Happy Memorial Day. For dieters, Memorial day had a different meaning, it was the last day you could eat freely before you started your diet, which often meant bingeing. I no longer have those kinds of memorial days, I just eat and tried to make to include vegetables.
Thanks for Charlotte Coopers' Obesity Time Bomb for pointing this out. Apparently Finland is now free of Weight Watchers. Apparently the Finnish were not interested in "lifestyle" change enough for Weight Watchers to find them profitable. In other words, like most of the diet industry, $ comes before anything. I want people to remember that. Diet industries care about how much money they make, not your health.
I really think if kids of all sizes are left alone about eating, they will consume the same. When we single out fat kids who are most likely eating the same as their peers, we set a dangerous precedent of not focusing on the health and self esteem of all children.
In other news, Oily shit aka Alli is being investigated for causing liver problems. Here comes my diet drug mantra again: "No diet drug or supplement has been proven to work in the long run."
Have a wonderful day!
