Posted by multisport man in Diet, Health, Weight Loss.

I can’t say I didn’t see this coming… with diet fads like colon cleans and acai berry diet pills…

Thanks to John for posting about the onslaught of phony weight loss blogs.

The story is at WeightLossWeapons with the full list here.

Its a list of phony weight loss blogs that are sales pages in disguise. Avoid these sites!

There are 67 listed already, they all look like copycats. They just want your credit card number.


Let your food be your medicine, with a cookie diet! July 1, 2008

Healthy eating should be everybody’s main goal especially in today’s world of instant and pre-processed foods. We are living in the world where the food arrives fast, portion sizes are increasing and the numbers on the bathroom scales are creeping up.

The benefits of healthy eating are insurmountable. Let your food be your medicine. Food is more powerful than any prescription weight loss pills, because the food that you eat can either make you thin or fat. What you will get is a better life, longevity, an ideal weight, and a perfect figure (plus you should cut seconds or even minutes off your times on the race course!)

The choices we make greatly affect our health. Making a few simple healthy and nutritious changes in our dietary choices can have a profound and positive impact on our health, well-being, energy levels and life span.

Usually the whole diet thing is easier said than done. But take a look at this one called Smart for Life, which is a medically supervised life-transforming weight loss program, with the goal to make you disciplined and sensible in your lifestyle. And to look and feel better than ever, but every diet program makes that claim 😉

But good news – you don’t have to starve yourself in pursuit of permanent weight loss. This cookie diet (yes, a cookie diet) based on smart food products is a medically supervised weight-loss offer and weight maintenance plan.

They promote a balanced lifestyle and champion simple healthy habits. With their meal-replacing smart cookie squares you don’t need to always worry about feeding cravings or feeling deprived. They are full of nutrients, amino acids, and fiber which suppress hunger while still supplying the body with the protein it needs. Smart cookies develop smarter eating habits by teaching patients to eat smaller meals more frequently during the day.

Seriously, smart cookies. I’m not one to promote any diet program, but anything with “smart cookies” will at least catch my attention!

Eat All You Want And Still Lose Weight! December 4, 2007

While we’re talking about supplements, take a look at Akavar. I was drawn in by the “Eat All You Want And Still Lose Weight!” claim.

Here’s an explanation:

As Akävar™-20/50 restricts your caloric intake to below your normal daily caloric consumption, you literally pull excess fat from all over your body, including your waist, hips, thighs and buttocks (the body’s natural fat storage sites)… leaving your body thinner, trimmer and sexier than you ever thought possible.

They have some research to back it up too. It’s all on this Akavar page.

More thoughts on Diet Pills
All these diet pills and Rapid Weight Loss Pills sure sound amazing. But what weight loss commercial doesn’t make their product sound like an amazing solution? 🙂

Like running, cycling is a great sport for people of all ages.

Unlike running, cycling is a low impact sport. That means it won’t wreak havoc on your joints like running does.

Although bikes can get really expensive, you can start cycling with just a regular bike and helmet.

And it’s an easy way to burn calories if you need to lose weight.
