Dr. Martha's program will help you transition to the only diet that gets easier with time  — a low-insulin-producing low-carb diet — while developing an ongoing exercise habit and skills to cope with cravings, eating out, travel, stress, old emotional patterns, and more.

Suitable for weight loss, Type 2, and pre-diabetics.

What to Expect

A dynamic weekly class with a group of 6-8 women ready to change their lives with you at their side. The program starts with an analysis of your body composition (lean mass, fat, water, and additional metrics). We assess insulin sensitivity and how you use food to develop an eating plan that is exactly what you need for where you are right now.

Each week we'll cover a new topic (how motivation works, keys to sustainable exercise, successfully eating out) and corresponding skills to practice throughout the week.

Check-ins and support materials delivered over the week will help keep you on-track between classes. The program is a 90-day commitment to your success.


Build Practical skills

Develop skills to address the underlying emotional patterns that keep you stuck in failure, shame, and self-judgement while developing awareness and accountability


get a step-by-step food plan

Dr. Martha will create an individualized food plan based on your nutritional requirements and sensitivity to carbohydrates. Your plan will be adjusted as you lose weight.

"Food controlled me. My cravings left me feeling desperate, miserable, and ashamed."


For years I tried diet after diet, yo-yoing up and down between 140 lbs in my twenties  (“a little chubby” as one boyfriend called me) and more than 300 lbs in my forties — barely able to walk around the block.

Messages like ‘eat less! move more!’ from the diet industry weren’t helping, and I wanted to know why. I spent the next several decades, with a Ph.D in microbiology and an M.S. in nutrition science, researching what works and what doesn’t. I applied my knowledge of nutrition science, metabolism, physiology, and human behavior with the power of a low-carb diet to my own life, eventually losing 170 lbs. It all started with small steps forward.  — Martha

Nothing should feel impossible in this program.

If a step is too big, we break it down smaller until it feels do-able. Martha likes to call this "right-sizing" the steps — and it's the best method for continued progress and long-term success.
