So.. I met this guy in the park the other day.. well actually he was invited there by Brandy and I think he came with pinning me down in mind.  That's right.. multi-level marketing.  Every multi level marketer in the universe tries to get their claws into me.. even today at the DMV... random strangers couldn't help but give us a sample of their product.  I'm sure this has to do with the fact that my husband and I make a fantastic comedic team in odd public places.  ANYWAY... this guy sells USANA.  Apparently they are fantastic nutritional supplements... blah blah blah. 
So why the blog entry?
We were talking about nutrition and I was talking about clean eating, healthy choices etc.. and he says to me: "It sounds like the diet and lifestyle that you promote might come across as extreme to some people.  Usana has this "renew" plan that is a much easier transition... you know.. you eat NOTHING but our shakes and bars for a week to detox." 
WTF?!?!?  This is the thing.. he was totally right.  It's way easier to sell people on starving themselves for a week then to sell them on eating plenty of fruits and veggies and giving up sugar.  Go figure!
If you are interested I'm going to start selling meal replacement shakes...

I mentioned he was invited there by Brandy so you didn't think I go around meeting MEN at the park! ;)

LOL, this is the most true thing I have seen in so long. And I think it is because all those diet drinks promise immediate results, where as the fruit and veggie route is a real change and may take a little time.
Even my little sister who is 19 and not over weight tells me she needs to take diet pills to loose weight. This girl runs Ragnar for fun, but needs to loose weight.
Thanks Kari

Can I get some product from you? And maybe sign up underneath you?!?!? Please!!!! : )

It's a 'quick fix.' It's a whole lot easier to commit to a month and then tell yourself you can go right back to your old ways once the weight comes off. But that doesn't last, and it doesn't teach you how to be healthy! I hope you set him straight :-)
