The other day I was watching the movie, “The Invention Of Lying,” when a thought struck me, “If there was no lying then there would be no diet and supplement industry.” Just imagine – no ephedra commercials, no super abs infomercials, no miracle cleanse. Although I do think that I would miss the rear views on the Brazil Butt Lift infomercials.

 So what would this no lying world be like? If you wanted to get healthier or lose weight you’d follow a diet that gave you the proper calories and nutrition from eating real, wholesome food, and perform a workout routine doing functional, healthy exercises. HydroxyCut, with its preposterous claim that by taking it you can lose weight without diet or exercise, wouldn’t exist. We’d all be healthier, happier and richer. The multi-billlion dollar diet, exercise and supplement industry would be much smaller.

 We wouldn’t be drinking Gatorade or PowerAde to hydrate and increase our performance. Unless you’re an athlete who works out for hours a day and sweats out a ton of liquids plain old water will work just fine. 

 All of the gadgets, potions, pills, and devices that promise you that you’ll lose weight, get fit and healthy, or become a star wouldn’t exist. We’d all be healthier, happier, and maybe just all-round better people. Or so I would hope.
