Here, ‘top research scientist, author and doctor’, Robert O Young appears on CNN to explain how to lose weight by drinking alkaline water. Apparently, ‘even your thoughts can make you over acidic’. When you move to a more alkaline diet, you can lose ‘up to a pound a day’, ‘it’s not about calories’ and ‘over exercising can make you fat’. A truly revolutionary approach.
Of course, if you can lose ‘up to’ a pound a day, that literally means you can’t lose more than a pound. Also, it has just crossed my mind he could mean a pound in currency but judging by the prices on his site, I expect it would cost considerably more than that.
