Like more and more people these days, you’ve probably tried losing weight before. Maybe you didn’t lose as much as you hoped. Maybe you did lose, but gained all or some of it back afterward. I’ve been there many times myself and I know how you feel.
Unleash Your Thin is a new program from Dr Jonny Bowden and at first sight it might seem like just another diet. But there are a couple of things that make it very different from other diet plans that you may have tried.
Jonny claims he can show you a way to break free of the desire to overeat that is at the root of all our weight problems. At the same time, he recommends an easy-to-follow low carb diet plan that has helped a lot of people to lose weight fast.
I’ll tell you all about the program in a moment. First let me introduce myself. My name’s Rosemary and these are my photos:
The first one was taken at the weight that I was when I started Unleash Your Thin. The second was taken in early March 2013, after I’d lost 14 pounds on the program.
I lost those 14 pounds in 2 weeks with virtually no cravings, and I’m still losing two months later. I have tons more energy, I’ve stopped binge eating or even wanting to binge, and I seem to have recovered from the chronic fatigue that I’ve had for the last several years. It’s been an amazing experience for me.
So I guess I’m not an unbiased reviewer. But I do have real experience of following the program, which won’t be true of a lot of the Unleash Your Thin reviews that you might read. If you want to see me in person, you can watch my video here
But enough about me, right? Your question is: will it work for you?
I think so. I’ve seen other people’s results in the members’ forum (I’ll show you some of those later in this post) and I think it would work for most anybody. But please read on to find out why.
It’s not your fault
Jonny Bowden’s first message is: if you’re overweight, it’s not your fault.
In the Fat Burning Blueprint that is just one part of this program, Jonny focuses on the question of food addiction. He talks about how food these days is manufactured to ‘hook’ us and how the low fat diets that the establishment recommends simply push us into buying more and more addicting foods. That’s why so many of us are overweight in the first place, and also why it’s so hard to lose.
Jonny Bowden says that even if you don’t think you’re addicted to any foods, you probably are. If you’re heavier than you want to be, if you’ve been on diets before and gained the weight back after, if you can’t stop eating certain foods after ‘just one’ … then you surely are.
What’s in Unleash Your Thin?
There are 4 parts to the program:
1. The 130-page Fat Burning Blueprint that sets out step by step how to lose your unwanted pounds and keep them off.
2. The 77-page Craving Crusher Action Guide that tells you all you need to know to overcome your food cravings and addictions. I have a printed copy of this and the Fat Burning Blueprint and I refer to them often.
There are quizzes to fill out before you start and again after 3 weeks and 6 weeks on the program, to monitor your progress. It’s worth taking the time to do this because looking back at your results will be a huge motivator later.
3. A 10-Minute Meal Guide including day-by-day meal plan, shopping list and recipe guide.
You don’t have to follow the meal plan but it’s there if you want it. There are a lot of delicious recipes too. Getting bored is one of the big dangers of any diet – you can beat it before it even starts with all of the ideas in here.
4. Membership of the supportive private forum where you’ll meet other people following the program. If you want to post there you’ll find you get a lot of support and encouragement from others.
You can learn a lot from seeing how other people are getting along with the program too. I’ll show you just a few people’s results in a moment – there are tons more inside.
Along with all of that you get some surprise bonuses inside the members’ area that I won’t reveal! And if you want you can add other things to your order, including ‘Bulletproof Your Mind‘, an audio download/CD that can help you keep your mind focused on attaining your weight loss goals.
Why should you listen to a former drug addict?
It may surprise you to hear that Jonny Bowden is open about having been addicted to drugs and alcohol in the past, as well as food. He’s recovered from all of those addictions by following a system like the one he recommends for us in the Craving Crusher Action Guide.
At first, it might seem weird for you to be taking advice from a former drug addict (it did for me).
Just keep in mind that somebody who has quit a hugely addicting substance like heroin – and also quit the methadone that doctors recommend as an alternative – must have figured out a good system for dealing with addiction.
This is what he can give you: the possibility of breaking free of your food addictions to cake, chocolate, pizza, whatever it is – for ever.
I decided I would listen to anybody who can free me from my binges, cravings and addictions. You might want to do the same.
Simple and flexible
You may already know that low carb diets work. I knew it. I’ve done Atkins before and I did lose weight. But I was soon sick of carb counting and I wanted to eat more vegetables and less meat.
What I like best about Unleash Your Thin is that it’s so simple and flexible. There’s no carb counting and no talk about being in or out of ketosis. You can have almost all vegetables including a lot of the starchier veggies like pumpkin, peas and lentils. And you don’t have to keep a food journal.
If you’ve lost weight with low carb diets before, you’ll love this one. If you haven’t, try it because a low carb diet plan is not like other diets. You can eat plenty and you’re not thinking about food all the time. You won’t have the same hunger and cravings that you have on other diets.

What other people say
It’s not just me who’s losing weight fast with this plan. Here are some comments from other people in the members’ area:
“My bf lost 6 lbs this past week and I have lost 11. We are so excited and it feels great not to even be tempted by foods we cannot have. This program is just awesome and so darn easy!!!!! I have never been on anything so easy!” – Elizabeth T*.
“Have lost 9.5 lbs so far! [in one week] I am so grateful that I am once again on the *downhill* side of the scale! I am so grateful for this program!” – Daria T.
“I stepped on the scales today and I was 4.3 pounds lighter…This has NEVER, EVER happened to me in my entire life. Ladies and Gentlemen, we are on to something here…” – June E.
* I have changed members’ names to protect their privacy but I can provide screenshots of the actual comments if required.
The main issue I had with the program was that Jonny suggests you spend a week working through the Cravings Crusher Action Guide worksheets to figure out exactly where you are with food addictions etc before you change anything in your diet. That may be a great idea in theory but for me, in practice, it didn’t work too well. I found I was using that time to have a massive binge before the diet began!
So I started the low carb diet plan earlier than recommended, after 3 or 4 days. From that moment on, it was fine but of course the bingeing was an unhealthy thing to do. It’s also probably part of the reason why I lost so much weight in the first couple of weeks: some of it will be from that binge (although not all). Anyway, if you have a tendency to binge eat, you might want to do the same as me and start the eating plan earlier than he suggests.
Unleash Your Thin discount and purchase advice
I paid $47 for the program and I don’t regret that, I’m glad I got it when I did because I’m now only
15 pounds (update, June 2013: now 5 pounds) from my goal weight.
But there’s good news for you because there’s now a $10 discount so it’s just $37. How does that compare with what you’re currently spending on junk food? And it’s a one-time payment!
There’s a money-back guarantee for 60 days so you can try it risk-free. It’s available as an instant download too so you can get started right away.
Just be sure to order from the official site because that’s the only way that you can get the whole package, including membership of the private forum. There you get support from Jonny and his team plus other people following the program (including me, Rosemary C). Having a support network is one of the most important factors that Jonny talks about in the Craving Crusher Action Guide, so don’t miss out on that.
To buy or not to buy?
Based on my own experience and what I’ve seen of reviews from everybody else inside the membership area who’s following the plan right now, I know that this is a weight loss program that works. I think most anybody could follow it and lose weight with it. In my experience it’s easy to keep the weight off, too.
The most important part of it for me is the way it helps you to beat food addiction so that you can keep “your thin” after you reach your goal weight.
So I’m happy to recommend this program to you. I suggest you try it for yourself, you’ve got nothing to lose – except that excess weight!
