I subscribed to Prevention for a while.... magazines seemed to have waaaaay too many ads in them, and sometimes the info in the mag seemed a bit suspect. So I quit subscribing.
What I like about Spark is that the info here is scientifically sound. It's not the latest fad or whatever's hit the bold type on the covers of magazines or onto Dr. Oz or whatever. Let's face it, the magazines (and Dr. Oz etc.) are in business to make money. Spark is free. There is no hidden agenda in the articles or the advice from the experts on this website.
I think with those "21 days free" offers, they're hoping you'll miss the window of opportunity to return the book, and therefore have to pay for it. I'd bet their book isn't much different than Reader's Digest's book or any of the myriad others out there.

Thanks Jen, I wasn't going to order anyway. SP is helping me to work on a plan that I can follow for my whole life.

I usually follow the rule that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. I'd save your money :)

I just got an email from Prevention. I have always respected their little magazine, but this left me a bit skeptical. After clicking on the link, it is a come on for ordering and trying the book which details the diet. You can return it after 21 days if not fully satisfied. Just wondering what others thought about this.
