    No, that business was shut down due to false claims.

    That was sarcasm.!

    Addison replied

    I know, Janet, I was going along with you!

    Celia replied

    Yeah, janet…I hope he markets something authentic. I do wish him the best, but liquid diets are kind of ‘iffy’….not healthy and not endorsed by ‘caring’ doctors.

    Steve Burton, since around 2005, has looked so bloated, though. Very similar to somebody that abuses steroids.

    I doubt people will take diet advice from him.

  3. Addison says:

    Why does this actor, who clearly does not need more money, keep coming up with these get rich quick schemes which always seem a bit shady in a pyramid scheme kind of way?
    I checked out the ingredients on his Whey protein powder and they’re pretty standard. I have a jar of why protein in my pantry which sounds identical to the one he’s now pitching only the one I bought cost half as much.
    Moreover, his approach in substituting a protein shake for a meal is hardly a ground breaking concept as this diet strategy has been around since the 80s.

    I don’t know about that, Terri. I’m a woman, and not going nuts. I have never found him attractive…..ever!!
    Most women like a toned male body….not necessarily bulging muscles. Personally, it’s a turn off….too beefy.
    No doctor would ever advise someone to diet on these liquid mixtures. Not healthy!!

    Addison replied

    I know, Terri, and I find it depressing and disheartening.

    Timmm replied

    Dont think you are going to buy Burton’s Brew, drink it and he is going to track you down and marry you!

    Julia, my heart goes out to you. Please, I urge you to go talk to your doctor about this.
    Steve Burton cannot help you. All he can help you do is help you part with your money.
    You can do this, but I totally understand why you feel helpless.
    Please consider Weight Watchers or any medically supervised diet. If you’re a member of Kaiser, they offer a medically supervised diet.
    I just urge you to not fall victim to these typea of scams. They will only make your pocket book lighter, not your body.
    YOU can do this!

    Oh for gosh sakes if this is for real see a Internal Medicine doctor they specialize in this! The world has gone stark raving mad a soap actor giving diet advice!!!

    Timmm replied

    Why shade Steve? He is a good guy. He is not a miracle worker! He wouldnt put his name on something to hurt someone or steal their money! Sometimes in life with good intentions people will give YOU the wrong information unintentionally!

    I’m saddened by people that would go to such efforts to make rude remarks about Steve Burton on here. They must not have much else to do with their time. I love you and your efforts to better your life on and off screen, Steve. ‘Haters gonna hate.’ Right?

    It saddens me that people take advantage of fans that buy into this nonsense stick to acting and not medical advice next thing you know he will have a brain surgery video out!!! Enough!!

    Timmm replied

    I agree with you. I like Steve. I am not in his fan club. I commend him for trying something different. These soaps, they are great but at ABC and NBC, they constantly play with the actors futures and us fans. Everyone needs a plan B. Go Steve!

    Celia replied

    Okay, Timmmy, granted. I am sure Steve has gone through the right channels to market his product. But, advocating it on these sites could be perilous. He has the advantage because of his celebrity status….no excuse.
    Case in point…..The above lady, Julia Rich. We are not talking about a few pounds here. No liquid diet in the world can help someone lose that much weight without drastic consequences.
    Kay is right. No one is in any position to give ‘lose weight fast’ advise. People will do drastic things when in drastic situations. This is flirting with danger.
    This amount of weight loss needs to be monitored…step by step and by a medical expert in the field. Who can lose that much weight in a few months without irreparable damage? And, a cardiologist should always be consulted!!!!! Heart attacks have happened due to dieting and messing with the wrong ‘stuff’.
    Steve has every right to advertize; just not here. Many people are ultra-vulnerable, not thinking about any health risks.
    Just my opinion, my Timmmy. Love you. Bye.

    Addison replied

    Oh cry me a river! Positioned at the top of the pyramid, Burton made a killing off of the aquia berry juice business not to mention the fortune he made as one of the highest paid day time actors in recent history. Check out the price of this protein powder and compare it to similar powders which are available at GNC and note the mark up disparities. This angers me because there are folks out there who are desperate for help who, unlike Mr. Burton, are living pay check to pay check (see Julia Rich’s post above ). There are folks out there who trust Mr Burton because they know him as GH’s Jason and/or Y&R’s Dylan . And yes, he looks amazingly well, so therefore, they purchase latest product he is touting be it aquai berry juice, acting lessons or protein diet shakes.
    I still like Burton as an actor, loved him as both Jason and Dylan. But I am tired of all these marketing schemes.

    Rude remarks, Angela? It is a fact that liquid diets with ‘bad’ ingredients kill….especially our youth. I am sure Steve is an honest man. However, be that as it may, I just caution people to consult with a doctor before going on any diet or ingesting anything.
    We gave general comments here; not attacking Burton personally. Let’s hope his brand is nutritious and en par with the FDA….this is his second time around!!
    As I said, I wish him the best.

    Celia I could not stay silent on this enough I am tired of actors I use that word loosely taking advantage of viewers for their financial gain my gosh people get sucked into anything ! This is free advice low carb diet and exercise works wonders and I just gave it FREE

    Exactly, Kay. I am not knocking Steve’s brand. I simply care about people ….big, damaging mistake for consumers to blindly go on a diet of this kind, simply because it is pushed by a celebrity, as you say. I repeat, I am not targeting Steve….speaking in general, here.
    Someone very close to me is a Cardiologist…..Soooo…..

    Timmm replied

    Great advice K. Richard Simmons meant well with his programs. Some do, most dont but the public gets desperate and Hollywood envious!

    Timmm replied

    I agree with you, everyone should consult a doctor and or a nutritionist. “Magic juice or Pills” are ridiculous for sure but maybe he uses and believes in the product. He seems like a good guy who wouldnt sell something he didnt believe in?

    Steve should stick to acting instead of his “get rich quick” schemes. I remember a few years ago Steve promoted diet shakes and it went bust then. He was passionate about that. Then it was the berry juice that went bust for him. He was passionate about that too.

    This Hollywoodschooling deal with Derk Cheetwood, IMO, is just to help out of work Derk make some money. So he’s helping him. Now it’s time to help out his brother-in-law (who probably needs the money) so make it a family investment.

    Steve is promoting diet and nutrition, but promotes his Jack and Jameson restaurant in TN that is loaded with calories if you eat there.

    I predict within one year, SB is back on a soap (if they are still out there) working full time to feed his family.

    I have mixed feelings about this. Burton’s not claiming to be a doctor…he’s not selling anything that isn’t already out there. He’s banking on his celebrity…just like so many other actors from Paul Newman’s sauces to cat food…Suzanne Somers…celebs who endorse others products they probably know nothing about and on and on.

    One has to be an informed consumer. Obviously Steve’s in great physical shape, he said he’s going for his nutrition certificate…his wife and brother-in-law have certificates…they all exercise and are role models for those who aspire to get in shape. As long as he’s not touting anything dangerous (and, again, one has to know their own health history, what they can and cannot consume and if need be check with his or her doctor to see if this is right for them) this might just be the thing that gets some people motivated. Some fans are so enamored of celebs that they buy, contribute, support just about anything. And, like others, I resent that. I would never pay to see these soap guys at their events (and the prices they charge are outrageous!!! and some people go over and over and pay huge amounts of money!!! I would also never kick in money to help them kick start one of their projects…LOL…let them kick in some for one of MY projects!!!) To that extent…many people in the entertainment business take advantage of their “star power” and sell their wares.

    As for this product, I actually think Steve came off sensibly and realistically. He didn’t promise drastic results or quick results. Along with his products he’s marketing a “support group” of which he’ll partake. If that’s what it takes to motivate some people…if going on this journey with Steve Burton through web messages etc is what it takes, it might just work for some. Of course, it’ll put money in his pocket, let’s not be naive…but it might inspire those who will feel supported by him if he comes across in the personal way he just promoted his company. Time will tell. If you decide to buy his products, do so with your eyes open, your expectations realistic and a realization that you’re paying more to get on this ride with Steve.
