If your Facebook feed is anything like mine, it is littered with fitness ads for the latest quick fix. Be that a workout program or a magic pill. The issue is, there is so much out there that the water has become murky. How can a person distinguish between what’s true and what’s a scam? The amount of fitness material is daunting, but we’d like to provide some clarity.
The advertisements that turn the most heads usually consist of a quick fix and guaranteed results. “Lose 20 Pounds in 20 Days”, “7 Day Detox”, “Shake Yourself Skinny”. Unfortunately, many who try these quick fixes or fad diets often lose a ton of weight, however, are unable to keep it off. Why? These quick fixes are not maintainable, sustainable, and are often unhealthy. Can a person lose 20 pounds in 20 days? Sure! However, this isn’t going to fix the root of the problem. The “quick fix” is like taking Tylenol for a headache. The headache is still there, but the medicine numbed the pain.
So what is the long term solution? Habits. If you drink only weight loss shakes for a month, of course you will lose weight, however, your habits will not have changed and you will most likely go back to your old ways. The solution is simple, not easy. A customized nutrition plan and personalized workout regimen is the best way to go. It will result in a controlled weight loss that is maintainable. Weight loss that is not the result of starving your body, but nourishing yourself properly for your lifestyle. It’s about building healthy habits that are sustainable in the long term.
Unfortunately, there is no one size fits all answer in terms of your fitness. Depending on a person’s aspirations, the regiment needs to be tailored to a person’s individual needs. The mother of 2 that wants to feel confident in a bikini will require a different nutrition and exercise protocol from the senior football player that is gunning for a college scholarship. A combination of personalized nutrition and exercise is the best method to help each person achieve their goals.
For this type of workout plan, asking for help is a great idea! An expert’s tailored approach, coupled with shear grit and determination is the fastest, healthiest, and longest lasting “Magic Pill” on the market.
