Bloomberg Business says "Americans spend $40 billion a year on weight-loss programs and products." Rebecca Reisner wrote, " Most offensive are alleged fitness experts who issue such advice as: “Keep your nose out of carrots, bunny. They’re full of sugar.

It seems like the diet industry is a system doomed to failure.

Instead of chasing a quick fix into the wind, we need to pursue healthier lifestyles.
