Daves Newbie 1 Posts 1/2/2014 12:08:14 PM Waste of money. Supplements provide no value. "Couselors" are glorified telemarketers. Follow the Canada Food Guide, get regular exercise and don't be fooled into forking over big$$. the ferg Newbie 1 Posts 10/21/2013 9:33:46 AM Word to the Wise: BLOG As a former HM employee..Do NOT fall for this hoax. No one is properly trained in anything or qualified to do anything than push sales making the company millions of dollars on people that are struggling with a weight issue. After a very short period I questioned it all. I thought I could help people by educating them on healthy eating. Not over priced fees and all the pills that are not proven to do anything. Other than caffeine to give you a ""boost""..Seriously..burn your money if you have it to give away. Other than that, stay away from that weak moment. They are only in for the CASH...they do not care about anyone or you on any level. I'm not a disgruntled employee. I just saw major issues in the company polices and quit after my ""training"".. Pelletier89 Newbie 1 Posts 2/24/2013 12:08:37 PM It is crazy expensive! Now, they want to just take the full $300 from your account at the beginning of the month. So , anyone signing up take that into consideration! Did anyone sign up around the time of "every pound lost you get $10.00 back??" My fiancι and I signed up when that promotion was running and it well over with. We haven't seen the money sent to us in 5-6 months. We ask them all the time and they say " well, it's being processed. Or we sent it two weeks ago." Really, cause I haven't seen it yet. Too expensive, sometimes snotty as eff attitudes and oh WHERE's my $10 for every pound I lost!!! neartheocean Newbie 1 Posts 12/29/2012 12:59:37 PM so did I half price then told auto debit ever week for shakes and bars the pills they give are contraindicated for the meds doctor prescribed and WOW a freee scale and thermoss will continue and excersise when I can as I clean for a living and find that is plenty of exercise during winter in summer I will walk near the ocean but on my schedule not thiers do not bliev any of them aare llicensed dieticians and poor 'CHOACHES' oh well an expensive lesson wish I had surfed the INTERNET FIRST !!! Aj Newbie 1 Posts 9/27/2012 7:07:31 PM Just got ripped by HM, $800 in 4 weeks for basically nothing, I know I could talk about Ethics and the lack of in length about this company. I realized again that a sure way to loose weight and keeping the ideal is eating sensibily and exersize. The pills appear to help metabolize fats however they are probably not necessary if you follow the Canada food guide and the portion size. Always difficult in the first 1-2 weeks however the hunger subsides eventually. Buyers beware with HM, do your research, unfortunately when I realize I was being ripped, I started looking around the reviews...:-( cyncity Newbie 1 Posts 9/20/2012 5:37:05 AM I joined HM about 7 weeks ago. It cost me $800.00 for an initial fee plus $90 a week for supplements and an additional $35 a month for an extra supplement. I've already lost 14 pounds but have come into a financial situation where i am unable to continue my weekly purchase. The result of that is i am no longer allowed to go to a HM centre for my weigh-ins...after two weeks of not buying the weekly supplements i go on an inactive list and two weeks after that if my financial situation improves and can go back to buying the weekly supplements it will cost me $99 to go back. I paid $800 for a year of support and this is what i get? No way...what a waste of money. It was good at first because i didn't have the will to do it on my own...now i have the tools and will to prove to HM that i can do this without them. jyaky123 Newbie 1 Posts 5/23/2012 11:32:59 PM Hello, Acknowledgment to this one of the forum site.

Now I had read this board first so I signed up at Christmas for half price and I only took their pills for the first two weeks. Was it easy...NO did it work yes!! I am finding that my consultant is starting to push the pills on me saying I need them to keep losing ( I know the pills only work because we think they do). I am almost ready to walk away from HM even though I need to lose 60 more. I find I am being bullied about the pills. I plan is great and the food advice is great but I personally feel the pills are a scam, a very expensive scam. If I had taken the pills I would have been out around $1500 by now!! Really look at your goals and know that one week of pills will run you at least $50 but more likely $70 ItsCalledControl Newbie 1 Posts 10/27/2011 8:04:38 PM I joined Herbal Magic in May 2006 and lost a total of 74 pounds. We are now in 2011 and I have still kept the weight off. So you obviously didn't follow it probably. PaIgE Newbie 1 Posts 10/19/2011 4:43:29 PM I believe in the program, I believe in the products! I "BELIEVE" that the program and products are too expensive for what they are! The employees are pushed to make the sale. If they are not performing, they get into trouble. It is not enough that a customer will have to purchase their essential weekly product, which btw should be purchased on the monday each week via preauth, but each customer should be taking a few so called optional products. If you are getting your weekly product on monday by credit card, then you won't notice when the health coach is pushing products at you, and that is what they do, each visit you will be pitched a product to enhance your weight loss... IT IS A ROTTEN WAY TO FEEL... TEETEE Newbie 1 Posts 7/4/2011 1:07:19 PM I too got sucked in with this company they totally scammed me. Although I did lost a bunch of weight and I did see inch loss the money you spend is first off unbelievable. I felt like a drug addicted user and if I continue would need an intervention!! I said I went to the movies in passing conversation and immediately they jumped on me saying oh that popcorn is very bad and continued to throw that at me, see you shouldn't have eaten that popcorn. Guess what I have never eaten the popcorn just the smell makes me ill. They said I was drinking coke constantly whenever the weight would come up a little, I asked if I could drink a can of coke now and again and again they used that to their advantage. Eventually I got tired of defending myself, I thought they were supposed to work with the individual and help them through this process with guidance and understanding. This was not the case. I eventually told them I refuse to come in 3x a week I don't have time for that, and dropped it to 2x again you really need to come in so we can monitor your weight loss. I quit told them never to bother me that the whole thing was nothing but a scam....I wonder if they get commission on each weigh in. buttercup640 Newbie 1 Posts 6/25/2011 6:08:52 AM I have now been on Herbal Magic for 2 weeks and I have lost almost 15 lbs. I have always been a bigger girl and it has never really bothered me until I went to try on wedding dresses and I fit into a size 22 dress. I knew I had to do something and fast. Yes it is expensive, $1300 is alot of money when you are trying to pay for a wedding, but it was somthing I wanted to do for my self. I will say it has been really hard to stick to the diet.. I went from eating whatever whenever I wanted to eating healthy, but I think its worth it. Thats the bottom line... if you think its worth it..then you will do it. I think Herbal Magic is the help I needed to get started and I am thankful for them. mukey Newbie 1 Posts 1/27/2011 1:21:56 PM I had a consult with HM yesterday and I was skeptical to begin with. I was greeted by this greasy, car salesman looking guy named Rob. He told me that I probably gain weight during "that time of the month" so that's why my weight was so high that day. Who says that!!? After I was quoted $1300 for my "program" I told him it was too expensive and I got up to leave. He told me about the "retail option" where you buy their drugs and do the program on your own. That would have cost me $120/month. Instead, for $120, I signed up with a personal trainer for 3 training sessions and one nutrition counselling session and I'm meeting her next week. Don't waste your money. Don't become a victim of Herbal Magic! rich88 Newbie 2 Posts 1/9/2011 3:15:49 AM My wife went on herbal magic plan. 3 months, 2 thousand dollars. They restricted her diet and gave her a ton of pills. Funny thing is the pills all look the same but in different bottles. Well, I went on the restricted diet they put her on, only didn't take the pills, and ended up losing 20 pounds more than her. Hmmmmm, id say flags up! For those who want to lose weight, just cut out a few things you eat. Simple, and, after you get used to it, quite painless. I went from 264 to 210 in 3 months just by cutting out bread, junk food, anything with soy, and anything processed. Not so hard! P.S. Dont get carried away with the salt either!! rich88 Newbie 2 Posts 1/9/2011 3:15:49 AM My wife went on herbal magic plan. 3 months, 2 thousand dollars.

I am sorry to hear that you feel scammed, unfortunately its easy for scams for expensive weightloss materials to prosper. I would guess it comes from people being willing to prey on people that maybe in a place of vulnerability. I would recommend not buying any program unless they have a money back gurantee. I recently brought and excercise program from and not only did I get the program (which included an easy to follow nutrition plan that would get me through the workouts for the whole program) but I also got internet support teambeachbody was commited to making me the best me and I am happy with the purchase and all of their products come with a money back gurantee
Alison Newbie 1 Posts 12/3/2010 5:29:04 PM Hi, Sorry to hear that some of you didn't like herbal magic i've used it and lost 34 lbs in 2 and half month but recently put on the weight due to depression and stress, I never paid anything for herbal magic i have the diet plan and never used any of their vitamins i just go to the health food store and get the vitamins or gnc. I tried the atkins diet and it sucked so bad i just didn't like it to me herbal magic allowed you to eat more. chetti Newbie 1 Posts 11/15/2010 2:35:53 PM My beef with HM is that since 2006- I have lost a significant amount of weight, but it creeps back on quickly when I leave the program, the only fix seems to be take more pills! At one time, I was taking 4 diff pills, and not happy with the expense and results, its a struggle every day to keep weight off, and usually when I ask them to put me on stabilization for a while, since my weight is not moving, they never do, I just want to learn to stay at a certain weight, then move on to losing more, I thinks thats really important on maintaining.l get the old "wait another week' to keep me paying for these programs. I am not a pill popper, and don't want to continue with them, I won't even mention how much I have spent but its in the thousands + Jeves Newbie 1 Posts 11/10/2010 5:15:04 AM Since when is telling people if they follow a specific food guide, take supplements and listen to the instructions of your personal health coach a scam? Sounds to me like if the program didn't work you didn't follow it. I lost 40 pounds with Herbal Magic. It wasn't always easy to be without the foods I loved but then I'd go in to my centre and see the fruits of my labour. There is not a weight loss program out there that's going to work if you aren't 100% commited. So before you choose to post all your negative comments for the world to see maybe take a look at the amount of effort you put into the program. I bet its not as much as you think it is. Christina Newbie 1 Posts 11/8/2010 10:43:49 AM It is absolutely crazy expensive and could all probably be accomplished in many other methods. However I spent so much effort trying to eat properly and work out regularly and was seeing no results. In the past 4 months I have lost over 35 lbs, my stomach issues and diarrea have completely cleared up (discovered I was lactose intolerant) and feel this was a better gift to myself than another vacation. I am positive you could buy these supplements somewhere else much cheaper but I really appreciate the support, regular weigh ins and general encouragement. I have felt no ill effects from the supplements though I don't feel like I have more energy either. I agree it is restrictive and makes eating out, very very challenging. It makes you realize how crappy most of the convenient foods are. I miss cake, I miss soy sauce and sushi, I miss chocolate and cookies but I like being able to fit back into my size 8's. Everything is a trade off.
