Weight loss has become a big focus and even an obsession in people’s lives, as a result there are a large amount of supplements, weight loss shakes, powders, pills, fad diets and slimming tea on the supermarket and chemist shelves. Some can be beneficial, others a quick fix. All are considered to be more beneficial with a healthy diet and exercising regularly, like we didn’t know that. That is the point of all the weight loss products, so that we don’t have to go out and get sweaty and don’t have to stop eating chocolate and stuffing our faces with creamy delights.
Women and men want to be able to lose weight without having to actually do any work other than popping a pill or having a slimming tea, perhaps even mixing up a shake that is supposed to taste like chocolate and will replace all that food that is meant to keep you alive. Saves on power and slaving over a hot stove as well, still takes dedication of a sort to give up the snacks and start using that math’s you were taught in highschool but have never actually got around to using. Well now is the time, it is called calorie counting and can occupy most of your day and take the joy out of eating anything. Eating that chocolate biscuit just cost you two points…oops only twenty left, how will you use them have another cookie while you think about it.
The worst thing about the slim tea online in Australia, the fad diets and shakes is the use of herbs to suck you into believing that what you are doing is a good thing and because it is natural can be of no great harm to you. Um ever heard of mushrooms they are a natural, organic fungus that people eat all the time and if you are not careful half of them can kill you. Natural does not mean healthy or harmless in fact some of the world’s deadliest toxins come from plants. If your tongue starts to feel numb or you have sudden convulsions then the consensus is that you are up shit creek and no desperate amount paddling is going to get you out of it.
The population is getting fatter and fatter each year but putting more products on the shelves to lull us into a false sense of security, is not going to solve this problem. Education on health and wellbeing, how even a 30 minute walk a day can make a big difference and actually eating at home instead of dropping by the fast food, will make all the difference in the world and no matter how many slimming tea or shakes you drink, nothing is going to come close to living right, eating well and getting off your couch and occasionally seeing if you can spot your toes.
