Mind Body Plate

Is about reclaiming health and quality of life through reasonable weight loss supported by classes. ​

Start off following a ketogenic meal replacement meal plan to kick-start your weight loss. Then (when you're ready) gradually transition back to a simple and sustainable real food meal plan.

Classes are designed to help you every step of the way and to teach and grow your:

  •  stress management and mindfulness skills

  •  connection to daily activity

  •  knowledge of lower carb eating

More importantly, classes offer a community where you can find: support, guidance, accountability, fun, and friendships.


Classes are led by Madison-area wellness experts:

  • health psychologists

  • nutritionists 

  • health coaches

  • fitness experts

  • guest speakers

Guiding principles


Chronic stress leads to illness and obesity.

Mindfulness and stress reduction are skills that require training, practice, and support to become life-long health sustaining habits.

MBP teaches and explores mindfulness and stress management skills. Health psychologists, yoga, and mindfulness experts are frequent guest teachers at our classes.


Growing more fit is key at reclaiming and maintaining a healthier weight, a healthier mind, and improved mood. It's important to remember we are not born athletic.  We adapt to the life we lead. Time and practice will get you there.

MBP teaches fitness strategies and offers in-class yoga and chair yoga. We utilize SMART goal setting and follow-up to help you grow your level of activity and find what you love.


What we chose to eat and not to eat, along with our eating habits are absolutely vital to working with our bodies to reclaim and maintain health. Choosing more natural unprocessed food and minimizing simple carbs fits best with our genetic code.

We will always loose a war with food. Finding an ongoing healthy relationship with food is a better path.

Our Meal Replacement Path utilizes shakes and bars to hit the "pause button" on your food/eating habits and connections while achieving significant weight loss. Following this we guide you back to real food, simpler eating with an emphasis on healthier macro-nutrients (proteins, fats, carbs) and necessary micro/phytonutrients.

During our weekly and bi-weekly classes, we discuss what works and what hurts in our world of food. Area dietitians and nutritionists visit class regularly to discuss their perspectives, expertise, and insights.

Health and Quality of Life

Many studies have found that losing even 10% of total body weight results in significantly improved health and quality of life. You will likely lose more than 10% of your total body weight participating in Mind Body Plate. The end goal is to reclaim sustainable health at a reasonable weight, to feel better and live longer.

Support is the key to success

Mind Body Plate leaders are available before and after each class as well as on line to support and guide you as you lose weight and work toward  your goals.  We believe in the power of community. Our classes provide this. The friendships and camaraderie found in classes make losing weight more enjoyable and maintaining weight more achievable and realistic.

MBP is taking a break over the summer.
