Do you have a friend that lost a ton of weight on some fad diet? You get super excited and run out and buy everything! You read all the information, set yourself up for success, put your entire self into your new diet follow the instructions exactly like you’re told and the results are nothing like your friends?
That has happened to me more than once! Why? Why, are your results on a diet that sounds full of potential and your friend had success with it, but it did nothing for you?
You are not a failure; you did everything to set yourself up for success, but here’s the thing. One size does not fit all. Oh, and the most critical piece of information your friend may not have told you. There is NO SECRET PILL! Or product.
So now you’re left wanting to get back in shape, get healthy, and improve your quality of life. How do you navigate through the crazy product online jungle to find something that works for you? Let’s go through the current trend of options trending on the internet today.
The Diet Trends
There is a Ketogenic Diet which is a high-fat, low-carb diet, it is responsible for some impressive weight loss transformations, but is also very difficult to follow, and hardly a lifestyle choice. I gained 6 lbs on the keto diet and had a hard time processing all the fats because I had my gallbladder removed many years ago. Again, one size doesn’t fit all.
What about the Paleo Diet? Similar to Keto, but the “Caveman diet” is different in many ways. Proponents of Paleo say that eliminating gluten and consuming more veggies can reduce inflammation in the body. It didn’t work for me; it was tough to keep up with this trending diet daily. When you take on a trendy diet like this one and are not able to sustain them for the life you end up regaining most of the weight you may have lost.
The next one trending right now is Whole 30, developed as an elimination diet to help people figure out how foods impact them physically and mentally, the central premise is to eat nothing but veggies, fruit, nuts, and meat for 30 days. This diet was my favorite diet trend, not because I lost weight, but because it helped me eliminate most sugars from my diet. I didn’t lose any weight.
I could list hundreds of more trending diets, and I wasn’t understating the amount of currently trending diets flying around the internet today.
Today the United States weight loss industry is currently a $72 BILLION business! Obesity in the United States has gone from 23% in 1962 to 65.7% today, ad in 2020 they estimate that over one-third of the population will be overweight. How is this possible with all the diets, flying around?
When you’re searching online for a recipe? Diet? Health or Nutrition information. Buyer BEWARE! There are people out there that will take advantage of your desire to find answers. I call them product pushers. They don’t care about you, your results, or your goals. They are selling a product, and that is the bottom line.
How many times have you jumped into a diet program to only be sent a bunch of video’s to watch and links to articles, when you thought you were getting support from the person you hired? There are products out there that are awesome, and I use a lot of them. I do my do-diligent though, I research, ask questions, find out what the return policy is and most important. I make sure that when I start using a product, it comes with someone who shows’s up when I have questions.
One size does not fit all, and whoever you work with needs to know more about your personal needs. Why are you struggling from diet to diet? When your friend Lexi lost tons, and you struggled with it. You did not fail; you were just on the wrong lifestyle change.
Your diet should be something that isn’t anything like a diet! It should be a complete lifestyle chose. Why did those other diets not work for me, they were too hard to sustain. For me, because that size did not fit my lifestyle.
Find a coach that fit’s your size, your needs. Make sure that why you hire them, they are not just putting you into a program that throw’s videos and links at you. Hire a coach that shows up for you and keeps showing up for you! When they share a product with you, ask questions, and be informed. The product shouldn’t be your lifestyle choice but a tool to help you move towards your goals.
When I started my companies Health Influencer’s Mastermind and Best Holistic Life, it was with people just like you in mind, when I was sick, desperate for health answers, and terrified of dying. I went online, looking for holistic health options because modern medicine had failed me. What I found were a lot of “Fake” experts and advice. It was a horrible experience, I did find help, though, but the process wasn’t easy. Nine years later, after, when I started my health coaching business wanting to reach out and help others going through what I went through, was hard! I had the hardest time building trust and rapport with them online because they had already ran into so many “fake” experts.
There is Hope!
I’m here to tell you there is HOPE! There is that needle in a haystack waiting to help you. I have searched the internet for online coaches, who are not only real but at the top of their profession. I went to them and shared my story and found they were fighting the same battle I was, trying to build trust and rapport.
Remember that one size doesn’t fit all we started with on this diet journey? Well, I know that I have a fantastic set of skills and but I am not the right fit for everyone. I was able to bring on board experts who have offered their service to you. A few of them have even come together to provide a 30-day weight loss, detox challenge. They have also agreed after research several products that might work best at getting those results you’ve been searching for.
The difference between what you’ve tried before and what this offers is more than one style of coaching; the most significant difference is these coaches show up for you! They are not setting you in front of video’s or linking you to info. They have created a space for you to come when you need to access them. They have a plan for you, not the masses because you are different. We have doctors of natural medicine, joining in to answer questions.
Do you know what the difference is between you and that friend that lost all the weight on the same diet you gained weight on? You didn’t have us helping you on your journey, creating something that only fits you.
