This Is How You Fake A 'Before' And 'After' Photo

Don't be fooled.

Before and after photos are the crux of the weight loss world, or so it seems. But there's more to it than what means the eye. 

Buzzfeed Video set up a "before" and "after" photo session to show just how easy it is to create these shots, without having to work out at all.

"Don't be hard on yourself," a model says in the video of these intimidating methods the diet industry uses. "As long as you feel good about yourself that all that matters."

Well said.
