I love the movies... but they're often wrong. I mean, not everyone meets Mr. Right walking their dog, and if you are having a bad day, there isn't usually an amazing life-changing event to make it all better. And I doubt any 40 year old virgins were hit by trucks in their efforts to hide their secret! The diet advice can be pretty sketchy too... here are my favourites!
1. “Well, I don't eat anything and when I feel like I'm about to faint I eat a cube of cheese. I'm just one stomach flu away from my goal weight."
The Devil Wears Prada was an amazing movie, and it even gives some fantastic fashion advice... it's the perfect film for girly sleep overs! It's diet advice isn't exactly spot on, though... I think I'd prefer to go for a run then use Emily's weight-loss method!
2. "We would just like it if you'd go home and step on the scale, and write down how much you weigh, and subtract it by like, 20. And then weigh that much."
Knocked Up was hilarious... I watched it four times at the cinema! And I so wish that weight loss worked like the TV Executive seemed to think... Selecting your weight seems like such an easy way to ensure you always look your best!
3. "I want you to think of what you ate today. Got it? Now cut that in half. This is called a diet, people, everyone start one today! Darcy, you should stop eating. You see, when you skip a meal, your body feeds off its fat stores. And if you skip enough, maybe your body will eat your ass!"
I loved Bring It On, and the new cheerleading coach was so funny when he took over. I couldn't stop laughing at this advice to Darcy! Cutting your calories in half isn't a good idea, though, and makes you much more likely to stop burning calories then actually help you loose weight. Oops!
