Does the Shake Weight Work?

I’m a sucker for infomercials. I could waste a whole afternoon dreaming of melting inches off my waist with a simple DVD or device.

Ivillage.com recently reviewed ten weight loss products sold on infomercials to see if they live up to their claims.  The one I was most interested in? The Shake Weight. Surprise, surprise it doesn’t work! (Though I still get an ab workout from laughing at the ridiculous infomercial).

See how the other nine products faired?

While there are a few items on ivillage’s list that do in fact work, it’s important to keep in mind that there is no quick gimmick that can replace good, old fashioned exercise and healthy eating.
