      Just for the record, perhaps that specific Dietician was not the right person to use for the promotion, well in my humble opinion anyway.

      And .... the rest of the world is not laughing at America/Americans, we still loves ya.

        sort of like slowly the tides are turning away from crap food. first there was the gluten-free trend, then fat is okay for you, then eat the yolk, now it's 'if you're gonna eat candy, try to get the less junky one'
        Dark chocolate (70%+) and red wine have been a CW 'healthy thing' for a while now.

The woman could have lost 100 lbs--or she could be diligently following the ADA recommendations and wondering wtf is wrong with her 'genes.' Most of us on the forum have been there, trying our best on SAD and feeling horrid. If you haven't, you're lucky.
          This is a good point. I gained a lot of weight by following the advice of naturally thin, healthy-looking people. What worked for them did not work for me. Of course, what worked for them then may or may not still be working for them.

          So, off-topic for the picture of the dietician, but I choose people who have accomplished what I want to accomplish -- the person who has lost a lot of weight and kept it off, the person who has put autoimmune disease into remission and reclaimed health, the person who started out in debt and became rich without some unlikely lucky break, the non-athlete who became very fit, etc.

          It has been working for me.

            I think it's hilarious that someone will dismiss a thin person for being either genetically blessed or anorexic, but will promote an obviously obese dietician as potentially healthy. At the end of the day...these are moot points.

            This is NOT about an overweight person in the streets. It's about an overweight person being ADVERTISED as an authority on healthy foods. What is the most disturbing is what the advertisers' thought process was in putting such a person on the ad to make food look healthy. You don't advertise an Anti-Aging Cream with an older lady...you want to connect it with youth. It's all about association psychology. Likewise, it is mind boggling that someone would connect a food with obesity in order to promote the food's *image* as a health food.

            I love how every topic on obesity always brings a bunch of people previously or currently overweight to the yard, huffing and puffing and getting PERSONALLY offended over a commentary of a SOCIAL phenomena.

                  Was not referring to you. There's a reason I didn't quote you... I was referring to the general trend and a few other comments on this thread.


                  People always assume I am naturally this way (thinnish). I am not. I also didn't build 20lbs of muscle with good genes... I have gotten up at 5am every weekday morning for the past 3 weeks to workout before going to my law firm job. I have said no to every dessert that popped in front of me too. Those who whine about genes and "no time" can just suck it.

                    Haven't noticed anyone in this thread actually huffing and puffing so ease down TPQ, you're grinding on metal.

                    On topic: I would think this is EXACTLY the kind of advertising we'd like to see, overweight people advertising junk food! It's kinda in your face .. eat this to be overweight like me. Kind of like the Aussie cigarette packs showing pictures of diseased lungs.. smoke this if you want to shit on your own lungs. This advert is better then showing Olympic athletes advertising sugar loaded cereals. I'm putting this ad in the 'win' column
                    I don't believe there is one correct way of eating for everybody, and I don't believe there is one correct way of eating for a person through every stage of their life

                      Really? Hm...

                      I would have thought these people were like "oh noes! Fat joke!"...when the original post wasn't a fat diss at all.

                      If I had previously had any negative feelings toward the overweight populace, this forum has cured them completely. I've always been a sucker for the underdog, and the opinions and nastiness expressed at MDA toward fat people has made me love them. They're right up there with the oppressed cigarette smokers in my opinion.

                      Peace and love.

Granted a lot of people ARE... But some are not. Benefit of the doubt? . ... Nah, not with this crowd!

                      Maybe she has actually lost 100lbs already -on her way to MDA perfection?

                      It could happen , even to You!

                          A lot of people work hard and see a variety of results; it's different for everyone. People really should not assume anything about how hard people work. My friend Annie looks ripped and amazing; started lifting LAST FALL, is about 120lbs, squats over 200, deadlifts over 200, benches over 120.... and eats about like me. (80/20). 2 pretty different results via similar efforts.

                          She works hard to look like she does; I work hard to look like I do, but only one of us has a body that could be on the cover of Fitness, lol.

                          However, beyond the pursuit of fitness model bodies (not everyone can or should look like that), there are so many health professionals that are just very obese. That jump from three chins to looking healthy isn't really that hard. It doesn't require TQP level of dedication.

                          And just going to put this out there- but maybe given the level of obesity in this country, we simply should not have healthy choice signs in the candy aisle. If you are 300 lbs., the choice between sugar filled ghiradelli bars at 150 calories or a sugar filled twix at 150 calories is irrelevant.

                            At first I did think you were...but the snickers ad makes sense. Honestly though, I wouldn't really care about the "thin shaming" comments if they weren't spoken by the very same people who also are like "omg too many fat shaming people!" ...
