This is a good article. I learned a long time ago to"let the buyer beware." I dislike being untrusting but our society has made it necessary. Report

Might be a good time for members to realize that fad diets are scams as well. Keto, Paleo, Low carb, no carb... If the diet leaves out a food group or nutrient, it is not a good diet. Unfortunately, Sparkpeople members fall for these diets. They don't work, but desperation encourages them to keep finding proof that they do. Report

Bravo!! I hate to see people fall for the many, many weight-loss scams perpetrated on us by countless hucksters - especially on the 'net. Kudos for mentioning Dr. Barrett here; he's got a keen eye for quackery of every stripe and has been a reliable guide for me in those (shark-infested) waters. Report
