Finally hit your goals without stress, guilt, or deprivation
No rigid diet rules or forbidden foods
Make food choices that match your personal values
Proven results, even if other approaches failed
I’d let my eating get pretty out of hand for a couple of years, put on a few extra pounds I wasn’t too happy about, and was generally feeling out of control when it came to food. Every time I tried to make a change, it just felt overwhelming and like I’d have to be miserable for X number of months before I could finally see a change.
But working on my eating skills has been a totally different experience. Within 2 weeks I’d completely cut out snacking, just by making a few small adjustments to my meals. And slowing down my eating and being more present in my meals cut my appetite down from NONSTOP OMG I COULD EAT A HORSE AT ANY TIME OF DAY to that of a normal person.
I no longer feel like my appetite and cravings control me, and I’m able to enjoy my food way more. And that’s all without cutting a single food group or type of food from my diet. And yeah, I’ve also lost 5 or 6 pounds, which is super cool. But the changes in my relationship to food and the feeling of taking real steps to align myself with my values have actually been way bigger and more important to me.
Use Eating Skills to Break the Diet Cycle
You buy the books and fill your fridge with things you’re allowed to eat. You even see some success early on. But sooner or later you’re back on the couch crying into two sleeves worth of Oreo crumbs about how your parents never taught you willpower.
Here’s the good news: It’s actually not you. Conventional diets and nutrition plans only work for about 5% of people. For everyone else they leave you right back where you started, or worse.
That’s why we’ve created an entirely new nutrition experience based on what actually helps people get lasting results.
The key is, instead of rigid food rules that add stress and guilt to your life, we teach you fundamental eating skills that lead to effortless progress on your nutrition goals.
Why Skills Eat Diets for Lunch
Strict diet rules work great until you’ve got a sick kid, a work deadline, and half a leftover pizza in the fridge. That’s where skills come in. Instead of judging each food decision as right or wrong, skills help you navigate the complexities of eating in the real world.
Replace Rigid Rules with No-Fail Flexibility
Your life doesn’t play by dietary rules. You can force it to for a little while, but it’ll usually find a way to break them. With skills you’re not expected to do it perfectly every time, so you really can’t fail. You just keep practicing and getting better.
Stay in Control Even When Life Gets Crazy
Sometimes the shit hits the fan. No time to shop, much less cook. And all you really want is a double-double and extra fries. Since skills don’t rely on sticking to a specific plan, they help you roll with the punches and still stay on track with your actual goals.
Make Nutrition an Effortless Part of Your Life
New skills are tough at first, but the more you practice the easier they get. So making food choices that work for you takes less and less energy over time. Which frees you up for your training and all the other stuff you wanna do.
The point is that developing your eating skills will help you stick to your goals and values around food, whatever those are.
So it doesn’t matter if you’re trying to lose weight or gain it, cut out a certain type of food or be healthfully omnivorous, eat for high performance or maintain a happy status quo. Eating Skills will help you make painless progress in the direction you want to go.
But progress is only valuable if it lasts. We designed Eating Skills to help you improve your relationship with food for the long-term.

Until we met Josh Hillis.
We first knew Josh as a GMB client. Turns out he’s also an author and coach, who’s currently doing a thesis about behavioral science and emotional eating.
But it was only when some of our staff members got great results from his private coaching that we realized he has the exact expertise our clients have been looking for.
Since then he’s become our go-to guy for all things eating related. We even started referring clients to him. So when the opportunity presented itself we just decided to hire him.
Together we figured out how give you his sought after coaching results without the cost of private sessions.

Chocolate chip cookies are the only thing that got me through the first year of raising twins. But it was getting out of control. I tried all the big names in diet companies. But I dreaded those diets because they made me obsess about every single thing I ate. And weighing in constantly was at best short-term motivation, and at worst totally demoralizing.
As I’ve been working on eating skills my anxiety and obsession around food has started to fade. The voice in the back of my head that said “screw it! you’re going to fail anyway” didn’t fit in because I wasn’t depriving myself yet I was still losing weight. Over the holidays, I lost 6 lbs without even realizing it — because these skills have now become a habit.
Since starting, I’ve lost 52 lbs. But that is really the least of it. I’ve gained self-compassion, and confidence in myself and what I am actually able to do with the right tools.
Make Eating the Way You Want an Effortless Part of Your Life
Before now these skills were basically only available through private coaching, which can cost thousands of dollars over the time it takes to get proficient in them. Eating Skills gives you the education, coaching, and community you need to transform your relationship with food for life, all for the cost of one or two private coaching sessions.
Even if other nutrition approaches haven’t worked, Eating Skills will help you take control of your nutrition and make meaningful progress on your goals. When you sign up, you get 6 months of access to the teaching, coaching, and community you need to build skills you’ll use for life.
Eating Skills Will Help You Get Results, Guaranteed.
After the first four weeks, if you’re not making better food choices with less stress, we don’t want your money. Send us an email, and we’ll give you a full refund that you can put towards a few weeks of keto meal replacement shakes. You can see all the details here.
