I just wanted to weigh in with my opinion on diets and weight loss gimmicks...because we have all heard the old saying..If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is..And I think the same thing holds true in the multi-billion dollar a year industry of diet products!
It seems every day they come out with a new pill or a lose weight quick gimmick..and if any of them actually worked the way they were supposed to..we wouldn't have a site like spark and the problem would have long since been solved!...The truth of the matter..in my humble opinion..is nothing can replace good old common sense!..Nothing worth having comes easily..and it shouldn't..because if it were that easy..we wouldn't appreciate it!...that includes good health...along with self confidence..self esteem..looking good..Take for instance you are getting ready to get on an airplane and the pilot hasn't really had adequate training or put the work in to make him competent...but he was confident about his ability..all the way to the crash landing site..a little graphic of an analogy I imagine..but the point is there is no short cuts in life..no miracle cure..we have to put the work in one way or another if we want to be something..whether it is thin and beautiful..or big and strong...even with the "shortcuts" out there..there are always costs..and some of them do more damage than just buckling down and putting in the work.
The good part of doing it the old fashioned way with hard work and self control are these are attributes that can also translate positively in our everyday lives..
Good luck on the journey!!!
