Soap that reduces your fat levels? The world sure had some crazy fads back then. Wait, I think some things like that are probably still going around. Oh well.
Totally! Over here we have this belt that you put over your abdomen after applying a fat burning gel. Sure...
The first one is my favourite.
I mean, I guess it's a couple hundred less calories...
I remember "Ayds" from when I was a kid. Completely stupid and useless of course. But they were done in when AIDS arrived in the early 80s. I wonder if they're still on the market under another name?
I remember the commercials! And they might, I mean dexatrim is still out there!
Obesity Soap, I bet the sold a lot of that though. Women used to eat tape worms to stay thin. You could order them from a Sears Catalog and you could order heroin and a syringe as well from them. And we think the world is worse today!
Ahhhhh...the good old days! I think everyone always thinks their times are the worst, when in reality,humans have.always been pretty fucked up!
were they giving discounts if you buy both worms and heroin? :)
I hope so. You should get something more than just worms and heroin. Though you just might not care about the worms if you take the heroin! They needed a combo package!!
and you probably see worms even if they're not really there when you take some heroin..... though I wouldn't really know, off course.... I'm shocked you would even think I would... :)
Bile beans and obesity soap - AWESOME! I'd like to place an order please... :) So funny. And my mom used to buy those AYDS things, my brothers and sisters thought they were candy and ate some.. Once.. They were awful.
Bile beans make me think if the time, many many moons ago, that I was so drunk I threw up bile. Bitter ...
Excellent pics they made me chuckle! I need to take a little notice of some of them though???
I know...me too!!
I always think chemical shit storm when I see those words. Only once have I been wrong. It was whole wheat, but to make it pretty sounding they said "low fat" instead.
I dont think some people get enough.fat in their diets...they forget that our bodies need it!
Appetite suppressant candy??? Is that for real???
it is, and it actually works, here in my country we have a factory which makes chocolate for reducing weight :)
The picture above for "AYDS" was sold in the States in the late 70's early 80's and it looked revolting in the commercials!And Dez...have you tried that weight reduction chocolate? I just like to have a small piece of dark chocolate and call it a day!
By the way...here's a link to a video of one of the commercials!http://youtu.be/WTitP5_yDUU
I actually have since the owner of the company came to English lessons in my school, but they were rather weird tasting. They do help though. And they packed in some luxurious wraps so your mind tricks you that you are eating something divine :)
My favorite is Coca-Cola's "Vitamin Water" which is advertised as a health drink but is LESS healthy than Coke. It's apparently horribly unhealthy... But there ARE vitamins added!
Or did you ever see the Diet Coke with Vitamins?? Wow. Just wow.
when I see pictures with kittens in fridges I always wonder if those people buy new fridges after discovering their cats in them, or they just act like nothing happened..I've just made a heart background for my blog too, for the month of love !
I wonder...I did have a kitten jump in the fridge once. She was very sneaky. A VERY short time later I heard crying. I followed the sound to the fridge and there she was! Poor thing....I wrapped her in blankets until she was all warmed up! So you never know...but I am gonna go with most of them are staged. MOST of them...
yes, but did you buy a new fridge after that or scrubbed the old one with tones of detergent, because I couldn't possibly take food from a place where a cat's bum has been previously.... I don't even like to eat at houses of people who have animals in their houses.
I think I could successfully stick to the Gin & Tonic diet, hehe!!
yeah, I think I'll go for the gin & tonic diet, too, that way I won't even think about eating :)
