FAQs

WHAT IS THE FORMAT OF BEST BODY?

Video lessons, an easy-to-use meal planning tool, weekly group coaching calls via Zoom, and our supportive private Facebook group. Best Body is a (very!) mobile friendly website.

WHEN DOES THE PROGRAM START AND FINISH?

It is completely self-paced – you decide when you start and when you finish.

WHO IS THIS PROGRAM FOR?

This program is for those over 18 years of age. If you have a chronic diseases (such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer), or are pregnant or breastfeeding, consult with your doctor before joining the program, as these are not my areas of expertise. This program will not work if you follow a vegan diet – but vegetarian is absolutely fine!

As always, please seek approval from your primary care physician before starting any nutrition program.

This program is also NOT for: high school students, professional athletes, those who have an eating disorder or are in recent recovery, and those who want to become underweight or get to an unhealthy (too-low) weight.

WHAT IF I’M IN MY 40S, 50S, OR 60S? WILL THIS PROGRAM WORK FOR ME?

Yes! You will be in good company.

DO I NEED TO BE ABLE TO COOK FOR MYSELF?

It is absolutely easier to manage your weight when you have more control over what you’re eating. It’s not necessary, but much easier if you’re able to prepare your own food.

DO I HAVE TO TRACK CALORIES?

I do generally recommend tracking, but tracking is NOT forever! It’s a very useful tool to help see, objectively, which foods keep you fullest for longest. It’s also a useful tool for accountability, especially since we won’t be working together one-on-one! That being said, tracking calories is not required.

DO I HAVE TO EXERCISE?

Generally, no! Sometimes when we get to weight loss plateaus, exercise can be helpful.

DO I HAVE TO BUY EXPENSIVE FOOD, PROTEIN SHAKES, OR SUPPLEMENTS?

No no no! One note: It is a national recommendation that if you’re consuming less than 1600 calories consistently that you take a multivitamin.

DO THE MEALS AND SNACKS TAKE A LONG TIME TO PREPARE?

NO! Less than 5 minutes for many, and less than 15 minutes for nearly the rest. A select few are 30 minutes, but you can opt out of those if you like!

I FEEL LIKE I ALREADY SPEND $ ON FOOD, WHY SHOULD I PAY FOR THIS?

1. Accountability; 2. Ease of preparing awesome, filling meals; 3. You will spend much LESS money on food now that you can prepare foods that keep you full & minimize food waste! 4. What is it worth to you, to get to your goal weight easily, and NEVER worry about it again? I bet that would be priceless!

AM I GOING TO HAVE TO SPEND HOURS IN THE KITCHEN?

NO! Guys. I’m seriously the laziest cook ever.

ARE THE RECIPES FOR 1 PERSON?

Meal plans are for 1 person – but you can increase portions of any meal or snack to serve up to 5 people within the meal planning tool, which also automatically adjusts the grocery list.

DO I GET ONE-ON-ONE CONTACT WITH YOU, RACHEL?

We have weekly group coaching calls and our private Facebook group, where I answer answer your questions. In addition, you can sign up for 1:1 virtual (Zoom) sessions with me for $200 at any time.

CAN I CANCEL ANYTIME?

Yes! You can cancel your membership yourself at any time.

ARE THERE ANY REFUNDS?

No, there are no refunds.
