Release is designed to be sustainable and fit into your life so you can see results long term, which is why the program is a full year. You’ll kick off Release with a 30 minute video coach visit with your Release Coach, where you’ll go through the onboarding process. During your Release Year, you’ll be meeting with your accountability coach once per week, and you’ll be spending time completing lessons as part of the Release curriculum to support you throughout your journey. Throughout your year with us, you’ll be in control of when you complete your lessons and when  coaching appointments take place.

Your initial coaching appointment with your Release Coach will take place via video and last 30 minutes. During this appointment, you will review your health history and goals, and make recommendations for your plan. 

Release is a Whole Foods, nutrition based metabolic reset. Here are just a few of the ways Release is different than other weight loss programs.

Our approach is “health first.”

Research shows that programs with a “weight loss” approach are willing to do anything to achieve that weight loss. Medications, pre-packaged foods, pills, and low calorie restrictive diets are a “short term” approach.  Release is focused on lifestyle intervention as the most effective weight approach to sustained weight loss. Unlike other programs, Release’s approach is fully holistic, setting you up for long term success.  In fact, Release helps members achieve 15% average weight loss, sustained for two years.

Release is flexible and sustainable

On Release there are no sweeping restrictions or calorie counting. Together with your coach, you’ll make small, gradual lifestyle changes that ladder up to big results that you can sustain long term. In fact 9 out of 10 Release members agree that the lifestyle changes in the program were sustainable.
