Why is it recently that there are so many body transformation challenges promising big results in rediculously short periods of time? Is there actually care and thought for your long term health or are they just marketing to our vulnarability our vanity and our short attention spans? it’s easy to see that people want to look better and want fast results. Obviously if your diet programme was to lose 12 kg’s in 12 months this would be a good result but hey no one will commit to a diet or contract this long too many things in life could get in the way I mean Brittney Spears marriage only lasted 55 hrs. So companies are marketing to something you can commit to and the most result in the shortest period of time is very appealing. So many kilo’s in 12 weeks or 6 weeks or even 30 days.
Do these diets lose weight? YES
But do the results last? Rarely
Generally what you get when you sign up is a highly restricted calorie defecit diet that generally includes some of their branded products and a prize that keeps you motivated but goes to the person who starves themselves the most. The shorter the period the even less calories. If your lucky they might supply some generic exercise programme to go along with it?
and it works because basic math says less calories in than calories spent = calories lost = weight loss.
I see it time and time again, standing in front of a barbell “I cant do it coach” a meek and mild new athlete says. There’s a heavy weight on the bar more than they’ve ever moved before and the work out calls for them to move it for multiple reps. I’ve seen this athlete move before and I know they are stronger than they know. It’s time to push their limits.
