The Health and Weight Loss Program for People Who Want a Lifestyle and Not Another Diet!


You don't have to take supplements, eat pre-packaged food or avoid carbs to lose weight. We show you how to improve health and lose weight eating foods you enjoy in the right combinations!


We determine your carb threshold score, which identifies if you have insulin resistance, and if your body primarily burns fat or carbs for fuel. Our program shows you how to best burn fat for fuel!

Be coached by nutritionist, health, and weight loss coach, Robert Ferguson.


Our "food as medicine" methodology is scientifically validated and clinically proven to help you lose weight, lower blood sugar, get off medications, and improve overall health without feeling like you are on a diet.


When it comes to both losing weight and improving overall health, we believe your success begins in your gut. Our program teaches you the ins and outs of optimizing your gut health.

Improve and Reverse the Following:

Our methodology is based on three very well-researched principles:
  • Everything you eat affects your insulin levels.
  • Your body burns fat and more calories when insulin levels aren't elevated throughout the day.
  • Eating foods in the right combinations helps you optimize glucose and insulin levels,  decrease cravings, burn more calories, and improve overall health.

Question: Why begin with a FREE consultation?
Answer: Before committing to our program, we want you to be well-informed and make sure our programs are a good fit for you and your lifestyle. Even though our programs have helped thousands of people lose weight and improve overall health, we never take a canned approach to working with our clients. Our plans are customized specifically to meet the client’s lifestyle and personal needs.
