The Low Carb WiO Diet Scam is located in West Jordan, Utah and is now the newest and perhaps the worst low carb scam I have encountered to date…and…this is a dandy folks. WiO Diet stands for Weight Is Over your last Diet pretty tricky huh? The brains behind this low carb scam company? Jason B. Whitney & Nirav Dhruv and this is charlatanism & quackery at its best.
WiO Diet is not as large as the JULIAN BAKERY but make no mistake, they are at least as egregious. This company is aggressively targeting diabetics and the lowcarb community along the East Coast and is now attempting to move west. It is my opinion they targeted the East Coast first because of the population concentration in New York and all along the Eastern Seaboard. They have even been so bold as to compare their products to some legitimate lowcarb breads and muffins. Thin Slim pizza & muffins, Mama Lupes tortillas (I question these too), Godiva chocolates, & The Great Low Carb Bread Company. Click on the chart to the left twice and you can easily see the comparisons. It’s spelled out perfectly saying “apples-to-apples” with WiO products highlighted in green. Speaking of apples look at their apple pie label below. 6g carbohydrate and 13g fiber. Um…not possible.
I am making it easy for you to look at the products as well as their labels. As you look at each label note the placement of “Net Carbohydrate”. This listing in a nutritional label is totally illegal. Many of the labels make absolutely no sense. I would strongly advise you not eat any of these products. Of the pictures and labels shown I have had two products (the White Flour & Rolls) laboratory tested at Exova and the comparison labels are below.
My personal glucose testing of one Wio Diet Smart Roll.
I want to emphasize that I DO NOT inject insulin and I DO NOT take any diabetic drugs which in my opinion makes me a perfect guinea pig to test any supposed low carb product.
Enlarge pictures below for a closer look and most of the labels have the ingredients listed. Will there always be believers? Yep, and let em believe. If food laboratory testing doesn’t change their minds then no matter what I say certainly won’t.
Ronald Reagan famously said, “Trust but Verify”. At the signing of the INF Treaty, his counterpart Mikhail Gorbachev responded: “you repeat that at every meeting,” to which Reagan answered: “I like it”…I like it too.
