I Can Make You Thin…My Big Fat Ass

I need to blow off some steam right now so please excuse any excessive expletives.

It was my intention not to ever watch the new weight loss show on TLC — I Can Make You Thin, but last night I purposely reminded myself that it was coming on so I could check it out. I watched a few minutes and this guy started saying he was going to make you thin through the television; I changed the channel. Then I thought okay, give him the benefit of the doubt; so some time later I turned back to the show and this time the host was telling people to tap away their cravings; give me a fucking break. I am so tired of people trying to sell Americans a bunch of bull shit, instead of trying to sell the truth…Get up off your ass and exercise and put the fork down and stop eating too much food. That’s what we need to be sold on, the fast-food we are eating is killing us. Get back into the kitchen and cook healthy foods, stop eating that crappy processed food shit you are being sold on. Wake the hell up America, no one can stop this madness but us.

Move your ass and close your mouth.

 Okay, I’m done.

As always, be well

The Big Bad Diet Mafia

Let me preface this by saying, “Not all Diet Industry Organizations/Plan Creators are in it solely for the MONEY.” That being said, here we go.

We are so bombarded with weight loss gimmicks today that it can be very confusing. Sometimes it makes you feel stupid because you think, I couldn’t even follow that simple diet plan and forget about preparing the 20 receipes they throw in the back of the book. However, that is the gimmick, most of the commercial diets on the market today aren’t simple and set you up to fail. I cannot make the all too familiar claim that, “I have been on every diet in the book,” because I simply refuse to make someone else rich at my expense. Look, most of the time your self esteem is tied to body image and you want to believe that the next hot thing is going to be the “ONE” that works for you. It’s such a vulnerable time, you really don’t need the Diet Mafia promising to make you part of  “La Cosa Nostra” when they know that is never the real goal.
