D.I.E.T. versus W.E.I.G.H.T

January 10, 2011 , , , , , ,

The widening waist lines, increasing body weight, shrinking clothes – don’t we all hate those. I found an universal newsreel clip from the early 40s about exercise machines and that was my inspiration for this post.

The documentaries – “Super Skinny Me” and “10 things you need to know about losing weight” are kinda like a refresher course on good/bad dieting and weight loss practices. It might be super handy as folks try hard to shed those extra pounds.


A documentary were two British journalist, Louise Burke and Katie Spicer participate in an extreme weight loss experiment to drop five dress sizes in five weeks. The film is obviously anti-such dieting practices and hence is tilted strongly towards the awful effects kinda like the documentary “Super Size me”. What stuck with me was the fact that the most pronounced danger of such sudden weight loss practice, physically, is cardiac arrest and mentally, is severe depression. It was also funny listening to the Brits talking about weight lose in stones.

10 things you need to know about losing weight.

In this documentary medical journalist Michael Mosley investigates the latest scientific breakthroughs in slimming and uncovers ten of the simplest ways you can shed your pounds without taking extremes measures as suggested in the documentary “Super Skinny Me”. Michael like most of us is interested in shedding pounds without pain and exercise. So he looks at options such as losing weight when you sleep and wants to know about foods that makes him fuller and keeps you full for long. But what about those of us who believe they eat right, and exercise and feel their metabolism is the problem it is just too darn slow…the film talks about that as well.

Hope these films warn, inspire or give you ideas on safe weight loss methods. Good Luck!
