I agree that people who are pushing a weight loss program should be able to heal themselves. I did some market research on this a while back among hypnotists, many of whom who are over weight (kind of like the public) to find out what sort of "expert" they would trust for help.
But I would disagree that they have nothing useful to add to the discussion.
People should try more to look past the exterior and fully embrace the meaningful.
If by looking at something and not liking what you see then proceeding to not taking something that is good to heart, I feel is flawed.
For me, if I see someone who is ripped and physically fit, I would ask them primarily about fitness, not about health and not about nutrition yet. I would ask them about the latter only after I learned more about them and their habits.
I am not religious, but that doesn't mean there is nothing good that I can't learn from a certain religion.
Oh and a good hairdresser's skill is most likely measured on the quality hairstyle of his/her clients. If a hairdresser has awesome personal hair, she most likely goes to another awesomely skilled hairdresser.
When you need diet advice you should go to skinny people, for exercise advice you should go to a 20-something male who has never been out of shape, when you need surgery you should go to someone who has had breast augmentation. Their success is clear evidence they know how to help you attain your goals.
The problem is that people who do real things these days end up in offices, labs, and other controlled environments, working long sedentary days, not getting the exercise they should be getting. To be an expert requires constant study (which means sitting still and reading), constant research (which involves more sitting still and working), and then if they want to write a book that means even more time writing (yet more sitting). They work indoors, and if they work with experiments or have patients they can't take long vacations. As a result, they are ugly. Sorry, it's true. Their work, their chosen lifestyle, makes them ugly. So when you get your advice, the last group you want to consult is experts. Instead you should trust 20-somethings with enough money to hire ghost writers. They are beautiful, and therefore credible, and you would have to be crazy to look beyond that.
I still think a hairdresser should have their hair done. I don't care it if is multi-colored as long as it is done in whatever style they are wearing it. I feel like it shows pride - that's all.
my doctor is short, chunky, wears low cut blouses, and tells funny off-color stories
she's also diligent, caring, will research how to best help you in her off time, will try her best to make you at ease and is protective of her nurses when someone is being unruly
the only thing i disagree with is her choice of diet
judge a book by its cover all you want, i'll put my body and health in the hands of someone who knows what they're doing
yeah you are
if you think about it, any box could have vibrators in it
Doctors smoke, and doctors need to lose weight. The fact that they have not made these changes is mostly a reflection of how hard it is to accomplish those things. And realistically, all doctors don't have the time needed to acquire the expertise they need, given that they too are being bombarded by misinformation and disinformation by supposed experts.
It's a bit like a catholic priest that I know, personally he is an atheist, but he want people to confess their sins and live a christian life...
