I get asked to review a lot of Health & Fitness products and services, AND a lot of “Diet” related products. I say “Thanks but no thanks” a lot!!! I shift between frustration and boredom when I receive emails from PR companies that start with “We think this would be a great fit for www.toofattorun.co.uk”…
