I feel like this is this first time I have been mentally and emotionally ready to tackle my “baby fat” since I had my baby 15 years ago!!!

FAQ: Who will be my health coach?
Meet your coach: Dori Martin, FDN-P, CMT
Dori has been working in the world of health and wellness for 10 years and is passionate about helping others regain amazing health and vitality. During a stressful life event, she left a hectic and demanding career in the corporate world to pursue work-life balance.
She became a massage therapist and health educator, specializing in complex injury management and recovery. It was during this time that she discovered a genuine love of helping people pursue healing, self-care, and personal transformation.
When a family health challenge led her to dig deeper into the world of healing, she became a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. With the principles she learned about building health from a functional health perspective, she saw amazing results with health conditions ranging from premature aging to autoimmune disease, chronic fatigue, and even a cancer diagnosis.
Dori now works as a health coach to assist clients with chronic conditions discover how diet and lifestyle may be contributing to health issues, then begin to turn it around. Working with her client’s unique needs, she coaches them through customized steps to rekindle (or discover) a life of health and wellness.
Dori discovered JJ Virgin’s ground-breaking book, The Virgin Diet, when investigating the best elimination diet for her clients. JJ’s gift of simplifying complicated concepts and using minimal effort for maximum results made Dori a huge fan. Through JJ’s program, Dori was also able to free herself from a life-long dysfunctional relationship with food.
Reading JJ Virgin’s book, Warrior Mom, and then participating in JJ’s online program, Miracle Mindset Academy, also helped Dori through a challenging time when her fiancé was struggling with a terminal cancer diagnosis. Through JJ’s weekly lessons and the amazing Facebook community of support JJ created, Dori was able to overcome many of life’s toughest challenges, and find opportunities for growth, healing, and gratitude.
It is a dream come true for Dori to have the opportunity to be on JJ’s team, and to share and apply her message of the importance of self-care; building health through diet and lifestyle; and working on your mindset to become the best version of yourself.
She is excited to have the opportunity to collaborate with you to achieve the happiness and optimal well-being you deserve!

Simple Science-Based Solutions to Better Your Life!
With all the options you can choose from, you deserve to know the differences between what we’ve created for you and what’s out there on the market, as well as why we go to such great lengths to ensure the quality of your supplements.
Effectiveness and Bioavailability
First and foremost, the products you find here are crafted from the highest quality ingredients available. Rather than selecting ingredients for shelf life, we formulate supplements to enhance YOUR LIFE! That is why we opt for top-notch ingredients and focus on bioavailability and benefits. It might not matter to you that we use certain forms of nutrients instead of cheaper versions, but your body knows the difference.
Produced in a Family-Owned Facility that Does Third-Party Testing
A high percentage of supplements don’t even test positive for the ingredients they claim to contain! To avoid any risk of a big manufacturer cutting corners on the products we create for you, JJ made arrangements with a family-owned facility she knows well. (She was a sales representative for them long before she wrote four NY Times bestselling books to help people avoid unnecessary weight gain and painful exposure to food intolerances!) She went to the people she trusted, the people she’s seen ship back countless ingredients after their independent third-party tests did not confirm quality and efficacy. Any idea what happens to those returned ingredients? Yep – you guessed it. They go on to another manufacturer who does not invest in outside testing.
The best part of JJ’s arrangement is that this is a family operation being passed down from generation to generation. That means no risk of a big buyout that would do away with the quality control measures JJ demands from the facility that creates your specialty supplement formulas.
Taste & Consistency
You won’t find a creamier shake that provides as much protein, with as little sugar, and ZERO exposure to the 7 high food intolerance foods. You won’t find bars that avoid the harmful proteins in gluten, soy, dairy, egg, peanuts, and corn that taste anywhere near as delicious as what JJ has created for you. Your satisfaction is guaranteed, and you can rest assured the shakes and bars you fall in love with now will remain consistent in their tasty flavor and creamy texture.

You will see lots of useful information here on the site to help you with your decision-making processes, from videos that describe usage and efficacy to testimonials from customers like you.

JJ Virgin owned a beautiful high-end gym in Palm Springs and catered to the Hollywood elite who needed to prepare for starring roles and world tours. She was the nutrition and fitness expert on Dr. Phil and other major TV shows (ranging from Freaky Eaters to The Doctors), and print media authorities relied on her expertise. She had all the success a certified nutritionist and trainer could want. But when she made an important discovery – almost by accident – she left all that behind to stop the needless suffering and weight gain caused by undiagnosed food intolerances.
Nutrition and fitness theory has always relied on the calories-in-calories-out model that declares your weight is simply a function of how much you eat and exercise. However, JJ saw firsthand that this was definitely not the case. Even when she sequestered challenging weight loss cases at a retreat where she controlled what they ate and how much they worked out, there were people who still GAINED weight. So she got curious – very curious.
Since JJ supported the foremost doctors and NDs with their most challenging patients, she had access to the best nutraceuticals and tests. Combining data from the doctors she worked with and clients who trusted her to find a solution to their non-stop weight struggles, JJ found that there were 7 foods that cause the body to react by protecting itself with extra fat, inflammation, skin issues, and more. She narrowed the offending foods down to the 7 most common and used that as the starting point for what evolved into her NY Times bestselling books The Virgin Diet and The Virgin Diet Cookbook.
The 7 High Food Intolerance Foods (she dubbed them the 7 HiFI foods) were removed from the diets of hundreds of willing clients for 21 days, long enough for antibody production to slow or stop. Then, one at a time for one week each, the 7 foods were reintroduced. The results were astonishing! The simple removal of these foods reduced weight significantly, plus eliminated joint pain, headaches, and skin issues, leaving both JJ and her test subjects happily shocked. The reintroduction process caused the symptoms to return, widely more apparent since antibodies were no longer present. This inspired a full-scale test of the Virgin Diet protocol and, later, the launch of the books.
You might be wondering what all this has to do with the products you’re looking at here on the JJ Virgin Store? To answer that question, you need to know that the 7 HiFI foods JJ discovered were corn, gluten, eggs, dairy, soy, peanuts, and sugar or artificial sweeteners.
(You can learn more about the 7 HiFI foods in the free PDF download HERE.)
As it turns out, most shakes, bars, and supplements include one or more of these foods under sneaky names that you’d have to be a food detective to recognize. JJ had a rapidly growing family of people relying on her to guide them away from these 7 Hi FI foods, and that meant they needed safe protein shakes at the very least. One majorly successful part of the Virgin Diet is starting your day with a power-packed protein shake, but… JJ could not find ONE brand on the market that met her stringent requirements and tasted anywhere near delicious.
She went back to her roots, to the same community of high-end nutraceutical creators, doctors, and NDs that she had first shared her discoveries with. She banded together a network of caring professionals to source the best ingredients and formulate a tasty line of nutritious shakes and bars, as well as exceptionally high-quality supplements that are free from the 7 foods. She also built and educated the team that supports you when you shop here on this store.
It has been a long and amazing journey in order for JJ Virgin and this entire team to touch so many lives. So what’s your health goal? How can we help you? Check out some of the stories of people just like you on the reviews tab, and then reach out to let us know how we can best support you.
