You’re reading part 3 of 7 of The Weight Loss Consultation: How to explain the SOZA Weight loss program.
Now it’s time to talk about our specific program and its differences. First, obviously know how to explain the SOZA program.
What is the SOZA Weight loss program
How the supplements work
The 3 “how-to” phases of the program
Discussing price and signing up the patient
1. What is the SOZA Weight loss program?
By now, the patient has been exposed to influential in-house marketing, seen posters or gone over the patient success book, etc.
They are confident that this program has worked for others and now want to learn how to do it.
To give you an idea of how I begin MY consult. I place their wellness questionnaire in front of me and start the conversation. As I mentioned in Part 1, the wellness questionnaire provides a snapshot of where they are TODAY in their wellness lives.
I am proud of our program because of the WHY, not just the HOW. Again there are many weight loss programs, regardless of whether they work.
Our WHY resonates with people because of altruism. We have a great philosophy. Read on.
Say I am interviewing “Janet.”
Before we start chatting, I notice the patient nudging the 1lb of the fat replica with disgust. I always hear, “OMG, is that what I think it is? Please tell me that is NOT what 1lb of fat looks like!!”
“Unfortunately, ma’am, that’s exactly what it is.”
After the disgust or shock phase, I ask if Janet consumes artificial sweeteners…
“Janet, the first thing I would like you to do today, whether you sign-up or not, is to take your sweetener and throw it in the garbage, please. Then, go to a healthy foods store and get stevia-based sweetener.”
Believe it or not, some people are pretty surprised!
Here is the thing, I’m passionate about wellness and living healthy, naturally, etc. (whatever you want to call it). I wouldn't say I like artificial ingredients in the foods we consume.
It’s unbelievable, honestly. Now you don’t have to be a wellness fanatic, but use a higher ratio of natural to artificial ingredients.
I use natural ingredients, including my care routine, like the natural toothpaste below.
You probably are getting a good picture of what I am about and what it would be like to have a wellness conversation with me. In any case, if the patient told me they were using stevia-based sweeteners, that’s great, and we are like-minded people…I say to them what the SOZA Weightloss plan is regarding belief.
“The SOZA weight loss program foremost is a holistic all-natural weight loss program. What I mean, Janet is that this program is about following a natural lifestyle. The supplements and real foods you will be on are all-natural. This isn’t like taking phentermine to artificially cut your appetite or purchasing pre-packaged foods full of artificial ingredients.
We (wellness professionals or SOZA) believe in addressing your health from a holistic point of view. To be healthy or lose weight, not only do you have to eat the right foods for weight loss, but you need to eat clean and as naturally as possible. I am not asking you to buy only organic, for instance, but how about whenever possible?
You need to cut out artificial ingredients and processed food from your weight loss program to achieve results today and in the long term. The word SOZA means ‘whole, complete’ in ancient Greek.” Get healthy to lose weight.
Usually, the patient nods along. Why? Because everyone wants to be healthy! People appreciate the “why.” This “why” proves that the program has its best interest at heart.
We haven’t even gotten to the how-it-works. The all-natural living during our weight loss program is a precursor to a long-term wellness lifestyle.
2. How the supplements work
If you haven’t read this article, I suggest you go through it again for your information.
“This is the weight loss kit. These are all non-GMO supplements and made for health care professionals.
BIO-ACTIVE: This is an energy supplement, Vitamin B-12. It is methylcobalamin and NOT cyanocobalamin found over the counter. It is an excellent quality B12 that will give you consistent energy throughout the program. Let the tablet dissolve under the tongue.
LEAN: It helps with two important things. First, it boosts metabolism and appetite support.
SUPREME: This homeopathic remedy helps balance your hormones while on the program.
They do not interfere with any medications. You will take these supplements daily throughout the program as per the protocol.”
3. The Phase 1,2,3 “how-to” of the program
Now we get into the nitty-gritty of the program. The program has 3 phases, and we go through each part, but first, I give a general overview of what they can expect to eat and why they should lose weight before any exercise program.
For your note, many overweight patients are also unhealthy. If they are harmful, exercising is not a good idea. It’s better to get healthy first.
“This is not an exercise program. Exercise is excellent and essential to building muscle, but we want to focus on foods for fat loss. Exercising and building muscle requires eating more food. It’s better to lose weight first, and it’s easier on your joints. Let’s get fat off, and exercise comes later.
Janet has three main meals daily, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with recommended snacks. Proteins, fruits, and vegetables.”
You can show the patient what food they will be eating here.
Phase 1 (start the Spray and B-12)
The first two days of the program, I want you to eat whatever you want, and a lot of it. You don’t have to eat junk food unless you want to get it out of your system before you start the diet by bringing you prep your body for the diet days and for your body NOT to go into starvation mode as soon as you start.
Typically, when we go on a low-calorie diet, our brain signals that we are starving, and our body goes into starvation mode; we hold onto the bad fat and lose structure fat and muscle mass. We want to avoid this.
Start by taking 1 B-12 tablet every day. Don’t worry. All this is in the manual. The SUPREME spray lets it seep through under the tongue three times in the morning when you wake up. Hold for 2-3 minutes. Same thing before you sleep (after you brush your teeth).”
Phase 2 (Continue Spray, B-12, and LEAN)
You will start to consume about 800 calories per day, and you will use the spray twice per day, again three pumps when you wake up in the morning and three pumps when you go to bed. Since you would be eating nutrient-dense foods, you won’t feel it to be low-calorie.
You take 1 B-12 tablet under your tongue in the morning. Take 1 LEAN along with your breakfast and lunch when you wake up. Your typical day will consist of some fruit for breakfast. You can have apples, oranges, grapefruits, pears, and berries. Let me ask you something…grapefruits, do you love them or hate them?
These are probably one of the best fruits you can eat because they have a fat-releasing enzyme.
You will also have 1-3 egg whites, cilantro, tomatoes, asparagus, etc., whatever you’d like to add to give your egg whites a bit of flavor. However, this is optional. It just depends on how you feel after eating your fruits.
Then you will have a fruit snack mid-morning if you want to, then a salad with about 4 to 6 ounces of protein plus a handful of fresh vegetables during lunch. You can eat them raw, grill them or steam them. Do not microwave them anymore.
The mild radiation destroys all the nutrients in them! Then you will have another fruit snack in the middle of the afternoon.
For dinner, you can duplicate what you had for lunch. Best to have a different protein.
Later you can have some vegetables or a protein bar before bed.
You will continue this diet until you reach your desired weight goal, wherever you want to get to. Once you do that, you are done with the products.
We’ve got recipes that we can give you as well.
Now that you’ve explained some mechanics reinforce with motivation and inspiration.
“Give this program 10-12 days, and you’ll see be shocked at the amount of weight you’d lose. Anyone can do anything for 10-12 days, right?”
You want to hear from your patient, “that’s right,” and NOT, “you’re right.” If you hear, “YOU’RE RIGHT,” you didn’t get through to them.
“After 10-12 days, weigh yourself and see how loose your clothes are. This is the fat you are losing and not muscle. Make sure you read the manual and follow the protocol strictly. Losing weight and getting healthier is a work in progress, and they work simultaneously. Take this seriously because this program is like getting treatment.“
“When you hit your goal weight, you transition into a higher fat diet, good fats of course, and eat slow-burning carbohydrates: no white flours or anything like that. You want to take it slow. Now you can exercise more!”
