It’s Not About the Weight Loss – It’s About a Healthy Happy YOU

Standard

I just don’t get it.

Even though I’ve struggled with my weight most of my life, I just don’t get these weird and mostly expensive weight loss gimmicks.

Bride-to-Be Feeding Tube Diet – really? I cannot imagine someone who’d pay $150 a day to walk around with a tube up their nose.  Is sticking to a real nutritious low calorie whole foods plan really so much worse than sticking a tube up your nose?

Body Wraps – Measure yourself, pay someone $150 – $500 to wrap you in constrictive elastic bands agonize for an hour telling yourself this is good for you, get unwrapped and measure again – ooo look you’ve lost inches!  Yep, wait a couple hours and then measure yourself again…

Ear Stapling – Piercing, acupuncture, whatever, its been around for more than 10 years, and seems to be enjoying a bit of a come back. At about $60 per ear, if it really worked, it would not have gone away and there’d be at least three infomercials about it!

Diet Sunglasses – bwahahaha! if the food looks blue you’ll eat less of it. Tell that to my blue M&Ms. But a $20 price tag and the possibility of being mistaken for Johnny Depp ain’t all bad!

Weight Loss Soap – Well, heck you’ve got to wash anyway – why not give it  a whirl – but I wouldn’t pin all my desire for a healthy fit body on  a $3.50 bar of soap.

Tape Worms – ewwwwwww! C’mon people, seriously? Induce a tapeworm infestation? Maybe it causes weight loss because it is eating YOU and stealing all your nutrients! I know cancer treatments cause weight loss, too, anyone so desperate to lose weight they’d sign up for that? If so, I don’t want to know.

Diet Dinnerware – $22 forks & spoons with flashing red & green lights to tell you when to eat and when to put your fork down… I guess the old chew your food for the count of 20 and count to 10 before taking another bite is just beyond our automated world?

Why do so many of us got to such bizarre lengths to lose weight? Why is it so hard for us to just eat well and exercise?
