This is entertaining reading.

When it comes to health and fitness, the attitude of most people is a pastiche of catchy sound bites and sales pitches. There's a reason late night TV has been pedalling a variety of genuinely useless contraptions for, what, 30 years? More? And they keep selling. Because people keep buying them. Not just the piece of shit ab-swing (or whatever) but the mentality as well;
"Losing weight/building muscle is easy... with this new 'system'."

Garbage.

Cross that with the misinformation swirling around about fad diets, 'Caveman' this and 'Atkins' that, 48 hour detoxes and fat blasters...

Snake oil.

The bottom line is; people are lazy. As long as the overwhelming consensus is that the ideal body can be achieved without effort, people will continue to be lazy... lazier. The fat get fatter, which makes everything harder.

So they buy the next product to guarantee easy results.

Ad nausea.
