“I know what to do… but I have a hard time staying consistent.”

When life gets crazy and responsibilities at home and work pile one on top of the other, it’s easy to let our health and fitness slip. The years go by and we don’t even realize how much our health had declined.

But for most of us, there comes a time when we realize things must change. A time when gaining control over our body takes on new urgency.

For some, it’s a scary health diagnosis. For others it’s watching a loved one struggle with their own health problems. And for others still, it’s when they finally realize they’ve spent so many years taking care of others, that they neglected to take care of themselves.

When it’s time to turn things around and start a new health and fitness program, however, it can be difficult to know what to do next. And staying motivated is hard — especially if you try to do it all on your own.  That’s where I come In.

My goal is to help you get in the best shape of your life and STAY that way. Starting now.  

That’s where I come in.

  People who have used this system, had their weekly coaching calls with Ingo, have been able to achieve results like this and more.

“I was a chronic yo-yo dieter always looking for an answer. Precision Nutrition is the first and only plan to ever help me in 40 years of dieting life. I am off all medicine and no longer have to use my CPAP machine. Precision Nutrition helped me win back my health.”

Cindy, 50, lost 70 lbs


“I’m a perfect example of someone who knew what to do but wasn’t doing anything about it. I had dramatic changes by simply following the program.”

Bryan, 42, lost 32 lbs

“I love that I can wear a two-piece swimsuit. I love eating right and not wanting to kick myself for overeating unhealthy food. I love that I’m buying size 6 instead of 14. And I especially love running into people I haven’t seen in a while and hearing ‘Wow! You look great! And so much younger!‘”

Laurie, 56, lost 51 lbs


“I love the fact that I could tap into the shared knowledge of thousands of people who had done this before. I look at myself and compare what I accomplished in one year to 16 years of doing it on my own.”

Andrew, 43, lost 51 lbs

“I used to be an emotional eater. I never expected to become a person who could release my stress through exercise. I don’t regret one day of this last year. It was exactly what I needed to get myself back on my feet and feel fulfilled again. Not just because I lost weight. But because I now have the confidence to feel like I’m worth it.”

Jill, 25, lost 55 lbs

“Precision Nutrition Coaching has been an investment in myself on a long-term, consistent basis. That was a huge change from what I used to do — trying to get into shape on a short-term basis where I would just get burned out and go back to my old habits. And coaching really gave me a person who was looking out for me and helped me stay consistent.”

Tim, 36, lost 100 lbs

“I didn’t use to take time to appreciate my body, and the last 15 years my weight has been up and down. I knew when I started Precision Nutrition that it would be the last thing I tried. I feel like I’m at my best right now—it was a year of fun, excitement, change, and triumph.”

Jodie, 34, lost 51 lbs

“I can’t thank you enough for all that you’ve done for me. Between buying and renovating a home, growing my family from one child to two, and continuing to watch my business grow, PN has given me the confidence and strength to keep going.”

Adam, 28, lost 40 lbs

Not to mention, after many years in the fitness industry, we’ve seen dozens of diet and exercise fads come and go. That’s why we don’t follow fads.

We help you bring health and fitness into your life in a way that works for your life and your body. Bottom line: Precision Nutrition Coaching enables you to make fitness and nutrition a part of your life—without it taking over. Our program is designed to work on your absolute worst days, not just your best days. As a result, our clients get results like this:


Q: What does the program include?

The One Year With Ingo Coaching You includes:

  • A structured year-long nutrition program to help keep you consistent.
  • An expert coach to give you feedback, make adjustments, and help keep you accountable.
  • Strategic daily nutrition practices that fit into your lifestyle.
  • Expert-designed (yet optional) exercise programs, customized to your skill level, goals, and time available.
  • $250,000 in prize money. We stack the deck in your favor and give you something positive to shoot for.
  • Guaranteed results. Stick with us for a year, and if you don’t get what you’re looking for, you get a full refund.
Q: How often do you accept new clients?

We only accept new clients 4 times per year—and tons of people visit our website during those registration periods. That means we only have the capacity to coach less than 1 percent of the people who express interest in working with us. Because of that, our programs have historically sold out in a matter of hours. That’s why we encourage people to put their name on the presale list. By adding your name to that list, we’ll give you the opportunity to register 24 hours before everyone else, increasing your chances of getting a spot. Plus, you’ll save up to 50% off the cost of the program. It’s our way of rewarding the people who are most willing to commit, because they’ve always proven to be our best clients.


Q: Who is The Wellness CSI and our Brand Partners at Precision Nutrition Online Coaching For?

The Wellness CSI’s Online Coaching is for women and men who want to get healthier, fitter, and stronger—and stay that way for the rest of their lives.

It’s for people who want to…

  • lose weight and body fat
  • build physical strength and confidence
  • get results that last
  • and get off the diet roller coaster once and for all.
  • Plus, the program is designed for people with busy schedules.

We work closely with our clients to help them eat well and exercise, no matter what other craziness is going on in their lives. We provide you with personal accountability, a structured nutritional program to follow, and a coach to help keep you consistent and on-track. We don’t give you a crazy diet or exercise program to follow; instead, we help you build habits that will get you results that last forever.

Q: Who is Online Coaching NOT for?

Our Coaching is not for figure or fitness models, professional bodybuilders, or high-level athletes training for a particular sport. It’s also not for people who already have all the accountability they need. If you rarely struggle with staying consistent with your exercise or eating habits, then we’re not a good choice for you.

Q: Will This Really Work For Me?

Want to lose weight? Eat better? Feel less stressed? Get more sleep?

If you follow our recommendations and stick with us for the full year then yes, you will get results. If you participate in our online program and do at least 80 percent of what we ask you to do, you’ll end up leaner, stronger, healthier, and happier with your body than you ever thought possible. You don’t have to get it perfect. But you have to commit to making small, strategic changes in your life. That’s something no one ever likes to admit about getting in better shape: It takes hard work, time, and determination. Changing your body isn’t easy, but it is possible.

For 15 years we’ve helped thousands of people do all that and more. No other company has that track record, and we’re confident we can help you, too. Once you make the commitment to get in better shape, we’ll be with you every step of the way. When life pushes you around and difficulties come up, we’ll help you push back. We’ll stack the deck in your favor and give you every advantage we know of. Over the course of 12 months, you’ll learn everything you need to look, feel, and perform at your best. That’s our promise.



Q: Do you really guarantee results?

Absolutely. We guarantee our work—100%—because it’s the right thing to do.

We’ve helped over 100,000 clients people improve their nutrition, bodies, and health over the past 15 years; that makes us the world’s most experienced nutrition coaching team. Stick with us for a year and follow our recommendations. If you don’t get what you’re looking for at the end of the year, we’ll give you a full refund.Seriously. Every penny. You get to decide if the program was worth it. Why do we do this? Because we stand behind our work. We know you’ll walk out healthier and happier than ever before. Bonus: If you do really well, you could even win a bunch of cash at the end too.



Q: Who are you and what makes you qualified to coach?

I’m Ingo Loge along with our brand partners Dr. John Berardi, Ph.D., co-founder of Precision Nutrition.

We’ve devoted our entire career to making health and fitness something that’s achievable and attainable for every type of person, from every walk of life.

Here’s a Little Something You Can Dive Into Today While Your Waiting For Me to Get Back to You— IF Your Goal is Better Nutrition, Health and Fitness

Totally Free and Ready for Action Right This Moment!

(No Email or # Required Unless You Want to in The Form Below)

Get Ready to Shake Things up With 3 Diet and Lifestyle Limiting Belief Experiments That Have the Power to Revolutionize Your Eating and Lifestyle Today!

(yes, even if they seem deceptively easy).

And as a bonus, don’t miss out on my free mini-course below!


Limiting Belief #1: “If I had more willpower, I could stop eating so much junk food.”

Many of us assume that willpower is something we’re either born with… or we’re not.

So when we find ourselves reaching for the second (or third … or fourth … or fifth) chocolate chip cookie, we beat ourselves up for being “weak.”

But portion control and healthful food choices are less about motivation and willpower and more about your environment. Give this experiment a try, and you’ll see what we mean.

The experiment: Do a Kitchen Makeover. FREE 5 Day Course Below

Use this two-step process to clean out your fridge, pantry, freezer, and other places you stash food. In the process, you’ll make some foods a lot harder to eat and other foods a lot easier to eat.

Step 1: Make a List, I Learned This When Studying With Dr. William Sears M.D.

Determine your red, yellow, and green light foods.

But keep in mind: At The Wellness CSI, we don’t believe in universally good or bad foods. Everyone’s red, yellow, and green lists will be different. 

Here’s how to identify yours:

Red light foods = “no go” foods. These are foods that present such a difficult challenge for you that they just aren’t worth the struggle. Red light foods may not work for you because:

  • They don’t help you achieve your goals
  • You always overeat them
  • You’re allergic to them
  • You can’t easily digest them
  • You just don’t like them

Ultra-processed foods often fall into this category.

Yellow light foods = “slow down” foods. Maybe you can eat a little bit of these and stop, or you can eat them sanely at a restaurant with others, but not at home alone.

Green light foods = anytime foods. They’re nutritious and make your body and mind feel good. You can eat them normally, slowly, and in reasonable amounts. Whole foods usually make up most of this list.

Live with other people?

Try these client-tested strategies.

 So what if your partner or kids love the foods that you want to get out of the house?

Many clients have confronted this exact predicament. Here’s what they suggest.

Talk about it. Explain that you want to make a change—and why. You might say, “I really need your help. I can’t do this alone.”

Take small steps. Focus on removing or reducing a couple of foods at a time rather than every single red light food at once.

Compromise. For example, rather than purchasing half-gallon containers of ice cream, most familys now buy eight single-serving cups—just enough for each family member to consume two single-serving desserts a week.

Stash it out of sight. If you must keep a red light food in the house, make it as difficult to access as you can. For example, you might keep chips on a shelf in the basement rather than in the kitchen. One of my clients asked his wife to store desserts in a safe for which only she knew the combination.


Step 2: Get Cleaning.

You’ll probably need a large garbage bag (maybe a few!) and a compost bin, if you have one.

First, get rid of the red light foods. If you struggle with the idea of wasting food, consider donating unopened, non-perishable, unexpired items to a charity. Compost what you can’t donate.

And remind yourself: Overeating is no less wasteful than trashing the food, given your body doesn’t actually need the calories. Plus, you just might find, as Matteo did, that your kitchen purge actually saves you money over time because you’ll stop buying certain foods.

Next, deal with the yellow light foods. You have a few options here. You can remove them, keep them in smaller quantities to prevent overeating, or put them somewhere hard to see and reach (on a high shelf in an opaque container, for example).

Lastly, stock up on your green light foods. Put these foods front and center and take steps to make them easy to grab and eat.

For example, maybe you make your own trail mix, storing it at the front of the pantry where you’re more likely to see it. Or, perhaps you peel a couple of oranges and keep them toward the front of the fridge, for easy snacking during your laziest moments. Or maybe you keep a half dozen hard-boiled eggs on the ready.

One note: Don’t overdo it when purchasing new green foods, especially produce, as they’re likely perishable (unlike most of the red and yellow foods you’re replacing). Remember, it’s okay to start small and build from there.

Step 3: Take Notes.

The next time you get a craving for a red or yellow food, notice what happens. Do you reach for something on your green light list, since that’s what’s right in front of you? Or do you drive to the store to get food you crave? Or… do you decide not to eat anything at all because it requires way too much effort?

The Lesson: Your environment makes it harder to practice healthy eating habits.

Client Quote: “Understanding that your environment guides your decisions can facilitate better actions,”  

If a food is in your house or possession, either you, someone you love, or someone you marginally tolerate, will eventually eat it.

There’s also a corollary to this law:

If a healthy food is in your house or possession, either you, someone you love, or someone you marginally tolerate, will eventually eat it.

This is why relying on willpower or motivation is a fundamentally flawed plan. No matter how much or how little willpower you actually have, you’ll eventually default to the easiest food options, especially when you’re tired. Or stressed. Or ravenous.

By removing red light foods, you make the choice to eat green foods so much easier—almost no willpower required.

Limiting Belief #2: “I hardly eat anything, and I still can’t lose weight.”

Feeling this way can be incredibly frustrating and confusing. Sometimes, it even stops people from trying to get healthier altogether.

But in every case, the principle of energy balance applies:

When you eat more calories (energy) than you expend, you gain weight. And when you eat fewer calories than you expend, you lose weight. (Which sounds way simpler than it is, of course.)

So what gives? Let’s find out.

The experiment: For one week, track everything you eat.

All you have to do: Write down what you eat every day for a week.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. You’ve heard this advice before—maybe hundreds of times.

But have you really done it? By actually writing it down (versus keeping a mental tally)?

For every single meal and snack?

Every day?

For a whole week?

If not, give it a try. It’s actually a lot easier than it sounds. You can write it down in a notebook, use a record-keeping app like MyFitnessPal, or even just snap a photo of everything you eat and send it to me. 

Make sure to include everything you eat and drink. Don’t forget to record the cream and sugar in your coffee, the dressing on your salad, and the lone fry (or was it eight?) you stole off your kid’s plate.

(Note: Unless you enjoy it, we’re not recommending you track this way regularly. This is just a short-term experiment.)

Treat these notes as if you were a scientist. This isn’t about judging your food choices. It’s merely about noticing them. Be kind, curious, and compassionate with yourself.

For the most accurate snapshot of your eating habits, try to do this during a typical week without any big events, and don’t change how you normally eat just because you’re keeping track.

At the end of the week, take a look at your log. Is it in line with how much you thought you were eating?

The lesson: It’s easy, and incredibly common, to underestimate how much you eat.

Research shows that, on average, people underestimate their food intake by around 47 percent—for all sorts of understandable reasons.

First, mindless nibbles can be even less memorable than the storage location of our car keys.

Second, though humans are great at a lot of things, estimating portion sizes just isn’t one of them. We don’t always recognize how caloric certain foods are (hi, peanut butter), and sometimes we deceive ourselves. (‘I had, like, five chips… not three-quarters of the bag… right?”)

Point is, this is a real thing. And it happens to a lot of people—even dietitians.

That’s why many people need nutritional guard rails—calorie counts, macros, or hand portions—to guide what and how much they eat… at least for a little while. Here at TWCSI, we use hand portions to help clients make better food and portion judgments. (We’ve seen some incredible transformations using this method alone.)

If you haven’t already checked out our Nutrition Calculator, go ahead and plug in your goals and personal info. You’ll get a full report of how much to eat, along with the corresponding hand portions, and everything you need to know about how they work.

Using this approach, in combination with mindful eating practices like eating slowly and to 80 percent full, can help you eat in a way that makes weight loss feel more effortless. 

3 more experiments to try

Want to keep learning more about yourself?

Try the following to keep gathering intel.

Experiment: Eat nothing but sugar packets (read: pure sugar) for a day. (Good luck!)

What it shows: Sugar itself may not really be a problem food for you. Read: Most people won’t stuff themselves with sugar alone. Instead, it’s more about what the sugar is mixed with. For example, you may be okay consuming it when it’s in fruit, yogurt, or even ketchup, but not when it’s inside your personal red light foods like cookies, chocolate, or ice cream.

Experiment: Eat slowly every day for a month, trying to make every meal last a little bit longer. (Start by taking a breath between bites.)

What it shows: You may discover that you feel more satisfied sooner, so you eat less automatically. You may also notice eating slowly brings up uncomfortable feelings—ones you’ve been quashing with food.

Experiment: Use my 5 days free course below to make breakfast a little bit healthier.

What it shows: You don’t have to do a complete 180 in order to see progress. Could you swap cold cereal for oatmeal? Could you have fruit instead of hashbrowns? Could you try eggs on a bed of greens instead of with a bagel? It’s not just about the substitutions; it’s about being thoughtful about what you eat… before you eat. Small changes, done consistently, pave the way to lasting habits.

Limiting Belief #3: “I seriously can’t handle being hungry.”

Hunger is a lot of things: annoying, uncomfortable, distracting…

One thing it’s not: such a big deal that you should do everything in your power to avoid ever experiencing it.

Problem is, hunger feels like a big deal. Some clients have even told us that hunger feels like an emergency. They worry that if they don’t eat right away, their hunger will continue to get worse and worse and worse until… they die.

Or wish they could.

For these reasons, many people eat as soon as they feel even the slightest pang—physical or mental. That often means they consume more than really needed, which leads to weight gain (or stalls fat loss). They also reach for whatever they find first (see experiment #1).

But what happens when you don’t immediately meet hunger with food? Let’s find out.

The experiment: Try fasting for a day.

We know it sounds scary. Nothing bad will happen—promise.

We include this experiment, lovingly called “fasting day,” in my 6 month and one year-long coaching program. Over the years, my coaching clients have told me this day is one of the most impactful experiences of the entire program.

Here’s how it works: Consume no calories for 24 hours.

Zero. Nada. None.

Enjoy calorie-free drinks such as water, flavored water, unsweetened tea, or plain coffee. But other than that, avoid all food and caloric beverages.

Obviously this isn’t something we recommend long-term. It’s just one day.

And it just might be the most challenging and insightful day you’ve had in a long time.

A couple of important caveats:

You can do this on a schedule that works for you. For example, you could fast from dinner to dinner, or lunch to lunch. If 24 hours feels like too much, consider just skipping a meal or two instead. This isn’t about getting it “perfect.” Also, it might go without saying, but you probably shouldn’t try this experiment on a day when you need to be 100% “on your game,” such as when you’re flying a plane or doing open-heart surgery.

Fasting isn’t right for everyone. Do not fast if you:

  • have a medical condition that requires you to eat
  • struggle with disordered eating and have been told never to fast
  • know that periods of food restriction—even if done carefully and consciously—can lead to bingeing later on

The lesson: Hunger isn’t an emergency.

It’s natural to worry that hunger will keep getting worse and worse—making us feel lousy and preventing us from getting anything useful done.

But hunger doesn’t work like that.

Hunger hormones are released in waves based on when our bodies are expecting food.

As you’ll probably experience while doing this experiment, hunger is strongest around the three- to four-hour mark of a fast. Then it subsides.

It’s an incredible feeling (and often a great relief) to learn that you can feel hungry—truly hungry—and choose not to do anything about it.

There are several benefits here:

  • Benefit #1: If the available food choices don’t make sense for you, you know you can wait until something better is available. No biggie.
  • Benefit #2: You learn what true hunger feels like. This awareness can help you distinguish psychological hunger (“I feel like eating something”) from physiological hunger (“My body is telling me it’s time to eat”).
  • Benefit #3: If it’s not “time to eat,” waiting until your next meal or snack won’t feel like a problem. This is not only convenient if hunger strikes somewhere food isn’t accessible (such as on your commute), but can also be extremely helpful if you’re trying to lose fat.

Keep experimenting, keep growing.

You can probably see why we’re such big fans of self-experimentation: It’s quite literally a win-win. You’ll either get a reaffirming boost of confidence and confirmation that you’re already on the right track, or you’ll get valuable information about how you can change things for the better.

By simply paying attention to how experiments make you feel, you empower and energize yourself to make better, more informed choices.

And remember: Self-experimentation isn’t about getting it perfect. It’s about finding out what works for you, and then putting it into practice—one small step at a time. See you in the course below, and please drop me a note when your done!
