Fusion Xcelerator is not just one product but an entire weight loss regimen that includes a meal plan, fitness guide, DVD, and recipe books. It’s promoted by the Dutchess of York, who claims to have lost 55 lbs. by following the Fusion Xcelerator Weight Loss System. As an added bonus, they claim they include the Fusion Xcelerator 800 Watt blender unit for free.
What Fusion Xcelerator Is/What You Get
Fusion Xcelerator attempts to sell you on three things: the star power of the Duchess of York, special workouts and recipes, and, oh yes, there’s a blender included FREE! The products included with your order are:
- 10-day Jump Start Your Results Program
- Duchess’s Step-By-Step Meal Plan (100 recipes)
- Fusion Xcelerator Fitness Guide (65 illustrations, 9-week regimen)
- Xcelerator Recipe Book (for the blender, 25 recipes)
- DVD with 4 workouts (designed by Gilad Janklowicz, a popular aerobics instructor, famous for the Bodies in Motion program)
The stats of the Fusion Xcelerator are listed as:
- 800 Watt motor, with 20,000 RPMs
- 12 oz. and 24 oz. mugs with lids
- Quad blade for emulsifying, dual blade for milling
The Fusion Xcelerator blender is a product very similar to the Magic Bullet NutriBullet series of high-powered blenders, which also tout the benefits of eating blended foods. For comparison:
- NutriBullet original is a 600 Watt Motor
- NutriBullet 900 is 900 Watts
- Both the Fusion Xcelerator and NutriBullet blenders come with recipe guides and promise you will lose weight
- All of them come with blending units that double as drinking cups
Fusion Xcelerator Price
$59.97 which includes free shipping (for comparison, it’s about half the price of the NutriBullet 900) You can purchase at once or pay in 3 installments. Fusion Xcelerator comes with a 60-day money back guarantee (minus return shipping) and 60-day limited warranty, which does not cover normal wear and tear.
Bottom Line: Is Fusion Xcelerator a Worthwhile Purchase?
We don’t doubt Fusion Xcelerator is a weight loss system that combines exercise, diet, and a blender. But we would like to point out a few things:
First, the main thing they are selling you is a blender that costs $60. To make it appear like you are getting more of a bargain, they say the blender is free and the nutrition guides/workouts are the main cost.
Second, while there aren’t any specific reviews yet of this product, the manufacturer behind Fusion Xcelerator is TrStar Products, who currently have a C- rating with the BBB. The BBB website lists 925 complaints in the last 3 years, 9 of which are still unresolved.
Third, we would like to mention that while Fergie is a very charismatic woman who claims that she lost 55 lbs. using Fusion Xcelerator, she is paid to promote this product. The television show Duchess Discoveries is an infomercial paid for/created by TriStar, not an independent talk show.
In terms of the whole blender vs. juicing thing, we’d like to point out that according to this article in Woman’s Day, there are no scientific studies that prove a blender will “unlock” nutrients in your food. In fact, some say the juicing/blending fad can be downright dangerous causing long-term weight gain and diabetes.
If blending up some veggies or juice makes you eat healthier, that’s a good thing. Most experts agree moderation is the key – don’t go overboard on the juice dieting! Most importantly, if you are thinking of losing the kind of weight that Fergie did, it’s best to consult your doctor first.
