Let’s Build an Empowered Community!
YOUR BEST WEIGHT JOURNEY
Course 1: Setting the Stage
Your Best Weight Journey
Dr. Michael Mindrum will take you on an online educational experience learning about obesity, weight bias, how the brain regulates weight, why weight loss is difficult to maintain, and an evidence informed approach to weight management. At this time there is no cost to join this course. Upon graduation you will get an “Empored Certicate of Achievement”. Help us create an inspiring empowered community!
Course 2: Getting to Business
The Art and Science of Behaviour Change
Powered by the MACKLIN METHOD, this course serves as a compass and guide through the terrain of behaviour change. Habits are hard to change, barriers are expected, and progress is not linear. We recommend completing the “YOUR BEST WEIGHT JOURNEY” course first. This online course is free of cost.

OBESITY is NOT a BEHAVIOUR~ Dr. Michael Vallis, Ph.D.
Diet culture is based on false idea that our behaviour controls our body weight and that obesity is a choice. The truth is that weight is regulated by an unconscious part of the brain. Moving towards healthy habits can have a positive impact on weight but we don’t have conscious control of how much. Positive changes in lifestyle can have a dramatic impact though on our overall health and sense well being. With this in mind, we can move forward with a sense of accountability and dignity rather than blame and shame.
