    no. whats written on that page is just to get people to buy it, its exaggerated. using that would be about as effective as walking and is a complete waste of money. the stuff written on that site is just crazy babbling to influence sales, its bull.

    instead of wasting your money on that, go for a jog or join a gym or if you have to spend money, get a skip rope.

    never buy home products that you see on the tv or the internet. they are always a waste of money and people end up using them once and then leave it in the garage with 3 inches of dust on it.

    I use one of those at the gym. It tells me I loose about 120 calories in 10minutes. The at the gym has handles and stuff so it is like ur running or skiing. At the gym there is like a cue to get on it. If I was u I wouldnt buy it unless ur 100% sure ur gonna use it

    You wont lose weight if you're taking in more calories than you burn (oversimplification, but not everyone here is a biologist).

    saying that makes it seem like you have to physically burn the calories from exercise, which you dont. i could eat quite a bit of junk food everyday, do hardly any exercise yet i could drop bodyfat at the same time if i wanted to. its all about controling metabolism.

    Thats body fat, not overall weight. Metabolism is affected by both diet and exercise.

    It will work... but only if you use it religiously, ie at least once a day for a fair amount of time.

    exactly. you made it sound like if you eat 2000 calories in a day, you have to spend hours exercising to burn it off when you dont. i eat about 3000 cals per day most days, very rarely do cardiovascular exercise and have a 29 inch waist and about 10%bf. cardio is kinda overrated, although it is important.

    and metabolism is not just affected by diet and exercise, there are many other factors in it including thyroid function and hormone production, hydration, stress levels, sleep, food types, etc. thats why really low fat diets arent always good for losing weight because it often results in low hormone production, resulting in slower metabolism.

    No, because I didnt mention body processes, and it depends how active you are.

    Well, for comparison...I eat around 1400 a day, also rarely do cardio, have a 29inch waist and 16% bodyfat.

    Like I said, I oversimplified it.

    dont oversimplify things. it confuses people more than if you were talking about quantum physics or the m-theory.
