Do you spend much of your day obsessing about what you’re eating and how you’re eating it? Do you feel guilty about eating, hate yourself for eating what you enjoy, and cram down foods that are “good for you”? Or do you constantly criticize your physical appearance – either aloud or in your head whether it’s one particular body part or maybe even the whole damn thing?

Guess what? WE HAVE TOO!!

Having been where you are, we have put together a workshop to give you the tools you need to put you on a path to inner peace when it comes to food and body image. Using storytelling, sharing, meditation, journaling, brainstorming, deep listening, and self-reflection, we hope to help you stop suffering from these issues and end the obsession.

YCYC students enjoy a $25 discount when registering through our site - only $100 plus tax.

Lisa Lampanelli: With a career spanning more than 30 years, Lisa Lampanelli has, until recently, been a constant on the comedy scene. With numerous tours, Grammy nominations, and national TV guest appearances and specials under her belt, Lisa made national headlines in 2012 when she lost more than 100 pounds with the help of bariatric surgery. The comedian went on to speak with unflinching honesty about her lifelong food and body-image issues, and has since gone from insulter to inspirer.
Her play, “Stuffed,” enjoyed two off-Broadway runs and its success led Lisa to curate and perform her storytelling show, LISA LAMPANELLI’S LOSIN’ IT, a humorous and heartfelt show featuring herself and a group of storytellers, actors, and special guests coming clean about their food and body-image struggles. Having recently announced her retirement from stand-up comedy, Lisa is working on her life coaching certification, is leading workshops, and enjoying her transition from the Queen of Mean to the Queen of Meaning.
