Winning at Slimming

Winning at Slimming is completely different to any other weight loss program anywhere in the world. It provides the missing piece in the weight loss puzzle by addressing the key factor that has been ignored by the entire weight loss industry: the role of the brain.

Winning at Slimming is founded on the principles of neuro-plasticity: the science of changing the brain to change the body. It is not about diets, exercise, motivation, mindset, willpower or positive psychology. It goes much deeper into the very essence of how our brain cells communicate with each other and with the rest of the body to influence our appetite, assimilation of food, metabolism, weight set-point and weight distribution.

This ground-breaking, research-based approach is known as neuro-slimming and was developed by Dr Helena Popovic MBBS, leading authority on brain function and how our lifestyles impact our health and performance.

The brain is our control centre. Every other part of our body follows the instructions, directions and signals sent out by the brain. It doesn’t matter if you have a slow metabolism, a genetic predisposition to putting on weight or a frenetic lifestyle that lends itself to weight gain. It doesn’t matter if you have no idea why you haven’t achieved your desired body weight becauseWinning at Slimming addresses the underlying source of the issue and provides you with a mind plan not a meal plan.

  • Would you like to have a body that you’re totally happy and comfortable with?
  • At the same time, would you like to enjoy eating – more than you’ve ever enjoyed eating before?
  • Have you tried numerous different slimming programs and found that none of them worked for you? Or you lost weight and then put it back on?
  • Are you frustrated with all the contradictory slimming advice everyone seems to be bombarding you with?
  • Are you wondering whether it’s even possible for you to achieve your desired body weight?

Winning at Slimming is about living not dieting and fun not force. It’s about feeding your spirit, not starving your body. If you would like to lose weight and keep it off for the rest of your life without rigid, restrictive, gruelling regimes, we invite you to join us for this extraordinary weekend.
