Frequently Asked Questions
All of the questions the turtle could think of
Turtles have been depicted as carrying the weight of the world on their backs. Each one of us can feel this burden ourselves in our daily lives. We are truly more similar than we appear.
There is an intimate relationship between the neurological and psychological processes of the mind. The reptilian portion of our brain provokes stubborn, irresistible urges against our conscious wishes, such as compulsive eating.
Emotions which drive our decisions, behavior and hunger, often unconscious, arise from within our limbic system, the middle ground and the source of our struggle. When our decisions are conscious with positive thoughts, we make better choices that feel good. These choices are the result of the balance between the reptilian region and our neocortex.
Within the human brain, the neocortex with its advanced thought, flexibility and consciousness is responsible for our higher thinking. Coaches harness our inner reptile and transform us into healthy turtles.
Slow and steady wins the race. For those wanting to go fast like a bunny, we have TURBO TURTLE mode. It’s still steady and still permanent, but with a little bit of fire under that rabbit tail.
Being a turtle is about much more than weight loss; it’s about total physical and spiritual transformation. Love more than ever before how you look and how you feel, so much that you shout it to the world. Take that ‘after’ selfie in the mirror, knowing that this new and improved you is here to stay from now on.
There is no contract. You also have a 14-Day free trial because we are so confident our program can help you. We recommend that you make a 91-day commitment comprised of the initial 3 months in order to watch the program work for you. You pay month-to-month, 30 days at a time. You may stop at any time and the amount of time to get through the 3 phases depends on how fast or slow you choose to go.
You have unlimited access Monday through Friday from 9AM to 7PM and from 11AM to 7PM Saturdays and Sundays, via text message (users must reside within the 48 contiguous states). Any activity you send your coaches overnight and on holidays is reviewed the following morning. With as much involvement as you choose, your coaches will provide you with your desired level of attention all day for you to achieve and maintain your goals. We tailor your program so that it is custom-made to meet your specific needs as they change over time.
We go according to your pace. Slow and steady wins the race. Want to be in Turbo Turtle Mode? Ok! Some people succeed in 6 weeks or less, others in 6 months or more. How long it takes is up to you.
You must be between 18 and 69 years of age, living in any of the 48 contiguous states. (Stay tuned for future pediatric and geriatric divisions as well as availability in other time zones.) Whether you want to lose 5 pounds, 50 pounds or more, this program will get you there and help you stay in your healthy range from now on. In general, and especially if you are pregnant or have any medical condition, you MUST consult with your physician in order to be clear of what diet and exercise changes are appropriate for you while utilizing our coaching service.
$30 per month. Only a $1 a day for a better you. We think you are worth it! In fact, for a limited time we are offering everyone a 14-day free trial offer. No excuses now not to try it and see some results.

Because you are not required to submit a form, have your physician clear you for any change in your diet and exercise routine. If you have any health concerns, a medical condition or if you are pregnant, be sure to meet with your physician before signing up.
We encourage you to eliminate all trans fats. Aside from these, feel free to eat anything you want. All you need to do is be reasonable with your portions and balance out bad options with good ones in the mix. While we may make recommendations from time to time, we do not sell, supply or endorse any specific supplements. You decide whether or not to include these as you go.
All you need is a smartphone and a scale. Heart rate monitors, fitness devices, food scales and calorie counters are optional.
Once you’re on board, we follow up with you all day long. As long as you stay connected, we stay in touch. If we don’t hear from you on any given day, you’ll hear from us! You have the option of staying on as a turtle for as long as you want.
