Chin Fat

The (Ridiculous) Neckline Slimmer

I’ve been seeing commercials for a product called the Neckline Slimmer on TV. It’s only a matter of time before people start asking me if they should buy it…

In short, no. I do not believe that the “exercise” this device is used for will burn the fat that hangs beneath peoples’ chins. (Skipping the daily visits to McDonald’s and Starbucks, however, might.)

I see an inevitable problem that can result from using this product… the development of neck pain and headaches! I attempted to mimic this movement and my neck began hurting just a few minutes later. For patients with straight or reversed cervical curves, this device can only serve to make their problems worse.

Picture someone with a large beer belly. If the only change they made was attempting to do stomach crunches for two minutes a day, would they develop washboard abs? Never… Fat is fat. If you want to lose it, you have to change the foods you eat, and the pace/quantity in which you eat them.

On the other hand, the sale of these Neckline Slimmers will likely cause an increase in the number of visits people make to their chiropractor! So if you do buy one, I look forward to seeing you soon!
