Life Changing! If you have ever struggled with body image or weight loss/gain/loss you have to meet this woman!

~ Julie Anne Jones

Changed my life forever! For anyone who has ever struggled, truly and painfully struggled with their body and thought, “What’s wrong with me, why won’t it work for me?” The teachings of Carmela Ramaglia will set you free.

~ Ali, Amazon Reviewer

You made me look at something that haunted me for life in a way that heals my spirit and psyche. We’ve all been so conditioned to hate food and/or our bodies. You’re like a real-life superhero.

~ Mindy Lee Caron

    let me guess...

    You’ve done the diets - the high carb, low carb, high fat, low fat, fad diets, starvation diets, “healthy and sensible” diets - and realized that they don’t work long term.
    You’ve done the exercise programs - high impact, low impact, plyometric, high cardio, low burn, mind/body programs - and have achieved limited results.
    You’ve figured out that a “lifestyle change” is just a fancy way to say that a diet and exercise program is so inconvenient and convoluted that you need to rearrange your entire life to follow it.
    You’ve done your “personal work” - you’ve addressed your mommy issues and your daddy issues, your inner child and your inner critic, your self-esteem and self-sabotaging behaviors.
    You’ve done your spiritual work - you can quote the Buddha, the Dali Lama, the Bible, A Course in Miracles and cite the principles of the Law of Attraction.
    You’ve done ALL this WORK - you know ALL this STUFF - and you STILL can’t solve the problem. You can’t seem to get that monkey off your back and find some peace.

    It doesn't have to be this way...

    You can have freedom!

    Food and Exercise can be non-issues

    You can feel confident that you look your very best

    You can feel good in and about your body

    You can reclaim your life!


    I get it...

    This stuff literally drove me to the edge of suicide. When I was seventeen, I was hospitalized for anorexia at 80 pounds. I was in treatment multiple times, yet at thirty, I was somehow 200 pounds. I had spent my entire life dieting and exercising so that I wouldn’t get fat – but I got fat anyway. And then, when I was overweight, the diets and exercise programs weren’t helping me lose any of the weight. (Neither was the therapy, personal development, or spiritual growth.) Toward the end, it wasn’t even about the weight anymore. I had resigned myself to being fat. It was the constant judgment, shame, stress, anxiety and drama picking away inside my head that I just could not take anymore. That had to stop.  I could not keep living this way. Fortunately – or unfortunately – depending on your point of view – someone in my family had already committed suicide. I saw what that did to my mother, and I just couldn’t put her through that again. So, I was stuck. I could not keep living the way I was living – but not living wasn’t an option. Out of desperation, I HAD to find a different way to live. I have been living this "different way" since that dark night of the soul, and I have to tell you – it’s pretty amazing. I eat whatever I want whenever I want – no muss, no fuss, no drama. I move my body in ways that feel good to me. I feel good in my body and I feel good about my body. Other people seem to think I look pretty darn good – especially given my age. But the most important thing is that I have my life back.

    Frequently Asked Questions


    Carmela's Approach is Truly Revolutionary

    I was stuck. I knew from painful years of experience that diets didn’t work. And every alternative weight loss approach I tried left me feeling angry, deprived and frustrated. I thought the problem was me: I had a bad attitude; I needed to try harder.

    Then I came upon Happy Calories Don’t Count®, and I had the revelation that the problem wasn’t my failure, it was the failure of the diet and exercise model. 

    Carmela’s approach is truly revolutionary. She puts forth a new paradigm that not only makes sense, it works.

    Following her five steps, I appreciate my body, enjoy my food, and made it through the holiday season having lost weight. No need for a New Year resolution this time!!!

    I'm free from food and weight obsession!
    Carmela, I wanted to thank you and let you know that you have been the final step for me in my journey to freedom from food and weight obsession. It feels like new ground, as I feel like a new person. Thank you!
    ~ Rachel
    I'm wearing clothes I haven't worn in over 6 years!
    I had been thin all my life, but ended up gaining a significant amount of weight while dealing with an illness. I tried for years to shed the excess weight but nothing worked. In one afternoon Carmela helped me see how my relationship to my body and my thoughts about food and exercise had changed when I suddenly had weight to lose. The weight started falling off and now I’m wearing clothes I haven’t worn in over six years!
    ~ Linda C.
    This is the only program that is totally different!
    I have to say Carmela that this is really the ONLY program that is completely off the diet and exercise teeter-totter, and I have done a LOT of research. It is seriously amazing, so thank you!
    ~ Paige K.

    THANK YOU FOR WRITING YOUR BOOK!
    Thank you for confirming what I'd suspected about weight - it's not all about calories in and calories out. I'm just trying to focus on being happy as I am now.
    ~ Nikki D.
    Reading this book changed my life!

    My weight loss journey up until Happy Calories Don't Count was a losing game (and I'm not talking about pounds), not a victorious one. After reading this book, my life became a journey of finding my true beauty and health by listening to my body and making choices that aligned with my happiness. Happy Calories Don't Count taught me about awareness. Reading this book changed my life. This is not a typical diet and exercise book (Thank God!).

    ~ Stacie P.
    This program is amazing!
    Carmela Ramaglia is one of the most incredible women, beautiful, wise, funny - that I have ever met in my life!

    The weight fell off while I have had the best gastronomical months of my life!
    I’d just like to thank you for everything: the book, the discovery session, and the one-word lifesaver of a tip. *Chill*.

    I followed your advice. I went on a ‘research-diet’ and unsubscribed from all of the health blog sites. I haven’t read a single nutrition/fitness article since! And I don’t miss it at all.

    Now, I don’t over think the amount of food I put in my mouth, however big or small it may seem. I get off the bus several stops behind my destination, when I feel like it, to stretch my legs and enjoy the weather.

    *Calories-shamalories.* I’ve had the best gastronomical (almost) two months of my life because I’ve been so connected with my hunger and appetite. I’ve been eating the crème de la crème without losing my mind because I’ve practiced the habit of stopping when I’m full.

    Sure enough, the weight fell off. I am now free to enjoy my courses and have the confidence to present my work in class.

    And abovie all, if I never lose another single pound, I've discovered the things that make me *happy* an my head-space is a lot sunnier as a result.

    Everything finally feels right and I feel like a new person!
    Carmela, I wanted to thank you and let you know that you have been the final step for me in my journey to freedom from food and weight obsession. Just the other day, I had a moment of surrender that made me realize the fight was over, just like the surrender you've talked about. I finally quit, I didn't need to fight food or myself any longer. It happened a few days after I gave up on the lingering diet mentality thoughts (thanks to you and the teeter totter diet idea), there was no more problem to hold on to. Like I posted before 'I want to work with my body and not with a diet,” this phrase came to me like your phrase “happy calories, don't count,” which I absolutely love, because it is utterly true they don't. It's nice to eat what I want, when I wanted without the idea that I am “bad” for “emotionally eating.” What a big misunderstood concept. You cleared that all that up for me. When I surrendered, I realized that there was never a problem with me, I didn't need to be fixed because I was never broken. I was just not in alignment with myself (a new and exciting term I learned from you), and now I understand what self sabotage actually is, it is being out of alignment with yourself. Plus, I can finally have the relationship that I wanted with my body now that the fight is over. I simply don't care what I do with food, I give it no attention. Everything just feels right. Food really doesn't bother me anymore because I refuse to give it any power over me. I am choosing to not focus or get emotionally involved with it. Food is just food and how I feel physically and emotionally matter more to me than trying to live up to any standard. I just let things happen and follow what feels good and makes me happy. It feels like new ground, as I feel like a new person. Thank you!
