Does shining the skin include “polishing off” the missus?

Eat Breakfast YA! (I wonder why the YA is written in Latin letters in the Chinese part, when there is a perfectly fitting character 呀 for this very purpose).

As for how the translations came about:

It’s easy to see how “healthy weight loss” became “health reduce heavy”

胖 apparently means both “fat” and “easy and comfortable”, so I guess something like “easily/comfortably adds energy” became “vigor increase fatly”.

But the last one stumps me. It literally means “young shining skin”.

@alexmagnus: Stumped? Why? To me, that seems like a perfectly normal claim for such a product.

Health reduce… heavy! Vigor increase fatly!
So this is basically a bucket of saturated fat?
