OMFG gattica anyone? does this not scare anyone else?
The experimental devices are designed to keep track of how many minutes they work out, how much food they consume and even whether they are at a fast-food joint when they should be in the park. The goal is to cut down on self-reported answers that often cover up what’s really happening.
I recently found THIS article (complete with the obligatory headless fatty picture….this time with a monitor) http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/weightloss/2010-01-07-obesity-monitors_N.htm
it’s a freaking monitor. nanny state anyone? I am SO mad right now I am seeing red. SO they are gonna make me wear a monitor and tell me what I should be eating? how much I should be moving? whats next? what happens when I DONT lose weight? I wont, trust me…on diets if anything I UNDER eat and OVER exercise, not the other way around asshat. AND I STILL DONT LOSE WIEGHT. “Traditional weight-loss interventions rely mainly on people’s memory of what they ate for dinner and how many minutes they worked out. But researchers have long known that method can be unreliable since people often forget details or lie.” Right blame the fatty…because if we don’t lose the weight we MUST be lying. we HAVE to be eating bon bons. And watching tv. I wonder if the monitor is waterproof so I can swim…or does that not count? (since some of the protoypes monitor sweat levels to determine activity levels) do i have to wear a freaking heart rate monitor while i blow out my bad knees running on a treadmill because OMFG YOUR ARE FAT YOU WILL DIEEEEEEEEEEE.
Anybody else reminded of gattica, with the rows of perfect clones running in synchronization, wearing heart rate monitors… /shudder
