Frequently Asked Questions

What is The Summit System?

The Summit System is an all-natural, hormone-balancing weight loss program that coaches you to lose weight, lower inflammation, AND address your relationship with food.


The Summit System is a 3 phase weight loss program that utilizes real food, accountability coaches and supplements to help you lose weight and keep it off.

What are the phases of the program?

Phase I - This is the initial 28 day gateway program that coaches you to lose up to 10% of your body weight. Phase 1 is a program approach, which means you will follow an approved food list (real food from the grocery store), a particular meal plan and take medical grade supplements to help your body naturally reset. We call this the gateway program because it jumpstarts your metabolism, ignites your motivation and lays the foundation for sustainability.

Phase II - This is a 4 month program that guides you through the process of integrating foods back into your daily diet while you continue to lose weight. Through weekly meetings with your coach you will begin to build variety, engage in more cognitive choice around food and food related experiences while learning how to turn "diet rules" into lifelong principles. Sustainability is discovered along the way.

*Note- Phase 2 is repeated as needed.

Phase III - This is a customized option for those who are ready to execute mostly on their own.

Will I have to come to weekly weigh-ins or meetings at your office?

No, your initial consultation will be done either at a coffee shop or via Zoom call and the rest of your program will be handled virtually.

Will I need to do bloodwork?

Up to you! Truth be told, we speak to people daily whose bloodwork is "normal" and yet they know their hormones are part of the problem. We understand how frustrating this is AND we also understand why this happens (this is part of what we discuss during our initial call/consultation).


Bloodwork is optional. However, we do suggest you take the Summit Initial Hormone Assessment with Ashley Ramsey at TotalCare.

How much is the program?

The Summit System is a 5 month commitment that includes both Phase I & Phase II for $2,060. For more information on what's included in the program, click HERE.
