This Parody Shows What It Would Look Like If Diet Ads Told The Truth

Laugh through the pain.


The weight loss industry likes to pretend it's possible and healthy for anyone and everyone to be thin. But, as movements like Health At Every Size and human beings with genetically diverse body types show, this is not the case.

Our new video, "If Diet Ads Told The Truth," reveals what weight loss commercials would look like if they cut the bullshit, and actually advertised restrictive eating's harmful effects on the body and mind.

The only thing this new diet sensation can guarantee is that it will make you miserable. Enjoy!
