Question

Has anyone tried this product? Some radio DJ's in my area are doing the liquid and have both lost weight. I was wanting to get some other opinions before I spent my hard earned money on it.
Thanks for any help.

I have never tried this product. I have heard it advertised by radio dj's in my area too. They claim great success with it.

Default Grain of salt time!!!

We had another thread going on Body Solutions - I'll have to try to pull it up. Basically, there's nothing in the product that is really effective for weight loss.

If the DJs in your area claim to be losing weight using this product, you need to remember: 1) if they are watching their caloric intake/burn during the time that they are using the product, they're likely to lose weight anyway; and 2) they are being paid to advertise this product...it's not necessarily a 'thumbs-up' personal endorsement.

The manufacturers & sellers of these products - like most diet products out there -- are very experienced at picking our pockets. They know that most of us are desperate to lose weight (and keep it off!) and know how to push our buttons until they hit the one that opens our wallets ($48 - $60 per month with this one).

Body Solutions claims to cause you to 'burn fat while you sleep'. The primary ingredients are aloe vera (a laxative), CLA (a fatty acid found in milk, beef, and lamb) and collagen (a poor quality, incomplete protein). In fact the Body Solutions formula is almost identical to one marketed in the 90's called "Calorad" and guess what - that one didn't work either... http://nbaf.com/nbaf/sept7pgc.html

The rest of the products hawked on the website are also nothing new - your basic ma huang/chromium picolinate/ vitamins mix; only being sold at a huge markup!

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is...

Check this article on Quackwatch for more info: http://www.quackwatch.com/01Quackery...uppsherbs.html

The best defense to this kind of advertising...is educating yourself as to what WORKS and what does NOT...
