More from Fitbie: 3 Ways to Stay Slim for Good
After some investigating, Today found other weight loss supplement companies that have used Shadwell’s photos without her permission. But it gets worse: The team also uncovered ways in which before-and-after photos are doctored up to look real. How so? Photoshop, or through other industry tricks like overhead lighting to make muscles appear more defined.
Moral of the story: Take those tempting, quick-fix ads with a grain of salt. The fraudulent before-and-after photos are just a reminder that real results don’t happen overnight, and there’s no magic potion for instant weight loss. A healthy lifestyle, filled with a balanced diet and regular exercise, is the key to safely dropping pounds that won’t come back around as quickly as they left!
