Ok, I will admit it. I buy body building magazines. I collect workouts like some people collect coins. The most interesting thing about these magazines is that 60% of the pages are dedicated to advertisements. Products such as protein powders and weight loss pills, are "scientifically proven" to get fabulous results. Elite body builders on these adds claim that product XYZ is the secret to success. I have fallen for some of this hype. I bought bottles of Cortistat blocker, Myostin binder and Thermogenesis Appetite suppressors. I took about 1/2 these pills before I realized the only weight loss that these pills produced was to lighten my wallet!
I wish there was a pill that eliminated the need to eat less and exercise more. Diet and exercise are the only "scientifically proven" methods to lose weight. There has to be a catch there someplace!
