Lose weight and get more energy in ONE WEEK.
THE ULTIMATE 7-DAY KICKSTART
DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?
I'm totally overwhelmed
with work and taking care of my family that I just don't have time to take care of myself.
I grab snacks and junk food
to fill up on the fly because it's quick and easy, and there is "not enough time" to eat healthy.
I feel bloated and tired
and need more energy to enjoy my life.
I've packed on the pounds
and I can't shake the muffin mound!
I'm sick of crappy diet food
and don't want to feel depressed.
I'm stuck on a yoyo diet spiral
and I need to find something that works!
Yeah...I've tried everything to lose weight and failed.
HOW is this different?
I hear you.
There are SO many programs promising "quick wins". Finding answers is EXHAUSTING, and it really feels like, “been there, done that, nothing is going to work!”
But, there is hope!
I've spent the last 30 years trying countless diets, and working with some of the most respected doctors and dietitians in the country to combine the BEST PROVEN STRATEGIES into a SIMPLE SYSTEM that really works!

THE FOOD IS INCREDIBLE
Forget starving yourself on warped carrot sticks, wilted lettuce, and sludgy diet drinks that look and taste like the place where the plants came to die. That is NOT joyful or sustainable. My superpower is putting mind-blowing flavors together so vegetables taste decadent and delicious. So, you will be excited to eat healthy food, and never feel deprived.
YOU WILL NEVER BE HUNGRY
Who likes to go without? (No thanks!) The portion sizes are big to account for all appetites. You will not be hungry. In fact, many people have leftovers for snacks or to share with family and friends!
YOU CONTROL WHAT YOU EAT
YOU get to choose what you eat. Follow the meal plan OR just choose the approved foods and follow the food combining principles based on your budget, lifestyle, and what YOU like to eat.
NO GUILT. HAVE FUN!
We have a “Good, Better, or Best, NOT Perfect” philosophy in the community. There are no "failures". You just show up for yourself every day, and do the best that you can. If you "fall off the wagon", relax. We're striving for progress, not perfection. (What is that anyway?)

I can't believe what happened in just one week!
"I lost 5 pounds in a week, and I didn't have to starve myself. All I did was make the recipes, and follow the meal plan and the daily routine. I have all of Tess's cookbooks so I knew the food would taste incredible. But, gosh, I just couldn't believe the difference the food combining made! Within three days, I didn't feel bloated anymore, and I was sleeping so deeply, and waking up feeling refreshed with more energy than I have had in years. I also learnt a lot about my body and my relationship with food. And, now I have some great healthy practices I can use moving forward to build on my results. Doing this kickstart was a game changer for me."
- Suzie M - Boston
HOW IT WORKS STEP BY STEP:
Use the Strategic System
Evaluate Your Needs
Changing my protein intake made a huge difference!
"Looking at my protein intake was in interesting exercise. I realized I was eating too much protein, and wasn't eating the good protein. I was drinking protein shakes and eating big pieces of animal protein for dinner to fuel my gym sessions. When I ate smaller amounts of protein from a variety of the suggested sources consistently throughout the day I felt stronger, and had more energy. I have battled acid reflux for many years, and that improved as well."

HERE'S WHAT'S ON THE MENU...
"THERE'S NOT A BAD RECIPE IN THE BUNCH!"
"The food is so ridiculously good that I felt like I was eating at a gourmet restaurant every night. There wasn't a bad recipe in the whole meal plan. My husband jumped on board when he tasted the Chocolate Espresso Smoothie." We did the kick-start together. I lost 4 pounds, and Mike lost 6! But, more importantly, we just feel so fantastic. We beat the bloat, don't feel sluggish anymore, and we really enjoyed cooking meals together that we knew would taste great and make us feel amazing. This was just what we needed."

"Food combining was the missing piece for me!"
"I have been a healthy eater my whole life, and was eating good food. But, I had never tried food combining before. Holy cow! THIS was the missing piece for me. Before doing the kickstart, I was waking up 3 to 4 times every night and I was so tired every day. By day 5 of the kickstart, I was only waking up once to go to the bathroom, and I had so much energy in the morning. I am so excited that I know how to put foods together in a better way now! I can’t believe the difference it makes. I lost 6 pounds, and I feel so much lighter. Thank you!"

Handy Cheat Sheets to Make Things Easy!
"I had tried everything, and this worked!"
"I had literally tried everything to lose weight, and I was very frustrated, and pretty depressed that I couldn’t find something that worked for me. I don’t do well with diets where I have to count calories or figure out portions. I like to cook. But, the recipes in most diet plans don’t taste that great. I gave this a go because I watched Tess on some Facebook lives and she shares good information that made sense to me. But, I was still skeptical. How different could this really be? I am so glad I did this. The food was excellent, I was never hungry, and the only thing I had to think about was adding the protein boosters to my meals. I lost 7 pounds, and it was so easy. I just cannot believe it. I am going to do the 60-day program now. I am so grateful."
- Dawn S - Toronto
I want to help you get healthy!
"I have energy like I'm in my twenties again!"
"I have all of Tess’s cookbooks, and many of her recipes are family favorites. I had read about food combining, probiotics, and soaking foods to improve digestion and gut health in her first book. But, I had never put any of her tips into practice. Well, after following her daily routine for a week, I was shocked at how much better I felt with some simple changes. I lost 5 pounds eating the best food ever, and it was like the food was a magic sleeping pill. The energy piece was the biggest win for me. I am a busy mom of three teenage boys, and this is the most energy I have had since I was in my twenties. It is just so great!"
- Ingrid W - Chicago
OK. LET'S RECAP: WHAT'S IN THE 7-DAY KICKSTART!
You get EVERYTHING you need to get results quickly and easily.
"I like that you can customize the meal plan."
"The best thing about this program is that the recipes are easy, and they taste fantastic! I like that you can customize the meal plan to your needs, and add the kind of protein you want. It made me feel like I had control over what I was eating. I also loved that there were snacks. So, everything was covered, and I wasn’t thinking about what I was missing. The week went by so quickly, and when I stepped on the scale at the end of the week, I was overjoyed to see that I had lost 7 pounds. Wow."

You will need to stick to the daily routine, purchase the recipe ingredients, and cook the recipes (or follow the food guidelines) in order to be successful. If you do not want to try something new and do not want to follow the guidance and routine laid out in the program, the Kickstart is not for you. If you have food allergies to nuts and seeds (particularly almonds or hemp seeds) or avocado, many of the recipes in the program may not be suitable for you.

We want to help you reach your health goals and get real results. So, we have a 30-day money-back guarantee. If the 7-Day Kickstart doesn’t help you in those 30 days, contact us, and we will issue a full refund.
What How much weight will I lose?
Everybody is different. Factors like diet, age, gender, body size, muscle mass, genes, hormones, environment, drugs, and physical activity influence metabolism. Our healthy meal plan, in conjunction with regular exercise is an effective way to help regulate metabolism and lose weight. How much weight you will lose on the kickstart will vary. The average participant loses between 3 and 7 pounds.
Do I have to exercise?
You will get the best results if you move and exercise as much as possible during the program. Develop your exercise protocol based on your level of comfort and ability in consultation with your doctor or healthcare practitioner. We do not provide a formal exercise routine as part of the 7-Day Kickstart.
What kinds of recipes are included?
All of the recipes are plant-based (dairy-free, egg-free), gluten-free, soy-free, and sugar-free. You have the option to supplement the recipes with animal protein from our approved list, and you can mix and match recipes to suit your dietary stripes, flavor preferences, and budget.
What if I can't eat a food?
If you cannot source a particular ingredient, there are substitution suggestions in the recipes. If you don’t like a particular ingredient or recipe, there are “off meal plan” suggestions you can slot into the program. If you have food allergies to nuts and seeds (particularly almonds or hemp seeds) or avocado, many of the recipes on the 7-Day Kickstart may not be suitable for you.
Will I be hungry?
Not likely. This is not a starvation diet, and you do not count calories. The meal plan includes recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus snacks and beverages. The recipe portions are deliberately generous to accommodate even the most voracious appetites. Most participants report having leftovers to use as snacks or to share with family members. Having said that, everybody is different, and should you feel hungry, we have provided delicious snack recipes and a list of recommended snacks.
Will I get enough protein?
Yes. And, you control your protein intake. You will use the SK60® Protein Evaluation to determine your protein needs. The core recipes are high in plant-based protein, and then you supplement the recipes with high quality animal protein from our approved list and/or additional plant protein to reach your protein quota each day.
Can I eat the food with my family?
Absolutely! Many participants do the program with their spouse or partner. And, the recipes are family-friendly, and many dishes are really popular with kids so you can teach them healthy habits, too.
How long will the food prep take?
On average, it takes about 1 hour per day to make the meals and snacks; and about 2 hours on the prep day to get ready for the week. Most recipes take between 15 and 30 minutes to prepare or assemble. You will often be eating leftovers for lunch to make prep easier.
How much will the groceries cost?
Depending on what oils and spices you have in your pantry, the average participant spends about $150 on groceries for the program.
Can I drink coffee and tea?
Yes! Caffeine can aid weight loss and fat burning when consumed at appropriate times for your activity levels and workout schedule. If you do consume caffeine, we recommend consuming it in moderation in the morning before noon to support quality rest and sleep. Our daily routine guidelines can help you learn more about making caffeine work for you during the program.
Can I drink alcohol?
This is the Skinny60® not the Dry60. If you want to drink alcohol, we recommend consuming it during the day, rather than at night, to give your body time to digest it. However, you will get the best results if you refrain from consuming alcohol during the week you are on the program.
Do I need to consult with my doctor?
Even though this is a clean eating program and is not an extreme approach, we recommend that you make an appointment with your doctor or healthcare practitioner who is familiar with your medical history to discuss the suitability of some of our recommendations. We also recommend reviewing your current medications and supplements with your practitioner to determine whether our recommended supplements (which are optional) are right for you.
What if I am being treated for a medical condition?
Please consult with your doctor or medical practitioner to determine whether the 7-Day Kickstart is appropriate for you.
What if I am pregnant or nursing?
We do not recommend pregnant and nursing mothers participate in the program.
HAPPINESS GUARANTEE! OUR PROMISE TO YOU.

If the 7-Day Kickstart doesn’t help you in those 30 days, contact us, and we will issue a full refund.
“This was such a fantastic gift to myself.”
"I did the kickstart as a gift to myself. I was feeling sluggish and bloated, and wasn’t taking care of myself in the way I needed to. But, I was stuck, and didn’t know where to start to make the changes I knew I needed to make. This was just what I needed. The routine was easy to follow, the food was incredible, and it was easy to put together. And, I had plenty of leftovers for snacks. The protein piece was a real eye opener for me, and so was the food combining. It took me a couple of days to get my head around it. But, I just went with it, and it paid off. In just a week, I am less bloated, I am not tired after I eat, and I am sleeping through the night for the first time in ten years."
