Take a Puff, Lose a Pound

Here’s another one from the you-can’t-make-this-stupid-sh*t-up department.


Can you believe that in the days before cigarette smoking was passe, tobacco companies actually marketed lighting up as a weight loss tool?!


Lucky Strike cigarette ads advocated, “Light a Lucky and you’ll never miss sweets that make you fat,” and “Avoid that future [double-chin] shadow by refraining from over-indulgence.”




The cigarette diet did work out well for lots of people: They got skinny as a skeleton after dying of lung cancer.
