“It is health that is real wealth, and not pieces of gold and silver.”—Ghandi

Growing up in a large Italian family in New Jersey, I understood the language of food from an early age. Feasting was at the centerpiece of my family’s gatherings, filling everyone’s bellies with nourishment, warmth, love—and weight.

As such, nearly everyone in my family was always looking for a way to shed pounds from all the cannolis, tiramisu, and pasta they regularly ate. Time and again, I watched my family members grapple with the frustration that often arrives with dieting, while many also endured diabetes, depression, poor self-esteem, and high blood pressure. After losing three of my family members to complications from these issues, I made it my mission to help my family members lose weight and keep it off.

And along the way I was reminded of what you may already know: Diets don’t work.

What does? Eating with intention.

Ditch the Diet for Life was born from this notion. The simple but effective program draws on my experience as a counselor, yoga instructor, and Mindfulness teacher to help you control emotional eating, nourish your body, and achieve your optimal weight. Based on the Hawaiian term “Lokahi”—which translates to balance and harmony—the 5-part program assists with the following:


Reacquaints you with your body’s natural hunger cues


Reduces the negative self-talk that tends to accompany eating and dieting


Helps release struggles around food


Fosters mindfulness around eating and physical health


Promotes self-care and self-love

Transformation can be yours—schedule a consultation today.

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.

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.

I thought I’d be learning all about nutrition and how to lose weight. I quickly realized that it encompasses much more than just food; it’s about your life and your whole being; it’s about self-care and loving yourself.

Joanne’s passion and belief in what she does, helped me look at not only food but my life more mindfully. She is passionate about what she does because she has walked through it in her own life. You will feel right at home with Joanne, she radiates love and cares about you and your success in the program. 

I now look at my food before I eat it and think about what it’s going to do for me nutritionally. I have been eating whole and organic for years, but I was just eating and not thinking about it, and pretty soon, I was overeating and stuffing my feelings. 

In today’s world, we’re told so many different things about diet, don’t eat fruit, don’t eat carbs, eat more protein or less and on and on.   

Joanne teaches you to be mindful of what you are eating and not to feel guilty if you eat something that is not healthy, to always think about what you are putting in your body, and to look at your food and be thankful for it. Before you know it, you are eating whole, healthy foods in a whole new way, and the best part is that you start to lose weight.  

I encourage everyone to do this program; it has changed my life. I would tell you more, but there is just so much more, and you need to take the class to understand what I’m talking about.
