PS1000 Diet Review

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

PS1000 was founded in 2009 and is based out of Boise, Idaho. This company promotes healthy weight loss at a sustainable rate, and they don’t misguide you with faulty promises, which is one thing I like about the business so far. They sell a bottle of all natural supplement drops, which aid in helping one reduce body fat, optimize metabolism, increase energy, improve physical and mental performance, and more. While the website looks clean and put together, their before and after pictures are hard to look at, as they are split down the middle in a rather confusing way.

PS1000 offers a 180-day money back guarantee, which takes the risk away from the customer, which is nice to read. They do not claim to be a quick fix to your weight loss solution, but rather they promote a healthy way to get your weight under control with a three phase program. Based on the product and the companies claims on the website, I am interested to take a deeper dive into the nuts and bolts of this diet product as a whole.

Ingredients in the PS1000 Supplement:

  • Maca (Promotes Energy)*
  • Glucomannan (Reduces absorption of carbohydrates)*
  • Rhodiola (Physical and mental performance)*
  • Arginine (Aids in proper muscle mass)*
  • Beta-Alanine (Increases endurance)*
  • African Mango (Controls Appetite)*
  • Glutamine (Helps build and maintain muscle tissue)*
  • Glycine (Slows muscle degeneration)*
  • Valine (Muscle metabolism coordination)*
  • Ornithine (Promotes a healthy metabolism)*
  • Tyrosine (Regulate mood, and stabilizes metabolism)*
  • Serine (Helps maintain healthy immune system)*
  • Glutamic (Helps regulate metabolism of sugar and fats)*
  • Methyl B-12 (Vague description on the website, does not make it seem vital to weight loss.)*
  • Vitamin B-6 (This ingredient does not seem detrimental to weight loss)*
  • Potassium (Aids in the proper functioning of heart, kidney, liver etc.)*
  • Vitamin E (vague description on the site for its uses)*
  • Niacin (Vitamin B-3) (Helps produce hormones beneficial to the body, and aids in healthy blood circulation)*

Phase 1:

This phase lasts up to 90 days. During phase 1 they encourage clean eating, and supplementation with their drops. Caloric restrictions are near 1,000 calories a day to ensure unhealthy and fattening foods are taken out.

Phase 2:

This is the maintenance phase, and is meant to last up to 21 days. During this phase you are to set a healthy weight goal to try and stay near.

Phase 3:

This is the continuation phase, and you continue down the road of your new healthy lifestyle. Slowly you will be introducing back sugars and starches while eating a sustainable number of calories based off of your body weight.

PS1000 Claims

As mentioned earlier, PS1000 claims that their drops will help you lose weight, reduce body fat, enhance memory, optimize metabolism, increase energy, maintain healthy immune system, improve physical and mental performance, enhance mood, strengthen the nervous system, reduce fatigue, and control appetite.

They claim that if you commit yourself to this program, you will see results.

They also claim that their product is not a quick diet fix, and that it is more of a process of incorporating healthy foods along with their diet drops. Finally, they quote on their website that all of the products in their supplement drops are proven to aid in weight loss and that they are safe and effective to use.

Does PS1000 Have Scientific Backing?

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

Does PS1000 Work?

When looking into outside sources of consumer reviews of PS1000, (because the websites of the actual products always seem one sided) they got good reviews as a whole. I had to double-check this information, because you do not normally find this often with diet companies. On Amazon alone there was an 85% 5 star rating, and 0 % 1 star reviews which I have never personally seen before. Merchants like Amazon offer their consumers to leave reviews no matter if they are good or bad. The overall consensus is that the program really promoted weight loss the healthy way, and that they saw long term positive results from PS1000.

DoesPS1000 Have Side Effects?

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

PS1000 Support

When calling into the PS1000 line, my call was answered and my questions were too. There are three different packages to buy: The first comes with one bottle of PS1000, a program guide, recipe guides, and support group access for $109.00 (no recurring fees). The second program is all the same, but you will get two bottles of PS1000 for $159.00. The third program is the same, but you will receive 3 bottles of PS1000 along with a free B-Complex supplement for $195.00. Their money back offer is solid, as you can return it opened and completely used up to 180 days.

The Bottom Line

I was skeptical at first, because many times a company with diet drops always seems to push just the success of the drops. With PS1000, they offer a natural supplement in their drops along with a healthy eating plan to help the person on the program incorporate positive eating habits for life. Their support was great, and their outside reviews were also positive. Overall this company has positive reviews, and an honest business model. With their risk free money back guarantee it may be something worth checking out!

  1. Would like more info on this diet . Not clear about what to eat or what supplements are included . I have hypothyroidism so I am concerned about they supplements. Would appreciate info .

  2. OMG I have started 3 weeks ago. The first week was just getting used to it and getting off sugar, I cheated a few times but it was because I forgot my food and snacks. So last week I was prepared and did not cheat and boy as it worth it. I started at 248 and week later am at 238. Yeah. And if I can do it anyone can-celebrating my victory.

  3. So you know how people say “oh, I am too old, this will never work for me…”?This was me 2 months ago when my daughter told me about PS1000 program. She did however convince me to try it. And boy what a journey it has been! I am 35 pounds down with only 12 more to go. The people in the support group are truly inspiring and have picked me up many times when I did not have the will to continue and was about to revert back to my “I am too old” story line. I not have only lost the weight but got the confidence that even at 67 years old i CAN do anything I set my mind to do.

  4. I blog frequently and I really appreciate your information. This great article has really peaked my
    interest. I will book mark your site and keep checking for new
    information about once a week. I subscribed to your Feed as well.

  5. As I woke up this morning I am 28 days into this program and I am down 19.5 pounds. It shocks even me to say that. I feel amazing and anyone who knows me is surprised at how much more alive I am. I am no longer lounging on my couch afterwork. I actaully have the desire to go work in my garden or walk my dogs, I now walk them more than 2 miles every evening!

  6. Hello — been at this 12 days. Have lost a total of 7 pounds. I am not feeling that I am being that successful. Am I not working out enough? I walk an hour a day. Any suggestions?

  7. 64 days gone and I am officially 20 lbs lighter. That’s as if I was carrying 2 of these 10lbs bags of flour around all day long! No wonder why I have so much more energy & why I’m finding it easier to do certain things!

  8. Are the supplements like the ones on the Nutrimost program?I read that the calorie intake on PS1000 is 1000 calories a day, while Nutrimost was 500. I was on that program and lost 80 pounds six months. I never made it to the final phase because I had knee surgery. Actually, I had my left knee replaced twice in the same year. Sadly, I have gained 100 pounds back. It was impossible to control my appetite without the supplements. (A friend completed the Nutrimost program and has gained more that 30 pounds back. Maybe, that program doesn’t work.) Clearly, I haven’t been not moving as much since my knee has had so much trauma. I want so much to be healthy again. I really want to be able to maintain a healthy weight. I can’t afford to throw more money toward an empty goal.

    • Thank you for sharing your story!
      We are not familiar with Nutrimost supplements so I would recommend reaching out to PS1000 directly. Their contact information is available in the review above.

    • Hi Claude, I would suggest reaching out to your primary care physician or PS1000 program support directly.

  9. I’m considering this vs. Dr. Bernstein’s weight loss program…. I clearly can see the price difference, but none the less both a very low caloric intake daily meal plan…. I have never heard of PS1000 before today just using the internet search engine, but personally know people who have done Dr. Bernstein’s and been successful… why should I order this product?

    • Hi Tanya, you just need to decide what you are looking for and decide which program you could see yourself doing for the rest of your life. PS1000 is a healthy approach to food and in general has good guidelines to follow for life without feeling deprived. Good luck and please do come back to let us know which one you chose and how it is working for you.

  10. The testimonials are encouraging but how is the PS 1000 different from South Beach other than the drops? I’ve been eating clean (following phase 1 of the south beach diet), exercising very regularly and am down 15 pounds in 2 months. I feel much better, but it has not always been easy.
    My question is what benefit would the ps 1000 be over clean eating diets such as the south beach? I’m willing to try something new but would like further information before investing more money into yet another program.

    Thank you, Lillian Quam

    • Hi Lilian, thank you for visiting our site and asking the question.
      South Beach is a well know diet program that offers quick weight loss but for many that type of weight loss is hard to sustain. First two weeks (no carbs even in a form of fruit) can be very difficult to handle too.

  11. So far you have given me good information! I am almost 81 years old and do a Zumba class 3 times a week as much as I can. Also making a try at yoga! . I have come down from 210 to 185 and seem to be stuck.
    I will give this the GOOD GUFF!

  12. Wanted to post that at 9 weeks in I have reached my minimum goal of 15 pounds lost!! From 144 to 129 this morning. I admit I got discouraged during the first 4 weeks it was slow going losing weight, I am 58 years old slow metabolism etc etc, but even with Thanksgiving and a couple of birthday parties I did it. I am going to continue and try for 3-4 more lbs. So thankful to all the people on the support site, everyone is so very generous with all their support!

  13. I just placed an order and questioned myself for not reviewing fully, however I am making this note so that hopefully I can expand with positive comments once I receive the product and get rolling! I have 25 pounds max. to lose but never have I struggled so hard to JUMP START…I’m older and not as active as I usually am and hope to ignite the exercise routine with more energy as I totally am aware that exercise and good eating habits are the greatest tools

  14. THIS is AMAZING….I just tried on a pair of white jeans which I have worn for a few years. They fell off my hips…right to the floor…Insane this really says it all…

    • Heather, how much weight have you lost and which program did you purchase? I’m still undecided but need to lose minimun 50 lbs.

      Thank you.

      Dawn

  15. milestone this morning….scale finally dipped under 200….goodbye to you and I will never see you again😎 64 days – down 30 pounds and BMI down 5.4. “She believed she could, so she did”.

  16. Today was my annual check up for blood work, BP….you know the drill. Results: down 50+ lbs since March 9th and drum roll….BP 122 / 78 (down from 144 / 84 in March). Yay for me 🙂

  17. Once a year my husband and will I go on a restrictive diet to lose the few extra pounds that creep up over the year. We’ve tried the HCG diet several times and hated it. There was no way to be creative with the mere few food choices. It was boring and tedious, I had severe leg cramps and my husband had chronic constipation The PS1000 works basically the same but with more food choices and calories, less restrictions, and no side effects. So if you’ve figured out the HCG diet, this diet will be a walk in the park in comparison. Although you have to count calories to stay within an allotted margin, there are a lot of recipes on the member’s website that make it worth it and fun. What I like most is that it has taught us the importance of watching calories and food portions; I created a food journal in Excel to keep an eye on our daily calories and to plan our meals a week at a time, something we didn’t learn before. Occasionally, after dinner my husband will ask if we have calories left for my homemade applesauce, which he’s so thankful we didn’t have to give up as I’ve always used Truvia as a sweetener, so I’ll go to my chart and calculator and what do you know, yes my love we can have applesauce  I don’t think we’ll gain weight again after this diet from what it has taught us. We have just finished our second week and have lost weight and inches like on the HCG, eight pounds each. By the time we reach the end of the ninety days we will have met our goals and then some.

  18. I have been on pure slim since Dec 3. I have kept my journal. Today is day 25. I have lost about 13 pounds—3 per week— and am very happy with the healthy eating.

  19. After one receives the package how long does it take to begin the diet? I have order ‘diet books’ before and by time you finish reading 300 plus pages I either forgot info in the beginning or lost all desire to start.

    • Hi Stacey, I am on the program right now. The book is not too long at all. The instructions are easy to follow. E-mail me if you have questions, I would love to have a diet buddy 🙂

      • Hey I’m considering trying this how much is the reorder drops for appetite suppression ….and do you feel they really help? Just wondering it’s a lot of money to try …just want the opinion of someone one the program …plus do the energy drops work

  20. This has been life changing for me my husband and our whole family. I have lost 78 pounds , my husband lost over 100 now. Our family was forced to eat healthier and now they actually don’t even want to go back to the old ways. The amazing support group was a life saver for me. I never talked about my weight problems with anyone before. The people there know exactly what it feels like to be overweight and understood my struggles. Best decision I ever made!

  21. So far, I’ve lost 34 pounds and am feeling great! I recently had blood work done and all my numbers are in a healthy range, whereas before, they were quite high. I have more energy, sleep better, have gotten rid of several health issues that plagued me before, such as indigestion, skin issues, and edema, among others. What I love is how easy and simple it is to do this program. I was afraid it would be hard to eat so few calories and be so restrictive, but the drops help tremendously in that regard, and the steady loss keeps me motivated.

  22. I did great and then fell off the wagon:) time to get back to it! Need to take off another 15 lbs but im 5 ft so it really shows!

  23. I have been on PS1000 for ten weeks and have lost 23 1/2 pounds. That is the best weight loss I have ever had. Feel fantastic!

  24. is this also available in New Zealand?

    I also wanted to know whether this would be suitable for me. I’ve already lost 34.5 kg on the Dukan diet. I got down to 53.5kg (I’m 165cm tall, light body frame). I exercise regularly and 15 months ago was advised to change my diet to a mainly vegetarian diet. I don’t eat any starchy or complex carbs.
    Unfortunately though, since switching to the vegetarian diet I have gained 6kg, which I’m desperate to lose again.
    A couple of weeks ago I was researching other diets and the review ratings seem to indicate that this is a very good plan that can be maintained long term.
    I’m very much into clean eating and am wondering whether this plan migth be suitable to assist me in shedding the 6kgs I gained over the past 15 months and maintaining the lower weight at which I feel the most comfortable.

  25. Unfortunately, I did not have great results. For me it was very difficult to give up my favorite fried foods and soda. I know I have to but I am simply not ready yet. The support group is awesome though. I am still part of it just because people are so nice and inspirational.

  26. I have lost about 40 lbs with the pure slim program and have kept it off for 8 months now. woo hoo! I really need to loose about 30-40 more. I am ready! How do I reorder?

    • Becky, please contact the company directly as we are not affiliated with it. Their customer support number is 1 866 599 4240.

  27. I have lost a little over 100 pounds since starting the program in November of 2014. (I am now at 108 pounds).I can not thank this program enough for helping me to become me again. It has been hard and I have tried every diet on the market and got nowhere. The on-line encouragement is also great. I do think that the additional supplements would be just the thing in need to get the loss going again and to help me refocus on my goal of a total of 200 pound loss. I will follow this plan for the rest of my life. NOTHING tastes as good as healthy feels.
