Our easy-to-follow guide will take you through the five steps we recommend you follow to help you attain a leaner, healthier body.

Is achieving and maintaining a healthy weight an ongoing battle for you? Rest assured; you’re not alone.

Your diet and lifestyle can either fight for you or against you when it comes to getting your weight under control. A typical Western diet and lifestyle can wreak havoc on your weight, but at Garden of Life, we’ll help you blast through those weight management barriers so that your body will be primed to win the weight war and to maintain a healthy weight.

Let’s Get Started

Step 1

The First 12 Days Cleanse & Detoxify with Wild Rose Herbal D-Tox

What to Do:

The first 12 days of your healthy weight journey begins by ridding the body of toxins with easy-to-use, Wild Rose Herbal D-Tox. This four-part, whole-body herbal cleanse program comes complete with a handy booklet that includes an easy-to-follow, satisfying recommended diet while cleansing.

What is the Wild Rose Herbal D-Tox

Keeping the body’s detoxification organs in tip-top shape is essential for health and a healthy weight. Wild Rose Herbal D-Tox helps detoxify the liver, colon, kidneys, lymphatic system—the most crucial areas to detoxify—as well as in muscle tissue and the bloodstream. It contains only organic and wild-crafted herbal ingredients to rid your body of toxins and to boost your body’s natural detoxification system, which is a necessary part of long-term weight management and a healthy metabolism.

Step 2

Begin the 5-Day Jump-Start Plan with RAW Fit

What to Do:

For the next five days, we recommend you “Jump-Start” your weight loss by eating healthy whole food, balanced meals each day, two of which consist of RAW Fit.

What is RAW Fit?

RAW Fit is a USDA Certified Organic, RAW, plant-based, vegan, high-protein powder that makes it easy to increase your protein intake—an important part of weight loss, especially fat loss. Studies indicate that getting adequate protein helps tremendously with weight management, including burning fat while retaining muscle.

In fact, protein boosts the rate at which your body repairs and builds new muscle after a workout. And the more muscle you have, the more calories your body burns—even while at rest—resulting in weight loss, including fat loss, not muscle loss.

In short, RAW Fit makes it easy to get the clean and healthy protein you need in the amounts your body needs for proper weight management with 28 grams of USDA Certified Organic plant-based protein from 13 sprouted seeds and grains—all sustainably farmed without toxic residue.

Step 3

Get on a Balanced Diet Plan with Raw Fit

What to Do

Once you’ve completed the five-day, Jump-Start Plan, we recommend that you start to eat a little more food. Once again, be sure to focus on eating real foods, ideally organic whole foods—avoiding highly processed and packaged foods that are high in sugar, salt and artificial ingredients. One serving of RAW Fit for breakfast will boost your metabolism and help balance your blood sugar to get you on the right track for your day. During the rest of the day, eat regularly—there are no set rules—however, you should eat at least three meals spread throughout the day. Be sure to maintain portion control!

When Deborah and Stephen Protheroe both celebrated their 49th birthdays, they decided to make major diet and lifestyle changes before hitting the big 5-0. Friends from the couple’s church recommended Garden of Life products, so they starting using RAW FitTM in smoothies every morning. Both of them agreed the RAW Fit smoothies tasted great and helped them feel full throughout the day.

In addition to the RAW Fit smoothies, the Protheroes eliminated refined sugar and processed foods from their diets and concentrated on eating gluten-free as much as possible. When the pounds started to come off, they replaced two meals per day with RAW Fit smoothies and had one nutritionally balanced meal per day. In just five months, both were astounded by the results. Most importantly, they are continuing to use RAW Fit as well as Perfect Food RAW so they add more greens to their diet.

Step 4

Boost Your Metabolism with Fucothin Green

What to Do:

Now that you are beyond the cleanse and Jump-Start phases, and you are now using RAW Fit and following a healthy meal plan, it’s time to rev up your metabolism even further by adding Fucothin Green. Taking one capsule three times daily with food and at least 8 ounces of water may help maximize your weight management goals.

What is Fucothin Green?

Fucothin Green contains two clinically studied ingredients, Xanthigen, a proprietary blend of fucoxanthin and pomegranate seed oil, and Svetol, a green coffee bean extract—packing a one-two punch to help boost your metabolism while keeping healthy blood sugar levels. Interestingly, fücoTHIN GREEN is the only supplement that contains both of these ingredients together and in the same amounts used in those clinical studies. Additionally, Fucothin Green is RAW, Non-GMO Project Verified, vegan, soy free, dairy free and gluten free.

Get Your Move On!

There’s no way around this one. If you want to achieve a healthier, leaner body, then you’ve got to get moving!

Now, your current level of activity will determine what you need to do in order to get your body working harder so you’re burning more calories. If you’ve been sedentary, then start out with some power walking—not a leisurely stroll—three-to-four times per week. If you’re already walking, step it up to a light jog or increase the number of days or time you’re spending on your walks. If you’re currently using the elliptical trainer for 30 minutes, increase the time to 40 minutes or try different levels of difficulty. The key to remember is—change. Change what you’re currently doing in order to effect a change in your body.

And don’t forget about weight training. It is extremely important to build and maintain muscle before, during and after any weight management program. The more muscle on your body, the more calories it burns—even at rest. Hitting the gym or using at-home weights or bands at least three times per week—if not more—is recommended.
