How much weight can I expect to lose?
Whether you would like to lose a small amount of weight for a special occasion, such as a wedding or reunion, or want to make more significant changes, Bodyweightloss has program options to meet your needs. Using Bodyweightloss weight management products and/or online web services in combination with a modest calorie intake, a balanced diet and regular physical activity you may expect modest weight loss over a period of several weeks. Modest weight loss can be defined as approximately 1 to2 lbs. of weight loss per week. Bodyweightlosss on average, can help you lose those 1-2 lbs. per week. Results may vary based on an individual’s personal weight history, body composition, level/frequency of physical activity, and motivation among other factors.
Experts agree that losing 1-2 lbs. a week is a healthy and sustainable weight loss range, so keep that in mind when you set your weight loss goals and expectations. You may lose more in your first few weeks on the program, but slow and steady wins the race!
What are some of the factors that can impact my weight loss?
There can be a variety of factors which may impact weight loss. These factors can include—but are not limited to—health status, body composition, medications, age, eating habits, calorie intake (both too low or too high) and/or exercise. Since there are many factors which can impact weight loss, we recommend seeking the advice of your health care provider prior to starting a weight management program.

They say it’s unhealthy to lose weight too quickly. Is that true?
With many weight loss programs, when a person experiences rapid weight loss (generally greater than 2 lbs. per week), the body’s tendency is to burn essential tissues (muscle, protein and electrolytes), making the person feel weak and tired and become ill. The body also restores these essential tissues and fluids at its earliest opportunity, causing rebound weight gain.
It is best to lose primarily fatty tissue and not normal necessary tissues (muscle, protein and electrolytes). Supplementing with vitamins, herbs and minerals to ensure your body gets the proper nutrition it needs.
My overall health has declined since putting on weight. Can losing weight reverse the trend?
Yes, absolutely. Being overweight puts you at risk of developing cardio-vascular diseases such as hypertension, high cholesterol, angina, and others as well as metabolic diseases like diabetes and fatigue. As soon as you start losing weight you can actually start improving or reversing your medical conditions and diseases. Our clients reduce and usually eliminate their need for insulin and medications for blood pressure, cholesterol, angina, and arthritis along with their healthy weight loss.
How was the Bodyweightloss Program developed?
The Bodyweightloss Program has been designed by registered dietitians, and doctors in consultation with an expert Medical Advisory Board, whose recommendations are based on the latest nutrition, exercise, and behavioral strategies for weight management and disease prevention. We’re proud to offer our clients a comprehensive, scientifically proven ways to achieve and maintain their desired weight.
What are the goals of the Bodyweightloss Program?
Excess weight is often related to lifestyle. The goal of the Bodyweightloss program is to teach you how to make healthy lifestyle choices:
Eat Well — A Healthy Relationship with Food
Along with balanced, lower-calorie food choices and portion control, the program emphasizes the importance of tuning in to physical/emotional eating cues and the pleasure of eating via our menus and online weight management course. Teaching clients to be mindful about what they eat is the first step in making healthier, more satisfying choices.
Move More — An Active Lifestyle
The activity component of the program encourages clients to gradually increase activity through a combination of natural, planned and “playful” physical activities. Bodyweightloss offers activity products that encourage clients to engage in a variety of cardio, resistance and stretching activities. Materials help support client with important variables such as lack of time, ongoing motivation and changing body image.
Live Life — A Balanced Approach to Living
As weight issues are, in part, a reflection of thoughts and emotions clients bring to their weight loss efforts, the program emphasizes cognitive strategies to help clients develop a more balanced, positive mindset.

Can I follow the Bodyweightloss program if I'm on medication or breastfeeding? What about diabetes?
Diabetics: If you have diabetes, take the Bodyweightloss plan to your physician or dietician for review to make the necessary adjustments to meal patterns, food choices, and portioning. It is your responsibility to adhere to modifications made by your health care professional.
We recommend that you consult your physician before starting any weight loss or exercise program, especially if you are taking any diabetes medications, as your dosages may need to be adjusted as early as your first day on the program. Our weight loss plan is not a cure, prevention or treatment for diabetes, and is not a substitute for diabetes medications. Losing weight helps you to lower your blood sugar so you can manage your type 2 diabetes.
Diabetes is a very common problem and there are many people who are diabetic because they are overweight. The extra weight results in poor carbohydrate control. They develop diabetes and will need insulin and/or other medications to control their blood sugars. Many of these people even continue to gain weight as a result of the pills and the insulin.
When you follow a healthy diet and lose weight properly, you have better control of your foods and blood sugar levels. Inevitably you’ll see that control becomes easier with less medication. All our Type 2 diabetic clients (often called adult onset diabetes) end up reducing or discontinuing their costly medications (pills and insulin).
Proper weight loss results in a lowering of high cholesterol and a reduction in hypertension. Thus, your doctor may be able to reduce or discontinue medications you are taking to control these diseases.
The Bodyweightloss program is designed to meet nutritional recommendations for healthy people. If you are taking medication or have a medical condition, you are strongly encouraged to take the plan to your physician or dietician for review. Modifications made by health professionals are your responsibility and should be taken very seriously.
Nursing moms: We strongly suggest you consult your physician before beginning any weight-loss plan while still breastfeeding.
Do I have to exercise on the Bodyweightloss program?
Regular physical activity is an important component to lifelong weight management, and overall health and wellness. At Bodyweightloss, we encourage our customers to achieve national health recommendations of 150 minutes of moderately intense physical activity each week.
Do you protect my privacy?

Children under 14 years of age may not be on the Bodyweightloss program. Adolescents aged 14-17 years require a specific meal plan and physician approval.
