Weight Loss Gimmicks
Don’t Fall For These Weight Loss Gimmicks!
Have you heard about the new weight loss patch? You wear it behind your ear, and it speeds up your metabolism and helps you control your appetite.
It sounds pretty reasonable, doesn't it? After all, if someone had told you five years ago that you could quit smoking by sticking a circle of fabric on your skin would you have believed them?
this one isn't true. According to Dr. Michael Myers, who maintains the popular web site weight.com, it's just another of the hoaxes that clever promoters are using to bilk you out of your money. Weight loss is a gold mine, and unscrupulous operators will use
any gimmick to convince you that their product is the magic cure that will melt away your pounds without any effort on your part.
Here are a few of the current weight loss gimmicks and the truth about them.
Transdermal delivery of medication is a reality, and there are certain medications that are absorbed readily through the skin. However, the most common active ingredient used in diet patches
on the market is 'fucus vesiculosus', seaweed that is a major source of iodine. Iodine was once a recommended treatment for obesity, because it helps promote healthy thyroid function. It was abandoned because of side effects and the untoward effects when
treatment with iodine ceases. In other words, it's an outdated medication being revived for delivery in a new way.
Wash your fat away with slimming soap!
The claim is that this is an ancient Chinese soap that contains a unique blend of ingredients derived from seaweed which will 'emulsify' the fat. Further, it comes in several different versions, including one that is specifically
meant to give you 'beautiful thighs'. In all truth, the ingredients sound like they'd do a lovely job of softening and toning your skin, but there's not an ounce of research quoted anywhere that can be checked for the results. Until I see the proof, I'll just
figure that any weight loss resulted from vigorous scrubbing - not the ingredients!
Magnetic Weight Loss... earrings
earrings. According to the press, it's another ancient Chinese Secret that has to do with balancing the magnetism in the body. By wearing a magnet near the ear, you can suppress hunger, increase metabolism, speed up the healing process and reduce pain.
Again, though there's mention of 'studies', none are cited, and I couldn't find any in any medical journals. It won't kill you, at least, and the earrings are pretty, but I wouldn't put much stock in their weight loss properties.
All of these new weight loss discoveries should be filed in the “Yeah right” file, right next to sauna wraps, copper bracelets, and electro-slimming belts. If it sounds too good to be true, remember, it probably is.
The only gimmick to weight loss is to eat less and move more!
Looking better and feeling great may be their own rewards when you lose weight, but it never hurts to reward yourself for reaching goals and sticking to your eating plan.
Building in incentives is a time-honoured way of helping keep you on track.
Did you pass up that piece of cheesecake at lunch?
yourself with a pot of fresh herbs!
Did you get out and exercise for your daily half-hour?
Take a luxurious bath with scented oils.
Went the whole week without falling off your new routine?
That calls for a big reward! Treat yourself to an evening out, or buy that book you've been dying to read.
Need some excuses for rewarding yourself?
Try setting one of these goals to give yourself something
to shoot for:
1. Weight loss goals.
traditional here - treat yourself to something special whenever you can mark off ten pounds toward your goal weight. Get a manicure to make you feel extra special.
2. Look, Ma, I dropped a whole size!
Well, that certainly calls for buying yourself something in that new size, even if it's just a pair of new exercise sneakers!
3. Whew! I made it ALL the way through the half-hour workout without stopping ONCE!
Now that's impressive! Call your best friend or your mom and brag - or just chat. Even if it's long distance.
I didn't do it! That chocolate chip cookie dough sundae was calling my name, but I turned my back and walked away.
In that case, don't you think you deserve fresh flowers for your desk or dressing
5. I finally fit into THAT dress or slacks!
I'd say that calls for wearing it out somewhere special, wouldn't you? Take yourself out dancing to show it off!
I lost weight for the third week in a row. I'm so proud of myself!
Here's an ongoing reward - for every pound you lose, drop a dollar or two into a jar, and watch the money build up.
Entertain yourself with plans on how you'll spend it when you reach your goal weight.
7. I got stuck
for three weeks, but I finally budged from that plateau!
I'll tell you what - sticking to a diet when you're not seeing results is one of the hardest things that you'll ever do.
Get yourself something that will make it easier to reward yourself.
For example, buy a blender for whipping up frozen fruit smoothies.
8. I'm halfway there!
You deserve a Halfway Party, don't you think? Pull out all your old fat clothes and try
them on so you can feel great about how far you've come.
9. I've been slugging away forever, and I'm starting to get discouraged...
Okay, so it's not a 'reward' situation -- but it is. You deserve a reward for sticking to it this long. Want a quick pick-me-up? Pick up the phone and get together with someone you haven't seen in months.
This will guarantee that you’ll receive compliments at how great you look!
10. I did it! I made it!
I reached my goal weight!!
Well, my friend, that calls for pulling out the stops! Remember that money you've been paying yourself for losing weight?
to cash it in for something fabulous!
Eating healthy and losing weight are gifts that you give yourself, though they may not feel like it at first. By rewarding yourself along the way, you’ll not
only increase the chances of your success, but you’ll enjoy the process a whole lot more!
Now that covered quite a few different do’s and don’ts with your efforts.
Don’t forget to reward yourself, the satisfaction of receiving rewards will compensate for any (so-called) suffering along the way. Smile and be happy within yourself.
