Tips for Success

How can I be successful in the Betr Program?

Here at Betr, we aim to be Betr - not perfect. We have observed some healthy habits that will support you in reaching your goals!

This article will outline some simple tips to ensure your struggle-free success in this program.


1. Log your weight, meals, water, and activity every day.

Logging is essential to our coaches being able to personalize your Betr experience. They use your food pictures, symptoms, and weight gain or loss to make suggestions and adjustments to maximize your success. The more information you provide your coach, the more they can help you reach your goals!

 Many of our members find that logging is a great way to listen to their bodies and stay mindful of their food choices.


2. Join the Betr Community Online.

You are not alone! Visit the Community tab in your app and see posts from others all over the country participating in Betr. Betr Community members exchange encouragement, support, and inspiring pictures of progress and meals.


3. Read the daily articles.

In the Discover tab, you will find short and straightforward articles with helpful information and education related to your stage of the protocol. To access these articles in Discover, select Betr Program on the left sidebar, then your protocol Level. If you are viewing these article from your mobile app, click the three horizontal lines on the top left to expand the Discover menu.

We encourage you to read one article a day while moving through Level 1. It’s a great way to get in a Betr mindset! Some people like to include this in their morning routine while they sip coffee or tea.


4. Plan your meals.

A little forethought into what you are going to eat can go a long way towards your Betr success.

In the Community, navigate to the “Prep-Phase” space (under “Protocol”). The “Building a weekly meal plan” contains a printable worksheet to plan your meals.

Betr has a library of over two hundred delicious Level 1 Recipes if you enjoy cooking.

If you’re more of a freestyle artist at the stove, get familiar with the Level 1 Food list and make sure to stock the pantry with lots of Level 1-approved ingredients!

 And of course, if you prefer to leave the cooking to the professionals, the Betr Meal Delivery service has your back! We’ll deliver your choice of affordable, family-friendly, 5-star chef recipes.


5. Eat intuitively.

Betr does not utilize calorie counting or strict weighing/measuring of portions. We encourage you to listen to your body. If you are hungry, then eat. If you are satisfied, then stop. 

As long as you choose foods off the Level One food list and aim for 75% fruits and vegetables and 25% protein, you can eat as much as you want! Not eating enough Betr-approved foods is more likely to interfere with weight loss or other goals than overeating!


6. Ask for help.

We want you to get the most accurate answers as quickly as possible. If you feel stuck, confused, or in need of help in any way - the best options are to reach out to Ask Us by clicking the icon in the bottom right corner of the screen or email

Of course, you can ask your coach any questions, but because they check in with you once daily, they may not be able to get you answers promptly. 

We request that you refrain from asking fundamental questions about Betr on the Community. These answers don’t come directly from the Betr Team and could be inaccurate.


7. Let it be easy. 

The best results come when we aren’t too hard on ourselves and enjoy the process.

We encourage you to rest and avoid strenuous activities for the first few days. Focus on the nourishment you provide your body and use downtime to relax by reading your daily article, meditating, or another enjoyable, calming activity.

And don’t feel like you are giving up things you enjoy! Use the Betr Guide to Eating Out to stay on plan when enjoying your favorite local eatery.

 Betr is not about “giving things up”- it’s about getting a new, healthy lifestyle and learning how to enjoy life the way it’s meant to be enjoyed! Betr is here to provide you with all of the resources you need to live a happy, healthy, Betr life!
