A San Antonio Express News investigative package questions the efficiency of Body Solutions, a widely advertised product supposed to contribute to weight loss. On of the stories follows the ups and downs in the career of Harry Siskind who, with his wife Patty, started Body Solutions, producer of weight loss products. The story details Siskind's tabloid past and his attempt to start a pilot television series. The articles reveal that - even though some researchers have believed in the new product - there is no evidence that Body Solutions products have contributed to the weight loss of the successful dieters. "The true sales force behind Body Solutions is made up of the disk jockeys and talk-show hosts at more than 1,000 stations across the country," reports the Express News.
