Junk Science Advice (can go f off)
Monday, May 21, 2012
This is something that really makes me mad (well I have to bite my tongue on).
Last week we had a customer come into where I work, and we noted he had lost weight.
How? Well apparently his doctor told him to not eat BREAKFAST, OR LUNCH. and by gosh he`s lost 4kilo (about 9lbs) in 4 months. And he gave his reasoning that in a developed country we eat too much (not untrue) and in starving nations like Africa you don`t get fat people (well ok...)
a) That is called starving (hello slow metabolism)
b) I can`t believe a doctor would suggest that (or maybe I can Japanese doctors are like 30 years behind science).
And then he turns to me and suggests I do the whole skipping two meals thing.
UUuuuuuuuh excuse me, I`ve lost 4kilos in 2 months twice as fast as you. And I know he`s cheating cos he`d had lost more than 4 kilos in 4 months if he really was only eating one meal a day.
Makes me mad that the way to lose weight in this country is to eat miniscule amounts (eat a meal replacement bar) and/or skip meals. What about nutrition? Energy for your body? I have to start tuning out when I hear this advice being thrown around, cos I just get mad at the misinformation but no one listens to my sensible advice.
But no one listens to me because I`m fat and don`t know what I`m talking about obviously (you eat breakfast?? Your too fat to be eating breakfast!!).
Well f you, I eat 3 meals a day plus snacks and losing fine kthanks
