Hi, Sassy here, Chief Cook and Bottle Washer around these parts. I'm a long-time vegan chef, author, Nutritional Consultant, and publisher of Thanks for visiting.    :)

It happened quite accidentally, stumbling upon the vegan diet to lose weight. I heard it was probably a good thing to do for my health, so hubby and I went for it. I was surprised when I lost the stubborn 10-15 pounds I had been holding onto for years. And I have maintained a normal weight ever since.

But over the years I have learned there is a right way and a wrong way to lose weight with the vegan diet. I mean, you can go vegan with chips and salsa! But that is obviously not the route you want to go -- well, unless you're on vacation in Mexico in which case it's required...with an icy cold strawberry margarita. (I'M KIDDING!! Sort of.) teehee

Where was I? Oh, yes (!)...    :)

As a Vegan Diet and Nutrition Coach, the MAIN reason people have hired me over the years is to help them lose weight. So one day back in 2009 I decided to put my knowledge into a vegan weight loss course to make it more affordable and accessible for all.

Get Down With Sass! is the culmination of that knowledge.

Sassy the Vegan Coach

Welcome to Get Down With Sass, a 100% plant-based online weight loss course!

Get Down is a step-by-step plan that's easy to understand and easy to implement. This course will guide you toward a healthy vegan lifestyle—while teaching you the most important steps to nutrition-based and lasting weight loss.

Anya"I've been vegan for a few months and had the stereotypical notion that you could eat nothing but veggies to lose weight! After taking this course, I have a better idea of what a well balanced vegan diet looks like and I am more confident that I'm meeting my protein needs. My favorite part of the course was learning about how to work healthy grains into the picture. I love them and it's nice to know that I don't have to give them up.

"Get Down With Sass! is simple and realistic. The goals are attainable and the timing of each lesson helps you slow down and take one step at a time. The strategies I've learned will become habits that I will continue to practice for the long haul."

Aren't You Tired Of Dieting?

Let's start with the plain and simple facts: "Dieting" is completely pointless.

Any weight-loss programs that you run across that require you to make a temporary change to your routine until you lose the weight are 100% bull; they are simply not sustainable.

When you go off the diet, the weight comes right back.

But you probably already know this.

Because I'd be willing to bet you have experienced this time and time again. You're all gung-ho to start a new weight loss program thinking THIS will be the answer! You'll finally lose the weight. And you embrace the program and go gangbusters with it for a week or a month, or 6 months if you are REALLY committed.

A yo yo

But then for whatever you're thrown off track or lose steam. You figure now that you've fallen "off the wagon" you might as well stay off for a bit—maybe you'll hop back on the next day or the next week.

But time passes, you get busy, or lazy, or depressed because you're starting to gain some weight back. And then all hell breaks loose and you throw in the towel.

So then you start all over.

Or you come across a brand new diet that promises to take the weight off. And when that diet works, you're happy again. For a while. That is, until you go off the diet and put the weight back on again.

Sound familiar? There's an officially unofficial name for this process: It's known as yo-yo dieting. And just about everyone goes through this—sometimes for years upon years.

It's not your fault if you have been handed this hype and fallen for it hook, line, and sinker!

My darling, you don't need another diet, you need a lifestyle change.

You need to learn some simple changes to your everyday routine that will help you to lose the weight. A new way of looking at the food on your plate and its effect on your body.

....but I haven't. ;-)

5 months after joining - following Sassy's advice but FALLING OFF THE WAGON SEVERAL TIMES and TAKING WRONG TURNS AND RE-GAINING POUNDS before going back on track -

I have lost 26 POUNDS!! Yippeeee!!

This weight has gone off for good as most of the good habits have now been ingrained into my everyday life. And I never have to battle hunger pangs - that's important!":D


"Another goodbye ceremony for a set of trousers..."


"And it made me think: what a waste! The trousers are not quite good enough for the charity shop but it's sad to throw them away. (goes against my thrifty grain :D). So I'm getting back into quilting to make warm blankets out of my old trousers."

"I'm turning from 'blobby' to 'curvy', and it makes me very happy!"

"I just wanted to say thank you for starting this weight loss course. I so appreciate having found you because I truly have been feeling overwhelmed in this journey.

Photo of Pam Before Weight Loss"I love the fact that you dole out changes a little at a time. No other weight loss program I've tried has ever done that. And since I'm also trying to change to a vegan lifestyle, this method is proving to be doubly beneficial for me. Thank you so much!"

Photo of Pam After Weight Loss"I was looking through my profile and realized that I began Sassy's program just over a year ago. Since then I have lost 40 pounds! I learned so much from Sassy's program that I am still living it every day.

"A few months ago, my boyfriend took me on vacation, which culminated in an overnight stay in San Francisco. On Saturday night he wanted to treat me to a special night out. When I finished getting ready for the evening and emerged from the bathroom, my boyfriend turned to me and said, "You're a very pretty woman, but tonight you are absolutely gorgeous!" That's when I knew I had succeeded in transforming not only my body, but my lifestyle. And I have Sassy to thank for that :)"

Photo of Scott and Allison"By the end of the course, I lost 12 pounds and my husband lost 10 pounds. I have lost all desire to eat animal flesh. I have zero desire to consume dairy. If I struggle at all it will be in the sweet department, but I feel so empowered from this course and I've learned about other sweetener options that I should not have any issues.

"Thank you Sassy for sharing your expertise and your obvious love of your vegan lifestyle with others. I would not be where I am today, a committed vegan on an exciting journey, if not for you and your husband."

"Wow Sassy, where do I begin? I have so much to share and I will TRY to keep it short!! But first I have to say thank you, because of what you do my life changed and because my life changed there has been a ripple effect and other lives are being changed! Thank you!!

"I have stayed the course of a vegan lifestyle. I do tons of juicing and raw food as well. My health is excellent, my clothing size has stayed at a steady size 6 and my energy level is wonderful. (My husband went back to the Standard American Diet shortly after we completed GDWS.)

"Yet, I didn't believe that my lifestyle would go unnoticed and I fully and faithfully believed that if I set the example regardless of what everyone else decided to do with their life and diet that it would pay off. And I believe that it has.

"So 4-5 weeks ago I informed my family that I was going to begin my second round of GDWS. To my amazement and delight my daughter asked if I would consider helping her with a week long juice fast, to which she would follow with joining me and really digging into a vegan diet. It has been 4 - 5 weeks and she is a changed young woman. She now reads everything she can get her hands on in regards to whole foods, juicing, seeds, nuts grains and non-processed foods. We spend hours in the kitchen and she has learned that she loves foods that she once thought she hates...such as lentils, with onions and carrots with organic seasoning cooked in a pressure cooker.

"My younger sister witnessed my daughter committing to a healthy lifestyle and the benefits of clear skin, weight loss, improved attitude, more energy that she asked if she could come over and spend her week long vacation locked in my house juicing and learning about healthy eating and a vegan lifestyle. In 9 days she lost 15 lbs and gained a new thought process!

"I know I am long winded...Sorry! Like I said I had so much to say!!!!!

"Thank you so much!"

"This course was exactly what I needed. Support, education, creativity, and inspiration were to be found. I eat completely differently now. No cravings for snacks or unhealthy foods. I get completely satiated on the water and delicious whole foods.

And I've really had fun in the kitchen, which is also a big change for me. This has been great!"

If you're reading this...

... it's likely because you have some weight to lose. And you have likely tried some tricks to lose the weight that you just KNEW would work.

Perhaps the tricks worked for you. For a while. But eventually the weight comes back.

I understand because that was me before I went vegan in 1994. I had a HORRIBLE diet plus no clue how to begin an exercise program. It's such a hopeless place to come from, where you really have no idea what to do to lose the pounds. It makes you feel sort of helpless, doesn't it?

And with each and every weight loss attempt that just leads to a dead end road you get more and more discouraged until eventually you feel like screaming...


My students love my vegan weight loss course Get Down With Sass! because it's easy to follow, fun, and most of all EFFECTIVE with...

Big red checkmark
No calorie counting! Oy!
Big red checkmark
No portioning or weighing your food;
Big red checkmark
And no senseless weigh-ins (a MOST inaccurate judge of your weight-loss efforts).

What follows is a description of what you'll find contained in the course, along with testimonials from some of my students. If you have any questions, please let me know via my Contact form or through the Facebook comments below. Thanks!    :)

How The Get Down With Sass! Vegan Weight Loss Course Works

Get Down With Sass! is divided into 14 Lessons over 9 weeks.

Each week, a lesson arrives on your virtual doorstep. Learning in this manner ensures that you are never overwhelmed with too much information to absorb. As you make your way through the course, you'll continue eating the way you normally do, until you come across a goal of adding (or removing) other foods.

Students say this weekly "drip" of information was THE KEY to them learning and implementing each week's lesson.

And that's how you will learn.

Step by step, goal by goal. So it's never overwhelming.

Week after week, lesson after lesson, you discover information you can apply every time you step into your kitchen, grocery store, even your favorite restaurant.

And since you are learning one little bite at a time, you retain what you learn.

By the end of Get Down With Sass!, you can release the animal products (if you choose to do so), as you reach your goal of eating in a way that not only promotes sensible weight loss but your nutritional needs as well.

And did I mention the homework is edible? SCORE!

Aubrey"I've told you before, but Sassy, you CHANGED MY LIFE. You saved my life girl, no lie. I had to step on the scale, just to see. Since starting this course, I'm down 27 lbs. I'm so happy, but as cool as that is, I am more happy that I feel so GOOD! Energy, treating my body right, feeling more vibrant...I just can't believe it. I know now that I am NEVER going back to where I was. Not ever."

Libby"I highly recommend this course to anyone that needs a little boost in the health department. My husband and I think we know it all when it comes to health and eating, but we learned a lot (I say "we" because I shared everything with him)! I don't think you can expect to completely change in 9 weeks, but you will definitely get on the right track and keep heading towards a supremely healthy diet. I plan to use everything I've learned every day of the rest of my life!"

Let's take a quick peek at what you'll find inside Get Down With Sass!:

  • Lesson 1: We examine how and why Get Down With Sass! works, reality checks, setting goals, downloadable tools such as your Food and Exercise Journal and How The Body Works and the Weight Loss Connection. This Lesson gives you homework to do straight out of the gate that will get you started on your journey in a fun and exciting way.

  • Lessons 2 and 3: You'll discover an everyday food item that you must remove from your diet this week, and more importantly WHY. You'll learn the right way to track your weight loss as you make your way through the course. You'll also view a Sample Menu, so you can begin with the end in mind. Then we'll move on to breakfast options that will get your day off to the best start possible and set you up for a health-promoting day ahead.

  • Lessons 4 and 5: This week you'll learn about an important nutrient every vegan must included in their daily diet. And you'll add an important food group that provides you with nutrients that helps your body to build the amino acids necessary to make protein.

  • Lesson 6, 7 and 8: Next, you'll learn how to stay motivated and on track to reach your new goals. Then, we'll take a deep dive into the darlings of the plant-based world fruits and veggies. Plus, you'll learn how to easily add an important whole food into your diet that improves your metabolism and energy AND helps to metabolize excess fat (many vegans are missing this essential ingredient from their diet!). And we'll keep things moving along at a steady pace as we continue to build a well-balanced diet together.

  • Lesson 9: This week we're talking protein. We leave no stone unturned as you learn how to figure out your very own protein requirements, the foods which contain the protein you need, working with beans and legumes and the proper way to prepare them to derive the most nutritional benefit, tempeh, tofu, and more! By the end of this Lesson you will have a very good handle on protein in the vegan diet.

  • Lesson 10: This week we take a deep dive into plant-based calcium. If it's your goal to go vegan, then how can you ensure you're getting enough calcium? That's what we'll focus on. You'll learn how to figure out your calcium requirements and those foods which contain it, which nutrient helps calcium do its job, and the connection between calcium and weight loss. Oh, and we'll also talk about CHEESE!    ;)

  • Lesson 11: Our focus this week examines the carbohydrate myth of so many diets that only end up starving your body of essential fuel and nutrition. You'll learn how to choose only those whole grains and pseudocereals that support your good health. We'll chat about gluten and whole grains and how to know which to add to your diet for maximum weight loss (you might be surprised!). Plus, an extremely simple test you can do to figure out if the bread you're eating is off limits or not (this one might provide the biggest shock of all because some bread is okay to eat and some isn't—yes, even if weight loss is your goal!).

  • Lesson 12: Our focus this week is fats; the good, the bad, and the ugly. We go in-depth into fats including showing you how to figure out the amount of fat intake that is right for your unique self. Plus, a primer on various oils, how to go oil-free if you'd like, all about nuts and seeds and saturated, monosaturated, and polyunsaturated fats. Plus, discover a KEY nutrient that most vegans are not only missing but might not even know about!

  • Lesson 13: This week we head straight into your downloadable Get Down With Sass! Vegan Menu Planning Workbook that focuses on teaching you how to create a week's worth of menus that ties together everything that you've learned throughout the course. You'll also learn the ins and outs of running a vegan kitchen, sample grocery shopping lists, and so much more!

    In addition, you'll receive Get Down! Recipes, a 46-page downloadable eBook that includes all the recipes from the course.

  • Lesson 14: To round out the course we'll take a fun ride through exercise so you can make your workouts more effective. You'll work out smarter, not harder.

Photo of Sue "I liked the gradual unfolding of the 9-week journey. The time also allowed me to think about why I wanted to walk this path. I have discovered that this is no longer about weight loss for me. Get Down With Sass! has stopped me thinking in terms of my 'weight' and I now think about my 'health'.

Oh, and by the end of the course I had lost weight - somewhere between 5 and 6 kilos (11 to 13 pounds). And, of course my clothes are feeling much more comfy."

Why You'll Feel Empowered After You Take This Course

Research the topic of weight loss across the internet, in books, videos, and TV, and you will find a LOT of conflicting information. And when you try to get to the bottom of things, it is overload. There is so much information to wade through, how could you possibly know what is or is not accurate?

But more importantly, there aren't always REASONS given for the actions you are supposed to take. Plus...


In order for a program to work for the LONG HAUL it must be nutritionally sound.

So many programs out there today are simply in it for a quick buck with no regard to your long-term health effects.

You're in good hands as a student of Get Down With Sass! because I am more than a weight loss coach—YOUR good health is my number one concern.

The entire course is backed by sound nutritional principles. And I've worked hard to ensure that each week's lesson brings easy-to-attain goals for you to accomplish with a full explanation of WHY to do it as well. Because if you know "why" you must take a particular step, it is much easier to stick with the "how".

Each week builds upon the previous week's lesson. Little by little you learn the tips, techniques, and skills you need to be successful at weight loss once and for all!

When you experience success each week, you gain the confidence you need to continue. And this in turn helps you to want to continue on your path so you can lose the weight you need to lose.

This is a natural weight loss program, and one that you can use for the rest of your life.

Isn't that refreshing?

"Can you provide a Sample Vegan Lunch/Dinner?"

I get this question a lot, so here is my response:

Yes, with one caveat...   ;)

While you are given a sample menu as a guide and an illustration of the goals you'll be working toward, the point of the course is NOT to give you menus or recipes but to give you the education you need to create your own menus and recipes that focus on your nutrient needs.

So, with that said, here is an example of one of the dinners recommended in the course:


  • Greens & Beans (Use collards instead of Swiss chard)
  • Edamame Fried Rice

Now, why are these foods chosen as a meal on this particular menu?

That's exactly what you'll learn!

You'll get to know without any doubt WHY the ingredients that make up these dishes were selected. Once you know the nitty gritty details you can move on to create your own meals and menus to ensure your personal nutrition needs are met.

For example, while the recipe provided by way of example for Greens & Beans uses Swiss chard (which is incredibly yummy!), we instead switch over to kale to *up* our calcium intake for the day (since, as you'll learn, Swiss chard is not a reliable calcium source). Or you can use collard greens, mustard greens, broccoli, etc., which is another thing you'll gain thorough knowledge about: Your best vegan sources of calcium. All of which you'll learn to use to create an equally delicious dish.

The Edamame Rice recipe includes tender edamames, an excellent vegan protein source, as well as water-rich vegetables and brown rice that help us to meet even more important nutrients for the day (such as B vitamins).

An example of daily goals for protein, calcium and healthy fatsAnd the best part? You'll gain a complete understanding of just how these foods contribute to our daily goals of protein, calcium and healthy fats, not to mention all the rest of the important nutrients you'll discover!

I hope this serves to give you a peek into what you'll find when you take this nutrition-based and plant-based weight loss course.

The most important thing to take away is that you learn to create weight-loss supportive menus yourself with the information you learn. This way you become self-sufficient instead of having to rely on me (or anyone else, for that matter) to provide you with the menus you need to be healthy.

Kristin Dabar"I started the Get Down With Sass! course last January and am so happy to have discovered this new way of thinking about food and nutrition! I feel great and have lost (and maintained) a 5 pound weight loss. I would like to lose about 5 more pounds, and I feel confident that I can do it with a little fine tuning. I plan to go back and take the course again because there is just so much information to absorb! Now that I have the basics under control, I think I can do a better job of focusing on the details.

Here's more great news -- I went for my annual physical a few weeks ago and was so pleased to find out that my total cholesterol has dropped by about 20 points! Last year it was a bit over 200, now I am at 179. Triglycerides are 110 and HDL is 63. Fantastic!"

Beasties Analysis

Have you been...

  • Craving sugar?
  • Experiencing pains in the bleeeeeep like fatigue, headaches or muscle aches, congestion, or bloating/gas (to name just a few)?
  • Feeling "sick all over" yet, in spite of visits to many different physicians, the causes haven't been found?
  • Dealing with an unexplained, itchy rash?
  • Finding it difficult to lose weight no matter what you try, no matter what "diets" you go on, and no matter how much exercise you do or how little you eat? Seriously.

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you might have a challenge with a yeast overgrowth, or as I refer to them: Beasties.

Let's talk about this for a minute.

Yeast are microorganisms that are a normal part of your gut flora and live in the human mouth and gastrointestinal tract. They're supposed to be there, my friend!

But sometimes, due to lifestyle factors, they begin to multiply and take over. And if you have an overgrowth of yeast in your body then you will find it difficult—if not impossible—to lose weight until they're brought back to normal levels.

That's because while the yeast is constantly and consistently multiplying in numbers, they're also dying off which means they're releasing toxins that are eventually stored in your fat cells. If you're having a difficult time losing weight in your belly, hips or thighs then this could be a contributing reason.

I, personally, suffered from an overgrowth of the Beasties a few years ago so I know a thing or two about the topic. And let me tell you that a yeast challenge is tricky. That's because yeast are incredibly smart. What works once to kill the majority off and bring their numbers down they'll actually begin to use as fuel! So it becomes a matter of staying ahead of their little game.

If you think this is an area you need help in then choose the Private Coaching package below, and I'll send you a Questionnaire to fill out. Then, we'll have a 45-minute call to talk about your results as well as my personal recommendations for the tweaks you can easily make to Get Down With Sass! so we can do everything we can to bring your yeast back to normal levels.

Again, this is an optional service and is included with the "Private Coaching" package below.

Questions about Get Down With Sass!

Q: How much time will I be required to spend on this course each week?
A: Each week you will receive a link to visit a new lesson or two in our online classroom. Each lesson will take you right around 20-30 minutes to read. You will also have to make time in your schedule each week to do the necessary homework (which is mostly learning how to shop for and cook the foods that will support you). In addition, you will want to spend at least 15 minutes per day filling out your downloadable daily food and exercise journal.

Q: I would like to try your diet plan but I have food allergies that often get in the way of standard type diets. Is your program flexible to accommodate my allergies?
A: Yes. The course is designed to put YOU in the driver's seat. As you go along, you will learn how to add (and remove) foods and food groups from your diet that will allow your body to move toward natural weight loss.

So rather than me handing you recipes that you must make to stay on the program, instead you choose what to eat and cook based on my recommendations. There is never any reason to eat any foods you are allergic to. xo

Q: What is the maintenance program like?
A: There really is no 'maintenance program'. This is not like other weight loss programs, where you have to do one thing to lose the weight and then another to keep it off. That makes no sense to me.

With my course, you learn as you go, each week building upon the week before. By the end of the course, you have all the information you need to continue to lose weight and, most importantly, keep it off.

Q: Can we eat meat occasionally? How strict is this program?
A: This course was designed to allow YOU complete control over the food you eat. You are given the information to use as you see fit. So CAN you still eat meat? Yes, if you desire. But will you NEED to eat meat? No, because you will learn the basics of building a healthy vegan diet so you can feel comfy letting go of the meat when you are ready.

Q: How much do you promote the use of "fake" meat? Do the recipes you share have wacky, hard to find ingredients that are not found in my local Albertson's? Thanks.
A: The recommended ingredients throughout the course are mostly basic, including veggies and fruit and beans and grains, etc. All foods which I believe you should have no challenges finding in your local grocery store.

The use of organic soy products (such as tofu and tempeh) are completely up to you, and are not necessary to create your very own menus (which are based on your personal likes and dislikes). In addition, I don't recommend a diet focused on faux meats and cheeses and such, and it is not what I teach in the course either.

Beyond that, if there are any "specialty" ingredients discussed, they are explained so you know if you would like to use them, and where to find them.

Please note, most grocery stores will special-order ingredients for you. In fact, the more people ask for ingredients they don't normally carry, the more likely they are to consider carrying it in the future. ;)

Q: Can your vegan weight loss course be done in a house with people cooking meat?
A: If you are asking whether or not it would be EASY to take this course while others in the household eat meat? That completely depends on whether or not you plan on saying goodbye to meat while you actually take the course. And whether or not that would be an easy thing for you to do while surrounded by others who are eating meat. The course does not require you to go vegan. It simply asks you to add or remove certain foods from your diet as you go along. Whether you choose to take each step is completely up to you. Those who follow my advice to a "T" seem to have the most success losing the weight.

By the way, it might surprise you to know that very little talk of "giving up meat" is made during the course at all. That's because when I created this weight loss course, it was important to me that everyone should be able to successfully complete the course no matter what their diet looks like when they begin. The course is a tool to use to help you understand what a proper weight-loss promoting healthy vegan diet looks like. Then the ball is in your court as to whether or not you will go all the way with it, or simply take some of the advice and make it work for you and your life.

Q: Is this course adaptable to vegetarian (with eggs/dairy)?
A: All of our courses are perfect for any level of vegan, vegetarian, or non-vegan. We simply teach you the vegan end of things and you can take it as far as you want to.

For instance, when you have completed this course (Get Down With Sass!) you have learned how to eat a well-balanced weight-loss promoting vegan diet so you're covered if you want to release the animal products, but you certainly don't have to. It's not a requirement.

As a point of fact, you don't have to be vegan to hang with us at all. No judgments or guilt trips here. We'll offer support to you wherever you're at on the vegan to non-vegan scale. We're cool like that.    :)

"I've been a vegetarian for 16 years and always struggled with my weight, depression, and fatigue. I was a junk food vegetarian and also ate a lot of processed vegetarian products. After following the course and taking the vitamins you recommended, I feel so much healthier. I have so much energy, never binge eat like I used to, a chronically stubborn patch of pimples has cleared.

"I weigh 5 lb. less and my clothes aren't tight any longer! Although I came here to lose weight, I feel like the weight loss is just a side benefit of the diet. I love your site, your recipes are delicious, and I love the way your present your material--simple and nonjudgmental. It actually feels like you are reading something from a friend!"

"I just want to say "Thank You!" I've wanted a more veggie-based program in my life, and so many books and internet searches get confusing. I've been subscribed to your blog for a couple of years and found the information wonderful! I'm so glad I purchased the "GDWS". I have dropped a couple of pounds, but it's how much better I feel overall. I have more energy to WANT to get out and do things! I know my success will be long term, and not a "quick fix". Thanks again!"
-- Kathleen Mitchell, Gainesville, Texas

"The awesome result of the journey becoming vegan with the vegancoach is: I don't CARE at all how I look for the first time since adolescence - I just feel so great, energised, happy and free with the plant based diet together with the devotion to a daily yoga practice that I love everything and anything, including my body as it is - dearly :)))"
