The coffee has Garcinia Cambogia in it. I tried GC a few years ago and lost a few pounds. Gained them back (at the time), but oh well. I bought the coffee last time it was offered. It tastes, meh, okaaay. Interestingly, I got the “jitters” from one cup. I tried this coffee three different times and got the jitters every.single.time. I was sitting at a desk each time. Maybe if I went for a walk or exercised It would’ve been better. IDK.
I’m impressed that the manufacturer wrote “gingerr” on the “superfood” package instead of “ginger”. Also, I fell for the caffeinated peanut butter (not actually peanut butter, apparently there are rules about what can be called peanut butter and what can’t). I’m not falling for this one.
I’m guessing the “superfood” isn’t actually food either. Also, the warnings on the “weight loss” “coffee” are hilarious, in a “I’m not drinking that ever” sort of way.
@ignoramus There’s a long-time mehmber here who is always complaining how she doesn’t have any money, her car, computer & cats need money to fix them and how she lives in a shitty apartment because she is on the dole.
She’s been asking/fund-raising for years now and they haven’t banned her. If your story gets a little stale, just switch it up a little and repost it. She even has bragged somebody is paying for her VMP membership. Don’t be shy.
Don’t forget to go back and “bump” it by making a minor correction or comment. Keep your name out there!
@therealjrn I was fortuitous enough to pickup one of those oft forgotten and rather mythical (In the urban legend sense) yet fully vetted, authenticated, and certificated by Challenger Gray and Christmas, no less, genuine article Tiny Violins by Ant Stradivarius (the Master’s bastard son he sired with the gypsy Arabian horseshoe blacksmiths wet-nurse, bundle of joy to no one in his father’s eyes the dude was microscopic at birth the mother was carrying mostly water weight she sneezed and the little feller came out swimming the breast stroke— the will to power in this little paramecium was inspiring to say the least. Anyways I digress but Ant grew to a full 2 inches at 18 took on the mantle of his father to his fathers dismay. He mostly hid behind mason jars watching Daddy Stradi work on his now famous violins, but took up a Pixie dust habit (a precursor to Meh-th) in order to little man the workshop at night while his Dada snored in the cottage next door. He made these freakin Huge versions of his fathers violins— which just seemed tiny to everyone else— fortunately he had no social life and the drugs made his output surpass his dads— of course the father who was kind of a big jerk-shmuck-dbag for hating on his own bastard flesh and blood and attached poor sweet lil Ant to a funicular with a hay wire and he was never heard from again at least by historians. —Anywhodles.com (I own this URL frfr) — the Meh Godbots bestowed upon us Mehnna Eaters one blitzed Blesséd hungover morn of yore one is these there fiddles the little rascal Ant fashioned and I learned to pluck it with my pinkie and baby toe something that sounds like “Devil in the breadpan pickin up dough down yonder in Georgia” and I sweart that day I would play it for the poor little devil only when times were tough and things would prestigagitate (prestidigitate? — oh if only I sold my soul to learn how to talk pretty someday and spell rite! Oh wells— I’m sure u gets it so like I was saying I’ll be alright. Thankie!
@mediocrebot Oh-Nose! What portends this here ornery critter to appear neath my verbiage? If I didst offend thine meh language algorithms I do beg forbearance in this one instance since I saw no puritanical bylaws posted and did need to keep this historical analogue’s historicity intact without intent to cause hysterical pregnancies or hysteria én-masse — kindly overlook my innocent ignorance of polite platitudes and comment-decency I resolve to dissolve my filthy mind in a mild detergent forsooth and anon. Thank ye
Has anyone else found that “clinical study” at UConn published anywhere? Seems this is new news to the Internet.
“Patented by a large University of the United States (University of Minnesota)” Again what exactly is patented? It seems like there is a plethora of similar products being sold.
Depending on my current dietary needs and level of exertion of an upcoming task or activity this is quite a moving target. Based on the advice of nutritionists and medical experts I have a variety of items in the pantry and refrigerator that meet those goals. To paraphrase the penultimate wise man Aesop from the fable “The Ass Eating Thistles” Everyone to his taste: one man’s meat is another man’s poison, and one mans poison is another man’s meat; what is rejected by one person may be valued very highly by another.
@Dog19026 Here - this is what you might be looking for (study and journal is imbedded in the article). Of course the quantity of what is in there may make no difference and “significantly” better may just mean statistically significantly different and is likely true based on the fact it is in a peer reviewed journal. There may well be no practical difference that is useful (with a big enough sample size a 1/2 pound difference could be statistically significantly different but we’d both agree 1/2 pound difference is nothing to write home about), but technically that sentence, with it’s weasel words would pass muster.
quantity of what is in there may make no difference
meaning the quantity consumed in the study of what they tested to get those results and how much was added to this product may not be the same. The study is what they are attributing to the actual ingredient and not to how much of that ingredient is in the product (so again weasel words). Of course they may have put in enough but you can’t tell from the words used on the box.
@Kidsandliz Thanks for your reply. Appreciated. I did do a little more digging using your resource as a guide. The Centre for Reviews and Dissemination, University of York did determine that the weight loss study involving CR picolinate was probably tainted based on rigorous statistical analysis. Their conclusion was the study was looking for a desirable outcome and the data pool was manipulated to reflect that. (Hmm current events too?) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK69964/#:~:text=The meta-analysis showed that,the possibility of publication bias.
Even so I see absolutely no conclusive proof on their packaging or on their website any reference to evidence of studies of Lean Joe products nor cite any actual patents.
@Dog19026 If something actually worked well it would also be on the market through legitimate medical outlets not just tossed into coffee and sell in over the counter stuff not sold in the actual drug aisle. If it survived a clinical trial (not just a “study”) then they could get FDA approval and sell it via an Rx. I’d wager that later wasn’t done.
Typically with “natural” stuff they isolate the chemical/ingredient responsible for the effect, purify it so they can count on a dose being what they say it is (rather than the somewhat random doses you’d get from a certain amount of plants) patent the end result of that set of actions, run a clinical trial, get FDA approval if it is effective enough and safe enough to make it worthwhile to sell, and then sell it via an Rx initially.
