Every now and then you’ll come across a “magical” or “amazing” product that will help you lose weight, fight disease, or get you in shape faster.
It seems like every couple of years (or more often) a product is introduced to the market that targets those people who want the easy way to fat loss or health.
The strange thing is, people actually buy this stuff!
It’s too bad they don’t realize you can lose weight, be healthier, and feel better just by making a few changes to your diet.
Here are the top 10 health scams:
#1: Toning Shoes
Ah yes, those illustrious shoes designed specifically to help tone and tighten your legs and glutes. The shoes have a convex sole and pods and/or mini balance balls at the bottom.
This all works to make you work harder to balance and walk. Some manufacturers even claim they can help with back pain and poor posture.
Let’s think about this for a minute. How can a shoe that forces you to walk unnaturally be good for your posture and spine? It’s not likely.
In addition, there’s zero evidence that toning shoes actually do a thing to “tone” your muscles. You do that in a gym, by lifting weights…and we wouldn’t recommend you wear these shoes while doing so.
