Flat Tummy Tea Review

Flat Tummy Tea is a company that offers a variety of weight loss drinks such as teas, shakes, and even lollipops. In. this review I am going to focus on the herbal tea blend and give you the full scoop on the product. The company is based in Perth, Australia but they also have a distribution and manufacturing center in New York to better access the United States. [1] The company markets directly to females, using words like ‘babe’ to try and be personable with the customer. The product is marketed to obviously flatten your mid section but it also is supposed to help with speeding up your metabolism, improving your digestion, and giving your energy levels a [...]

Texas Superfood Review

Texas Superfood is a whole food nutritional supplement in the form of a green powder. It has over 55 ingredients which are a combination of algae, grasses, enzymes, veggies, and fruits. There is no indication on the bottle of where the ingredients come from. Do the ingredients originate from organic fruits, grasses, veggies, and algae’s or not? This product was created by the company NuPlexa and the founder Dr. Dennis Black. Lastly, the product can look deceiving as to what it actually is (example: a capsule or powder). This review  in particular is based on the powder. I do want to start this review off by saying this company has been in a bit of trouble with the [...]

Skinny Coffee Club Review

The Skinny Coffee Club is a weight loss drink in the form of coffee! For many people who love coffee this might be music to your ears, but how effective is this product when it is all said and done? The company is based out of the UK. Currently it has ships to over 145 countries worldwide, and also found on Amazon. As marketed, this coffee drink is meant to reduce cravings and control hunger. Also said to create a slimming effect on the body in just one week’s time. [1] The only means to contacting customer service is through an e-mail address ([email protected]) which makes communication about any issues rather hard. How Does The Skinny Coffee Club [...]

Isopure Review

Protein is an essential part of nutrition for the body each and every day, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that there are a lot of products on the market in the form of a protein supplement. Isopure is one of those supplements, and the company touts its product as being pure, lactose free, and free of fat and carbs. [1] Many protein powders come with hidden carbohydrates and calories that many of us just do not want to have in our diet, so this is the main hook line with the Isopure, and it has attracted so many people in the door. The company was founded in 1984 by two men named Hal and Ernie, and [...]

Munchery Review

Munchery is a meal delivery system that offers both meal kits and pre-made meals right to your doorstep. This is unique in the meal delivery world, as many companies do not offer both of those options at the same time.  There are no special allergen options to choose from with Munchery such as Gluten free, Vegan, or Paleo so the meals are straight forward and come as is. The company prides itself on creating fast 15 minute meals (if they come in a kit) that the customer can prepare, just like its competitor Gobble. Unlike Gobble, you cannot add on any special items such as soup, dessert, or a kids option and there are no vegetarian options either. [...]

Gobble Review

Gobble is a meal service company that touts itself on providing meals to its customers that can be made in 15 minutes or less in one pan. This is a new approach to the meal kit subscription service program, as many other companies do not offer anything similar to this. The company only delivers their meals on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday’s which is also different from other companies who deliver Monday and Tuesday. The founding CEO is named Ooshma Garg and she is based out of San Francisco, California. The CEO is founder of many different companies, one being called Anapata which helps link college students to jobs based on their resume and experiences. [1] She was struggling [...]

Lindora Diet Review

Marshall Stamper founded the Lindora Clinic in 1971, and the company is based out of Newport Beach, California. They are a clinic overall, not merely a diet pill website. With all of the sincerity the website offers to the customer at first glance, the amount of information and choices they throw at you is overwhelming. Anytime you read “medically supervised,” you can bet you are going to pay for it!* When you go on this website, get ready to spend a few hours picking and choosing what you would like to buy. With all of your options, you may spend upwards of $500-$1200. The Lindora Clinic offers a variety of products such as protein bars, pills, DVD’s, CD’s, [...]

Feed My Fit Review

Feed My Fit is a meal planning system that is based out of Meridian, Idaho. Unlike other food subscription services that offer delivery of groceries to your door, the meals come already made so you do not have to spend time inspecting a recipe or learn to create a new dish. The owner of the company is Baron Hollowell, and he says “All you have to do to lose weight is eat.” [1] While this is not a “weight loss” product per say, they do offer a variety of healthy meals that will be geared toward helping someone be more health conscious such as the turkey chili or Montreal Steak with sweet potatoes. Baron is a lifelong athlete [...]
