How To Achieve Lasting Weight Loss In 3 Steps – The Simple Way - And Even If You Tried “Everything” Before... 

Let me tell you about Ava.  

Ava lived in a bustling metropolis filled with the hum of ambition 

Ava was a seasoned professional, admired by her peers for her sharp intellect and vast knowledge of her field.  

As she journeyed into her forties, Ava found herself at a crossroads concerning her health and well-being. Her weight kept creeping up, and she felt tired and worn-down a lot. 

Her life was busy, stressful and complicated, and Ava often felt overwhelmed and thought of just leaving and moving to an island in the south sea.  

One evening, after a particularly long day, Ava sat down at her favorite park bench, overlooking a sparkling pond.  

The sun was setting, casting a warm glow over the water, and for a moment, Ava allowed herself to just be.  

It was in this moment of soulful stillness that an epiphany struck her: maybe simplicity was the key?

Ava decided to make small, yet profound changes. She decluttered her home, opting for a minimalist approach that brought a sense of calm. Then she did the same to her diet and her exercise routine...  

As weeks turned into months, Ava noticed a transformation 

Not only was she losing weight, but she also felt more energetic, more focused, and more present in every aspect of her life. By simplifying her approach to living, she had created space for her well-being to flourish. 

Here is our soulful method on how to achieve lasting weight loss in 3 steps: 


The first step to lasting weight loss is to set the right goals for you. This means starting with DUMB goals before getting into specific SMART goals. 

Start with DUMB, Then do SMART...


What are DUMB goals? 

DUMB is an acronym. It stands for 

Goalsetting smart goals dumb goals goal achievement purpose passion

D =  Dream-Based 

U = Uplifting 

M = Method-Based 

B = Behavior-Driven 

Only AFTER you get very clear about why you want to lose weight - on a deep level - will you have the lasting motivation that is needed to really shift your eating and movement habits. 

After this is achieved, we can proceed to set SMART goals.

What are SMART Goals?

SMART also is an acronym. Here is what this stands for:

Goalsetting smart goals dumb goals goal achievement purpose passion

S = Specific 

M = Measurable 

A = Achievable 

R = Relevant 

T = Time-Bound 


The second step to lasting weight loss is making healthier food choices. 

This means increasing your intake of good quality natural foods, like organic or biodynamic fruits and vegetables, proteins, and brain-healthy fats and wholesome carbs. 

Limiting your intake of processed foods, added sugars, and seed oils can help you reach your weight loss goals more quickly and sustainably. 

I will share some surprising facts about nutrition, gut health, brain and mental health and how it all helps or hinders weight loss in the next weeks.  


The third and final step to lasting weight loss is staying active and getting moving. This means incorporating regular physical activity into your daily routine, whether it's going for a walk, working out at the gym, or joining a TaiChi, Yoga or dance class or moving more intentionally during the day. 

Exercise is not only great for burning calories, but it also helps improve your mood, boost your energy levels, increases muscle mass and reduces the risk of various health issues. 

By following these 3 simple steps, you'll be well on your way to a healthier, happier you. 

  1. Set good Goals
  2. Eat healthier foods
  3. Move more

About the Author Dr. Christine Sauer

Dr. Christine is a German-trained physician and naturopath, living in Canada since 1996.
She has struggled with her own weight all her life and gained and lost weight, until in 2005 she ended up at 325 lbs,
Unhappy, unfit and prediabetic, she decided to change. With surgery as her tool, she lost 150 lbs in 2006/7, only to discover that to keep her weight off and become truly confident and happy, she had to change her whole lifestyle.
Applying all she know and learned to herself, she did so.
She has kept most of her weight off since then.
After adding the right supplements, she developed, practiced and used her own brand of meditative movement (IIM-Intentional, Intuitive Movement), a combination of functional fitness, Body-awareness and Tai Chi.
She did intensive work on her own mindset and negative thoughts and became a Licensed Neuroencoding Specialist with Dr. Joseph McClendon PhD, a certified TEAM therapy therapist with Dr. David Burns MD as as well as a Certified Brain Health Professional with Dr. Daniel Amen MD and a Certified Havening Practitioner® (Drs Ronald and Steven Ruden) (Havening is a psychosensory method developed from EFT and EMDR after neuroscience research showed that including Havening Touch made these processes even more effective).
She curated the support she needed, did research on nutrition and nutritional supplements and started to use the right nutritional supplements.
She developed her mindful way of eating "foods you love that love you back" - what she now calls IIE (Intuitive, Intentional Eating) and became an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and a Life Coach.
This "Body, Mind and Spirit Transformation" also healed her severe chronic mental illness and depression, allowed her to slowly and deliberately withdraw from all pharmaceutical drugs and medications, and the IIM movement art, Tai Chi practice, Chiropractic care and doing the Foundation exercises healed her chronic back pain.
Eventually, she experienced the healing and reconnection of her Body, Mind and Soul that she - like so many of us - desire.
After regaining her own health and rehabilitating her brain health, she now is dedicated to sharing her knowledge and experience with others.
She is a #1 bestselling author, TEDx speaker and loving human being.
In her private life, she experienced the suicide of her first husband, 2 own suicide attempts, and many hospital stays and contacts with our medical system. She is married to her Canadian Husband Mike for over 25 years, and lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, enjoying the East Coast music and the ocean.
