The diet industry is broken. Lift is going to fix this.
Everything people think they know about diet is contradicted somewhere else. What diets work? What does it even mean for a diet to work? Weight loss? Long term health? Enjoyment?
We’re working with researchers at UC Berkeley to answer every question possible in the name of science. More importantly, this is in the name of helping you be the healthy, high energy genius you were meant to be.

We’re bringing in our behavior design expertise, dozens of subject matter experts and over $100k in giveaways.
Starting January 1st, we will make ten different 4-week diet plans available on Lift. The diets will cover all popular diet advice and then we’ll measure the results, along with our academic partners, in order to look at weight loss, difficultly, enjoyability, and effects on happiness and energy.
Here’s an example Diet Plan, written for the Paleo Diet. And here’s the full list:

Do you have a skill or expertise that you’d like to share with the Lift community?
Starting today, you can create a Plan on Lift to help others achieve goals that you’ve already mastered. Plans are guides that tell you the daily steps to take to reach a goal. Writing one takes about as long as writing a good blog post. Let me walk you through it.
In Lift, a coaching plans give you daily instructions to help you
reach your goals. Followers of a plan will see the first instruction on Day 1 and unlock the next instruction each time that they check-in.
Here are some examples:

What are you great at? What change have you made that you’re proud of? What skill do you have that you could teach someone else?
You can share your plan with your friends whenever you want. But we’re also looking to feature high quality plans with the entire Lift community.
After you create your first draft, you may hear from us with suggestions.
This is what we’re looking for:
Would you ever play a drinking game with water to stay hydrated? Some people do. That’s right, someone came up with a water-based version of beer pong to make it easier to drink enough water.
Drinking enough water sounds so easy yet it’s the second most common habit on Lift. How could something so simple be so hard?
We looked into the behavior design around drinking water to find out why and what we could do to make doing this habit easier.
Inbox Zero sounds like a myth when you first hear about it and a farce when you first attempt it.
I finally got to Inbox Zero earlier this year thanks to tips from experts and friends on Lift. I just added the habit back again after falling off the wagon in June and revisited the tips that helped me clear my email inbox the first time.

I reconnected with college friends this weekend. One is a doctor in his first year of residency. Another is working at a big law firm. I’m working at a startup in San Francisco.
Our lives are so different nowadays but we found a surprising habit in common:
We all meditate.
Each of us has different reasons for meditating. We practice different styles, use different tools, and meditate at different times of the day.
“I am stuck. I retired 2 months ago. I finally have all the time in the world to do whatever I want…yet, I am hiding in the house worrying about recent weight gained and accomplishing nothing!” ~ Janie
Ever feel stuck?
People sign up to Lift for a lot of reasons and one of them is because they feel stuck. Like Janie, they’re frustrated with something in their lives but don’t know how or what to change.
It’s okay to feel stuck. We all do at different points in our lives. But how do you get unstuck?
