Miracle Diet Pill

This morning as I went online there was an email with the subject "lose weight".  As I scrolled down I read "Annita, lose 27 pounds in 1 month with this 1 trick".  I scrolled down a little more and saw "Miracle Pill" with a picture of Dr. Oz.  When I tried to "click here for more information" the screen was blank.  First of all, not every advertisement with a picture of Dr. Oz is legitimate.  I assume this one is not.  There is no miracle pill for weight loss. The only thing that will lose weight with this pill is your wallet! Considering what might be in the miracle pill, it might even have a negative effect on your health   Most likely there is a lot of caffeine involved.  To quote my doctor, "eat food that is as close as possible to the way that God intended it and not a lot of it" if you are or are not trying to lose some pounds. If you feel like you need a plan, look at the food pyramid or myplate.gov. Either will offer guidance.  While I personally adhere to the good doctor's advise, many smart professionals promote the Meditterrean Diet.  Weight Watchers gives a lot of people success as long as they stay on the program. That's true for any "diet". Once you go bezserk, the pounds come back.
