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.
I’ve never felt better while still losing weight. I feel like my issues with food are really being dealt with.
I love the holistic approach of the program. I am learning skills to deal with stress and not turning to food as much.
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.
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.
Dr. Ross brings out the big guns targeting emotional blind spots with laser like insights- if you are ready to dig in fast she’s who you want to work with. Dr. Ross has a gift for leading guided meditations & simple food guidelines that you just can’t poke a hole in (though you’ll likely try with all of your might!). Less than a year later I’ve never felt so confident that I’m finally onto the lifetime solution, a true end to dieting & the weight is starting to come off for the first time in my life without contrived alterations in my food choices.
The Anchor Program did for me, in ten weeks, what commercial and alternative diets haven’t been able to in the 30 years I have been trying to resolve my issues with binge eating, compulsive overeating, and body image.

Mine would be: The anchor program has changed my life in a huge way. I have had a mindset change when it comes to food, instead of having it on my mind all the time I am feeling more and more like I have control of my eating. I am feeling satisfied at meals and have had more energy to put into the more important things in life. I’d highly recommend it to anyone struggling with eating issues!
I have tried nearly every diet and spent thousands of dollars over more than 2 decades without any sustainable results, growing more and more discouraged at my inability to manage my weight. The Anchor Program includes a stellar team led by a medical doctor, Dr. Carolyn Coker Ross, in addition to registered dieticians and a licensed therapist. This team is phenomenal in their work, and Dr. Ross is truly gifted in her knowledge and expertise in treating food and body image issues. 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 e…
