“To be honest, I never thought that positive encouragement would help me lose weight. But every week Meg’s coach would tell us we could do it and over time our taste buds and cravings changed. I went from eating huge bowls of sugary cereal every day for breakfast, to craving spinach with an egg on top. I never thought I would like that.”

“I stopped begging for unhealthy foods at the grocery store. Now I beg for fruit instead,” Rebecca exclaims proudly! “If I pick a red light, it is one of my favorite red lights. If we eat a red light one day, we say no to a different red light later on in the week. And if we know we have something coming up at the end of the week, like a party, we eat less reds at the start of the week.”

“Since he knows how to read a food label, I see him consciously putting down red light foods in the snack section of the supermarket. That’s exciting to see as a parent.”

“When I started doing cross-country I really didn’t want to do it, because I knew it would be tiring. I didn’t exercise a lot at the time. But Coach Jonathan motivated me to try something new and stick to it. Once I got into running and started running more, I made a lot of friends on the team and got faster and faster. Now, I love to run!”

“I was eating a lot of reds before! Now I only have about 3 reds a day!  It was hard in the beginning, but knowing how many reds I could have each week and having a goal really helped.”

“I don’t have to police him because Kurbo stepped in, which has let him manage himself. It is nice to not have to meddle or nag him,” said Xander’s mom Terry.

“Knowing that both of us were working toward a common goal only strengthened our relationship. We have both tried to get healthier before but we were never synchronized in our health efforts. Now that we are doing it together and are on the same page, we can fully support each other. That was really what strengthened our relationship.”

“My employer offered Kurbo as a benefit and after researching it further, it seem like a good solution for us. It’s very important we maintain a healthy weight as a family,” said Jillian’s mom Dionne

“I read all the recipes and tips that Kurbo sent. What I liked about the program was that it was a good balance between exercise and food, and I used that balance to shape my own habits. I also used Coach Zoe’s summary reports to initiate changes in the house for both my son and myself.”

“I’m realizing that a lot of foods I thought were healthy actually aren’t. I’ve been experimenting a lot in the kitchen to cook more healthy foods.”

“One of the things I love about Kurbo is that because I have a red light budget, it forces me to eat red lights. When you are a chronic dieter, you think ‘Okay I’m being good right now so I can’t have anything bad,’ but Kurbo expects that you will have drinks with girlfriends and nachos at the game. The difference is that I’m thinking about when I want to make those choices,”

“Before Kurbo, I would say, ‘hey that looks yummy let’s buy it, let’s buy the entire dessert aisle, and all of the Oreos!’ Now we just go get milk, eggs, vegetables and fruit. We still have sweet stuff, but even the sweet stuff is healthier than what we’d had before because we have learned how to analyze labels.”

“If you eat more green lights you will feel better and want to be active! If you have dogs, you might as well bring them too so they can get exercise. My dog is a lot happier now that I am doing Kurbo because he gets to exercise with me all the time!”

“Today I feel good. Actually, I feel great. I’ve been getting more exercise, I’ve lost more weight, and I eat better. Another thing is that my clothes fit better now. I used to wear husky pants, but now I don’t. Every time I get dressed and look in the mirror, I know that I am getting closer and closer to my weight loss goal and that keeps me motivated.”

“I love my Kurbo Coach! Her name is Monica. The second I started talking to her she was even more excited about my journey than I was. She tells me that I inspire her, which is such a nice thing to hear from someone you look up to.”

Is weight loss for kids common with Kurbo?

While weight loss for kids is very common with Kurbo, it is not always the main objective. At Kurbo, we focus on building healthy habits and changing behaviors. By teaching and encouraging kids to make healthier choices, they form better habits which lead to longer lasting results. In a study where 500 kids completed a 12-week Kurbo program, 8 out of 10 reported weight loss. Learn more about kid’s weight loss with Kurbo program here.

How does Kurbo health coaching help children lose weight?

Kurbo health coaching helps children lose weight by building healthy habits through the use of a mobile app and personal coach. With the mobile app, children are able to track their food choices using our Traffic Light System (which is based on 30 years of research at Stanford) that classifies food by green, yellow and red lights, making it easy for kids to do themselves. Their personal coach will help explain this system, set personalized goals and partner with kids to think through strategies to help them succeed. Our Kurbo coaches are highly trained to offer personalized supportive accountability to clients, ensuring that each kid has a partner to troubleshoot roadblocks that might arise that are preventing them from meeting their goals.

Is Kurbo for adults too?

Many adults have done the Kurbo Program, either with their children or on their own. Over 8 out of 10 adults lose weight on the Kurbo Program. Adults use the program for general health coaching, to exercise more, to develop better eating habits, and to live a healthier life. Our health coaches are trained to work with both men and women.
