Blogger Cleverly Exposes Before and After Transformations in Just 5 Hours
An eating champion and blogger demonstrates how fitness and diet ads are orchestrated to fool the gullible public with shocking before and after transformations. In a convincing Youtube video, he shows some deceptive tactics that big business and advertisers use to markedly change a physique from flab to fit in just 5 hours.
Furious Pete is a blogger and eating champion whose website furiouspete.com is full of ironically tasteless videos on how to gorge yourself senseless on food. However, what he has done very cleverly is show how to make the miraculous transformation, without even having to deprive yourself of your favourite foods - in fact, you can eat potato chips and drink two litres of cola and still achieve the look. That's not something that anybody should responsibly do with their diet if they are interested in a healthy or buffed body, but the he makes a very good point using junk food as the fuel for the "before" picture.
Worth $60billion-a-year in America, the dieting industry is big business and many advertisements feature before and after shots to show you just how effective the product is. These ads prey on the overweight and obese who will try anything to achieve that "look" that many feel is reserved for those with blessed genetics. After shots are enhanced even further with graphics applications such as Photoshop as Furious Pete points out in the video.
Men and women with protruding, flabby stomachs and undefined arms and abs are often compared with the after shot of rippling six packs, bulging biceps and toned torsos.
He says: "Most of the time it's hard to believe that a supplement or training programme can make you look like this."
The next time you see one of these ads, save your money and think about how easily it can easily be developed from start to finish in just 5 hours.
