Fast Start Edition No. 1: Start Your Weight Loss Journey NOW

The starting line running small

Start your weight loss journey with our hand selected team of personal trainer and nutritionists.

I am honored to be with you on your weight loss journey. I promised you that this time it would be different, and I meant it.

Along with myself, a hand selected team of dieticians, personal trainers, and nutritionists will be helping you maximize the benefits of Weight Loss Formula No. 1.

And we believe in action, so there is no reason to wait until your supplements arrive to start losing fat NOW.

Just follow these steps…. and make sure to read them all (especially step three which will fascinate you).

Step One: Read Jane’s Story [Very Important… A Note About Our Formula]

I would like to share a short story from Jane Blaho, a retiree from Fort Lauderdale, Florida who has now lost 31 pounds using our formula:

Jana Blaho Fb

Jane Blaho

“I have been struggling with losing weight for years. I always seem to be on a diet. I even joined a gym in hopes of losing weight. I just don’t have a very high metabolism. I think that RealDose has increased my metabolism so my exercise program is giving me some results. It also has curbed my appetite so I can reduce my calorie intake. The combination has helped me finally see results in my weight loss. I weigh myself every day and I’m showing a steady weight loss… I’m very happy!”

The reason I wanted you to read Jane’s story is not just to motivate you, but to discuss the reality of exactly what our formula will and will NOT do for you.

First, our formula is not a magic potion that is going to allow you to eat anything you want in excess and still drop pounds. Notice that the formula helped Jane curb her appetite, which is one thing we hear over and over again. Jane would not have dropped 31 pounds if she ate whatever she wanted… whenever she wanted.

So, if for some reason when you watched my video or read our webpage you got the impression that our supplement would allow you to eat pizza and ice cream every meal, and you could just watch the fat just melt away…

Then please contact us and we will gladly refund your order because our formula will not do this, and no other supplement or ingredient will either… even the ones with unpleasant and mostly dangerous side effects.

On the other hand, our formula does have ingredients that will:

1. Make it easier to follow a healthy plan by lowering ghrelin (the hormone responsible for making you hungry), elevating your mood to help prevent emotional eating, and reducing sugar cravings by slowing down the glucose absorption into your blood stream.

2. Accelerate the results you do experience when you follow a healthy eating plan, by increasing adiponectin (the hormone responsible for turning calories into energy), increasing insulin sensitivity, and decreasing the cortisol levels that make losing belly fat almost impossible.

It is this combination that has allowed Jane and countless others to lose weight using RealDose Weight Loss Formula No. 1. So I hope we are now clear on what you can expect…. and not expect.

Step Two: The Water Trick

A water in glasses small

This is the first of many simple weight loss tricks I am going to share with you over the coming weeks. I find that simple, inexpensive tricks can be extremely effective as part of an effective weight loss strategy.

When you hear it you will think it is too simple to work. However a published study shows that those who do this lose 44% more weight than those who do not.

What is it? Simply drink 16 ounces (2 cups) of water before every meal. That’s it. It’s easy to do, the results are proven, and it’s totally free.

So starting with next meal, try the water trick. You will not be disappointed.

If you want a more in depth look at the research, you can go to my blog post here.

Step Three: Discover Your “Why”

A family sunny day small

I’m losing weight so I can be more active and involved with my family. What reason do you have to lose weight?

I don’t know why you are trying to lose weight. Everybody has his or her own reasons. I know for me it is about being there for my wife and four children. I want to play an active part in their lives and eventually my grandchildren’s lives.

For you it is probably different, and although I am interested… I don’t need to know your reason why.

But one thing I do know is that it’s important that YOU know why you want to lose the weight. Knowing and understanding this will help drive you when things get tough (and they will).

And research has clearly demonstrated that people who understand their “why” are more effective at losing weight (and a host of other goals). And because most people have trouble really establishing their true why, I have a brief exercise you can do below that might be a huge help to you.

You can also contact us, and one of our coaches trained in the method can walk you through it on the phone… it is that important.

And by the way, I didn’t make this up. It comes from Dr. Michael Pantalon, a psychologist and researcher at Yale University who I respect greatly.

Please write down the answers to these questions:

1: Why might you want to do the things necessary to lose weight?

2: How ready are you to do the things necessary to lose weight— on a scale from 1 to 10, where 1 means “not ready at all” and 10 means “totally ready”?

3: Why didn’t you pick a lower number? If you picked “1”, what would it take for that 1 to turn into a 2?

4: Imagine you’ve lost all the weight you wanted and are at your ideal weight, what would the positive results be?

5: Why are those positive results important to you?

6: What’s the very next thing you are going to do?

Step Four: Download Our Fat Loss Fast Start Program

Fast Start Edition No. 1 SupplementThe Fat Loss Fast Start Program contains the information our customers have used to create fast, healthy and sustainable fat loss results. I recommend you read it carefully and follow it to the best of your ability.

A big question I get is whether you have to follow the program, or whether our supplement, Weight Loss Formula No. 1 (WLF1), will work with other diets and exercise programs.

The answer is that WLF1 will make any healthy diet work more effectively. We have countless stories from customers who are following other programs where WLF1 finally made them work. However, I still recommend you download and read this guide because there are a lot of tips that can augment other effective plans.

Hi, I'm Dr. Steve Sisskind, Chief Medical Officer & Founder at RealDose Nutrition.

As a young physician, I struggled because my patients came to me with serious health issues, but I didn't have the right tools to help them. Medical school taught me how to put "band aids" on their symptoms with drugs and surgery, but not how to address the root causes of their problems.

Years later I discovered a better approach... based on the fundamental idea that the power of nutrition can transform your health and vitality. But there's a lot of confusion... What foods should I eat? Which supplements should I take? What does the science say?

I have dedicated my life to answering these questions... And I share this knowledge with you every day here at RealDose Nutrition.

I invite you to connect with me by joining my free private community. I've helped thousands of people and I know I can help you too!

  1. I had my right thyroid removed about 12 years ago and I am on medication Levothyroxine 0.100mg for the rest of my life and I am also taking Bupropion XL 150 mg for anxiety/depression. I would like to know if I should continue to take them if I am taking the Real Dose supplement?

    • Dr. Steve Sisskind

      Hi Awilda,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us! RealDose Weight Loss Formula NO.1 is made with all natural ingredients and can be taken along with most medications. However, before you do so, we do ask that you speak to your doctor and get his thoughts. The reason being, while we are confident that there will be no drug interactions between the medications, we have no sure way of knowing how your body will take to both the supplement and your Levothyroxine. Hope this helps! Make it a healthy day!

  2. The link to the free coaching doesn’t work. Can you send a working link?

    • Dr. Steve Sisskind

      Hi Nancy,

      Thank you for writing in and for posting your concerns! I am very sorry but we have temporarily suspended our Healthy Life Program as our system is currently undergoing updating. However, for your health and wellness questions, please send them to We are happy to help! Make it a healthy day!

  3. When I agreed to buy the formula online, I was dismayed at the additional sales pitches for all the extra stuff (which I turned down). It made me feel like this probably was just another ridiculous scheme that I had wasted money on. I really hope that’s not the case. I’ll follow the plan and see what happens. I just hope it helps!

  4. I work graveyards and its hard to know when to eat and what to eat since my clock is backwards what would you recommend to help me lose the weight.

    • Dr. Steve Sisskind

      Hi Amy,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us! I completely understand your frustration! Graveyard shifts often leave us hankering for salty chips and lots of candy to fight the urge to sleep. That said, I do recommend that you try your best to maintain a healthy diet (snacks included!) to ensure you progress steadily. Be sure to take in plenty of Omega 3 rich foods to help you fight inflammation. Setting an alarm in your phone or alarm clock, at work will help remind you to take a break or snack. Packing healthy snacks and meals will help in keeping you away from the salty and sweets goods. Lastly, spacing out your meals 3 to 4 hours apart (depending on how long your shift runs) can help in maintaining your metabolic rate. Make it a healthy day!

  5. At my age (80+) I have tried most every thing to stop my sugar craving and lose some of the fat that I have put on again. Every thing that I finally heard on the doctors tape could have been directed at me. I have PTS from my child hood. Lived in fear for about 18 years. Insulin imbalance, and all the others sound like my life story. Thought,( at one time ) I would start smoking again. I was skinny when I smoked and didn’t eat. I am ready to do anything to be a part of this program and am so grateful for it.

  7. I can’t wait to start the formula, should be arriving soon. I have over 100 lbs to lose and have been on a keto/paleo weight loss plan already. I have a problem handling carbohydrates and have had that problem since I was a kid. I’ve struggled with my weight my entire life. I’m Italian and love pasta but can’t go near it anymore or else. If I do eat it I can easily gain two to three pounds overnight. Not pleasant. I’m hoping this formula will help to correct some of my metabolic imbalances. I am currently taking a strong dose of Armour thyroid and was on Cortef but had to discontinue. Didn’t work that well anyway. Have a great day Dr. Sisskind and team!

    • Dr. Steve Sisskind


      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your thoughts with us! I completely understand what you mean and do know that you have a long journey ahead of you. It is important to remember that a sick thyroid can make losing weight seem quite difficult which is why we do encourage you to work closely with your doctor to ensure you progress steadily and safely. RealDose Weight Loss Formula NO.1 can help with with your weight loss journey by helping control your appetite, curb cravings and improve your sleeping patterns. It works well with your Paleo Diet and our Fat Loss Fast Start program adapts a similar form of eating plan. I wish you great success on your journey, Ginny! And, make it a healthy day!

  8. I just ordered your Weight Loss Formula and am hoping it will work for me. I am disabled and can not do much in the line of exercise. My meds also can cause me to gain weight. I have about 100 pounds to lose and am hoping this will work. Also is it okay to use crystal light or equivalent to flavor the water?

    Thank you

    • Dr. Steve Sisskind

      Hi Wanda,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your thoughts with us! There should be no problem with you using Crystal Light, if you have been doing so for quite a while now. However, if it is just for adding flavor to your otherwise stale still water, I do recommend you try adding a few slices of citrus fruits (lemon or lime). Personally, I add a few slices of cucumbers in my big batch o lemon infsed water and have them throughout the day. You can try the same and see if it works for you.

      Also, I know that physical limitations may hamper our desire to move about. Do not give up and simply concentrate your efforts on what your body allows you to do for the day. For example, if you are cleaning your home, do it with dedication and you will feel the familiar burn of exercising. Moving about or exercising is crucial at this stage as you want to maintain your current range of motions.

      RealDose Weight Loss Formula NO.1 can help you in your journey to better health but it may take time for true results to show. Know that we are here with you in your journey and you only need to let us know of your thoughts and concerns. Hope this helps! Have a healthy day!

  9. From the comments I’ve read I have great praise for them for being much more dedicated than I am.They have not let their weight get so far beyond them and the sizes they wear when I started in adult sizes I wore size 12 and now a 20 or maybe an 18 depending.If I could lose 2 pounds a month I could at least see some progress I then might be able in a year or so be at my supposed ideal weight.I’m looking forward to trying again as I haven’t tried anything in a couple of years. Fresh new outlook and a new start. Not sure but hope it will help my sleep as it is very disjointed with the turn arounds from night shifts to days and then nights again. I guess that also affects my eating habits. Its hard to know what meal I’m eating at what time.Oh well Maybe only 10 more years of this then I can retire.Sorry so long winded really looking forward to starting as of right now

    • Dr. Steve Sisskind

      Hi Donna,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your experience with us! I completely understand your frustration and know just how hard it is to lose weight. However, do not give up and continue to make small but permanent healthy lifestyle changes. It does not have to be a complete overhaul, overnight but more like giving up on small things such as sweets, for starters. Over time, these small changes become a lifetime of habit and you will start to see the weight come off. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, more than anything else as it will not only enable weight loss but improve your overall health. If you need any support or guidance, our Healthy Life Program is there for our RealDose Family! Hope this helps! Make it a healthy day!

  10. Hi
    I have just purchased your product, I am a 43 yr old and 5 years ago I had a pituatry apoplexy which is a tuma on the pituatry gland and bled, since that I have been on hydrocortosine and thyroid medication I have been unable to loose weight and just keep putting it on, i have cut a lot of stuff out of my diet and have been doing aqua aerobics but nothing seems to work, i recently have been diagnosed with asthma aswell so im hoping that this will help me loose some weight to feel better

    • Dr. Steve Sisskind

      Hi Cindy,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your thoughts with us! I completely understand your concerns as well as the urgency of your need. A sick thyroid may often make our journey to weight loss seem daunting and compounded with your issues with asthma, almost makes it impossible. That said, I want you to know that we are here for you and ready to lend a hand. It is important to not get discouraged when you embark on a journey to better health and we find that getting support helps keep you focused on the task at hand. RealDose Weight Loss Formula No.1 can help by curbing your appetite and cravings as well as help improve your sleep and mood. However, it is important that you work closely with your personal doctor to ensure not just your safety but that you progress steadily and forward. Hope this helps! Have a healthy day!

  11. I have just placed my order and am hoping for success. I am in my 60’s and consider myself pretty active, exercising at least 3 times a week at the gym and home. About 2 years ago I went through a stressful work required education program and found myself continually eating/snacking. I packed on about 15 pounds and have since lost and gained weight, but never getting back to my pre-education weight. Even with exercise and some weight loss the belly fat just does not seem to go away and sends me into discouragement and eating. I am hoping this will help me with decreasing belly fat and getting my weight down.

    • Dr. Steve Sisskind

      Hi JA,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us! I completely get what you mean and have gone through the same thing when I did my post graduate studies. It seems that salty chips and sweets are just what we need while we study. I hope you have since kicked the habit as these can negatively affect your weight loss efforts.

      RealDose Weight Loss Formula No.1 can help by decreasing your appetite, improving mood and curbing one’s propensity to crave. However, it will take time for true results to show and I do encourage you to continue your healthy changes. It is important that you avoid giving in to temptation and opt for healthy snacks when the cravings do come. Also, toning or core exercises from Pilates or Yoga can help firm up your problem areas. I hope these help and do look forward to hearing from you! Have a healthy day!

  12. I am a 36 yr old female, and suffer from sugar addiction and seem to binge eat once 7pm rolls around, until I go to bed, around 11pm. The late evening/night is when I really need to curb cravings and feel satisfied. Any suggestions, and can I take the supplements later in the day? Anything that seems to curb appetite has worn off well before I go into “eat everything in sight” mode. Thank you.

    • Dr. Steve Sisskind

      Hi K.S.

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us! I completely understand what you’re saying and do know how haunting cravings can get. I do suggest that you add more protein to you evening meals and be sure to pair these with a generous portion of salad. By adding more fiber and protein in your meals, you are able to stay fuller for longer as they do take a while to completely breakdown and digest. Also, if you do need to snack, be sure they are healthy. A handful of nuts, berries or small piece of fruit are always the better option instead of chips and candy. Lastly, I do not recommend deviating from the usage instructions (30 minutes before meals, 3 times per day) but do suggest that you stay consistent with the dosing. In time, you will notice that your craving will decrease and eventually be easily managed. Hope this helps! Have a healthy day!

  13. Hi Dr Steve
    I have been diagnosed as a “pre diabetic” , so I’m already aware that my insulin response is not great. A larger concern however is that my digestion is shocking. I suffer from a condition known as ” dry drowning” where all the contents of my stomach spontaneously arise back toward my throat and it cuts of my windpipes for 15-30 seconds in order to stop the food from getting into my lungs. It’s the most terrifying event ! So I’m wondering what you might suggest to really overhaul my digestion. I’m told probiotics and probiotics are the answer but there are so many of them, most of which are high in sugar which I cannot have in any form.
    Kind regards

    • Dr. Steve Sisskind

      Hi Melanie,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us! There could be a number of reasons which has caused your discomfort and while I do understand the urgency of your concern, unfortunately, I am unable to give medical advice. I do, instead, defer to the wisdom of your personal doctor and suggest that you speak with them about your concern.

      The reason being, your health is of the utmost importance and by speaking with your personal doctor, you are not only able to find relief from your symptoms but also prevent the same from recurring. Probiotics and prebiotics can help maintain good digestive health. However, as the cause or trigger of your discomfort has not yet been discovered, I suggest that you speak with your doctor before choosing a product. Make it a healthy day!

  14. I just placed my order and cant wait to start. I have one question, what happens when you stop taking it? I have 50 xtra pounds to lose and went with the 90 day package.

    • Dr. Steve Sisskind

      Hi Lynne,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us! I completely understand your concerns and do want to let you know that RealDose Weight Loss Formula is natural, stimulant-free and completely safe for everyday use. It can be taken for weight loss or for maintenance. There is no rebound effect from discontinuing RealDose. However, we believe if we can help you adopt the proper eating, exercise and lifestyle habits, that in the long run, supplementation may not be required. This is why we include information about these topics in our Fat Loss Fast Start Program that comes free with every order, and in our follow up email communications. A slow steady approach to weight loss is best, focusing on losing 1-2 lbs per week. Making healthy choices combined with an active lifestyle can help remove the barriers that blocked your success in the past. Hope this helps! Have a healthy day!

  15. I am looking forward to start on my new improve journey. I am not to good at staying on the “diet” theme, I loose track and my interest just vanish. I am 66yrs old from Perth Western Australia and have been battling with my weight after my first child born 1976, since then my weight and diets have been up and down. I go to the gym, play sports but, my main problem is WHAT I PUT IN MY MOUTH, combine with Menopause that lingers around and I just find it too difficult to beat the battle of the bulge. Like many of your clients, I have tried many pills and I hope with your Weight Loss Formula1 its going to be something I have been waiting for. Have a fantastic day.

    • Dr. Steve Sisskind

      Hi Barbara,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us! I am honored that you have made RealDose Nutrition your partner in health and want you to know that we are here to help. Menopause can be quite the dilemma for some as they not only pack on the pounds but find that dropping the weight is almost next to impossible. I do not want you to get discouraged and to continue your healthy diet and lifestyle. It is important that you continue your exercise regimen and diet but also must get around 7 to 8 hours of sleep to lower your Cortisol levels. RealDose Weight Loss Formula NO.1 can help you on your journey to better health by curbing your appetite and cravings but it will take time for true and lasting weight loss to show which is why I encourage you to never give up! Hope this helps! Have a healthy day!

  16. Margaret Sandifer

    Hello Dr. I just ordered my first bottle and am excited to start . I don’t have a thyroid, bi-polar manic depressive disorder. I do believe this product will help. No matter what I do the weight just won’t come off. A few years ago I wore a size 8 after 4yrs I wear a size 18. What do you think. I don’t eat a lot so I can’t figure it out.

    • Dr. Steve Sisskind

      Hi Margaret,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us! There a lot of factors that can cause rapid weight gain for some folks, even if they are eating healthy or adhere to strict portions.Your current condition as well as certain medication may have contributed to your weight gain but I do want to reassure you that we are here to help you in your journey to better health. Fixing a sick thyroid often relieves many of the symptoms of hypothyroidism and it can help rev up your metabolism. The lifestyle choices you make play a big role in your weight loss too.

      RealDose works to help with weight loss, however if you have an underactive thyroid, it’s important to work with your doctor for treatment to help eliminate those symptoms. With treatment, your thyroid will work with you instead of against you as you pursue a healthy weight. The important thing is to not get discouraged and allow your body the time it needs to affect the intended changes.

      Also, should you have any questions or concerns, our Healthy Life Program can help you get in touch with one of our coaches. By doing so, he or she can personally guide you through your journey and ensure that you progress steadily and safely. If you’d like more information about the program, you can visit the Healthy Life Program page at the link below:

      Again, I thank you for writing in, Margaret, and do hope this helps! Have a healthy day!

  17. Dear Dr. Steve,
    I have already bought your product and waiting to receive it at any time.
    However I noticed that all the comments sent to you came from ladies! Does yourroduct work on women only as I am a male and 57 years old?
    I have few kilos of fat around my belly which I want to get rid off, I have sugar problem and on insulin. Is it ok to take the formula 1 or what? Pls advice me.
    Thanks in advance.

    • Dr. Steve Sisskind

      Hi Imad,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us! Yes, RealDose Weight Loss Formula NO.1 works for men too. The formula works for both men and women. The clinical research on the ingredients was performed on both. Lastly, RealDose Weight Loss Formula No.1 can be taken along with your medications for Diabetes and blood pressure but I do still ask that you first speak with your personal doctor before starting. The reason being, while I am confident that our products and your medication will not directly react with one another, there is no way of knowing how your body will take to both. By speaking with your doctor, you are able know more about possible interactions as well as adjust your diet accordingly. Hope this helps! Have a healthy day!

  18. I am 69 years old, and have fought the battle for most of my life. My objective is to lower my blood sugars to a healthy level, and of course to be able to look a lot better. I have 40 – 45 lbs. to lose. I’ve just finished my 1st bottle of formula #1, and find that my energy level has greatly improved, and some of that annoying big belly has already gone down, though I’ve only lost about 41/2 lbs. If this product keeps up this well, I’m going to be one very happy woman! My next step is to start a serious exercise program (one thing at a time), now that I’m on the right track with my food, and have begun to get better sleep. It’s nice to be AWARE!
    Thanks Dr. Steve!

    • Dr. Steve Sisskind

      Hi Kate,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your experience with us! A decrease in appetite and increase in energy levels are early signs that you are responding well to the changes that the formula is making. Losing 4 1/2 pounds a few weeks into your healthy regimen (Congratulations!) is a sure sign that your body is adapting well to the intended changes. That said, do not get discouraged and do continue your healthy regimen. A healthy rate of weight loss is dropping 1 to 2 pounds per week but I suggest that you also lookout for other changes such as better sleeping patterns, improved mood and lesser cravings. In time, you will also start to notice that your clothes fit better even though you have not lost that much weight. This means your body is trimming and toning your fat layer slowly. Hope this helps! Have a healthy day!

  19. Sheila A Noeson

    I have tried every program out there. When I was younger I worked very hard to keep very slim. Then came menopause and changes that were stressful. I am now 61 and looking for a slim healthy body and weigh 179. Still work out but getting nowhere. Hope this program works for me. thank you.. Is bottled or tap water the best to drink before meals?

    • Dr. Steve Sisskind

      Hi Sheila,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your thoughts with us! Menopause can make losing weight seem difficult but I want to reassure you that it is possible. It’s very important to understand how keeping your systems balanced by making healthy food choices, exercising and getting 8 hours of sleep each night, helps in coping with the changes your body is experiencing. Both bottled or tap water is fine and I do recommend that you use the one you are already used to. Plain tap or bottled water can get boring, but you can flavor your water to keep it interesting and help you to stay hydrated. Adding citrus such as lemon or lime to your water can provide you with vitamin C and make a basic beverage zestier. Hope this helps! Have a healthy day!
