You’ll definitely lose weight

 

I was going to start this post with an apology but I don’t owe that to anyone.

As much as I LOVE this industry, and I mean love, unfortunately it has its fair share on con artists.

And yes I’m aware this may cause some upset but it needs to be said!

You know those coaches (if you’d call them that) who “promise” Fat Loss.
Who predict the exact time it will take to lose a certain amount of weight.
Who say they have “found” the answer. Those people who don’t factor in your overall health, yes those people.

You’ve heard them all:

“Fix your metabolism”
“How to melt fat 10 times more”
“The hidden secret to fat Loss”
“Lose 30 lbs in 6 weeks”
“5 day shred”

Now maybe this is a lack of education from these “coaches” but my guess is it’s mainly ignorance and a lack of care for the clients overall health.

So typically these magic programs involve an extremely strict diet plan that you MUST follow or you won’t get results.
This plan includes eliminating this food and that food and simply places you in a huge calorie deficit…ie starving yourself.

Yes, of course you will lose weight, who wouldn’t?!
You then think this coach is a genius as you get an initial drop in bodyweight.
That’s of course until this magic plan becomes unsustainable (trust me it will), and you binge eat putting all that lost weight back up again, and even more in some cases.

It gets worse…you then build a bad relationship with food thinking it’s the enemy and end up malnourished causing all the complications you don’t want:
-Thyroid output slows down
-Testosterone levels drop
-Estrogen levels raise
Etc etc etc

The longer you remain with these problems the more complicated it can get and the worse your health will become.

I’m sure most of you out there trying desperately to lose weight have been conned into multiple weight loss programs in the past.

My advice:
Identify what the real issue is.
Usually it’s an imbalance in energy. Either consuming too many calories or not using enough…and most of the time it’s both.

Hire yourself a real coach.
Someone who cares about you and takes your health into consideration.
As much of a rant this may seem…I must say this industry has some amazing coaches. Some of the best in the world are easily accessible.

Quality coaching is easy come by and comes at a very affordable price these days.

So go invest in your health and see past these con artists 🤓
