VPX FiberTeq Rapid Fat Loss 540g Diet Fiber Supplement

When searching on eBay for good weight loss supplements, the one that seems to come up the most is hoodia gordonii, which is highly controversial, due to its questioned efficacy and the fact that many products claiming to contain actual hoodia actually do not.

So, I scrolled down the list, and what else did it come up with (item #200094556441)?

To put it slightly crudely, well, "No s@#%!."

It's pretty obvious...fiber is just plain good for you for a whole bunch of reasons, and it's a no-brainer that we should all be getting a lot more of it. Through various sources such as fruit, vegetables, whole grains, by increasing our intake, we can easily get more out of life by crapping a whole lot more often.

This is probably the first time I've seen it marketed as an actual weight loss supplement, and as I haven't found an ingredient list yet, I have no idea what's in it that is specific to inducing weight loss. A trip to the company website does reveal that the product has a warning label on it (words to the effect of not using the product if you are under 18, happen to be pregnant or nursing, etc.).
