Yes. Our program is highly effective; it bridges the gap between knowing what you should do and getting you to really do it, while giving you the exact support you need during the process. It may be hard to believe since you've likely done a lot of programs that have failed you, but this one won't.
You will receive all of the information you need, and be able to communicate with our Dietitians and Cassie about what's working, what adjustments to make, and what you need more help with. That is why the program WILL deliver results, because you will have our science-based guidelines and your own team of experts at your side to help you reach your success.
It's different for everyone. It depends on your body, where you're currently at, and how dedicated you are.
Overall, we're confident to say that in as little as a week or two, you will experience radical shifts in your energy, sleeping patterns, moods, libido, and overall happiness levels. Some people will lose weight in that time frame too, and for others, the pounds may melt off gradually over time.
The real question here is: How are those few pounds affecting your life? You don't need to have 50 lbs to lose to feel uncomfortable in your clothes--and your skin. It doesn't matter how much you think you need to lose. If you don't feel like your best self, then it's worth addressing, period. While some of our clients have a lot of weight to lose, many of the people we work with have anywhere from 5 to 15 extra pounds--there's no amount that's too much or too little for us to tackle. The reason why is because any extra weight is a symptom, a sign of an imbalance that deserves to be addressed. Whether you have a lot of weight to lose, or you just want to fit into your favorite jeans again, there is nothing superficial about it. Plus, your goal isn't just about losing the weight -- you want to learn how to keep it off! You don't want to have to keep coming back to a "diet" every few months. So, learning how to maintain your ideal weight while still living your balanced life is also at the heart of this program.
It takes time to make lasting changes. All of our private clients go through a 12-month program, and that's because we've discovered that maintaining success has its own learning curve, too. We all celebrate when you see your ideal number on the scale or on the measuring tape, but that doesn't mean that the work is over. Making sure that you build the habits to sustain your new, happy, healthy body is our top priority. For that, yes -- you need a year.
We don't want to limit you to just a few months, then leave you to fend for yourself. We want you to commit to this change (and get our support) for an entire year, including every holiday, every season, and all of your toughest times.
As soon as you sign up! We'll send you the first set of training videos to get started right away. Then, we'll schedule your Gameplan Session, and you can hop on our weekly coaching calls and monthly highlights!
Don't! You may be tempted to start making changes or eating better before starting, but we'd encourage you to dive right in.
No need to go at this on your own for a moment longer -- besides, you may be surprised at the information you learn. It may be different than you think what you should be doing (after all, what you've done so far hasn't worked so well, right?)
Our program is strategically structured and will take you through a carefully designed system for healing your metabolism, mindset and getting you right on the fast track to get results the quickest way possible.
One of the best things is that you can do the entire program from your home (with very little time commitment). You will have a one-hour call with your Dietitian Coach each month, plus we recommend that you plan for another hour a week to attend one of our calls (as needed). After that, you get to choose how many additional calls to attend and how much support you want or need!
Plus, all of these sessions are recorded, so you so you can listen/watch anytime that fits your schedule!
So much! Every month you will have a private coaching call with your Dietitian Coach, and every week we'll have group coaching sessions with our Dietitians -- and you can come to as many of them as you like!
Plus, you get access to the live Masterclasses and 24/7 access to the Private Facebook Group, where our Dietitians will be popping in to answer your questions, give more guidance, and cheer you on.
Cassie will participate in Monthly Highlights, and she'll also jump into the Private Rule Breakers Facebook Community on occasion to share extra, exclusive content and cheer you on.
It varies. The weekly group coaching calls with our Dietitians are on Tuesdays at 12pmCST. The Monthly Highlights will move around to accommodate everyone, since we know the same day and time won't work for everyone! We'll announce these schedules in advance so that you can plan accordingly. (*Plus, every call and session will be recorded.)
No worries! Every group call and session with be recorded, so you don't have to worry about missing out. You'll be able to watch them anytime. And you will also have your 1:1 calls you can schedule at your convenience. Plus, you'll also have the Facebook Group, where you can ask your questions and receive ongoing support in between the calls.
YES! Whether you are vegetarian, vegan, paleo, gluten-free, etc, Rule Breakers can absolutely work for you.
The way we teach you to eat is naturally gluten-free, soy-free and dairy-free, and is overall very favorable to those with special dietary needs. We make it easy to customize and offer food recommendations that are in line with your needs and preferences.
While we do encourage animal proteins because of their metabolism-boosting effects, we've worked with many vegetarians and vegans alike, who see great success by replacing those will their favorite protein replacements.
If anything, this program is beneficial! Our program is about getting your body in balance, feeding you real, whole foods that are good for both Mom and Baby. So it actually helps with pregnancies and breastfeeding.
The BEST foods. As in, butter and bacon. :) Our way of eating often feels like indulging, but really, it's about including real foods, including healthy fats to support your metabolism, brain and waistline. You won't starve, feel deprived or be cranky -- at least not from the food! You don't have to be the weird one, the buzzkill, that person at the restaurant, the one on the special "diet." You don't even have to drink green smoothies or do yoga. You still get to be YOU. And you can break all the dieting rules. :)
Some foods might seem "special" if they're not already part of your regular grocery haul (like avocados or bacon), but we won't ask you to buy any pre-packaged or weird foods.
As part of the program, you receive a Private Game Plan Session with one of our Dietitians, where we will give you a personalized plan for food, exercise and supplements, should you choose to use supplements, which we recommend. But it's not a requirement.
Nope. No calorie counting. No restricting. We are not going to make a list of forbidden foods that you love and condemn you to a life of deprivation! This isn't about detox, cleanse or removing foods permanently.
What we are going to do is replace the foods that make you feel lousy with ones that make you feel great -- and we don't mean putting you on a diet consisting of green smoothies. We're talking butter and other healthy fats, meat, and a range of delicious stuff that will keep you fueled, satisfied, and wanting for nothing. And the extra amazing thing is that you don't need to be anywhere near "perfect." If you happen to go off the plan, it's easy to hop right back on, and with minimal negative consequences.
Nope! You won't be hungry. (And if you are, then you'll get to eat!) But we can tell you, you'll feel nourished and satisfied -- not deprived!
This can be a difficult concept to grasp since most weight loss and nutrition programs are based on restriction. Our program isn't like that. In fact, quite the opposite. We've found that it's critical that you are fueling your body with enough food and calories so that it can feed your metabolism and shed pounds.
This is not a medical program and should not be taken as medical advice. It is a whole-foods based program with natural supplementation focused on getting all systems of your body working as they should.
While clients have reported normalized blood sugar, eliminated allergies, healthy weight loss and a dramatic reduction of various symptoms including reducing their dependency on medications, these are simply side effects of getting your body back in balance.
We also suggest that before making any major changes to your health-care plans (including medication dosage) you should consult your medical practitioner.
We'd love to collaborate with your current provider, and help you in preparing for your conversations with him or her, including sending any records or labs to their offices. Often our clients will find that their results on our program are so dramatic, that not even their doctors can believe it! Rest assured that as registered, licensed dietitians, we rely on lab work, not theory or trend, and are prepared to answer any questions from your doctor, and guide you along the way.
Ah yes. We've heard this before, too. It's easy to believe that, after having tried so many diets and programs that didn't work, that YOU are to blame. That you're broken, flawed, an outlier, a lost cause. But none of that is true.
Chances are, most of those other programs lacked the critical components, the right expertise, and support system. Ours is not a one-size-fits-all formula, and as you'll see, it doesn't depend on willpower or deprivation to work. Quite the opposite. There's a reason we've seen thousands of client success stories, and it's because we know how to help you. Together, we will transform your body and your life in ways that surprise you.
