Turbo Diet Review
What You Should Know
Turbo Diet is a juicing plan created by celebrity nutritionist Cherie Calbom. The plan is easy and simple to follow. Instead of counting calories and partaking in the next big fad diet, dieters simply replace meals with a raw food smoothie. Calbom states dieters will lose a minimum of 10 pounds in 10 days. The Turbo Diet does not address exercise or supplementation. Our question centers around how this process works simply by changing one meal per day.
List of Ingredients
- Diet plan instructing dieters to incorporate juicing into their weight management plan.
The Turbo Diet relies on the advice and recommendations of Cherie Calbom, expert nutritionist. The plan explains common ailments and setbacks created by choosing the wrong foods. The diet addresses diet as well as emotional eating. The solution provided to dieters is eliminating meals and replace with juicing. The book continues to state that if followed correctly, you will lose 10 pounds in 10 days.
Calbom has a degree in nutrition, but our concern is the diet plan has no basis in science. There is no evidence the plan actually works. We did notice several customer testimonials claiming the plan was effective, but no information relating to clinical trials.
We took a deeper dive into the program and found the cost outrageous. Not the price of the book, but the cost it takes to follow the plan. The book retails on the official website and Amazon.com for less than $12. Quite expensive to say the least. The cost for food for just the first week could easily exceed $300. The average dieter will not be willing to invest $12 in order to spend an additional $300.
- The diet plan is available on the official website as well as Amazon.com
- The plan incorporates fresh fruits and vegetables into your diet.
- The plan does not offer new information as it relates to juicing.
- The initial costs are expensive.
- There is no guarantee of weight loss.
- There are no clinical trials or scientific research associated with the Turbo Diet.
There are definitely benefits of switching traditional meals for juicing. You add fresh fruits and vegetables into your diet, you add vital nutrients and you have the ability to detox the body. The concern we have with the Turbo Diet is the lack of new information. The author appears to regurgitate existing information and claim it as new. There is another concern relating to weight loss. Losing 10 pounds in 10 days is extreme. There is no consideration given to supplementation or exercises, both that are necessary to lose maximum amounts of weight.
