Following up on Accipiter's post
in the forum about the Acai berry weight-loss scam -- one of the interesting (and sleazy) things about the scam is the proliferation of fake diet blogs promoting these Acai berries. The sites go by names such as kirstensweightloss.com, rachelsweightloss.com, patdietblog.com, etc. etc.
The sites have before and after pictures of the Acai berry dieters, but pictures of the same women appear on different sites... under different names. For instance, the woman below, depending on which site you visit, is named Kirsten Hunt
, Ann Conrad
, Daniella Conrad
, Jenna Patterson
, and a bunch of other names.
But according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest
, her real name is Julia. She's a german model who once posed for a stock photo
and has never eaten Acai berries. According to the photographer who took the photos, the "after" photos have been digitally manipulated to make her look skinnier.
The wafflesatnoon blog has a collection of all the fake diet girls
who are promoting Acai berries.
