22 stone Kristy was pictured next to a slim, size 6 lady, who was supposed to be her after taking the pills. In actual fact the woman was Taryn Wright who actually had lost 98lbs with their miracle “skinny pill”.
What an amazing transformation. Or was it?
The scam website claimed Kristy's name was Sarah Wright, 31, from Essex, and placed her photo next to the slim "after" size 6 picture.
Taryn Wright: The actual diet model
Kirsty has now hit out at the fraudsters, while bosses at Women's Health magazine have launched an investigation.
Kirsty said, 'It's a joke. It seems very mean. They've made up a story, changed my name to Sarah and thought that I looked like a fatter version of this model."
They made me a year older, a divorcee, moved me down to Essex and made me out to be a size six."
The real website of Women's Health Magazine said of the fake site:
'You may have seen websites purporting to be Women's Health UK selling dietary and weight loss supplements.'Please be aware that these websites are not connected with Women's Health in any way and we do not promote or endorse any dietary supplements of this nature.'
A spokesperson for Hearst Magazines UK said, 'Women's Health is not in any way connected to this fake company or the products it claims to sell.
How would you react if you found a picture of yourself as the "before" photo claiming that you lost a huge amount of weight?
