I recently stumbled across this video. It's a tough watch, but *this* epitomizes ALL that is wrong with the low carb weight loss industry. For starters, diet really is religion for these folks as this get-together, marketing stunt for Dr. Eric Westman's HEAL Clinics/care, was held in a church. There was prayer, there were references to God, and a collection, and paying it forward. If you can't stomach too much of it (I don't blame you), I'll list a few time-stamps. If anyone cares to give time stamps for various gems and ridiculous claims, please do so in comments!
11:35 Prayer ... 17:25 Melanie Miller takes the stage ... 17:33 Introduces Dr. Mark Cucuzzella ... 20:36 Dr. Mark speaks, thanks Jimmy Moore, talks about the movement, calls obese people in audience paradoxes! ... 23:30 Dr. Mark shares analogy that losing weight is like holding a beachball under water, don't try to hold it too far down! ... 30:00 Success Story parade up on stage ... 43:37 Melanie introduces Jimmy Moore -- he's blessing us! ... 44:23 Jimmy gets on stage to do his spiel ... 1:19:00 Melanie talks about HEAL (This is worth listening to if you can to get the full effect of an obese woman yelling at the audience to take control of their health and lives) ... 1:20:00 talks about sugar being the same as opioids for pain!!!! ... 1:25:12 Melanie Miller "You gotta be honest with yourself".
