Two groups consumed the same amount of calories. The overweight-obese group were found to eat less plant based foods (translated to mean overweight-obese individuals were consuming more processed foods, junk food, and sugars).
“Consumers should stick with what we have known for decades and eat fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables,” – Susanne Talcott
Scarlett Johansson has every right to be mad about the rumors that she’s lost 14 pounds for her role in Iron Man 2. In her recent press photos, she does not need to lose an ounce of weight. Imagine her losing 14 lbs would be disastrous for her frame and body.
Kudos to her for setting the facts straight. No number on a weight scale ever defines who you are. There are no weight numbers for feeling fit, toned, healthy and comfortable in your own skin.
The new “Drive Thru Diet” tag line from Taco Bell deserves a good laugh. It is always a bit of a stretch to add the word diet to any food menu, or food items unless the target audience is really gullible. Or if and only if the food items have a negative calories count.
Thank goodness a disclaimer is visibility written on every page of the website. “Drive-Thru-Diet® is not a weight-loss program.”
It would be acceptable if they had called it “Drive Thru – Low Calories Menu” and let the customers choose instead of being subjected to this type of brainwashing.
