Default Denise Austin must be stopped!

I saw her on GMA this morning saying women can get rid of backfat in 3 weeks. How can she lie like that & still keep a straight face? No wait, I take that back.......I've never seen Denise Austin w/a straight face.

Maybe I'm overreacting but this really bugs the crap out of me. So-called fitness experts promulgating myths & half truths on national TV. There ought to be a law!

Denise Austin is the Robert Atkins of the video / DVD fitness world. All snake oil and greed.

Maxi, she bugs me too. What bugs me as well is the vast legion of people willing to believe her and other snake-oil peddlers. For every peddler of nonsense there's a willing buyer driven by wishful thinking rather than solid scientific informaton - and it will be ever thus.

What bugs me most of all is that solid pros like Cathe Friedrich often get erroneously lumped into the Denise Austin stereotype.

Did shesay something like, "...and to accomplish this, you MUST buy all MY videos" ? hahaha, she bugs me too.

It just goes to show how we all have really educate ourselves on what is good and what is not. Well, get this; the USDA continues to call froze French fries "fresh vegetables." Last year they agreed to a "batter-coating rule" ~ which implies if you can put wax on vegetables and call it "fresh" you can put batter on them too and still be called fresh.

I just have to ask--what was her suggestion for dropping the back fat in 3 weeks?? Does she have a new video--"Back Fat for Dummies" or "Backfatless in 3"???? Just curious!!!!}(

Well...technically the veggies are fresh up until they've been frozen, canned or have rotted - right? A vegetable is always healthy - isn't it? Carrot cake is healthy! :7

And of course, all of us who live in the Buffalo area know that if you eat your celery and carrot sticks with your chicken wings and french fries, it's a healthy meal.:-)

As for the Denis Austin stuff, my step-mother bought me her exercise for pregnancy book. It was pretty lame.

Im ashamed to say that Australia peddles alot of Denise Austin videos to its Aussie comsumers - I have no idea how may of us are and have been sucked in by her 6 week six pack promise, and heavens knows why we even import the products, when we supply our own, just as annoying, Aussie Instructors! and I know this is the million dollar question,

How does she get away with it? :-)

Hi everybody! :-)

Hey, let's say something positive too, if that's ok. :+

Denise Austin is actually the one, who got me started to exercise and that's good, regarding there I am now, 50 lbs. lighter, advanced exerciser and I love it. :D
Don't get me wrong though, she sure is not an expert in her field and I never would do any of her workouts again, because they are absolutely unprofessional. :o
But I have to give her some credit for acutally getting me started. Yeah! ;-)

Just my .02cents.

You all have a good day
Kristine:-)

She's somewhat of a shill, IMO. She also used to push some neoprene shorts on QVC, claiming that they would help you lose weight. The show hosts always had to clarify and say that it was short-term water loss.

Are you sure she refered to it as "back fat." She loves calling that stuff "bra overhang" (though when I get it, it's more like "bra underhang").

I seen that as well and thought "YEA RIGHT!" She is something else. And what did she do, take a bunch of uppers before she went on the show? She is annoying!
