As seen on TV

Have you ever noticed how many weight loss pills and drinks and such are out there? I see commercials all the time for stuff like Hydroxycut and Alli and Nutrisystem. Now I have no idea how well any of these work besides what the commercials say, but I like to read the fine print at the bottom of the screen to see what they aren't telling you. A lot say something like "Avg weight loss 12-14lbs" or "Results not typical" or "Best results when combined with healthy diet and exercise". That last one gets me laughing. If you have a healthy diet and exercise you should lose weight without the pills anyway. And the average weight is funny cuz I think many people who use these want to lose more than the "12-14lbs avg loss" they quote at the bottom. But I guess that these things can work for some people and so more power to them. :)
