The search for fat burning miracles is not new. For many years, people who are unhappy with their weight have been looking for a way to become thin. Often, these “miracles” turn out to be useless. However, the desire is still there and people keep hoping for an easy way to lose weight.
This desire is what drives the creation or discovery of new sensational ways to lose weight. Once it was electric stimulation, then it became acai berry, then maqui berry and lately it’s the raspberry ketone pills that are the craze.
The sad truth is that there are no fat burning miracles. Nothing is going to happen to suddenly melt the pounds away. The solution will not be found in a bottle or in a powder or in a magical supplement or patch. You will not lose fat that way. It’s time to stop waiting for a miracle.
Why Do More Miracles Come All The Time
Being overweight is often accompanied by a great emotional turmoil. People don’t like being fat. They wonder why they are fat and they look for a solution. People try many diet plans and fail to see results and they begin to get desperate. It is this desperation that feeds the “miracle industry”.
Shady marketers are always on the lookout for the next product to sell to the innocent public and the media loves to report on new “weight loss breakthroughs” because this stuff gets good ratings. Marketers of weight loss products and the media don’t always cooperate fully, but they do help each other even if no money changes hands between them. The media gets more ratings and the marketers see a massive spike in the sales of their product. It’s a win-win… if you leave out the public. For them it’s simply a big fat loss.
As long as people continue to be desperate and the media goes on feeding the weight loss frenzy with more reports on “miracles” without digging into whether they really work, this is going to continue. It’s just good business.
The Full Cost Of Weight Loss Miracles
All these new and miraculous products have a big cost for the people who buy them. Not only the actual cost of purchasing these products. It goes beyond that.
Putting aside the potential health risks of diet products, there is still a big secondary cost to all these products. I’m talking about the emotional cost.
On the emotional level, you get a lot of people who are hoping for a real solution. In fact, they’re sure that they found it. They eagerly wait for it to arrive, the open it, they try it out… and they fail to get results, at least long term ones. This leads to a great disappointment and the failure may cause some people to believe that they can’t lose weight. Some may even eat more due to the emotional strain.
In addition, all these products, despite having disclaimers that recommend them, make it seem like there is less need for good eating habits and a regular workout routine. By doing this, these products may actually undermine the long term health of their customers.
Time To Face The Reality
The reality is that there are no fat burning miracles and they aren’t going to be. You are not going to lose weight without a big effort, without a real life change. You will need to work at it. If you keep looking for a miracle you will never succeed.
So, save your money for a gym membership or some dumbbells. Learn how to eat right. Be ready for a long journey. You don’t need a miracle to lose weight. You just need to want it hard enough and be ready for the challenge.
