Commercial Weight-Loss Programs Debunked

Not surprising at all to me that researchers found little evidence commercial weight-loss programs are effective in helping people drop excess pounds. And no wonder. According to a representative with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the "weight-loss" industry generally has been opposed to making such disclosures, arguing the truth about losing weight is much harder to sell than "the dream."

Interestingly enough, the FTC had met with representatives from various commercial weight-loss companies about a decade ago to collect more "solid" data on their effectiveness. However, the feds tried to establish voluntary guidelines that such companies would disclose prior to consumers signing on the dotted line, but that never quite materialized either.

Understand folks, losing weight and building optimal health isn't a dream and it doesn't require eating special foods you can only get at a weight-loss center nor do you have to apply for a second mortgage on the house just to afford an pricey and exclusive membership for a program that doesn't work anyway.

Fact is, regaining the optimal health you were likely born with isn't easy and it takes a lot of effort on your part to make that happen. And, unlike other weight loss "gurus," I'm more than willing to let my readers of my free eHealthy News You Can Use newsletter share their unsolicited success stories with you.
