The Quick Fix

Have you heard the commercial: Are you looking to lose weight fast?  You can lose up to 2lbs a day.  You don't have to change what you eat.  You don't have to exercise.  You don't have to take a pill. 

Sounds good right?  They want you to put a drop of something on your food.  Sounds easy.  You'll be thin in no time.  DON'T DO IT!  Think about this. Really, how good could that be for you?

I am not a fan of the quick weight loss diets or diet pills.  You wanna know why?  Because they simply are not good for you.  What are you learning?  What are you changing?  What do you think is going to happen when you stop? You gain it back.  You get depressed.  You eat more.  Its's a HORRIBLE cycle.

How many times do you hear people losing weight quickly before their wedding or a big vacation?  What happens after?  "I gained 10 lbs on the honeymoon." or "I came back two sizes bigger from the vacation."  It's because you aren't teaching your body anything good.  Your body is reacting to the quick change, it doesn't mean it's going to last.  It will adjust and then when you alter and eat normal or more then you will gain it back and more.  It's simply not healthy.

Diet pills make me want to scream. Suppressing your appetite does not make it healthy. Just because you aren't hungry all of the time does not mean that you are making smart decisions when you are hungry.  And what happens when you stop taking the pills?  You are hungry again and you haven't changed your habits.  So you gain it all back.  Is it really worth relying on a pill for that?

Oh and yeah, you may get thinner, but if you aren't changing your habits and you are still eating junk, then you are still not helping with blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease.  Good job, you may look better, but your insides are still full of crap.

Do it the right way.  You'll feel so much better.
