Continuing today with another fad diet slogan. These are tips to help you in analyzing a diet or product.
7. “Lose weight with this miracle diet patch, cream or gel!”
I see these ads in my junk mail box all the time. I suppose there is something behind each one to make them think it will work. They have endorsements and testimonials to how good it is. For the most part. I guess, they won’t hurt you, but they don’t help you either.
You’ve heard it all before—”Apply and watch the fat melt away!” But truthfully, all that melts away is your hard-earned money.
Here’s a typical statement about a product. “Smooth your way to a firmer and slimmer silhouette with XXX, a gel scientifically proven to help break down stubborn fat build up by promoting drainage and reducing fluid retention in the body. Use morning and night to enhance your weight loss. This formula has scientifically proven results in just 2 weeks.”
You can find hundreds of these products if you search the internet.
If you have stacks of money sitting around, you can try them. Just see if you can get your money back on their money back guarantee.
It’s possible that someday, someone will come up with something that actually works. With today’s social media, I’m sure we will find out about it.
