Blink twice if you have ever set any exercise goals without seeing it through.
Blink again if you are fond of constantly postponing the day when you will begin your ‘actual weight loss program’. Enter my next comprehensive program review, Natalie Jill Fitness.
Now that the admission of guilt is out of the way, how would it interest you to know that you are not the only one with this challenge? In fact, starting a fitness program is probably the second hardest thing in the world. The first is actually getting your cat to answer to its name but that’s a whole topic for another day.
Contrary to popular beliefs, the most difficult aspect of fitness is beginning. And I can confidently make this claim because I have been there.
There were days at the beginning of my fitness journey when getting started looked like a pretty big deal. I mean, I had already drafted my well-written plan, my fridge and pantry were already stocked with healthy foods, and I had a cute gym outfit that I had spent a lot of money on. But when it came to the point of actually putting my plan into action, my brain came up with a thousand and one reasons why the timing was just not right…yet.
Looking back, I guess I was just overwhelmed with the many rules and regulations that involved losing weight. If only I had seen a fitness plan that kept everything simple and sweet, I believe I would have started much sooner, rather than later.
However, you don’t need to deal with all of that procrastination when it comes to beginning your fitness journey. Neither do you have to keep up with life-threatening fad diets just to lose that last 10 pounds, as you will soon see.
This article will be discussing Natalie Jill’s signature 7-day jumpstart program that promises a loss of 7 pounds in one week! Is this seemingly outlandish claim real or just marketing propaganda? Let’s find out together in this article.
Summary: This Jumpstart program is dedicated to helping you lose 7 pounds in 7 days. The program is not a workout plan that offers exacting exercises that leaves you panting for hours. Instead, it is a ‘lifestyle and nutrition program’ that puts you on the right track as you begin your fitness journey. The main focus of the Jumpstart program is helping you develop the habit of scheduling and tracking your meals over a period of time. It is designed to be used by everyone, fitness level notwithstanding.
Who is Natalie Jill?
Before I even delve into the program I will be reviewing for this article, it is only right to introduce the face behind it.
“Hi, I am Natalie Jill. I kill fat for a living.”
If this is not your first time of coming across Natalie, you must be familiar with that greeting. For those who don’t know, the above phrase is how Natalie Jill introduces herself. But it was not always this way.
When she was 40 and nursing her newborn daughter, she lost her home and her job. With that, she became one of the victims of the devastating housing and stock market crisis that swept through that time. The stress of the times led to her gaining serious weight and ultimately a divorce from her husband. At this point, it is safe to say that Natalie was at rock bottom. But, thankfully, she didn’t remain there.
She credits the beginning of her weight loss journey to being disgusted by her reflection when passing a shop’s window. She vowed that things will change from that day and immediately took actions to reflect her mindset. She drew a fitness mood board and began uploading healthy meals on Facebook. This would later become the foundation of her popular “7-day JumpStart program.” With the encouragement of her Facebook friends and her desire to turn her life around, Natalie was able to achieve her dream physique.
Buoyed by friends who wanted the same results as hers, Natalie opened her outfit, Natalie Jill Fitness, in 2014. Since then, she has gone on to be a bestselling author, a popular fitness and diet trainer, award-winning content creator, and a licensed sports nutritionist.
Thanks to her sales background during her sojourn in corporate America, Natalie has turned her passion for getting fit into a multi-million dollar business today.
Without wasting any more time, let us take a look into her flagship program and all that it entails.
What is the 7 Day JumpStart program?
According to Natalie Jill, the 7-day JumpStart program is a one-week formula that halts unhealthy cravings, helps you get rid of bloats, and also turns your body into a fat burning machine. However, this is not a workout plan. Instead, the 7-day jumpstart is a nutrition program that can help you ‘jump start’ the loss of weight. This is one plan that is not reserved for a certain few. Everyone, no matter the fitness level, can incorporate it into their routine.
A simple glance at the program shows that it requires only real food, there are no supplements or other meal substitutes. But if you don’t know how to cook or dread the thought of constantly whipping up foods in the kitchen, then you would love this plan. The Jumpstart program requires little or no cooking.
Besides, if you are a picky eater, you are adequately covered by this program. The jumpstart nutrition program offers lots of substitution options that you can use to replace what you do not like on the menu.
How does the program work?
While reading this review, you should note that this program is unlike most fitness or weight loss programs that are out there.
The main focus of this program is eating foods rich in nutrients and engaging in quick workouts that easily burn fat. In order to ensure that the maximum result is achieved, Natalie Jill sets a timeline of 7 days to drop 7 pounds.
In addition, the plan contains a reasonable amount of recipes using rich foods that help your body to get rid of fat while also detoxifying it. How is this possible? Well, the eBook that comes with the program explains how the foods and exercise help you to achieve weight loss. It also teaches ways you can incorporate these superfoods into your meals.
To begin the program, just follow the easy instructions spelled out in the eBook. Since it only lasts for a week, you should not be so scared about giving up any of your favorite foods that is not included in the program.
As an added incentive, note that you don’t have to go through the duration of the program alone. Natalie’s team can be contacted whenever you have any questions or concerns about the program or if you need support. You can either contact the team at their various social media handles or simply send a mail to support@EatDrinkShrinkPlan.com
This program has been adapted for all age groups looking to quickly shed their weight. In addition, Natalie Jill claims that there is no need to worry about the condition of your body while you are undergoing this program. But to be on the safe side, discuss this program with your physician if you are taking any medication for weight loss or if you have had struggles losing weight in the past.

What I love about the program
It is affordable
The program is relatively inexpensive. Unlike other similar programs which makes ridiculous promises that are clearly false, the Natalie Jill’s 7 day JumpStart just lets you know it can make you drop 7 pounds in just a week. And all that for less than the price of a monthly gym membership. If you ask me, this surely looks like a good time to be a cheapskate.
It uses real food
During the course of the program, you will be getting all your nutrition from real food that can easily be found in your local grocery store. So feel free to chuck away all your supplements, solvents, and other meal replacements into the bin. You won’t be needing them.
It requires no gym
Most people feel anxious about visiting the gym. If you are one of them, you can go ahead and breathe a sigh of relief because this program can be done in the comfort of your home. Just plug in your playlist and convert your living room or basement to a private gym. It complements well with any yoga routine also.
It can be used by everyone
Are you new into the fitness world or have sojourned long enough to be called master? You will find that this program does not discriminate. There is absolutely something for everyone, including grandma.
It is dietary-conscious
The 7 day Jump Start program caters to various diets. Apart from being simple to prepare, it is gluten free, peanut free, and soy free. So you have virtually no excuse to blame your dietary requirements on your inability to exercise.
What I find concerning about this program
It primarily focuses on foods
I believe this is in line with Natalie Jill marketing it as a “nutrition program.” But for a program that aims to jump-start the fitness routine of beginners, the minimal focus on exercising is disappointing. And even though it includes a workout plan, Natalie barely gives it much attention and just glosses over it.
By way of explanation, she claims that the quick movements involved in the exercises make it easy for your body to speedily burn fat and build muscles. In summary, you might have to look for other sources of exercise if you are not satisfied with the one in the program.
How much does it cost?
If you are convinced about the program and want to get on it immediately, you can get it at a special price of $19.00, a savings of more than 49% off the normal price. Your payment gives you access to these contents within minutes:
- A complete one-week meal plan
- A simple set of “Nutrition Rules” you can follow
- A list of acceptable food substitutes
- An outline showing how meals should be broken down
- Worksheets to aid you with goal settings and tips that will help you get in the right frame of mind to lose weight.
- Fitness tips from Natalie Jill
- And Natalie’s 10 commandments of a fit lifestyle.
“Note that this program comes with a money back guarantee in the event that you are not satisfied with it. You can request a refund as long as it is within 60 days from the time you bought the program. Your money will be refunded back to you without any penalties.”
Should you purchase this program?
If you are starting out on the weight loss scene, this program will be helpful as it breaks down every information you need for your journey. In addition, you don’t have to spend time counting calories or drafting healthy meal plans as everything has been done for you. However, when you feel you are knowledgeable about your nutritional requirements, it will be time to move on.
Natalie Jill condenses most of the jargon found in the fitness community into an easy-to-follow step that you will have no difficulty mastering. Just as long as you learn healthy eating habits and also undertake the exercises, you will train your body to continue even when the 7 days are up. Remember, this program is not the end of your journey to fitness, it is merely the beginning.
