Dear Mr. or Mrs. Weight Loss Product Pusher,

weight loss supplementsThe fact that I am writing a blog post that is addressing you personally shows that I need to have a few words with you—several hundreds of words actually.

Who am I and what concern do I have with you, you ask? Quite frankly, I'm a former fattie. At 5-feet-2-inches tall and weighing 181 pounds, I was classified as obese by medical standards—a classification that your industry says it's after. "End the Trend" is the motto, right?

While I was fighting my own very personal battle of the bulge, I spent a TON of money on your industry's fitness programs and nutritional supplements. Currently in my DVD collection are Taebo, Turbo Jam, Turbo Fire, Slim in 6, P90X, and T25. I've also used Xyngular, Nutrisystem, Weight Watchers, Innutra, ViSalus, Shakeology, and countless others. Sadly, none of it solved my problem; they didn't "End the Trend" for me.

There's one huge glaring fault with your product and campaign: It's focusing on the wrong problem. Maybe if we stop pushing fitness programs and weight loss supplements down the throats of overweight people, we can implement a true, permanent solution. You do care about helping find a lasting solution, right?

You paid the same kind of money and followed the same fitness and diet plan, right? Why are they now able to bounce around in bikinis and flaunt glorious 6-pack abs while you’re still stuck hiding in baggy sweat pants and billowy t-shirts? Where is your bikini body and 6-pack abs!?!

Weight Loss Programs not Working?Take a deep breath, my friend—the problem is a basic one with a fairly simple solution that isn't going to cost you a thing except maybe the money it takes to buy groceries. Why groceries? Because that’s where your problem lies.

But first, I want you to think of something for a second…

What does every single weight loss program and supplement have in common? What comes along with every fitness and supplement program you ever purchased? Usually a detailed meal plan to follow—or at the very least a nutritional guide. Should you come across a weight loss program or product that doesn't come with at least some basic dietary information to follow, that is a HUGE indicator to not entrust your money, time, and effort into that program! Ninety-nine point nine-nine-nine-nine-nine percent of the time those kinds of programs are SCAMS and should be avoided like the plague. But back to the point…
