    Really, Min, I think you're giving snake oil a bad name. :bang-head:

    Food psychologist: "Did you become depressed when you discovered you were going to be a vegetable your whole life?"

    Vegetable: (No answer)

    Food psychologist: (after an hour of staring at the vegetable) Your silence says more than words. Something very important is happening in your subconscious mind. We will continue next week.

    @Min it seems they have many titles these days, everything from mixologists(basically a bartender), foodologists etc, I think it gives them a sense of importance I thought ologists were reserved for PhD's :rolleyes:

    So let me see if I've got this right. I fork out £35 and they will help me "shed weight" and "exercise by walking". And this is the same regime that cured the food psychologist of CFS? BARGAIN!!

    Does it matter that I'm already 30lb underweight and can barely toddle to the bathroom and back? I'd really hate to miss out on such cutting-edge treatment.

    Is she seriously attributing her illness at 12 to an addiction to Pot Noodle and chocolate? I blame the parents :lol:.

    Is that what they call native advertising, I'm pretty sure it's not journalism.

    Anyone who uses the word Cure in the sentence as CFS Immediately turns me off.

    I think a food psychologist is a psychologist who treats food. I've heard that psychological help for food is often trivialized, which leaves a big gap when it comes to much needed food mental health services.

    Don't you people realize how meat is often traumatized by vegetarian issues?

    Really, maybe a bite of empathy is called for? :lol:
