Here’s the stupidest weight loss product I’ve seen this year. It looks like infomercial junk from the fat phobic 80’s. Instead it was recently shown on the popular American health show Dr Oz – which says a lot about the quality of the advice there.
The Fat Magnet works by you first freezing your food into a block of ice (I’m not joking) after which it can remove some of the fat from the top of the ice/food. Of course some of the flavor and fat soluble vitamins disappears as well. And the food will be less satisfying, so you’ll probably eat more. Perhaps you’ll end up gaining weight.
Beside all the other reasons why this is stupid it’s also bad for the environment to throw away good food.
