Cognitive Eating Academy

Stop dieting, end food, weight and body image battles - reimagine your health and happiness through compassion and love

Let's be real. You're a smart lady - a really smart lady. You know how to lose weight, you've probably done it a dozen times already. And you don't need more food rules or people telling you what you're supposed to eat or when.

You've been on that ride a hundred times - you know it's not working. The weight never stays off & the "plans" never stick for very long.


The real problem is that you can't keep the weight off and you feel like you can't stop eating the "bad stuff". You think it's because you're "addicted" to food or sweets or because you have no willpower - but that's not true.

How do I know? Because I'm Roni and I spent over two decades feeling that way myself (and struggling with emotional eating, binge eating & bulimia for many years). I've also spent almost an entire decade working with other women in the exact same place.


After all that time, I've yet to meet a single woman willing to sell her body to Ben and Jerry for a pint of Chunky Monkey. But I have learned why we end up feeling so out of control with food, and struggling so hard to "stay on track" or find peace in our bodies.

More importantly, I learned the exact steps required to change it and I've bundled them up into a simple-to-follow system that I call Cognitive Eating.

In all my years of work I've heard the same reoccurring comments from clients every day:


  • "I've been dieting my whole life but I'm heavier than ever. I don't know what's wrong with me."

  • "Low-carb (or keto, paleo, weight watchers, or whatever) worked so great, I lost all this weight but I'm so stupid because I just put it all back on."

  • "I wish I was the size I used to be the first time I thought I was fat."

  • "I hate my body. I can't stand looking in the mirror or at pictures of myself."

  • "I do so great for a while but I'm such a screw-up, I always just end up falling off track."

  • "I'm so ashamed of the way I eat."

  • "I struggle with food the most."

It breaks my heart every single time because I remember what it was like to live that way - to be so beaten down by that constant war in my head that I was exhausted and often dreaded getting out of bed in the morning because I knew it was just going to start all over again. And it's all so simple to change!

I spent decades struggling with weight, body image, food, an eating disorder, depression, panic attacks, and an anxiety disorder.


I've also been an award-winning personal trainer and nutrition and wellness coach, and a nationally qualified champion figure athlete. I spent 8 years in that world and was successful in it - I've written for bodybuilding websites, was featured by Muscle Insider, and

But I was never really happy or at peace because, like many women, I desperately chased happiness and self-worth through my body and my weight. It never came and the harder I tried to control what was going in, the worse my food issues (and shame) got.  


And the more women I worked with, the more I realized it wasn't just me so I kept studying - psychology, neuroscience, habits and human behavior. I knew there had to be a magic secret formula out there somewhere that would help me (and my clients) actually be able to stick to something and be happy.  It was in those years of searching that I found the truth.

11/10 if I could give a proper rating! This wizard lady is MAGIC! I was so tired of trying and always failing, always! I remembered feeling so desperate and so lost with trying to get myself back. My relationship with food was a toxic one even as a child and Roni changed my life. I eat what I want, when I want, where I want. I’m finally for the first time at 34 years old, I’m in love with me! Much love Roni!"

1000000 freakin stars for this woman right here!  I've lost 80lbs and kept it off! She is amazing and I owe a lot to her for my daily life for the last 5 years. <3 "

When I came to Roni, I was so done with the years and years of food plans and rules. It was exhausting and disgusting. What I found with her was truth. It was real, it was doable and actually lasting because her process fills you with so much goodness and so much light, that for the first time, you don’t want to give up. Working with Roni has opened a whole new world to me. She created an atmosphere of honesty, and empathy - a safe place that empowers me to be open about my eating habits in ways that I’ve always been too ashamed to ever admit to anyone else. She helped me to look at things from a new perspective, and give myself permission to live in joy. I'm actually comfortable in my clothes now. I feel so much lighter. I wake up now with a smile on my face and a song in my heart, instead of the sense of dread that I used to. I have grown more in these 12 weeks with Roni than I ever have with any psychiatrist, or in any other program I've ever done in more than 30 years of therapy, counseling, or even overeaters anonymous. Before Roni, I had given up... on myself, and on life but she taught me hope and now I know that the best is yet to come. I can never go back to how I lived before - she has forever changed me and OMG, how it feels to finally be free…"

I've always felt like Roni was personally invested in my journey and my success. I started with her because I knew I couldn’t keep doing all those diets. I knew they weren’t working, I knew that somehow I needed to learn how to just to be able to eat and live. Roni’s process allowed me to peel away the layers to get to the root issues. Her approach taught me how to enjoy the foods I love in a way that makes weight loss achievable but more importantly I’m not angry anymore. I’m just a happier person in general, and now I know that has nothing to do with my size. And now, I finally live and eat what I want. I don’t even really think about food anymore. Guilt & shame are all gone. All that old negotiating in my head over what I should or shouldn’t eat...  I don’t do any of that anymore either. It’s really quite something. I went from feeling like I was a victim to my cravings and weaknesses to actually having the power to make choices. I’m not a helpless victim to those things anymore."

Why This Works


(when nothing else does)

Cognitive eating works to create lasting weight and food freedom because it addresses the issues at their source and teaches you how to actually change them by using a range of modalities that have been proven effective and used for decades for dealing with a wide variety of mental health issues, including eating disorders and disordered eating.

Learn to work with your mind & body with love & compassion rather than against them with rules, deprivation and, willpower (that we all know, never works).


What We'll Do


your relationship with food by removing guilt, fear and shame so eating becomes joyful and easy


your relationship with self by changing thoughts and beliefs that drive self-destructive choices


your triggers behind mindless, emotional, & binge eating and rewire the programming

that cause them

Through that three-step process, you'll get all the tools and support you need to learn why you keep self-sabotaging weight loss or healthy eating efforts, and how to change it.


  • Learn to enjoy food again, all foods, guilt and shame-free

  • Learn to finally stop dieting once and for all

  • Learn to stop mindless, auto-pilot, emotional, and even binge eating

  • Learn how my clients lose weight and keep it off effortlessly, without even trying

  • Learn how to trust yourself and your body to make your own (healthy) choices - never struggle to live by another food rule (and then hate yourself when you can't) ever again!

  • Learn to live (and eat) from acceptance, compassion and kindness, rather than judgment, blame and shame

  • Learn to love the skin you're in and break away from unhealthy thoughts and behavior patterns so you can build healthier habits, live more fully and at peace 

By targeting the issues at their source you're given the power to change it all, forever.

I never thought I would ever be this content and happy with myself, or with how clothes fit. I never thought I’d be able to let all the obsessing over food, the scale, and exercise. She helped me lose the weight (and actually keep it off) but she gave me so much more than that - so much more than I expected or even knew I needed. She taught me how to change my brain, to be okay with my self-image and my body no matter what the scale said, and to be comfortable in my own skin. I’m at peace now. I'm a happier, better, mother and person. Roni gave me actual tools to help learn how to make it lasting change - for life. My life and my mental and physical health have done a complete 180 for the better because of her and I can never thank her enough. "

It’s such a new way of thinking about weight and getting healthy when you start working with Roni, but yet it’s just so simple. If I want to eat, I eat but I’m learning to listen to my own body, and love myself so I actually want to make nurturing choices. I feel more self-control around food and have no more stress over the scale. My jeans are also looser and I’m not even trying to lose weight."
 - Kim D.


Working with her was unlike anything I’d ever done before and in talking to her and the other members in the group, I finally felt seen, and understood and it was so comforting.  After just a few weeks with Roni, she helped me end 13 years of bingeing and I’m no longer scared of “bad” foods."
