Who was debating political leanings? I never said anything political. I thought it was ironic that media is calling something overproduced and dramatic to the point of being pretty much false. In other words, pot, meet kettle. That goes for all media.

Relax, take a breath.

Why even come into this thread? I don't think anyone here thinks the food pics or the transformation pics are real, but I thought it was interesting seeing exactly how easy it is to do, and thought others would, too. That was the only point of the thread. Since it's a fitness/health board, not a debate-the-political-leanings-of-a-news-source thread.

At least we can be happy that we are transforming for real. So our pictures will show the truth.

No problem, any time. Next up we'll explore how the food you buy doesn't look like it does in the commercials. (sarcasm smiley)

Well, Bill, HuffPo isn't the bastion of unbiased news and fair reporting that Fox News is, but they'll continue to muddle on..... (I tried to find a sarcasm font or smiley, but we don't seem to have one).

But thank you for your opinion, which has exactly nothing to do with the point of the post.

Shocking, isn't it? I think my first tip off was "how did they find the same bathing suit in a smaller size 3 months later, and it ties in the same place?" But realizing that these transformations are usually done in an hour, with lighting, posture, expression tricks? Crazy.

I've previously seen an article where the guy showed the same thing, but did it in the opposite direction. His muscular good-looking "after" picture was actually taken first, and then he had a cheeseburger/beer party to add some bloat, and the next day he took his "before" picture.

Do something everyday that your future self will thank you for.

"There is no doubt that we live in a world of manipulation, false promises and exaggerated claims."

That alone coming from the Huffington Post caused me to lose my mouthful of water.

I found this fascinating. I knew that the transformation photos you see in ads for various diet and exercise programs were manipulated, but I never realized it was just this easy! I thought it took a little more work than this.A real eye-opener.
