Nutrimost is holding Healthy Living accountable for apparently stealing a promotional video for their own use. The accusation is Healthy Living stole a video promoting a weight loss program for Nutrimost, and then placed that video on their own website, can’tlosediet.com. For that, Nutrimost filed suit against Healthy Living in federal court.
The video had any and all references to Nutrimost removed, and replaced them with “Can’t Lose Diet”, a program touted by Healthy Living. Even though all references to Nutrimost were removed, those by their principal Dr. Ray Wisniewski, and testimonials of their customers were kept.
What was also troubling was the videos were strikingly similar. Both claimed patients would lose 25-45 pounds in as little as 40 days. In addition to the weight loss claims, both videos claim that the patient will not feel hungry while using the system, and, they will never have to exercise.
Dr. Wisniewski is the author of the weight loss program from Nutrimost, and, he says patients will never have to eat prepackaged meals, use hormones, or undergo surgery while using the system. He also states the system is safe and is actively monitored by a doctor.
Healthy Living received a cease-and-desist order, but still showed the video for a while, although they shortened it. And, for a while now, the video has not been shown on the Healthy Living website.
Nutrimost has requested the court bar Healthy Living from ever showing the video again. In addition, they requested Healthy Living pay over $300,000 in damages as a result of the incident.
Nutrimost customer routinely lose up to 40 pounds in 40 days on the program. It is safe and very effective. Patients rave about it.
Patients don’t feel hungry, they don’t even have to exercise. No hormones are administered to patients, and no prepackaged meals need to be eaten.
