\n\nPeople Who Viewed Beyond Diet Also Viewed Trim Down Club.\n\n


The Beyond Diet program was co-created by self-proclaimed nutritionist and exercise specialist, Isabel De Los Rios in 2008. It’s based on determining your metabolic “type” to determine what foods will best work for you, then eating to match that type. So customized meal plans based on a formula, with online recipes, community, and coaching thrown in. There are also three additional programs, available for an additional monthly fee, which further customize the program and allow more access—Beyond Blood Sugar, Live Smart, and BD Super Cleanse. That’s in essence the diet.\r\n

Exercise is not strongly emphasized in the Beyond Diet, though; which is interesting, because exercise and exercise science is De Los Rios’ background.

\r\nDe Los Rios has written many Beyond Diet books dedicated to the original premise and then focused to help particular demographics lose weight, including diabetics. It’s not just about food, though.\r\n\r\nWith a Rutgers University-degree in exercise physiology, and as a certified strength and conditioning as well as lifestyle coach, De Los Rios says the Beyond Diet is just that: beyond the dieting part. Her book, The Diet Solution Program, explains the program and that—coupled with her own New Jersey-based fitness center—moving the body is a part of the diet. Exercise is not strongly emphasized in the Beyond Diet, though; which is interesting, because exercise and exercise science is De Los Rios’ background.\r\n\r\nAnyway, De Los Rios says she’s\r\n

…helped over 250,000 people worldwide lose weight, improve their health and change their lives for the better. Co-founder of Beyond Diet, Isabel is recognized by industry experts as the #1 “go-to-girl” in Fat Burning Nutrition, employing a unique, cutting edge approach to nutrition that has produced results for many individuals frustrated by other methods.[1] 

\r\nLet’s see.\r\n

Beyond Diet Claims and Plan


But again, many reviewers say there are continuous upsells of other Beyond Diet add-ons, books, and the like. You can ignore those emails, I suppose.

\r\nSo Beyond Diet focuses on nutritional education based on metabolic type, and sells the program—which includes the metabolic calculation, fat-burning meal plans, shopping guides, Beyond Diet recipes, and support. Should you decide to become a Beyond Diet subscriber, be prepared—because the upsells are ongoing.\r\n\r\nThe original retail price (um, ok) for the one-time membership fee is $97—but when you click to purchase, you get $10 off and “free gifts,” which is actually the program:\r\n


  • Full-color hard copy of the Beyond Diet manual  
  • \r\n

  • Quick Start Guide, “to lose your first 10 pounds”  
  • \r\n

  • Desserts Done Right recipe book  
  • \r\n

  • Access to the online program  
  • \r\n

  • Oh, and free shipping
  • \r\n

\r\nSo bottom line, it’s $47 for one year plus a 60-day money back guarantee. [2]\r\n\r\nBut again, many reviewers say there are continuous upsells of other Beyond Diet add-ons, books, and the like. You can ignore those emails, I suppose.\r\n\r\nI noticed that the Live Smart program on the site, at $14.95 additional a month unlocks access to more meal-planning help and shows how to use online tools. Some folks complained that they paid the $47 and then were charged $14.95 every month on their credit cards, so be careful what you click on. [3]\r\n\r\nThe Beyond Blood Sugar and BD Super Cleanse are other programs for additional fees which, honestly look suspiciously like the one before with just more access—and, as you already know, you can find most of this kind of nutrition information, weight loss or meal-planning help, and fitness tracking tools online and in apps for free. Keep that in mind. [4] [5]\r\n

De Los Rios claims the metabolism boost based on better eating habits will give you more energy and generally just make you feel better all around.

\r\nBeyond Diet claims that as long as you follow the meal plans, you “set yourself up for long term success.” With the meal plans, access to recipes and Beyond Diet community support which consists of 500 members, Beyond Diet-certified coaches and “Isabel herself” to cheer you on you’ll begin to “see results.” Nothing specific, just results. [6]\r\n\r\nAnd, the meal plans are designed from your taking the Beyond Diet Metabolism Test to “find out which foods and portions are best for your metabolism so that you lose the weight fast.” Also, you have to use your “Success Journal” tracking tool to assess progress.\r\n\r\nYou cannot access these tools without a membership, but I found screenshots in reviews. You eat three meals, two snacks, and are encouraged to take an Omega-3 supplement. And those meals consist of a lot of (expensive) organic whole foods including very lean proteins (meats and fish); you get the vast majority of your carbs from fruits and vegetables. Virtually no grains (bye, bread and pasta) and you get your fat from seeds and nuts. Very little dairy save raw, organic, no artificial sweeteners (that’s fine), and no processed foods of any kind. (Good with that, too.)\r\n\r\nDe Los Rios claims the metabolism boost based on better eating habits will give you more energy and generally just make you feel better all around. And besides weight loss, blood sugar levels will be better, blood pressure will improve, and your good/bad cholesterol levels will improve as well.\r\n

…But I did find a scientific review of her diet specifically.

\r\nBeyond Diet has a massive following on Facebook—albeit followers can be purchased, so there’s no way to know exactly how many folks are real, but the page says the combined Likes and Follows near two million. And De Los Rios posts frequently, including a Facebook Live as recent as July 13. [7]\r\n\r\nBut it’s not just Facebook; it’s YouTube, Instagram, and Pinterest. [8] [9] [10]\r\n\r\nAnd you can contact Beyond Diet via Facebook Messenger. De Los Rios seems legit. And her diet appears to be as well. She says as much: “The Beyond Diet principles are supported by 700+ studies published in credible, peer-reviewed scientific journals, because our passion is helping people become success stories – without health risks and without long term side effects.” [11]\r\n\r\nSeven-hundred-plus studies is a lot of research. I’m pretty sure she’s referring to general research about good nutrition, blood sugar, processed foods, bad carbs, trans fats—you get the idea. But I did find a scientific review of her diet specifically.\r\n

The Science (or Lack Thereof) Behind the Beyond Diet

\r\nWebMD calls Beyond Diet a “holistic diet and lifestyle plan that combines foods matched to your metabolic type along with a mind-body connection.” But WebMD, and science in general, has problems with her theory that you can lose weight only once you’ve determined your metabolic type and then calculated calories needed to lose weight eating your specific carbs, protein, and fat. WebMD also takes issue with other Beyond Diet claims:\r\n

The Diet Solution is based on the theory that losing weight starts with an understanding of your body’s metabolic type, calorie requirements, and specific amounts of carbs, protein, and fat in your meals. … [However,] 


Nutrition experts agree about the importance of good intentions, motivation, and staying positive while dieting. But beyond that, The Diet Solution falls short of evidence for many of its claims. 


“It is based upon unsubstantiated, unscientific, and potentially dangerous advice. Therefore I would not recommend the program,” says American Dietetic Association spokeswoman and Washington, D.C.-based nutrition counselor Katherine Tallmadge, MA, RD. 


Tallmadge adds that the author is not a nutrition expert qualified or licensed to practice and her sources are not from peer-reviewed scientific journals. … Tallmadge agrees with De Los Rios that you need to focus on the source of calories to lose weight. But Tallmadge says it has nothing to do with metabolic typing. [12] 


A number of the claims made by De Los Rios—who is not a dietician, much less a physician—including that grains and dairy are bad, are swiftly dispelled.

\r\nOne of the best things before starting any diet is to do a little research. A good first stop is a visit to the National Institutes of Health page (NIH) that dispels nutrition and exercise myths. A number of the claims made by De Los Rios—who is not a dietician, much less a physician—including that grains and dairy are bad, are swiftly dispelled. [13]\r\n

Word on the Street About Beyond Diet

\r\nSo how about Beyond Diet reviews?\r\n\r\nThe 2012 De Los Rios book Pure Fat Burning Fuel: Follow This Simple, Heart Healthy Path To Total Fat Loss (The Beyond Diet, Volume 1) has 280 Amazon reviews with an average rating of 3.4 out of 5. Over half of those 280 rate it 4 stars or better, but the 3-star and 1-star percentages match the 4-star. And some of the 5-star ratings don’t indicate the customer has done anything more than read the book—they haven’t actually put the program into practice. [14]\r\n

But what about actual dieters who are not on the Facebook page or the website? Not fans on, which is a good site for real, if not very recent, reviews.

\r\nSo let’s go across the spectrum.\r\n\r\n“Continag” (2016, 5 stars) loves it: “I LOVE THIS BOOK! It’s so information to get heathly. I’ve lost so much weight using beyond diet. I love all this book! If you want to lost weight try this book! You will lost so much! Thank You for this book!” [15]\r\n\r\n“Ann Wilkinson” (2014, 4 stars) said:\r\n

I liked the principles of the book. It is similar to Dash , but does not eliminate fruits and all breads the first 2 weeks. I do not have time to make eggs every day and I did not like the mini quiche with frozen spinach in the micro-wave. So- I liked Isabels’ suggestion for Ezekial bread. I thought the book was informative and learned about organic foods and the dirty dozen. [16] 

\r\nAn anonymous but verified customer (2013, 3 stars) said:\r\n

She does have pretty good info and you definitely can lose weight on this diet. What I didn’t like about it is what I don’t like about most diet books is that they don’t provide enough information about the science, the why the foods work this way, which seems kind of patronizing to me. I was confused about her stance on carbohydrates too. She lists the grains that are good for you, but then posts a diet with no grains at all… I think there’s some good info here but she could have been more thorough. She has recipes which is nice too… I would call this good but I wasn’t dazzled by its greatness. [17] (emphasis added) 

\r\n“Bookworm” (2013, 2 stars) found it lacking: “Thought I was getting more info. like meal planning, which foods to prioritize. This book only tells half the story. I thought it was going to have the whole A-Z diet in it.” [18]\r\n\r\n“O. F.” (2015, 1 star) says, “A vague publication, designed to lure readers into buying her other books. Don’t bother. Buy an exercise ball and cut back on carbs.” [19]\r\n

And “Joe James” (2013, 1 star) wasn’t impressed at all: “Not worth reading. This is a compendium of bumper sticker information. A hash and rehash of information that even the majority of uninformed voters knows and prefers to ignore.”

\r\nAnd “Joe James” (2013, 1 star) wasn’t impressed at all: “Not worth reading. This is a compendium of bumper sticker information. A hash and rehash of information that even the majority of uninformed voters knows and prefers to ignore.” [20]\r\n\r\nOuch.\r\n

But what about actual dieters who are not on the Facebook page or the website? Not fans on, which is a good site for real, if not very recent, reviews. [21]

\r\n“JhenS40,” “NurseJFW,” and “Toniwynn” all agree the Beyond Diet has information available for free online and isn’t worth paying for; in fact, two of these reviewers claim they were scammed.\r\n\r\nBut “JhenS40” says what I think many have concluded:\r\n\r\nThis is basically a knock off of the Whole30 program. You can go to the Whole30 Website for FREE and get the same plan. Don’t waste your money to get The Beyond Diet Plan. It’s essentially eating WHOLE, NATURAL FOODS found in NATURE, no additives, preservatives, or hormones. Check out Whole30 for basically the same plan for FREE. [21] \r\n\r\nBut these reviewers seem to be in the minority, if you count the millions following the diet and De Los Rios.\r\n

Alternatives to The Beyond Diet

\r\nThe Beyond Diet has a wide (no pun intended) following, but newbies doing research often check out these diets, too.\r\n


  1. Trim Down Club (Recommended)
  2. \r\n

  3. Whole30
  4. \r\n

  5. Weight Watchers
  6. \r\n

  7. 21 Day Fix
  8. \r\n

  9. Paleo Diet
  10. \r\n


Trim Down Club vs Beyond Diet


Anyway, in the Beyond Diet, once your type has been determined (eye roll), a fat-burning meal plan is created and you get recipes and support; all for $97.

\r\nDefinitely advise Trim Down Club over the Beyond Diet or any of these and here’s why:  Like the Beyond Diet, and many others, the Trim Down Club starts with some nutritional reeducation: eat this, not that. The Beyond Diet too is about nutritional education, but here’s where it becomes gimmicky, and also the part that hooks people (Isabel De Los Rios is an expert and has tons of followers so I’ll go with her plan): The Beyond Diet begins with determining metabolic type with a gadget-y online tool. Recall that actual registered and certified experts and health professionals say that her program is not based on any real science and that losing weight has nothing to do with metabolic typing. Anyway, in the Beyond Diet, once your type has been determined (eye roll), a fat-burning meal plan is created and you get recipes and support; all for $97. Listen, despite the whole determine-your-metabolic-type, there’s sound nutritional advice here, including avoiding processed foods, junk foods, and added sugar. But the prohibition on all grains, many of which are solid nutritionally, is a no go. Plus, there’s not a thing she talks about that cannot be found online for free. The Trim Down Club, on the other hand, is all about eating whole, fresh, nutrient-rich foods and pairing that with exercise; the advice any nutritionist worth their salt (again, no pun intended) would give to folks to get fit, trim, and stay healthy. The Trim Down Club’s foundation is whole, fresh, fat-burning food for you and your whole family; no more buying separate foods, especially the so-called diet prepared, processed, keeping-you-fat foods found in every aisle of your supermarket.\r\n\r\nLike the Beyond Diet, the Trim Down Club believes in accountability and support, hence the word ‘club.’ It’s a vast network of people like you and me, all together in a supportive and active community.  So while De Los Rios has her followers, the Trim Down Club has its members, 1 million strong. Oh, and it’s cheap; about the same as pair of movie tickets and a money-back guarantee.\r\n

The Trim Down Club’s foundation is whole, fresh, fat-burning food for you and your whole family;


Whole30 vs Beyond Diet

\r\nThe Whole30 pops up too when searching for the Beyond Diet. And like the Beyond Diet, Whole30 is focused on low carbs. Now, that’s a vast, wide, and sweeping understatement: the Whole30 is a highly restrictive, hard-to-follow and a bottom of the barrel diet, as per the very oft searched for U.S. News & World Report’s Best Diets. Yes, Whole30 was 38 out of 38. It’s beyond the Beyond Diet.\r\n

Weight Watchers vs Beyond Diet

\r\nWeight Watchers, which may be one of the most well-known of diets and certainly shows up when doing a diet search, is a tried, tested, and true diet plan. You will lose weight on Weight Watchers. I know this first hand. Not once, not twice, but three times I lost weight on WW. Two problems: the obvious, as I’ve just pointed out, the weight returns unless you have completely changed your lifestyle and eating habits. Some celeb endorsers have been successful on Weight Watchers and kept the weight off, but they likely have personal chefs, too. The other problem is all the packaged, processed foods with Weight Watchers. If you’ve been on it, you know you’ve had a freezer-full of entrees and a cupboard full of snacks. It’s all filled with stuff you definitely should not be eating. Something the Beyond Diet stresses, but what the Trim Down Clubs teaches you about and helps you avoid every day with its built-in support network and up-to-date nutritional education.\r\n

21 Day Fix vs Beyond Diet

\r\nYou’ve probably seen the 21 Day Fix appear as a people-also-look-for diet in your search. The 21 Day Fix and the Beyond Diet could not be more different. Beyond wants to change the way you eat and the 21 Day Fix is just that: a quick fix. This is a no-brainer. If you want to lose weight to fit into a favorite dress or suit you’ve (cough, cough) outgrown, maybe it’s for you.\r\n

Paleo Diet vs Beyond Diet

\r\nIf the Paleo Diet didn’t pop up in your search, I’d be surprised because like the Beyond Diet, it’s another low, or no, carb diet offering; and another fad. The Paleo Diet wants us to eat like prehistoric humans (no disrespect to our ancestors, but I’ll take Roman, Greek, and Egyptian cultures’ food over that of folks hiding in caves during eclipses and worshipping woolly mammoths after they drove them over cliffs), subsisting on foods that mimic what the original hunter-gatherers ate—except the insects part; that’s left out and interestingly, from what I have read, was as integral part of their diet and as important as foraged foods and scavenged animals. So, no to Paleo.\r\n

The Bottom Line: Is the Beyond Diet Worth a Try?



\r\nSome good nutritional advice, like no processed junk and cut all the sugar. But that’s about it. There are plenty of good-for-you grains, so cutting those is a deal-breaker for most people. And there’s not a thing here that you cannot find online for free, including her Facebook page. I’m with O.F. up there.\r\n

An award-wining investigative journalist for more 30 years, one of the things I never really wrote about was health, wellness, and fitness. Ironically, I've been overweight my whole life so I know diets. Intimately. And, having been a​n editor and writer for a​ fitness magazine ​recently, I learned a thing or 10. Now, I'm committed to exploring the many weight loss options out there to try to help folks make good choices.
  • CBUX

    I think this review is a bit unfair. First, you way overstate the issue of metabolism typing. Yes, there is a means of identifying your metabolism type but it is of very negligible importance here. I have been on Beyond Diet for 6 months and intend it to be my pattern of eating for the rest of my life. Degree or not – her science is solid and absolutely works! Her principles of nutrition and weight loss align with what I had already learned and believed about nutrition = most of which I had learned from medical doctors who specialize in nutrition and aren’t afraid to think outside the mainstream of the old conventional wisdom on the subject. I have never had a weight problem until the last few years. I just started gaining weight for no known reason and previous methods of weight loss seemed to have no effect. I was skeptical that it would work for me but wanted to believe all the testimonials about huge weight loss. Within the first 2 weeks I lost 10 pounds and just kept losiing – without ever feeling hungry. The food is delicious, high quality, nutritious, and well balanced. I don’t see how anybody can argue with that. I never had any billing problems and believe them to be an ethical, honest company.

  • Sandy Carpenter

    Same thing happened to me. No way did I sign up for that but I didn’t save a screen shot so , no proof?

  • Sandy Carpenter

    Watch your credit card bill. I don’t think I signed up for $ 115 per month . Tricky, tricky

  • ariesoh77

    I signed up for the program over 4 years ago and paid the $40 or $50 bucks, whatever it was at the time for the basic membership. I did not get any extras. Since, I haven’t been charged a penny.\n\nWhen I first joined the program, I changed my lifestyle to only eat healthy, all natural/organic whole foods. I cut sugar, fried food and processed food out of my diet. My cholesterol went from bad to excellent in less then 3 months and I felt great. I had energy and was never sleepy during the day. I lost 20 lbs in a few months without working out at all. I followed the plan for about a year or so and ended up getting into a relationship with a man who did not eat healthy, I went back to eating badly, smoking and drinking soda. Needless to say I gained all the weight back and then some. \n\nNow that I’m tired of being overweight, I have gone back to the plan to eat healthy and also have started working out this time around since I need to lose about 50 lbs. \n\nI think beyond diet is a great resource, there is a lot of information and education on the site. Even if I don’t follow it 100% I still feel way better when I’m eating healthy and 5-6 times per day. This is not a diet, it’s a way of life and you can eat pretty much anything that’s healthy. If you are not a big fan of fruits or vegetables, try ORGANIC it makes such a huge difference in the taste.

  • Debbie Reed

    file a dispute with your card company if you can not get a refund or adjustment.

  • Michelle Jazenski Brad

    this company is an unethical Do NOT GIVE YOUR CC. THE PROGRAM IS WORTH A READ BUT IF YOU CLICK NO THANK YOU TO MAINTENANCE YOU COULD STILL GET CHARGED>IF YOU CALL THEY WILL NOT HELP AFTER inital 90.00 plus 40.00 I was charged for 15 months ( I did not read my bill total over 400.00 ) I did not know i was being charged I was never on the site after the first day and was denied a refund because I should have known better per the CS REP. ASKED FOR A MANGER no luck SCAM SCAM SCAM only after your money

  • We are glad to hear that the program works well for you and you are happy with the results, thank you for your feedback!

  • Suzi Hayward

    I joined Beyond Diet over 2 years ago. They charged me $40 up front for access to their website, there are specific things I can upgrade to, but as of yet….have not I have never had any problems with them billing my account for more money than they should but I think it is important to realize that some of the products recommended take you to a different site and are their affiliates. If you are over charged, it may be from that site…not Beyond Diet. This did happen to me; however, I returned the product and was given a full refund (fairly timely) I have found weight loss to be a great success using this program. I also want to address some concerns here, they are:\n\n1) The diet only works while on it and when you get off, you gain weight – this is true of any diet. A diet is just that, a diet. In any diet, if you go back to eating the way you were, you will gain weight! Beyond Diet is truly a lifestyle change.\n\n2) You lose the weight slowly – again, this is the way you are intended to lose weight. Losing weight fast just isn’t healthy.\n\nMy number one complaint about Beyond Diet is that it is really common sense, we should know how to eat healthy and portion control……but for a one time fee of $40, I appreciate logging in and having it track my progress AND for the occasional reminder that we all need.

  • Carolyn Doss

    Deceptive Deceptive Deceptive!!!!!!!! Don’t give them your credit card number!!!!

    • consumerscompare

      Hi Carolyn, we are sorry you have not had a good experience with the program. Let us know if you were able to resolve the issues with them.

  • Ramona Janzegers Pippin

    I couldn’t stand trying to go through that video just to get to the point so I’m not interested from the start I just want the bottom line which I will not get joining this plan . dont have time to watch DVDs and read all that crap I have common sense I just want some good bottom-line advice and like you said, for free.

  • consumerscompare

    Dear Kimmi, thank you for sharing your experience with the Beyond Diet program. Congratulations on your weight loss success!

  • consumerscompare

    Dear Judi, you are very welcome. Let us know if you find a good diet program that works for you. We love to hear feedback on the different programs available.

  • Shawna

    I did this program a little over 6 months ago. Had a good success, maybe not as good as I expected but did lose 15 pounds in 2 months. Unfortunately gained that plus 5 back. It’s just not sustainable loss, at least wasn’t for me.

  • Dean in SF

    Lots of claims, very little substantiation. Oh, and she doesn’t know how to spell impostor.

    • Lynn DeLima

      0r wallet (wallett ugh)

  • Barbara Burke

    As someone who has, like most of us, tried many diets, supplements, etc. and failed I find beyond diet to be the best solution yet. I am losing weight with beyond diet, and I feel great. I am learning how to eat right, and there are dozens of recipes available. I’m not much into the motivational messages or tips, but I love the daily meal plans. I use them for guidance. The $50 you mentioned spending is far less than all the programs in the top 10. Who hasn’t put out over $250 plus to try to lose weight. I realize this program may not work for everyone, but it is perfect for me.

  • Kara Brown Guinn

    Ridiculous program and impossible to cancel because they do not answer their phone or respond to emails! I have to cancel my credit card and have one reissued to stop payment to this company. Buyer Beware! \n\nTheir cancellation policy is below but they do not follow it!

    • John

      Agreed. Purchased product on 2/21/16 and have yet to receive any product. They don’t even have a record of my account, but had no problem billing my credit card. What a rip off.

  • Laura

    Beyond Diet is not working for me. I have completed 3 weeks on the Protein plan and I’m completely frustrated. My husband thinks I’ve been scammed. I’ve put so much effort in, reading the entire book/s, researching via the forums when I have questions, learning and purchasing the recommended foods and their classifications, etc., shopping several times a week (and spending twice as much as usually spend on groceries), documenting everything daily (food, exercise and health), testing recipes, and more. I have lost basically zero pounds – which is completely demotivating. Maybe it’s only designed to work for those with a lot of weight to lose? Not sure, but what I am sure of is Beyond Diet does not work for me. I have about 15-20 pounds to lose and testing this diet out has put me behind about 4 weeks. I’m pretty ticked off actually because of the time and resources wasted.

    • Amanda Steels

      That is how I feel too. I am glad I am not the only one. I have about 15 pounds to lose before mid March and was hoping this would be it. It really is not as healthy as I though it would be. Cheese, bread etc is allowed which I don’t think is a way to lose weight. Was hopeful though…

  • Jessica Loper

    I have seen so many adds from Beyond Diet, that I have decided to research a little more since it sounded like something different from all the other diets I have tried. Sadly, this looks more like a marketing tool to make you buy more stuff.

  • yi

    HI there, \n\n My husband just paid money to buy your program. But he is not happy the program after paid the money $120. I have tried to reached you. But you keep sending us back the same email and asked us to call a number which is not exist. It will be nice if you could someone could call us or please give us a online chat link. Because we need our money back. The program completely is not worthy the money. PLEASE CONTACT ME.

  • Lynnette

    Does anyone know what is the best way to contact them to get the refund?

    • consumerscompare

      Hi Lynnette, you can contact them via e-mail [email protected] or call them toll free number 1-800-815-1941.

      • Michele Santos-Lewris

        Unfortunately, they don’t respond when they hear you want a refund. I have contacted them by phone and email and they just keep giving me the run around telling me to give it more time. I stated, that I wanted a refund and it was ignored. Please don’t promote this scam.

      • Colleen

        I have tried this number multiple times. I either get a busy signal or it puts me on hold for 15 minutes than hangs up on me. I have also emailed multiple times. I am very disappointed in their customer service.

    • Michele Santos-Lewris

      Good luck! I have been calling them for over a week. They don’t return your call and you can only leave a message. I’ve emailed them FOUR times and they just give me the run around and have NOT refunded my money. It’s clearly a scam. A reputable company would refund your money. Taking this to the Better Business Bureau and posting where ever I can.

    $47 is just to access the site. All other books are a seperate cost.The advertising technique is shady I would not recommend this sort of business.

  • Melinda Carols

    What Beyond Diet does is simply explains the common knowledge of diet and exercise. I have tried many diets and jumped on this one thinking “well, this might be something completely new and might jump start my weight loss!”Wrong!!!! There was nothing in the book that I already did not know. Their newsletters are extremely annoying and so hyped up that I had to unsubscribe after just one week. Save your money and maybe go have a healthy lunch instead.

  • Brooke Mullner

    They have the most annoying adds and they are EVERYWHERE!!! I feel like if a company has to work this hard to get into people’s faces it might not have much to offer otherwise.


    Buyer Beware!!! I signed up for this “one time” charge of 47$ for a \n”lifetime” membership. It is actually is a yearly charge. Also they keep\n offering these stupid \nadd-ons and when you try to click “decline \noffer” it still upgrades your order. Truly frustrating. So I ended up \npaying over $150 and had no response to my e-mails. Tried calling like \nat least 6 times before I got to someone. They refunded my money within a\n few days.

    Besides some recipes it really doesn’t provide more information than I already knew. Yes, we all know do not eat crap but that is not as easy as that

  • Serrah Saradarian Baboujian

    How come no one answer my phone calls? What gives you the right to take money off my account without my permission… Shame on you

    • Michele Santos-Lewris

      Exactly!! They did the same thing to me and others. IT’S A SCAM!

  • ddc4289

    It is very punishing, and even though I’ve lost 12 pounds in two weeks, if you make a small mistake at the dinner table, the scale screams at you in the morning. Also you must exercise in conjunction with this or any other diet.

  • Babs Phillips

    This review is completely wrong and biased. I’ve been a member for a month and have never felt restricted or hungry, plus I never have cravings or desires to eat what I used to. We don’t eat according to our body type…that’s ridiculous and couldn’t be more incorrect…we eat according to our METABOLISM type. So until you actually learn what this is ACTUALLY about, you can’t give it such an incorrect review. We avoid sugar except for natural sugars (as in fruit) and processed foods, and we eat as much organically grown produce and grass fed, organic meats as possible as available in whatever area you live in. I dropped 8 pounds in 3 weeks just by getting away from the unhealthy, processed foods and by giving my body the nutrients it needs. This is NOT a diet…it’s a principle…give your body the nutrients it needs and it responds by losing weight and changing for the better. A lot of members say they can’t eat all the food their allowed…that it’s too much.

      Come back and talk to people after you have been on it for 8 months or so. As it is now you sound like one of those people that are easily brain washed! You believe in Elron Hubbard as well? Goose step to you morning meal? Sounds like you do!

      • Boosmom96

        Ricknick59 could you please explain why you trash the people who seem to like this plan, but offer no reason for your comments.

        • ricknick59

          Because she is trashing someone that didn’t like a diet plan and sounds like a cult member or a liberal. She has not been on the diet long enough to be making those comments. And why do I have to explain anything to you! Are you not smart enough to figure it out for yourself or are you another diet plan cult member?

          • Herb Montgomery

            Liberal?? You sound like an angry fat-butt there Rick…… \n

          • ricknick59

            And you have to be some old fart with his head so far up his butt he needs an extra glass of prune juice in the morning just to pull it out in the morning for a breath of fresh air! Herb must be short for herbicide, explains the toxicness of your breath. Or do they just call you butt breath for short?

          • Herb Montgomery

            Thanks for making my case that you’re a bit angry there, Ricky. I’ve already had a brisk walk this morning; I’d suggest you do the same. Sounds as though you are a tad low on endorphins.

          • ricknick59

            If making your case is stating facts about you then you are welcome! Naw, just a bit fed up of morons! But don’t worry nature has a way of thinning you people out!

          • Herb Montgomery

            You should look up the words fact and slander; they have different meanings. You might also think about some medical help with your anger issues. The Beyond Diet seems a bit overpriced and over hyped for what you get, but that’s my opinion only. WW and a brisk daily walk has so far worked for me. YMMV

          • suzy Pick

            I think you are the moron Ricknick, or is rick the dick….

        • Connie Bunn

          I thought the same thing. What a Dick! Pun intended.

      • Maddy

        It’s L. Ron Hubbard.

        • ricknick59

          Not sure what you have been snorting but you do know that comet isn’t good for you! It will burn out what little is left of your brain! WAIT! Maybe you never really had a brain! That explains it. Never mind then!

    • PhillyGirl

      Do you work for the company?

    • Barbara Burke

      Thank you Babs; I feel the same way, and I don’t work for the company either. There is a plan out there for everyone, I hope, and this just happens to be the one that works for me. Glad it is working for you too.

  • Triedtrue

    Very disappointed in beyond diet. I thought I would have good information and diet choices that might help. What I got was looooooooooooong articles full of blather (longwinded but providing no helpful information) and a blizzard of emails with links to looooooooooooooooong articles full of blather and offers of over-priced food products. The diet plan itself is typical, outdated and uninspired. This website should be re-named “never gets beyond being just another diet.”

  • Joanna

    Would not provide a refund when I complained that I couldn’t get the foods they recommended.

    • Babs Phillips

      That’s not true, Joanna. They aren’t like that. I challenge your comment and don’t believe it’s true.

      • ricknick59

        How do you know? Were you there when she called? You sound just like a brain washed zombie! Did you buy swamp land in Florida as well and swear it was a great investment? Probed by aliens maybe? Because that is exactly how you sound!
