Author: Better Business Bureau

WEIGHT LOSS: Experts consistently agree that the only way to permanently lose weight is to reduce caloric intake and increase exercise. No ingested product and no external preparations such as creams or body wraps have been proven to cause permanent loss of fat without restriction of food intake or without exercise. Significant weight loss should not be undertaken without competent medical supervision, especially if the amount of weight loss desired is over 10% of body weight.
