So, I was driving to work this morning, and I heard a radio ad for Trimspa. "Blah, blah, blah, Anna Nicole's still dumb, but hot now, blah, blah"
At the very end, I catch the announcer dude speaking pretty quickly, but I definitely heard him throw in the C.Y.A.-line "Results not typical. Average total weight loss in an 8-week study combining diet, exercise, and Trimspa formula was 6.6 pounds."
This struck me as interesting, to say the least. 6.6 pounds in 8 weeks...when dieting, exercising, and using a supposedly effective fatburner? Manoman, those are not any results to write home about. Take an Average Overweight Joe or Jane, and get them to implement Berardi's 7 Basic rules, and you'll see better results, even before exercise.
On the Trimspa site, I found a little disclaimer at the bottom:
Average weight loss achieved in an 8-week clinical study combining diet, exercise, and X32 was 3 pounds per month.
WTF, man?!? I could lose 3 pounds in a month just by shaving everyday. Give me HOT-ROX, 5 meals a day, and 6 weeks of High Octane Cardio, over that anytime. I'd love, love, love to see the "diet and exericse" program they used. I just don't get how the public still falls for supplements like this. Is attaching a celebrity to your gimmick really all it takes??!! Grrrr.
