How The Slimming Industry Lied To You!

posted on: September 07, 2016. posted in: Weight loss

"Hey, whatcha up to?"

"Me? Oh just creating the slimming industry."

"The slimming industry? What's that all about?"

"Well, can you keep a secret?"

"Sure! Hit me..."

"Ok, but don't tell a soul. Here's the deal. There are a lot of fat people around, right? And they got fat overeating crappy processed food. Let's face it, nobody got fat on steak and salad! So the solution is pretty obvious really...

Teach them to stop eating processed crap and to start eating natural, real food. They lose bodyfat. They get leaner. The obesity epidemic... SOLVED. But... What happens when you solve obesity? There are no more fat people!! Which means there's no more money to make!! So I've had a genius idea...

Instead of teaching people about nutrition and about eating natural, real food, why don't we con them into believing they should be eating low-fat, low-cal DIET FOOD. And not just any diet food... diet food sold to them by US!!

We can create points systems and food options that ensure they avoid natural, healthy foods (by ranking those foods high in points) and instead choose to buy our fake foods (by ranking those foods low in points).

For example, we could give an avocado 9 points, but our own brand of high fibre bar 2 points. People will stop buying natural avocados and start buying our sh*tty processed bars. They stay fat. We get RICH!! Money Money Money!!

We can sell them ready meals, bars, milkshakes, snacks... all given low values of made-up, bullsh*t points... to convince them they're buying something healthy!

The good news is that people don't have a f**king clue about nutrition. Not even the country's leading experts, so nobody will suspect a thing!! And here's the really funny bit...

These obese people are so f**king desperate and so f**king hooked on processed foods, we can even sell them diet CAKES and COOKIES, packed with sugar and artificial sweeteners, to keep them hooked on our products and plans!!

Just think about that for a second...

Selling fat people CAKE, while making them believe its HEALTHY, keeping them FAT, so they never stop dieting!! You couldn't make it up!!"


"Hang on a minute. You mean to say you're creating a whole industry designed to con obese people into eating junk food, by brainwashing them into thinking its healthy???"


"And you're going to give natural foods high points to make sure people don't eat them and get leaner, because if they get lean, you go out of business??"


"And you're going to sell them cakes and biscuits with low points, to convince them they're healthy, when really they're what's keeping them fat, so they never get lean, and live on your plans???"


"You evil, twisted, sick mother f**ker... what a f**king brilliant idea... I LOVE IT!! So what's your name???"

"My name is Weight Watchers, and yours?"

"My name is Slimming World, nice to meet you!!

Shall we go mess up millions of people?!"
