Thin From Within is a new weight loss program that has been getting a lot of attention lately. But is it any good? Or is this just going to be a waste of your time and money? Is Thin From Within a scam?
We have all seen our fair share of scams when it comes to weight loss product/programs. It seems that every new product out there claims to be a super easy solution for you to lose weight, most of which turn out to be complete duds.
So is this the real deal? In this review I will be going over what exactly is included in the program and how it works. In short… No this is not a scam and you will see why.
Thin From Within is a weight loss program that was put together by a guy named Brad Pilon. It is promoted as a healthy alternative to other diets out there, such as keto, and as the focus of being a long-term sustainable method of losing weight and keeping that weight off.
But before I get into it all, who is this Brad guy?
Who Is Brad Pilon?
It it is always important to look into the person, or people, behind the products you purchase. If this guy were just some guy off the street, you might not want to trust his advice. However, Brad is a two times best-selling author, is most successful book being “Eat Stop Eat”, which was focused on the intermittent fasting diet.
I did some extra research into this book and found it to have very good reviews. You can look it up on various websites out there, such as Amazon.
Brad isn’t just some guy that decided to write a book. He has had an interest in health and supplements since a young age and pursued this interest throughout graduate school, having done a lot of research on various subjects over the years.
The point me talking about him is to show you that he is qualified make up a diet program like this.
His program, Thin From Within, is promoted on a website called Truth About Keto. It is marketed in response to the new ketogenic diet craze with all sorts of keto programs and products, such as Keto OS, being marketed all over. There are a lot of strong believers in the keto diet but many nonbelievers. It is not recommended by many health professionals due to possible negative effects.
Brad explains that the keto diet can be dangerous, it in particular to women, and is just not a good sustainable diet to lose weight and keep it off.
Basically the sales pages that keto is not a good diet and that his Thin From Within diet is a better alternative, which does seem to be true.
The keto diet is all about getting your body into a state of ketosis.
What is ketosis?
Ketosis is a state of fat burning where you deplete your body of glycogen (carb storage) and this then causes your body to produce ketones, burning fat as fuel instead of carbohydrates. It is said to be a much cleaner and more steady fuel without the crashes that you might experience when running on large amounts of carbs, but there are definitely some downsides.
According to Dr. Pilon, the keto diet is more harmful for women and has more negative side effects. It shuts off the hormone leptin, which, in women, is the main hormone responsible for weight loss and fat metabolism. And where it gets really ugly is when this is coupled with the lack of insulin hormone produced, which is also a result of the ketogenic diet.
Brad claims that ketogenic diets can lead to rapid weight loss, which is what most people are looking for. The problem is that they can also lead to rapid weight gain as soon as you come off of the diet, which is bound to happen due to its unsustainability.
He provides many scientific references backing up the claims made on his website.
But besides what he says, I also have my own knowledge on the ketogenic diet based on research I have done into it previously.
From what I know there is definitely a lack of long-term research on this diet. Most of the studies performed have only watched test subjects for a period of several months at most. This does not show the diet to be sustainable long-term in any way.
What you should also know is that depleting your body of glycogen, which is what you will have to do to get into the state of ketosis, will cause you to lose a lot of water. What this might do is show weight loss in a misleading way, much of the weight loss actually coming from water weight instead of fat.
The Think From Within diet is all about being a healthy and sustainable way to lose weight and keep it off. It does not involve any pills, powders, potions or anything like that.
The approach that this diet takes is a multi-phased approach, which consists of:
The “microbolic” rebalancing portion is all about getting the bacteria in your gut back in balance. Have you ever heard of gut flora? Well this is what I am talking about here. For any diet to work optimally you need good digestion and you will not get good digestion without a healthy flora balance.
An imbalance of gut flora can create many different gastrointestinal problems which will more than likely lead to worse results.
This is something that is often overlooked when it comes to diets. Many of the diet pills/drugs out there on the market will just end up distracting this balance and having a negative effect.
The metabolic override portion is all about custom nutrition and workout plans. In this program he offers a variety of different plans available to fit your lifestyle, fitness level, etc.
There are coaching videos for all of the exercises outlined. All in all, the 12 week program consists of 143 videos.
To purchase Thin From Within it is going to cost you $37 plus shipping. When I was on the site the shipping was priced at around $9.95, but I have read a few other reviews from people claiming the shipping was up around $19. I don’t know… Maybe this has to do with where you live or maybe they just ended up lowering the price.
Shipping price is a bummer, but paying $37 for the program itself is a good price in my opinion.
Obviously I do not consider Thin From Within a scam. I don’t know why anyone would either. The weight loss program is designed by someone who knows what they’re talking about, it does not lead you to believe there will be miracles performed, it is all around healthy and does not promote unhealthy forms of weight loss, and overall is just a good program.
The keto diet is good in many ways, and many people swear by it, but there are just too many possible downsides and not enough long term studies for this to be a very good choice as a sustainable weight loss and weight management program.
If you are looking for a healthy weight loss program then Thin From Within it is definitely worth considering.
Anyways… I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful in one way or another. Please leave any questions, comments, or concerns below and I will get back to you as soon as I can 🙂 Also, if you have your own review of this program you can also leave that below. I am sure other readers will appreciate it.
