One of the biggest diet trends of 2013 was Raspberry Ketones, no doubt its appearance on the Dr Oz Show had something to do with it.
Even now sales of supplements containing this ingredient are booming, yet there is also a worrying trend for trials that are leaving many people annoyed and out of pocket.
One supplement available on a trial is Ketone Advanced, but does this automatically mean that it is a scam and should be avoided?
We will have to look at this supplement in more detail before we come to our conclusion.
Claims made by Ketone Advanced?
The following claims are made by Ketone Advanced:
- Lose your cravings
- Burn stored fat
- Retain muscle mass
- Stop feeling hungry
- Eat less, feel better
Now, these claims are to be expected on a website selling diet supplements. We would need to look at the ingredients found within Ketone Advanced before we can verify if these claims are accurate.
Ingredients of Ketone Advanced?
Ketone Advanced contains Raspberry Ketones, Caffeine, Green Tea extract, Apple Cider Vinegar, Kelp and Grapefruit.
Like so many supplements available on the market there is no mention of what dosages are present.
This is not a good start for Ketone Advanced and should be a red flag that something is not quite right.
How will you know if a supplement is going to be effective if there is no way of knowing what it contains?
Cost of Ketone Advanced?
The most worrying aspect of Ketone Advanced is its price.
Upon signing up for the ‘trial’ you will no doubt be charged for the postage, but you may not be aware that if you do not cancel within 14 days of signing up you will be charged an astonishing £94.97. You will then be charged this amount monthly until you cancel your membership.
This price is ridiculous, especially when you compare it with other Raspberry Ketone supplements.
Once signed up you may find that you are unable to cancel or get a refund, as these are common issues associated with auto-ship programs such as this.
Lorraine Kelly controversy
Having been alerted to an advert featuring herself that claimed that she had lost weight using Ketone Advanced, Lorraine Kelly has threatened legal action against the company behind the scam.
This is not the first time that she has been caught up in a diet pill scam, as in June 2013 she along with other celebrities such as Kate Middleton, Victoria Beckham and Adele had their images used in a similar fashion.
It is best that you stay on guard if you see an advert featuring a celebrity endorsing a diet pill.
Is Ketone Advanced a scam?
The terms and conditions are available on the website so Ketone Advanced are not breaking any laws. They are just hoping that people will sign up without reading them.
Once the 14 day trial period has elapsed there is very little you can do, which will no doubt lead to claims that Ketone Advanced is a scam.
For this reason we cannot endorse the Ketone Advanced trial. Auto-ship programs are best avoided, the true cost will shock you.
