Microbiome-Friendly Weight Loss Workshop

Your body is designed for excellence

Lose weight for good

You’re not “big boned” or born to be overweight. Excess weight is simply a sign that your lifestyle needs a shift.

We know how hard it is to create new habits – and actually stick to them! That’s why we’ve designed this workshop to help you.

Over the course of 6 weeks, you’ll get video lessons that delve into the science, show you how to make healthy eating a habit, as well as give you access to a whole community of people that are on the same journey.

Every day, you’ll post “dailies” where you share a food diary and reflect on your progress.

Now's the time

This workshop is done in real-time. You’re accountable. You don’t have the option to start “tomorrow.”

And that’s the power.

We all know waiting to start often leads to nowhere.

We’ve designed a space that gives you the momentum. Day by day, you’ll see the difference.

There’s no reason to wait any longer. 

Break those habits today. 

Release the desire for dangerous, unhealthy foods. We’ll show you how to refine your food preferences so you pick healthy whole foods.

Microbiome-Friendly Weight Loss in a nutshell…

Microbiome scientist and GUTXY Founder Sofia Popov designed this workshop to empower you to personalise your own diet and use science to take control of your health.

Who’s it for?

If you’re done with diets that don’t work, tired of going through yo-yo cycles and are confused about how to finally reach your optimal weight, this workshop is for you.

Break free from the pseudoscience, self-professed gurus and weight loss fads.

There is no quick fix. 

Yet there is a BIG difference in what you apply your commitment to. Don’t direct your efforts at something that simply doesn’t work.

Grounded in science, our approach is based on what’s not only good for releasing weight, but also keeping it off for long-term success. 

Whether you’re looking to lose 2kg or 20, this workshop can help. 

Over 6 weeks you’ll: 

  • Refresh your habits
  • Learn how to consistently sustain a healthy lifestyle
  • Optimise your eating patterns and lifestyle to support longevity 
  • Support a healthy microbiome
  • Finally shed that excess weight!  

Your body is made to be lean.

Stop getting in the way, and let it reach its natural set point. 

How does it work?

The Weight Loss Workshop is built on three main elements:

1. The lessons: Video lessons are shared every week for the duration of the workshop.

You’ll learn:

  • Why calorie counting doesn’t work
  • How to foster a fat-burning microbiome
  • How to lose weight without feeling hungry
  • How to make microbiome-friendly foods easily

2. The prompts: These are thought-provoking questions that challenge your existing habits and thoughts about food. These prompts are an opportunity to practice each lesson and better your understanding by reflecting and sharing your answers with your global GUTXY peers.

3. The conversations: The heart of this workshop comes from connecting with your GUTXY peers through our online community. You get the most by supporting each other on your journeys. You can expect regular feedback. And remember: the more you contribute, the more you’ll grow.

We also have regular live calls. Completely optional, these are offered at different times so you can join regardless of where you are in the world. 

Throughout the workshop, our trained team will be there to support and challenge you, helping you go further and reach your goals. 

What is the time commitment?

The duration of Microbiome-Friendly Weight Loss is 1.5 months.

You should expect to spend at least 30 minutes a day on the workshop. Your time will be spent diving into different prompts per week, posting your dailies, giving/receiving feedback, and engaging with your global peers.

What technology is required?

  • Computer with internet access.
  • Discourse – This digital platform is the foundation for our GUTXY community. This will be your 24/7 discussion board and student portal. It’s where you’ll share your dailies, get your lessons and engage with your peers.
  • Camera and microphone – To participate in the calls, we encourage you to have both a mic and a camera

Cost of tuition

The cost of tuition is $595 USD. There are no additional fees or taxes.

Understand your microbiome

Most diets mess with your microbiome in order to lose weight. What’s the point of losing weight but wrecking your health?

That’s why this workshop is different. We focus on feeding your gut what it needs. 

That way, your body will naturally release the weight – because it’s not starving for nutrition.

Our lessons will delve into the science of your microbiome and its relation to weight, making it that much easier to support your gut on a daily basis.

Gut dysbiosis (imbalance) has been correlated with indigestion, weight gain and other undesirable symptoms. Learn how to keep your gut in check, so it can serve you!

You are who you surround yourself with

Our eating behaviours are strongly influenced by those around us. 

BUT. What happens when everyone else is choosing chocolate chip cookies and chips? 

It makes it all that trickier to stick to a healthy lifestyle.

Yes, we’re surrounded by temptation all the time. That won’t go away. The trick is to re-frame the mind. 

One of the best ways to set yourself up for success is to find others that understand your journey. 

In this workshop, you’ll get real-time feedback from our GUTXY team, as well as connect to other people that have similar goals and struggles. 

It’s your own accountability corner! 

One where you can’t be distracted – from family members or friends that don’t understand your health ambitions. 

Anchor your ambitions with someone who understands. 

That way, you can help each other succeed. 

What the workshop is like

Our workshops are interactive, not static.

Unlike other online courses, we don’t just want to give you never-ending access to content.

We focus on giving you a once-in-a-lifetime immersive experience.

This is how to truly learn.

Over 1.5 months, you’ll get lessons (in English) led by microbiome scientist Sofia Popov.

During the workshop, most of your time is spent sharing your dailies, thoughts and reflections. The rest of your time you’ll be doing what leads to the most learning: interacting with the community, posting questions and teaching others. 

Sharing is the best way to move forward. 

Show up for the lessons, do your daily work, contribute to the community and you’ll get back far more than you put in.

The golden rule of our workshops always applies: the more you put in, the more you’ll get out. 

Instead of a series of video lectures, you’re enrolling in a journey ready to change your life. Everything you contribute helps the workshop succeed. They move everyone forward.
