only if enough people hear about it

"Unfortunately, it cannot be fried."

Maybe that's why it works so well, the people who use it stop eating so much fried food.

Anyways, this may help with obesity, but I can't imagine that people who eat food like this "dressings, dips, sauces, baked goods, processed meats, snack foods, cookies, pies and other foods." would be very healthy even with the fat free powder/gel.

No. I probably wouldn't eat it. Sounds like it tastes nasty.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/24/07 - 10:14:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think we can solve obesity by cutting back on fatty foods, and exercising.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/24/07 - 10:25:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I don't think it'll help.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/24/07 - 11:04:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, the problem is just too out of control.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 1/25/07 - 3:42:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, people need to stop depending on pills and magical powders to solve their problems.

what exactly does it do? do u add it for the heck of it?
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 4/21/07 - 2:16:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Probably not. People are often busy and short of time and will just grab what's nearby, whether its fast food or a frozen dinner.

Another quick fix to something which really should be prevented by healthy food and exercise.
14 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 12/1/07 - 6:57:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think it would work. I think what would work is that people should be able to find the motivation to start a healthy diet that a doctor put together and join a gym. Plus as long as there are fast food places like McDonald's etc where people buy food more often than actually cook it themselves, I doubt the obesity rate will go down.

It's amazing how FOOD is always the answer to weight loss. I'm guessing healthy food and more activity is pretty much the only long-term, effective way to be healthy.
