TV & Diets - I'M NOT BUYING!!
Saturday, January 05, 2013
January always brings the push of commercials for Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem and so many others. These programs work for thousands of people. CBS, NBC, ABC, Reality TV, they all are showing stories about great losses, what has worked, what to do, how to do it, etc. This morning a lady was interviewed. She had lost over 100 pounds on her own. She set mini goals, researched nutrition and started exercising.
Last night on one of the shows (I think 20/20) there was a story about ACAI Berry (not sure the spelling) and how the company and marketers made millions on fake advertising for weight loss. So many people are looking for the easy road to weight loss. I was one of them. I went on those on-line sites and almost pulled out my credit card. At some point, I decided that I am not buying one more diet book, I am not buying the pills or suppliments that promise "something". It comes down to calories in and calories out!
My weapon of choice is Sparkpeople.com! I thank you great people out there who help thousands or even millions of others.
Find what works for you. Be Stong! Stay With It. WE WILL REACH OUR GOALS!!
