NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Beacon Program, a program that addresses individual weight issues and food addiction, invites you to find your beacon to end your personal battle with dieting. With various programs designed with each individual's needs in mind, The Beacon's unique expertise in behavioral therapy will help you not only master your weight, but also the behaviors necessary for long term weight control.
"For nearly two decades, I struggled with obesity and tried every diet imaginable," said Molly Carmel, LSCW, founder and director of The Beacon. "It dawned on me that although the diet programs were teaching me what and how to eat, none were addressing the behaviors and thinking patterns necessary to end my diet wars and end my food addiction for good. Through my personal struggles and now my personal and professional success, I created The Beacon to help others who are struggling the way I did. I want people to know that there is an answer. Help does exist."
The Beacon has an in-depth and unique focus on behavioral therapy, nutritional therapy and food addiction education to help clients end their individual battles and achieve their goals. Carmel and her team of Behavioral Coaches and Addiction Specialists help clients find the best custom program that combines both nutritional and behavioral therapy to help lead them towards personal success.
The company shares its successful programs beyond its clientele and has launched monthly seminars and support groups that are open and free to the public. The seminars, led by Carmel, will help attendees learn how to achieve their goals in a new way and stay on track with their health goals throughout the year. The series, "Food Freedom: Surviving the Holidays," features tips for navigating the holiday season.
"Every individual we work with at The Beacon has a different story and a different goal for ending their personal diet war, whether its weight loss or curbing food addiction," said Carmel. "We are honored and excited to help even more people through our free educational seminars as an introduction to a program that works so they, too, can see the possibilities of living a life of food freedom."
The Beacon will be hosting the following upcoming free events in December:
- Sun., Dec. 14, 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
