Many so-called "authorities" that you will find on weight loss will try to convince you that their products can help you lose weight, get in shape, and maintain the fitness level and body image that you desire without much hard work, research, or cost on your part. If you simply pay for their over-priced product, whether it is pills, an electro-shock musculature system, a new diet consistently of pickles, or a contraption made of pulleys and levers that you can stick in your basement and use for five minutes everyday these scam artists claim that they can transform you into a Greek god or goddess with abs of steel, buns of titanium, and rock hard arms that can crush boulders into gravel.
I'm here to let you in on the biggest "little secret" of all in the weight loss world: they're all a bunch of phonies. Sorry to burst your bubble, but it takes more than 5 minutes a day of squatting with a flex-master to some old VHS tapes with a picture-perfect doxie dancing around in skin-tight leotard. Getting into shape takes more than jamming pills made of spinach and kelp, and hoping for the best. No, to truly forge the body that you want takes the crucible of hard work, iron will, and the determination of an eagle.
To lose weight in the most scientific, effective way requires one thing, and one thing only: perseverance. You have to try eat right, which includes a diet of primarily fruit and vegetables, grains and bread, and lots of water, while limiting your dairy and meat intake. Plus cut out the junk food, and steer clear of anything that is processed! In addition to only eating fresh, healthy food, you have to work out.
I know, nobody wants to hear this, but it is the straight goods: to be in shape you have to work out, and you have to work out every day, increasing your heart rate by at least 50% from your resting level, for twenty minute intervals, twice a day, in order to unlock your body's natural "fat burning" potential, increase your metabolism, and lose weight the natural way.
