For anyone who would like to avoid reading this nonsense, here's from the end of the article:

Keri Peterson, M.D., a physician at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City tells Women's Health magazine. "It's outrageous, and it just absolutely makes no medical sense whatsoever."

But. but, corsets are recommended by doctors to reduce corpulency!

Corsets don't really give you a new figure unless you also have that pesky lowest rib removed. But with that, and my new corset, holy crap--I can't even eat a carrot stick anymore without gasping. When I get down to 77 pounds (a "magic" number), I'll post pics. You won't believe how sexy it makes you look.

You could use it as kind of an external gastric band, I guess. If you tighten it so much you can't eat, you will lose weight!

Thanks. I didn't even make it past the first paragraph.

Guy I knew in college tried this same line of thinking with a heavy rock, some twine and his Johnson. The technique didn't make him any longer, but it did turn black. So, he's got that going for him ..

Spanx do the same thing. I get the worst stomach ache if I wear them. I ended up losing the 20lbs instead of wearing Spanx. Much more comfortable.

Pro diet:Beverly Hills-based Dr Alexander Sinclair
Anti-Diet:  Keri Peterson, M.D., a physician at Lenox Hill Hospital

So, the "doctor" who's practice consists of writing actors prescriptions for weed, Oxy, and dangerous weight loss drugs, probably mixed with some plastic surgery thinks this is an amazing diet, and a doctor who works for an actual hospital treating people thinks it's a bad idea.  Color me shocked.

You don't have to wear a corset so tightly that becomes damaging. I know a rather full-busted woman that wears them quite often because it takes the load from her breasts off her shoulders and places it on her hips.

There is this weather woman with weight issues.  I think she is wearing corsets because her body looks like it is stuffed into into a teflon pantssuit.  And she can barely move to point at the weather map.

Do a bing image search for spanx and thinstinct, as long as you can stuff your fat into a girdle of some sort your are no longer technically obese.

Same goes for the guys that inject whatever it is into their biceps to create the illusion of actual work.

I was always amazed by the number of undergarments my Italian born grandmother ( born in 1893) wore.  She wore a bra, a corset, slip, undershirt, girdle, panties. Getting dressed and undressed was a big ritual.  Now some people don't wear any underwear.

Instead of distorting your body for weight loss, try my new diet, the Slavavitch diet.

No corsets or exercise or following a special diet plan required.

It goes like this: we provide you with midget in a harness to wear on your back. The midget has a helmet with a camera on top, which connects to our offices, where one of us is monitoring your food intake in real time. As you start to reach for that donut or eclair, we yell "slap a biatch" into the midget's earpiece. Well you can guess what happens next. We have a 100% success rate.

I don't have one at all, since I'm a girl. If I want a corset I can go down to Hot Topic and buy one just like all the fat goth girls do.

George R. R. Martin wrote a short story quite similar to this, except it's a monkey instead of a midget. "The Monkey Treatment".

If you're the one toting around a heavy upper load, there's a big difference between this:

Unless the corset is attached to a liposuction machine, body fat isn't 'melting away', it's just being redistributed.
