Enrollment and Cancellation
By enrolling in the 131 Method Program, you agree to pay a one-time Enrollment Fee of $149.00 by credit or debit card. Beginning on your date of sign-up and first payment, you will receive access to the Program and its online materials for twelve (12) weeks.
At the expiration of the twelve (12) week period, unless you enrolled in the 131 Method Membership monthly subscription service at the time you purchased the 131 Method Program, you will be given a two (2) week grace period in which to enroll in the 131 Method monthly subscription service. If you do not enroll in the 131 Method monthly subscription service, at the end of the two (2) week grace period, Company will terminate your access to the Program. After that time, you may only regain access to the Program by re-purchasing the Program and paying a new Enrollment Fee at then-current pricing.
After enrolling in the 131 Method Membership monthly subscription service, you will receive online access to the Program and Program materials, plus new recipes, meal plans, VIP Access to product launches and special product pricing, registered dietitians as well as other reference materials relating to the 131 Method. You may only enroll in the 131 Method Membership monthly subscription if you previously purchased the 131 Method Program. A subscription to the Membership subscription currently costs $9.95 per month (“Monthly Fee”); the Company will charge the Monthly Fee to your payment method for a minimum of every thirty (30) days until you cancel your subscription.
You may change or cancel your monthly Membership subscription at any time by contacting our customer service department at [email protected] or 1-800-200-0131. When you cancel, the Company will refrain from charging your account on the following billing cycle. Each billing cycle is thirty days, so your access will continue for the remainder of the current thirty-day period.
The Company reserves the right to suspend or terminate your subscription any time if you fail to pay amounts owing to us when due, or for any other reason in our sole discretion.
Payment and Refunds
You give us permission to automatically charge your credit or debit card for all fees and charges due and payable to the Company, without any additional authorization, for which you will receive an electronic receipt. You also agree that the Company is authorized to share any payment information and instructions required to complete the payment transactions with its third-party payment service providers (e.g., credit card transaction processing, merchant settlement, and related services).
In the event that payment is not received by the date due, you will have a three (3) day grace period to make the payment, otherwise the Program will not continue and we reserve the right to terminate your access to the Program and all Content immediately and permanently.
If you fail to make payment in a timely manner in accordance with these T&C or voluntarily decide to withdraw from the Program at any time or for any reason, you will remain fully responsible for the full cost of the Program and all payments in any payment plan you choose.
Your satisfaction with the Program is important to us. However, because of the extensive time, effort, preparation and care that goes into creating and providing the Program we have a no refund policy. Unless otherwise provided by law, you acknowledge that we do not offer refunds for any portion of your payment for any of our Program and no refunds will be provided to you at any time. By using and/or purchasing our Program, you understand and agree that all sales are final and no refunds will be provided.
Since we have a clear and explicit Refund Policy in these T&C that you have agreed to prior to completing the purchase of the Program, we do not tolerate or accept any type of chargeback threat or actual chargeback from your credit card company or payment processor. In the event that a chargeback is placed on a purchase or we receive a chargeback threat during or after your purchase, we reserve the right to report the incident to all three credit reporting agencies or to any other entity for inclusion in any chargeback database or for listing as a delinquent account which could have a negative impact on your credit report score. The information reported will include your name, email address, order date, order amount, and billing address. Chargeback abusers wishing to be removed from the database shall make the payment for the amount of the chargeback.

Personal Responsibility, Assumption of Risk, Disclaimers, and Indemnification
- You understand that physical activity and exercise are inherently risky and dangerous activities. Inherent risks are risks that cannot be eliminated completely regardless of the care and precautions taken by Releasees.
- The Company strongly urges you to consult with your physician (or primary health-care provider) before starting the Program, or using any supplement or meal replacement product, especially if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have any medical condition, or are taking any medication, since changing your diet or exercise or losing weight, may affect some medical conditions and medications. You should also discuss your continued participation in the Program with your physician, especially if there is any change in your medical condition or if you already have a known medical condition. You represent and warrant to Releasees that you are able to safely participate in the Program and have no medical condition that would make your participation in the Program more hazardous. You acknowledge that you have had a physical examination and have been given a physician’s permission to participate, or that you have decided to participate in the Program without the approval of a physician. Although the Program was developed by respected health, nutrition, fitness and lifestyle advocates, the Company is not a medical organization and its staff cannot provide you with medical advice or diagnosis. The Program was designed to be beneficial to your health but was not intended to treat any illness or disease. The Program does not offer medical advice.
- People with certain conditions may not use the Program or should take extra precautions and follow supervision of their physicians, including, but not limited to, people who are pregnant, nursing, diabetic, morbidly obese, under 18 years of age, or have a thyroid disorder or food allergies. Certain people may need to adjust the Program to take into account their specific circumstances. For information regarding adjustments to the Program, please contact us at [email protected]
- You acknowledge that, by engaging with the Company for the Program, you voluntarily assume an element of inherent risk, and knowingly and freely assume all risk and responsibility for injuries to any persons or damages to any property, and release, covenant not to sue, and hold Releasees harmless for any and all liability to you, your personal representatives, assigns, heirs and next of kin, for any and all claims, causes of action, obligations, lawsuits, charges, complaints, controversies, damages, costs or expenses of whatsoever kind, nature, or description, whether direct or indirect, in law or in equity, in contract or in tort, or otherwise, whether known or unknown, arising out of or connected with your participation in the Program, whether or not caused by the active or passive negligence of the Releasees. In the event that the release and hold harmless provision is held unenforceable for any reason, you agree to limit any damages claimed to the total paid to the Company for the Program.
- The Program and Content provide information and education only, and do not provide any financial, legal, medical or psychological services or advice. None of the Program or Content prevents, cures or treats any mental or medical condition. The Program and Content is not intended to be a substitute for professional advice that can be provided by your own accountant, lawyer, financial advisor, or medical professional. You are responsible for your own financial, legal, physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions and results. You should consult with a professional if you have specific questions about your own unique situation. The Company disclaims any liability for your reliance on any opinions or advice contained in the Program.
