|Is this diet safe?
Yes, it is very safe! Of course, we strongly advise you to discuss this
with your family physician prior to starting this or any other weight
loss program. But the Active 8 Better Health-Better Life Diet
Program has been used by many people in clinical trials and
studies and found to be very safe. There are no drugs involved and no
stimulants. All the supplements are manufactured in an American
laboratory of a major pharmaceutical company. They are FDA-certified of
the highest standards and quality. They are guaranteed safe and
effective and not part of any of the FDA's warnings about products
regarding diet pills.
Can I be on the diet if I have
diabetes or high blood pressure? Yes, and in both cases this
diet truly helps both conditions. If you have diabetes, you are
strongly advised to consult your physician. Diabetic patients should
follow this program only under the close supervision of their
physician. If you are being treated with insulin or other
medications, you could experience a significant drop in blood sugar
(hypoglycemia) while on this program. That's a good
thing, but one that needs monitored by your doctor. It is often
necessary to reduce the dosage of diabetic medications during the
course of the program. Most people who are on the diet have also
experienced lower blood pressure.
How much weight can I lose? As
as you want. Normally people lose about 3 to 5 pounds a week if
they have followed the plan. Results, of course, vary by individual.
The single biggest comment from all the people who have lost weight on
this diet is that ‘they don’t feel like they are on a diet.’ It is very
easy to follow and you lose weight without significantly changing your
lifestyle. The biggest thing to remember is to consistently follow
Can I eat out at restaurants on
the Active 8 Better Health Better Life Diet Plan?
Absolutely! And you can eat easily fit what you eat within the diet
plan. That is one of the beautiful aspects of this diet. There are no
wrong foods on this diet. Every food can be part of a healthy diet as
long as you remember to use moderation. We teach you that along the way
so you can go out and eat normal food with all of your family and
Do I have to buy special foods?
No. You buy your regular food at the grocery store, just like always.
No having to pay extra money for special foods.
Do I have to measure or weigh food
or count calories? No! There is no weighing, counting or
measuring with the Active 8 Better Health Better Life Diet Plan.
simply take the supplements as directed, and watch which
combination of foods you eat and when you eat them. During most meals,
you can eat as much as you want of most foods. Really! As much as you
Are there guidelines to the plan? Absolutely,
will receive a complete set of guidelines to the plan; including
what the supplements do, when to take them and how they work. Also,
there are some guidelines as to when to eat certain foods and when to
avoid certain foods. You can eat anything you want, but sometimes for
the control of your blood sugar, it is better to eat them during
certain times of the day.
Can I eat the normal food that my
family eats? Of course. What good is a diet that makes you
eat different food than the rest of your family or friends? The whole
idea is for you to lose weight and maintain that slimmer you forever.
If you are going to stay slim forever, then you have to learn the
habits of how to eat regular food.
Do I have to keep taking the
pills in order to maintain my weight? No, this program is
designed to teach you how to eat so that you lose the weight and
develop eating habits that will help you keep the weight off forever.
The diet pills simply help you lose weight faster by limiting the
number of calories you absorb and help raise your metabolism while you
learn how to eat your normal foods in a better way. This is where most
diet programs fail. They make you change everything that is out of your
comfort zone, then expect you to keep the weight off after you stop
their program. With the Active 8 Better Health Better Life Diet
Plan, you learn how to eat with your normal foods and routine.
Is there any type of group
support? Yes, we want to help you succeed! You may start
your own support group under the guidelines of the program or visit our

Are there any side effects from
the supplements? No. Unlike a few of the diet kits that have
recently come on the market, there are no known side effects from the
Are there any stimulants in any of
the supplements? No. Unlike most of the diet products on the
market today, there is no caffeine or guarana in any of the products.
Why are these protein shakes
better than the ones I see in the grocery store? These
protein drinks are specially designed to keep your blood sugars from
spiking when being digested because they contain very little
carbohydrates in the formula. The shakes are comprised of protein in
order to help your insulin levels stay on an even keel and not make you
hungry in a short period of time like shakes with carbs in them will do.
I'm not overly fond of the protein
shakes. Is there a way to make them taste better? Yes. Some
folks love the shakes, others do not - everyone's different in what
they like! First of all, make sure that when you make the protein
shakes, that you use the coldest water possible. You can also
substitute non-fat milk for water or you can add a 1/8 tsp of an
extract flavoring such as vanilla, banana, hazelnut, strawberry, etc.
Why is this diet plan better than
other ones I see on the market? There are several answers to
this question. This diet plan has been put together based on the
scientific premise to keep blood sugar and insulin levels down as low
as possible since high levels of these in your body tend to convert
carbohydrates and sugars into fat and make you gain weight.
The supplements that work together are completely
natural, safe and don't contain ingredients or stimulants that can be
harmful to the human body like so many other products on the market. (Read
FDA's latest diet pill warning:
http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/NEWS/2008/NEW01933.html). It also
doesn't require you to make major modifications in your current
lifestyle in order to achieve success.
It doesn't mean the pounds will miraculously disappear
with no work on your part, but the supplements and shakes make it much
easier to stick to the diet plan without feeling like you are starving
to death. You are not hungry all the time like with what you get with
so many fad diets you see on the market today.
Is there anyone who should not be
on this diet? Yes. This program should not be used by
persons with serious liver or kidney disease.
What do the supplements do?
is a complete explanation at
But the short explanation is:
All the supplements are manufactured in American FDA certified labs of
the highest standards and quality. They are guaranteed safe and
- Blocks carbohydrate absorption
- Increases energy
- Lowers sugar absorption
- Helps block fat absorption
- Promotes the burning of stores fat in the body
- Helps control hunger and cravings
Is the diet guaranteed?
Yes. If you follow the guidelines of the program, you will lose weight
or your money back! Note that you will not lose your 20 pounds in the
first week of the diet. This is not a hyped up weight loss plan that
you see on TV claiming miracle pounds being lost overnight. It does
take time and persistence, but when you lose the weight, it will have
been worth it!
How can I get my money back if I
do not lose weight? If you have followed the program
faithfully for several weeks and do not see results, all you have to do
is return the unused portion for a full refund. No questions asked!
