The Food Lovers Fat Loss program is a typical “eat the foods you like” diet which has the dieter eat small portions of foods they enjoy and combine that diet with an exercise program.

The Food Lovers Fat Loss was created by Robert Ferguson. Feguson owns the Diet Free Life Center in Ventura, California.

List of Ingredients

Not applicable. The Food Lovers Fat Loss is a portion-size and workout program, not an herbal supplement.

Product Features

The product website does not give any details, so it is difficult to research its features. Users say it has a slow track and a fast track option. It also offers diabetic-friendly and heart-healthy options. There is a purge starting on day six, which obviously would not actually allow you to choose much of what you eat.

The idea behind this diet is that you can eat some of the foods you like by choosing the ones you like that burn fat and help you lose weight. It does not actually let you eat whatever you want, but suggests healthier alternatives. It also limits portion sizes.

  • There is a money-back guarantee after a 21-day trial, but this does not include shipping and handling.
  • While this is not an original approach, this diet highlights the importance of exercise and cutting calories.


  • Has no research cited anywhere on the website.
  • Has very few before/after photos.
  • Has no free gift with purchase.
  • The portions of the “foods you love” are so small that they may not really be enjoyable.
  • This is not an original idea. It focuses on cutting calories and exercising, which most people already know is a key to weight loss.
  • The website offers very little information on what this diet is actually about; all the information is related only to ordering or returning the product.
  • Advertising is misleading. It says you can eat your favorite foods all day longs, but it really gives you approved alternatives to your favorite foods and limits your portion sizes. So you don’t actually get to eat what you like, as the advertising claims, but you eat recommended substitutes instead.


Users give The Food Lovers Fat Loss very mixed reviews. It appears to be an unoriginal plan with no new ideas. It is useful only as far as the user is disciplined enough to follow it, and it does not live up to its advertising. Its main advantage seems to be giving you tips and recipes for eating the best mix of foods, something you could figure out for a lot less money.

Obviously, The Food Lovers Fat Loss is not an herbal weight loss program. If you are looking for an herbal supplement to help your regular diet and exercise, this will not change anything and is not recommended.

    I’m glad I read first. I went to their Terms & Conditions, in fine print it says 14 day trial then $84.94 monthly. CRAZY! I’m going for The Food Lovers Fat Loss Diet. My mom went to the hospital for a correct way to eat class. She’s lost 100 lbs. I ask her to look at the one listed above and she says they are about the same, IF anyone is interested. Thank you for all your input, it saved me!

    This has turned out to be very expensive for me. Please , ….if you are paying with a credit card…beware. Somewhere in this pile of recipes and shopping lists etc, they say is a FREE 14 day online support. If you do not cancel , they will charge your credit card
    $64.87 every thirteen weeks. I paid $119. +shipping and have been billed three payments of $64.87 before I noticed this on my credit card. This is a scam but they are getting away with this. I never used any on line support either by phone or Internet , but they tell me it is non refundable.

    I ordered the fat lovers diet in Sept. I paid with Amex . I just noticed that they are taking out $64.87 out of my account. I called and they said that is for on line support.
    I said that I have never used online support on the web or by phone. I was told by the girl and the supervisor, that when I ordered it , I received 14 days free online support and did not cancel so I am being charged $64.87 every 13 weeks. There is no refund . I searched the whole box and can find nothing about this.
    Amex has put a block on my account and refunded 2 payments. If you order this by credit card, beware……
    As far as the diet goes, you follow their recipes but only eat a small portion.

    I was so excited to try this program but I felt it was hard to get all the snacks in. I do not have a regular 9 to 5 desk job and I just could not even get past day 1. Now I am stuck with this product. What a disappointment!!!!



    Would you be interested in selling it?


    Nancy Marracco

    Yes, I am more than willing to sell mine. It is barely used or read. I have not even opened the CDs .

    I think you’re being too hard on the program. I ran across several of the Food Lovers books at a thrift store for $1 to $2 and I thought they were excellent. The only legitimate gripes anyone can have with this product is the price, and the company’s treatment of their customer’s personal information.

    The system itself is very sound. Sure, almost all of the information is available elsewhere, but here it is compiled in a straightforward, easy to understand manner that can easily be adapted into everyday use. I’ve had plenty of doctors tell me to eat less and exercise more, but when asked for specific details, most of them are pretty bad at explaining how to do it.

    This system, in contrast, gives explicit details and well-illustrated examples of determining portion size, arranging a proper plate, cooking and volumizing techniques, even how to measure your inches and take before & after photos.

    The recipes in the recipe books look quite delicious and innovative. They’re gourmet quality, with a lot of attention given to flavor.

    About the only diet claim I disagree with is the idea that people must eat every 2 or 3 hours to achieve fat loss. Personally, I think this is more of a calorie management technique than a hard and fast rule. However, it is conventional wisdom these days and might even be scientifically valid. I’m generally mistrustful of the “always always always always always eat breakfast” mantra, but it’s not unique to this program, and at least this program shows you how to construct a proper breakfast.

    I disagree with the reviewer’s assessment that this program will not allow you to eat certain foods. This program most certainly will allow you to eat any food, but it will limit portion size of calorically dense foods. Women can eat anything 100-200 calories and men can eat anything 100-300 calories for a snack, and can have several snacks per day. Granted if your favorite food is pork fat smothered in melted butter, the portion size will be small, but you can have it.

    Overall, I wish I had been taught the principles in this program in high school health class instead of dissecting a fetal pig, putting a condom on a banana or whatever other useless activities I endured, and I wish I had learned a lot of this stuff 25 years ago, but there is useful information that can be applied every day to your everyday life. Even if some of it is basic, it’s nice to have all the info in one easy-to-access reference work.

    One nit that I would pick with the program is that it is almost exclusively focused on eating. There is very little useful information about exercise. Another nit is that the program doesn’t give much useful information about how to eat slowly and mindfully so that the snacks and meals can be more thoroughly enjoyed.

    At worst, the program is a high dollar combination of The South Beach Diet and Eat This Not That, but easier to understand and more generally applicable to everyday situations.
