What is Kat James' Total Transformation? It is the original, science-based, transformational nutritional and lifestyle protocol pieced together, unguided, by award-winning author, Kat James, to save her own life from autoimmune, liver, and eating disorders, while dramatically transforming her shape, appearance, and relationship with food beyond recognition, permanently, nearly thirty years ago. 

James' Program has been featured or endorsed at prestigious institutions such as Omega Institute and Canyon Ranch, as well as by functional medicine, fertility, neurology, dental, and other clinics and spas throughout the U.S. and beyond. 

With a wide variety of biochemical effects that have been consistently verified in medical labs and in published research on the hormone leptin, Kat James' Method has been honed over twenty years of on-site "living along with" her attendees and closely observing the individual thresholds at which a unique biochemical "flip" into a dramatically-transformed physical state and relationship with food quickly and consistently takes place***. This unique state of being is achieved in an increasingly high percentage of cases, with most feeling a pronounced, body-wide and mental "change” on day three or four of the on-site process.

Total Transformation® features James’ original, four-module, 12-hour educational curriculum for achieving a unique biochemical "flip,” which generally ushers in not only an immediately altered relationship with food (even in those feeling they have no issues), but head-to-toe transformation affecting virtually all body systems at the cellular level. Beware of online “leptin foods” or “leptin diets” and even imitators claiming to be “Kat James’ diet” as they are counterfeit and include myriad loopholes, deal-breakers, and pitfalls inherent in the above-mentioned diets. PLEASE NOTE: Kat James’ books are not designed to achieve leptin sensitivity, which is a highly individualized and precise protocol.

Leptin is the body's biochemical "compass" and all-systems regulator.  It's already in your body; it’s just not functioning in the vast majority of men or women. A minimum of 12 hours has been found to be critical to understanding James’ principles for long-term harnessing of leptin’s power. Leptin sensitivity is not regained through drugs or supplements. It can only be achieved and, more importantly, maintained through James’ individualized and symptom-calibrated, counter-intuitive nutritional and innovative culinary strategies.
No More Willpower Required: Because of leptin's unprecedented satiety mechanism, zero self-deprivation is involved. No online "keto" diets or online leptin diets or "leptin foods" can create true leptin sensitivity or maintain the no-willpower “zone” afforded by James’ Method.

Beyond Keto, Fasting, Paleo, and CR: James’ one-of-a kind protocol far surpasses the biochemical capabilities of keto, Paleo, fasting (it avoids the dangers), and CR (calorie restriction) diets. Recommended by a growing number of top doctors around the world, it is also a real-time lifestyle experience refined by three decades (James has conducted 109 on-site group Programs at this writing, and over fifty online Programs) of firsthand, dawn-to-dusk observation of countless transforming individuals with widely-varying physical challenges (and resolutions)—both common and rare.

The Science on Leptin Sensitivity: Widely misunderstood in its pursuit, the "master hormone," leptin, when fully functional, is the ultimate "bio-hacker's" tool, proven to regulate not only appetite and energy production, but also one's immune system, thyroid, adrenal glands, tissue repair (faster healing and workout recovery), autonomic nervous system ("rest and digest" vs. "fight or flight"), dopamine pathway (affecting addiction, Parkinson's, pain, and more), inflammation response, blood sugar, microbiome, stem cell and AMPK activation, mTOR (anti-aging vs. undesired cell replication), endocannabinoid function (including pain reduction, even without CBD), sex hormone (muscle formation, libido, reproductive), and much more.  
Functioning leptin (not to be confused with the plant toxin, lectin), in modern times, is extremely rare, and not regained through drugs or supplements. It can only be achieved through individualized and symptom-calibrated, counter-intuitive food strategy. Because of leptin's unprecedented satiety mechanism, zero self-deprivation is involved. No online "keto" diets or online leptin diets or "leptin foods" can create true leptin sensitivity.  

"In my international research and education to the scientific and medical communities I have not encountered a retreat or Program that so consistently produces (and, more importantly, maintains) the biochemical affects on leptin and mTOR as Kat James' Total Transformation does."       
                                      —Dr. Ron Rosedale, world authority on leptin and insulin  
A Stunning Track Record of “Transformation”*** (no claims are made, however) of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, insomnia, IBS, Candida, arthritis, bone loss, PMS, hot flashes, food sensitivities, chronic fatigue, insomnia, skin rashes, depression, anxiety, ADHD, epilepsy, eating disorders, Parkinsons, neuropathies, dementia, all types of autoimmune disorders, and much more, have been doctor-verified.***  Most incredibly, leptin resolves the need for willpower and ends the struggle of sticking with a regimen. And James' culinary innovation is notoriously sumptuous and empowering—even for the kitchen- and time-challenged.

Below is a sampling of "before and after" photos of Kat James (center) and some of her clients, for whom doctors verified resolutions (far beyond the visual weight changes) of serious health issues, after exhaustive medical interventions failed:

Kat James' Method is for those who are ready to move on from the “suffering and willpower” paradigms and experience a quantum leap in benefit beyond what other approaches such as fasts, raw, vegan, gluten-free, Paleo, and even ketogenic diets or spa visits have afforded them.

Total Transformation® Participant Testimonials

Diane Lane, Academy Award-Winning Actress:

A trainer and doctor I worked with, recommended I work with Kat James while in NYC to prepare for a stage role at Lincoln Center, and also to help a family member. Kat's program was a key factor in my looking and feeling my best for the role and gave me an incredible tool for myself and my family going forward.


Emily F., CNHP, aesthetician, and Master Formulator:

“I can’t believe what I’m feeling. After just a few days, my eyes and my head are so clear. My bloat and facial puffiness are almost gone. My shape is changing. This is unbelievable to me because this goes against all my training as a health educator.”


Former COO of Houston Power and Gas, Georgianna N. (as featured in GRAND magazine), and husband:

“The first time around I went from a size 14 to a ten in about a month, and more importantly my thyroid notules went away, as did my seborrhea to the point where I could wear sleeveless tops again. No more steroid creams are needed. I have watched the circles under my eyes and the crepey skin on the back of my hands almost disappear. All of my blood work has dramatically improved. The second time I lost another four dress sizes and got my husband to attend. Now he no longer smokes and is on a totally different path as we enter retirement. This may well have saved our marriage.”


Jeff Cotter (as featured in Better Nutrition):

“I have lost 55 lbs and my blood sugar is now normal. My skin and hair are much softer. And yet I’m only just getting started with this. I have not felt like this since I was a teenager. I have tried other diets and none truly ended my very desire for what I now see as poisonous foods.”


Former Diabetic Grandmother Sue Kirwan (as featured in GRAND magazine):

“I am no longer diabetic and have lost 36 pounds (four dress sizes) in three months, and regained my oval face shape."

  Typical Results***: Though no claims are made, short-term benefits typical of 5-day Total Transformation® Programs include pronounced changes in appetite, swelling, bloating, fluid weight, sleep, energy, skin, and mood, with the most marked transformation seen by day three or four of the actual retreat. Those who choose to execute fully the included, Jumpstart module which is given at the time of registration, may experience many of the above changes far in advance of the event.
