THIS FAT OLD LADY’S FAT FRIDAY – I CALL BS ON “SHITTY” RESEARCH

How do you get funding for your research?

Associate it with weight loss!

No matter how tenuous the connection, no matter if your research already shows that it doesn’t work – more research is needed.

You know what?

I would love if being fat were a choice.

But for most people it isn’t.

Just like people come in all colors, they come in all sizes and shapes too.

And fat people are often very healthy – and it’s not in spite of their size.

It’s evolution, folks.  (As discussed in a previous post.)

Fatties have been around for as long as there have been people, so no surprise that fat bodies have evolved to deal well with being fat.  Duh.

Anyhow, my current rant is about the research of Dr. Jessica R. Allegretti, who wants fatties to eat shit – literally.

Okay, she puts it in a capsule for you, but still ….

It turns out that the gut biome of naturally lean people is different from the gut biome of fat people.

Interesting.  Deserves study.

The hypothesis was that transplanting the lean gut biome to a fat person would increase the GLP-1 production (a protein that tells the brain that the person is full and should stop eating).

Interesting.  Deserves study.

So they did a (small) study.

They found that the transplant did NOT increase GLP-1 production; although there was an increase in certain bile acids that break down fat.

What they did NOT find was any weight loss.

Okay.  Interesting stuff studied and answers found.

Right?

Nope.

In an interview, Dr. Allegretti said the treatment is safe and well-tolerated!

Yippee!

We can eat shit without harm!

What she failed to mention was that there was NO WEIGHT LOSS!

JFC, lady.

Oh, and the 11 study participants had to swallow 30 shit pills at the outset; with two follow-ups (at 4 and 8 weeks) of 12 additional shit pills.

Dr. Allegretti thinks perhaps the dosage needs to be adjusted!

Yay, shit pills for everyone!

Give it a rest Dr. Allegretti, it didn’t work, and more study (imho) is just more H(uman)S(hit).

And I just can’t thinking about post-shit pill burps.

Ewwwww.

burp

  2. Not to mention, there are plenty of fat people who routinely eat moderately & in many cases less than a lot of thin people & are still fat. Aside from all the other stupid shit in this idea is STILL the insistence that fat people are fat because we eat ‘too much’ or more than thin people. Bullshit!
