I'm skeptical of any company with a "diet miracle", other than a pharmeceutical company. I know people get frustrated that the pharm companies' drugs cost so much, but the reason that they do cost so much is that the pharm companies are [i]regulated.[i] This means that they have to pay to have studies done on the product to prove its effectiveness, plus, they have legally binding restrictions on the claims they can make. Plus, they have to pay to put years of research into developing legit products - the fly by night companies can charge less because they cut all kinds of corners in the product-development and quality assurance stages.
