"What an original approach. You don't diet at all for the first 3 months because your mind
and your body are not ready for the stress of dieting. First you get ready and then you learn your personal
pathway for weight control that you can sustain."
"I never heard of anything like this before
and was blown away by how they are addressing this issue."
"At first I thought that I did not really need the Problem
Mastery Programme. It was when I hit my first bad day that I realised just how much I actually did need the
Problem Mastery Programme."
"Been there, done that and got the T shirt.
The trouble was that I had been to the wrong places, done the wrong things and bought the
wrong T shirts. I thought all weight problems were the same; boy
was I wrong! You can learn a lot from this and it can change, really change, how you understand and work
with your weight problem."
"I had no idea about
Human Algorithm's® and how they related to my behaviour. I thought my
weight problem controlled me! Now I know how to understand the things that influence me to be overweight,
drink too much and hate myself. It feels slow at times as I am not trying to lose as much weight as I can,
as fast as I can. It is when I look back at how far I have come that I realise just how much progress I
"I have spent a small fortune over the
years on diets, new clothes and wishful thinking. Now I have invested in myself and I
am finally sorting out my problem. Its not cheap but it is
good value. I wish now that I had done it sooner and someone
had told me about this approach."
Our approach provides a new
Vision, a new Plan and a new focus for understanding and working with persistent Weight problems, Obesity and Eating Disorders.
Finding The Information You Need To be Really Successful
How do you cut through all the noise to find the truth that you need
to be successful with weight control?
We help those with persistent weight, obesity and eating
disorders to find the truth that they need to change their lives and change their relationship with the problems
that they experience.
We provide the opportunity for real
change and development in a world that is full of noise, false promises, fake news and inaccurate
We are committed to real and true
solutions that produce sustainable results.
We provide people, with persistent
weight problems and eating disorders, with the Opportunity to have a new lifestyle and the structure and support to do this through using our Weight Problem Mastery
The Problem Pyramid & Weight Control
Our work with persistent weight problems and eating disorders, shows us that at
any one time about 15% of those with weight problems and eating disorders are naturally in a position to fix and
improve their problem.
These are the 15% of people who are in the top of the Problem Pyramid
(Green Zone). if they take the right actions, over the right period of time, then they can successfully
change their weight problem.
Another way to understand this is that their probability for achieving a
successful outcome with changing and mastering their weight problem is increased when they are in the top of
the Problem Pyramid and reduced when they are in the bottom (Red Zone).
This means that about 85% of those with persistent weight problems and eating
disorders are not naturally in the right position to fix and improve their problem.
This also applies across personal, business, organisational and any other
structure, system or process which involves Human Behaviour; so people with weight problems and eating disorders
are not alone.
This is important to understand as those in the top of the Problem Pyramid
will require a different solution to those in the bottom of the Problem Pyramid. We take account of all of this
in our Problem Mastery Programmes.
So the approach to weight control that someone chooses will have little or no
effect if the person is in the wrong place in the Problem Pyramid. It is critical that dieters understand this
and understand that the correct matching of their problem and the solution they want to use is critical for
Using the Problem Pyramid we can see why so many people fail with dieting and
weight control. Organisations like Weight Watchers and Slimming World treat all weight problems using the
Dieting Pathway. One approach that is supposed to work with everyone; but fails to do so.
The reality is that most of the people with persistent weight problems and eating
disorders are going to be in the bottom of the Problem Pyramid.
And the bottom of the Problem Pyramid divides into sectors as you move from the
top to the bottom; each of those sectors requires a different weight control solution.
When you understand where you are in the Problem Pyramid, you increase
your chances of finding the right weight control solution for that place. We do this as part of our Problem
Put simply: If a dieting approach works with the top of the Problem
Pyramid; then it is unlikely to work with the bottom.
A failure to understand this process is what is leading to many compromised
dieting and weight control solutions and, as a result, we have an increase in the number, size and complexity of
the problems facing those with weight problems and eating disorders.
Our work focuses on understanding when the top of the Problem Pyramid is relevant
and when it isn't. We also focus on moving more people with weight problems from the bottom of the problem
pyramid to the top and then helping them to achieve a new lifestyle.
We can provide consultancy related to this area and Problem Mastery Programmes
that allow us to help someone change their relationship with their weight problems and eating disorders. Contact us

Psychosomatic Weight Control Problems
Most persistent weight control problems could properly be called
Psycho-Somatic in their nature and this is what we work with.
This approach enables us to look beyond simple weight loss and to work with
Mastering Weight Control. While we are doing this it gives us the opportunity for dealing with the other problems
that someone has. People do not develop weight problems and eating disorders in isolation from a selection of other
We have found that if people simply focus on
weight loss, then most of them will become perpetual dieters and over time, their problem can become more complex
and difficult to deal with. We look to end the influences that the problem has over the person and the
way that it influences their behaviours and lifestyle.
We want to help people
with weight control problems to find and control their own Human Algorithm® for their weight problem and
use this to achieve Mastery over their problem. To get our help contact us on (44) 07787
The Real Weight Control Challenge
The challenge facing all weight control and dieting approaches is in two
1. How do they get more people into the top of the Problem Pyramid so they are
able to be more successful.
2. How do they then increase the long term success of those in the top of the
Problem Pyramid, so that they can sustain the results and improve on them over the medium to long term.
This is what The Human Algorithm® Consultancy has focused on
A process that works with the Psycho-Somatic nature of weight problems to
produce more effective and sustainable long term results; that can be repeated.
To achieve this we provide Problem Mastery Programmes with
a focus on moving more weight problems from the bottom of the Problem
Pyramid for weight control, to the top; and then achieving Mastery of the problem.
Weight Problems Are Growing & Becoming More Complex
Do you know that there are now more people with Weight Problems and Eating Disorders than
there has ever been in the history of mankind.
The fat person has become the
The fat person with the weight problem is also the fat person with Depression, Stress, Anxiety,
Relationship issues and other Life challenges.
The weight problem has merged with
other Life problems and they have become more complex and difficult to treat.
To treat them we need to better
In reality these problems are
Hybrid problems, that often have their expression in the physical world and their roots in the Emotional,
Psychological and Behaviour Development that is created by someone's inner world development as they go
through their life. In other words; they are Psycho-Somatic in nature.
To deal with these problems
effectively we need to understand and work with this.
Our view was that to begin to
influence and change these problems in the right way, that we required a new Vision and a new Plan. The old
approach doesn't really work and its time we acknowledged this.
Why The Normal Approach To Dieting Doesn't
The normal approach for dealing with persistent weight problems and
disordered eating is to use The Dieting Pathway. This approach is used by
companies such as Weight Watchers and Slimming World and by many in the Medical profession.
This approach focuses on food, weight, diet and exercise (The Physical
Aspects where the focus is on weight loss) but it has a very limited sustainable effect upon the medium to
long term consequences of weight problems and often leads to the practice of long term repeat
This weight loss focused approach, now has so much influence and control over
people that it is normal for people to spend decades trying to deal with weight problems using this approach.
We once worked with a woman who had tried this approach for 40-years and who still had the problem when she came to
Because companies like Weight Watchers and Slimming world require a large
volume of users, they try to work with anyone and everyone. This approach has a failure rate that matches the
Problem Pyramid. About 85% of the people that they work with each year fail to achieve and maintain any form of
weight control over the medium to long term.
Those that do achieve weight loss that is significant (Dieter of the
Year) usually return to their previous habits and put the weight back on.
So instead of dieters following success; they are usually imitating
failure and as a result they become a dieting failure themselves.
What is typical about this approach is that it fails to influence and change
behaviours over the medium to long term and it has little real success for those with entrenched Weight
and Dietary issues.
In my experience it also produces Yo-yo dieters and re-enforces the Weight
problem, making it harder to treat.
So what can be done about it?
The real question that everyone has: How Do I Become Successful With My
The real underlying question everyone has is this:
How do they reach the place where real change with their weight
problem becomes a possibility for them; that can be turned into a really?
I worked with this problem over the course of many years. My
goal was to create a new type of Solution that
could be delivered through Programmes that have been designed to create "The Condition of Possibility" that
The Condition of Possibility is
the place where it becomes possible for real and permanent change to
This is the place that those with Weight Problems want to reach but usually
This is the place where Change
that has previously been difficult or impossible to achieve; can begin to
These points of change are so
special that we called them Genesis Points. Our Problem Mastery Programmes help people with weight
problems to reach and use Genesis Points and use them to change their weight
Through this process we work with
the Psycho-Somatic nature of their weight problem and help them to
This process creates permanent
The Problem Mastery Programme Format
The Problem Mastery Programme for persistent Weight Problems
and Disordered Eating is a tailored programme provided in 1-year long modules. Each Module has a
maximum of 46 sessions.
Each Programme has a Programme Manager who provides guidance and one-to-one personal
assistance throughout the Programmes module.
The Programmes are comprehensive, high quality and high value Programmes that
include a mixture of Consultancy, Training, Mentoring, Experiential Learning, Support, New information, a New
Approach, New Systems and Structures that you will not have been exposed to before.
In reality; the most complex and difficult problems, that score
high on the Problem Scale™ will need to be worked with over time and in a stepped process. To achieve this we
simply link modules together and work at different levels. This format allows complex and difficult problems to be
dealt with in module format and for the person to undertake their journey from the problem to the
solution with realistic time scales and allows the space for Experiential
Our Problem Mastery Programme will normally include working with the
