“Washington, D.C. – Dr. Mehmet Oz, the TV doctor who offers tips on living healthy to millions of people in America, testified before the Senate subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety and Insurance in June this year, in order to examine the protection of consumers from deceptive and false advertising of products that have to do with weight loss.
“Namely, in an episode of his show in May 2012, Oz touted green coffee bean extract as a product that would help people lose weight by virtually sitting around and doing nothing. As a result, the publicity that surrounded the product managed to help the manufacturer sell 500, 000 bottles of the pills.
“However, after being criticized for promoting false miracle cures, Oz took it upon himself to prove the effectiveness of the pills.
“I’ve never lied to people or tried to convince them that they could improve their health by using magic. Instead, I tried to recommend a solution that would get them the results they wanted without having to work hard for them. The fact to the matter is that green coffee bean extract does work; only, for it to have the desired effect, it needs to be used in combination with several other dietary requirements…like avoiding fatty food, alcohol and cigarettes, not to mention candy. Additionally, you might want to hit the gym, as well; then the pills will really kick in”, he said.
“But, in order to really maximize your weight-loss results, there’s a ritual you need to perform once a day every day, in order to trigger the process, and you can’t miss out on it. When you wake up in the morning, you need to get up off the left side of your bed, go to the nearest window, open it, put both of your index fingers behind your head in the form of antennas and scream out loud: “I’m an idiot for thinking that losing weight can be done by sitting around! I just love doctor Oz!”. That’ll definitely get the job done”, he concluded.
