If something is too good to be true then it usually is! Unfortunately fitness scams keep popping up everywhere in the world. Most of them are from unqualified people whether it would be from a personal trainer to a nutritionist.
Here’s one thing: you want to lose the weight by XXX amount of weeks for a wedding or a special event! Its all fine and dandy but within that period of time you might not lose much.
We all know that weight loss is hard work and very time consuming.
MLM scams (excluding Herbalife)
Unfortunately they are legal.
But many of them are get rich quick schemes and lose the weight quick schemes.
But Herbalife is a great company with their sports range and I find that they are quite useful along with real food. Whilst I am happy to be their customer I don’t like the recruiting and selling process. This is time consuming and I have lost a few friends along the way.
Very skinny models on Instagram
Unfortunately there are many and that’s how people develop an eating disorder. They have those six pack abs and muscles and people get so jealous of it. They also promote some bad advice.
As for chiukatherine on Instagram there are no skinny models on her profile but there are lots and lots of food and parks and moods. And no she doesn’t like the whole hype thats out there
Make sure that you have a chance to see what they are like on the gym floor before signing up to that package.
The “Its not your fault that you are fat”
It completely is. You are in control of your own body. You know what works and what doesn’t. A lot of the very pushy people will use this tactic to sell you something that you don’t need.
