Yo-Yo Diet Mags

[Photograph of magazine cover - carb lovers diet]I FINALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT’S GOING ON WITH YO-YO DIETS.

It is a conspiracy between the slimming diet industry, the media and ordinary, gullible women. They tell you of the latest diet craze, even if it is the exact opposite of the truth, science, or even next month’s new diet craze.

Here’s a perfect example:

“THE CARB LOVER’S DIET”

(tick) Feel full and flatten your tum!

(tick) Lose 6lb this week

(tick) Eat crisps, drink wine!”

There is even a picture of a gorgeous young model tucking into a plate of pasta! Honestly!

This diet will definitely make you fatter, and so you will buy in to the next diet.

If you are interested in the history of dieting and manipulation, click here. If you cannot be bothered following the link or reading up, then let me just say that it is not a simple energy-in, energy-out equation; you can put AAA batteries in your car’s petrol tank, but it’s not the same effect as putting petrol in there. Sure, you put in a lot of energy, but it is the form that the energy takes — whether it is a carbohydrate, starch, fibre, sugar, alcohol, protein, or fat.

The only diet that has been scientifically proven to help you lose weight is one that reduces/ controls the available carbohydrates.  That flies in the face of the Carb Lover’s Diet!

People get exploited because there is a lot of confusion about health and well being goals.  Trying to lose weight is not the same thing as becoming aerobically fitter, stronger, or even healthier.  A healthy diet is not the same as the diet of an athlete or slimmer.  Things are getting worse when the gullible can be so easily exploited!

Deep Fried Proles

Fryer for ProlesTHE GLASWEGIAN DIET IS FAMOUS FOR DEEP FRYING EVERYTHING.

Probably the most disgusting example is the Deep Fried Mars Bar.  No wonder we have such a bad health record. I noticed a cheap electric stainless steel counter-top deep fat fryer in a local shop the other day.

“Turn on for style” is the tag-line. Yeah, right.

Can you see the brand name.  It is “Prolex”, but the way it is shown, it definitely looks like “Prole” is quite distinct from the St Andrew’s Cross. Yes, this is is aimed at the Proles who live in Scotland.

Things are getting worse when being common/ working class is actively marketed.  This is basically saying, “You are poor, eat chips and fry your Mars bars at home”.

How Women Get Fat

[Picture of Take a Break magazine - Men make Women Fat banner]FINALLY WE HAVE THE ANSWER TO WHY WOMEN ARE FAT.

It must have taken scientists years of meticulous study, but they have found the reason for feminine obesity, and they chose to publish their findings in the most eminent of journals – “Take a Break”.

Click on picture taken in local newsagents shop to enlarge.

Yes, the answer is summed up on the front cover top banner: “Men Make Women Fat”.

Things must be getting worse when magazine covers can make claims such as this — along with the “Proof”.

The truth is that most women think they are fat because of role models pushed through the media since Twiggy was invented to sell teenagers a lifestyle, a look and products galore. My advice is to take a break from reading such trashy magazines.

Big Pupils

[picture of chip shop kids' lunch menu special]MY EYES GREW LARGE IN DISBELIEF WHEN  I SPOTTED THIS CHILDREN’S LUNCH MENU IN A LOCAL SHOP.

No wonder kids are fat these days!

  • 1/2 pizza (deep fried) and chips
  • sausage and chips
  • popcorn chicken and chips
  • chips
  • roll and chips
  • chips and curry
  • chips and gravy
  • chips and cheese
  • fritters
  • roll and fritters

Deep fried fat hell is on the school menu! Not a green vegetable, not a meat (except from chicken and sausage), just deep fried fatty potatoes basically!

Things are getting worse when shops are able to target school children in this way.
