What You Should Know
The Genie Diet is a cleanse diet that claims to help you lose a high number of pounds in only a few days. The website gives little information about how it was developed or whom it was developed by. Purchase of the product is necessary to find out what it is really about.
List of Ingredients
Not applicable; the ingredients of this diet are not revealed until after purchase.
The Genie Diet is a 10-day cycle that includes periodic cleanse days and low-calorie meal ideas for meal days. The diet secret is available when you purchase the diet online and receive it electronically. According to one reviewer, the cycle starts with a preparation day followed by two days of cleansing; then there are six days for low-calorie intake followed by a final day of cleansing. This ten-day cycle can be repeated immediately or at any time later, and there is a weight-maintenance plan to follow the cycle.
The idea behind the cleanse diet is that the body stores toxins in fat tissue, and a regular diet only cuts back the fat, releasing the toxins into other parts of the body rather than getting rid of them. A cleanse diet is supposed to help the body get rid of those toxins so that they do not promote weight re-gain after the diet.
- Inexpensive (only $27.95) because it is delivered electronically, but the user will have no hard copy.
- Money-back guarantee.
- No re-purchase or membership costs.
- No preservatives, but there is not list of what is included in ingredients.
- Has unrealistic weight loss claims. According to the website, the user can lose up to 21 pounds in 10 days, a potentially unhealthy rate of weight loss.
- Has a lack of before/after photos.
- Has a lack of scientific research or support, and no scientific explanation of what to use for cleansing (that is the secret part of the diet) or why exactly it works.
- The specifics of the diet plan are kept secret until after you purchase it.
- Has no free gift with purchase.
- Does not highlight the importance of regular exercise or healthy diet.
- Meal days only allow about 1000 calories, which could send your body into starvation mode and slow down your metabolism.
For a cleanse diet, this diet gets good reviews, but it seems to be an unrealistic rate of weight loss, especially if anyone expects to keep the rate up through more than one cycle. The website is weak, with no solid scientific backing cited, no before-and-after pictures, and very little detail before purchase to make a consumer comfortable with taking the risk of the purchase.
This diet does not stand out as it does not reveal what really is supposed to make it work. This is a diet plan, not an herbal weight loss supplement.
