Beyond Diet: Achieve your Ideal Body Weight and Prevent Disease

 By Mizpah Matus B.Hlth.Sc(Hons)

beyond-dietBeyond Diet is an online weight loss plan designed to help you achieve your ideal body weight and prevent disease.

It was created by Isabel De Los Rios, a certified nutritionist, exercise specialist and owner of New Body – Center for Fitness and Nutrition in New Jersey.

Says De Los Rios, “My program is about establishing an overall improvement in the food people consume and the physical lifestyles they lead. It is not about following a specific diet for a short amount of time just to drop a few pounds.”

Beyond Diet Basics

When you join the Beyond Diet program the first step is to determine your metabolic type by answering a series of questions. You will be provided with a list of foods that are the best for your metabolism. Following the right diet for your type will help you lose weight more effectively and achieve optimal wellbeing.


Next you will use an online calorie calculator to help you determine the foods you should be eating each day. In the Beyond Diet program you don’t actually have to count calories but rather monitor the amount of servings for each meal. You will also see what percentage of protein, carbohydrates and fat are recommended for your metabolic type.

beyond-diet-isabel-de-los-riosEach day you should consume breakfast, lunch and dinner with appropriate snacks in between. It is important to never allow yourself to become ravenously hungry because this has the potential to lead to cravings and overeating. It is also recommended to drink half of your weight in water in ounces daily.

Dieters are advised to avoid prepackaged, processed foods and instead to eat the most natural products possible with organic foods being preferred. However, it is not necessary to completely change your diet overnight.

You can gradually get rid of one or two of the worst empty calorie foods and replace them with healthy substitutes. By making small changes you won’t feel overwhelmed which increases the chance of you making a long-term adjustment to a healthy lifestyle.

    thank you Isabel x

  • Sarah

    This is absolutely brilliant! not sure if my last post worked but I have lost 9 pounds this week through watching the video and buying the book. I am now considering signing up online for the support. i feel so angry that I have been misled for years within the supermarket . A lot of food stuff i thought was better for me was actually doing me harm. I fully recommend and I hope the weight continues to drop off

  • Alison

    Thinking if ordering and doing this. I know I have to put in the work. Do people recommend. Thx

  • Kristan Bishop

    I paid $47 and was lead to believe I was getting the book, but it is only a download. I would not have done it if I had known that. I emailed and said that and got a response that the book only comes as a download. That is not true, it’s even on Amazon! I wish I could cancel my order, it was very misleading.

    • Jill

      You actually get way more than the book that’s offered on Amazon. I was skeptical myself, but you actually get 12 downloads, some of which aren’t much. Included in that 12 however are 5 recipe books with faboulous recipes. I’ve been in BD for 5 weeks and have lost 16 pounds. I completely cut out gluten, sugar and processed foods. Give it a try!

  • gail merry

    PAid for but never received the program order#1285522

    • ted

      You have to download the program. Check your email receipt of payment. There you should find download instructions. :-)

  • teresa

    thinking about ordering this but a little ifey. when doing this can i by regular fresh fruits and veg not organtic

    • ted

      I doubt you would notice any difference in weight loss. You might be taking in more pesticides, but just make sure everything is well washed.

  • Karen Meade

    I paid my $47 plus an extra $30 for 2 books which I have not gotten. It’s been weeks now. I can’t seem to find where to go on the website to check on them. Can you help?

    • Alli

      Ms. Meade,

      I apologize for the confusion on how to access your products. I came across your comment, and I’ve emailed you directly on how to access the program. I hope you enjoy!

    • ted

      You should have gotten an email receipt from them. I would contact them through that email.

  • Don Lackritz

    This is the most sensible regimen I’ve ever seen. It’s well worth the money as long as y ou take it serious. Perhaps parting with the money will make people more motivated to get what they paid for. I hope so, because these nutitionists have laid out an absolutely truthful regimen. To those who say they’ve heard it all before I would respond that it’s great they’ve learned their truthful points. But that doesn’t mean it’s foolish to hear it reinforced and to a greater degree. There’s got to be some things they weren’t aware of, even if thet already knew the basic points. I have no personal agenda. I just read all the facts they laid out without my entering the program. But I can say, every single claim they made was honest and truthful since I’ve been eating that way for many years. I can’t find a single false claim, but rather an intelligent, life-saving regimen that beats anything I’ve read before with regards to diet and health. If I weren’t already sold on everything they claimed, I’d pay the meager fee in a heartbeat since it’s such an inexpensive way to learn the absolute best way to achieve longevity, happiness, weight control, and overall health that I’ve ever been exposed to. Believe me, this is a wonderful and remarkably inexpensive way to learn something so important and beneficial to personal nutrition that will achieve remarkable improvement in anyone’s health as long as they stick to the guidelines they’ve so clearly laid out. I bow my hat to this regimen. It’s not in the slghtest bit phony or exorbitent. Good luck to anyone wise enough to follow the guidelines they’ve laid out. It can’t possibly fail.

  • Paul

    I’m a 300lb guy desperate to figure out how to get healthy. In my heart og heart I don’t believe the volume of food I eat is any different than everyone I know who is skinny.. I have rationalized that my metabolism is slow because of what i eat. I lack knowledge of how my body uses food.. All the stuff I just saw in the intro video is exactly what I want to know about. My question is: Does membership offer me an abundance of everything I could want to know about the actual nutrician suggested? How extensive is the information available. UI personally enjoy video versus reading.. Is there good videos covering the materials once I join?

    • George Danley

      Last Christmas, 8 months ago, I weighed 286 lbs. I had to roll over to get off of my couch. Today I weigh 225. I lost the weight by cutting out sugar, in all forms. I stopped eating bread, except for whole grain. I no longer drink soda. I drink water, sometimes mixed with squirt bottle additives. I use honey. But, most of all, I count calories. I seldom go over 1500 in a day. I also walk 3 miles per day. I had to build up to this gradually. There is no trick to losing weight, you simply watch what you eat, how much, and burn off calories. I allow myself a splurge day every two weeks. And even then, I don’t eat anything that is sugar laden. Good luck.

  • Vanessa

    I’m almost convinced!
    I have no problem with the $50.00lifetime membership. What concerns me is the time and resources necessary for preparing the meals. If I had a personal shopper/nany/chef at my beck and call this would be a breeze! Im dizzy trying to become a nutritionalist on google! Fact of the matter is simply……..

    Can anyone tell me the time commitment and learning curve as well as the availability in my area for the food specific to this program.

    This is a commitment my husband and I made to eachother like a dear in the headlights! or who’s on first. what’s on second and Etc..

    One of us is overwight and has struggled with fad diets (and considdering LAP BAND Surgery, while the other can eat every processed food and loose wheight!

    Im getting older and love food and have always eaten in moderation many times a day. I oftain wake up in the midle of the night for a feeding.

    I get comments like ..Uou should eat more, your too thin……yet I cant tell anyone that they may not want to have that Baked Potato while eating that Protien Steak because they are too fat! NOT SOCIALY ACCEPTABLE!

    Give me the goods on the average weekly shopping list Organis or not.

    Half the battle is to be able to marry my time in prep (obviously the first couple of weeks will be a struggle utill I get into the routein).

    Money asside……..

    Does anyone know how detailed the meal plan is and if the food is accessable (or too specific in Brand).

    Give me a life in the first week of the program.

    • Artemisia

      The meal plans are absolutely exact if you want to use them, but you can work out your own as well. I don’t pre-cook everything, although I do keep leftovers from the night before to help with Protein preparation. Cool thing is, you’ll probably eat more on BD than before, and still lose weight. The community is also quite good, as people help one another with issues from where to source stuff to how to convince partners or cook for kids. First week you might just change one thing in your diet, so it’s up to you how hard or expensive it is.

  • john

    exercise and eat non processed food. Yes, it is that simple. I agree, no one ‘chooses’ to be overweight, but a little education (dont eat processed foods!) and disipline (dont eat processed foods!) is all it truely takes with some activity. Send ME your 47 dollars for that education, as in anything, the ‘disipline’ part is on each of us.

  • merna fontes

    Afer logging off Iam not able to return to site to obtain my meal log.

    • lisa

      i also cannot get on after watching video to join, did they go out of business, any suggestions, thank you

      • TarynBD

        We didn’t go out of business! Please contact the Beyond Diet Customer Service team. They will be more than happy to help you! All methods of contact can be found here:

      • ted

        I just gave it a try and the order form works fine for me, so it looks like everything is fine, perhaps they were having some website issues.

    • Marilyn miller

      Me too – I can’t access the home page

  • Nathan

    I’m in high school and my anatomy class final was to research a topic in which the student found interesting. I found dieting interesting and was a little overweight. when I came across the beyond diet program I began to research it. I was amazed with what I found and I even wrote a 24 page essay about it. I even took it a step farther and tried the program for a month. I lost over 20 pounds in that amount of time. I continued and I dropped 47 pounds in 5 months and looked great. I gurantee that this program works and has changed my life drastically. I’m healthier than ever and I finally can see my abs, my teacher was really impressed and so was I. ;)

    • Michelle

      Nathan! YAY!!! I just read your post. I’m so happy that the program is working for you! I’ve been on the program for only 2 weeks and have lost two pounds (I don’t need to lose much weight – just want to eat better and change my lifestyle). Today I feel like I’m buzzing with energy (not from a sugar high) and WANT to eat well and work out.

  • Cyndi

    I am a member of the BD community, and the education each member receives about healthy eating and living is invaluable. How many out there understand the importance of the Glycemic index and how to incorporate the glycemic index into your life for a more stable and healthy blood sugar level? These are the lessons that Nutritionists get college degrees in, and we are being educated in it for $47. I’m a believer, and more importantly, I’m dropping weight (not at record pace, but at a slow steady healthy pace) AND I’m NEVER hungry and have not had a serious craving. I’m sure that this program can help many who have “dieted” and regained. This is not a “diet”. It’s my new way of life!

    • Elizabeth

      Does this program only work with organic foods? Can any one tell me.

    • Elizabeth

      I really like your comment. It is very encouraging, and I am going to give it a try, hoping to eat better with out cravings.

  • Leslie Campbell

    Pay $47 for what?! Eat clean organic no processed foods and work out… It’s simple…don’t make others rich for nothing

    • Cyndi

      No, it’s not simple. If it were, no-one would have a weight problem. After all, how many people do you know that are obese because they have CHOSEN it. Have they not tried to lose weight on more than one occasion and failed? If it’s so easy, why doesn’t every dieter succeed? $47 one-time fee is a bargain for the knowledge gained in this program, and I don’t ever have to pay a monthly fee, or buy program meals. I learn to eat healthy from my local markets. This program is fabulous!

  • Johnny

    Having watched the video it seems calorie counting is probably the least important factor of the diet plan. It’s mostly about avoiding foods that cause your body to create insulin which triggers it to store fat. I agree with what they’re saying but I also think that, with a little research, most people can design their own diet based on the Beyond Diet principles. It’s not rocket science. And for those who don’t want to spend the time and effort doing that research then $47 for a lifetime membership isn’t going to put them in the poor house. You can spend that much on a single night at the movies.

  • Mildrd Crocker

    I joined and paid for the diet but after logging off, i cannot reach my food log when I logged back on thia AM. How do I get there so I can start recoeding my food intake?

  • Allie

    Google-How to determine your metabolic type, youll get tons of free ways to figure it out. What bothers me most about all this, is theres no before and after shots?!?

    • SusieQ

      Most before and after pics are airbrushed, photoshopped or doctored in some way. My friend has already lost 30 lbs on this diet, and eats like crazy.

  • Allie

    You can access the website for recipes and other videos from Isabel without paying the fee. Also, you can get other info from their facebook page. Check out the my fitness pal app for counting caloric intake. Also, check out Shakeology, ive been on it for a year now and feel great! Its quick, easy, and very healthy. An easy substitute for any meal.

  • Jen

    I think everyone should use their common sense. If it has multiple ingredients or ingredients you can’t pronounce then it probably isn’t that good. If you feel like crap after you eat it then don’t eat it. Eat slowly and drink water while you eat. Make sure that you only eat until you’re comfortable not stuffed or full. If you sit on you butt all day eat less then if you work a labour job or exercise daily. Cleanses are a joke. YOu have Kidneys and a Liver for that. Just eat the right foods. Stress releases those nasty store fat hormones and can make give you all sorts of digestive issues, so do what you can to alleviate it. Yoga, not procrastinating (that’d be me…all the time), visit friends, go for walks, whatever it takes to chill out and relax. At the end of the day it takes a lot of hard work or anorexia to look like movie stars and there is no ACTUAL proof that being a stick figure is healthy. Find a weight you feel comfortable in. Every year there’s new diet fads and statistics and studies done to tell us what…that health is ambiguous. What defines healthy? What does that look like and at what point does something stop being healthy? There’s this arbitrarily assigned number or size or level in our heads that says healthy. How realistic is it??

  • Trish

    Is there anyone that has had success with this diet? Please share!!

  • badmeary

    A scam is anything that sells you something and not delivering as promised. They seem to do that, But they’re


    • ted

      I disagree, there are many good plans that are all online based these days. In fact, that is the trend. ALL diets printed or online have disclaimers that state “results will vary”.

  • Kim

    @ Taryn BD

    Is it true? Do you join and then get asked to pay more for tips?

    • Ann

      No, you do not pay more for tips. No this is not a scam.. You get free coaching advice. It is a very healthy way of eating. You get the manual a plan for eating to figure your own meals and a day to day plan all made for you. Plus a lot of recipes

  • Veronique

    I read that Beyond Diet is a scam. This was reported on Any advice?

    • ted

      I don’t see how it’s a scam.. It offers dieters information and help for a fee. No different than any other diet service out there.

  • Brad

    Hi I am in Australia does anyone know if the all the foods in the Beyond Diet are available down here? I must admit I never go to health food shops or organic markets ect.
    Would be interested to here from anyone who knows.


  • Teri

    I just watched the video and am also looking for reviews. I have recently lost 25 pounds after a health scare mostly by eliminating the sugar (hidden and obvious) from my diet. I’m looking for more options in my eating and like what I have seen in this one. I have to be honest and say that I probably will not be buying raw milk or all the organic foods. I, too, need things to be easy and fast as well as healthy. I believe there is enough good guidance and information here that it will help me continue to become a healthier person. The $47 lifetime (I’m not one to buy the “extras”) is less than I probably spend each month on coffee, so I don’t see the money as much of a factor. Wish me luck and I’ll report back.

    • Reena

      how’s it working out for you?

  • melissa

    I too saw the ad and thought wow it sounds great and the help and structure they offer is very appealing b/c not everyone can or will support you especially if they don’t know what you are going through so having support is a great upside to the $47 fee (I am sure they want to push other products) but I’m not sure if I want to spend the money but i do need structure and support.
    At the same time I checked out many different websites and reviews and I was sold… until I came across Web Md which pretty much blew most of the theories out of the water so now I’m confused… I’m sure it works for some but Its not the first time I’ve seen the metabolism thing shot down. I haven’t seen enough information to persuade me either way… still not sure. Any other user reviews for or against it will be very helpful. Thank You for any reviews on this system.

  • Roxana

    I just started this program and think that this is what I have been looking for. I have previously lost weight on protein shake programs and was wanting to reach a desirable weight so that I can eat more than one meal a day and 2 protein shakes. One very important thing about the program is the metabolic type that determines the allowable servings for your type. This could be the reason that the gentleman eating such foods has not lost weight. It could be the serving size or that you are eating the wrong kind of foods for your type. I am always looking at ways to get healthier. Organic food does seem to have more flavor and is expensive. The one supplement that is recommended is krill fish oil. I am looking forward to seeing some results with the anti-inflammatory effects that it should have.

  • Jodie

    I just watched the video as well, natural ingredients make sense when they talk about liver functions. I had quit drinking for 1 year and lost 25lbs naturally. I couldnt drive (yes got in trouble) i didn’t go to fast food places(grocery store 2 time a month) walking to bus stop/riding bike to work. so these three factors made me loose weight! No Alch, excercise and eating right was the key for me.
