“All natural” is meaningless marketing term used by retailers and manufacturers to shroud their customers in a blanket of good feelings and comfort, making them feel confident in their non-pharmaceutical approach to health and wellness. But the truth is “all natural” does not mean safe, as we’ve pointed out many, many times. And as this […]
Blogs are wonderful things. Not only do they indulge the various authors' needs to comment, rant & rave, or merely speculate on some topic or another; they also foster a sense of community and encourage you to share your views and opinions, and so forth.
This blog will be dedicated to topics that fall within the general theme of UltimateFatBurner.com (i.e, exercise, body building, supplements,weight loss, diet, etc), but outside the realm of mere product reviews.
A class action lawsuit has been filed against a number of companies that sell natural testosterone boosters containing the fenugreek derived Testofen. Gencor Nutrients, Inc., GE Nutrients, Inc., General Nutrition Corporation (GNC), S&G Properties LLC, Force Factor LLC and others have been named in the action. The reason why?

I’ve ranted and raved on more than one occasional about Dr. Oz and his breathless endorsements of weight loss supplements that have no business being endorsed. But no matter; regardless or whether or not such supplements are supported by an ounce of clinical data or not – and it’s usually the latter – anything that […]
Are you experiencing incredible success with that latest fat burner or body building supplement? Or maybe with that “male enhancement” product you bought to spice things up in the bedroom a little bit? Well, there might be a reason for that. And no… it’s not what you think; that the manufacturer has gone overboard to […]
Earlier this month, I wrote about how I thought the continued promotion of “detox” products was the biggest scam perpetuated on consumers in 2013. If you haven’t read it, you may want to take a look. Anyhow, I stumbled across a great article this morning over at Science Based Pharmacy that discusses the whole “detox […]
In my publication “Dirty, Rotten Tricks! Supplement Company Lies That Cost You Money!“, I talk about the “doctor recommended” scam. Essentially, the word of a medical doctor holds a lot of sway with the general public, so supplement manufacturers and retailers will often do whatever they can to be able to claim that their product […]
To celebrate the New Year, I decided to spend a little time thinking about the past 12 months, and specifically, the biggest supplement scam that has been “pulled” on the unsuspecting public.
