48 "Real World" Reasons This Will Work For YOU

"I Eat BOXES Of Glorious Cereal Each Week While Maintaining 4% Body Fat..."



The Cheat Your Way Thin program has been one of the coolest things I've ever had the opportunity to do. To be honest, it's fantastic.
For a fitness model who needs to stay in top condition year round, Cheat Your Way Thin has proved to be the easiest, most effective, realistic means for me to do so.


The most exciting part is I get to revisit my childhood days of putting away mounds--scratch that--BOXES of glorious cereal on a weekly basis all while maintaining 4% body fat and getting more work now than ever before.  For me, the Cheat Your Way Thin program has become a way of life-- a diet that I can live with.

"Cheat Your Way Thin Got Me My

Pre-baby Body Back!"


I was thin until I was thirty and had my first child.  The first few years with her, I didn't think about the weight because I was so busy having fun.  That said, being heavy had started to become more bothersome to me the last several years.  I wanted my cute figure back, but for a long time getting it back was no easy task—then I learned about The Cheat Your Way Thin program by Joel Marion.


With Cheat Your Way Thin, I learned how to lose body fat while still consuming my favorite foods on a weekly basis.  The science behind the program made SO much sense, and before long, my reflection in the mirror was backing up the science with real world results.


Ironically, I noticed the phenomenon of cheating and then subsequently losing weight previously, but I had no idea how or when to use the tactic.  Cheat Your Way Thin showed me how.  

This is an easy, fun way to lose weight that I can see myself sticking with for a long time to come.  And the best part is that the first place the weight came off was my my belly and hips—my most troublesome areas after pregnancy!

"BY FAR The Most Fun 'Diet' I've Ever Been On..."



I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical about this whole “cheating” thing when Joel first introduced me to it me a few months ago.  My first cheat day was filled with lattes, French toast, pizza, ice cream, and a couple cookies to top it off—I definitely felt like I was breaking the rules.


Would this, could this possibly work?


Well, I guess the answer is in the mirror—YES, it can…and it does!


With the Cheat Your Way Thin system, I’m back into my “skinny” jeans, have made a ton of progress, and still my body is changing each and every week.  Beyond that, this is BY FAR the most fun "diet" I have ever been on!

"I've Never Experienced This Much Freedom While Dieting EVER Before!"


Dieting doesn’t mean restriction anymore.  I always looked at dieting as a thing of denial, but on The Cheat Your Way Thin program, there are just too many options when it comes to the food I’m able to eat to feel even the least bit deprived.  I’ve never experienced such freedom while dieting ever before.


It amazes me to be eating like this and losing more weight than I was when being restrictive and eating so little.  In 10 weeks, I have lost 33 lbs of pure fat.  That’s incredible.  My energy is through the roof.  This experience has spilled over to every area of my life—I’m now more passionate than ever about achieving my work and family related goals, and am working toward them with much improved confidence and health.

"I've Never Been Able To Stick To A Diet Until Now..."



In eight weeks, I cheated to drop 18 lbs and 14.5 inches!  I'm now fitting back into jeans I wore almost 10 years ago in high school, and there's no way I would have been able to do it without The Cheat Your Way Thin program.  I've never been able to stick to a diet because I've never been able to week after week deprive myself of my most favorite foods; well, with The Cheat Your Way Thin program, I didn't have to!  I've gotten so many compliments from friends and family members, and even just recently bought some new "sexy" clothing to wear out.  My boyfriend is proud of me, I'm proud of myself, and I'm both looking and feeling great!

"This Program Has Changed My Entire Family!"


We decided to do The Cheat Your Way Thin program as a family—and it’s been a wonderful experience all around.  In only eight weeks time, I lost over 5% body fat, my wife was finally able to rid herself of those last 10 lbs she had been struggling to lose (and has kept them off), and my 16 year old son is now more than 20 lbs lighter.  Together, as a family, we have encouraged each other and pulled each other through—but we couldn’t have done it without an approach like The Cheat Your Way Thin program.


With other diets, we’d fail as they limited too many things.  With The Cheat Your Way Thin program, we learned how to enjoy all types of foods in their right time and place—including things like pizza and ice cream.  The Cheat Day was an excellent motivator for us as it encouraged good behavior to be rewarded later.  Because of Cheat Your Way Thin, my family is now enjoying eating, looking, and being healthier.  Additionally, there is no value that can be put on the compliments we receive from friends and other family members when they see us.  We’re very proud of our accomplishments and thankful for a program such as Cheat Your Way Thin that has made those accomplishments both achievable and maintainable.

"The People Who Use Joel's Teaching Get Lean And Cut.  The People Who Don't, Stay Fat. It's That Simple."



In the Cheat Your Way Thin program Joel Marion teaches the science of fat loss in a conversational and easy to understand way.

I personally practice and teach his "cheating methods" to ALL of my clients. I have done so for years. The reason I teach it?

It works.

The people who follow his plan get lean and cut. The people that don't, stay fat. Plain and simple.

If you've failed with other programs in the past and you want to get thin, buy this program, read the book, and then follow his program manual to the letter.

I promise you it will be one of the best decisions you've ever made.

"Cheat Your Way Thin Helped Me Lose 50 LBS And Completely Change My Life..."


The Cheat Your Way Thin program has completely changed my life.  I am 50 lbs lighter and have lost more than 10 inches around my waist—and I’m still going.  I have confidence again.  I have a feeling that I will be there for my son when he grows up.  I have self-respect again, and I feel I have regained respect from others. There is no aspect of my life that has not changed for the better since I started the Cheat Your Way Thin program. 


I honestly believe if I had not discovered Cheat Your Way Thin, I would be over 300 pounds right now, depressed, not doing well at work, and not being a great dad to my son.  Instead, I am happy, healthy, full of energy, and confident.


I have been hiking with my 25+ pound son on my back, going up trails I could not have done a year ago with no additional weight. I am doing things on the tennis court and the hockey rink that I have not been able to do for years.  I am even thinking of participating in a triathlon this upcoming year. My life has changed, as well as my lifestyle and my overall level of happiness and success.  Without this approach, I would never be able to stick to a diet, and my past is proof of just that. For me, this is not a diet; it is a way of life.  Thank you Cheat Your Way Thin!

"At Best I'd Last A Month On Any Diet...Now I've Maintained The 20 LBS I Lost For 6 Months!"

(Proud Mother Of Two!)



Prior to Cheat Your Way Thin, the longest I lasted on any sort of "diet" was about a month or so.  That's when the cravings would really start to kick in and I'd fall victim to them every time.  I just didn't have the willpower it took to stay on a diet, or at least that's what I thought.


Then I read about Joel's Cheat Your Way Thin program and how he actually encourages dieters to cheat on a regular basis.  I was definitely a pro at cheating, so I decided to give it a try.  Instead of being emotionally distraught with random "screw ups", the weekly planned cheating of the Cheat Your Way Thin program had me cheating with a purpose.  Finally, I found a diet that I can actually stick to.  Six months later, I'm still maintaining the 20 lbs of fat I lost (From 127 to 107 at 5'2") and love the energy I have each day to spend on my kids.

"Cheat Your Way Thin Is NOTHING A 'Diet'

Typically Is..."


To me, "diet" is the most offensive of any four letter word.  It implies restriction, deprivation, and struggle-- all for very little in the end most times.  The Cheat Your Way Thin program is none of these things.  Instead, it's fun, full of choices and plenty of good food, and most importantly, it works.  Coming off a back injury and very little physical activity for over a month, The Cheat Your Way Thin program helped me to easily lose over twenty pounds of unwanted body fat in less than three months time.  I'm happier, my wife is happier, and my life in general has benefited greatly because of it-- that's a true reward.

"I've Lost Fat, Gained Confidence, And Am Enjoying Life To Its Fullest!"


The Cheat Your Way Thin program has completely changed the way I look at dieting.  I had always experienced the quick plateau Joel talks about when trying to be extremely strict with my diet, and now I know why-- I was fighting a losing battle against my own body!  Restriction, restriction, restriction-- all leading nowhere.  Now when I indulge, I do so without apprehension because not only do I understand how it will accelerate fat loss, I see the results.

The set up of Cheat Your Way Thin has helped me lose fat, gain confidence, all while enjoying life to its fullest.  Denying oneself the finer things in life, one of which is certainly good food, really is no way to live.  This is a long term approach to weight management.

"I Used To Cheat And Fail Miserably...Now I Cheat To WIN!"



The Cheat Your Way Thin program has been one of the most effective diets I have ever been on.  I consistently lost weight and inches week after week, leaving me down more than 30 inches and 35 pounds in only 10 weeks!  On other diets, I've always had uncontrollable cravings and would end up cheating.  On The Cheat Your Way Thin program, frequent cheating is a major reason why I've been able to achieve such great success!  With the addition of more carbs every couple of days, I almost never feel hungry during the week.  Furthermore, in the rare event that I do get a craving, I am able to easily resist knowing that another Cheat Day where I'm able to eat literally anything I want is just around the corner.

"This Program Helped Me Restore My 'Dead' Metabolism And Lose More Than 25 Unwanted Inches From My Body!"


In 2003, I went from just over 300 lbs to just under 200 via very low carb dieting, but was struggling to lose any additional weight.  As a matter of fact, when I tried to reintroduce carbs to my daily diet, my weight shot back up 30 lbs!  For months I struggled to find a balance between consuming some sort of "normal" diet and achieving the weight loss I was hoping for, but feared I had done too much damage to my metabolism over the past year.  Months went by without achieving any real results and then I began the Cheat Your Way Thin program under Joel's supervision.  Not only did this diet help to restore my "dead" metabolism, but it helped me to effortlessly lose just over 25 unwanted inches from my body!

"I No Longer Feel Deprived When Dieting..."


As a personal trainer, I have been on a “diet” most of my adult life.  That said, dieting has always left me feeling deprived, never satisfied.  After all, diets are generally restrictive in nature, telling you all about the foods you can’t eat.  In contrast, The Cheat Your Way Thin program is about what you can eat and it even goes a step beyond to teach you how you can make literally any and every type food part of your life.  


In eight weeks, Cheat Your Way Thin has helped me achieve my leanest conditioning, assisting me in dropping an additional 9 inches from my frame.  And the best part—I was able to drop my regular “diet” and am now enjoying eating a wide variety of foods on a weekly basis.  I’m no longer feeling deprived, and that’s a great feeling.

"I Dropped 30 Pounds DURING The Holidays!"



I started the program the week before Thanksgiving and it was my year to have all of my family over for both Thanksgiving and Christmas.

With Cheat Your Way Thin Joel taught me how to use periodic cheating during the holidays to speed along my progress, and I think my progress pretty much speaks for itself!


The way I feel about myself and the confidence that following this program has given me is indescribable.  I thank God everyday that this program found its way into my home.  I feel like a brand new person.  When I go shopping at the mall, I can go into those cute hip stores again. I can shop for “smalls”.  I can show off what I have worked so hard for in a bikini this summer for the first time in over 4 years.


Thank you, thank you, thank you Cheat Your Way Thin!!!

"For The First Time In My Life I Can See My Abs!"


Having been overweight literally my entire life, I had tried just about every weight loss method from low-carb to low-fat-- nothing worked; that is until I took a chance on the Cheat Your Way Thin program.  Who would have thought that regularly "cheating" on my diet would yield these kinds of results?


Because of the Cheat Your Way Thin program, I'm currently at the lowest level of body fat I've ever been (For the first time in my life, I can see my abs!) and with more confidence and energy than every before.  Everyone has been asking me what I've been doing to lose weight; they can't believe the answer when I tell them what I've been eating every Sunday.  Talk about an easy, extremely effective way to achieve your goals-- this diet is a godsend!

"I Used Joel's Strategies To Get Into The Best Shape Of My Life..."



Strategic cheat meals are now a BIG part of my own nutritional plan. Just recently I trained for and competed in my first two fitness model contests and used Joel’s cheat strategies to get into the best shape of my life.


Using cheat meals most certainly can be to your benefit, provided they are planned and not accidental. If there is anything I can recommend to you, it’s that you listen to what Joel teaches in the Cheat Your Way Thin system and remember to cheat with intent and most importantly...CHEAT TO WIN!

"I Dropped Six Inches From My Love Handles!"


The Cheat Your Way Thin program helped me lose 10 lbs during the initial 3-week Phase and 25 lbs total over 10 weeks.  Additionally, I have dropped roughly 6 inches from my love handles!  With Cheat Your Way Thin, you don’t feel like you’re dieting—you’re living.


It was a radical experience to see my weight down another 2 lb at the weigh in following the first phase's celebratory Cheat Day.  At that point, I was more than convinced.  Each and every week I was able to make consistent progress.  My waist is now equivalent to what it was my junior year of high school.  So many people have given me compliments and can’t believe it when I tell them the basics of the program—Cheat Your Way Thin weight, fast and easy.  It really is that simple.

"I Went From The Guy Who Didn't Fit In At

Modeling Shoots To Having People Think I'm
One Of The Models!"



After abandoning corporate life for photography, I spent a lot of time on shoots surrounded by beautiful models. I soon realized that one of these people didn't fit in – me! I was not happy with myself and I decided to learn as much as I could about nutrition and exercise. After reading as much as I could I quickly realized that, unlike other diets, Joel's program actually answered all my questions as to how eating, exercise and metabolism are related. This is not a fad diet! There's no need to ever feel hungry or deprived. I never get bored, in fact, with this plan I enjoy more variety in my diet than ever before.
The Cheat Your Way Thin program educates you about what your body needs, so that no matter where you are, or what's available, you can make informed decisions about what you eat. It's the only program that I've followed that's been realistic for me to continue long-term. I went from being the guy who didn't fit in at modeling shoots to having people assume that I am one of the models. It doesn't get any better than that!

"Before, I Tried To Starve Myself Thin...Now I

CHEAT My Way!"


I have been big pretty much all my life, cresting 200 lbs while still in high school. When I went off to college, my “freshman 15” was more like Herb’s “freshman 55” due to high calorie foods like pasta and pizza. On numerous occasions, I would try to starve off the pounds, eating nothing but salads and drinking green tea, but the weight crept back again and again.  Starving myself was not the answer.  I even tried South Beach and Atkins, but could never adopt them as a way of life—they just weren’t realistic long-term solutions for me.


Then I learned about Joel Marion’s Cheat Your Way Thin program; this is when things really began to change.  In just under two months, I have lost just over 20 lbs (I have never previously experienced such rapid weight loss) while still eating the pasta and the pizza—only now as part of a strategic plan.  I understand when and where I can enjoy these things, and because everything has a time and place on The Cheat Your Way Thin program, I am confident that I’ll be able to maintain this lifestyle for a long time to come.

"I Lost 48 LBS And Never Felt Like I Was Dieting..."



Before finding The Cheat Your Way Thin program, both my wife and I had been suffering from major dietary boredom and burnout.  Virtually every traditional diet we've tried called for the same day-in, day-out eating pattern-- same calorie intake, same foods, same monotonous set-up.  Then we came across Joel's program, and wow, how refreshing!  Over the last sixteen weeks, Carrie and I have together lost close more than 70 lbs (48 myself!), but the best part-- the variety of The Cheat Your Way Thin program is such that we don't even feel like we're dieting.  Not only that, but in addition to all the weekly diversity, we're able to frequently take a break from all dieting and eat whatever we want-- without feeling guilty!  This is a diet for "normal" people, and it has helped us to actually start enjoying eating and living healthy again.

"The Only Liveable 'Diet' I've Ever Come Across..."


The Cheat Your Way Thin program is the only truly livable diet that I've come across.  At 53 years of age, I've been on my fair share of diets, and never before have I been able to lose weight so quickly and easily, yet alone while "cheating" on my diet so frequently!  In only eight weeks time, I was able to exceed my goals by dropping 27 pounds and 4 pants sizes.  


I feel better, look better, and have more energy than I've had in years.  Thank you!

"I'll Never Attempt To Lose Weight Another Way!"


After dropping 12 lbs during the diet's first phase, admittedly, I was a little apprehensive about implementing all-out cheat days each week during the main phase.   Six weeks later, down a total of 13.5 inches (4 on my waist!) and just over 20 lbs, I think it's safe to say I no longer have those concerns!  The Cheat Your Way Thin program is an amazing tool-- a fun, easy way to lose weight.  Coming into the diet, I didn't really know what to expect, but after seeing results like these, I'll never attempt to lose weight another way.

"I'm Now Fitting Into Jeans I Couldn't Even Wear BEFORE I Was Pregnant!"


I had never been on a diet before, but after having my son I knew I needed to do something to lose my post pregnancy weight.  Fortunately, I came across The Cheat Your Way Thin program.  In just 10 weeks I was able to lose all of the weight I gained and then some; I’m actually now fitting into jeans that I haven’t been able to wear for the last 3 years!  And just as Joel prescribed, every week I cheated BIG, enjoying anything I felt like eating—and each week, the scale read less and less.  With The Cheat Your Way Thin program, both the Cheat Days and week to week results kept me motivated.  Through this program, I’m enjoying being healthier while still being able to eat foods I’d never be able to eat on other diets on a weekly basis.

"With The Cheat Your Way Thin Program, I Was Always Satisfied."



With the strategic carbohydrate cycling and Cheat Days of the Cheat Your Way Thin program I was always satisfied. I satisfied my fat tooth in the beginning of the week with cheese, nuts, avocado, steak and so on. Mid-week my sweet tooth got its share of sweetness from fruit. And on Fridays and Saturdays I got my yummy bananas, sweet potatoes, oats, pasta and other starchy carbs.


I got to eat every food group during the week plus have full blown cheat day where I could eat anything I desired, yet I was leaning out and losing inches! I personally do not look at the Cheat Your Way Thin program as a diet. I look at it as healthy balanced eating that allows you to drop fat, preserve/or even build your lean muscle and boost your metabolism. To me, it’s a lifestyle—a plan that I can stick with for rest of my life.

"I Put 'Cheating' To The Test...And It Passed With Flying Colors!"


Dieting in general has always been intimating to me.  While I have tried many, including The Zone and various low-carb approaches, all the rules and regulations were always too cumbersome, difficult, and time consuming.  Then, I read about The Cheat Your Way Thin program, and for once, a dieting approach actually looked fun!  Throughout the course of the diet, I put the Cheat Day to the test with everything from pizza to lasagna to McDonalds, but each and every week, the scale reflected less and less—it was hard to believe!


Over the course of 8 weeks, I was able to effortlessly lose 18 lbs.  The Cheat Your Way Thin program has opened my eyes to the simplicity of becoming and remaining healthy.  This is something I will continue for the rest of my life.

"I Got Rid Of My Stubborn Pregnancy Weight

For Good!"


I started the Cheat Your Way Thin program about one year after my second child was born and unlike after my first child, I was having a hard time losing the weight I had put on during pregnancy.  Despite keeping to a very strict diet, I hadn't made much in the way of progress in literally months, so I decided to give something different a try.


That something different was Joel's Cheat Your Way Thin program.  During the three-week initial phase alone I was able to drop 3 inches from my waist and just about another 3 from my hips!  Wow!  That was more progress in three weeks than I had experienced during the previous three months.  Before long, I was fitting back into my old clothes again and am currently feeling the best I've felt in years!

"Busy Business Traveler Sheds 10 LBS in 4 Weeks"


I contacted Joel with only about a month to go before I was off to visit family on holiday.  I was looking to shed a substantial amount of fat (actual fat, not just water weight) quickly in preparation from my trip as I'd be seeing family I hadn't seen in a while and wanted to look my best.  Joel got me started with the first phase of his Cheat Your Way Thin program.  A diet that starts with a cheat day; now that's my kind of diet!  In just 4 weeks time, despite work related travel and stress, I was able to shed 10 lbs of fat and just over 2 inches on my waist.  While away, I received many compliments from family about how great I was looking.  Since returning, I've continued with Cheat Your Way Thin and am amazed at its ease and effectiveness.

"I Lost 17 LBS and 12% Body Fat By Eating

Pop Tarts???"


I have been considered overweight my whole life.  At 24, I knew I didn’t want to be “the fat girl” for the rest of my life and knew I needed to make a change.  So I tried dieting.  I tried Weight Watchers and South Beach, and while they worked for a short while, I was not able to stick with them for any length of time—they just weren’t realistic for me for the long term.


With The Cheat Your Way Thin program, however, not only was I able to stick with the diet, but over the course of 10 weeks, I lost 12% body fat, 17 inches and even managed to gain several pounds of calorie-burning muscle and a lot of confidence.


All of my clothes are baggy now and I’m actually excited about going clothes shopping!  I’m finally out of Women’s size clothing.  Cheat Your Way Thin is the easiest diet I’ve ever been on and the only one I’ve been able to follow through on.  Knowing I’ll be able to have my favorite Chocolate Frosted Pop Tarts® come Saturday makes sticking to the diet throughout the week an easy task.

"I Use Joel's Cheating Advice To Get SUPER Lean..."



 I have competed successfully in both National and World Figure Competitions and am proud to say that I broke the standard "cutting diets" used by body builders and figure girls of the past by CHEATING to get in tip-top shape!  I used Joel’s recommendations to get super lean in preparation for my shows and now work with other figure girls that I help do the same.


The Cheat Your Way Thin program is easy to understand and follow, and it will keep your body progressing each and every week by curbing all those frustrating plateaus created by low calorie dieting!


Thanks Joel for a great solution to ditching grueling diets and still getting a lean, hard body!

"I Dropped 34 LBS and Six Inches From My Waist In Just 8 Weeks!"


I absolutely love this diet!  With the help of Cheat Your Way Thin, I've dropped 34 pounds and 6 inches on my waist in just 8 weeks!  As someone who is very into sports and resistance training, I had always steered away from dieting in fear of losing strength and performance due to a lack of carbs and calories.  But, because this diet allowed for plenty of both, I decided to give it a shot.  In the end, I'm healthier and more agile and amazingly my strength hasn't decreased at all; in fact, it's gone up!  The only thing I've lost is my gut and a bunch of unwanted body fat.

"The Most Effective, Most Practical Diet I've Ever Been On...Period."


This is the most effective, practical diet I have ever been on, period.  So effective and easy to follow in fact, I've been telling everyone about it.  Each week of the Core Phase flies by knowing that with each passing day come more carbs, more options, and more variety-- and then each week comes to a close with whatever and however much I want to eat for an entire day; no restrictions.  After the cheat day, motivation is high and sticking to the diet for another week is a breeze, especially given the weekly set up.  Cheat Your Way Thin has proven to be everything I always hoped for in a diet and it is a dietary approach I will be using for a very long time to come.

"Less Demands, More Freedom, Faster Fat Loss!"


When I was in L.A. attempting to model several years back, I used Joel's ideas regarding periodic dietary cheating to get down to my leanest condition of 5% body fat, dropping 25 lbs and 10% body fat along the way.  Since then, I continue to practice the principles of the Cheat Your Way Thin program and I've started numerous friends and colleagues on similar programs, always to outstanding results.  I unequivocally feel that anyone who invests in this program will have found a diet they can finally put into consistent practice.  Less demands, more freedom, faster fat loss-- that's what Cheat Your Way Thin is all about.

"For The First Time In A Long Time, I Look In the Mirror And Am Pleased With What I See..."



I am healthy, fit, and full of confidence.  I don’t feel fat.  Instead I feel attractive and like the woman I know I am.  Over the last 12 weeks, I have lost over 25 lbs and 30 inches.  My body fat has decreased by nearly 15%.  For the first time in a very long time, I look in the mirror and am pleased with what I see.  Three months ago I was not able to make these statements.

After years of trying to sort through nutritional misinformation, I met Joel and he shared with me the principles of The Cheat Your Way Thin program.  Suddenly, everything became clear.  I feel as though I finally “get it”.  And what’s even better is I feel as though I’ve been equipped with all the necessary tools to keep this up for a lifetime.  This diet has changed me from the outside in.  It’s maintainable, it’s livable, and it works.

"For Years I Struggled To Lose Weight...Now I'm Down 30 LBS!"


On The Cheat Your Way Thin program, I lost 15 lbs during the first three weeks and over 30 lbs in 10 weeks!  For years, I had struggled immensely with dieting and losing weight, and had begun to lose faith in my ability to stick to any sort of dietary regimen.  Then, I discovered Cheat Your Way Thin.  This is the only diet I’ve ever been able to stick with!  The weekly Cheat Days keep me on track during the week and allow me to regularly enjoy foods I’d never be able to consume on other diets.  They are what make this diet possible for me.  They are the reason Cheat Your Way Thin is not simply a diet, but rather a lifestyle.  This is maintainable; everything else I have tried is not.  Additionally, I’m now fitting into pants and shirt sizes that I haven’t worn for years, my confidence has heightened, and my energy levels have improved dramatically.

"30 LBS In 10 Weeks...Only With Cheat Your

Way Thin!"


Without the outlet of strategic cheating, I’d never be able to stick to a diet—and to know that each cheat feast is actually helping the weight off makes this diet even more remarkable.  In just 10 weeks, I was able to reach my goal of losing 30 lbs.  Without Cheat Your Way Thin, I simply would not have been able to do it.


Now that I've lost the weight, I’m living and enjoying being healthier while still eating a wide variety of foods including all my favorites.  Before, sticking with a diet for more than a few days was a struggle.  Now, I’m confident this is something I’ll be able to continue for a lifetime.

"The Rest Of Your Life Will Thank You For Your Decision..."


The Cheat Your Way Thin program is the easiest dieting approach I’ve ever taken on.  The weekly set-up and Cheat Day provide plenty of variety to satisfy every taste and avoid boredom.  Furthermore, I truly believe this is a diet that literally anyone can have success with.


If you are even remotely thinking about investing in this program, do it—believe me, the rest of your life will thank you for it!

"Brothers Lose 38 LBS and 7 Pants Sizes..."


People tell us everyday that we’re looking more and more like the brothers of old—the healthy, fit Miguel and Armando.  That’s exciting and we have Joel and The Cheat Your Way Thin program to thank!  In addition to the extreme simplicity of the diet, being able to get in such great shape with such a small amount of activity has been tremendous for the both of us.


Collectively, we have lost 38 lbs, 7 pants sizes, and together with our much improved cardiovascular health, we’re both looking and feeling great!

"I Wish Someone Had Told Me About This Earlier!"


I wish someone would have told me about this earlier!  At 40 years old, I am now seeing muscle definition for the first time ever!  The other day, someone even asked me if I was a fitness instructor!  What a compliment!


While I have always been on the petite side, I was carrying quite a bit of body fat on my small frame even at a size four.  The Cheat Your Way Thin program helped me drop back down to a zero, a size I hadn’t worn in years—and with more muscle tone than ever before.  With everything being low-carb nowadays, it was hard to believe I was allowed to eat things like pasta and rice on diet days, yet alone things like cake and ice cream every Saturday!  I couldn’t be more pleased with my results and am even more so enjoying actually maintaining my progress (easily!).

I have to say that the Cheat Your Way Thin program rocks! I generally associate word “diet” with deprivation, cravings, limited choices of food and being constantly hungry. I have not experienced any of these challenges with Cheat Your Way Thin.


As a university student, fitting proper nutrition into my schedule had always been a problem.  With the Cheat Your Way Thin program, however, I was able to eat healthy without having my diet completely consume my life.  The strategic cheat sessions also provided a nice social outlet that dieting in the past didn't offer.  I could plan things for weekends very easily and without guilt.  It all fit into the structure of the diet!  Because of Cheat Your Way Thin, I was able to lose just over 20 lbs of fat and almost 5 inches from my waistline, and if I can do it, anyone can.

"Cheat Your Way Thin Was SO Easy, Even With My Hectic Schedule..."



As a firefighter and paramedic, I have a very hectic schedule – I work 24 hour shifts and live three hours from my job.  Still, I found it easy to plan for my eating on this diet.  By implementing the planning tips Joel provided, I was able to easily consume all meals and always had the appropriate foods ready to go.  Once you get the general pattern of eating down, everything else is a breeze and the diet becomes second nature.  In addition to losing close to 25 lbs, Cheat Your Way Thin has helped me gain confidence and a realization that I am the one in control of my weight and health.


In fact, because I am also a competitive weight lifter (with various weight classes), I sometimes had to switch to the Maintenance Phase of the diet in preparation for a meet as I was actually losing weight too quickly!  But despite having to move down several weight classes, my strength has gone up and I’m competing at an even higher level!  This has never been the case on any other diet I have tried!

"Down 26 LBS and 6% Body Fat...The First Time I Lasted 12 Weeks At Anything!"


In 12 weeks, The Cheat Your Way Thin program has helped me lose 26 lbs and 6% body fat (10 in the Priming Phase alone).  Dieting no longer feels like dieting.  The variety is something I have not found with any other approach and makes this diet one that I feel I can maintain for the rest of my life.  This is the first time I’ve lasted 12 weeks at anything!  The results of this experience have been so invigorating I’m now confident I can achieve any goal I set out to accomplish—and that’s exactly what I plan to do!

"Trying Cheat Your Way Thin Has Proved To Be The Most Valuable Decision I Could Ever Make about My Nutrition..."


I have been an exercise enthusiast since I was 14 years old, but never really concentrated as hard on the nutrition side of the coin.  Consequently, all my hard-earned muscle tone was being covered by a pretty substantial layer of fat.  When I heard about the Cheat Your Way Thin program, I was admittedly a bit skeptical at first-- I mean, I love food and that's the primary reason why I've never dieted, but here was an approach telling me that I didn't have to give that up.  Making the decision to try The Cheat Your Way Thin program has proved to be the most valuable decision I could ever make about my nutrition.  In 12 weeks I have lost over 10% body fat and am so excited about the results that I am considering entering a figure competition to show off my newly found muscle tone!
