Lifestyle Weight Loss is a program to assist those who want to reach a healthy weight and maintain it. In eight weeks you will be on your way to a new lifestyle of healthy eating with confidence that you can reach your goal and sustain it. Our support system includes:
- An effective, four-tiered plan for sustained weight loss. We use researched-based and established protocols for long term health and weight loss. This is not an extreme, short-term diet, but a sustainable, long-term plan.
- A plan based on eating real food that you plan and prepare. We advocate healthy, non-processed foods. You may maintain any personal bent involving vegetarian or low-carbohydrate choices.
- Training in meal planning and preparation.
- Help with cravings and the difficult emotions surrounding dietary changes.
- Solutions for the challenges of social settings and home life.
- A time for you to share your struggles and successes in a small group setting.
- Weekly 15-20 minute coaching calls.
- A private Facebook group.
Here are several testimonies of past participants following the 8-week Lifestyle kick-start program:
In seven weeks, I lost 25 pounds and 1 ½ inches from my waist. Even more exciting is that my diabetes is now under control and I am off all diabetes medicines. I have also gone from two blood pressure medicines to one. My doctor was amazed by the change and is considering reducing my final blood pressure medicine by half as long as I continue on this path! My lab results from my recent visit came back with all the numbers being in normal range. I can’t remember the last time that happened!
With the program I lost a total of 28 lbs. and have it kept off. I feel so much better with weight off my joints but most importantly I got my life back because I no longer have any of the severe IBS-D symptoms which made me so debilitated. I am so thankful to work the program because I now can focus on others areas of my life and grow instead of being consumed with thinking about food.
Following the Lifestyle program, I was able to drop 52 pounds in under 12 weeks from 227 to 175. In the following several months I was able to keep the excess weight off. The results in my life were complete normalization of my blood sugar, great blood pressure and pulse rate. My snoring and sleep apnea were eliminated. I am now wearing long- saved clothes from my younger, military fit days. I now desire the foods I should eat rather than those I should avoid.
