  • I almost bought some until I read the fine print. It said the first month is 3 dollars and some change. but it says after the $3 charge they will charge your card for the next month. that is why I didn't do it.

  • I always look on or better business bureau before buying anything from an unknown vendor or online site.

  • I know of at least 2 other people this has happened too.
    You always need to read the small print.
    I think you have to send back the jar with more than half the tablets left and get it there by a certain day not to have to pay anymore than the original charge.

  • I did the same thing but never got charged again, and they didn't work. The news has been saying acai berry is the best weight loss but becarful for scams. And I thought the ones I were buying were real, but they didn't do anything. Call a lawyer to help you. I would call just to get info on how to go about getting your money back.

  • When you go on a diet, or use a diet aid, you are just putting yourself on the gain/loss rollercoaster; frustrating for you, & hard on your body. You will never learn portion control with Atkins. In order to maintain a healthy weight, you need to have a healthy lifestyle; this has the added bonus of setting a great example for your kids.
    First, start walking; at least 20 min a day at least 3 times a week. Next, drink your water! at least 8 8oz glasses a day. Next, eat your fruits & veggies! 7-8 servings a day, in at least three different colors. Eat your whole grains (loaded with fiber, protein, and lots of energy-giving nutrients), 7 servings a day. Cut way back on (or eliminate) meat & dairy. Add beans, lentils & tofu to your diet. You can get free meal plans and recipes from Dr. McDougall, or find his books at your local library: .Feel free to ask me any questions. -Robin
