What if you could…

become the woman you’ve always know you could be
and start living the life you’ve always dreamed of?


DEEP DOWN YOU FEEL THE PULL.
THE URGE TO JUMP.
THE DESIRE TO…

  • Take risks, find adventure, and be engaged in your life instead of sitting on the sidelines watching, wishing, waiting for your life to change and making empty promises to yourself about “someday.”
  • Be completely consumed by happiness, connection, & living in the moment; instead of being controlled by food, weight, and self-doubt.
  • Know who you are, what you want, and start living the life you imagine – so that you can in turn give generously to others because you’re not stuck on “fixing” yourself.
  • Be madly in love and feel desired, relaxed, and giddy instead of doubting why someone would want you, pursue you, or be delighted in your body.
  • Eat healthy, but deliciously – without feelings of deprivation or guilt for indulging in foods and drinks you love {like butter, cheese, wine, pizza, french bread, desserts…}.
  • Create real relationships with & celebrate other women instead of all the comparing and competing of our bodies and achievements.
  • Feel happy, proud, and confident in your body so that you look forward to getting dressed, shopping, and excited about the creative ways to express your style – instead of shying away.
  • Live & lead by design instead of defaulting into all the habits, thought patterns, and routines that leave you feeling like there has to be something more…that you’re meant for.

I know I did – every single day – but I felt stuck.
And when I started to listen and watch the women around me, I realized I wasn’t alone.

DO YOU TOO WANT TO FEEL…


But, you’ve tried self-help books, career achievements, counselors, calories, and/or cleanses, and nothing lasted?

There is a different way…

Katie Den Ouden Black and White Photo

How do I know? That was me. Several years ago, I was using food, achievement, and numbing out to feel in control of my life.

I knew there was more to me – for me to truly LIVE, love and celebrate my life – but somehow I had gotten stuck on the sand watching others truly live their lives in the water. I tried self-help books, career achievements, counselors, calories, and cleanses to get back to “me”, but nothing lasted. I was trying to get a lifelong result but I was using a band aide.

Then, I made a choice…I would no longer stay stuck. I made it my job to learn, experience, and uncover everything needed to come back alive, shed the weight {body + heart}, and unleash my true life, body, and happiness.

Through my own journey, life education, BA and MA in psychology, Integrative Nutrition school, participation in several coaching and lifestyle programs {all-together totaling over $100,000}, reading and dog-earing hundreds of books, coaching over 180 women in addition to the 400+ women who’ve completed the Live By Design Program, and being featured as a food, freedom & lifestyle expert for nationally recognized companies, I’ve now experienced and uncovered quite a bit about how to feed your soul, find your freedom, and love your life

Skinny Dip Society Immersion

Here’s what I discovered: I was doing it backwards. The secret? You have to…feed your soul first, meaning uncover who you really are, unleash your desires, own your worth, treat your body fabulously, surround yourself with sisterhood, and live the way you think you will live when you get “there” instead of waiting for something, some one, or some day. Then…we start shedding excess weight {body + soul}, being well-fed {food + soul}, and feeling wild, free, and alive.

LIVE BY DESIGN is the culmination of everything I’ve uncovered along the way, showing you step-by-step exactly how this can happen for you too.

I’ve brought together what really works – to create a road map, not a blanket approach or rules – that you can use to feed your soul, find your freedom, and ultimately live + love your life.

Through the research-backed and results proven 8-pillar roadmap, you get the exact tools, mindset shifts, and strategies to get unstuck for good. All within a sisterhood of women joining you and stretching you into your best life. It’s your time. It starts with a choice. Join us…

you can…

become the woman you’ve always known you could be
and start living the life you’ve always dreamed of.

SO, WHAT KIND OF WOMAN IS LIVE BY DESIGN FOR?

WHO IS LBD PERFECT FOR?

  • You’re stuck in the waiting cycle – “When I’m wealthier / thinner / smarter / with a man/ have more time/ get the next promotion, THEN I will {insert your desires}.
  • You’re thirsty for more than a quick fix and open to change.
  • You’re ready to create authentic relationships with like-minded women that are full of support, encouragement, and grace.
  • You’ve been arm-wrestling with any of the following: self-care, overachieving, perfectionism, weight, emotional eating… and ready to feel freedom once and for all.
  • You’re willing to put in the time and do the work to get what you desire.
  • You’re done complaining, comparing, and blaming and ready to – finally – start living the most passionate, exciting, alive life possible {with support}.

WHO IS LBD NOT PERFECT FOR?

  • You don’t like hearing new ideas and ways to think about things.
  • You’re not willing to support, engage with, and stretch other women in the sisterhood.
  • You don’t really think this approach {or any} is going to help you.
  • You’re looking for a quick fix or to be a specific size.
  • You have a tendency to blame others or outside circumstances, be dramatic, complain, and look at the glass half empty.
  • You’re not willing to put in the time or thought.
  • You’re looking for a meal plan and strict workout program.
  • You don’t like to have fun. {Really?}

Frequently Asked Questions


Click the question to expand the answer below.

I'VE DONE SO MANY BOOKS, DIETS AND PROGRAMS BEFORE, HOW IS THIS ONE DIFFERENT?

You get out of this what you put into it. If you’re not willing to do the work, explore, and reach out for support when needed, this isn’t the right program for you. The women who have jumped in and done the work have had results beyond my/their wildest dreams. They are living and loving their lives completely.

And, this program is very different in that....Exact opposite approach. Happiness first, body follows. Devotion instead of discipline. Uncovering instead of shaming. Stretching you into your best life combined with generous support. Well-fed vs. restricting. Fun vs. boring.

Plus, it makes it a lot easier to want to do the “work” when it’s fun and a sisterhood of women are journeying to living by design + the water with you.

I WANT TO JOIN THE LBD PROGRAM BUT I CAN'T AFFORD IT. IS THERE ANY OTHER WAY TO DO THIS?

How much energy, time and money are you spending already on feeling stuck, trying to find ways to get happier, and avoid? There will always be limited time, limited money, and worries (i.e. fear this won’t work for you). But the truth is we make time for what’s important, we spend on money on what we value, and we stop worrying when we start taking action to change.

An investment in yourself is often the first step and catalyst for believing in yourself and taking action to shift and design your life. LBD is an investment in your freedom, confidence, and joy.

If you’re interested in joining LBD, but truly not able to at this time, it will be offered again Spring 2019 with a scholarship contest. I highly recommend you put it on your calendar and save up your resources so you can invest in YOU. I’ll be waiting with open arms.

SHOULDN'T I BE ABLE TO DO THIS ON MY OWN?

I used to think that exact same thing and come down on myself for why I couldn’t get out of my (deeply dug) rut! The truth is, yes you could do it on your own, but it’ll take a whole hell of a lot longer, cost you a lot more money, sacrifice more of your precious life as you are waiting, and it’s pretty lonely. I’d rather you join me in the water now and find freedom in the roadmap and sisterhood we’re sharing. :)

WHEN WILL YOU BE OFFERING THIS AGAIN?

Most likely Spring 2019. But, my real question for you is, “What are you waiting on?” Like skinny dipping, living by design is a little scary, adventurous and unknown. There is never a perfect time and we are never fully ready. We must run and jump and watch our lives transform. You will always be busy, not ready, or not have enough money. Choose joy. Choose action.

I'M WORRIED ABOUT THE ONLINE LEARNING AND/OR TECH SIDE. WHAT KIND OF TRAINING/SYSTEMS DO I NEED?

What you need: A computer, internet access, headphones (optional), and access to a printer. That’s it.

Online learning: We keep things super simple, offer constant tech support (support@katiedenouden.com), and use very basic websites, call in numbers, and a private facebook group page to connect.

I’ve found that online learning proves to be even better than in person (if done right) because it allows you to go at your own pace, work it into your schedule, and connect with women around the world that provide different perspective, stretching and support.

WILL THERE BE ONE-ON-ONE COACHING WITH KATIE?

This is an online group coaching program. I offer the weekly group Q&A calls where every woman can receive 1:1 interaction and I am very active in the private group facebook page. However, there is no direct email or phone coaching available with this program.

I HAVE A REALLY REALLY BUSY SCHEDULE. WILL I HAVE TIME FOR THIS?

Previous LBD members estimate about 3 to 5 hours/week with the first couple of weeks a little heavier in time commitment than the latter 5-6 weeks. This amount gives you time to dig into the weekly information, complete fun weekly challenges, connect on the group page, and truly uncover and unleash your desires. AND with that said, some previous ladies are surgeons, lawyers, chefs, teachers, moms... All have extremely busy schedules and they dove in and changed their bodies and lives.

WHAT IF I AM NOT ON FACEBOOK?

The sisterhood is an beautiful aspect of the Live By Design experience. Together, we can create a safe, supportive container for this deep, fun, and freedom-giving work. As you can see from the testimonials, this sisterhood is a huge catalyst for the change in their lives. However, we do have members who complete the program without Facebook and still reap a TON of rewards.

With that, I know some of you love Facebook. Some of you hate it. Some of you have never used it. We’ve tried other forums, but nothing has worked as well as Facebook.

You will need to have a Facebook account in order to participate in the private Facebook group and receive comments/questions from Katie, support from other sisters, and important information and updates (sent via email as well).

But, a Facebook account is NOT required for the program content and live calls. Several ladies have participated in this form as well.

WHAT IF I CAN'T ATTEND A LIVE CALL?

No problem. I’ve designed this course to have multiple opportunities for coaching at different times during the day and all live coaching sessions will be recorded and provided shortly after. Plus, the option to write-in your question/celebration beforehand to be answered on the call is available. AND, did we mention there’s massive support in the online group page? :)

HOW LONG WILL I HAVE ACCESS TO THE MATERIALS?

For as long as we offer this program, you have unlimited access.

ARE YOU GOING TO PUT ME ON A DIET?

Hello, love? Have you read my story above? no way!

DID THIS PROGRAM USED TO BE CALLED SKINNY DIP SOCIETY? WHY?

YES! :) For clarity of program focus + outcome, it has been renamed to the Live By Design program, but the content, fun, quality, and sisterhood still remains!

Why previously called SDS? When I was in college, a group of my girlfriends and I decided to go skinny dipping one night. So, we drive out to the beach and we’re laughing, there’s anticipation, excitement, and the thrill. We get there and find a “secluded” area and in a matter of minutes we’re running full speed to the water shrieking, laughing, tripping…

We felt the rush and exhilaration of fully living in the moment, not worrying about our bodies or thinking about food or a to-do list to check off. We were feeding our souls and freeing our bodies in a sisterhood of women.

We weren’t held back. We weren’t stuck. We weren’t confused. We weren’t weighed down. We were happy. wild. brave. free. ALIVE.

The Skinny Dip Society embodies that feeling and shows you how to feed your soul and free your body so you can truly love and live your life.

DO YOU HAVE A REFUND POLICY?

We have a 100% happiness guarantee. I have poured my heart and soul into this program because I know how much of a game changer this approach, tools, and sisterhood was/is for my life, for the women who’ve already jumped, and what can be for you. I’m so sure of it, that I give a 100% happiness guarantee.

You have 14-days from the official start date to email us and you can have all your money back. All you’ve gotta do is email my team letting them know you’re not satisfied AND submit all your completed soulwork sheets, and I’ll refund you 100% of your investment. NOTE: Refunds cannot be requested until the first week of content opens.

I HAVE A QUESTION THAT HASN'T BEEN ANSWERED HERE, HELP?

You bet! Just email support@katiedenouden.com and we’ll get back to you lickety-split with a good dose of joy and answers.
