When I started the Rapid Fat Loss plan, back in May, I told you I wasn't going to review the plan until after I had completed a round and seen what kind of rebound effect there was afterwards.
I began RFL on May 12.
I finished RFL on June 20th.
7 days after completing RFL.
So in total, I maintained a 15 pound weight loss after 5 weeks of hardcore dieting. The inches that were gone fluctuated slightly but still dropped.
The first week off has not been easy. It's tough to go from 600 calories a day to 1800 without feeling rather stuffed. My stomach has also really rebelled at some of the carbs, especially breads. My calories are not 100% up to maintenance levels yet but I'm getting closer all the time.
My review: This is the toughest diet I have ever been on. It absolutely works IF YOU FOLLOW IT METICULOUSLY. Is it worth the $50 price tag? Absolutely. What would you pay to lose 15 pounds in a little over a month? After my two week break am I going to do it again? Probably. It's hard to commit to such a drastic plan but I am getting so close to my final goal, I would love to see all the weight fall off in a hurry.

I strongly suggest this plan if you are determined to take off some weight that has been stubbornly hanging on. It's excellent to jump start a more moderate weight loss plan, to take off those stubborn last few pounds, or to burst through a plateau. It is also a good plan for people with insulin resistance issues and PCOS.
