Original link went to Alphabet Heaven ...

try this one instead:

Veronica Noon, a blogger for Just Roni who aims to 'inspire and share her ideas to live a lighter, healthier life,' has revealed that an unnamed diet company stole her 'before and after' photos, and claimed she lost the weight 'in an obscene amount of time' using its diet products.

'No, the photos arent Photoshopped,' the Maryland resident writes. 'I really did lose 70 lbs. It just took a hell of a lot longer than 30 days! "Day 1" and "Day 30" are exactly a year apart.'

It's not surprising. Unless you water stamp your pictures, or embed coding into the picture so no one can save the picture, anyone can save a picture and use it for their own purposes. Manipulation of photos, and taking photos is hardly anything new. I've seen it happen to a few people, so I don't really believe any of them. Not that I would ever pay any attention to fad diets/ exercise plans anyhow.

Happens all the time. It's happened to dozens of Sparkers, and to people at every other similar site. That's why you can't trust advertisements; there's no way to know if the pictures really have anything to do with the "diet," and in fact they USUALLY are fake.

Anybody remember "Kimkins?" She took random pictures of random overweight women and paired them with "afters" that were actually from an Eastern European mail-order bride site. The before and after pictures were two different people!

And it's not an internet thing. They've done it in magazine ads for a hundred years or more.

Guess what? The "testimonials" aren't true, either. Anybody surprised?

If it weren't one of the bloggers from wearetherealdeal.com, the eating disorders, body image and weight management hub... I wouldn't have believed it, either ...

" 'Day 1' and 'Day 30' are exactly a year apart.

"A company or individual (they have since made their contact info private since I emailed them a copyright violation notice) decided to steal my before and after photos, slap some text on them, and claim I lost the weight in an obscene amount of time using their diet products."


Discuss.
