America today is suffering from being overweight and beyond. The percentage of overweight adults in the US has continued to climb up over the past years. Now, about 35% of the adult population is overweight. The main contributing factor for this is the lifestyle of the citizens in the land of the plenty-it’s making almost everyone plenty fat.
Because of that, pharmaceutical companies, fitness equipments manufacturers, fitness instructors, dieticians, and everyone related to weight loss products and services have taken advantage of this heavy-weight problem and put up every products and services they can because they know that the fish will definitely take the bait.
But what you need to understand is that an effective weight loss campaign does not depend on pills, equipments, and other weight loss services. Your chances of success are entirely up to you. If you still want to purchase pills to help you lose weight, look for products that have undergone substantial studies. User reviews are never a good way to size up the product and the testimonials are even worse.
If reviews are all you have, what you need to look for are the product reviews that show not only the pros of the product but also some cons. The review must be neutral and geared towards guiding consumers about the product and not guiding the consumers to the product. Looking at a neutral review is easy but looking for an advertisement-turned-review is even easier.
Aside from pills, exercise programs are also being sold now. To choose the best weight loss exercise program, you must be very meticulous about details. There are many people out there claiming to have come up with the guaranteed weight loss program that no one has ever thought of before, so it’s best to be careful.
Before you go wasting your money on some useless e-books whose contents could have been easily downloaded for free from the internet, you have to know which exercise program can create fast noticeable results. And it is the high intensity interval training (HIIT). This is a type of training composed of short exercises that alternate high intensity exercise with moderate intensity exercise at a 2:1 ratio. It is done less often compared to low intensity, slow and steady pace exercises but still produce great results in losing fat, and at the same time, toning you up.
If you’re planning to buy an e-book for an exercise program, look for the credentials of the trainer or the proponent. Many of these so-called “creators” do not possess the necessary credentials and just put stuff together that they think are good exercises or just copy exercise routines from someone else, made a few changes, and it’s theirs. You also have to check if the program makes outrageous promises. 99% of the time, those are empty words.
Dieting programs are also made a business now. If you’re planning to choose one to give you a detailed dieting instruction and guide, choose only those that don’t completely restrict any nutrient intake, like fats and calories. Starving yourself will only make your body compensate which makes effective weight loss impossible. What you need is a dieting program that still balances the major food groups and provides you with the necessary nutrients while putting the body in a negative state of balance.
