The Non-Diet Method 

6 Steps to metabolic health. Restore your energy, reset your relationship with food and manage your weight with ease.
 With food and eating psychology coach, Josie Jones.

Are you ready to make a breakthrough in your relationship with food? 

You're in the right place.

Your body thrives on stability, nourishment and a calm nervous system ‚Äď none of which are achieved by dieting. Your hormones control how your body burns and stores fat, not calories, so it makes sense that you should do what you can to work in harmony with your hormones, rather than working against them by restricting food.

No more guilt, overwhelm or calorie counting, this programme will show you how to use evidence-based nutrition and REAL self-care practices designed to support the health of your metabolism so that you feel more energised, less tired more able to manage your weight with ease.

Join The Non-Diet Method and you'll be coached on exactly how to put these practices to work in your life in a way that honours the complex connection between your nervous system, emotions and your relationship with food.. 


Meet your coach


Are you fed up with diets and calorie counting and not seeing the results you want? Do you want to feel better around food and enjoy the peace of mind you get from knowing that you are nourishing yourself for energy and health? Read on!

I'm Josie, Food and Eating Psychology Coach and founder of The Mindful Cook. I help savvy women, like you, to get off the diet treadmill once and for all and learn how to harness evidence-based practices that support you in feeling more energised, calmer and happier in your body.

I struggled with my relationship with food and my body for many years; diet culture passed down through generations; a stressful and busy career that left little time for nourishment; being led astray by weight loss diets thinking I was doing all the right things. Along my path to healing my own relationship with food I have learned valuable lessons that I'd be thrilled to share with you.

What if, instead of restriction and willpower, you could learn to nourish your body in a way that works in harmony with your hormones and metabolism and supports lasting health and weight management? That's exactly what you will learn inside The Non-Diet Method.

The Non-Diet Method recommends an approach to nutrition that is designed to help regulate your hormones for energy, reduced fatigue, and ease around food. You'll be coached to truly understand your body's needs and how to meet them without strict rules. No more feeling deprived, scared of certain foods, or obsessing over numbers! 

I know it can be nerve wracking embarking on another health programme if you've been failed by diets - I've been there too - but unlike many other programmes, The Non-Diet Method is designed to build you up: build trust in yourself to make nourishing food choices, build a stronger connection with your body and build your confidence so that you feel empowered to make lifestyle choices that honour your health well beyond the programme. You're in good hands.





Six clear and fully supported steps to transforming your relationship with food....

Step 1: Mindful awareness around food and your body 

Break free from patterns of behavior around food that are keeping you stuck. Learn how to tune in to your natural hunger and fullness cues and use a deeper level of connection to support you in eating more intuitively.

Step 2: Breaking your overnight fast to support metabolic health

Learn how to design your breakfast so that you feel more energised, less tired and fuller throughout the day.

Step 3: Regulating your nervous system

Understand how stress impacts your digestion, body composition and appetite and learn valuable techniques that will help you to improve your digestion and shift stubborn weight.

Step 4: Balance your blood sugars

Learn to design your meals in a way that helps you to naturally manage your cravings, experience better moods and less likely to experience slumps in your energy levels.

Step 5: The value of planning, preparation and your overnight fast.

Fed up of the stress of deciding what's for dinner? This will help you get it sorted - in many ways!

Step 6: Supporting the health of your cells for metabolic health.

Tricks and ideas to help you add to your energy levels, add to your body's natural ability to defend you against bugs and increase your metabolic health by adding to your diet - not taking away!

Unleash your potential with The Non-Diet Method ‚Äď where evidence-based nutrition and REAL self-care practices redefine your relationship with food.¬†

What women are saying about the programme...


Client Results




"I feel I’ve learned so much from meeting Josie at a retreat when I desperately needed nourishment, to joining the Non-Diet Method. I am now the queen of batch cooking; I’ve learned to eat when I need to and listen to my body, rather than the clock and I chuck extra veg, lentils and beans in just about everything. I’m even growing spinach! Importantly though I’m no longer pre-diabetic and keep my blood sugar well within the ‘normal’ range".



"I've slept really well, had less mood fluctuations and generally feel calmer than I ever have. I've felt positive and even lost some weight which has been a great start in my journey".


"Thank you so much for all your education, help and support. I feel like I’ve learned a lot from the programme abut food, nutrition, and myself! I’ve also lost 10kgs since starting the programme, and am more or less managing to maintain that, despite being tempted to eat a bit more comfort food over the colder months".
