Ok, I have a question (sorry if this has already been voiced). Often I hear the reason for using shakes is etc is time, the person is just so busy. Now if they are to busy to lose weight without the use of shakes, then aren't they going to be too busy to maintain their weight once they are off the shakes? One of the reasons (I believe) we are overweight is due to convenience foods, so swapping one for another just does not make sense in the long run.
Yep, Great logic! Makes sense to me!
And what advice to they give to people at goal? Or maybe they don't advise, they just aggressively market a dependence product.
I know first hand that their marketing (Including the show) has a big impact on obese people. In fact they are exploiting all the emotions and drama that exists for people and weight problems, but providing nothing new for a solution.
They can pretend it's inspiration, but we must never forget that it's 100% about profit. There is absolutely zero altruism on behalf on channel 10. It's a corporation, which itself it's completely unable to be altruistic.
