What does a pill advertised as Shark Tank’s biggest deal in history and a pill that was developed by a nutritional science master’s student at Stanford University have in common? They are both keto scams. After seeing the profile “Sarahjohnson.stanford” on Instagram (and it’s many other variations of Sarah and Stanford) we started to fall into the rabbit hole of keto weight loss scams. This person does not exist—in fact, it says so on the clickable link in her bio. There is a company out there using these Instagram accounts that have STOLEN transformation photos from other pages claiming that these individuals used their pill. There is an elaborate backstory as to how the pill was created, but the real kicker is that these ketogenic diet pills keep changing names.
Every time you click on the link you get a different name. Just in a matter of minutes we got the names: Keto Rapid Max Pure, Keto Legend, Holistic Bliss Keto, Keto Supreme, Keto Max Burn, Keto RX, and Envy Naturals Keto. None of these “keto pill” have ingredients, they have no explanation as to how they work even though they claim have been clinically tested, and they make ludicrous claims like being “scientifically proven to block fat”.
They rope you in by promising a free bottle of magic keto pills and free shipping but don’t tell you there is an automatic renewing fee. There are numerous complaints online on the Better Business Bureaus website about getting charge $90+ after trying to cancel the subscription.
Diving deeper into fraudulent keto / diet pills, we came across the keto shark tank diet pills that were supposedly the biggest deal ever on Shark Tank history—except they were never on shark tank, the photos they used from Shark Tank were stolen from different women, and the news reporters photos for their website were also stolen.
My friend, Suzanne Ryan (@ketokarma), had her photos stolen by the company Keto Slim Life (ketoslimlife.com) who claimed she lost 120 on their pill. This was completely false and belittled all of her hard work.
The bigger picture—losing money is terrible but what is even worse? Damaging someone’s health. We don’t know what are in these pills and they are completely unregulated. Not to mention the fact these pills won’t work and then people who took them will blame keto and exogenous ketones for not working rather than the shady company.
If you know me, you know I’m all about offense and I’m about to go on a ll out offensive front educating stronger than ever on keto as it relates to the diet and even exogenous ketones. Both can and do have an impact on optimizing human potential, but when taken at of context, it bring negative clout to the entire conversation – a conversation worth protecting.
Do me a huge favor and please always be cautious when buying any weight loss supplements. Additionally, thoroughly vet out exogenous ketones and understand that an effective dose isn’t delivered in a pill and 99.9% of companies are using a racemic mixture (another video on that soon) so effectively its less than 50% as effective as they are even claiming.
Here are a few red flags you should watch out for:
1. Are the ingredients listed?
2. Can you find REAL reviews on reputable websites?
3. If they are on social media, do they tag the original poster of before and after photos?
4. If it is BHB, is it in a pill? (it is very difficult to fit an efficacious dose of BHB in a pill)
5. Are they Ketogenic Certified ( Meaning that they have been tested for efficacy and artificial sweeteners.
