A weight loss scam based on fake science.
Author is a real person
Flawed scientific basis of program
Does NOT issue refunds despite money back guarantee
Fat Diminisher by fitness trainer Wes Virgin is an unfortunate scam … and in this review I’m going to tell you the reasons why I arrived at this verdict. This particular scam is special in that the person behind it is real this time around … and has indeed helped people lose weight using other scam-free means.
Wesley Virgin, the guy who created Fat Diminisher, is actually an ex-military man turned virtual fitness trainer based in Houston, Texas. He has a popular YouTube channel, where he posts videos of him working out with people and sharing advice about diet supplements. He also does the same thing on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.
The fact that Virgin has helped people lose weight is undeniable. He created 7 Day Fitness in 2008, and with it he has helped scores of people lose weight through intense workouts in weight loss boot-camps. He also posted videos of some of those workouts on his YouTube channel as part of his virtual coaching guide.
So after reading this, one could easily believe that his Fat Diminisher program will work because he is an authority figure in the fitness industry. Unfortunately, this is not the case.
So why do I call Fat Diminisher a scam?
1. It is Based on A Big, Fat Lie!
In the awfully-long presentation video (over 58 minutes!) Wes explains that his system is created to fight metabolic acidosis which, according to him, is caused by the [healthy] kidneys’ inability to excrete all the ‘food acids’ in our blood, resulting in the accumulation of these acids which, in turn, disrupt the body’s normal fat burning process. Wes says he got this info from a Thai medical student named Severino, who was allegedly expelled from Harvard University because he allegedly refused to keep his discovery under wraps as requested by ‘big pharma and drug companies.’
Now if Severino is a real person and was truly expelled from Harvard because of this ‘discovery,’ then Harvard expelled him because he is a dummy and a disgrace to the medical community. Now why do I say that, you may ask. The reason is simple: Every medical student knows that metabolic acidosis can only occur when there is a drastic change in the blood’s pH (level of acidity), and this drastic change happens in case of severe diarrhea with dehydration … and kidney failure as a result of some serious disease like sepsis, diabetes etc. Metabolic acidosis can be mild, but the kind that causes weight gain is severe (the patients are often in comatose state) … and is always associated with an underlying disease, most of which are kidney disorders. Patients with this kind of acidosis can only be treated via dialysis.
Bottom line: Diseases cause metabolic acidosis, NOT foods!
Wes’ Fat Diminisher eBook claims to have recipes which, if taken in the exact specifications, will help you and your kidneys to get rid of the excess ‘food acids’ preventing you from losing weight. But as you’ve already seen in the previous paragraph, diseases, NOT foods, cause metabolic acidosis. This essentially means that Fat Diminisher is based on a big, fat, lie and so cannot work … and this is the main reason why I call it a scam.
Apart from this major evidence, there are other pieces of evidence cementing Fat Diminsher as a scam:
2. Spammy Email, Web Marketing
People who actually bought Fat Diminisher have complained a lot about receiving a lot of daily spam emails from Virgin and/or people claiming to be his friends. All these emails try to make them to try one weight loss product after another. Now someone with an authentic health product would not resort to this kind of spammy behavior, only scammers typically do this. What this also means is that Virgin is probably sharing his email list with other health scammers … another major red flag.
3. That Annoying Pop-up! Pressure Tactic Used
Finally, when you decide to leave the website, an annoying pop-up prevents you from leaving. Then you are issued a ‘WARNING!!!’ to buy Fat Diminisher – which normally sells at $29.99 – for $19 or else ‘you WILL NOT see this discount again.’ Another big, fat lie. I continued entering and exiting the website several times a day for three consecutive days and each time I was prevented from leaving and shown the same message. This is what we call applying pressure tactic on the consumer to make him buy the product.
Final Recommendation: DON’T BUY Fat Diminisher, It is A Scam!
Blacklisted Website: FatDiminisher.com
In conclusion, Wes Virgin seems to be a great guy who has helped people lose weight via intense workouts but his Fat Diminisher eBook is a worthless piece of crap that belongs to the dustbin. So he should do us a favor by taking it down, cleaning up all the spam, fake reviews his eBook has littered the internet with, and returning to training people in weight loss boot camps. He is more useful to the society that way.
