The fitness industry can be pretty superficial.
Every day I see pills and products advertised on social media that promise “bikini bodies” to anyone who purchases.
The ads always use those bullshit “Before and After” photos that make fat-loss and physique change seem easy…
We just need to eat this magic pill, right?
If you are considering these things or maybe you already have a bottle hidden in your cabinet that you’re planning to start, this blog post was written for you.
I’ll give you two BIG reasons to trash that shit:
1. These “quick fixes” are dangerous.
A lot of us walk through the grocery store, tossing things in our carts, assuming that if a product can make it to the shelves then is must be safe.
Uhhh…Not so much.
And this is exactly why I’m such a huge proponent of whole, unprocessed foods, and why I work so hard to convince you out of buying diet pills and supplements.
Take a look at this list of FDA food recalls from just the last month. About one-third of the products on this list are pills or protein supplements. Oh, and also, the FDA doesn’t have to approve supplements before they go to market. They just recall them after people start having awful side-effects.
Seems a little backwards, don’t it?
You can read more about my take on supplements in this old blog post, but my point here is just to tell you that this crap is not worth your money. They’re expensive, they can have crazy side-effects, and we have no idea what the long-term repercussions are for most of them.
The only way to sustainable, safe fat-loss is through a healthy lifestyle.
2. They don’t freakin’ work.
If you’re able to get past the potential harm you’re doing to your body with these pills and you STILL want them, then let me convince you with the simple fact that THEY DON’T WORK.
Sustainable fat-loss and physique change are not easily achieved, and they take REAL lifestyle changes, not just “magic pills”. Any of the people that claim success with these things are changing other parts of their lifestyle at the same time (diet, exercise, sleep, stress), and THOSE changes are what lead to results.
If you want to get healthy and lose fat, I’ll help you, but let’s do it the right way.
I just opened a program geared towards building a lifestyle that will get you the fat-loss and physique change you want in a safe and healthy way.
