The pain and frustration of constantly being on a diet and watching everything that you eat sometimes seems too much to bear. While I can sympathize with the disillusionment and disappointed outlook of many dieters, the fact is that we do it to ourselves.
Let’s face it, the idea of a weight-loss product, pill, plan or program that can somehow, almost magically remove those unwanted pounds is very appealing to us. We have instant information from the Web, instant entertainment and fast food that is so much a part of our life today. Why is it unreasonable for us to desire a product that will give us the results we desire without any work or commitment of our own?
Weight-loss product manufacturers and marketers however, are only too happy to design their products to meet those magical desires. While they claim thier product will result in rapid weight loss by eating anything you wish, they hide behind disclaimers such as: ” The statements regarding these products have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.”
We dutifully ignore or minimize this statement and purchase the latest herbal weight-loss patch, wrap, formula, product or diet supplement based on the belief that maybe this latest product will be that magic pill that work for us without any effort on our part. The reality is that many of these products can help us lose weight but we need to be greatly involved to make it happen. When it doesn’t work as hoped we become disillusioned and disappointed with the product and also ourselves. We then tend to beat ourselves up for yet another failure.
Unfortunately, our bodies live in a real physical world. This means that as much as we would like to experience rapid weight loss and very little time without effort, it’s just not going to happen. That herbal patch or weight-loss formula recently purchased may have in fact worked, though not as well is the marketing hype led you to believe. Maybe the whole failure issue is inaccurate when it comes to both an weight loss products and one’s personal dieting efforts.
Possibly the problem is one of setting the right expectation. Although it’s unfair that the weight-loss supplement industry can make wild claims, we need to look beyond those claims and set reasonable expectations for weight loss.
While an herbal patch may work very well at curbing your appetite, by itself, diet supplements will not cause you to lose weight. It would be reasonable to expect that any weight-loss product, be it a wrap, patch, potion, power, pill, plan or program help you reach your desired goal losing weight in a constant rate.
This means that your search for diet weight loss supplements should be seen more as an effort to find a product that will help support your weight loss dieting efforts only. It’s only through our ability to lower the number of calories we eat each day and raise the number of calories we burn each day can we lose weight
