Let's Make That 4 Cents (Another Short Rant)

Has anyone heard of this new weight loss stuff called Akavar? It's one of those weight loss supplements that claims that "you can eat all you want and still lose weight". Right ... sure ... if there really was such a thing and it worked I would be the first one selling off my off-spring in order to afford a constant supply!

Even though it would be nice if there was a "miracle pill" out there that could help people lose weight and keep it off without giving up all the really good stuff like bread, potatoes, cookies, cakes. double cheeseburgers with all the fixin's, fried chicken, macaroni & cheese, etc., etc. there really just is no such thing. Funny how we can put a man on the moon (and what good did that do now that I think about it?) but we can't come up with a weight loss supplement that really and truly works.

It's too bad that there are so many companies out there with so many products making all these false claims and taking everyone's money. It's a shame that the snake oil salesmen are still around but now hide behind computer monitors instead of standing in front of their wagons.

Just sayin' is all!

  1. Is that the stuff that just makes everything you eat go straight through you? If it is I've heard some amazing reports about it.

  3. I need a miracle pill to help me gain weight. I know that sounds like a problem everyone wishes for, but, honestly, when you are underweight like I am, and you make a major move and lose a ton of weight, it is just as hard to gain it back as it is for those trying to lose it... It has been a life-long struggle for me.

  5. the reason they say u can eat all u want n still lose weight is because the pill works as a caloric restrictor and makes it so your desire to eat is less. if u eat less than usual, you are more likely to lose the weight
