There Is A Solution. When You KNOW How To Suppress Insulin, Eating The Foods You LOVE, Hopeless Is Replaced With HEALED. Talk With Barbara Or Charlie To Discover YOUR WAY OUT. It's Closer Than You Ever Imagined.


Click "PLAY" for an important message from Charlie & Barbara McDermott.

Dear Friend,

There is a very effective way out of health chaos.

It's called Insulin Suppression.

Insulin is a fat storage hormone. So it would make sense that when we minimize insulin, our body fat stores unlock and we can begin using fat for fuel.

We call this the transformation from being a sugar burner to becoming a body fat burner.

And when that happens, weight loss is just the beginning of a tsunami of health benefits..

The trick of course is understanding the process.

And then implementing it so your transformation happens in the least amount of time possible.

But once you grasp this powerful knowledge, your life will forever change.

“Finally, Barbara McDermott has explained why I feel this way in a language I understand. And she has opened my eyes to the way out of health chaos without cravings, deprivation or complication. At last I understand how to get healthy... now it all makes sense!”

Okay Let's Get Right To It...
What Makes This Program So UNIQUE?

You probably feel like you've tried just about every program out there.

But have any of those programs even mentioned the words Insulin Suppression?

Not too long ago we also felt like we tried everything. We were looking for an answer to our daughter's life altering health condition and had almost given up hope. Resigned to a life of defeated acceptance of her situation.

We were even encouraged by family and friends to give up the search. Telling us, "Are you making it harder than it has to be? Erin will just have to learn to live with it."

During the seven years of struggling to find a solution for Erin, we invested over $100,000 on courses, doctors, psychiatrists, nutritionists, seminars, medical journals, products, pills, potions and more. You name it and we probably tried it. But nothing worked until we figured out this Unique 7-Step approach (See below.) we now call SHIFT Formula.

And as we write this, we’ve now helped thousands of individuals escape health chaos. Our testimonials below speak for themselves.

Over the past few years, we’ve addressed, softened and / or eliminated conditions from the obvious… cravings, weight gain, inflammation, pain and diabetes…

…to the not so obvious, IBS, brain fog, depression, low-energy, migraines and allergies. Even heart disease and Alzheimer's.

"I can't even imagine going back to where I was before."

How Do We Do It?

We've developed a 7-Step Process.

We call these steps the 7-Pillars to Vitality.

ARE YOU MISSING... One Or More Of The Vitality Pillars?

Building good health is very much like building a house. It needs all of it's supporting structure to stay upright.

If the house is missing just one beam or post, it's a life-threatening hazard to anyone in the vicinity of that structure.

In the construction world that house would be either repaired or more than likely, torn down.

In the world of health improvement, it's not that obvious.

Every day countless, well meaning individuals embark on a new health ritual. Trying to rebuild their health.

More often than not the new program shows early promise.

Pounds lost...

Feelings of confidence returning, and then...

Like the house with the flawed structure, eventually this latest program crashes.

And since we have no idea of the fatal flaw in the program we sadly blame and shame ourselves. And for what? For following the flawed rules? If you're building a house following a blueprint that left out a supporting beam or two, is that your fault?

Of course not!

But still, we are left depressed, angry, and frustrated. Bordering on hopelessness.

No wonder we are hesitant to... "try again".

We understand feeling this way because, we felt this way... and worse.

Watching our daughter beat herself up was absolute torture.

It would take months to try to convince her to make another attempt at reversing her health chaos. And as a parent, the disappointment in her face when we realized that yet another attempt to resolve her condition wasn't going to work out...
was devastating.

"In the short-term it hurts less to stop trying."

Fortunately, for Erin, we tried one more time... and succeeded.

And we'd like to share with you how we can do the same for you.

But, first let's take a look at our program...

The 7-Step SHIFT Program

STEP #1 - EDUCATION: The SHIFT Program Course... You get easy to follow, even entertaining, step-by-step direction. Yes, feeling better is fun! When you know HOW to eat to suppress insulin, the chain reaction is resolution for weight loss, inflammation, cravings, and every other metabolic disease symptom and consequence.

STEP #2 - EXPERTISE: Personalized / Customized Coaching... We schedule follow-up appointments to work with you. Our "hands-on" approach keeps you on track, and accountable as we customize your SHIFT along the way.

STEP #3 - REINFORCEMENT: Weekly Live Group Support Sessions... This could be the most valuable part of the program. During these sessions Barbara takes SHIFT members even deeper into the science of health gain... physical, mental and even spiritual. This is also your chance to ask questions and learn from other SHIFTers who have already experienced and overcome similar challenges you may face along the way.

These sessions provide the focus. Every week you move further along your SHIFT. You can attend these sessions with Barbara, Charlie and the SHIFT community or watch the replay if you can't attend.

STEP #4 - 24/7 SUPPORT: The SHIFT Community... You can’t overestimate the value of being around like-minded individuals who are further along their successful SHIFT journey and who will openly share with you their experiences and lessons learned.There’s no need to guess, be confused or get the least bit frustrated. You are never alone. Our community holds the answers to any questions you have... and even answers to questions you didn't think to ask.

STEP #5 - 911 EMERGENCIES: Direct Access To Barbara & Charlie... If you need immediate help from us, we're there for you! You get our private contact information so you can call, text, or email whenever those moments arise. This is our way of relieving your stress and lightening your burden. There's no need to willpower your way through anything. Contact us and we keep you focused and on the right track.

STEP #6 - RESOURCES GALORE: Recipes, Meal Plans & More... SHIFT is so simple, you don't need a meal plan to follow. Or recipes. But for those who want the structure and who enjoy great tasting recipes that take very, very little time to prepare, then you'll love what we have created. You get every resource imaginable to make SHIFTing an easy, enjoyable and fulfilling experience.

STEP #7 - LIFELONG SUCCESS BLUEPRINT: Now you can side-step the physical, mental, emotional and hormonal factors that sabotage 95% of others who try living a “healthy” lifestyle but can’t get long-lasting results.

PLUS... WE'RE WITH YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY FOR A FULL YEAR: Results happen fast. Change takes time. We insure your new SHIFT Lifestyle fits you like a glove by staying by your side for 12 months. You are never left on your own trying to figure things out or grasping for answers. We provide non-stop expertise, support and accountability. You become a member of our SHIFT Family.

If you've made it all the way to this point, there must be something here that resonates with you.

Maybe it's that little voice urging you along. Even though the rest of you might be saying... "RUN!"

Scroll down the page and review our testimonials. Chances are good you'll find individuals who came to us with your same condition along with plenty of skepticism.

They soon found relief.

If after viewing our testimonials you are still curious, we encourage you to fill out the form on this page to schedule a Discovery Call.

"In a few months my A1C was down 4 - 5 points."

And just so you know...

The Discovery Call is NOT a sales presentation in disguise.

There is no need to worry about signing up for anything. Consider this your chance to save a lot of time in researching and educating yourself. It took us seven years. There's no need for you to spend a fraction of that time.

We'll openly share everything during our Discovery Call.

Therefore, during the call you'll probably get many answers to questions you have had about your health situation but couldn't find the answers.

Is the call really Free?

Yes, we offer these calls for free because as you know from reading our story we were once in your shoes. We were absolutely desperate to help our daughter. And we would have jumped at any chance.

So How Do You Stay In Business
If You Give Everything Away Free?

Good question!

We do get new clients from these calls.

But the fact is, we don't need many clients to keep busy.

It's just the two of us (Barbara & Charlie). And since we work individually with everyone in the program, we can only accept 30 new clients a month.

We don't send our clients to some intern or rent-a-coach like some programs. You get us. 🙂

And If I Am Interested, What's The Price?

There are three different levels of the program depending on your personal needs. Pricing starts at about $1 a day.

There is a 12 month commitment because, although results begin quickly, lasting change takes time.

Clearly it’s not for someone looking for a short-term, temporary weight loss fix.

However, if you are ready for change, are coachable and are open to following “right” direction even if said direction conflicts with the advice you’ve followed in the past, then…

Go ahead and fill in your information below and we’ll schedule a time to talk ASAP.

Beating Diabetes With Science & Smarts

Diabetes is not only a heavy burden, but a slippery one too. The burden alone will eventually do us in, but it’s the slippery slope, the slow and steady worsening of our health and quality of life that is the insult to injury.
