Diet Doc has compiled a list to help prospective dieters make educated and knowledgeable decisions when searching for the best weight loss solution.

Deceptive and false weight loss advertisements seem to become more common at the beginning of each year. This is the time when people tend to make resolutions and are searching for the easiest and fastest weight loss solutions, making them more susceptible to outlandish claims made by online weight loss companies.

According to the Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Utah, the internet makes more diet products easily accessible to consumers, promising prospective dieters miracle weight loss with a few simple clicks of their mouse, but it has also increased the availability of worthless products making weight loss more in the form of a lighter wallet. In 2014, the BBB fielded over 22,000 complaints nationwide about worthless diet products and fitness services, with consumers spending over $2 billion without weight loss results.

A recent Consumer Reports survey of 3,000 Americans reveals that one in four people have used weight loss supplements. The same survey revealed that more than 90 percent were unsuccessful in losing and maintaining weight. Approximately one half of those surveyed reported side effects consisting of increased heart rate, digestive problems and jitteriness.

For this reason, Diet Doc has compiled tips to help consumers make a more educated and knowledgeable decision when purchasing diet products on line:

  •     Read the contract, including the fine print;
  •     Ask questions prior to signing a contract – What are the fees? Is there an initial sign-up fee? Is there a cancellation fee?
  •     Take heed to the age-old adage – If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Claims for diet products that promise weight loss of 20 pounds or more per week are outlandish and, most likely, fraudulent;
  •     Do not confuse the word “natural” with “safe”.
  •     Finally, always consult with a physician prior to beginning any weight loss program.

Weight loss supplements and deceptive and false weight loss advertisements claiming overnight weight loss miracles are in abundance throughout the country. Diet Doc recommends taking extra time to research the company, review customer comments and examine the company’s diet product development methods. Because diet products that deliver real weight loss typically require a doctor prescription, consumers should beware of internet sites offering these products. Many of these companies are located outside of the U.S., where there are no safety standards, the drugs are homeopathic and contain very little, if any, of the ingredient advertised to generate weight loss, and may also contain unknown ingredients that are potentially harmful.

In stark contrast to deceptive and false weight loss advertisements, Diet Doc has earned its reputation by offering doctor-designed, medically supervised weight loss programs that combine medical research with modern medical understanding. Their diet products are manufactured in fully licensed, FDA approved pharmacies in the United States under the strictest of quality standards.

After an initial online consultation with a Diet Doc physician, meal and snack plans are tailored to be specific to each patient’s personal nutritional, medical and lifestyle needs. Supplements, including pure, prescription hormone treatments, exclusive diet pills, powerful fat burners and appetite suppressants are prescribed for qualified patients to accelerate the rate at which they see fat melting from their body. Weekly checkup calls are scheduled to assess each patient’s comfort level, attitude and weight loss progress to ensure the safety of each patient. Finally, patients are provided unlimited access to their team of experts throughout and can reach them via phone or email for questions, suggestions or simply support, guidance and encouragement.

This level of personal commitment, support and attention cannot be duplicated by the competition and has enabled Diet Doc to help people throughout the country avoid deceptive and false weight loss advertisements and improve their health through safe and fast weight loss.
