The Non-Diet Method 

Break free from restrictive diets, regain your energy, reclaim your health and learn how to manage your weight with ease. With food and eating psychology coach, Josie Jones.

You don't need will power, you need nourishment. 

The Non-Diet Method combines evidence-based nutrition with coaching that recognises the complex connection between your emotions, thoughts, and experiences, and your behaviour around food. You'll learn to let go of the diet mentality and embrace a sustainable approach to eating and weight management. You'll rediscover the pleasure of eating without guilt and learn to nourish your body with wholesome, delicious food. And, you'll learn the mindset skills that will enable you to break free from your unwanted food habits so that you can achieve your health goals.

No more guilt, overwhelm or calorie counting just sound nutrition and mindful self-care backed by the power of an inspiring coach, community and programme of resources and events. Over six months, you will transform your entire relationship with wellness and create a solid foundation for a healthier, happier life.


Meet your coach

I'm Josie. I'm a 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 evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle principles that will enable you to achieve your health goals, whilst also enjoying life.

I know it can be nerve wracking embarking on another health programme when you've been failed by diets. You might be feeling like it's impossible to break patterns of dieting or unwanted food behaviours, or worried that if you develop a more relaxed relationship with food that you’ll gain weight rather than lose it. The truth is, taking restrictive measures to manage your weight messes with your hormone balance, it takes a toll on your emotional health and it causes weight fluctuations. This programme teaches you what you need to know about your metabolic health and nutrition so that you can manage your weight naturally, you'll learn the mindset and self-care skills that will help you overcome your self-sabotaging behaviors and you'll feel stronger and more energised as a result.

Seriously? You don’t know how good you can feel until you feel it.

I have a warm and non-judgmental approach to coaching and will be your ally on your journey to improving your relationship with food. If you’re fed up with feeling powerless and frustrated around food and you're ready to change things for the better, you’re in the right place! 





The Non Diet Method


A phased nutrition programme that will enable you to balance blood sugars, reduce inflammation in the body, promote healthy hormone function and maintain a healthy weight. Guides, training videos and over 200 delicious recipes, to tempt your taste-buds and nourish every cell in your body.


Unwanted food habits can hold you back from your wellness goals. This program provides you with the tools and strategies to identify and break these habits. Whether it's emotional eating, mindless snacking, or stress-induced bingeing, you'll gain insight into the underlying triggers and develop healthier ways to cope and respond. You'll also discover the all important connect between your nervous system and your metabolism.


A recommended programme of movement that works alongside your nutrition plan to help you to de-stress, build lean muscle, build your strength and support your emotional health. If you already have a movement practice in place, it's no problem, this is simply to inspire you to move in a way that promotes metabolic health.


 This programme is for you if....

  • You're a busy woman, fed up of 'quick fixes' that don't work and exhausted from trying to work out what to eat to manage your weight and feel better in yourself.
  • You're confused about food, often feel like you're failing and feel guilty and annoyed with yourself for your lack of discipline
  • You think about health and weight management in terms of restriction and a need for willpower, and are fed-up with thinking about it!

  • You're ready to embark on a transformative journey in your relationship with food and want the support of a coach and community to help you do that.
  • You're happy to educate yourself about your metabolic health, the impact that the modern food environment is having on your energy levels and how your mindset influences your food choices.
  • You might be a little sceptical about starting a new health programme, but you're ready to change the way you feel for the better.
  • You're committed to making changes to your diet and lifestyle practices - this is important, I only want to work with women who are ready to commit a little time to their well-being.

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".
