FitFriday: 'Skinny Can' Diet Pepsi angers eating disorder activists

It's all about liquid diets this week.  A new Pepsi can is taking heat and a diet memoir by a pop star's boyfriend about losing 40 pounds while drinking every day is causing a stir. Has the dieting message gone too far?  Comment below.

Skinny can causes fat debate

Diet soda is getting a bad rap this week in health headlines.

But, there’s a different kind of controversy about the new Diet Pepsi, marketed in a slender, cylindrical can, which will make its debut at New York's Mercedes-Benz Fall Fashion Week, which began Thursday

This venue is “rife with eating disorders” said the National Eating Disorders association in a press release.

Pepsi refers to its new Skinny Can can as “taller,” “attractive,” and “stylish.”

“PepsiCo’s comments are both thoughtless and irresponsible,” said Lynn Grefe, the association’s president. “Their shameful misdirection is further exemplified by tying the launch of this offensive marketing campaign to Fashion Week, where women’s body types are atypical at best … and unhealthy as to be fatal at worst.”

Is its campaign offensive to you?

The Drunk Diet

Lady Gaga’s boyfriend has landed a dieting book deal, according to the New York Post. Lüc Carl will write about how he lost 40 pounds while drinking every day, based on his blog The Drunk Diet.

Don’t expect a how-to book, Carl, a bar owner, warns on his blog.

“After reading countless books and being told time after time that it’s impossible to lose weight while drinking alcohol heavily, Lüc Carl decided to take matters into his own hands. Join him on his journey to lose 40 pounds, without giving up his principles of being a hard drinking party maker,” according to his blog.

Exercise improves overweight kids’ math skills

Overweight children put on regular physical activity improved their math scores, according to a study published in Health Psychology.

A group of 171 overweight, sedentary kids were split into activity and non-activity groups.  Those who began to exercise scored higher on cognitive tests that measured planning and academic skills such as math and reading.

The magnetic resonance imaging also showed that the kids who exercised had increased brain activity in the area of the brain associated with complex thinking and decision making.

The more they exercised, the better the result, researchers at Georgia Health Sciences University found. The kids’ intelligence scores increased an average 3.8 points in those exercising 40 minutes per day after school for three months.

    Generally, East and South East Asia have been praised for their approach to handling the pandemic and getting it under control more successfully than the rest of the world. Many people put this down to their previous experience with the SARS outbreak between 2002 and 2004. However, consistent advice, swift action and stricter government intervention also played a role. Whatever the reason, experts predict that the many Asian countries who were able to return to normal more quickly will have a financial advantage over the parts of the world that were not.The fate of the economy in 2021 will also determine the long-term economic outlook. Right now, we will argue that the optimistic scenario seems more likely, but a negative reversal is also into play. Will Europe’s Next Generation EU and Biden’s economic policies succeed in stabilizing the global economy and set the world on track for a brighter and more sustainable future? Will Asian economies gain ground in trade and technological innovation and set the foundations to become the dominant forces in the global scene? https://financer.com/ To analyze the trends of 2021, we need to take a look back at the year 2020 and where we are starting from. Black swan events, such as the Coronavirus pandemic affected every country on the globe. However, that doesn’t mean we’re all starting the new financial year in the same boat. In the following graph, you can see the GDP growth and unemployment rates of the top 10 GDP countries in the world.
