“Lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks.” … “Eat all you want and still burn away fat.” … What do these statements have in common? Well, they may be more attractive after weeks of holiday eating—but that’s not all. These fat-busting claims stretch the truth leaving many to eat a diet of lies.
In fact, a government panel says, “Whether it’s a pill, patch, or cream, there’s no shortage of ads promising quick and easy weight loss without diet or exercise. But the claims just aren’t true, and some of these products could even hurt your health.
Americans continue to spend millions for a quick fix for fat loss, but there simply isn’t a quick one that’s healthy. A proper diet, a good night’s sleep, and regular exercise together provide a steady and safe, no-frills way to a healthier you.
Don’t fill up on empty promises.
