      I wonder why News.com.au didn't mention it was Jenny Craig. Interesting.

      Here is the original article

      An Open Apology to All of My Weight Loss Clients - Your Fairy Angel

      'I'm sorry I put you on a 1,200 calorie diet': Former Jenny Craig consultant publicly apologizes for 'wronging' her clients with 'unhealthy' advice | Mail Online

        A friend posted that on Facebook and a girl commented on her struggles to lose weight. She had joined a gym and started lifting and lost inches but quit as she was not losing weight. It made me so fucking sad. I posted a link to Nia Shanks..... I hope she looks at it because she is a victim of bad advice.

        The sad thing is that on Jenny Craig, the weight lost is not fat alone, but muscle, bone mass and water.

          I saw this last week and they didn't mention Jenny Craig either. Not anywhere. Weird.

            While I don't approve per se of any pre-packaged weight loss program, I can see how it would help take away decision making thereby putting the tiger in the closet. But at some point, unless one wants to live on pre-packaged foods the rest of one's life, you have to learn to make intelligent decisions about real food.

            The apology sounds disingenuous to me. Sort of like, "I'm sorry I taught you all that Bible stuff because now I've seen the light and Buddhism is the one true way."

            There's nothing wrong with 1200 calories a day. For some small and/or relatively inactive women, it's a fine amount of food. I would temper that with the occasional "feast" of 1600-1800 calories only because the body is so adaptive that just about any regimen with no change will lead to head-screwing, long-lasting plateaus.

            Anyway, just like many people around here wouldn't take weight loss advice from a fat person, I rarely listen to weight loss advice from someone who's never had to lose weight. So, imo anyone getting sucked into a "pay to lose" scheme pretty much gets what they deserve.

            Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
