Unfortunately, I think people think that because something is on a store's shelves, or can be easily purchased (lol, not in a shadowy parking lot at night), it's automatically healthy and ok.

I do have to say , though...the HCG one is probably the most messed up thing I've ever heard of! I mean, besides the fact that it's a synthetic hormone type thingy, the "diet" is 500 cals a day, which is about what concentration camp inmates were given emoticon

Think of all the billions of dollars wasted on such products---money that could have been spent on new walking shoes, more fruits and veggies, a gym membership, etc....Things that really do "supplement" one's journey to a healthier weight.

I strongly believe in the placebo effect. If I ever get stalled with my diet, I just go to the magical tick tack weight loss program. I just take a tick tack one half hour before any meal with a glass of water. If I am hungry I just take a tick tack with water and wait the 30 minutes. What this does for me is make me cognizant of what I am eating and most of the time I forget about the extra snack or the ice cream and never get around to it. I always get back on track with this stupid trick. I hope the makers of tick tacks do not read this and try to make a diet plan for their product. LOL!!!

Weight is the result of what you have been doing for the past week.

Names like "SlimEasy Herb Capsules" should be our first warning sign, LOL.....

Look what the FDA has discovered regarding many weight loss supplements:
