A personal trainer and fitness blogger has shown how manipulative those advertisements for crazy supplements and quick weight loss plans can be. In just 15 minutes, Mel of MelVFitness, shows how she managed to lose 15 pounds. Well, at least how to make it look like you've shed the weight.

Mel promotes 'dropping truth bombs' on her blog and recently posted her own before and after photos that were taken just 15 minutes apart. The results are astonishing. OK, not really because, as you can read on her blog, using just a few tricks she was able to make her 'transformation'.

Check out my transformation! It took me 15 minutes. Wanna know my secret? Well firstly I ditched the phonewallet (fwallet) cause that shit is lame, swapped my bather bottoms to black (cause they're a size bigger & black is slimming), Smothered on some fake tan, clipped in my hair extensions, stood up a bit taller, sucked in my guts, popped my hip- threw in a skinny arm, stood a bit wider #boxgap, pulled my shoulders back and added a bit of a cheeky/Im so proud of my results smile. Zoomed in on the before pic- zoomed out on the after & added a filter. Cause filters make everything awesome. What's my point? Don't be deceived by what you see in magazines & on Instagram.. You never see the dozens of other pics they took that wernt as flattering. Photoshop can make a pig look hotter then Beyonce.
