Originally I was hesitant about joining the SHED, so many thoughts went racing through my mind…Did I have the time? Did I want to meal prep? Was I ready to commit to daily supplements? Could I attend the calls? Was I ready to put down that glass of wine after a hard day? Was I ready to uncover massive mindset information I knew but didn’t know about myself??
Finally, I stopped asking the questions and giving into excuses and I decided to put myself first! I signed up for the SHED, received the supplements printed the manual, and jumped in feet first! AND I AM SO GLAD I DID! Not only did I lose 22 lbs, but I also lost 24 inches in total! I learned so much about myself, my thoughts, my impulses, and with help from Coach Rachel I have turned unhealthy habits around and actually want to continue my healthy lifestyle. I would say if you are hesitant about the SHED, just do it! Commit to your future self and your health, I promise you won’t regret it!”

Answer: E. All of the above. Read on to learn more.
This past year has presented each of us with challenges that we couldn’t have anticipated. In addition to our “normal” responsibilities, issues, and goals, we now have to be especially cognizant of our health. We have to be strong and healthy – at our physical best – not just for ourselves but for those who rely on us.
“I was looking to get my life under control at a time when everything felt very much out of control. Since “everything” included myself, my exercise, and my nutrition I sought out a place that could help me with all of those areas in my life. Nutrition Works exceeded my expectations and I love working with Rachel. She has changed my thought process which has changed my life. All of the coaches I have interacted with at Nutrition Works are top-notch and care very much for their clientele. I feel incredibly fortunate to have found Rachel.

Simple. Healthy. Effective. Detox
The SHED is here to support your efforts to get (and stay) healthy while eating real food – and a lot of it. Most participants report eating more food on a daily basis than ever before and still losing weight. The goal of The SHED is to put you in control and to assist you in shoring up your health by empowering your fight against:
“For me, its benefit lies in helping me establish a “new normal.” The SHED proper was the intensive that laid the groundwork for helping me understand what changing I could make to reach the goals I want. SHED for LIFE has provided the maintenance tools to keep me in the mindset of making sustainable change. The mindset shift has been so important for me because with the SHED I found myself concentrating on a week timeline. It was “pausing” and exploring. SHED for LIFE was about me choosing what I wanted and how I wanted to integrate the change indefinitely. It encourages the thoughtful exploration and curiosity we learn about in the SHED but does so in a way that encourages and supports sustainable change.”

Questions? We’ve got answers.
Can I do the SHED if I’m pregnant or nursing?
No, unfortunately not. However, we would love to support you after!
Can I do the SHED if I’m type 2 diabetic?
Yes! The SHED is an excellent way to manage blood sugars, learn new eating habits, clean up your diet and potentially lower your A1C.
Will I lose weight?
Typically! Results vary with each participant and most people lose an average of 10 lbs or a total of 10 inches off their body frame. In rare cases, some peoples weight remains the same, but their energy is through the roof, they feel healthier, sleep better, are happier and feel less “puffy”.
Can I do the SHED if I’m on prescription medications?
Yes / And – per the manufacturer of the supplements, it is safe to SHED while on prescription medications OTHER THAN BLOOD THINNERS*
*If you are concerned, I always recommend consulting with your Doctor.
What do we do during the SHED?
I strategically created the SHED to step you out of the standard American diet and move you into an anti-inflammatory, low allergenic, whole foods lifestyle.
- The first week we hit “pause” on 3-4 items. Typically, sugar, caffeine, alcohol. We add a nutrient dense shake and 3 additional supplements each day while eating clean foods.
- Each week we pick 1-2 more foods to pause on with week 3 being the cleanest, most energizing week consisting of fruits, vegetables, lean protein and healthy fats.
- Week 4 begins reintroduction of foods to determine possible food allergies or sensitivities while creating the protocol for your future dietary lifestyle.
From day one I will be walking you through the process, answering any questions, providing feedback and tips to support the process. You have a direct line to me as your Nutrition Therapist and Life Coach. Each week I will offer group coaching where you can join us to be coached or listen to others and answer any additional questions you have.
The SHED has a robust private FB group of all past and current SHEDDERS to support you, encourage you, offer tips & tricks and keep you accountable. This group is invaluable to your success…and it’s a lot of fun. Additionally, I will provide you with foundational video’s and worksheets that will help you understand your psychology of change, ensuring continued success long after the completion of the SHED.
I’ve been diagnosed with a chronic disease. Can I do the SHED?
Maybe. In this case I would encourage you to send me an email with the diagnosis and we can have a conversation to discuss if this program is right for you. When in doubt, please consult with your Doctor.
Do we eat food?
This is a resounding YES! I will never, ever advocate starvation or severe restriction. We eat lots of nutrient dense, whole foods during the SHED. Most SHEDDER’s say they eat more food than they typically do and still lose weight!
Will you tell me what to eat?
Yes – and I will also encourage you to be creative in the kitchen. I provide you with a 30-day menu (vegetarian menu available upon request) that follows the outline of each week during the SHED. You will have breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack ideas to carry you through the program. I give you A LOT of amazing recipes, so make sure to try them out. Oh, and I know how busy you all are so I try and keep them simple and quick.
Will I need to be near a bathroom all the time?
I promise you, you won’t. The SHED is a gentle cleanse that allows the body time to shift over time. No blow-outs here!
Does the SHED work?
Yes. How it works is different for everyone and dependent on individual goals. Some use it for weight loss, others metabolic syndrome, many to identify food allergies/sensitivities and almost everyone to feel better after the holidays.
Is the SHED vegan?
The supplements are 100% vegan, gluten free & dairy free. Regarding the menu, we have one for carnivores and one for vegetarians. If you need a modification for vegan, I encourage you to post on the Facebook community page for tips and suggestions.
Can I do the SHED if I don’t live in Denver?
100%. As long as you live in the continental US, you are welcome to join the SHED.
“Where to start?!? SHED for LIFE helped me break the endless cycle I was in where I felt controlled by food. I am no longer a woman who goes through drive-thrus and is no longer controlled by food. things that I just did or felt were outside of my control! The coaching to help me change the script! Each week I could practice the skills I was learning, share my struggles, support others with their struggles, and celebrate the wins!!! I’m going to join this again so I can keep re-training my brain!”
