Pepsi Introduces Fat Blocking Soda
Pepsi Introduces Fat Blocking Soda - ABC News
So many things wrong with this, where to start?
Another article discussing it....
Basically you drink the chemical infused soda and it "blocks" the fat but still lets the lovely carbs on through to process. The article says why choose between a hamburger and pizza when you can choose both and drink one of these. That is a great idea!!! Double up your grain-carb filled processed entrees as long as you drink a chemically created drink that is infused with a potato based fiber that has been questionably synthesized!! Sounds legit right?
Lol Pepsi is scrambling... they're done. The cat's out of the bag, everyone knows soda is bad for you, and it's only a matter of time before their company is kaputz.
Health is Wealth!
Almost everyone now knows someone with diabetes, or someone who's doctor told them, "You need to watch your sugar!" I'm not saying the change will be overnight, but people are very motivated by what I'll call the I-don't-want-to-end-up-like-my-mom factor. The more people who see their parents/other family members struggle with diet-related illnesses, the more people will switch to a sensible diet.
We primal people just need to stick to our guns. We know we're right. We just live our lives, lead by example, quietly eat a salad and some coconut-oil-fried eggs while everyone else snacks on cookies--or, if they're "healthy", Kashi bars and omg-raw-vegan desserts..
Be optimistic, though! Things can only get better from here. GMOs are in the national conversation since the election, doesn't matter that the proposition didn't pass... People are wisening up. The SAD devotees will die off due to their own poor decisions, and those left behind will start making better ones.
A drink that blocks fat absorption? Let's see what is the brain made of? What happens when you deprive a brain of fat? Maybe Pepsi has stock in Alzheimer meds.
