Myth – Electrical Muscle stimulators will help you lose weight


Wrong, I always get  one or two cases everyday, where the person uses a gadget (Like the ones shown on TV) to lose weight, There are couple of these products like sauna belts, morning walkers etc that say “Hey!! Lose weight while you watch TV”. These gadgets claim to help you lose weight and tighten your abs, thighs and buttocks without even exercising. They trigger tiny muscle contractions, and claim you can get fit while sitting in front of the television. You might want to believe it, but you probably know deep down inside that its useless. If you don’t work, it doesn’t work. there is no evidence to support strength gains or weight loss. Save your money, but have a good laugh at the ads. Remember, You rest.. You rust.

So have you used any of these gadgets? Have you seen any difference in your weight since you have used them? Please share it with us.

    There are lot of quacks who are selling such products. They are all fakes. There is no short cut to weight loss. Any easy route also involves loss of health too. Please do not waste money over such gadgets.
