The first article that came up was titled “The 14 Best Ways to Burn Fat Fast”
You get my point- there’s a LOOOOT of information out there when it comes to fat loss. Unfortunately, I think there’s a lot of people who hit up a Google search, click on the 1st result they see, and give it a go.
Now, it might yield them some success, especially in the first few weeks. (This is simply because making change - ANY change - almost always yields a result.) But aside from that, I’d place a heavy bet on the fact that long-lasting change isn’t gonna happen.
Why am I so sure about this?Because the important question that most folks do not ask before they start a weight loss, fat loss, or fitness program is
“But will it work for me?”
In other words: Is this program or approach conducive to my lifestyle? Does it match with my current fitness level? Does it take into account my past injuries or medical considerations? Is it fun or desirable to me? Has it been researched and studied for success and safety, or is it a new fad?
Look, I realize that for a lot of people, the final outcome [being stronger, more toned, faster, fitter, etc] is what’s desirable. The process by which all of that is achieved, however, isn’t as desirable or fun. It’s simply a means to an end. (At least that’s the mentality for folks at the start.) So, the question “but will it work for me?” is CRUCIAL to ask… otherwise, you’re just starting out on a journey that will inevitably end in grief and disappointment.
When you’re ready to take the 1st steps on your fitness/wellness transformation, be certain to ask yourself this question… and if you’re in a gym or fitness studio, ask the professional as well! Anyone who is selling you a membership, program, or package should be able to explicitly tell you exactly why what they’re selling will work for you.
If you need help navigating through, let me know. I would be happy to help.
