About Trim Down Club

Developed by nutritionists and dieticians, Trim Down Club is a membership-based weight loss program that’s claimed to help men and women lose unwanted fat easily, permanently, and naturally; increase strength and energy, live healthier, and simply feel better.

In order to accomplish this, Trim Down Club claims to address the root cause of weight gain by providing 3 things:

  • Customized meal plans that match your body type, your tastes, and your lifestyle.
  • A collection of recipes that are delicious, nutritious, and most importantly, enjoyable.
  • Nutritional advice that is accurate and presented in a “clear, practical way.”

Perhaps most of all, Trim Down Club is focused on bringing together a community of likeminded people who are focused on helping others enjoy good food and lose weight, which is why they call themselves a “club” in the first place.

We know you’re excited to lose weight and live healthier. But once you get past all the marketing, can you really expect Trim Down Club to help you “get the body you’ve always wanted, naturally?” Consider the following:

How Does the Trim Down Program Help You Lose Weight?

It’s no secret that in today’s fast-paced world, nearly all of us are carrying around a few extra pounds based on the poor food choices we make.

Because of this, Trim Down Club primarily helps members lose weight by eliminating highly processed food from your diet and providing step-by-step instructions to naturally melt fat. All of this without 1) counting calories (or carbs, fat grams, or points), 2) subscribing to fad diets or pills, or 3) hunger or deprivation. In fact, Trim Down Club’s program is claimed to allow you to replace every bad food that you eliminate with at least one good food that you enjoy.

From a social aspect, Trim Down Club claims to have an active community of members who can help you keep you motivated throughout the process, as well as different interest-specific groups you can join, including beginners, a variety of tips and tricks, members who are 50+, support tools, and more.

How Quickly Will You Lose Weight with Trim Down Club?

According to Trim Down Club’s FAQ, “you will notice changes in how your clothes fit within the first month,” in addition to shrinking bulges in specific areas, less swollen fingers and face, and more.

Overall, this generally translates into 1-3 pounds lost per week, depending on how overweight you are, which will continue occurring until you reach your target weight or hit a plateau.

In addition, your high cholesterol and diabetes symptoms may improve, as well as your energy levels and strength.

What Kinds of Recipes Are Featured in the Trim Down Club? 

Trim Down Club provides a vast assortment of recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on their website, as well as salads, soups, drinks, and more. These recipes even include desserts, since they claim you shouldn’t be deprived, although you will need to eat sweets in appropriate portions.

If you’re wondering if there are any recipes that match your tastes, you can browse their Recipes page without first signing up for a membership. And if you need a specialized menu based on your specific needs, such as gluten-free, low-cholesterol, low-sugar, non-dairy, or vegetarian, Trim Down Club claims to have recipes for you as well.

According to the company, these recipes can be made using foods found at your local supermarket, although they may cost more than the groceries you’re currently buying.

Does Trim Down Club Focus On Exercise?

Trim Down Club claims that 80% of weight loss revolves around the foods you eat, and only 20% relates to exercise. As such, the company focuses primarily on “balanced, complete nutrition incorporating whole, fresh foods,” and claims that many people use the program to lose weight without ever exercising.

With this said, Trim Down Club membership does include access to an “anywhere, anytime” exercise program that incorporates fitness equipment you already own.

This means that while Trim Down Club may help you get trim, if you’re also looking to become toned, you’ll likely need to find an exercise program elsewhere.

Are Customers Losing Weight with Trim Down Club?

We’ve received a total of 79 Trim Down Club reviews here at HighYa since writing our original review, with customers giving the program an average rating of 2 stars, and 19% claiming they’d recommend it to a friend. As far as compliments, some customers appear to have been pleased with the weight loss results they achieved, the company’s easy-to-use meal plans and menus, and stated that the information provided can help you achieve long-term weight loss.

On the other hand, the most common Trim Down Club complaints appeared to revolve around constant upsells (we’ll talk more about this in the next section), disappointment with the featured content (many even stated that much of the same information can be found elsewhere online for free), and difficult customer service experiences.

Many of these complaints were mirrored on this SparkPeople.com forum thread,  on Scambook.com, and many other online review sites.

From a company perspective, Trim Down Club is owned and operated by B2C Media Solutions Ltd based in Israel (according to their Health Disclaimer page), although the Better Business Bureau lists their address in San Francisco, CA. There, the company wasn’t rated but had 2 closed complaints (as of 6/10/15), which appeared to reference unwanted upcharges.

Trim Down Club Pricing & Refund Policy

Trim Down Club memberships are priced at $47. For this price, you’ll receive the following:

  • Quick Start Guide – Gives you an overview of the Trim Down Club program and helps you get started in less than 15 minutes.
  • Trim Down Main Program – Claims to outline everything you need to reach your weight loss goals and achieve the slim body you desire.
  • Trim Down Club Cookbook – “Some of the most extremely delicious recipes” that can be prepared in a relatively short amount of time in the comfort of your own home.
  • Food Shopping the Proper Way – Helps you see past food marketing gimmicks and buy only the healthiest and greatest tasting foods available.
  • Yes, We Can Maintain – Helps you naturally remain slim by avoiding old bad habits and understanding triggers that cause hunger cravings.
  • Online Tools – Progress meter, personal menu planner, diet journal, and other tools you can use to stay on track with your weight loss journey.

You’ll pay only one time with Trim Down Club, and will receive unlimited, lifetime access thereafter. Important note: As we saw from some of the complaints above, “lifetime access” doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t be presented with many offers (some customers claim there are too many) after signing up. And once you’re excited to begin your weight loss journey, you may be primed to make purchases you’ll later regret.

Like all products sold through Clickbank, your Trim Down Club membership comes with a 60-day refund policy, although the only way to request a refund is by sending a message through their online contact form.

Is Trim Down Club the Right Weight Loss Program for You?

Chopping to the point: As you might imagine, there are dozens of personal factors that go into finding a weight loss program that meets your needs. As such, Trim Down Club may work impressively well for some individuals, and less so (or not at all) for others.

The good news is that Trim Down Club doesn’t claim to be a quick fix, and states upfront that it will take willpower and dedication on your part to achieve your weight loss goals.

With this in mind, Trim Down Club seems to focus primarily on nutrition (which appears to be the most important aspect of losing weight), although you’ll need to look elsewhere for anything more than basic exercise techniques. Also, be sure start slowly and not be persuaded to purchase everything that’s presented as soon as you sign up.

    Misleading

    • Olympia, WA,
    • Jun 28, 2015

    This is not an expensive diet club to join, because you do not receive written material, which is explained in the description of the club prior to joining. I found that this wasn't as convenient as I thought it would be. I receive emails, constantly, that I have to find time to sit down at a computer to read. For myself, receiving written material would be preferable.

    The biggest problem with this club is that it is a way to advertise products. Be it vitamins, shakes, snack bars, and books. In addition, there are presentations that you need to sit through and listen to if you want to find out what what foods not to eat, what vitamins you need, or the latest plant found to help lose weight, and then at the end, a sales pitch.

    I am not at all impressed with this club. It is cheap for a reason, unless you order the products, you don't get much. I believe I paid extra to get the information and updates from the nutritionists that work with them, only to be pitched a reason why I need their products.

    I didn't get what I expected. It's mail just advertising and throwing sales pitches at us. I would not recommend it to anyone.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    No response to request for money back

    • Sun City CA,
    • Jun 10, 2015

    Within 24 hours of signing up I requested cancelation of program and a refund. I sent a second request and no acknowledgement. I will give them a few more days and if no reply I will write to the Attorney General, Better Business Bureau, etc. No phone number or address to write to. I don't trust this site.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I think this a very misleading company.

    • Bowie, MD,
    • Jun 10, 2015

    On June 7th, 2015, I signed up for the $47 level. I was told that I could upgrade for an additional $20 which I did. When I checked my bank statement I was billed for the $47 and separately for the $67 which I think is a rip off. I could not find contact information for them anywhere. When my bank statement came, their phone number was listed on it. So I called the bank and was told that the money will be back in my account within 3-5 business days.

    For those of you who need it the company phone number, it is 800-390-6035 or their direct number is 1-208-395-4245.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Rebecca

      1-208-395-4245 IS NOT their direct line. That number goes to the Legal department for a corporate office. Please stop calling it. Thanks.

    • Jul 2, 2015

      Linda Rhine

      800-390-6035 is the number for ClickBank which is the one to call to cancel and get a refund. Thank you for posting this number as I have not gotten any responses from the Trim Down Club after two cancelation requests.

    Over rule refund

    • Cloverdale, CA,
    • May 12, 2015

    My husband signed up on 9th for Trim Down Club. I canceled it on Monday only to find that they lied and did not cancel but instead overrode my cancellation with promises of more features.

    We are now in the process of fighting this bait and switch program.

    Advertising not a healthful program

    I have not received anything other than just additional advertising for my $47. No diet plan, recipes, etc. I only received a very long introduction that forever, says it is free, and then gives you the price. I want my money back and an apology for all the advertising junk they put on my email.

      CAROL SEROTA

      I ordered this program expecting to receive instructional booklets by mail; instead, I learned that everything is via computer and I'm not that technologically savvy. I asked for a refund the following day. The advertised 48 hour response time has lapsed. Then I read other customers' comments who did not receive their refund. I am now concerned that I am a scam victim. If that becomes the case, I will report this company to the BBB, AARP and other agencies dealing with scams.

    Does what it says BUT be careful

    • Bournemouth England,
    • Apr 15, 2015

    I joined after watching the video presentation and was impressed. so paid the £37 lifetime fee. Then as you navigate your way to Checkout you are BOMBARDED with multiple other offers and products, all of which I declined.

    If you're smart and don't fall into the "special offer" BS then this site is great. It shows me all my meals for the week and I like that the recipes ideas are great too.

    I have nothing bad to say about it, for me it does exactly what I want and that's meals planned within calories and snacks taken care of too.

    If you did get sucked in with the BS "Special Offers" then you only have yourself to blame. You HAVE to click yes to buy and you did, so it was your choice. I chose not to and to be honest didn't even pay attention to what they were trying to sell me, as I had bought what I wanted anyway.

    Bottom line - for 37 Quid for life it does me fine.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Don't do it!

    To use or not to use Trim Down Club

    • Langley, BC,
    • Apr 6, 2015

    I joined the TDC about 4 weeks ago. My husband and I are working on losing weight. So far I have lost 5 lbs. We are planning to stick with it. But I will agree with others that it can become expensive. The first week I went grocery shopping I spent $400. That is two weeks worth of regular grocery money. I find that the gluten-free bias is annoying as there is no scientific proof that gluten is bad for a person. About the extras that they push -- no one says you have to buy them. After watching two of these videos I have decided not to bother, as they are just trying to sell me stuff. I asked them if I could get the same results by eating raspberries as using the raspberry stuff they are flogging. Their reply was to go to a forum and see what others think. Not a good answer. They rarely answer questions, but that is all right. I have a good grasp on what a good diet is. The diet plan is not bad. I don't think anyone eats a 100% great diet, no matter what they eat. I do find, though, that the preparation is very time consuming. However, we plan to stick with the diet for another few weeks to see if we can shift some more weight. The bottom line is to try to eat more fruits and vegetables (I have never eaten so much salad in my life) and smaller portions. I realize that we have been overeating by having portions that were too large.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Refund

    • Chattanooga, Tennessee,
    • Apr 6, 2015

    The product does not work as promised. There was no phone number on the website to a discuss refund. My credit card company gave me the ClickBank phone number to secure a refund. The phone number is 1-866-266-0212. They sent me a refund email immediately.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I think it's a scam!

    • Apr 1, 2015

    This is a scam because they said it was $47 and they took that plus another $67. Now I'm trying to get my money back and I can not get any phone number. All I got was one one email which said welcome and I would hear from them Friday. Still nothing...
