I’m worried I can’t afford a program.
Wouldn’t it be nice to not waste another dime on programs that only have a bandaid approach with quick weight loss and instead learn how to adopt a healthy lifestyle for good? Think of the time, effort and long-term cost savings you’ll gain from a program that helps you build the mental fitness to sustain a lifetime of health. There’s an estimated $3 in healthcare savings for every dollar you spend on your health. With nearly 60 preventable diseases connected to obesity, learning how to permanently adopt a healthy lifestyle just makes long-term, financial sense.
I’ve failed at so many diets. How do I make a healthy lifestyle stick?
First, know this, you did NOT fail. Your brain was actually wired to protect you and to keep you safe. When we are faced with intense stress, our brains go back to what it knows will make us feel safe. Because of how many of us were raised, that lends to a reliance on sugar, refined carbs, and alcohol to self-soothe. But you can create new safety mechanisms by creating new neural pathways in the brain. Hence, Mind Zoning®.
What dietary plan do you recommend? Paleo? Vegan? Raw?
We recommend a whole foods’ diet, meaning a reduction of processed, packaged foods that are filled with sugar, addictive and preservatives. We focus on plants, high-quality protein sources, and healthy fats. Our 30 Days to Thriving provides guidelines similar to a paleo-style diet (void of all sugars, refined carbs and alcohol) to help you first break addictions, then slowly reintroduce foods one at a time so you know what works for you and your lifestyle.

I want to lose weight fast. Will you show me how?
Fitlandia is the anti-dieting site. It’s quick weight-loss techniques that throw the body out of whack and into a metabolic nightmare. Therefore, we encourage our members to lose no more than 1 lb. per week. Remember, we’re here to help you build a lifestyle – something you can sustain so you never diet again.
What can I do to increase my chances of success?
There are TWO, simple yet powerful factors that determine your ability to be successful in making a lifestyle change:
- Believe you are capable of changing.
- Have the deep desire to change.
Those two ingredients are all you need to be successful…well and a little support from your fellow Fitlandians!
