The Promise: "This is the holy grail of slimming potions; packed with NINE well proven ingredients designed to help combat fat deposits, tighten your tum, reduce puffiness, and -- most importantly -- maximize lipolysis. Lipolysis is the way your body breaks down the fat stored in fat cells; giving you slim fat cells and a slimmer silhouette. Get Waisted's ingredients are well proven in lab tests to dramatically increase the destruction of fat. If fat is the enemy, let us introduce you to your new best friend."
The Real Deal: My mom is 70 and has a fabulous figure. Thanks to her (and her mom) I'm one of those annoying people who never works out, eats cheese doodles and still looks decent in clothes. BUT, I did have twins and gained a whopping 96 lbs. when pregnant (nearly doubling my weight) and the skin on my stomach has never recuperated. I used this cream religiously for 30 days and, dang if my pouchy belly isn't smoother, tauter and all-around less icky to behold.
The Upshot: I'm not typically one who'd buy into a "cream that slims" line but, since it seemed to work on me, I'm sold.
Oh, and while we're at it, here's a list of my other faves.
