(formerly Stop Dieting, Start Living).


Do you feel like food runs your life? Do you go in for one cookie and suddenly find yourself holding the empty bag, wondering what the hell just happened?

Are you tired of starting diet after diet, only to regain every last pound every time?

Do thoughts of food haunt you to the exclusion of every other wonderful thing in life? Do you ever wonder what you could be doing with that time if your diet wasn’t a full-time job??

Yeah, that was me too – until I stopped dieting for good and dared to eat…as much as I wanted, when I wanted, without guilt, and in total freedom.

I didn’t learn to do this overnight, though. I had to learn the skills of normal eating because I’d been ignoring my appetite and food desires for so long. It took a long time as I muddled through all the advice of Health at Every Size® and the non-diet approach of intuitive eating.

And that’s why I created this class — to save you from all that muddling and get you on your way to a life free of food preoccupation restricting, binge-eating, and weight worries.

I’ve designed this 25-day online group coaching program to help you get free of the diet-mindset crazies. To help you finally get normal with food. To help you say good-bye to dieting forever with confidence.

This course is for you if you

  • struggle with learning how to eat normally
  • like to read and ingest knowledge in bite-sized chunks
  • are ready to do a little bit of work each day to further your progress
  • want access to an expert to guide you along the way

In this course, you will learn how to

  • ditch diet-mind for good
  • tune into your hunger and fullness
  • eat more intuitively
  • address overeating and binge eating
  • deal with negative thoughts around food and your body
  • …and more!

This isn’t another diet or weight loss plan. This is about healing your relationship to food and your body. You’ll learn the skills you need to do those things, and you’ll practice them a little bit every day.

How it works

You’ll get an e-mail from me Monday through Friday that discusses an aspect of the non-diet approach and includes a hands-on activity where you actually get to practice the mindful eating skills you need to get free of the diet mindset and eat normally. I’ve designed the program for busy people who don’t have more than 10-20 minutes in their day to devote to this process. If you’re willing to put in a little bit of consistent effort, you’ll be rewarded with some amazing results when it comes to your eating.

There will be 2 group coaching calls during which we will review the material covered and then talk about it together. These calls are a chance to learn from me as well as from each other. If you can’t make one or any of the calls or if you’re a bit shy, you can e-mail me your question(s) ahead of time before the call and I’ll answer them (anonymously) during the call. The call will be recorded and you’ll get the link the following Monday in case you missed it.

Look what people are saying about Dare to Eat (formerly Stop Dieting, Start Living):

The first thing I loved about the course is that it was very well put together and I could tell a lot of time and thought had been put into the progression and format. It made sense.  When it comes to courses and educational programs, being a teacher has given me high expectations and a good sense for when something has been crafted and well thought out. As far as this course was concerned, I was completely impressed!

I really liked the idea of taking little steps towards change and then allowing it to become second nature, and I have certainly found these changes have filtered through to become second nature as promised. But also, taking smaller steps was much less overwhelming than some of the other material I’ve come across, while still being as profound and personally impacting.

The conference calls were super helpful. It was amazing to be able to benefit from your personal support, Glenys, but also to hear from the other participants. I really appreciated their questions and points of view as well. I also really appreciated being able to make contact with you by email during the week with questions. Your responses were super speedy and always friendly and helpful.

As far as value for money, this course was outstanding. I’ve needed something like this for a while, as I’ve felt stuck in a rut with this process in recent times, and this was the first time I had come across a course that was accessible to me financially. Thank you for making this possible!

Lastly, and certainly not least, I really enjoyed your manner, Glenys. You were very friendly, encouraging and positive throughout the course. I also really appreciated your sense of humor as this really appealed to me, and your ability to be both professional and very honest and real was fantastic. It’s been a privilege being able to get to know you a little bit 🙂 As a (shy-ish) extrovert, being in contact with people who are friendly and personable energizes me and engages me in what’s going on. This works for me personally much better than someone who is more formal and neutral 🙂   -E.C.


I am in recovery from binge eating but at one point, my eating patterns started to resemble a diet. I knew diets didn’t work and I needed a balanced approach to eating. This is exactly what the course gave me. I now have the tools to put food in its proper place while enjoying it to its fullest.  -Briana



This course was perfect for me! The daily emails introduced small incremental changes that built my eating awareness without being overwhelming. The coaching calls were a great opportunity to ask questions and learn from others’ experiences. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to ditch dieting and learn to listen to body cues! -K.A.


Top notch course! This was a very interesting course. Made me stop and think about issues that I hadn’t considered before. The exercises were easy to incorporate into my daily life. I feel very confident that I can continue on with them and the other lessons that I learned. Highly recommend this course to anyone looking to stop their endless cycle of dieting and learn to embrace their true self.  -M.P.
