There is NO QUICK FIX

Ok peeps, I am sorry to break it to you but there is NO QUICK FIX to weight loss. I just read a post from a fitness blogger and was completely and utterly applaud and the information she is putting out there. Her post was how to lose 10 lbs in a week.

With a Bachelor and Master degree in the field no one should be losing 10 lbs in a week it is completely unhealthy. If you need to lose weight it is a process. You should not severely cut calories and increase your exercise exponentially. This woman claims to haveĀ battled eating disorders, body image issues and being too obsessed with weight loss and exercise that it was not healthy and she posts this crap! I am sorry but for someone who has gone through all this stuff and has half a brain in health and fitness should not be promoting this at all!

If you wish to lose weight you should go about it in a safe way. Which means 1-2 lbs weight loss per week. If you are obese and know you need to lose you may be told that you can lose more than the 1-2 lbs but it should be under the supervision of a physician. Depending on the amount of weight you want to lose per week you should drop your calories by 500 calories per day. Start eating whole foods! Complex carbs, lean protein, fruits and veggies. Ditch the high sugar foods such as soda, candy, sweets. If you have a sweet tooth to help you adjust your way of eating have some fruit with a little bit of honey. Honey is a great sweetener. It has a low glycemic index so releases slowly into the blood stream.

Weight loss is hard, been there done that! I still struggle every day. I was there once I can easily get to that point again. So I watch what I eat, I exercise regularly but nothing extreme! If you have to lose weight for a function PLAN AHEAD!!! Don’t wait until the week before and essentially starve yourself. Please, please, please make sure you are getting all your information from reputable sources. Health and fitness has boomed in the last several and it seems like everyone is trying to make a quick buck to sell you quick weight loss and claim it is safe. If you don’t know ask your doc or seek a professional in the field. Ask tons of questions make you information is true. CHECK THE FACTS!!!
