    It's grey and cold and gloomy, and we all need a good laugh right now, so I thought I would share with you the very useful information I just received in an email:

    VitaSvelt Online

    To quote:

    Is it true that you can slim down with 1 capsule a day, whilst eating normally?

    That is the whole secret of VitaSvelt
    . Once digested, the Negative Calories neutralise the calories that you absorb with your food. In this way your body has to dip into its energy reserves (fat) to digest the food. The result is logical: you eat, therefore you lose weight.

    Wow - all that effort we have been putting in, and we needn't have bothered!

    Go on - give yourselves a giggle.

    I bet as well as making you thin, if you threw them into the garden you'd have a beanstalk to golden eggs too! ;)

    LOL

    I reminds me of any diet programme ever where some skinny person says something like:

    "losing weight is simple, you just need to burn off more calories than you eat"

    I always want to slap my head and say "Doh! Why didn't someone tell me this years ago?"- AAARRRGGGHHH just because a rule is 'simple' does not make it 'easy'!

    Well what a load of old 'cod's wallop'.....

    Trouble is vunerable people believe this rubbish and keep buying the capsules, which is disgusting and should'nt be allowed, as these people who make the capsules are laughing all the way to the bank.
