I am so torn.
I have spent hours literally scouring the Internet, trying to find evidence of ANYONE who has completed the protocol through Alisa Vitti’s website.
The result? Nothing. Nothing at all.
Supposedly thousands of women have completed it and are success stories, and yet I can’t even find a YouTube video of anyone describing their journey while on it. Considering how you can find a review of the $5 toothpaste you buy, it seems unrealistic that not a single person of the thousands would document their own journey.
I personally believe in what Alisa is preaching, which is why I am so interested in the protocol. But I am a full-time, budget-conscious college student who is completely supporting myself, so $300 is not chump change to me in the slightest. That is half of my rent. One to two textbooks. Food for a month and a half. You get the picture.
My thing is, I am a skeptic by nature. I read reviews of anything I possibly can before buying it. But once I see solid and consistent evidence, then I am golden. The fact that I can’t find any of that in regards to the protocol truly worries me. It’s not that I don’t think her methods work; what I am concerned about is the program’s worth. Are the services offered actually worth the price tag, or is it something I could essentially navigate on my own, with a few worksheets thrown in the mix.
Reviews on her book Woman Code are the closest thing I have found, but even then only one person said she had done the protocol and gave no details. Honestly, that could have been written by someone who works for Alisa. If I hadn’t seen evidence of that on the internet time and time again I wouldn’t assume that, but I’ve been burned.
Back to the book: the #1 complaint is that a lot of the book is fluff and self-promotion. And what is she promoting? The protocol and her services/guides/etc. that are offered through the website. This takes me back to my need for real, human evidence.
I’ve discussed this endlessly with my boyfriend, exhausting all possibilities and truly attempting to give her the benefit of the doubt. The website has only been around for less than 7 years. Maybe she’s only just now getting traction and reaching more people. Like any business, the goal is to make money and I completely get that. But why is she pushing, pushing, pushing and all the while saying it’s worked for so many others, yet not a soul has peeped about it on the Internet. And trust me.. I have searched high and low, with a variety of different combinations and search tactics.
I just want proof. If it’s that wonderful and effective of a program, I can’t believe no one would write about it.
So here I am. No one may read it, and that’s fine. I’m going to use this blog as a way to document my nutritional journey regardless. But if anyone has any answers, please feel free to comment or contact me. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
