Stuff People Buy That Don’t Work

Here comes trouble, my first real trouble on BSP. I’m going against urban legend, and people are naturally hostile against something ripping into their moneymaking schemes.

Someone I know sells this stuff called Zeal. Zeal is supposed to be a nutritional drink that does many things for the person who uses it, but I think it’s total bullshit. You know, if something’s a miracle and sold that way, it isn’t. Placebo effect, if that. I lived with a certified nutritionist and personal trainer for nine years. I think this Zeal stuff is not good because I’m somewhat educated, unlike most of the people pushing that shit. They’re snake oil salesmen/women and nothing more. It’s all about making money in a pyramid scheme. 

Of all the schemes I’ve thought of, this is damn near the worst because it turns people’s hope against them. They think there’s a miracle that gets their fat asses to lose weight without exercise. According to BSP (and just about every doctor that isn’t a scammer) that just doesn’t happen. According to reality, that doesn’t happen. Only morons and dumbasses think you lose weight by a) sitting on your fat ass drinking Zeal, chewing on buffalo wings, onion rings and chugging beer b) watching the Steve Wilkos Show and living a sedentary lifestyle. 

I’m sorry people. i’m not going to try that bullshit. Your phony cure everything just doesn’t work. You just want to believe your lifestyle doesn’t need to change because the product will fix you. When it doesn’t, they blame you, not their shitty product, then they go get you to sell it to people who should be your former friends. Making you a slimy scumbag just like the first person who sold you that shit.

It’s sad people take advantage of the desperate for financial gain. I’m sorry but I can’t defend the product, and I would if there was an ounce of unbiased evidence that it’s useful. That means something other than a Zeal huckster’s website.

Faith-based. Shameful.


About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.

  1. I am with you. There are so many products out there that promise to do the same thing that a good healthy diet does. Yea, it’s a no brainer!
