Obesity Update: The Search For The “Holy Grail Weight-Loss Pill” Continues With Job Offers To “Overweight Couch Potatoes”

THE CHRONICALLY OVERWEIGHT (AND LAZY) WILL ALWAYS BE TEMPTED AND TEASED BY THE THOUGHT OF A “PILL” WHICH WILL MAKE THE POUNDS MELT AWAY…AND WILL NEVER CHANGE THEIR LIFESTYLE AND DIET REGIMENS TO LOSE WEIGHT THE “OLD-FASHIONED WAY”….

“The ideal candidate should not already be on a diet but eat a healthy balance of carbohydrates, fats and proteins and be prepared to increase their existing calorie intake by 16 per cent a week by eating fatty foods such as Chinese takeaways, fish and chips, pizza or McDonalds.

The spokesman said the tester would help the company’s medical experts learn more about the health benefits of taking Proactol – which it is claimed absorbs up to 30 per cent of fat intake.

After an initial in-house monitoring period the ‘couch potato’ will be given the opportunity to work from home – with supplies being delivered to their door.

A company is advertising for a couch potato to do nothing and eat more.

It will pay almost £24,000 to a “worker” with a big appetite who is happy to eat 400 extra calories every day in high fat meals such as chips and pizzas, to test the fat binding properties of a weight loss product.

The position is open to men and women and the successful applicant will have their calorific intake and weight closely monitored by medics.

A spokesman for the firm Proactol Ltd said that while their fat binder was already clinically proven, they wanted to test it in the real world.

The job ad, which has already gone up in UK job centres, reads: “We know it’s incredible, but it’s true.

“We are willing to pay you £23,750 a year to continue doing EXACTLY what you do every single day, and all we ask in return is that you eat 16 per cent more calories a week – or 400 more calories a day – whilst introducing Proactol into your diet.
