About Trim Down Club
The Trim Down Club, located at www.TrimDownClub.com, was established by professional, certified nutritionists and dietitians as a place anyone can come to get the necessary tools and information to lose weight and keep it off.
The Trim Down Club will teach you how to eliminate the “bad” stuff from your everyday diet and replace it with the good stuff, whether your goal is to lose weight, gain strength and energy, or just all around feel better.
The program and tools promoted on Trim Down Club are based on proven ways to lose weight, and not on fad diets or by starving yourself. The club is designed for regular people who are just looking for simple tools and support to lose the weight and keep it off.
The Trim Down Club does not emphasize calorie counting, but rather puts all the focus on portion control and eating whole fresh foods rather than highly processed foods and refined sugars.
You can begin the Trim Down Club program as soon as you get access to the Quick Guide, though the website says it is important that you take the necessary time to go through all the helpful tools to get the best possible benefits.
According to TrimDownClub.com, the typical results of this diet include seeing weight loss within one month, downsizing clothes within six months, and even help re-starting weight loss within a few weeks of the dreadful plateau that all diets reach.
To join Trim Down Club, you must pay a one time fee of $47 to get the Quick Start Guide, the Trim Down Main Program, the Trim Down Club Cookbook, the Guide to Food Shopping the Proper Way, and all the available online tools.
And since Trim Down Club is a Clickbank product, they offer a 60 Day Refund Policy if you are unhappy with what you receive.

not sure it's worth it
Ive found not a lot of great tips...but just a lot of getting you to buy products from other sources. Lots of supplements not real food. Kind of disappointed.
Easy to adapt to. Comes with Menu Planner!
I have always been at war with my weight. Never could shift it and keep it off. Now that I have found the Trim Down Club, I have been able not only to lose weight, but also to maintain it. I have been taught about which foods to buy, and which foods not to buy. I’ve also learnt how to combine my foods so my body burns the fat instead of storing it. I am buying nothing but healthy foods and am making sure I am reading the labels, and am sticking to my menu plan. I don't think I would even be doing this if tdc hadn't shown me a menu where I could actually prepare, and eat the foods I enjoy without having to worry or feel guilty about what I am eating. Now I am not starving myself in order to get the results I want. I am eating and losing weight, and most importantly enjoying the process.
Preaching to the choir.
I got some good information out of the (overly long) sales pitch, but not really anything I didn't know already. I'll probably drink a little more green tea and put more meat on my sandwich at lunch as a result of what I learned, but I'm not into elaborate recipes. It's refreshing to see a healthy plan that's NOT about counting calories.
Two days in I'm left wondering what I paid for
It was an English nutritionist who gave the video presentation. I should have known it would be American as UK professionals are called dieticians. I've gone through the start process and created my week one menu. I've also purchased all the foods I need to follow it this week. Now I can't access the programme anymore.
To start it, it says download or access but it didn't download the software so I have nothing on my computer. I've emailed them but I have a feeling this is just a scam. It only cost me £37 but, if they're pulling in that amount from lots of people, then they're doing quite well.
I'll wait and see if I get a response but I doubt if I will.
Sue. From Yorkshire
I have been trying to get a phone number after several emails and no response.
I am not happy with this program and they had said when I signed up a 100% refund it will be one week tomorrow and no one has gotten back to me what a scam.
Does anyone have their number please share it on this site as we need to stop this rip off company
Save your noney
First thing after I started the purchase process I was required to read and reject several offers that if I didn't purchase "right now" would no longer be available. The actual diet plan in a nutshell is advice to not eat processed foods..only eat natural whole foods. Replace sweets with fruit, eat lots of veg. There are menu examples. I should have known better. What a waste of money. I can lose weight on my own. I guess I was looking for a way to make it easier, and this would not. First of all their premise is that everyone is the same. I cannot lose weight on their plan, because it is twice the amount of calories in one day that I need to reduce to in order to lose weight.
Refund for medical reasons
I hope the ones of you that are knocking, Trim Down, about refunds
are wrong... or my doctors will talk to them next. They sound like a very up front company. I just joined a couple of weeks ago and already asked once for a refund a few days ago, with my medical reasons. Guess we will see.
hello my name is Amy I signed up for the trim down club and it really wasn't for me. I asked for a refund by e-mail 3 maybe 4 times and they responded offering me an upgrade etc..... then they sent me the number to call but before I had a chance to call somehow it went missing from my email and when I requested the number again they haven't responded. does anyone know the number? please email it to me at email@example.com I am almost out of time to be eligible for a refund. Thanks and good luck getting your refunds
I am FURIOUS!!!
If I could give it ZERO stars, I would.
When I signed up I specifically asked for gluten- and dairy-free menus. Instead I was given a stock menu full of breads, pastas, cheeses and other dairy products. So I sent in a formal comment/email request for a better tailored menu.
After several days where no one responded to me, I asked for a refund. It was DENIED, and they offered me instead a 60-day guarantee of satisfaction instead. Plus another "free report."
After several more days, I asked again for a refund. Again, it was DENIED. (What about their 100% no-questions-asked refund policy?) And they gave me a phone number to call and explain myself.
Now, I have made my third request for a refund, and am writing this review. The program did not work for me -- but it may for others. The purpose behind this review is to let you know how awful the customer service is!
Keep your expectations real
I plan to use this to supplement what I've been doing with weight watchers. I see three big advantages to this over weight watchers: (1) this program takes into account individual needs/preferences - i.e. gluten free, no meat; (2) it's cheaper than WW - and you DON'T need to say yes to every promo that walks in your inbox - I jumped on this program b/c it presents info I've been craving - i.e. food pairings, especially important for me b/c I'm a vegetarian and (3) the website runs circles around WWs. I bought the basic program for $47 and then the healthy kitchen program for $67. I've done WW on/off for years (it's worked nicely for me but I've big time gotten into a rut)....and never really took the time to really think about the healthiest ways to prepare vegs - i.e. stir fry, steam, microwave - I usually tell myself if I'm eating vegs no matter how I eat them at least I'm eating them! You do need to be careful when you join that you say 'no thanks' to the add ons you don't want, but this takes your traditional weight loss program to another level...and does the thinking for you (i.e. menu planning) until you can do it yourself! (There is this amazing app - you plug in the ingredients you want to work with and it will kick out a weekly menu for you!)
Very misleading information on payment pages, ended up paying for something I didn't want. Despite emailing immediately i have been unable to get my money back for this. Like the person above I've been told to make expensive long distance phone calls to sort it out. If it was ordered on line and they can respond to emails they should be able to refund via the same route. Very disappointed with this company. Not at all reputable or trustworthy if they don't keep their promises of "no questions asked" refunds.
Wanted To Join But Couldn't!
After reading some of the reviews here I consider myself lucky that I never joined. I couldn't even get to the web page where you sign up! Kept getting DNS failure messages. After contacting them via their feedback link and explaining the problem they replied with a long email telling me all these things to try and to send them a screen print of the error message, which I did. And guess what? They responded with the exact same email that they sent the first time! Obviously a canned response. If their customer service is that bad when it comes to wanting to give them your money, how good can it possibly be after they get it?
hidden costs of joining
Trim Down Club sounded good at first. Only $49 dollars for life long membership. However, now I am inundated with emails that promise to reveal weight loss secrets. These emails contain lengthy videos with enticing, introductory phrases about how wonderful the information is going to be which are repeated and reworded several times before the "secret" is revealed which always turns out to be an ad for some "magic" supplement or drink mix that will solve everyone's weight problems. If I had chosen to buy these products I could easily be spending $100 or more per day. Even when I selected "unsubscribe" in the small print at the bottom of these messages, new emails promising the ultimate solution show up the next day and the next.
Warning!... Buyer beware
Despite its assurances to the contrary this organisation seems to do everything in its power to ensure that dissatisfied members are dissuaded from claiming back their membership fee...and after many emails back and forth I am still left wondering whether They will ever deliver on their promise. They have even resorted to insisting that my claim can only be dealt with by way of costly long-distance telephone calls with their accounts department...even though my membership and subsequent refund claim were dealt with by email...will their next move be to insist that I must visit their office in California in person. Be warned, this is not the supportive helpful organisation it purports to be. Steer clear.
I signed up after watching the video. It appeared a little intimidating at first. I didn't bother with any extras packages, 6 meals a day and a menu planner that needed some time and attention. After about 45 minutes I was ready to print my shopping list and headed to the store.
There were several questions I needed answered and I was able to get the answers to them, although I was directed to the forum for my questions about trying a gluten free diet. I got my answer.
The community is friendly and supportive.
After the first week I lost 2 lbs. I'm now in my 2 month and down 15lbs. I understand why this program worksh
I'm really happy with what was offered to me. It's an honest plan I say try it.
Worthless, and not completely accurate information. I bought it and promptly asked for a refund! I still haven't been refunded the money. Even though they assure me it is coming, I have yet to see it in paypal.
This is only after getting 3+ emails trying to talk me OUT of canceling.
As another reviewer noted, I have NO desire to eat Olives for breakfast! I was given the most unappetizing and bizarre mixtures of items for a meal and not at all for the normal time of day!
I am still waiting to get that refund!
Not really necessary---
If you do the research for yourself, you will not need to spend any money what so ever on this dietary plan. The above comment from the "soon to be" registered dietitian is wrong also--which is sad considering she went to school for this. The food industry teaches you what the government wants you to learn! Probably 70% of the world is under the misapprehension that certain foods are "healthy" but in actuality, they have been so modified that they lose their nutritional value and become, in a sense, toxic and harmful to your body!!! Whole wheat bread is not good for you, as it contains rye and or gluten. Both of these are horrible for you body as well as your skin and other things. By cutting out breads all together, you will notice a dramatic increase in your skin, hair, and overall health. However, if you must eat bread, there are some choices that do not contain wheat, rye, or gluten. Sprouted grain bread is very good and makes excellent toast :). The rest of the information presented in the video is pretty much accurate. Avoid refined sugars, processed foods, and GMO's. You also need to avoid inorganic fruits, veggies, and meats. These are loaded with things the government and food industries add in. Obviously, that means they cannot be good for you. Eating this products with chemicals, toxins, and carcinogens are known to cause cancer. Eat organic fruits (not too many--sugars), veggies (green, leafy ones are the best!), and meats. Add healthy beans, such as kidney, for your source of protein if you prefer not to eat meat. Also be sure to add supplements! Flax-seed oil is a great thing to add to your diet.
The biggest thing you can do----RESEARCH on your own.
-Dr Mark Hymen---an excellent doctor who knows the truth about the food industry and will get you on the right track mindset
--Dr David Brownstein--excellent Dr. that introduces you to the right foods that are good for your body and that also aid in the prevention (yes, I said prevention) of cancer!!
I subscribed today - Bahamas
I like the program. I chose the foods I like and the program customized a week of meals for me that seem reasonable in theory and sound tasty. I also love the fact that it provides a grocery list. I'm looking forward to giving it a whirl. I did weight watchers before and from the look of it this program shows promise of being better.
Don't know whether or not to try this
Can someone guide me on whether or not to try this. I am a diabetic and have gained 60-70 lbs in the last year and would like to get rid of it forever---PLEASE help----Sharon
I am going to give it a go, bought the membership today, but the automated menu options created by choosing your preferred foods are really ridiculous e.g. Soup with tofu on the side. Or, olives for breakfast. You do have a chance to change a food choice but that all takes time. Also, you have to choose the food items for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks, all separately, yet the choices are more or less the same for each, hence olives coming up for breakfast. Why don't the owners put all the foods in one list and ask us to chose our favourites once and then they can put them into sensible meal categories by default. It took me nearly 45 mins to choose my favourite foods to be offered olives for breakfast. Ridiculous! I will discover if the recipes page is worthwhile. Tomorrow I will plough thru the recipes and choose 7 dinners and go and do my weekly shop accordingly. Watch this space!
