The Top Secret Fat Loss Secret Scam by Dr. Suzanne Gudakunst
OK, so by now you probably have already heard a lot of buzz on this book and maybe even bought it. Why do I call it a Scam? you may ask, well…because I did purchase the e book and although it does contain true and valuable information, the information provided by Dr. Gudakunst is NOT a secret and it has not been for a very long time. Actually ancient civilizations used her “top secret” to achieve good health.
All her ads and her affiliates’ ads state that she has received dead threats and doctors all over the world want her dead for releasing these “secrets” My guess is the only people who want her dead, are those who bought the book because they actually believed that there was some hidden “thing” keeping them overweight.
She goes on and on about eating organic fruits and vegetables, Big secret, right?
Stay away from all kinds of sugars and refined flours, heck this is new, isn’t it? How did she discover this one?
Then she talks about not combining certain protein (animal) with carbs such as pasta, rice, and bread, potatoes, etc. Another very well know fact for those of us who have read any nutrition book ever before. Again, no secret here!
She advises the order in which you should eat your foods: fruit first, raw vegetables second, cooked or steamed veggies third and last your protein (any kind of meat). Again, nothing new let alone secret here. It’s obvious that we should eat whatever is digested easier and faster first like fruit and veggies and the harder to digest foods after.
And last, my personal favorite so called secret, the one she claims has caused other doctors to threat her life… having your colon and liver cleansed to get any parasites or worms out of your system. Come on, is she for real? how can she call that a secret? How is this a reason for doctors wanting her dead for letting it out? I’ve read about this in at least 3 books before, books with no affiliate program, so I am not promoting here, these books were actually about clearing acne naturally.
Since colon cleansing is no secret AT ALL there are thousands of products on the market for colon cleansing, search the web and you’ll see, there are colon cleanse kits, pills, etc. Most of them (at least those I have researched) contain pretty much the same ingredients: Psyllium Husks Fiber or Oat bran Fiber, Milk Thistle Seed Extract, Cascara sagrada bark and Senna leaf, black walnut hulls, wormwood, and cloves.
If that wasn’t enough, she then lets you know, within the text of her e book (with a link even) how you can purchase the cleansing kits she created, which conveniently contain all of those wonderful ingredients she mentions you need for the cleansing.
If colon cleansing is so new and secret, why is the hydro colonic therapy business growing exponentially? How come Spa’s all over the world already offer this service?
My point? The book does contain valuable information, but nothing about what she wrote there is secret. Drinking a lot of water, staying away from sugars and flours, eating fresh organic fruits and veggies, exercising, having at least 4 meals a day, eating the right combinations of carbs and protein and colon cleansing are well known health and diet facts.
If you want to learn about nutrition and health in general, this is a good book for you. But, if you are seeking for a quick fix secret diet with no exercise and some goodies, this not for you, or just something that you have never ever heard about that is keeping you fat, this NOT for you. Most of us are fat or gain weight for a lot of different reasons such as overeating, genetics, hormonal problems, and in some cases parasites, but not in most cases.
Again, all of what she talks about is good information for anyone who cares about their health, not just someone who is overweight. Just don’t buy the whole “a new you” in one month with no great efforts. Not true.
While the most effective marketing is mainly done through people’s negative emotions, such fear and issues related to being overweight, I totally disagree with toying people around and placing ads with phrases like: “is not your fault you over eat”, “being fat has nothing to do with your will power”. If you overeat, no matter what the reason for doing it is…it is your fault, and it has everything to do with your will power and the sooner you accept and realize it, the sooner you will be on your way to weight loss.
If you happen to read any other articles promoting or stating that the book is the ultimate weight loss solution, chances are, they are in her affiliate program and earning 75% of any sale they make, through their articles, PPC or any other form of publicity, so it’s not that the book worked for them, they just want the juicy commission.
