“I’m Carol Alt”: I’m Just Like You

No, Carol, you’re not: And, that’s okay! Former supermodel Carol Alt continues to introduce her eponymous show A Healthy You & Carol Alt with one of the most annoying taglines ever. I.e., “I’m Carol Alt. I’ve been on the cover of more than 700 magazines and traveled the world for photo shoots and movies….I’m just like every person watching this show, and I want to help make a healthy you.” Argh!

One is surely tempted to turn the channel after Carol’s solipsist boast amid the cognitive dissonance. But, the gorgeous gal appears to have done her health homework and even the fitness nut may learn a thing or two from her. But, if Carol wants to broaden her viewers beyond those who have read her latest book, Easy Sexy Raw, she may want to open up the arcane argot of her health experts and herself to FNC’s “benighted masses”: In other words, if Carol want truly wants to make her fans “A Healthy You” she needs to spend less time trying to impress her expert guests with her knowledge and more on conveying it to her audience.

As a viewer of her show since its inception, the author has noticed that Carol has tried to hone it each week. And, as one who hopes that she and it succeeds on FNC, he hopes that she will scratch the irritating intro, supra, (or, at least, have someone else do the voice over) and talk less exclusively with her experts–and more so with her audience.

Go “Easy Sexy Raw,” Carol! Less experts and argot: more you and your audience. Again, dare to bare!

    I must agree. I find her toally unrelatable. For the average woman she comes across more like an informercial. A hardworking person is concerned with putting food on the family and taking care of their family, NOT nip and tucks and consuing a diet of esioteric foods, supplements and designer attire.

    The Raw Food thing is just another eating disorder. It’s an excuse to
    starve and pretend you are “eating healthy.” She would be the ultimate impossible dinner guest. And Carol….the t in often is silent!
