Watchdog Diet Investigations

Here at Diet Pills Watchdog we don’t just review diet pills, we spend hundreds of hours researching topics that we feel you need to know about such as the latest diet scams, banned ingredients and tips to help you with your weight loss journey.

Mgnifying Glass

There’s a lot of danger surrounding the diet pill world, with the industry earning $32 billion per year. And with diet pills coming out of the woodworks at a furious pace, there’s bound to be a few that are less than perfect.

We’ve investigated a range of topics from tips for when you’re in the gym to the dangers of certain diet pills to the best superfoods at the moment. Our job is to inform you about what is going on and what is important. We feel that you should be informed about every aspect of losing weight, not just the diet pill side. After all, a diet pill won’t miraculously help if you aren’t changing your lifestyle as well.

Our investigations are always in-depth pieces of work that cover every corner of whatever subject we are discussing, with links to further reading, quotes from professionals and fascinating facts to peak your interest.

In the past, we’ve investigated certain ingredients that have been proven to not provide any health benefits, and can, in fact, cause you damage such as the dangerous DNP that caused a few people their lives.

As well as this we have taken a topic such as the popular Teatox fad and investigated the product as a whole and then went into more detail doing mini-reviews of three or four products to give you an overview of that part of the market. Our aim is to do more of these so that you feel confident when it comes to what makes a diet pill good and what makes it bad. Not only that but it will help you to figure out the difference between certain types of diet pills.

Below is a long list of all the topics we have covered. If you want us to look at anything in particular then get in touch with us. The same goes for if you’ve been the victim of a scam or have had a bad reaction to something. We want to help save the world from the bad apples of the diet industry.
