How the Venus Factor Diet Works

Created specifically for women, Venus Factor addresses weight loss in a unique approach that involves both diet and exercise. The program was developed by John Barban and lasts for 12 weeks.

According to Barban, it is the level of Leptin in women’s bodies that is directly responsible for their ability to lose weight. However, because they typically try to diet like men these levels are often thrown off which means they are doing more harm than good. So, Barban created what he calls the Metabolic Over Ride (MOR), which he contends works so well that a cheat day is therefore allowed.

Do Dieters Lose Weight on the Venus Factor Diet?

Dieters using the Venus Factor program will likely lose weight if they can stick to the program. The program requires a good amount of extreme exercise and a diet plan that cannot be deviated from. Therefore, any dieter who expects long-term success will have to remain true to the Venus Factor.

Is the Venus Factor Diet Easy to Follow?

The Venus Factor is a digital product. That means that there are no hard cover books or DVDs sent to a dieter buying the program. Instead, everything is offered online. While some view that as an advantage in that they “get it now,” others might not like the fact that they have nothing physical to own.

In addition, the workouts that the Venus Factor requires can be very difficult. Those who are new to the world of fitness may struggle. The same goes for the restrictive diet. However, any straying from the formula will make results so-so at best, which could lead to quitting the program altogether.

Conclusion

The Venus Factor program is all over the internet these days. At a cost of just under $50 it does seem like there is a lot that is offered for the price. In fact, there are a number of websites that prominently promote the Venus Factor program.

However, when you look closely, you’ll see that the main website of the Venus Factor offers an affiliate program. So, that leads to the belief that much of the praise associated with these sites is due to the fact that they get money from Venus Factor when their visitors buy the system. As a matter of fact, they get a 75% commission.

While the diet may work to some degree for women, it still might not be worth buying. There are many other comprehensive programs on the market today that also offer guidance in both diet and fitness, but don’t rely on paying other websites to promote them.

    This diet is not for me. I knew it the same day I ordered. That was a little over a week ago and I have sent 8 different emails asking for a refund. They will not honor their money back, no questions asked and within 48 hours refund. Definitely not a good business to deal with. Buyer beware

    • April K. Aretta Pritchett

      May I ask how you knew it wasn’t for you the moment you saw it? Was you expecting something different?

      • Margaret L

        May I ask, do you work for the company?

        • kbmomhope

          Margaret, I don’t work for the company either, and your reply to April K. was not helpful. Her question was valid. You complain about hard sell emails after ordering, but you really didn’t comment on the program itself and why you felt it didn’t meet your expectations.

          I am looking into the program and I do understand from their marketing materials and other articles/blogs/reviews on the web that it is totally digital information, that it does take commitment and work (no magic pills, just discipline and following the program), and that you do not have to purchase any additional things they try to sell you. It emphasizes that they don’t sell any special foods or meals, a la Medifast or Nutrisytem or Jenny Craig, but meal plans does indicate some sort of food restrictions. Obviously, if you could lose weight eating as you’ve always eaten, you wouldn’t be searching for a weight loss program – duh! Sorry for being sarcastic, but it is true.

          Yes, most of the information could be found by doing a lot of research on your own, but to me, my time is more valuable than the $47 to have a nice reference to guide me if I think the program seems sound. That’s why I was searching for negative comments/reviews of the program. Your review really doesn’t address the merits/negatives of the program itself, just a combination of things that were easily found out before purchasing and a warning about extras they may try to sell you that aren’t required for the basic program.

          • Margaret L

            You are not being sarcastic, ma’am, you are being critical — without the even the benefit of knowing me.

            The point is this: You sound like a person who would really like this program, so go for it!

            I thought it looked interesting, and I like the woman above in 2011 knew the moment I pressed “submit” and there were three or four offers behind the initial offer, that I had made a mistake…. Then began the battles to get my money back. I was ultimately successful (about 4 to 6 weeks later, why so long?)…. And only after filing a dispute with American Express, who did contact the company…

          • kbmomhope

            I’m glad to hear you did finally get your money back, Margaret. Can I ask again though why you thought it was a mistake? Does the exercise program look too intense? I ask that only because I myself have become very out of shape and I suffer from arthritis in my back, hips and knees that has of course gotten worse due to my gaining weight and I need to lose about 50 pounds. I know I need more exercise and will just have to deal with the pain for a while, but I also don’t want to injure myself in the process. So many of the programs out there (CrossFit, etc) look way too intense and could easily lead to injury. You look around the same age as me and I don’t know your fitness level, so I just wondered if that was the case or if it was more the recommended diet that you didn’t feel you could follow.

            I actually had lost the weight two years ago by eating very low carb, but was not able to maintain it, probably because my metabolism also has slowed down that much more combined with more hours seated at a desk for work. I have other questions as well that I haven’t seen addressed on any websites posted by users or sellers of the program, such as how it seems to cycle higher and lower carbs. I cannot eat a lot of carbs due to reactive hypoglycemia, but low carb alone is not letting me lose the weight.

    • Margaret L

      @Betty … Very interesting thing has happened my first post on getting your money back has been erased. Short version, you must call your credit card company and dispute the charge… These people are really overboard.

    This is a complete diet, exercise and “immersion” system in which “they” expect you to sign up for digital downloads ($47), buy additional offers — three which come with the original $47 — although he says time and time again all it costs is $47 — PLUS a “free” trial for their immersion website, which thereafter is $100 (per month or year — not sure…). Plus DVDs of exercises you need to tone your body into exactly that beautiful, sexy size you always wanted to be, right? All the time saying, there’s no special diet — oh yeah, the cookbook is only $19.99 — etc. etc. etc. Once you click “order,” you have given them permission to go into hard-sell mode. It’s a complete system. I’m sure it works for the younger women. I’m not one of them. You can find the details of leptin resistance by going to any book website and searching “leptin resistance.” Oh, yeah, there’s also life “coaches” available, too! $$$$$$$

    They inundate you with email and if you try to get out of the program they keep sending e-mails and ignore you until the 60 days are over and you can’t get your money back. DON’T DO IT!!!
