Diet Scams... Alive & Well

So, what do you think the biggest scams of 2005 were? Pyramid schemes?

Lottery scams? Internet hoaxes? NOPE! According to a recent study by the

Federal Trade Commission, in 2005 more people were victims of fraudulent

weight-loss products than of any other major type of fraud. Another study

just published in the British Medical Journal evaluated the long-term results

of three "weight-loss" medications, and it found that those pills did NOT live

up to the hype. On average, participants lost less than 5% of their body

weight, and a whopping 30 - 40% of them dropped out before completing the

trial. One of the meds tested was orlistat, which is sold over the counter as

the ever-popular Alli. Bottom line? A balanced diet you can actually stick to +

exercise = the best way to get rid of extra pounds and keep them off.
