I remember, years ago, there was a belt that sent an electrical current to your abs, causing the muscles to constrict, release, and thusly, become toned...supposedly. I also remember, shortly after these commercials started, seeing something on some video show (America's Funniest? Though this wasn't funny at all), where one of the belts shorted out and shocked the user.
I also LOVE the new Slim Fast tagline: "Who has time to slim slowly?" That ought to be a HUGE clue that its unsustainable.
When I tell people I'm losing weight, and how I'm doing it, they seem a little disappointed when I tell them its nothing but old fashioned diet and exercise.
