I came across this article about coca-cola’s new calorie-burning beverage to be released in Winter of 2007. Apparently, like all hypo-caloric drinks that contain caffeine, it burns more than you consume while drinking it…i guess my cocktail of green tea and caffeine pills may be surplanted.
Discussing this new product, which i don’t find that new…, with Ana brought up that perhaps i have a problem in that i am looking forward to it being released…so, i decided to take a psychological test online…and lo and behold:
“1. A score of more than 20 on the EAT-26: “your score on the EAT-26 indicates significant eating or weight concerns and a significant percentage of young women who score in this range have eating disorders or at risk for developing eating disorders. Based on your score, it is recommended that you seek a consultation from a qualified health professional to determine if your concerns require special assistance.”
2. A positive response to one or more of the four behavioral questions following the EAT-26: “You have reported a behavior that indicates a potentially significant problem common among people with eating disorders. Based on your score, it is recommended that you seek a consultation from a qualified health professional to determine if your concerns require special assistance.”
Great. Another reason to go see a counsellor. who doesn’t feel guilty about what they eat? if i had an eating disorder, my BMI would be under 18, not 25, but apparently there is an in-between phase of people who are very susceptible but not causing any physical damage to themselves. Lovely. If you’re interested in how such a condition can possible be determined using the internet (which i am always skeptical of, though apparently my GRE scores correlate to the results from all those online IQ tests i used to take as a kid, so maybe i should be less skeptical), you can by going here.
i forecast this product making Coca-Cola a shitload of money. I am considering buying stock. I was always a Pepsi-product girl before, but this may swing the scales in Coca-Cola’s favour. The issue is that i hate diet coke…though i like diet pepsi.
