Congratulations to our Masterclass Optimisers on your spectacular results!

Congrats to all the amazing Optimisers who participated in our May Nutritional Optimisation Masterclass.  

A record 512 members walked away winners after dialling in their macronutrients and micronutrients over six weeks.  

We wanted to say a big congrats and share some of their phenomenal results.  

Improvement in Nutrient Density

It all starts with optimising WHAT you eat.  

Your body needs enough of all the essential nutrients without excess energy.  

We quantify this in terms of nutrient density.  

If you already have plenty of stored fuel onboard (as body fat and elevated blood glucose), then all you need is nutrients from your food.  

There is plenty of confusion regarding macronutrients and whether carbs, fats, or proteins are “good” or “bad.” But everything falls into place when people focus on getting the nutrients they need from the food they eat.  

This time around, we wanted to focus even more on helping the newbies dial in their nutrients, and we were thrilled to see so many people improving their Optimal Nutrient Intake Score.   This is where the magic happens!   Congrats to the amazing Optimisers who made such a massive improvement in their diet quality over six weeks.

Not everyone needs to reach an Optimal Nutrient Intake Score of 100%.  If you reach 100%, it’s hard to stay there for the long term.  But EVERYONE makes progress when they make incremental improvements by chasing the foods and meals that provide more of the nutrients they are currently not getting enough of.  

Weight loss  

As Optimisers dial in their macronutrients and micronutrients, satiety kicks in, and weight loss follows.  Check out these fantastic results (in just six weeks)!

Change in waist 

Your waist to height ratio is perhaps the most powerful marker of metabolic health!  Our Optimisers also saw some dramatic changes in their waist measurement.

Change in blood glucose 

Your blood glucose is another excellent measure of your metabolic health.  

Once you ensure you are getting adequate protein, it is wise to dial back carbs to the point you achieve healthy blood sugar variability (i.e. a rise of no more than 30 mg/dL or 1.6 mmol/L after meals.  

We don’t focus on blood glucose in the Nutritional Optimisation Masterclass as we do in our Data-Driven Fasting Challenges.  However, people still tend to see some significant improvements in their blood glucose over the duration of the six-week class.

Fat loss

Your body doesn’t care about your dietary beliefs or preferences; it just needs enough nutrients. So it shouldn’t be too surprising that, with adequate protein (as well as all the other essential nutrients), the body is happy to release the fat it is preemptively storing for emergency use.  A crappy environment of processed foods signals a famine, with a lack of good food, so it needs to go into storage mode.

Maximum nutrient density 

Finally, we come to the Optimal Nutrient Intake Score (our measure of nutrient density).  

This leaderboard tends to be dominated by people who have repeated the Masterclass a few times.  But the fact that we are seeing more and more people achieving a perfect 100% score is incredible and validates the efficacy of Masterclass.  It’s hard not to improve!

We have worked hard to make Nutrient Optimiser the ultimate tool to empower people to get the nutrients they need from food, not supplements.  We now have more than 450 optimised Nutriboosters recipes and a suite of cookbooks designed to help you optimise the nutrients you need to meet your goals and thrive.  

We’ve been pleased to see so many of our Optimisers join the Nutrient Optimiser Forever Plan to continue to use Nutrient Optimiser for recipe inspiration to dial in their nutrient density in between the six-week Masterclasses.  

Join the next Masterclass 

Our next Masterclass starts Saturday, 14 August 2021.  If you’re interested in joining our fantastic community of Optimisers to dial in WHAT you eat, we’d love you to be part of our next class of winners.  You can join here.
