The P.I.N.K Method, which stands for Power, Intensity, Nutrition and “Kardio”, is a 9-week weight loss program designed for women of all ages. It was created by Cynthia Pasquella, a nutritionist, media personality, and author.

According to Pasquella’s official website, the P.I.N.K Method “combines nutrition, psychology and spirituality”. More specifically, the P.I.N.K Method combines intense exercise with a diet low in calories. This diet and fitness program is designed to not only help women lose weight – and lose it fast – but also helps them to tone their muscles, improve their health, and maintain their progress.

The P.I.N.K Method is split into four phases, which consists of four different meal plans and exercises.

The first phase is “PINK Reset”. This is a short-term detox diet phase. This phase can last up to 2 weeks and requires women to dramatically lower their calorie intake (approximately 1,000 calories per day).

The second phase is “PINK Primary”. This is the fat-burning portion of the diet plan. Vegetables, fruit and protein are the primary focus and the first part of the exercise program is introduced.

The third phase is the “PINK 7-Day Shred”. For seven days, followers of this diet are supposed to include a specific nutrient-rich vegetable soup – “Shred Soup” – in their diet. This helps them to avoid hitting weight loss plateaus.

The fourth and final phase, “PINK Preservation”, is a maintenance program that is meant to be followed as a lifestyle to help keep off all the weight that was lost. At this point, women are to keep their daily intake of calories between 1,400 and 1,800.

Women interested in following the P.I.N.K Method can purchase the kit, which comes with a Nutrition Guide and Workbook, exercise DVD’s, and a motivational wristband and certificate. At the time of this review, on Cynthia Pasquella’s official website, a free chapter of the P.I.N.K Method is available via email.

Pros

Women of all ages can benefit from the P.I.N.K Method. It can be followed by diabetics, vegetarians, vegans, and those who have sensitivities to gluten. While the menus are strict, they can be altered. Dieters can choose from a list of other acceptable foods to create their own meals. For those who are not interested in purchasing the kit, there is also P.I.N.K Method International Online, a website where women can join the program for free and access the book content online, as well as stream the workout videos, at no cost. This fitness and diet program can be followed at the dieter’s convenience. Whether a kit is purchased or the diet is followed online, followers are provided with access to a community, trainer support, as well as tracking tools for food and activity. The official website has many testimonials and before and after photos. It appears that those who follow this diet and exercise regimen are likely to lose weight, due to the reduction in calories and intense exercises.

Cons

The P.I.N.K Method is not designed for men. It is also not recommended for pregnant or nursing women and no variation of the program has been created to accommodate women who fit this category. Due to the strict diet and fitness requirements, this program is not recommended for anyone with a health condition. Furthermore, some people may find it difficult to follow. Also, the diet recommends for you to buy organic foods, which may be harder to find and are typically more expensive than their standard equivalent. The P.I.N.K Method is not ideal for beginner dieters. It is strongly recommended that anyone interested in taking part in this weight loss program, first speak with their healthcare provider.
