I purchased the Dr. Charles Livingston Fat Factor Loss program but feel his video did not explain there would be fasting involved and I would not have purchased the program if I had know fasting was involved.  I was told in the video that he would personally email you yet I sent several emails and received no response. 

He also said that it was a money back guarantee yet I recieved no response from my email's requesting my money back and I sent a certified letter requesting my money back and it was return to me unopened.  I feel this website is a ripoff since I am now have paid $47.00 for nothing and was told I could get my money back and a response from the email and I have received nothing for my $47.00.

Fat Loss Factor Does Work

AUTHOR: Katrina - ()

DR. Charles program does work if you follow his diet plan. He shows you how to lose 10 pounds in a week. A lot of consumer complaints come from either buying a knock-off or boot leg product. And if you follow a fake, you will get no results. A lot of real consumers get real results from following the guidelines of the Fat Loss Factor. I suggest to future consumers that you search for honest reviews before buying the product. The reviews I read before buying the product does tell you that you will be fasting. Another suggestion would be to look at YouTube videos and get real reviews from actual consumers like this one

Real Fat Loss Factor Review

AUTHOR: AusCara - ()

Unfortunately, all the 'reviews' that are found seems to be from people trying to push the product. Most of them haven't even bought it, but are simply ripping off some other review from someone that also haven't bought it.

I did buy this product from the official website, about 3 months ago. It is a good product, especially given the price. The manual is well written, and cross-referenced with peer reviewed articles.

The exercises are varied, and are all shown online at the members area.

I finished the whole program and did lose weight and.

I have posted some pictures and a short review at my blog: Fat Loss Factor Review

Just a quick write up, if you have any questions, feel free to ask me at my website.

Only One Workout System is Worth Purchasing

AUTHOR: dr. Charles livingston - ()

This is ridiculous Fat Loss Factor has brought me no luck at all and I have emailed and tried to communicate with Dr. Livingston Over and Over again. There is ONLY 1 WORKOUT SYSTEM THAT HAS BEEN PROVEN TO WORK 

It is called fat loss bands and was created by a real fitness guru who trains & cares about his clients. 

For whatever reason a no frills approach and straight to the point this is how it works seems to have worked best for me. 


Good luck and Dr. Livingston you should probably start using fat loss bands your getting a little chunky yourself.

AUTHOR: A Smith - ()

I have read lots of different reports on the Fat Loss Factor and I have to say the vast majority of people that have use the program have had amazing results. You just have to follow the program and it will work. I know it works because I have used it and still follow the program. I have emailed Dr Charles Livingston several times and have always received a prompt reply. If you want to learn more about the Fat Loss Factor then you can visit and read the success stories there. Hope this helps. From a satisfied follower of the Fat Loss Factor program.

It Works!

AUTHOR: A Smith - ()

I agree - The Fat Loss Factor does work. I am a consumer and have used the program to personally lose half a stone. If you have any doubts then you need to do a simple search - the ebook has over 125,000 Facebook fans and it's one of the best selling ebooks in relation to fat burning that is available. Yes you need to put in a little effort but you do with any weight loss program. If you purchase a book that states you can lose 50 pounds in a week doing no exercise then you are being very naive. The Fat Loss Factor is a great system which I have personally used. You can read more at

Are you kidding me?

AUTHOR: Don - ()

I am in no way affiliated with this company, I just happened to watch the video in question a few minutes ago. If you didn't see the "5 foods to avoid" question answered fully, then what you have to do is the common sense thing, watch the whole video! Duh! I can testify that all 5 foods to avoid were presented in the video. What did you expect? That was the hook to pull you in, they're not going to tell you all 5 until you have watched the whole video that they want you to watch! Again, common sense, they're selling something!

If you can't close the video without using the task manager then your doing something wrong and/or your computer isn't set up properly. If you have pop ups all the time, here is what to do: Turn on the pop up blocker! Again Duh! I had no problems what so ever ending the video. In fact I had no problem stopping or pausing the video, every single time I tried, in the beginning, the end or in the middle just by clicking on the video itself. "Click" - done. It's called a flash video player, not unknown technology, if you right click in the middle of the video screen you can see this for yourself. You don't have to be a hacker to figure this out.  Please people, COMMON SENSE!

Following Through

AUTHOR: Follow through - ()

I am in no way affiliated with fat loss factor, I am a customer voicing my opinion.

First off, most of the complainers are the ones who don't follow through with things. "The fat loss factor simply does not work if you are allergic to foods they tell you to eat"

My reply: That is absolutely absurd, it's people like you who are too lazy to take 5 minutes to find an alternative, I highly doubt you follow through with anything.

Comment #2 sends you to some random site, that isn't instead they use shady tactics anre are trying to make a quick buck by sending you to an affiliate site: ""

I had to vent a little because I'm tired of people who complain on the smallest of things, I would be willing to be money these are the people sitting at home with a dead end job eating potato chips watching their favorite reality show.

The fat loss factor simply does not work if you are allergic to foods they tell you to eat. I too am waiting for my refund of the product.

how to get your money back

AUTHOR: aprilp03 - (United States of America)

I bought the Fat Loss Factor and immediately had buyer's remorse. I googled how to cancel and found a page from Fat Loss Factor that said to email I had saved all of the email reciets, which is what I forward to them when I told them I wanted to cancel . I got all of my money back and had no problems at all. I also got to keep everything just like the said. This is not a scam and if you do it just like they say you will get your money back.

Warning about their online adv

AUTHOR: BeemerBiker - (United States of America)

If you select the advertisement and play the video,  it is difficult to stop. If you close the advertisement window they raise the audio up higher and offer to send the stuff at a discount.  They then remove the dialog box [X] which makes it impossible to close the window.  if this happens one must bring up a task manager and cancel any tasks with the name "weight loss factor".   Window shows about 3 tasks with that name so all must be canceled to stop the ad.

The button I clicked on was "5 foods not to eat".  They did not answer that question, even after about 4 minutes of watching the video the question was not answered.   If they lie one something as simple as this (providing names of 5 foods), what am I to believe about their wieght lost factor program.

If they wont let you close the window what does that tell you about their ethics?
