Oliver is offering folks who try his formula one dollar per pound they lose in the first month of participation. That’s right: he will PAY YOU a dollar for every pound you lose while trying his Calorie Control Crystals.
Certainly this shows Oliver’s belief in his product. However, what exactly IS this product, and does it work? We did some research into the Calorie Control Crystals and here’s what we found:
Q: How safe is CCC?
A: By shaking the natural crystals on food, you are not modifying or making any changes to the way your body is supposed to work, and you’re not ingesting a toxic chemical. Feel free to sprinkle a dash of CCC on any food you enjoy. And CCC will not alter the taste of your food.
Q: How fast will the crystals work?
A: The easiest answer to that question is: fast enough. Many people lose 20-30 pounds in a matter of weeks, and many lose a pound a day, but others lose faster or slower. It depends on your body type and on how overweight you were to start. Also, the rate of weight loss can change over months until you reach your goal. That’s normal. I firmly believe that you will be very satisfied with how many pounds you lose. That’s why CCC has an unconditional GUARANTEE. And CCC guarantees you lose a minimum of a pound a day for 30 days.
Q: When I lose fat, where will I see improvement?
A: Generally, your entire body will benefit. Individuals lose weight first in different places. Most likely, your face and waistline will start looking better in the first week. Women can plan on dropping down three dress sizes within a month. Men will go down three belt sizes.
Q: What effects will I feel?
A: CCC is not a drug, so there will be no dizziness, anxiety, restlessness or other side effects that are common with drugs. However, as a consequence of having lost weight, you will feel lighter in body and spirit and you will probably be delighted in finding extra energy.
Q: How much of the CCC should I shake on my food?
A: The exact amount is not important since there is no toxicity. As a guideline, sprinkle as much as if you were lightly salting food. Cover the surface of your portion. Note that CCC crystals do not contain salt and add no taste to food. You will cut calories by almost 3/4 (75 percent!) on every morsel of food that has been sprinkled.
Q: How long will I have to continue using CCC?
A: After you have lost the amount of weight you wanted to shed, you can try to cut back slightly on the sprinkling. If you start to regain weight, sprinkle a bit more of the crystals. When you have established the right amount, stay with it. If you haven’t already done so, begin an exercise program under medical advice. Yes, CCC usage will cause you to lose weight even if you don’t exercise, but men and women both look better with a little more muscle.
