The Flip the Switch Diet is a book written by fitness guru Jim Karas and Karas uses his own battle with weight loss as a basis for the information. Flip the Switch goes beyond prescribing specific diet and exercise plans to get to the root of why so many people have trouble shedding the excess weight. His book is loaded with psychological advice that helps readers believe in themselves as a first step in overcoming the hurdles in weight loss. The book also outlines a realistic eating plan and emphasizes the importance of exercise as part of a daily exercise regimen. We will take a closer look at the information provided in the Flip the Switch diet to see if it would give consumers a good value for their weight loss buck.

List of Ingredients

The first part of the book will help readers understand why they have been unable to lose weight in the past so they are better equipped to begin this program with a higher chance of success. The book also includes a seven-day jump start plan and eating guidelines that includes menus and shopping lists. Finally exercise is addressed in some detail in the book, along with the myths that many dieters subscribe to about the “right” kinds of exercise and three easy exercise programs that dieters can try.

Product Features

The Flip the Switch book is available through numerous online retailers and costs about $11 at the time of this review. There is not a money back guarantee available. While the information provided in this book may be helpful, simply reading a book and following the program is usually not sufficient for most people to successfully lose weight. We prefer programs that provide ongoing support or a weight loss supplement that can offer dieters the extra push they need to make their goals.

  • The Flip the Switch diet emphasizes a healthy diet and exercise.
  • The book is written by a fitness expert who has personally been through the weight loss experience.


  • The Flip the Switch program does not include ongoing support.
  • There is no weight loss supplement recommended with this program.
  • The program appears more motivational than practical in its structure.


Dieters who are beginning a program to lose weight might benefit from reading Flip the Switch in preparation for the process that lies ahead. However, we believe an actual diet program is more successful when it combines diet, exercise, and an effective weight loss supplement to maximize the benefits of the program. Flip the Switch does not appear to endorse any such supplement.
