What are we thinking? Collectively we've lost our minds. Turn on TV. You see it everywhere. A pill that burns fat. A shake that increases metabolism. A chair that works abs. A cookie that burns calories. A drink that causes you to lose 10 pounds in 2 hours. Ice Cream that leaps from the carton and puts you through a complete low impact workout. M & M's that can double as medicine balls. Hamburger barbells.
These products are everywhere - BECAUSE IT'S JANUARY. These companies know you resolved to drop some weight a couple of days ago. Their marketing campaigns are underway to cash in. And they will. We will spend millions and millions on this stuff. Videos, juicers, walkers, giant things with long rubber straps. Straps you attach to the bed - or the door - or the fridge - and remember - it stores away conveniently under a bed. Eat what you want and exercise just minutes a day and you can look like that fruitbasket 42 year old with the incredible abs. I want to look like that Tony Little guy with the long hair. All muscle - and the worst hair on television. I want a Gazelle. I want to take the super pill - and ride the super bike - drinking the super drink - while eating the calorie free pizza. I want to look in a mirror in just 8 weeks and look like Christie Brinkley. I won't of course, and neither will you - unless we stop EATING SO DAMN MUCH!
