*Be sure to read the description of each program. Some are not suitable for newly breastfeeding mothers or those training for endurance events. Each description clearly states what is included in each PDF download.
Which program do you recommend for a breastfeeding mother?
If you just had a baby our “Easy Does It” plan is perfect for you. Be sure to consult with your physician first, but you can start within two weeks after giving birth. The “Ten Week Transformation” is the next step. Be sure to add bigger portions and increase your feeding frequency if necessary. The Power 25 is a good challenge when breastfeeding is well established.
I can’t decide which program is best for me.
Be sure to carefully read each program description. If you have additional questions, please email us.
I’ve already completed one or more of your programs, what should I do next?

Our “7 Day Guide”, “Active Nutrition Guide”, & “Respect Your Food” handout are great – every day guides to live a real & practical healthy lifestyle.
Can I do my own workout routine in addition to the workouts you provide?
No. If you would like to swap out your own cardio or weight routine for a similar workout, go for it. But, don’t do it too frequently. Make sure to keep them as similar as possible as the workouts were specifically designed. Do not do additional workouts, especially on the “21 Day Challenge”. Your body will need to adapt with the meal plan.
Can I train for a half marathon, full marathon, or triathlon while doing the “21 Day Pure Challenge”?
No. Train for you event. Then, you can change things up by completing the challenge.
I don’t have a gym membership; can I still do the workouts?
Every workout is easily adaptable for either the gym or home.
Do I need special equipment?
Most of the workouts you may need a set of dumbbells or a stability ball. These are cheap and easy to purchase at Walmart. Each program will list equipment that is needed.
I’m injured; can I still do the workouts?
Follow the advice of your doctor first. We are not responsible for injuries assumed while following our programs as we promote you listening to your body and working out smart. Start with our “Easy Does It” plan. Once you get stronger, you can move on to another program.

I don’t like avocados. What can I eat instead?
By far, this is our most frequently asked question. There is no comparison to the avocado. It has the nutrition of a vegetable, the carbohydrate of a fruit, and is full of healthy fat. Give yourself time to decide if you truly don’t like it. Otherwise, you can swap it for additional vegetables and nuts.
What does EVOO mean? Extra Virgin Olive Oil (our second most FAQ)
I don’t like herbal tea. What else can I have? Water.
I don’t like something on the meal plan?
If you don’t have an ingredient listed or don’t like a certain food, you can swap like food for like food. For example, protein for protein (i.e. chicken for fish, broccoli for cauliflower, etc.)
How much should I eat?
Portion sizes and amounts are not listed on many of the meal plans because these plans can be used for both genders and those with varying goals. Check out our Portion Size Guide to know how much to eat.
Is there a shopping list?
Some of our plans have shopping lists and some do not. Be sure to read the program description. Most plans have the food listed and are easily converted into a list to take shopping with you.
