London: A company is looking to hire a “professional couch potato” who will be required to do nothing but eat more junk food - and get paid for it.
The firm Proactol Ltd is inviting applications to test their fat binder, which allegedly absorbs up to 30 per cent of fat intake, the Telegraph reported.
Officials are willing to pay £23,750 to a “worker” who will eat 400 extra calories every day in high fat meals such as chips and pizzas during the initial in-house monitoring period to test the fat binding properties of a weight loss product.
“It’s the ultimate work-from-home-job,” the company said. The successful applicant will get to work from home, with supplies being delivered to their door.
The ad reads: “We know it’s incredible, but it’s true. We are willing to pay you £23,750 a year to continue doing EXACTLY what you do every single day, and all we ask is you eat 16 per cent more calories a week - or 400 more calories a day - whilst introducing Proactol to your diet.
“The ideal candidate should not already be on a diet but eat a healthy balance of carbohydrates, fats and proteins and be prepared to increase their existing calorie intake by 16 per cent a week by eating fatty foods such as Chinese takeaways, fish and chips, pizza. Essentially we want you to be yourself. No strings.”
How do I apply??? 400 extra calories a day really isn't that hard to do...this is a bit more amatuer than pro. Let's see I typically eat a balanced diet, with an occasional dining out or home delivered meal. Seriously, I could so do this job. Although the drug sounds a bit too much like Xenical aka Alli...and uh no thanks.
