    Danette May’s Program Review

    She offers a series of E-books

    Danette May Program Review© by https://www.mindlove.com/podcast/rise-rock-bottom/

    Review overview

    Summary

    The two programs you can choose include the six-week coaching programs and the New You 30-day Challenge. As you can already notice, all of these programs are directed at women only.

    Pros

    • Easily Accesable
    • Lots of free information
    • Easy excercises
    • 60-Day Money Back Guarantee
    • A Variety Of Programs To Choose From

    Cons

    • Expensive
    • Can be overwhelming with so many followers
    • Requires a lot of time and dedication
    • No Authentic Reviews

    None other than Danette herself created the Danette May Diet Program. She offers a series of E-books as well as diet programs to help a person achieve their health and fitness goals. She has been in the health, fitness, and nutrition space for about 15 years, which makes her look credible when writing different fitness and weight loss books, but do her products deliver? When looking at the website it is rather long and drawn out regarding which products to purchase, and they are not very detailed about what you will be getting UNTIL you click “Buy Now.” Once you click that button you will be scrolling down a very long page of jabber. The three e-books you can choose from are: 3 day Bikini Body Detox, 7-Day Jumpstart, and Bikini Body Recipes with over 150 recipes to choose from. The two programs you can choose include the six-week coaching programs and the New You 30-day Challenge. As you can already notice, all of these programs are directed at women only.  

    The Facts: 

    All of the products that Danette May sells are in the form of an e-book or e-program, and it will feel very “scammy” when purchasing. All of these offers are flying in your face, with red count down clocks letting you know that 75% off is only available for 6 more minutes. Don’t be worried about it though, as they offer a 60 day money-back guarantee on the products through a company called Click Bank.  

    The e-Books can cost up to $27.99, while the diet programs can cost anywhere from $150-$250 for a one time purchase. The 30-Day Challenge is only available at certain times, and they will capture your email address if you want to be placed on a waiting list. Very clever indeed. These are one time purchases on your credit card, and there is no auto shipments occurring as the products are mostly online.  

    What’s The Word?  

    When looking for any detailed review of the different programs offered by Danette May, you will only find people who are promoting the products as affiliates on many different online pages. She does a good job of making sure no negative words get out about her e-books, and programs because there are no authentic reviews to consider. This tells me that not many people are actually doing her programs, and the people who are positively reviewing her products and then providing links to purchase are getting a serious kick back. Where is the authenticity here? On the bright side, I did find some reviews on her cookbook offered which was a relief!  

     TY said,

    I wish there was a different cover picture, but otherwise this book and her online help and suggestions led to my brother's 20# weight loss, and his wife, my 13# loss and we ALL feel really good!

    Another  Amazon Customer said:

    I was looking forward to receiving this book. I was extremely disappointed in the quality of the recipes in this book! We eat with far more veggies and healthy foods – not dips, wings, and pizzas! Far too many low cal dessert recipes rather than main meal options.

    What Do The Danette May Diet Programs Offer?   

    If you are looking into buying the 3-Day Bikini Body Detox, you will be given a three-day menu plan as well as a detailed shopping list. On top of that you will be getting a 15-minute activity plan to follow. The cost is around $7.99 regularly for this program, but prices are always subject to change with e-programs.  

    The 7-Day Jumpstart is really just an add on to the 3-Day Bikini Detox and it provides meal plans with recipes to follow. The focus of the jumpstart is to focus on preparing foods that have anti-inflammatory properties. The cost for this will be anywhere from $15.00-$20.00. Both of the programs are available at all times unlike the 30-day Challenge and the 6 Week Coaching program.  

     The cookbook has quick and easy recipes for a pretty simple price, but not everyone liked how the book was constructed. Some of the reviews complained about the recipes as well, and then on the flip side people lost weight with it too. Overall, the cookbook was mediocre in the eyes of the customer. Overall, Danette May offers different meal plans, recipes, and activities for you to follow whether you are doing her jump-start program or her 30-day challenge.  

    Pros Cons 
    • 60-Day Money Back Guarantee 
    • A Variety Of Programs To Choose From 
    • A lot of Information To Process 
    • No Authentic Reviews 

    Are Danette May’s Programs Worth A Try? 

    If you are into e-books, and e-programs this might be a good fit for you and your healthy journey. The prices are not terrible, and they do offer a 60-day money back guarantee from Click Bank. If you are looking to contact the company for more questions, click here. There are no wonky side effects that have been reported, or really any customer feedback on most of her programs for that matter. Many people who are talking about this program are affiliates trying to make money, so the authenticity has slipped away in that regard. Overall, this program isn’t terrible but they do not offer a lot of insight as to how people like the programs after purchasing. There is a Facebook page that has customer activity, mainly sharing fitness tips and fun recipes. There is no cost to look at her Facebook page, so take a look and see if it would be a good fit for you before purchasing her different programs.

    Phentermine Overview

    Phentermine is a diet pill known to help with rapid substantial weight loss

    what is phentermine review

    “Phentermine” Claims

    Phentermine (phentermine hydrochloride) is a diet pill and appetite suppressant known to help with rapid substantial weight loss, most commonly associated with amphetamines. A stimulant, it is believed to affect the central nervous system by tapping into appetite control. Phentermine is primarily produced in the United States and one of its prescription trade names is Adipex-P. According to the Phentermine.com website,

    GATE Pharmaceuticals manufacture Adipex. GATE Pharmaceuticals is a division of TEVA Pharmaceuticals USA, a subsidiary of Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, Ltd., Israel's leading pharmaceutical company. [1]

    First introduced in 1959, it was taken off the market in 1997 due to high reports of heart valve damage in people who took it. Today there are many combination drugs created with Phentermine, such as Qsymia and Qnexa (both available by prescription only). [2] The most common over-the-counter names associated with Phentermine are Adipex-P, Duromine, Metermine, and Suprenza.

    NOTE: Phentermine is almost always recommended only to patients who have a BMI over 30 (“Obese” category) and have been unsuccessful with diet and exercise alone. It is a short-term regimen designed to be taken for a few weeks only.

    The Facts

    The Adipex-P brand of phentermine hydrochloride comes in the form of white pills with little blue dots on the outside, making it appear unique to its trade named associates. The cost for around 7 pills will be $15.00 for a generic grade, which is not expensive. A strong pill like Phentermine will not come without side effects, and there are strong warnings against some of the effects you might encounter.

    It is not safe to take if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. It is not advised to drink alcohol when taking Phentermine, as it could aggravate the side effects. The pill also has a history with heart and lung problems that can occur over time when you take it longer than recommended by your doctor.

    Some of the more common side effects that can occur when you take this weight loss drug are blurred vision, insomnia, depression, drowsiness, extreme rage, and increased blood pressure. The instructions for taking the pill are,

    “Phentermine should be taken on an empty stomach, once daily, prior to breakfast. If in tablet form, the tablet may be broken or cut in half. Do NOT break, crush, or chew tablets. As phentermine may disrupt normal sleep patterns, avoid taking a dose late in the day. If taking more than one dose a day, take the last dose approx. 4-6 hours prior to going to bed.” [1]

    Ingredients

    Phentermine hydrochloride tablets contain the following inactive ingredients: crospovidone, dibasic calcium phosphate dihydrate, magnesium stearate, povidone, propylene glycol, FD&C Blue #1 Aluminum Lake, shellac glaze, and titanium dioxide. [3]

    The pills are not meant to be taken longer than 6 weeks; longer duration can cause heart and lung problems.

    What’s The Word?

    The warnings about Adipex and other phentermine-based supplements cannot be stressed enough. It is not meant for dropping 10 pounds in the two weeks before your high school reunion. Most people who take phentermine need to lose a large amount of weight—100-plus pounds—and their diet/exercise routine needs a kick start. That’s it. It isn’t meant to be taken for long periods of time, and can be very damaging to the body if done so. Your doctor should be a full and active partner in your decision to take this type of supplement.

    Patricia from Missouri said,

    My doctor has just started me on this. I have chronic abdominal pain so I'm taking a medication to increase my dopamine levels. Side effect is that it causes you to gain weight and makes you want to eat everything. So my doc put me on Phentermine. I've been on it two days. It helps with eating. Down side is in having trouble sleeping with it. “ [4]

    From other users there was a complete mix of reviews, ranging from ecstatic weight loss to none at all. As with any supplement, results and side effects will vary with body composition and chemistry. So, while people are losing weight with Phentermine, it is not the safest route for weight loss. It is not safe if you have any heart problems, or high blood pressure. It should always be taken under strict medical supervision, but also with your own vigilance of knowing how it’s affecting you.

    What Does Phentermine Offer?

    This is a controlled-substance diet pill which offers little more than what’s in the bottle. There are no meal plans, exercise plans, or support plans. It has a harsh chemical makeup, and not to be used casually. There are few studies done as to why this product is actually good for you, and more often than not you will be reading the warnings before the adulations.

    There are many Phentermine alternatives on the market today, some having “Phen” in the name and others without. It is worth the research to make sure you are not taking this product under a different name.

    According to Drugs.com, over 472 different medications will interact questionably with Phentermine, so it is best to do research on your current medications before taking this one as well. [5]

    ProsCons
    •    Inexpensive

    •    Helps Obese People Lose Substantial Weight.

    •    Questionable side effects

    •    Harsh on the body long-term

    Is Phentermine Worth A Try?

    Depends. Usually phentermine is prescribed only to very obese people who need to get to a medically-viable weight in preparation for surgery. It is not meant to be taken long-term, as it had been proven to have adverse health effects in both the lungs and the heart back when it first came out. The FDA originally approved this supplement, and then pulled it off the market for more research. It still has not been officially re-approved by the FDA, but the good news is there have been no further cases of heart or lung problems in recent years. [6]

    If you are interested in trying out this pill, talk to your health care provider and be aware of the side effects that are proven to come with taking it. Again, be aware that it is not meant for people who are not very obese, and it is not meant to be taken over long periods of time. It is meant to get the ball rolling for substantial, hundred-plus pounds weight loss in people who are at risk of severe health complications or death due to their weight.

    PS1000 Diet Review

    ...company promotes healthy weight loss at a sustainable rate, and they don’t misguide you with faulty promises, which is one thing I like about the business so far...

    PS1000 Diet Review

    To Get a Limited Time Offer

    Click HERE Visit Official PS1000 Site 

    (25% OFF coupon code automatically applied at checkout)

    If you have been thinking about buying PS1000 weight loss supplement and diet plan, stop for a moment and let us help you understand whether or not you should spend your money on it.  

    What we liked about PS1000 

    PS1000 actually promotes healthy lifestyle in regard to both diet and physical activity. On their website, you can find a wide variety of workout plans and recipes. While we can’t precisely say what works and what doesn’t, the more or less serious approach of PS1000 to helping you maintain a healthy lifestyle is evident. This is a thing that a lot of creators of dietary plans do not do, so this is certainly a big advantage of PS1000. 

    Losing excessive weight is highly challenging for some individuals. You may have tried out dozens of different diet plans but have achieved absolutely nothing. That’s when you start to think about spending money on a magical diet plan that, as stated by its creators, will help you lose weight. 

    PS 1000 is one of them. There is a multitude of loud diet plans promising you that you will lose weight without any effort. While some diet plans are easily identifiable scams, others are much more complex and cannot be revealed that quickly. 

    What is PS1000? 

    Essentially, PS1000 is a diet plan, although you get more than just a couple of plans for the money. PS1000 is a step-by-step guide that is aimed to help you with losing weight as quickly as possible. 

    The diet plan of PS1000 consists of three phases: 

    • Phase 1. At this initial phase, you are supposed to start eating healthily, as advised by the diet plan. According to the creators of PS1000, the most weight loss occurs in this phase. Phase 1 can last up to 90 days. 
    • Phase 2. This phase is aimed at helping you create a new weight point that is easily maintained by your body. Phase 2 can last up to 21 days. 
    • Phase 3. In this phase, you start to slowly add sugars and starches back while maintaining healthy lifestyle and continuing to consume as many calories as you need. 

    PS1000 claims that by following the diet plan, you will be able to help your body maintain the necessary level of your body’s hormones. After all, endocrine disorders are often the main reason for obesity! 

    What does PS1000 contain? 

    PS1000 comes with a number of products and services including menus, support, program guides, and money-back guarantees. However, for most interest for us is the Metabolic Burst, which seems to be the main component in the price of PS1000. We also should mention the Energy Burst that comes with the platinum package, however, the creators of PS1000 do not provide any data on its composition on their website. 

    The Metabolic Burst contains: 

    • Amino acids arginine, glutamine, glycine, ornithine, serine, tyrosine, and glutamic acid. These can be found in regular food, especially in meat, not to mention that some of them are produced by the body naturally. 
    • Maca. Maca has been widely marketed for its health benefits, including enhanced sexual performance. As for PS1000, its creators claim that maca helps with reducing stress, increasing energy and stamina, and improving sleep quality.
    • Beta-alanine, which is naturally synthesized by the body. 
    • Rhodiola, another plant that has a number of alleged health benefits. As stated, Rhodiola improves performance, reduces fatigue, and improves mood.
    • African mango seed, which allegedly is beneficial for the production of hormone Leptin, a hormone that helps the body regulate energy balance.
    • Maltodextrin fiber, which absorbs water in the digestive tract, thereby decreasing the absorption of carbohydrates and cholesterol, which in its turn supports the use of glucomannan in weight loss.
    • Potassiumniacin, one of the organic compounds of Vitamin B3 complex, Vitamin EMethyl B12Vitamin B6, and zinc, which all can be found in food.  

    Did you notice that the majority of the ingredients of the Metabolic Burst can be found in regular food? Makes me think this might be one of the key elements in the success of this diet.

    Does PS1000 work? 

    People are different, and so is the condition of their organisms. Some people simply have dietary imbalances while others suffer from serious hormonal disorders. Can a dietary plan help the latter? Most probably, no. Endocrinologists from all over the world put great effort into resolving issues with hormone production, so a mere dietary supplement definitely won’t be a magic pill. 

    On the other hand, the creators of PS1000 do not state that it is. The health disclaimer on their website clearly states that PS1000 isn’t designed to replace medical care. On the contrary, they recommend you to always work with qualified doctors. Besides, they write that PS1000 hasn’t been evaluated by FDA. We sincerely salute their honesty and willingness to help. 

    PS1000 might be able to help those with no serious medical conditions, those who only need to balance their diet to lose weight. As for cases beyond generic, PS1000 will probably be of no use.  

    Does PS1000 Have Scientific Backing?

    On the front page of the website there is a doctor named Dr. Karen F. Vieria who states that the ingredients in the diet drops, and the program as a whole are proven to help someone lose weight. Also, because this company promotes eating wholesome nutritious foods along with their supplements there is a multitude of information behind why healthy eating habits are said to aid in weight loss. Obviously, reducing the amount of calories a person eats has been scientifically proven to help in the weight loss journey, it is just the process that can hang people up. The one thing I am growing fond of when looking into the PS1000 program is the education and phases behind their weight loss philosophy.

    Does PS1000 Have Side Effects?

    As with any diet programs that promote lifestyle changes you will see side effects from dietary restrictions. Some people that have gone through this program have noticed the onset of headaches and fatigue, as sugar and starches are off limits in phase 1. The withdrawal symptoms can be some of the hardest symptoms to fight when going through this program.

    Should you spend your money on PS1000? 

    When looking into outside sources of consumer reviews of PS1000, (because the websites of the actual products always seem one sided) they got good reviews as a whole. I had to double-check this information, because you do not normally find this often with diet companies. On Amazon alone there was an 85% 5 star rating. Merchants like Amazon offer their consumers to leave reviews no matter if they are good or bad. The overall consensus is that the program really promoted weight loss the healthy way, and that they saw long term positive results from PS1000 program.

    While we haven’t looked really deep into PS1000 and merely examined its phases and the Metabolic Burst, we think it is quite enough to give you a final recommendation. So should you buy PS1000 program? 

    We adore the approach of the creators of PS1000. They made sure that their website isn’t merely a showcase of their product but a knowledge base as well. While you may decide not to buy PS1000 weight loss supplement, the data provided by them could certainly be useful. 

    Nonetheless, we advise you to consult with a medical professional first before you decide to follow any diet plan, be it PS1000 or not. After all, your condition may be more serious than you think.  

    To contact the company directly please visit PS1000program.com or call 1 866 599 4240.
