6 Minutes To Skinny Review
What’s up, Health Fanatics!
I’m sippin’ on some black coffee while listening to Rihanna’s song called Love On The Brain, and I’m ready to write some weight loss reviews.
In today’s episode of Real Weight Loss Reviews, I’m going to be taking a close look at 6 Minutes To Skinny by Craig Ballantyne. Craig has created a weight loss product that he claims can help you burn fat and lose weight in 6 minutes or less. He also says that you can do it in the comfort of your own home, AND you don’t have to do any of those crazy 3-hour workout sessions. To add the cherry on top, he says you don’t even have to count calories, and you can still eat all of the foods that you crave oh-so-much.
I’m starting to notice a bit of a trend with these weight loss products: people want to lose weight with the least amount of effort required, without doing any crazy workouts, and while eating their favorite foods. In essence, people want to lose weight with as little change as possible.
Anyways, let’s move onto the review and see if Craig Ballantyne can back up these common claims.
Danyon Togia Is Not Affiliated With Craig Ballantyne Or 6 Minutes To Skinny
Yes, sometimes I like to talk about myself in the third person. This sneaky little paragraph is just to let you know that I’m not an affiliate for Craig or his 6 Minutes To Skinny product. The reason why I call this series of reviews “Real Weight Loss Reviews” is because if I find a product that’s crap (which is 99% of them), I’ll say it’s crap. If I find a weight loss product that’s amazing and helps you to lose weight efficiently and permanently, I’ll let you know about it, and you can decide if you want to buy it or not. I guess you could call me a weight loss product sifter.
Now that we’ve got out of the way let’s get into the review.
6 Minutes To Skinny Review In 15 Seconds
Let’s just cut straight to it: 6 Minutes To Skinny is a pretty average weight loss product. It contains some good things such as its simplicity and the additional resources that come with the purchase, but overall it’s an overpriced product with unrealistic promises. Your money and time are better invested elsewhere.
If you’ve got time to stick around, whip up a black coffee for yourself and join me as I take you through the whole review.
15 Minute Sales Video With A Number Of Upsells
The first thing that struck my mind about this product was the sales video. If you check out their page, you’ll be greeted with a video with no option to purchase the product. I literally had to wait approximately 15 minutes for the button to even buy the friggen thing.
Here’s an example of what it looks like.
Then after hearing the video presenter’s stupid voice for a full 15 minutes; only then was I able to purchase the product.
After purchasing the product, I was met with typical upsells of both diet and exercise products.
I finally received access to the product and dove right into it.
The Good: 6 Minutes To Skinny Is Easy To Follow, And Comes With Additional Resources
Let’s start with the good points of 6 Minutes To Skinny. First off, the actionable steps of the program are incredibly easy to follow. The whole 6 Minutes To Skinny protocol can be summarized in one page.
Looks easy enough, right? Just a workout in the morning followed by a healthy shake that contains tons of nutrition and tastes great. I think this is excellent for people who are trying to lose weight because it’s very simple, easy to follow, and takes less than ten minutes to complete.
I also believe that the fact this program is completed in the morning makes it extremely beneficial. I’ve lost over 70 pounds in the past two years (starting at 275 pounds, currently weigh 202 pounds), and during this period I’ve gone for a 20 to 30-minute walk every morning. It just sets the mood for the day; starting out the day with exercise and eating healthy puts you in a good state, and positively effects the rest of your day. But this isn’t just my experience; studies have shown that your morning routine has a direct impact on your ability to weight and keep it off.
The other points that are worth mentioning include the additional resources that come along with 6 Minutes To Skinny such as smoothie recipes and workout videos to aid you in your weight loss journey.
So these are the, for lack of a better word, “good things” about 6 Minutes To Skinny:
- Simple routine that’s easy-to-follow
- Workout and shake in the morning have positive benefits for weight loss
- Comes with a bunch of additional resources
With that being said, there were some cons to 6 Minutes To Skinny, and they definitely outweigh the good.
The Bad: 6 Minutes To Skinny Contains Unrealistic Promises
On the 15-friggen-minute long sales video, Craig Ballantyne stresses the fact that, with the 6 Minutes To Skinny program, you’ll be able to lose weight without any grueling workouts, and also without giving up any of your favorite junk foods.
Now this is 100% true: you can lose weight while eating pizza, burgers, and chips as long as you’re in a calorie deficit. That’s why this guy was able to eat Twinkies, Doritos, and Oreos while still managing to lose 27 pounds. However, Craig Ballantyne has failed to include any information on this in the 6 Minute To Skinny guide. He doesn’t say anywhere that you need to be in a caloric deficit (which is practically the only thing required for you to lose weight). Therefore the information he provides isn’t aligned with his sales claims.
This also relates to the basis of the program; I can easily see someone who completes the 6 Minute To Skinny workout and shake, and then still gains weight. They can easily think, “Well, I’ve done my 6-minute workout, now I can eat anything I want like he says on the video!”
The problem isn’t necessarily with the length of the workout; studies have shown that you can burn tons of calories in a short period of time using High-Intensity Interval Training. The problem stems from the belief that you can eat whatever you want and still lose weight without being in a calorie deficit. This is why the majority of fitness experts say that diet is approximately 70-80% of the game when it comes to weight loss.
6 Minutes To Skinny Final Rating: C+
It’s good. It’s simple. It’s easy to follow, and it’s in the morning. But it’s nothing great, and it contains a bunch of unrealistic promises without any informative information about the number one requirement for weight loss – being in a calorie deficit.
For that reason, I give 6 Minutes To Skinny A Solid C+. It’s okaaaay, but your money and time are better invested elsewhere.
