We are offering you a package designed to help you lose weight in a healthy and natural way. Our programme is designed to make you feel great not just after you’ve shed those extra pounds, but also during your weight loss regime. Following our plan means that your body gets all the nutrition it needs – not just to keep you going, but to help you reach your optimal performance – while burning excess fat. If you are carrying around extra weight, chances are that your lifestyle is not conducive to healthy living. This is why we think long-term and want to help you transition towards a sustainable, healthy, and realistically achievable lifestyle, where you can keep those pounds off and feel great on a day-to-day basis!
A Comprehensive Programme Consisting of Two Components
We are offering a two-component weight loss package. Firstly, there is a diet and nutrition plan tailored to your needs, formulated by a fully qualified, licensed, and insured nutritionist. Secondly, we will provide you with the products that are integral to the plan.
A Diet and Nutrition Plan
Our plan recognizes the connection between toxicity and weight gain. Before we explore this in more depth, let’s be clear that when we talk about weight loss, what we really mean is fat loss – shedding the pot belly, moobs, wings around the arms, love handles, etc. and – importantly – also the fat around the organs that is not visible from the outside.
There are two aspects to the toxin-fat relationship:
Firstly, our body uses fat cells to store excess toxins it cannot process. A healthy body breaks down or expels the toxins we are naturally exposed to. However, if the toxic load increases beyond what our body can handle, toxins are stored within fatty tissues to make sure they cannot harm other important parts of the body. This means that it would be very hard if not impossible to lose excess fat if in fact the body needs it to store toxins: You would feel pretty awful once these toxins are no longer encapsulated by fat cells and are released into your body. What’s more, your body will do anything it can to produce more fat to keep those toxins at bay. So if you want your body to co-operate in giving up excess fat, you need to get rid of the toxins first. Secondly, some environmental toxins found in household cleaners, pesticides etc. are now known to be directly linked to weight gain. These toxins are called obesogens and interfere with normal fat regulating hormonal or neural activity in the body.
Our weight loss programme recognizes the toxin-fat relationship and always begins with a 14 day detox routine. Detoxing first will help you navigate through weight loss without feeling hungry or deprived. In fact, you should feel strong, healthy, and more alert as you enter and then progress through the weight loss phase of our programme.

Wholesome Food for a Wholesome Body
Both the detox and the weight loss phases of our programme are based on wholesome, mostly (or, if you wish exclusively) plant-based nutrition. We will provide you with recipe ideas for healthy meals that don’t require any special cooking skills and can easily be prepared without any fancy ingredients. We recognize the need to have realistic expectations of what people can and want to fit into their schedules and routines. That’s why our programme easily fits into a busy family or work life.
Our programme combines simple wholesome home-prepared meals with products from the JuicePlus+ company.
The JuicePlus+ Complete shakes contain the right amount of protein, fibre, carbohydrates, and fats, and are a good source of important vitamins and minerals. They have a low glycaemic index, and are completely pesticide and preservative free. Unlike other ‘weight management’ products, they are also free of artificial sweeteners, colourings and aromas. They can be made with soy (or other non-dairy) milk for a completely vegan option, as well as with low-fat cow’s milk. At about £1.40 / €1.90 per meal they are also very affordable.

The JuicePlus+ Capsules contain concentrates of 30 fruits, vegetables and berries, processed with a proprietary juicing and drying procedure that preserves as many phytonutrients and vitamins as possible in their natural form. Even with the best of intentions, none of us probably eat enough fruits and vegetables. JuicePlus+ is there to help you bridge that gap, making sure that your body gets the nutrition it needs to thrive – because mere surviving is just not good enough!

The Juice Plus+ Omega Blend offers a plant-based combination of Omega 3, 5, 6, and 7 fatty acids from seeds and algae. Many diets are short of Omega acids, which are important for brain function and hearth and eye health. Let JuicePlus+ help you close the gap between what you should eat and what you actually eat. Unlike other supplements on the market, the JuicePlus+ Omegas do not contain any fish oils because they harvest the naturally occurring Omega acids from plants like sea buckthorn and pomegranate. The capsules themselves are made from tapioca starch so the entire product is 100% vegan.For more information on JuicePlus+ Omegas, click here.
