“You don’t need another diet, you need eating skills and psychology”
Hi, I’m Josh Hillis!
I help people beat emotional eating and finally hit their body composition goals.
I do that by putting research and coaching experience together to create cutting edge weight loss systems.
Those cutting edge weight loss systems show up in my books, workshops, and coaching.
Using a skill based (not diet based) approach allows people to create a new relationship with their bodies and with food, and get results that have previously never been possible.
My newest book is Lean and Strong: Eating Skills, Psychology, and Workouts (2020). In the works is a yet-untitled emotional eating book (2023).
I’m the creator and head coach of GMB Fitness’ Eating Skills program.
I’ve been writing this blog, joshhillis.com, since 2007. I’ve also written for Strength Matters Magazine, and have been quoted or featured in Experience Life! Magazine, The Denver Post, Los Angeles Times, Men’s Health, and USA Today.
I currently attend Metropolitan State University of Denver, and I’m doing an honors thesis on contextual behavioral science and emotional eating. After 15 years as a personal trainer and coach, I’m getting a bachelor of science in psychology and doing undergraduate research. I won the psychology department’s “Promising Teacher Award” for my work as a TA.
I also write, fix, and fact check questions for the National Academy of Sports Medicine’s Personal Trainer Certification Exam.
I specialize in working with people who have tried multiple diets in the past. Typically, folks have had success with most of those diets, for a while, but eventually it all comes apart. They repeat that cycle for years, or decades. Getting out of “The Diet Cycle of Failure” is just a matter of discovering the right eating skills and the right tools from psychology. In this blog, you’ll get both.
