Growing up in an Italian family from New Jersey, food was always at the forefront of our social gatherings, filling our hearts and bellies with love, warmth and weight. Our Sunday dinners were like Christmas dinner every week! There was always a first course, second course and dessert. Food was the underpinning of everything we did on Sundays, holidays and family get togethers.

Almost everyone in my family was always on a diet, trying to lose weight from all the pasta, cannoli’s, tiramisu and other Italian delicacies we ate regularly.

But Here’s The Thing, Diets Don’t Work.

I saw the suffering this inflicted upon family members and others trying to lose weight and keep it off. Many of them had high blood pressure, diabetes and depression from being overweight, and the worst part was I lost 3 of my closest family members to complications from these diseases. I made it my mission to help my family and others lose weight and keep it off but not by dieting.

Your Body, Your Health…

During my many years of experience in psychotherapy and personal coaching, I’ve helped empower countless men and women to transform their lives for the better. But I also noticed a trend where food was involved, with many of my client’s being overweight and unhappy. They would emotionally eat to self-soothe when they were sad, anxious, lonely or to relieve stress.

I knew there had to be a better way, and that’s why I’ve developed a simple, yet comprehensive program called

Ditch The Diet For Life

Ditch The Diet (DTD) Is About Obtaining Your Optimum Body Weight Without Dieting

It’s a simple program that will help you to nourish your body and release your struggle around food. You’ll become aware of your thoughts, feelings and beliefs so you can change your relationship with food. We also will look at the self-talk that accompanies eating and dieting and the food choices that are made. One of the goals is to become acquainted again with the natural physiological responses of the body that govern eating regulation.

Willpower Is Not Necessary

Ditch the Diet is not about a quick fix, pills or powders. It is grounded in cutting edge psychology and is different from anything you may have tried before. There is nothing to purchase, and you will be eating whole normal foods. The program has 5 core components based on Lokahi, an ancient Hawaiian word that translates to balance and harmony.

I didn’t realize how much I was mindlessly eating until Joanne opened my eyes.The past eight weeks have been life-changing! I lost 10 pounds easily because, unlike before, I am mindful about almost every bite I take, and I have stopped feeling guilty about the food I eat. I now not only savor my food but I’m more aware of how I live my life in general. I would definitely recommend this course for others.

Thank you, Joanne!


The Ditch the Diet program has completely shifted my view of food. I was not eating mindfully and gave in to all my food cravings. I can now say that I eat with intention, and if I do have a craving, I can move past it when I think about why I want the food and the long-term effects on my health and wellness. Joanne is very approachable and supportive and goes above and beyond to help you figure out how food should be integrated into Megan J. ur life.

Ditch the Diet is a life-changing practice in mindfulness, self-care, and self-love! It is such a comprehensive program; delving into nutrition, mindfulness, and world-view with Joanne is the ultimate lifestyle overhaul. I came into this program with an emotional reliance on food and a lot beliefs that were not serving me, and through the 8-course sessions I broke down those mental barriers and built up a much healthier lifestyle for myself. Not only that, but it woke me up to beautiful new experiences with food and mindful movement that I wouldn’t have appreciated nearly as much otherwise. The program has changed the way I think about the food I eat, and the impact that sustenance has on my body, my mind, and the world around me. I could not have come to these realizations without Joanne. She is such a shining ray of light, and I always feel refreshed and empowered after our discussions. She is a joy to work with; inspiring, uplifting, knowledgeable, and so much fun. I cannot say enough good things about Joanne and her program – spend eight weeks working with her and she will help you change your life. I am so excited to continue this journey long after the program has ended.
