We built a unique solution based on cutting-edge research

Conventional opinion is wrong.

You already know health costs are out of control. A rising tide of preventable, chronic disease is to blame. But the conventional wisdom that we should just “eat less, exercise more, and take pills” has failed. Restore Health™ turned to cutting-edge science from leading universities to build our solution. That science suggests lifestyle factors promote insulin resistance that leads to the metabolic syndrome now affecting 1 in 3 American adults, and putting them on a fast-track to have deadly and expensive conditions like type-2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, cancers, hypertension, and Alzheimers.

Built from the science up to reverse metabolic syndrome.

Nutrition
NUTRITION
“Eat a low-calorie, low-fat diet. It’s all about ‘energy balance.’”
Calories from different macronutrients are metabolized differently. This is more important than total calories.
References »
We coach participants to eat a diet low in refined carbohydrates, sugars, and processed foods, and instead eat more healthy fats.

Sleep
SLEEP
“Sleep is unrelated or not very important to chronic disease.”
Inadequate and low-quality sleep affect insulin sensitivity, fat metabolism, and appetite.
References »
We coach participants to get a consistent 7+ hours of sleep per night.

Stress
STRESS
“Stress is unrelated or not very important to chronic disease.”
Chronic stress increases risk for metabolic syndrome and drives cravings for unhealthy comfort foods.
References »
We coach participants to use stress management skills and proven relaxation techniques.

Exercise
EXERCISE
“Do hours of steady-state cardio to burn calories for weight loss.”
Interval training is more effective, improving insulin sensitivity to promote fat loss and metabolic health.
References »
We coach participants to do high intensity interval training, or interval walking, matched to individual ability.
