The Trim Down Club is a paid website that claims it can help dieters lose more weight in 60 days than they can on their own. The buddy system is proven to help people make better choices and stick with weight loss plans longer, but there are tons of trusted websites out there – what makes Trim Down Club different? The only thing we noticed upfront was the $47 fee dieters were expected to pay before accessing the website.

List of Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • Weight Loss Tools
  • Online Website/Forum Access

Product Features

For the $47 fee, what exactly does Trim Down Club offer the dieter? The listed benefits/tools include a progress meter, personal menu planner, diet journal, menu history and a feeling lucky menu for when you’re bored of the same foods. None of these tools are unique to Trim Down Club. Websites like Sparkpeople and FitDay offer the same tools and many more for FREE. FitDay has more than 6 million users and Sparkpeople more than 15 million users. These sights are amazingly popular and they charge $0 for access to all the sites tools, including mobile apps.

After a little deeper digging, we found the company behind the website and dieters will not be too thrilled with what we found. The B2C Media Solutions company out of Israel is the media company making money on diet tools found free on other sites. From the looks of the site and the information we found about the company, Trim Down Club is nothing more than a brilliantly developed website of online tools and simple diet articles a media company is selling for $47 a member. To make matter worse, when we visited the Contact Us page there was a place for the ClickBank order number. ClickBank is an affiliate sales site partnering Internet marketers with digital products.

Advantages

  • None.

Disadvantages

  • Charges dieters $47 for tools found free on other websites.
  • The site was created by a media company.
  • There is no information about how the site supports your weight loss.

Conclusion

Trim Down Club is not a site you want to pay to join. Visit sites like Sparkpeople or FitDay and join for free. You’ll receive a dedicated set of tools and millions of supporters. Trim Down Club appears to be nothing more than a money-making scam from a media company and a bad scam at that. If you read the front page of any diet website and you have NO idea how the product or service will support your weight loss, leave the site.

    It looks like a scam. I paid by PayPal. The transaction was not confirmed by TDC but the money was taken. No email confirmation and no access to their site. I have complained to Paypal and my bank.
    I would like my money back but does not look good.

    Hello,
    I only saw this review website after I already joined the Trim Down Club. I’m happy I did join the club and don’t really agree with the authors opinion, that’s why I want to let you know what I think.
    For me its an advantage to have a well organized site without advertisment and tools that are well maintained. So I know what I pay for.
    And also, more important even, the diet works and I understand the philosophy behind it. Its not crazy making you eat very one sided or not eat at all, but it just shows you which foods are better for you without to have to starve yourself. It takes an effort but its well worth it in my opinion.

    So far, really good. I ordered the Advanced Membership upgrade. There’s so much information provided in the Trim Down Club guides, and none of it is fluff! 3 months finished and I haven’t stalled. I keep loosing weight, and I’m totally in love with the Trim Down Club philosophy! Plus my menus are created just for me. To many great things going for me and the program :)

    I’m glad I didn’t believe everything I read on this website and tried the Trim Down Club. I’m not sure how good I’ll be at it in the long run, but so far it’s been totally AWESOME!!! I don’t know how anybody can say anything bad about a website that gathers all the information you need and puts it all together for you. My time to find everything they gave me for $47 is worth a lot more than the time it would take to find it myself. As for the free sights, you get bombarded by advertising! I’m not going to name names but that one sight with the hundreds of obnoxious ads doesn’t Spark my interest or any other People I know. I’ve never seen even one ad on the Trim Down Club website. In the eight weeks I’ve already been on it, I’ve lost nearly four pounds, and I’m really happy.

    I’ve been on the Trim Down Club for a month and find it works great with my fitness pal. I enjoy the Menus, and easy to make recipes. Sorry to hear, you had a bad experience Russell, and hope you got your money back. For everyone posting on this review site, you’re questions or concerns will never be answered… Remember, this is not Trim Down, but it is a random review site.

    I think the Trim Down program as advantages. It’s cheap, and you get the one on one time in the Community forum that other sites can’t offer because of the amount of users they have to keep up with. They also keep their webpages clean, and easy to maneuver around. I’m satisfied with it. What’s there to loose…

    I have been unable to use my Trimdown club because I find no way to log in to my account. There are too many choices that don’t work. I believe this is a scam. Please refund my $47.00 as I have been unable to use this system.

    How do I get my money back?
    I just signed up yesterday, 3/6 but don’t feel I
    I will use it. They say I have 8 weeks to cancel.
    Recommended I copy the receipt, but when I tried, the receipt was covered by an incontinence add. Is there a contact site or telephone number to call?

    Carl Baxter

    If you signed up through click bank or pay pal; that is where you go to get a refund.

    I just signed up to Trim Down Club before the weekend, pretty much solely for the recipe calculator. I am looking for inspiration to have a varied and balanced diet but using the principles that the TDC stands for. I really got on board with it, so I paid the fee. The first disappointment was when the fee went from the advertised £29 up to £37 when it came to checkout. I then spent a good 20 minutes ticking all my food choices from the options on the menu planner, excited to see the delicious recipes it would recommend for me once I’d completed my choices!

    What I got was essentially just the foods I’d put a tick next to, arranged in any old order by a computer just to balance them with each other. I don’t know the last time you had a snack which consisted of:

    1 cup of Tea, Black
    1 ounce of Tuna, Canned in Water
    1/2 cup of Shredded Wheat
    1 large Orange

    Or invited people round for dinner, and served them:

    1/4 tsp of Mustard
    1 100% Whole Grain/Wholemeal Roll
    1 cup of Kale
    3 ounces of Salmon?

    This was just a couple of ‘recipes’ from the first day. I had no interest whatsoever in looking any further, it was a total letdown and a huge waste of money. The site does contain recipes that people have sent input it gives no indication of the nutritional vales of each one, so you can’t use them to plan your weekly intake of food, I just feel as though I’ve been completely taken for a ride and been rinsed out of £37 which I really could have used right now.

    Russell, if you want a free site to do all you have mentioned and also allow for you to put in your own recipes and break down the nutrition, go to livestrong.com. The free membership is very informative and also helpful if you have diabetes.
