It's time to wake up and smell the "all natural drink powder"...

Monday, March 04, 2013

I saw this posted in a group on Facebook, and it really grated on my nerves: "P***** S*** is an all natural drink powder that you add to 6 ounces of water once a day. It tastes like Cherry Crystal Light. You can take an accelerator pill with it as well to speed up your weight loss and get more energy. No change of diet or exercise necessary. P***** will not let you eat as much as you did before...."

I'm sorry, but a change in diet and exercise IS necessary in order to lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle. If you're not interested in keeping it off and living a healthy lifestyle, then by all means, go ahead and ingest the stuff and let the chemical sh*! storm commence.

I mean seriously.

When are people going to realize that there is NO quick fix?? What is it going to take for people to stop falling for this stuff??? What is it going to take to get people to realize that it's all a ploy to keep you fat and broke? I guess because the government and other agencies say that it's safe, we should go ahead and take their word for it. Because they've been right about everything else all along. ;)

*rant over*

    I totally agree!
    Someone I know is peddling the first one you mentioned. I have to work really hard to not say anything. She is the type of person who tries EVERYTHING besides dedicating herself to eating right and working out.

    Amen sister! I am a pharmacist and I counsel a lot of people on over the counter stuff. I tell people not to waste their money (on many, MANY things that do not work) and they buy the junk anyway! Drives me crazy! emoticon
    I can only think of ONE person who took the expensive one that starts with an "A" that actually succeeded, and she made changes in her diet.
