I was stuck. I knew from painful years of experience that diets didn’t work. And every alternative weight loss approach I tried left me feeling angry, deprived and frustrated. I thought the problem was me: I had a bad attitude; I needed to try harder.
Then I came upon Happy Calories Don’t Count, and I had the revelation that the problem wasn’t my failure, it was the failure of the diet and exercise model.
Carmela’s approach is truly revolutionary. She puts forth a new paradigm that not only makes sense, it works. Following her five steps, I appreciate my body, enjoy my food, and made it through the holiday season having lost weight. No need for a New Year resolution this time!!!

I used to think that the biggest challenge keeping me from my weight-loss goals was simply my lifestyle. I’m an empty nester and I work from home as a Virtual Business Manager and Life Strategist and Coach, so it’s easy to fall out of a scheduled meal and workout routine.
But my big “ah-ha” from working with Carmela’s New Body Mind Makeover – and it’s a doozy!! – is that once I stopped JUDGING my body and myself (yup, even a Life Coach goes there…) the weight just fell off – and continues to fall off!!
I am so aware of how much I love myself, my body and my life (and all its ups and downs).
I have no cravings and when I do eat something that I used to think is “bad,” I just enjoy it and am good to go!
Lots clicked after I went through your course! It’s a great way to have huge mind-shifts!
Thank you Carmela for sharing your story and your breakthrough – you are a “Star” in my life!

I had been thin all my life, always enjoying my food and never giving my weight much thought. In my late forties, I was diagnosed with three life-threatening illnesses all in the same year. I had surgery and was put on all sorts of medications, including Prednisone… and my weight skyrocketed.
I tried for years to shed the excess weight, but nothing worked. In one afternoon, Carmela helped me see how my relationship to my body and my thoughts about food and exercise had changed when I suddenly had weight to lose.
With that revelation, I gave up the idea of calories and started living and being the me I was before I got sick. The weight started falling off and I’m now wearing clothes I haven’t worn in over six years!
When I think about all the time, money and energy I’ve spent on Weight-Watchers, Jenny Craig, and other diet programs, the gym memberships, personal trainers and home equipment, the supplements and “magic” pills, the therapists, nutritionists and healers, and the wardrobe of clothes in 5 different sizes, what comes to mind is that MasterCard commercial. New Body Mind Makeover 30 Day Quick Jump Start Combo, $2,997. Getting my life back - Priceless! Thank you, Carmela, for everything!

I hated diets but then I was so scared not to be on a program when nothing external is telling you what to do. I was reading about a diet and it made me so angry. I thought, “I hate this – I don’t want to do this!”
My biggest ah-ha moment from working with Carmela was realizing that my body is my partner in relationship – and I’m really good at relationships! Now I don’t have to be on a diet – I can listen to myself and my body.
