I think I’m ready, but what exactly am I committing to do?
THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE “DIET”- BUT THAT’S WHY IT WORKS. You must be physically and psychologically prepared to adhere to a very strict diet (plant based with lean proteins) for the majority of the program. There are opportunities for “date nights” but you need to be prepared for most of your meals to be prepared at home or to bring your food to events. Don’t worry- we give you recipes and ideas to make it livable!
We STRONGLY recommend clearing your calendar of social commitments and travel for the first ten days. While not a “cleanse” in the traditional sense, the first ten days are extremely rigorous and you will need to have complete control over your food preparation. It is extremely difficult to do the first ten days if you have travel or social obligations.
DAILY REQUIREMENTS INCLUDE
Provide your weight daily
Share all meals, drinks and snacks
Exercise 3-4 times each week and provide proof of workout. Workouts can be whatever moves your body and brings you joy. While exercise is important for mental and cardiovascular health and reducing the risk of disease, the majority of your success relies upon adherence to the dietary portion of the program.
Being in constant proactive communication with your coach via text
We are happy to discuss the commitments in-depth, simply contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How much weight can I expect to lose?
We can never guarantee results, and the biggest factor in your success is your willingness to adhere to the program and commitments. That said, we have helped clients to lose anywhere from five pounds to over 70 pounds.
You set your goals when you sign up, our only request is that your target weight fall within CDC guidelines for a healthy BMI.
Our clients who are the most successful do the following things-
- experiment with new foods and the recipes we provide
- are thorough, accurate and honest in reporting their food and workouts
- are proactive in their communication with us- we don't have to chase them down for check ins
- have the active support of family and friends
- meal prep on weekends, and plan ahead for the week
- bring food to social events and when traveling
- exercise in a way that is varied and enjoyable (walks, spin, yoga, toning)
Most clients see a significant loss the first week as their body clears of processed food, which slows to a more sustainable rate as the program continues. A sustainable rate of weight loss is typically 1-2 lbs a week.
What payment options and plans do you offer?
We accept most forms of payment including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover and PayPal. You can purchase our program in any duration, knowing you always have the ability to add additional months. We also offer installment payments through ShopPay
We offer referral bonuses to clients who refer their friends, and multi-month payment discounts for clients who are on ongoing monthly support. Contact us for more details.
What kind of program is this? Is it something I'm familiar with like keto or vegan?
Our proprietary REAL Phase system is based upon eating real, whole foods as nature intended- primarily plants and organic, lean protein. Certain food groups are avoided but we provide plenty of options and variety to make it interesting! It is most closely related to a paleo diet, but is in a phased approach most conducive to weight loss.
Do I have to live near you? Are there meetings or appointments?
Nope! Our coaching is 100% virtual! Most of our clients are in other states and we've even had international clients. We do everything over email and text. We have found this is the most effective way to be responsive and in constant contact with our clients. We are available to clients via text 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We do not do phone or in-person meetings or appointments.
I have dietary restrictions, can you work with me?
We can work with all dietary restrictions (celiac, lactose intolerant, pescatarian, kosher, vegtarian and vegan) , so contact us if you have a specific need.
Wait, this is all over text? I can't call you?
Prior to starting, we do an intake call so that we can get to know you better and you can ask any questions you may have about the program and give you a chance to get comfortable working with us. After that, our communication is exclusively over text and email. We do not do client calls during the program, as stated in our contract. Our business is text-based so we can be 100% responsive to all our clients, and that all of your coaches have full visibility into your progress and questions!
What happens when I finish the program? Am I all on my own?
We are here for you! If you still need support in meeting your goals after your program is up we have a option to keep you on track.
Once you hit your goal weight you will receive our detailed LIVE program booklet which gives you general guidelines and foods to eat to live your life at your goal weight and optimum health.For past clients who find themselves sliding back into old habits during the holidays or times of stress, we have a one month "refresher" to get back on track. You're never alone.. Any time you need a refresher simply pay for a month- you never have to pay the initial program fees again.
This is a big commitment of time and money. Is it worth it?
Yes, it is. Our programs are for clients who are ready to commit to making a permanent change in their life and want the support to do it. You do need to make it a strong priority in your life and be prepared to focus on yourself. You will need to make sacrifices, and schedule time for food preparation and exercise. That said, there will never be the "perfect time" without stress or complication, and we can help you navigate the program despite life's obstacles.
As far as the financial investment- Keep in mind a week of our constant support, monitoring every meal and workout, answering every question and cheering you on is about the same cost as an hour of personal training but with more impactful results! Almost all of our clients renew for monthly support at the end of our program, and our number one source of clients is referrals.
I have a medical condition, can you guys work with me?
In certain circumstances, we can accommodate clients with medical concerns. We evaluate this on a case by case basis, so please contact us to discuss your specific circumstances. We do not accept clients who are or may be pregnant, have an eating disorder or related mental or behavioral health problem, or any other unmanaged physical, psychological, or emotional condition that would present any risk.
Minor injuries, past surgeries, or other aliments where exercise or dietary modification is possible can typically be accommodated. Though your program materials are under a Non-Disclosure Agreement and may not be shared, your NDA does not apply to your medical providers and we actively encourage you to get approval from your physician prior to beginning this or any nutrition program.
Do I have to buy special shakes or bars?
NO. Shakes, protein powders, packaged snacks or convenience food are not part of our program. REAL food means just that- food found in nature. Sometimes we may recommend vitamins or supplements we love, but they are always optional and can be purchased through Amazon.
I don't want to lose weight, but I'd like to improve my eating and exercise habits. Can you help?
Do you work with Men or Couples?
Absolutely! We have tons of male clients and have successfully worked with couples. We love when a couple decides to support one another and do the program together! For couples who decide to join together we offer 30% off the second sign up- just contact us for a code!
Do you work with kids or teens?
At the moment we are exclusively working with men and women aged 21-80. That said, we are all moms who cook for our families, so we recommend very family-friendly meals and products your kids can enjoy so the whole family will eat healthier.
How many clients do you work with?
There is no "magic" number where we cap our client list, but we limit the number of new clients we onboard each week, as we want to be as responsive as possible. We always start new clients on a Monday, so you are only on the RESET portion of the program for one weekend.
I want to be a coach! Are you hiring?
