Complaint Review: The Shepherd's Diet - Internet
As a veteran dieter, I've pretty much seen it all. But, when I found The Shepherd's Diet/TSD, I was extremely hopeful.
The very long intro video explained how through scripture and great study, Kristina Wilds had found a new infallible way to lose weight based on the Bible. I bought the program with excited hope and immediately read all the material. Imagine my saddened surprise to find that TSD was simply the Atkin's diet repackaged. That very same day, I wrote to TSD and requested a refund (which is guaranteed in the first 60 days). Though I was promised a response in 24 hours, 3 days later I was directed to another video that was intended to dispel the idea that TSD was the same as Atkins. What Kristina Wilds explained in the video was there were 3 ways her diet was totally different than Atkin's:
- Atkin's was not intended for long-term, lifetime use
- Atkin's didn't recommend the use of Ketostix to check your progress
- Atkin's didn't steer you away from Omega 6 fats as opposed to healthier Omega 3's
As I stated, I am a veteran dieter and I have in my own library 2 of Dr. Atkin's books. I promptly copied the pages in the books that showed #1 - 20 pages in Dr. Atkin's New Diet Revolution, dedicated to "Lifetime management"; #2 - 10 page references in the original Dr. Atkin's Diet Revolution regarding the purpose and use of Ketostix. #3 was not addressed by Dr. Atkin's specifically.
I created a pdf file of the above scanned information from these two books, still requesting my refund. I have been repeatedly been ignored and redirected. I informed customer service that I would be filing this report if my refund was denied, so here we are.
I hope this helps even just one person from not being taken as I was by this "Christian" diet scam.
