Most, if not all of my posts, are positive and uplifting, and hopefully I can put a positive spin on this, but the truth is I can’t take it anymore! Every time I log on Facebook or Instagram I am bombarded with people and companies straight up lying to me and all the people around me. I say people, but honestly, it’s mostly women. As someone who has spent 3 years of my life researching health and fitness, I know a little bit about what is true and not true when it comes to losing weight and getting fit. The truth is, it’s not that complicated.
ATTENTION WORLD: I have discovered the top secret mystery of how to lose weight that has left people puzzled for hundreds of years. Read carefully, because it’s really complicated. Here it is. Eat food that serves you. Drink water. Workout. There it is. AND GUESS WHAT!? You don’t have to pay $$$$ to get this special formula that will help you lose weight fast. Science is science. Weight loss is not magic, it has always been the same and always will be the same.
I don’t know why it bothers me so much, but it does. All these companies that try to sell me all these shakes, wraps, detox, cleanses, whatever to help me get rid of that “problem fat that just won’t go away.” I mean, I’m no supermodel, I’ve got some pudge in places I would rather not have it, but I’m honest with myself. The other day I ate a whole bag of candy in a 5 minute sitting. I promise you Miranda Kerr isn’t doing that. That is why it won’t go away, not because of the “toxins that I’m storing in my belly.” AND I’M FINE WITH THAT! No one is paying me $100,000 to model their bikinis, so I’m going to eat that candy, and then work the my little booty off tomorrow, and be happy with how I look.
I know people struggle. I know it is hard to start working out when you have a lot to loose, and it just seems like no matter what you do it won’t come off. I know that sometimes these companies give women a push to get started and live that healthy lifestyle, so I can’t completely bash everyone selling it and trying it. I know it is good for some people, but right now, it’s just way too inflated. Instead of all these companies directing people that really need help to a more lifelong change, they are focused on the quick fix that makes them the most money.
However, you decided to live your life or spend your money is up to you. But if you were to ask my personal opinion about all of this weight-loss fads, I would say, spend your money on things like, a gym membership, a personal trainer, protein powder, pre-workout, stuff that will ACTUALLY help. Also, don’t let advertisements make you feel like there is something missing in your life. As long as you are living a healthy lifestyle, there is no problem areas! WOMEN let’s stand together and say “no thanks” to all the BS.
SO the point of me writing this is to say, STOP LYING TO ME. I’M MARRIED TO A FREAKING SCIENTIST, I HAVE A PERSONAL 24/7 FACT CHECKER. Okay thanks bye.
