The CogniDiet® Program is open to both men and women. However only women have signed up so far for the group classes. Some women prefer the one to one setting in person or over the phone. Men have benefited from one-to-one counseling with Veronique.
Most participants are women who have been on a diet many times and for many years. They are looking for a new solution. They are ready to change something in their life style.
The program is not recommended if you have underlying food issues such as eating disorders (including anorexia or bulimia), are heavily depressed, or if food is your life and you are not really ready to change.
People with diseases such as diabetes, digestive issues such as celiac disease, allergies, etc. can benefit from the program, but they must of course also stay with their medical treatment program and dietary guidelines as recommended by their physician.
This program does not tell you what to eat. The CogniDiet® Program only educates you on mindful eating habits, how to change your behaviors, portion control, the basics of protein, carbohydrates, fiber and fat, and the physiological impact of stress on your body and appetite.
Those with specific dietary issues or questions can schedule additional one-to-one nutrition counseling sessions.
