FASTer Way to Fat Loss Facts:

What is FASTer Way to Fat Loss?

FASTer Way to Fat Loss (FWTFL) is a sustainable lifestyle program that uses nutrition, intermittent fasting and workouts to lose fat and increase muscle. It is an online program with a personal FASTer Way Certified Coach. Your coach will teach and guide you through the program and be there for you for the duration of the program.

How Does it work?

You sign up for the 8-week program and you get immediate access to the FWTFL portal with all the workouts and meal plans and you are added to your coaches closed Facebook group for your specific start date.

Your first week is prep-week, which is where your coach will teach you everything you need to know about the program, calculating your macros, intermittent fasting and the details about the workouts.

The remaining 7 weeks your coach guides you through the program. Your coach will motivate you daily and have daily check-ins to give you tips, reminders and help you along the way.

So, when your 8 weeks are done, you roll right into membership where you can continue on your FWTFL journey. It will keep you motivated, accountable and you will continue to have access to the amazing workouts. You can cancel if you don’t want to continue on with membership.

How much does it cost & whats included?

The 8-week program is $199 and here is what you get:

  • Personal Certified FASTer Way to Fat Loss Coach
  • Immediate access to the FWTFL Portal that includes
    • meal plan w/suggested food broken into carb/fats/proteins
    • sample cookbook
    • home workouts
    • gym workouts
  • Access to your coaches closed Facebook group dedicated to your round
    • live trainings
    • daily motivation, tips, tricks
    • accountability

How to sign up?

Signing up is super easy. But, the most important part is getting a good coach and signing up through her personal link. My coach is Jocelyn James and she is amazing! She keeps her groups small for personalized attention. You can join her group here. If you don’t sign up through a coach and sign up directly from the FASTer Way site you will get put into a very large group with an unkown coach.

What type of workout equipment is needed?

The FWTFL program includes both home and gym workouts. If working out at home you will need handheld weights and access to a sturdy chair or bench.

Can I drink coffee?

Yes! Even though you are fasting in the mornings, you can still drink coffee and tea. If you like creamer FWTFL recommends Nut Pods to help keep you in your fasting state. And, if you like sweetener they recommend Stevia. I drank my BCAA’s every morning. This one is the only one approved by FWTFL. It does not have any artificial sweeteners. Tip: it tastes delicious ice cold, but warm, not so much!

Can I drink wine?

Yes! Yes, you can! Just make sure it fits into your macros!

Is there anything I can’t eat?

FWTFL would like you to eliminate gluten and dairy from your diet. I have gluten intolerance, so I don’t consume gluten anyway. As for dairy, I chose not to eliminate this from my diet. I love cheese!

My Opinions on FWTFL

The PRO’s:

  • Flexability – I am able to eat what I want as long as it fits into my macros
  • Carbs – I am able to eat carbs! And, lots of them! I am eating things that I have been depriving myself of for years like like rice, pasta and bread!
  • Fats – on low carb days, I get to eat so many delicious fats- bacon!
  • Food variety – I get to eat so many different types of foods.
  • Not restrictive – yes, you can have wine, cocktails, ice cream! You can eat all.the.things in moderation and as long as fits into your macros.
  • Progress not perfection mentality – it’s not the end of the world if you have a bad day! Move on and do better tomorrow! I had plenty of days like those!
  • It’s sustainable! This is not a crazy diet where you can’t wait to be done and go back to eating normal. You are eating normal! In fact, I am eating more now than ever. I am just eating smarter.
  • Personal coach – I would not have been able to do this without Jocelyn. I messaged her so many times and she was always there for me. She is amazing! She helped me dial in my macros after realizing something was off.
  • Accountability – having daily check-ins are so helpful! There were days that I missed, but it’s okay! Again, progress not perfection.
  • Workouts – I love the workouts! They are easy to access on any device and there are demonstration videos with modifications for each move.
  • Knowledge – I have learned so much about food! And, how to eat better and smarter.

The CON’s:

I personally didn’t have any cons, but I have heard of a few from others…

  • Failure to sign up with a specific coach. If you sign up directly through the FASTer way site you will be thrown into a large group leaving you with no one-on-one personalized coaching. Again sign up with a coach, here is the link for Jocelyn’s group.
  • The need to track macros – again, I personally didn’t find this a problem. But, it can be time consuming to have to input your food daily and some people don’t like this part. I repeat a lot of meals, so that makes it so much easier.

My Why

The main reason that I decided to try FWTFL is because I watched several women on Instagram go through the program. I saw how much they loved the program and I was witnessing results with my own eyes! I saw that they were eating a lot of food and they were shrinking before my own eyes. And, they seemed to really love it!

What I wanted to gain from this program:

  • learn how to eat correctly – portion and calorie control and learn how to calculate and eat for my macros.
  • lose fat
  • tone up by body
  • find something sustainable so I could maintain the fat loss and stay toned beyond the program.

I felt that I achieved all of the above!

My FWTFL Results

I did not intend on writing a blog post about my FWTFL experience, nor did I intend to share my before & after pictures. BUT, when I find something that works and something I love, then I have a desire and need to share! If I can do this program and achieve great results, then you can, too!

My end result was a loss of 5.4 lbs and about an inch all over by body with a total loss of 12.75″. I think you can see the most difference in my week 3 progress pictures, but I actually lost the most weight during weeks 3-6.

Faster Way To Fat Loss FWTFL Honest Review Before and After Pictures

*My round was 6 weeks. FWTFL upgraded the 8- week program after I started my round.


I believe that you can learn everything you need in the 8 week program to achieve continued results.

At $199, that’s only $25/week for a personal coach, meal plan and workouts! It’s a no-brainer if you ask me!

The VIP membership portion, which I have not tried or signed up for, seems pricy to me at $99/mo.

In my opinion, if you are self-motivated, you can continue forward on your own without the VIP membership program. You have already been intermittent fasting, have learned to eat properly and for your macros and how the workouts correlate with the eating days.

BUT, if you are someone that needs a accountability, then you can stay in program as a VIP member. You will have your coach cheering you on and holding you accountable in a Facebook community with other VIP members and you will have complete access to all the workouts, meal plans and all the FWTFL portal contains.

  1. I love that this was an 8 week program and you still were able to see results. That’s so cool that you get a virtual certified personal coach. It also sounds great that you’re still able to eat in too many of the things that you enjoy but just all in moderation.

  2. Holly!! Love reading your review on the program!! You had me sold weeks ago on the program. I am just in week 2 and really liking the program ❤️ I am so happy you have shared your experience and recipes!!!

  3. Amazing results!!! And you looked so fit at the beginning! Those last lbs are the hardest to shed even. This is a great review of the program-thank you for sharing.

  4. Hi Holly,

    I am considering this program, but I am a fully plant based eater.

    Is this possible to do this plan being plant based?

    Thank you so much,Veronica

  5. I want to join FWTFL to get a handle on portion control and how to use macros; 2 questions: one, macro counting sounds so complicated and time-consuming and I’m scared of that- tell me it’s easy to ‘get’.
    Two, how much does it cost after the initial $199 if you want to keep up with the provided workouts?
    Thanks so much – your story is really motivating!

    1. Great questions! Jocelyn helps you figure out your macros and after about 3 weeks, it becomes really easy. It’s easier if you usually eat the same foods for the most part. After 2 years, I don’t really count them anymore, because I pretty much know how to stay in my limits. However, if I gain a few pounds, I can count my macros for a week or two and then I am back on track. After the 6 weeks, it’s $79 to stay in the VIP program and you still get access to everything including Jocelyn! I stay in it for the workouts. I LOVE them! 30 minutes! However, even you don’t stay in the program, you will learn all you need in those 6 weeks and you can workout on your own if you want. Please let me know if you have any other questions! Feel free to email me. 🙂

  6. Hi Holly!!

    First of all….Thank you Thank you Thank you for sharing your amazon finds. I have ordered soo much and love all of it.
    I have a couple of questions about this program. I am a total coffee lover with French vanilla creamer. Don’t think I can give that up but am considering trying the nut pods. I am not desperate but getting there. I have been working out (I do classes) at least 4 to 5 days a week. For the most part I eat healthy and when I don’t its nothing crazy. I am 54, I had a total hysterectomy 8 1/2 years ago (I am currently on hormone replacement therapy) and since then I have put on 20 lbs. I am 5’2″ and weight 113. I can not lose my belly and back fat for anything. It is driving me crazy. I have tried everything but fasting (because of my love for coffee and the creamer of course. 🙂
    What are your thoughts or suggestions?

    Thank you,


    1. Hi Judy!
      Thank you so much for all the love! I am so happy that you are loving what I share! Have you tried CoolSculpting? I had the same issue and Coolsculpting helped with that stubborn fat that diet and exercise wouldn’t touch.

  7. Hi Holly,

    I am ready to sign up – if I click your link to sign up with Jocelyn, will I assume I will have her ?
    Also, what’s a good Nutpod flavor you personally like and how much do you put in your cup of coffee? Have you tried the cinnamon swirl or the coffee cake? If so, your honest opinion?
    Thanks again!

    1. I am so excited that you signed up! You will love it! My current favorite Nutpods is the sweet cream. I love them all except the oat milk ones. I always get the almond or coconut varieties.

  8. I have so many questions! One more!
    I have a son – a teenage son and we like to eat dinner together as much as we can; how do you adjust your unique eating plan when the family may eat differently? You spending lots time in kitchen?
    Thanks AGAIN!

    1. I do not spend a lot of time in the kitchen! No way! lol! My family eats what I make. If I am making a low carb meal then they will eat that, but I will also make rice or a pasta size for them. For instance, if I am making the keto egg roll in a bowl, I will eat it without rice and they will eat it over rice. I hope that helps. 🙂

  9. Hi there! I am thinking about joining Jocelyn’s group but I’m going to Mexico for a week at the beginning of Feb. I’m wondering if it would be a waste to be in the middle of this program while on vacay or if I should wait until her next one starts. Any thoughts?

  10. Thank you for your blog-are you still following this program? Also when did you complete your first round of The Faster Way?
