Diet Pills: Stockpile of Diet Garbage on the Internet
Written by Thin Thin
While recently surfing the net I came across some really bizarre diet findings. These findings come from bona fide weight loss sites as well as miracle weight loss products.
Don't be suckered into falling into one of these pits of false information. Here is a small sampling of things that left a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. Again - please folks, don't be suckered into any of the following hell holes:
1. Weight Loss Patch - the patch contains Fucus Vesiculosus, Guarana and Garcinia extracts and Menthol. The ad is filled with large impressive words such as cellulite, lipolytic and vasodilation action, absorption and synthesis of fat, cholesterol and triglycerides. The large words lend the impression to the potential dieter that the business owner is 'smart'.
And if they have a powerful vocabulary, then surely they are pushing a powerful weight loss product. The patch is guaranteed and costs a mere $30 plus shipping and handling per month.
If you purchase this product you're either totally insane or a total idiot. If you must spend the money, send it to me where I'll wisely put it to use via wildlife rehabilitation efforts.
2. Zotrin. These people use a mind approach to sell their bogus weight loss products.
The mind approach? They play on men's minds. They make men think that if they diet, some body parts will no longer work as effectively. BUT, if you purchase their product for a tiny $75 plus S&H, you'll keep that high drive while losing weight.
One 'pitch' I read on the product stated that the guy took 2 pills, then only managed to eat a couple of spoons of food because the pills were so effective - so powerful. What's in these miracle bullets? Oyster juice??? Nonetheless, it sounds a bit fishy to me.
3. One site owner made a claim that if you drink 20 glasses of water per day you'd burn 200 calories.
Obviously, all of the water washed the woman's brain away. Her advice could very well be fatal by inducing an imbalance of electrolytes in the body - particularly without incorporating exercise.
Oh, and by the way. I'm certain that she'd care about the diet fatality. Would probably attend the funeral, too. Right? I don't think so.
4. One of the newest gimmicks appears to be weight loss software. And the price can be steep.
5. One weight loss site stated that an individual could lose 27 pounds a week using their weight loss method. Their 'e-material' had even been tested and proven by actors/actresses. Oh - and let's not forget that it's all natural - just like all actors/actresses.
6. Then there are the sites that recommend giving up a certain food - which will automatically:
a) speed up the metabolism OR,
b) cause instant weight loss because the food was demonized to begin with and should have never been introduced into the diet OR,
c) the elimination of a specific food creates an 'amazing' fat burning engine to fire up. Isn't that amazing?
7. A plethora of 'natural fat burning' products are to be found and can be purchased at prices that will fit anyone's budget: $1 per day - up to your firstborn child.
8. You gotta love the 'take a purge' sites. Losing weight can be as simple as emptying your guts. Just what the overweight individual needs - another eating disorder to add to the one they are currently combating. Geeze!
9. Herbs, supplements, weight loss equipment, slimming nutrition bars, vitamins, and things made from exotics such as goats, sharks and snakes - if you can think of it, it's probably out there waiting to take your hard earned $$$$.
10. FDA Targets Words to Look for in 'That Perfect Diet': easy, effortless, guaranteed, miraculous, magical, breakthrough, new discovery, mysterious, exotic, secret, exclusive, ancient, a deal that you can't afford to pass up, unbeatable deal, a steal!
If you see these words, odds are that you are dealing with fraudulent material. Take your money and run to the Diet Jungle!
