Happy Bank Holiday Monday.
How amazing has it been to finally get some decent weather?!
Woohoo, out with the ‘Winter wardrobe’ and in with the ‘Summer wardrobe’
Although, I could be wrong, but I’m guessing most people reading this perhaps felt a little uncomfortable busting out their Summer stuff.
Changed about 5 times.
Weren’t happy looking in the mirror.
Felt self conscious, criticised every part of their body.
Got a upset, frustrated.
And wished they were slimmer.
Am I right?
Cue jumping on the latest fad, shake, pill, detox, cleanse or unnecessary over restriction of food in the desperate search for a quick fix and fast results.
So today I just wanted to help you out by giving you some knowledge.
To help you to beat through all the weightloss industry bullsh*t out there (believe me, there’s ALOT).
And what you can start doing today that will 100% guarantee you amazing results whilst allowing you to enjoy the process at the same time.
Let’s start with that weightloss industry bullsh*t.
Warning – rant alert!
1. Don’t Believe Someone Just Because They Call Themselves a Dr.
It’s a scientifically proven fact that calories in vs calories out is the one and only method to which weightloss or weightgain will occur.
This is has been proven time and time again, however people like Dr. Jade can make more money and have a lucrative weightloss business by fooling you into thinking it’s something else like your hormones.
Dr. Jade also thinks exercise is bad advice for weightloss (big face palm moment).
Whether your goal is weightloss or not, exercise plays such an incredibly important role not only in our physical health but also mental health and should ALWAYS be advised.
Exercise also play a huge part in our calorie burn, not necessarily a workout in itself but generally being active ie your steps.
And just to save you any confusion:
Your metabolism in not at a standstill – if it was…you would dead!!
Your metabolism is not broken – if it was…you would also be dead.
Your metabolism does not need to be ‘reset’ – this is not physiologically possible.
2. Stay Away From Quizzes.
Whether it’s weightloss for your bodytype, blood type, metabolic type.
It’s all utter rubbish but a great way to waste your time, be sold an unnecessary, ineffective product and be ripped off.
This guy V-Shred is everywhere trying to sell you the story the reason you’re not losing weight is because you’re not eating for your bodytype – just NO.
3. Avoid Anything with Unrealistic Claims
Such as ‘lose 10 pounds in 10 days’.
If this happens, congratulations, you just lost a sh*t load of water, precious muscle and felt like crap cause you starved yourself and mostly like drank something that tasted like poo.
All that weight (sadly not muscle) will go back on as soon as you start eating ‘normally’ again and you’ll be back to square one but with less money.
As much as we’d like them to, quick fixes just don’t work.
4. Don’t Buy Stupid Gadgets
If it sounds too good to be true….it usually is.
If it claims you’re gonna lose a tonne of weight by not doing anything – forget it.
Under this also comes fatburners and tablets that claims to help you burn more fat, prevent your body creating fat or helping you burn fat ‘all night long’.
5. Stay Clear of Anything/Anyone That Says Detox or Cleanse.
This is a HUGE business but unfortunately all a con.
Your body is an amazing machine and has a whole array of detoxing and cleansing organs such as your kidneys and liver.
Seriously, please save your money.
Oh and apple cider vinegar?
Tastes awful and does feck all, you don’t need to drink this or take it in tablet form.
OK, well this all sounds interesting Lee but what should I be doing?
Glad you asked.
I was going to share that with you today but thought I’d already given you quite a lot of info to take in so stay tuned to my blog on Thursday.
I’ll be explaining not only how to guarantee yourself results.
But also how to gain LASTING results so you don’t need to stress about busting out your Summer wardrobe ever again.
In the meantime,
If you have any questions to do with anything I’ve mentioned today or any type of weightloss supplement/gadget/myth please just get in touch so I can help.
