How yacon can help you to lose weight

This post is dedicated to all of the yacon spammers trying to put comments on our blog and Youtube videos peddling their pills and potions and stealing our images.

Yacon can help you to lose weight and make you happier!  I am certain of this.  Here is the secret:

1. Get yourself a yacon plant, or a piece of rhizome, or a cutting from someone who has a yacon plant.  Yacon plants are attractive and easy to grow.

2. Plant it in your yard.

3. Tend it.  Keep it weeded, remove any pests that attack it, stand out in the sun for a while and enjoy your plant.  (Leave your phone inside.  You are probably just getting emails from yacon syrup spammers anyway.)

You will probably lose some weight and you will probably be happier too.

Once you harvest the plant, eat some fresh yacon tuber.  It is tasty.  It is filling.  It has few calories.  It might give you some gas, but it’s all good.

Save the rhizome from your plant and grow ten new plants.  You will lose ten times as much weight, have ten times as much yacon to eat and, who knows, maybe you’ll even be ten times happier.

The initial expense will be small and the ongoing expense even smaller.

Alternatively, you can buy some stupidly expensive boiled down yacon juice in a jar, made God-knows-where, using who-knows-what, replacing a tiny bit of sweetener in your diet.

Grow things.  Cook things.  Lose weight.  Stop spam.  There is no magic that comes in a jar, but there is plenty of it in your back yard.

    I truly appreciate your down-to-earth, no fuss approach and your sense of humor. Another yacon post made me snort like a pig as I visualized a grown man walking through the yacon patch, mumbling ”no caterpillars, no caterpillars, no caterpillars”.

    You are SO loved!
