What people are saying about EA40:



This program was absolutely life-changing. There is so much to learn and so much to unpack in each chapter. There was stuff that I "knew" but hadn't incorporated into my life and there were quite a few "surprises" that are helping me rebuild my relationship with food and to eat healthily. If you want a quick fix this isn't it but I feel really confident that this is a long-term change program that will really work. It's a great blend of psychological and physiological approaches to eating over 40. Also, the Zoom portion was really important to clarify concepts and to learn from others' experiences.

Cleared the confusion about diets


The information as Abby has laid out in the course helped clear-up so much confusion I've had over differing diet advice. I gradually gained understanding and clarity about eating for MY health and MY life as I went through the course. This has made it quite seamless for me to incorporate the changes I want to make. Many thanks Abby!

The best community of people!


Abby's course provided me with a community of people with similar concerns and experiences to mine and a path to eating well in a satisfying and sustainable way.

Level of support was awesome


I have a better understanding of my eating patterns and how to feed myself healthy nutritious meals as well as a much clearer path to weight loss if that is my goal. The overall focus is on feeling good and making sustainable choices that support feeling healthy. The level of support was awesome.

Love Abby's gentle approach


Thank you Abby. I’ve been on the ‘break the diet mentality’ journey for about 5 yrs. I’ve read your book twice. This course revealed to me how far I’ve come. It also grew my personal awareness through the workbook activities and the teasing out more of the how-to minutiae. I feel very empowered and confident that I will never fall back to that start spot. In fact I believe I will never fall back to relying on a diet again. I may be temporarily enticed by a quick fix but once you know, you know and now I know!! Your course is priceless. And beyond the course material I loved the zoom calls. Abby has a very gentle and kind way of supporting each person on the journey from where we are at. It’s not a one size fits all and she makes it ok for us to have complicated personal ‘baggage’. She is astute at helping us to see where we can go. I loved how unrushed she was during the calls. Everyone had a chance to be heard if they desired. I’m sorry the course is coming to an end. I hope Abby will pop on our ongoing FB group to do a live with us once in a while. The FB group is wonderful and I know it will be an ongoing safe space for several of us. Thank you Abby!

Stop the diets!!


Abby’s book showed me that stopping dieting was possible. EA40 confirmed I don’t need to diet and it solidified tools to choose nutrition, body neutrality and to just have fun with food!

Finding my 'Why'


EA40 showed me that there no good or bad foods and that I didn't have to beat myself if I ate something "unhealthy" one day. It explained so much of the whys and how it effects you. She gave really good information in a good way.


  • Will you give meal plans and tell me what to eat?

    Nope. I've never done meal plans, and probably never will. While EA40 has some structure, it is not written in a way that maps out every bite of food for you. I don't believe that that's helpful, and it certainly doesn't teach anyone how to self-manage their eating. If you're looking for a very structured program with meal plans, 'eat this, not that' list, food rules, and a focus on weight loss, this is not the program for you.

  • Will I lose weight?

    EA40 focuses on healthy food and lifestyle habits, which can result in weight loss for some people. We focus on finding your comfortable weight, which is where your weight falls when you're moving and nourishing it properly (and able to live your best life!) Take this course not because your sole desire is to fit into your old jeans; take it because you want to walk up a hill without huffing and puffing; because you want to improve your overall health; because you want to set a good example for your kids; and because you want to do something good for yourself. My philosophy is that finding our comfortable weight is often the result when we stop obsessing about the number on the scale and focusing on the size we think we 'should' be. The positive behavioural changes you'll make with this course are designed to improve your health physically and emotionally.

  • What are your credentials/qualifications to teach this course?

    I have been an RD for 24 years. I'm passionate about women's health, and about debunking health and nutrition misinformation and scams. As a veteran nutrition professional who is in my 50s and in menopause, I am well-equipped to guide you through this process. I'm there with you!

  • Will I have a chance to ask questions?

    Yes! We have our weekly Zoom group coaching sessions for everyone enrolled. If you can't attend the live session, you can still ask questions and we will answer them in the Zoom. Every Zoom is recorded and posted in the group right after it happens! The EA40 private Facebook group is also a place to ask questions. Abby will be moderating the group, which is a safe place and supportive community to interact with those who are along for the ride.

  • How long do I have access to the course for?

    You have lifetime access to this version of Eating After 40, and the Facebook support group.
