My blood pressure medication has been cut in half. My diabetes medication out the window - GONE. It's incredible, I'm elated. I've done every yo-yo diet (all the count this, count that).

How does it work?
20Lighter is an award-winning program targeting the underlying issues of obesity and related diseases. This unique comprehensive program delivers dramatic reductions of inflammation and visceral fat, the fat around the organs in the chest and abdomen. This breakthrough strategy results in sustainable and meaningful improvements in your weight, diabetes, high blood pressure (and many other issues) that allow you to proceed with joint surgery, to recover faster, and live a better life.
The 20Lighter 40Day Program includes 40 days of our patented meal plans tailored to each client, and a proprietary 3-week transition back to a normal dietary lifestyle specific for each client. From start to finish the program is 60 days long and includes real food every day-no prepackaged foods, shakes, bars. Vitamin, mineral, and all natural anti-inflammatory supplements are incorporated into the first 40 days of each program. The program fee includes all materials (bluetooth body composition scale, supplements, mobile app) and documentation (meal plan, weekly guides, recipe e-book, program manual, etc.) needed for a program, the only additional costs would be the food you purchase at the grocery store or farmer's market.
We encourage you to watch the 12 minute video at the top of this page as it provides a nice overview of the 20Lighter program, the average improvements our clients achieve, and why our program is so different from others. During your initial consultation, any and all additional questions you may have will be answered.
How much does it cost?
20Lighter clients that are referred by a physician or healthcare provider are eligible for a special discount. Most clients referred for health purposes choose the 40Day program, and with the special discount the program fee is $995. While this fee is not covered by health insurance, 20Lighter program fees are qualified medical expenses and can be counted towards your medical expenses for tax purposes, and are reimbursed by most HSA, FSA, and HRA accounts. The program fee covers everything except the food you get at the grocery store or farmer's market.

Book a free phone or video conference consultation with our staff by clicking here or any of the book consult buttons on this page. On this brief call we will review your goals, answer any questions you have, and outline next steps on how to purchase a program and get started.
I am unable to exercise, can I still participate?
20Lighter programs do not include an exercise component. If clients are already participating in light physical activity (like walking) we can accommodate that, but we do not recommend clients start a physical activity program while on program.
Is 20Lighter covered by insurance?
While our program fee is not covered by insurance, it does qualify for flex spending account, health reimbursement account, and healthcare savings account reimbursement. Our program fee is a qualified medical expense and can be counted towards healthcare expenditures at tax time.
Are there prepackaged foods, shakes, or meal replacements?
Absolutely not. Every 20Lighter program includes only freshly prepared foods (lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables) that you buy at the grocery store or farmer's market. The meal plans are tailored to your average daily physical engagement and baseline level of visceral fat, and are flexible with respect to food allergies and sensitivities.
What is visceral fat, and why is it important?
Visceral fat covers the organs in the chest and in the abdomen. This type of fat is associated with many health issues and is a risk factor for stoke and heart attack. Visceral fat causes inflammation and the development of chronic diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure. 20Lighter programs target this type of fat to enable major health improvements. 20Lighter clinical data has been presented at two dozen international medical conferences and has been the subject of several peer-reviewed medical journal articles. At 20Lighter, we feel that 'weight loss' should go far beyond the number on a scale, and focus on reduction of the weight that contributes the most to ill-health, aches, pains, and fatigue.
Do I have to visit an office?
There is no need to visit an office, all 20Lighter programs use telehealth technology right on your smartphone. Daily engagement with your 20Lighter provider is via messaging in a HIPAA-compliant mobile app and all follow-up appointments use video conferencing or are done by phone depending on the a client's preference.
