Forget about diet and exercise


This is my week to pick on the local medical community. Honestly, this one makes Turkey Neck look good. I must admit I absolutely LOVE the clip art. 

When I was growing up there was a doctor that people used to go to for ‘diet drops’. I am pretty sure it was liquid speed and he surely behaved more like a drug dealer than a doc. Basically if you had the cash he gave you the scrip. Or maybe he was dispensing, come to think of it. Nonetheless his operation was eventually busted. 

So here we are in the year 2009 and this guy is placing an ad like this in small town local newspapers. And this is ok because…?

I jumped over to his website and the language is really frightening. How about this: “Since we are able to get these medications from the manufacturers directly and in large quanities, we are able to pass the savings to our patients”, said Dr. Mostafa. “Our Weigh loss (yes, there was a typo) program is easy, safe and now affordable.”

Wow, the whole damn county should be thin with this kind of offer!

Safe? Phendimetrazine. Addictive much?

Oh right. Look Your Best.

    interesting tid-bit . . . he might as well have been selling amphetamine, diet pill can be very dangerous . . . nice post

  2. We are the laziest society EVER! We figure that just by WATCHING Survivor or The Biggest Loser, we’ve done enough exercise for the day. It’s all about instant gratification. “I know I’ve been gaining this weight over the course of the past five years, but I want it gone by tomorrow!” Great post!
