Let’s be honest with ourselves – at some point in our lives, we have all done it. We’ve all fallen into the clever marketing campaigns telling us how we can look and feel amazing in just a short period of time by taking a single supplement or following a precise nutrition plan. Some even claim to help cure specific health conditions!
When looking into certain plans, they often provide ‘research’ which is fabricated, claims which are unfounded by scientific evidence and some may even put is in a far more unhealthy condition than when where started.
With all these things aside, somewhere down the line, maybe 2 weeks, maybe 2 months… we aren’t seeing the results they promised. We have followed the plan to the T! And yet that magical loss or gain we were hoping for? Not yet in sight.
I myself have fallen into these traps, and still remember buying various magazines trying the latest and greatest workout to build up and lean back down in 6 weeks – all ending the same way, wasted money, little result and stress and frustration because things aren’t working.
This is what happens in life when we try to make drastic quick changes in our life for a short period of time in an attempt to lose weight or build muscle. Then when it doesn’t happen, or stalls and we can no longer go anywhere, we get tired, frustrated, lose motivation and confidence – and ultimately it all falls apart.
However, there is a solution that does work for a long time. In fact, it can work for you for the rest of your life! But here’s the problem with it… it isn’t pretty, it doesn’t have fancy names or logos, it requires hard work and takes a while to achieve – but is has a whole host of evidence behind it, from physical improvements to psychological wellbeing, even improving your everyday health so you can have a greater quality of life.
