My Personal Product Reviews
These are weight loss programs and products I have tried and experienced success with. Let’s face it all diet and exercise programs claim that they work. Even if the program worked for others there may be something about the program that is not sustainable for your lifestyle. Once you revert back to your old ways, the weight is likely to return. A weight loss program is only truly successful if you can keep it up for the rest of your life.
There are millions of products available within the weight loss industry and sadly it’s only through trying something that you figure out what works and what doesn’t. Most of the time it’s not free to try these programs so you must determine if it’s worth the risk. The purpose of this section is to gain some insight from who is others who are currently using the program or have already tried it.
I don’t believe that there are any perfect weight loss programs. You will have to make a few sacrifices for success but the key is to figure out what works best for you and what will allow you to keep going with it long-term.
The Venus Factor Review
This is the only weight loss program I have found so far that specifically targets women. The author is John Barban who is a modern fitness professional and an expert in nutrition, biology, and physiology. After developing a unique men-aimed program called the Adonis Index, he has focused on studying female metabolism! This program is a digital product sold through ClickBank. By request of the members, a hard copy of the the product is available for shipping through the website. It’s 12-week program that focus on teaching your body to burn more fat and learning about a hormone called leptin.
So, What Exactly is Leptin?
I had never heard of leptin until I started this program. In the weight loss industry, the main focus is usually on metabolism. Leptin is a hormone released from the fat cells located in adipose tissues. It sends signals to the hypothalamus in the brain. This hormone helps regulate and alter long-term food intake and energy expenditure, not just from one meal to the next. The primary design of leptin is to help the body maintain its weight.

Scientific Yet Unconventional Approach to Weight loss
If you are not open to new ideas in health and wellness or would rather take a more traditional approach to fat loss this program may not be for you. Some of the unconventional approaches within this program include intermittent fasting, freedom to choose any type of food, reverse taper protocol, supplements, and leptin sensitivity. Also, tracking calories is a big part of this program. If you don’t think you can consistently keep track of your calorie intake you may have a hard time with this program.
Weight Lifting is for Women Too
If you are not into weight lifting this program is not for you. Weight lifting as the primary exercise with this program. I enjoy weight lifting so this works great for me. There is really no focus on aerobic activity, although you do experience an aerobic effect from some of the exercises. This will help you achieve the body shape you want by focusing on a specific daily calorie intake, taking body measurements, and contouring your muscles through weight lifting.
The Add On Products
There is an incredible amount of information included with the initial program and for a beginner it’s my honest opinion that there is no need to participate in any of these additional products right away. As you grow stronger and have mastered everything within the startup program, you may be looking for more and of course more is available. Some of the add on products are: Immersion (flagship product for increasing your results), Venus Cookbook, Eat Stop Eat (e-book about fasting), BioTrust (supplements), and Adonis Index Systems (men’s program – have your significant other join you doing a program tailored to men).
If you have tried this program I would love to hear from you. Please post your questions or comments.
