The Beta Switch Review

Hi there, I'm Kate and I want to share with you what The Beta Switch Program was able to do for me.

My personal weight loss journey started 2 years ago, after I separated from my husband of 12 years. I wasn't always overweight, but during my marriage I developed a bad habit. Every time I was getting grief from my children or my husband I resorted to food to comfort myself. Gradually the weight started to creep up and before I knew it I was 30 pounds overweight. Believe me when I tell you that I had tried to lose weight. Over the years I had followed many different diet plans and workout programs, but I failed every time. I simply didn’t have the energy or the determination to achieve any long term results. I think I was depressed.

So, here I was a single mom in my 30’s and 30 pounds overweight. I hated even looking in the mirror anymore. I could never have imagined that my life would turn out like that. The first few weeks after the separation were a nightmare, but gradually I started pulling myself together.

A few months after the divorce, I decided I was going to change my life for good. I joined an online forum and found many other women that were in a similar situation as me. I was so glad that I had discovered such a supportive online community. It was exactly what I needed at the time. One day I came across a female member that reminded me of myself. She was around my age and had also recently divorced. The only difference was that she was 50 pounds overweight. She was always starting a new diet only to fall of the wagon and start all over again.

One day she was talking about yet another diet she had found and how excited she was. I’m sorry to say, but I expected her to fail. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t want her to fail, I just believed that the cycle would repeat itself. To be fair losing 50 pounds is an uphill battle and it’s very easy to get discouraged somewhere down the line and throw off the towel. But, this time it was different. She was making very good progress with this new diet system, so I decided to look into it more closely. It was called The Beta Switch Diet. I started doing some research online about this program, but initially I was skeptical. It seemed too good to be true. The last thing I needed was to spend more money for yet another diet plan that wasn’t going to work for me.

What Is The Beta Switch

The Beta Switch is the 12-week diet and exercise system created by Sue Heinze.
Sue is a Body Transformation specialist who has appeared on national and international television. She has been a contributor to many other publications, like Shape Magazine, Women’s Health and Fitness Magazine and Women’s Weekly. Sue Heinze has also competed in natural figure competitions at State and National level and has coached more than 30 winners of Australian National Body Transformation Championship.

The name refers to switching-off Alpha (fat-storing receptors) and switching-on Beta (fat-burning receptors). The female body has 9 times more Alpha than Beta receptors. This explains why it’s so difficult from women to burn fat from certain areas, like the lower body. Every time a Beta receptor tries to release fat, it has to fight 9 Alpha receptors that try to store fat back in. This is especially true for female trouble spots like buttocks and thighs. The course is designed to help your body stimulate its beta receptors and allow fat burning in those problematic areas.

My experience with the program

The beta switch diet consists of 3 different days: Cleanse/Detox Days, Sculpt/Burn Days and Splurge Days. The Splurge Day are designed to prevent your metabolic rate from becoming too low, by keeping your thyroid and leptin levels high.

I started my day with the delicious lemon maple smoothie that gave me so much energy and kept me motivated. I wasn’t feeling hungry, because I was eating every 3 hours.

The exercise program was something I was kind of dreading, but actually it was not that hard. Eating the right types of food gave me all the necessary energy to exercise. Of course it was not a walk in the park, but the weight was melting off of me and that’s why I kept going. By the end of the 12 week program, I had lost a total of 32lbs. My energy levels were sky high, I felt absolutely amazing.

What I Didn’t Like About The Beta Switch 

I didn’t really understand how this program specifically activates the beta receptors. Ok these receptors are responsible for breaking down fat, but there is no adequate explanation inside the book about the mechanism behind beta receptor activation. My theory is that this system works, because it reduces estrogen dominance (but, I’m not a doctor, so take this with a grain of salt).

What I Liked About The Beta Switch 

I didn’t have to eat like a bird to lose weight. I rarely felt hungry, because I was eating plenty of food.
I’ve formed many long-term healthy habits and my desire to binge went away completely.

I truly believe that this is the best diet for any woman that has been “blessed” with a pear shaped body. I am convinced that if I had lost weight with any other diet program out there, my upper body would have become very skinny and I would still have lots of stubborn fat in my lower body. I know that spot reduction is supposed to be a myth, but the pattern of fat accumulation is influenced by hormones and this program does seem to help you achieve hormonal balance.

Where I am Now

Since I lost weight, I feel so much better. I’m not so self-conscious anymore and I just have a lot more energy. Men notice me more and people treat me better (sad, but true). But, the most important thing for me is the feeling of pride. I’m proud for turning my life around. I’m proud of finally becoming the best possible version of myself.

This program has helped many other women achieve their weight loss goals. If you want to read their testimonials, visit the official beta switch website.
