We have probably all fallen for this at some time in our lives. I'm grateful I wised up.

My favorite lines from Marie Osmond's NutriSystem commerical:

"No fads or gimmicks" -- NutriSystem qualifies as BOTH!

"My belly is flatter now than when I was in my 20s" -- Of course it stopped breeding like a rabbit!!!

Isn't this interesting? But isn't one of the challenges here on SP (the BMI Smart Challenge) sponsored by I-Remove...a pill (or something) that purports to block some portion of the carbs we eat? How can SP give this advice, but carry advertising/sponsorship from a company like this? I know that the ads pay the bill, but how about some integrity?

I do NOT believe in 'fad' diets. Diets such as Slim Fast, Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig and Plexus ( the worst one out there) have been proven to be FAKES and they do NOT work. I tried Slim Fast and when I saw that I was NOT losing weight I stopped using it. I realized that it was a fake, fad diet just like all the rest of them. I wasted money on that crap and I will not be wasting my money on another crappy diet.

I stick to portion controlling, eliminating sugar and pop, eating more fruits and vegetables, working out 30 minutes a day and drinking plenty of water.

Those fake 'fad' diets know where to stick it.
