Lose weight and improve metabolic health in just eight-weeks. Many participants have reversed their type 2 diabetes, improved blood pressure, and gut health.


Methods for losing weight and improving health are not the same for everyone. Some people struggle to lose one pound. Others compromise their health by losing weight the wrong way.

Whether it is losing weight, getting off prescription medications, reducing cancer risk, or reversing type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance, our coaches and programs offer safe and effective practices in nutrition science, metabolic health, and behavior psychology. Our programs encourage you to be accountable and inspire you to continue the journey to a healthier you!

Dee Dee Miller

There are many ways to lose weight but none are like this. You literally feel like you are not dieting and you learn to eat regular, every day food and the fat just comes off. The best thing I’ve ever done.”

Andrea Caldwell

There are many ways to lose weight. The programs you get here are above and better than anything you could imagine. I lost over 40 pounds and it never felt like a diet. It’s a lifestyle!

Cindy VanWienen

The thought of eating food I love and losing weight didn’t seem realistic until I did it. Learning how to combine food to lose weight can help so many people. You’re in the right place. God Bless!!!


We have helped 23 physicians lose over 100 pounds! One of our physician’s lost 165 pounds. Today, hundreds of board certified physicians recommend the Diet Free Life methodology to their patients.

“I recommend Diet Free Life to all my patients because it’s sensible. You’re able to lose weight and create healthy habits that last a lifetime.”

What I like most about the Diet Free Life program is that it includes a variety of foods that you can find in any grocery store, it’s flexible, and has simple but clear instructions of which foods to choose and how much of them you should have. Overall, I have had a great experience with Diet Free Life. The changes in my eating habits happened slow and I didn’t feel deprived of my favorite foods. I was not only able to lose weight, but I have more energy (which is important when you are an older parent and want to keep up with your kids’ activities). What I would say to anyone who is not aware of Diet Free Life is to start today!”

Common Questions

We get these a lot…

What can I expect once I become a client?

As a client you are working privately with a certified coach. You receive a customized nutrition plan that is specifically tailored to your food preferences and lifestyle. It does not get better than having a coach. The built-in accountability that puts you in a position to win!

Do i have to exercise?

No, you do not have to exercise. We do encourage being active and when it comes to fitness, it is recommended for both the mental health and metabolic benefits.

How much weight can i lose in a week?

We have had people lose up to 20 pounds in their first week. We cannot and do not promise a certain amount of weight loss in a specific amount of time. Weight loss varies from person-to-person.

Why get a carb threshold report?

You quickly find out if your body primarily burns fat or carbs for fuel. This also includes being informed if you have a level of insulin resistance. Once you know this, you can then eat in a way that shifts your body to primarily burning fat. Plus, with the Carb Threshold Report you get a 30-minute consultation where a certified coach goes over the report with you. During this time, you will be provided a prescription as well as get answers to your questions.

What is insulin resistance?

Insulin resistance affects up to 50 percent of the adult population, and studies have demonstrated that 88 percent of the adult population is metabolically unfit. One of the primary reasons adults over the age of 40 struggle to lose weight is insulin resistance. It is a condition linked to weight gain, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, migraines, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), fatty liver, pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes and hyperinsulinemia to name a few. Insulin resistance is when the body’s cells don’t respond normally to the hormone insulin, which is largely responsible for regulating blood sugar. This said, it is important to note that you can have normal blood sugar and still have insulin resistance. The good news is that insulin resistance can be reversed.

Do you have programs for children?

We have programs for children that are experienced through their parent or guardian. In our first clinical trial with Aetna insurance, we demonstrated that coaching the parent/guardian resulted in positive outcomes for children of all ages. To learn more about how this program works, it is best to contact us for a free consultation.

In our second 8-week trial with 24 participants (Medicaid/Medicare members), the retention was 93%. All participants lost weight and improved Hemoglobin A1C, blood pressure, triglycerides and cholesterol. This trial was funded by Highmark Wholecare (previously known as Gateway Health Plan).
