There isn’t one Pakistani with a cable connection who hasn’t come across those late-night infomercials of blenders, juicers, vacuums and of course weight loss equipment that go on for hours and also the recommendations that YouTube gives you when you are least expecting them, but nonetheless you come across fitness ideas, equipment, medicines that just make you stare at those advertisements in horror and the way the content is presented! Most of us have spent our childhood watching these ads and being amazed by how they work but here at Nutright we want you to know the truth and nothing but the truth so we bring you some fitness ideas that are laughable fads.
The legendary Sauna Belt, I think we’ve seen it as much as we’ve seen Kids Next Door. It’s amazing how heat melts things right? If only heat would melt fat away, then I think I should stand in the sun all day and literally BURN my calories and fat deposit away. And what is more beautiful is that the people wearing the belts in the ads already have abs! it’s amazing how the belt just makes all that fat vanish and when u take it off you got yourself a toned tummy. And okay, let’s agree that the belt really does all that it promises; then what about your butt or chest? The belt is only designed for the tummy region so that would mean that everything else stays the same and you will end up looking like a Photoshop Gone Wrong.
This belt is designed to literally shake the butt as some might call. It consists of two straps, sometimes just one that is placed on the buttocks and the machine is turned on… and now you shake. The vibrating belt jiggles all that mass away; or at least that’s what it claims. For losing weight, it is necessary to move the body in ways that we haven’t moved before but just standing there and feeling your bottom jiggle is simply weird and what would make it more fun is if you do it in a gym, cuz this fad machine is for some reason found in gyms!
“A woman walks in with style and confidence and men around her are tucking in their bellies to make way for her, and the moment she’s alone she’d let go of her breath that she had been using to suck in her own tond”. But now she doesn’t have to worry about all that fat because now she has the body shaper, she can hide all that fat and probably die of some stomach problem one day because she obviously is handicapped and can’t exercise or control her diet. And why should she? She has the body shaper because of which it’s okay for her to be moti because now it’s all under wraps.
The cell rollers. Short for cellulite rollers. All you have to do is rub yourself in front and back motion as if slowly you’re scratching a machar ka daana. As the name indicates it’s for cellulite, that wobbly skin you have especially on your thighs and buttocks. What this does is somehow gently rub away the layers of fat from under your skin making the cellulite go away making you thinner. Like what even?! It’s impossible for me to get the biology and physics of this but one thing I’m sure about is that anyone who uses it will get bruises.
So don’t get into the fancy trap of these magic weight loss belts, they’re certainly below the belt and claim false things. There’s no easy way to weight loss because everything beautiful doesn’t come easy.
