Prism Weight Loss is a program that is suitable for both men and women who wish to lose excess body weight. This weight reduction program lasts over 24 weeks and is separated into four or more phases that last six weeks each. Individuals can enroll for a single 6-week phase. The official Prism Weight Loss Program website states that it is “Christian oriented.” This program claims to offer a new way of living for those who are overweight/unhealthy. Prism Weight Loss is not just a diet, but rather a lifestyle change. Participants learn about healthy eating habits and staying fit.

The four phases involved with the Prism Weight Loss Program are Phase I (a first phase 42-lesson workbook, introductory video, a teaching video with 6 lessons and a transformation audio tape), Phase II (a second phase 42-lesson workbook and a teaching video with 6 lessons), Phase III (a third phase daily workbook with 42 lessons) and Phase IV (a fourth phase 42-daily lesson workbook). While the first phase costs $80, the other three each cost $60. With the Prism Weight Loss Program, participants have access to a discussion board, feedback and guidance, as well as online resources offered on the official website. There are customer testimonials presented on the official website for the Prism Weight Loss Program. It is not stated whether or not this weight loss program is offered with a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee. Since no dietary supplements are involved, there are no free trial samples available through the official website.

Product Features

Prism Weight Loss is a program that is marketed to all men, women and children who desire assistance with weight reduction or weight management. Although this is a Christian-based program, it is open to everyone. The Prism Weight Loss Program focuses on proper diet habits and eating/living healthy. There aren’t any pills or supplements involved with this program. It lasts for a total of 24+ weeks, but can be purchased on a per-phase basis. These four general phases cost between $60-$80. There doesn’t appear to be any clinical data offered on the official Prism Weight Loss website.

Advantages

  • The Prism Weight Loss Program can be easily and conveniently purchased online.
  • The Prism Weight Loss Program is suitable for men, women and children.
  • There are customer testimonials posted on the official website.

Disadvantages

  • The Prism Weight Loss Program may be too involved for some individuals who might desire a more convenient solution to weight loss, such as a pill or capsule.
  • There doesn’t appear to be any clinical evidence presented on the official website to support the overall effectiveness of the Prism Weight Loss program.
  • There are no appetite suppressants or fat burners incorporated into the Prism Weight Loss Program.
  • The Prism Weight Loss Program doesn’t appear to come with a 100% money-back guarantee.
  • A single phase of Prism Weight Loss costs $60-80, which may be too pricey for some dieters.
  • It may not make sense for non-Christians to enroll in this program.

Conclusion

Overall, the Prism Weight Loss Program is basically a lifestyle guide, which involves changing the eating habits of participants. Unfortunately this program will not appeal to some dieters who are looking for an actual weight loss supplement. Many people who wish to lose weight have already tried dieting with little success. In the end, it would be nice to see some kind of clinical data posted on the official website, along with a 100% satisfaction guarantee for the Prism Weight Loss Program.

    I have used the Prism Weight Loss system before and did it through correspondence wit a lady names Susie. It worked well and not having to get on the scales and go to meetings, was great. I am trying to find out how to do that again, but can’t seem to. Please let me know what my options are. I like having to be accountable to a leader, like Susie. I am Christian and loved the workbooks! I hope you’ll be able to help me out with this. Thank you.

    My daughter went to the Prism group at a local church and did awesome. She started in February 2012 and ended in July 2012 and lost 61 pounds and is still loosing weight but doesn’t really need to anymore. She just really believes in the program and she inspired me to get on her train and I’ve lost 15 pounds in the first 6 weeks.

    Prism only accepts age 16 and older WITH doctor’s permission slip, otherwise, you have to be an adult.

    I lost 30 lbs on Prism diet in 2009. I was single and had a lot of time to devote to menus and recipes. I have gained back 12 lbs since getting married and working more. I do not have time to make up menus. Other diets have complete menu suggestions and that is an attraction. I would prefer to do Prism but outside of the one week of suggestions you give in Phase 1, there are no menu ideas that I can find……PLEASE help!!! If I was running Prism, I would make a monthly menu list available to busy women. Help me chose your diet!! Give menu plans!!!! Any suggestions?

    I did Prism 5 years ago and the principles have stayed with me. It’s helped with behavior modification and understanding why I eat when not hungry; and just appreciate healthy food more.. I have the large daily workbook to quickly refer back to and get encouraged from when I need a refresher. There is SO MUCH good info in it; I can’t begin to express how much I learned. After the time I put in to see how many calories basic foods have, I can no recall quickly how much I’m eating and to back off, eat slower, decide if a particular food is worth the exercise it’ll take to burn it off later.. SO MANY good things I learned. Very Very thankful for this program.

    I did the Prism Diet 12 years ago, but have gained the wt. back. Cannot seem to get going on it again, do you have any suggestions?

    [Reply]

    Debby

    Yes – begin again. You did it once, you can do it again!
    Planning meals ahead and shopping for only those foods,works for me.
    Find the items you and your family like to eat, then plan two weeks of compliant meals around those healthy foods, keeping to your calorie count and only purchase food you can eat. Know a week at a time what you will be eating.
    Blessings. I’m in for a life time of healthy eating for me and my family. At 61 & 63 we do not take any medication for any dis-ease process.

    I bought the book, & did the program with my Church about 5 years ago. I now need to loose some weight again. I still have the book, but have misplaced the phase 1 food chart ( to let me know what I can & can’t eat) is there any way to get a copy of the chart without having to pay $120.00 again?
    thanks! Jen Morgan jen@thewhirlwind.org

    No real sugar unless past the 3rd ingredient, no potatoes, and no flour

    I just recently bought an electronic copy from Amazon for $10.99. Yes, no sugar, but it has to be past the 5th ingredient.

    I have been on the Prisim Diet for nearly 3 years, I’ve lost 90 pounds & kept it off. I Have only 10 more pounds to go to reach my goal. Prisim is a life changing diet. It works with GOD’s blessing!

    My family needs to lose 400lbs. We want to do the prism program, but can’t afford it. Any ideas?

    [Reply]

    If you join a Prism group through a church, the fees are lower than doing it on your own. Though they don’t recommend this, you could buy one workbook to share, and each use your own spiral notebook for answering the questions. Talk to the group leader or pastor, and see if they will work something out. Prism is not like Weight Watchers or Nutri-system, where they’re in it for the money. Don’t let the money keep you from getting healthy!

    You say don’t let the money stop you however if someone does not have the money to spend, how can that make sense? I don’t mean to be negative, just being real. If they don’t have the money it will be hard for them to think about doing this program. I too have very limited funds but managed to lose 40 pounds by cutting out junk food and walking. Those of us with limited funds tend to buy junk food but in reality real healthy food is cheaper in the long run because it takes less of it. Good luck to Lori R. and her family.

    Lr

    I looked at my friends used workbook, and was able to answer the questions and do the work, I lost 19 lbs in the first 6 weeks and that was close to my goal weight! Just look at someones used book if you can’t afford it.I guarentee you will want to order the next phase for yourself, then share it among your family.

    About 15 years ago I participated in a PRISM weight loss program. Several people dropped out because it was tough. Those who remained lost the amount of weight they wanted to lose and were very happy with the program…whether they lost 10 lbs. as I did, or 75+ lbs. I now need to lose again and will begin today. This is a very strict program of tough love, and, in my opinion, that’s why it works faster than some other plans; you can’t cheat (yourself).

    Linnea, I too did the Prism program and lost but since then I have had problems with my knee and have to have surgery for a knee replacement. So not being able to walk, like we were, I have gained almost all my wieght back….excuse was sympthy food..:-( would live to comunicate with others to get back on track and compare notes with each other, like a support group.

    I AM IN PHASE 3 OF THE PRISM WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM. I AM PROUD TO SAY I AM CHANGING FROM THE INSIDE OUT. THIS PROGRAM TRULY WORKS.YES I HAVE HAD TO WORK AT THIS , IT HAS BEEN WELL WORTH IT. I HAVE LOST 37 LBS AND 45 INCHES OF FAT IN 3 MONTHS AND HAVE A DIFFERENT OUT LOOK ABOUT MYSELF AND OTHERS. I AM SO THANKFUL TO HAVE FOUND THE PRISM PROGRAM.

    ANY one of ANY faith can benifit from this program. I was a group leader for years. It is about learning about yourself and finding the right amount of calories in vs out. We also had a Dr. from our area look at the program and he gave it a big thumbs up. My fathers Dr. has been telling her clients about the program. My dad has lost 50 lbs and has almost been taken off all med. its not an overnight or quick fix. But then again this is a life changing event not a weekend event

    After trying many programs, the holistic approach of Prism has changed my life. It truly is lifestyle change. I’ve lost 70 pounds and am pressing on to lose the remaining 89 before my goal.
