The Miami Heart Institute diet scam is the latest in a long line of money making scams that leave hundreds of thousands of people out of pocket.
I decided to spread the word about this scam as it has been more successful than many others, this is probably because it claims to be from the American Heart Association when in fact is isn’t!
This scam is also doing the rounds under many guises, it’s also known as the American Heart Association Diet, The Cleveland Clinic Diet and the Spokane Heart Diet. They are all one and the same and are worthless!
Why Has This Scam Been So Successful?
I believe this scam made such an impact for the following reasons:
- It preys on an out of shape persons insecurities about their weight
- The risks appear low, it costs only $2
- It’s from a respected official body
Insecurity + Low Risk + Credibility = Consumer Trust
How do I know if it’s The Miami Heart Institute Diet?
The fake MHI diet contains a 3 day menu including vanilla ice cream, hot dogs, eggs and cheddar cheese. It promises 10 pounds weight loss in 3 days.
If it sounds too good to be true……
Is there an Official American Heart Association Approved Diet?
The American Heart Association does have an official diet, it’s called the no fad diet and can be found on their website. There is also some information about their
diet and lifestyle recommendations.
The recommendations are general health guidelines and seem to toe the mainstream line recommending cutting saturated fat and lowering cholesterol. Pretty standard stuff, though not stuff I agree with.
I have no experience of the diet they recommend as the diets I utilise and recommend are based on body composition and efficiency.
