If They Say ... “The Super Fat-Fighting Formula inhibits fats, sugars and starches from being absorbed in intestines and turning into excess weight, so that you can lose pounds and inches easily.” “These diet pills block fat before your body absorbs it; pounds will melt away effortlessly.”
Sorry, But The Truth Is ... Red Flag Claim 3 --
Block absorption of fat or calories, and lose substantial weight.
The Truth -- No fat blocker or diet pills can block enough fat or calories to cause lots of weight loss. Even very few legitimate fat blockers must be used with a reduced-calorie diet to work.
If They Say ... "Got a little extra baggage in your belly... thighs... buttocks? Here's only sure way to trim fat in those "trouble spots."
"We once thought a diet couldn't target fat in specific areas of body. But "xxx diet" changes that and proves that you can."
Sorry, But The Thruth Is .. Red Flag Claim 4 --
You Can't Spot Reduce -- Period!
The Truth -- You absolutely can't tell your body where it will lose weight and shed pounds (spot reducing). The notion of a food or diet tricky enough to burn fat in specific areas is flat out ridiculous. You can "build up" specific areas in your body thru weight training, but losing weight in specific areas that you may want to improve is simply NOT possible.
If They Say ... "But I have lost 6 pounds very first week on this new low card diet..."
"I lost 11 pounds first 2 weeks on this diet."
"Lose 13 pounds in 2 weeks with this brand new diet -- Guaranteed!"
Sorry, But The Truth Is ... Red-Flag Claim 5 -- Water Weight, Water Weight, and More Water Weight --
The Truth -- Glycogen, your primary source for energy, attracts water. Your muscles are mostly made up of water. When you limit your carbohydrate intake, you hold onto less glycogen. Therefore, initial weight loss you experience is due to water loss from your muscles. This can account for 4-10 pounds in first week. Rapid water loss is trick behind these diets. They make it appear quick and easy, while in reality it is a temporary solution.
