The 2-Week Diet
Part of a weird scam series.
Author does NOT exist
Fake Testimonials with stock, stolen photos
Promotes crash dieting, demonizes carbs
Lite version of another weight loss scam
Don’t waste your time and money trying The 2 Week Diet by ‘Brian Flatt’ because it is a scam! This program is nothing more than the lite version of Flatt’s older, more popular weight loss scam The 3 Week Diet and in this review, you’ll find out all the reasons why you should stay away from this product.
Created in 2014 and updated in 2016, The 2 Week Diet claims to have the ‘little-known information’ that will help you lose as much as 8 to 16 pounds of fat every 2 weeks. Just as he claimed in The 3 Week Diet video presentation, Flatt says that his new program doesn’t involve ‘eat less and exercise more’ type of weight loss, or long workouts, or even the use of ‘dangerous pills and questionable supplements.’ Oh yeah?
Basis of The 2 Week Diet
So what’s the science behind The 2 Week Diet? According to Flatt, 5 things cause your inability to lose weight:
- You’re getting bad information about weight loss
- You’re suffering from ‘cellular’ inflammation
- You’re counting calories and focusing on the ‘eat less and exercise more’ approach
- You’re not seeing results despite your efforts
- You lack the right plan
I couldn’t help but laugh after reading these points. This is because the scammer himself spread bad information about weight loss and promoted calorie counting and drug use in his older 3 Week Diet program. By the way, the video presentations of The 2 Week Diet and The 3 Week Diet are practically the same. So don’t expect anything new in the 2 Week Diet.
Now let me quickly tell you the reasons why this program is a scam:
1. Brian Flatt Does NOT Exist!
Brain Flatt calls himself ‘a certified personal trainer, bestselling author, weight loss consultant, certified nutritionist, speaker…’ but that’s all nonsense. Why? Because he’s just a stock photo you can easily buy from Shutterstock.com!
I won’t really waste my time trying to prove this any further. This is because in my earlier review of The 3 Week Diet I detailed how I tried – and failed – to verify Flatt’s identity and qualifications. So head over to the review for more details.
2. Fake Testimonials With Stolen Photos
Just like in The 3 Week Diet, The 2 Week Diet’s testimonials are all made with stolen photos. For example:
- ‘Amelia’ is actually the stolen photo of a Reddit user with the username BeaReasonable. In the thread, this user explained that she lost weight by using dance workouts on ClubFitz YouTube page.
- ‘Diana’ is actually the stolen photo of a woman named Bec. She lost weight by using ketogenic diet.
So what does this tell you? The creator of this program is a liar and thief!
Apparently the scammers behind this program realized that their phony testimonials have been exposed as fake and so they decided to replace the photos of ‘Amelia’ and ‘Diana.’ The problem, however, is that the replacement photos are also fake, because they are all stock photos!
- The new photo of ‘Amelia’ is a stock photo you can buy from iStock;
- The new photo of ‘Diana’ is a stock photo from iStock also and
- ‘Chris’ is yet another stock photo from iStock.
Seriously, this scammer is not smart.
3. Promotes Crash Dieting, Demonizes Carbs
In the video presentation, we are told that 2 Week Diet is not about ‘eat less and exercise more’ approach to weight loss. However, from what I can infer from the preview version of the program, 2 Week Diet is all about promoting crash dieting.
Specifically, 2 Week Diet is all about eliminating carbs, while eating specific portions of proteins and ‘essential fats’ up to five times a day. Flatt went as far as to claim that carbohydrates ‘do not provide any nutritional benefit to the human body – none whatsoever.’ Say what?
Of course, crash dieting leads to weight loss. But the side effects are very unpleasant and dangerous … and ultimately, you WILL REGAIN all the lost weight. Yes, it is true that you won’t die if you stop eating carbs, but that does not mean that they are not essential to life. This is because eliminating carbs will lead to:
- Messed up metabolism
- Hormone imbalance
- Brain fog
- Restlessness, irritability
- Tendency to indulge in binge eating
- Reduced immunity, meaning that you’ll fall sick often
All these symptoms will eventually lead to rebound weight gain, which is more difficult to lose. So are you still thinking that carbs are not essential to life or has no nutritional benefit to the human body? Besides, this is a very miserable way to live considering all the side effects listed above, don’t you think?
Final Conclusion: DON’T BUY The 2 Week Diet. It is A SCAM!
Blacklisted Website: 2WeekDiet.com
Don’t also forget that the scammer behind this product once tried to sue Contra Health Scam for exposing his flagship scam The 3 Week Diet. This is just another reason for you to avoid this product like a plague!
Of course, just like most similar scams out there, a pop up (with a voice) blocks you from leaving the website. Then you are offered a $10 discount and given 2 minutes to accept the offer. Welcome the all too familiar pressure tactic!
