I’ve been lurking in various blogs today and stopped in at CultFit, which I find to be an excellent site full of great information on getting fit. Something I am striving to do. I was delighted to find diet and exercise information. When I stumbled onto the Velocity Diet I was entranced. Why this sounds fabulous. It sounds so good in fact that I begin to think it’s too good to be true. But I keep reading, and it still sounds like something I might try to do. At one point, they state, so there is no “gotcha” at the end, purchase of their supplements is part of the program. Well, I think to myself, they sure are being upfront and I keep reading about this wonderful product.
Eventually, I come down to entering my name, weight and birthdate into their calculator to provide my personalized daily menu. As I read the menu I wondered when the program offers me something else to eat other than the supplements and shakes. Well, they said at the beginning, this diet is a bitch. Wow, its giving me all this information. Daily guide. All I have to do is commit to it and spend $400 on the supplements. Then I plugged in my H’s info. He would need nearly $500 worth of supplements.
I must thank you, CultFit. I believed the part about being upfront and avoiding a “gotcha” moment. Unfortunately, you still “got” me at the end when I looked at the price of 28 days of the V-Diet. It was the best laugh I’ve had in I don’t know how long. I laughed so hard tears came to my eyes. All I kept thinking was “gotcha!”
I know people spend more than $400 on gym memberships, so maybe that amount of money isn’t as much as it seems to me. Then again, aren’t I worth $400 to get into the best shape of my life? I’d really like to try it. I think I can commit to doing anything for 28 days.
The only question I still have is: Will I buy my one month supply, or use that $400 to pay my HOA fees?
