Can you spot the odd one out?
Sorry, I trapped you. There isn’t an odd one out. They’re all the same.
When they don’t work they blame the user for not doing it properly.
Dieting doesn’t work.
Ask the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Body Image if you don’t believe me. Representatives of the dieting industry including Slimming World and WeightWatchers, gave evidence to it and said,
“People have to get over the idea that you just diet once and that is it. It is a life-long commitment.” [link]
Imagine that! It doesn’t work once, or twice. It doesn’t work the third time you do it.
It only works if you keep going back and paying the money over and over again. Therefore, it doesn’t work I suggest. Yet, whenever people pursue dieting, and fail to lose or keep off weight it is NOT dieting that is seen as at fault, it is the person for “doing it wrong”.
I’ve seen the same thing with Lean/Prince2/OBA. There’s no platonic ideal of these that exists perfectly in some abstract realm, along with other ideals that muck up when people get involved, like democracy or marriage.
But people act as if there is. As if it’s only when people do it wrong, that they these abstract Platonic Gods send their representatives to berate people for failing to worship their gods hard enough. We’re at fault, we fail our Gods! Not the other way round.
Apart from Weight Watchers of course.
