WHAT ACTUALLY WORKS
All you really need
are three things:
All you need is a reset...
We believe in "knowledge, not products". There is one homeopathic supplement included with the program that is in liquid dropper form and provides support during the release phase. Otherwise, this plan does not require handfuls of pills or gritty shakes to choke down. We teach you how to nourish yourself with real, whole foods purchased wherever you do your grocery shopping.
Yes and No. The ketogenic diet is a "high fat" diet that puts you into ketosis. Our program limits fats during the release phase and promotes eating a reasonable amount of healthy fats for the maintenance phase.
That depends on you. We do our best to provide you with the tools and the mindset to make lifestyle and diet changes sustainable over the long term. People generally feel so good after 6 weeks that they don't want to go back to the way they were before. We truly believe that what we teach is a long-term strategic health plan that is doable by almost anyone. If you take the time to learn all of the materials, participate in the group calls and reach out for help when needed, and then continue to be active in the community beyond the 6 weeks, we see no reason why you couldn't keep working towards your goals (if not yet reached) and stay there.
Good question. Depending upon the individual, your goal may be to lose more weight than is possible during the initial 12-week program. For those people, we recommend cycling onto the maintenance phase (the "forever eating plan") and then cycling back into one of our future program groups. This has allowed some of our members to lose over 70 lbs total over the course of a year.
If you have been diagnosed with any health condition, it is imperative that you check with your healthcare provider(s) before starting any new nutrition or exercise programs. The best way to describe the plan is to explain that you will be starting a diet that removes all processed foods, reduces refined carbohydrates and sugars, and instead focuses on lean meats, vegetables, and fruit.
Yes, with clearance from your healthcare provider(s). A whole foods diet that focuses on complex vs. simple carbohydrates has been shown to be effective for promoting healthy blood glucose levels. If you are taking medications, they will most likely need to be adjusted during this program with the help of the prescribing provider. If you have been prescribed insulin, you must present a note from your doctor stating that they have approved this plan for you and that they will monitor your medications closely and adjust as needed. I highly recommend purchasing a CGM device (continuous glucose monitor) so that you can tell your doctor regularly how your blood sugar is changing. Many get off their medications while on this program.
Yes, with clearance from your healthcare provider(s). A whole foods diet that focuses on complex vs. simple carbohydrates has been shown to be effective for promoting healthy blood pressure. If you are taking medications, they will most likely need to be adjusted during this program with the help of the prescribing provider.
