Sam is not alone. With well over 60% of Australian adults being classified as overweight or obese, the health outlook for many is grim.
Changes in both diet and lifestyle have lead to the rapid increase in a number of preventable diseases including diabetes, various cancers, a drop in fertility and now an increase in dementia has been linked to the modern diet.
Sam started following the Ultra Lite weight management program 15 years ago and lost 48 kilos in five months.
But more impressive is that she has kept the weight stable ever since. “Ultra Lite teaches you how to eat, what to eat and gives an appreciation and respect for food,” Sam says. “It changed my life dramatically.”
The Ultra Lite program works with your hormones to train your body to burn fat. You do not suffer from hunger or cravings. Your energy levels, vitality and alertness improves.
Viva Wellness includes full body composition analysis before and as you progress with your weight loss. You need to be able to monitor and measure loss in body fat.
You also must ensure you are not losing muscle. Too many weight loss systems result in a loss of muscle mass. This leads to your weight rebounding after you have finished your diet, the so called ‘Yo yo diet’ syndrome which is so bad for your health.

The Ultra Lite weight loss and detox program has been transforming lives since 2000. It is different because it is successful.
The Ultra Lite Weight Loss and Management program is recognised by most health funds, see below.
The system is based on sound science and common sense and is supported by clinical research. Medical trials and many thousands of successful patient outcomes have proven this method of rapid and sustained weight loss. The Ultra Lite weight loss and detox program is a naturally balanced program based on a ketogenic diet system. By depleting your stored carbohydrates the program directs your body to burn fat stores. Avoiding refined carbohydrates and sugar, and limiting excess carbohydrates, you will maximise fat loss.
You can lose up to 3 kilos in your first week and lose up to two kg per week thereafter. This is very rewarding for people who want to lose weight fast. More importantly it also teaches you how to control your weight for life.
Your body will burn stored fat, providing energy through natural ketosis. In simple terms, this program is all about fat loss. Unlike many other quick weight loss programs, the Ultra Lite weight loss and detox program will not deplete your body of vital fluids and muscle mass. The weight loss and detox programs are based on real food. You consume appropriate and balanced amounts of protein (based on recommendations of the World Health Organisation), carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, trace elements and essential fatty acids.
Many types of cancer and other weight related disease can be avoided by maintaining a healthy weight and by making healthy food choices. Ultra Lite takes away the guess work and will not only assist you in losing weight and detoxifying your body, but will encourage maintaining that weight loss for life!

This is not a calorie controlled diet where you can consume your daily calories from any foods, regardless of quality. Nor is this a meal replacement where nothing is learnt about correct food preparation. You will learn healthy food choices and, more importantly, healthy portion sizes. Ultra Lite only recommends wholesome unprocessed foods such as meat, fish, chicken, eggs, nuts, vegetables and fruits.
Successful weight loss, detoxification and maintenance will only be achieved by re-education and “brain re-conditioning”. We don’t leave you alone on this journey. Our professionally trained practitioners are there to support you with weekly consultations, weighing and measuring and providing valuable advice and supervision. This will ensure that you receive maximum benefit and results from your weight loss and detox program.
