Robert Ferguson is the face behind the Diet Free Life. This former marine’s approach aims to show people how they can eat all of their favorite foods all day long without depriving themselves while still being able to lose weight. This program takes 8 weeks, and costs around $50. There are other books, CDs, and resources for around $10 to $20 each.

List of Ingredients

There are no ingredients.

Product Features

The Diet Free Life website features recipes, meal plans and more information to help those who are trying to lose weight. Also available from the website are the 8 week challenge program that claims to help dieters lose weight through online forums, webcasts, secret recipes, and more. The program seems to be based on the Glycemic Index, which has been around since 1981, though there is nothing to confirm or deny this suspicion.

The Glycemic Index is basically choosing foods based on how quickly they are broken down in the body. Foods with a high Glycemic Index are less healthy for the body, and foods with a lower glycemic index are better for the body.

In addition to the challenge and the books that Robert Ferguson has, there are supplements to detoxify and cleanse the body, though none of the supplements are directly linked to weight loss.

Advantages

  • May help people gain control over their eating habits.
  • 100% money back guarantee.

Disadvantages

  • Some claims have been exaggerated.
  • Does not appear to offer any supplements that have been safely designed to both suppress the appetite and burn fat.
  • Provides little information to consumers regarding the logic and science behind the plan.

Conclusion

The foundation of Robert Ferguson’s program is certainly solid, and much better than some of the programs and products we see on the market today. However, there are problems with the program, because there is little information on how it is supposed to work to help those who are interested in it lose weight. Those who are interested in losing weight need to eat a balanced diet with plenty of exercise, and need to be sure they are drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated. If you are interested in adding a supplement to your program for an extra push, be sure to look for one with proven ingredients as both an appetite suppressant and a fat burner.

    What is the difference between the Food Lovers Fat Loss program and the Diet Free Life materials? I have already purchased the first but lost the binder with everything in it. So, I am going to need to replace it with something.

    I have been on the food lovers plan for 6 days now. I have lost 3 pounds and feel more energetic. I have recently found coconut milk and love it. I need to know if this is considered a fast carb or a fat. Does anyone know the answer to this.

    Why couldn’t Ferguson put enough information in his Diet-Free for life book so we would be able to follow his plan without buying a $119 meal plans. He did not even put portion sizes, or when to eat which ratio!!! Half the book is either exercising positions or recipes which do not tell you where they fall as far as the food plan. He is more interested in making money that he is helping people. I am disappointed in his book Diet Free for Life.

    I have done the 6 week body makeover, the Atkins diet and others. I lost weight on both and then aquired food allergies to carrots and poultry because i had to eat the same foods over and over. So I am thinking of trying this program simply for the wide range of foods you can eat! I am a mom of 5 and i’d like to c if it really works.

    I ordered this foodlovers program on Dec, 01, 2010, and here it is Dec 21, and still no package has arrived, but they have certainly charged my credit card, they did this on 12/01, try to get in touch with customer service for 2 hours after the time they are supposed to be open and all I get id a recording they are closed….This is a scam to rip people off….Beware of this foodlovers ripoff….

    THE PRICE OF THE DIET ISN’T AN ISSUE, I WANT TO KNOW THE PROGRAM ACTUALLY WORKS. MY DAUGHTER AND I BOTH WOULD LIKE TO LOSE WEIGHT BUT WE ARE TIRED OF STARVING TO ACCOMPLISH THIS. WE DON’T LIKE A LOT OF THE VEGETABLE SOME DIETS REQUIRE YOU TO EAT. WE ALREADY EXERCISE EVERY DAY. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT KIND OF FOODS CAN BE EAT AND HOW MUCH. A HALF CUP OF A FEW THINGS IS JUST NOT CUTTING IT WITH US. HELP!

    Charlie

    I have been on the Food Lover’s plan for 10 weeks and have lost 42 pounds. Its easy, effective and I don’t feel deprived. I’ve been on WW, Richard Simmons, and others. The issue is regaining weight “When the diet is over”. This is not a diet. This is a new and smart lifestyle change that allows you to eat what you like at the right time and in the right combinations to keep your body working at its best. I have never felt better. PS I have back and jont issues from being overweight for too long so exercise is difficult and it still works. I can only imagine my results if I could exercise like others do! Get it!

    Hi. I was just reading the posts to see if this program is what I want to try. I did do Weight Watchers and I was a stellar Champion…but I have put back on all the weight. I do admit going to those meetings and weekly tips was enough to keep me going for a while, so I understand where u are coming from. Prior to WW I did the High Protein no carb diet and lost a lot of weight too, but them put it all back on, hence why I turned to weight watchers. Now with no time in my life I can’t do the meetings and such…but I thought If I could do it on my own that would be great. One thing that may help you, I met a young man at weight watchers. He was extremely overweight. He had a pair of old jeans that were humongous that he always carried with him in the car to remind him when he was out and about not to go back to where he was. He also carried a picture of himself to mind himself that he wasn’t going to do this to himself again. Maybe this will help you too. Yes I am a little heavy right now, and not happy about it, but I know that when I make the commitment I will see it through. If you already made it do everything you can to keep yourself there. Chew gum, eat popcorn maybe put it next to the ice cream. Tape a picture of the old you and the new you near or on the ice cream/freezer. Don’t give up on yourself. Hang in there

    If this is basically eating the foods you like in moderation….try Weight Watchers….I dropped 30 lbs. in 10 weeks by WW….and love it….easy and you can still eat the foods you want and not as expense as this program…

    Is there a way to start the program for less than the 229.93? I am very interested but, can’t swing that right now.

    [Reply]

    Ladyg

    The program doesn’t cost 229.93. It cost the same amount that is quoted on the informercial. The program really works. I am very sceptical about infomercial but I thought I would order it and today I am at my goal weight and I mostly eat from strategy 2. If you are a food lover like most of us are you would love this plan. I am a born again Christian and will never lie about anything. The Plan Works!!

    [Reply]

    Helen Hines

    I’m a big skeptic on infomercial products too. You can honestly say that this product has worked for you? I hate cooking and grocery shopping I am absolutely the worse at it! I spend way too much money on all the wrong foods even the ones that I think are healthy are not. Can you please tell me how long does it take to prepair your meals and is it easy to do? Did you reach your goal weight and how long have you kept it off? How long did it take you to lose the weight and has it been easy to keep it off? I am so tired of my yo-yo weight fluctuating and also spending a lot of money on a monthly bases on diet meds! Your comments on this product would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to your reply. Thank you and have a blessed day!

    I want to share as one who has participated in this program now for 3 months one key reason you do not need supplements to suppress appetite and burn fat as the eating lifestyle along with exercise is truly the key here. You are trained the proper way to eat. I truly is simple, effective and life changing. And yes there are supplements available through the Food Lovers Fat Loss plan that will burn fat. I am a success story in the making 25 lbs down, I am healthier and more energized than I have every been. I am a Food Lover/Fat Loss for life!!

    is there a money back gaurentee and do i eat a variety of food that i have at home?

    [Reply]

    Angela

    Yes the is a full money back guarantee and you can eat a vast variety of foods that you have at home, no preplanned meals to buy, no points to count. You eat breads, burgers, meats of all kinds, veggies, popcorn and on and on and on. This is to me a wonderful way to not only lose weight and inches but to eat the way we were intended to eat.
