Weightloss Gimmicks and such Nonsense

I have been an avid bodybuilder and powerlifter ever since I was 15. I am now 40, and I could stand to lose 10 pounds or so, but by and large I have been able to maintain a lean, healthy body all these years.

So, when I was browsing around yesterday and stumbled across


I began to have some thoughts.

I admit to using supplements from time to time, but I have never believed in a "magic pill". I have always felt that excercise and good diet were the best ways to ensure long term health and fitness.

Now before you guys get your tata's in a wringer, I took the time to at least look at the above site before forming any conclusions. Then, I decided to write the company that makes it, Life Plus I think it was.

but THEN I thought, wait a minute, what if I am all wet? What if I am really out of touch here? Maybe something like this Slenderlean has some appeal.

So, before I wrote Life Plus and gave them my two cents worth, I thought I would get some feedback from a random sample of intelligent folks.

Is there anyone here that would actually invest 55.00 in a product that purports to raise the basic metabolic rate WITHOUT Ephedra! Causes the body to burn fat stores, while preserving precious lean tissue mass stores; reduces cravings and raises energy levels?? or, do most of you feel that such products are a waste of money (even with a money back guarantee).

Yes, i would say it is gimmic. There is no magic pill. In homeopathy the patient has to be anlyzed in depth to prescribe a medicine.
However there are some medicine that help in weight problem. The basic equation must be followed. The extra food that you eat beyond your daily requirement turns into fats. Food less than your daily requirement shall start making you lean.
Have you tried Phyt-b/Q, 15 dropd, twice or three time a day (in small water)

that's trash - forget it. there have been all kinds of tee arund, ficus vesiculous been offered, soups and pills, and so on. all come with a "absolute harmless" - "all natural" or whatever label.
a sane person shouldn't even invest a cent in something like this. you can ONLY look healthy , if you are. you will only be musculair if your body has the need to have muscles ( means a cou patatoe doesn't need muscles so the body doesn't grow them) you eill only be slim, if you don't overfeed your body.
there might be certain ways around these universal laws, but they will change things in you body chemistry that can't be healthy nor are they for ever... since changes always concern the whole person not just a foot or a metabolism or a head.... you can just imagine what you will do to yourself by changing the chemistry of just one feature.
by the way: to my knowledge, so far there wasn't ANY pill / drug / tea / whatever that really worked.
Health, weight and sex are the biggest money making branches in the world. there are tons of people outside, willing to believe in a solution for the problems they have, without investing time or changing things in their lifestyle. desperate people - that's why advertisements like this work. sad. very sad!!
