  • You’ve been dieting since you were a teenager.
  • You’ve lost and regained the same weight over and over again.
  • You feel like all you do is think about food, eat food, track calories/macros/points/syns and then worry about food.
  • You exercise because you feel like you ‘should’ but you don't enjoy it.
  • You choose workouts based on how many calories they burn.
  • You delay things in your life for when you reach a certain goal weight – relationships, career changes, even happiness!
  • You’ve said the words “I’ll be happy once I reach [X]lbs”
  • You’re fed up with all of this and want a permanent change.
  • You’re beginning to realise that diets do not work.
  • You’re beginning to realise that there must be something more to life than worrying about weight, food and calories. [You’re right – there is! So much more in fact and you’re missing it!]

All of this is taking a huge toll on you psychologically, as well as physically.

Research shows that yo-yo dieting and weight cycling damages your metabolism, causes weight re-gain and increases your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, chronic inflammation and loss of muscle. I bet these were all things you were trying to prevent in the first place, by dieting to lose weight, right?

Psychologically speaking, by dieting you’re much more likely to struggle with disordered eating, such as restriction, bingeing and even purging (which includes over-exercising with the intention of burning off excess calories).

Let’s also talk about the financial cost of dieting. You probably pay gym membership to encourage you to exercise. You may even pay slimming club fees to keep you accountable to your diet. You buy health magazines, vitamins, healthy snacks and new workout clothes.

There's a part of you that clings to the idea of finding 'the right diet' the one that will work this time.

But deep down you know that the next diet will fail too. You’re just not sure how to escape the dieting cycle.

The key to escaping the dieting cycle is the right mindset. The health mindset instead of the dieting mindset.

Without the right mindset, you are just wasting money, time and energy on all that other stuff, while you're still not improving your health or how you feel about your body, and may in fact be causing more damage to your well-being.

I can help you develop the health mindset.

The Health Mindset Programme™, brought to you by Beyond The Bathroom Scale ®, is for busy women who want to heal their relationship with food, exercise and their bodies. (That's you, right?)

"As the name of her blog, ‘Beyond the Bathroom Scale’, suggests Karen Oliver believes improved health depends on more than the constant monitoring a narrow range of parameters"

- Susan Krueger, Diet and Nutrition Adviser at Your Food For Life



  • When you join, you'll have instant access to all the Quick Start 6-Day Course, Induction Module, Prep-Work content, the Diet Culture Module, Body Acceptance Module, Body Awareness Module, Emotional Eating Module, Intuitive Eating Module, and the Health Beyond The Scale course (inc. three modules: Gentle Nutrition, Joyful Movement and Health Assessment) - all within The Health Mindset Programme™.
  • Each module is broken down into short, bite sized lectures, packed with actionable advice - because I know you have a busy life!


  • For each module there are downloadable PDF worksheets and practical exercises to help you overcome a lifetime of dieting, poor body image and disordered eating.


  • This won't be a case of 'join and forget', there will be monthly accountability check-ins to see how much progress you've made with conquering the dieting mindset and identifying any new issues.


  • You will get angry at an industry that profits from making you feel bad. Together we will tackle diet culture. We’ll learn what it is and how to recognise it, tune out from it and how to finally break out of the dieting cycle.
  • You’ll tune out the harsh voice in your own head that tells you you're lazy, not good enough or not disciplined enough, and you’ll replace that voice with a compassionate, friendly voice. The real you.
  • You’ll learn how to listen to your body’s cues for what it really wants, and you’ll know exactly how to give it what it wants. This is the antidote to dieting!
  • You’ll learn to love food again and feel at ease with not tracking every little detail about what you eat.
  • You’ll remember what it’s like to move your body for the sake of enjoyment instead of obligation – like when you were a child and ran around jumping in puddles and dancing in your bedroom.
  • We’ll tackle common issues such as poor body image, emotional eating and self- compassion.
  • You’ll learn about a whole new world away from dieting, including the social movements that are fiercely fighting back against diet culture, and promote body confidence and healthy habits without a focus on weight loss.

Karen Oliver

Karen is the Founder of Beyond The Bathroom Scale ®, a feminist health psychology blog and the Programme Director of The Health Mindset Programme™. She also regularly writes for Huff Post.

Her award-winning blog and coaching programme is based on the Health at Every Size ® approach to health and draws on the principals of Intuitive Eating, the Body Positivity movement, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Positive Psychology and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), in order to help busy women tackle disordered eating, overcome emotional eating and recover from long-term dieting via a holistic, research-led online coaching programme.

A former Social Worker, Karen comes from an academic background of Psychology and Sociology. She holds a Bachelors degree in Sociology, specialising in health and society and a Masters degree in Social Work. She has trained in Counselling skills and Psychotherapy-based approaches such as CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing, and is currently studying towards a Diploma in Professional Nutrition.

When she's not working or studying, she can be found either running after a very active toddler, watching Netflix with her husband, painting with a glass of wine in hand, or in the gym, where her passions are weight lifting, swimming and yoga.

She is also a carer for her father, who has been diagnosed with Vascular Dementia and her mother, who struggles with her mental health and suffers with Anorexia Nervosa.

Karen has successfully reversed hypertension and pre-diabetes and overcame her childhood and teenage eating disorders. She credits a huge change in mindset for being able to do this, which was her inspiration for The Health Mindset Programme.

  • "The emotional eating module was LIFE CHANGING for me! I never realised that comfort eating was benefiting me on some level but it all makes sooo much sense for me now. I've been working really hard the last few months to tune into my emotions and pick apart my thoughts to figure out what I really need (it isn't wine - who knew! haha!). The worry journal exercise has stuck with me the most, it's been so helpful, thank you so much for all your help and the videos and workbooks!)" - Programme Member, May 2018
  • "I've just got back from a restaurant with my hubby. I thought about what you said about 'unconditional permission to eat' and I ordered exactly what I wanted on the menu (no salad this time!). By our third course, I felt full, but satisfied, like on a deep emotional level, as well as in my belly. I just stopped eating midway through my dessert (this is really HUGE for me, I NEVER stop eating midway through dessert!) and I didn't feel like I'd missed out, or wasted food, offended someone for leaving it, or anything like that. It was just amazing like I could actually listen to my belly and stop eating without the mental battle and wanting to binge." - Programme Member, April 2018
  • "I haven't weighed myself in weeks, I just don't care about that number anymore because I'm enjoying my life, eating food I actually like and doing yoga too...and you know what? I feel damn good about myself for the first time in years! I cannot thank you enough, Karen!" - Programme Member, December 2017

Frequently Asked Questions

+ Is this programme a diet & fitness plan?

No, this programme is focusing entirely on improving your mindset and healing your relationship with food, exercise and your body. To do this I draw on my academic and professional background in Sociology, Psychology and Social Work (where I trained in counselling skills).

+ How can I get the most out of this Programme?

You'll see enormous breakthroughs if you show up and engage with the programme and reviews at least once a month. I recommend you take notes in your included Reflective Journal too, as these are really useful to look back on over time and see how much your mindset has shifted.

+ What if I am unhappy with the programme?

I would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, please contact me in the first 30 days of joining and I will give you a full refund. Please note: The money back guarantee only applies in the first month of membership. You can cancel your subscription at any time, with just a few clicks and no questions asked.

+ Is there anyone this Programme is not suitable for?

Yes. This programme is not suitable for anyone with an active eating disorder, as I am unable to provide the intensive individual support and medical expertise required. Please refer to the disclaimer at the bottom of this page for more information.

+ How long will The Health Mindset Programme™ last for?

The programme is entirely self-paced. So you may decide to try it out for one month, or you may choose to stay on the Programme for six months, a year or even longer! You can cancel at any time. When you join you will be given a list of the modules and a suggested time frame for following the Programme, as well as monthly coaching emails, where we'll focus one particular bundle for that month. You'll have instant access to all of the content as soon as you join and you will be able to pick and choose which ones you take and which in which order you work through them. You'll have unlimited access to the materials for as long as you choose to remain a member of the programme.

+ Why do you offer a monthly subscription?

Ahhh, I'm glad you asked. I have three reasons: 1) Charging a small monthly fee helps me keep the programme going and helping as many people as I can heal their relationship with food, exercise & their bodies. 2) Research has shown that you're more likely to commit to something that you invest in financially - if I gave access away for free, it's likely that you would sign up and then forget about it. What would be the use of that?! 3) Charging monthly fees instead of one large upfront fee, also means that you can cancel anytime you want if the programme isn't for you.

+ How long do I have access to the programme?

After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you remain a paying member - across any and all devices you own.

+ Will I still be charged if I don't use the Programme?

Yes. It works in the same way as Netflix or gym membership - in that it you'll be charged monthly, regardless of how often you log in. Members are encouraged to engage with at least one module a month and the monthly-check in, in order to get value for money and progress through the programme.

+ Is VAT included in the price?

Yes, where geographically applicable, VAT for your country has been automatically included in the price.

+ Why do you only offer plans in USD?

For technical reasons (due to my course hosting platform and payment gateway) I am only able to offer PayPal as a payment method when I charge in USD. As PayPal is a popular payment method for many, I have opted to charge in USD rather than GBP. Rest assured your payment method will automatically convert the prices for you.

+ Which payment methods do you offer?

Payments can be taken securely through PayPal and Stripe.
