Tone It Up Nutrition Plan Reviews?

Post by smorespup » Tue Jun 25, 2013 9:07 pm

I was just wondering if any of you have had any experience with the Tone It Up nutrition plan. I've read a few success stories and it seems to be a good program, but I'm just wondering if it's worth the money ($150). Do you think there are comparable methods to getting fit or do you think this nutrition plan really stands out?

Disclaimer: I'm not looking for a miracle diet/exercise plan or anything, I've just heard a lot of people rave about it and I'm wondering if it's truly worth the money.

Honestly, I don't understand why anyone would spend so much money on a nutrition plan when all the info they give you is already available on the internet, you just have to do some research. I have heard rave reviews on the TIU plan too, but I wouldn't spend my money on something I can easily get for free.

I agree. It's far too much money for information you can gather yourself. Just eat clean and work out. If you want to follow a plan I believe blogilates has something similar on her website - for free!

From everything I've heard, a lot of the plan is just common sense, and if you know anything about nutrition at all, it is a waste of money.

I've considered purchasing their plan because they offer so many different plans for people with gluten allergies and vegetarians but I never got around to it because although I've heard success stories, I also hear people say it's very low-calorie and something (like others have said) that's pretty common sense. Blogilates (on Youtube as well) just announced she's coming out with a 12-week diet plan for meat eaters and vegans and it's going to be available free so I'm looking forward to that.

I heard about the reality TV show as well! I think I'll definitely watch it. Although I've actually never done their workouts because I feel like their workouts our for toning up and not really melting away fat/cardio, I do keep up with their instagram/announcements because I admire their friendship!

I think I am going to watch their show too. I've been finding them to be pretty fun to watch on YT lately, and I do like their workout a lot.

It looks like a lot of money for a plan basically made up of common sense.

I used an extremely strict rigid plan after I had my daughter and I lost 30lb in a month, losing 12lb in the first week alone. This is obviously not recommended for long term weight loss but its a kick start shock plan that gives great results if followed for just a short period of time. I can PM you my plan if you are interested :)

ITA. I think you can figure out the basic foundation of their plan online for free anyway! I wouldn't pay $150 for it that's for certain.

I'm a Tone it Up member so I've got the plan (I have the omnivore/regular version so I don't know if there's different content in plans catering to different diets). I like my plan and I like being a TIU member. It's a lifetime membership and I wanted to support the brand because they give so much of their content for free which I've enjoyed for many years. It is not, however, revolutionary. It's common sense. I learned a lot from it but that was at a time when I hadn't read all that much about nutrition. The recipes are okay but you can find similar recipes online, on their blog or on healthy living blogs. I've made a few from the different plans (we are sent seasonal editions too, on top of the regular plan). They turn out alright usually.

Basically: water, veggies, lean protein, fruit, whole grains - in that order.

I've watched the first episode of their show and no surprises here. It made me realise just how regularly I follow them on their different platforms as practically none of the content was new.

Oh god their show is HORRIBLE. They are so incredibly obnoxious... some is put on for tv but you can still tell they're annoying. But there's no way it will get picked up for a 2nd season (or even the full 1st tbh) so I'm not worried ;)

I watched their first episode and while I don't think it will be renewed for a second season, I enjoyed it. I really like Karena and Katrina. I think their personalities are really fun and the show wasn't anything special - but I still watched the entire episode.

They mentioned millions watch their videos but not one of their videos have reached over the million count and they don't even have a million subscribers.

Whoever filmed the show used a formula that has been used on so many other shows. I felt like I was watching a repeat of some other show that I can't remember but with fitness content. Why were they even offered this show?

Sorry for double posting but I think a big problem with why the show is so boring is because they filmed it such a long time ago. People knows what happens to their injuries and that they don't live together anymore. They play up the dumb girl act and it's annoying. The person who is the worst at faking it is the Kat's finance. He's so over dramatic when he speaks and his body language.

I think their plan is good for people who need the structure of a plan. People talk about eating clean and working out like it's simple, but clearly thousands of people struggle to do that and could probably benefit from some sort of guideline.

I wish that they weren't so over-sexualized in their videos all of the time. We get it. You have amazing bodies. We don't need to see close-ups up your bare butts in thong bikinis! :lol: I like their show, but I agree that it is kind of boring and won't get renewed. I think they only filmed 8 episodes but I could be wrong.

:lol: this is so true. I only watched part of the first episode and you could really tell he was putting on for the cameras.

I like TIU for the free fitness routines and I am currently following their 100 by Valentine's Day workouts, but I really don't like how the two of them are playing so dumb for this show. To me, that completely goes against their supposed message. Strong and sexy women don't dumb it down. I'm annoyed that they're giving in to such a negative stereotype.

I actually really dislike the ToneItUp videos and their marketing. How weird is that Kat's own brother has to film her butt for some of the videos. I hate how they always call their workout moves something different when it's really just a side plank or it's a deadlift. Or how they NEVER emphasis proper form especially during deadlifts because they have to maintain this perfect beachy image.

Then they overcharge their nutrition plan which is basically just the Eat Clean by Tosca Reno.

I don't know how they got this show. I really don't. They may be two pretty girls but beyond that, they haven't done anything that's been extraordinary.

I'm starting to believe that theory that they just answered a call ad for two fitness girls to headline a fitness company.

Can you please tell me what your plan is? I'm curious.

I have the plan and I'm glad I bought it. Of course, it is basically common sense on the nutrition part, but it gives you a lot more insight to what you should eat at what times of the day, alternative foods to eat, and tons of new recipes. It's not a super strict plan where you have to weigh all of your food and count calories, which is what I really like about the plan, because I love to eat. I will admit that the $150 was a little pricey, but like someone else said above, I wanted to support the girls because they put out so much content for free. They do usually emphasize proper form during deadlifts/etc. so I'm not sure why that was such a big deal to the above poster. They have amazing bodies that they work really hard for, they can't wear bikinis now? Come on guys :? It's not like they are out there like that one girl from body rock tv, that is just trashy. K&K keep it classy, IMO.

I love Karena and Katrina and the show is cute. It's not like other Bravo shows pitting women against other women, it's mostly uplifting and positive, which is a breath of fresh air. Keep in mind it IS a reality show though :P
I don't really think they're playing dumb or ditzy, I think they just have bubbly personalities.
Bottom line, if you want more insight and motivation and to learn more about achieving a healthier lifestyle, I would recommend the plan. If you don't wanna pay then I would find a friend who has the plan already. <3

There's a big difference in perception between fans of TIU and non-fans. Fans usually can see no fault in the girls and think they are wonderful. I think they are cheats who hide behind the spray tans and beachy hair. The show is stupid and it's scripted for the most part.

Some people like to see the best in others and try to see that they are doing something positive in helping others achieve a healthier lifestyle. And there are people who are cynical of everyone and everything. :)

Differing opinions. If you see the positive in everything, everyone is a good person even when they aren't.

The more I watch the show, the more ridiculous I find the drama that ensues. Brian's drama with Karena is scripted. He's being an ass on purpose for the show. He plays it up and he's such a bad actor. The whole thing with Kat's neck is just annoying. There's no way that she would continue in her yoga class if her neck was acting up and they had their DVD shoot coming up. She should've just walked out or gone into child's pose. It's so stupid how she has so much riding on her physical health to compromise that just for a yoga class. As a fitness instructor, she should know that physical injuries take seconds to happen and months to heal.

I also don't like their planning. I refuse to believe that they are that dumb that they went out to Hawaii early just to party and live it up then spend the last two days filming their DVD. It should've been the other way around to give them time in case something goes wrong. I'm really surprised that no one told them this. I know it's for tv but still, stupidity does not sell fitness products.
