Weight loss is big business and when it comes to dropping a few pounds, we’re all looking for a quick fix. Owner Steve Fitch has opened a new business in Fargo that claims to help customers achieve the weight loss they desire, with a simple spray.
Spray Your Fat Away is located at 1638 32nd Ave. South in Fargo, alongside Laser Advantage. The product, the HCG diet program, is a homeopathic spray that is sprayed under the tongue. Fitch and his business were recently featured on Inforum.com, where he said it’s possible to lose up to a pound of fat per day.
“We’ve had such success with this program in Las Vegas, I wanted to bring it here,” he said. “I wanted to bring this home.”
Fitch is a Fargo native who lives in Las Vegas and works in marketing. He’s done marketing work for A New Me, a Las Vegas weight-loss clinic that sells the spray developed by Carol Ann Chaney. Chaney has a doctorate in nutrition.
Fitch said he saw the success of A New Me clients in Las Vegas and Miami, and tried it himself. He said he lost 27 pounds in 22 days this spring. His younger sister lost 65 pounds in 90 days, he said.
Fitch describes the product as safe and natural. He said it triggers your brain into releasing or metabolizing 2,000 calories within the body.
Followers of the program binge on high-calorie foods for three days. On the fourth day, they start eating a 500- to 800-calorie-per-day diet, spraying three squirts of the HCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, spray under their tongue in the morning and at night.
Hunger is not an issue, Fitch said, because of the spray.
“It’s not a magic spray,” Fitch said. “There are only two reasons why people gain weight: poor metabolism and bad eating habits. We’ve taken care of both.”
The cost starts at under $500 for a 30-day supply. Those interested can learn more about the weight loss program at the store, or call (701) 478-7932.
