Pure Weight Loss used to be a part of the more well-known L.A. Weight LossÂ® Centers. After a time, Pure Weight Loss split off from L.A. Weight LossÂ® and went off on its own. Evidently, this was a poor decision. And in 2008, Pure Weight Loss became unviable.
The reasons for Pure Weight Lossâs failure are varied. According to company representatives, Pure Weight Loss simply couldnât keep up with the fierce competition, the new Alli prescription, similar weight loss programs, and the difficult economic situation in the United States right now. And it couldnât have helped that Pure Weight Loss was involved in some lawsuits over the misrepresentation of the costs of their services. Pure Weight Loss may also have made false claims about the companyâs weight loss program.
Program at a Glance
Itâs not really that easy to find descriptions of a failed companyâs weight loss program. However, some review sites have posted scant descriptions of Pure Weight Lossâs methodology.
Program in Focus
If we go by L.A. Weight LossâsÂ® program, plus the sketches of Pure Weight Loss offered by old review sites, we discover that Pure Weight Loss focused on diet reform and exercise as the two foundational methods of weight loss. Thatâs good news, as most of us recognize the crucial role these play in significant, sustainable weight loss.
Some have suggested that the Pure Weight Loss diet program was based on a ratio scheme derived from the good old food pyramid. But dieters were also directed to try various supplements and bars. In short, there seems to be a balanced approach here â at least when it comes to eating.
The problem may have been the underplayed role of exercise in the overall weight loss program. If exercise is not properly emphasized, it wonât matter how one eats or supplements. The weight will not come off well. It may b little wonder then that Pure Weight Loss was accused of misrepresenting its own program. and, it may also be that the âcounselorsâ were encouraged to sell, sell, sell and play on the emotions of the consumer â a complaint lodged at former siser company L.A. Weight Loss as well.
â¢ Company failure sensitizes consumers to other weight loss centers.
â¢ Closed down, apparently for good.
â¢ Accused of dishonesty.
Pure Weight Loss failed for a reason. Luckily, no more consumers have to find out the hard way. If youâre shopping around for a weight loss center, look for one that advocates balance in diet and exercise. Supplementation is a bonus, but will be ineffective without diet and exercise firmly in place. Weight loss centers donât have to fail like Pure Weight Loss. Hopefully yours wonât.
