Beware of new diet Scam.

Directory of Health Blogs

***UPDATE*** 10/6/2012 Though this was written in 2009 this topic is still something to be aware of. I am sure that the diet scam I was referring to has changed, and evolved to be less conspicuous. Even still a scam and buyer beware. ******

I am all about health and fitness and finding new products to assist our busy hectic lives. But when I come across a scam I need to rant and rave about it.

The Ad I found on a popular list founded by criag was lose weight and feel great. Now many of you know that to be true. The enticing part of this was "we pay 1200 dollars for you to participate in our 30 day study."

Now who is not game for 1200 bucks to participate in a 30 day study and lose weight. The study was for a diet pill that just came out on the market. They only accept the first 100 people.

Stay away from the scams and Click here for Burn The FAT Feed The Muscle. Transform your body in 49 days, and get in the best shape of your life.  

So now I am curious to what the pill is and what the study entailed so I responded to the ad.

This is the email reply I recieved.

"Hello,

Thank you for your interest, you are indeed one of the first 100 people to contact me, so you could certainly reserve the spot.

As stated in the CraigsList AD, we need 100 participates that are willing to take a popular diet pill on a daily basis for thirty days. Everyday we will be recording any differences, and finish the study at the 30th day. If you don't want your name used publicly in the study, then please say so.
At the same time, we will compensate you $1200 for your participation. This will be paid in check, on the last day.

We will meet a total of four times, and the times will depend on your availability time. Meeting places will be at a local gym of your choice.

This weight loss product has seen and promoted on many T.V stations. We were lucky enough to have them offer a free trial for us.

If you plan to participate then the following needs to be done:

1) You must fill out the following short form and receive your diet pills. FORM . Please be patient while the page loads. Depending on your location, there may be a slight S&H fee. If you are selected for the study, this charge will be reimbursed.
2) After you submitted your order for the free trial, please email us back with your name, confirmation number, phone number and your address. You will then wait to receive the free trial.

Please do not call the diet company asking any questions regarding this weight study, because their employee personnel will not know of this study. We are simply testing their products on free will.


Thanks,

There is link in the letter that pointed to Acai Berry product for a free trial that I had to buy. Then with this product you are automatically signed up for auto ship. Also the reply letter says if you are selected for this study. That is a red flag right there.

If the study was real the participant would not have to buy the product. And definately would not be on a autoshipped program that is paid through your bank card automatically every month.

Well I am flagging this as a scam. Not the product but the Diet Search Inc. Do not fall for such program scams. After reading the email getting no reply back from such company through there email. And being told not to contact the product company. This in my book is a scam.

If you are the company that is holding this "Study" and want to dispute this argument be my guest. If you are reading this and thought about doing this, in my advice "dont"

Early morning exercise programs.

Directory of Health Blogs

Have you ever been channel surfing, in the a.m. on the tube, and came across the 80s style morning aerobics? And maybe you wondered why are they on this early? Maybe asked who actually watches these things, better yet participates in them?

The answer is, there are actual people who benefit from those. There are people who get up early in the morning before work and exercise along with the program. There are people who are getting in shape, and people who are in shape because of these shows.

My all time favorite we all like to laugh at is dancing to the oldies by Richard Simmons. But as annoying as we may think he is, he has helped many men and women. So I must applaud him for that. But todays dancing to the oldies have matured and grown. There are now so many hip and stylish workout programs we can benefit from.

The question is how can these programs help you? You get up in the morning get the kids ready for school, get yourself ready for work, and so does your significant other. You rush everyone out the door and you are off to start your day. Now your morning is done and your day has started. Around about 10ish you maybe tired sluggish just not ready for the next half. A large cup of mojo and you think you are ready. By 3o'clock you are yawning tired and dreading the ride back home.

Start over-

You get up early in the morning about 30 minutes before everyone else. You pop in a exercise tape and for 30 minutes you dance to the 2000's, so to speak. You shower, get the kids ready, you are out the door and off to start the day. About 10ish you are wide awake feeling great full of energy and ready for the rest of the day. 3 weeks later you notice you are getting firm, toned, cut, and losing weight. Wow who would have thought. All that from 30 minutes in the morning before everyone gets up.

You dont have to dance to the oldies, you can do some yoga. Maybe some pilates, taebo, kaibae, beach body dance any number of videos, ie Denise Austin videos• Kathy Smith videos• Gilad videos• Stability ball videos• Aerobics videos• Kickboxing videos• Bellydance videos• Step aerobics videos• Ballet videos• Bootcamp videos etc etc.
