Lost 9kg in 12 weeks
I did Ashy Bines meal plan and lost 9 kg in 12 weeks, and have kept it all off (currently 4 months) that was still with having 2 days off per week, holidays and drinking alcohol once every 2nd weekend. People make these things so difficult, they don't have to be!!! be realistic!!
it's not a 'diet' more so a lifestyle change, so don't constantly eat junk food, and eat food that boost your bodies, fruit veges, low calories, high protein, low sugar, no carbs after 5pm, lots of water, and don't limit yourself completely you'll just set yourself up for failure. Lastly, I brought Ashy's plans for more clean recipes and I use them daily so definitely worth the money and couldn't recommend it more!!!!
Fantastic diet plan
This is not a book! Ashy never claims it too be! It's a guideline! Set me on a great path. Easy to find guidelines and a forum to other ladies or men who share their ideas and recipes also. Ashy and the team are always there to support. Ashy never claims to be an expert however, her ideas and guidelines are well researched to fit in with today's idea of healthy eating! Read what you get before you buy or you will end up bitter and disappointed like the people above!
I have the guideline and recipes on my iPhone so when at supermarket, I have easy access to some dinner ideas.
Do Not Buy
For $70 you would expect a well presented diet program in a professionally made book. Instead you pay this ridicules amount for you receive the diet via email and you have to print it with your own ink onto your own paper. The program isn't very informative. She is not a professional doctor or dietitian. Its just a play for quick $$$ and her boyfriend is cashing up on it too. She states she never drinks alcohol and doesn't like the taste but if you go onto her own person Facebook there are photos of her intoxicated throwing down some drinks. Th...is chick is full of [censored] and she's only looking after her pocket. I wouldn't be surprised if most of the before and after shots on the diet page are all photo shopped. Expensive, unprofessional presentation, has not been prepared by a professional doctor or dietitian, not very informative
Pure stupid dieting advice
Written by the unqualified for the ones lacking common sense. There are some good facts, such as eat veggies and protein (duh) but the rest is idiocy. Lettuce is full of sugar apparently. And minimum 10L of water a day should be Ingested. Oh and her pregnant clients should take fat burning stimulants as well.... Don't buy this, just copy stuff off the sane websites she did. And that's been proven.
I feel fantastic!
Ashy Bines Clean Eating Plan is not a scam. I purchased it 3 weeks ago. Although I must admit, after you put through your details and pay, It is a little bit complicated figuring out where to find the documents to print. After you pay, all you need to do is look at the top of the page and click "member login" and type in your email and passwrod that you just created when paying for it.
Then bam- you're in and you can download the four documents down the right hand side. They appear in purple and yellow boxes. You recieve the clean eating gu...idelines, recipe book, a day in the life of ashy bines and shopping forms. Its great! In the two weeks I have completed, I've lost 10cm off my waist! And before this plan, I ate quite healthy already. It lays out all the information about what you need to eat and why... this is what has helped me so well is understanding why these foods are good for my body. I'm totaly stoked with the $69 I paid. I think good on her- shes a young woman trying to run a successful business and I understand how intense that would be for her. I think she's doing a great job for her age and experience! Knowlegable, Lifestyle Changing, Successful Weight Loss and Inspirational Initially difficult to figure out how to download- But once you understand the navigation of the website it's fine.
Ashy bines don't bother
This plan is a complete waist of money. Wouldn't even bother. No expire cue or knowledge beyond basics in food and no support. All you get is a document with her opinion in it. You could do better by searching the Internet or attending a high school home ec or PE class.
Good money making sceam
Very basic written by someone with no knowledge on nutrition
Best money I've spent on my health
I bought the Ashy Bines guidelines in August 2012 and have lost 14 kgs, the Facebook closed group is by far worth the $70, it's motivating and full if like minded people from all walks of life. Originally I thought well if skinny people can lose weight following this it works and it's true. In the past I lost weight through tony ferguson and was paying $42 a week on shakes. Now it's just food that my whole family eats, it's affordable and value for money and u can't thank them enough for teaching me its not just what you eat but how your body processes it that makes so much difference.
This book seems to be suitable for starting fires. Ashy clearly is no expert in this field, as even a kindergarten teacher with an understanding of the "food pyramid" can tell you. Are you aware that the carbohydrates found in pasta, rice, multigrain bread and some cereals are a more sustaining form of energy than the protein found in meats? Have you studied the significance of beneficial vitamins and sugars in fruit? Are you aware that too much red meat in your diet will cause bowel cancer? What is it that your protein shakes offer that my eggs don't?
Although this plan is good, it is suited for people with no knowledge of food. It does have helpful tips and does work when you stick to the plan but it does take a lot of preparation and time to work out what you will need, and what to do to make the plan work for you.
Takes to much time.
Don't waste your money
I bought the clean eating diet plan about a month ago for 70 dollars CND and it was probably the worst purchase I have ever made in my life. Everything in the plan is common sense/basic guidelines. To sum it up "eat veggies and lean meat" .. There I just saved you 70 bucks lol the recipes are okay but you really have to be committed to purchasing all the extra foods needed + it is very repetitive. Example: there are about 4 or 5 different kinds of smoothies to make but it's all the same ingredients except she switches the fruit. Basically what I'm saying is I expected a lot more in the plan other than stuff I can research on google.
Too expensive for what it includes
Definately Worth the Money Spent
OK, yes there are spelling mistakes - I just emailed her so hopefully she will fix them
There are recipes, there is a book that is about 81 pages that talks about all food types do's and dont's . It makes you think about what you want to eat, not what you are forced to eat. I see so many programs with many confused people not knowing what to substitute things they don't like with. This is a lifestyle change. It makes sense, it is eating foods that have been provided for us and just taking out the that our body cant process and we think is...
Lost 1kilo in the first week
Ashy bines is a clean eating diet teaches you about clean eating its not a starve ur self diet or milkshake diet u actually eAt well & healthy! You also have a forum with thousands of other girls on the plan & also personal trainers & dietitians online to ask questions & they are really helpfull. They have helped me so much & given me lots of advice & meal ideas. The only way your going to know is to purchase it like me & thousands of ither girls with success stories! I lost 1 kilo in the 1st week of starting it. Go figure.
You can eat 3 meals a day & you feel great.
My Log in keeps failing but they keep fixing it
I have woken up the first time in months feeling alive and refreshed! Its amaAZing that just changing your diet can change the way you feel immensly. Would recommend to anyone and is far less expensive than Light n Easy or Jenny Craig. What is even better is that it teaches you how to prepare your meals rather than having them made for you.
The food plan is great and inexpensive
Protein powders are a bit expensive but you do get 10% off
Best thing ever!
When I first started on the Ashy Bines Clean Eating plan I weighed 68kg, being a size 8-10 for most of my life at this stage I not fitting into size 12. I lost 7 kgs in 2.5-3 months, i felt great, more energetic and positive in life. This is not a quick fix diet, I put in the hard yards and trained very hard. I didn’t follow the eating guidelines to a T, I still had a latte most mornings, still ate white rice and dark chocolate. I still went out for dinner and went to the movies and ate naughty foods but stuck to the guidelines as much as I cou...ld. There is just so much hate from others saying that think this is fake but I think they are looking for someone to blame because they are not giving 100%. Also, people saying that it’s just all common sense, well if you knew this already why did you need to buy a plan? why aren’t you fit and healthy already? If you really want something you need to work for it. This has worked wonders for me and I would recommend it to anyone. Great food, you get results, access to the forum. The first plan was a little bit short but Ashy has rectified this and brought out an updated version
Not worth the money paid
This is an alright diet plan but for the money paid its not worth it. To have to go and download a pdf and not get an actual book shouldnt cost more than $10 and the lack of help is really annoying. The grammar was atrocious and the whole plan wasnt really backd by and scientific evidence other than 'google it'. It's also quite annoying that she's trying to force her beliefs on you, such as she doesnt like the taste of alcohol and neither should you and that you should never drink milk as it has no health benefits at all. I feel like she has ju...st wikipedia'd the information. That being said, if you follow the guidelines you will lose weight but for $70 its basically a rip off of general nowledge, ie. don't eat sugar, dont eat fat, drink lots of water, exercise regualrly. This definitely wasn't the right plan for me as I enjoy the occasional alcoholic drink and like to eat more than 1 piece of fruit a day and i like recipes that don't use protein powder as their main ingredient. If you actually follow the basic information given you will lose weight. Costs about $60 more than its worth, no scientific evidence to back her claims, information you can easily find on google for free
How do u feel currently?
I paid for Ashly's secrets a few months ago and although I'm not fat by any standards, (was62kg aiming for 56/7ish)... But my saying to people who have objections or misplaced compliments is " hey, you don't see me naked, but I do, so what I see matters..."
I was also expecting something in the post with all recipes and things but what I did find was that the information given,( and I read everything back to front for my $69!), was honest and easy to follow. Ashy doesn't claim to have the 9th wonder of the world, what she does say is that 'i...
Horrible customer Service. The plan is common sence and the whole plan is full of spelling mistakes
Ashy bines is ver unprofessional and unqualified. They offers 0 customer support. The plan is a huge rip, dont waste your money!! Here is the plan pretty much = Chocolate is bad. Vegetables are good. She copied and pasted everything and when you ask her something she says "not sure google it babe :)"
Could have thought of that myself...
Haven't lost any weight... get bored with meals and i struggle to cook.
I bought this after much thought and consideration and honestly hoped it would make a difference to my life, however I was bitterly saddened. Yes i know I am slack, but this diet and ashys "google it" approach was not at all helpful or faith gaining. No good.
any non stupid person could have worked this diet out.
Not what I was hoping for
I was under the impression there would lots of recipes, tips etc but like another poster said, it was just more of a brief outline of what I could and couldn't eat. Any of the other information can be found for free on the internet. I think Ashy Bines sounds like a nice woman and certainly knows about fitness but the emails and booklets are full of spelling and grammatical errors which I find extremely off-putting. Is it really difficult to hit spellcheck or at least have someone look over it who can make it look more professional?
I got the tip to eat Rye wraps as a substitute for bread at least.
Waste of money and time unfortunately.
Not what I thought it would be
I puchrased this plan expecting that I would get a plan with meal ideas, a few menus and 24/7 support as what was stipulated in the 10 minute commercial on YouTube. I got a PDF (after over 10 Emails to the company who I purchaed it from) and I got access to a forum that is hardly monitered. There are girls on there helping one another but a lot of the time it is like the blind leading the blind. It is a worry.
That I was able to get my money back after I complained about it through PayPal. It took a lot of work but I did it.
Lack of support, spelling mistakes in PDF, incorrect information, very expensive for what it is, it was nothing like what it was advertised to be.
Do your research first
Although I was initially disappointed to discover that the 'diet plan' is just an outline, I actually did learn quite a few things about food and fitness that really helped me lose weight and the support, ideas and encouragement from other members is brilliant. People need to do more research before purchasing - Ashy is not a quick fix, but if you follow her guideline properly, you will lose the weight. Unfortunately when you put a bunch of women in the same forum, it does create quite a lot of heated discussion and Ashy has copped the brunt f...or not being able to lose the weight for lazy women. To those that criticise her - give it a month, eat exactly as she says and exercise regularly, then honestly tell me it doesn't work ;) happy training girls x Lists the do's and do not's, motivating, inspiring
Keep it up Ashy !!!
Let's be realistic here. Most people on a night out spend more than $69. More often than not you don't even realise what you have spent that $69 on.
So while people might [censored word removed] about $69 for Ashy's plan, I say suck it up. It is well worth it! Those people who have managed to adapt it to their needs and like (and that's what long term healthy eating is all about) have achieved great results.
I am one of those people. Having lost over 15kg on her plan. Every nutritionist will have a different opinion on what is a good di...et and what is not. Some recommend low carb, others low fat. Let's be realistic, you can criticise Ashy's plan all you want, but at the end of the day if something works for you, stick with it. When it comes to eating plans and guidelines our results are not based wholly and solely on the person that gave them to us, but rather how we have interpreted and then implemented them into our own lifestyle. I would happily recommend her program to others. Healthy Exercise and Eating is a journey of self-discovery and action. So if you want to be spoon fed and continue with a poor me mentality, then you should probably go and mope somewhere else. Ashy does offer support for her forum members and it's positive and encouraging.
Love Ashy's eating plan! It did reiterate a lot of things I already knew but it was the perfect kick start I needed to get motivated! I carry it with me everywhere and look at it he ever I need meal and snack inspiration or just some advice if I'm not sure of something! Love it! Great job ashy... You've changed my life! If you don't lose weight doing this then your not following it properly!
Easy to follow, lots of variety, lots of options even if your having sweet cravings, inexpensive
Nothing you can't find on the internet for free
Ashy explicitly states in her spiel that you will see results in 2-4 weeks - it's stated on her website and mentioned multiple times as a reason to buy it. She then, in the video you see after purchasing her plan, says that you won't see results in 2-4 weeks and that it will take longer. This isn't just bad marketing ethics, it's illegal. The PDF is terribly written, with spelling and grammatical errors that could have been picked up by reading it over or even running it through spell check. The recipes supplied are hard to read as the formatti...ng in some of them is screwed up, with the ingredients becoming part of the method and often they're just half the instructions that don't contain cooking times or temperatures. If you want to kick start your healthy eating then I'd buy this because you'll eat healthier to avoid feeling stupid for paying $75.50 for a product that won't give you any answers. She does, however, state in her FAQ that there isn't a meal plan included although I assume that was added in recently. It's useful for a diet idea but you can get the same ideas from any magazine in the shops. Lied in the product information, too expensive for what it is, incredibly unprofessional in appearance
Not even worth a star
Like a lot of others I wish I read this before making the purchase. I am so angry with myself. Money would've been much better spent towards a gym membership. All it seems to do is to direct you to more costly purchases. I was really hoping for a strict 7 day eating plan. Her lack of professionalism is witnessed when she can't spell or edit properly. Ripping money off her customers with no initiative to improve her service. I am a uni student with little money as is. So disappointed that people can rip innocent people off and live with themselves.
