Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS A WEIGHT LOSS TEAM?

A Weight Loss Team is a group of four to eight people who all want to lose weight. You will interact daily with your Team through your Team Message Board and by sending private messages to your Teammates. You will also connect with your Teammates by using your Team Chat Room. You will be accountable to share your food and exercise log with your Team each day. You will also be responsible for writing one message of support each day.

When you join a Weight Loss Team you will get to create your own personal Profile Page. Your Profile Page will help you track your weight loss goals, daily food and exercise logs, weight loss, journal entries and more. Your Team will compete against another Team to determine which will achieve the highest percentage of weight loss during each 28-day Challenge.

WHY SHOULD I JOIN A WEIGHT LOSS TEAM?

Losing weight can be a very difficult process, especially if you attempt to do it alone. When you become a part of a Weight Loss Team you receive the daily support and motivation you'll need to help you make good choices everyday. By joining a Weight Loss Team you are given the four key components of successful weight loss:

  • Easy to Follow Program
  • Daily Accountability
  • Support, 24/7
  • Friendly Competition
I ALREADY BELONG TO ANOTHER WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM.
CAN I STILL BE ON A TEAM?

Absolutely! You may already belong to a weight loss program that is working for you. Add into your current program daily accountability, support, fun, and a competitive Team approach and you'll be destined for long-term success!

Our food log is flexible, so you can track your food intake however you choose. Not counting calories? No problem. Just want to keep a list of your meals eaten? Great! Want to use another numeric method of calculating your food intake? You can. It's your Food Log, so it's your choice.

I HAVE FAILED MANY DIETS IN THE PAST.
HOW WILL THIS BE ANY DIFFERENT?

We are not a diet program. Our approach is completely revolutionary. We understand that losing weight is more than counting calories and tracking exercise. Losing weight is mainly a mental game. We have proven that daily accountability, support, and encouragement is the foundation needed to lose weight and keep it off. With the weekly motivation to "out lose" your rival Team you will discover how successful you can be!

MY FRIEND AND I WANT TO JOIN TOGETHER.
CAN WE BE ON THE SAME TEAM?

Yes! If you would like to be placed on a Weight Loss Team with a friend, simply select one person to "Create a New Team." Once that person has created a new Team they can send the TeamCode to anyone they wish to join their Team (maximum 8 people). At the start of the competition, any remaining openings in the newly created Team will be filled with waiting so each Team contains a minimum of four players.

Absolutely nothing!

CAN I CHANGE TO A DIFFERENT TEAM WHEN I WANT TO?

You may join a new Weight Loss Team at the start of each new Challenge if you desire. You may not, however, change Teams mid-challenge. You must stay with your current Teammates until the 28-day Challenge has been completed.

DO I HAVE TO BUY ANY SPECIAL MEALS, PILLS, DRINKS, OR BOOKS?

Absolutely not! Our weight loss program is based solely on the tried and true method of burning more calories than you consume daily. You may truly eat anything you desire and still lose weight, so long as you stay within your daily calories.

HOW WILL I LOSE WEIGHT?

You will lose weight when you burn more energy, or calories, than you consume each day. You will keep track of your intake to be sure you are not exceeding your daily calories needed to achieve weight loss. It sounds simple, doesn't it?

However, the tough part is keeping your motivation alive day after day, staying strong and resisting temptation to overeat many times each day. These things will all become easier when you have a Weight Loss Team to support you each day and use your natural competitive spirit to reinforce your desire to live a healthy lifestyle.

WILL MY PRIVACY BE PROTECTED ON THIS SITE?
