Here’s the stupidest weight loss product I’ve seen this year. It looks like infomercial junk from the fat phobic 80′s. Instead it was recently shown on the popular American health show Dr Oz – which says a lot about the quality of the advice there.
The Fat Magnet works by you first freezing your food into a block of ice (I’m not joking) after which it can remove some of the fat from the top of the ice/food. Of course some of the flavor and fat soluble vitamins disappears as well. And the food will be less satisfying, so you’ll probably eat more. Perhaps you’ll end up gaining weight.
The Fat Magnet and other fat phobic junk on the dr Oz Show
Beside all the other reasons why this is stupid it’s also bad for the environment to throw away good food.
Earlier diet scams
Either Dr.Oz is a blithering idiot, which I doubt because he made it through medical school, or he really does not care about helping people overcome obesity related issues. Dr.Oz must only care about filling TV time up with silly nonsense. He told Oprah that her diet failed because she did not love herself enough, maybe the diet failed her, maybe Dr.Oz should focus on evolutionary biology to learn why it failed Oprah.
