Ugh.... diet drinks.
Hi everyone, my name is ___________, and if you buy my magic diet drink, you too can look like this in 30 days!
Hi everyone, my name is __________, and this brand supplement drink shake___________ will help you lose adipose tissue.
Ugh... vitamin pills.
Hi everyone, my name is ________, and if you take these 4 vitamin pills of these various plant extracts, you too can loose adipose tissue.
Now, let me tell you this: the first one is from 2 friends on facebook...the next 2 are from numerous health coaches I am in contact with from the unnamed course I am doing.
In the last 2 months - the amount of "you too can look this good" from shake users has gone up and up...and lucky me, I get to see it and fume with each and every entry.
The amount of "health coaches" pushing vitamin and mineral supplements, and natural oils and such is also ASTOUNDING in my eyes!
I just can't wrap my little tiny brain around this one... I would NEVER tell anyone to take anything unless I knew for CERTAIN that it wasn't going to jack up my own system.
If they want to take it on their own...go ahead, we will analyze it together and how your body reacts to it...journal it, log it, and determine (through a pre and post blood test results with your doctor) if anything has changed for the better.... but to TELL you and PUSH you to take something because I am in bed with a company for extra money??? Absolutely not.
For you see...I have been there, and done that. I did shakes. I did pills even. The only thing that works is what spark teaches here and what I will be teaching as well....except I will be rounding it out by analyzing the underlying causes and finding out the "Why".... because, people, there is a "Why" in our behavior, even if you don't want to admit it or look for it.
Want a real fix? Look in the mirror. Stare into your eyes. Say "I love you".
Bet money with that one simple act.... you will start crying because we don't tell ourselves enough that we love ourselves because a lot of people just don't love or care enough about themselves the way they should.
Anyway....I rarely unjoin something on FB because I don't want to "hurt" anyone's feelings...but this one is a must, because I just cannot see it everyday.
Will anyone from the group come back on in 4 months and say they were right back where they started???? Nope, probably not.
Is anyone going to read the review they read about liver-damage and tell them that pineapple and cucumber and drinking a ton of water do the same exact thing without hurting the body, and they don't have to pay a company to get it in a tiny "All-natural" chemical pouch??
There should be a SOAP BOX emoticon....because I sure am on it right now.
Anyway...I must have needed to vent this. Do I feel better? Meh... maybe when I leave the group....but on the other hand...that group of people might be a pool for potential clients later on. Business sided brain is saying to stay and just ignore or keep and research the reactions... it's got potential for really helping people when they come down off the drink "high".
Food for thought....that is for certain.
