The Trim Down Club was founded in 2012 by a group of nutritionists. B2C Media Solutions Ltd. is the company who owns The Trim Down Club and they are based out of Israel. They are a weight loss membership program, aimed to educate people on the benefits of eating healthy with support communities and menu plans.*The cost is $47.00 for a one-time membership fee, and there have been complaints about getting upsold on more products once you are enrolled as a member. The support system as a whole is poor, and they do not provide any numbers to call. There has been word from many past customers that the refund policy is a scam, and they do not honor their money back guarantee.* With expensive exercise books, supplements, and non-informational videos provided after purchasing the membership on the website, I would save your money and time from this program.
Do Dieters Lose Weight On The Trim Down Club?
Nowhere on the website, was I able to see any clinical studies done on the products and the reasoning behind the program. You first have to purchase a membership before you can see any books, or supplements offered on the side. It was stated on the site that they had a registered dietitian named Ossie Sharon who was responsible for the menu plans and information, but no other details were given about the science behind the program. We all know that information alone does not cause weight loss. Because this is a do-it-yourself program, whether or not it works is up to the member. After looking into the program more in depth, it seems like there are many add ons to trick the customer into thinking they need to spend more money to get better results.*
Is The Trim Down Club Easy To Follow?
If you do not like to read a lot of material, and listen to empty promises then this program will not work for you. You can take 30 day, or 60-day challenges depending on the progress you need to make. To wrap up the program free of charge, they simply encourage people to use portion control when consuming meals, as well as eliminating processed foods and refined sugars from their diets.* The website is said to be confusing to navigate around in, and the videos are only used to upsell customers to new products. Overall, this program is not user friendly because of the poor customer service, and not so friendly website.
Because this is a meal, and menu planner there have been minor side effects reported such as lack of energy due to diet change, nausea, and withdrawal symptoms from sugar. In general, this program is a membership program full of videos, and advice on diet. All in all, the program has a website that is hard to navigate through, and charges you for tools that you can access for free online.
When looking into their Facebook and Twitter accounts there was an inconsistent number of followers to activity. The content that was being posted was also not getting very many likes and re-tweets from the customer and follower base despite the high follow rate. Many times these numbers can be bought or fabricated to look like a company is more popular than it really is. You can only buy their subscription and products through their website, which is a problem because of the money back issues you may run into.
This program is unnecessary as many people can obtain the same information online, free of charge. There are many support communities out there, for people looking to lose weight. I would not waste my money on this membership, because once you are committed you are constantly getting up-sold to new products that you might not necessarily need. The money back guarantees, and customer service also are not comforting with their bad track records from previous customers. This is an overpriced membership service that I would not invest my time or money in.
