Weight Loss TV Pitchman Found Guilty in Chicago

Share this post

A federal jury in Chicago claims TV pitchman Kevin Trudeau violated an order barring him from making false claims about his best-selling weight loss book. ABC News reports jurors needed just 45 minutes to decide that Trudeau had made false claims about his diet books. In the infomercials for "The Weight-Loss Cure 'They' Don't Want you to Know About", Trudeau claims that his cure wasn't a diet, and required no exercise or supplements. However, the book requires intake of just 500 calories a day, long daily walks, and daily injections of prescription hormones. He could spend the rest of his life behind bars when he's sentenced. No sentencing date has been set.
