The first phase is what we call the investigative and information collecting phase.
Our medical team will carry out assessments and diagnostic testing to clarify the condition of your current health.
At this point, you will have a clinic consultation with one of our healthcare advisors or one of our medical team can visit you in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
We put these steps in place as we feel it is essential to know what your starting position is. Makes sense doesn't it?
Your Kickstarter lifestyle coach will introduce you to the tools you will use on this journey. This will enable you to check in on your activity levels, diet and emotional wellbeing and log these using our app or online through our client portal.
Together with your Kickstarter lifestyle coach, you will plan ways of increasing your activity levels and work out your nutrition programme whilst on the Kickstarter plan.
Phase001 on the Kickstarter Plan typically takes around 1 to 3 weeks to complete before you move on to Phase002 of the Kickstarter plan.
"Plans are of little importance, but planning is essential.”

the weight loss
We make addressing your hunger and cravings a two-fold process. You will have been prescribed the Kickstarter Plan jab, your appetite and cravings will have reduced. Weight loss will begin.
Now that you are not in a constant battle with hunger and cravings it is at this stage you will begin weekly coaching sessions with your Kickstarter lifestyle coach. With the support of your lifestyle coach, you will find ways and behavioural techniques of managing stress, cravings and hunger that work for you.
You will also become aware of triggers that may cause you to overeat. The length this phase lasts is dependent on how much weight you have to lose. We usually say around one month for fifteen pounds of weight loss.
Your Kickstarter lifestyle coach will offer ongoing monitoring and support available when you need it. With ongoing daily check-ins, group mindfulness sessions and weekly coaching sessions you will feel supported on your journey.
This close monitoring also helps ensure that the Kickstarter Jab medication you are taking is taken safely and is not having any adverse effects on your health or wellbeing.

You will have lost the majority of your weight by the time you reach phase003. It will be the last hurdle here, that final push. This phase typically lasts for 1 month.
You will gradually stop using your medication, and you will have prepared for this in phase002.
Now its time to put behavioural techniques into practice and find out what really works for you. Your lifestyle coach is still beside you offering help and support.
Sometimes you will succeed, and then there will be days that you feel you have failed. We know success doesn't come in a linear line to perfection.
It's during this phase we are there to catch you when you aren't having such great days and to help you find a way of managing in preparation for when we are not there.
You will have succeeded at achieving your weight loss goal, become aware of habits that have hindered you and created new positive changes in your life. With new found confidence and enthusiasm, you are now unstoppable.
Having invested so much time on your weight loss journey, it may feel a little strange - empty even when goals are reached and we are gone.
Don't worry - we even prepare you for this! How many of us have reached our goal only to be back to square one a few years later? We don't want you to be that person ..... and we are sure you don't want to be either!
