Full Meal Replacement Path

In this pathway, participants will consume 5 meal replacements per day for 12 weeks that meet 100% of their nutritional needs while being educated on how to transition to a Mediterranean or whole-food, plant-predominent lifestyle.

Adaptive Meal Replacement Path

In this pathway, participants will consume 4 meal replacements plus one healthy (Mediterranean or whole-food, plant-based) meal per day for 12 weeks.

Registered Dietitian Guided Path

This pathway does not include meal replacements. Rather, participants work closely with our Wellness Registered Dietitian (RD) to develop a longterm plan for a healthier diet and lifestyle that best fits their needs.
