Does It Make A Difference?

What can Organifi Green Juice Powder do for your weight loss and wellness journey? By cutting out the need for preparation, this superfood juice is a powerful one-stop shot to energizing your mornings with a punch packed with nutritious greens. My Organifi review looks closely at what it is, how it helps, what it’s made of, and the great results consistent use can do for you!

Overview

Organifi Green Juice Powder is a ground superfood-based supplement food meant to be mixed and drunk with water or added to recipes. It’s supposed to help diets, exercise plans, and promote general healthy eating and living! The main focus is on leafy greens and vegetables, but the brand also has Red and Gold versions available to help the mind and sleep respectively.

Pros

There was a lot to appreciate from Organifi. It’s quick, easy, and full of great, healthy ingredients. My favorite parts about my month drinking this green juice were:

  • Immune system support
  • Excellent digestive help (it seriously helped me poop!)
  • Tons of superfoods in a pretty small serving
  • The fastest, easiest way to get nutrients for busy mornings
  • Strong minty flavor helped make it taste less like grass
  • Great energy boosts to help lose weight by promoting activity
  • Curbs sugar cravings
  • Gluten free, 100% vegan and soy-free
  • Complimentary recipe download with purchase

Cons

I really did like the Organifi Green Juice Powder, but there were a few things I could’ve done without. The downsides aren’t much and I still strongly recommend this product, but I wouldn’t feel right without mentioning a few of these minor issues I had:

  • The taste of the powder is pretty strong, and not super great. Just adding it to water was a little hard to get used to at first.
  • You have to refrigerate this after opening, so it took up a corner of my fridge I usually for other things.
  • A little pricey for only 1 month worth of product
  • Only 2g of protein

 

As you can see, the pros pretty much outweigh the cons, and the problems I did have with this powder were mainly due to my picky tastes. I wish it wasn’t quite as expensive, but you get what you pay for, so the quality is worth it.

Another reminder that this is simply a supplement to a workout plan that should include physical activity such as weight training, cardio, yoga and so on. 

There is a lot of other supplement powders out there, but I like Organifi just because it’s easy and I needed something that was quick and could help get a full serving of vegetables in my diet. The superfoods are great, I loved the energy boosts, and it does a good job at trying to get over the whole taste thing by offering recipes on their website, which I tried a lot of.

 

I don’t really like to eat a lot of vegetables, so feeling like I was being nutritious and getting my daily greens is what sold me. This product is aimed more towards women like me who just need that boost first thing in the morning but can’t be bothered with a juicer.

Ingredients

Since it is a superfood powder, you’ll find tons of ingredients when you look at the label. A lot of these things I really hadn’t heard of before or understood the benefits of, so I took the time to do a little bit of research and I’m going to point out the main helpful ingredients:

  • Spirulina: Don’t freak when I say this is a type of algae! It’s a very powerful source of natural protein and antioxidants that replicate a lot of the nutritious values that meat has. This powder is important for vegans thanks to the high iron content and immune system boosters.
  • Chlorella: This is another protein-rich algae type. It’s got lots of healthy fats, good bacteria, and hormonal control values.
  • Moringa: Get your digestive tract moving with the leaves of this plant! Seriously, you will poop when you take this stuff. High levels of fiber, amino acids, calcium, and vitamins make this African-based plant a powerful source of superfood for the body.

 

In addition to these foreign words, there is a lot of great, more common ingredients that you know all about. Your daily green juice includes plenty of:

  • Lemon
  • Turmeric
  • Wheatgrass
  • Match (green tea)
  • Coconut water
  • Beets

Is Organifi Safe?

Organifi is USDA Certified, so this product is safe to use under their guidelines. Additionally, it has no artificial ingredients, additives, or unnecessary fillers. In my opinion, totally safe! Many natural healthy foods aren’t regulated by the FDA.

Results

On its own, Organifi can’t fix every aspect of your life and make you healthy. To lose weight and see a significant improvement, a healthy diet and fitness are required. This powder is more supplementive than it is anything else, but even on my “bad weeks” where my diet and activity took a back-burner, I saw some real results.

 

For me, the two biggest benefits and results I got from taking Organifi every day for 36 days was my skin cleared up a lot and I had tons of energy. In the beginning, I felt like it gave my gut a good detox and cleaned out all the junk in my body, and maintained that inner healthy feeling throughout the rest of the month.

Is it Worth It?

If you’re looking for a quick, easy way to supplement a pretty healthy diet and lifestyle, primarily in the whole “eat your greens!” way, I do recommend Organifi Green Juice Powder!

 Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides Review:

The Benefits Of Daily Usage

In case you’re into the keto diet, searching for an approach to pump up that muscle, want better skin and nails, suffer from joint issues or just need to lose some weight for summer, collagen peptides could do miracles to make those goals your reality.


In this article, I will clarify what collagen is and why you should get it in your body day by day and why I chose to pick Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides as my #1 collagen powder for all weight control plans.

Overview

Collagen has been a standout amongst the most raved about trends when it comes to skincare, mental excellence, physical wellbeing, and healthy diets. You’ll find collagen in tons of makeup products, lotions, and anti-aging creams. Plus, it’s in many superfood powders and shakes, too. Overall, collagen is great for you – but why should you choose Vital Proteins’ peptides?

 

Pros

It’s pretty clear I’m a fan of these collagen peptides, but I’ll go ahead and list the major pros this powder has for me. These aspects I think are what make this such a popular brand and product among the dozens out there:

  • Great for skin, nails, joints, muscle pain, and hair growth
  • Gluten and dairy free
  • 100% unflavored
  • 20g collagen & 18g protein
  • Grass-fed cows only
  • Great with cold or hot liquid for mixing
  • Just 1 simple ingredient – no confusion

Cons

Frankly, there are few negative comments I have for this product. It’s pretty guaranteed and proven to be excellent for you, but I was able to think of a few problems some people may have with this brand’s collagen powder.

    • Not Vegan
    • Collagen can be pricey
  • Not totally odorless

 

Most genuine collagen products out there are great, but I really appreciate Vital Proteins product here. It’s done a lot for consumers when it comes to joint pain, and it’s way easier to take than other powders thanks to the tasteless, odorless formula. The bioavailability (ability to absorb into the body) is incredible and it works like a charm both inside and out.

What Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides Does For You

Put basically, collagen represents around 33% of your body’s protein arrangement. It takes on a significant job in the development of your skin, bones, muscle, ligaments, and tendons and is found in your cornea, veins, and teeth and fingernails. Collagen also helps the elasticity of your muscles and joints, skin, and promotes healthy hair and nail growth.

 

It does more than just make your skin, hair, and nails look pretty. Thanks to the Arginine and Alanine included in the extensive amino acid profile, Vital Proteins also helps you grow and maintain muscle mass. You won’t find this in many other collagen products.

As far as dieting and exercise go, Vital Proteins can help with your flexibility and energy levels. You can push your muscles harder during a workout, and start seeing those gains quicker. A lot of consumers are thankful for the lower amount of aches and pains post-workout, too. This is a favorite among yoga enthusiasts. 

 

No, it’s not magic!

 

Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides include all of these great benefits for your body and more. The formula they use is totally natural, with bovine from only grass-fed cows. Unfortunately, this means the powder is not vegan-friendly.

 

On the bright side, this stuff is paleo and keto friendly, as well as being extremely nutritious and including a pretty great protein boost. For me, I found it helped my diet, too. I felt full after my servings of Vital Proteins, so I found myself eating less and fasting longer.

How To Use It

It’s recommended that you take Vital Proteins powder twice a day for the best results. This could be one scoop at two different times, or two scoops at once – it’s really your choice. During my diets, I like to do one scoop at the start and end of the day, but when I’m cheating… I’ll make a milkshake with 2 whole scoops and call it even.

 

Using this powder is pretty easy. You can mix it with hot or cold liquid, like coffee in the morning or in fruit smoothies.

Some people even add it to some foods, like pudding or soup or oatmeal. Just make sure you stir it in well!

 

There is no flavor so you can put it in just about anything you want, but the website has recipes, too.

Is It Safe?

Absolutely no harmful ingredients are in Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. In fact, there is literally only one ingredient… collagen. Everything is all-natural, even the cows.

 

This brand’s collagen is made from pasture-raised bovine hide. It’s high-quality and sustainable.

Results

Skin, hair, joint and pain results can happen within one week. Vital Proteins’ Collagen can also be subtle and best taken long-term, providing supplemental improvement to your health in small ways that grow as the months pass.

 

Mostly, this powder will help preserve youthfulness and elasticity through your body. A lot of people see a difference when they look at hair and nail growth pictures, and some have immediate joint-pain relief, but it’s more geared towards maintenance than transformation.

 

That said, women of any age should be taking collagen supplements to help avoid wrinkles, brittle nails, stiff muscles, and other common side-effects of just getting older. Vital Proteins’ just happens to offer what I consider one of the best defenses against aging.

Is It Worth It?

Is supplementing your diet with collagen worth it? Yes!

 

Is using Vital Proteins worth it?  I believe it is!

 

There is a lot of different options out there that offer some of the same benefits that this brand does, but I appreciate the ethical and transparent policy and practice that Vital Proteins uses. Everything is natural and free of any harmful chemicals, even down to the life of the cows used to create this powder. That’s something I really value, and the benefits are unbelievable.

Red Tea Detox

Our most recent study brings us into a realm I truly love- healthy beverages and the banishment of soda! I am a fan of fruit infused water, juicing, and other things like that. In our Red Tea Detox review, we test a new approach to detoxifying the body using African red tea with a combination of other good foods and fitness. As always, we have tested the program on ourselves, or rather on two of our friends that were happy to try something new. Mariah and Jill have been unhappy with their weight for many years and it was finally time to change that! So how did it work for them? Read and find out! 🙂

Lean Belly Breakthrough

Hey, this is Sophia! Ellie and I spent the last month on a self-experiment with our friend Kiki, an aged hula master, who has lost her good shape over the years and wanted to get back to it. We asked her to help us do a lean belly breakthrough review on the recent program by Bruce Krahn and Dr. Heinrick.

We stuck to the program and did what it says with decent results. The best thing is that Kiki is 52 years old because this particular fitness and program are designed specifically for aged people with higher risks and lower fitness or agility. Perfect! Let’s get into it and find out what results we’ve got.

Yoga Burn

Hello everyone! We have done another extensive review and self-experiment on another fitness program that we have come to love. It is a yoga program on DVD (and digital) and to test it, we have helped our friend Monica to lose a good amount of weight over the course of three months. Find out all about it in our yoga burn review!

It was created by a lovely woman and fellow yoga trainer Zoe Bray-Cotton, whose passion for the sport has sparked the same kind of passion in our friend. If you find fitness boring, you should try yoga, because a lot of people tend to like it even if they never enjoyed exercise before.

Noom

Have you ever asked someone who has lost a ton of weight how they did it?

Our next review takes us to one of my favorite exercise and wellness tools named Noom.

Have you ever seen a genuine weight loss commercial featuring people who have lost weight and the process it took? Please note that I am not referring to the dodgy pop-up ads all over the internet which claims you can lose 50 pounds in one week.

From the answers you have collated, you will notice that the general consensus can be summed up in these five words: Losing weight is extremely difficult.

Of course, it is not hard to see why this is so. After all, it is common knowledge that losing weight requires accountability and dedication. For instance, on a normal weight loss journey, you have to track the foods you eat daily. You have to know about the kinds of food to eat or avoid. You have to know the required number of calories you need daily and ensure you don’t go over it. You also have to come up with exercises that can burn fat efficiently, whether weight training, cardio or yoga.  I am sure I am forgetting some other requirements, but you get the gist.

Having to keep track of all of these different things at once can be tedious for even the most dedicated person. So is it any wonder that most people just choose to throw in the towel and console themselves with a tub of their favorite vanilla ice cream? Alright, I know I am being extra specific here, but truly this is not about me.

Anyway, you can agree that losing weight is not as easy as the commercials say. But what if you had access to a tool that can do all that tedious tracking and calorie-counting so you concentrate solely on your weight loss?

You read that right!

There is an app in the market that can function as your nutritionist and personal trainer for just a token every month. And its name is…

(Drum rolls)

Noom!

My melodramatic self aside, Noom is that health and wellness program you did not know was missing from your life. In fact, its creators claim it is the last weight loss program you will ever need! Okay, that sounds pretty confident. But does the product live up to its hype? That is what we will find out in this article.

 

Summary

Product name: Noom

Founders: Saeju Jeong and Artem Petakov

Price: From $32.25 per month

Free Trial: Available for 14 days. It can be canceled at any time.

Suitable for: People interested in keeping off the weight and also forming healthy habits.

Summary

Noom is a paid app that is designed to help you shed weight. It places more emphasis on behavioral change rather than physical change. And its end goal is to ensure you cultivate healthy habits that can serve you in the long term.

Health & wellness

What is It?

I really don’t know where the founders got the name from so you’ll have to forgive me for that. Anyway, it is a weight loss and fitness program whose principal aim is to aid you in forming healthy eating habits and lifestyle. And how does it achieve this? It gives you access to tools that are instrumental in educating you on the type of foods you should eat in accordance with your health and weight loss goals.

In contrast to other similar programs that solely focus on the physical elements of weight loss, Noom ensures that your mental state also undergoes a healthy transformation. In other words, it strives to help you overcome the mental barriers that encourage poor eating habits. I believe this is a good thing because as you may well know, it is not everyone that has the mental fortitude to resist a deep-fried pizza in favor of a broccoli salad.

 

With the app, you have access to a team of professional nutritionists, health coaches, and personal trainers that are ready to work closely with you.

 

Benefits

Allow members to connect with other like-minded users.

No food is off-limits.

It offers customizable meal plans and workouts.

Allow members to set goals and challenge themselves.

It offers personal coaching for issues such as emotional eating.

It has tons of recipes for users to access.

Assistance from a team of certified dietitians, nutritionists, health coaches, among others.

 

How does It work?

When you log into the app, you are shown foods that will help you to achieve your weight loss goals faster. The app will also give you tips on sustaining healthy habits, prompt you to rate your motivation for the day, and give you a quiz. In addition, you can track your daily exercises and workouts plans, access the millions of recipes using foods in its database, and read articles tailored to your weight loss goals.

Try Noom’s 14 Day Trial

This might look like the app is requiring you to do too much. After all, the only reason why it is being considered is that you are tired of counting calories and all it entails. But if you ask me, as long as every one of these activities goes toward keeping the weight off, then it is welcome.

 

What is the food database

Before I proceed further, let’s talk about Noom’s food database. I am sure you must have heard the common saying that abs are made in the kitchen. Well, apply that saying to your general weight loss goals.

In essence, what I am trying to say is that the type of foods you eat plays a large role in whether you will lose weight or not. This is why there is a need for you to track the meals you consume on a daily basis. However, you and I know that daily tracking of food can be quite tedious especially for a newbie in the weight loss journey. Thankfully, the food database does all the heavy lifting.

It might interest you to know that the huge food database is a major feature of the app. To give you an idea, this database contains more than 3.7 million food options that you can choose from.

It even allows you to choose portion sizes that are ideal for the food of your choice. And the best part, all this is done from the comfort of your couch.

Noom

Are you required to follow a special food menu?

With Noom, there are no pre-packaged food programs. The app only requires you to log in your daily meals and through the use of green, yellow, and red colors, it helps you to see how healthy your foods are.  Foods like fruits and veggies are colored as green. This means they are loaded with healthy nutrients and are particularly low in calories. Dairy and meat are color-coded as yellow foods. It means they are still good even though they contain a large number of calories.

Red foods have the least amount of healthy nutrients and the highest calories. Food on the red list usually includes desserts, pizza, and other processed foods. And no, the app does not tell you to totally avoid foods in red or you can as well go ahead and stop reading. After all, what is life without desserts?

Instead, it wants you to know that these red foods are less filling and extremely high in calories so you can know how to add that into your daily calorie goal.

 

What are the types of programs offered?

Noom has two types of programs on offer. There is a diabetes management program and a healthy weight program.

The healthy weight program: Every food item in this program is color-coded according to the calories it contains. When you select this program, you will be given a calorie budget every day. Your task is to make sure that you do not go over the limit of this budget.

The diabetes management program: This program is unlike the healthy weight program where foods are classified based on the number of calories they contain. Rather, the food items in this program are color-coded based on the number of carbohydrates in them.

 

Can you shed more light on the experts involved in the program?

Of course! It has a team of registered dietitians nutritionists (RDNs) that are actively involved in the weight loss journey of the users. These professionals are in charge of the food database to ensure that you get the right information when it comes to your diet. They also design the eating plans available in the app.

It also has a team of health coaches that have been certified by the National Consortium for Credentialing Health & Wellness Coaches. These coaches are provided to users for more personal and customized training.

Noom

After downloading Noom, what’s next?

You will have to register on the platform. The registration is pretty easy just as long as you follow the prompts. You will be asked to input your age, current weight, height, the amount of weight you want to lose, and, on a scale from tortoise to a hare, how fast you want to lose it. All these factors will be computed to give you a daily calorie goal that you have to meet.

When you are done filling the questionnaire, the app will request permission to access the Health app of your smartphone. It does this so it can log all your exercise automatically. However, you will have to manually log in the foods you eat daily. When you do that, the Noom app subtracts the calories from your recommended daily calorie goal so that you can see if you are in line or have exceeded it.

 

How much does it cost?

Noom is not cheap and for good reason. Downloading the app and signing up for a membership can cost you about $50 every month. But if you are still not convinced about the program, take advantage of the 14 days free trial available after which you will be required to upgrade to the paid version.

 

What is the benefit of the paid version?

The paid version requests more detailed information about your health, fitness and lifestyle goals. It also requires you to provide any barriers that you feel is standing in your way of losing weight. In addition, the paid version also gives you tools to educate yourself on what you eat.

For instance, instead of telling you that the kale smoothie you just prepared is healthy, it tells you that the smoothie is packed with nutrients and low in calories. To put it simply, the Noom app does not just help you drop pounds. It teaches you the science behind your weight loss in simple and easy-to-understand terms.

 

What I love

 

It has a thriving community

If you are one of those who love doing things in a group, Noom will suit you perfectly. With its membership, you gain access to feedback and support from other members totaling 45 million and still counting. There are message boards and forums where you could ask any questions bothering you without the fear of being judged. There are also group chat features so you can interact closely with others in real time.

 

It comes with a 14 days free trial

You don’t have to pay for it right away. I mean, what if you don’t particularly enjoy it? That will be a whole $200 wasted because it does not support month by month payment. To prevent that awful feeling of buyer’s remorse, the app comes with a 14 days free trial that you should totally use.

 

It encourages daily feedback and support

The app provides feedback to you throughout the day. The app keeps track of all your food and exercise logs. But that’s not all. It even gives you suggestions in areas you can improve.

Noom

What I find concerning 

 

It is somewhat expensive.

Noom costs about $50 every month. A full membership lasts for four months or 16 weeks, so expect to shell out more than $200 for the duration. There are also additional costs for extra services like customized meal plans and exercises. I highly recommend that you take advantage of the free 14 day trial so you can know if this program is suitable for you.

 

It can be stressful

Let’s face it, not many people are cut out for the daily logging and tracking of food. This mandatory activity can be cumbersome and quite discouraging to keep up with.

Try Noom’s 14 Day Trial

 

In conclusion

Noom is all about ensuring that you are in the proper frame of mind to lose weight the healthy way. The tons of support it provides, makes it easy for anyone, whether beginner or expert, to begin their fitness journey with confidence. However, how well the app works still depends on the individual using it. As long as you stick with it, you are certain of achieving your weight loss goals in no time.

Natalie Jill Fitness

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.

 

Natalie Jill Fitness

 

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.

Natalie Jill Fitness

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.

 

Benefits you should expect from the program

  • As long as you strictly adhere to the program, here are some benefits that you stand to gain.
  • A weight loss of about 7 pounds at the full expiration of 7 days.
  • A much more reduced craving for eating every time.
  • An improvement in your mobility.
  • A reduction in stress levels.
  • A healthy and satisfying sex life.
  • Elimination or reduction of inflammation or bloat that makes you look big.
  • A reversal in the aging process.

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.

 

Last words

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.

The Mayo Clinic Diet

How Effective Is It Really?

Can The Mayo Clinic Diet really help you lose weight? This program is designed by experts to help you lose weight, keep it off, and change your lifestyle to be healthier and more productive. I’m reviewing what I found with this diet and how it can provide the results you want this summer!

Overview

The Mayo Clinic diet is a holistic approach to weight loss and it aims every part of a healthy lifestyle. For me, I loved the personalized meal plans and fitness tips, but there is a little bit of everything in this affordable subscription to suit anyone. It’s a full-featured weight loss plan that makes an effort to educate and train your habits as much as it does motivate you to continue with your diet.

Pros:

There is a ton of weight loss services out there. This is what I found  that really stood out and impressed me:

  • User guide helped me understand all the parts of this program, so I felt like I got full use out of it
  • Medical professionals made the program so I trusted the method
  • No fad dieting is included, and I wasn’t hungry at all during the program
  • Everything was personalized to my specific needs and goals
  • Lots of resources included, like support groups and tracking sheets
  • Tons of motivational content

Cons:

Like anything, a few things could have been done better. The parts that I felt weren’t up to par were:

  • Some of the features felt basic, and I’ve seen similar ones before
  • This is very targeted towards beginners wanting to lose weight, there isn’t much for maintenance or seasoned dieters
  • The pay period is long and expensive up-front
  • It can get repetitive if you’ve done a lot of fitness programs before

 

To summarize, this program isn’t some top-secret look into healthy eating and fitness. A lot of what it teaches is pretty commonly known and their resources can be found in other programs or even online for free, but this diet will help you implement them.

If you’re a big self-starter or you’ve been through the weight loss game a few times before, some of the best parts of this diet will be repetitive to you. This program is definitely geared to those who aren’t knowledgeable about what it takes to be healthy.

You pay more for the coaching and motivational aspect than you do the actual weight loss part, but either way – the results add up!

 

The Goal

The approach that the Mayo Clinic takes with this diet is pretty standard but functional. Most of us, me included, understand the basics of weight loss. We need to eat fewer calories than we burn. Healthy food is better than junk and snacks. Working out is important if we want to lose weight.

We understand these things, but the trouble comes when we try to apply this knowledge to our actual lives. On paper, it seems easy, but you know as well as I do that isn’t so simple. The Mayo Clinic uses two phases to help you ease into the whole weight loss game and uses a lot of features and supportive tips to keep you going.

 

You’ll learn about how to create healthy eating habits and fitness routines in the first phase.

 

In the second phase, you put all those lessons to good use and start shedding pounds.

 

The process is a little slow-burn, but that’s much better for your body than diets that promise you’ll lose several pounds in a short period of time.

 

At the end of the program, you’ll have lost weight if you followed their meal plans and fitness schedules. It’s simple math.

More than that, you’ll have learned how to take better care of your body, which in turn will help you keep that weight you lost off. That’s what really benefitted me the most. I liked that the program didn’t expect me to mindlessly follow it’s rigorous instructions without understanding how it helped – The Mayo Clinic’s goal is to educate.

 

Lose up to 6 to 10 pounds in 2 weeks in a safe and healthy way! Try now!

 

Benefits Of The Mayo Clinic Diet

In the first couple of weeks of using this diet, you’ll see a big weight change. They say up to 10lbs can be lost within 14 days, and that’s incredible… but also a little suspicious to me.

 

For the rest of the program, this diet focuses on staying healthy and active, promising a weight loss of 1-2lbs a week, but I continued to see a little more than that for about a month.

 

After that, you’ll fall into a pretty steady 1lb loss per 7 days. That’s standard, and considered a healthy way to lose weight.

Does It Work?

This diet was designed by medical professionals, so all of the guidance and information you get is true and proven.

 

How much weight you lose is solely dependant on your ability to follow the program, but I found this diet to be a lot easier to stick with than some others.

 

Truthfully, the science is simple. The apps and meal plans and workouts help you consume less calories than you’re burning on a daily basis, which means you will lose weight. There is no magical meal plans that promise miracle results, but instead healthy lifestyle changes that are medically proven to work.

Pricing

The way this diet handles the subscription payments is by using a quarterly system. Compared to other services, it’s really cheap in the long-run but might seem like a lot of money upfront. I broke it down and realized I was only paying less than $5 a week, which is pretty good for what all they offer.

 

You pay $52 for 13 weeks worth of full access to the Mayo Clinic Diet program. It can be canceled anytime and will renew automatically when your subscription expires after those 13 weeks.

 

Since the Mayo Clinic Diet estimates that you can lose up to 1-2lbs a week, you can expect to lose at least 20lbs by the end of your 13 weeks. Like I said, the program focuses on education as much as results, so you probably won’t even have to renew the subscription a second time.

 

Personally, I did, because I liked all the helpful information and hundreds of available recipes included, but you’ll be given all the tools to continue your weight loss journey without paying for another cycle.

Free Assessment

Before you have to pay a cent for this diet, you can do a very quick, simple intake questionnaire. Just answer some basic health-related questions about your diet and fitness levels and the website tells you the 4 areas that they will help you improve on to lose weight and get healthy.

By answering very hard, hard, easy, or very easy on the questions the survey asks, this diet can pinpoint your problem areas and give you a little peek into what the program will do for you specifically. I appreciated this feature because it gave me the confidence I needed to trust it was worth my money.

Supportive Features

Any diet subscription needs to be equipped with everything you need to reach your goal. Some offer meal delivery or diet plans, others have fitness trackers – The Mayo Clinic Diet has a tiny bit of everything.

Meal Plans

Unlike a lot of other diets, the Mayo Clinic Diet doesn’t actually provide meals or scheduled plans. Instead, you get access to tons of easy, nutritious recipes and meal plan guidelines based on your gender, weight, and goals. Everything is personalized based on the information you submitted during the profile creation phase.

 

This diet plan helps you set your calorie goals, track calorie intake, and focus on nutritious choices instead of unfulfilling foods. It’s all about changing your eating habits and retraining your cravings so you can keep off the weight you lose in the long run. Controlling your portion sizes is probably the best feature when it comes to the meal plans since I’ve always struggled with that part of dieting.

Fitness Programs

You’re probably aware that fitness is a big part of weight loss, but if you’re like me, you have the tendency to be a little… lazy. I don’t like to put tons of research or effort into learning how to work out or how much. The Mayo Clinic Diet has a bunch of stuff included that is helpful for that, like curating personal workout plans, walking guides and recommendations, and fitness tips for your weight and goals. Yoga can always be incorporated into any workout plan to help someone staring out. 

 

I found the included fitness programs to be great for me, a beginner, to working out. The creators made sure to educate me on what exercises I should be doing to burn the calories I needed to burn in order to reach my weight loss goal.

Helpful Tools

Motivation is the key element to the Mayo Clinic Diet, and it’s wonderful. All sorts of interactive worksheets and apps are available to keep you on track and they educate you on health as you go. It’s really nice to feel supported through your whole weight loss journey, and not many other subscriptions will do that for you.

 

You get a Habit Tracker, Fitness Planner, Journals, and Weight Pyramid, all tools designed by professionals to get you closer to your goals. These things can be found with other diet programs, but I found that this diet helped streamline them and simplify it for my basic understanding.

Results

Your final outcome depends entirely on your ability to stick to your meal plans and continue working out as the program requires. Their guidelines will walk you through – literally – how to lose up to 2lbs a week in a healthy way, and it’s 100% possible to do so.

 

In fact, I found myself losing around 5lbs in the beginning, thanks to water weight.

 

If you follow this program for the full 13 weeks in the subscription cycle, you can lose about 20lbs of weight, and learn a lot. These results can be achieved by just eating healthy and working out because the Mayo Clinic diet doesn’t feature any fasting or trendy food eliminations.

Is It Worth It?

A lot of people like me can benefit from the Mayo Clinic Diet. It’s a comprehensive 13-week program that follows the basic science behind weight loss with a healthy lifestyle. There is no extreme dieting or terrifying exercise regimens, but instead a strong focus on just clean eating and active living.

Lose up to 6 to 10 pounds in 2 weeks in a safe and healthy way! Try now!

For me, it was worth the purchase. If you need help with motivation and the basics of changing your lifestyle and want to shed about 20lbs or so, try this diet. The guidelines and plans are solid, effective, and easy to follow.
