UPDATE: Boot Camp In A Bottle – 7 Day Detox

UPDATE: Boot Camp In A Bottle – 7 Day Detox

BootCamp_Selects_JS-047

UPDATE: The owner of Boot Camp has now responded to all the customers who have commented below. I have published his response in the comments. Please do read before purchasing anything from this company.

I am all for a January detox. After spending Christmas in Italy, eating and drinking my way through copious amounts of rich cheeses, wine, meats and Panettone, whilst visiting a very chilly Venice and the beautiful Belluno (with a bit of skiing in between), I am definitely in need of losing a few pounds.

I jumped on the scales when I got back to England and was pushing 9 st 4Ibs…ouch. I’m only 5’ 4’’ so even a few extra pounds really shows. I was approached by Boot Camp before Christmas to trial the product, with a group of others, so I thought there was no better time to give it a go.

BootCamp_Selects_JS-039

With the help of fitness consultant Ross Fleming, who devised a series of gentle daily exercises for us, we spent a day with the Boot Camp team finding out more about the product.

BootCamp_Selects_JS-269

Boot Camp In A Bottle is essentially a food replacement weight loss programme, but what I really like about the product is that it is made using 100% natural ingredients (i.e. no added sugar) and gives your body all the nutrients it requires for the day. So many food supplements or weight loss programmes are piled full of sugar and additives, so I’m not a fan at all. But, if you’re looking for a quick weight loss or detox solution to squeeze into that dress and, like me, you don’t want to end up feeding your body with loads of additives and sugars then Boot Camp In A Bottle is a great solution.

Before Boot Camp!

Before Boot Camp!

How It Works?

Boot Camp comes in powder form and you mix a few teaspoons with a glass of water to create the drink.  A tub costs just £39.99, so it won’t break the bank, and it should last for about 7 days. The powder contains natural psyllium seed and husks, which expand in your stomach to fill you up and as the drink has no calories it forces your body to start burning its fat cells. A lot of weight loss programmes say the drink “fills you up” and it really doesn’t, but what is fantastic about Boot Camp is it really does. My 6’ 2’’ boyfriend gave it a try for 3 days and he managed to keep on track, so much so that all the women in his office went out to buy the product because they were amazed that he hadn’t eaten over the 3 days.

TIP: If you’re not looking to lose lots of weight, I’d recommend maybe just replacing one or two meals with the drink, then having a healthy and low GI dinner. Possibly chicken or fish with steamed vegetables and new potatoes.

How Did I Do?

I found it really strange at first. I wasn’t hungry as such, but I missed the action of eating. After the first couple of days though, I started to feel really great – my energy levels rocketed and because I was feeding my body with all the nutrients it needed for the day, rather than putting strain on it with coffee, alcohol and junk foods, my body felt light and clean and my skin/eyes so much clearer. After the 7 days I jumped on the scales and I was 8 st 11Ilbs, I’d lost half a stone in a week!

    The ‘weight loss’ you experienced was most certainly water. I think that your article showed a lack of understanding of biology and diets and was very irresponsible at best. The product is essential soluble fibre, (which costs £7 for a 5 month supply) so the cosat of this product is astronomical, not something that you managed to assertain through your ‘Trial’ of the product. Shame you couldnt look at it objectively or scientifically. It has no calories (or nasty sugar as you pointed out) so basically it is like drinking water with a bit of fibre in – that costs £39.99!! Your repeating of the completely incorrect slogan that “Because it has no calories it forces the body to burn fat cells’ is completely and utterly medically false and its incredible that you would simply repeat that ridiculous claim without investigating its truth (or lie).

    Please read my review of the product and instead of mis-informing people (Your readers??) with confusion and false conclusions peppered with incorrect slogans from profiteering fly by night pharma companies selling starvation, write something that helps people, not makes money out of dieters misery.
    PS GREAT after shots…. really tell the difference !!

    Just reviewed this product and the very easy to reach conclusion is this…….. Instead of paying £39.99 for this product…. why dont you simply drink water? Because it amounts to exactly the same thing. Unfortunately, its seems as if this is ANOTHER instance of a fly by night pharma Company plugging into the seemingly insatiable public desire for a magic diet pill to miraculously magic away all their fat gains. The Emperors New Clothes anyone? The explanation of the science behind the product and how it works was simply laughable, as was the non listing of the ingredients. Also all of the comments on here are clearly stooges, and pretty obvious ones at that. “After waiting seven months for my bottle” – and “Thank you for my free bottle after i couldnt get hold of the product as it had sold out” Haha… how we laughed!! Less is more people, less is more!! YES you will get an immediate ‘weight loss’ if you replace meals with effectively a calorie free food, (sludge) however, this will have a detrimental effects on both your appetite and your basal Metabolic Rate, which will become affected by what you are doing to it (effectively starving it). Undereating in this ill-advised manner will cause your body to release huge numbers of ‘hunger hormones’ – You become a food whore, desperate to eat at all costs, usually resulting in overeating and causing weight GAIN. As well as this your body will start recognizing the deficit in calories as starvation and will slowing its BMR and starting cannibalising muscle tissue as it seeks to become more efficient in order to survive. Your body then releases fewer fat releasing & fat burning enzymes which results in your body becoming LESS efficient at burning fat for fuel, defeating the whole object. As well as this, your moods will change because of the lack of food and I guess it doesnt taste too great, as a few people have pointed out. It seems like a no-brainer. The dietitian that you have got on board advocating this product should look in the mirror as it has ZERO health or fat loss merits, unless the subject is clinically obese of course, when shock starvation dieting like this has some merits as there is so much stored energy to lose. However, If you are simply a layman trying to ‘Lose a few pounds for your Mexican holiday’ (Lol) then please employ the most proven method…. Namely, drop your calorie intake to 20% under your required daily individual rate….. and then exercise more and be more active in your daily life….. There’s no easy way people, other than an easy way to chuck your money away on rubbish that is…… no magic pill, just watching what you eat and exercising and being more active…. You’ll be surprised what you can achieve!!

        I have tried this and I will do anything to shed the pounds but this is something else, You dont want it it is disgusting and thickens to jelly as u drink it. Dont bother honestly. It has a choking warning on it. Tried to make jellies it was like vomit. Please dont buy it very few tolerate it!

    • Heather Sloan

      I too am waiting on an order I placed and paid for on 6th September, have emailed and whilst I got a response it was an empty promise as I still have not received my order or refund as requested. I am escalating my dispute through paypal

        Hi,

        I have had the same problems, ordered on 03 September 2013 – got an email saying there was a delay and the order would be delivered on 30 September 2013.

        I am still waiting and despite phone calls, emails and messages through their website I have been ignored and have had no luck

        I really don’t know what to do now

    • Jeanna

      Hi Erica.
      This is a scam. How sad that this still persists. I didn’t pay viamPayPal unfortunately so have contacted my bank to report and see if I can claim money back. Also needed to report that this site has my bank details and is fraudulant.
      I sincerely hope nobody else gets conned. I wonder why the so called “professionals” in this article and on their website have authorised the use of their names and credentials. I will be writing to all of them to voice my concerns and disgust.

      reply
      • Hello to all, I too had ordered and paid for 2 months supply on 15 sept and it still isnt here after only one email telling me it would be here on set 30th also I took an unpaid as I’m self employed day off at a huge cost to wait in all day for it, I’ve emailed and calked millions of times still no reply. But my brother had actually got his after 3 weeks and he lost half stone in a month, doing just one meal per night with powder, and still drinking beer all weekend. The key is to drop slowly and it’s likely to be longer lasting. But he said it does fill u up and that’s how it works. But so does drinking a pint of tap water before a meal, works too and for free and healthy. I wish I hadn’t ordered this now and will now try and get my money back.

        I ordered a bottle for myself and a bottle for a friend. The money was taken from my account straight away, back in September, and I’ve not got the product. I’ve left endless messages and emailed repeatedly and nothing. This man is basically a thief. Don’t buy it.

    • Davina

      Boot Camp In A Bottle is a SCAM……. I do not believe the reviews given by those that say they have tried it as there are FAR MORE comments on various sites that state the product was NEVER delivered and no refunds issued.

      DO NOT BUY.

        I ordered the product over a month and a half ago and still haven’t received it. I have tried calling several times and never get an answer, left a message but no returned call. I have also e-mailed several times and again no reply. I did receive an e-mail about 3 weeks ago telling me I would receive it on Monday of this week and on Friday I still haven’t received it! I have again continued to try and contact them with no reply. I too think this is a con!

      • Dean Jackson

        I ordered the product after speaking to James from the company and he assured me the product would be posted 2 weeks later. I never received anything and all emails and calls ignored.
        They are no longer at the address the company is registered at and have been reported to companies house for moving without notifying them and I have also opened a case with Paypal.
        The company owner is named David Cox , and his profile can be found on Facebook and Linkdin.

    Tried BCIAB didn’t taste bad but i couldn’t get over the consistency like drinking water and flour mixed got half way through a glass and was sick unfortunately it’s not for me

    reply
  • Jess

    Hi Kimberley, thanks for posting, I’m sorry to hear you didn’t get on well with BCIAB. I thought it worth mentioning that the best way to make the drink is to have 2-3 heaped teaspoons of the powder mixed/shaken/whisked vigorously for approximately 20 seconds in a large glass approx 350ml) of water.

    It’s also important to drink it immediately, before the main ingredient, psyllium (which doesn’t dissolve as stated on the label) expands and thickens in the water. This is what makes you feel full.

    If you’ve got any other questions at all please feel free to give us a call on 0800 644 1864 or email us at sales@bootcampfoods.

    To all, I’ve read a few reviews on the product and I’ve been using it. So if you’re worried about getting conned out of your money, don’t worry.. customer service is excellent and I also had the opportunity to do some research feedback for the product but unfortunately I got called in to work. These reviews are like everything… we all are different so not every product will work the same for everyone. However, with that said, the above review against the product is not enough information to influence my decision. The ingredients in the product speak for themselves but I’d like to know just how much of each is in a bottle. I’ve done some research on the ingredients as well as in process of more research and so far I’ve NOT found anything that would discourage me from this. A bit pricey yes but from a personal experience worth the money.
    I went on holiday for 2 and a half weeks to the states where I was using this only in the evening and at night as I wasn’t sure about it. I was eating good meals, McDonalds breakfast every day and often I’d go out to eat. In that 2 and a half weeks I didn’t lose much but I didn’t put any on either and the last time I did this I put on 10 pounds over 2 years ago. Now that I’ve been using it since being back I weigh in at 200 pounds and decreasing. Average about 1-2 pounds per day weight loss and that’s with a few small extras during the day (tea, fruit juice, milk, etc.
    Overall the ingredients in the product are very impressive to say the least, have great health/ detoxing benefits and the taste is good…but you do need to drink it fast and not watch it as you drink it.
    This is certainly the best weight loss product I’ve used so far. It’s not magic, but it does work.

    Will report back with findings 🙂

  • Paul

    The product cetegorically does not work.I started it this morning and took my 1st batch at 7.00, by 7.45 I was ready to chew my arm off I was so hungry… so I took another batch… and another at 10.00. By 10.30 I was heading to the sandwich shop as I needed to eat so badly. Maybe it’s my metabolism but there is no way I could substitute this stuff for a meal let alone do the 7 day full hardcore substitution! Money back please!
    Time to bring in plan B and burn off more calories that I intake by doing some exercise!There’s no easy fix in life, you have to work for your goals.

  • JoJo

    Hello,
    I am very sceptical about this. I am 28 a healthy eating freak, go to the gym , healthy normal BMI size 12 . I really really want to loose 7kg . And simply can’t :/ sitting at work all day doesn’t help.
    I can see why it might work . I don’t think it’s healthy to put your body into ”starvation mode” for a week or more. but I guess if I eat healthy breakfast and LC dinner and the Boot camp in between, that will cut off quite a bit of calories too. So I am quite tempted … I think I’ll give it a go.

  • Lillith

    I am looking really forward to trying this, I used to fast a lot last year but found it very tiring so am hoping this will make me feel more amazing than just water. I only have one question, I go to the gym when you said a gentle exercise did you feel faint at all or did you feel like you just ate a meal? I will blog my progress and put my review in a comment when I receive and trial the product.

    Looked at bottle for over a week now, but felt I needed a week with no distractions so hey ho on Monday the 9/9/13 i started yuk what a horrible drink but I persevered and got through Monday, oh went to supermarket and bought some low calorie soups . Tuesday I looked at bottle again and thought there must be a nicer tasting stuff than this. wallpaper glue came to mind as I gulged my way through Tuesday..still having water and low calorie soup…success got on scales this morning Wednesday and lost 5lb…think this was due to colon cleanse, feeling very cold today having to wrap up in blanket..will keep you posted how i get on.

    Can I just say that both my husband and I have used the product and its great, we wanted to loose a few pounds before we went on are holiday and I managed to get hold of our Boot Camp just 2 weeks before our holiday my husband lost 16 pounds and I lost 12 pounds
    we had one drink for breakfast and one for lunch then a large salad with a jacket potato and chicken for our evening meal
    and we did not skimp on taste as we added fat free salad dressings , coleslaw , humos ,and anything else we fancied we mixed 2 teaspoons of Boot Camp with a tall glass of water and found it to be enough to last us until our evening meal
    we had a great holiday with lots of food and drink and knew that we would have put on a few pounds but we got straight back on the Boot Camp and the extra pounds have gone
    I have to say I don’t like the taste but the product is great and we would recommend it but we just needs to be able to get hold of it again as we are running out

I contacted them online chat, was told they would check with account but will get back to me via email on Monday… no reply.. they quote $39.99 on the US website but just charge you whatever in great british pounds and then not bother to reply to your emails….. daylight robbery.

    Hi Emily

    I had high hopes for this product but like Holly have received the same awful customer service. Just posting on here and anywhere else where there is a review advising people not to part with their money on this. The company have done the shameful thing of removing their Facebook page and limiting their twitter as well as not answering the phone or emails. I have never known anything like it. If they don’t have the product and do not see themselves having any stock in the near future they should stop marketing it and refund those of us who have been waiting a ridiculous amount of time. At least then they would be able to hold their heads up and try again. Sorry to rant on your review Emily….I thought it was good and you look great! Best wishes Ali

I have told them I am going to have to go back to Paypal to report them and get my money back. I am going to do all I can to have this company blacklisted as they appear to be unable to fulfil their legal duties as they have taken my money but failed to deliver an already paid for product.

      I placed my order on the 21st August and spoke with James in Customer Service. After some persistent chasing he advised that there was an ingredient which was not approved by the Foods Standards Agency hence the delay but I would be receiving my goods beginning of September. Almost 2 months later no joy and no chance of getting in touch with them. Always use a credit card or paypal when you do not know the company as you will be protected. Definitely a scam.

    I too am another unhappy customer, it seems that this is an issue for many people. I placed two orders on 12th and 14th September, assured 10 day delivery. Nothing was received, then assured delivery 30th September – nothing. I have called and e-mailed, still nothing delivered or anyone been in contact. I would advise people not to purchase this product until the supply issues have been solved – if in fact this is the true problem!!

    I also paid weeks ago and have received nothing, was promised it would arrive on the 30th September but as everyone else knows it did not come. I have also asked Paypal for my money back but feel a bit gutted as I really wanted to lose weight and this sounded ideal. I also saw that they had taken down their Facebook page and there is no response from emails. I hope we all manage to at least get our money back, it will probably end up on Don’t get done get Dome! 🙂

    I placed an order on 30 September, and still haven’t received the product. I have emailed the company, so fingers crossed this speeds things up. Hopefully, my Mastercard will cover this if the product doesn’t arrive. It seems odd that some people have good reviews of the company whilst others have had such a negative experience.

    Ordered on 23rd August and initially received a response when I emailed a couple of weeks later saying issue with supply. Then another email saying I would receive it on 30th Sept. Nothing and no replies to subsequent emails. Stupidly believed them and didn’t make a claim through payapal in time so can’t claim my money back, though I did still put in a dispute so that paypal are aware of this company. I would suggest if you have paid through paypal keep an eye on the time frame of 45 days, and make that claim. I have 2 customer based business’s one online and one physical, and would NEVER treat my customers this way, I can’t for a second believe this business is legitimate or they would be bending over backwards by now to keep their customers happy.

    This can only be a scam as I ordered on the 15th August, they they kept me in dialogue saying product would arrive (just missing one key ingredient etc) Got sick of not been able to contact them after numerous excuses then no answers so contacted PayPal and have been advised I am out of my 45 day period so they cannot help I have advised trading standards and they are investigating. As to getting my money back or product I assume both gone.

    Hi,
    With regards to boot camp in a bottle David Cox has closed all social media accounts at the moment and is being investigated by trading standards and companies house is looking in to the way the company has been set up as there are discrepancies with false addresses being used.
    He has scammed lots of people by accepting funds and not supplied goods and then ignores all efforts to contact him.
    I have added a couple of links I found whilst researching him the one shows him and his children making the product in his kitchen,,,,,,,,SHOCKING.

    Regards Dean.

      Hi Sarah, £39.99 isn’t a small amount, and your right to be furious , as am I 🙁 its a lot of money to spend on false hopes. And just think how much money has been made from every ones £39.99 put together….

      I requested my credit card company to refund me under the cashback rules and today had a letter to say that the money had be put back onto my credit card account, so anybody who has paid by credit card could do the same. I also contacted citizens advice and they informed me they have passed my complaint to trading standards. I am now doing 5:2 and losing weight that way!!

  • Kirsty

    I too have been scammed by the company, paid the money no product has arrived over 2 months ago, all emails, phone calls ignored surely the police should be investigating fraud. We should all contact the newspapers as hopefully with enough publicity they will be charged with gaining money by deception!!
    Please no matter how desperate you are to lose weight do not order this product, you will not receive it and the comment stating their customer service is good is clearly someone involved in the scam!

      Dear Bootcamp,

      If you’re going to apologize, then I suggest you at least get the phone number right!!! It’s one digit too short.

        I ordered 2 bottles on the 10th of October and have heard nothing since except that my payment has been taken. I have called frequently but no-one is there…I called into their “offices” last week and the security guy told me they are no longer there (and are being chased for unpaid rent). Come on guys; do the right thing…stop taking new orders and contact everyone with honesty NOW.

    I have been scammed too, ordered way back in august, item never received! Had some response by email from ‘James’ at first then after they told me a courier had delivered it (they hadn’t) they said they were in dispute with them! Since then I have heard nothing, repeated requests for a refund by email were ignored, and no answer or reply by telephone ever! Disgusting, they should be on watchdog to avoid further conning people out of money!

    To those who lost money from buying bootcamp in a bottle, you might get some satisfaction from knowing that the CEO has admitted to multiple counts of fraud and is currently on remand awaiting sentencing – he’s been in prison for 7 months now. He’s likely going away for a bunch of years.
