A 4 week group weight loss program designed to jump start your weight loss. Menu plans use real food in the right proportion. It is about slow carbs, not low carb, healthy fats not fake fats, and lean proteins that taste good.
Weight loss is more than just a calories equation. Food provides the body nutrients. Supplying the right nutrients to the body is essential to turn on the bio-chemical pathways that lead to insulin control, decreased inflammation, hormonal balance and hence weight loss.
(Dietary supplements are recommended for interested individuals, rationale for each nutrient will be explained.)
