Weight Watchers slogan for their new men’s product: “Eat like a man. Not like a rabbit.”
I saw this on the Washington Post website, next to a story about Michelle Obama’s initiative to stop childhood obesity. There was a picture of a big, manly grilled steak in the ad. So, on the one hand the First Lady is telling us to eat healthy and set a better example for our kids. On the other hand, the supposed weight loss experts are telling us we need a slab of red meat to feel manly. Isn’t the first lady growing rabbit food in her White House vegetable garden? Isn’t the meat part of the problem?
