Dr. Phil, No More Dieting!

So much for the diet pills and promised weight loss!! "Dr. Phil" McGraw has reached a $10.5 million settlement agreement over his now discontinued Shape Up! diet plan.

The diet industry is a multi-billion dolloar business. It is filled with myths, misconceptions, catchy informercials and gimmicks. Top 10 weight-loss myths are debunked. I said it over and over again. Weight loss requires a combination of healthy lifestyle changes, disciplined exercise habit, and balanced diet and nutrition plan. Certain vitamins, minerals and supplements (for example, anti-oxidants and fatty acid oils) may be helpful if you don't take in enough from meals or have medical problems. Always consult your doctor if you have any doubts, particularly if you're under medications. Some crash diets promise to help you for the short term. But it's not healthy for your long-term overall health. Nothing is better than the safe and proven three-prong approach to successful weight loss and management.

American consumers ought to realize that if the advertizing of weight loss diet plan sounds too good to be true, it's probably so, even endorsed by celebrities. Examine the claims and disclaimers. Read the fine prints. Check the research credibility. Use your common sense. Educate youself. Ultimately it's your money and your health.
