Celebrity idolatry is what I call it.

I admit I have a few celebrities that I admire and love. But to use a product based on a celebrity’s results is pure insanity. Did you know that Kirstie Alley is the new spokesperson for Jenny Craig? Sure she look gorgeous today, as she has just lost 50 pounds (again.) That girl is on a permanent roller coaster. Because as soon as she stops eating the Jenny Craig diet she will gain it back. Why?


She is not getting to the root of the problem. Her lifestyle.  OH  and here’s another one that I absolutely hate. The one where the celebrity, lately it’s the Kardashians on every magazine stand, loses 50 -100 pounds. (Some people are really not meant to be  thin)

Well consider this, these celebrities are for the most part movie stars who get paid millions to lose weight or gain weight or put on muscles or become emaciated.

Matt Damon lost 40 pounds in his role as a herion addict on Courage under Fire. He almost died and his metabolism was messed up for years after.

It is their job to do so. I think if it was mine and I had personal trainers and people looking after me daily, I could do it too. Especially if there was 6-7 figures at the end of the line.

Think about this when you see a celebrity promoting any diet program or supplement. 

These “diets” that the celebrities are promoting, Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers etc. may in fact be well balanced and you may lose weight on them without endangering your health. However, neither of them reflect a natural process of eating when you are hungry and only eating enough to satisfy, which is naturally in sync with your bodies rhythm and needs. The weight watchers diet has you eating constantly. Sooner or later you start adding foods and keep on eating in this manner, the weight will and does come back. The yo yo or roller-coaster effect on your body is just as damaging as what Matt Damon did to his body and  metabolism. There is only one way to lose, and it is the underlying factor beneath all weight loss and fitness programs.
