Kirstie Alley weight loss products are awful. The lead product, Rescue Me, is just sugar with some vitamins. Ignore the celebrity endorsements and take a look at what this stuff really is – junk.
Kirstie Alley Weight Loss Products
After considerable searching on the two websites where Kirstie Alley markets her weight loss program (KirstieAlley.com and Kirstie Alley’s Organic Liaison), I have concluded that she does not want to publicize the ingredients of her lead weight loss product, Rescue Me.
I was all set to examine the ingredients list and do some research on them. Unfortunately, the list is either not there or it is so well hidden that I couldn’t find it.
Nevertheless, people who have submitted scans or photos of the Rescue Me label information, after purchasing the product, have made it available to the public. That is, to the public who is persistent enough to find it. A Google search on “organic liaison” AND “nutrition facts” brought some interesting results. One came from a TV news station in Dallas (link no longer active) via a TV news station in Portland (Doctor finds mostly sugar in Kirstie Alley’s diet formula). It quoted a Dr. Ilana Bragin, as below:
The Web site doesn’t list what’s in the product, so News 8 in Dallas purchased a bottle of the “Rescue Me” elixir for $49.95 and brought it to Methodist Dallas Medical Center Dr. Ilana Bragin. Her specialty is weight loss management.
“The nutrition facts don’t ever lie,” Dr. Bragin said as she examined the label. “What I see here is a bunch of juices – you’ve got grape juice, lime juice, some cranberry juice and you’ve got a lot of sugar. You’ve got agave nectar as the second or third ingredient, which is basically sugar.”
“This is really a lot of juice, some sugar, and a couple vitamins that haven’t ever been proven ever to do very much for your appetite suppression or weight loss,” Bragin concluded.
Another site had this image of the Nutrition Facts label:
Of course, Nutrition Facts are not ingredients, just a summary of certain components of what is in them.
Dr. Bragin hit the nail on the head: it is a big sugar load -10 grams of sugars out of 15 grams of carbohydrates. This accounts for all 60 calories per serving.
The vitamins and minerals on the label are irrelevant.
I almost feel speechless about this junk. Therefore I am not going to say another thing. You be the judge.
