Probably fake and a total scam.

Here's your answer! I've often wondered where they lead...

articles.washingtonpost.com/2011-07-06/lif
estyle/35268004_1_hcg-diet-weird-old-t
ip-acai-berries


The article basically says you click on it and it will lead you to a fake "news" article or report about some diet miracle like acai berries or such with fake comments of people who have had tremendous success. The next step is to order your "free" sample of whatever, but to do so you have to input your credit card, "leading to thousands of complaints about unauthorized charges."

OBIESMOM2 - too funny

I was just wondering if anyone had actually followed that ad to the point of finding out what it was.

Or the wrinkle one...

Somebody must do these things or they would go out of business...

PS I didn't mean I thought it would work - I'm just curious as to what they tell you at the end.

I don't think there's this "one weird trick"... ;)
But there are of course some useful little advises:
- drink a loooot of water
- try to eat as much fruits/veggies as possible
- exercise
- don't eat too much crap, only the amount you need to be happy :P ^^

Hopefully it's something simple--like EXERCISE DAILY..... That I can do!

I don't know what the 'strange old tip' is, but it's evidently pretty powerful.

It can help you sleep all night, make a 57 year old woman look 25, get rid of your belly fat...

I've had that ad for the belly fat following me around various websites for a few days now.

Does anyone know what the "strange old tip" actually is?

With my luck it's probably something useful like "stand on your head for 4 hours a day" or more likely "send me money"...

Some of them say "WeightWatchers" on the ad and I followed the link and it didn't strike me that it actually was Weight Watchers, makes you wonder.
