Toning tables

Can anyone explain these things.
Big girl on my f/b has 'lost' 15inches... whatever that means in 4 weeks on the toning tables.
Same girl routinely lost 2lb a week for the past couple years and looked absolutely no different when she claimed to have dropped stones and stones over time.

So you lay on the beds the beds move and you're exercising ????

    These things were a brief fad back in the 80s/early 90s. Of course they do nothing, they are simply moving your limbs, you are doing no work at all. But someone who starts a 'course' of using them is likely also doing other things and watching what they eat so the people running the scam can claim credit for any weight loss success. Also, 15 inches isn't necessarily a lot, sometimes they take measurements from so many places it actually represents only a modest loss overall.

    PMSL...  maybe if your muscles are so atrophied from lack of use then the action of having them moved by a table would shock your metabolism into action???
    You probably get more actual aerobic response from climbing onto and off the table than all the time you are on it

    The 15 inches thing is a woman thing. They measure all over the place then add it up??? Waist, bust, thighs etc. So if they lose 1 inch off the waist, 1 inch off the bust, 1 inch off each leg thats a four inch loss////////NO! NO! NO! it means you lost 1 inch !!Q!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bonkers things, similar to the 'flabuloss' type things where you stand on a vibrating plate to loose weight, get fit and put points in the bank for even more junk food! I knew a girl who did weightwatchers, I sh1t you not if she lost weight she went to the bakers and got cakes as a 'treat' for doing well. She did loose some weight but has now regained it plus at least 20% more.
