Blogging About Coke = 4 CaloriesPosted: September 1, 2013
This morning I read this, which led me to this. An ad recently deemed to misleading to be aired in the United Kingdom.
I can not let this one slide by without comment.
5 min yelling = 13 calories → 56 min yelling = 1 Coke
Unless I am yelling at the Coca-Cola Company executive board I do not think I could keep that one up.
Humans are complex structures. Energy in, energy out is a dangerous simplification.
This ad frames Coke to ways
Coke Becomes either:
- A tool for energy. A gross misrepresentation considering liquids calories do not register as food. You can’t make a meal out of a big gulp.
- A vice to immediately labor to expel… so why drink it.
Health Halos, I will make the point many have made before.
