7 Responses to Faster Way to Fat Loss Honest Review

  1. Thanks for this honest review! A couple people raved about FWTFL, the small group aspect, and personal attention/accountability from the coach – so I just joined the 9/9 group and I feel like I wasted the money already. There’s no small groups anymore, only the big FB group (1100+) – and it’s exactly how you described it – it’s total chaos – and I can already tell the coaches have missed a couple of my comments and questions. It’s like a herd of cattle going every direction. That’s not what I’m comfortable with at all. Ironically, I feel quite isolated and alone in the process (I didn’t have friends to sign up with). I’m trying my best to just do the program on my own, post for my own sense of accountability, copy the resources for afterwards, and move on. Another difference from what I thought it was, is that it’s 5 days of Regular Macro and 2 days of Low Carb, that’s it – so no “Low Macro” days. To me this not really carb cycling, but I can’t ask about it yet because I read ahead and we haven’t reached that training yet formally. Anyway, sorry to vent but I appreciated your page on this.

    • Hmmm, are you sure there aren’t small groups? I had some friends go through the July round and they were assigned to coaches and small groups. It does take a few days after the start date for them to get everyone assigned to a group, and I know a lot of people in my round had trouble finding the FB invites for their small group. Maybe they’ve adjusted the small groups to roll out a little bit later? I’d be REALLY surprised if they did away with them completely. It might be worth reaching out to customer service to clarify that. Honestly, for me, the “formula” of the back-to-back low carb days along with the fasting and macro tracking was all it took for me to see amazing results. Not only in lost pounds and inches (that I’ve kept off since June!) but in increased energy and less fatigue through the day. I felt the same way that you did after the first week – a little disillusioned by all the hype and feeling like I paid way too much for what I was getting – but if you focus on following the materials they gave you and taking advantage of all those resources to implement the program, I bet you’ll see good results. Looking back, I feel like I was oversold on some elements of the program, but I do think I got my money’s worth just in the strategies and nutrition plan alone; because here I am over 4 months later, still using it! Good luck – I’m confident you’ll rock this all on your own!

      • Ya after four weeks they said they were changing our portal and rolling our large FB group into a Larger VIP group? I didn’t care for it at that point. Maybe they meant smaller and I misunderstood? It sounded like it was going to be EVERYONE together or something because the video said “you’ll have more people to keep you on track and inspire you.” Since I had gained weight the first couple weeks with all the carb amounts, I wasn’t inspired to continue. To be fair, I’m sicker than others – with MS, IBS and Adrenal Fatigue, so I realize I need more healing and help than this can offer. Of course only after signing up they commented that I might need more attention (ya thanks). Even though I had emailed to see if they have others with these problems. That’s great news that your gut, hormones, and health are doing so well and have allowed you to see results! I’m happy for you!

  2. I did a round in March and had the SAME experience with the groups and the coach. No recipes. However, I got off track over the summer so rather than spend ANOTHER $200 I just need to get back to tracking. You are so right re: learning the formula.

    Thanks for your review (glad I wasn’t the only one who had a less than stellar experience after reading ALL the amazing things from so many bloggers)

  3. I’m doing it right now and I have a personal coach and am in a small Facebook group of 5 ladies. I’m not in that large Facebook group at all. My coach is pretty quick to respond to my Instagram DMs. I’m pretty disappointed that my coach doesn’t post recipes, but I follow quite a few coaches on Instagram so I find some great recipes. Lillieeatsandtells.com has some really delicious recipes and all the macro counts.

  4. My first FWTFL round began in mid-March. My coach was so-so. She had a baby midway through my round so there was a coach change. Rather than move to VIP right after my first round, I opted to go through a second round with a different coach (Lisa Coop) that I had found on IG and really admired. My second round was MUCH better.

    I’m NOT good about meal planning and I HATE HIIT workouts, but not due to any fault of the FWTFL program…that’s a character flaw in me. I did not do ANY workouts in the first round, just walked on a treadmill a few days a week for 30 minutes, but I still lost 20 lbs and 20 inches!!!

    I joined the VIP program simply for the workouts and the ability to contact the various experts (and there are quite a few). I have a friend that just completed the program with similar results. I agree COMPLETELY that there are organizational/structure/outreach changes needed. I’m not a fan of the portal, but honestly, I haven’t gone into it in the past month to see the changes made recently.

  5. Thank you for sharing so much detailed information as well as “real life” pros/cons. For someone considering this program, it was very helpful. I appreciate your authentic approach. Have a blessed day!
