About Lianda

Best Selling Author and Speaker, Lianda Ludwig, M.Sc. describes her work as a “Coach-sultant”.  She specializes in working with frustrated, disappointed women (and men, as well) who have been on diet after diet, and still have a weight problem!

Lianda says “Don’t even bother to diet unless you learn the hidden reason why 95% of dieters fail”.  Why? Because if you continue to do the same thing time and time again, and expect different results, that’s the definition of INSANITY! The Diet Industry is making over $60 BILLION on fooling you with NEW diet plans, weight loss promises, and miracle cures and even surgery that are supposed to make you lose. The only thing YOU will lose is your money.

That’s because the “diets” don’t address the root cause of WHY you are overweight. It’s not so MMIP-DrKeithLeemuch what you’re eating, but what’s eating you! You’re not eating because you’re hungry, and you’re not stopping filling your stomach with food even after you’re full! It’s probably the why you are overweight. 

  • If you’ve been on lots of diets and lost weight, only to gain it back
  • If you CAN’T lose weight on a diet despite doing everything your doctor tells you to do.. (I show you a self-test to find out why) 
  • If you are feeling unhappy and deprived, craving for food you know you “SHOULD NOT” eat.
  • If you’re eating comfort foods, but still not comforted!
  • If you are obsessed with thinking about what and when you are going to eat next, and your weight.

DIETS are the reason you gain back the weight you lose- IF you even lose it in the first place!

OVERwhelm, OVERwork and OVER-achieving can cause OVERweight. Lianda Ludwig, M.S. shows you how to eliminate stress so that you transform your life, lose that weight and start living like a thin person – not focusing your life on food, food, food!

Personal Statement:

After receiving my Masters Degree, I had what some would think of as an unfortunate task to commute 3.5 hours a day to my job as a counselor in NYC.  But I discovered the greatest use of my time and used the opportunity to read hundreds of books a year in the area of psychology, self-help, nutrition, energy medicine, spirituality and other related areas. That reading time was a gift that allowed me to learn the most cutting edge and amazing research to see the viewpoint of some of the greatest writers and thinkers, and how they view and solve human dilemmas. From this diverse BIG picture, I’ve found the most meaningful and effective methods to empower you to feel heartfelt relief by bringing integrity and meaning and rediscovered happiness into your life.


Lianda gives me hope and a sense of calm. I immediately felt more relaxed. In fact, this technique helped me speak with the executive director in a calm manner while discussing strong content. I feel uplifted and ready for the next challenge. Roseann L. Alaska

I am amazed at how Lianda’s coaching gets right to the core of my issue and calms me. When I’m stressed, I need help seeing what’s really bothering me, and Lianda’s insight makes things clearer. Now I feel more able to get to the “Heart of the matter” Karen S. Tucson, AZ
