OK, I'm Fat - So What?

A recent survey revealed that Americans are less interested in weight loss than has been the case in the recent past. We are, it is reported, becoming more accepting of both our and other people's excess pounds.

Look for "Diet Program" information on the Web and the search engines will return over 7 million matches. Check how many surfers look for that information daily and fewer than 200,000 are shown. Doesn't that suggest that there are far more folks out there trying to tell us how to lose than there are those of us who are interested in giving weight loss one more try?

What does that say about the future? Will ever-heavier bodies lead to sluggish minds? Diet and exercise have been proven every bit as effective as medication on depression and similar mood disorders. Yet we prefer to skip the daily effort of healthy eating and physical exertion and pop a pill instead. No wonder health care costs continue to increase.

We have tamed the rivers, harnessed the wind, and hurled man into space only to witness our great civilization smother itself in self-generated blubber.

8-WEEK Permanent weight loss programme

A UK charity is looking for people who can take part in a short market study for a product range that is clinically proven to achieve long-term weight loss in eight-out-ten people. This product is currently being investigated as a possible permanent solution to unhealthy weight gain.

A simple questionnaire will be emailed to 1,000 people, some of which will be given the opportunity to try the products free of charge as part of the study.

The weight loss programme is totally independent from diets, slimming clubs, or medicines; and has already been adopted by the NHS in the north of England who have successfully treated many of their patients over the last two years.

Once the study is finished, the charity will release its range to the general public.

The questionnaire should take less than 5 minutes to finish and, since your personal details are not required, it is completely anonymous.

Please only apply if you have tried conventional diets or exercise regimes with limited results, or if you have an issue with your weight.

Please register your interest by contacting:

Sam Barona

Only the first 1,000 emails will be replied to. If you dont receive a reply email within 24 hours of sending it, please accept our thanks for expressing your interest.

Your help can really make a difference to millions of people!
