Healthy Lifestyle

With the ActiLean program you will have a total of five shakes and/or meal replacement bars and one healthy “regular” meal, along with a snack (or two) daily. After the first two weeks, you will choose your meals from a varied menu. Our plan is designed to achieve maximum satiety (“fullness”) with maximum weight loss with a total intake of about 1200 calories daily.

Some may be concerned that they will not get enough to eat on a weight loss program.

From clinical testing in a medical setting, actual patients felt fuller the longer they stayed on ActiLean. NO OTHER NON-MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS TREATMENT HAS SHOWN THIS IN CLINICAL STUDIES!

ActiLean Fasttrak, our integrated lifestyle program, provides the tools and techniques you need to achieve lasting weight loss by shedding the beliefs and habits that have held you back. Similar programs cost hundreds of dollars when provided in medical weight management clinics. We are committed to your success so we provide the Fasttrak lifestyle program free to all of our clients on the ActiLean program.

This program is designed by physicians, psychologists, and dieticians who are experts in the fields of weight management, behavioral change, and eating disorders.

As with any weight management program, individuals in general and anybody with known medical problems should advise their personal physician or healthcare professional prior to starting the ActiLean program. WE DO NOT OFFER ANY MEDICAL RECOMMENDATIONS OR TREATMENT AND NOTHING IN THIS SITE SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS SUCH; ONLY YOUR PERSONAL HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL CAN OFFER YOU MEDICAL ADVICE AND TREATMENT.
