Podcast Show NotesSeries 7 Episode 4In this episode I talk to the incredible Dr Valerie Evans.

Dr Evans has aspired to feel better about her body since becoming a teen and has experience with just about every diet program. Two years ago, Valerie turned to diet apps to feel like herself again following surgery.

Dr Evans responded by creating her own app, a diet program alternative called No Weigh. No Weigh shows users how to leverage behaviour analysis devices to make simple adjustments to the contexts of their daily lives to maintain motivation and lose weight mindfully and naturally.We cover: -The role of behaviour analysis for understating ourselves and our habits/behaviours-Motivation and barriers to creating change-What makes us get ’stuck” at times-What we do to begin our change journey-Using behaviour change for weight loss. Find Dr Valerie:Website: https://noweigh.com/App: https://noweigh.com/appTwitter https://x.com/noweigh_app?s=11&t=J4e2KMXiTfe8MPmyb9mzVQInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/noweighapp/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/noweighappLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/valerie-evans-a77990b/Support LinksThe Adversity Psychologist Podcast sessions do not constitute any kind of formal clinical support.
