As you may have discovered already, the tried and failed adage of "Eat Less, Exercise More" doesn't work for long term weight loss. But why?
Because there is another factor involved.
Join me on this 8-week journey to achieve weight loss and build a sustainable solution for the long term.
“I am a 100% believer in this journey! I thought I was born with only sweet teeth and destined to be diabetic like my entire family. Once I gave up artificial sugar, I no longer crave sweets. I feel great, have more energy and am losing weight. Thanks so much for your passion and willingness to draw alongside and sojourn with us!!”
- Deborah H.
“This has been the best thing we have ever done! My A1c is down to 6.2 from 7.2 just 3 months ago. The results are almost unbelievable! It's sustainable and worth the journey. ANYBODY can benefit from this program. I highly recommend it.”
I was surprised that after the first two weeks of the program, that I was sleeping better, had more energy and my reflux was gone! Thank you, Dr. Scott, for helping me to get healthy! Your encouragement and prayers were a bonus!”
“Dr. Scott has taught me how my brain functions in response to the food/beverages I consume and their effects on my health. The weekly sessions provided a gradual process of change that enabled me to never be overwhelmed by my new lifestyle choices. I am now free of my chronic sugar crashes and stomach bloating/discomfort. The legacy of family diabetes has been broken!”
“I am 54 years old and for a long time have not liked myself. Over the past 3 going on 4 weeks something has changed. I am starting to feel beautiful again. I know I have a long way to go but this it is so way worth it. Thank you Dr. Ries for inspiring me to start this journey.”
“I could never convey with words how thrilled I am with the iFactor journey. Once you understand the relationship between insulin and blood sugar and the role of your brain in the feelings of hunger and fullness, you realize you are truly on to something. I will be eternally grateful that I participated in iFactor. My lifestyle is forever changed, and I am seeing my weight where it hasn't been since my youth.”
“Not only have I lost 25 pounds (and still losing) but my health in general has greatly improved. My A1c dropped from 6.1 to 5.4, my triglycerides have dropped more than 50 points, no more heart burn or headaches! Having the group support and the science behind the needed changes made all the difference in turning this from a diet to a new life style! Thank you so much.”

After trying every diet out there I decided to try the iFactor. I don’t feel so tied down to counting calories and weigh out meals. I can’t tell you how great I feel to have met my first goal weight!!! It seems like if I could lose 40 pounds that I can do anything! Thank you for all your help and advice!

I know it's a risk to put your faith in a program like this, and invest both your time and money in a result from something new. I trust that you know whether this is the right time for you to take action. I also trust in my program, and want this to be a no-brainer for you. If after the first 2 sessions you don’t feel there is value for you, we will refund your investment…no questions asked.
What is my iFactor exactly?
Your iFactor represents the response of insulin in your body. Insulin is a natural, necessary hormone that helps your body process sugars and carbohydrates. The problem in our culture is that our diet has led our organs and tissues becoming resistant to insulin—causing a high iFactor. The higher your iFactor, the more resistance you have to insulin, the more you will gain weight, and the harder it is to lose. By fixing your iFactor, you can restore your normal insulin function, lose weight...and KEEP IT OFF.
Who leads the iFactor sessions?
You will have me on each session through your iFactor Journey. I will be guiding you through each phase of your iFactor Course, answering your questions, and helping to ensure your success in fixing your iFactor to achieve the weight loss you have been hoping for.
How much weight should I expect to lose?
Each person will vary in the amount and speed
of weight loss. The important thing is not how fast you lose weight...but how well you fix your iFactor. Once your iFactor starts to normalize, you will begin a steady, manageable weight loss. While you may lose more or less than others, a typical weight loss on the iFactor plan is about 17-22 pounds over 8 weeks. And these are pounds that stay off.
When will I have access to my iFactor course?
Your iFactor journey will begin as soon as you register! You will receive an email from me with all the instructions needed to get started on this life changing journey. Each week you will progress to another level, building on what you have learned and incorporated into your life so far. Through these weekly sessions and our live support times, I will help you step by step to build your confidence and ensure your success!

You said the value of the iFactor Plan is $1,000, but are offering it for only $397. Can you explain?
The comparison is if you were to see me (or another doctor) in the office, and we were to take this very same iFactor journey together. The results would likely be the same, and we would walk through the same 6 steps to fixing your iFactor. However, our weekly meetings would cost $120/meeting (maybe more in some offices), would be limited to 15-20 minutes, would not provide the bonus features or the iFactor Library to review. You would also not have the private support group. The typical Vtrim participant spends almost $700 in that program, and Jenny Craig users spend on average $2,500!
Can’t I just purchase a book and figure this out myself?
Don't underestimate the high cost of failure with that approach. The support of a live program and caring community can make a massive difference. In addition to bringing the cost down, it still allows me to answer your questions, and has opened up the ability to offer a support group of others to also encourage you on your journey.
Will I have to exercise with the iFactor program?
While exercise is indeed an important part of healthy living over the long term...it is not necessary for effective weight loss. In fact, if you start an exercise program at the same time you start modifying your eating patterns, you may actually increase your chance of failure! On the iFactor plan, at first you will stay with what you are presently doing. If you are already getting light to moderate exercise, fine. Keep it up. But if you are doing nothing...you will stay with nothing! At least at first. Once your iFactor has begun to correct, we will introduce very basic, achievable activity as a supplement. But not at first.
I already have diabetes. It is too late for me to fix my iFactor?
No! While you are further down the iFactor dysfunction road, you are not without hope! Diabetes, in many people, is indeed reversible. If you control your diabetes with diet alone, no problem. You will just join like everyone else. If you are on medication or insulin injections, I strongly recommend you discuss with your doctor your desire to take the iFactor journey. Explain to her or him that the iFactor Plan is not a severe calorie restriction, but rather a dietary lifestyle modification with expected gradual, sustainable weight loss. They will advise you on specific blood sugar monitoring and any medication adjustments needed. And they will probably be thrilled with your progress!
"I'm so pleased with the iFactor program! I started to notice my clothes fitting more loosely after just two weeks. After six weeks of following your healthy eating advice, I am down a whole size and have seen the weight loss come right off my middle section!"
