LOSE 20 POUNDS IN 10 SECONDS!

When I visited my parents over the break I saw about a bunch of ads on TV for a product called “Lipozene”.

“This product is only those who need SERIOUS weightloss” the thin blonde woman on the television pandered at me. She continued to say, “You don’t have to change a thing, just take 2 pills before 3 meals a day and watch the pounds melt off.”

ORLY? So I take 6 pills a day and I can eat crap? Sounds like a deal to me. I mean, it’s only 30 bucks for a 10 day supply1–a total bargain!

One of the main things that caught my attention about the ad is that Lipozene attempts to sell itself like a PRESCRIPTION, when other diet pills hold color-based aesthetic:

vs

In the ad, their words are chosen very carefully2 as not to get into legal trouble. Nice one, lipozene.

Lipozene is not FDA approved to support serious weight loss…or any weight loss at all, for that matter.

If you look at the ingredients in Lipozene, it’s just a pimped out fiber pill.3 The main ingredient is glucomannan, a soluble fiber that comes from konjac root. 30 bucks for 10 day supply of….konjac root? You’ve gotta be kidding me.

The blatant scam comes as no surprise. The makers of Lipozene and the operators of the so-called “Obesity Institute” that produced Lipozene4 are Henny Den Uijl and Bryan Corlett. This same duo was fined $1.5 MILLION by the FTC in 2005 for lying about the weight loss abilities of some other fiber pills that they were pushing back then (called Propolene and FiberThin). Henny and Bryan are clearly winners. Especially since nowhere on their site do they cite the studies which support their “clinically proven weight loss”.5

But hey, maybe Henny and Bryan ARE the winners. After all, over 10 million bottles of this shit has been sold. People are such dumbasses.

  1. It is absolutely amazing how gullible people are. They see the carefully chosen words of “Reduce Weight” and “Clinically Proven” and they automatically assume its verbatim. People seriously need to do some serious research on things like these to make sure they aren’t investing in an overly expensive fiber pill like this. They see the pretty, done-up ads on TV and the assume that “It must work, someone put it on TV therefore it must be true!”. Oh, silly people of the world…how naive you must be.

    Yes, the easiest way to lose weight is to maintain healthy eating both with eating decent portions and not so much fatty foods as well as exercise. It boggles my mind when people only think eating healthy or just exercising will provide results, much like the “easy way out” with a diet supplement.

    Its call GOOD HEALTH for a reason, people! Eat right, stay active and you will see results! Don’t be lazy asses and eat like shit and expect a little pill to do all the work for you.

    /rant. xD

  2. Good point, because it’s glaringly obvious now how profit-based this medical system has become. No one is actually looking to solve problems which can be easily maintained considering all the profitable revenues. They have pills for anything now which only treat the symptoms.

    Hm, but as for obesity, I think the general public is not aware of what a complex issue it actually is in some cases. It may not simply be just a matter of eating right and working out, because according to some studies, obesity can actually have some very deeply rooted psychological problems as its source. If you have time, I recommend checking out these videos on adverse childhood experiences: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbiq2-ukfhM The conclusions it makes are absolutely profound.

  3. Thank you for spending time to talk about this “wonder-pill”. I too have seen it advertised abundantly and my jaw tries not to drop. It makes me sad that people are really that desperate to believe a pill can fix anything. Every insecurity fixed in one little pill, just don’t forget to pay the shipping and handling.

  4. There’s a lot of terrible products out there, especially when it comes to health and fitness. A lot of it seems to stem from people not being able to state clearly what they want, the whole weight lose vs fat lose/ lose weight to look better naked issue, and sadly the gullible of the world are a great place to make profit.

    For the majority of cases, achieving a healthier body and “looking better naked” can be achieved by listening to your body, working within your limits to expand them, and working out in whichever way you choose while learning to let your body adapt to greater intensity, volume, and density of work. Adaption has no off switch, if you move poorly and eat crap food, there aren’t going to be many positive effects, no matter what pills you take.

Yet glucomannan can actually helpful addition to your weight loss regime, in that it helps regulate blood sugar and reduce appetite. However, you can get NOW brand glucomannan, at your local health food store, for $7 a month.

  10. People should think of it this way… It took years to become fat, it will take years to become skinny. If you go for a quick solution, you won’t be able to maintain your weight loss once you go back to your old lifestyle.

  11. RE: Yes please Amy show us what true love is one more time. Divorce after divorce after divorce after whoring after whoring after whoring after gold digging and gold digging and gold digging. Aren’t you exhausted yet? Everybody knows you by now. Everybody knows you prostitute with the police to get your previous sex clients in trouble and clear your own name. You are nothing but trouble and bound for legal problems. I hope you get a good look around when you go to jail. You have something ugly inside of you that needs to die. Its called your soul. Funny how that guy who took you to court named Jim had to adjust his “court room” name because of all of the negative publicity you bring people. Dont get caught.
