Is This You?

You've tried all the diets. You've bought the shakes, tried the supplements, counted calories, cut out whole food groups, and then some.

Still, the weight keeps creeping on. You might lose a few pounds here and there, but it always comes back.

You’re frustrated.

You aren’t happy with the way you feel and look.

You’ve heard about ‘keto’ but you’re not sure if it’s right for you. It seems complicated and a little scary. You might have even tried it, but it was kind of a disaster. Still, you’ve heard about some people having great success with it. You’d like to give it a try, but in a safe and ‘doable’ way.

Does that describe you?!?

If so, read on….we've had countless clients like you and we've been where you are! Trust us, there is a better way.

Where Are You Headed?

First, let us tell you what ISN'T the better way.

How long have we been hearing to eat less and move more?

Where has that gotten us? As a society, we get heavier and unhealthier every year. Diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and autoimmune diseases are all on the rise.


A different outcome requires a different APPROACH. For most people, the ketogenic diet IS the better way. It allows you to actually lose the weight....for good.

It also decreases inflammation and insulin resistance while preserving muscle mass. That means you're not just leaner at the end. You're also healthier.

How We Got Here

Trust us, we know this from both personal and clinical experience. Erin Skinner, the creator of Lean for Life, is a Registered Dietitian who helped people get healthier using a paleo diet for years. What she found is that sometimes that’s enough. However, often, it’s not.

Erin learned that sometimes the ketogenic diet is the only thing that really works. Since Erin started recommending it, she's used keto to help countless clients achieve weight loss breakthroughs and improved health.

In fact, that was the case for Erin herself. After baby #3, she couldn’t lose the last 10 pounds to save her life. She tried for months…she ate the perfect paleo diet. She cut out all sugar. She stopped drinking alcohol. She didn’t eat grains. For all that, she gained MORE weight.

That's when Erin decided to do what she had her clients do….30 days on a ketogenic diet. The results were amazing. She lost all of the baby weight, wasn’t hungry, and enjoyed eating delicious food.

When Erin started sharing her experience with others, she realized that many people were trying keto also.

However, they weren’t really doing it correctly and they weren’t getting the same results.

That’s when Erin realized that she needed to provide a place where people could learn the correct approach: the one that provides the same amazing results that her clients and her get!

What Keto Does

In short, a ketogenic diet causes your body to switch from using carbohydrates for energy to using fat instead. You become a ‘fat burner’, meaning that you’re using fat as your fuel source.

  • This switch causes blood sugar to regulate and our cells to become more sensitive to insulin (that’s the opposite of type 2 diabetes).
  • It also reduces inflammation because the ketones produced by fat metabolism have an anti-inflammatory effect. This further improves insulin resistance, cravings, joint pain, brain fog, and energy.
  • Finally, ketones have an appetite-suppressing effect. Between this and the lack of blood sugar swings, keto makes it much easier to eat less calories than what we need each day.

The result: you burn body fat to make up the difference. This is really the ‘magic’ of the ketogenic diet: where other diets give you extreme cravings and hunger, keto makes you feel energetic and satisfied.

For this reason, many people who have struggled their WHOLE LIVES to lose weight can ONLY do so on a ketogenic diet!

How To Get Keto Results

Although keto is incredibly effective and powerful, there are a LOT of ways to go wrong. As keto has become more popular, we're seeing more and more mistakes being made. As a result, people are getting frustrated and giving up.

No! You can do better.

We've laid out the A-to-Z blueprint for how to execute the ketogenic diet WELL. We also include a Facebook group community where we'll be present DAILY to support and answer your questions.

So, don’t miss your chance. Join LFL Refine now and start getting life-changing results!

Adrianne's Story

Let us give you one example of how powerful a well-executed ketogenic diet can be. We have a client named Adrianne who came to us at age 36 years old, 50 pounds overweight, with joint pain, and with a warning from her doctor that she was pre-diabetic (blood sugar too high).

Adrianne had battled her weight her whole life and tried ‘all of the diets’ with no success. She would lose 20 pounds then gain it right back…plus a couple more.

Even more concerning was the fact that she would occasionally have uncontrollable bingeing episodes where she would eat uncontrollably, until she was practically sick. Adrianne had even tried a paleo diet, but it seemed to make her cravings even worse.

We recognized Adrianne’s blood sugar imbalances as a likely cause of her cravings. So, we recommended the best diet for improving blood sugar levels and insulin resistance: keto. We coached her through how to follow the diet CORRECTLY and I kept in touch with her to answer questions and provide support.

Within 3 months, Adrianne was down to a healthy weight and was free of cravings and bingeing!

Needless to say, she was elated. We then helped to transition her onto a maintenance diet and she has maintained her results for over a year.

Ketogenic diets are powerful and effective. However, doing it correctly is absolutely essential, for both safety and for getting life-changing results.

Lean for Life Success Stories

"I lost 10 pounds, reduced snacking, better sleep. Valuable information, it helped me get back on track to lose weight. Very sensible diet. Easy to follow. "


"I lost at least 6 pounds.. only weighed once after the first 2 weeks. I have more energy and am sleeping better."


"I am sleeping better, less cravings and feel better"


"I didn't weigh myself to start, so I'm not sure - but at least a couple of pounds lost. I am definitely a lot less bloated. I fit into my clothes better. I feel much more energetic. I haven't been hungry outside of mealtimes. I've also been much more upbeat."


"I lost 10 pounds not as puffy or bloated feeling"


"Sleeping is so much better! I think everyone should do this"


"I lost 9.5 lbs. I didn’t take measurements before, but can already feel clothes a little looser. Prior to the plan, I was having acid reflux often and that stopped completely. I feel much better eating this way and this program was a good reset for me."


"Having recently completed the Lean for Life program I can tell you there are no easier options. You have both a recipe based option, all of which are straightforward and come with a shopping list! The other option was a sheet to check off and meet goals in certain categories. I have never seen a program that was as easy and really sets you up for success during and after the program!"


"I lost about 5 lbs. my appetite is better and I have more energy "

Am I a good fit for keto?

If you have extra weight that you can't seem to lose, inflammation, joint pain, fatigue, brain fog, high blood pressure and/or high blood sugar, you're a great fit. However, if you are under weight, have a history of an eating disorder, struggle with electrolyte balance, have dysregulated stress hormones ('adrenal fatigue'), are pregnant or breastfeeding, or are extremely physically active, you might not be a good fit. Please get in touch if you're not sure, and we'll give you an honest answer!

I already tried keto! Is it worth joining?

YES! Many people don't do keto correctly and healthfully when they first start. Here's what we include to optimize your results:

  • Quick-Start Guides for starting keto easily, healthfully, correctly, and effectively
  • 4 weeks of specific meal plans. One week of meal plans is a 'minimal cook' easy option for people who don't want to cook recipes.
  • Dairy-free keto guidance and meal plan
  • Added info on artificial sweeteners and sugar alcohols, and how they fit in.
  • Our time-tested keto supplement protocol, with several options based on gender and age

The other main reason to re-join is the support! You have access to us via Facebook group or email for any questions or troubleshooting that you need help with.

You'll also benefit from the momentum and accountability that comes from being a part of a group program. For this low price, it's worth joining just for the better consistency and results you'll get from being in the group!
