Better Body System Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Is it safe to lose weight this fast?
Answer: Yes. These products were designed to work synergistically with your body to improve health. The Better Body System was designed to burn fat, regardless if you want to lose weight or just get lean and sexy. This is not a diet, but a system to help you reset you body’s set point to become a fat burning machine.
A recent study at the University of Florida found that for obese patients in the initial stages of weight loss, shedding pounds speedily may actually be key to keeping them off.
Question: Aren’t all meats acid forming?
Answer: Yes, but that is also why Yoli’s Better Body System excels over every other program on the market. You see, to burn fat and/or gain muscle, it is essential to add more protein to your diet, which can cause an acid overload and tax your organs, bones and tissues. Alkalete and PURE are our secret weapons. Alkalete, which is protected by 8 Patents on both the ingredients and the machines that make it, was scientifically developed to buffer acid waste throughout the body, helping to protect organs, bones and tissue.
PURE was specifically designed to improve digestive function, help remove toxins and support immune function. Most programs promoting protein shakes and protein meals will cause your body to tax the organs, tissues and bones as the body tries to protect itself from excessive acid. Alkalete and PURE will keep you in balance and allow the body to discard acid waste and fat in a natural, safe, and healthy way.
Once you move to an exercise phase, Alkalete will help the body recover faster and excel in endurance by buffering acid waste created by the muscles.
Question: The calorie count is low on the protein days. Is it safe to exercise and if so, to what level?
Answer: What we recommend is that the first week, if someone is exercising, to decrease by 50% in intensity and duration.
Since you are not bringing in carbohydrates, and especially if you are lifting weights, and we are already depleting carbohydrates, if you push too hard, you will end up drained and feeling worn out. You might want to rest longer between sets or even take the first week off.
Let your body adapt to change the first week. Your body is adapting to what you are asking it to do. We are providing herbs and nutrients and a pattern to teach the body how to burn fat as a fuel source rather than the carbohydrates you bring in normally for fuel.
So, there is already a lot going on asking the body to do some things it’s not used to doing. So just take it easy, doing some light walking, the best recommendation for the first week.
Question: Is exercise required?
Answer: No. Many people have tried just losing weight in the gym and have spent a lot of money only to walk away frustrated. Diet and nutrition is the real key to managing weight. The key is cleansing, getting healthy, and changing your body’s fuel sources.
Your nutrition determines what you look like. The first two to three weeks, your body will have better results with a light workout, as opposed to hitting it hard. Down the road, after the body has adjusted, your energy levels are up and your set point is adjusted, adding exercise will supercharge the results.
Question: What does a good week look like?
Answer: The first 2 days are protein only days and you’re going to cut carbohydrates out of your eating. We are trying to dramatically reduce or deplete all the carbohydrates in your blood, your muscles, and your liver, so that your body has no choice but to burn fat as a fuel source. Now when you wake up and especially if you use milk with your shake, you’re getting a few carbohydrates and natural sugars which is just enough to stimulate the brain. We don’t want you to be at zero; your brain uses about 500 calories a day and all it burns is sugar, so The Better Body System will provide the fuel you need in a beneficial proportion.
The nutrients you will get from the protein and milk is beneficial. So wake up, get your hydration, energy and metabolism cranking with the Passion energy drink. Think about your why and spend a few minutes visualizing your goals and dreams. Next, drink a YES shake and get some PuraWhey™ biologically active protein in your system right away. Getting the YES first thing in the morning will stimulate your metabolism and give your body the nutrients to burn fat while protecting the muscles.
When you sleep, after three to four hours, your body starts breaking down muscle tissue, so it is critical to get the protein in your body when you wake up. About every three hours, you want to be bringing some lean protein into your body. After every three to four hours, your body will start breaking down muscle tissue, and that’s the last thing we want to do. We want to make sure we maintain or even increase your lean muscle tissue during this program, so every three to four hours you’re going to be bringing in two to four ounces or more of some type of lean protein.
See the Better Body System PDF for food choices. Have some beef jerky, hard boiled eggs, deli meat, chicken breast, etc. available on your protein only days.
Day three you get a 500 to 600 calorie meal at lunch that includes some complex carbohydrates. This is the first time you will be introducing carbohydrates back into your diet and it is very important that you get these carbohydrates at lunch on day three. The schedule is the same as the first two days except at lunch, you’re going to have the extra 500 to 600 calories and include complex carbohydrates, things like broccoli, vegetables, beans, black beans, pinto beans, etc. Chicken salad with black beans and vegetables is a good choice.
Eating carbohydrates at lunch on day three is important. After about 48 hours your body is going to start protecting itself if you don’t bring some carbohydrates in, so when you do it at lunch time, your body is still going to have time to burn off the carbohydrates. That is one of the rules you will learn, that consuming carbohydrates, especially at night, is one of the worst things you can do if you want to lose weight, decrease body fat and get lean.
Even in the fast track plus, in the evening you will be eating light vegetables and protein, but cutting out things like pasta and bread.
Question: Why no fruits and vegetables on protein days? Aren’t they healthy?
Answer: It’s important to understand that with The Better Body System, we want to turn your body into a fat burning machine instead of a fat storing machine and to do this, it is very important to cut out the carbohydrates. Most people have some form of what is called insulin resistance; what that means is even when a person tries to change their diet and eat healthy, their body responds as if they are not eating healthy and the body still releases too much insulin. When you release insulin your body wants to store fat, so the first two days, we are breaking that cycle. We are flipping a switch and changing the set point for your body’s fuel source so it will burn fat.
Though fruits and vegetables are healthy and will be used in the fast track plus portion of the program, it is important to cut the sugars and carbohydrates when you first start on the fast track portion of the plan.
Question: Can I have a snack and if so, what type of snack?
Answer: You will need to stick with protein snacks, things like, beef jerky, nuts and seeds, almonds, fresh sliced deli meat, chicken, steak, turkey and fish. The key is not to impact the blood sugar level. Some of these have a little fat, but again, they will not impact your blood sugar level. Carb Master Yogurt is okay as a snack. Half the body weight in grams of protein is a minimum, but if you feel hungry, have a YES shake or eat a little more protein. Often you can simply hydrate with TRUTH™ or FUN™, which will also help curb your hunger.
A hunger feeling in this case is a sign your body is burning fat and that is a good thing to have happening.
Question: Can I marinate or flavor my protein meal?
Answer: We would prefer you add a little flavor and enjoy your meal as opposed to not enjoying the flavor. Marinating is okay. When you consider that you are cutting out the potatoes, breads and carbs from your meals, using a little marinade to flavor it is a fair trade off. Just try to keep it to a minimum and avoid marinades that are high in sugar.
First Week Overview
Days 1 and 2 – Fast Start, Deplete carbs in body, muscle, liver and blood stream. Most will see a few pounds of weight loss depending on if they have already been dieting.
Day 3 – Introduce carbs back into the diet and the body will store a few and you may not see weight loss, but body fat is decreased.
Day 4 – We are back to only protein, the metabolism is on high fat burning mode, and you will see weight loss again, but not quite as much, and [[you lose water in blood]]???? and the heart becomes more efficient. Clothes will be fitting loser.

Day 6 – Protein again and will see more results.
Day 7 – Meal day and congratulations, you’re on your way! You should have a new feel for the products and system and feel how they work with your body.
On average 7 – 15 pounds in 7 days.
Question: Is hydration important?
Answer: Yes, hydration is a major key to your success. If you do not hydrate, your body is going to hold onto water and your results will not be as good. You should drink half your body weight in ounces of water or Yoli Truth™ or Fun™ daily. Fluids, in addition to taking the PURE™ capsules, are key to helping the body cleanse and remove toxins, so hydrating is really important. Most people will not drink this much water, but with the Yoli drinks, people are able to get the fluids they need in a healthy way, drinking something that tastes sweet, yet they are cutting the sugar and carbohydrates. We have seen people lose 30 to 50 pounds by simply getting off the sugary beverages and switching to Passion™, Truth™ and Fun™; natural, low calorie drinks that are low glycemic and contain no sugar, artificial flavors, colors, chemicals or preservatives. In addition, they are designed to work with your body’s design to stimulate metabolism, support the immune system and provide optimal pH for bone and tissue health.
When do I transition to Fast Track Plus?
You will learn about the differences of foods and how they effect your body weight and also you will start getting a feel of how the Yoli products effect your system and health. Your energy level will begin increasing and your body will get into a good rhythm. Check your health survey and see what areas you’re getting the greatest benefits. After a week, your body will adjust and after about two weeks, you can consider moving into the Fast Track Plus. It really all depends on your goals.
Week one is about weight and what most people will see in weeks two and three are the inches starting to drop off. This is a key factor for many people, because they really desire to lose weight around the mid section and in areas the body tends to store fat.
This is a fat burning system, not a weight loss system. The goal is to maintain muscle tissue along the way. The Better Body System is much different than most others that cause you to also lose muscle weight which slows the metabolism making it tougher and tougher to maintain what you have lost.
There have been people who hit a certain weight on other programs and they are a size 16, but on this program they are a size 8, and it’s because you don’t lose muscle tissue. A lot of women will put on some muscle; it’s not bulky muscle, it’s just the body becoming more dense and lean as you lose body fat and gain muscle. You’re shrinking even though the scale isn’t going down as fast as it was before. Even small losses can have a significant impact on your appearance and what size clothing you are wearing.
I hope you got a lot of value out of this update. Again, please feel free to contact me with any additional questions that may arise.
To your best body!
