Tapeworm Weight Loss…Really?

I am constantly amazed by the lengths that some people will go to in the quest of dropping excess kilograms – honestly, I think it’s more of a strange fascination.  It’s hard to believe that people are willing to compromise their health and dignity to lose weight – you may remember this one from last year:   https://loseweightwithsue.wordpress.com/2012/04/17/nasal-tube-dieting-you-have-got-to-be-kidding-me/

Anyway, nasal feeding seems pretty tame compared to the latest weight loss fad I have read about – and that is ingesting a tapeworm!  Seriously, a woman in the USA recently ordered a tapeworm from the internet and swallowed it.  The reason behind this practice is that the tapeworm would grow in her gut and ‘eat’ the calories she is consuming, therefore depriving her body of energy, vitamins and minerals while apparently losing weight.  The particular type of tapeworm she ingested can grow up to 20 metres long and can cause all kinds of health issues including malnourishment and, occasionally, death.  Read more about it here:    http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/249746-iowa-tapeworm-diet-woman-eats-parasite-to-lose-weight/

How would you like this little critter living in your gut?  GROSS!

Honestly this madness has to stop.  It’s sad to see that those people searching for a ‘quick fix’ solution to losing weight are willing to try anything, without thinking about the long-term effect on their health (and dignity).  So don’t fall for the latest diet fad:  remember it took you a long time to put on your extra weight so it won’t go away overnight!    

The REAL solution to permanent weight loss is a program that is NOT risky nor will compromise your health.  That’s right – in order to lose weight safely, you need to eat everyday, normal food with professional guidance, support and health coaching along the way.  This is exactly what The Natural Way weight loss program can do!  We have been helping Australian’s lose weight for over 30 years without the gimmicks:  and we have great long term weight loss results as our clients learn not only how to lose weight but what to do to keep it off.    

To find out more about our holistic weight loss program (that is a lifestyle NOT a diet), call your nearest clinic on 1300 SLIMMER (1300 754663) and make a FREE appointment to find out more.
