The reason for that is that they are marketed as being effective at losing weight, but I can't tell you if they are. It's like buying something that says "you can get it with a discount," when it's just a standard box. You know that you can get the same thing if you go to the store, but don't know how to find out. That is my mission here on this website.
One of the products I am reviewing is called the Nootrobox, and it is made by the company Nutrisystem. They sell it under the brand name Metagenetics, and I am reviewing it here on The Paleo Doctor because I have been using it for the last two months. I would not be interested in a weight loss product if it didn't actually work. The Nootrobox does look very similar to a pack of gum. I like this because it gives me a more solid foundation for what I'm doing. I can pick and choose what products I really want to use. I can go from a diet to a weight loss product, but I can't go from one to the other, because the gum will make me drowsy and it makes me hungry.
