    The "app" diet

    Many different applications now exist for your smartphone that are meant to help you stay on track with your diet, so we decided to put a few to the test.

Get paid to lose weight? That's one radio commercial that would catch your attention.

A weight control radio commercial claims you can get paid to lose five to seven pounds per week.

The product is called Raspberry Ketone, and you can find it anywhere on the web. But this particular offer came from a company called Simple Pure Nutrition.

Raspberry Ketone allegedly boosts metabolism and burns stored fat into energy, all while not having to change your diet or add an exercise routine. The buzz on this product is widespread.

Pure Simple promises to pay $5.00 for every pound lost, after reaching a target weight loss goal. It appears as if Simple Pure Nutrition is looking for real testimonials from real people using their product.

The trial begins with a phone call to enroll. However, the company turns what could be a much shorter registration focused call into a time taxing sales pitch.

It turns out not much if anything about this trial is without cost. We find a cost of $49.00 per month for the first two months use. Pressure to reach that weight loss goal. The company tries to set up automatic monthly shipping of the pills.

Studies show people motivated by money lose more weight than people who aren't. In the case of this offer, a 30 day money back guarantee in case it doesn't work is also intended to motivate.

In addition to the two months' supply cost; there is a shipping cost of $10.00. However, they told us signing up with Freeshipping.com, which offers free shipping from all kinds of companies, we would get a rebate. This is another subscription requiring cancellation not to get automatically billed. For this 'free trial', there are a lot of costs adding up.

When you do receive the diet pills, they come with a long list of 32 steps to read through. Among them are instructions to lose 10 pounds a month minimum and take 12 'before' pictures and 12 'after' pictures in various different poses. Plus multiple 30 second videos of physical changes, all of which were not mentioned during the long enrollment call.

The company encourages working out and dieting along with taking the supplement. They sent multiple exercise DVDs that result in charges unless the DVDs are sent back. Turns out the DVDs are also part of a subscription package that needs to be canceled to avoid further charges.

One note: The FDA hasn't approved these supplements for weight loss, and there is no evidence the product actually works. So it appears the only thing getting smaller here may be your wallet.
