Nutrisystem ads claim lose 5 pounds in one week. What is actually being lost: fat, water, or muscle tissue?

Nutrisystem ads claim lose 5 pounds in one week. What is actually being lost: fat, water, or muscle tissue?

Weight loss claims: When one of the thousands of weight loss products puts out an ad claiming a patient will lose 5 or more pounds in one week, a doctor usually thinks "pounds sterling" or "British pounds", as in money. It's marketing. It's advertising. To lose > 5 pounds a week (it would be fat plus its related water), one can exercise all day and limit intake to 1000 calories a day... but it is not healthy to do.

NoneBestLearnReality: Despite all the commercials, they are not selling health but convenience ; reduced quantities, for a price! None of them have done large clinical trials (exempted by dshea act 1994) to evaluate their efficacy; instead hiring well-paid "celebrities" to sell their wares. While they do occasionally work for some, none have any long term success. Best study issues yourself ; learn what works for you!
