Life Wellness Lab

I help frustrated women and men over 40 years old lose weight, restore their metabolism, gain more energy, and ultimately feel empowered and knowledgeable on how to optimize their drive in all areas of life

Are you frustrated by low-fat diets with no results?  Do you think there is more to weight loss than exercising more and eating less? Curious to what triggers cravings, hunger, and weight gain?

Does this sound like you?

  • You’re feeling exhausted all of the time

  • You’re having a hard time losing weight and feel like you’re might be wondering: Is my body resistant to losing weight? 

  • You often experience brain fog

  • You lean on caffeine and sugar for energy more than you should

  • You tend to feel hangry or shaky if you don’t eat every few hours

  • You have difficulty skipping a meal

  • When you eat sugar, you don’t feel satisfied and instead crave more sugar

  • A life without sugar or bread feels scary and depressing

Life-changing experience 100%! I embarked on this reboot looking for a way to lose weight and get my body back into a healthy routine. Wow, did I do that and so much more! The support from the group, the information delivered, and the knowledge shared with us from Melissa has taught me so much! While I was nervous to embark on this journey the supplies given to me and the tools we had made it successful. I lost more weight than I anticipated but better than that I lost my brain fog, my inflammation, and feel great overall. I lost 20lbs and am continuing to use the knowledge I learned in my daily life to continue my path to improve my health. I thought this was going to be extremely difficult but it is 100% doable for anyone! I am looking forward to doing it again and highly recommend Melissa!  K. Hughes

Get unstuck with Melissa McLane - Life Wellness Lab. I have known Melissa for years and always enjoy her energy. I consider myself one part entrepreneur and one part test subject. When she mentioned a new program, I was amped to try it. I had been struggling with inflammation and my weight was stuck. I didn’t consider myself overweight but I was starting to see the "dad" body in the mirror.  The program she put together was detailed and easy to understand/follow. 

During the first week, she eased me into my metabolic reset, which was great considering, I run my own business and have a family that has to deal with my moods. My results were a drop of 6 pounds, more energy, and the best part is less aches and pains in my joints. Melissa will work with you and your goals, and with love and grace help you to exceed those aspirations.  Rick Graves.

Over the last two years, I have participated in the 21-day reboot five times. I was interested in losing weight.   I was familiar with Functional medicine and how eating affects your body.   I liked the fact that the program was only 21 days.     I love the combination of the Fasting mimicking diet together with tracking.   Participation in the program has led me to both lose weight and improve my gut health and energy.    The guides for the program are thorough and helpful, providing important information about foods and approaches.   Melissa is knowledgeable, and always available to answer questions.  My name is Telle Whitney.  I am former CEO, Anita Borg Institute. a Computer Scientist, entrepreneur, and expert on women and technology. 

I needed to lose the COVID weight, and I had a hunch that since the program was implementing varying methods of eating and fasting, that I would gain some results. What was most appealing was the daily data collection.  I learned that my body responds well to longer fasts and that my metabolism is a little more flexible than I thought given the right circumstances.  For me, it was really learning what my body responded to and collecting data over 21 days was invaluable! I could see what was happening in my body. This was honestly the easiest program I’ve done with the fastest results.

"I feel like I am much more in tune with my body after going through Melissa's 21-Day Reboot program. By tweaking just a few things and customizing Melissa's program to fit into something that works for me, I can now easily incorporate everything that I have learned into my lifestyle. I am getting back to my healthy weight, I have more energy, less mood swings, and I just feel better, lighter, and happier overall. Melissa teaches us that it’s important to treat our body with respect and trust that our body is only trying to protect us. So why not try to break those few bad habits and pick up some new healthier ones instead? Your body will thank you for it. I highly recommend this program.”

I signed up because I wanted to lose weight and keto in 2018 worked well but then stopped working and I had a rough transition out of it. I was pregnant, then had a miscarriage, a lot of grieving + antibiotics from the procedure kicked off dysbiosis and a year later I was 20 lbs. heavier, had heavy metals toxicity, and was miserable. The detox program helped but not with weight loss. I didn't expect much going into the program but was surprised by the high touch, getting all my questions answered, and learning from others in the group. I wasn't able to stick to everything but the effort paid off and I lost 7.5 lbs. I loved learning the different types of fasting and checking my blood sugar and ketones. Melissa and Courtney are incredibly dedicated coaches and bring much expertise and a lot of passion to this journey. I'd recommend this program in a heartbeat!

I have to say this has been my favorite program so far!! I loved being able to collect a lot of data throughout the 21 days and I also lost 7 pounds! I also feel calmer overall. I plan to do this again in August.

The results have been amazing.  I feel wonderful and my total weight loss as of this morning is 24.6lbs.  Edwin

I loved this program and lost 16lbs in 21 days and plan on signing up again in August

OMG, I'm doing so great. This system, the 21-day metabolic reboot is WORKING and I'm feeling fantastic. I had been feeling bad for so long. I feel like I went through a "Dark Night of the Soul". I'm seeing progress and feeling better and better in my body... woooo hooooo.  I have put my trust in Melissa and her instruction has been WAY better than any other advice I've received including from Physicians. C. Youngman

This program was so effective, and I learned so much. I am really excited to do this a second round and I now understand why many do it multiple times. It felt GREAT and it was so motivating to drop weight I'd been carrying for a long time and feel good while doing it. You were a great teacher! C. Essabba

Loved this program and will refer my family and friends.

EXCELLENT and super helpful suggestions. Wonderful program!

Are you ready to feel your best?

Hi, I’m Melissa. 

I understand what it’s like to feel frustrated with the way you look and feel -- I’ve been there! 

In fact, when I was pregnant with my first child I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. It was a low point in my life, yet I was determined to overcome my health challenges and live life to its fullest. After learning about functional medicine, I was able to heal my cancer, lose weight, and ultimately feel better. I learned so much about my body and how to take good care of myself and my health in the process!

Today, I am on a mission to help others live healthier lives. Our health is the foundation for our lives. If we have a good health foundation we can thrive in our life. I want you to thrive!

Since beginning the Life Wellness Lab, I have guided hundreds of clients through my program with life-changing results. I have well over 15 years of experience working in the healthcare field and specialize in metabolic health, hormone, and blood sugar dysregulation related to weight issues, energy, and mood.

Ready to lose weight, feel your best, and take control of your health? 

Let’s work together!  In my customized group programs, the women I work with can lose between 10-25lbs in 21 days. AND, all women leave my programs feeling more energetic, more confident, and have the tools to maintain this healthy lifestyle in their day-to-day lives.


Metabolic inflexibility is both the underlying driver of health issues.  Reestablishing metabolic flexibility will stop the vicious cycle. With the metabolic reboot plan, a new cycle will start that will allow your body to heal to feel good and thrive.
