What is Different with Veronique’s Method? Well, She Lost 30 lbs. in 2006. And They Never Came Back.

Over the years she has come to understand the challenges and barriers people face when making health choices and, in particular, when trying to lose weight for life. It’s not easy! so just being on a diet is not enough. the weight always comes back.

As a top pharmaceutical executive with over 20 year experience, Veronique gained extensive knowledge in health and disease related issues pertaining to neurology, brain chemistry, depression, obesity, diabetes and smoking addiction.

This experience developed her ability to translate science into meaningful, clear and digestible guidance for her weight loss clients. She understands how to lead and motivate individuals through life altering changes.

She herself lost 30 lbs. since 2006 and kept them off. She is an ovarian cancer survivor and learned the hard way what stress can do to you.

Because sustained change requires new thoughts and new behaviors, Veronique studied meditation and pursued additional training in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Neuroplasticity and Emotional Brain Training (EBT) and other stress relief techniques in order to incorporate these important elements into The CogniDiet® Weight Loss Programs. It is the combination of all this that makes the CogniDiet® a succesful and unique program.
