    Simply fantastic! (From a life-long healthy eater who ALWAYS thinks about food!), January 4, 2011

    Cinch is an absolute GODSEND. I cannot say enough good things about how it’s taken my otherwise “fit and healthy” lifestyle to the next level, one which I’d never thought possible!! Rather than being a “diet”, it’s really just a new outlook altogether. THANK YOU, CINCH!

    For most/all of my 31 years, I’ve led an active and healthy lifestyle and have LOVED food. I LOVE to eat, but I also love feeling fit and healthy – and LOOKing that way! Accordingly, of course I am always conscious of what I am eating or am NOT eating or should be eating. Furthermore, I am a busy New York City professional. I don’t have alot of time (or kitchen space!) to track down and keep elaborate ingredients and fancy meals, and I’m often pulled into work / social meals out.

    At times, all of this can be exhausting, stressful, and can perpetuate the sort-of “It’s ok; maybe I ate too much of [XYZ unhealthy food]; I don’t do it all the time AND I’ll work it off!!” mentality. I’d feel anxious when at a dinner party, faced with platters of rich, indulgent foods and desserts, knowing I’d probably indulge a bit (or alot!) too much, relying on the next day’s grueling gym session: “It’s OK! I’ll work it off!” I’d say!

    Cinch provided the missing piece to my lifestyle: Absolute control. For the first time, I feel totally in control of what I eat, all the time. I never am afraid of a craving getting the better of me. I don’t HAVE “bad” cravings anymore. Pizza office lunch? No problem! Free platter of brownies!? Who cares?! Celebratory dinner and drinks at hip downtown restaurant?! A breeze.

    Without my even realizing what had happened, by the end of the detox, Cinch had completely reset my taste buds. The 5-day “detox” may seem strict, but nothing could be more worthwhile!

    Now, I crave a Larabar or frozen raspberries with almond butter. Seriously. It feels like I’m feeding my body just what it needs. Cinch re-circuits you in a way that just feels natural and RIGHT.

    As an aside, my husband – a fit, regular guys’ guy – eats everything I buy and prepare and says at least several times per week (totally unprovoked by me!) how he LOVES the feeling of “eating really clean”. (He’s not fully versed in “Cinch”-ease.) He comments on how immediately he feels the effect of a few less “clean” meals and craves getting back to our Cinch-inspired home-cooking.

    Finally, I’ve always been a relatively “fit” person who, as mentioned, would balance eating indulgences with extra exercise. Given the compliments I’ve received over the past several weeks, during which I have not significantly changed my exercise routines, I realize that the little push over the clff I needed was a diet clean-up. And that’s what “Cinch” did for me. For all you gym rats who justify some “sloppy” eating with your workouts, you deserve the maximum benefits of your athletic efforts! Cinch will really allow you to see and feel results you’ve not imagined.

    How did I find “Cinch”? My friend dropped three jeans sizes on the plan, and while she was starting out, she talked about feeling so SATISFIED by the food, about no longer feeling OBSESSED with food. That sounded great to me! And it’s no exaggeration; it’s just what Cinch does. It’s the best non-diet eating “overhaul” you could imagine. You owe it to yourself!

    I got Cinched!, January 2, 2011

    Cinch! started out as diet and then easily became a happily lifestyle choice. Growing up, I consumed at least 2 soda cans per day, ate tons of processed foods, and would have constant energy dips throughout the day. I was nervous to try Cinch! because I had zero concept of nutrition, barely prepared meals, and nothing just seemed to work for me.

    Cynthia does a great job explaining how this plan nourishes your body, the long & short term health effects, exactly what to do, and why. Ever do a diet and think “this makes no sense to me, but I’m desperate to do lose weight?” I sure did! And then a few weeks later I would always fall right off because I didn’t understand the reasoning behind the method.

    The book has meal plans for 30 days. I followed the meal plans exactly for the first week in order to completely reset my body and discover new tastes. The 5 piece puzzle gives you an unlimited number of choices that allow you to cater meals to your liking. My old habits and cravings disappeared within the first few days! I immediately realized that my body functions perfectly when I treat it right. Cinch! helped me understand the difference between mental and physical hunger. It’s a huge relief to not be constantly thinking about food. Food used to consume my mind more than my mouth!

    I know it can come off as cheesy – but Cinch! really was the best decision I ever made. I lost a significant amount of weight (I’ve gone from a size 10 to a size 4) and I don’t feel restricted or deprived. It feels amazing that I’ve shrunk so much but I don’t feel like I’m “on a diet”. I usually eat out with friends about 4 times a week. At work, I bring my own lunch and snacks in order to save money. I got rid of the junk food in my desk and stocked it with healthy options. I also keep larabars and nuts in my purse so I always have something on the go. Cinch! became a lifestyle for me because it easily fits in my life. It’s super easy to keep maintain and when you feel lighter, healthier and confident then trust me – you will never want to go back!!

    Cinch! Review-Simply Stacie, December 29, 2010

    This review is from: Cinch!: Conquer Cravings, Drop Pounds, and Lose Inches (Paperback)
    Cinch! is a new diet book by author Cynthia Sass, M.P.H, R.D. It is designed to help you “conquer cravings, drop pounds and lose inches.” What initially drew me to this book is that the author co-wrote one of my favorite nutrition/diet books “The Flat Belly Diet.” Once I started reading Cinch! I was drawn to the fact that this is not a “one diet fits all” book but rather it allows you to follow the program in the way that suits you best so that you have a better opportunity to succeed and meet your goals. For example, Cinch! starts with a very structured and effective 5 day “Fast Forward” menu which essentially tells you exactly what to eat and drink for the first five days to really kick start your efforts. There is even a helpful quiz that helps you determine if this would be a good fit for you or not. In my case, I decided not to do the 5 day “Fast Forward” because it is much easier for me not to follow a structured plan when I am cooking for a family of five, including three little ones. Instead, I utilized numerous components of the “Fast Forward” and went straight to the “Core” program.

    Note: Though I do agree with the previous review post that the Five Day Options are very limited…it is a simple choice to skip it and go straight to the core plan that has many different meal options that are quite do-able for real families. As I stated, I skipped it altogether and had success eating meals that I adapted from the core suggestions.

    In my opinion, one of the most attractive parts of the Cinch! methodology is that it is written by a nutritionist and health educator and it includes healthy and whole foods such as yogurt, eggs, turkey, lentils, fruits and my personal favorite dark chocolate! It even includes a little SASS…..What is that? SASS stands for “slimming and satiating seasonings.” These are the five categories of SASS that you will use for the first 30 days (and beyond) and includes vinegar, citrus juice and zest, hot peppers (yum!), tea (it gets better and better) and herbs and spices. I have always loved to season my food with vinegar, hot sauce and a variety of other seasonings so it is wonderful that it is actually encouraged as part of my eating program.

    I was very impressed with the Cinch! core program that includes delicious recipes such as Black Bean Tacos with Cilantro-Jalapeno Guacamole. This recipe was a big hit with my husband and little ones too as it tasted simply fantastic. In the morning, I am not typically a big eater so the Strawberry Cardamom Smoothie with Cashew Oatmeal was a great way to start the day and gave me lots of energy to keep up with my kids. My children were thrilled that Cinch! includes lots of healthy fruits including grapes and berries and they were able to enjoy healthy snacks along with me during the day. I also liked taking the “My Size” quiz to perfectly customize the core to my body which worked out really well for me.

    The Cinch! Core program really is an all inclusive healthy eating guide for anyone looking to find new inspiration for their diet or to lose weight and since I am seeking to do both it is a perfect fit for me. By following the Cinch! program you can possibly “lose up to 7 pounds in the first 5 days and 15 pounds in 30 days.” Now remember that I chose to skip the initial 5 day “Fast Forward” but I have still lost 8 pounds in the 19 days that I have followed the Cinch! eating plan. I am well on my way to losing those last 30 post pregnancy pounds which have stubbornly followed me for the last three years. I feel satiated, energetic and honestly better than I have in a long time.
