  • African Mango makes you lose a shit ton of weight??

    Anyone heard of this? Apparently it was on Dr. Oz so I don't believe it much (lol) but I'm just wondering if anyone's read into it:

    That & Raspberry Ketones. Latest fads apparently. I read an article recently, however, that you would have to take, like, a bottle of raspberry ketones every day to get any sort of noticeable results from it.

      Yeah I've heard of that as well. My mom works at the Vitamin Shoppe so whenever there's some new trend on Dr. Oz she has to deal with a million people coming in trying to get it.

        Just ASSume that everything Dr. Oz says is false. It keeps me from falling into his traps.

          I've been using Swisse trimshot shakes as snacks sometimes, when I run out of time to take lunch to work, it contains African mango. The packet says it helps reduce appetite and is high in soluble fibre to delay the emptying of the stomach. It also contains other ingredients but I must say I do seem to loose more weight when I drink it, as opposed to simply fasting. I would be interested in more information about it as well

            this would explain the Raspberry Ketones something or another for sale at my gym. Something written on the sale chalkboard or something I remember seeing a few times but not paying much attention to.

            Good starting point.

              It's marketing. It's bullshit. This is from plain old wikipedia:

              Raspberry ketone is a natural phenolic compound that is the primary aroma compound of red raspberries. It is used in perfumery, in cosmetics, and as a food additive to impart a fruity odor. It is one of the most expensive natural flavor components used in the food industry. The natural compound can cost as much as $20,000 per kg.
              They're selling you the most expensive, incredibly processed crap from raspberries. Just...raspberries. It's a f*cking flavor additive and they're getting people to buy it just for that. "Buy this shit we put in a bottle. It, uh, makes you not fat or whatever."

              When given to mice in very high doses (up to 2% of food intake), raspberry ketone has been shown to prevent high-fat-diet-induced elevations in body weight. However, no effects on body weight were observed with doses up to 200 times greater than the estimated intake in humans.
              So 1 it doesn't even work and 2 the Primal diet is all about high fat diets that don't add body fat.

              Nobody should ever waste their time listening to "Dr Oz"

                Yeah, a fine diet of acai berries, supplemented with joji berries, spread over with raspberry ketones served over slices of mango. You can also chuck back a bunch of blueberries for old days sake. The Very Berry Diet.

                  Wow...just, wow. I always knew Dr. Oz was full of shit...didn't he do a thing about the Paleo diet once, but it included tofu and whole grains or something ridiculous? I don't watch him, I just hear about his crazy shit when browsing online or from my poor mom lol

                  And $20,000 a kg? Really?

                    I tried the African Mango pills some while ago at some enormous expense but I didnt lose any weight at all on em.
                    Dont know much about the raspberry ketones - perhaps they havent reached the UK yet!

                      Dr. Oz is the worst. The guy takes CW or some new fringe magic bullet packages it up and puts it in nice 7 min segments.

                      I love it when he wears scrubs on the show. I can just imagine him walking off the set and straight into surgery.

                      He is an absolute medical sideshow clown.

                        If Dr. Oz's ideas actually worked, then why is Oprah still huge?

                          Please don't let yourself fall for this bullshit. Waste of time, money, and energy.

                            That's the thing - the guy needs to have material for a show every day (or however the funk often his program runs) - there's no way they'd have an adequate amount of material of actually healthy advice. He relies on whatever fad thing is being promoted. He gets paid. They get paid. You get sick and poor.

                            I'd be wary of oxygen if Dr Oz endorsed breathing.

                              I used to be a fan of Dr. Oz but lately his shows are just sensationalistic. As are the mango/raspberry ketone trend. There are no shortcuts.
