How We Review Our Featured Products
Since 2008, we have reviewed over 15,000 diet products and heard from thousands of product users. We have selected rating criteria that our readers find important. We put together this comparison table so that readers can quickly and easily see how a product that they may be interested in compares to the top weight loss products currently on the market.
For detailed information on how we evaluate products and programs, please see our review guidelines.
The criteria we use to rate products are all things that our readers want to know about when choosing a product or program that can help them lead a healthier life. They are:
Is the product effective? We rely on research published in peer-reviewed journals; analysis from our nutritionists and dietitians; and comments and reviews from users around the web to make a determination of whether a product is effective.
Is there a sample offer? Companies, from time to time, extend sample offers to new customers. Sample offers are useful for consumers because they can “try before they buy”.
Are there testimonials? Customer reviews are a huge source of product information independent of research. We attempt to weed out reviews that are clearly from resellers or those biased in any way.
In many cases, we offer details on the return policy including the length of time to return, whether the product can be returned after use, how much money the customer can expect to be refunded and when the return period starts (at time of order, at time of shipment or at time of receipt.)
