There is a product called ReFirm by Complete Nutrition.
I cannot find it on their website, but the commercials on the radio claim that this stuff works by "shrinking your fat cells."
I know in nutrition, Fat grams have about 8 calories whereas Protein and Carbohydrates each run roughly 4 calories per gram.
So, if a Fat Cell stored in the body were to shrink, does that Fat Cell still have the same properties as a Fat Cell that has not been shrunk?
What has changed? Was water removed?
The commercial continues on to say that you can lose inches and fit into those clothes you no longer fit in.
I'm thinking all of the fat is still there and the person weighs about the same - their Fat Cells are just smaller. Now they are, what, more dense?
When the ReFirm program has ended, do these smaller Fat Cells regain their regular size the next time you have a glass of water?
