Against my better judgement I bought a weight loss system for $27 from the website 20in10days.com. The system did promise a 100% money back guarantee.

The system promises 'No gimmicks, No Starvation, No Workouts or Gym' when in actual fact, it consists of just a breakfast, lunch and dinner listing for each day with the option of a snack or two. The totally calories for the whole day are under or around 1000 calories.

These type of low calorie diets do not work for me (and many others) as my body just seems to go into starvation mode, and will han onto every gram of fat it possible can. Even if they did work, I can download the calorie amounts for any given food of the internet, I do not have to pay $27 to make a 1000 calories a day diet sheet up.

I wrote to Mr. Weeks who replied:

'Hello,

If you read through the diet you will find that I explain the program calories are based on the average individual and if an individual is more active or consumes much more it explains how to increase portions.

Regards,
Paul

Which actually had nothing to do with my explaining how a very low calorie diet can send the body to go into starvation mode. I wrote back that I would prefer him to stand by the money back guarantee, but have not had a reply.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

There is no "Starvation Mode"

AUTHOR: JoeReality - (United States of America)

Calories are a unit of heat.  You "Burn" calories moving around, exactly like a car "Burns" gas when it goes down the road.  There is *NO* difference.  The "Starvation Mode" excuse is made by people that don't want to stop poking food into their mouth.  You can't toss your body into a so called starvation mode.  When you raise your arm above your head it burns X amount of calories regardless of how much you eat.  If your arm is big it burns more, if your arm is skinny it burns less.  The only way you could be in "Starvation Mode" is if you didn't move your body.  Your car is in starvation mode when it is parked.  Why do super fat people that end up in the hospital and get tossed on 1000 calorie a day diets drop 5 pounds a day or more?  They don't go into some fantasy starvation mode.  Their normal body movements and functions burn off the weight very fast because they are so large.  Enough.  There is no starvation mode.  It's scientifically impossible.  Bodies burn calories to move.  If you want to see starvation mode do a google search for Starvation and then click image results.  You won't see many fat people.  Here's Weight Watcher's link to how starvation mode is a myth:  http://www.weightwatchers.com/util/art/index_art.aspx?tabnum=1&art_id=35501  Google Starvation Mode Myth.  Open your eyes, close your mouth :)
