Queerty PSA: Don’t Fall For Andrology (Or Any Get Thin Quick Scheme)

The “board certified plastic surgeon” who created (or at least agreed to put him name on) the topical gel Andrology should be taken out back and … stripped of his license. Andrology FBFM (that’s “Fat Burner For Men”) supposedly “shrinks and reduces” things like love handles, beer guts, belly fat, man boobs, and chest fat. Just like vitamin supplements sold during late night infomercials will make your penis bigger! They’ve even got an authoritative looking chart and all kinds of explanations of the benefits of guarana, green tea extract, and bitter orange extract. None of which, despite the method being “clinically proven,” is likely to do you much good. (And which marketing genius came up with a brand name that sounds just like “androgyny,” which this product’s target audience likely doesn’t want to identify with?) Ready for the real secret to losing weight that you don’t have to apply to your muffin top?

Stop eating so much, and start exercising.

Andrology charges $55.00 for a six-week supply; our advice is free. Shipping included!

Now, this is our favorite of the two Andrology spots, because it exploits our own self-hatred — when you’re thinner, you’re more confident!

      Aw c’mon. I spend money going to the gym in hopes of someday getting thinner and hotter, and that’s a lost cause too — why shouldn’t people pay for the pleasure of entertaining themselves with false hopes?

      This is a true public service announcement. Too often, despite really knowing better, wishful thinking can make us so gullible. Thanks for reminding us that if it sounds too good to be true, it is.

      @Distingué Traces:

      If you’re going to the gym and not seeing results, there’s something wrong with your program. Ultimately, science proves that hard work will allow you to have less fat and more muscle. The gym gives you a legitimate service.

      This stuff is worthless shit that will do no one any good.

      Why is it hard to see the difference?

      This from a website that overloads us with with shirtless boys who’ve been worked out and airbrushed to within an inch of their lives. That’s not to mention, also, all the people who get riled up when someone says that said shirtless boy is too skinny/lean.

      Go fig.

      Shipping is not free. I pay $40/month to have Internet via broadband. ;-)

      Rowen, you sound fat.
      Why people even try this stuff is beyond me.
      Get some will power and lift some weights. Christ almighty.

      green tea in products has been linked to man boobies. it doesn’t even matter what product it is in. pills and products like shampoo and body wash evidently cause the growth of female characteristics in men. this was in the news a while back.

      The defense rests.

      85 to 90 percent of health and fitness is diet.
      10 to 15 percent is movement and genetics.
      Just dictating to people what to do or not to do is usually from someone who ignores these basic facts, and who judges unknown people prematurely. Who’s to say that the people who try one product or another aren’t already working out regularly, and watching their diets? I’m certified as a trainer and I can tell you that not all fitness philosophies work for all people. Supplements, internal or topical (as in applied to the skin) still constitute as dietary supplementation. So logically a product such as this one might help, or not. But don’t judge unless you’ve held a study somewhere.
