What I mean by basic is that I didn't buy anything else they offered....no powders, pills, newsletters or magazines, etc....just get the program and say to everything else.

www.beyonddiet.com

I think that's the url.

Im interested in that program, the basic one. But I am having problems in finding which one is the basic program, do you Havre the link or something?

This has worked for me. I've lost 33 pounds since 12/26/15 and am quite happy with the meal plans (I needed something besides the SparkPeople meal plans, which I've been on for 7 years).

I purchased the basic program. As someone else said, you really don't need anything else, no newsletter, no books, no protein powder...etc. I, too, was disgusted with the number of initial emails I got trying to up sell me something else. I stuck my ground and just went basic. I've also stuck to the meal plans.

As of now, I am still referring to the meal plans and the recipes. It has changed my way of eating and I couldn't be more pleased.

Advise I'd have to anyone considering this plan:
1) Stick to the basics ONLY, the one time fee, and learn what you can from it.
2) Stick to the diet. Yes, it may be common sense for some folks but it wasn't for me and it really helped jump start my weight loss.
3) Get on the forum inside of BD and ask questions. They are quick to answer.
4) Try not to get too disgusted with the ad-on ads. Just either delete them or unsub from them and move on with your weight loss.

Feel free to pm me with any questions you might have.

I had already tried all the ones they suggested. But it couldnít be of great assistance. I couldnít sustain it throughout. I almost wasted my time in this. I searched so many weblogs and tried some of them also. The end result was still the same. Two weeks before I chanced to see a weblog on a bulletproof diet with organic food products which I found it genuine. It had mentioned things that we would usually ignore. Itís the third week I am following that, I could see the wonderful changes in me.

I just finished watching the video that was on FB. I think I can cut out the processed foods (specifically Sweet N Low and margarine) without spending the money on the program. It makes sense to eat fruits, veggies and good proteins and fat. I like the Clean Eating method as well --- eat nothing that you can't pronounce and it should have less than five ingredients. Save your money!

For anybody who gave them your credit card and found the company to be less than reliable, I'd recommend cancelling the card and getting a new number/card. It's also helpful to have a card you use for online purchases separate from the card you use for any recurring costs. You have to be careful who you trust. Notice that many of the users saying it's great have exactly one post and are most likely somebody marketing this product.

Yes, I've been the Beyond Diet since January 11th and I'm in complete shock at the results. (I'm post menopausal) I've tried numerous diets, exercises, and too many supplements to name and nothing has compared to the success of this! I'm down 22 pounds and over 10" lost in 9 weeks without exercising. All you need is the basic plan!

I had a listen to the story/tutorial and to me (this is just my thought on it mind u) it seems very much along the lines of eating low GI and eating every 3 hours...something that was actually great for me quite a few years ago and then i fell off the wagon, especially when my step son was diagnosed a celiac , so I decided to be his "Food Buddy." The problem arose when I discovered Gluten free flour and I have been going baking crazy. The problem with many gluten free flours....rice and potato flour, therefore once again High In GI...silly me

I have been actively using Beyond Diet for a year and a half now and am very happy with my results. I paid $97. plus I purchased the dessert recipes for an additional 14.95. I was initially charged the first couple of months for the newsletter. When I contacted them to cancel, they did so immediately. I have lost the weight (30 lbs). and feel great! I would recommend Beyond Diet.

I have used this program for years and have invested in several of the options provided. Isabella absolutely gets what healthy food is and when I first heard the 'a peel' back in 2008 or so, I was impressed. What even impressed me more was the cost and the value for my Canadian Dollar! If I never wanted to spend another cent I would still get the great recipes I can log onto and get now.

What is great about any of the programs is that the food plan is clearly laid out for you from morning till night with snacks as well. Honestly sometimes too much food for me. The portion sizes are also very clear. I would and have highly recommended this diet to my friends because I know that the quality of the food program. The exercises are simple but in this area I choose to follow P90X3 and some of the other Beach Body programs.

Many people say they it clean but eat food with nitrates or powdered shakes full of crap! It actually disgust me when I read the ingredients on them. Once again Beyond Diet, Isabella is well informed and provides a guideline for eating that promotes true health. You can absolutely find this information free elsewhere on the net but most people like it laid out in black and white with a follow the dots process. Isabella will provide that for you. It may sound like I'm a friend of hers promoting her website, but I'm not! I'm a Canadian from the center of Canada who happened to find her website one Saturday morning 8 years ago and loved it then as I do now!

to join it was $37 they added on 14.95 for a monthly fee for who knows what.. It was attached to the bill I could not take it off..after watching a 30 min video telling me all these awesome things i would get for free. I decided to let them charge monthly fee.. i figured I would call and have it removed. well after 20 attempts to contact them in every way possible. I have not heard back form anyone 1/28/16

Liked your post, cuz I also am pre diabetic, and have high blood pressure, even tho my weight is in a good range......I'd like to get the DVD....I'm 70, but very active....more so in summer, cuz I hike, SUP board, swim and kayak, in winter I mostly just walk and do a few boring exercises at home. In the little resort village I live in, the land is ALL FLAT, I like hills, and our lake is glacier fed, so too cold in winter. thx again!

Beyond Diet is not working for me. I have completed 3 weeks on the Protein plan and I'm completely frustrated. My husband thinks I've been scammed. I've put so much effort in, reading the entire book/s, researching via the forums when I have questions, learning and purchasing the recommended foods and their classifications, etc., shopping several times a week (and spending twice as much as I usually spend on groceries), documenting everything daily (food, exercise and health), testing recipes, and more. I have lost basically zero pounds - which is completely demotivating. Maybe it's only designed to work for those with a lot of weight to lose? Not sure, but what I am sure of is Beyond Diet does not work for me. I have about 15-20 pounds to lose and testing this diet has put me behind about 4 weeks. I'm pretty ticked off actually because of the time and resources wasted.

I started beyond diet at the same time I started Spark. I really love her plan & recipes, and my meals are more centered around it than Spark. She also has really great recipes. Her plan is high protein, low carb. No refined anything, no sugar, organic (I'm gradually switching over), no flour, very low refined carbs. There are certain carbs that she counts that I don't. For example, I consider foods such as lettuce, bell peppers, celery to be free foods, but she counts them as carbs.

However, her site is more about selling more stuff to you. When you first sign up, it's actually a nuisance. I just declined everything other than her basic plan. I don't log my food & exercise on there because Spark is set up way more nicely.

While her site relies on selling stuff, Spark relies on ads. The difference is Spark ads are always in your face whereas hers are only in the initial signup. Her site is pretty bland as far as a community goes, there is none. And no goodies like articles, videos, and such, so I spend my time on Spark while following her lifestyle.

I am very satisfied with her plan & I love Spark, so I'm glad I have both.

Well, I found this post after I just signed up. I'm going to give it a try. I spent $37 on the program and signed up for the monthly report $14.95/month (which I get an email saying it's there, and it is located on the website... so they tell me). I can cancel the monthly updates anytime. I did call the toll free number with questions, and after about 5 minutes on hold someone answered. They were very pleasant and helpful. Plus I can cancel and get my money back up to 60 days.
I'll update with reviews after a week or so. I'm not starting until Feb 1st, the day I get back from vacation.

Just to clarify - a nutritionist is NOT a regulated profession in training, continuing education, licensing or certification.

The regulated profession is a Registered Dietitian (RD) also known as Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN). These are the individuals who have gone to school for nutrition and dietetics (college degree-often advanced degrees-Masters and Doctorate) and have national and state certification and license requirements for schooling, training and ongoing continuing education. Individuals with these credentials have completed specific academic and supervised practice requirements, successfully completed a registration examination and maintained requirements for recertification. The definition and requirements for the term "nutritionist" vary. Some states have licensure laws that define the scope of practice for someone using the designation nutritionist. A nutritionist alone is a title anyone can use with their name whether or not they have any of the above. The "training" that is offered for "nutritionist" can vary greatly in content and length of time to finish with no ongoing education requirement to stay current .

Look for RD or RDN after the name of the professional you are seeking nutrition and dietary advice. This is the regulated professional you will find on health and medical teams for nutrition and dietary information.

HI there,
My husband just paid money to buy your program. But he is not happy the program after paid the money $120. I have tried to reached you. But you keep sending us back the same email and asked us to call a number which is not exist. It will be nice if you could someone could call us or please give us a online chat link. Because we need our money back. The program completely is not worthy the money. PLEASE CONTACT ME.

This is basically a knock off of the Whole30 program. You can go to the Whole30 Website for FREE and get the same plan. Don't waste your money to get The Beyond Diet Plan. It's essentially eating WHOLE, NATURAL FOODS found in NATURE, no additives, preservatives, or hormones. Check out Whole30 for basically the same plan for FREE.

I found that Beyond Diet as an online service is a TOTAL SCAM. I only purchased the minimum and was able to access the program all day yesterday. Today I was not able to log on and the 800 telephone number from their site as well as the one listed in the credit card were busy. So I called the credit card co. to get the charge removed from my bill.

I have all the Beyond diet books and have been getting the $15/mo emails from them. Don't waste your money. Summary is as FATCHICK8759 says: just eat natural, healthy food. Website is difficult to navigate and you'll spend hours trying to find what you are looking for. If you get on the monthly email program, you do get lots of emails but they aren't worth $15/month! Save your money. I've been trying to get someone to help me stop the monthly drain from my credit card and can't get anyone on the phone! What a surprise....

Like others, I exited BeyondDiet's droning ad (which I muted) quickly. The text contained at least two typos--ironically, one was "wallett".

(As fan of "Eats, Shoots, Leaves", that specific misspelling triggered grave concern--similar to those related to losing weight.) emoticon

When searching for information on Beyond Diet, I notice your comment about don't drink calories. I'm interest in what the problems would be in juicing vegetables and fruits and adding protein powder sometimes. I appreciated the information you gave as well as the two recipes. Thanks. I am not going to purchase the program.

this site is such a positive change in my life. After years of paying and paying for one diet program after another, I'm coming here and reading great advice from all of you. Thanks for writing about this new diet. I'm usually a sucker for these, thinking that just by paying money I will lose weight. Now I record my food, my exercise, and turn here to get the feedback I need.

Hi,
I just wanted to thank you for your post. Whenever I am on Facebook that stupid ad for Beond Diet shows up and I was so curious what the five bad foods are. I started to watch their video but it was taking forever. Anyway, I started searching the 5 foods and that led me to this website and that's where I found your posts! So I had to sign up on sparkpeople just to thank you for your very interesting post, lol!

I like spark,people over all other programs. I do no consider it a diet, I make better choices. I purchased the cook book and the tracker.
Unless we learn how to eat healthy and prepare we will never stop the weight jojo which is totally unhealthy. Bad for your heart and bone density.

I lost 37 pounds by just eating healthy and following the good tips. I love coach Nicole I have the DVD work out 6 days a week. If you're u can sit in front of the TV you will have time to workout.

We owe it to our health, I rather do this than take a pill. I am off blood pressure pills now, no longer pre diabetes. My Dr. said to me do you want to take a handful of pills
Or do you want to learn to eat healthy.
No brainer for me. Believe me I discovered fresh fruits and veggies are cheaper than eating chips, store brought cookies and other junk.
I am proud of all of us, because we are triune hard every day.
Always remember one day at the time.

Sounds like from the reviews that it's all regurgitated information, packaged into "the next best thing", and making your hard-earned money. Sorry.
I hope if you buy it that it works for you. I'm sticking with this site.

I've been doing the Beyond Diet since March. My dad and my daughter are also doing it. I haven't been as "strict" as my dad, so my results aren't as good. But, without working out he has lost 50 lbs, I have lost 25 lbs and my daughter has lost 30 lbs.
What I like about it is how EASY it is, it tells you what to eat and when to eat it, there is some prep involved, so you can't slack. On being prepared. But I really like that it provides you a grocery list, plus it saves you from every mothers nightmare.... figuring out what to make for dinner!!! ;-)
One tip for you: rotisserie chicken!!! It's a lifesaver during the first 14 days.

Also - I purchased the $47 online package and the monthly newsletter (for a one time $10 charge I believe it was), THAT IS ALL. I have never been charged since the original transaction, but during the ordering process they definitely do try to upset you, repeatedly!!

This company does not care about their members, they are just making millions of dollars of info that can be found online. Just be smart about what you eat if you want to change your diet. The nutritionist is a certified nutritionist which doesn't mean that she has a degree. There are many certified programs where you get a certificate as a nutritionist. It's not brain surgery, anyone can easily teach themselves how to eat healthy. As for the customer service team, they try their best but the people above them could care less about giving refunds or the ordering process.

Just do a Google search for Tabasco Chili Starter Tomatoes and you will see a picture of the jar. The reason why I chose to use Tabasco Chili Starter Tomatoes is because its healthy. Its in a jar instead of a can and the ingredients are all natural.

Agreed to buy their membership and even three books, then received a confirmation on screen (no email at all), started using the site, it was interesting but baffling at first, then got logged out after about an hour. And then I cannot log in. I am sure I know my password. But the function 'forgot your password' does not work either, it says my mail is unregistered. How come unregistered if I was actively using the meal plans, the type test and ASK section?? Of course no support during weekend. I cannot understand how a page that earns a lot by selling all this additional stuff can have no 7/7 customer support? So as a result I paid 47+29 and have nothing, not even an email confirming my membership. Is that normal and user-friendly? Another thing that irritated me is that they have no automatic conversion to metric system. In ASK section they claim they are working on it (dated 3 years ago) and it seems no result of this is yet visible. Does it take more than 3 years to provide a function of metric system? I am indeed unhappy.

I was going to try the Beyond diet program glad I came here to read about it. I just need to go back to what I did before it was working for me till I messed up. Eating protein carb fat at each meal for six meals a day I was not hungry I didn't have to count calories just watch my portion size.

Motsy's Amazingly Healthy Chili

16 oz bag of dried Kidney beans (soaked overnight, plus rinsed in the morning)
16 oz bag of dried Black beans (soaked overnight, plus rinsed in the morning)
2 pounds organic Ground meat (seasoned, cooked & drained - add an hour before serving)
10 diced fresh Roma Tomatoes (5 for cooking & 5 to add just before you serve it)

I subscribed to Beyond Diet (originally the diet solution) a couple years ago. It worked great for me but as I investigated more I found that it was basically a paleo diet (eating meat, fruits, Legumes, nuts and veggies with emphasis on eliminating grains and white starchy foods). I followed this for 6 months and dropped over 50 pounds and the only I thing I changed was what I was eating.

You've got to be intentional when it comes to eating right. It just isn't going to happen. You've got have good food choices around you so you are not forced to make bad decisions because you have nothing healthy available. Example: in your desk and car have nuts and jerky available instead of chips and crackers. Junk food has almost no nutritional value and just kills your metabolism. Also, when eating out make the healthy choice of steak, salad and veggies instead of pasta or a baked potato, plus stay away from the appetizer, soda and the dessert.

Second, don't drink your calories and instead drink water. You should be drinking half your weight in ounces of water each day. Third, stay away from the 8 "white devils", which are; refined sugar (including high fructose corn syrup & artificial sweeteners), dairy products (this includes milk and cheese which is full bad fat), refined salt (this includes table salt and MSG), anything made from corn (no kernals and no chips), anything made from wheat (bread & pasta), white rice (brown rice is fine), white potatoes (sweet potatoes are fine) & alcohol.

Basically you want to stay away from processed foods and focus on eating whole foods such as meat, fruits and veggies. Nuts and beans are also fine. You also want to stay away from bad fats such as deep fried foods, canola oil, soybean oil, dairy, hydrogenated oil and trans fats. Instead consume the good fats which are coconut oil (for high heat pan frying), olive oil (for low heat pan frying), avocados and nuts (including healthy nut butters such as almond butter and cashew butter - with no transfat or hydro oil).

You've got to realize that those "white devils" are simple carbs that get converted to sugar fast and when consuming them regularly it make it almost impossible to lose weight unless you are under the age of 30 or you are working out over an hour each day. Also, regular consumption of those "white devils" will also make you a diabetic. If you want to learn more about why these white devils are so bad then I encourage you to read the two books titled "Wheat Belly" and "Grain Brain". They go more in depth but just remember that we are not cattle. Grains are hard on our body. You also should not go to bed on a full stomach. In fact, you should not eat anything within 3 hours of going to bed.

Sure you can have "cheat days" but make them few and far between. Try to stay away from the "white devils" and processed food for at least 5 if not 10 days straight. Then yes have a cheat day or better yet a cheat meal and then go right back to eating healthy the next day, or even the next meal. Your body will get to the point that the cheat days will screw with your bowels and almost repulse you. On the healthy days you will feel so much better and full of energy.

Just try to stick to whole foods and start reading your labels. If it has more than 5 ingredients or has words you can't pronounce then you probably should not be eating it. All that processed crap and chemicals is overwhelming your liver and kidneys, whose job is to clean out your body. However, they can't do that if you are full of all these foreign chemicals that they trying to filter out. Just remember that there is good fat and bad fat. Meat and dairy you buy from the grocery is bad fat, unless its free range grass fed organic which is very hard to find in the store.

I buy my eggs from local farmers at the farmers market but Egglands Best cage free or free range eggs bought at the grocery will suffice. Did you know that free range eggs have the healthy fat like olive oil that will clean out your arteries instead of clog them? Did you know that free range grass fed organic beef has more healthy omega oils then wild caught salmon? Yes you are going to spend some more on the front end by eating higher quality meat, fruits and veggies. However, it will really cost you less in the long run because you won't have all those doctor bills from your health being poor and you will also live a longer life.

What we have to notice is that our food 50 years ago was not mass produced and full of chemicals. Today's food has been hybridized and dumbed down to the point that we are consuming more calories and getting less nutrition. We should be eating like cavemen ate but instead we are eating like its Thanksgiving dinner every single day. The result is an epidemic to where 2 out of 3 american's have a BMI over 29, thus they are considered obese. We have all been food guinea pigs the last few decades and there is no wonder why the number of people with cancer and diabetes has quadrupled in that time.

Last but not least, I always keep some of my healthy white chili and healthy traditional chili made up and frozen into individual servings. This way I've got a quick healthy meal ready to go if I didn't have time to make my lunch of dinner. My white chili and traditional chili recipes or full of all kinds of amazingly healthy things but also taste great. I can post those two recipes if you like.

Also, one of my healthy snacks is a banana and a scoop of healthy nut butter. I have found a banana each day helps my IBS, well that and eating right. I'm sure some people will disagree with some of what I said above here but I am proof it works. However I do want to note for the money you spend on Beyond Diet you do get some nice paleo recipes but then again a quick search online can give you some paleo recipes too.

I think Beyond Diet has adopted (hired), or been adopted (licensed), by a marketing operation which in my opinion is predatory. It takes advantage of the legitimate needs of web users and the weakness of their web skills. It is the internet version of rolling together the old snake oil routine, carnival pitchmen, door-to-door sales, and television infomercials, now relentlessly encoded in web pages. Remember Ronco? Google 'the history of the pitchman'.

This kind of 'pitching' is usually associated with cheap junk no one would actually buy without the 'pitch.' There was even a program of competing pitchmen selling highly unlikely products. However, this post is not about the validity of the Beyond Diet program or its author's professional skills, but the web marketing technique which I find repulsive and now absolutely refuse on principle.

I've seen several web pages of this same approach to selling something and got snagged at least twice only to find I had been suckered. It seems the droning length of the video is a test to see if you really want the product as if your impatience is leveraged to produce a buy decision. I endured the droning and bought one item which I later found exactly the same thing for free on another web site.

The little listening I did on the Beyond Diet pitch sounds like it is founded on good facts. Those good facts I 'googled' and ended up here. However, I will no longer waste my time being wooed by excessive smooth talk that just drones on and on. I now immediately close web pages operating on what I describe as aggressive money grabbing techniques. They usually include glaring money back guarantees and easy spending mistakes. It is much easier to click the 'buy now' button than to find the 'decline' button (Where's Waldo!). When I am surprised now by the 'credit card' page, I kill the page; done! But they usually got my email first. It is like getting stuck to the proverbial tar baby, or hooked by a fishing machine which needs some good bait on the hook in order to entangle the customer till they spend. Again, I believe the author and her work are probably valid and maybe excellent. Respectfully to Isabel De Los Rios, I will not purchase Beyond Diet based on these reasons.

Not really a meal plan, but you can see some of the recipes if you go to the website. I'm sure it's not a huge sampling of recipes, but if it's all food you hate that should tip you off there.

Is there any place to see a sample meal plan. I don't want to pay $47.00 if I don't like anything in the meal plan.

I recently paid the $47. Didn't have to buy anything else or get pressured to do so.

Here's why I bought it. I'm 51 years old. Calorie counting left me hungry.. and still not losing weight. In the past 6 months, is as though my metabolism left the building. I was frustrated and decided that I should see a nutritionist. Random Googling took me to beyond diet.

I'm eating more calories, about 375 - 400 more, daily. I'm not hungry, in fact I'm having a hard time fitting in all the foods. I feel less bloated, lost 4.5 pounds since May 30th, and because I'm nursing an injury, unable to work out consistently.

I knew I needed to balance my insulin (not a diabetic) to avoid fast storage mode but I have a busy life and someone telling me exactly how much of this and that I need each snack and meal is helping me streamline this change into my life. And the recipes taste good - seasonings and pairings that I'd never have tried on my own because I just don't usually eat like this.

As my mom says, take what you can use and leave the rest. I've read reviews where people say, "this plan doesn't work." And then give 3 examples of how they refused to follow the plan. Trying to balance your insulin levels isn't going to work if you are eating fast food every lunch, or substitute a healthy carb with Mac and cheese because you don't want to eat vegetables, or if you never logged in to the website, or actually followed the plan. I already tried getting fit with pizza and pasta, steak and baked potatoes dropping with butter... that was my plan. It doesn't work, so if I really want something different, I have to do something different. (I've already tried stamping my foot and whining that I want my wine - it didn't work either.)

So this time, I'm going to fully commit to following a plan that isn't my own.

I purchased the Beyond Diet Supercharged 14 day meal plan about three months ago (the twofer deal for $47, or something like that). I'm also vegetarian, so I opted to pay more for the vegetarian meal plans and recipes - that extra splurge was a huge waste of money - it's easy to modify the regular meal plans to make them vegetarian or vegan friendly with beans or nuts for protein. Her vegetarian meal plans are a total joke.

I lost 20 pounds in two weeks and maintaining that weight loss has been easy. The diet itself is basic - don't eat processed foods or sugars, watch your portion sizes (portions are REALLY small on this plan, but you get used to it within a few days) and regular snacking to maintain your blood sugar and insulin levels - you're eating five times a day on this plan - lots of raw nuts and veggies. It's mostly common sense stuff we all know but ignore as we reach for the twinkies and processed foods anyway. Three months later, I'm still sticking to the diet plan. I have reached my target weight, and I feel so much better eating healthier, whole foods.

But the marketing makes me want to tear my hair out (as other reviewers have said), she sends emails sensationalizing health "problems" like: "Don't EVER eat this carb again!" and then if you want to find out what it is, you have to click on a link and watch an infomercial for 20 minutes before you find out. It's total crap. She's obviously making money selling our email addresses to marketers. I opted out of the emails because they're full of worthless drivel. Get the meal plan and her recipe books, don't waste your money on anything else.

Yes, my sister paid $65 in July 2014 for a two-fer; she never even logged in to claim her membership. I get the daily (sometimes twice daily) e-mails, which are almost exclusively ads for other web diet grifters. It was a profoundly useless waste of money. The information is typically anodyne to the point of useless, or, as I indicated, a solicitation to spend more money for rare dietary supplements or special olive oil, or some other breathless deal.

Today, on the heels of another solicitation e-mail, I googled for a review site for Beyond Diet, and here I am. It looks like I have a lot of company, old too soon, smart too late. There is nothing new or useful, or even attractively packaged about the information that is conveyed. I wish I had filed for a refund within the 60 days, and if I had been on my own in the decision, I would never have spent my own money. I tried to warn my sister, but she was pretty insistent and I was recovering from surgery.

My advice is keep your money in your pocket. Try the free calorie counter and food tracker on LiveStrong, and if that feels right, pay them $3.75 a month for Gold membership and participate in the community there. I've tracked my eating off and on there, and found that in itself motivating, but I've never gone into the paid subscription service.

I think I'll do that now.

Bunderthun - you are incorrect that the $47 is an annual fee - I purchased this plan several years ago, paid the $47 one time, have had full access to the plan, website, etc. ever since. They have added a number of different things to their original plan, but to my knowledge there is no yearly charge unless you signed up for the online magazine.

I agree, Buyer Beware!!! I, too, signed up for this because the video said it was a "one time" charge of 47$ for a "lifetime" membership. Come to find out this is a yearly charge. In addition, you keep getting offered add-ons and when you try to click "decline offer", it defaults to process your order which in turn costs you more money. I ended up being charged 181 for stuff I did NOT want. I got no where by emailing, so I called them, got hung up on the first 2 calls, and finally on the 3rd call was able to speak with someone and had all of my money refunded within 2 days.

I spent $195.95 for the following:

PURCHASES
Date Order # Product Price
1/6/2015 1674125 Beyond Diet Program $47.00
1/6/2015 1674125 BD Anytime Anywhere $77.00
1/6/2015 1674125 Beyond Diet Monthly Vol 13 $14.95
1/6/2015 1674125 BD Smart Coaching + Fast Five Fitness $57.00

and my checking account has been charged $14.95 for the months of Feb, March & April. I have been corresponding with Mallorie Anderson (by email) since Feb 10 trying to cancel my program and get a refund on the books I sent back to them on Feb 14th and they were in receipt of them on Feb 18th. Since my correspondence to Mallorie on March 16th demanding my refund for the books and the charge made to my checking account on March 9th I have not heard a word from her. Instead my bank account was charged another $14.95 on April 6th.

With the run around I have gotten, I would urge anyone and everyone who is considering joining Beyond Diet NOT TO DO IT.

This part is for Beyond Diet - you can find me in your data base under the name of Constance Lowther, and I'm still waiting for my refund, as well as demanding that you DO NOT charge my checking account for any additional money.

All I can say to the general public is BUYER BEWARE, YOU WILL GET FAR MORE THAN YOU'VE BARGAINED FOR!!!! emoticon

Hi, everyone! It's good to be here, it's my very first participation.

What brought me to Spark People was a Google search on the Beyond Diet. And I got directly to this thread, which I have read from head to toe, and I can say I have learned a lot, especially from different points of view.

I was in doubt whether to purchase or not the BD program. I have decided NOT to do it, for one particular reason: the comments about their website having you purchase extra items and not making it any easy to login. I don't believe it's necessarily a scam, but it's at least a very disorganized and confusing portal.

But there's one thing that I don't think would stop me from purchasing a program (if proven to be good): the $47 fee. Some of you pointed out that we can find everything about eating healthily in a couple of hours research. I'm sorry, but there wouldn't have to be a regulated profession called Nutritionist if all one has to learn about food comes down to a couple of reading hours. Seriously, these professionals have to study for, at least, a couple of YEARS to learn something that Google can't teach. And I think we must respect that.

And if I have to go to a Nutritionist for an appointment, I'm going to pay more than $47 in one session, which I have done already. So, again, if one person looks for professional help, they have their reasons, and shouldn't be so harshly criticized.

Searching information on Google can be productive, it has helped me a lot many times, it even brought me here today! Going to lirbaries can be productive too, but a Nutritionist has to spend much more than one afternoon at a library. Even self-learners that graduate from home need some guidance to focus their study and to select content. All I'm saying is that "some research" is just the tip of an iceberg, otherwhise, let's all just throw away our Diplomas and graduate from Google University.

So I propose we all chill out, enjoy one another's point of view and respect the Nutritionists.

Cheers!

Hi Flavia-Lyon,

I'm sorry you're having this issue. It's really upsetting to us to hear that a customer is not being taken care of.

It's unusual that we are unable to respond to customer's requests if they are sent to info@beyonddiet.com, or if we are called at 1-800-815-1941 (Monday - Friday, 8am - 6:30pm ET). We did experience increased call/ticket volume after the New Year, but it looks like you tried to reach us recently.

I wasn't able to locate you in our database using Flavia-Lyon so we cannot reach you directly via email or phone. Unfortunately, this means I have to ask you to email or call us so we can correct this issue for you immediately. It would not be inappropriate to ask for that information over this public forum.

I really hope we're able to resolve this for you. One of our friendly Customer Service Reps will take care of you if you call or submit a ticket via email.

Thank you, and best of health to you,
Pamela

I'm french and i live in France. I suscribed to the beyond diet program, 10 days ago and also payed for it. I received a lot of e-mail, asking me if i had began the diet. All the links that i tried to use to reach the website don't work. I haven't been able to log me in. And no way to reach beyond diet by e-mail.

What's up with this web site, what can i do ?

Thanks for your answer,

I had the same problem. Did you get the "welcome to Beyond Diet" email. If so go back to that email and look for a line in really small text that says something like "if text isn't displaying or if pictures aren't displaying click this link.' (I'm doing this from memory because I deleted the email once I registered.) that was how I finally got to the page to register. Hope this helps

I ordered the program this Saturday and had no issues with logins. Although I have not started the program I do concur with those that have stated positive things. It is definitely a way of life -- everything at least natural nothing artificial and preferably organic.

What I really liked is that they not only provide meal plans but give you how many proteins, carbs and fats to eat at each meal.

If you read all the materials you really start to understand nutrition,

So it is truly beyond diet! I paid 49 plus a another small amount for a monthly newsletter -- total 61. Yes you can order a lot more and it will drive up the price but you do not have to buy them if you do not. It really is a personal preference.

BUT BE AWARE AND BE PREPARED IT IS NOT A DIET ALTHOUGH IF FOLLOWED YOU WILL LOSE WEIGHT BUT REALLY A NEW WAY OF LIVING AND EATING. IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DO THIS MORE THAN LIKELY IT WILL NOT HAVE LASTING RESULTS!

What i do like about it better than Weight Watchers and such plans is that they do not make you aware of the effects of all the chemicals in foods and what it is doing to your body. It is not just this program saying this but lots of nutritionists.

Nutritionists are very expensive. If you are disciplined and have no health issues I think this is the best I have seen on the market.

I actually purchased it to understand how to combine food groups so that the food is used efficiently and completely as possible.


They also have a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee.

I'm getting very disgusted with Beyond Diet's website. I've tried for several days now to "login" but I can't get registered. I have tried calling there customer service number twice. Once I was on hold while they waited on someone else, my cell phone dropped the call so I called back but never got anyone to answer the phone. This was after listening to a constant ringing for 10 minutes. I also tried logging in by selecting the "forgot my password" button, but I got no where with that either because BD just sent me the same link all over again to the log in page. I am about to the point of contacting my credit card and refusing payment of their product. This is a last ditch effort. Is there anything I can do to get registered on their website and gain access to the stuff I purchased?

For those of you who didn't receive the log in email, try clicking the "log in" link on the site and entering the email you registered with... then click "forgot password" -- most sites will send you an email that will allow you to "reset" your password and gain access to the site, even if you did not receive the initial email to set up an account. This has worked for me with other sites in the past. Good luck :)

How long did it take for you to get your User Name and Password? My email is NOT in my SPAM Folder.

I also paid for Beyond Diet on 1-1-15 and have not received a User Name or Password like they said upon giving them my MasterCard number. This does not make a new buyer feel very comfortable. Please have your staff do what is promised. If I don't receive this by tomorrow, I am calling MasterCard to cancel my order.

Their customer service number is 1-800-815-1941, and their hours are Monday - Thursday, 8am - 6:30pm ET & Friday, 8am-2pm ET. They are legitimate and most definitely not a scam.

I believe you should have received an email from them regarding your membership. You may need to check your spam box and see if it's there.

I am also going to be cancelling my "membership" with beyond diets. I haven't been able to access the program or get a response from them. I love the notice that says basically that they are answering calls as they come in....but I haven't been able to find a phone number to call. ..so emailed and still NOTHING. emoticon

HI, you said you work at beyond diet, please help me, I signed up sunday, I know it is christmas holidays still, but I did expect to instantly get user name and pw to log on to the site, I dont know what to do, I feel I have been scammed, I also felt trapped at the cook book screen after signing up. What is wrong with the site, I cant contact with any of the links on the main screen , they go no where.
Regards
Jenny

I signed up at the weekend, very concerned as I have not received user name or password so I can access it. $47 is not a lot, but I am worried.
