Just kidding. Now that I have your attention, I thought it would be best to bring up and discuss a few things.
Dr. Oz is full of shit. The guy has been discredited multiple times, and had to go to court for his claims on weight loss products. He even admitted his claims were not backed by any science. I understand the idea of having sponsors, and discussing the products on TV to sell said product. It’s how product placements work, and it’s how popular shows keep cash flow coming in for the stars and the network, without having to fork out fuckloads of cash.
Yeah, that’s how product placement works. And honestly, it’s just that fucking stupid to me when people tell me about these “amazing and awesome products that actually work” with no science behind any of it.
**Side note** Most of the “miracle” pills you see advertised on TV that tell you they work, ever notice it’s on an American based channel? That’s because there are only two countries that allow it (That’s right. ‘Murica, fuck yea!) That’s how bad it actually is to do. And anyone that says there are not a lot of side effects is full of shit. With those pills, there is always a danger. Trust me here. I bought into a lof of that shit a while back, and fucked myself up for a while. How so? My heart fucking stopped. This is why we can not stress this enough: SEE YOUR FUCKING DOCTOR. I was fortunate that I was around friends that helped me (it’s kind of a funny yet freaky story for another time) and that’s why I am here today. We have experienced the problems and are lucky to be here to tell you this stuff.
But hear me now when I say this with the utmost clarity and truth: There is no miracle pill that will make you lose the weight. So stop buying useless products. You’re wasting your money. Don’t get me wrong, there are certain stacks (don’t do them unless you know a large portion about said products, as well as the effects on people. And especially without consulting your doctor) and even then, they don’t “make you skinny”. They assist in regulating certain things, and feature products with different intended purposes that work together to enhance energy, endurance and recovery. But for everything we are telling you, YOU WON’T NEED THEM. They are more something worth researching because it’s an interesting aspect of the field, and not really something you need anyways (like I said, not for the purposes we are doing, not yet anyways). As well, unless you’re planning on getting into fitness competitions, you don’t need them.
Those “magic”pills are primarily made up of the same “special proprietary blend of ingredients”. It’s mostly all the same base items in varying amounts, that really don’t do anything special. It’s much easier (and cheaper) taking them on their own instead of in pill form. “What are they?” you are frantically asking? For the most part, its regular items you see everyday, and sometimes use a fancier sciencey term for it. Others are new age “miracles”. Some include:
There are so many more items that I could list, but would be here all fucking day. The bottom line is, there is NO MIRACLE PILL that will cause you to lose weight (speed might, but that gets pricey, is supplied by some terrible people for the most part, and is, well, highly illegal). The best way to do it is to get off your ass and work for this kids. How badly do you want to see your son or daughter graduate? Or get married? Or grandchildren?
We all have our reasons for doing this. I just want to give you the truth from someone that has and is suffering through it, so you don’t make the mistakes I did.
