NutriMost Gets A Reality Check

Share This Page

Swimsuit season is around the corner! If you are looking for a diet gimmick to melt the pounds away, consider this reality check. It involves a case against a weight loss program that made false and unproven weight loss claims that cost people money.

The FTC settled with NutriMost LLC, a company that produces and promotes a weight loss plan called the NutriMost System. The company distributes the NutriMost System through its own weight loss centers, and licenses or franchises it to chiropractors and other licensed practitioners to sell out of their own practices.

Ads for NutriMost claimed that people would safely lose 20-40 pounds or more in 40 days. NutriMost said users would lose weight “faster, easier, better, and healthier than ever before” because the company created personalized weight loss formulas “more unique than a fingerprint.” But under the FTC’s settlement, NutriMost must stop making misleading and unsupported claims about its technology and supplements. These include the unproven claims that the NutriMost System enabled consumers to achieve permanent weight loss, targeted weight loss, and helped treat or cure diabetes, psoriasis, and other diseases.

Consumers who paid $1,895 for the system had to sign an agreement saying they couldn’t make negative comments or reviews. Although NutriMost used consumer testimonials in their ads, the FTC says many were false or misleading because they failed to disclose that only some people in the testimonials followed the actual NutriMost System. NutriMost also failed to disclose that other reviews came from NutriMost franchisees, their relatives or employees.

Promises of easy weight loss can be appealing, but nothing beats diet and exercise. If you think a weight loss product is a scam, report it at ftc.gov/complaint.

Not referring to this topic. I received 6 calls today for 704-125-4171 which I did not answer, id said unavailable or name unavailable, Time to change my number.

I got 19 calls from 724-578-3172 claiming they were from United States Financial Aid and saying I qualify for free money within hours if leaving the office. Case is being investigated by FTC.

i yogi keeps calling 3 to 4 times a day I had them
two years ago they where suppose to be a computer service to repair problems on the computer I payed a
lot of money to them and they suddenly went out of business now someone from there keeps calling wanting me to let them in my computer here is one number they use 212-548-1245 stone harbor comes up on my telephone they keep harnessing me constantly
sometime it say unknown caller these people need to be stopped

I yogi are a bunch of ripoffs! It seems like they "need" $200 to "fix" every problem. The first fix was to run Malwarebytes. It worked well. I wrote down the name, and did a google search, and Malwarebytes offers a free download, as well as a paid version.

The nest "problem" was that I needed to upgrade to Windows 8, apparently because Win7 was riddled with problems. I'm still using Win7 3 years later. Apparently, the "problem" fixed itself :)

They did the same called early march and proposed a clean up of my computer for 200 to 350 dollars and said they worked for Microsoft. they asked me to download a program for them to fix my computer which was dying quickly...
they used the numbers 1 8157896252 { not in service} and 201 821 2910 and today 1 7041254171
they are crooks and should be stopped !

That almost sounds too good to be true because you can't lose 20-40 pounds in 40 days. It sounds like a scam because the effective way to lose weight is by exercising and eating healthy.

I went on this program two years ago, during which time,I got very ill with Bad Bronchitis. I couldn't stop the program because was already almost a month in. I still lost a about 30 pounds. The program was expensive, the food was expensive to purchase. They do nothing to support you afterwards. I ended up gaining all the weight back. The program is a scam, I want my money back. My husband and I both did this program in Michigan.
