It's interesting that you mention this. I was at the diabetes clinic today and a patient was saying how they were on a commercial weight loss programme. The programme short changes you on what you can eat and in turn they sell you supplements to make up the nutrients that you are not getting in your diet. After you lose the weight and start eating normally you end up worse than you started. Plus the supplements are over $50 a week. The worst part is that the diet was so deficient in carbs that the person was often in a state of hypoglycaemia.

It is sad to see that people will prey one ones desperation to lose weight at the expense of someones health. I guess thats what happens when salesmen plan a nutritional programme.
