    The Ultimate Candida Diet Review

    ultimate candida diet review

    How The Ultimate Candida Diet Works

    The Ultimate Candida Diet is a health book that helps people rid themselves of candida so that they can feel healthier while also losing weight in some cases. Lisa Richards created the diet after dealing with her own candida issues and listed the methods that helped her out the most.

    The key to the Ultimate Candida Diet is sticking with low-calorie whole foods, which help fight candida, resulting in less fatigue and fewer yeast infections. While weight loss isn't the main goal of this diet, it is an added bonus for many people as the diet naturally lowers the amount of calories they consume each day.

    While there are some things to like about The Ultimate Candida Diet, it simply isn't a book that is going to help people whose number one focus is weight loss. They certainly should get healthier if they follow the meal plan laid out in the book, but weight loss would be slow and short term unless they find another diet to use alongside this one.

    Do Dieters Lose Weight on The Ultimate Candida Diet?

    Since The Ultimate Candida Diet does recommend lower calorie meals, people should see some weight loss in the first couple of weeks. The diet is very restrictive, though, and it wasn't designed to be used for more than a couple of months. In fact, Lisa Richards recommends that people use the book as a cleanse more than as a full-time diet.

    The Ultimate Candida Diet also lacks any type of workout program, so weight loss will be limited unless dieters are already using another exercise regimen. The diet doesn't have a lot of foods with a high amount of protein, so it is pretty obvious that weight loss isn't one of the focal points of The Ultimate Candida Diet.

    Level of Effort

    Any diet that takes away most of what the typical dieter likes to eat will be a tough diet to complete, and The Ultimate Candida Diet is very restrictive. There are a lot of recipes in the book, but most of them contain ingredients that come from specialty stores and take a while to cook. The fact that all of these meals are replacing what people are used to eating means that most dieters simply won't be able to stick with the diet for the full 60 days.

    Conclusion

    For people who have Candida Albicans, The Ultimate Candida Diet is a great $40 investment because it has been proven to help eradicate it. However, anyone who wants to lose weight will need to either use another diet alongside this one, or choose a more complete diet that focuses on both candida and weight loss equally.

    Specific Carbohydrate Diet Review

    The Specific Carbohydrate Diet Review

    How the Specific Carbohydrate Diet Works

    The Specific Carbohydrate Diet is a diet that was created by pediatrician Sidney V. Haas back in the 1920's, and then became popular by Elaine Gottschall, whose child was a patient of Haas. Originally, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet was intended to help people who had Irritable Bowel Syndrome or one of the other common intestinal diseases, but it later became just as well known as a weight loss plan.

    As the name suggests, only some carbohydrates are supposed to be consumed when using the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. The theory behind the diet is that if people remove carbs that don’t actually help their bodies, they will have fewer digestive issues and will become healthier.

    Unfortunately, not only does the Specific Carbohydrate Diet not have any backing from the scientific community, there is also a chance that it is an unhealthy diet because of the nutritional elements that it lacks.

    Do Dieters Lose Weight on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet?

    How much weight someone will lose on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet depends on just how much they eat, but there is a good chance that all dieters will lose at least some weight when they use this plan. The reason being it is a very low calorie diet because the majority of foods that don't have “bad” carbs will have a lower calorie count than the foods that do.

    The problem with the Specific Carbohydrate Diet is that its only proven effectiveness for people looking to lose weight is that it just lowers the amount of calories that dieters eat. That goal can be achieved with a number of other diets, so there really doesn't seem to be anything special about the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, and it also happens to come with some health risks.

    Level of Effort

    Like other diets that have people eat only certain foods, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet can be tough on anyone who is used to eating what they enjoy. It isn't very hard at first because those early motivations can help dieters get over their food cravings, but after a few weeks it can be very hard to stick with this diet plan.

    The Specific Carbohydrate Diet also doesn't have any type of exercise plan to follow, so dieters have to come up with their own to compliment their new low-calorie diets. This only makes the diet harder to stick to, which is why there are far more failures than successes when it comes to the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.

    Conclusion

    The Specific Carbohydrate Diet may have seemed like a good idea back when it was created, but these days there are far better diets out there that are known to actually be healthy diets. On top of being a risky diet to follow, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet book is also currently $60, which is pretty expensive considering that it is an unproven diet with no exercise plan.

    The New Body Type Guide

    It categorizes people into distinct groups based on their metabolic status.

    The New Body Type Guide Review

    The New Body Type GuideThe New Body Type Guide is a comprehensive work by Chiropractor Dr. Eric Berg. It categorizes people into distinct groups based on their metabolic status.  Dr. Berg is quite popular for his earlier diet book called The 7 Principles of Fat Burning that helped innumerable people understand the role of hormones in controlling weight gain. It enabled many of them to self-regulate their hormonal status and food intake to achieve successful weight loss. The New Body Type Guide takes it one step ahead by providing a thorough understanding of one’s body type to make the weight loss efforts even more effective.  [1]

    How the New Body Type Guide Works

    Most of us are familiar with the fruit-shape based body typing which compares the overall shape of the body to fruits such as apple, pear or banana depending on the areas of major fat deposition. While your tendency to accumulate fat in specific areas can give some indication of how your body works, it’s more useful for choosing your wardrobe rather than your diet. The new body types depicted by Dr Eric Berg delve deeper than outward appearances. He describes the typical characteristics of each body type and gives credible explanations of why those types are different.

    Healthcare professionals, nutritionists, and exercise specialists often advise overweight and obese people to lose weight to become healthy. Dr. Berg, on the other hand, insists that one has to first become healthy to lose extra weight. According to him, it’s not overeating or lack of exercise per-se that causes weight gain, but glandular dysfunctions that predispose people to eating disorders and lethargy. Unless those root causes are tackled and set right, no amount of exercise or starving can give lasting results. That’s exactly why people who temporarily lose weight through severely calorie-restricted diets and rigorous exercise regimen often gain back all the lost weight, and some more, within 1-5 years.

    It is common knowledge that some people respond well to certain diets while those same diets have little or no effect on others. The same is true about exercise programs. The New Body Types explains why it is so, and how people belonging to different types can do things differently to achieve desired weight loss. Four main body types are recognized, although some people may be a combination of two or more types.

    The Adrenal Type

    Adrenal glands are a pair of small organs found on top of the kidneys. They secrete the hormone Adrenalin in response to stress. Adrenalin is called the fight-or-flight hormone because it prepares the body to respond to danger with either fighting or taking flight. This hormone can be a lifesaver in the face of real danger, because it brings in extra glucose and oxygen into the muscles by increasing blood supply. But, more often than not, Adrenalin is produced in our body in response to stress from everyday situations that pose no real danger.

    When Adrenalin levels remain high, it produces many side effects such as irritability, poor sleep quality, and unnecessary anxiety. It also triggers the production of cortisol, another hormone produced by the same gland. This hormone is associated with weight gain in the upper part of the body, especially face, chest, and the abdominal area. Poor sleep also contributes to weight gain because growth hormones that favor fat burn are produced during sleep at night.

    People of adrenal body type find it difficult or even impossible to lose weight with calorie restricted diets. That’s because starvation increases stress, which, in turn, increases the production of Adrenalin and cortisol. Strenuous workouts also have a similar effect, and sabotage their weight loss efforts. Adrenal type happens to be the most common body type. Dr. Berg’s advice to the Adrenal type is to take it easy, supply the body with the nutrients that support proper adrenal function and, most importantly, get sufficient sleep.

    The Thyroid Type

    Thyroid is an endocrine organ (hormone producing gland) found in the front lower neck portion, but it produces hormones that regulate cell metabolism, heart function and overall physical and mental development. Proper functioning of thyroid is essential for weight management because it also controls appetite and gut function, including the utilization of glucose and basal metabolic rate. A sluggish thyroid could be the reason for weight gain in many people. Thyroid body types accumulate fat all over the body rather than concentrating it in any specific area. Other characteristic symptoms are hair loss and ridged nails.

    Many women struggling with obesity, especially following childbirth have thyroid problems. That is because of excess circulating levels of the hormone estrogen during pregnancy tend to suppress thyroid function.

    The Ovary Type

    Ovaries are a pair of small reproductive organs found on either side of the uterus in women. Besides producing eggs during their reproductive phase, they also act as endocrine glands secreting hormones.  Overactive ovaries can cause hormonal imbalance that may lead to weight gain, particularly in the lower abdomen and thighs. Sagging stomach and saddlebags constitute the typical Ovary type body shape. It may be accompanied by heavy and painful periods, bloating, facial hair, and acne. Extra estrogen production during pregnancy can turn an Ovary type person into a Thyroid type person after childbirth and result in further fat deposition all over the body.

    The Liver Type

    Liver is the largest internal organ in the body occupying the upper portion of abdomen. It is the main chemical factory of the body and performs various functions related to digestion and absorption of food, glucose metabolism, and protein synthesis. People with Liver type body typically have big bellies and thin legs. Although the protruding stomach makes them look fat, they have low levels of body fat. The bulge is due to ascites––a collection of fluid in the abdominal cavity as a result of liver dysfunction. One characteristic of Liver type is craving for carbohydrates because fats are not properly digested due to insufficient production of bile. Other symptoms include gas and abdominal discomfort after eating and irritability in the morning due to low blood sugar.

    Is exercise involved?

    Exercise is not projected as essential to weight loss in this guide. To many overweight people who consider workouts to be the hardest part of weight loss programs, Dr. Berg’s recommendations may come as a relief. Excessive fat deposition is viewed as a disease symptom resulting from hormonal imbalance, so the focus is on treating the underlying problem, not adding to the stress by introducing exercise.

    The Adrenal type in particular should avoid all forms of physical exertion over and above a sedate walk on level ground. Not only actual workouts, but the very requirement of having to exercise can be stressful and produce a negative effect. At the same time, Dr. Berg’s Body Type Program outlines when and how people can safely exercise and derive health benefits.

    Nutritional profile

    The nutritional profile of the diet varies with the body type. The high protein and fat allowances of the Adrenal and Ovary types ensures a regular supply of all the essential nutrients. The diet also includes large amounts of vegetables, which provide fiber as well as vitamins and minerals.

    As for the Thyroid and Liver types that are required to stick to a low protein-low fat diet, they may be lacking in some of the nutrients, especially fat soluble A and D vitamins. They may require extra food supplements to make up the deficit. Dr. Berg’s specially formulated products may serve as a good source.

    The Cost Factor

    The cost of the New Body Type Guide is only a small part of the diet. The specific food requirements of each body type have to be met either through freshly prepared foods or specially formulated supplements or a combination of both. Processed foods should be excluded from the diet as they may contain lots of additives such as soy protein that can harm some body types. Healthy, organically grown produce is a must, and they should be consumed in large amounts, especially the vegetables. This can increase your grocery bills, not to mention the cost of supplements if you decide to take them as well. [2]

    Do People Lose Weight with the New Body Type Guide? 

    The book is actually named Dr. Berg's New Body Type Guide: Get Healthy Lose Weight & Feel Great. According to the author, that is the exact sequence of events: you need to first get healthy to lose excess weight. Correct nutrition––taking in food that contains the specific nutrients your body type requires and avoiding certain items that have a negative effect on your endocrine function––is the key to regulating your metabolism and weight. [3]

    Dieters who have found it nearly impossible to lose weight or to keep it off with other weight loss diets not only get to know why it was so but also find new, extremely effective  ways to achieve their goal. For example, a weight loss diet that required people to consume large quantities of cruciferous vegetables––cabbage, kale, and broccoli––would have worked well for some people. However, if you are a Thyroid type, it wouldn’t have helped you shed pounds because these vegetables suppress thyroid function by depleting iodine. Recognizing your body type is the first step, and then all it takes is following the diet guidelines for healing. Weight loss comes as a natural outcome.

    Level of Effort

    The effort required to follow through the nutritional program varies depending on your body type. For instance, people of Adrenal and Ovary body types are encouraged to eat lots of protein and fat, particularly animal protein and fat. Most dieters would find it surprisingly easy to follow compared to the many starvation diets they would have tried in the past with little effect. But, Liver and Thyroid types are prescribed a low protein-low fat diet, which may be relatively harder.

    Similarly, Ovary and Thyroid Types should avoid soy protein, but for entirely different reasons––soy proteins suppress thyroid function in Thyroid types but exacerbate the symptoms of Ovary types since it increases estrogen levels. Soy protein is very hard to avoid, since most ready made foods, including health bars and protein shakes have soy in some form of other. Vegetarians and vegans also might find the food guidelines relatively hard; they have limited sources of good protein, except for spirulina.

    Conclusion

    The New Body Type Guide contains invaluable insights into metabolism and nutrition. It can work as your personal guide to understand your own body and its unique nutritional needs. Since no one else understands your body as well as you can, it is worth learning how you can tackle your weight issues as well as other health problems through correct diet that you can work out for yourself.

    If finding the right nutrients for your body type is hard, one could depend on Dr. Berg’s nutritional supplements tailor-made for different body types. They are available through the website: https://shop.drberg.com/. Additionally, The Body Type Program available online would guide you through food and exercise choices for your body type. These product and services obviously cost quite a bit. But the book, available for under $20, is a small investment for the wealth of knowledge it provides. [4]

    Ketogenic Diet: Miracle Or A Dangerous Marketing Trick?

    Ketogenic Keto Diet Review

    We, especially us women, are constantly in search of a new, better, faster results, miracle diet that will finally help us feel beautiful and loved. Have you noticed how each year old diets are reinvented into something “new” and “the best” and “the diet”? The Question that comes to mind is if the diet is so good and has seen tremendous success why did it not stick and was forgotten? Do you remember all the “most popular” diets that have come and gone? Some are still fighting to stay alive by rebranding, reinventing or simply sticking to the same basics but throwing more advertising money and aggressive marketing tricks. Some of the diets or diet pills have later been deemed as extremely unsafe, dangerous and sometimes even plain ineffective but it does not stop some people from still trying and not giving up on the hope to one day achieve that dream body that we have been conditioned to think will bring us latent happiness.

    Ketogenic Plan

    ProsCons
    •    Quick Weightloss
    •    Easy to follow
    •    All fats allowed
    •    Many recipes available
    •    Dangerous without professional

    •    Many unpleasant side effects
    •    Can have permanent side effects

    Ketogenic diet is a high-fat, extremely low-carb diet. Developed in the 1920s to treat epilepsy, it is a starvation diet modeled on the ancient practice of fasting that is known to offer significant relief from epileptic symptoms. Although ketogenic diet has been found to be beneficial in reducing seizures, especially in children, it was largely replaced by modern epileptic drugs. However, interest in this diet has been rekindled of late, not only for treating the disorder but also as a weight loss diet.

    How the Ketogenic Diet Works

    Normally, our brain requires a steady supply of glucose for its functioning, but, in the absence of glucose, as when you fast, it uses fat as an alternative fuel. When fat is broken down for energy, a group of substances called ketones are produced, and they cross the blood-brain barrier to feed the brain cells. [1]

    Epileptic seizures seem to reduce in frequency and severity when ketones take the place of glucose as the main source of energy. That is the reason why fasting had been recommended as an effective therapy for epilepsy for ages. Ketogenic diet mimics this effect by eliminating carbohydrates––the source of glucose––from the diet while increasing fat consumption. [2]

    In ketogenic diet, the almost complete elimination of carbohydrates alters the normal metabolic pathways, forcing the body to burn fat for energy. As a result, ketones such as beta-hydroxybutyric acid and acetone are synthesized in the liver from fat, putting the body in a state of ‘ketosis,’ where fat is rapidly used up as the major fuel for energy, rather than glucose. In other words, ketogenic diet turns the body into a fat-burning machine, which has, not surprisingly, made it popular as a weight loss measure.

    Ketogenic diet for weight loss is not well defined, although it is generally agreed that carbohydrates should be limited to less than 15-20 grams. One popular 1,600 calorie diet plan includes 136 grams of fat from different sources, 74 grams of animal-based protein, and 20 grams of total carbohydrates from all types of foods. Although this plan is calorie-restrictive to some extent, it is considered quite generous compared to the 800- calorie fluid diet recommended by a Dr. Oliver Di Pietro from Florida. This is a rather expensive clinical diet consisting of 70% fats from oils, butter, animal fats, mayonnaise, full-fat milk and cream, avocado etc. While it allows a protein content of 25%, net carbohydrates are limited to just 5%. Administered directly into the esophagus through a feeding tube, this extreme keto-diet has been strongly criticized even by advocates of ketogenic diet.

    Is Fasting Required On Ketogenic Diet?

    fasting

    Some Ketogenic diet plans start with a day of fasting to kicks tart the keto metabolism, while others recommend easing into it gradually over several weeks of restricting calories and carbohydrates in a phased manner. This may help reduce the initial side effects, but obviously prolongs the ordeal; so many keto-enthusiasts prefer the quick-start method. Intermittent fasting, in fact, is an integral part of many ketogenic diet plans.

    Is Exercise Involved With Ketogenic Diet?

    Ketogenic diet as a weight loss method is mainly concerned with changes in nutritional inputs to facilitate a fat-burning metabolism. As mentioned before, it is originally developed exclusively as a treatment for epilepsy, and fat reduction is just a side effect. There are no exercise guidelines that go along with the diet. As a matter of fact, dieters are not likely to be in a condition for extra exertion during the period. Hence, ketogenic diet cannot be considered a complete or wholesome program for attaining a well-toned body.

    Nutritional Profile Of Ketogenic Diet

    There is severe restriction on the intake of carbohydrates in all forms, including vegetables and fruits that contain starch and sugar. This makes the diet nutritionally deficient with respect to vitamins and minerals that our body normally gets from these types of foods. Nutritional supplements such as multivitamins and minerals are a must while you’re on ketogenic diet to avoid deficiency diseases. In addition, a fiber supplement may be necessary to ease bowel movements since constipation is one of the most common side effects of this extremely low-crab diet. [3]

    The Price Of Dieting

    Cost Of Dieting

    Dieters on Ketogenic diet cut down on fruits and vegetables while increasing the amount of proteins and fats. It may translate to lower expenses on one side, but may increase costs on other counts. You also have to factor in the cost of essential nutritional supplements to prevent vitamin and mineral deficiencies, not to mention regular testing to check for any adverse effect of the diet.

    Do Dieters Lose Weight on the Ketogenic Diet?

    The good news about Ketogenic diet is that it does help people lose excess weight. Since the diet includes good amounts of protein, it can actually help you lose fat tissue without significant loss of muscle mass, unlike many calorie-restricted diets. Ketogenesis is an altered metabolic state in which fat is exclusively used up for energy production in place of glucose from carbohydrates. Some of the fat comes from the diet itself, which typically has a very high percentage of fat. But your body initiated into fat burning mode uses up some of the stored fat as well, which obviously results in weight loss.

    Dieters should be aware that ketosis is actually a milder form of ketoacidosis, a life-threatening condition that occurs in Type I diabetics. Although ketosis is not considered dangerous in controlled levels, it is an extreme measure for weight loss. Dieters should seek immediate medical help if they develop any of the following symptoms of ketoacidosis:

    • Extreme dehydration and thirst
    • Nausea, vomiting, and severe stomach cramps
    • Shortness of breath and fruity breath
    • Extreme tiredness and confusion

    Diabetics, in particular, should not adopt this diet for weight loss, except under medical supervision.

    Level of Effort

    Ketogenic diet takes a lot of effort when it comes to following the strict food restrictions. You’re expected to make drastic changes in your diet, increasing the intake of fat and protein while keeping carbohydrates to a minimum. Braving through the severe side effects such as headaches, mood swings, stomach cramps and flu-like symptoms––called keto-flu––can be quite tough.

    Since there’s no consensus on the exact ratio of macronutrients––fats, proteins, and carbohydrates––to be included in the diet, you probably have to find your own sweet spot by trial and error. Another concern with this diet is that it is quite unforgiving. Even the slightest deviation from the diet can play havoc with your metabolism. For example, cheating for even a single day can set you back for weeks. [4]

    This information is not intended to replace the advice of a doctor. ExpertsKnowBest.com disclaims any liability for the decisions you make based on this information. *Results may vary.

    Conclusion

    Ketogenic diet is effective in reducing body fat, but the probable risks involved in adopting this highly restrictive diet make it a poor choice for weight loss, unless it is administered under medical supervision. Moreover, if you have large amounts of excess fat tissue, rapid fat reduction through this method can leave you looking like a bag of bones. Practical difficulties such as constant constipation, poor mood and lack of adequate food choices make the diet hard to follow through. Advocates of the diet warn that increasing carbohydrate intake while one is on ketosis can backfire. Dieters may regain all the lost weight, and some more, if they don’t strictly adhere to the prescribed eating plan. Ketogenic diet does show quick results, but it’s a poor substitute for healthier and sustainable weight loss methods that combine a balanced diet with lifestyle modifications. [5]

    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.

    Trim Down Club Review

    Trim Down Club is an online membership site that claims that it offers all of the resources to guide you in making a healthy lifestyle change. What does this online membership offer that I can't just access on the internet free of charge?

    Trim Down Club Review

    To Get a Limited Time Offer

    Click HERE Visit Official Trim Down Club Page 

    I’m not going to lie: my favorite thing about the Trim Down Club (besides that science backs up the plan) is that it’s inexpensive to join—a pair of movie tickets costs more. Plus, there’s a solid 60-day money-back guarantee. For me, that’s huge. It’s super-smart nutrition, plenty of tools, support and guidance, and it’s a steal. Bonus: If it doesn’t work for you, you don’t pay. [1]

    So am I in? Let’s see.

    The Bottom Line: Is Trim Down Club Worth a Try?

    YES!

    I’m generally dubious and often skeptical about diets, but I can’t find fault with the concept of the nutritional meal planning in the Trim Down Club and I have given it a good going-over. It makes sense. You’re just eating much better food that also happens to burn fat and—bonus—the whole family can join in. Make it a family affair. Now get in the kitchen and start cooking. And if it doesn’t work, you get your money back. Visit Trim Down Club official page HERE.

    The 411 on Trim Down Club

    Shackelford explains that the Trim Down Club is health, fitness and nutrition pros teaching you how to swap fat-storing for fat-burning foods. Personal menu plans tell exactly what carbs, fats, proteins, fruits, etc. you need to eat and in what combos at what time during the day. They do the work; you just follow.

    First, choose your favorite foods and the online tool will instantly create a weekly menu to help you melt fat off your body, with simple recipes using your good food. The Trim Down Club has a library of several hundred recipes and everything is immediately accessible online, so no matter where you are you can log in.

    Even if you have never cooked, and even if you don’t always have the time to cook meals, this family-friendly diet plan includes lots of on-the-run meals and snacks that take no time to prep. Shackelford says the Trim Down Club will help to transform your body to its ideal weight or “…blueprint: When you feed it the right food in the right combinations, the fat burns away.” You’ll see a difference immediately in energy and the way clothing fits, she says. [2]

    The Trim Down Club website offers members full access to its fat-burning forum, an extremely supportive and active community. With its Quick Start Guide, you get going with a step-by-step plan that includes the best new science, articles on nutrition, tips, tricks and hacks to create fat-burning meals. The homemade ketchup, the baked chicken parm, the zucchini chips? They all look amazing. And easy to create.

    Shackleford says Trim Down Club doesn’t believe that losing weight and being healthy should cost you a fortune; it’s a bargain and it has a 60-day 100 percent money back guarantee. Shackelford says,

    You lose the weight or you don’t pay. We believe that if our program doesn’t work for you, you shouldn’t have to pay for it. The Trim Down Club guarantees you lose weight or you don’t pay.” [2]

    When you join you get some freebies (who doesn’t want free stuff?) including the Trim Down Club food shopping guide, the Trim Down Club Cookbook, the Perfect Soup Cookbook and—my favorite—“Express Meals for 14 Days,” plus an  easy-to-follow meal plans guide for people on the go. Me. You.

    We have found plenty positive customer reviews. People who are ready to make lifestyle changes and are committed to their goal seem to like how easy and spelled out the program is.
