What is the 10 Pound Takedown Challenge?
The 10 Pound Takedown Challenge is a counterintuitive approach to weight loss that allows you to drop 10 pounds of stubborn fat WITHOUT gagging down expensive shakes, wasting time and money on dangerous diet pills, paying $400 a month for overpriced, processed “diet foods,” or having to exercise AT ALL.

We achieve this by eating rich, delicious, naturally filling real foods you can find in any grocery store, drinking enough water, and prioritizing sleep, all without having to make time for the gym or waste money on diet pills, shake powders, or mail-order “diet foods.”

This frees you up to focus on eating the right foods, avoiding the wrong ones, and getting in your water and sleep.

The 10 Pound Takedown Challenge is a shortcut through the weight loss lies keeping you fat, sick, and addicted
My name is Cristy “Code Red” Nickel, and I’m a retired professional boxer, celebrity trainer, best-selling author, and creator of the Code Red Lifestyle™ nutrition and lifestyle program.

And the whole reason I created the Code Red Lifestyle™ is this: I had a problem.
See, even though I was an elite-level athlete working out 5 HOURS a day, I was getting fat.

And based on what I learned while studying Exercise Science at the University of Memphis, there’s NO WAY I should have gained all that fat.

And yet, after I retired from professional boxing and got into road cycling, where I was riding my road bike as much as 300 miles a week while keeping up with the fastest men - and setting records that, to this day, have still not been broken - I started getting fat!

“How is this possible?!” I thought at the time. “I’m exercising like a maniac, and I’m STILL getting fat!”

Getting fat wasn’t part of my plan. According to what I learned in college, it should have been IMPOSSIBLE.

And yet there I was…both the FATTEST and the FITTEST I’d ever been.

Finally I got so fed up that I dove into the research, tried out what I discovered, and much to my shock at the time, lost the extra weight…100% with NUTRITION.
Not only that, it happened a LOT more easily than I was expecting.

Losing weight through nutrition went against everything I’d been taught, and frankly, I wondered if my experience was just a fluke.

So I asked some family and friends if I could help them lose weight doing what I did.

And not only did THEY drop the weight, they felt better than they had in years!
The wildest part is that like me, they did it without exercising!

That’s when I realized I could no longer deny the truth: that exercise, while great for a million reasons, is NOT a way to address a weight problem…

AND you can lose all the weight you want without exercise or bullcrap gimmicks like shakes, diet pills, and diet foods.

I went on to create my nutrition program, the Code Red Lifestyle™, and since 2010 I’ve helped over a quarter of a million people lose weight by eating real food, drinking water, sleeping, and following a few SIMPLE rules. No exercise or gimmicks required!

And now YOU have the opportunity to lose 10 pounds (maybe more) in 30 days with the Code Red Lifestyle™ by joining the 10 Pound Takedown Challenge!

Dear Future Code Red Rebel
From: The desk of Cristy “Code Red” Nickel
Re: The 10 Pound Takedown Challenge (and why this is your only way out)
Would it surprise you to learn that I lost ALL my weight (and helped hundreds of thousands do the same) using real food, water, sleep, and 10 simple rules?

If you’re skeptical, that’s good.

You should be.

After all, you can’t believe everything you read on the internet :-)
so let me prove it to you
But first, read this disclaimer:
The average person who buys any “how to” information achieves little to no results, because they don’t take the necessary consistent action. I’m using these references for example purposes only.

Your results will vary and depend on many factors…including but not limited to how well you follow the entire program, how much you eat, how much water you drink, and how much sleep you get.

All purchases come with some risk and require consistent effort and action. If you're not willing to accept that, please DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS CHALLENGE.

It took me and my clients time and energy to achieve my results.

With that said…let me jump right in and show you…
How I Help My Clients Lose Weight And Feel Better Using A Completely Counterintuitive Method That I’m About To Share With You On This Very Page…
The same 10 Pound Takedown Challenge method that regular people from all over the world are now using to lose their first, next, or last 10 pounds in 30 days and feel better than they have in years…

...And in turn get rid of stubborn fat they thought they were “destined” to be stuck with...

...All while eating real, normal food you can find in any grocery store…

...And best of all, doing it all without shakes, diet pills, diet foods, or exercise!
Just Like Beth, Who Joined The 10 Pound Takedown And Went On To Lose 190 Pounds On The Code Red Lifestyle™! 
After she got started with the Code Red Lifestyle™, Beth posted this in a Code Red online community.
And even though Beth lost weight with Code Red, that's not the best part...

The best part is that she learned tools she could use for LIFE to manage her weight.

That's right, Beth doesn’t need shakes, diet pills, diet foods, or even exercise to keep off the weight she lost (although exercise is great once you've lost all your weight). She can keep going and still stay at her healthy weight by simply eating real food, drinking water, and sleeping!

And Beth isn’t the only one either…
This Is Abbie, Another Code Red Rebel Who Lost ALL Her Weight With The Code Red Lifestyle™ (185 Pounds, To Be Exact)…
...And soon felt better than she thought it was possible to feel…
Here’s what Abbie shared about her Code Red journey…

Meet Lacey, Who Lost Over 200 Pounds On Code Red
**DISCLAIMER: Some results featured in before and after photos like these ones are not typical. The average person can expect to lose 1-2 pounds weekly following the Code Red Lifestyle™. Results vary because of many factors, including food eaten, water consumed, and sleep quantity.

Beth, Abbie, and Lacey Are Part Of A Group Of Over 250,000 Code Red Rebels Who Are Doing Things Differently…
And you can BET...

The Code Red Lifestyle™ is unlike any weight loss method you heard of before…

…This is something completely different, because…
  • We don’t focus on “hitting the gym” (or exercising, period)
  • ​We don’t focus on complicated recipes with 25 weird ingredients you have to special order
  • We don’t focus on gross, expensive “diet foods” you have to buy every month
  • We don’t focus on focus on risky diet pills that teach you NOTHING about sustainable weight loss
  • ​We don’t focus on expensive shake mixes you have to buy monthly and gag down
In fact: we don’t use any gimmicks AT ALL!
Instead We Focus On Real Food, Water, Sleep & 10 SIMPLE Rules…
Like I said…
This is something totally different and it has the power to change everything for you…
…and I know that’s true…

Because it changed everything for me, and has changed everything for over 250,000 people (and counting).

The Code Red Lifestyle™ cuts through 99% of the bullcrap weight loss lies that I hated–and that kept me AND my clients fat, sick, and miserable–when it comes to safe, sustainable, gimmick-free weight loss…
  • Like being told you can out-train a bad diet (which you can’t, and neither could I, even as an elite-level athlete)
  • Like being told your body will only drop weight if you just get the right “magic diet pill”
  • Like being told a gritty shake powder is gonna magically burn off all the fat
  • ​​Like being told you need specialty “diet foods” to lose weight (instead of the natural real food your body’s actually designed to eat)
  • ​​​​Like being told 3 meals and 2 snacks a day to “keep up your metabolism” will finally put a dent in that stubborn fat if you just do it long enough
  • ​Like being told “calories in, calories out” and “a calorie is a calorie” means you can eat a 2,200 calorie pizza and work it off with an extra 30 minutes on the treadmill
The Code Red Lifestyle™ Freed Me And My Clients From All That And It Allowed Me–And Them–To Safely & Sustainably Lose All The Weight We Want WITHOUT Shakes, Diet Pills, Diet Foods, Or Exercise
Here’s what life used to look like for my clients (and if you’ve ever tried to lose weight then I’m sure you can relate)…

I call this the “Weight Loss Spiral Of Disaster”:
  • Step 1 - Get sick and tired of being fat, sick, and tired
  • Step 2 - Try to exercise more
  • Step 3 - Try to eat less (and resign yourself to eating like a bird)
  • ​​Step 4 - Try another magic pill, powder, patch, or processed “diet food”
  • ​​​​Step 5 - Feel tired, hungry and miserable all day every day
  • Step 6 - Feel deprived, get frustrated, and feel hopeless all over again
  • Step 7 - Give up and gain it all back with interest
  • Step 8 - Start over
The Weight Loss Spiral Of Disaster is not only MISERABLE, but it kept me (and my clients, pre-Code Red) fat and sick, forcing me to wonder if there was something wrong with me because I could NOT get the weight off using mainstream methods like “eat less, exercise more.”

The reality is…

...I got REALLY frustrated when I couldn’t exercise my weight off…

... It just didn’t make sense…

And I wanted to try what I discovered through my research.

Something that…if it worked…

Would change everything.

And as you're about to find out, what I tried...

... It actually WORKED better than I expected (for me, and for other people)...

So I spent years turning it into a system…
And I Put This Simple System In A 30-Day Challenge Called The 10 Pound Takedown…

This may be your first time reading my name, hearing about Code Red. Or maybe you learned about me on a podcast, on TV, on social media, or at an event. Maybe you even saw me in Allure Magazine, or on MTV.

My life’s pretty good…as of this writing I live in Boise, Idaho with my dog, Hazel.
As We Get To Know Each Other… You’ll Quickly Realize That I’m SO Blessed To Be Where I Am Now - So Let’s Talk About Where I Was After The Recession Of 2008 Left Me Homeless, Jobless, And In Debt
I was in my 30s and living in New York City.

I had no boxing career, because I’d retired.

I had no apartment, because the economy crashed and I couldn’t afford my rent.

I had no family nearby (my family was on the other side of the country), so I had no one to help me.

... and I had just lost all my personal training clients, because everyone was scared of the Recession.

All this meant I couldn’t afford to stay in New York City.

So I packed up my stuff and my dog (at the time), Champ, and drove across the country to my home state of Idaho, where I started personal training again.

Then I got into elite road cycling, where I often rode my road bike 300 miles a week while keeping up with the fastest men.

And even though I was exercising like crazy, I was starting to get FAT. I also had really bad IBS. My stomach hurt. Cellulite was popping up on my hips and thighs.

There’s a stupid myth out there...that if you just exercise hard enough, you shouldn’t get fat.

…Well, I found out that is COMPLETE bull crap.

If you want to lose stubborn fat, out-training a bad diet is NOT POSSIBLE.

I know, because I tried.

I gave it everything I had.

I gave it my BEST shot.

It didn’t work (even for me, an elite-level athlete)…

Because I played by the rules and I did everything mainstream weight loss advice says to do...
I Ended Up The Fattest I’d Ever Been, And I Hated It…
I hated it because I'd been an athlete for most of my adult life.

I’d been a federally licensed, professional boxer who’d fought in 15 pro fights all over the world during my 8-year career.

Ring Magazine named me one of the top 3 most dangerous females on the planet.

And though my boxing career was over, I had goals, dreams and aspirations...I knew I was meant for more...

...and feeling FAT, SICK and MISERABLE wasn't going to work for me.

So I did what everyone else out there does in this situation.

I started looking for a way out.

I looked everywhere, and finally, I found it…

Research explaining why you cannot out-train a bad diet…and how to eat in a safe, sustainable way that doesn’t require useless gimmicks or even EXERCISE to work!

My mind was completely blown. But I tried it on myself, then I tried it on family and a few close friends, and IT WORKED FOR THEM TOO…

…even though NONE of them were elite athletes like me!

It proved to me, once and for all, that weight loss is 100% nutrition!
Real Food, Water, And Sleep Is One Of The Most Legitimate And Easy-To-Use Ways To Lose Weight And Feel Better
Just think about it:

For most of human history, human beings didn’t have a weight problem.

You’d see a bigger person here and there, but it wasn’t over two-thirds of people like it is now.
  • Did people have diet pills back when obesity was super rare? No, because no one’s fat due to a diet pill deficiency
  • Did people have weight loss shakes back when obesity was super rare? No, because no one’s fat due to a shake deficiency.
  • ​Did people have processed specialty “diet foods” back when obesity was super rare? No, because processed food didn’t exist. Human beings ate real food.
  • And did people need mutilating surgery to stay at a healthy weight back when obesity was super rare? Heck no!
They ate the proper human diet of real food, they drank water, and they slept…just like we do on the Code Red Lifestyle™…and the proper human diet was the perfect way to live for me and my clients…
And the best part that attracted me to doing it this way?
You Don’t Have To Make Complicated Recipes With 25 Weird, Hard-To-Find Ingredients In Order To Eat For Weight Loss
Which means you can drop weight eating real, normal foods you’ll find in any grocery store...

Wanna Know What The Main Difference Is Between The Code Red Lifestyle™ And That “Old Way” Of Doing Things?
The old way is about gimmicks you don’t need and workarounds that don't work, while Code Red is about giving your body what it’s already designed to thrive on.

Rather than gagging down shakes, choking down diet pills, spending money on processed diet foods month after month, or hitting the gym 2 hours a day 6 days a week, here’s what losing weight and feeling better looks like now, on Code Red…
And The Result Of Using This New Way?
Which Naturally Leads To…
Feeling confident when you leave the house, finding clothes you love that actually fit, enjoying energy through the roof, and living in a body that’s physically capable of doing what you want it to do!

And the best part is that you will feel better than you have in YEARS…no matter your age!
What’s really awesome is that…

If you follow every single step that I teach, you end up with less stubborn fat on your body…

But it’s much more than that…
It’s Actually Taking Your Life Back From Obesity, Sickness, And Misery...
How many bull crap “diets” have you tried over the years that were completely unsustainable? You know, the ones that have you do things like…
  • Eat nothing but cabbage soup
  • ​Spend hundreds–even THOUSANDS–of dollars on processed “diet foods” every month (and still have to buy food at the grocery store)
  • ​Cut out foods based on what color they are
  • ​Count points
Now I’m going to share something that’s a little bit disturbing with you.
I am defying the ENTER diet industry by telling you this.

And there are LOADS of weight loss gimmicks out there making loads of money by telling you the opposite of what I teach (except their way doesn’t work).

Ready for it?
The Reason Every Diet You’ve Ever Tried Has Failed You Is Because Diets Have Failure BUILT IN
Let me explain what that means.

There are two types of people in the world who want to get rid of stubborn fat.

There are the people who just want the latest gimmick so they can quickly drop some weight, then go back to their old ways.

Then there are the people who are SO sick and tired of being sick and tired that they’re done with gimmicks and just want something sustainable that WORKS.

The problem is that they’re so saturated by diets and gimmicks, they think diets and gimmicks are their only option.

Except, like I said, diets and have failure built in!
  • Seriously, what happens when you stop taking the magic diet pill?
  • ​What happens when you stop drinking the pricey weight loss shake?
  • ​What happens when you don’t wanna spend $495 a month on nasty, processed diet foods anymore?
You know what happens, or you probably wouldn’t be reading this, but just so it’s clear:

You gain all your weight back, plus interest.

See, diets are not about sustainability. They’re about keeping you stuck in the loop of making a temporary change to lose the weight, then going back to the same foods and habits that led to your weight problem in the first place.

Do that enough, and you start to think there’s something wrong with you…but there isn’t.

You can’t seem to make it work because diets and gimmicks have failure built in. They are about keeping you losing and regaining weight, NOT about results that last and work with real life!

So what’s the solution to getting off the diet merry-go-round for good?
Eat Real Food. Drink Water. Sleep. Follow 10 Simple Rules.
That's right...

I said it, we use real food, water, and sleep…aka what your body is naturally designed to thrive on…

...Because I’d rather give my body the SIMPLE things it already wants and needs, instead of stay on the diet and gimmick merry-go-round or try to pointlessly exercise my weight off for even one more second.

I did that before, you did that before, and we both know from experience that IT DOESN’T WORK!!

So here's the deal...

...I explain everything in the 10 Pound Takedown Challenge. It's a 30-day challenge that teaches you how to use real food, water, and sleep to lose your first, next, or last 10 pounds in 30 days and feel better than you have in years WITHOUT shakes, diet pills, diet foods, or exercise.

So Here's The Game-Changing Idea Behind The 10 Pound Takedown Challenge
Right now, as you're reading this very page...

There's a lot of activity happening in the world of weight loss.

People are starting to wise up about diets, gimmicks, and doctors telling them pills or surgery are their only hope…yet most of what they still see to help them lose weight is a diet, another gimmick, or expensive surgery!

This has created a feeling of hopelessness that’s so strong, more and more people are starting to believe the lie that they are “destined to be fat.”

It’s so bad that many of these people refuse to even try and lose weight unless there’s something NEW they can do…something that isn’t another pointless gimmick or expensive surgery…

And as you may have guessed - we have that new way.

What's really cool is that our way works even if you’ve failed at weight loss a million times, because real food, water, and sleep are what every human body needs to lose weight safely and sustainably!
That's Right - Given A Choice, More And More People Would Rather Eat Real Food, Drink Water, And Sleep Than Waste Time And Money On Diets And Gimmicks
And that's where the 10 Pound Takedown Challenge comes in...In just 30 days it’ll teach you the SIMPLE steps to losing all the weight you want without shakes, diet pills, diet foods, or exercise.
And that’s the difference here.

When you approach weight loss using real food, water, and sleep, you get to lose stubborn fat while eating real, normal food you can find in any grocery store…

As opposed to getting surgery or spinning your wheels with gimmicks and unsustainable “diets.”

I guess some people prefer to hop from gimmick to gimmick, and I guess that’s fine if they really wanna go that route vs. finally stop worrying about their weight.

But if your goal is to finally get and KEEP the weight off, plus finally FEEL BETTER, gimmicks and diets might actually be what’s holding you back from getting there!

That’s because diets and gimmicks trick you into thinking that your body is broken, and only their gimmick or fad can fix you.

Diets and gimmicks also make you believe there’s something wrong with YOU because you can’t seem to get or keep the weight off.

The Code Red Lifestyle™ is here to show you that your body already KNOWS how to drop weight and start feeling better. It just needs the real food, water, and sleep it’s naturally designed for!

THAT is why Code Red is different.

From dieting at age 5 to down 91 pounds!
I've struggled with my weight my whole life, literally was 5 years old when I started with my first diet group. After trying just about every big program out there I found myself at 42 years old wearing a 48 hour heart monitor over Christmas last year, joint pain so bad I cried almost every morning, popping acid reducers multiple times a day, and just really miserable in general. Enter Code Red! I'm so thankful an acquaintance shared her story. January 2nd this year I began Code Red. I'm down 76 lbs and still losing 91 pounds and keeping it off! My heart palpitations are gone, acid reflux is gone, joint pain is gone, headaches gone, my skin is clear, I have more energy than I've maybe ever had, I'm not foggy brained, I can sit in an arm chair without embarrassment, and I just feel good. I'm so thankful for Code Red!"

This became my very first “why” as I began my CR journey. 70 lbs later, and now in maintenance I begin the new journey of keeping those lbs off for the rest of my life.

Aerobics instructor couldn't lose weight until Code Red!
I had lost weight before through other programs only to slowly gain it back. For two years I was an AFFA certified aerobics instructor and still couldn’t keep the weight off. I had been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, was having spinal injections to combat chronic neck pain every 3 months and I was done. I knew Code Red was different and I wanted to go all in. I wanted to fully commit to changing my lifestyle and not to just losing some weight. I love how healthy I feel, the energy I have in addition to the mental clarity and focus that I had never had before. I have not had a spinal injection since starting Code Red.
When I started Code Red April 8, 2019 I weighed 178 pounds. Today I am 118.6 and I ain’t never going back there!
Code Red worked when gastric bypass surgery failed
I've tried it all, including gastric bypass. Cristy's program is the key!!! Who would have EVER thought I'd wear a size 0-2?!! I'm eternally grateful for my new, healthy self! Thank you Code Red. 💪
From overweight for almost his whole life to down 74 pounds!
I was overweight for basically my whole life. When I peaked at 297 pounds my doctor said, “If you pass 300, don’t come back.” But I didn’t know how to lose weight! I kept telling my wife, “I’m getting too heavy. I could lose to not be so heavy,” and I patted my abundant middle roll. Overweight, pre-diabetic and with heart rhythm issues, I found out about Code Red from my daughter. Then when my wife decided to join a Code Red challenge, I joined in willingly, too. I went on to lose 74 pounds on Code Red and have kept it off for over four years. I also went off statins for cholesterol, which were causing severe muscle aches and discomfort in my shoulders. I dropped statins (under my doctor's supervision) after a month on Code Red and my doctor reduced my blood pressure meds to almost nothing. Now I weighs comfortably less, don't worry about diabetes, and my heart rhythm thing is at least as good as it was. I was diagnosed with and overcame neuroendocrine cancer since joining Code Red, and my surgery and recovery were remarkably fast. I know that's because of Code Red. If you're considering trying Code Red, my question to you would be, “Why not?”
From a "lost cause" to down 45 pounds without exercise
At the end of 2017, I weighed 165 pounds and suffered from blocked veins in my entire left leg, trauma from a fall. My blood pressure was up, I had GERD, and I did not feel very energetic. I had cut out gluten products in desperation, and it helped some because I'd lost a few pounds and needs less proton pump inhibitors. Spring of 2018 I became aware of Code Red and also had joined an Unstoppable Influence challenge, because my attitude sucked and I didn't believe I could EVER improve my health OR state of mind. I considered myself a lost cause. I joined my first Code Red 10 pound takedown June, 2018 and started following the rules a month before. I lost down to 153 a week before the challenge and 149 as I weighed in for it. I got down to 125 within a year and have since lost down to 118 pounds, which I have kept off for over four years. The need for heartburn meds has long since passed. I've been taken off blood pressure meds of any kind. In fact, I take zero prescriptions. And I NEVER get heartburn, plus my leg fares MUCH better with less weight on it. I ain't ever going back!
From struggling with "crap" to down 97 pounds!
Started CR on March 23rd and have not looked back. I used to struggle with eating nothing but crap, and always had some kind of late night snack. Since CR I have more energy, feel good about my food choices, and can literally feel myself getting skinny (from weight that took me almost 19 years of poor choices to gain).
From "letting her weight go" to losing 81 pounds!
I started my journey with code red back in June of 2021 after a little influence from my sister in law. I had been down the weight loss journey many times with several different diet plans and even was a certified yoga instructor several years ago, but due to being in a vehicle accident and a few other life situations I gave up my yoga studio and took a different way with life settled in way more than I should have and let my weight go. The discussion had come up several times between my significant other and myself on finding a way to lose the weight and keep it off. This was something he was interested in doing with me! We together have lost right at 150 pounds and couldn’t imagine going back, it’s a lifestyle! I am so thankful for the support! It’s very simple and has a great community to help answer any questions!
Mother and daughter lose 30 pounds each!
I am 60, my mom is 80. We have each released 30 lbs on the Code Red Lifestyle. I have been binging or dieting the past 45 years. I’ve hated my body for the last 56 years. Then I found CodeRed where I’ve learned to love myself and walk taller. I found that it’s easier to love others as well.
Down 45 pounds and back to her high school weight!
I’ve gained and lost some 50 pounds many times. My friend started Code Red, successfully, as I started yet again to diet. When I stalled, I decided to read the Code Red book and join a 10 pound takedown. In 8 months I had lost back to my high school weight and have kept it off a year. I feel like it makes so much sense and is sustainable.
Down 100 pounds and feeling better than she has in years!
Joined Code Red Lifestyle in August 2021 after watching my friend lose over 100 lbs and share her journey on social media. In July, I attended a work conference and while speaking to my colleagues from the stage… I looked around and in my mind was like “I’m the fattest person in the room.” That is how I felt even if it wasn’t true. I later received kudos for my presentation and lots of laughs. And in my mind. “I don’t want to be the funny fat girl.” That’s it, that was my moment. I joined ten pound takedowns exclusively until starting my home study program with coaching in late Jan 2022. Since joining code red, taken off of metformin in first five months, no more plantar fasciitis and acid reflux. 
Joined Code Red after her doctor recommended it!
Like most, my health journey my entire life has not been easy. I was never considered to be a healthy weight by industry standards, tried every diet, and my all consuming emotional eating kept me from ever achieving my personal health goals. After several years of enduring seven fertility treatments, suffering the loss of seven miscarriages, tackling the mountain of adoption, diagnosed with PCOS, Endometriosis, and Lyme Disease, I found myself at the heaviest and unhealthiest I had ever been. After a camping trip in July 2020, my ankle went out for no reason and I found myself at my doctor's office at a loss for what was wrong - the joint pain was crippling. During our appointment, my Doctor recommended I read Cristy's book, "The Code Red Revolution", hoping to address my pain with what I was eating. I consumed Cristy's book in 2 days, listened to all of her podcasts, signed up for a 10 pound takedown the following week where I lost 15 lbs, and then invested and bet on myself with a custom program. Today, I can say "Hallelujah" I've now lost 85 lbs and counting! My joint pain, brain fog, and fatigue have disappeared, I lost 11 inches in my waist alone, went from a size 20 to a size 6, and am now the smallest I've ever been. I feel like I've witnessed a miracle and give God the glory for making me new again and helping me trust the process. The community of Code Red has and continues to inspire me to keep going and I now feel that I am fully in control of my health and how I want to live my life. I am so thankful for Cristy, this lifestyle, and for her mission to bring hope and healing to all!

Down 65 pounds and fits into her wedding dress again!
Started my code red journey April 22, 2019 at 215.8 pounds after busting the zipper on a size 16 dress a few weeks prior figuring out what dress in my closet I was going to wear for Easter. Answer was none I was too fat!! Hadn’t been able to wear my wedding rings for almost 3 years. I had hit my breaking point and called my friend who had just lost 50 pounds on code red. Signed up for May challenge but started April 22, 2019. One of my goals was to fit into my wedding dress which I tried on May 10th at 207 lbs was 153lbs on sept 24th when I was able to finally zip up. Had lost 54 lbs between pictures. Total weight lost on code red is 65 pounds. Maintaining my goal weight of 150 since Sept 27, 2019.
Down 115 pounds without exercise (because she couldn't exercise due to arthritis)
I truly believed that I had to accept being fat and sick for the rest of my life since I couldn’t exercise to lose weight. I had severe Rheumatoid Arthritis among other health issues and just walking thru the house was difficult. Another Rebel lost over 100 lbs within a year and I believed if she could do it so could I! It truly is the easiest hard thing you’ll do and it’s worth it to feel better than you have ever felt in your life!
She lost 75 pounds!
I started my first 10 pound take down in November 2019 and in October 2020 I have lost 75 pounds and I am now in maintenance. Rebel strong all day long loving life.

I don’t care how many times you’ve tried to lose weight…

I promise you this…

Anyone can lose weight with real food, water, and sleep (more on that below).

Ultimately I want you to know one thing…
If I Can Do This, And My Clients Who’ve Failed At Weight Loss For Decades Can Do This, So Can You!
And Here's Another Reason You Too Can Do This
It took me over 15 years to "figure this out"...

...and another 5 years to perfect it.

That means it’s safe to say that there isn't anything left for you to figure out.

I already did all of the hard work for you.

I figured it all out.

You just need to join this challenge and most important of all - do what it says to do!

That’s it…
Here’s Exactly What You’ll Do In The 10 Pound Takedown Challenge
  • Step 1 - You’ll follow the foods to eat/foods to avoid Code Red foods list
  • ​Step 2 - You’ll drink a specific amount of water each day
  • ​Step 3 - You’ll get a specific amount of sleep each night
  • ​Step 4 - You’ll follow the 10 Code Red Rules to Consistent Weight Loss
  • ​Step 5 - You’ll watch the daily challenge videos that teach you about nutrition, weight loss, and mindset
  • ​Step 6 - You’ll weigh yourself every morning
Here's What Else You're Going To Discover In The 10 Pound Takedown
  • Why salt and fat are not the enemies you think they are (and the one food everyone says is “safe” in moderation, but is WAY more dangerous for you than the fat and salt...fat and salt even take the blame for the obesity and sickness caused by this "safe in moderation" food!)
  • ​The truth and lies about cholesterol (get ready to have your mind blown by what modern science says about cholesterol)
  • ​How “3 meals and 2 snacks a day to keep up your metabolism” may be KEEPING you fat instead of helping you drop weight (and how often you should eat instead)
  • ​How and why holding onto your fat clothes “just in case” is sabotaging your weight loss
  • ​A game-changing and SUPER simple mindset that helps you get through those times when you wanna give up and go back to your old ways because losing weight is "too hard"
  • ​Why throwing out your bathroom scale may be the worst idea EVER (it’s probably not for the reason you think)
  • ​“You are not the problem, the PROBLEM is the problem, so just work the problem!” You’ll learn what that means, how it helps you get the weight off, and especially, how it helps you break free from guilt and shame if you mess up
  • ​Are carbs good or bad? In today’s world, it’s hard to know! You’ll hear me answer this once and for all (and my answer will probably surprise you)
  • ​Exactly how and why cheat meals are keeping you on the weight loss merry-go-round for weeks, months, even YEARS longer than you wanna be
  • ​3 powerful documentaries you can watch to help you further understand why getting and keeping weight off in today’s world is SO freaking hard
  • ​And SO much more!
