Q: Isn't Losing Weight Fast Unhealthy?
One of the biggest myths propagated by the fitness industry is that only 1-2 pounds of fat loss a week is healthy.

This is because when you force your body to lose weight through chronic intense exercise and low calorie restrictive diets, 1-2 pounds a week is the best result you can get.

The truth is, your body desperately wants to get rid of the inflammatory fat, as it knows how dangerous it is. The problem is it's too stressed and inflamed to be able to do so. It's waiting for the right signals.

When you heal the body, get rid of the inflammation and toxins, and send it the proper signals, the fat melts off, and in the process you feel amazing.
Q: Are These Results Too Good To Be True?
Since our clients are mostly women in their 40s-70s who've tried everything else and cannot lose weight or keep it off, we hear this all the time. We've had over 800 women go through our process, with an extremely high success rate. It's possible. Need some more convincing? Check out our facebook page, youtube channel, or Testimonials page on our website. Our clients all say:  "If I can do it, so can you!"
Q: What About Loose Skin?
Our clients who've released 90 pounds or less have little to no issues with loose skin, since we are providing the body with lots of minerals and vitamins to maintain the elasticity and collagen of the skin, along with detoxing the body. 

That's why the women in the videos and photos look 10-20 years younger after only six weeks.

For those looking to release 100 pounds or more, loose skin is more likely.

Surgery may be an option.
Q: How Many Calories Am I Eating On The Program?
There are 4 phases of the program: Priming, Loading, Releasing, and Maintenance. 

During priming, you will not be counting calories. This phase is designed to "jump start" the metabolism and reverse years of damage from yo-yo dieting. It is also designed to heal the wounded emotional relationship most people have with food.  It also enhances the detoxification process of the body, gearing it up for the next 3 phases. 

On the loading phase, you will be consuming a lot of food.

On the releasing phase, we move away from calorie counting, and instead focus on portion sizes. You will be eating two large meals daily, both of which are delicious and satisfying. Our clients report very little to no hunger, and feel light, satisfied and energetic.

A big part of our philosophy is educating our clients on how to have a healthy relationship with food that is simple and sustainable. 

On maintenance, we have you increase your meals to three a day, and teach you to increase your food intake to match your new metabolism.

Once you've reached your goal weight, we will teach you how to re-introduce all the food you love back into your diet, while maintaining your new goal, without ever having to count calories again!
