Well, now it seems Khloe's rapid weight loss wasn't all thanks to hard work and eating right. This week, Khloe took to her web site and shared the real deal, "So as you know, I lost a lot of weight recently, and part of it was a result of my using Quick Trim." The youngest Kardashian sister goes on to list all four of the products in the Quick Trim line that she used, including a sculpting gel, a 14-day "burn and cleanse," a 48-hour cleanse and an "8-hour weight loss formula that burns calories 300 percent times faster!"
That's a lot of products -- all of which are touting fast weight loss. Most experts recommend losing just two pounds a week for safe and long-term weight loss.
The Quick Trim web site features both Khloe and Kim Kardashian, who are clearly paid endorsers. Yup, turns out Kim uses the products as well. "Using Quick Trim helped boost my metabolism and jump start my weight loss," the curvy reality star says on her web site.
These products aren't out yet, but will be sold at GNC stores (you can pre-order now). Caffeine seems to be the major player both in the Burn & Cleanse and Extreme Burn. Fast Cleanse is primarily a digestion-resistant polysaccharides and lemon juice.
The offer of having a body like Kim Kardashian is a pretty tempting one, but we're leery of weight loss supplements that make too-good-to-be-true claims, like "Jump Start Your Metabolism" and "Burn Calories All Day," which Quick Trim does. Plus, none of their products are approved by the FDA so it's impossible to say how effective or safe they are.
