The FAST Diet / Company charges $27/week to send out mass emails and answer questions. After failure, they expect 6 months payment to rejoin

First, let me start out by describing what this program actually is. You will go in for an orientation with his guy (or attend it on phone if you don't live in Omaha). He will follow that orientation with getting you used to the rules of the program, which are basic guidelines saying that you must stay within your calorie range (among a couple other things like water and fiber) and exercise each day for 30-60 minutes.

You will email in your numbers to Tony each night, and receive a (normally) mass-produced email in the morning, either good or bad depending on whether you claim to have known the numbers exactly, whether you did your exercise, and whether you were within your range. If so, you'll get the mass-produced "good" email of the day. If not, you'll hear the mass-produced "bad" email of the day telling why it's important to stay within your range, exercise, etc.

I will admit the program worked for me for a long time. It might work for you, too. I lost over 110 pounds at my very lowest, but due to living out of town for 6 months and the stressful situation that put me through, I was never able to gain my momentum back even after I came back to Omaha, and I asked my aunt (who was paying for me) to stop because I just didn't have the momentum anymore.

Some time later, I have gained all my weight back plus some and I wanted to give this program another shot (even though what Tony actually does is not worth $27). What they all told me is that those who quit and come back tend to not do as well as they did the first time order to show commitment, they want 6 months paid in advance for those returning to the program.

I am a broke college student, and again my aunt was going to pay for me until I found employment because I can't even pay my own rent right now. Tony and his team won't budge on this particular issue and I'll be honest, I don't even want to join any more. This proves to me that he doesn't care about the person involved, and he just wants to ensure he gets paid for that 6 months in case the person would otherwise decide to quit before those 6 months are up.

Also, he lets you determine your own weight loss goal, and the way that he does it, it is probably that you will select a goal 10 pounds or so under what is actually realistic, making it take many more months to complete (and thus getting paid for those months).

If you can stick with it, I will say that the momentum might carry you through. Maybe this program is for you. But don't think he's doing it because he wants to help people as he claims. Tony goes on all these vacations throughout the year, guess what, we're funding him because it costs him practically nothing to run this business.
