Transform your relationship with food now.


Sophie Effect

Hi! I Am Sophie Deram, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with a French accent!
My twin passions for over 20 years have been the science of nutrition and the neuroscience of eating behavior.


Transform Your Beliefs

We are bombarded all the time by new information and tips on nutrition and eating habits. In this module, we will take a break to reflect and to make peace with our food. Your transformation begins here.

Transform Your Food

In addition to learning more about nutrition, you will discover Nutrigenomics, a new science that will help emphasize the importance of paying attention to food quality.

Transform Your Brain

Your brain controls everything, including your weight. Understand why it is important not to stress your brain with dietary restrictions. We will talk about factors that influence your weight, the different types of hunger and we will also introduce you to Neuroscience.

Transform Your Kitchen

I have three tips for you: “No restrictive diets”, “Eat real food” and “Cook”. Cooking is very beneficial, as proven by research. In this module, I will give you tips to make your life easier and show how you can cook on a day-to-day basis without having to be, or hire, a four-star chef.

Transform Your Behavior

When it comes to improved eating quality, your behavior is as important as the nutrients themselves. Here, I will address topics of Sociology and Neuroscience to help you reflect upon and improve your transformation.

Transform Your Life

Here I will list 7 (seven) secrets to consolidate your transformation. They are the keys that will help you fully transform your life by allowing you to make peace with your body and changing your eating patterns to enable you to reach a healthy weight while rediscovering pleasurable eating.
