I just clicked on a Facebook ad for Make Health Last, which has an online assessment questionnaire about healthy lifestyles. Here's why it's a load of bollocks:

(1) After answering a question about my height (5' 4"), weight (147lb) and waist size (28"), I was shown the message: "Your Body Mass Index (BMI) or waist measurement suggests you could benefit from losing some weight. When would you be willing to start making changes?" Overweight? F@#* off! That's because of muscle mass, you idiots, not a lard arse! I wear kids' clothes, for goodness' sake!

(2) When asked about my diet: "Eat high fat foods such as whole dairy products, fatty meats, donuts, cookies, or deep-fried foods such as battered fish, fish and chips, samosas or Jamaican patties?" So you're grouping whole dairy and fatty meat alongside donuts and cookies? Hmm...

(3) "Your answers suggest that you could benefit from eating a healthier diet. When would you be willing to make changes to eat a healthier diet?" Try never.
