The Perpetual Money Machine

Start with the human tendency to feel inadequate and flawed.

Bolt on highly-engineered food products with limitless variety (Nabisco has 54 products listed on the Oreo website alone!) and availability (they even sell snacks at non-food stores like Home Depot).

Build in an environment of unrealistic images in the media (and increasingly, pornography).

Finally, polish with an incredible variety of contradictory, but always difficult to follow, diets that promise quick results at the expense of sustainable weight loss.

Repeat ad infinitum.
