Shock Your Way Slim

This morning while watching the news, I happened to catch a segment on weight loss. This new procedure involved using small electronic shocks - kind of like the procedure that is done when you hurt your back and they 'treat' your muscles to get them to relax. Well this is done on your fat rolls.

Besides the fact that its pretty expensive - $100 per session and it takes about 20 sessions and then once a month for maintenance, I also noticed that maybe it isnt that effective.

When the person selling the product or procedure could stand to lose about 150lbs, then it doesn't make one feel too secure about the product.

How do you think they sell so much Slimfast or Hydroxycut!? They hire very physically fit people to be their spokesperson. HELLO!

Sounds scary.

Short-term benefits, but who knows what the long-term consequences are??

I'm for diet and exercise. (starving and walking to the car to run to sonic for the diet coke)

Not really.... but diet and exercise is the way to go!

Holy crap. This is one of the oldest scams in the book. Kind of like the one where that vibrating belt you put around your belly will vibrate the fat off.

It all comes down to TWO fucking things.

Eat less - Excercise More.
