Danette May Diet

Danette May Diet Review

“Eat, Drink, Shrink.” I have to admit, I think that’s a pretty clever title for a weight-loss book. So right off the bat, Danette May gets big ups from me for that. And if it works, well, even better.   But before we begin to learn more about Danette May and her popular weight-loss and exercise programs, I must say this: there’s no such thing as a “degree in pre-med,” as she claims to have. Pre-med is a course of study, not a degree—so for me, that’s a problem. And I cannot find the college or university where Danette May claims to have received “a degree in pre-med and nutrition.” [1]  That said, I don’t doubt she knows a lot about exercise, weight loss, and fitness in general. She describes herself as “America’s leading lifestyle expert.” Maybe she is. […]15

Tummy Tuck Belt Review

The first question everyone wants answered is “Does the Tummy Tuck Belt work? Is the Tummy Tuck Belt Miracle Slimming System really a miracle?” You know what I’m talking about. The As Seen On TV product that people rave about. But does the Tummy Tuck Belt as seen on TV really work, or is it just another gimmick? Is this just another in a long line of weight loss promises broken? You know, just another way for weight loss snake oil salespeople to make a buck. Or in this case, lots of bucks.   I’m not going to lie; my favorite line on the homepage of the Tummy Tuck website is this one: “AMAZING! Results!

Zero Belly Diet Review

The Zero Belly Diet was written by David Zinczenko, and hit the shelves in 2014. The diet’s overall mantra is to turn off your fat genes and be lean for life by targeting the visceral fat that is found in the belly region.

The Zero Belly Diet is sold in many major retailers, as well as on the Amazon for just under $20.00 (not including shipping and handling). Their customer service center was simply an email to the editor, which was completely irrelevant due to the response time being so slow. […]0
