I know a lot of people… but I don’t know a single person who ever lost a lot of weight taking some Big Pharma pill.
And you know what? I bet you don’t know anyone either.
But that doesn’t stop the drug companies from FLOODING the market with diet products with big promises.
Case in point?
The FDA just approved a new “hydrogel capsule” called Plenity
Now, usually the FDA only approves weight-loss aids for obese people with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above. But they’re so tickled with Plenity that they even approved it for folks with just a little weight to lose (a BMI of 25 or higher).
And that’s great and all… except the basis of this “revolutionary” new drug is nothing more than a common nutrient!
You see, Plenity’s “secret ingredients” aren’t as impressive as Big Pharma would have you believe.
Plenity is a pill made out of a blend of cellulose and citric acid… which could just be a fancy way of saying fiber and lemon juice.
And God only knows what they’ll charge for it.
Don’t let the impressive marketing claims fool you.
Fiber expands in your stomach and makes you feel full… similar to what other fibrous foods or fiber supplements do for you.
Huh… I didn’t know fiber made you full! Wow! Another revolutionary Big Pharma discovery!
Seriously, we’ve known for ages that fiber makes you feel less hungry. You could take a simple (and cheap) fiber supplement and get similar results.
In fact, that’s exactly what you should do… and save yourself some serious money. There are plenty of fiber supplements out there, such as Metamucil, Benefiber, or fiber gummies (for the kids at heart).
The research has shown that taking normal fiber supplements help you feel fuller. And with proper diet and exercise, you’ll start to lose weight.
But you won’t have to pay out the wazzoo for the fiber supplements on the shelf of your local grocery store.
