Help needed.

Hello,

Iím currently doing a school project about fitness and nutrition and I was wondering if you might be able to help me out. I would really like to know about your thoughts about current fitness or nutrition products.

Is there anything that really bothers you about current products, or is there a product you would love to have that doesnít exist? I would love to hear from you!

Thank you very much,

Kathryn

Re: Help needed.

What really bothers me is about fast food, how horrible it is for you and how much it increases diseases and obesity. Also company's that add growth hormone into our food to make the animal grow faster, with side effects to us

Re: Help needed.

To answer frankly, everything about weight loss "products" bother me. No company in it's right mind is going to sell somebody a product which will induce an action (weight loss) that will cause the consumer to stop buying the product (loss of revenue), i.e. people stop "dieting" when they lose all the weight they want. We know that this is the reason the weight comes back on, because after people lose weight they discontinue just being plain healthy. Because this is the case, it's crazy for companies to manufacture a usefull product that will only be used for a short time.

Large scale companies don't care what happens to the consumer, it may be sad, but it's true. They only care about making profits and the way to do that is sell product. They sell more if they can get the consumer addicted to it. I've heard (I don't know the source and I don't know it I'm even re-iterating it correctly) that manufacturers now put things in our processed foods to make us more hungry and more addicted to their product. It makes sense to me, from a profit-hungry exec position. But as a consumer, I've stay away from all proccessed foods as much as possible, and I've been losing weight.

Hope this helps, if you want more, I've got plenty of anger left for large-scale companies
