Hmmm… I’ll go with hoax, though it may well be that the guy honestly beleives in what he’s selling.

That’s always an interesting gray area - the hoaxers and snake-oil salesmen who actually, honestly believe in what they’re doing.

Dieting cure-alls are nothing new, and this appears to be a good amount of pseudoscience and blather, wrapped up in enough testimonials to sink a battleship.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?

I guess Kent Hovind honestly believed himself when he said that eating peach pits (which contain cyanide) cures cancer.

But yeah, I’d also say any diet for money is a hoax, since the only surefire (safe) method is eat a regulated diet and exercise properly.

Hey, eat enough cyanide and it will stop the cancer and even prevent any more from forming in you ever again!  wink

Well, I guess that is true (like the anti-aging pills that kill you raspberry).
I did laugh when he praised Native Americans for chewing willow bark (which he also claimed cured scurvy) and laughed at people for taking aspirin. Or when he said warts were caused by zinc deficiency.

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.
