LOL, I received this on December 20th...This is quite humorous!!!

Subject: Lose 32 pounds by christmas!!!
: )))

If you're like me, you've tried EVERYTHING to lose
weight. I know how you feel - the special diets,
miracle pills, and fancy exercise equipment never helped
me lose a pound either. It seemed like the harder I tried,
the bigger I got, until I heard about a product called
Power Diet Plus.

You're probably thinking to yourself, "Oh geez, not another
miracle diet pill!" Like you, I was skeptical at first, but
my sister swore it helped her lose 23 pounds in just two weeks,
so I told her I'd give it a shot. I mean, there was nothing
to lose except a lot of weight! Let me tell you, it was
the best decision I've ever made. Period. Six months later,
as I'm writing this message to you, I've gone from 355 pounds
to 210 pounds, and I haven't changed my exercise routine or diet
at all. Yes, I still eat pizza, and lots of it!

I was so happy with the results that I contacted the manufacturer
and got permission to resell it - at a BIG discount. I want
to help other people lose weight like I did, because it
does so much for your self-esteem, not to mention your health.
I give you my personal pledge that Power Diet Plus
absolutely WILL WORK FOR YOU. If it doesn't, you can return it
any time for a full refund.

If you are frustrated with trying other products, not having
any success, and just not getting the results you were promised,
then I recommend the only product that worked for me - POWER DIET

You're probably asking yourself, "Ok, so how does this stuff
actually work?"

Power Diet Plus contains Lipotropic fat burners which are
scientifically proven to increase metabolism and cause rapid
weight loss. No "hocus pocus" in these pills - just RESULTS, RESULTS,

Here is the bottom line ...

I can help you lose 10-15 pounds per week naturally, without
exercising and without having to eat rice cakes all day.
Just try it for one month - there's nothing to lose, and everything
to gain. You will lose weight fast - GUARANTEED. That is my
pledge to you.

It's funny and at the same time its kind of sad. Cause how many people have placed hope in this type of advertising. After being at 3FC I will never buy another supplement again!!!!!!!!!!

Annie and others: I have seen this same type ad time and time again in magazines, newspapers, on TV and Radio, where some say they lose huge amounts of weight very quickly. When advertising in magazines, etc. you may notice in fine print at the bottom of the ad, that "Results Not Typical and Vary from person to person". Also, it is true with many of these products that they may increase your metabolism like for instance Hydroxycut, Xenadrine, etc., but most people do not lose the extreme amounts of weight that some of these ads say and plus they do not go into detail all of the side effects that these metabolic boosters may have on your health - like rapid heart beat, heart attack, extreme nervousness, insomnia, etc. Health food stores are full of these type offerings, so I guess only the owners of the companies that sell mass quantities of these products and/or the manufacturers of these pills, etc. are the only ones who are laughing at dieters desperate attempts to almost try anything to lose weight. I myself, have been taken in by at least 6 or more of these loser plans in the past few years, but most of the time I sent back the product and did get most of my money back, but still had to pay for return shipping.

I hope we all find a safe way to lose the weight and that we can do so soon. Sincerely, April :)

Thanks for the laughs... yes it would be nice if there was a "magic pill" but reality is we have to eat right and exercise! :)

After spending zillions and zillions of dollars in research, they come up with the conclusion... "You mother was right... eat your vegetables!" :)
