On the Cinch Inch Loss Plan, you consume one Cinch shakes in place of two meals, preferably breakfast and lunch or a Cinch Meal-in-a-Bar, both of which contain a mega serving of protein. In addition, Cinch energy teas can be consumed throughout the day to offer a natural energy boost. Cinch Snack Bars can be eaten in lieu of your usual afternoon or mid-morning snack and the Cinch 3-in-1-Boot supplement is also taken each day in order to supply your body with the vitamins and minerals it needs and to regulate your blood sugar.

for the past 4 months I have been using shaklee products, one shake in the morning along with one at lunch, I also slowly added the metabolic boost, starting 1/2 pill a day eventually reaching 2 pills a day last month as initially I had jitters when I took the full dose. in mid may I weighed 236 lbs and today sept 26 i am 205lbs on the scale. I supplemented this with exercise also going 3 times to the gym a week. I am very satisfied with this product, difficult at first to switch from bacon and eggs breakfast to a shake but eventually I adapted. Expensive but if you take out the cost of breakfast and lunch, it is basically the same cost. Highly recommend if you can stick to the plan of 2 shakes and one regular dinner.

Lost weight and kept it off. Have lost tons of weight on other programs but usually weighed more a year later than when I started. Last year I did the Cinch plan and have kept it off. Just ordered the 180 program (updated Cinch) and ready to get on track and take my weight down another 10-15 lbs this year.

My weight was 170 in July 07. I started the Cinch program that month. I stayed on it and exercised every day and by September 07 I had gone from a size 12 to a size 4, weighing 125. I did eat a salad at the dinner meal, that seem to really help a lot. I got fabulous results and I still use it.

I've never felt more satisfied - I'm not hungry for hours - it's easy to follow - it's a Cinch! Love this stuff!

I use this program to both lose and maintain weight loss. The program is the best way to start but once you have lost the weight or just need energy during the day, I buy the prodcts seperately. I love, love, love the energy tea mix.

I ordered the Cinch program, and figured I would hate the protein drinks and bars. Well, I am ready to completely invest in this program. The shakes are delicious and makes me feel like I am cheating, which helps me because I always cheat on a diet anyway, hence no progress. So, now I can cheat and get away with it. It is great you should try it. I am not a distributor, but thinking about it.

Cinch plan work and you can replace two meals with two shakes, not just two meals for one shake. I started the program 6 weeks ago and I've lost 18 pounds. I also do 15 miles or 1 hour bike ride a day plus 30 minute eliptical training 3 times a week. I have one rest dday with no exercise. I have a normal dinner, but have cut out (temprarily) any alcohol an excess sweets. If I take the kids for ice scream, I have frozen yogart.

I've used Shaklee's Cinch program and have found it to be user friendly and effective. It works! I liked the software, too. It helped me to see where I was lacking in protein but overdoing the carbs, and it had many good recipe ideas. I lost weight and enjoyed the products and was not hungry when I followed the plan!
