Slothful rich people lose weight effortlessly.
Open a clinic for rich and lazy people
can't find the willpower to diet and
exercise. At this clinic people are placed
into a medically induced coma and
subjected to a high nutriet, low calorie
intravenous diet and a daily regimen of
exercise machines and electrically
the patient will not be aware of the
passing of time, going in for this
procedure will seem magical. They close
their eyes and wake up a few months
a new person.
This would also be the perfect
opportunity to perform cosmetic surgery.
A good recommendation would be to
initiate the procedure in winter. Say just
after Christmas. Then when you awake,
a nice lovely spring day, you're 50lbs
lighter, your cheeks are pulled back and
your teeth are white.
I got this half baked idea while watching
Kill Bill Volume 1.
||I fear this treatment would both be very popular and a little dangerous.
||Slothful and rich don't go together anywhere near as much as slothful and poor. I wonder why.
Hey Pix, you've been here for a bit.
||And you would lose some more weiht after you have been woken from the coma as you have not used your muscles for so long and you would need to learn to walk again.
||[Pellepeloton] did you read the part in the idea that touched on the muscle-exercise issue?
||There's not just the electrical stimulation
of muscles here, but the fact that the
pathways in the brain aren't being
reinforced. Although the muscles are
being exercised you may be unfamiliar
with what you need to do to move
them by the time you come around.
||What about a comma diet? Punctuation only.
||Gotta look after your colon.
||[st3f], you're quite right in that respect, but unless well rehearsed neural pathways are imbued with levels of significant buoyancy, none of this is going to cause a person to "lose some more weiht".
