I thought this site was a great jab at the diet industry's dishonesty.

Wow that's an awesome site, thank you for sharing!

It's so miserable and sad how many people do these kinds of things...but then again..we are naive, too, right?

If I may say -

I went to the site and noticed that the same person had 2 different names...

Maybe there twins sperated at birth and reunited doing a fake diet program?

What is a good diet book to buy that is also good for the long term? Something they will help diet and also cange bad eating habits. I don't want a book that will just tell you about dieting but also provide a resource. Like food suggestions/recipes and exercise tips, ideas, and indexes. Things like that.

^ Umm. I doubt anyone here will recommend a dieting book to someone with an eating disorder. This is a pro-recovery site. Dieting is not life.

I agree, Kaz. Recommending a diet book would be detrimental to everyone I think...

I did kind of the same deconstruction with the acai berry diet scams only without photos. Sad thing is that I posted this in December and I'm still getting people commenting on there about how they were ripped off.
