Q. How does your program work?
A. Each Profile by Sanford member is paired with a health coach that works with them to put a custom nutrition plan together based on their goals and wants. Members attend weekly appointments where they work through Journey Mapping modules that help support sustainable lifestyle change. During coaching sessions members can discuss their progress, adjust their plan and get advice. Our phased approach to weight loss teaches members how to sustain their new lifestyle and adapt to eating more grocery foods.
Q. Why are coaching sessions important and what does 1-on-1 coaching look like?
A. You and your coach will partner together to focus on knowledge, skills, and behaviors to help you be successful in the long-term. To start off, you will meet with a coach weekly where you will focus on your personalized nutrition plan, activity to fit your lifestyle, and education to support you along your journey. Your coach is your guide! You also have the option to try out different coaches and stick with the one that best fits or continue to meet with a variety of coaches! These coaching appointments are important as you navigate challenges and reinforce new skills. Each appointment will focus on your progress, needs, and challenges, and include an education topic along with goal setting for the week.
Q. What results can I expect from being on a Profile by Sanford plan?
A. At Profile, we measure success on and off the scale. You and your coach can focus on a variety of results from health to energy, or other “non-scale victories” or use weight as a way to monitor progress. When it comes to weight loss, typically our members will see approx. 1-2 lbs a week depending on their goals.
Q. How long does it take to lose weight on Profile?
A. Our members start to see results right away! Our members will lose approximately 1-2 pounds a week depending on their goals.
Q. What happens after I lose weight? What other benefits might I see other than weight loss?
A. Education, skill-building, reinforcement and behavior change are integral components of effective weight management programs. At Profile, we provide tools to help you not only lose the weight but to maintain the weight loss. There are a variety of different benefits our members see that happen off the scale, such as increased energy, confidence, mood improvements, and mental clarity. We celebrate these successes along your journey.
Q. Can I do Profile from anywhere? What if there are no Profile locations near me? How about virtually?
A. Yes! We have a program called “Profile at Home” that personalizes a plan to you, no matter where you are. You will meet with a coach and have weekly conversations via video or over the phone. Your coach will also ship you the Profile foods you need for the weeks ahead. Profile foods are also available for purchase online. Food and coaching services are only available in the United States of America.
