All diets are just mind games. The only rules are: 1) Eat when you're hungry, and stop when you're full; and 2) Everything in moderation (nothing is forbidden). A little physical activity goes a long way too - not just for burning calories, but for improving digestion and mood in general

Why was this a featured recommendation? This was pointless and a waste of time. The host was okay, she made me laugh. God I hope she was being ironic though, with all the "ooh this is soooo interesting" comments, because if she was serious, then please just kill me now.

The problem with this podcast is that absolutely everybody in it - from those selling snake oil to those trying to bring them down by way of those buying it - is an irredeemable combination of criminal, obscenely wealthy, entitled and stupid, so why would you care who wins? SPOILER: Nobody wins.

If there's anything worse than a scammer, it's a scammer who says she did it for her autistic child. As the parent of an autistic child myself yet who has somehow managed to stay on the right side of the law, I struggle to imagine how much lower you can get.

I mean a minority that was poor wouldn't be online selling expensive fiber powder though. they would be trying way harder to just try and survive

Don't listen. The narrative is all over the place and biased towards the Emily character. 😒

Ugh. Really wondery? It seems like you could do much better than this stupid story. I thought there was a point and then I realized there really wasn't. Just dumb people doing dumb social media crap. yawn. Don't waste your time folks.

No Ingrid you didn't kill anyone but you were a cheater and you stole money from people and you lied. That is criminal. Just because you didn't commit the worst crime doesn't mean you shouldn't be punished for the crimes you committed. What about all those people that you stole from and cheated? And you weren't innocent you had an elaborate scheme going on. You knew exactly what you were doing. in another country you would have gotten far worse.

Tonya sounds like a real nasty person IRL. As nasty as the rank farts that result from an excessive fiber diet.
