HOW DOWNSIZE ME WORKS & WHY
Anyone can give you a diet plan for weight loss, but that diet isn’t a long term solution. Why?
1. Because you are as unique on the inside as you are on the outside, so an ‘out-of-the-box’ plan will give you mixed results, at best.
2. Your mind dictates your actions and habits. Long term success means you can set clear boundaries, get rid of limiting beliefs and be self-confident and clear about your decisions.
Downsize Me works because we use a science-based approach to:
1. Balance the hormones that disrupt metabolism (most ‘diets’ don’t do this)
2. Show you how to eat for your unique body type, and
3. Help you create a powerful mindset and get organised so that you can develop a powerful, confident and focused mindset.
Our program is based on principles of metabolic nutrition, coaching psychology, positive psychology, mindfulness, Ayurveda, & nutritional biochemistry.
STRUCTURE, SUPPORT & ACCOUNTABILITY
Over 650 people have completed our program, and every one of those has lost weight.
It’s very clear that, while our eating plan is 100% effective, we know it’s actually our focus on positive psychology, habit change, structure, support & accountability that is essential for long term change. These are the core elements of our coaching program.
Most importantly, our qualified coaches won’t tell you what to do…but they will empower you to take charge.
We realise we can’t tell you what to do, because you won’t do it. What we can do, is use special coaching techniques to get you taking responsibility for change – on your terms, in your time frame.
This means you learn to tap into what YOU want and why, so you can maintain your new habits on your own. Even so, we’ll be there all the while to give you constant support, so you can avoid lapsing into old habits.

I’ve failed before – how will this program will help me lose weight and keep it off for the long term?
Of course, our science-based eating plan targets the dangerous visceral fat around your liver, so you quickly see a reduction in your waist circumference in the first week, and beyond.

That’s why we help you work on your mindset (motivation and emotions) and structure (planning and scheduling), so that you can
- Control your cravings
- Learn to say no
- Set boundaries
- Make lasting improvements to bad habits

By tuning up your body first, to boost energy and eliminate those annoying cravings, we have removed a big part of the problem.
By learning to tune out all those environmental and emotional triggers, you can take control of your impulses to eat.
By tuning in to your body’s natural signals, you can easily learn to eat in a way that gives you energy, vitality and youthfulness, mental focus and a fantastic physique.
I find low-carb programs to be very restrictive – how is this different?
It’s so true, and the fact is, your body actually needs carbohydrates for brain function and to fuel your muscles.
There are three ways that the Downsize Me program is different:
- You’ll use our short term eating plan to aggressively targets visceral (deep belly) fat, improves liver function, and balances the hormones that regulate fat storage. This is the #1 key to fuelling your metabolic fire.
- In weeks 7 and 8, you’ll learn to eat without guilt, and develop your own realistic, sustainable long term personal eating blueprint that is unique to your body.
- You will master the motivational, emotional and organisational challenges for healthy eating, so that you embed your new habits, fit them into each week and keep doing them for life. After all, you are the sum of your habits.
I don’t like to cook that much, how easy are the meals to prepare?
Our eating plan was designed to be flexible, so it suits everyone from the ‘busy, I hate cooking’ person to the full-blown foodie.
Downsize Me’s program-specific recipe book and meal plan gives you a range of simple recipes that use fresh vegetables, lean meats and fruits, nuts and seeds. Many people say how surprisingly simple, quick and easy – and tasty – the recipes are.
Of course, if you prefer to ‘do it your way’ and cook your own meals, you can use our list of allowable foods and our basic meal guidelines, and away you go.
Of course, you can follow our meal plan to the letter, or change the meals around to suit your planning and lifestyle.
No matter how you do it, every meal will balance out your blood sugar, avoid cravings and get your body into fat burning mode.
Do I have to exercise during the program?
Not at all. We have had wheelchair-bound clients lose over 8kg on our program, so we know that food is at least 80% of the weight loss equation.
It’s important to focus on eating, planning and emotions first.
But of course, exercise helps you in many ways, so we do recommend walking or other activities if you are able.
Will the Downsize Me program work if I have a health condition?
Yes, and in fact, it’s actually designed to restore healthy insulin, leptin and cortisol levels, and lower blood pressure.
These are all key causes of today’s major health conditions including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and underactive thyroid.
In fact, some of our clients with chronic health issues have reported these results:
- Doctors taking them off their blood pressure medication
