Top 10 Signs That a Weight Loss Company/Product/Device/Plan is Lying!

Posted Aug 20 2013 11:16am

This week’s Top 10 is inspired my recent stolen before and after photo drama .  All these screen shots were taken from the site that is using my images to sell their diet pills.

I’m not normally a negative person but this whole situation has really gotten under my skin. I’m so over weight-loss scams. Here are 10 big hints that weight loss company/product/device/plan is lying.

 We should all know by now that spot fat reduction is not possible. You can’t target belly fat or arm fat or thigh fat. All you can do is lose weight and let your body be what it’s going to be.

Of course you can tone areas with exercise but that’s different than losing fat. If an ad claims you will lose a specific type of fat, they are lying.

If an ad claims it’s a celebrity secret it’s not. You want to know what celebrities have? Money, resources, and time. It’s their job to stay thin. I’m not saying it’s easy for them I’m just saying they have no secrets. If an ad is trying to sell you a celebrity secret, they are lying.

That’s the quote I, err “Jess,” supposedly said about the pills that my stolen photos were selling. Listen, if a weight loss product claims you don’t have to change your diet, they are are lying.

If an ad says it does, it’s lying.

Diets don’t work, you do. Lying.

It sounds great on the surface, right? But in my opinion the money back guarantee claim up front is a HUGE sign you are dealing with a shady company. Think about it. Why are they leading with this? If a company really stood by their product they wouldn’t have to flash this all over their website. If they are, I bet they are lying.

I have an issue overall with this claim because it literally means NOTHING. You know what else is natural? Arsenic, snake venom and anthrax, all of which can kill me. A company or product that splashes this all over the place probably has nothing else good to say about their product. It may not be a lie but it shouldn’t make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside either.

This may be an anticlimactic No. 1 but it’s true. If someone is trying to sell you something to help you lose weight it’s probably a scam. There is no quick fix, no pill, no magic, no piece of equipment and no special supplement or additive that will help you lose weight if you don’t change your lifestyle. If an ad tells you otherwise it’s lying.
