Discover The Steps To a Value-Driven Life where you ENJOY Food And CARE for Your Changing Body… Without Fear or Shame.
Like so many women over 40, 50 and 60+, you are tired…
Tired of feeling out of control with food, your weight, and your body.
Tired of being on and off that roller coaster of diets for what seems like your entire life.
Tired of using emotional eating as a coping tool for all of life’s stressors.
Tired of not recognizing yourself when you look in the mirror.
… You’re tired of all this discomfort and confusion; you’re just trying to figure out the best path moving forward!
Even though you know deep down that bodies change -- that you'll never look the same as when you were 20, it feels impossible to imagine that YOU could be one of those confident women, aging gracefully and content in their own skin.
Here’s the thing, this CAN be you… when you learn that positive body image isn’t about thinking, or even believing your body looks good – it is KNOWING your body is good, regardless of how it looks!
You can learn to challenge diet culture, and build new self-care habits and strategies to feel more confident in your here-and- now body today, just as it is.
The ONLY Intuitive Eating Group for women over 40, 50 and 60+ that helps you create a positive relationship with food and learn to nurture and care for your changing body as you get older.
The support and training in the Eat.Live.Nourish.™ program are built on the concepts in the ground-breaking book, Intuitive Eating and the NEW Intuitive Eating Workbook, by Evelyn Tribole, MS, RDN and Elyse Resch, MS, RDN.
You learn practical steps, coping tools and develop the habits and skills needed to be a lifelong Intuitive Eater.
Eat.Live.Nourish.™ is led by Rebecca Rikon, a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor and Social Worker with the Erica Leon Nutrition team.
Rebecca guides participants on a proven path to incorporating the principles of Intuitive Eating into your life. As you work together through the workbook and learn the habits, you discover newfound confidence to live with more freedom and ease!
Your Path to Explore, Expand and Embrace a Peaceful Relationship with Food and Your Body.
You will discover and enjoy freedom, as you give yourself permission to make food and movement choices from a place of self-care, not self-control.
You will know how to live without depending on food to manage your emotions, knowing how to enjoy food and nurture yourself emotionally as part of eating (not instead of eating).
Participants in our groups say that Eat.Live.Nourish™ is the most supportive, motivating, and practical training to build their Intuitive Eating Skills and Habits.
Read what others have to say about this experience….
Erica Leon’s course changed my life. I learned about the amazing way my body adapts during midlife, and that these changes are normal.
I truly gave up the diet mentality. I threw away all of the diet foods and tools including FINALLY the scale. I’m feeling great and eating what I want in quantities my body needs. It’s been great.
I feel more confident in my body, and able to make choices (even around the holidays) that are right for me. Learning to trust myself around food, I discovered, affected other areas of my life as well.
Additional one-on-one nutrition counseling sessions can be arranged as needed as part of packages at a special student only rate.
Please note participants in this program must apply and be preapproved by Erica, please reach out to Erica and book a quick call to talk if you have not done so already.
Recognizing the many systemic factors that have led to wealth disparity in our society, we want to offer equity pricing for people from marginalized communities. Please contact Erica directly to discuss your individual situation: firstname.lastname@example.org.
But, this group is NOT for everyone…
Eat.Live.Nourish.™ is a fit for you if….
- You are a woman over 40, 50, or 60 + just starting to ditch diets; you’ve hit diet rock bottom and are ready to learn Intuitive Eating principles.
- You’ve heard about Intuitive eating and understand the ideas behind challenging diet and anti-aging culture but have not been able to make it second nature in your life.
- You can’t make this idea of mindful and intuitive eating a reality because life gets in the way and it’s so easy to fall back into old habits.
- You are challenged with how you can incorporate intuitive eating into your daily life.
- You are ready to say NO to diets, diet culture, restricting foods, and put in the time and practice to learn new behaviors that serve you well.
This group is not for you if…
- You are in current treatment for an eating disorder.
- You are not ready to unlearn what you’ve been taught about diet culture, challenging the thin ideal and unrealistic beauty standards.
- You are not ready to have frank and open discussions about systems of oppression, including the patriarchy, sexism, racism, ageism, sizeism, healthism and more…
- You are not willing to take the time to do the homework and activities each week that will help you develop new habits.
The group atmosphere is something that cannot be experienced in individual sessions. Knowing you’re not alone and are part of a community of women at midlife – just like you — will inspire and empower you!
The Eat.Live.Nourish.™ program offers you a safe, supportive space for women over 40, 50 and 60 to build your skills and habits that will stick with you for life!
Food. Family. Friends.
These three things can be some of the most trying roadblocks in your path to Intuitive Eating.

These holidays are some of the most challenging times for our clients and group members.
Navigating the times when others make you doubt yourself is so much easier with a pro and a cheering squad of peers in your corner are there … supporting you when diet culture rears its head more than ever.
We are there for you!
- We are there when “Aunt Sally” comments on your nutritional habits and makes you feel insecure about eating food!
- We are there to help you manage comments about your weight or your body at the dinner table.
- We are there to be ready for those times when well-meaning friends or family members share the “best way” for you to lose weight or look better.

STILL NOT SURE THIS IS THE PROGRAM FOR YOU?
Here are the most often-asked questions folks have about the program…
What if I cannot make the calls at that time?
The group calls with Rebecca and fellow members are the meat of this program and are what participants have always valued the most. If you cannot make the calls live, we suggest you consider taking our self-study Intuitive Eating Essentials course.
I've tried intuitive eating before but it's so hard to make it work.
Intuitive Eating can be hard to embrace when you are going at it alone. Therefore we have specific activities to do each week and why we mail you a copy of the Intuitive Eating Workbook… because we are going to work with you! To help you practice these skills and develop the habits that become second nature to you and turn into lifelong habits.
I've heard you gain weight with intuitive eating because you can eat everything. I'm scared of gaining more weight.
There is a misconception out there that Intuitive Eating means you eat everything and anything. This is not so. Intuitive Eating helps you to learn the difference between hunger, fullness and satisfaction and reintroduces pleasure and joy into your eating experiences. Intuitive eating can help you discover which foods are nourishing for your unique body.
Try and remember that your fear of weight gain has kept you stuck on the never-ending diet cycle of restricting, then overeating, and probably gaining more weight with each new dieting attempt!
I've tried groups before, but they were filled with people who were younger, thinner and had very different issues than I did.
This is a group for women over 40, 50 and 60, and the reason you need to book a call with Erica before joining the program. Erica makes every effort possible to bring together people with similar food and body image concerns. You are not alone, and there is power in coming together as a group of women who all face similar challenges.
What if I'm not over 40, can I join this group?
This group is for women over 40 so that members can have support from others at the same stage in life and experiencing similar body and nutrition challenges.
If you are looking for similar support, reach out to Erica and book a time to talk and find a solution that will best help you.
What if I've never been on a diet but struggle with emotional eating, will this group help me?
Yes! When you turn to food to manage your emotions and cope with stressful situations, Intuitive Eating is one of the best ways to manage your feelings directly and learn new coping tools other than food.
Should I join if I still want to lose weight?
The concept of letting go of diets and using a non-diet approach can be scary, especially for women who have only ever used diets for intentional weight loss. Know that we have tremendous empathy for how challenging it is to exist in in this weight-centric (and weight phobic) world, particularly for those in marginalized bodies. We help our clients reach for health-promoting behaviors rather than focusing on the scale as a measure of progress. If you are not ready to stop restricting your foods to promote weight loss, this program is not the right fit for you.
ARE YOU READY TO EMBRACE A NEW YOU??
If you are sick and tired of being unhappy with your body, find yourself stuck on that diet roller coaster, and want to find more ease and comfort in your own skin… Then now is the time!
Time to put YOU first and Find that Food Freedom and Body Peace you are seeking … Forever!
