One of the multi-level marketing types on my Facebook is now doing a 30-day cleanse and fat burning program. Sadly, that doesn't mean eating well and lifting, it means smoothies and packets of soup, etc. She's really been hyping how great it is and how good she feels (and the fact that it includes "healthy chocolate"), so I figured it was something she could get a referral for. I looked it up and the company does indeed have reps, and the 30-day program costs US$375, which is a bit over CA$400 depending on the day and who does the conversion, and there's probably shipping, handling and duties on that too. All for powdered smoothies and soup... Whenever I feel bad about how long I've spent in school and the fact that I'm a broke grad student with a low rate of savings, I'll just remember this, and then I won't feel so bad.
