BBC News reports widespread scepticism about 'Weight Loss Lip Balm' that is claimed to help with weight loss. "The manufacturers say four key ingredients blended together make it work: Green tea (which has been linked to weight loss), caffeine (to boost energy), the mineral Chromium Piclinate - (which, it's claimed, helps the body burn fat), and the herb Hoodia (which apparently suppresses the appetite)."
Caffeine does not help with weight loss. 'Burning fat' is unnecessary to achieve weight loss and whether hoodia suppresses the appetite or not is irrelevant, since appetite suppression is both unnecessary and undesirable for weight loss.
There is a wealth of evidence to show that it is NOT true. - Millions upon millions of innocent overweight people have tried over decades to reduce their excess weight by eating fewer calories and taking more exercise. - Overwhelmingly they fail to lose weight this way. - They get tired; they feel cold and ill and hungry. But they do not lose weight (or if they do it is only temporary). - The 'experts' then tell them that they have done it wrong; they haven't tried hard enough or long enough; they are lying; they are mistaken, etc. - The 'experts' cannot get their heads around the fact that it is THEY who are wrong; THEY who are lying; THEY who are mistaken...
Obesity is caused by fluid retention in people who are sensitive to salt. - It is as simple, and as profoundly complex, as that.
