Are Yo-Yo-ing Celebs More Relatable for Diet Ads?

Celebrities are real people. They go to the grocery store (unless their assistant goes for them), drive cars (if their driver has the day off), and their weight fluctuates.

Diet companies have a recent history of corralling celebrities into being their spokespeople, but is this the best marketing strategy? People who see a celebrity as a diet spokesperson believe that they “know” the person who is losing weight right in front of them. So what happens when this known person gains the weight back?

We all remember Kirstie Alley‘s shining moment on Oprah as she danced around in her bathing suit after her weight loss on Jenny Craig. Jenny Craig gave her the boot when she gained her weight back and she was back on Oprah, this time with conservative dress and a solemn look on her face.

Notorious yo-yo dieter Carnie Wilson was the spokesdieter for The Fresh Diet and had a successful start with a 20 pound weight-loss.

“She dropped, like, 20 pounds in the first three months. Then she, I mean, she had to go off of it. There’s no question. She might have eaten the meals, but she ate the meals with a lot of other stuff. She started a cheesecake company.” Zalmi Duchman, chief executive for Fresh Diets, said.

Carnie Wilson Dropped as Fresh Diet Spokesperson Because of Weight

Written by Alicia Rose

Gaining weight is often unsettling and upsetting when it occurs to the person who falls victim to packing on the pounds, but imagine on top of the devastation and your new physical and health problems, you are also fired from your job because of it.

Well, for Carnie Wilson, the 42 year-old 5’3″ singer famous for her pop group Wilson Phillips and television hosting gigs, the case is just that.

Wilson, who has often been in the press for her ever-changing weight, often losing a significant amount of it, then gaining most of it back, and sometimes then some, has been yo-yo dieting for years. In 1999, she also reportedly underwent gastric bypass surgery where she dropped from 300 pounds to 150 pounds. Following that she posed for Playboy and appeared in the television show Celebrity Fit Club.

Your Scale: Best Friend or Worst Enemy?

This guest post was submitted by The Fresh Diet, a Florida-based meal delivery company whose food is based on the 40% carbohydrates, 30% proteins and 30% fats diet concept.

Clearly the easiest way to measure your dieting success is to check the scale. Who doesn’t like to step on a scale when dieting and see that they’ve lost weight!

But, too much reliance on the scale can actually have a negative affect on your diet progress. That’s why we recommend only using the scale once a week.

Why? Throughout any given week your weight will fluctuate. What most dieters don’t realize is that the amount of salt you eat actually regulates the amount of water in your body. And based on changes in salt intake the water level in your body will shift too.
