Yo-Yo Dieting

I barely know who Calum Scott is, and yet I identify with him.  The Britain’s Got Talent winner took to social media to discuss his weight fluctuation whilst on the road.  He posted three shirtless pics from his 2018 tour which were only weeks apart but showed a drastic difference in definition.  He added “I always yo-yo with my weight because I love wine and carbs but I learned that that’s ok.  It’s about making sure you train hard and eat well, then the treats are well deserved.  Who is getting fit in 2020?”  He had me till he mentioned training hard and eating well!

Perhaps Calum Scott should have a conversation with Jessica Simpson.  In the sometime singer’s upcoming autobiography, she reveals an addiction to diet pills for more than 20 years.  Simpson traces her issues back to a conversation she had with Tommy Mottola on her 17th birthday.  She did an audition for him at Columbia Records, and he offered her a recording contract – if she lost 15 pounds.  “That’s what it will take to be Jessica Simpson.”  And to think she thought she was already Jessica Simpson!  By the by, I unearthed an interview Jessica did with Oprah Winfrey over a decade ago when she bemoaned the battle of the bulge.  “I’ve tried every fad diet, every diet there is, but never to the extent where it’s unhealthy.”  How can I get my hands on those healthy pills?
