People Who Viewed Danette May Diet Also Viewed Trim Down Club.

“Eat, Drink, Shrink.”

I have to admit, I think that’s a pretty clever title for a weight-loss book. So right off the bat, Danette May gets big ups from me for that. And if it works, well, even better.  

But before we begin to learn more about Danette May and her popular weight-loss and exercise programs, I must say this: there’s no such thing as a “degree in pre-med,” as she claims to have. Pre-med is a course of study, not a degree—so for me, that’s a problem. And I cannot find the college or university where Danette May claims to have received “a degree in pre-med and nutrition.” [1] 

That said, I don’t doubt she knows a lot about exercise, weight loss, and fitness in general. She describes herself as “America’s leading lifestyle expert.” Maybe she is. That’s a huge claim and I’m not sure I can prove or disprove it—and for the purposes of this review, it may not even be relevant.  

Never heard of her? If you have any social media accounts whatsoever, search for “Danette May” and I can assure you you’ll find her. If you have watched cable and regular broadcast TV, you’ve perhaps already seen her. If you read popular women’s, family, and health- or weight loss-focused magazines, you’ve maybe seen her picture or read about her. You may even have one of her many books on your shelf. Danette May’s exercise and diet books, routines, and diet and detox programs are hugely popular, as is she.  

A single mom who’s suffered a lot of loss, she says, Danette turned to fitness and nutrition to cope with personal issues and ended up finding she was pretty good at helping people lose weight, tone up and get a “bikini body.” And apparently after following strict nutritional plans and killer workouts to the letter, people do lose inches and gain muscle. So that’s all good.  

Danette makes a lot of claims about what you’ll accomplish with her as your weight loss and fitness guru. [2]  

Let’s take a look. 

Danette May Claims 

Starting here at Step 1, you sign up for her newsletter. Enter your email and you’re subscribed; you can always unsubscribe. [3]  

I didn’t want to do this so I wouldn’t be inundated, but did anyway, for you guys. (I’ll check to see what I received via email after I finished writing this review and let you know, so read on.)

Step 2: “connect with Danette” through social media including Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, Instagram and Snapchat. This I did not do, but it’s simply liking or following her pages. You can always unfollow or unlike.  

But it’s Step 3 where you start to commit, by signing up for the 3-Day Detox. (When I was on the site and scrolled to the bottom of the page for the price, I found that the usual $27.99 was now 75% off with a ticker telling me how many minutes left I had for this deal of a lifetime; I’ll let it run out and see if I lose the sale price of $7.99.) 

Known as the Bikini Body Detox, Danette May’s 3-Day Detox will  

Flush away years of built up waste and toxins … skyrocket energy … melt away stubborn fat …in 3 days. …get rid of the dangerous toxins and substances out of your body …boost your energy levels fast so you don’t feel wiped out and utterly exhausted all the time…transform your body and hormones so that you no longer struggle to lose that stubborn excess weight…and ultimately, so that you avoid following the masses of ladies who are suffering daily from fatigue, skin breakouts and out-of-control cravings. [4] 

All of this in 3 days. “That’s all it takes,” she claims. You get to eat, take no supplements or meal replacements and after just 3 days you’ll have balanced hormones, a stronger-working metabolism, all of your organs will be free of toxins, your skin will look better—and everything you need to know comes in a handy downloadable ebook (the original $27.99, now $7.99).  

Folks, I actually found the entire 27-page book as a .PDF file online for free. Probably not fair to provide the link here, but an easy search turned it up for me.  

This detox is very specific with a shopping list, instructions on what to eat and drink and when and how to prepare what you’ll be consuming (most quick and easy), starting with a warm-water wake-up concoction with lemon, cayenne and apple cider vinegar (ACV). You’ll learn more about these and other ingredients shortly. Breakfasts and lunches consist of green-ish shakes packed with her list of ingredients including kaffir, coconut oil, ginger, ACV, chia, kale, mint and more. We’ll get there in a sec. Also, a near-gallon of tap-warm water must be consumed every day.  

Danette May’s 30-Day Challenge, which she runs every five or six weeks, is popular.

She says “many women fail to lose weight because they get stuck, overwhelmed, or confused” and that her diet is not only different, but she says she won’t let you fail. In this challenge, participants are called contestants. [5] 

After paying $47, you’ll get access to her “step-by-step action guide”—meal plans with shopping lists and recipes and access to Danette’s “private” Facebook group where she says,  you can interact with everyone else going through this challenge for a full 30 days, have constant support and reassurance from those struggling with the same challenges you are, get your questions answered in minutes so you’re never stuck wondering what to do next, be inspired by others which is a great way to motivate yourself and “even get direct access to myself and my team to coach you through any rough patches. [6] 

And then she shares “success stories.”  

Finally, the Danette May trilogy includes her workouts, which she says people “rave” about. She is popular for her fitness videos, for sure. Scores of her videos are available online for free. Her “Sexy Abs in 3 Minutes” video workout has almost 200,000 views. She says her workouts are easy on the joints, are fast and effective, and can be done anywhere at any time. 

So there you go.  

Danette May Ingredients 

One of the elixirs in her detox and other diets is apple cider vinegar, in particular, the acetic acid in that and essentially all vinegars (I prefer red wine vinegar for taste.)  

So your shopping list would include raw ACV and these other foods which Danette says will kickstart your metabolism, and help burn fat while doing a bang-up job of detoxifying the body. All these foods on your shopping list, which she says should be certified organic, as part of the 3-day detox or any and all of Danette’s meal plan suggestions include kefir, lemons, kale (or spinach), cayenne, bananas, pineapple, berries, cacao powder, quinoa, avocados, green tea, and chia. This is by no means a complete list, but these are key metabolism-boosting, fat burning, good-for-your-gut foods that create and help maintain a healthy bacteria level in your belly which helps you lose weight.  

The Science (or Lack Thereof) Behind the Danette May Diet  

About that elixir; there is some science about vinegar, though not specifically apple cider vinegar. Prevention magazine’s website has an article that cites a study which was published in 2006 in Medscape General Medicine: 

“Acetic acid, the main component in vinegar, may interfere with the body’s ability to digest starch,” says lead study author Carol Johnston, PhD, associate director of the School of Nutrition and Health Promotion at Arizona State University. [7] [8] 

I must say that the nutritional information she provides is, for the most part, what you learn from many nutritionists:  

  • eliminate processed foods because they contain corn syrups and other sugars, some disguised and some not  
  • and in many cases, otherwise good-for-you foods, when processed, lose some or most of their nutrient value (concentrated fruits juices, for example; the fiber in the fruits is all but gone and often extra sugar is added). And ironically, these processed, packaged foods which sabotage weight loss are “diet” frozen or other packaged foods; check the labels.  
  • So no more sugar and preservative-packed all-aisle grocery store foods; rather consume healthy, fresh organic foods with emphasis on vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, legumes and healthy fats (nuts and seeds, for example).  

She also throws in a number of foods known to boost metabolism and help block the absorption of starches that end up as fat, especially belly fat. Foods packed with antioxidants, probiotics, omega-3 nutrients and other blood sugar- and cholesterol-lowering, heart-healthy foods. Add a good workout (hers are, wow!)—if not daily then three to four times a week—and you’ll lose weight.  

Here’s the problem: from the Mayo Clinic website,  

Detoxification (detox) diets are popular, but there is little evidence that they eliminate toxins from your body. … However, there’s little evidence that detox diets actually remove toxins from the body. Indeed, the kidneys and liver are generally quite effective at filtering and eliminating most ingested toxins. … So why do so many people claim to feel better after detoxification? It may be due in part to the fact that a detox diet eliminates highly processed foods that have solid fats and added sugar. Simply avoiding these high-calorie low-nutrition foods for a few days may be part of why people feel better. [9] 

Word on the Street About the Danette May Diet 

So interestingly, a Danette May Facebook commenter actually verified what the Mayo Clinic advises. Under a July 28 2017 Facebook post by Danette which read “Stop Eating CRAP: Carbonated drinks, Refined sugars, Artificial foods and Processed foods” and liked by almost 800 people, “Charlotte Ann” wrote, 

Never thought I could, but I’ve cut all that out for the better part of a year and I feel like a different person. So much more energy and motivation! Lost a lot of weight, too!!! [10] 

So while committing to the Danette May Diet likely got Charlotte to cut out “crap,” it was over the course of a year that she did it; in other words, she changed her lifestyle. Just what Mayo suggests; a long-term—or even better, a lifelong—nutritional correction, not a quick-fix detox.  

Danette’s book, Eat, Drink, Shrink on Amazon doesn’t have a ton of reviews—just a couple dozen, with many being a couple of years old—but of the 5-star ones, most agree that the recipes are good. [11] 

But a very recent review by ‘KIM’ was critical of the book and the diet. “I was disappointed that I did her 30 day challenge and I already have these recipes. Thought I was buying this book to get more ideas.” [12] 

Alternatives to the Danette May Diet

The Danette May detox diet is trendy and when folks are surfing for diets, the following also show up:

  1. Trim Down Club (Recommended)
  2. Ketogenic Diet
  3. Weight Watchers
  4. Beyond Diet
  5. 21 Day Fix

Trim Down Club vs Danette May

When it comes to the nutrition only, at least for the most part, the Danette May detox is similar to the Trim Down Club. But for so many reasons, I recommend Trim Down Club. Here’s why:

What Danette May gets right (I only know this because it’s a post on her popular Facebook page) is her urging people to “Stop Eating CRAP: carbonated drinks; refined sugars; artificial foods;

and processed foods.” Otherwise, her quick-fix detox is a fool’s errand, I’m sorry to say. Detoxes do not work. Yes, people say they feel better, but there’s little to no scientific evidence that detox diets actually remove toxins from the body, instead the mind-bogglingly efficient and miraculous body does that all on its own (hello kidneys and liver). It’s true that when you cut the crap, you’ll begin to feel great, get healthy, and lose weight. But it’s about a lifetime of change, a commitment to a whole new way of eating, moving, and living, not a finite number of detox days, people. That’s what the Trim Down Club gets right and why I recommend it. The Trim Down Club, with thousands of members working on it together, teaches you to dramatically change what you eat. Ditch the forever “keeping you fat and unhealthy” processed and packaged so-called diet foods especially, also known as crap, and instead empty the pantry and fridge of the stuff that’s no good for you and prepare healthy and real food; fat-burning food. It’s a complete lifestyle change, but not just for you, for your family too. Plus, Trim Down Club offers real-life help to achieve this, and, as a club, you make the change with the support of a few thousand others doing the same thing. Oh, and it’s cheap; a freezer full of diet entrees costs far more.

Ketogenic Diet vs Danette May

The Ketogenic Diet pops up in searches for Danette May. I have done the homework on this and though I completely get the going into ketosis part of any diet that takes you off carbs—Atkins; twice. I lost 23 pounds and 7 years later, did it again and lost 19. But of course it was unsustainable and bad for my health and triglycerides. I know the Ketogenic is NOT Atkins, but the idea is the same: Send your body into an metabolic state where ketones (molecules of energy that are created in the liver from fat are used to fuel the body and the brain as they travel through the body) are raised in order to turn the body into a fat burning system. I do not doubt the Ketogenic Diet is an effective weight loss strategy for the obese, and science backs that up, which is important. However, as soon as one begins to eat carbs again, the body responds swiftly and the weight returns with a vengeance. It’s not sustainable. And this diet must be done under a physician’s care, I contend.

Weight Watchers vs Danette May

Oh Weight Watchers, thanks for the memories. We did well together. But I had to leave you for good because your ‘smart’ crunchy snacks—crisps and crackers, chips—little chocolate cakes, frozen pizza, lasagna, and cheeseburgers are packed with GMO’s, artificial you-name-it, preservatives, and a dirty laundry list of ingredients that are just bad for us. [15] Period. (Oh, I know you have a new line: Smart Made where you sub out white rice for brown and the like, but still loaded with processed ingredients.) WW may be helpful for losing weight, but it isn’t as healthy as changing your life and eating right.

Beyond Diet vs Danette May

The Beyond Diet shows up in diet searches because it’s hot. Why? Author Isabel De Los Rios is popular and there’s celeb endorsements. Mostly nutritionally sound, it does, however, miss the mark as it eliminates all good-for-you grains. And, there’s not a thing in this diet plan that you cannot find online for free.

21 Day Fix vs Danette May

The 21 Day Fix naturally shows up in online searches. But it’s a popular quick-fix diet as evidenced by the name. Follow it for 21 days and you’ll drop weight. Stop drinking soda for 21 days and you’ll lose weight. Stop eating fast food for 21 days and you’ll lose weight. Stop eating processed foods for 21 days and you’ll lose weight. Stop eating white rice, white pasta, and potatoes for 21 days and you’ll lose weight. You get my drift. But on the 22nd day, when you sip that cola, or chomp those salty fries, or swoon over that pile of mashed potatoes, or order a hot dog with extra ketchup, the pounds, stealthily will return, perhaps slowly, but surely.

The Bottom Line: Is the Danette May Diet Worth a Try? 

Depends. Everything you need to do is already online for free. That said, it’s not a fortune, and the support, motivation and camaraderie may be worth the cost. Me? I’ll save the few dollars.  

Oh, and about that newsletter email: It was friendly, with no high-pressure sales pitches. Although she does explain in a separate browser page how to “whitelist and prioritise” emails from her; basically make sure her emails to you don’t end up as spam. [13] 

And, you may click on “unsubscribe” at the bottom of the email. I did that and was taken to a screen that— for folks not too familiar with the process—might look like you’re opting out of receiving all emails from anyone. [14]  

You’re not. Wasn’t a fan of that tactic.

    took a bite of the Danette May program thinking it was more of a tightening toning exercise routine and quick. Soon found out it was not only that but more an infomercial for additional expensive protein concoctions and a lot of stuff I dont eat as I am WHOLE FOOD PLANT BASED now. NO MEAT NO DAIRY NO EGGS and NO OIL. which her recipes are loaded with…requesting a refund and have been advised to watch a video which hopefully will change my mind and keep me in the program….not interested! Best wishes to those who want to follow this, but my money is on my current way of life as I have lost 15 pounds since July!

  • D. Pace

    Could I sign up for the 30 day challenge and start it a week later due to going on vacation or would any material received be lost or nonsensical?

  • Priscilla Battaglia

    Is everything on-line, or will there be materials actually mailed to me?

  • Erica Bough

    I did the 30 Day challenge and really liked the recipes, although MANY of them repeat. The workouts were good for a beginner. If you haven’t done a nutrition program or workout program it’s great, but I otherwise agree that there isn’t anything new here. Overall the program was nice to remind me what I already know, bit the emails are terrible. Today was titled “Did I do something wrong?” I’m disappointed that the marketing team makes her look bad with these emails that keep coming. Very codependent in nature and she doesn’t strike me as such. I wish they would represent her better and be more dignified in their follow up marketing and less manipulative. Let the product surreal for itself. I’ve unsubscribed unsuccessfully.

    Looks like someone used your card to purchase some supplements and got hooked into an autofil type system. Maybe your wife without you knowing? This site has nothing to do with the Dannette May or her diet/program or system. I’m currently in her 30 challenge and have not purchased anything other than the challenge for $47. There are no recurring charges or anything like that. The company she uses to charge for her products and services is called Click Bank; and they offer a 100% money back guarantee. My friend also joined and was able to get all her money back because she could not participate in the 30 day challenge.

  • Aya Olmedillo

    I agree with the “scammy” way the initial webpage is set up. It’s almost like an infomercial online. So I was skeptical at first, too, but after 1 year of trying to “eat healthy” and exercise and not losing much weight, (was losing body fat, but not weight); getting through 1 complete cycle of P90X3, with diet and everything and still not seeing that scale move much, I decided why not? It was only $47 to join, for the price, it’s been well worth it! I had come across a few of Dannette’s clean eating recipes and they were great. I purchased the Flat Abs Fast video and found it and the meal plan it came with to be useful. So I joined the 30 day challenge starting on July 31. Yes, it’s all e-book/e-delivery based system. But that to me makes it convenient, no need to wait for things to come in the mail. I’m in the last week of the 30 day challenge and IT HAS BEEN AMAZING!!! It’s not easy, it takes commitment and self discipline, but the results are real! I’ve dropped almost 10 pounds in the last 30 days, but more impressively, have dropped from 26% body fat to 22% body fat. It took me 1 year to go from 36% to 26% and I was able to drop 4% more in just this one month! Eating good, nutritious food & not feeling like I’m starving. I’ve lost 2 inches along my waist, 4 inches along my hips and 1 inch around each of my thighs. My skin is vibrant and my face looks younger, even without makeup! More importantly, I’ve learned some great information about portion control, clean eating, alternative options for common foods and a way to maintain a healthy clean life style from here on out. I’ve also learned to enjoy foods I thought I didn’t like, like beets for example. Most of her recipes are really good! Bonus, my family has now started eating the meals with me and are eating much healthier since her recipes are that good! You eat about 1800-2200 calories per day, depending on the recipes you chose to use that week. The exercises are all great ways to tone up tough areas & you get them done in about 20 minutes; all with just body weight. No need for special equipment or weights or anything. The meditations could be better, but I’ve been using professional guided meditations for years, so I may be a little biased. They are helpful and for most women who have never learned about positive self talk, they are a great start and a move in the right direction for many. They build up self confidence and self love. There is also a program just for men, they double the meal portions and I’m not sure what they get as far as exercises or meditations go. They also get their own facebook group, separate from the women. The facebook group is a PRIVATE group, so you won’t see what we share in there. And even though there is the occasional venting post by someone who is struggling, it’s been a great supportive resource and helps you realize you are not alone in going through this. As a matter of fact, because we have a safe place to vent our frustrations, we’ve built a support system for each other and overall it’s a positive, encouraging place to go when you need a little boost or have a question. As for the mentors, they are “graduates” of the Dannette May system, so they provide very good information and experience, which I find very valuable. They post videos on recipes, spreadsheets to make it easier for us and help us with new things that we are learning along the way. When they need to, they do have Dannette herself chime in. I’ve seen her post at least 4 times this past month, directly answering member’s questions. And yes, there are almost 15,000 women in this challenge alone, and I believe she does 6 or so challenges throughout the year; so your assumption that not many people use her product is incorrect. They do shut down the facebook page on a certain date after the challenge is complete. And yes, now towards the end of our challenge, they are promoting the Forever Fit program, which is the one with the recurring $29 charge, but you are not obligated to join it, if you do not want to. And if you do, they offer a great support system via a PRIVATE facebook group, similar to the one we’ve been in for the challenge; and the private website is full of recipes, planners and many other tools to help you design your custom monthly plan to stay on track with your meals & workouts so you keep seeing progress. I have not signed up for that one yet… but one of the members posted a virtual tour just the other day. It looked good. I may try 1 month and see if it’s worth it. I can tell you, that anyone who tries this program and quits in the first week, is not a credit worthy person to listen to. The first week of any diet/program is the toughest, and this one is no exception. The first 3 days are a detox and it was hard. But by the second week, things start falling into place and you start feeling incredible. I recommend if you are willing to give it the full 30 days to try something new, then go for it! You will get a lot out of this program. If you are looking for a magic pill that will make you lose weight without putting in much effort, then don’t do this one. And no, I’m not getting any kind of kickback for posting this. I’m just sharing my personal experience so maybe someone else will give it a try and like it as much as I have. Lastly, I suggest that before writing a “review” on a diet program, you should maybe give it a try first; not write up an article based on something you read on line. Just an idea 🙂 Much love to all you out there looking to improve your health! <3

  • Crystal Scillitani

    My experience has been totally different. I had to seek out the info for forever fit, and have seen plenty of comments that were not deleted when people were complaining or in a panic about their progress. I will say that when I signed up for the challenge I wasn’t thrilled to be offered a chance to purchase the protein powder she recommends, etc. but I do realize a lot of people aren’t familiar with how to purchase quality protein so they may have appreciated the opportunity to get it and make life simple. I didn’t buy anything but the program and have had great success due to the support via FB. Danette posts 2-3 times a week and adds videos a few times a week doing FB Live. I have already recommended this so several friends in my mid-40’s age range…it has gotten me back into my groove and helped me to drop some serious fat from my belly and thighs. I feel like a rockstar!

  • Crystal Scillitani

    I highly recommend signing up for Danette’s 30 Day challenge. The month I completed the challenge there were 1500 of us doing this together and connecting via FB. You get a menu every Friday for the upcoming week and support via a PRIVATE facebook page. I recently did the 30 day challenge and lost 12lbs, have no more cravings for junk, and gained an amazing sense of self confidence. I can eat out and navigate good food choices, have a better handle on portions, know what to do if I fall into a situation and cheat, and feel like I am part of a larger group of sisters. I don’t think the way to go for her plan is to buy the e-books independently. Do the program…no gimmicky stuff, no powders, pills, or fasting. She knows nutrition and you eat delicious meals 3x a day and snacks 3x a day. The meals include healthy versions of omelettes, pancakes, french toast, wraps, pizzas, and more. Honestly, I have tried a ton of stupid things on the market to dump my last 10lbs of weight hoping to see my abs again. This is a long term sustainable lifestyle that just fits well into real life and WORKS! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the program to friends and family.

    They fail to tell you the behind the scenes story like the lack of responses by mentors; the hundreds of people promised t-shirts if they refer others to the challenges but they never receive them and if the few that do it took months and months. The misspellings in literature and the wrong measurements in ingredients, or the fact that mentors start monitoring your personal Facebook sites and how you’re slapped with verbal legalities if you choose other products than the ones Danette is sponsored to market to you. Let’s not forget the high pressure insulting pitch that you “can’t do this alone.” How about all the ladies who became popular in the program that were terminated for no policy violations but snuffed out simply because so many liked them. There’s a lot of crap you don’t hear about but you sadly find out is real after you invested your money and or heart in the program. Save your money and find yourself a more ethical program for your healthy lifestyle. This one isn’t what it appears.

  • Are you using the process? Do you know this from personal experience?

  • That’s interesting. I’m part of it right now and don’t see the “sloppy typos” or recipes with photos that don’t match. Also, there are people posting things about the taste of some of the smoothies, or the lemon water, and they don’t disappear. I’m not a skeptic, but I am a person who proceeds cautiously when I join something and understand that my effort is what makes it — especially when it comes to something as serious as losing a good amount of weight and making sure I am healthy. I haven’t seen an email or any post in the FB group about the Forever Fit group and I’m staring Week Two in the face (with a nice total of 7 lbs. lost so far for the record).

  • Jan Greggo

    The 30-day challenge works. The reviewer should join a 30-day challenge to see the results in the closed FB group. Def worth the one-time $47 charge to learn to eat well, work out, gain confidence and lose weight with the support of thousands of women.

  • beth reilly

    The program is amazing! I followed her 30 day challenge and felt amazing. It’s worth doing. It helped me to eat healthy again. I didn’t join the Forever Fit after it was done I thought it was to expensive.

  • Kaytie Buckhalt

    I just bought the $6.95 DVD and was very concerned to read kamisan’s comment that it was a lie and I had just been tricked. I went back and read all the fine print, and I think I understand what happened to his wife.
    After you buy the DVD there are a bunch of other pages you have to sort through offering all these other products. Every product offer comes with 2 buttons you can push. The first one is simply “yes, I would like to buy this super great thing for super low price” or “no thanks, I’m happy being miserable and I understand that this is my last chance at happiness for forever.”
    The last offer like this was the trickiest. It was a membership to the online support group, and she offers the first month free, but the big red “$0” makes it look like its free forever. Its not. Under the big red “$0”, they explain that the first 30 days are free (during which time you may cancel) but after that it goes to the regular price of $29 a month.
    I of course, clicked “no thanks, I’m happy never acheiving my goals and I understand I will never be offered this amazing opportunity again”. Crossing my fingers, but I’m pretty sure that will prevent the recurring charge.

  • kamisan

    My wife did the dannette mae free no recurring charge DVD and guess what.. there’s a recurring charge. Just had to work with clickbank to get it cancelled. The charge is FOREVER. $29 a month.

    HERE IS THE LIE STRAIGHT FROM HER WEBPAGE

    (Just $6.95 shipping & handling anywhere in the US)

    (International shipping available- S&H varies by country. Click button above to calculate)

    Nothing will be rebilled on this offer, ever. Just pay a ONE-TIME shipping & handling charge. This DVD is truly 100% free, and is my way of getting exposure for my new Flat Belly Fast program without a massive advertising budget.

    • Heather Piszar

      Then your wife was probably signed up with Forever Fit which is a recurring charge. The DVD was a one time.

      I purchased this DVD first and I did not have the recurring charge. Unfortunately, your wife probably clicked the wrong options on the check-out screen & signed up for the Forever Fit group. Question, did your wife actually try the Flat Belly Fast DVD with the 10 day meal plan? Or are you just upset about the mistake she made with the charges?

    I love this program. I started the 30 day challenge and I am starting week 2. I am not weighing myself until the end, however, I have lost inches, in just a week, and I honestly feel better than I have in a long time. I read the reviews saying negative comments are shut down on Facebook, well that may be true, but Danette tells you in the beginning that the Facebook page is a place to positively encourage others. We all have down days from time to time during the process, but you need positivity to help you move forward, not sharing in negative thoughts. One thing I really like about this program that it is a bit different than others that I’ve tried as it brings the mind into the program. It’s not just about eating certain meals and working out. It is also about the positive mindset, and accepting ourselves in whatever condition we are currently, while we are trying to be stronger and healthier. Thus, the negative comments are removed from the Facebook page. Danette does give an outlet for negative comments outside of the Facebook page if you are truly unhappy about something. In regard to the “selling” of additional products, I have never been pressured to buy anything else. She gives alternatives for those products that she recommends if you do not want to purchase, but she also says if you want convenience, you can buy products that will do the same thing. I specifically love the 30 day challenge because everyone starts at the same time. They are going through the 3-day detox at the same time and you can offer support to each other. You can comment on the meal of the day, as everyone in the beginning is having the same meals. I only paid $47 for this and let me tell you that I have spend much more on other programs that did not give me half of the information, support, or results that the 30 day challenge has provided. It is definitely worth a try if you are undecided!!

      I just started it. I am NOT the kind of person that usually joins a program online for weight loss but I decided to give Danette a try. You are right about the Facebook page needing to be positive—no one wants to hear someone complain. They can do that in their own house. I do believe that addressing the mental/spiritual aspect of health and good diet is very important to women. I look forward to making new, good habits.

    I can for one say that I was soooo sceptical of this program just like you may be but I needed a life changing event to make me get with the program and lose weight and so I got with this program! I had s rough start in the beginning on the 3 day detox I agree .. I got throwing up sick the 2nd day of detoxing on her program but stuck with it and I’m glad I did I’m 8 days in and have lost 16,5 lbs. you MUST be willing to follow the program to a “T” if you know your a cheater and will not be regimented enough to follow her guidelines.. than this is NOT for you! You HAVE to want it bad enough to stick to it! And you WILL lose the weight. I mean what’s the worst thing you could do on this?? Eat a cleaner diet ?? I know there are a LOT of naysayers on here talking down this 30 day challenge but I will say it DOES work. Are the materials s little bad?? Sure! Some of the picks don’t look like the recepies they send out in the weekly meal plans, but who gives a flying flip.. you paid $49 to do the 30 day challenge what do you expect? Do they try to sell you on a ton of other things ??yes! But just say “no thanks” and move on. We’re a couple meditation words a little strange ?? Yes.. get what you can from them and move on.. i for one had no expectations (other than to lose weight) so therefore for $49 bucks I was not disappointed. I’ve met soooo many awesome people on the Facebook 30 day challenge that we’re going through the same thing I was and helped support me through it .. I know there are thousands of women all over the world that are doing it with me right this very minute and are being successful on the program just like me. So try it if you want but I for one say STOP reading all this negative stuff!! This works if you want it bad enough like me.. start eating to live not living to eat!!!😘

    I have nothing but positive things to say about Danette’s workouts. She is supportive yet tells you to be accountable. I love her!
