Exercise in a bottle becomes a reality

For those people that loathe going to the gym and would rather eat to loose weight, your ship has finally come in. The Swiss food giant Nestle is developing a drink that will actually cause you to burn fat. The recent discovery of an enzyme code-named C13 causes the body to burn fat with low demand for energy. Consumers already spend billions on diet products that do not work. If this product becomes a reality I can just imagine the shipload of money this miracle discovery will bring in. You can put me down for a pre-order of 100 cases right now.

I could do with some of this....before my excuses for being a slob run

It may (or may not) burn the fat off but it won't develop muscles or exercise your heart. Yes, I know I need to burn some fat off and eating the right foods CAN do that but it does require some knowledge and willpower and the aisles of the shops are so LOADED with carbohydrates that it is difficult but it is still possible,

The name should be "More laziness in a bottle" actually. People need to realize that there are never easy ways to fix health and weight issues and Nestle would be making billions off people looking for an easy solution.

Might be an enjoyable way to learn it is just another futile wish.

Great! Now all I need is someone to take the top off the bottle for me! LOL

I would use it if it didn't interact with my meds. It is really hard for me to lose weight, even exercising and watching what I eat, because I have to take 150mg of one heart med that slows metabolism.

I'm sure it will sell well. Then they will probably find out there's something in it that is unhealthy.

I have that problem when handed a bottle of water. One more reason to drink it from the reverse osmosis tap.

Do you drink a lot of RO water? I have heard that long-term use isn't good for you since it has absolutely no mineral content. Aquarists use RO water in certain aquaria housing particular species of fish but we always need to add minerals to it. RO water is also so low in oxygen that fish can't live in it. Aquarists use it as a 'base' from which they can produce (by adding minerals) water of a pH, hardness and mineral content which suits their purpose and matches the conditions required by delicate species of fish (particularly marine fish). Not sure I'd want to drink it long-term with adding something to it.

We'd get plenty of minerals if we drank unprocessed water from our well, but it would small and taste terrible because of the sulfur content. We do get plenty of minerals in our diet and in supplements.

Is it on the stock exchange yet? I hope to see it local stores soon. I will have to try it.

I might actually buy some of this - if only to get a bit of a head start on that exercising I really ought to be doing! I'm not so keen on Nestle's business ethics. But if they're going to shift their focus back to privileged first world folks instead of selling dehydrated formula and water to people in developing countries, maybe I won't mind buying their products again...

I wouldn't want in on that product. But seriously I believe that there are no shortcuts to losing weight and stay he'll be at the same time.

Scorpie wrote on November 25, 2014, 9:04 PM

They are probably making the product out of people from third world countries.

Oh gosh, now how do I get off the couch and to the store to buy it when it comes out?

After that, you will see a lot of lawsuits from those who cannot lose weight after drinking tons of it.

micksy1983 wrote on December 4, 2014, 6:14 AM

They do come out with some wonderful things these days, but how safe are they really?

Bethany1202 wrote on December 21, 2014, 9:43 AM

I think the best and most healthy way to lose or maintain weight is through a healthy diet and moderate exercise/activity.

Scorpie wrote on December 21, 2014, 6:23 PM

I try to emphasize the moderation.

I'm trying to lose 10 pounds. I hope this Nestle thing is chocolate flavored!

We have to be resourceful and creative in some ways
