How it works

Discover the three easy steps to our plan and the science behind how it all works to help you lose weight*.

*Your weight loss will vary according to your individual circumstances and how much you have to lose.

Step 1

A healthy eating plan

Our healthy eating plan, called Food Optimizing, will help you make changes to the way you shop, cook and eat. There’s no special food to buy, no pills, no shakes, no tiny portions and no calorie counting.

By choosing these foods you can enjoy satisfying food, and a surprisingly large volume of food for fewer calories, which means that you can lose weight beautifully* without going hungry and naturally limit calories without counting a single one."

"At first I couldn’t run for five minutes without getting out of breath and was envious of people who made it look effortless. Now I can do five miles easily and on weekends I go for 10-mile runs."
