The Weight Loss/Weight gain issue:

Weight Problem

The 30/10 Weight Loss for Life protocol takes an integrative approach to you slimming down with a goal and objective for you achieving your 30/10 defined healthy/ideal weight. We understand that weight loss and weight gain is primarily mental, emotional, habit and behavior. These vital aspects of our being must be addressed along with the diet. Our state of mind is really the critical link. You have to want to change, a sincere willingness to let go the bad habits and those bad habit "demons" (sabotaging thoughts and feelings). We incorporate taped Self Mastery Sessions (see SMT/Brainwave) in addition to behavior modification techniques to help you repattern how you think and feel about food, diet, exercise and weight loss for life. Each person has their own individual issues with food and diet that causes them to put on the weight that has prevented them from slimming down. Our protocol is very precise and we strive to make the process as easy as is possible with the addition of great tasting nutritional food products. Best results are always obtained with the person who has the desire, commitment, determination and conviction to achieve their desired state at their ideal weight.

Ideal Weight vs. Target Weight

The protocol of 30/10 body composition analysis is to take a client into what we call the "ideal/healthy" weight. Clients frequently describe to us what their goals are for their "target" weight-we find that a person's desired target weight is often a number based upon emotion or just a random number of pounds they have in mind. Most people have several target numbers they want to achieve. Our emphasis with each and every 30/10 slim down client is their specific "ideal/healthy" weight, based upon their body composition numbers. Our experience within the 30/10 protocol is that the value of achieving ideal weight is to let go the unnecessary fat that negatively impacts metabolism and physiology. Our clinical experience is an improved metabolism at the "ideal/healthy" weight. At ideal weight, clients then become eligible for the Accountability Weigh-ins.

We will NOT Abandon you

When you achieve your healthy "ideal" weight (normal healthy body fat percent and visceral fat rating), we will not abandon you!! We will want you to return for frequent accountability weigh-ins at no charge. Accountability weigh-ins are critical after you reach ideal weight, as they help change habits and behaviors over time.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How does your program work?
We provide our clients with great tasting nutritional food products to help make the process of slimming down easier and more certain. The only thing you will have to concern yourself with as far as food preparation is your dinner meal which we will discuss with you in detail. We incorporate taped Self Mastery Sessions (see SMT/Brainwave) to help refocus/re-pattern how you think and feel about food, diet, exercise, and weight loss for life. Many of our larger 30/10 facilities offer infrared sauna sessions (see Infrared-Sauna). Weekly weigh-ins, coaching and support help create a positive environment to keep you excited and enthusiastic about your progress and direction.

Tell me about your Nutritional Food Products
Our nutritional food products provide you with a healthy amount of protein and nutrition that you will need to allow your body to burn the fat. We have a wide variety of food options that satisfy the palate. The average client finds 5-8 products that they love from our large variety of choices, all with different tastes and textures.

The possibility of losing 30 lbs. in 10 weeks* -that cannot be possible! How can you get such great results?
We have developed this diet program to be as easy and effective as is possible for the average client. It is a very precise program that gives your body what it needs to burn the fat, not the muscle. Clients who follow the program precisely really can and do realize superb results in a relatively short period of time.

*Individual results can and do vary. Industry standards are 1-2 pounds a week. We are not a calorie restriction diet, the 30/10 program is a carb restriction diet program.

Once the program is over, am I on my own to try to keep the weight off?
Absolutely not! We will not abandon you once you reach your ideal weight. We want our success clients to continue to come in for periodic Accountability Weigh-ins every 3 to 4 weeks at no charge. If you do happen to gain weight between accountability weigh-ins, we are able to catch the gain early on and then coach you on how to lose that gain at home with regular food. We would then have you back in a week to be certain that gain is gone.

How many times a week do I need to come to your office if I start the program?
You will come in once a week for weigh-ins and to pick up food products for the following week. We will also sit and talk to you if there is an issue or concern. You will be able to experience the 20 minute taped Self Mastery Sessions on each visit and infrared sauna if you are a candidate for sauna in those 30/10 facilities that incorporate infrared.

What is the cost?
The cost depends upon each individual client. Stress issues, health conditions, medications, number of pounds to lose and body composition analysis findings will all determine the cost and duration of your individual program.

Will I be able to exercise? Exercise and an increased activity level are always beneficial to support a healthy lifestyle and to boost metabolism. Many of our clients have feet, knee and hip issues due to chronic weight gain. When they drop their first 30-50 pounds, they often begin to feel much better and naturally begin to become more active.

Self- Mastery Technology (SMT) is a process of reaching deep levels of relaxation and then using guided visualization to form mental images in the direction of your desired state. For weight loss clients, the desired state is their realization of an achieved ideal weight, when improved habits and behaviors make the process of slimming down easier and more certain. Letting go of the self-defeating/sabotaging thoughts that hold you back and keep you trapped in a chronic cycle of Yo-Yo dieting and frustrating weight gain. Visualization with feeling and belief, is the primary component of imaginative thought and is at the core of the human ability to create, innovate and shift into improved states of mind.

In order to overcome the detrimental effects of chronic stress, we want to be able to get out of the fight or flight response and into the relaxation response. The relaxation response cannot happen as long we continue to generate high beta brainwave activity. Our brainwave activity must dip into alpha, the intuitive mind, or theta, the inventive, near sleep mind.

Many believe that theta is the optimum state for creativity and that it's the only frequency mode in which one can make a quantum leap in consciousness. Unfortunately, theta is a difficult mode to maintain. This is where the SMT frequency following response comes in: it keeps your brain engaged, allowing the brain to be trained to generate more alpha and theta waves and fewer beta waves.

How is your program different from Atkins or Weight Watchers?
The 30/10 protocol is an efficient weight loss program that provides the client adequate protein and vegetables. We strive to make the slim down process easy and more certain by incorporating great tasting nutritional food products. The Self Mastery taped sessions help refocus and re-pattern how you think and feel about food, diet, exercise and weight loss for life (see SMT/Brainwave).
