OK, so you were just watching t.v. (or listening to the radio or reading a magazine) and you saw an ad that promised that you could lose weight fast and easy. But, since you are an intelligent person, you have your doubts.
Is it really possible to lose weight fast and easy? Is there really a system, a supplement or an exercise machine that will work like that?
Well, I don’t pretend to be an expert but I can tell you from my experience I’ve never found anything for weight loss that really delivered the way it was supposed to.
I have found that some exercise programs, eating programs or supplements might help a little, but I’ve never found one that will do it all as quickly or as easily as the advertising would have you believe.
I have bought many types of products over the years to get in better shape. Everything from exercise equipment, to workout DVD’s to a supplement and I can tell you one thing that I’ve noticed on all of them: they have disclaimers.
While not necessarily a bad thing, when you buy a weight loss supplement that promises you can lose weight “without dieting or exercise” and then you read the side of the bottle where it clearly states something like: “In conjunction with a healthy eating plan and exercise” you kind of have to wonder if the supplement is really doing anything at all.
I mean if you used the same healthy eating plan and exercise without taking the supplement, would you see the same results? Is it the supplement that is making the excess fat disappear or is it the healthy eating plan and exercise?
Like I said above, I’m no expert so I don’t know but it does kind of make you wonder, doesn’t it?
Of course, you should always talk to your doctor before you start any type of eating plan, exercise plan or taking any supplements. If you have any restrictions your doctor will let you know.
So, you may be wondering, does that mean that I have to work hard to lose weight? Well, based on my own experience, the answer to that question would be “no”. You see, recently I went on a “diet” where I just gave my body the foods it needed to run at it’s best.
I ate several small, healthy meals throughout the day and I actually lost weight! Yes, that’s right, you heard me, I ate more food and I lost weight.
I lost almost a pound a day! And the really cool thing was that I did it in a healthy way; I just gave my body what it needed. I increased my metabolism so I was burning fat throughout my day and I lost weight.
I hope that I’ve shown you that while there may not be any shortcuts to weight loss, you can lose all the weight you need to lose just by giving your body what it needs. Keeping your body functioning at it’s best while losing weight sounds like a pretty good deal to me.
If you want to lose weight fast and easy I would recommend you talk to your doctor first for some ideas and then see about eating your way to a better body. Sounds odd, but it worked for me, it will probably work for you too.
