I... would rather be fat! [Apr. 20th, 2006|04:09 pm]

A bold weight-loss program of the Life of Life Healing Spa in Hong Kong involves actually setting fire briefly to the parts of the body holding the most fat, according to a December dispatch in London's Daily Telegraph. According to owner Karen Chu, the fire follows an energy flow "reading," full-body exfoliation, high-pressure hose spray, and herb-and-potion and alcohol rub-downs (but wet towels and a fire extinguisher are at the ready in case of problems). Chu said about 100 clients have undergone the treatment, with no complications, and the ones interviewed by the Daily Telegraph reporter praised the service. Chu said the treatment is based on traditional Chinese medicine, but a Hong Kong doctor interviewed by Agence France-Presse said, "I have never heard of such a thing."

You think so? I'm not sure I agree. I've never tried weight watchers but I've seen it work for friends. Ridiculously expensive though.

I'm joshin' ya. Weight Watchers seems to work well for a lot of people. Never tried it, but I'm sure by the time I hit twenty-five my metabolism will slowly crumble and die and I'll be forced into doing the rediculous calorie/fat ratio thingy, or whatever they do.
Mmm, something to look forward to.
