There is a sucker born every minute. Buy my crystals! Have these pills! So many promises… Such lacking results.
Our TV is full of these:
“Buy this abdominal cruncher to get rid of the belly!” – If you haven’t guessed, you cannot spot-reduce fat.
“Take these amazing pills with TWO FULL GLASSES OF WATER!” – Yeah, the weight loss, if any, will come from filling your belly with water and being unable to eat as much.
“This weight loss bracelet will make you lighter!” – from your wallet…
Often the word “natural” will be attached to make it sound more plausible and true. Drowning is “natural” and so is Cyanide and both will quickly kill us. The amount of nonsense you can hear at the gym or in the media goes on and on.
Beware of fitness buzzwords like:
Quoting straight from “Eat Bad”:
“Let me put it plain and simple… Nothing here is what it seems. If you eat too many chickens, you don’t grow feathers. If you eat foods with high cholesterol, you don’t collapse from a blocked esophagus. If you eat sugar, you don’t become a lollipop. Then, why would you think If you eat fat you become obese?”
Just food for thought!
