An open letter to all diet food peddlers
Due to the recent avalanche of PR-type emails to my inbox, I feel compelled to write this letter.
If you do PR for a diet-related product, please do not send me emails offering to send me samples and hoping I'll review it on my blog.
Don't send me perky emails about 100-calorie foods that will fill you up all day, packed full of unparalleled nutrients. (Really! Who dreams this crap up?) Don't think I'll shill for you. I won't. If I write about your diet product, rest assured I will tear it apart. That kind of publicity you really don't want.
This blog is NOT diet friendly. To paraphrase my late friend Mimi Orner, we are anti-diet, anti-anorexia, anti-bulimia, anti-healthy eating fascism, and anti-eating disorder here. I am not your friend. My readers are not your potential customers.
This blog is a diet-free zone. Go peddle your crap somewhere else.
