Frequently Asked Questions


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 related to 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 much 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 the program.

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 friends.

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. You 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 want.

Are there guidelines to the plan? Absolutely, you 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 online weight loss support center by clicking here or copy/paste this link: http://www.myactive8.com/Group/active8help.htm  (your kit will contain this information too). You can also contact us for more information by emailing info@active8products.com  or call 1-800-465-4411 for more information.

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 supplements.

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 the 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?  There is a complete explanation at http://www.myactive8.com/cart/WL/WL_ingredients.htm.

But the short explanation is:

  • 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
All the supplements are manufactured in American FDA certified labs of the highest standards and quality. They are guaranteed safe and effective.

Is the diet guaranteed? Yes. If you follow the guidelines of the program and for some reason have trouble with the supplements, you can get a refund. Since it is difficult for us to monitor as to whether you are following the program as outlined and taking the supplements correctly, we ask that you be fair in requesting a refund based on lack of weight loss. Note that you will not lose your 20 pounds in the first week of the diet. Dr. Steelman has said that you should lose an average of 1-2 pounds a week. 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!
