I recently debunked the benefits of raspberry ketones as a weight loss supplement in an effort to shed light on yet another overhyped and useless weight loss pill.
While a lot of people recommend raspberry ketones for weight loss (for example Dr. Oz), there are a few who have reported the truth. Among them is a nutritionist called Kimberly Snyder
Well the reason I bring this up today is to provide an interesting example of how little trust you can put in medical experts.
If you recall from above, Dr. Oz recommends raspberry ketones for weight loss. In fact, he’s such a staunch supporter of it that he featured it on his show and his website as a “fat burner in a bottle”.
Here’s the YouTube clip of the raspberry ketones segment from his show:
I don’t know Dr. Oz personally so I have no idea how he is off his show, but his unyielding confidence in promoting raspberry ketones as a fat burner on his show is very concerning.
Millions of people watch his show (are you one of them?) and I can only guess that most, if not all, will blindly take his recommendations as the truth.
If you haven’t read my report on raspberry ketones, I recommend you take a look through it, but the bottom line is simple: raspberry ketones do not work as a fat burner.
So what does Kimberly Snyder have to do with all this?
It just so happens that Miss Snyder also believes raspberry ketone pills don’t work and are “gimmicky”, but if you take a look at her website, you’ll notice that she’s “endorsed” by Dr. Oz.
Moreover, she is also a “reoccurring nutritional and beauty expert on The Dr. Oz Show”.
I won’t comment on any of Miss Snyder’s articles, but accepting an endorsement from someone who has a completely opposing/contradicting view on something as significant as a fat burning weight loss product should be an eye opener to all readers.
As for Dr. Oz, his public relations team definitely needs to do a better job screening for endorsements.
Anyways, my only point with all of this is be careful whom you trust and always scrutinize advice and recommendations (including mine)!
Just because someone is a medical expert or is endorsed by one, doesn’t make them any more credible to hand out medical, health, or nutritional advice.
If you’re bored, go to Google.com and type “raspberry ketones” and try to spot the irony. Or you can just look for it in this screenshot of the Google.com results.
