    New Book: The Skinny On Diet Supplements

    For those interested, my new book "The Skinny On Diet Supplements: Fact vs Fiction" is now available. Comes in hard copy/print version or on major e-reader formats (Kindle, etc) and covers the majority of ingredients one will find in weight loss supplements on the market: covered in my typical no BS concise objective manner that uses science and "real world" feedback.

    Just got this review from Dr. Silverman. Dr. Silverman is a plastic surgeon and life-time drug-free competitive bodybuilder

    Review: The Skinny On Diet Supplements by Rick Silverman M.D.
    :

    "If you’re the kind of person who likes to have the inside scoop, the real deal, the down and dirty on any given issue, then Will Brink’s book, “The Skinny on Diet Supplements,” should be on your required reading list for nutritional supplement information. This book is an encyclopedia of dietary supplements and their role in weight loss, looking at each item in an in-depth and organized way."

    I have always wondered how supplements can help you lose weight or heal quickly etc as its easy to imagine that you can gain weight with special diets. Then a lot of things turn out to be either scam, or are rumoured to be scams. Like the famous ASEA water, has actually helped my friend recover from a very sever chest infection very quickly. He even has not had that infection for a long time now (he is the allergic sort, remains sick most of the times) Then i have witnessed doctors recommending it. I wonder why would a learned and practiced person recommend something that does not help, after all its their profession. Will, you seem to know a lot, could you just put some light on these rumors or modified facts whatever.

    What actual medical support do you have for that claim? I hear claims like that made for all sorts of things I know don't do jack sh%$.

    What doctors? Legit docs that have no financial vested interests? I don't know a single MD currently recommending that product.

    It's called $$$ and people seem to like the stuff be they medical professionals or otherwise who should know better. The company is multi level marketing (MLM) if I'm not mistaken.

    See above. I have seen no hard data to support their many claims for the product, and as a rule, MLM is more about marketing hype than real science. Take anything you see with a HUGE grain O salt with claims being made.
