As with most weight loss programs there are some additional items which have been created as optional extras to the program. Purchasing the Fat Loss Factor gives you the opportunity to buy any of these additional items if you feel that they would make your weight loss journey easier. It's completely optional as Fat Loss Factor is fully comprehensive, but some people find that the extra help is invaluable.
The first companion product is Breakthrough Coaching: this is a video course which consists of a set of 24 videos in which Dr Charles and his assistant Lori explain and demonstrate in more detail every aspect of the Fat Loss Factor program. There are videos on the different aspects of the diet, introductions to exercise and exercise equipment, information about weight loss plateaus and the mindset for success.
These are informally filmed in Charles and Lori's kitchen and the sound quality is not perfect but they are easy to watch. If you prefer your information in video form rather than a book, then this option could be for you.
Home Edition: Accelerator Package
The second one is called Fat Loss Factor Home Edition: Accelerator Package. This add-on addresses the fact that our busy lives can make it difficult to lose weight for a number of different reasons. These components are designed to help us solve these problems, ensure that weight loss fits easily into our lives and that we don't get stuck on the dreaded weight loss plateau. There are a number of different items in this product including:
- A set of workouts which can be done at home without access to a gym
- More enhanced and diverse meal plans (with recipes) to overcome any boredom of eating the same things over and over again
- A special plan for losing post pregnancy weight
- A guide to getting Firm Flat Abs
- eBook – 11 Simple Steps to Positive Self Confidence
- An eBook on Stress Management
- Advanced Detox diet book
- The Ultimate Grilling Guide
- and The Busy Women's Workout Book
All of these are delivered in pdf eBook form.
No Think Diet
The third companion product is called No Think Diet and consists of an exclusive membership site which contains software which is designed to take the effort out of planning meals or workouts. The software will produce daily meal plans and workouts for you up to 2 weeks in advance.
Also included on the site are a number of weight loss tools to track your progress, calculate your metabolic rate, % body fat and also to calculate how many calories you should be eating in order to lose weight according to your specific metabolic rate.
Once again the workout program is not for me, but I'm sure most guys would enjoy it.
The meal planner is quite good, meals are available in 4 different categories: Healthy American, Vegetarian, Diabetic and Paleo/Gluten Free and if you don't like the meal plan the software chooses for you, you can customize it in a variety of ways and remove ingredients that you don't like. The software will also print out a grocery list for you to take to the store.
At the time of writing the nutritional values are not included with the recipes in the same way that they are in the recipe books in the main program, so I haven't been able to check if the calorie counts on the generated meal plans match up with how many calories you should be eating. If they do match up, then the software will be a godsend for anyone trying to lose weight who is short of time. However, until I could confirm this, I personally would not buy this particular add-on product.
These companion products are completely optional, you can choose not to buy by simply clicking the No Thanks link in small writing at the bottom of the page. They are also all backed by the same 60 day money back guarantee if you want to check them out for yourself.
