Healthy Living has come under a Federal Lawsuit filed by Nutrimost for the apparent theft of a promotional video the company Nutrimost posted to it’s website. Healthy Living took the video, posted it to their own website after removing all references to Nutrimost.
Those references to Nutrimost were replaced with “Can’t Lose Diet”, and customer testimonials remained. Healthy Living even kept the promotional videos’ principal author, Dr. Ray Wisniewski, in the video.
The apparently stolen video and the original promotional video by Nutrimost both make identically worded claims about the effectiveness of the weight loss plan. Both videos say that a typical person can lose 20 to 45 pounds or more in 40 days of using the program.
Both companies make the same claim that you don’t have to exercise, use drugs, or pre-packaged meals in any way. They both also make the same claim that it’s a safe program that’s doctor supervised.
A cease-and-desist letter was issued to Heathy Living, but the stolen video was still shown although it was made a little shorter. Nutrimost has asked the court to keep Healthy Living from showing the stolen video ever again and has asked for at least $300,000 in damages.
No spokesperson from Healthy Living could be found for comment on the lawsuit.
Nutrimost offers the most effective method of losing weight. They call it the “the Ultimate Fat Loss System. They claim you can lose 20 to 40 pounds of fat in 40 days with no exercise, drugs, or pre-packaged meals.
Dr. Ray Wisniewski, the principal of the program, practices “pastoral medicine”, which is the use of science along with spiritual health wisdom. Nutrimost claims its program is safe and supervised.
