What is the Sensable Health program?

Sensable Health is a wellness program delivered via a comprehensive app, that incorporates biology and behavior to achieve sustainable weight loss and improved overall wellbeing.

This 26-week program was designed to help people scientifically and intelligently lose weight — long term.

How do I get started?

Our Program is designed around the scientifically proven concept of “Set Point,” a metabolism regulator that we all have and keep our weight steady. Sensable Health begins with a baseline questionnaire, Lab Testing (optional) and setting up your compatible Fitbit or Apple watch and Fitbit Aria 2 Scale. Then, you will begin a 2-week baseline period, to see how you function on a daily basis in the four Domains of Stress, Nutrition, Sleep, and Activity. This information will be used to develop a personalized weight loss approach over the next 22 weeks. Each participant will start with one Domain (say Nutrition) for 5 weeks, then add another Domain (say Activity) for another 4 or 5 weeks, until you are engaged in all 4 Domains. Staying on track with the program will allow you to attain long-term, sensible results. Watch this video for more information.

How do the lab tests work?

Although Lab Testing is not required, we highly recommend this step in the program. It’s our best way of determining the factors that go into your metabolic health. For those who choose to have Lab Testing as part of the initial baseline determination, we will gather information about your hormonal balance from a set of lab results) lipids (cholesterol and triglycerides), HbA1c (blood sugar), hs-CRP (inflammation), and cortisol (stress). Cortisol will be measured with saliva and the others with a blood draw at a convenient local lab. We will determine several of your metabolic levels and guide you along a unique path towards adjusting your set point to help you lose weight and keep it off.

We’ll use your lab results, along with your intake questionnaire and the data from your two-week baseline data collection period to craft a personalized weight loss Plan just for you.

Again, for those who choose to have lab testing, at approximately 15 weeks after the program starts, Sensable Health will ask you to visit a convenient Quest Diagnostics lab. The purpose of this testing is to determine how your metabolism and hormones have changed from all you have done up to that point. Your coach will set up a call with you to go over the results and, if needed, suggest modifications to your plan for the rest of the program.

How does the program work?

After you’ve completed the onboarding steps (see above How Do I Get Started?), you’ll be placed on a 22-week customized weight loss program. You’ll use the Sensable Health iPhone/Android app to log nutrition, activity, sleep and stress information and track your progress against your program goals. The app will display your sleep and activity data made available through compatible Fitbit or Apple devices. Food logging in the app, powered by Nutritionix, helps you track what you eat and make healthful food choices. We’ll monitor your stress with a daily check-in survey. You’ll interact with the app through daily logging, quizzes and surveys, personalized messages with goals, reminders, motivational texts, and helpful suggestions. The app will send specialized content, including educational videos and articles, motivational messages and helpful suggestions to guide you through the program and help you understand the four domains and how they relate to changing your Set Point and your health.

For a high-touch experience, you will have a personal coach who will guide you through the 26-week program, answering questions, giving you support and guidance as you make your way down the transformative path. There will be 9 scheduled phone calls throughout the program. Additional coaching can be purchased, as you would like.
