I lost about 30 lbs in 4 months or so which cost me over $4000.00. I did not reach my target weight or "graduate," which means there is no transition coaching. Therefore they do not share your ideal numbers: caloric intake, carbs, protein, and meal times with you. They do not actually tell you what is in their products other than the protein/ carb count. So, you really don't learn to build your meal plans and grocery lists (and so on) unless you graduate (or at least I'm told this happens when you graduate). I did not continue because of the cost. I have put almost all of the weight back on, and am unable to afford another $4000.00 or more. For me, the coaching was really about keeping you on track with their products at the right time, and not about nutritional choices for a healthy lifestyle. If you can afford to continue on the program to the end, perhaps all of this occurs once you graduate. Until then, you are just eating their products and there isn't much learning. In fact, I felt like much of the coaching was more about inventory management then learning nutrition. I sought nutrition coaching, did a resting metabolic assessment which confirmed my body was burning mostly fat. I exercise regularly (as I did on the diet), but my body does not want to burn carbohydrates after this diet. Which means, any carbs over what your ideal numbers are, are simply stored as fat, and the weight begins to come back on. One of their coaches predicated this would happen as a matter of near certainty in order to encourage me to continue until graduation, but I felt so guilty about taking money away from the family in order to sustain purchasing their expensive products. My guess is that this occurs quite regularly. I did a quick search for negative reviews, but these are suspiciously unavailable. Maybe their success rate is ridiculously high, and I'm just one of the outliers. Healthy eating shouldn't cost this much. I'm exploring other options in the context of my gym to get back on track. Also looking at KETO, and intermittent fasting as ways to get similar results without the considerable expense. If you need to loose 30-50 lbs, plan on spending 4-6K on this program.
