Another year, and yet another scam from our good old friend ‘Brian Flatt.’ The fictitious ‘author’ of weight loss scams The 3 Week Diet and The 2 Week Diet is back with another gem – The 4 Week Diet – and surprise … it is a scam! Well I don’t really need to prove this one but for documentation sake, let’s briefly look at what Flatt is now offering us with this brand new program of his!
Created in May 2017, The 4 Week Diet claims to have the information that will enable you to lose up to 32 pounds in 28 days. According to Flatt, his program works by forcing your body’s four fat storing /burning hormones (ghrelin, insulin, cortisol and adiponectin) to ‘burn away’ your excess fat ‘no matter how hard you’ve tried before.’ Well let’s cut to the chase and look at the reasons why The 4 Week Diet is a scam:
1. Brian Flatt Does NOT Exist!
‘Brian Flatt’ is NOT a ‘a certified personal trainer, bestselling author, weight loss consultant, certified nutritionist, speaker…’ Instead, he’s a stock photo you can buy from Shutterstock.com!
Seriously, I don’t know how many times I’d have to say this.
2. Fake Testimonials With Stolen Photos
If you had read my earlier reviews of The 2 Week Diet and The 3 Week Diet, you’d have noticed that Brian Flatt has a penchant of using testimonial photos from across the internet and claiming them as his own. Well in the case of The 4 Week Diet, he did not disappoint. The program’s website is literally decorated with a lot of testimonial photos stolen from other sources, and I won’t bother myself tracing any of them. If you want to trace them anyway, I won’t stop you.
Also please note that Brian Flatt is fond of flooding review sites with positive comments and the web with fake reviews, so don’t trust any genuine-looking testimonials or reviews of this product you find online!
3. Contains NO Special Information. Commits A Significant Blunder
Flatt claims that his 4 Week Diet system will help you control the four hormones: Ghrelin, Insulin, Cortisol and Adiponectin. As far as I’m concerned however, this is just another example of someone using a scientifically proven fact to make his scam look authentic. So don’t expect The 4 Week Diet to really show you how to control these hormones!
If you want to know how to control these hormones, there are tons of free information online about how to do just that. You don’t need to buy anything!
Besides, in mentioning the hormones, Flatt failed to mention the hormone whose malfunction is majorly responsible for weight gain: Leptin. By making this mistake, he failed to inform you that leptin controls the activity of ghrelin, the hunger hormone. On top of that, he incorrectly called ghrelin ‘the fat storing hormone.’ Actually, INSULIN is the fat-storing hormone!
4. Insane Pressure Tactic Used
From the beginning of the video, it looked like it was going to be a straightforward presentation. But then Flatt showed his true colors when it came to pricing. First, he tries everything to convince you to spend the $47 on his product, even going as far as insinuating that you’ll die of obesity and be a disappointment to your family if you don’t ‘take action’ by buying his program. Twice he pretends as if to end the video, only to come back and continue trying to make you give him your money. Then, of course, are the multiple pop-ups preventing you from leaving and offering you discounts, complete with a countdown timer.
Final Conclusion: DON’T BUY The 4 Week Diet. It is A SCAM!
Blacklisted Website: FourWeekDiet.com
Clickbank is the retailer of this product. So if you made the mistake of buying it, then head straight to Clickbank to get your money back. Don’t be suckered in by Flatt’s promise that he’ll ‘personally’ give you your money back if you ask him. Fact is, he will never issue you a refund ‘cos he’s a scammer!
Also don’t forget that Flatt once tried to sue Contra Health Scam for exposing his flagship product The 3 Week Diet. So rest assured that we are dealing with a notorious scammer!
