    BioTrust Belly Trim XP - Can they be Trusted?

    Overall Experience:

    Very long video marketing sales pitch, which was very convincing and the upselling is very heavy. I ended up paying over $200 for six bottles. I've been taking four pills a day for two months straight with the occasional missed or forgotten moments and I have not lost a single pound. I'm eating healthier, buying much more organic and better made food, and staying away from high fructose corn syrup (the main cause for America's obesity and that's what cancer feeds on the most). I'm walking more for exercise. I have a desk job and sit most of the day.

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

      Company Response from BioTRUST

      Hi Jeff,

      I hope this finds you doing well! My name is Tim Skwiat, and I am the Director of Nutrition and Exercise with BioTrust Nutrition. Thank you very much for sharing your input. We value all customer feedback, as it's our goal to provide you with world-class customer service and an overwhelming positive experience overall. Along those lines, it's also our ultimate goal to help you achieve yours, and I hope that you will allow me the opportunity to accompany on your journey as your own personal nutrition and exercise coach.

      You mentioned that you've been taking BellyTrim XP for two months as well as making better food choices. That's fantastic that you've made such significant strides toward improving your nutrition; great job! Although you've cited no change on the scale, I wonder if you've noticed any improvements in any other areas of your life (e.g., better feelings of wellbeing, energy levels, sleep quality, focus/concentration, etc.). I've often found that we have a tendency to beat ourselves up because we think we’re not making progress. Yet, the truth is, in almost every case, we’re making tons of progress. We just haven’t tracked it, and so we don’t realize it.

      With that in mind, I wonder if you've monitored any other variables (e.g., anthropometrics, girth measurements, body fat percentage)? When looking at the wealth of research on the primary ingredients in BellyTrim XP (i.e., conjugated linoleic acid, CLA), CLA has consistently been shown to improve body composition (i.e., increase lean body mass, decrease body fat). What's interesting is that these improvements in body composition are not always followed by net changes in body mass.

      In other words, if one is only using the scale to measure objective outcomes, s/he may be missing out on progress. In the overall scheme of things, while most folks have their eyes set on the scale (i.e., body weight, net body mass), what seems to be far more important than scale weight is body composition (i.e., percentage body fat). However, if one is only using the scale (and not assessing body fat percentage and/or taking girth measurements), then fat loss and muscle gain cannot be accurately tracked. It's completely possible for someone to be "normal" weight and overfat (which has very serious implications for health risks). Likewise, it's possible for someone to be "fat and fit." In other words, it's possible for someone to be "overweight" (by BMI standards) yet have excellent metabolic health and reduced disease risk.

      With all of that being said, I sense that your goal is weight loss, and while there may be some (currently undetected) changes in body composition already present, I want to make myself available to you for direct coaching assistance in achieving your goals. I invite you to contact me directly at so that I can learn more about you and we can get the coaching process started.

      I do want to remind you that you're protected by our one-year money-back guarantee. If for any reason you're not completely satisfied, just let our customer service team know and we'll cheerfully issue you a refund even for unused bottles.

      With regard to the ordering process, we do provide customers with the option of purchasing additional bottles or products at heavily discounted prices. However, any additional purchases are completely optional; we simply extend these offers in order to provide our customers with the best possible value.

      I look forward to hearing from you, Jeff. Keep up the great work!

      My best,

      Coach Tim
