Turns out that most are dietitians with a flare for local media outreach — a surprising number of whom could be played by Kristen Wiig in the made-for-TV movie of this scandal.
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.
