Remember the professor who made big headlines for losing weight on a “Twinkie Diet”? Turns out he was paid by Coca Cola. Perfectly aligned with their misleading message that weight loss is all about calories and personal responsibility (not about Coca Cola).
Have you seen any dietitian recommending mini-Coca Colas on blogs or TV, or any chef cooking with Coca Cola? Turns out they were all likely paid by Coca Cola, behind the scenes.
