Kirstie Alley Launches Weight Loss Company Organic Liaison

It’s been exactly two years since Kirstie Alley walked away from Jenny Craig, having lost 75 pounds on the program, and announced she was dreaming up her own weight loss program.

Little did she, or we, know, that while she was passionately working on starting this company, she would gain back the 75 pounds she lost, plus ten. We’ve watched Kirstie’s weight fluctuations for years. Using Oprah as a stage for promoting her weight loss, and confessing her weight gain, Kirstie made yet another appearance today. This time, it was to promote her new show on A&E, Kirstie Alley’s Big Life premiering March 21, and her new company, Organic Liaison.

She says she’s been working with a team of scientists to create an organic weight loss plan and is now excited to share with all of us Organic Liaison. It’s a multi-layer membership and supplement program that supports the weight loss efforts of men and women, and is meant to “escort you into the world of organic weight loss,” says Kirstie in the site’s introductory video.

Members have access to the Organic Network Locator, which helps identify organic grocery stores, farmer’s markets and restaurants by ZIP code.

The fun-having actress has made weight loss fun too, by offering members the Body Game, which puts you and a partner (called your Chubby Buddy) in a waist-to-waist competition to lose weight together and share the journey.

Members will access to a Success Graph, which shows your efforts and progress to goal.

Additionally, Organic Liaison will help you get your eating on track by creating meal plans just for you with “brands from a featured partner and foods from organic recipes.” They’ll match your dietary needs, like vegetarian or low carb.

A diet journal, recipe database, calorie counter and more is readily available to Organic Liaison members via their online account.

Organic Liaison also has a line of USDA Organic supplement products also meant to help you manage your weight loss. The Organic Liaison Rescue Me package includes three diet supplements meant to help you cleanse and detox while reducing cravings, curbing appetitive, boosting energy and supporting fat metabolism.

Rescue Me “takes on and wollops two big road blocks for losing weight and keeping it off – excess hunger and cravings,” says Kirstie. The products offer organic ingredients that include vitamins, minerals, herbs, fiber and antioxidants.

Other supplements from Organic Liaison include Nightingale, which is a L-Tryptophan and vitamin supplement to help you sleep and promote weight loss; Pagoda is a green tea extract that helps manage your metabolism and burn calories.

The Rescue Me kit costs $139.00 from Organic Liaison. The Organic Liaison monthly membership costs $10; the annual membership costs $89.

It seems very expensive, I believe I could go into a health food store and buy comparable products. Also, I do like Kristie, but, there is no way she is a size 6. I am 5'9", and weigh 200 pounds. If she's a 6, I'm a 2! And trust me, I'm not a 2!

why is it so expensive?

I understand the concept, but, from what I have read you pay $329.00 to get started and the $139.00 and month for the product plus buying all the organic products at the store. Well I am like alot of people I have kids, bills and other things and would love to join, but, it would take away from all the everyday things. I see famous people in the videos, but, no everyday people. Of course they can afford it, they make alot bigger income than people like me..not knocking your product I think it is awesome, but for me, I just can't afford it..I wish you well with it Kirstie, you are an awesome person yourself..Thanks, Tracy from McRae, Ga.

I think this sounds great and I'd really love to try it, however, the price is just too steep.

I watched Kristie Alleys show & I just got bummed out by watching her. I'm gained alot of weight this past deployment & when my husband came home he acted as if he didn't notice & basically was a great guy. I knew I gained weight so I decided I need to change my lifestyle. I've given up soda((I'm a Texas gal & I love Dr.Pepper & Big Red)), I've given up fast food, chips, white pasta, even white bread! I drink water & even did a detox tea to help cleanse my body. I did it & lost ten pounds already & still going! I exercise & no I don't have tons of money for diets & workout equipment & yes the Army base does have Gyms for free which is awesome! But I like being home so I dance for 30 minutes, work out on the elliptical for 45 minutes, walk for 30-45 minutes after dinner, & since summer is here I go to the pool a few times a week for 4 hrs. I'm feeling so much better just by those few things. I know it sucks if you feel like you have no support but if you wanna email me for tips or what not i'll be glad to talk to you. my email is . Remember no matter if you have to lose 10 pounds or 300 pounds you can do it and not give money out of pocket to Kristie Alley. She should have affordable products for gals just like her wanting to look better. Instead she knows how being over weight makes her feel & is trying to get rich off of us. Don't do it!!!! You can by the same stuff she is selling that detox @ the grocery store in the tea section for 5 bucks!!! Don't be stupid!! Please email if you have any questions.

Ok. The fact is all of these diet companies, plans, gimmicks, products, all tell ppl the same freaking thing. Watching what u eat, aka portion control, and exercise will make u lose weight. But, ppl like me need to b accountable. I am going to try Organic Liaison along with using my new Wii & the Jillian Michaels workout for the Wii- U can follow me on Twitter.

the Man JH in the testimonial video On the Web Site is her Chubby Buddy from the TV show.

if that isn't a red flag I don't know what is.

I read that several members have hypothyroidism on here. If you have autoimmune thyroid then you should be eating gluten free as you most probably have celiac disease also (usually goes hand in hand with hashimotos.) I run a gf food company in Southern Cal, called "So Good Gluten Free Foods

I have hypothyroidism, and am constantly battling my weight. I have just discovered L-Tyrosine. It is an amino acid, I bought it online at Vitacost for $2.15 a bottle. It increased my energy, decreases my appetite, and helps burn more fat when working out. I am eating healthy as I've always done........BUT, have lost 8.5lbs. in the last two weeks!!!!! It is safe. I have finally found something to help my sluggish metabolism. I am so delighted!

I just started the diet plan and received every thing in my diet kit and now I'm watching what I eat and counting me calorie intake. I like the fact that I can clean the toxins out of my body and receive more energy because i have a slow metobliosm. Now I'm ready to get serious in my diet plan.

I agree with Amelia, and Julia below, for that matter.

Before forking out another cent to a diet plan, I decided to see what the Vice Busting Diet is all about. Hey, it's free!

It's not a quick solution, but a long-term lifestyle change. It's about overcoming the vices in your life that are making you unhappily overweight, one small step and huge vice at a time.

I am trying it now and here's what I have done. I substituted water for soda and all sweetened beverages for my first week. In my second week, I substituted fresh fruit for cookies and all desserts. So far, my pants are looser.

The goal is not to change everything at once because then you are setting yourself up for burnout and failure. The goal is to better yourself by changing one thing at a time over a long period of time.

I will come back here in a couple of weeks to post if I have any success.

Poor, rich or otherwise, you shouldn't be relying on supplement products like this to lose the weight. Kirstie's not going to do anything to cater to poor women. If you consider yourself a "poor woman" and you have weight to lose, nothing, and I mean nothing, beats the old fashioned way. Get up, exercise (walking/jogging/running are all free), watch your portion sizes and eat healthful foods. Ditch sodas, fast-food, fried foods and processed crap for real food - lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, whole grains. Spend money on healthier groceries, you don't need to spend money on fitness, and forget dumping cash into pipe dreams like this.

i am just wondering what she will do as it regards poor women who might need this product --- in the real world they cannot afford this stuff you know. I really do like the idea that she left jenny craig and is trying it on her own.

I was already at her website and love it!!!! I am not particularly into following anyone else practices or methods, but my own common sense and emotions. Still, I have had so much fun with things that I feel work for me. I believe in myself and welcome people that feel great with themselves no matter their size or believes. Go Kristie!!!!

I agree. The concept is good, but the cost is not. Maybe someday when I hit the lotter...................

This is the problem. It is difficult to achieve a weight loss goal with quality products when you are impoverished.

Organic Liaisons appears to offer all the needed benefits to be successful, however "affordable" is a term used loosely, as it is not affordable for an SSI, TANF and EBT recipient such as myself.

It is expensive to buy organic and healthy. For instance, our family's Food Stamp (EBT) budget per month is only $352 for a family of 3. It is nearly impossible to stay within this budget, but for unhealthy and "un"-organic food products like Top Ramen.

Those of us who exist and function on a fixed income, as Diana mentioned, do not have the liberty or luxury, as we would relatively consider it, to make healthy, organic choices, because we just don't have the monetary allotment. Not to mention that being so poor is depressing, which often leads to a sedentary lifestyle, even if a mobility issue isn't present to begin with.

Moderator - you don't have to post this if don't want to. Regarding my email about the testimonial page and the istockphoto picutures.

I sent an email directly from Organic Liaison page this morning stating my concenrns. I wanted to comment here so that people may be informed. Checking back to the website and the testimmonial page the photos are now gone but the testimonials are still there.

I was very polite in my note to Organic Liaison and asked for a response. While they have removed the photos (kept the tesimonials) they have not contacted me.

We shall see.

The concern that I have about this diet plan is the testimonials. I thought initially that the photos looked a bit orchestrated. When I got to the last photo it looked familiar and I realized that it was a similar photo I used on my web site that I had purchased from istockphoto.com.

So I checked and yes indeed those photos are not real people but stock photos. You don't have to believe me you can go istockphotos and view for yourself. Girl holding grocery bag #11133293.

I am not trying to be disparaging of Kirstie Alley's diet program, perhaps it is the next best thing, but I believe in the truth. If you post false photos are the testimonials indeed false? It leaves me to question what else may or may not be true.

I would encourage everyone to be smart in their shopping for a diet product and I welcome Organic Liason to respond to the issues with their testimonials.

Thank-you
