Is That Weight Loss Plan Too Good To Be True?

Did-You-Know--Weight-Loss-PlanIf 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.
