Weight Loss Drug Scam
by Patrick Austin

Mr. Austin is a freelance writer who covers sports for a number of web sites including,, and He currently also covers entertainment and sports for Vainquer magazine.

The weight loss industry has hit a new low with a new weight loss drug that’s hit the market—Zetacap. It’s slogan is “The world’s first gastric bypass pill, you just can’t eat!”

First off, that is a terrible slogan, but putting that aside, promoting a pill to be just as effective as gastric bypass surgery is ridiculous.

Rest assured, this weight loss drug is nothing like gastric bypass surgery. The surgery closes off a majority of your stomach, so you are forced to eat less. All Zetacap is capable of doing is making you feel full for a few hours.

The ingredients in this weight loss drug are Xanthum Gum, Chinese Red Ginseng Root, Astragalus Root, Cayenne Fruit, Echinacea Whole Plant, Fo Ti Root, Golden Seal Root, Guarana Seed, Panax Ginseng Root & Extract and Siberian Ginseng Root.

Here is how this weight loss drug works - You take two Zetacap capsules before any meal along with a glass of water. The ingredients in Zetacap supposedly absorb the water and form a “blocking gel” inside your stomach within minutes. This gel will make you feel like you have just eaten a full meal. You will be full enough so you can't eat for the next five to six hours.

In my opinion, this is a terrible way to try to lose weight. You should not take something that will form a “blocking gel” inside your body. Furthermore, food is not your enemy when it comes to weight loss. You are able to eat six meals a day if you’d like, you just need to eat the right kinds of foods. Taking a product that fills you up so you don’t eat, will lead to temporary weight loss at best. Once you stop taking this weight loss drug, your stomach will crave a huge amount of food again and you’ll probably regain the weight you lost.

The price for this weight loss drug is $74.95 for ninety capsules. That’s highway robbery, especially when you consider the ingredients(listed above) that are in the product. You could go to your local health food store and buy all of those herbs for less than what Zetacap charges.

I can’t say this enough, the best and healthiest way to lose weight is by eating a healthy diet and starting an exercise routine. Taking a weight loss drug like Zetacap that fills your stomach up with liquid goo is not the answer to weight loss, at least not in the long term.
