Hello 🙂

My name is Linda and I’m a qualified life coach for professional women who want to break free from the yoyo dieting rollercoaster, claim their power and create a happy balanced life.

You will probably be surprised to discover that I’m large, very large; in fact, morbidly obese to use the medical term. Not what you expected on a “diet” site, right?

Well this is why my coaching is a little different. We get one chance at life. So why not make it your best life? I believe in dumping the diet, taking back control of your body and creating a lifestyle that suits you and makes you happy.

My weight has yoyoed all my life. I have had long periods of being effortlessly slim and other times when I have been out of control with my eating and my weight has gone higher and higher, with lots of smaller ups and downs along the way, so I totally understand what you are going through right now.

Like you, I’ve had many challenges and successes throughout my life. In my relationships and also in my career, with several changes in both! So I know what its like to be a woman with little time to look after number one.

About me - Linda Naylor

One day I realised I had got things the wrong way round.

I believed if I dieted and lost weight my life would get better in some way, but it didn’t, despite trying every diet under the sun.

However, when I changed the way I thought, my life got better and I started feeling better about myself which means it’s easier to lose weight.

And that’s why I began Dump the Diet.

Dump the Diet is a fresh approach to weight loss. It is about loving and accepting yourself as you are and creating a life you love. It’s about discovering your power and making choices which are right for you, whatever your current weight, size or lifestyle circumstances.

My weight is going down slowly, sometimes maintaining, while I am living a life I love. I am on a journey just like you.

I am so, so, so happy.

Now, rather than trying to stick to a diet and exercise programme someone else devised, and inevitably failing, feeling bad about myself, gaining weight and starting the process all over again. I do what works for me and I can help you discover and implement what works for you.

Once I let go of what I was supposed to do and embraced what I loved, my life changed so much. I love myself and I’m proud of what I am doing (something I thought I would never say!).

My life is fun and interesting, I wake up each day with energy and excitement for the day ahead and I want you to experience the same joy.

If I can love myself, have fun and create a life I love, I know you can too.

As a morbidly obese woman with a lifetime of yoyo dieting behind me I work with intelligent, caring, determined women who want to:

  • Stop binge eating, feel relaxed around food, and enjoy eating again.
  • Get over their excuses, let go of what they are supposed to do, and discover what works for them.
  • Love and accept themselves no matter what their current weight, size or lifestyle circumstances.
  • Be part of a positive, upbeat community of likeminded women who are working towards creating a happy and fulfilled life.
  • Wake up each day with enthusiasm, energy and excitement for the day ahead knowing no matter what life throws at them, they can handle it.


I believe everyone has the ability to stop self-sabotaging, lose weight and keep it off for good – the real challenge is discovering what works for you. So, if you’re ready to take control, get in touch or join our group of friendly, like minded women who are already on their way to being the best they can be.
