Speaking of “didn’t work” — this is sort of a pet peeve of mine. When i get asked which supplement is best for you and you say that you’ve tried others and they “didn’t work”. What exactly does that mean? Did you NOT lose weight? Did the supplement not do what it was supposed to? Did it not work with your plan? Did you not have a plan?? Some people look at me like i’m cray!… Seriously!!
And here comes my rant for the week! =) So, you say a supplement didn’t work. Most (not all) will say “well, i didn’t lose weight when i took those other supplements”. Ok, that’s fine. What supplement were you taking and what is it for? Well, ya there’s a ton of supplements out there and yes, they all do something different. What have YOU done to help your weight loss? That supplement you just spent 60 bucks on is to 1. HELP CURB YOUR APPETITE SO YOU DON’T OVER EAT 2. HELP GIVE YOU MORE ENERGY SO THAT YOU MAY MOVE MORE OR GET THROUGH A WORKOUT 3. GIVES YOU FOCUS TO REACH YOUR GOALS 4. HELPS DETOX YOUR BODY 5. HELPS YOUR SUGAR CRAVINGS 6. HELPS YOUR MOOD SWINGS 7. HELPS YOUR BLOATING 8. HELPS YOU SLEEP BETTER AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON AND ON.
I’m going to be blunt here……if you’re taking a supplement AND NOT MAKING ANY OTHER CHANGE —- you’re wasting your money! Just don’t do it! Supplements are just that, supplements. They supplement your body with things you may or may not get through regular food. Supplements are designed to assist your body with things you need help with.
Here’s the kicker, if you do your part, MOST of those supplements will work in the manner in which they were intended to work! Look at the labels, ask questions. What are your goals with your journey? Do you want to fit back into those jeans comfortably? Ok then you may want to try a fat burner.. But don’t complain when your jeans are fitting good and you didn’t lose a pound on the scale. Fat burners will more than likely help you lose inches more than pounds. If you want to lose pounds…. go by the theory calories in, calories out. YOU NEED TO WORK TO SEE PROGRESS. THERE IS NO MAGIC PILL! This is a lifestyle change. There is no quick fix. (wait, i shouldn’t say that. sure you can do a 3 day detox diet and shit your brains out to lose that 5 pounds before that wedding next weekend but i guarantee you that once you go back to your old ways that weight will come right back on!)
Was that a little harsh? Sorry, that’s the truth. A good outcome means a good plan, dedication, commitment and in the end is most likely SUCCESS. Would you go to college without a plan? Would you go to your classes without your books? would you buy your books and not read them? No, of course not. The same theory with your weight loss plan.
