Frequently Asked Questions
WellnessFromFood is a lifestyle-based weight loss program that uses education, personal coaching, and nutritional ketosis to achieve maximal results. The program is highly effective and can produce results within the first week.
Nutritional ketosis is a safe and effective weight loss method that involves using fat for energy instead of carbohydrates.
When you eat carbohydrates, the hormone insulin pushes the food energy into your fat cells for storage. If you keep eating carbs, your insulin levels remain high all the time and prevent you from actually using that energy.

The result: you’re constantly eating because you feel hungry, your fat cells get stuffed, and high insulin levels over time puts you at risk for conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
The following is a breakdown of the program. You will receive time-released virtual lessons and meet with a dietitian throughout the program. The dietitian meetings will occur weekly or biweekly at first, but will occur less frequently as you become more comfortable and confident with the program.
  • Phase 1: Induction Diet (3 weeks) At the very beginning of the formal program, you will be asked to make and consume 2 high fat/low carbohydrate meal shakes daily. This is a temporary phase that eliminates your carbohydrate cravings and induces nutritional ketosis (fat utilization for energy instead of carbs). The induction diet sets your body and mind up to be successful for the rest of the lifestyle-based program.
  • Phase 2: Transitions Induction (4 weeks). Safely transition away from the shakes while adding more food back into your diet.
  • Phase 3: Transitional Diaeta (5+ weeks). Diaeta is the Greek word for way of life. In phase 3 you will transition away completely from the induction shakes while still keeping your carbohydrates very low. In this phase you will work on diet variety and continued weight loss. The length of this phase depends on each individual’s progress and weight loss goals.
  • Phase 4: Find your Carb Zone (4+ weeks). Start to slowly add some carbohydrates back into your diet with a goal of keeping them below 50 grams per day. Each person’s Carb Zone is different and requires some experimentation.
  • Phase 5: The Diaeta (lifetime). Once you find a comfortable number of carbs for your body, you will focus on simply maintaining your new way of life, which involves building diet variety and identifying ways to overcome carb temptations.
If you have type 2 diabetes or prediabetes, your body cannot metabolize carbohydrates effectively because you are insulin resistant (your body creates insulin but cannot use it to digest carbs). Any carbohydrate, even “healthy” carbs, will raise your blood sugar and cause you to store carbs as body fat.

Dietary fat on the other hand does not raise your blood sugar and is a safe source of energy. When you remove the carbohydrates from your diet and use fat for energy instead, you lower your insulin levels thus making your body highly receptive to weight loss and less likely to store that stubborn body fat.

Over time, as you consistently keep the carbohydrates out of your diet, insulin resistance and blood sugar will get progressively better and you will require fewer and fewer medications.

WellnessFromFood teaches you how to keep those carbohydrates out of your diet long-term so you can say goodbye to diabetes for life.
While you may see results initially, the fewer calories you eat, the slower your metabolism gets. Eventually, you will stop losing weight entirely and may even regain weight despite keeping your calories low. Additionally, because fat has more calories than carbs or protein, you will likely consume more carb-heavy foods, which raise insulin levels and cause your body to store body fat. You end up experiencing constant hunger, dissatisfaction, and fatigue, making a low calorie diet nearly impossible to continue long-term.

On the other hand, by learning to eat a wide variety of foods that satisfy your hunger and give you energy while still inducing weight loss, you will feel great and are likely to stick with it long-term.
If you identify with any of the following, WellnessFromFood is an excellent fit for you:
  • You are overweight or obese and ready for a lifestyle change.
  • You have tried other diet programs that ultimately didn’t work.
  • You have developed weight-related chronic disease(s) such as prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, reflux, or sleep apnea.
  • You would like to save hundreds if not thousands of dollars by eliminating prescription medications you currently take for diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol, or reflux.
  • You love the taste of real food and want to stop dieting.
WellnessFromFood is not just a low carbohydrate diet program. We keep you accountable and teach you the skills necessary to stay on track long-term.
Weight loss is a personal journey and everyone loses weight at their own pace. The time needed to complete the program will vary based on your starting point, personal goals, and underlying health conditions.

Most people complete the courses in 12 to 18 months.
WellnessFromFood is not simply a diet, it is a lifestyle program aimed at long-term weight loss success.

Sadly, the majority of people who diet regain the weight they lost within 2 years because they do not make the lifestyle changes needed to keep the weight off. Consider the following: In most cases, people gain weight and/or develop diseases like type 2 diabetes over the course of years, not weeks or months. Likewise breaking old eating habits and forming new ones can take months or even years.

Therefore, it is essential to devote sufficient time towards learning and internalizing your new lifestyle in order to achieve life-long weight loss and remission of chronic disease.
