Well, people in America and other 1st world countries are so good at farming that we have to much food. So we must keep the food from rotting by
eating it. Now we get fat, so how to lose it?
People like to jump on bandwagon diets and fad diets. The Hollywood 48 hour drink diet is one of the most popular. Only problem is the fact it is a
classed up fast. What you do is drink the mix whenevr you are hungry and drink that and only that for two days. Well, don't eat for two days of
course you lose weight. Only problem is once you start to eat again, you gain weight back.
Here is the Scam!
Now, people see the before and after photos and think the diet did it. Nope. It is a diet company scam. What they do is look for someone athletic
that was recently injured. Now this person can no longer excercise, run marathons, whatever it was that they did. They are paid to eat, thats right,
paid to eat while they are injured. Then when they are not injured they get their picture taken, the before photo. They go on the diet and lose
weight, and pose for the after photo. But it isn't the diet that made them lose weight, it was the fact that they were no longer injured and went
back to their way of life. If you excercise, run marathons, swim the English Channel, so forth, then are injured, call up one of the diet companies,
they'll pay you millions to eat. Then when not injured go back to your daily way of life of excercise, marathon running, English Channel swimming,
whatever, and there you go. When a person did this and felt guilty he was going to come out and tell his story. But guess what? The diet company
made him sign a contract that made it so if he were to tell the truth on tv, he would be sued.
Dieting is bad for your health. Doctors agree, starving yourself is not healthy. Now, with Atkins, slim-fast, so forth, that is another post.
