There is No Quick Fix

Warning… Rant ahead… Ok, so I’ve seen so many people posting about “quick fix” diets or weight loss options… I honestly don’t know much about all of them because there are seriously SO many! Wraps, pills, patches, teas,…. There are so many because people want a quick fix. Well guess what… there is no quick fix! It took a long time to gain weight… sometimes a lifetime…. it is going to take time and work to get that weight off and to be healthy.. .

Honestly dieting and losing weight might be one of the hardest things for people to do. Partly because it’s not simple.  It is actually very complicated.  Often it is related to other things that we’re not even aware of.  It could be a comfort thing, emotional, it could be that we’ve never actually been taught what proper nutrition or exercise actually consists of.  We could have eating habits from childhood, or subconscious eating habits that we’re completely u
