: : Today in my mail I received an information package about staarch blocker capsules which are called "Celebrity 10 in 48 Starch Blockers" by a company called LH&B Clinic. Its saying that you can lose 10 lbs in 48 hours. Yeah right - or its all water. The idea is to take these capsules to block the starch in your foods before your meals and also
: : take some of their lemon-lime juice too. Has anyone else ever heard of this product - let alone tried it? I have been scammed way too many times and will not order anything without hard evidence that it actually works - and in this case - I'm betting not. Any comments would be appreciated if someone knows more about this product. Thanks!
: Why did you purchase this if you are already skeptical? Honestly, your body CANNOT physiologially lose 10lbs in 48 hours. It is just not possible to lose that much fat in 48hrs. You probably will lose some water and muscle tissue, but FAT is what is you should want to lose. Look at it this way, even if the starch blocker blocked EVERY calorie of starch that you ingested, which I highly doubt since most only have the ability to block 50% max kcals, then what about the fat that you eat as well. Most foods that are high in starchy carbohydrates are high in fat as well. There is only one good carbohydrate and FAT blocker out on the market and that is Optiblock. All of my clients use it with great success. I'm not saying they eat whatever and whenever they want of junk food, but combined with small frequent balanced meals as well as my personal fitness training exercises, they have ALL had great weight loss results.
I didn't purchase it! I said I got an information package - and as you can tell from my last message - I too knew it wouldn't work - but was just looking for someone who knew something about that specific prduct. Thanks anyway.
