About

Improving the Health of Our Communities One Lifestyle at a Time 

Built on the foundation of a medically designed and developed weight loss protocol, Simplr Health is a weight loss and lifestyle education program. Simplr Health is committed to the four pillars of 1) validated science for safe weight loss, 2) personalised one-on-one coaching and support, 3) dieter empowerment and 4) a healthier lifestyle education so dieters may sustain their results long-term. These four pillars, and the emphasis on the need for lifestyle change to ensure successful weight loss, are at the heart of what makes our protocol unique and effective.

This is the Simplr Health Difference

Maintaining a stable weight after dieting often requires changes to your lifestyle habits. This is why Simplr Health strongly emphasizes education and understanding. You must learn to eat “smarter” or risk regaining your lost weight. Therefore, when you begin our program you will be assigned a personal weight loss coach. Your coach will assist you through each of the 4 phases of the Simplr Health Weight Loss Method. In phases 1 & 2 your coach will help you set your weight loss goals and support you on that journey. In phases 3 & 4 your coach will shift focus to weight stabilization and post-diet living, teaching you weight maintenance habits that may assist you in keeping the excess kilos off after dieting. You will learn:

  • how your body fat is burned.
  • the relationship between insulin and weight gain.
  • which foods are best suited for healthy weight management
  • when, why and in what combination to eat carbohydrates, fats, and proteins,
  • and much more.

Our Mission

Simplr Health’s mission is to have a meaningful impact on the global epidemic of obesity. Therefore, providing our dieters with a quality of service that matches the quality of our products is our number one priority.
