I hope everyone enjoyed wonderful holidays and I expect that, like me, your 2014 is already well underway. Also, I don’t know about you, but there is something peculiar about typing the year “2014.” It seems like some futuristic date from a science-fiction novel, yet it is the year in which we are all now living. Whatever happened to George Orwell’s 1984 or Y2K or 2001: A Space Odyssey? How odd that all those futuristic dates are now part of the distant past. Time does not merely march on, it flies by.
First off, I wanted to apologize for not writing this blog post sooner, but the end of the year has been as family-filled and work-filled as I could handle. I am getting ready to head to HSN for my shows this Saturday and Sunday, so I now have a chance to catch my breath and write a quick blog post about what you can expect this weekend. From what I have heard and read, it appears most of you already know which of our most popular products will be our Today’s Specials (this weekend, Secure Complete Meal Replacement and Energy and Fat Metabolism Factors and next weekend, Circulation and Vein Support for Healthy Legs and Glucosamin-1500 with Chondroitin-1200). Plus, based upon popular request we will kick off each weekend with a Variety Show beginning on Saturday the 11th at noon (ET) and then again on Friday the 17th at 10 PM (ET). Each Variety Show is very fast moving and features approximately 20 products! Of course, throughout the entire visit, all products will be available at exceptional value pricing and with free shipping and handling.
Before I speak about our first Today’s Special for our Secure Complete Meal Replacement, I thought it appropriate that I applaud the recent efforts of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) as it relates to a number of false weight-loss products – specifically one called Sensa. Sensa is a ridiculous weight-loss product and I have never been shy about commenting on their deceptive practices. I am pleased that their deceptive advertising will cease. I have always been at an extreme ethical disadvantage to others who deceptively promote magic weight-loss, since I emphasize that weight-loss requires effort and above all, it requires that we must change what we eat. Others, like Sensa and Dr. Oz, would have you believe that you can just sprinkle fairy dust on your food or swallow magic pills and the fat will magically melt away. Overweight and obesity likely pose the single greatest risk to the health of our country and it is outrageous for these folks to betray our trust and deceive millions of Americans. I applaud the FTC for punishing Sensa’s deceptive advertising. For a blast from the past, you might find it amusing to read my blog post from 2009 after Sensa’s products briefly appeared at HSN. HSN abandoned Sensa after I encouraged them to read the science – or more accurately the absence of science.
When it comes to weightloss, there are no shortcuts. If it sounds too good to be true…then it is too good to be true. I wish there were magic weight-loss pills, but they do not exist and I will always be at a disadvantage to those willing to lie to promote magic weightloss. Well truth be told, there is magic in weightloss and that is the magic that exists in each of us to make better choices. Secure is simply designed to be a healthy choice and follows the abundant research showing Meal Replacements to be among the most effective tools for reducing caloric intake and achieving weightloss. Mind you, Secure is no ordinary meal replacement, but the best tasting, lowest calorie and most nutritious meal replacement of its kind, and despite all of that, it is also likely the most affordable as well. This Sunday your favorite flavors are bundled with our most popular weight-loss support supplement – our Energy and Fat Metabolism Factors. It is not a magic pill, but is designed to support you through the predictable challenges we encounter when making the changes required for weight-loss. Best of all, when you use Secure, not only will you save calories, but you will also save money, since I am not aware of other meals that cost as little 50 cents. I look forward to sharing more about Secure and the science of weightloss when I see you on Sunday.
Next week, I will post another article discussing next weekend’s Today’s Specials, Circulation and Vein Support for Healthy Legs and Glucosamine-Chondroitin. You might think there are other products just like these in the marketplace, but that is not the case. I hope you tune-in next weekend to learn about their unique ingredients and the powerful properties they possess to make a meaningful difference in your life.
Again, Healthy New Year.
See you soon.
