The Skinny on Diet Supplements: Fact Vs Fiction, now available!

This comprehensive book covers over 40 of the most common and popular supplement ingredients that create many well-known diet supplements sold on the market. I use my  20+ years in the supplement industry to break through the hype and mystery surrounding the base components of the VAST majority of the diet supplements sold – their ingredients – and explains how they work using easy to understand language.

In this book,  I put the power of knowledge into the readers hands by teaching them how to judge if a supplement is likely to be effective for weight loss based on its ingredients; using an easy to understand format for the beginner, but with additional scientific extrapolation for the more advanced and experienced. I cover what really works and what has real science to support it, vs the invented pseudo-science used by many companies to sell ineffective – and potentially dangerous – diet supplements.

This is  info most supplement companies wished you didn’t have access to, because a truly informed and educated consumer is not what they want!

Using this book to choose your next supplement purchase allows you to discern the “good” supplement ingredients from the “bad,” and understand why some ingredients are added to supplements in such minute amounts that doing so is known in the industry as “label decoration” and other tricks of the trade.

I have a level of experience and knowledge of the industry that few  possess, and even fewer willing to write about it honestly. I’m an industry insider who pulls no punches; I have learned from consulting to major supplement companies, designing supplements, and writing extensively many years  for the many international and well-known health and fitness magazines.   This information is what I give to  the reader of The Skinny on Diet Supplements.

Remember, there’s many people on the ‘net pushing books or vids or what ever claiming to know the ‘inside info’ on weight loss supplements who have never stepped foot into a supplement manufacturing facility, much less have been hired to design supplements! Their info generally comes from third party sources and gets packaged and sold to you and it’s usually simply wrong, or the author motivated to sell you their wonder weight loss supplement.

This book will pay for itself 100 times over with what you will learn in it, and the smart decisions you will make from it. So many choices out there, so much confusion…no more!

So what works? What might be worth trying, and what’s a total waste of your hard earned money?! I break the supplements covered into easy to follow categories, so the reader can, once and for all, make informed decisions on their supplements taken for losing weight.

This book comes in popular e-reader formats or hard copy/print version, so you can choose your preferred method of reading:

    Ordered the Kindle version; great read! While the writing is not the “standard text book” style, the information is easy to read, easy to comprehend, and makes it easier for us to make your own personal choices – which is why I bought the book in the first place. If I wanted all the science behind every supplement or chemical compound, there are journals for that, but who has the time when Will does it for you. I trust the information presented, and found exactly what I was looking for. Nice job Will.

      Glad you are finding the new book helpful. If you could leave those same comments at Amazon where you got your Kindle version as a review, that would be very helpful helping me get the word out about this new book 🙂

    Will, Brink Zone is starting to look and feel like an infomercial ….several double duplicate postings of products and/or services for $…. is there any end in site or will this be the “new” look and “feel” for the site for the foreseeable future. Clearly a shift in content here. Solid information replaced with T-shirt/Book/Product selling.. I have not deleted the bookmark yet, but I am close.
    Do you feel you have gone too far with the selling ?

      Considering the shear amount of free info here, no, no I don’t think I have gone too far. I’m working hard to extend the BZ name and info, and (hopefully) offering services and products that people like and or will help them achieve their goals, saving them years of wasted time and $$$. The site is probably still 95% content driven (all free) and still the best site of it’s kind on the ‘net. I’m a tad biased however 🙂

    Hi Will,
    I was wondering if you could tell me what is the difference between “The Skinny on Diet Supplements” and “The Sports Supplement Bible”?

    • Author

      There’s a write up on both here on the site, but as the name implies, one covers sports supplements, the other covers supplements specific to weight loss. You can also see the contents covered for both books on any of those major sellers linked to see what supplements are covered if interested. Both come in either EPub or hard copy, and choice or either linked here. Hope that answers your Q.
