EFT otherwise known as the Tapping Technique; is a simple step-by-step formula that you can apply yourself, anytime, anywhere you are having a craving or an emotional urge.It works by literally rewiring your brain’s connection to food and emotions. In childhood, you formed an association between food and emotions. Later in life, that neuro-association often leads to uncontrolled cravings and an unhealthy relationship with food.
For instance, you may remember coming home to a freshly baked plate of chocolate chip cookies, a reward from your mother for a good report card. Your brain hardwired the association of cookies to good feelings … love and affirmation. Now, any time you experience a feeling that is unpleasant ie, kids having a meltdown, boss breathing down your neck, feeling bored or lonely at night … you subconsciously seek the comfort of cookies because of that hardwired association you learned as a child.
EFT, is often referred to as “Psychological Acupressure” is a self-applied technique blends evidence-based acupressure points and psychology. When used properly, it works by sending a flood of serotonin to the brain to calm your anxiety and disengage the emotional urge for food. It literally changes your brain chemistry, disrupting that neurochemical association that creates the cravings, enabling you to make conscious eating choices.
Within minutes, you can look at food and take it or leave it … you are suddenly in control! And the process takes about 3-5 minutes.
EFT and the Skinny Genes Program will work for you if:
- You want a simple solution to handle cravings…. that actually works
- You want to be able to look at a food (like chocolate) and take it, or leave it.
- You know that losing weight is a matter of changing your mind
- You want to learn how to eat whatever you want and still lose weight
- Most importantly, you want to feel in control of your life and around food!
The Skinny Genes Program was developed through Brittany’s personal struggle with weight and her in-depth work with a behavioral scientist. The methods she found to be most effective for permanent weight loss were Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), and Neurolinguistic Reprogramming (NLP). She uses these methods to specifically address the challenge of food cravings and emotional eating. The Skinny Genes Program is essentially a blend of best practices from these techniques … plus a little secret sauce!

As someone who has long struggled with weight issues, I was frustrated with the mountains of books, videos and programs that made bold claims to change my relationship to food but simply didn’t work.
Easy for them to say but I couldn’t put down the chocolate and call a friend when I was having a craving … I couldn’t go for a walk instead of tearing into a bag of potato chips!
I realized most of these techniques were trying to put a Band-aid on the wound as opposed to digging into the real source of the problem. Intuitively I knew that the source was deep-rooted and emotionally-based. Luckily, I found a behavioral scientist who introduced me to techniques that proved effective for me and which inspired me to create The Skinny Genes Program.
Now, when I eat chocolate or potato chips, it’s a conscious choice … and I stop after I feel satisfied. And when I have the occasional craving, I recognize it and can immediately neutralize it!
Now, food doesn’t own me. And once you understand EFT and The Skinny Genes Program, you’ll quickly realize it’s not just about controlling food cravings … it’s about empowering your life, putting you in the driver seat. It’s about enabling you to become the master of your universe!!!
