Transform From Home Contest with Kat James

We're celebrating Kat James’ Total Transformation 20th Anniversary with a Transform-From-Home Challenge! Find out how you can enter and start making lasting weight loss and health changes.

Heading out the door? Read this article on the new Outside+ app available now on iOS devices for members! Download the app.


We have featured the groundbreaking work of award-winning author and leptin pioneer Kat James for many years. With her Wise Fat-Burner columns and feature articles, James has mentored and shared numerous dramatic reader health success stories, including her own. Her on-site and online Total Transformation Programs (over 150 worldwide to date) have helped hundreds heal their bodies, biochemistry, and relationships with food.

From former heart patient Janet Hunter who joined James in Asheville, N.C., to former food addict Brittney McMartin who joined James in Scotland, to Carla Ellsman, a formerly overweight, breathing-challenged singer in Hawaii, to the Bayer Family, who overcame obesity, Candida, and ADHD since their time with Kat in London—all of them started their transformations at home!
