Here is an interesting article on NPR: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=15721992&ft=1&f=1001.
Basically, it says if you want to lose weight, simply try shaking it away for 15 minutes a day. Damn, don’t you wish you would have thought of that early? Seriously, anyone who can prove that sitting on a vibrating Lazy-Z-Boy would help you lose weight will probably win a Nobel Prize, not to mention untold fame and admiration from countless people around the world.
So, let me be the first to say it. If you want to lose weight: Screw the gym, ditch the pills, just sit your lazy ass down on a vibrating massage chair for 15 minutes a day ( or 30 minutes if you are really ambitious ), and you will be lean and mean in no time! Easiest diet in the world.
