I looked it up, wow $170/month? Insane. I can come back later and go over more of the ingredients but basically, save your money The ingredients look pretty standard and here are some of the ingredients that stand out.

Here is a write up from Dr Weil about Konjac root which is the ingredient of the "Cheat" pill.

The "accelerate" pill contains a lot of stuff, including one bad boy which you should stay away from, Chromium picolinate. Here is a 3FC write up about it:
http://www.3fatchicks.com/chromium-picolinate%20/

The flush pill contains both fiber to help 'move' things but also senna leaf which is a laxative that can be habit forming, ie after taking it for a while, your body may NEED it to do its business. It is not something that should be taken long term and definitely not for a month.

I figured it would be expensive and not as healthy as they proclaim it to be...there's always someone selling something at work that is working "great" for them. Half my coworkers are taking something called VIBE..suppossed to be a cure all...only $70 or more a month...

A coworkers wife who is a nurse is "promoting" it.

Jules,

I tend to avoid things that people are personally making a profit off of if its not their own product. (IE, I'll buy something from etsy but won't buy some diet pill a coworker is selling) People are too willing to make outrageous claims when it comes to adding to their profit margin, especially with diet products.
