“Weight-Loss Scams are Everywhere”
Multibillion-dollar weight-loss industry profits are getting fatter each year. But, according to their advertised claims, America’s baby boomers should be as thin as Taylor Swift. Please do not fall for false advertising as regards pills, supplements, herbal drinks, patches, and creams. Please remember that the Food and Drug Administration does not necessarily review these products for safety and effectiveness. The simple truth is that there is only one legitimate plan for weight loss: Decrease your calorie intake and increase your activity level. Although I do not recommend it, I can sum it up in only one word: Starve! Bookstores have shelf after shelf of weight-loss books but the books are not going to lose weight for you unless you implement the above plan of calorie reduction along with increased activity.
