What You Should Know
Gilad’s Quick Fit System is a program advertised on television as a complete weight loss system. The system claims to be worth over $200, but is on sale for $69.95 plus $10 shipping and handling. The system can be purchased from his website, which is professional though reads very much like a sales page. If you choose to get your videos on VHS instead of DVD, you will save an additional $10. Gilad is a former Olympic champion, but it is important to note that his program has not been backed by clinical research.
Gilad’s Quick Fit System comes with either seven VHS workout tapes, or 4 workout videos. Along with the workouts, you’ll also get the “Eat Right Plan” which is said not to be a diet, but a method of showing you about the foods that are good for you versus the ones that are bad for you. You’ll be able to make better educated food choices to help turn your body into a fat burning machine the natural way, according to Gilad. On top of this, you will also get a journal to track your progress, and a copy of Gilad’s ebook: “Discovering the Joy in Fitness.” An added bonus is a membership to a private, members only website full of tips and motivation.

The program seems to make sense, but there are plenty of weight loss approaches that seem to make sense and still do not work. With a guarantee like that, it seems that people would use it for a year, get the results they wanted, and send it back. Knowing this, Gilad probably wouldn’t make any money. Without proof of people actually getting their money back, it’s probably just something they say to make themselves look and sound good. With the fact that photos can be manipulated, it is hard to say whether the photos are real and if they are, who knows how the weight was really lost? These things place skepticism into the program, and combined with the fact there is no clinical research, it just does not seem like something worth vesting in. If you are looking for a good weight loss program, you can do it yourself for just the cost of food and exercise equipment while eating a balanced diet and including exercise.
