Fraud Alert - BodyRx & Dr. A. Scott Connelly1137 Dolphin Terrace Internet United States of America
Dr. A. Scott Connelly also know as Dr. Scott Connelly and his BodyRx program is a hoax and one that could cost you your life. My medical doctor this week just placed me onto a calorie restrictive diet and precribed me blood pressure medication. Prior to trying the BodyRx program, my blood pressure was find and I simply wanted to lose 15lbs from a few year of too much Christmas Cheers. The book touted "calories DO NOT matter" and that sounded good to me. My waist size though went up three inches, and then I began to have headaches. That is when I called my doctor and made an appointment.
It turns out, that he has seen countless patients both male and female. They all had poor results and he told me they all were put on the Lindora program to monitor thier caloric intake.I called Dr. Connelly and also sent he emails which were ignored up until he finally responded, with a very rude reply. He refused to refund my money. That is when I did a Google search and was shocked to see what Dr. A. Scott Connelly actually looks like in photos not enhanced by a computer, worse yet, I put the word 'fraud' into searching under his name and pulled up all his past lawsuits, one filed by the FTC for selling sterodial compounds to children.
Then I read a review by someone whom is actually studying nutrition in college, please read her review of the BodyRx program :
"Amy (Baylor Nutrition Science Student): I just finished my fall semester at Baylor University, where we had a project to evaluate pop-science diets. I thought it would be fun to evaluate a diet book that could be purchased for less than $6, so I picked up a copy of BodyRx by Scott Connelly. My professor didnt like the idea at first, stating that I should evaluate a diet created by a published nutritionist or scientist, his opinion was that medical doctors receive very little training on nutrition. I argued that since this author was behind a popular supplement that this book would be a fair critique of the science that fuels the supplement industry. He relented and I spent 90 days following this diet to the letter.
I wont rehash my entire paper, but here is a quick summary:
In summary, there are better diet books, by bonified scientists and nutritionists. This book is dangerous and should be avoided at all costs, because, frankly, it could kill you!" This diet also nearly killed me. Dr. Scott Connelly ridiculed my spelling and grammar when I sent him an email asking for a refund. I wanted to warn everyone before the New years diet begins, becareful of BodyRx and especially anything written by Dr. Scott Connelly.
