Frequently Asked Questions
How long will I have to be on my Life2Change program?
The duration of your Life2Change program depends on a number of factors. For example: your blood profile, age, sex, the amount of weight you would like to lose, etc. The average time our clients take to finish the Life2Change program is about 3 months with an average weight loss of 8 kilos per month, although we have had cases of clients losing up to 15 kilos per month!
Must I exercise while on the Life2Change program?
If you do not exercise on a regular basis now, don't start, especially if you are obese! The joints and muscles of people who are obese are often not able to cope with daily exercise. There will come a time during the Life2Change program where we will advise that you engage in some forms of exercise. If you already partake in regular exercise we recommend that you continue, but again in moderation. Our main advice is to always listen to your body!

The blood tests allow an analysis of certain aspects of your system which, together with your lifestyle requirements, medical history and profile will determine the requirements to get your body back in balance. This approach therefore designs a unique food program that will result in weight-loss and other major health and wellbeing benefits.
What is the Detox program?
The Life2Change program takes off with detoxing the body and boosting its metabolism. Detoxing the body is a very important part of bringing it back to a balanced state. Although your body will instantly welcome the types of food that come with the Life2Change program it is important to establish the right mind set for the main food program of phase two. This is exactly what phase one does. It takes one week to finish.
What is the Customised program?
This is the main part of the Life2Change program. Phase two introduces a specifically designed food program, generated with the info your own body has provided us with. During this phase you will see and feel many positive changes. You will feel better, sleep better and regain a level of energy you didn't think could be possible. Phase two also includes highly-effective personal training that teaches you to deal with emotional eating and stress. This causes weight loss to remain steady over the duration of the entire phase while cravings, anxiety and stress will greatly be reduced. Also, any types of heartburns you may suffer from will cease within a few days. Previous client results showed significant improvement and even the resolving of diabetes type two, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and the inconvenience of a spastic colon. Due to the stimulation of the human growth hormone the Life2Change program prevents the skin from hanging, which is often a problem with other diets and surgery. The duration of this phase depends on the sex of the client (males often lose weight faster) and of course on how much weight you want to lose. No matter how obese or overweight you are, there is literally no limit with the Life2Change program.
What is the Stabilisation program?
Phase three is probably the most important phase of them all. Should you stop right now, the empty fat cells will just fill themselves again and leave you in a situation you do not want to be in. Quitting a diet without stabilizing the body is exactly why you see so many people who managed to lose a lot of weight go back to the same situation or even worse. Phase three of the Life2Change program re-introduces types of food that weren't a part of the program and teaches the body to deal with everyday eating. This Phase of the Life2Change program takes between 2-4 weeks, depending on the profile of the client.
