When you complete this certification, you'll be uniquely trained in the


to help clients overcome food addiction and lose weight more effortlessly.

We developed this advanced certification because of questions we get all the time at The Health Sciences Academy:


Why doesn't portion control work with my clients?

Can I help clients lose weight without feeling hungry?

Is there a cure for food addicts?

Can a client eat all they want and still lose weight?

How often should my client eat?

Could this client have a food intolerance?

How can I help speed up my client's fat loss?


(Yes, we get questions like these even from medical doctors and university-trained dietitians and nutritionists).

Questions like that inspired us to bring practical science closer to those who want to help others lose weight, in the right way.

This course is our combined know-how in appetite neurochemistry, hunger hormones, nutrition science, food addiction, eating psychology, and food allergies and intolerances.

If you want to help your clients successfully lose weight, and keep it off effortlessly, we believe that you need to understand the science of nutrition and appetite psychology.

So, how do you do it?

Fortunately, that's exactly what you're about to learn...

FACT: Clients Need Practitioners Who Have a Profound, Science-based Insight on Clinical Weight Loss

(...Who Actually Know What They're Saying)

Data: World Health Organisation, Obesity and Overweight Fact Sheet, retrieved 2017

Since you're here, you probably already know that obesity rates are on the rise...

According to the World Health Organisation:

40% of the global adult population is overweight.

The worldwide prevalence of obesity more than doubled since 1980.

Overweight and obesity are linked to more deaths worldwide than underweight.

These rates are too high and need to be lowered.

Practitioners today must gain a profound, science-based insight that they can use to help clients PROFICIENTLY, particularly if they want to stand out and be leaders in this field.

This scientific insight includes being able to assess someone's unique biochemical and nutritional needs.

That's where YOU can make a difference.

When you become a certified Advanced Clinical Weight Loss Practitioner, you'll learn to custom-build a weight loss program based on proven scientific methods...

...and you'll be able to confidently address issues such as:

  • The brain on food
  • New science of food addiction
  • Hunger hormones
  • Why portion control doesn’t work
  • How not to feel hungry during weight loss
  • What biggest losers do, that others don’t
  • When fast weight loss may be better
  • When fat is not fat: Water retention and food intolerances
  • Comfort food as self-medication
  • The fix for lack of willpower
  • Psychology behind successful weight loss

I enjoyed everything, one of the benefits is you work from home in your own time so it's very flexible. The downloadable print outs were very helpful as well.5stars

There is so much information available nowadays, and it is difficult to decide which one to follow without thorough understanding of the subject. I wanted to be able to make wise decisions. This was great.4stars
