The Fat Decimator Review . . And The Thing I HATE About This Diet*

The Fat Decimator – Another ‘blockbuster’ diet from a master diet salesman.  And my big question is whether this is the real deal – or not?  Scam or science-based sense?

And the one thing I HATE about this diet*

When I first heard about the Fat Decimator it was from a subscriber who referred it to me to review because she believed it was something that worked and was effective where others had failed – but something concerned her.

And it concerned me, too.

The problem with diet programs like Decimator is that they tend to come onto the market thick and fast and promise a ton of great, safe results along with a usually colorful backstory.

The Decimator diet seemed to fit that bill to a tee and frankly I tend to swerve past them.  It’s too pat, too well turned out, too hyped and often too little safety in what is being offered.

So What Did I Find?

So what happened, here?  I gave the Fat Decimator to three friends, who also subscribe to my blog and know my feelings on these matters.  I asked them to be brutally frank about what they found and I also wanted to personally look at the results they achieved.

The Fat Decimator Diet or System says it is designed to permit “almost anyone” (he says) to lose  21 pounds in 21 days.

Now, that’s a lot of weight to lose very fast. One of my tenet in fat burning programs is to ensure weight loss is handled safely and (relatively) quickly. Is 21 pounds in 21 days realistic and safe?

It depends on a number of factors – lifestyle, existing weight, dietary issues, metabolism – a host of factors in fact and so such claims can be extravagant and simply incorrect.

Diet Decimator originator, former marine  Kyle Cooper (there’s part of the backstory)  says the program started with his meeting
a Korean medical student while serving in Afghanistan and claims to be revolutionary in the way it goes about burning fat.

Essentially there are three, key elements:

1 Detoxyfying through diet in order to cleanse the body (along with some special foods that may be considered bad, but which can help you
burn fat faster than ever);

2. Exercise routines that permit a boost in metabolism and can rapidly speed up weight loss, and

3. Mindset – the motivation and willpower to permit fast and permanent weight loss.

The Problems

Frankly, a few things gave some cause for concern, including the emphasis on salt as a means to break down food more efficiently.

There have been many, myself included, who have been on something of an anti-salt thing for some time however there is no question that if eaten at the right time and in the right quantities, salt can actually help balance the PH levels in the body and help with the fat burning processes.

It can also help boost energy levels (again, if consumed properly and at the right time).

So that conformed with much of what I have been interested in for some time.  But I also wanted to monitor what my friends, the testers if you like, found about the diet.

Did they lose the weight they sought to?

Well the results showed:  2 lost just under the 21 pounds and one lost 23 pounds in three weeks.

That’s impressive, frankly, but the question is whether the program is sufficient to keep that fat off.  They feel confident, in part because the Decimator permits some favorite foods to be retained.

And that is important in dieting, which is about burning fat rather than muscle.

It complies with another key facet of my ‘dietary beliefs’, which is that losing weight is not all about calories, which is a measure of food energy.

There is much more to losing weight than simply restricting calorie intake, it’s more ‘holistic’ than that, which is something the Decimator program recognises.

Pros and Cons

Pros:  The Fat Decimator dispels the salt myth, which is actually essential to good health and can rapidly assist in burning fat.  I’m glad to see a diet that addresses this and deals with it like this.

It takes a sensible and proven look at the use of some heavy cardio exercises that can be health-damaging

It also has a full money-back guarantee (and essential in my book).

Cons:  The food advice regarding that being advanced is fine so far as it goes, but it’s ‘packaged’ rather than elaborated upon.  Food choices so far as healthy foods go requires comprehensive knowledge and the system tends to oversimplify in my view.

*Oh yes, the thing I HATE about this diet – the sexist nonsense image used to market it.  I’m tired of pretty women looking at men’s abs as a means to sell a diet.  Ughh!

My Verdict – I give this 4.5 stars because the bonuses from the purchase link (an affiliate link) are actually excellent and yours to keep regardless, but the system addresses the 2 issues that have been badly beaten up in the diet business – the salt-attacks and the cardio over-emphasis.  Plus my test group showed pretty impressive results

My No Think Diet Review – A No Brainer?

One of the latest diets to hit the internet is the NoThinkDiet from “Dr  and which features a bunch of celebs (well, kind of B-class celebs unless you consider the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to be A-graders.)

And so the marketing features a lot of these people but I’m always interested in the safety and effectiveness of any diet, and the NoThinkDiet is one that requires some actual thinking.

Here’s the essence of the diet – it stresses healthy eating which is my own Number 1 objective in weight loss.  So rather than cutting out foods, the No Think Diet program is designed to help people to eat property.

It is therefore an instruction on how to eat properly to lose weight – which is exactly what a good diet should do (in my opinion).

Nothing wrong with that at all.

Big tick, in fact.

The diet promotes simplicity, which is also good, so long as it all makes sense (from a nutritional and a common sense viewpoint).

There are step by step guidelines, which is easy to follow and provides some sensible tips on how and what to eat.

The diet also works hard to ensure toxins are removed from the body at its commencement, which can hinder weight loss and also reduce your body’s immunity.

This process is good for anyone – whether you’re seeking to shed pounds or not.  Ensuring that toxins are removed from the body is one of the best ways anyone can lose weight.

My focus with my blog is safety first dieting.  Particularly for women wanting to lose weight fast and women who want to lose weight after pregnancy, it is sooo important to practice safe eating and weight loss sensibly.

Sound Diet Tips

One of the things I HATE about some diets is their ability to provide often flaky advice based on supposedly sound scientific and nutritional knowledge, but which are often downright dangerous.

Who wrote the NoThinkDiet?

I do believe it’s so important to know who is writing about nutrition and diets.

Okay, I’m not a qualified nutritionist or doctor, but I have worked and studied to learn as much as many I believe.  And I’ve succeeded in helping people lose weight safely.

The NoThinkDiet is written by Dr Charles Livingston (below), who is well known in the diet business.  He’s also a board certified chiropractic physician, a certified wellness practitioner and also a certified advanced nutritionist.

The No Think Diet is focused on longer term weight loss, which is exactly my philosophy.  There are fast-fix ways to lose weight certainly, but for long term weight loss, the best way is for sound eating and exercise.

Exercise Advice Helps

Similarly, providing good exercise advice is also extremely helpful and the NTD looks at those factors as well.

The exercises in the diet are simple and gentle to start with and do not become at all excessive during the course of the diet routine.  They are very effective in terms of helping build and sustain the fat loss program.

The Pros and Cons

Pros – The NoThinkDiet takes a sensible approach to weight loss based upon good eating practices.  I like that and the tips are good.

It also cleverly introduces exercise in a moderate manner to build in with the sensible eating.  That is great.  Exercise is fundamental to good weight loss that is sustainable.

The diet adds in diet logs and videos which make it easy to follow along in a manner that really makes the whole exercise as simple and painless as possible.

Plus . . very important . . The No Think Diet also provides a sound money back guarantee. Crucial for any product like this.

Cons – I’m not overly fussed on ‘celebrity endorsed’ weight loss systems and frankly it raises my hackles somewhat.  However, that’s life.  What’s more important is whether the system works.  This does.

It costs a (relatively small amount) of money, but the advice is sensible and will shed pounds, so what is a few dollars?

My Verdict – This is as four star system worthy of the investment. Building sensible nutrition with exercise is unquestionably the best way to lose weight and keep it off.

Let me know your own thoughts.  I’d love to hear.

 

 

 

Another benefit of the NoThinkDiet program is the resources that are provided. The program includes video lessons, exercise, and diet logs, allowing clients to check their progress and ensure that they are meeting goals. There is also a convenient section that allows clients to set goals and tick them off as they achieve them – a powerful motivational tool.

Removing Harmful Toxins from the Body

The first two weeks of the eating plan focus in ridding the body of toxins that are in the body. These toxins can be responsible for preventing weight loss and lowering immune function. Once immunity has been lowered, the body becomes defenseless against stress, disease, and low energy levels.

Avoiding Foods that Contain “Hidden” Sugars

Many common food items such as bananas and soy mile contain large amounts of sugar. These sugars can harm the body by disrupting hormone levels. Once the hormone levels are unbalanced, weight loss efforts will be halted.

Easy to Follow Healthy Meal Checklists

Whether eating out or cooking a meal at home, the NoThinkDiet program provides clients with an easy to follow that does not require drastically changing every eating habits. As long as the food choices are nutritious, the body will absorb the odd amount of “unhealthy” food and weight loss efforts will not be derailed.

Foods that Support the Body’s Metabolic Function

The No Think Diet emphasizes the importance of consuming food that promotes overall health. Foods that help the body shed fat quickly and safety are essential. In speeding up the metabolism, more calories will be burned throughout the day.

Moderate Exercise

Consistent exercise can be highly beneficial. No Think Diet suggests that clients include small amounts of exercise into the daily routine. Without having to spend hours at the gym, the program recommends that 30 minutes of exercise 2-3 times a week is advantageous for reaching weight loss goals.

No Think Diet – $47.00

With the purchase of the No Think Diet comes a long list of additional items, all offered at no additional cost. These bonus items include:

– Unlimited Access to NoThinkDiet Weight Loss Community

– Personal Diet Generator

– Recipe Book

With these additional resources, users of the No Think Diet will be able to start their weight loss journey, reaching goals they never thought possible before.

Do I Recommend the NoThinkDiet?  

Yes – with the reservation that it requires sensible eating together with the advice and tips offered.

Live Healthy Without Removing The Fun

Many people have trouble keeping up with their diet and their exercise routine because it can be tiring or too strict and that can kill your motivation in the long run. This is not new, most weight loss and fitness programs incorporate some level of physical exercise and restrictions on your food intake.

Usually, diet means depriving yourself of a lot of food, mostly your favorite ones. Strict diets can stop you of enjoying your food, and this can be frustrating on it’s own.

Luckily, you don’t have to do those crash diets anymore because Sara J. Brown has come up with a weight loss course that shows you how to live healthy and feel great whilst doing it. Sara is the author and creator of Healthy with Paleo. If you haven’t already heard of the Paleo diet then let me tell you that last year it was the most searched for diet on the internet. It is massively popular.

Also known as the caveman diet the Paleo diet replaces all modern processed foods with those eaten by our caveman ancestors. The reasoning being is that it is the modern foods and processing that is causing much of the dietary diseases and obesity that is prevalent today.

“Today, You Are Going To Learn About One of the Most Recommended Diets Out There… And the Results you’ll have To See To Believe”

Sara J. Brown (Healthy Paleo Diet Author)
Quote

“I had more energy and felt the best I have ever felt in my adult life. Not only was it working on the onset but I was actually staying slim and healthy.”

Sara J. Brown (Healthy Paleo Diet Author)

BOTTOM LINE: Healthy With Paleo is more of a lifestyle change than a diet. It is not something you do for a few weeks to lose weight. Sure you will lose weight but your new healthy eating is something you should be adopting for the foreseeable future.

On the plus side it does not mean eating less just eating better. It doesn’t take a nutritional expert to read the contents of most tinned and packet foods today to realize they are far from healthy.

The Paleo diet has been extraordinarily popular and Sara personal interpretation will be just as popular I am sure.

The Venus Factor Review

The Venus Factor

slim-waistThe Weight Loss System for Women

Worry not Ladies! There is now a weight loss program that is strictly for women from all walks of life who are ready to embrace a healthy lifestyle. A weight loss program that addresses your particular needs. Each of you is different and should have nutritional and fitness plans to suit your body. That is why John Barban who is a well known nutrition expert and conditioning coach has developed a weight control program – The Venus Factor.

However, when it comes to losing weight, it is very important to remember that the woman’s weight loss system is different than that of the men’s. Why? Women have more fat burning hormones than men, but a woman’s body reacts slowly to these hormones while men have a faster reaction to it. The Venus Factor is the solution for these metabolic problems of women.

What is this weight loss program and how does it works?

The Venus Factor is a program that provides a plan for a strategic restriction of calorie intake. It will show you the guidelines for the foods. I.e. what and how much food to eat within your body calorie ratio. The nutritional diet plan is personalized to your age, weight, height, physical aptitude and overall fitness level. It will also teaches you the reasons why unwanted fats are stored in the body.

The Venus Factor’s nutritional diet program works hand in hand with its 12 week exercise manual. These exercises are not too intense and can be done at home. The Venus Factor also has different levels of exercises to suit your capabilities. The exercises in the manual are mostly focused on your belly, thighs, hips and shoulders, These body parts are the areas that store fats. This workout manual covers different points for toning the body muscles and contains easy to perform exercises that will trigger the fat burning hormones.

Using your particular body references, a combination of the nutritional software and exercise program results in a kind of metabolic override. The Venus Factor centers on the fast activation of leptin. Leptin is the fat burning hormone in your body. Women have more leptin in their bodies than men but are slow to activate it.

The Venus Factor makes these hormones work harder and overcome any resistance to help you cast off those unwanted and stubborn fats. It enhances the female metabolism, produces more body energy, has no weight loss rebound, controls the craving of forbidden foods and helps maintain fat loss.

The Venus Factor also contains an online customer community called Immersion. This is made up of all the members of The Venus Factor where you can discuss and share your own experiences using the weight loss program. By sharing a common goal to live slimmer and healthier, members support each other in achieving that goal and shedding those unwanted pounds.

PROS: The Venus Factor can be easily used in your daily routine and is legit and proven by top universities and doctors. It has a 24/7 support service that will help you with your concerns regarding the program. It is currently the most popular online weight loss program by far.

CONS: It’s hard to find any downsides with The Venus Factor other than the obvious. It is only for women. Like all other online products you will need to access the training online or download and print or use an e-reader.

“The secret to the success of the Venus Factor weight loss system for women lies in what’s referred to as Metabolic Override. Metabolic Override consists of unique diet and exercise strategies designed to help optimize the female metabolism and facilitate healthy weight loss while accommodating the individual lifestyle.”

VenusFactor.com

BOTTOM LINE: The Venus Factor has had some amazing success for many women. It has many testimonials and a great community. I think the community and support is a really huge factor (no pun intended) that probably makes this the best choice for most women.

No weight loss or diet regime will be an easy ride for anyone. That is the nature of the beast. However the additional support from the Venus Factor should significantly increase your chances of success .
