    Skinny Fiber Review

    Skinny Fiber Diet is a supplement sold by SkinnyBodyCare.com. The starter pack bottle is currently sold on their website for $59.99 (30% off original price) for a limited time and on Amazon for a discounted price. But who knows how long a limited time price lasts these days? Keep in mind when looking at deals on products that are advertised in this way, that if there is no given date that the offer ends, chances are that it is a marketing ploy to get you to make the purchase sooner. The website features three other products by the names of SkinnyBodMAX, HiBurn8, and Instant Youth. The website includes the home sales page and a page with ingredients that pertain to Skinny Fiber. The other pages are dedicated to each of the other products on the market by Skinny Body Care. That being said, there is very little information on the product and its effectiveness. They use a five-minute video and three testimonial images on their sales page to give the consumer brief information about the product. According to Skinny Body Care, the most important key to losing weight is making sure that your body is in the right condition to lose weight. According to Skinny Fiber representatives, no matter how much one alters their diet and exercise routine, if your body is not fortified with the proper nutrients, the chances of finding success in weight loss is slim. Sure you can make statements like that, but there is no scientific evidence to prove that their product is what will give your body the proper nutrients.

    There is very limited information on this product. The most information provided is regarding the ingredients used in the product itself. In fact, when you search the product there is more detailed information on sites that have reviewed the product rather than the actual company page. This product has been around for about 7 years and only has three testimonials to share? This is not a good sign. If the product was the effective, there would be plenty of information to share about it on it’s very own sales page.

    They advertise a 90-day challenge all over the web page. This challenge is carried out by taking a photo of yourself prior to starting the diet pills, taking the pills for 90 days straight, then sending in an after photo. Mind you, in order to carry out this challenge you would have to purchase multiple bottles. For a simple step up from plain fiber, these bottles definitely add up to be pretty costly. What makes this fiber pills so much better than your average fiber that you can buy at any grocery store?

    Skinny Fiber Claims

    Skinny Fiber supplements claim to be the most effective product on the market as well as the safest. Most times when a product can claim it is “safest”, it is not very effective. They promote healthy weight management, proprietary formula, support health and detoxification, provide antioxidant properties, etc. Just to clarify a proprietary formula is a term used when there are no active ingredients in the supplement. There is very little product detail, all we are given are a few before and after images and the ingredients of the product. The main ingredient is Glucomannan. This is listed as a natural dietary fiber that “expands your stomach and makes you eat less” (SkinnyFiberDiet.com). Along with Glucomannan, they claim that their product is made up of two other appetite suppressants, and the key component being enzymes. According to this diet, with the proper enzymes being consumed our bodies should be able to function fully and shed unwanted pounds as efficiently as possible. Well yes, we can agree that if our body that is in the proper condition and health it should be able to make something of weight loss. The issue here is that some simple fiber pills are not the only thing needed to maintain weight loss. Exercise and proper nutrition are crucial. Skinny Fiber does not offer these important factors, therefore it will not suffice.

    Does Skinny Fiber Have Scientific Backing?

    Not very surprising, but there is not any scientific backing provided for the supplements. They list the ingredients along with a brief description of what each ingredient is, but no scientific resources to back their claims.

    They claim that the enzymes our bodies will receive from taking the supplement, will help our bodies to function at it’s best ability. Yes, we are aware that digestive enzymes can come in the form of supplement and capsules but the issue here is that the amount we should be taking is all relative to the foods we consume. To generalize and just take a fiber capsule that has these enzymes once a day and then adjusted to twice a day is not how these enzymes are designed to work. That being said, there is no scientific research to explain the enzymes that are included in the ingredients, so how do we know that this is really the case? Does this fiber supplement bring everything into balance that easily? That’s just it, it’s a risky 50/50.

    Is Skinny Fiber Effective For Weight Loss?

    As far as being effective, the Glucomannan seems to be their only claim to fame. Rather than treating this supplement as a daily go-to, many consumers found that when they did stick to taking it from time-to-time they would feel full for a longer period of time.

    “ …I will continue to take these, as I do feel like I am less hungry when I take them. The directions ask that you drink lots of water when you take the pill, so that may also be part of why I was less hungry. Because it did help me stay regular and I felt like it did make me less hungry, I'm giving it four stars. To be fair, I don't think buyers should automatically expect weight loss, as that happens from a combination of so many other variables…”-Sherry, an Amazon Customer

    However, feeling full for a longer period of time (which is not guaranteed to occur for all) is not a solution for weight loss. For long term weight loss you will need a balanced nutritional plan and exercise routine to keep you on track. A supplement might be an added factor to help achieve your goals, but it will not be the solution on it’s own.

    What Are Skinny Fiber's Side Effects?

    There are not many side effects to be aware of as they do not explicitly warn you of any. Considering the product seems to be not much more than a glamorized fiber product that you can find at any market for under $10, lack of explicit side effects makes sense.

    Skinny Fiber's Support

    Not until you start going through the process of purchasing the product, you are given the option for support. They give you a phone number (817) 479-9198 in which you can contact their staff for support, to tell about your experience, or to gather further knowledge (or so they say). In the several calls I have made to this phone line, they have an automated machine that says all of the representatives are busy or that you have reached them outside of business hours. In calling several times and getting the same response I have no choice but to think, they do not actually take calls over the phone. I find this to be extremely frustrating. If I am a customer looking to purchase your product and want to be assured that I am making the right choice and you do not have anyone available to help, it is alarming. I do not know about you but that automatically puts doubt in my mind about following through with the purchase.

    They refer you to contact their [email protected] email. If a client is really looking to get immediate feedback and feel confident in their purchase, this sort of delayed response is not ideal. There is also a “contact us” form in which you can fill out your information and send them a message. There is no specified turnaround time on the response using this method either. Therefore, who knows when you will get an informative response?

    As far as their money back and return policy. They claim to offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee (not including the shipping and handling costs) if it is your first product purchase and is returned within 30 days of the purchase date and a little bit longer grace period if multiple purchases are made in the same month. Well after experiencing their lack of customer support, I would be very skeptical about getting that Money Back Guarantee after all.

    Bottom Line

    Skinny Fiber Diet is a supplement program that claims to help you lose weight by suppressing your appetite and balancing the enzymes in your body. However, as I looked into this product more, it is indeed just a glorified fiber pill. You can go to your local grocer and get a large tin of fiber powder for under $10. Skinny Fiber goes to say that they’re product is more beneficial than just the fiber due to the enzymes that it provides your body with. Yes, digestive enzymes are great and sometimes our bodies need a little extra assistance, but by taking these pills once and eventually twice a day you are not making the proper adjustments. The dosage of enzymes should be based on the foods that you are consuming. Aside from the faulty generalized dosage of the pills, they are not made of any active ingredients, therefore how are any changes being made? Truth is they are not. Lastly, the lack of customer support when you call their phone line is not ideal when you purchase an item like this online. You never know when you need to get ahold of a representative and when they just direct you to an email address with an automated response right off the bat, is just not promising. Overall, for those of you that are looking to get rid of bloating, have your body and enzymes functioning properly, gain energy, and lose unwanted pounds, I suggest you look into another program.

    Rip 60 Diet Review

    Rip 60 is an exercise program that claims to get you ripped and in shape in as fast as 60 days time. Is this program really all that it's cracked up to be?

    rip60 Review

    Rip 60 is a workout plan that uses at home equipment installments, videos, and recipes to try and assist people achieve their “dream body” in 60 days. That claim right there is an exaggerated statement that automatically has me skeptical of the program. This workout is often compared to P90x and is featured on several websites including Amazon and other equipment websites such as Free Motion. However, Rip 60 does not have it’s own website. Without a home and sales page, there is a lot of room for concern. If this program were well established and successful wouldn’t they have a website for it? To see how well this program works, you as the consumer would have a lot of research to do? Fear not, I have done it for you.

    Rip 60 comes with DVD’s, a nutritional guide, and cords to attach to a door-frame for at home workouts. Keep in mind these cords are not designed to support anyone over 300 pounds. Some of you may be under this weight, but others may not be. If you are not under 300 pounds, you must stop right here because unfortunately this particular exercise program does not have a solution for you (or any of us for that matter). This program is normally sold for about $120 or online at Walmart for about $72. After purchasing this main package, there are other pieces of equipment that can be pricey and mandatory in order to perform some of the workouts properly, which can add up of course. They offer a 90-day limited warranty, but it is vague as to if that is only offered on Amazon and what it even entails (Something a website and some support could alleviate).

    The workouts that make up this program are predominantly high intensity workouts. For many of us looking for a new diet, we are not looking to jump right into high intensity exercises so this may not be the best if you are a beginner to this whole change of lifestyle deal.  Also another thing to be aware of is that there are professionals such as Jillian Michaels and other in-shape figures that are you leading you in the workouts on their own without others just like you on the screen. For some this may be “fitspiration” and for others it may be unrealistic and discouraging. Whether you find this inspiring or not, the bottom line is that Rip 60 does not meet the simple qualifications to be a recommendable diet and program.

    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.

    Rip 60 Claims

    As we can see by the name of the plan, Rip 60 claims to have your body completely made over in the short time frame of 60 days. If you are eating healthy and participating in high intensity workouts daily, you are bound to shed some pounds. Although, long-term success is far from guaranteed. With that in mind, there are precautions to be aware of.

    The first is that this program only lasts for 60 days so the results are short term, rather than a full on lifestyle change. Sure, they provide you with a 60-day nutrition guide. But again, what happens when those two months end? In undergoing programs that will truly work for a long lasting period of time it is important to look for sustainable programs. The easiest determinant of a sustainable program is if they offer follow up guides, nutrition plans, workouts, and customer support. This will allow you to carry out a full on lifestyle change at your own pace and in a manner that your body allows for. Believe it or not you will not follow a high intensity workout and bland 60-day nutrition guide over and over for the rest of your life. However, if you have the tools to form the proper habits, you have much greater chances of success. Unfortunately, these tools are not provided with this program in particular.

    Does Rip 60 Have Scientific Backing?

    There is very little background information on the program. It has been endorsed by Jillian Michaels, the Star trainer of the Biggest Loser, which has been enough to persuade many individuals to take on the challenge, but it is not enough to persuade me. Without any scientific proof or research provided, who’s to say the foods they are telling you to eat, the portions they provide, and the types of workouts they say to take part in are the best for you?

    One must always take caution when making drastic changes to their nutrition and exercise routine. Sometimes a plan that works well for others may not fit your personal needs and be beneficial to you. Using cords and different equipment installments in your home can cause more of a headache often times and leaves a lot of room for error and questions. But without much knowledge on the product, how are you to get clarity and direction with your new purchase and program that you were hoping would change your life? Seems a bit too risky…

    Is Rip 60 Effective in Weight Loss?

    As mentioned earlier, it is much more difficult for this program to be effective if the client has not had prior exercise routines. A high intensity workout can be difficult to just jump into. The other issue that may diminish the effectiveness is the nutrition plan. The meals that they recommend are foods that are very low in calories and are not tailored in a way that can be applied to a variety of eating habits. In other words, they do not give you many options depending on what type of eater you are. If you are a picky eater or have certain allergies, it will be difficult for you to follow such a plan. The food you eat plays a large role in the amount of pounds you will shed. Without customer support how will you know which replacement ingredients will be beneficial or not?

    Another issue when it comes to the success of this program is the time frame allotted for this program. It is not designed to help you long-term. Rather, it is a 60 day plan to supposedly get you there quickly, but after those 60 days are over you will not have created a realistic routine for yourself to carry out for the long term.

    Plans have been seen to be effective for those that already have a pretty strict diet and workout routine and are just trying to amp their habits to the next level. For those of you that are just getting started, this diet plan is not effective. This is most definitely not the diet for you if you are looking to make significant changes to your lifestyle for good. On the other hand, those that just are looking for something to step up what you already have going, I would still advise that you be aware of the lack of support available with the purchase of this program.

    What are Rip 60 Side Effects?

    The negative side effects to be aware of could derive from overworking yourself and pushing your body beyond it’s limits if you are not used to working out. The other negative side effects would be the way your body reacts to following a low calorie and restrictive diet. Restrictive diets are not only difficult to sustain but there is also no scientific proof to the diets they provide you with. Therefore, how can you be so sure that it is the best nutrition for your body and future health?

    Rip 60 Support

    There is no support for this product in particular. Depending on where you purchase this product there may be a general phone number, such as Walmart. As far as a specialist for the product, there is no information given. Once you make the purchase it is up to you to hold yourself accountable and follow the food guide and videos. There is a Facebook page that offers other exercise tips and updates, as well as a Twitter page with giveaways and such. Although there is not any phone or email support to go along with the program, the return policies and money back guarantee are all based off of which platform you make your purchase. The terms and conditions for purchasing the product off of Walmart.com may differ entirely than making the purchase off of Amazon.com.

    While there is not necessarily a money back guarantee, there is a 90 day limited warranty available for the program. Whether the details on the warranty are only available upon placing an order or from the retailer itself, there is no straight-forward explanation. It is mentioned on the description of the product on Amazon that a warranty is available, but no further details. The problem that arises here is that sure there may be a warranty on the equipment, but most people undergoing such a change need support, guidance, and assurance. With no provided direct email, phone number, or community forum, this support is unachievable.

    Bottom Line

    ProsCons
    •    60 Day Nutrition Guide

    •    Workout videos feature recognizable Personal Trainers.

    •    Lack of Customer Support

    •    No scientific evidence
    •    Price differences depending on location of purchase
    •    Varying Money Back Guarantee

    Rip 60 is an at home workout that claims to have you ripped and in your best shape in a quick 60 days. As we can conclude from my research, there is hardly and scientific proof other than the obvious and very little support so you must be very committed and self-disciplined in order to see results of any kind. If you are looking for a program to kick-start your weight loss journey, a program like this is not what you are looking for. On the other hand if you are in pretty good shape and already participate in a consistent workout routine, this may be an option, but hopefully you are fine with being on your own and not seeking any guidance. Overall, a program such as Rip 60 is not sustainable and does not provide enough information for us to recognize it as a reputable program. Instead, we advise that you seek a program that is certain to help you lose muscle tenderness, bloating, unwanted pounds, and leave you feeling energized!

    Provida Diet Review

    Provida Life Sciences is a corporation that offers several supplements and diet programs that claim to help you lose weight. Do not let the sciences fool you, let's take a look at what they really bring to the table.

    provida diet review

    Review overview

    Summary

    Provida Life Sciences is a corporation that oversees a few brands that provide consumers with different types of weight loss programs said to fit their individual lifestyle.

    Pros

    • Hardly Any

    Cons

    • Phony Customer Support
    • Lack of Information on individual products
    • No Scientific Backing
    • Lack of Testimonials
    • Vague information on supplements

    • Customer Reviews
    • Customer Support
    • Money Back Guarantee
    3 10 Bad

    Provida Life Sciences is an online corporation that has several fitness and nutrition products on the market. This variety of products includes programs, DVD’s, cookbooks, supplements, and more. Their ultimate focus is supposedly on the health of the consumer and their families.  Provida’s brands have dimmed down into the main Food Lovers Fat Loss System and Food Lovers Fat Loss System Online. Aside from these programs, they offer several supplements and books to attempt to aid in exercise and weight loss. Since there are several avenues for the consumer to test out, it is tough to guarantee success. For example, the first program they offer is known as “Food Lovers Fat Loss System”, this is geared toward clients that are not looking for a restrictive diet, but instead learning how to eat their favorite foods in the proper portions and ratios. Understanding portion sizes is important, but that is just one small factor of what it takes to be successful in making a change in your life. Do you need to pay just about $140 to understand the proper portion sizes? We think most definitely not. It is going to take a lot more than a simple portions guide to make a long lasting change. Just a quick reminder that the foods you consume, DO indeed matter and if you are eating small portions of unhealthy foods, you are not helping yourself or your health in the future.

    Provida Claims

    Provida claims that their products “will work”. They do offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee for any customers that do not benefit from their products.

    A claim that they make is that their products will create dramatic results for families with the use of their products. This is a very vague claim. Of course, reducing intake and portions sizes will make for a change, so will adding supplements to your diet. But what kind of changes effect the whole family? Unfortunately there is no scientific backing or proof which leads us to think that this may just be puffery.

    Lastly, they pride themselves on their practicality. In their promise of success they mention that their practical programs are far more effective than any other fat loss programs such as those fad diets and starvation methods. This is quite a claim. Who’s to say some customers may not feel like they are starving when following these strict portions? After making such a statement, you would assume that they would provide some scientific proof on the website backing up the claim that they are more effective than any other fat loss program.

    Does Provida Have Scientific Backing?

    Overall, there are no peer reviewed scientific articles to prove that these products work. For us, this means that there is simply not enough to believe that this product is worth purchasing. Depending on which product you decide to go with from Provida Life Sciences, the extent of scientific backing differs. For example, the DVDs do not have any given scientific backing. On the other hand, the supplements claim that they have “researched ingredients” but do not provide sources or proof on the website. This raises the question of whether or not the makers are using puffery to their advantage or have simply left out a critical portion of proof for some odd reason.

    Is Provida Effective in Weight Loss?

    Provida has quite a few different products, some of the products are sold by themselves such as the supplements, and then the others in the form of programs. The most effective diets have a balance of nutrition and exercise that they hold you accountable to. That being said, what Provida has to offer does not necessarily put everything into play. They sell a plethora of products but just expect you to put it all into proper routine on your own. This is not what you are looking for. Sure if you buy a supplement here, try this workout there, and eat small amounts of food, there is a chance you’ll come up with the right mix, but that is not ideal. First of all there is no guarantee that any of their products are scientifically engineered for success. Second, why waste time and money trying to come up with the right formula and entrusting a brand with no customer support and lack of scientific evidence, when you can find your solution in another program?

    Further there are two different web pages for their “Food Lovers Fat Loss System”. Depending on where you access the page from, with completely different designs, this raises quite a bit of confusion as to whether or not this product is faulty and even further if it is effective in anyway whatsoever?

    What are Provida's Side Effects?

    There are not any explicit side effects that they warn you of prior to consuming their supplements or participating in their plans. In looking at the products that they have advertised on their website. The anxiety and mood boosting pills by the name of Symetrin, raise concern. Most often times pills that have these abilities are prescribed by a doctor. Although they claim that they are non-addictive and can be taken daily, it is always best to run it by a physician first. Naturally there are side effects with taking medications that should be forewarned to customers, but are not in this case. Other side effects that could arise would be fatigue or headaches when altering your diet so drastically as certain plans or slimming supplements from Provida call for. This is natural, but a disclaimer should be provided for those of you that are unfamiliar with participating in such programs.

    Provida Support

    Provida Life Sciences fools you with their phony supportive community. When it comes to the customer and any questions you have regarding the product or further information, you are provided with a support email [email protected] as well as a “customer care and corporate offices” phone number -(877) 776-8432-.

    I was very caught off guard by Provida and their “customer support” phone line that they provided. After calling this number, it went to an automated response asking if I were 50 years or older. Then once you click that option, you must take part in a survey with a chance to win a cruise. I am sorry, but I am looking for answers regarding my new purchase or interest in the diet, not a free cruise? After the survey, they say “Thank You for participating and Goodbye”. I tried calling back, and the automated response says “this phone number can no longer be dialed from your area. This is the phone number given on the Provida website itself. Not even one of their specialized products. This just screams scam. This is faulty support and extremely unprofessional. You can bet that you will not receive any responses or feedback on inquiries you may have. How are you going to make a lifestyle change with support like that? How are you going to make sure that you get that money back guarantee?

    Bottom Line

    Provida Life Sciences is a corporation that does not hold true to it’s name. Do not let the “sciences” fool you. This corporation oversees a number of supplements, products, and diet programs. None of which are backed by scientific proof or research. Their lack of customer service when it came down to picking up the phone and giving them a call for more insight was alarming. Lastly, there is no full on step-by-step program to guarantee you with success on your journey. With a plethora of random products how are you so sure as to which ones to spend your time and money on? With that in mind, we do not recommend Provida and their programs. We advise you to look into another option that is guaranteed to leave you energized, help you shed unwanted pounds, and overall health.

    Whole30 Diet Review

    Whole30 is a diet that claims to provide your body with a fresh restart after eliminating multiple foods groups for a strict 30 days. Does not seem so wholesome to me. Let's take a look at whether or not elimination diets really do have our best health in store.

    Review overview

    Summary

    Whole30 is a program in which men and women of all ages follow a diet that is supposedly “wholesome” for a consecutive 30 days.

    Pros

    • Inexpensive

    Cons

    • Creates intolerances
    • Minimal direct customer support
    • Eliminate several food groups at once
    • Extensive amount of time

    Must say, putting a month into a program seems like much more of a commitment than the week-long fad diets that some are willing to purchase. The Whole30 program is a 30-day plan that was created by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig in 2009. In their autobiographies they both claim to be Certified Sports Nutritionists. However, where did they achieve these certifications? Did they simply have to pay an online certification fee or did they go through extensive credible courses?

    This is a program in which you eliminate several of the most common food groups and ingredients in hopes of giving your body a chance to restart. Elimination diets tend to raise a lot of skepticism. Our bodies function to their full potential when we consume the proper nutrients and uphold a balanced diet. Entirely cutting out food groups such as dairy, grains, and legumes does not create balance, instead in many cases it can create a depletion of critical nutrients. The Whole30 program hit the market as a book by the name of The Whole30: The 30 Day Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom that is priced at about $30 and is sold all over the web. Aside from the book, there are several PDF’s and downloads available to anyone interested on Whole30.com.

    Whole30 Claims

    In following the Whole30 diet program, the founders claim that you will cut cravings, change the way you think about food, change your habits, etc. They also claim that it can largely affect your health in a beneficial manner. There are stories featured on the website in which there is some truth behind these claims. However, if you do not fully follow the 30 days of elimination then their claims do not hold true and they make you very aware of that. You might as well have just not even started it at all.

    In order for your body to fully be restarted in the way that this is supposed to be designed to help you do, you are forbidden to get off track. Even a bite of something that is not permitted will have you back at Day 1 of this month long challenge. Do we really want to spend an entire month depriving ourselves of common food categories that are not even scientifically proven to be of any harm to our bodies in the first place?

    Does Whole30 Have Scientific Backing?

    There is no scientific evidence to prove that an elimination diet or “modified paleo” diet is healthy for you. In taking a look at the testimonials featured on the site itself, you will come across a list of medical professionals and their comments on the program. If I can offer you any advice it would be to observe the backgrounds of these doctors and understand that their title does not automatically give them credibility to deem a program such as this, successful or not. Doctors from avenues of family practice all the way to a spinal surgeon may give the program a thumbs up, but they are not certified nutritionists or dietitians, therefore their word is just as reliable in this field as your very own.

    Aside from the absence of peer-reviewed articles and scientific backing on this program, the developers’ credentials themselves are questionable. As I mentioned earlier, both Melissa and Dallas Hartwig have a title as certified sports nutritionists. This is closer to what we are looking for when looking for credibility, but the certification has absolutely no meaning if we are not informed on where they allegedly achieved these certifications. Melissa Hartwig who is the head of Whole30 has her CISSN. This is a credential from the International Society of Sports Nutrition that can be obtained online by anyone looking to pursue expertise and give advice in sports exercise and nutrition (you can have a 4 year degree in a completely different subject and still be eligible). If you are anything like me, you are probably confused as to why this knowledge of sports medicine is so pertinent to a diet plan that is primarily focused on the foods you consume (because it is not relevant)… As a matter of fact, exercise does not even have a role in the Whole30 program. All in all, such certifications may be valid but they do not give this program the rational foundation and scientific backing that it should have.

    Is Whole30 Effective?

    Naturally, if you begin to eliminate foods that contain unhealthy ingredients for a consecutive 30 days, your body will begin to shed pounds. You will lose weight as your body undergoes the cleansing process because you are forbidden to consume any foods that may cause the slightest effect on your body and it’s natural processes. But is it really necessary to remove an overwhelming amount of food categories (both healthy and unhealthy) to shed pounds?

    This program has been around for about 7 years now (amongst several similar programs) and there has yet to be a scientific study done that proves elimination diets to be effective. Don’t you think that if there was a sufficient amount of help rather than harm in participating in a routine like this we would have proven evidence?

    Clients that have tried this program and claim that it works may have found it effective due to the initial weight loss from the shock of being so restrictive and abruptly altering your eating habits. However, this effectiveness is very temporary and not even guaranteed.

    What are Whole30 Side Effects?

    In doing my research, there are definitely some high risk side effects that arise when you extract so many types of foods from your normal diet at one given time. The common side effects include fatigue and headaches as your body adjusts, but more importantly the lasting damage an elimination diet can create is what you do not want to face. A customer wrote a personal message to the “Dear Melissa” board that reads:

    “Now, however, I’m struggling with re-entry. It feels like every time I try a non-Whole30 food, I get bad stomach pain—the only food that hasn’t done this is rice. Kristin, Westchester, PA .

    This disadvantage is indeed a very daunting side effect. Unlike trying a food again for the first time in a while and having a weird reaction, developing an entire food group intolerance is at risk. As certified nutritionist, Keri Glassman, shares “I like people to be strict for four to seven days to give them a jump-start and reset the behaviors…But 30 days is a long time and can be very restrictive, especially if you have to start over.” That being said, why would you challenge yourself with such a concentrated diet for an entire thirty days to not even be certain that you will not endure more harm than help in the end?

    Whole30 Support

    for testimonials, having the Hartwigs come speak at an event, media inquiries, etc. However, if you are an individual seeking more information, they do not recommend that you use this address for your questions regarding the program because they get a large number of emails and may not return the personal inquiries in a timely manner (hey, at least they warn you). You click on the link that reads, “I need support during my Whole30” and they send you directly to a Google search engine (not a fan of this initial approach, it seems lazy). The next direction they send you in is to the forum in which there are moderators and a community of participants that raise concerns. If you do not find what you are looking for there, they recommend seeking support are their social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Whole30 is said to be a nutritional “reset” program to assist you in cutting out any bad or toxic foods and start anew. After in-depth research I have come to the conclusion that this program is too risky. Eliminating main food groups including any kind of sugar or artificial sugar, alcohol of any kind, grains, legumes, dairy, etc. for such an extensive period of time can be extremely harmful. Not only is it very challenging and impractical, but the minute you indulge in a bite of something that must be avoided or is not Whole30 approved, you must start all over or you will not reap the benefits this program claims to provide. After taking a closer look at the credentials and the lack of proven scientific studies behind the foundation of this program, it does not suffice. If you are looking to replenish your body, have youthful complexion and energy, rid your body of bloating, and ultimately kiss those unwanted pounds goodbye, I suggest you look into another program.

    Oxycise! Diet Review

    Oxycise! is a diet program that claims that all it takes is following their breathing exercises to lose weight. Is controlling your breathing really the key to weight loss?

    Oxycise review

    Review overview

    Summary

    Oxycise! is a breathing exercise program that claims to help you lose weight and keep it off for the rest of your life.

    Pros

    • No Added Supplements
    • No Equipment Necessary
    • Several Testimonials

    Cons

    • Does Not Take Into Account Proper Nutrition
    • Glorified Stretching Guide
    • Actual Scientific Resources are Not Disclosed
    • Outdated Info

    Oxycise! was created by a woman by the name of Jill Johnson. A woman that supposedly has a passion for assisting men and other women in their weight loss journeys, because she says she went through this very process herself. After several years of struggling with her weight fluctuation, keeping it off, and the various diet fads, she claims to have researched and developed the perfect solution. Unlike most diets, this program does not include any sort of supplements or intense workouts. Oxycise!, when it all comes down to it, is simply a breathing technique. If you are anything like me, you are probably extremely skeptical of this product. If it truly was as easy as following a certain breathing technique to make a life-changing alteration to your weight, why would the thousands upon thousands of weight loss products on the market even be a question?

    Oxycise! is a program that can be completely carried out for free in the comfort of your own home. According to the website, “Oxycise! is a simple, powerful diaphragmatic breathing technique combined with flexing and contracting of all muscle groups”. However, as we know everything has a price! In order to follow the “proper” breathing technique there is a set of DVD’s, Book, and a CD available for purchase for $39.95 (at an introductory discount), when usually it costs just under $60. The fact that this process is said to help you lose weight with something as natural and simplistic as oxygen, seems to good to be true.

    Oxycise! Claims

    There are several claims made by the founder, Jill Johnson, herself. The first claim made is “you will learn exactly what to do to reach a healthy weight and maintain it for life”. (Oxycise.com) The words “for life” are quite a promise. Considering the fact that this program is based on breathing techniques, is it worth a whole $60 to $90 dollars to learn how to supposedly breathe yourself skinny?

    Another claim made is that “the inches fall off steadily and healthily in only 15 minutes a day with the power of oxygen.”(Oxycise.com) This claim is one that I found astounding. The “inches fall off steadily” part of the claim is pretty interesting since chances are if you are already in great shape (as many of the athlete testimonials prove), inches will not just be falling off. Is it really so that if you only have 5 pounds to lose, this exercise will help you to achieve just that? Same goes for if you have 50 pounds to lose? Following the amount of weight lost, the time seems pretty quick. It claims you will see a difference by just taking part in these techniques for 15 minutes a day. These claims are both unrealistic, and not easy to believe.

    “With Oxycise! you can get in shape without changing the way you eat.”(Oxycise.com) Unlike the last two claims that may have seemed a little farfetched at first, this claim is most definitely faulty. It is common knowledge that nutrition most definitely plays a role in weight gain and even further, health. If these breathing techniques are all that they are said to be, they still cannot disregard that fact that the foods you consume affect your shape and health.

    Does Oxycise! Have Scientific Backing?

    Well, right off the bat there is a line repeated on the homepage of the company website that reads “fat oxidizes into carbon dioxide”, hence the name Oxycise! The oxidation process is a natural process that occurs through the simple act of breathing. In taking deeps breaths and controlling your muscles, the fat is said to be released from your body in the form of carbon dioxide. After making such a statement, I was curious as to the scientific research that was noted to give it support. It turns out that there are several explanations featured on the website in the FAQ sections and such. Further, there are links and scientific findings from different Universities to back the claims that can be found on the “articles” webpage. 

    Is Oxycise! Effective?

    At least this program has been around long enough to give us a sufficient amount of reviews and feedback. With positive feedback on the results of this product, it seems as though it may be effective to a certain extent. However, there were quite a few critical reviews about how outdated it was and that it was essentially a glorified yoga instruction. One even went to say she experienced gaining weight.

    “ …If you want the dvd for the stretches it is wonderful, I highly recommend it for the stretches alone. In the 2 weeks I did the breathing exercises with stretches my waist increased 1.5 inches and in everything else went up 1 inch. I wasn't feasting on food. I was shocked, I think it's just the breathing technique does not work for me. I'm doing the breathing properly. I was hoping to have a different Outcome.” –Amazon Customer

    Along with the critical reviews, there were positive reviews on the actual website itself. Whether they be for marketing use or honest testimonials, I do not want to fail to mention that they were indeed present.

    “… I started a challenge for January 2016 and we are 7 days in….I've lost 3″ and 2.4lbs in a week… “ –Cindy Hansen, Oxycise! Consumer

    Keep in mind that many of the reviews pertained to the breathing techniques and introductory guides, but did not necessarily take into account the importance of eating well. Although a relatively healthy diet is promoted, it is not “required” by this program. Taking long-term effects into consideration, nutrition is the ultimate foundation for your body. No matter how effective the breathing and muscle movements may be, a balanced diet is vital to success in both weight loss and health itself.

    What are Oxycise! Side Effects?

    Considering the fact that this is a completely natural process, there are not any noted side effects. Keep in mind that this is a program to be followed for 15 minutes a day and is meant to eventually just become a part of your daily routine. We all are well aware the importance of breathing and how important it is for all of our internal organs, tissues, and blood cells to receive oxygen. That being said, there is not much negative that comes with paying an extra 15 minutes of attention a day to your breathing. As long as you take deep breaths and do not cause a shortage, you should be not come across any damage. Although this is important, it does not mean that spending this chunk of money to learn breathing exercises is guaranteed to have you lose weight or even show you something you don’t already do. 

    Oxycise! Support

    Oxycise! offers a phone number- 1(800) OXYCISE- that can be reached at any point Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. MST. They provide you with a support address: [email protected], as well as a “Contact Us” form in which you can fill out your info and submit an inquiry.

    There is a newsletter, media room, creative outlet, ambassador program, and Facebook page for Oxycise! customers to interact with. This provides the individual with different platforms to share their experiences with the product and possibly inspire others in the community.

    In the case that you are not content with your purchase, you are entitled to a full refund. In order to receive the refund (not including shipping and handling costs), you must return the product within 30 days of making the purchase.

    Bottom Line

    Oxycise! Is a natural weight loss program in which fat is supposedly released in the form of carbon dioxide simply through the “proper” breathing techniques that are taught in this Oxycise! program. This program claims to provide you with guides and tools to train yourself to take deep breaths and activate the proper muscle function to burn fat and shed unwanted pounds. Overall, they do provide information about the product development, research and findings, effectiveness, and creating customer engagement through several avenues of support which is something that many products on the market fail to do. Keep in mind that although this program hits a lot of the spots, it fails to require a balanced diet and may just be a glorified series of yoga stretches that is essentially not worth paying all of that money for. If you are looking to be guaranteed weight loss and energy I would recommend that you instead seek a program that provides you with all of the aspects necessary for success including a balanced diet and exercise routine.

    1.7 10 Very bad!

    The Skinny Bitch Diet is a book that was written by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin. Rory Freedman was a former modeling agent and Kim Barnouin was a former model herself. These two collaborated on a book, which later became a number of books regarding nutrition and health. This is not your usual rule-book and diet plan. Through the use of colorful language and girly sass, these two authors paint a vivid picture of the harms of the meat industry and persuade readers to live a vegan lifestyle. According to the author’s message, it takes living a vegan lifestyle to lose weight. Is veganism really the healthiest for you? Oftentimes vegans develop deficiencies in important nutrients such as Vitamin B12. When you cut out foods that naturally provide your body with the proper nutrients it is easy to struggle. We all are well aware, that there are several other ways to lose weight than just following a strict vegan diet.

    This conversational text is often mistaken as a diet book. Realistically this book goes more along the lines of a conversational book written to inform readers of the harm that they are facing when indulging in certain foods and a list of foods and products that should be avoided. If you think you can handle the vulgarity of the language and vegan promoting nutrition, this book is available for purchase starting at about $9.99 on tape to about $17.95 in a hardcover. However, if you are looking for a diet plan to follow, this is not it.

    Skinny Bitch Claims

    This book claims to be A No-Nonsense, Tough-Love Guide for Savvy Girls Who Want to Stop Eating Crap and Start Looking Fabulous” (Skinny Bitch cover). The issue with this book does not so much seem to be with the diet itself, but instead with the approach. As far as the “diet” and nutrition goes, the book pretty much just promotes a vegan diet. With a vulgar language twist, they ban eating meat, dairy, alcohol, caffeine, white flour, sugar, and artificial flavors. That being said your energy should come from complex carbohydrates like potatoes and whole-wheat pasta.

    If you are looking into a vegan diet and want some comedic relief (depending on how easily you get offended) then this might be worth the read, however if you are looking to make a change in lifestyle and lose weight this should definitely not be your go to. They offer some information about nutrition but there is no plan to follow for exercise or any other type of programs involved. Primarily this book makes negative claims about the way foods are processed and the harm in eating meat and supporting the meat industry. Sure, I can get behind that…

    Does Skinny Bitch Have Scientific Backing?

    There is not any scientific background when it comes to the authors of this book. They have personal experience to share and research that they cite throughout the book, but only unauthorized scientific credibility themselves.

    Kim Barnouin, one of the co-authors, attended a non-accredited Medical University by the name of Clayton College of Natural Health. This University has not been accredited therefore it is considered a “diploma mill” or school in which one pays a fee for a course and receives a diploma. In fact, Clayton was an online college that was closed down in 2010. So how exactly does this suffice as trustworthy nutritional background? It doesn’t.

    Throughout the book customers have mentioned that there are citations for research, but many were left out of the final bibliography. This actually was a major complaint amongst some of the readers. That being said, research is only considered credible when there are scientific peer reviewed articles or citations of the sort. If there is information being mentioned that is left out of the bibliography one has no choice but to believe that it was made up. We are looking for the facts, this is our body and future health that we are talking about. There is no room for hearsay and people trying to recruit you onto the vegan bandwagon.

    Is the Skinny Bitch Method Effective?

    Ultimately what this book is providing is all the reasons as to why one should be vegan. There are several differences in the ways our bodies process such foods and a plant-based diet (which is primarily what it means to be vegan) is much simpler and lower in calories, leading to alterations in digestion and in turn the possibility of shedding some pounds. Although this is definitely not always the case. Just because the foods allowed on the diet are primarily lower in fat, the caloric intake and portion sizes are what make the difference when it comes to the nutrition aspect of weight loss. The hard truth is that if you do not follow a strict meal plan or nutrition program, a solid transition to a vegan lifestyle will be nearly impossible. You would be surprised how prevalent dairy products are in normal everyday meals. Just to give you an example, butter is not considered a vegan product therefore it would be banned if you were following the lifestyle. Good luck going out to eat at a restaurant and them not cooking some part of your meal with butter. Obviously, for vegans that have committed themselves to this lifestyle for the sake of animals and other passionate reasons for years on end, they are well aware of the fact that they need to avoid such things. On the other hand someone like you that is unfamiliar is going to need a strict breakdown and program to follow to make the transition and avoid slip ups. In our case, we are looking for a concrete resolution to lose weight and keep it off and this book just does not provide any of the proper elements.

    Another issue with the effectiveness of this book is the approach. This book does not even necessarily promote the correlation between a vegan lifestyles and weight loss, but instead all the issues with consuming foods that do not fall under a vegan diet. So if it is not even guaranteed, what are we doing reading a book like this as a tool to kick-start our weight loss?

    What Are Skinny Bitch Diet Side Effects?

    Although this book should not be considered a diet, it does practically adhere to a vegan lifestyle. There are indeed unsaid side effects to adopting a vegan diet seeing as how it works similar to the elimination diet. This is the case for two reasons.

    The first being that there is a good chance you develop intolerance to such foods if you cut them out of your diet for a long period of time. The other reason is that it can be very difficult to take part in if you are not totally convinced that you do not want to consume meat or dairy products for a very long time. If you adopt these habits it normally has a short-term effect because you will crave the categories that you have eliminated and break the entire cycle. Without a breakdown of a nutritional program included? You will not even know where to turn to. This is an issue when it comes to making such a change. You need directions and options to follow. Believe me, we all are so motivated at the start of dieting and so eager to drop the pounds but that only lasts for so long until you need something to fall back on. The Skinny Bitch Diet text does not provide those tools for you.

    Skinny Bitch Support

    Since this is a book there is no customer support. There are no follow-up websites in which you can contact the authors directly for support. The only interaction we have with the authors can be found in personal interviews of the authors. There is not any consultations or contact information given to help you carry out your newly adopted lifestyle. However, there is a Facebook and Twitter for followers to find out info on what is latest in the Vegan world, etc.

    As far as money back guarantee and return policies, those vary depending on where you purchase the book.

    Bottom Line

    Skinny Bitch is a vegan-biased book that raises awareness about the meat industry and the benefits of becoming a part of the vegan lifestyle. This book is not intended to be a diet book or program for weight loss. It emphasizes the negatives of the meat industry and harms in consuming animal products, alcohol, etc. while pitching the benefits to only taking part in a plant based diet. One of the benefits that is mentioned is that you may lose some weight, but that is where the confusion lies. If you are concerned about weight loss and making a change to your eating and exercise habits, this is not even a diet program by any means. With primarily negative reviews, the sassy and vulgar language of the text is written as a book for comedic relief. This book aims to expose the meat industry and uses a hook like “skinny bitch” to draw readers in that are looking to shed some weight. At the end of the day, for most of us women this is a great way to get our attention. Who is not always looking for ways to lose a little extra? Smart on their part. That being said, for an actual diet that will have you feeling youthful, energized, balance emotions, and shed unwanted pounds of course, we suggest you look somewhere else.

    The Perfect Health Diet Review

    The Perfect Health Diet book claims that through years of research they were able to develop the exact diet that we must follow for supposedly the best health and weight loss. Is this book really supposed to provide the exact diet to fit each and every reader?

    The Perfect Health Diet Review

    Review overview

    Summary

    The Perfect Health Diet is a book that claims to provide you with a detailed discussion of the benefits and disadvantages of consuming certain foods and supposedly the proper diet to follow.

    Pros

    • Credible Authors
    • Affordable

    Cons

    • Very Similar to Paleo Diet
    • Negative Side Effects
    • No Money-Back Guarantee

    Ratings in depth

    3.4 10 Bad

    The Perfect Health Diet is a book written by husband and wife, Paul and Shou-Ching Jaminet. This couple has a qualified scientific background, their Ph.D.s, and a passion for diets and health. They began their research on the impacts of different food groups on diseases, immunity, and health. Their research covered everything from how we contract certain diseases to the potential health benefits obtained through the consumption of certain foods or lack thereof.

    This book is available for purchase online on several different websites. Amazon, being among the most popular of the sites, has the paperback version priced at $11.68 and the hardcover for $19.04. This reasonably priced guide was published in December of 2013. Ultimately, their goal in creating this Perfect Health Diet book was to give the reader tools to achieve optimal health, whether they suffer from disease or not.

    As far as the descriptive diet that they recommend, it is very similar to the well-known paleo diet. One of the minor differences is that in the Perfect Health Diet you are allowed to consume minimal simple starches such as white rice and potatoes, whereas starches are banned in the paleo diet. For those of you that are not familiar with the Paleolithic or “paleo” Diet, it is a restrictive diet in which starches, grains, legumes, sugars, and unhealthy fats (ex. vegetable oil) are not permitted.

    The Perfect Health Claims

    As printed on the front cover of the book, the Perfect Health Diet claims to teach you how to “Regain Health and Lose Weight by Eating the Way You Were Meant to Eat”. This claim seems plausible, seeing as how we should all be well aware of the importance of nutrition and healthy eating habits for our well-being. However, after looking into the feedback from readers and the content of the book itself, their “way we are meant to eat” statement definitely does not apply to everyone. 

    Does The Perfect Health Have Scientific Backing?

    Considering both authors that collaborated to create this Perfect Health Diet are scientists as well, I would consider their research and findings to be sufficient forms of scientific backing. According to a customer review on Amazon, the information provided in the text was very credible.

    The Perfect Health Diet is an extremely well referenced and supported diet book. I have read maybe fifty health and nutrition books, many in the “low carb”, “paleo”, “traditional eating” and “whole foods” categories. This book is the best that I have read.”- Eckthelion, an Amazon Customer

    When research has been carried out for as long as 7 years, which the Jaminet’s claim to have spent on the research for this text, the evidence and conclusions made are usually considered to be true. Although, this is not necessarily always the case. According to a critical Amazon customer review, there were a few instances in the book in which the authors did not live up to their expectations in the least.

    Some of the misinformation is this book is almost unbelievable, given that both authors are ostensibly educated and have been researching diet extensively for years. “ –Cynthia L., an Amazon Customer

    Is The Perfect Health Effective?

    Although there is a pretty sufficient amount of scientific backing as to the diseases and the role of food discussed in the book, whether or not this diet is the “perfect” diet is still very much in question.

    What the recommended diet comes down to is one that is high in protein and low in carbohydrates. While this may be healthy for some, it is definitely not healthy for absolutely all. Aside from the food groups fitting “perfect” for everyone (or not), the effectiveness is questionable when you consider how difficult it is for many to just jump right into a diet of this sort. Going in cold-turkey can sometimes be rallied and motivated, but it gets tough when the cravings begin to creep in and you attempt to live a lifestyle of only these food groups for long periods of time. That being said, as far as this program being effective for the reader to achieve what they really are aiming to is nowhere near guaranteed.

    What are The Perfect Health Side Effects?

    The negative side effects recorded had to do with people that tried re-introducing certain food groups after completely eliminating them from their diet. Even though this is not referred to as an elimination diet, it is important to keep your body balanced. The balance helps to ensure that the proper bacteria stays where it belongs and gives strength to your immune system. If you follow a restrictive diet for a few weeks and really cut back on food groups (especially carbohydrates), chances are the side effects are going to be rough.

    Whether you develop intolerance and are irritated by the foods from the point of eliminating them on, or you begin to notice a fluctuation in weight and energy levels, you will suffer.

    The Perfect Health Support

    The Perfect Health Diet website offers different ways for readers to stay involved and active in their commitment to the new lifestyle. One way is to sign up for the “Perfect Health Newsletter.” This newsletter is e-mailed to its recipients along with a complimentary e-book that is granted upon signing up for the newsletter.

    The Perfect Health Diet is present on several social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc. Besides contacting the Perfect Health representatives on social media, there are a few e-mails provided such as [email protected], as well as a few different places to post comments and concerns throughout the website.

    The next option they provide on their website is the “Perfect Health Retreat”. This retreat really drives home the support that this couple hopes to achieve in empowering their readers. They feature several videos of past customers that have attended this retreat along with their stories and experiences on the website. This is a retreat in which participants have the opportunity to really take all that they have gathered from the book to the next level. Attendees have the opportunity to further their knowledge in a daily educational program, proper cooking instruction classes, personal health coaching, movement classes three times a day, evening relaxation classes, and free time to enjoy the nearby ocean. Not sure how I feel about this, it seems like an interesting option and I have yet to see it offered with any of the other diet programs out there.

    Bottom Line

    The Perfect Health Diet is a book created to help inform individuals of supposedly the proper diet to achieve weight loss and optimal health. Although this diet seemed well-researched and credible upon first glance (seeing as how it was written by scientists with a passion for health and diets), it was not held in such a high regard after all. This is not to say that it is not ideal for some, but it is most definitely not the “perfect” option for all. There may have been some very qualified scientific research conducted in the making of this book, but as for the diet plan, it was just not fitting. If the book was geared towards diseases, foods, and immunity primarily then I may have had a different opinion. As far as a weight loss program, we suggest that you not spend your time reading this book and instead continue to look into other options that may be more fitting.

    Pritikin Principle Diet Review

    The Pritikin Principle Diet claims to have all the resources to assist you in weight loss from their expensive starter pack to an entire overnight facility. Will taking part in such a complex program be worth your time and money?

    Pritikin Principle Diet

    The Pritikin Principle Diet was created by Nathan Pritikin. According to his story, he traveled around the world to different cultures in which heart conditions were not so prevalent to gather his findings. This was supposedly sparked by his personal suffering from a heart attack when he was in his 40’s. He claims that by following a diet that is low in fat and protein, while high in fiber, people will not face such risks of heart disease.

    The Pritikin Principle Starter Pack is sold for $349.95 at a “special” price when supposedly the regular price is $100 dollars more.  This package consists of one 30 minute over the phone consultation, one week of frozen meals, a one-year online Pritikin membership, and a book. To put this into perspective, by simply following this frozen dinner meal plan and reading a book within a week you are not going to see the results you were hoping for. Therefore, $350 dollars is an extremely steep price for far from guaranteed results.  After a week, you will then only have access to your online membership. Once a member you have access to recipes, purchasing weeklong meal plans at a price of  $225, a weight loss tracker, and a patient portal. What makes this diet program anywhere worth that expensive price?

    This original diet was created a while back, around the year 1970. Since then, Nathan’s son has taken over and the diet has been altered. Although this diet was originally created in hopes of lowering chances of disease, it now claims to aid in weight loss. As time has passed and there have been numerous other studies on nutrition and how our body functions, this diet gets a rap for being old news and some of the original findings do not comply with the findings about healthy diets today.

    Pritikin Principle Claims

    Adapting to a lifestyle of eating foods that are low in fat and protein, while high in fiber can be quite a challenge. Not only to break habits, but on our energy levels as well. Now that the Pritikin Principle has loosened the reigns and allows nuts and seeds, the task is not as immense but still very difficult. So what makes it worth it?

    The Pritikin Principle claims to be one of the healthiest diets on the market. It is more so geared towards alleviating and preventing disease rather than the weight loss factor. When Nathan Pritikin originally created this diet, he claims his intentions were as follows.

    “All I’m to do is wipe out heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, and obesity” – (Nathan Pritikin, Founder).

    In developing this program what he intended to achieve, in turn is what the claims hold for those participating in the Pritikin Principle Diet. Specifically, claims include; reducing triglycerides, reducing bad cholesterol, chronic inflammation, weight loss, etc. Although this is what the goal may have been, in doing some further research it does not seem as though these claims are really met in this program.

    Does Pritikin Principle Have Scientific Backing?

    Following the several claims made, there is indeed some extent of scientific backing for each of these claims. This Pritikin Principle Diet has been featured in multiple medical journals and studied by many recognized research institutions. Some of these institutions include UCLA, Harvard, and Stanford.

    As part of the research, I found that some of the guidelines that this diet sets are actually faulty. For example, what we know about the importance of the proper fat in our diets from several studies that have been conducted in recent years. Nowadays, the “good fats” such as fatty omega 3’s found in salmon, and fats from avocados and nuts, are critical for proper brain function or feeling full for a sufficient period of time. Therefore the Pritikin Principle Diet that calls for a low fat diet is actually not the best for you.

    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.

    Is Pritikin Principle Effective?

    The Pritikin Principle Diet has extended from a published book, into a diet program with frozen meals and online membership, and later into a full fledge center. The Pritikin longevity center claims to be a location in which you can enroll and stay at for a period of time and that is where they guarantee the most results. However, if you do not have the time or money to enroll in a full on stay at a diet location, the at home program is your only option. If you are thinking that reading a book within a week and eating the frozen meals they send you with this program is enough to reach the results that they claim, you may want to reconsider. What if you have any allergies to the only food options they send you? What if you don’t see any significant changes in the first week and are forced to spend another $225 to get the meal plan for the next week?  There are hardly any testimonials shown on the website, but in their defense they do provide scientific proof which does not make me automatically count out the effectiveness. 

    What are Pritikin Principle Side Effects?

    As science has improved over the years, since the original Pritikin Principle Diet was developed there are definite some faults with the strict diet. As far as eating healthy and exercise, if everything is done in proper balance, there should be minimal side effects.

    The issue lies with the lack of fats and protein that the diet calls for. With slight changes to the guidelines in recent years, there is more animal protein and fat allowed in the plan, but still needs to be reconsidered. The original diet excluded most fats and this can have a negative side effect on our brain functions and mental conditions such as depression. In today’s day and age there have been several discoveries made regarding the benefits of animal protein, general protein, and “good fats”. By limiting the intake of such nutrients our bodies may suffer the side effects rather than reap the benefits.

    Pritikin Principle Support

    The Pritikin Principle Diet is originally distributed in the form of a book. It takes a lot of self-discipline to achieve the benefits and follow the diet properly. The Pritikin Principle offers a newsletter, email form for inquiries, and phone number (888) 254-1462. These forms of support (besides the newsletter) are all geared towards making a reservation for a stay at their facility or inquiries regarding the in-house rehabilitation programs. However, they do not specify any one on one support for the at home program or membership besides the initial 30 minute consultation upon signing up. This leaves the consumer primarily on their own if one is not interested in going through with the full on overnight stay. That being said, there is also not any Money-Back Guarantee mentioned on the website. 

    Bottom Line

    The Pritikin Principle Diet was originally developed in the 70’s in the form of a book and has evolved into an at home weeklong program, online membership, or overnight stay program.  Ultimately, this diet is very involved and far more complex than just following the steps to make some changes and achieve optimal health and weight loss. Although there is a large amount of scientific backing for this diet, it is research that can be done on your own and may not necessarily require the full on $350 weeklong program or stay at the Pritikin facility that they promote. If you are looking to lose weight, keep it off, and start a new lifestyle I would suggest that you save the money and find a program that will no doubt give you what you are looking to achieve.

    Top 5 Natural Food Appetite Suppressants

    When your stomach seems like a bottomless pit and absolutely nothing seems to be filling you up, you can count on these foods to naturally suppress your appetite!

    Do you ever feel like you have been eating so much food and nothing seems to keep you full? That is very common when you eat foods that are poor for your body or are just lack the proper nutrients to send the messages to your brain that your body is no longer in need of consuming food. In order to avoid that situation I have a quick list of foods for you to  make as your “go-to” rather than eating way more than needed. 

    The List

    • Oatmeal 

    Oatmeal is first up on the list because naturally the amount of fiber that it contains works in a way that it keeps you full for hours after eating it. As long as you don’t doctor it up with a bunch of sugar or anything unhealthy, you will be amazed at how it starts of your day with a satisfied stomach and is the perfect breakfast food!

    • Apples 

    Apples are a fruit that are rich in fiber as well as pectin, which assist your body in knowing when it is full. The natural sweetness that comes from the glucose makes for a great sweet tooth killer, while the glucose itself will help to boost your energy!

    • Nuts 

    Nuts are not only a great snack to get you through that afternoon stretch, but they are a fantastic source of protein and fiber. Almonds and walnuts in particular may seem like they have a higher calorie count, but just a couple handfuls will get you the antioxidants, magnesium, and protein to hold you over for a while.

    • Salmon 

    Salmon is a great way to have a low calorie meal and reap several benefits at the same time. It is a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which is an important nutrient for your body (and is one of the only important ones that is not produced naturally and can only come from external factors). These nutrients in turn increase a hormone called leptin in your body, which is highly recognized for its ability to suppress your appetite.

    • Avocado 

    Avocados, similar to nuts, are a great source of good fats! According to a Loma Linda University study, “Researchers found that participants who added half of a fresh avocado to their lunch reported a significantly decreased desire to eat by 40 percent over a three-hour period”. That being said, this super food is not only delicious but a proven natural way to keep your appetite suppressed!

     Bottom Line

    A great rule of thumb to keep in mind when looking for foods that will naturally suppress your appetite is to find foods that are high in fiber! Also, do not think that you will eat these foods and instantly not feel hungry. Give your body at least a 30 minute window for everything to begin processing and sending the right messages, then you can be the judge of whether you are hungry for more or that your appetite has been suppressed as planned.
