How It Works

On Kurbo, you can eat stuff you love. Just follow the traffic lights!

Green

Green light foods, including all fruits and veggies, are great to eat anytime.

Yellow

Yellows, like lean proteins and pasta, are important for healthy eating, too–you’ll just watch your portions. 

Red

Red foods, like desserts and sugary drinks? Just stop and think how to budget them in with everything else.

Yes, it’s science-based

When it comes to helping you get healthier, science tells us that family-based behavior change programs work. That’s why Kurbo is all about building new habits that make you and your family feel great.

Our traffic light system was developed at Stanford University, based on more than 30 years of research. Numerous scientific studies published in top academic journals have shown that it’s safe and effective for weight loss.

5 steps to success

1 Answer a few questions

Kurbo’s questionnaire takes 5 minutes, and helps us match you with your dedicated coach.

2 Get started with your coach

It’s simple to book a video chat. In your first session, you’ll set goals and learn how to get started.

3 Make it easier with the app

The fun Kurbo app helps you choose a balance of foods, get more active, shake off stress and build confidence, day by day.

4 Check in every week

Your coach has a toolbox of tips to make the program work for your life and your family. You’ll have a 15-minute video check-in once a week to problem-solve challenges and celebrate successes. You can also reach out anytime via chat/text!
