Oprah And Dr Oz Sue Acai Berry Scammers

The hammer has finally come down on acai berry scam and other health products using Dr Oz and Oprah Winfrey likenesses and supposed endorsements. The plain fact is that Oprah and Dr Oz have never endorsed these products even though Dr Oz has been on the Oprah Show several times and has talked about the benefits of acai berry. The pair is now suing some 50 companies for misrepresenting their images and businesses. The products include teeth whiteners, colon cleansers, resveratrol supplements, anti wrinkle creams and other dietary supplements.

Both Oprah and Dr Oz say their professional reputations have been injured by these scam products because the companies that put this stuff out use their voices, pictures and endorsements to sell their products, many of which are scams. Consumers are given a supposed free trial for around $4.95 for these products and then their credit cards are charged upwards of $80 a month without them being aware of it until the bills start showing up.

Many people have made a lot of money with these garbage healthy products from either the manufacturing side or the affiliate marketing side producing leads for these companies. The problem is that most of these products don’t even work and they are doing nothing for the consumer but ripping them off.

Harpo Inc, Zo Co., and OW Licensing Co. filed papers in New York Wednesday to stop what they say is “unauthorised and unlawful use” of Dr Oz’s and Oprah’s pictures, voices, and trademarks. Hopefully this action by Oprah will soon put an end to the acai berry scam products and other like it that are so prevelant across the internet. Several months ago the social network Facebook stopped all advertising of these products. It will be interesting to see if Google, MSN and Yahoo do as well.

Rush Limbaugh Diet – QWL – Quick Weight Loss Centers

All the rage right now is about the recent announcement of the Rush Limbaugh Diet as he modeled it from QWL or the Florida based Quick Weight Loss Centers. The diet supposedly uses supplements, an appetite suppressant, protein balancing and calorie counting and calorie restriction to help Rush lose weight.

While Rush has lost some 80 pounds in a couple of months according to him he claims to feel great and says he is the healthiest he has ever been. Several years ago Rush lost a bunch of weight and then gained it all back so he is now on the QWLC diet and is continuing to lose weight.

Do get me wrong , it’s great that Rush has gone on a weight loss program, but is what he is doing the best way to lose weight and be healthy? The problem with these kind of programs where you actually go on a diet is that at some point you have to go off the diet. Then what are you faced with? If you don’t change the way you eat on a permanent basis you will never be able to keep the weight off.

Weight loss and staying healthy is not about going on a diet, it is about eating a healthy diet every day, not just when you are overweight. If you want to stay healthy, you have to eat healthy all the time as a matter of lifestyle instead of dieting. It’s all about the mindset of how you treat your body instead of eating anything you want at any time and thinking that it’s okay because all you have to do is go on some calorie counting diet.

Don’t fool yourself, while the Rush Limbaugh diet at Quick Weight Loss Center may help you lose weight, it probably won’t help you keep it off. If you’d like to try some great tasting food full of nutrition that you can eat all the time, check out the healthy recipes section of our website.
