Take Control Of Your Life And Shake Your Weight Off With The Shake – It Weight Loss Program.

The Shake – IT Weight Loss Program combined with qualified support and advice from Naturopath Linda Cotone at Melbourne Naturopathy is one of the most effective weight loss programs available.

The Shake-IT Weight Loss Program is a ketogenic diet. This means that when you are eating a balance of protein and carbohydrate foods, your body burns stored fat as your energy fuel. This process is called ketosis.

The Shake – IT Weight Loss Program assists you to lose up to 2 kg per week, whilst preserving muscle mass. Most calorie restricted diets produce disappointing results due to the excessive loss of muscle mass. The loss of muscle reduces your metabolic rate (ability to burn calories ) and increases your likelihood of putting weight back on ( yo-yo dieting ).

The Shake – It Weight Loss Program Involves:

  • 2 Healthy low carbohydrate meals per day A protein & vegetables
  • 1 Shake IT Program meal substitute ( Either a Shake or keto bar or soup)
  • 2 Low carbohydrate protein snacks
  • Measure fat burning Indicators with ketostix
  • Includes healthy oils in the diet
  • Regular exercise: Aiming for 40 minutes, four times daily
  • Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day
  • Regular one on one consultations with Linda the Naturopath
  • Shake – IT Program Booklet with detailed dietary advice
  • Shake – IT Health Journal to track your progress and set your goals
  • Shake – IT Program Recipe Book full of deliciously healthy recipes

Feast and Balance*

Linda has made me aware of how to strike a balance between eating properly and also allowing yourself to occasionally feast with family and friends. Blokes like myself don’t understand kilojoules and calories because we can’t see them. However, Linda tailored her approach to my eating plan around an emphasis on my needs – to assist me in getting the best out of her program.
After 4 months on Linda’s program, I had blood tests taken to monitor the progress of my chronic fatty liver – which I was diagnosed over 10 years ago. The results of the blood test showed that the chronic condition had gone! A truly sensational result!

Linda’s program has given me an awareness on how to eat properly and the importance of regular exercise. The program has changed my life – I now have more energy and my health and fitness have significantly improved. I recommend Linda’s program to anyone. In fact, I recommended the program to my best friend – my wife – who has also had fantastic results! Thank you, Linda, for putting life back into me!

Trying to conceive*

I came to Linda at a time where I was feeling unhealthy, overweight and had been trying to conceive my second child for a year. I knew that I had a hormone imbalance but Linda also helped me to identify other issues with my health. By working on my health issues holistically I was able to see great results. I was always exhausted and generally feeling bad and stressed. I was one of those people that was eating ok (mostly healthy) and exercising moderately yet still wasn’t seeing results in my health at all. I went to Linda for help as I was struggling to find a way to improve my weight as well as fall pregnant. Over the following 14 weeks Linda helped me with my weight loss (lost 15kg) all up as well as help me understand which foods to eat, how much, how often and what they do to my body. This understanding is what really helped me get through times when I did feel like giving up but it would only last a moment because I was seeing such wonderful results. My husband started the program also and that helped us both lose weight and support each other. I also starting to feel calmer and was able to handle stressful situations easier. I haven’t felt this energetic and healthy in years!

Lastly, 14 weeks later I did manage to conceive and now expecting baby number 2. Linda has also been a support for me through my pregnancy and all my test results keep showing how much my health has improved since my first pregnancy. And it shows, I feel much less nauseous and sick this time around. Although I’m right at the business end of the pregnancy, I know that when I do need to lose the excess weight gained during this time, I have the knowledge and the support to do it all again! Linda is my health practitioner that I see for all my health concerns and will continue to do so.



I was trying to lose weight for a long time with no success. Finally, I made my decision to visit you and within 2 weeks, i had lost 1.5 kilos. I am so happy and can now fit into my old clothes again.

Thank you very much, a very happy customer!



Is the diet safe, are there any contraindications?

The diet is not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding. If you have any medical conditions it’s always best to check with your Medical Practitioner prior to commencing the diet.

How long does the diet go for?

You can do the diet for as long as it takes you to achieve your goal weight or until you have had enough.

Will I put all of my weight back on once I go back to normal eating?

No. If you follow the wellness or maintenance diet after you have lost your weight you will continue to maintain your weight.

Do I continue to take my prescribed medication and supplements?

Yes you can continue with any supplements you have been taking and do not stop any prescribed medication.

Can I exercise while on the program?

Yes it is recommended that you exercise at least four times per week for 40 minutes.

I’m getting hungry what do I do?

Make sure you are drinking enough water. Often people think they are hungry but they are actually dehydrated. Make sure you are eating the correct foods and the right amount. Ensure you’re are eating frequently enough and not going too long without eating. Make sure you are eating enough protein.

This program puts you into ketosis. Is this dangerous?

On the Shake – It program the body is placed into a state of dietary ketosis. This is totally safe and effective method of losing weight. When the body is in ketosis, you will not feel hungry. People often confuse ketosis with ‘ketoacidosis’ which is a life-threatening condition in diabetics.

Can I still go out for dinner?

Absolutely! There is always something to order from a restaurant that will not interfere with the Shake – It program. For example steak/ chicken/ fish combined with vegetables or salads but be wary of dressings and sauces.

I have a family; will it be difficult to do this program?

No! This program is very easy to manage if you cook for a family. You don’t have to cook separate meals and your family will benefit from a healthier eating plan.
