Best You Plan: Men’s Beta
7-Week Online Nutrition Course
A Dietitian-Created Therapeutic Nutrition Plan Designed To Rewire Your Metabolism & Mindset.
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 was originally designed and “packaged” for women, but the principles for losing weight and gaining health apply to everyone! This Men’s Beta round is a chance for men to also experience their “Best You” as we continue to develop a program just for men.
The Best You Plan is only open several times a year. Enrollment is currently closed, so please get on the waitlist to hear about future rounds!
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.
BYP was the change agent that led me to think about food and consuming it differently, letting your digestive system work for you. Simple crock pot recipes right up a guy’s alley. You think my wife didn’t like that I am preparing meals? Eat this, not that. Great guidelines and advocacy! (Dave)
I just wanted to thank you quick for all the support and work you have put into this program. I have tried and failed at countless attempts of losing some weight and getting my diet under control, as well as type 2 diabetes. I still have further to go with my goals but in 7 short weeks your guidance and expertise took me from 200 blood sugars and feeling like a slug for lack of better terms to having more then enough energy, blood sugars averaging 85, and almost off meds! I can’t thank you enough for all that you do and have done! This has honestly been an amazing beginning to my lifestyle change. (Nathan)
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)
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’re scared of “eating plans” because they usually mean giving up your favorite foods and eating salads all the time.
Thankfully, the Best You Plan is based on foods that help your body burn FAT instead of CARBS for energy. This means that you’ll get to enjoy meat, cheese, healthy fats, and certain carbs. During the Lifestyle Phase of the program I teach you about specific days where we eat more carbohydrates. There’s a difference between eating them everyday, vs. once or twice a week.
You’re working out but not seeing results in your muscle mass and fitness.
It’s easy to think that becoming a “gym rat” will help you achieve your ideal physique. Actually, what you eat makes just as much difference. The Best You Plan gives step-by-step guidance for eating in a way that will help you burn fat, gain muscle, and build strength.
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.
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 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 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!
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. 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.
I am a teacher by profession and you used beautiful teaching strategies to help us learn how to be our Best You.” (Sue)
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 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.
Questions about Best You Plan?
Please submit your questions here if you need more information before you enroll. Thanks!
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]
