Jumpstart Anchor Program


4 Weeks to a Healthy Body Image and Nourishing Lifestyle


If you struggle with emotional eating, compulsive overeating, binge eating or food addiction, there’s something you need to know …

It’s not your fault.

This pattern was probably created during a time of immense stress or during a significant stressful life event. This may have been your way of coping with your feelings, and for a while, it probably helped you feel better.  But, over time, you also may have felt badly about your eating habits (maybe even guilty) and instead of forgiving yourself for “coping,” this turned into a vicious cycle of blame and shame and turning to food to make yourself feel better.

If you’ve been on the diet rollercoaster or have suffered from eating and body image issues, and you’ve tried other programs, you may be thinking…

I’m too overwhelmed to take time to do this program

I’m worried I won’t be able to deal with my feelings

I’ve given up trying to regain control because every time I try something new, it just doesn’t work for me

I’m tired of trying so hard and never really reaching my health goals

I understand how you feel because all of these are exactly what my clients said before they used the Anchor Program! This 4-week jumpstart program is NOT about dieting or deprivation. In fact, it’s about having more fulfillment, enjoyment, health and positive thoughts and feelings about your body.


What does it really take to…


Make peace with food and with your body?

Stop using food to deal with your feelings?

Overcome emotional eating and conquer cravings?


The Answer

The key to all of the above is finding your anchor. Being anchored is about being true to yourself and accessing your inner strength.  Your anchor is where you find stability in your lifestyle, your confidence in dealing with uncomfortable feelings like stress and anxiety, and where you put an end to body hatred.

The Jumpstart Anchor Program is a proven non-diet approach for treating emotional eating, binge eating disorder, compulsive overeating and food addiction.  You can access this program through online video conferencing from the comfort of your own home. As a Jumpstart Anchor Program client, you’ll work with professionals in the fields of nutrition, medicine, counseling and health coaching to set and achieve your goals and break the hold food has over you and your life.


The Jumpstart Anchor Program is for you if…

  • You struggle with emotional eating or binge eating, and you’ve tried other programs only to fall back into old eating habits. This is not a quick fix program, but a 4-week intensive reboot concerning how you use food, how you feel about your body and how you address your emotions. Think of the Anchor Program as your springboard for better health and a better relationship with food and your body.
  • You’ve made short term progress with other programs and methods but failed in achieving lasting change. Real change takes expert guidance and support from people who know what you are going through and what challenges you face.
  • You’ve addressed symptoms of your eating habits but have yet to discover the true ROOT of your suffering. Until you take the time to get to the root of your suffering, you will continue to repeat unwanted behaviors and patterns. The Anchor Program is designed to help you discover your root cause so you can acknowledge and accept what is really eating you. Once you know what your root cause is, our team of experts’ help you heal the emotions caused by the root issue so you can develop a healthy relationship with food.
  • You are overwhelmed by everyday stress, pressures, and demands which make it almost impossible to maintain healthy habits and enjoy your life. The best part of the Anchor Program is we make it simple to complete and apply to your life – even during times of stress – because we teach you how to deal with the uncomfortable emotions associated with emotional eating and binge eating. And…you’ll have a community of support to lean on when you are faced with your common triggers.


This 4-Week Program is NOT for you if…

  • You are not willing to be honest about how you feel.
  • You are not willing to lean on our team for support when you need it.
  • You are not willing to do the work we ask of you.


Overview of the 4-Week Jumpstart Anchor Program

Week 1: How to Embody Healing Habits and Thoughts

In Week 1, you’ll learn how to recognize when you are disconnected from your body and how to come back to yourself so you can gain awareness of your eating habits. This is how you break eating patterns that aren’t serving you physically, mentally or emotionally.  This is an important first step in finding your anchor because there’s no true healing unless you are in and accept your body.

Week 2: Changing Eating Patterns and Resolving Body Image Issues

When is enough, enough? What causes body and eating dissatisfaction and how can this be helped? In Week 2, you’ll learn how to gauge your hunger so that you can satisfy your body instead of numbing your emotions. You’ll also come to grips with how you really feel about your body and how you look, so that you can resolve these image issues and create a loving relationship to the greatest tool you’ll ever own – your body!

Week 3: Easy Ways to Nourish and Nurture Your Body

In Week 3, you’ll learn how simple it is to make small, meaningful choices with food that bring you increased energy, more vitality and offer small “wins” that encourage lasting change that builds on these choices. You’ll also find some simple ways to love yourself by using simple self-care techniques that foster a healthy relationship with how you feel about your body.

Week 4: Untethering Yourself from Your Past

In Week 4, you’ll discover how to completely let go of harmful attachments to the past, release addictions and heal traumas that have kept you stuck in unhealthy coping mechanisms. You’ll learn how to put together the puzzle pieces of who you are together in a way to see and accept yourself as you truly are.


In just 4-weeks and by following the tenets of the Jumpstart Anchor Program, you WILL:

  • Begin to shift your relationship with food and with your body
  • Incorporate healthy food choices in simple ways
  • Learn proactive and positive ways to cope with your feelings instead of using food
  • Get off the diet treadmill once and for all

What Anchor Program Clients Say


The Anchor program has changed my life. For once, there is a program that gets to the heart of helping you understand why you’re struggling and teaches you how to change your patterns you’ve spent a lifetime establishing. Previous diets feel superficial and I now see why they failed. The Anchor program helped me recognize my true self and for the first time in decades, I’m no longer ashamed of who I am.

– CS, Denver


I’ve never felt better while still losing weight. I feel like my issues with food are really being dealt with. – MR, Virginia


My struggle has always been to try to gain control of my eating without it relapsing into binge/purging habits.  Something about this feels both forgiving and empowering, and for the first time EVER, it feels like my body “gets it.  I owe you more gratitude than I express. – Denver participant


I love the holistic approach of the program. I am learning skills to deal with stress and not turning to food as much. – FC, Denver


Dr. Ross’s Program was so much more than I expected. It was gently revealing of the emotions behind the eating behaviors and gives tools to help overcome them. It is simple but not easy if you really commit to do the work. It can be scary at times to face long forgotten feelings. It is so worth it to become a whole person not controlled by weight and food.  – Denver participant



Dr. Ross is truly gifted in her knowledge and expertise in treating binge eating/compulsive overeating and the issues surrounding it. If you are looking for a quick fix (that will not last), this isn’t the program for you. However, if you are willing to dive deep and experience true freedom and healing, this program may be the answer to all you have been seeking. It absolutely has been for me – I wish I had found it sooner! I could have saved many, many years of suffering and wasted time, money, and energy on efforts that fought against my body’s wisdom, had I found The Anchor Program earlier!
