About Dr. Melissa McCreery

Your life, your time, and your energy are too precious to spend struggling with overload, overwhelm, and overeating.

You’re a smart woman who’s succeeded in so many places in your life. Overeating, emotional eating and weight don’t have to feel like your last road block.

There’s a way off the hamster wheel – and when you find it, your whole life flows more easily.

Smart, high-performing women face specific challenges with food, overeating, and emotional eating.

There are factors triggering your overeating that the latest diet, weight loss advice, or healthy eating plan don’t even begin to address – and yet, they complicate everything:

  • Limited time and energy
  • Stress
  • Difficult emotions, situations, and relationships
  • Challenging demands and a complicated life
  • A schedule that makes it hard to fit yourself in or really take care of yourself

Complicated lives require customized solutions – NOT another diet or a serving of willpower.

You’ve likely collected enough information about what you think you “should” be doing to be successful. Odds are, knowing what to do doesn’t make it happen. Here’s what is helpful:

  • An approach that addresses the reasons that food has become powerful in your life
  • A plan that ends ongoing cycles with Overwhelm, Overload, and Overeating (that quickly make everything worse)
  • A strategic path forward that acknowledges the complexities of your life
  • A formula for success that creates more freedom and ease instead of complicating and bogging down your to-do list
  • A set of actionable steps that are do-able and that you’ll be motivated to continue taking (so that your success lasts)

In short – a smart approach that fits you, and that allows you to achieve your goals in the easiest, most natural way possible.
