SOTA is the hardest weightloss program that I have done. It is EXTREMELY strict. That being said, I am losing weight. I’d only recommend it for those that are truly committed to losing weight, and willing to stay on program, not cheat at all. I have packed my own meals and snacks for things like a Super Bowl party, a cabin trip, etc. if you’re 100 percent devoted SOTA is for you! I’ve lost 21lbs in 7 weeks. Halfway to my goal.
