The Venus Factor Advises You That Choosing To Lose Bodyweight Faster Than The System Defines Can Be Unhealthy For Your Body.
Hello ladies. Thanks for checking out this overview of the Venus Factor weight loss system.
The above headline isn’t just for show, it is the truth. It is totally possible to lose weight faster that the system reveals to you, if you want to. (Notice that I said weight and not fat). However, there is an formula that limits the maximum amount of fat that can be lost from the body in a set amount of time. I liken it to the fact that water won’t get any hotter that 100° celcius. It is finite.
If you choose to eat less calories than the diet suggests, then you would lose fat from other vital body parts such as the muscles, liver and the blood, and that would not be healthy….
The other problem with shedding too many pound too quickly is that rebound fat gains will more than likely happen. In other words, you will end up heavier than you were before. This weight loss product goes into detail about why this will happen.
What Is In The Venus Factor System ?

The V. Factor is an online bodyweight loss program for women that contains “How To” videos, a forum, personal blogs, a weight progress tracker and fact-finding software. Most of the nutritional information, diets and workout manual come in the form of downloadable pdf files (ebooks). The interface takes a few minutes to get used to but is pretty straightforward to get to grips with.
You can go straight to the video presentation page here www.venusfactor.com.
The sales presentation page promises to :
- Dramatically increase female metabolism.
- Deliver fast, long term bodyfat loss results without any plateaus.
- Prevent any food cravings.
- Increase energy and vitality.
Does the product deliver on its promises?
First things first, I am a guy so the V. Factor will be of no use to me because 1. It is designed to synchronize with women’s bodies, and 2. I keep myself in trim.
I did buy the program so that I could complete as an honest assessment as I can. The way that I can do this is bring together some women’s experiences with it and list a few of them below. These experiences are from the forum and personal blogs that are included on V. Factor. Obviously you will more than likely have checked many recommendations and endorsements whilst exploring the internet.

Ok so today is Day 1 of Week 2, I finally made it! In the first week I lost 6 lbs. and 1 in. off of my waist!! I am very excited about this even though I still have a long road to travel. This past week was definitely a rollercoaster ride, I had some trouble the day before and after my maintenance day but I never went over my daily calorie intake!!! Not sure if I how I’m going to handle Week 3 & 4 once I start going higher in how much I eat it’s almost like I can’t control myself!

I started week 5 this week and decided to take some progress pictures (which I still can’t seem to figure out how to upload on here!) but, I am so amazed at the progress I see so far. It’s hard to tell when you look in the mirror every day but when you see where you started and where you are the change is amazing!! My daughter looked at the pics and couldn’t believe that her mom had changed so much already! Thanks Venus!!

So feeling really pumped, lost 2.5 kilos and 5 cm off my waist so to translate about 5 pounds and 2 inches. Absoulutely stoked as I have never had that kind of sucess on any other program. I know there are quite a few of you out there who are also due to weigh in today, can’t wait to hear how you all went!
Week 9 – If not NOW, then WHEN
by Lady 9 09-26-2013 at 03:19 PM (64 Views)
I can’t believe I am almost through week 9. I have been reading some of the blogs here, and I see a theme of regretting not getting started sooner and some discouragement about the road ahead. Although I am on Week 9 of Venus, I got back on the fitness bandwagon at the end of May. I, too was discouraged that it was almost summer, and I was not in good shape. My summer clothes and bikini were not going to fit. But, as I thought about, I realized that there was really no downside to being in better shape by Labor Day (September). The cool thing was that even by August, I was looking and feeling so much better.
When I look at my progress now, I realized that it is a gift from the past me. That girl in May that decided that now was the time.
There are thousands of blog entries so I can’t list them all here. The general feeling I get is that in the first couple of weeks, the fat falls off pretty rapidly and then it seems to plateau out. This is where a lot of women get discouraged slightly and begin to doubt what they are doing. However, those women that stay with the program see results over the long term.
What I did see with a lot of the women that seemed to be having trouble dropping those pounds or hitting a sticking point, was that they were asking lots of questions that were in the already dealt with in either the videos or the ebooks. In other words, they hadn’t read all of the information correctly, or they hadn’t read it at all. This fat loss program should really be thoroughly understood before it is embarked upon.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
The whole concept of this women’s fat reduction system is based around how women’s bodies react with leptin. Leptin is a protein hormone that occurs in both men and women. This protein has been found to control the body’s capacity to burn fat. If there is a high level of leptin in the body, it will speed up the metabolic rate which in turn will burn off excess fat. If the level of the hormone in the body is low, then the metabolic rate slows down and the body will store up fat. Unfortunately, women’s bodies have a resistance to leptin, so although they have around twice as much of it as men have, (a good thing), they can’t utilise it as well as men, meaning they find it harder to lose bodyweight, (a bad thing).
The Venus Factor has developed a diet that helps with women’s resistance to leptin which speeds up the metabolism meaning the body burns the fat on a consistent basis leading to more loss of fat.
What is the cost? How can this be paid?
The cost of the program is $47.00 US. This can be paid by Visa, Mastercard, Diners Club, American Express, Discover, JCB and Paypal. This is a one time payment but there are other upsells that are offered to you when you buy the diet program. It isn’t necessary to buy these if you don’t want to. They are designed to enhance the program. You will get emails trying to sell these but you can unsubscribe if you don’t want the emails.
How easy is it to use?
The product interface is very simple to use. Once you have spent 10 minutes or so checking out what is on offer, it is pretty basic. There are plenty of videos to help you out and there is also a downloadable manual that explains things in detail too.
The ebooks are well written and can be easily understood. You don’t have to be an expert to understand everything as it is written for a novice, however the part which describes how leptin works in the body may need to be read a few times, very interesting though. The “12 week weight loss plan” ebook has 70 meal plans for different calorie deficits of 1000 to 1700. The V. F. workout manual is made up of 36 workouts, that’s 3 workouts per week over a period of 12 weeks. To go hand in hand with the workout manual and to demonstrate the exercises are about 180 videos that cover all areas of the body.
How long would it take to get results?
Well, this is a very subjective question. Following on from what I discussed previously, the shedding of pounds can occur almost immediately and carry on consistently until the desired result is achieved. Some women will start off slow and pick up later on. Some won’t lose any fat at all. There are many reasons why results differ so much. It may be that the course hasn’t been followed closely, it could be genetics or an illness or possibly some other reason. From what I have read, most women see a benefit during the 12 week plan. Everyone is different and will experience a different result and so one size doesn’t fit all, so to speak.
The Good, the bad, the Ugly (Summary).
The V. F. is unique in the way that the diet is planned because it counters the leptin resistance that women “suffer”. I think that it will help a great number of women achieve their dream to get to their ideal weight. Some may take longer than others to get there. The key is to want to do it and do what the program says. It will work for the majority of women BUT the work has to be put in and there has to be belief that it will work. There is a 60 day guarantee so there is an 8 week window to see if it is working and if it isn’t, you will get a full refund, plus it is less expensive than maybe one or two sessions with a personal trainer. The support network from thousands of other women with the forum and blogs is a great advantage as there is a real community feel about it. It is well written and easy to follow and doesn’t seem like it has been thrown together at the last minute.
