Trim Down Club Review – Is It Worth The Hype?

The trim down club has created quite a buzz in the weight loss world over the last few weeks. Anywhere you go, you are hit by their “5 foods to not eat” video, which then encourages you to take “membership” in their club.

In this detailed, no nonsense trim down club review, we will be diving deep into this club, whether it’s worth your time (coz it’s not pricy, your time is more of the price), and more importantly, whether it works or not!

So if you have come here to get more information about the trim down club, you have come at the right place. Now, before we begin, let’s get to know me a bit first, shall we?

So first of all, who am I? Why should you even listen to me?

My name is Betty Smith, I am 39, mother of 2 beautiful kids living in good ol’ big apple. And the reason I have written this (rather long) trim down club review is because I couldn’t find an honest one myself!

I have a long tryst with obesity, right from my high school days.

Before after trim down club

I am one of those people who have literally tried everything out there, from fancy belts, ab wheels, powder to pills to even “magic extracts”.

But, I am also one of those people who have changed the fortunes through hard work and resolve!

Some worked, for a while, others, such as the “raspberry ketones” (cough cough Dr. Oz) were outright scams!

But one pattern used to repeat over and over.

Whatever method/trick/product I tried, it only worked for a while, and all the lost weight came creeping back with more friends!

Now, genetically, I shouldn’t be fat!

My parents were never really obese, nor do I recall any of their ‘ancestors’ particularly obese. So this obesity problem was my own issue, more of a lifestyle issue which you’ll soon see…

But wait, what does all this have to do with the trim down club? Isn’t this a trim down club review?

Of course it is, but it won’t be a true review unless you knew the background.

I can go all out praising the trim down club, but unless you know the ‘why’, there’s no use.

And we, the experienced “already-lost-1000’s-of-dollars” obese tribe, are particularly skeptical of any new ‘program’, given our pathetic experience with 100’s of products.

I, myself look through my huge skeptic’s glasses whenever someone pitches or mentions a “new weight loss product”.

With that said, let’s put the trim down club through the scanner.

Trim down club… get ready for some slicing and dicing!

1 What should you expect from the trim down club?

The trim down club is a 3 year old membership site, focused towards building a positive community of obese people who are tired of searching for ‘solutions’.

The foundation of the program is to teach you to bring about a lifestyle change, rather than looking for yo-yo weight loss solutions.

And that couldn’t be far from the truth.

Here’s a nice, simple, one line truth about losing weight..

The reason you are still obese is not because you haven’t found “THE best weight loss solution”, but because you haven’t found something that you will ACTUALLY STICK TO!

Atkins diet? It works.
Paleo diet? It works.
Juice diet? It works.
Trim down club? It works.
South Beach Diet? It works.

WTH? YES! They all work!

But that’s not even the issue here.

The bigger question here is – Which one is actually “stickable”!?

You are going to absolutely detest the Atkins after a week, and you’ll hate the paleo once you start eating all the meat, and don’t even get me started on the juice diet!

So our number 1 problem: It’s not finding the ‘right’ program, it’s finding something that we will actually stick to!

And that’s where the Trim Down Club comes as a breath of fresh air.

It’s something that I have stuck to for over a year now, since it’s not a super strict diet, and there’s a ton of variety in the recipes, the pre-requisite for sticking to any diet program.

In fact, the trim down club is not even a ‘diet program’, it’s more of a lifestyle program, where you change one thing at a time.

It will teach you to inculcate new habits, even new shopping habits, the way you shop for groceries and other kitchen goodies.

So the foundation of the trim down club is to make sure you actually stick with the program.

And to get you to use it, for if you do, you WILL lose a lot of your ugly fat, they give you a lot of useful tools and online apps.

But the biggest reinforcement for me was the huge community of similar people. More about it later…

So the first thing you should expect from the trim down club is learning a new way of life, a new way of cooking, a new way of eating, and a new way of not having to “go on a diet” anymore.

2 Who Can Do This? Who is The Trim Down Club For?

The majority of folks in the trim down club community are like me, people who have literally tried hundred’s of products with either no results or temporary results.

So first of all, ask yourself this… do you wish to break some heads whenever you see someone advertising and promising “weight loss in 2 weeks” or similar claims?

Great! Then you might be a good candidate for our community! :D

Kidding aside, the trim down club is ideal for people who can actually prepare and eat homemade stuff, or have someone who can prepare for them.

If you or your spouse cooks, then this program can become one of the cheapest and best investment you could make towards better weight and health.

For those who are constantly on the move and eat most of their meals on the run, this might not be perfect for you. But still, even for such people, I will definitely ask you to consider going through their main manual. It is EXTREMELY well written and can throw light on a LOT of common myths and weight loss issues. And hey, the cost at $47 is nothing to think ten times anyway.

So once again, who is the trim down club for?

Perfect for people who can cook or eat at home.
Not so perfect for people who eat on the move. But still advised to go for it as the main manual will enable you to eat correctly when on the move.

3 When Will The Trim Down Club’s Results Come?

Ahhh… the most common question… when will the results come!?

Everybody and his brother want slim, like yesterday! And the crazy fast pace of the world doesn’t help.

If I tell you honestly that you will really start benefitting from the trim down club nowhere before the first 6-8 weeks, you’ll definitely first do this > :(

But it’s not just true, it’s how it should be!

Here’s something to think about…

Your body is a complex machine, we can agree on that, right?

There are like hundreds of activities and changes going on inside you every minute. Now just think how long it took you to get fat (assuming you have not been fat forever)?

It took years to get where you are right now, correcto?

You didn’t “suddenly bulk up” in a month, right?

Then, HOW ON EARTH CAN YOU EXPECT TO “SUDDENLY BULK DOWN” IN 2 WEEKS?!

It’s very much possible, with crazy starvation and biggest loser type extreme training, but does it make sense? Does it sound healthy?

And the biggest question – Is it something you will love to continue forever!?

Nope.

The reason trim down club is a winner for me is because the kind of change it brought in my THINKING!

More than losing weight, it’s all about better health right?

I know that most of us have a secret desire of looking ravishing, of making heads turn and making your friends go bonkers when they see you all slim and fit.

But that’s not gonna last forever.

Ultimately, it’s all about improving your health, bettering your body from the inside. And better health is synonymous with the right weight anyway.

So here’s another advice box for you all…

Instead of trying to ‘lose weight fast’, and methods that will teach you that, aim to learn WHY you will lose weight and how can you actually stick to the path that does help you do it.

No matter how badly we all want to ‘trim down’, the only way you will actually remain trimmed down is by bringing the change gradually, by improving the QUALITY of your body, and by not forcing it to do that.

“Time it seems, is always against us!”
Morpheus – Matrix, The

But do remember that time SEEMS to be against us, but it’s actually not. With the trim down club, you can finally ignore other quick fixes and concentrate fully on it, knowing that IT HAS TO change you from the inside, even if it takes a little more ‘time’.

4 What Does The Trim Down Club Consist Of?

Here’s a rundown of what you expect when you sign up…

1 The first thing you download is the Trim Down Club’s quick start guide.

Though it’s called the quick start guide, it’s a detailed one in itself!

Here’s a pic of the table of contents.

Trim down club quick start guide

The goal of this quick start guide is to get you up to speed.

2 The second and most important component is the main trim down club manual, the heart and soul of the program. It’s a 96 page, detailed guide with 11 chapters.

Here’s a pic of the table of contents.

Trim down club table of contents

My favorite one is chapter 7 without doubt.

3 The third and yummy download is the crazy huge cook book! It’s a whopping 179 page recipe book adhering to the principles of the trim down club.

Trim down club cookbook

Go to the Trim Down Club  




There are 100’s of recipes in there to get you started, (plus thousands more inside the community!)

The next batch of ‘what you get’ are the online apps and tools.

4 There’s a slick meal planner which you can work and view even through your iphone as I just found today! :D

5 A diet journal – I don’t use it much, as I am not a very organized gal, but it might be useful for others.

6 A progress meter – This is a good tool! I have used it from day 1 and it keep you highly motivated to see your progress visually on a graph! :)

7 Feeling luck menu – This is a nice twist to the program when and if you get bored. This spits out (pun not intended) a unique recipe each time you use the tool. Some of them are very very yummy.

8 Menu History – This is a section where you can save your menus and recipes. Handy when you need to remember “that tasty recipe you forgot”.

And the best is saved for the lasy…

The best part for me was the HUGE community of likeminded people.

The online community is a private membership site reserved only for the trim down club members and their coaches.

It’s the next best thing you can have to getting a private coach, and the best part is getting so many experts to help you at a one off fee (try looking and drop your jaw at the per session fees of nutrition experts these days).

Here’s a screenshot of the activity that goes on in there… look out for the number of posts/replies on members’ queries.

Trim down club community

I have asked questions that have gotten replies in like minutes.

So that’s what the Trim Down Club is ‘made up’ of, the biggest win is the active community, where I actually felt I could open up about my specific obesity problems. Another surprising thing was the number of people who went or are still going through the exact similar troubles.

Feels good knowing you’re not the only one facing a unique problem.

5 Do I Recommend The Trim Down Club? Should You Do This? (And FAQ’s)

Without doubt I do! And sure, being a member myself does make me slightly more biased.

But when I first joined, there were no reviews like this one, and I looked at it with a much more skeptical vision.

So let’s look at the trim down club objectively by asking few questions ourselves…

Why is the trim down club program about, in a nutshell?
It is one of the most practical programs out there with a big focus on the community part. Rather than forcing your body to lose weight with impossible, impractical long term methods, it teaches you to instill habits that will lead to better health and invariably, weight loss.

What’s different and/or better in the trim down club?
A big monetary difference (compared to other pricy membership programs) is a onetime fee for lifetime access. Almost all popular weight loss solutions charge a monthly fee for subscriptions or monthly supplies. A good example is the current rage in the market, the plexus slim range of products, or the Slimquick products. All these products charge a recurring charge for their “monthly supplies”.

So the Trim Down Club is a LOT better then all these products because it is a one time cost.

Also, “better” than most other programs is the actual content and method of the program compared to 1000’s of “$7 ebooks”.

And hey, most importantly, it works! It takes time, sure, but then it should, remember.

Why not go for a typical diet (Atkins/South Beach) instead of this?
Like I established at the start of this review, those diets WILL work, sure. But there’s no diet in the world which you will actually stick to, for the long term. So let’s say you go with the Atkins, you will lose weight, but you will gain it all back when you quit it (which you WILL).

And that’s where I can’t stop praising the trim down club. It will keep you hooked, with the every growing database of recipes, the engaging community, and the easy, gradual changes in your kitchen and diet.

Will I have to exercise with the trim down club?
From my experience, getting back in shape follows the classic Pareto principle. 80% of your results come from 1 thing, and 20% from other(s) .

And in our case, 80% of results will come by changing your food, your diet, and 20% from your exercise or workout.

So yes, exercise will MOST definitely help you in the long run (the more muscle mass you have, the faster your metabolism), but to get the kind of results you seek, first and foremost, correct your diet.

6 How To Maximize The Results of Trim Down Club?

To get optimum results with the trim down club, I would suggest combining it with a workout you can actually do (as opposed to most workouts targeted at already fit people!).

Working out (even if 30mins/3 times a week) increases the strength in your muscles, accelerating your metabolism and getting you as close to that ‘slim but fit’ look.

And no, before you ask, no matter how much you do workout, don’t worry about getting TOO muscular!

Unless you gorge on crazy amounts of protein, you are NEVER going to look like that! :D

So without any doubt, combine the trim down club with a good workout and the results (albiet slow) will amaze you!

I can share my workout with you if you want. It’s my own creation, and created specifically for obese people.

Why?

Because when I was myself looking for a workout, I couldn’t find anything decent for “already obese” people.

Seriously, 9 out of 10 common workouts assume you are already fit! :S

So anyway, if you want my workout, just ask for it. :)

Finally we come to the end of this trim down club review.

I hope I was able to cover all of the doubts, queries and questions related to the program. The only reason, like I said before, that I wrote this review was because I couldn’t find anything when I myself was searching for ‘trim down club reviews‘.

If you are already inside, you can look for me (Betty Smith) and we can talk more in there.

And if you still have any questions about the trim down club, feel free to ask me below in the comments section, I reply to all comments. :)

Here’s wishing you better judgment (to know the better products from the scams), focus (to help you say NO to others) and good health!

  1. Thank you Betty for taking such time to go through all that detail. I have literally just joined. I’m from Northern Ireland. I was 40 in Aug 2014 and want to get healthier for energy level reasons as opposed to weight loss although like most women i am open to being trimmer. Im 5’4 and a half(important) and10 and a half stone. I like exercising but with three young children i find it tough. I’ve taken up running in the last few months and am enjoying it. I’m glad i haven’t wasted my money, my biggest challenge is that i’m not a cook and have limited knowledge of good food. i’ve always eaten convenience foods and have a basis pallete so i’m hoping i wont get dis-heartened. i lost my dad last year and just feel life is to be lived to the full and i’m determined to have a healthy body and mind as my dad didn’t live a healthy life although he lived to 87. I want to teach my family to enjoy life and be healthy. here’s to just starting out. thanks again.x

  2. Betty,

    First off I want to say thank you! You are AMAZING! I have been struggling with my weight for over two years now and I’ve tried everything with no lasting results. I was sent to the trimdownclub.com from a link off pinterest, watched the LONGGG (but educational video) and thought hmm, “Its too good to be true” so I googled reviews and yours was the first one that popped up. I loved how detailed you were about every aspect. You look healthy and beautiful.Congratulations on your success story, I do have questions for you though, (if its not to personal) I would love to know how much you’ve lost on the program? how long it took you? what are your favorite exercises? and any advice you would give a 24 year old Kansas City girl that is just looking to become healthy and fit once again. Thank you for reading this and being an inspiration.

    • Bre, I have no problem talking about it, that’s the reason I wrote this post. Anyhoo, I lost over 60lbs in 8 months, yes it took time, but all good things do. My favorite exercises these days are weight lifting (I love shoulder workouts), running (after my 2 kids!!) and swimming.

      If you’re 24, you are at the best age of your life! Just go do it and the only advice I can give you is –> DON’T QUIT! :)

      It’s gr8 that you are doing something about your obesity right now, instead of ‘waking up’ at 50!

  3. Thanks for your review it was most informative. I do not eat wheat of any kind thanks to wheat belly and have stopped as much starch as I can avoid does the trim down meal plan have any wiggle room in it to look after these issues and I also am diabetic.Thanks in advance for any imput you may have

  4. I’m 77 years old and because my wife died very recently I’ve been forced to face cooking for myself. To say that my cooking skills are rudimentary vastly overstates my abilities in the kitchen. Having said all that I am desperate to loose weight – I’ve tried weight watchers many times with varied success. Bearing all this in mind – could I cope with the Trim Down Club?

  5. Betty you said in your review that you have been using the Trim Down Club for over a year. How much weight have you lost? How many sizes have you gone down? Myself and family members are interested in joining but would like to know what long term results could be expected. I am not extremely obese. I want to lose twenty to thirty pounds. That would put me in the middle of the recommended weight range for my height.

    • Tamera, you WILL have to combine it with some form of resistance based workout for it. The best, proven workout is without any doubt, lifting weights. You can also try some of the popular body weight workouts too… but yes, the trim down club will very much help you in this as a 50% partner.

  6. Thank you so Much for this review. I was reading others abd soon became discouraged but then yours popped up and have me some relief. I’m excited to embark on this journey and discover my skinny self once again. I miss her.

  7. Hi Betty thank you so much for you’re review on the trim down club which makes so. McUh sense but the sceptical side of me is still refraining from signing up despite the very cheap cost! I just wanted to check if it’s a diet that’s is suitable for and vegans? I’m not vegan for any religious reason it’s just my family follow a vegan diet throughout the week and eat meat on the weekends, purely for health reasons!

    Look forward to hearing from you

    Kind regards

  8. I’ve watched the TrimDownClub video and it’s very encouraging. I have my doubts, BUT, I think it’s worth a try. Considering everybody and their sister have a program, this is no different but definitely is informative. They offer the full refund and seem sincere. If you don’t like it and they pull the crap about not refunding your money, you dispute the charge, file a complaint against them with the Better Business Bereau or Feds and have fun with their fruitless game. With all that being said, I think they have integrity and an earnest effort to help people succeed. The person thinking of joining have to decide to make that change in life style and keep to it! It starts there with change and sticking with the new you. I’m not a product of them, but I’m going to try it and join! I want to lose 50 pounds.

    • Hi Marvin, I can most definitely relate with your comment, I guess 7 out of 10 companies give all sorts of problems returning our money. But the best part about trim down club is that you can automatically request for your refund from their payment gateway, without even telling them. The steps are given in the receipt email you get from “ClickBank”…

    • Hi Nita, More than age, it depends on your current fitness level. So if you can follow the guidelines, you can most definitely benefits from it. Do one thing, get the program and try it for 4-6 weeks and see how you feel as well as the results. In any case, they guarantee it for 8 weeks, so you have enough time to check it out…

  9. Hi Betty, I just came across this Sat. and was instantly intrigued. I am 65 and have been yo-yoing for 40 years. I am still pretty healthy but know I am in for trouble if I don’t change my ways.Most of my overeating comes from emotional issues and the cause of them will not change. Does this plan address that at all? I need to lose 70-80 lbs. Thank you for your reply, Jane

    • Jane,
      I can give you my personal cravings control guide that specifically addresses emotion eating and curing it with a very highly effective scientific technique. Just leave a comment here if you want to get it from me… :)

    • I think they have added an option to request for a hard copy. In any case, you can download everything one off if you connection’s slow…

  10. Hi, I’m dairy intolerant I was wondering if it’s possible to tick a box and if they take into account? Don’t want to start and then see that they propose butter as a replacement. Thank you.

    • Hi Manon,
      I haven’t checked specifically for this option, but you can sign up and check it yourself. Worse case, you can just mention about it and ask for a refund. Better still, continue for 3-4 weeks as you have a full 8 weeks guarantee…

  11. Has Dr. Oz been made aware of this club? Having an endorsement from a well-known nutritional advisor (or credentialed celebrity) would be extremely beneficial. It would give me the confidence to try this plan. While the $47
    doesn’t seem like a lot of money to most people; it is to me at this time in my life. Every cent counts.

    • No offense Dena, but Dr. Oz IS a well known nutritional adviser, but HE IS NOT a good one! The two most popular things he recommended on his show, Raspberry Ketones and the whole Garcinia hoopla, actual research is severely lacking for both of them. So I am not very sure of his “recommendations” here on in…

      As for the trim down club, other than the reason that it did work for me and many people I recommended, the other reason I recommend it is because they give a fair guarantee.

      Finally, to put things in perspective, the average American family spends more than $600-650 on groceries and supplies every month. I am sure $50 doesn’t sound that “pricey” keeping that in mind… :)

  12. Thank you Betty. When I join, I will definitely look for your name. I’ve tried seversl things too. The only thing I’ve struggled with is knowing what foods to pair together cor meals. I already watched the long video, and I am skeptical. It is your review that has pushed me to try trim down club.

  13. I would like to join even tho I do not need to lose weight. I am interested in getting rid of the fat on my belly and around my waist. Would this work for me?
