Buyers Beware of Gastric Bypass Pill

Pills_and_capsules Ever since I started this bog, I wanted to write about this, but never had a good support to do it. Finally it’s here. An ABC News report explains it all. Read the full article watch the video.

First of all, how can Zetacap (the top seller) claim themselves to be a “gastric bypass pill”? Do they really know what a GP is? The Zetacap pill does not shrink your stomach (thank God!), it supposedly swells into a gel blob in the stomach to make a person feel full.

When you do the math, the numbers may surprise you. The ad says that 200,000 users have lost 1 million pounds combined. That is 5 (five) pounds each on average So for over $100 a month, it seems like a big rip off to me no matter how you look it.

But most important, always keep in mind that there is no weight loss strategy in this world that does not require personal sacrifice. Even if you had WLS, there is a high percentage of effort you have to put in to make it work. So, before you plan on buying some magic pill, remember that the only one who will loose weight is your wallet!
