Best You Plan
7-Week Online Nutrition Course
A Dietitian-Created Therapeutic Nutrition Plan Designed To Rewire Your Metabolism & Mindset.
Get on the waitlist to hear about the next round.
Life is more fun when we feel our very best.
That’s why I finally sat down and put my years of nutrition work on paper in the form of an online nutrition program! Because I wanted to help you feel like your best you.
The Best You Plan Is For You If...
Your metabolism feels stuck, despite everything you’ve tried. You can’t lose weight and even feel like you are gaining!
The Best You Plan gets to the root cause of WHY the metabolism is slow and stubborn. All the nutrition and diet programs out there are just re-packaged calorie-controlled diets. Simply lowering your calories or counting your fat grams doesn’t work long-term. If you are looking to truly lose weight and actually keep it off, you must breakdown the hormonal resistance that is blocking your metabolism. Body fat loss isn’t a math equation problem (calories in minus calories out), it’s a hormonal issue. When certain hormones are elevated in our body, it makes us store fat no matter what we do.
The Best You Plan works! I have tried Weight Watchers, South Beach, Whole 30, etc. And while I was able to lose weight, I was not able to maintain. I have been following Katie’s plan for just under a year, and I can honestly say it’s the easiest plan I’ve ever done and it has been a no brainer to commit to make this a lifestyle. I’ve learned to feed my body the fuel it needs, while still enjoying food, but not feeling the need to over consume.
After having kids (the youngest is 13), I never lost the baby weight, and instead continued to gain. Thanks to the Best You Plan I have lost 70 lbs and over 50 inches! I’ve gone from a size 18 in pants to a size 6/8. A size XL in shirts to a size S. At my annual physical recently, my doctor eliminated the problem area of “obese” off my chart!
Beyond these great things, I feel amazing! I have an ankle injury requiring 2 surgeries that has healed faster than anticipated. I’ve been told to actually slow down and take it easy! Hard to do when you finally have energy to do things and want to be doing things!!
It’s amazing looking back at pictures of myself. I knew I was overweight, but got used to the way I felt and looked. When I took charge of my health last year, I’ve been just wowed with the transformation! Even at this weight pre-kids, I was not this size – I’m smaller! In the picture with the dress, I just loved how it looked on me that I had my daughter take a picture! It may not be not the best to see the total transformation but it made me feel so Happy! The other pictures my journey thus far: Christmas party for work Dec 2017, and BYP starting pics May 2018.
Thank you Katie!”
And here’s what others say…
I lost 18.5 inches and 13 pounds in the seven weeks and feel prepared to keep going” (Tiffaney)
I was able to lose weight but also inches. I am down 23 lbs. in the 7 weeks” (Jessica)
I have truly lost BODY FAT in the most difficult places for MY body; places that I’ve never seen decrease in inches. I’ve seen the best results on BYP than any diet I’ve been on.” (Sara)
I have lost 14 pounds in 7 weeks and am down two sizes. BYP took all the guess work out of getting healthy!” (Mary)
The Best You Plan (BYP) has been life changing for me. After 7 short weeks, I have lost 8 pounds and several inches of body fat.” (Jodi)
You hate dieting because you’re always starving and feel so restricted.
Dieting is the worst. Dieting is unnatural. It teaches you to ignore your hunger signals and restrict food. Dieting doesn’t fix why we are struggling with our metabolism in the first place, it just makes us feel guilty if we eat something “off plan.” I don’t believe in feeling guilty over our food choices and I don’t believe traditional diets work. If they did, we wouldn’t have so many of us struggling with our metabolisms.
This program has been the best program I have ever been on. This not a diet, it is truly a lifestyle change and it’s one that is not hard to do. I don’t feel deprived, I don’t feel hungry and I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything.”
You don’t want to eat out of containers, log your food, count points, or drink meal-replacements.
Great! Me either! I like delicious food and certainly don’t want to have to weigh and measure what I’m eating. What if I’m still hungry after I finish what my pre-portioned container told me to eat? What if I’m still hungry after my “points” run out for the day? No thanks. The Best You Plan isn’t going to make you log your calories or macros. You learn to eat until you are satisfied and listen to your body. How freeing is that? Bye, dieting.
My husband and I started a Keto style of eating April 2018. There is way too much confusing information out there. I was so happy to enroll in the BYP to be put on solid foundation that works,is healthy and can continue as a lifestyle. We made our weight loss goals. Me 50 lbs and Him 60. We are working on maintaining. I don’t feel restricted and remember that it’s what we do the majority of the time that counts. We are both in our 60’s and thrilled with the weight loss for health and appearance.”
And here’s what others say…
The plan is realistic, sustainable, and there are no precooked meals to purchase or points to count. You eat real food and the recipes Katie provides are delicious and so satisfying! My family has loved them – even the kids!!” (Jodi)
You are nervous to start another program because you can’t ever eat the same foods your family does.
I created the Best You Plan with family meals in mind. The recipes are my own and are things I feed my family. They aren’t anything fancy or over the top. Just lots of delicious food that everyone can enjoy! Plus, there are always alternate meal options in case you don’t like something listed.
Thank you for making this plan for the everyday family that just wants to eat, feel, and BE healthy” (Jessica)
“My family enjoys all the meals that I make on this plan. I don’t have to feel like I’m making meals for me then everyone else. Everything is outlined, easy to follow.” (Kate)
You want to live a healthier lifestyle but you’re so addicted to sugar and carbohydrates that you don’t think you’ll be able to do it.
I used to be a sugar addict. I didn’t just “enjoy” sugar, it controlled me. I used to live in a world of eating low-fat foods and trying to diet. My brain became obsessed with sugar and carbohydrates. I thought it was just who I was as a person, my personality. I thought, “Oh, I just have a really serious sweet tooth!” No, my body and brain were imbalanced and they were driving me to eat sugar. I can truly say I don’t have sugar cravings anymore. The Best You Plan will help you crush your sugar cravings. Sugar cravings aren’t a willpower problem, they are a biochemical problem.
I knew I was fully addicted to sugar and I can’t believe that I’ve been away from it for a week! With your plan it has been an easier transition than I would have ever thought.” (Ali)
I have never felt so in control of my eating in my entire life! I always wondered how some people could just not want sweets or carbs- or crave them constantly. I feel like I have hit the magic jackpot! (Kathy)
You’re unsure about the low carb component of the program.
In the middle of the program we have a period of low carb eating as part of our targeted approach. This isn’t because I believe carbohydrate foods are unhealthy for us, but it’s because many of the women I work with have something called insulin resistance. Lowering our carbohydrates for a time period helps break this insulin resistance. Don’t worry, the “Lifestyle Phase” of the program teaches you how to add healthy carbohydrates back into your healthy eating patterns.
You need a plan that also helps you get healthier.
I firmly believe the correct nutrition plan should first and foremost create health in the body. From there, the metabolism shifts start to follow. I created the Best You Plan to produce powerful health changes in your body. Many have noted decreased inflammation, reduced blood pressure and blood sugars, reduced aches and pains, better sleep, improved moods, better digestive systems and so much more!
I started my journey with BYP in the May 14th, 2018 round. I’m a pretty private person but because BYP has changed my life so much inside and out I feel I need to give a testimony to how great this program is. The results have been amazing as I have been someone who has struggled with my weight and yo-yo dieting for years!
I had Inbody scans through my gym a couple of times since starting BYP. My body fat percentage has gone from 22.5% to 17.2% without a decrease in muscle mass (Diets where calories are restricted people lose muscle mass). I have lost 19 lbs since the start and I have gone from a size 11/12 pant to a 5/6 and m/L shirt to s/xs. I haven’t been this size since maybe early high school and that was almost a few decades ago!
I also feel like a totally different person. I have level moods, no more PMS, and sleep soundly. I also tell my husband that I feel like the energizer bunny because I always have so much energy and focus! BYP is the easiest thing I have ever done. It is so adaptable to everyday life. Even after having major shoulder surgery this past October, I have still been able to easily maintain the BYP lifestyle during my recovery. BYP is food freedom with no failure or guilt!!
My family also loves many of the keto meals and snacks. My ten year old daughter even said to me “if eating keto always tastes this good I want to do it all the time too!” Thank you so much Katie for creating BYP! I have finally found my freedom with food!!”
And here’s what others say…
No more fatigue or brain fog. What an amazing feeling!” (Mary)
I am sleeping better than I have in years. My aches and pains are gone. My cravings are gone. I have great energy. My blood sugars have normalized, and my hormones feel more balanced. The BYP is UNLIKE any plan I have been on over the past 20 years – and, I have tried most of them out there!! It is an all-encompassing health and wellness plan that teaches participants how to be the best version of themselves by shifting their perspective and creating a lifestyle that promotes positive mindset and healthy eating habits.” (Jodi)
You are nervous about intermittent fasting.
Don’t be! You’ll learn to absolutely love it. I walk you through how to incorporate intermittent fasting into your lifestyle, but do it in a way that is healthy. The key is to make sure you are eating ENOUGH food during the eating window. I show you how to ease your body into it and how to do it correctly. You’ll soon realize that intermittent fasting is easy to do and very freeing.
Prior to this, I had never fasted, but feel the intermittent fasting is doable and effective.” (Kathy)
Intermittent Fasting, I could write an entire page on how much I have enjoyed incorporating this in! It’s doable, easy, I feel less stressed, less preparing of food and washing dishes, all while giving my digestive system a rest and breaking down body fat!” (Sara)
You hate all the food prep and dishes that come with trying to eat better.
Raise your hand if you are burnt out on preparing and shopping for 3 meals plus an additional 2-3 snacks a day!? The Best You Plan shows you how to eat more satisfying meals so you don’t have to eat constantly throughout the day. Despite popular opinion, eating every 2-3 hours doesn’t rev up your metabolism. It actually keeps your metabolism in a fat storage state. Giving your body breaks between meals helps ramp up fat-burning hormones.
You’re tired of spending money on things that don’t help.
I’m tired of it for you!! One of the driving forces behind me creating the Best You Plan is that I was sick and tired of the diet industry pushing their failed nutrition philosophies and products on people. I knew I needed to take my knowledge as a dietitian and create a program that ACTUALLY HELPS! And the Best You Plan was born. You know what else is great? When you purchase the program it’s yours for life! You don’t have to spend a monthly subscription on products or memberships. You get a program that teaches you and empowers you to make a lifestyle switch that’s sustainable. Most people have said they ultimately end up saving money after starting the program because they learn to grocery shop, create healthy meals and eat out less.
You just want to (finally!) learn how to eat, not be hooked on programs or products forever.
I want that for you! My goal is to help you understand the nutrition concepts and the WHY behind the Best You Plan eating guides. I want you to feel well-equipped to move forward on your lifestyle once the plan is complete. Don’t forget, you’ll always have your online portal to go back to. You can re-read the lessons, look up the recipes, or watch the videos.
The BYP has changed my life. Last Spring I was diagnosed with a painful autoimmune condition and knew that I needed to make changes that would affect my health positively. I had heard about the great benefits of Katie’s BYP from 4 different family members. I started in July and amazed how great I felt. Many issues that I dealt with often cleared up: acne, stomach pains, IBS, sleeplessness, and allergies improved. I had to buy all new clothing as the inches fell off and the inflammation reduced. My confidence increased and I loved having my photo taken again.
Intermittent Fasting has been a great addition to my routine, it’s given me the freedom to not graze all day long and know that there are times to eat and times to fast. My cravings, mid-afternoon munchies, and sluggishness has decreased greatly.” — Christine
And here’s what others say…
Even though the 7 week program officially ended, I easily made my meal plan for next week, following what I have learned so that I will continue to make progress.” (Tiffaney)
What Women Are Saying
No more fatigue or brain fog.
I have so much more energy!
I’m enjoying everything I eat
It’s a sustainable way of life
More About Best You Plan
Is Best You Plan for Women Only?
The Best You Plan is designed for women. However, we have a Men’s course in the works! See more information here.
What Makes the Best You Plan Different?
Life is more fun when we feel our very best. That’s why I finally sat down and put my years of nutrition work on paper in the form of an online nutrition program! Because I wanted to help you feel like your best you.
The Best You Plan is the marriage of my years of being a dietitian, individual nutrition counseling and nutrition research. I’ve put together the nutrition concepts that have worked for my clients and removed the ones that haven’t. Since 80-90% of the women who have come to me have had a goal of weight loss, this program is designed to help women do just that. It’s not about getting a 6-pack. It’s about figuring out why your metabolism is stuck.
Another key element of the Best You Plan is to help you with your mindset because you need to recognize your worth isn’t tied to a number on the scale. It’s not the same old tired nutrition advice that really doesn’t help solve the stubborn metabolism. It’s a program that teaches you a way to eat that is sustainable for life.
What You Get
The program is 7 weeks long. The first week is Foundation Week. Here we will set goals, talk about our mindset, and get ready for the weeks ahead. The first week does not contain a specific meal plan but some general nutrition concepts to start preparing you.
You will receive 6 weeks of meal plans, recipes and grocery guides that I have personally created to coordinate with my specialized nutrition plan. I’ve taken all the guess work out! You just follow the plan.
Concepts such as intermittent fasting and nutritional ketosis (“keto”) will be used. During the last phase, the “Lifestyle Phase” I will show you how and when to add carbohydrates back into your life based on where you are at. My goal is to teach you how to listen to your body and not feel like you are dieting. Diets don’t work.
- You will be invited to an online accountability group on Facebook with the other women who are in your same round of the Best You Plan. Within the group you can ask questions, encourage each other, and watch the videos that I post meant to educate, encourage, and answer your questions.
- There will be opportunities to submit questions to the “Ask Katie” sessions. This is where I will come on LIVE on our Facebook page and answer questions you submitted. Some people choose to replay this and treat it like a podcast.
- Weekly emails will prompt you to open up your portal and discuss what to expect for the week.
- Weekly videos will be posted in your online portal every Monday discussing the nutrition goals and concepts of the week
- Each week has several different nutrition lessons designed to educate you on the WHY behind the nutrition methods of the plan.
- All of the lessons are in a format you can read in the lesson format and/or listen to an audio format.
- You will gain access to an online portal where you will receive your documents weekly.
- Once you purchase the program, you will have access to the program for life
What the Best You Plan **Is Not**
- It’s not about calories and counting – it’s about learning nutrition concepts.
- It’s no about food fear – I want to help you work a plan that makes you feel your best and break away from dieting.
- It’s not about feeling deprived and restricted
- It’s not about dieting and feeling like you are eating cardboard
- It’s not a bunch of products you need to buy from me – it’s just a sound nutrition approach you can learn and use to change your life.
- My goal is to provide you with EDUCATION and KNOWLEDGE so you can walk away from the program and feel confident in your food choices.
What the Best You Plan **Is**
The program is designed to help shift your metabolism from being in a constant sugar-burning state and move towards being in a fat-burning state. When this happens our moods feel stable, we have great energy, and we start to use fat for energy.
We tackle the real reasons behind a stuck metabolism: hormones.
We use real food, nutritional ketosis (ketogenic eating) and periods of intermittent fasting to break the hormonal blocks on your metabolism. As a dietitian, I see a lot of people trying to do “keto” but not doing it correctly. The right approach helps the body heal and shifts the metabolism.
During the last phase, the “Lifestyle Phase” we discuss different Lifestyle Plans that you can incorporate and create an ongoing lifestyle change. I want you to find something that specifically works for YOU! It’s about YOUR Best You. Not your neighbor’s Best You. There is no one size fits all with nutrition.
Use food to get rid of sugar cravings and learn how to eat to satiety instead of getting hung up on counting everything.
I want to help you feel your very best! This means I want you to heal your metabolism and revive your health. I want to help teach you a way of eating that will get you there.
It’s a program that is based on solid scientific research and coupled with my years of nutrition counseling and clinical experience.

Hey there! My name is Katie Vigesaa.
I get what it’s like to struggle with your metabolism. You see, I’m not one of those naturally thin nutritionists. The ones that tell you to eat how they eat because well, they are thin, and the assumption is if you eat like they do, then you too, will be thin. That’s just not how the science of a stubborn metabolism works.
Looking back, I think my stubborn metabolism has been a blessing — because it has helped me understand the science behind WHY the metabolism gets blocked and WHAT to do about it. My stubborn metabolism has allowed me to put together a plan to help YOU unstick yours!
I’m a registered dietitian, wife, and mom of 2 little girls. I am also the creator of the Best You Plan (BYP), an online nutrition program I designed to re-wire the metabolism and mindset around food.
Outside of that, I am a really big fan of good coffee (Dunn Bros. girl for life!) Fresh flowers are my love language, and I really don’t know how I truly lived before realizing eggs and bacon were part of a healthy diet. We have backyard chickens and you can bet I someday dream of having a small hobby farm, complete with a goat or 2.
As a woman who has struggled with her metabolism most of her life, I can relate to how it feels to be overweight on a very personal and emotional level… [Read More]
