Happy New Year everyone … and what better way to kick off 2019 than to expose The 1 Week Diet, yet another scam from our favorite stock photo author ‘Brian Flatt’? That’s right. The same guy behind the 2-Week Diet, 3-Week Diet and 4-Week Diet is back with his weird series of weight loss scams. I mean, what should we expect next: 5-Week Diet? Anyway in this review, you’ll find out all you need to know about this latest scam from Flatt and why you should keep your distance from it. So let’s begin, shall we?
Believe it or not, The 1 Week Diet website domain was registered way back in 2003, but the program itself was launched recently. It claims to have the secrets that enabled one ‘Debbie Hayes’ to lose 45 pounds within 7 days. This so-called ‘secret’, according to Flatt, was discovered by his ‘grandfather’ Graham Flatt after his war plane was shot down during World War II in Okinawa, Japan. Now how many times have we heard of health ‘secrets’ and ‘miracles’ getting discovered in Okinawa?
Anyway, that’s all I’m going to say about the awfully boring backstory of this program (which makes the bulk of the 1 hour, 10 minutes ‘short’ video presentation). So let’s move on to the fun part. Why is The 1 Week Diet a scam?
1. Brian Flatt Does NOT Exist!
At this point, regular Contra Health Scam readers should know this pretty well. The photo passed off as that of Flatt is just a stock photo you can buy from Shutterstock.com.
Seriously, I hate repeating myself. Moving on.
2. Debbie Hayes Does NOT Exist! (Doctored Stock Photos)
Brian Flatt tells us of how he used the secrets from his grandfather to make one Debbie Hayes to lose 45 pounds within a week and drop six dress sizes. But it’s all hogwash, because the testimonial photos passed off as that of Debbie are doctored stock photos! In fact, you can still buy Debbie’s supposed before photo at iStock.com. Compare that to the photo below, and you’ll see the doctoring.
Can’t say I’m surprised by this, given the kind of scammer we’re dealing with. Speaking of the real scammers:
3. Part of a Huge Scam Empire
Aside from the fact that The 1 Week Diet is clearly part of a weird line of weight loss scams, I can say with authority that it is just part of a huge scam empire championed by one Wes ‘Billion Dollar’ Virgin. This is not an allegation, as Wes himself openly admitted to having something to do with these products. Apart from the [insert any number]-Week Diet scams, other products in this empire include:
So you’ve been warned!
4. Fake Testimonials With Stolen Photos
All the testimonials featured in The 1 Week Diet are fake because they are made with stolen photos. For example:
- ‘Sheila’ from Texas is actually the stolen photo of a woman named Nikki Gibson. The photo was first published on BuzzFeed.
- ‘Amber’ from Thousand Oaks, California is actually the stolen photo of a woman named Laura Hyman. It was first published in People Magazine.
I can go on and on but I think you get the picture by now. Also, this is not the first time Flatt has done this, and it won’t be his last. So expect me to expose more fake testimonial photos in his probably upcoming 5 Week Diet.
5. Makes Hypocritical Claims. Author Contradicts Himself
Barely four minutes into his video presentation, Flatt tells us that one of the ‘most destructive’ weight loss ‘myths’ is that you need to cut carbs to lose weight. He not only ‘debunked’ this myth, but even went on to say that you can eat potato chips and pizza and still lose weight.
This would have been all fine and good had it been that Flatt isn’t being a shameless hypocrite. You see, back in The 3 Week Diet, Flatt flat out claimed that carbs are NOT essential for the human body because it ‘does not provide any nutritional benefit’ and so you should eliminate them from your diet. He also said the same thing in The 2 Week Diet. So why is he turning around and claiming the opposite now and ‘debunking’ the ‘myth’ he helped spread? And mind you, he never acknowledges his error in his 3-Week Diet program, which makes sense since he technically is not human. He’s a stock photo afterall!
And before I forget, there was one significant blunder Flatt made: He claims that when your body lacks calories, it becomes ‘anabolic’ by breaking down muscle cells. Now ask yourself: How is breaking down muscle cells considered an ‘anabolic’ process?
Final Conclusion: DON’T BUY The 1 Week Diet. It is A SCAM!
