Everyone loves the lure of a "quickie" result, and many people are vulnerable to buying so-called "solutions" that market themselves as providing "quick results".
FACT: In the case of weight loss, it simply isn't actually feasible: the weight didn't go on "overnight", neither will it come off "overnight".
(Note: for those so-called "solutions" that are actually "super-low-calorie diets", one should NEVER throw one's body into "starvation" mode - that's a guaranteed recipe for stalling out and weight REGAIN.)
Also, the ONLY REAL WAY to actually KEEP the weight off after losing it is adopting a lifestyle change of eating less/more wisely and exercising more, as well as acknowledging that as one grows older, maintenance also means dropping one's average caloric intake by a (small!) amount each year.
THAT IS REALITY. It's not "harsh", it's just fact.
