth M

​I have lost weight without really trying, as in watching everything I eat or counting calories or any of that kind of hard work. I have become stronger. I am not out of breath as much. I am finding that I have more energy and I am finding that there are things I want to do that I hadn't wanted to do in a long time. At my last doctor's visit, my doctor suggested that we cut my cholesterol medicine in half.
