The Fake Food industry and the Diet-Industrial Complex…

hand in glove.

I’m not surprised by this revelation, but I’m sure some will be. The same companies who engineer food-like substances for maximum addictiveness are the same that are also getting into the diet business and pushing it hard.

Let’s look at the rogues’ gallery:

  • Nestlé: Jenny Craig
  • Heinz: Weight Watchers
  • Unilever: SlimFast

And what else do these multinationals serve up?

  • Nestlé: Nesquik, Hot Pockets, Stouffer’s, Tombstone Pizza…
  • Heinz: Ore-Ida Potatoes, Bagel Bites, TGI Friday’s Frozen Foods…
  • Unilever: Knorr, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, Ragu Spaghetti Sauce, Klondike Bar…

In short, they get you coming and going. They get you through thick and thin. Perhaps it’s time to ditch the Frankenfood for some real food for a change?
