No. When you license RESTART® as a qualified holistic nutrition professional,  you are not signing up to take a course. You are licensing a fully developed and branded curriculum that is ready for you to teach.

We do provide detailed instruction and trainings to prepare you to lead your groups, but there are no exams to take or certifications to renew. We do encourage you to maintain good standing within your own professional credential.

You already know all the information you are going to be sharing from your training in holistic nutrition. This is why we are so specific about the training you’ve already received.

RESTART® is a ready-to-teach tool for you to use in your practice. Because you are coming in with the nutrition knowledge already, you can just jump right in and start teaching RESTART®!

We appreciate that there are a variety of programs in the marketplace that your potential participants can choose from.  Some important differentiators are: 

RESTART® was created by a two-time award winning Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and is therefore based on in-depth training in holistic nutrition. Only qualified holistic nutrition professionals may license and teach this program

Another important difference is that this is a live, interactive class. Whether in-person or online, nothing is pre-recorded,  you are in the room, or in a live online meeting room together, where you all see and hear each other.

Your own educational background in holistic nutrition allows you to answer questions in ways that will be specific to your participants’ needs.

The simple yet powerful nutrition education in RESTART® emphasizes only REAL FOOD utilizing an omnivorous diet. There are no pills, powders, or pre-packaged foods to buy. It is not a promise of a quick fix.

It is not a weight loss or “diet” plan. Participants do not have to read a book to figure it out by themselves and perfection is not required!

RESTART® provides small group support from the Instructor and peers who are all participating at the same time.

It is a personal journey of self-discovery with take-away tools that can be used for a healthier lifetime. RESTART® works!

RESTART® is designed as a set up for success. It is a class with general information that emphasizes healthy blood sugar regulation. The information is designed to get people thinking about how their body works, the food they put into it, and how that food affects them.

You can start teaching RESTART® very quickly after becoming a licensed Instructor! There is flexibility to suit your needs.

The great news is that RESTART® is ready to teach whenever you are!

Yes. At this time all classes are being taught online.

We offer specific trainings on how to teach your RESTART® classes online to address some of the technical aspects of teaching in this format.

When it is safe to hold in-person classes, we encourage Instructors to teach this class in person as well as online – because there is a different “feel” to the class when it is in-person vs. virtually.

Online classes must still be taught “live.” Recording RESTART® for any reason is not allowed.

This program is designed to be taught in small groups.

The recommended size for your group is between 4 and 10 people. That said, it has been taught successfully to just 1-3 at a time, or up to about 12.

You will find that each group has its own dynamic, regardless of size.

Yes. There are “alumni” (as we call previous participants) who repeat this program 2, 3 or even more times.  RESTART® is something that people can do over and over again and benefit from it each time.

Yes! The RESTART® Cookbook is a collaborative effort of several RESTART® Instructors. It is not required, but it is a wonderful and valuable addition for your participants.

In addition to our cookbook, there are so many recipes out there that are fitting, in cookbooks as well as on the internet. We have our own RESTART® Pinterest board where you will find many recipes along with other resources, and there are many additional RESTART® themed Pinterest boards that have been created by instructors and enthusiastic participants alike.

 

Yes! We have created our own journal to to help our participants make the connection between the food they eat and how they feel. With two pages per day,  there is plenty of space for food and habit tracking, plus reflections and discoveries made along the way, all in one handy book. This is also a great tool to use with private clients.

You should also charge for them separately.

There are no additional fees to maintain your license.
