27. The 10 questions I always ask about weight lost matters. – Part 8

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by aaremoval on 07-07-2009

Have you ever asked yourself?

8. Why did Jacelyn Tay host a show or wrote a book to teach people how to lose weight? Was she ever fat? And why was there a report that she fainted because she skipped her meal? And did she lose her weight because she did what she wrote in her book, skipped meals or because she went to Jean Yip?

Sorry I have to say again and again that I raised this question also quite sometime back. But coincidentally, there was a talk show featuring Jacelyn Tay as a guest and they mentioned that she is currently in the business in health care and weight loss. So, this actually answered to part of my question why she came out with a book a few years back, teaching people how to lose weight. No doubt she is definitely a better person to do this business, if compared to me. Who will want to pay someone who is still overweight for a weight loss session? Although I have experience in losing a considerably great amount of weight, I think about 20 kgs, but, at the moment, I am still about 10 kgs overweight. And who will want to pay me to learn weight loss lesson from me? Especially if you may be only 5 kgs overweight. But, my big question is, has she ever been overweight? 2 to 3 kgs, may be. And during her teenage years, with some baby fats, may be. But so overweight that she can write a book about it, I really wonder. To me, her writing such a book is like someone writing a book on cancer while he or she is neither a doctor, nor a cancer cells carrier. If someone who’s mother or father got cancer and wrote a book about cancer, will you be convinced? I will definitely have awful lots of doubts, because the feeling is not the same, not even when you are a doctor who treats cancer. Yes, you may say that you are a doctor who faces cancer patients every day and can feel their pain, but will you fully feel it? Will you feel the fear? Will you lose your appetite and start to hate everyone around you? No right? The feeling can’t be the same. Doctors, are trained to be not so emotional when come to facing the matter of death, and although yes, they are still human and probably still feel sad if their patients died, but that will probably just for a few days. I once heard a story that there was this very optimistic guy who had a gun shot from a robbery, just before getting the anaesthesia, told the surgeons if they can operate him as if he is alive. Can you get what he meant? Ever watch on TV while operating, the surgeons will be so cool, or cold, that to them it is just like fixing a car, so even if the operations failed and the patients dies, the doctor will just shake his head and tell the family members: “ we have tried our best.” The scene not shown on TV is that after that, he probably quickly goes to the canteen to have his lunch. Okay, I know I am digressing; I am just trying to elaborate and compare the feeling of a fat person talking about weight loss versus a never been fat person. How can be the same?

Firstly, for Jacelyn, I wonder if she has ever been fat? Secondly, I read a partial of her book in Popular Book Store, and I think her way of dieting is the low calorie, low carbo and low every thing diet. And yes, I agree you will probably lose some weight if you follow through her book, this is provided you can stand the hunger. Low calorie, low everything, sure to lose weight if you can endure, at least until your metabolism is sabotage. And not to mention that there was once a report not too long after she came out with her weight loss book, that she fainted because she was too hungry. Pardon me if I am too harsh, but I think that’s a diet for catwalk models. And I like to say; she is successful in that having really a model’s figure. I saw her in person before, and she is really, really thin. She is so thin that on first look, she is like anorexic. And another amusing thing to me is, that she endorsed for Jean Yip. If you think carefully, it is not very convincing right? But, commercials are meant to be like that.

Again, I hope I am not sounding like I am condemning all these weight loss centres, after all, apart from overstating the results; it is still go to have all these centres. It is a good head start for many people who want to lose weight and don’t know where to start or what to do. To me, there is not whether if it is the right method or wrong method, it is if you can follow it for a long term till you reach your idea weight. For Jacelyn, with the 2 to 3 kgs “weight” to lose, and compare to me, with 20 kgs lost and another 10 more to go, the price paid in these centres are definitely not going to be the same!
