Weight Loss - Before and After Fakes?

Anyone seen those before and after photos from a weight loss program? Do you believe they're real? I'm always skeptical about those photos. Never really trusted them...



The only photos I do trust are the photos from The Biggest Loser. Awesome.

  1. i heard that they hire professional trainers to get fat, then to lose the weight again.

    if so, it's not that improbable, except the faces don't match

  2. I believe plenty of the before/after photos are real, but they don't get there from bow-flex and shit.

  3. There are ways of photoshopping images to make a person's starting size look much worse than it really is, and a person's after picture look much better than it really is. There's a scene about this in Bigger, Faster, Stronger that you could probably find on youtube.

  4. first off i agree with personal projects. I think some are real some are fake. in that picture the guy is smiling got a haircut, shaved his bod, got a tan, and is wearing nicer clothes. So it isn't just a weight change picture.

  6. I too have been very skeptic of these shots. Lots of the time they look like two completely different people.

  8. I understand that your face may change a bit after weight loss, but that's ridiculous, come on the dude doesn't even look the same.

  14. I always believe they're fakes, it's just so easy to go and photoshop them. They'd be stupid not to.

  17. The pictures from the "Buy our drink and you'll be thin in a week" are faked of course. But there are some real ones. Esepcially in fitness boards.

  18. I used to believe they were real :c
    but nowadays it's easy to do something like that, maybe not to the extremes of the picture you have in your blog, but with the right lighting, posing + photoshop it can be faked easily enough

  19. Most of them are complete bullshit, at the very best the person worked out and then they shopped, tanned, and changed their standing position to make them look the best they could.

  20. I've been getting into working out your advice is great!

  23. Some are probably real, but I've seen some that don't even look close.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yeah, I don't believe those before and after photos for a second.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I do not think I could believe those pics... unless the guy was that ripped to begin with, then on purpose got reallllly fat, and lost it all just to become famous and get his own tv show or work out video.

  26. This pictures are almost all fake in my opinion :\.

    ReplyDelete
  27. This pictures are 99% of the time fake. I always just ignore them

    ReplyDelete
  28. Not all of them are fake but the one you posted up there is hilarious. Even a blind person would figure out that this one is fake....

    ReplyDelete
  29. Whatever that maybe, results are not happening in a few months. That possibly could be a 2 year photo

    ReplyDelete
  30. looks pretty extreme to me. probably fake

    ReplyDelete
  31. they dont even look like they are the same person!

    ReplyDelete
  32. These and those hair loss commercials always have some of the fakes claims. its hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yeah, they're just trying to get you to buy a product, I don't think they're real either.

    ReplyDelete
  34. None of them ever use the product they claim. Most are just body builders who get paid to get fat shortly after a competition.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think that some of those photos are real and some aren't. I know people who have actually been in a weight loss commercial that really did work for them, so at least those photos are real. :)
