I’m Sick of Oprah…She Speaks, Diets Scams Emerge

By on November 12, 2008

It never fails. Someone pays Oprah to be on her show and tout some “Unbelievable New Product” and because she speaks everyone goes out and buys that product by the truckload.

Here’s a little secret… to be one of the books on Oprah’s Book club it cost’s the publisher $10,000.00 dollars minimum to have her talk about it.

If you’re willing to spend the money anyone can get on Oprah. She really is an enterprise and I don’t fault her for that, I would never. What I do want to bring to light is that she endorsed as well as Dr. Oz the Acai berry as a Super food. I won’t disagree with the anti-oxidant effects of the Acai Berry at all. That is all true.

What I have a problem with are the absolute scam diets that are coming out touting that this new Superfood is going to help you lose …up to 42 pounds…lose all the weight you want by just drinking this juice without changing anything else. It’s not going to work.

The Acai berry is chock full of Anti-oxidants and can help with ridding the body of damaging free radicals but don’t ever believe that “Berry Juice” disguised as a “Berry Diet Cleanse” is going to take off the fat that can only be burned through “sensible eating and real exercise”.

Just because Oprah is an awesome person to so many millions of people and was able to elect an African -American Senator from Illinois to the most powerful position in the free world, still doesn’t mean that you will lose weight from a “Berry Drink”.

Short intense workouts and sensible eating will do it everytime.

did you see my oprah post on monday? BEYOND THAT did you hear her say the other day that she’s doing ALL PROTEIN NOW (an offhand remark during a show NOT about weight)?

Ill be the groceries are selling out of the foods she offhandedly mentioned.
