Not Sure If This Program Is Right For You?

Here are answers for some of the most frequently asked questions…

Q: Who Can Join?

A: Everyone! Participants just have to be over the age of 18 years old and not currently a distributor (associate) of or preferred customer of my product partner, USANA Health Sciences. Location doesn’t matter, all of the program content is delivered to your email inbox, and your supplement box will be delivered to your doorstep. (Prices may vary outside the US, contact me for details.)

Q: What’s the time commitment?

A: On average each week, you’ll spend about 10-45 minutes watching the videos, reading handouts and completing the daily content. You can go through the information at your own pace; if you want to set time aside daily that’s great, or save the week’s emails/content and go through them all on the weekend, that’s fine too! These time frames are the perfect amount of training for you to learn a ton and digest the information, while still fitting easily into your busy life. You have access to your materials for life, so you can always pause your learning and restart when the time is right.

Q: What’s the difference in the 21-Day Clean Up Your Diet Program and the Weight Loss Program?

A: The Weight Loss Program contains the same content as the 21-Day Clean Up Your Diet Program, with the addition of a 5-day healthy cleanse done with smoothies and nutrition bars, and additional smoothies and bars used as meals and snacks throughout the Weight Loss program. There’s no need to register for both; the Weight Loss program is simply an extension of the 21-day program and is for individuals who want to lose weight using healthy smoothies and nutrition bars as meal and snack replacements. Some people lose a little weight on their own during the 21-day program simply from cleaning up their eating habits. However, some people need and/or prefer a little extra structure and guidance on their weight loss journey and prefer to use my healthy cleanse, smoothies and bars.

Q: Can men join this program? (You betcha!)

A: Men can absolutely join. In fact, we encourage it. Only one day of the program focuses on female-specific info. The online Facebook forum is for ladies only, but men are more than welcome to join and will receive the same supplements and (food products if you are doing the Weight Loss Program), as well as access to all daily content.

Q: Are there any “liquid only” days?

A: Nope. And I’m not really a fan of any cleanses or detoxes that have “liquid only” days where you basically subside on some kind of sugar water. Doing so slows down your metabolism, is completely unnecessary, and isn’t good for your mental health, either.

Q: I’d like to lose weight, which program is the best fit for me?

A: While the 21-Day Clean Up Your Diet Program isn’t a weight loss-specific program, you will learn the principles of losing weight through healthy eating. Most people find that they naturally lose a few pounds when switching to a clean diet and beginning a high-quality supplement regimen. If your goal is to lose 5-10 lbs or more, we recommend that you also take a look at the Weight Loss Program as it contains the same information as the 21-day program, but also includes more information on weight loss and comes with healthy meal and snack replacements to help you reach your goals.

Q: I’d like to lose more than 15 lbs, is this program a good fit for me?

A: Yes, if your goal is to lose 12-15 lbs or more, the program can be adapted to help you get there. We’ve had people use this program to lose as little as five and as much as 75 lbs (over 13 months).

Q: Will I feel hungry on this program?

A: Not at all. In fact, a cornerstone of the program is identifying and managing cravings and hunger.

Q: Are the supplements you use healthy and/or organic?

A: Yes. I take what I (and you!) put in my mouth VERY seriously. I looked long and hard for the best supplements on the market and chose USANA Health Sciences because of their pharmaceutical-grade manufacturing practices, which is a higher standard than organic. What’s on the label is guaranteed to be in the bottle, and over 600 Olympic and professional athletes trust only this brand.

Q: Are the programs gluten-free?

A: All supplements and products that are included in the cost of the 21-Day Clean Up Your Diet Program are gluten-free. With this program, you will be preparing your own food during the 21 days (or dining out) based on your own bioindividual needs. If you’d like your 21 days to be gluten-free, that is 100% doable. If you are interested in the Weight Loss Program, there is a very small amount of wheat bran in some of the products for the nutrients and fiber it provides. In general, even people with gluten intolerances do fine with all of the products. However, we do have a gluten-free option for people with celiac or that just prefer gluten-free. Just indicate that’s what you’d like when you register. The cost might be between $5-$15 more if you choose the gluten-free option as the cost of the raw ingredients in the smoothies and bars is slightly higher.

 Q: Are the products you use in the 30-Day Weight Loss Program healthy and free of artificial sweeteners?

Yes. I looked for 1.5 years at 73 different companies to choose the best products on the market. Each of the smoothies and bars are made from natural sources and are certified low glycemic. Also, each smoothie and bar contains less sugar than an apple and is free of artificial sweeteners and colorings.

 Q: Is the 21-Day Clean Up Your Diet Program safe for pregnant women?

It’s important for pregnant women to always consult with their medical health care professionals before starting a new health program; this program is not a substitute for professional medical care nor does it provide medical advice. That said, all products that come with the 21-day program are safe for pregnant women, and we can even swap out the multivitamin for a prenatal multivitamin. Additionally, the program focuses on healthy eating habits, techniques and recipes and does not promote calorie restriction.

 Q: What if I don’t like it, can I get my money back?

A: I treat my digital and online offerings the same way as most audio and book retailers: I don’t offer refunds on programs that can be downloaded and viewed (industry standard) or custom supplement packs (again, industry standard.) This program is non-refundable, please read the full program details before purchasing. That said, I’ve never had anyone ask for a refund, this program is loaded with useful information. Again, please read the entire program details page before purchasing. If you have a question that I haven’t addressed, please feel free to contact me here, or email me at marymrust72@gmail.com
