Don’t fall for the rice weight loss diet “hack” recipe that claims there’s an “exotic rice method” or a “Hollywood secret” that can help you shed pounds. It’s not legit. Paid posts are showing up on Facebook and Instagram with videos of people mixing different pantry ingredients like apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, baking soda and other stuff, as if there’s some special mixture that can help you lose weight. There is no rice weight loss diet “hack” recipe. It’s fake. After you follow the paid post and go to the last page, it’s simply a bottle of pills called Puravive.
The rice weight loss diet “hack” recipe does not exist. Also, Jennifer Lopez, Dr. Oz and Ben Affleck have nothing to do with any of this, despite the existence of videos on Facebook and Instagram that make it sound like Oz endorsed the product and Lopez lost weight with it. It’s all a big scam. You can’t find any information about who founded the product called Puravive, who makes it, who works for the company, where it’s made, where it was tested, etc. There really are so many red flags.
If you want to lose weight, talk to a doctor. Ask them what they recommend. That’s the best way forward. Don’t buy into scammy online paid posts that claim to have THE big secret thing that has been missing from the world for so many years, as if someone finally discovered a miracle recipe mixture or product that can help you lose weight. It’s a fantasy state of mind to think that way.
I noticed rice weight loss diet going around as a Google trend on Jan. 28, 2024. I couldn’t believe that this scam for this nonexistent recipe had become so big, but it makes sense with the way that Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, have allowed the scam to be promoted in such a huge way.
The FDA published a helpful page once called, “Tainted Weight Loss Products.” Here’s a link: https://www.fda.gov/drugs/medication-health-fraud/tainted-weight-loss-products.
Also, the FTC published an article titled, “The Truth Behind Weight Loss Ads.” Here’s that link: https://consumer.ftc.gov/articles/truth-behind-weight-loss-ads.
