Good Day World!
America is fat, and wants to lose weight. Sort of.
The only problem is we really don’t want to stray out of our comfort zones to peel those pounds away.
No one wants to go without eating, or to sacrifice their favorite foods for long periods of time…perhaps even forever!
Bummer! And exercise every day? Please!
There must be a simpler way to loose weight without breaking a sweat. This is the 21st Century for goodness sake!
There must be some amazing alternatives to dieting and exercising out there. You know, like taking a pill or something.
I had high hopes for a line of bras, girdles and leggings infused with caffeine that were sold as weight loss aids up until recently. Unfortunately, they didn’t work out.
The Federal Trade Commission said Wacoal America and Norm Thompson Outfitters, which owns Sahalie and others, were using deceptive advertising that claimed their caffeine-impregnated clothing would cause the wearer to lose weight and have less cellulite.
Oregon-based Norm Thompson sold clothing made with Lytess brand fabric infused with caffeine which, the company said, would break down fat. Wacoal America, based in New Jersey, also advertised that its clothing had microcapsules with caffeine, vitamin E and other chemicals that it said led to weight loss.
U.S. regulators laid down the law on those bogus items Monday and made the companies refund about $1.5 million. I wonder how many people that equated to?
Oh well, hope springs eternal.
