Last night our former employee, friend forever, and my diet guru Regina Martinez visited us. She was very upset because her before and after photos were being used as advertisement by Lean and Fab. She was surprised when several of her friends sent her private messages asking her about Lean and Fab.
Apparently, the Internet was splashed with her photos as Lean and Fab’s unwitting “model”.
By the way, she has never ever used Lean and Fab in her life. What upset her more was the “From 45” waistline down to 31” after two months” claim. True, Reg lost inches off her waist but the statistics shown here were not even accurate! Nag-iimbento lang sila! What annoyed Reg even more was the “after two months” claim! It took her waaaaay more than two months to slim down! I witnessed how she shed those pounds through discipline: diet and exercise talaga! Walang magic. She was helped by Herbalife and then USANA Nutrimeal but we all know that the two still require the user to exercise and to refrain from eating a lot of unhealthy (aka yummy) foods.
Moreover, Reg’s “Before” photos were stretched horizontally to make her look fatter than she really was, while her “After” photos were stretched vertically to make her look thinner than she really is. Para mas magmukhang effective talaga ang Lean and Fab.
This is soooo disappointing. Nakaka–turnoff. This teaches us not to believe everything we see in ads. Remember this: If it’s too good to be true, then it probably is. For a long time, I used to believe several slimming ads with “Before” and “After” photos. Good thing that Motherhood and Randy would often tell me I was so naïve to believe such, thus I don’t really buy. And I thank them for being circumspect. Moreover, I also think that if just by drinking a relatively inexpensive and “safe” slimming tea/capsules is the key, then bakit yumaman si Vicki Belo at bakit nagkalat pa ang mga gym? And if it were really that simple, how come there are still plenty of overweight people? ‘Di ba?
Reg has already asked this Nancy Go to take down her photos, but as of last night it was still there, helping advertise a product that never helped Reg in any way to slim down.
On behalf of Reg, I am also asking the marketing/advertising team of Lean and Fab to cease and desist from using Reg’s photos. The top management of Lean and Fab may not know this—a seller/agent may have misled you into thinking his/her client slimmed down because of your product, but now we are saying that Reg is not one of them. So please stop misleading the people.
Tell me what you think!
