Join Us for Kat's first Program in Stunning Coronado, California, April 16th Through 21st!

We are thrilled to bring Kat James' Total Transformation® to a beautiful home just minutes from the breathtaking beaches and exclusive town of Coronado Island, CA. Just minutes from the San Diego airport and the home and inspiration (Coronado was his “Emerald City”!) of L. Frank Baum’s and his beloved novel The Wizard of Oz. Immerse yourself in the transformative power of Total Transformation® and enjoy warm sunny walks to the inspiring shores and enchanting town of Coronado within minutes walking distance of our gorgeous Program home.

What is Kat James' Total Transformation®? It is the real-time experience of the transformational blueprint and a mission pieced together by Kat James to save her own life more than twenty years ago, with biochemical effects that have only just begun to be understood and validated in scientific research. It is also an experience that has been transforming the bodies and lives of countless others since 2000. Honed over twelve years of "living along with" her attendees and closely observing the individual thresholds at which a unique biochemical "flip" into a different state of physical being and dramatically transformed relationship with food, Kat's Program is designed for those who are READY for a quantum leap in benefit beyond what any approach (including fasts, raw, vegan, gluten-free, and Paleo…) has afforded them, featuring:

  • An acclaimed, life-changing experience with a rare track record of dramatically transforming the bodies, minds, and lives of its participants, and even their families
  • Kat James' renowned body- and health-transforming"decadent" cuisine:  "In my international research and education to the scientific and medical communities I have not encountered a high-end culinary experience that so consistently produces the biochemical affects on leptin and mTOR as Kat James' Total Transformation does," stated Dr. Ron Rosedale, a world authority on leptin and metabolic health. By day three most people will feel "the change" (see numerous dramatic published success stories at
  • A crash course in kitchen mastery of Kat James' life-changing cuisine: Even if you thought you weren't the cooking type, you'll suddenly be able to "throw together" sumptuous dishes that will wow your family while transforming your shape, neurological, metabolic, hormonal, dermatological, and even inner ecological health—usually dramatically.
  • Highest-end nutritional and personal care experiences and options to expand your knowledge and give you sanctuary from toxic exposures
  • An educational journey with Kat James to troubleshoot areas of self-sabotage, strategize logistics and resources, and solidify your own transformation game-plan
  • In-depth kitchen mastery of Kat's Low-Impact cuisine, including tasty desserts, "impossible" bread, pasta, and baked good upgrades (far beyond just gluten-free) elixirs and therapeutic, exotic, and tasty beverages.
  • An optional Oscar-caliber makeover by Kat James (Kat was a top celebrity makeup expert) and photo shoot will be available for an additional $375 for five day attendees and it will be included for seven-day and helper attendees.
  • An incredibly inspiring, non-judgmental environment afforded by a diverse group of people with a common goal. You'll have just as much of a blast by yourself as you will if you bring a companion (recommended ONLY for people who are seriously motivated to break out of long-standing health issues and are ready to let go of everything they thought they knew about the right way to eat. Although her book is not the same (not as biochemically strict, nor as experientially decadent) as Total Transformation® it is recommended that attendees read The Truth About Beauty (it is for both men and women) and familiarize themselves with the uncommon track record of this Program by visiting
  • An enchanted location to inspire your experience

Here are the typical physical results experienced during one of Kat's program:

  Days 2-3: Dramatically improved energy, reduced puffiness in the face and abdomen, sugar, starch, alcohol, and caffeine cravings subside.
  Day 4: All food, caffeine, and alcohol cravings are typically gone (even in the formerly food-obsessed). Calmer skin, clearer eyes, looser clothing, deeper sleep, more stable moods, re-sensitized taste-buds, improved digestion, a new perspective on personal care can all be expected. You’ll likely see a glimpse of someone you once knew (or never knew was in you) in your end-of-week professional makeover photo.

Sacramento retreat host and Sky Ridge Ranch director, Barbara Thompson, had this to say about her recent Total Transformation® experience:

“Kat- I am feeling FANTASTIC! Life after the Denver program is a whole new way of moving through the world. Am mostly amazed at lack of desire to regress. Just not interested in the old choices- as you kept saying would happen.”

  Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
  Q: What is the Schedule at Kat’s Program?
Kat delivers her educational program (so boring sounding, compared to how fascinating hearing it from her really is). Her talks follow four parts: 1) Shedding 2) Feeding, 3) Cultivating, and 4) Living Beauty. We highly recommend that your friend read Kat’s book prior to attending, as Kat believed the benefits from the program are limited if the person has not taken that step, because the lifestyle shift is not necessarily intuitive and the principles are very specific and unique (and incomparably effective). Kat does not publish details about the program, but because so many national stories of dramatic physical transformation have been published about her program, and because foremost experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola (one of the most read natural healers in the world) and Dr. Ron Rosedale endorse her approach, people generally come with a very high degree of faith and high expectations, which are almost always wildly surpassed, as you can read from the link above. Kat also spends plenty of one on one time with each attendee which is key to the program’s impact.
  Q: Will I miss my favorite binge foods or desserts?
No! Not only will you experience a week without blood sugar spikes and learn what it’s like to be truly freed from cravings and negative food issues, you’ll, at the same time, be empowered to address every possible food craving, from salty to crunchy to chewy, to chocolaty —without the fat-storing consequences. Strategic beverages such as non-alcoholic spritzers, hot and iced herbal coffees and teas as well as purified water are available at all times. No alcoholic beverages are available.
  Q: What is the experience like? Is it casual?
The great thing is that Kat makes everyone feel so comfortable (I am a bit introverted, so it was amazing how comfortable I was immediately). I attended a Mountain Chalet Program. She’s not a fan of rigid scheduling and allows the group’s individual issues and level determine her pacing and emphasis. This is so much more valuable, Kat says, than when she did large group programs. She gave most of her talks with us while we ate so we could  have plenty of time to relax and talk with her individually, enjoy the amazing place or take excursions if we wanted. There are always such  great smells and activity in the kitchen, and free treatments going on, that  it is more of true rejuvenating and decompressing vacation than I could have ever imagined getting at a spa or anywhere else. And the fact that you are getting a makeover with Kat, and georgeous photos is pretty special (Kat was Martha Stewart’s makeup artist). Kat provides an excellent overview of various products including green and natural products and organic foods, elixirs, oils, and spices, really inspires you to turn your own home and kitchen into a place to rejuvenate yourself and your connection with nature and your family when you return home.
  Q: What if I follow a special diet? Does undertaking my approach mean you’d have to give up being vegetarian or a raw foodist, or a blood-type dieter? How is it for gluten-free folks?
Kat’s “low-impact” principles are often the missing “layer” that could catapult the healing potential of all kinds of dietary approaches. Kat’s approach is already very friendly to gluten-intolerant individuals because most grain products are avoided. The Program benefits will be limited in strict vegans.
  Q: Can I be treated for ailments at Kat’s Program?
Kat makes no claims to diagnose, treat, or cure disease (and she has everyone sign a disclaimer with their understanding of that). Those being treated for disease are encouraged to seek their doctor’s supervision and approval before undertaking therapies or dietary changes based on Kat James’ approach. That said, the track record of amazingly transformed people in the wake of Kat’s programs speaks for itself. You and your friend(s) will appreciate the experience and benefit from it much more if you read some of the inspiring success stories in Kat’s book or her monthly column in Better Nutrition magazine, available at many independent health food stores. One recent article chronicled the  transformation (times three) of a woman who brought her two daughters to the program; the mother and 14-year-old ended their eating disorder and their nine-year-old is no longer a sugar addict.
  Can’t Get Away? Be Sure to Look Into Kat’s 8-Week, Full-Curriculum Total Transformation® Teleprograms If timing or finances do not allow, you might consider “attending” a full-curriculum Total Transformation® Basic Jumpstart or Mastery TeleProgram from your favorite chair at home is your answer. You can even miss sessions and listen to recordings of them from your home. What an ideal format the Electrograph turned out to be for those who could not afford the time or expense to get away for the full destination Program experience. In all survey responses, the pacing was said to be pretty much perfect. For more information, please call 828-625-0345 or click here

Total Transformation® Participant Testimonials

Amy English

“I’ve lost over eighty-five pounds. Most importantly, I’ll never use food as a drug again.”


Emily F.

“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.”


Georgianna N.

“The first time around weight came off and my seborrhea went away to the point where I could wear sleeveless tops again and didn’t need steroid creams. I have watched the circles under my eyes and the crepey skin on the back of my hands almost disappear. My thyroid nodules actually shrank and all of my blood work was 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

“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.”


Sue Kirwan

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