To kick off National Nutrition Month we’re breaking down Profile
so you can better understand what our program means to us and the thousands
of individuals who are achieving success every day through the help of Profile.
The plan is one of the most valuable assets to our program. Developed by
the Profile Clinical and Scientific Advisory Board, which consists of
Sanford researchers, physicians ranging from OBGYN to internal medicine,
diabetes educators and more. With this board, we built the plan to be
personalized to fit the weight loss needs of all who join, ensuring a
high quality experience that is simple, effective and sustainable.
Profile focuses on setting short-term and long-term weight loss goals for
members to see real results. The Profile plan uses three phases to help
you lose weight responsibly. Phase one, a low-carb, high-protein meal
plan that puts your body into a state of ketosis, changing the way energy
is used in your body. The second phase is a transition period where you’ll
lose weight gradually while working more grocery foods back into your
meal plan. The final phase of the Profile program is a long-term plan
for sustaining and managing your weight. A line of great tasting Profile
products that are nutritionally formulated to accommodate your plan are
a key component to results.
From the beginning, each Profile member will receive one-on-one coaching
from a Certified Profile Coach. These individuals go through comprehensive
training on nutrition, activity and lifestyle skills to help members get
the most out of the program. Coaches answer questions, provide advice
and help you address success and struggles. Through weekly meetings with
your coach, you will create a relationship that results in accountability
and motivation which results in success.
Profile members are achieving weight loss results that open doors of opportunity
they never thought possible. Many of these doors lead to physical fitness.
From 5 ks and CrossFit, to playing with their children and grandchildren,
Profile is dedicated to making physical activity an everyday part of your life.
Together Profile members have lost over 1,000,000 pounds. Each and every
pound of this milestone is an inspiration beyond belief. Our members motivate
and inspire one another as well as those around them as they witness the
remarkable changes being made.
Profile members are extremely proud of the weight they lose, but they’re
even more proud of the life they gain! It’s more than changing the
way they eat. Profile members are taking control of their health, wellness
and lifestyle and discovering strength they never knew they had.
In every coach meeting, Profile members are educated with valuable information
and skills that introduce them to nutrition, activity and lifestyle principles
they will benefit from the remainder of their lives.
