Gee, that didn’t take long.

I posted another installment in the Fantasy of Being Thin (TM) series, which was simply a referral to Big Fat Delicious, and already, already I have what looks to be a stealth concern troll. The text of the comment would have fooled me, perhaps, if I weren’t in the habit of checking email addresses and linked websites for comments in the moderation queue.

The comment ran as follows:

Which diets work for the long term. No matter how hard I try and find one that isnt a scam I cant.

Now, let’s set aside for a moment the fact that the author name was “weight loss”, the email info AT somedietwebsite* DOT com, and the link to that self-same diet website. The question itself (despite its lack of requisite punctuation) is worthy of addressing. Your answer, O Anonymous And Trollish Person:


Diets. Don’t. Work.

No matter what you call them.

*yeah, I’m not even giving them traffic with a putting the real website name in this post.
