Dear Busy, High-achieving Woman–
Are you tired of struggling with diets that don’t work, weight loss plans that don’t fit your life, and food plans that leave you feeling ineffective and deprived?
Let’s be honest. Overeating and emotional eating don’t happen because you don’t know what you “should” be doing. Overeating is complicated, weight loss can be a real struggle, and life can present A TON of potential obstacles: a busy life with limited time to plan; not knowing what else you could do instead of overeating; feeling uncontrollable hunger or feeling uncontrollable cravings; feeling tired, stressed, or overwhelmed and turning to food to help you manage; and feeling like you’ve tried and failed so many times to manage your eating differently.
Weight loss Plans and healthy eating programs that don’t address these obstacles don’t help!
In fact, sometimes, they make the problem worse. When these programs fail you, it’s easy to feel like you did something wrong. Years of dieting can shake the confidence of even the smartest and most successful women–I see it happen all the time (and you probably know exactly what I’m talking about)!
If you don’t address the things that have prevented lasting success with overeating and emotional eating in the past, you are likely to stay stuck in a vicious cycle.
And there’s more . . .
Stress, overwhelm, being too busy, sleep deprivation, and a life out of balance can all cause physical changes that increase your appetite, decrease your metabolism, and leave you feeling hungrier than ever.
Diets, deprivation, and willpower aren’t the answer. They don’t work, they wear you out, and they are probably making things even worse.
The good news is–there IS a better way!
I’m Dr. Melissa McCreery. I’m a clinical psychologist and an internationally certified life coach. I am passionate about helping women take control of emotional eating and overeating and create lasting health, weight loss and peace with food. I’ve been showing my clients how to do this since 1989, and along the way I’ve met far too many women who have wasted WAY too much of their life caught in vicious cycles with overeating, overload, and overwhelm. I’ve also seen too many smart, talented women lose their belief in themselves, their confidence, and even their hope..
You don’t need another diet. If you are like most women who struggle with overeating, what you need are the tools to help you get to the root of your overeating so that you can stop the hunger and the cravings, make peace with food and move on with your life.
Do you eat when you are overwhelmed, stressed or tired?
Emotional eating is a struggle that haunts many smart, successful women.
Please listen carefully: There is a way to take control of overeating and emotional eating–and it may be simpler and more straightforward than you think.
Introducing the Emotional Eating Toolbox™ Take Action Series:
Discover how to take control of overeating and emotional eating—once and for all—in a way that works for you and your life.
The Emotional Eating Toolbox™ Take Action Series is my self-guided emotional eating program.
Please note: If you are looking for another six week crash diet program, this is NOT the program for you. This program is not about deprivation or going hungry. It is not about counting calories or carbs or fat grams. The Emotional Eating Toolbox™ Take Action Series shows you how to feed yourself in a way that is really truly satisfying. A major rule in this program is to respect your hunger and to feed yourself in the MOST SATISFYING WAY POSSIBLE. Please understand: this is not another diet.
Here’s just some of what you’ll learn with the Emotional Eating Toolbox™ Take Action Series:
“Right now the food issue feels very much like a non-issue. I’m not turning to food when I get stressed. . . I started a new program to control the beginnings of diabetes. Oh what a difference after our work together! I’m able to follow the plan with no problems and no desire for any of my old comfort foods (which are terrible for blood sugar)! I have none of the obsessive and terrified thinking that if I don’t do this perfectly and get my situation under control I’ll get sick. I feel so incredibly relaxed, knowing that I can do what I can do and that I can release the results. There is no sense of angst or fear or compulsion. This NEVER would have happened before working with you one-on-one and taking your programs. I’m so glad I followed my intuition and did them. I can’t thank you enough.”
Emotional Eating Toolbox Take Action Series Participant and Private Client Mary M., Bellvue, Colorado
How the Emotional Eating Toolbox™ Take Action Series Works:
The foundation of the program is my Emotional Eating Toolbox™ 28 Day Daily Action Plan Program (you can read about it by clicking the link). The Emotional Eating Toolbox™ is a self-guided program that structures 28 days of change. It walks you step by step through the specific tasks, exercises, questions and challenges you need to undertake to escape from yo-yo dieting, food obsession, binge eating, or feeling out of control with food.
The Take Action Series takes a great program and makes it better and even more comprehensive.
The Take Action Series combines the structure and power of the Emotional Eating Toolbox™ program with a powerful audio series focused on giving you more tools, more skills, examples, strategies, and coaching for taking control of emotional eating and overeating. The training series you’ll receive will get you using the tools, help you predict the situations and triggers that might be sticky for you, and show you what to do about that. These training audios show you how to handle confidence traps, motivation challenges, and triggers to overeat that you aren’t sure how to deal with. These training calls are not repetition of the original Emotional Eating Toolbox™, they are six hours of additional, powerful material. As an added bonus, the Take Action Series also provides you with an online system for staying on track and setting weekly goals.
“This program has been life changing. So many programs only scratch the surface–and I’ve tried lots of them. When I think of the thousands of dollars I’ve spent in gyms and programs–I could have bought a car–and here comes this program that makes it so simple, that lays it right out. Melissa McCreery has topped an industry that has made millions for the many weight loss gurus who think they have the answer, but who has not yielded the results… She’s on to something big! Hats off to her!” Emotional Eating Toolbox™ user Juliet, Naperville, Illinois
“I was stuck. Stuck in a rut…stuck in life…stuck being unhappy about my choices. Food was the way I coped sometimes. . . Your class really helped me realize that when I get bored, I eat. Then, I feel guilty and horrible about myself for eating that cookie and eat again to make myself feel better. . . Your class taught me to recognize the problem at hand that makes me want to eat, and then gave me the tools to handle it. I can’t think of a better course than that!!” Ronda Stephens-Auclair Emotional Eating Toolbox™ Group Participant, owner of www.MoreThanAMouse.com
“Melissa, I can’t tell you have much I’ve gained since I “met” you & started using your Emotional Eating Toolbox™. I was skeptical about the program at first because you didn’t give me the “answers” up front—you don’t say, ‘Here are the 10 steps to follow & voila! You’re cured.’ Instead, you gave me simple, non-time-consuming tools which taught me about myself… What I discovered by using the tools in the Emotional Eating Toolbox program is that I have a host of hungers (for friendship, for sleep, for relief of anxiety, for relaxation as well as for physiological nourishment). It was so obvious that food didn’t solve the real problem of loneliness, fear or whatever. Through the program, I found and started using other better options. The way you helped us set goals & be accountable for our actions was a big help. I don’t think I’d have done it if left to my own devices. I cannot believe how much my behavior has changed over time. One small step at a time really adds up to some big changes!’” Marcy L., Florida
You’ll receive six hour-long Take Action Training Modules, and I’ll ask you to listen to one each week. In each hour-long module, I address an important tool or aspect of making peace with food and ending of vicious cycles with weight, compulsive eating, and emotional eating. The content is information-rich and designed to help you stay motivated, move through the Emotional Eating Toolbox™ program, and work through your own individual challenges and hurdles.

“The Coaching Clubs have been a valuable experience for me. The insight from Melissa and the other members has changed the way I see myself and how I approach my weight loss goals. Finally after many years of being stuck, I feel I have the tools to make changes and have found a community of women to support those changes with their compassion, experiences and humor.” Rosemarie, New York
“The journey towards getting my eating under control is a long one, BUT it’s taken me 50 years (think of that!!) to develop all these unhealthy habits. I’ve tried and abandoned many many approaches. Melissa’s methods make sense, are understandable, and if I do my part, I’m sure I’ll have much greater control over my mindless and instinctive approach to eating This IS a journey, for sure!” Diane Parks, Emotional Eating Toolbox™ Take Action Series Participant, owner www.lightandshadowsphotos.com
“I feel incredible—re-jazzed and ready to move on—it was very validating to know what I was feeling/experiencing was not unusual and I wasn’t alone. I’m leaving with the tools to move forward and be successful. Even if I get sidetracked again I know how to come back to center.” “Your Next Step” Attendee Deb K., Washington
The Emotional Eating Toolbox™ Take Action Series Includes:
“I just want to say, that you´re amazing! All the women that I work with and my girlfriends seriously need to know about your work, because it really stands out from the fitness world and most women magazines way of dealing with the food/weight issue. I myself work within the fitness industry and in this world, the things you put words to just seems to be such a taboo and embarrassing subject that nobody brings it up. Your way of making emotional eating “normal” and down to earth is so relieving to me – both on a personal but certainly also on a professional level! Thank you!” Noël Winkelmann, Denmark powerhousepilates.dk
