Why doesn't Harry Potter tell Hagrid the easy, fast way to lose weight? - It would only take two little bits of magic...(o: -
1) just enough to make him forget all the conditioned thinking about obesity being caused by overeating and cured by dieting.
2) just enough to get him to understand that obesity is actually caused by fluid retention, which in turn is caused by salt sensitivity, and that obesity can easily be reduced by eating less salt and salty food. - Dieting is not necessary and usually results in greater obesity because it weakens the blood vessels and leads to greater fluid retention.
I can understand that Harry doesn't want to tell his cousin, Dudley, but I do wish he'd tell Hagrid!
Lose weight by eating less salt! Go on! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
