Fittingly Mad: BodyLift Weight Reducing Cream

There really is no magic pill or no miracle cream for weight loss. Yet, products in this fairy tale genre continue to be produced and marketed, and women (maybe men too?) who are desperate to meet the crazy cellulite-fat-free-ideal buy them.

For instance, BodyLift Weight Reducing Cream made by University Medical (love how that name of the manufacturer sounds so official as if the product has been tested and researched at a university, then tested at medical facilities). This cream supposedly "Controls your appetite and increases your metabolism, while firming and flattening your flesh." All that for only $10.99 - quite a deal.

Hopefully, that sounds as preposterous to you as it does to me. If you are tempted, I am here to say products like this DO NOT work. To lose weight you need to burn more calories than you are consuming. To firm up you need to exercise using a nice mix of cardio and strength training. Needless to say there are two consumer reviews of this cream (meaning at least two anonymous shoppers bought this cream) telling the truth - that this weight reducing cream did nothing for them. Interestingly enough, these two negative reviews are followed by a review that sounds bogus, as if it was written by the honest (can you hear the sarcasm?) folks at University Medical themselves!

Don't be fooled ladies! There is no magic pill. There is no magic cream! If you have tried a product like this, you're not alone. Even Bella tried some cellulite cream, that didn't work.
