The next trap that catches a lot of people does so because if appeals to their desperation, they need for a result, no matter the cost financially or physically.
Fat Loss Faux-pas #4 – The Quick Fix
There are numerous companies that will for lack of a better word ‘prey’ on those who have struggled to achieve results through conventional methods (diet adjustment, exercise and life style changes). This happens because they hit an emotional cord, because of that the unknowing victim will justify going on a 600 calorie shake diet with logic, not matter how stupid or dangerous it really is.
I understand that losing weight isn’t easy for everyone. Some lose lbs effortlessly each week, other struggle to shift 4 lbs in a month and this leads them down the dark and narrow path of meal replacement fad diets which once started must be followed forever!
Ok, maybe not forever but I have witnessed several people get great weight loss (not fat loss, WEIGHT as in muscle), shortly after returning these ‘successful’ weight loss programs they return to eating properly again and often pile the lbs back on.
Try to stay away from the allure of the quick fix, stick with whole foods that a highly nutrient dense, you will find you lose fat slowly and steadily but the weight is more likely to stay off.
The sad truth about the quick fix is this; there isn’t one.
Hard work, patience and persistence will pay off and get you to where you want to be. Don’t worry of you’re not getting there as fast as someone else as long as you’re getting there, remember the story of the tortoise and the hair.
