Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to buy anything?
There are no additional fees, no hidden fees and no obligations to continue after the 5 days. 
What happens after the 5 days?
The goal of this 5-day Accelerator is to jumpstart sustainable weight loss in the pursuit of better health. Pending availability, Dr. Scott may offer access to his premium course for those who wish to continue under his guidance. For the sake of clarity, there is no obligation to continue after the 5-day Weight Loss Accelerator.  
Is this a big sales pitch?
The 5-day Weight Loss Accelerator Challenge is designed to work with whatever health plan you're currently on and accelerate those results. The advice Dr Scott gives is as a doctor, however he is not your doctor. Prior to making any changes to your health plan, we recommend consulting your physician.
What is my iFactor exactly?
Your iFactor represents the response of insulin in your body. Insulin is a natural, necessary hormone that helps your body process sugars and carbohydrates. The problem in our culture is that our diet has led our organs and tissues becoming resistant to insulin—causing a high iFactor. The higher your iFactor, the more resistance you have to insulin, the more you will gain weight, and the harder it is to lose. By fixing your iFactor, you can restore your normal insulin function, lose weight...and KEEP IT OFF.
Who leads the daily iFactor sessions?
Dr. Ries will be guiding you daily with a challenge in the morning followed by a LIVE Q&A in the afternoon helping to ensure your success in fixing your iFactor to achieve the weight and health you have been hoping for.
When will I have access to the iFactor Accelerator?
Your iFactor experience will begin as soon as you register! You will receive an email from Dr Ries with all the instructions needed to get started on this life changing experience. The kick-off for the course is August 24 and continues until August 28, however you'll have a chance to get to know Dr Ries and your fellow iFactor participants prior to the start of the 5-day course. 
Can’t I just purchase a book and figure this out myself?
Don't underestimate the high cost of failure with that approach. The support of a live program and caring community can make a massive difference. In addition to bringing the cost down, it still allows me to answer your questions, and has opened up the ability to offer a support group of others to also encourage you on your journey. 
Can you explain what's included? 
The FREE accelerator includes your workbook, daily challenges, daily live Q&A, a wildly encouraging community, a chance to win prizes and giveaways. In comparison, a 15-20 minute visit with Dr Ries would cost you $120.

There is no catch. Dr. Ries wants to make an impact in the lives of many who desire better health. If you decide to continue the journey and join his premium program you can, however it's 100% optional. 
How much weight should I expect to lose?
Each person will vary in the amount and speed of weight loss. The important thing is not how fast you lose weight...but how well you fix your iFactor. 
Will I have to exercise with the iFactor program?
While exercise is indeed an important part of healthy living over the long is not necessary for effective weight loss. In fact, if you start an exercise program at the same time you start modifying your eating patterns, you may actually increase your chance of failure! Once your iFactor has begun to correct, we recommend very basic, achievable activity as a supplement. But not at first.
I already have diabetes. It is too late for me to fix my iFactor?
No! While you are further down the iFactor dysfunction road, you are not without hope! Diabetes, in many people, is indeed reversible. If you control your diabetes with diet alone, no problem. You will just join like everyone else. If you are on medication or insulin injections, I strongly recommend you discuss with your doctor your desire to take the iFactor journey. Explain to her or him that the iFactor Plan is not a severe calorie restriction, but rather a dietary lifestyle modification with expected gradual, sustainable weight loss. They will advise you on specific blood sugar monitoring and any medication adjustments needed. And they will probably be thrilled with your progress!
