“Tapeworms, soap, and HCG oh my!”
Liz Garrett joins me today via Skype to have a little Friday heath and fitness podcast fun. Both of us have been scouring our sources this week in search of the wildest, most bizarre, and even dangerous weight loss strategies, some dating back to the 1800s, and several still in use even today. Look forward to an upbeat episode! Plan to be both shocked and confused that anyone would resort to the insanity of the methods reviewed.
We all agree that weight loss is challenging. In fact, I believe we are closer than ever before to forgetting about weight loss as a measure of improved health. Those of us that have traveled along the weight loss yo-yo continuum, have at one time or another, resorted to the extremes. Today, we highlight the extent of what people are willing to do, sometimes out of ignorance, other times out of desperation.
We hope you love our episode today! For a less dramatic approach to weight-management, check out our previous article, “The Yeti Path To Weight Loss.”
