Omnitrition International was founded by a husband and wife duo in 1989, and they are based out of Reno, Nevada. They offer a variety of weight loss and wellness products, and some of their specific weight loss products include their Thermo Herbal Tear, Omni Drops, Nitelite, and PhasoTrim. Omnitrition is a multi level marketing company that sells people on the idea of being their own boss and making a lot of money.
When calling into the support line, my call was answered immediately in a non-professional manner. I had to ask a multitude of questions, because there was little to no information on the website. To their credit I called in twice, and my calls were answered both times. They informed me that the most popular item was the Omni drops, and that many people buy the $79.00 starter kit. There is a 30-day money back guarantee, which is not horrible, but in my opinion there should be a 365-day money back guarantee. This is a true HCG diet, and distributors have no problem selling it no matter the side effects.
Do Dieters Lose Weight?
Based off of my research of the companies instructions to use their weight loss products I was rather shocked. Anytime you are starving yourself with a miniscule 500 calories a day your body starts eating itself and losing weight. You will lose weight, but you will not become healthier. This diet is more dangerous than helpful in the long term for its distributors and customers.
As far as scientific evidence is concerned, the details of the ingredients in the supplements are slim to none. Not only are the details slim, but also there are no instructions on how to take the supplements when you get them home. I would not be able to justify spending nearly $80.00 on this product for those two reasons alone. They do provide very basic nutritional information when looking at the products, but there is no real ingredient list present.
The products themselves do not help someone lose weight, rather when following their program you only can consume 500 calories a day. This will naturally help your body lose weight with or without supplements. Many of the reviews from outside sources did not believe the drops did anything for them, and that the 500 calories was making the weight come off. Finally, there was feedback that it was rather dangerous to be on a 500-calorie diet and try to exercise at the same time.
Is It Easy To Follow?
Because of the multi level marketing platform Omnitrition International set up, it makes the programs harder and more complicated to follow. Everyone is going to have different needs, so the prices and procedures for each person varies depending on their needs. It will be hit and miss with the representatives as they all have different knowledge levels. Because of the platform, it is hard to discern who is being honest, and who just wants to make another sale. Another roadblock as spoke before is the initial confusion on how many drops to take (if you are using the Omni Drops) as there are no instructions on these. All in all, this program seems unorganized and undisciplined to help customers reach their weight loss goals the healthy and sustainable way with little to no confusion.
Because there are traces of HCG in their products there can be nasty and dangerous side effects. Some very minor and obvious side effects are going to include: dehydration, headaches, and loss of energy, slowed metabolism, and hunger. Some other noted side effects are hair thinning, constipation, rash, and leg cramps.
Their social media is rather bleak, with their Facebook page not being updated for almost three years, and their Twitter page looking like a ghost town. The diet overall is extremely expensive and unproven to start off. Because the bulk of their products are only sold from reps directly, it makes purchasing an inconvenience. I believe this company is a complete scam when it is all said and done, and do not think it is a good path to go down when looking to lose weight the right way. They coach you to starve your body down to 500 calories a day, and throw in dangerous HCG Diet drops to the mix. There is a limited amount of information about the ingredients, because they are not good for you. I would strongly recommend to steer clear from this diet program all together. There are better ways to lose healthy weight, and keep it off!
