How many meals a day do I eat on the Better U Today program?
Every day you will have a combination of great tasting products we provide 3-5 to be exact depending on your customized program and 1 “U Meal”. What’s a “U Meal”? A “U Meal” is a meal you shop, prepare and cook for yourself; within the parameters Better U provides. The rest of the day is filled with various great tasting products. A Typical day on the program would look like 4 Better Products: breakfast, AM snack, lunch, PM snack, and your “U” meal. Your program day and meal plans are individually tailored by your personal coach. This includes the number of products you have through out the day and when and where to place your “U” meal based on your lifestyle. Most clients eat 5 small meals every 3 hours to work on portion control and help with speeding up the metabolism.
This program sounds amazing and exactly what I need, can you tell me what it costs to get started?

Do I have to count calories on the Better U Today program?
Better U Today was created on the KISS method “Keep it simple stupid” this means no counting calories because we are not a calorie restricted program. No adding points, 90% of our products only need hot or cold water to prepare this means no meal prepping and no searching for a fridge or microwave. Best yet, you get to eat 5 times a day, still enjoy a wide verity of veggies and unlimited greens. You will never be hungry on this program and we will carry all the heavy lifting for you, all you have to do is follow our simple daily guide laid out by one of our expert coaches and watch the pounds melt away.
How is the Better U Today program different than say the Keto and Paleo diets?
Let me first start by stating that we are not a keto or paleo diet nor do we claim to be however it is hard to define the difference between the two if you are only considering or trying to define what ketosis really means. So, what is ketosis you ask? Ketosis is a metabolic state in which some of the body’s energy supply comes from ketone bodies in the blood, in contrast to a state of glycolysis in which blood glucose provides energy. Generally, ketosis occurs when the body is metabolizing fat at a high rate and converting fatty acids into ketones. Ketones is something that we all produce naturally in our blood stream that provide our body with a natural energy source. When you lower the amount of carbohydrates and sugars in your diet your body will naturally produce more of these ketones. There in case, all three can be considered a ketogenic diet. A keto diet is consistent of extreme high amounts of fat, protein and very little carbs. The paleo diet consists of the foods that humans began eating after the Neolithic Revolution, most of the food eaten on a paleo diet include Vegetables, fruits, nuts, roots, and meat. At Better U today we have on an integrative approach to weight loss which focuses on portion control and managing carbohydrates, our program has adequate protein and fats and minimal amounts of carbohydrates. Each of our great tasting products has 15g of protein to maintain your muscle and metabolism. We educate you, hold you accountable, help you troubleshoot obstacles and makes sure that you see results each and every week, and equip you with the knowledge to keep it off for life.
I do not enjoy exercising; can you tell me the requirements around exercise and the Better U Today program?

At the easiest beginner level, and on the extra-lazy days, you simply follow the Better U program laid out by your expert health coach and watch the weight melt away.

I know first hand about yo-yo dieting and fad diets that promise you Sex in the City, Manolo Blahnik ready to strut you stuff in a matter of weeks only to deliver you a frustrated, end of the rope feeling that leads to another weekend of binge watching project runway with a tub of your favorite Ben
I see that I would be provided food on this program, can you tell me about the nutritional food products?

Losing weight and getting to my ideal body would be awesome, but once the program is over, am I on my own to maintain the weight loss?
There are “exact” secrets, so to speak, to successful long-term weight loss for a lifetime. The reason I say secrets is because 75% of Americans are overweight and or obese. Coaching and support are essential for the average person to successfully slim down into their ideal/healthy weight and then maintain that weight loss-for a lifetime. To keep lost weight off, Better U Today helps you understand your body composition and provides you all the tools along your journey to have a full bag of tricks once your ideal/healthy weight is achieved. At the completion of your weight loss program you will be provided with maintenance weigh-ins for as long as you desire and at no charge.

The successful client who embraces their personal decision to change their mind is at an extremely high probability to be successful and to find their process of slimming down fun, exciting and certain.

Dear Mr. 38, Better U Today is the perfect program for you then! We not only help you lose weight and keep muscle in a fast and efficient way, we focus on what is called visceral fat. Visceral fat is stored in and around your organs and leads to that protruding belly not only is it stored in your belly, it carries around all of your internal health problems.

These are just to name a few. Not to worry, visceral fat is completely treatable! So how do we get rid of this hormone producing fat? The good news is that you burn this fat the same way as you do any other fat, by consuming less calories than you burn, being mindful of blood sugar and insulin levels and getting regular exercise. At Better U Today we help you control your portions, carbohydrates, and calories with our great tasting products and expert health coaches that guide you every step of the way to help you break though barriers and hold you accountable. Now is the perfect time to come in and reverse your belly fat into belly fat.

I have Type 2 Diabetes, is your program designed with my health condition in mind?
A healthy diet is the key factor to prevention of pre-diabetes and diabetes but recently, individualized care rather than a “one size fits all” approach has been steadily adapted. According to The Centers for Disease Control, in 2016, more than 29 million Americans, or approximately 9% of the population, had diabetes. Of the more than 29 million, 21 million were diagnosed, and 8 million were undiagnosed. Another 86 million American adults have pre-diabetes, the precursor to type 2 diabetes. Shocking, isn’t it? That number is only going way up as more of our population becomes overweight and obese. Almost 90% of people living with type 2 diabetes are overweight or have obesity so it’s pretty clear that the key to reducing pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes is through weight control including diet, nutrition, and exercise. At Better U Today we realize no one loses weight in a straight line and we take all health and lifestyle situations into consideration. Our weight loss program is based on the obesity and clinical science foundation of weight loss and our goal is to help our clients fight this trend.
