Waiting For Santa Claus? Not Me! (Diet Supplements)

Tuesday, October 02, 2007

Here is my take on supplements:

If there was ANYTHING out there in the WHOLE wide world that truly worked and effectively, safely turned fat people into healthy people, do you REALLY think there would be any more fat people around?!?!

Secondly, if there WAS an effective, safe supplement that truly promoted weight loss, don't you think there would be SUCH hoopla and media hype far and wide?

The biggest media hype would be supported by the junk food industry: LOOK FOLKS! You CAN have your cake and eat it too and NOT GAIN WEIGHT ANYMORE! Eat to your heart's content! Spend your money on our products, because now THERE'S NO MORE PENALTY OR PRICE TO PAY!

I, for one, am not waiting for Santa Claus, because the answer lies fairly and squarely inside of me.

And perhaps technology and greed will prevail and prove me wrong, but I think it always will...

    I certainly understand where you are coming from regarding diet supplements, with the myriad of different diets and drinks and pills to choose from, but I would like to share with you that I have found a line of supplements that are, in fact, SAFE and EFFECTIVE. They don't claim to be a miracle cure, nor do they guarantee that you will lose weight, because they believe that it is about a lifestyle not about a single pill, drink or diet method. You're right, there is not a supplement that will turn fat people into healthy people, but there are products that can HELP people become healthier along with their own personal 'healthy lifestyle' journey.

    The reason there is not a big "hoopla and media hype far and wide" about these products is because the company is not out to take everyones money based on claims of 'quick weight loss'. The companies that do that, know that if they say it will do what people want it to do, then people across the country will buy it and before everyone figures out the fraudulent claims, they've collected millions of dollars for a product that is useless or even worse, harmful!!! Everyone is looking for a quick fix. Health and weight loss are neither of those things.

    They do not need the media hype. The media will tell you whatever you want to hear. It is disgusting. The proof of the effectiveness of the supplements is in the results. People take the products (not just for weight loss, but for many aspects of health) and they get the results they are expecting...SAFELY. Period. Scientists and doctors developed the products which are manufactured to the highest standards. There are no secrets. You can read about the people involved, the manufacturing standards and processes, the results. No one is trying to hide anything! Well known doctors in the medical community (and some known to the general public lately) stand behind these products. They put their own credibility on the line. I take them, I recommend them to my patients, and my friends and family take them as well. I put my own credibility on the line! That's big for me as a healthcare provider. It's easy to watch TV and let the media tell you what the 'highest bidder' wants you to buy from them. People have to do their homework and find out who's really out there to help, not harm. Just wanted to let you know it's NOT ALL bad!!

    Best of luck to you on your personal 'healthy lifestyle' journey. It looks like you have found what works for you as you continue to shed the pounds (I saw some of your posts on the message boards). Keep up the good work and stay healthy!!
