Site suspended, could not find any violations

I have run ads before but now I got a suspended error but cannot find any violation.  The website is mibootcamps.com.  

 

here is the email excerpt;

 

Site Policy: We've determined that your site doesn't comply with our site policies. Because of this, any ads promoting this site have been disapproved.

 

For more information about suspended sites, please see:

I have no idea what policy they claim is violated and trying to get and answer via their links is impossible.  How do you determine the problem with such a vague canned email.

Hello

Your site violates the "Misleading or unrealistic promotions" clause of the Policy. (Under  the "Misrepresentation of self, product, or service section.)

For example (as an example only:  there are many more unreal claims on your site)

 

3-5% reduction in body fat
» 5-12 pounds of weight loss
» 1-3" decrease in the midsection
» 25% increase in strength
» 25% improvement in endurance
» Better relaxation
» Greatly improved posture
» 100% gain in self-confidence

 

If a woman weighs 150 lbs is to lose 5% of fat (assuming 35% of fat) that means that she had to "burn" within a month  0.05*150 lb *3600 (calories per pound of fat)= 27,000 calories per months or  approx between 6000-7000 calories per week - this is unreal!

 

All this site has to be re-written  to reflect a common scientific approach  to weight loss (i.e. Exercise +diet). The current content cannot be promoted.

The business model is the major violation. There are  a few more (e.g. Non SSL registration...)
