Once you join the program, you will be offered a personalized meal plan that’s customized for every member that joins.  This means that a certified coach will tailor a plan that fits your exact needs in order to see the weight loss goals you desire.  As a member, you will also receive one-on-one coaching, a smart body scale with a home link bridge and discounts on more than 100 Profile-based products.

The program works in three phases:  Reduce, Adapt and Sustain.  During the Reduce stage, the first phase, you will be in what’s considered the active weight phase, and it’s designed to put your body into ketosis by eliminating your carbohydrates and sugar.  Adapt, the second phase, is designed to help you transition from losing weight to help maintain this new weight loss.  The final stage, Sustain, is designed to place all of the nutrition, exercise and lifestyle modifications into action.

Throughout the program, you can meet with your coach, either in person or in virtual ways, to help discuss your goals, track your progress and answer any questions you have.  As long as you’re an active member paying the annual dues mentioned above, you can have a dedicated coaching team.

Exercise is also an important part of the program, and the amount of exercise you need will all depend on your experience with exercise and your fitness levels.  The program will work with you to determine an effective exercise program that will work for your body.

How much did you spend?

Was it worth it?  

  1. Klaas (Texas City,  Texas) paid $700 and said:

    I’ve lost 10 pounds in two weeks, but the cost of materials has been on a pace to exceed $700 per month. That’s hard for a retired teacher and wife, whose monthly food budget has been $400. Your estimate of meal costs seems too low. We will continue as long as we can lose unwanted weight, for it is easy and effective, but will look for ways to reduce costs.

    Was it worth it? Yes
