People are using Facebook and other social media to try and steal from you!
Got your attention? It’s that time of year again when I am seeing lots of posts on the selling pages advertising magic pills, potions and wraps along with claims that they will help you to lose weight, fast, with no real effort at all.
Sorry but at best these claims are greatly overstated, most are outright lies. The pushers of these products are preying on your insecurities and our basic human flaw of wanting to be slim but still eat cakes and drink booze without consequences. No matter how much we want to believe these claims they are just not true.
So keep your money in your pocket.
The only guaranteed route to weight loss is the consume less calories and be more active. I know it’s boring but it’s the truth. You don’t have to give up all the things you like just be more aware of your diet and make some sensible choices about your daily food intake, save the cake for special occasions and try to walk or cycle more and use the car less. Cut down on the time you spend watching TV and fill your evenings with some other activity that gets you on your feet. Small changes can make a big difference over the long term.
Stop wishing to be slimmer by this Christmas and take action NOW to be slimmer by next Christmas.
Have a very wonderful Christmas and I wish you all good health.
