What is WRONG with This!?

Have any of you seen this little gem of a commercial on television lately(and I say 'gem' in a completely sarcastic tone dripping with disdain and a hint of disgust FYI)...

Okay, Seriously!?


I swear to god, I know some people are, shall I say 'challenged,' when it comes to eating healthy and knowing the difference between crap and real, edible food, and some people can't help the fact that they have to eat out once in awhile(that's a little more understandable), but this is taking things way too far.

The first time I saw this commercial, I was LIVID. I'm not sure what pisses me off more: The fact that these people are putting this garbage on television, or the fact that people actually believe it!

'I knew I had to be realistic with myself-I didn't want to cut out my fast food...'

Honestly, if that's how Americans feel about eating today, it's no wonder most of the country is walking around obese and riddled with disease.

I kind of thought it was hilarious.

Cause honestly? If someone buys that commercial?

They deserve the extra poundage they get.

It's just like the Subway commercials with that guy. It's all a marketing ploy to get customers into their restaurants.

I hate fast food. I haven't seen this comercial and cant see it now because I am at work. I am wondering what the difference is between thier diet and the "subway" diet.

This commercial is a real thorn in my side. I can't believe they have the balls to think that this could be a real diet solution. I hope people are not foolish enough to believe it. From someone who has struggled with weight my whole life, and who has lost 70 pounds over the past year, I fear that people will look at is as an easy way out. The only way I've been able to keep the weight off is with real whole foods and exercise. As soon as I give in to even one small meal of fast food, I put on a pound. Fast food is the worst thing we ever invented...thanks a lot McDonald Brothers....

I wonder if the bag has a map to the nearest hospital cause I'm sure someone who eats that food regularly is going to soon find themselves clutching their chest...and in need of medical attention!

She said, "These results are not typical." LOL!

I am obese and don't even eat fast food, so I cannot imagine how I would be if I did the Taco Bell diet. Good Lord!

There is a big problem today with eating healthy. It upsets me as a fat person, because it just helps to continue the stereotype that all fat people eat crap food.

Thank gosh I have lost 10 pounds and am not going to stop until I lose 90 more. :)
