Is That Weight Loss Plan Too Good To Be True?
If it seems too good to be true, it probably is! In choosing a weight-loss program, watch out for these false claims:
- Lose weight without diet or exercise!
- Lose weight while eating all of your favorite foods!
- Lose 30 pounds in 30 days!
- Lose weight in specific problem areas of your body!
Other warning signs include very small print, asterisks and footnotes, and before-and-after photos that seem too good to be true.
Your best bet? Ask your doctor to recommend a safe, healthy, effective weight-loss plan.
