The “new” Fat Fighter?!!

Scanning through a freebie “fitness magazine” (they have the same name as my bootcamp so sent it free with a view to me advertising in it!) there was a page long advert for yet another miracle “fat loss” pill.

On further reading it sounds similar to that massively successful “Alli” pill which came on the market, and has dissapeared equally as fast!

However, there was an exert from it, and a heading which I just had to comment on!

Here it is;

“Have you ever wondered why sea animals never get fat? Now this new revolutionary slimming substance has finally been discovered and developed into a remarkable diet pill.”

Prof. Sandrine Gautier PhD. (expert in polymer science) dedicated several years’ research to come up with a high powered and patented diet pill with no side effects. Now she has discovered the special ingredient millions of women and men have always dreamed of: Xipisan. The idea is as brilliant as it is simple. Have you ever seen an overweight fish? Or an oyster with a few pounds too many? Everyone knows that sea animals never get fat. That’s because their bodies contain Xipisan- extract from Aspergillus Niger which is now available as a diet-pill at your pharmacy for everybody who wants to lose unwanted fat.

– Errrr NO! I’ll tell you why sea animals never get “fat” – because (1) rarely do they stop moving, a still fish tends to be a dead fish! (2) Because they don’t eat crap! They don’t have take-a-ways, they don’t have alcohol, they don’t have biscuits and crisps – they eat what they are supposed to! That’s why they aren’t fat you foolish woman!!

And at the bottom;

Victoria Keane (45) housewife: “7 weeks ago I weighed 12st 8lb (size 18) now I am down to just 9st 4lb (size 12)! During this time I didn’t change my eating habits at all: the pounds must have disappeared due to the new slimming capsule.”

– Rubbish – this pill will not have had that much effect in such a little time without any changes to your diet. She was probably given nutritional advice along with the pill, and I guarantee the nutrition advice would have been what caused the weight loss, as drastic as that was!

Everyone is always looking for a pill or a quick fix as the answer.
How bought making some changes that will enhance you’re health at the same time?
– Remove alcohol in the week?
– Only have a takeaway once a month?
– Remove sugar from your diet for 2 weeks?
– Stop eating high amounts of Saturated fat in the first place?!

You didn’t get fat because you were missing the “magic pill” you got fat because you didn’t move enough and ate too much of the wrong foods!
Make some changes and stick to them!
Clean up you’re diet, and you’ll clean up your life!
