I have started using Venus factor program for fat loss recently and I am quite convinced with the results. I really admire you struggle against fat loss.

The Venus Factor Weight Loss Program

The diet program is a complete body program for women. It was designed by John Barban in collaboration with Brad Pilon. This is a comprehensive program which seeks to first understand the function of female metabolism and then formulate ways to help the female body lose unnecessary fat and stay in shape. The program involves the nutrition and workouts as way to cut down fat and overall weight. Everything that is included in this program is focused on women specific physiology whereby it helps them attain their desired shape and weight.

How does the Venus Factor Work

The diet plan was able to tap into the master Hormone which controls how the Human body burns fat especially in a woman body. The Hormone is called Leptin, what the designer of this program discovered is that Women have twice the amount of Leptin than men but they are more resistant to this hormone compared to men. This resistance is what causes their body to store up fat leading to weight gain. What John Barban explored are ways in which he could trigger the Leptin in women and make this hormone work at full capacity. One of the biggest problems for women unlike in men is that they are highly resistant to Leptin. Barban was able to find the metabolic override which unlocks the full potential of the fat burning hormone leading to massive reduction in body fat.

What is Included in the Program

The diet program is a complete package which cost a one-time price of $47, the whole package consists of:

  •  The Venus Factor Diet and the weight loss manual; this is a 180 page comprehensive eBook
  • 12 Week workout System: This consists of instructional exercises video and other useful information.
  • Virtual Nutritionist: This is an app that helps in tracking of daily protein and calorie intake.
  • Venus Community: This is an exclusive community where Venus members interact through blogs and forum.
  • Venus Index Podcast: this is a compilation of audio interviews done by other members focusing on their success stories.

All the above are meant to help women understand the food they should be eating, learn how to exercise effectively, be able to track their calorie to ensure they are in shape and also interact with other people in the Venus community to draw inspiration and make new friends. Now let’s dwell into the individual components of the weightloss program to help us understand exactly, how does the Venus Factor works.

The 12 week workout plan

As mentioned earlier these are instructional exercise videos which show step by step exercise methods. This component is probably the most important component of the entire program because the results are visible in the first week. The workout plan serves three important functions, one it helps the female body burn fat much faster, it also helps reduce overall weight and last but not least it helps in the muscle toning and a complete body reshaping. The Venus Workouts are divided into 3 phases each taking 4 weeks. These phases are different in the type of exercises and the intensity of the exercises. The workout exercises can be done at home or at the gym plus they do not require expensive equipment or gadgets. The exercises are simple, some of the exercises included are; lunge, push-ups, squat, T-bend, lateral raise and they are done in set of 3 in 10 repetition. Another important characteristic of the workout program is that it has an easy to follow routine plus it has very effective visual aid. This is resistance training that helps tone the body muscle.

The Venus Factor diet plan

This is the component of the program that deals with the type and amount of food a woman eats. The Venus Index is performed where the calorie intake is calculated in proportion to height, waist and hip measurement. Once this is done then a woman can know the amount and fat-losstype of food to eat. The Venus index will differ from one woman to the next because different women have different bodies size, shape and height. The diet plan help the woman find the right eating formula which meets the body specific needs plus calorie intake. Here a woman understands how the nutrition affects the body and which the healthy foods that a woman should consume are.

The diet plan goes hand in hand with the Venus Virtual Nutritionist. This is the app that helps users effectively track the amount of calories and protein they consume on a daily basis. John designed this software to help users maintain their body shape in relation to their height and measurement. The Virtual nutritionist is integrate into the 12 week workout plan that women will know what to eat in the period to achieve their desired results.

The Venus Community

This is a resource center where women who are in the program or have successfully completed the program meet through forums and blogs. In the Venus community there is real time interaction where women encourages each other and get to fins new friends. The Community is also used as an educational center where women can ask questions and get answers. The main advantage of the Venus community is for moral support and encouragement and you can read real Venus factor reviews.

Venus Index Podcast

This component of the Venus diet program consists of audio interviews and stories of other women who have successfully gone through the program. Here they share their experiences which include the challenges and the shortcoming of the program and how to achieve success. The podcast is a useful tool to gain motivation and other useful information about fat loss program.


The Venus factor program is one of the few weight loss programs that actually work and this can be backed up by the hundreds of women who have taken control of their body and gotten their dream body shape. The PrograVenus factor also offer a 100% money back guarantee if the said results are not achieved in the stipulated timeline.

Another News from our friends: Greater DC Cares Shuts Its Doors


On September 20th 2013, and after 24 years of service to the DC community, Greater DC Cares closed its doors and filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy to dissolve the organization.

Greater DC Cares connects over 40,000 volunteers with over 700 non-profits in the DC Metro area every year through volunteer projects, slimpro bono services, and a board leadership program. It has hosted marquee service days such as 9/11 Day of Remembrance, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Weekend of Service, and Servathon.

Greater DC Cares’ mission has been to improve the capacity of DC area non-profits and create an outstanding volunteer experience. With the downturn in the economy over the last several years, our non-profit has found itself poorly positioned to sustain the funding necessary to support programs across the community. Throughout the years, we have received community support from a wide range of constituents, listed below, for which we are very thankful.

  • Our Sponsors. We want to thank our many sponsors — corporations, foundations, and other non-profits — who have believed in our mission and provided volunteers and financial support. We are also thankful for the guidance and hands-on involvement of these sponsors.
  • Community Non-Profit Organizations. The non-profits we serve are some of the best in the nation. They are led by smart, dedicated, creative and persistent individuals who      wake up every day ready to make a difference in other people’s lives. We are thankful to have helped and supported them over the years.
  • Our Volunteers. Finally, Hands-On Greater DC Cares would be nothing without its volunteers. Washington, DC is an amazing place with so many people committed to service. We are happy to have connected them to great volunteer experiences. We know that their efforts will continue as service comes from the heart, not an organization.

Though we are saddened as we close our doors, we are gladdened by the fact that our mission and values will stay alive and thrive in the DC area as corporations, non-profits, and volunteers continue to work together to improve the health and well-being of our community.
