Discover where your brain’s ideas and habits around food may be holding you back from achieving your goals!

There are 10 dimensions of behavior that affect your ability to lose weight, and our assessment helps you explore and learn whether you are low, medium or high risk in each of them. The WALT Assessment was developed by psychologists and has been used extensively in weight loss groups, bariatric evaluations, and in private clinical practice. This is your opportunity to receive a report that will help you learn more about yourself and break through to lose weight. 

Once you sign up, you will be taken to the WALT Assessment. Once you’re finished answering the questions, you will immediately receive your report. Keep your log-in handy to review your report, or to register later for the WALT Course.

“My WALT Assessment showed me that I use food too often just as a habit when I’m bored or tired. I took the report to my weight loss counselor and we made some great changes that really helped me.”

“I learned so much about myself and how I use food. This is a great place to start in building new ways of thinking so I can finally lose weight.”

“Wow – I didn’t know some of my behaviors were the reason I wasn’t reaching my target weight. I just didn’t know how they affected my eating.”

“I didn’t realize that perfectionism was getting in the way of my weight loss. When I saw I was High Risk in that category, it really changed my mind about how to approach losing weight for good.”

The WALT Assessment (sample page shown) gives you the information across ten critical dimensions (like motivation, perfectionism, eating over emotions, etc.) that you need to effectively chart your weight loss journey. When you know where your brain needs to level up its skills to support you in weight loss, it becomes so much easier to stay on track. Use it yourself, share it with your weight loss coach, or make it available to your doctor or mental health therapist.

“The WALT Assessment ensures that I understand the psychological factors that my clients may be dealing with, as I support them in their weight loss journey. It’s a fantastic tool for any practice to use with any client who wants to lose weight. – Dr. Stewart Zelman
