“It Works!” – Most of us have heard about this magical wrap from someone, or have seen it on social media. This wrap supposedly melts away fat around your stomach in just a few days. Sounds great, right? It is- temporarily.
Whenever I hear about a new product like this in the health/fitness industry, I always think of the old saying; “if it sounds too good to be true, it is.”
“It Works!” wrap promotes sweating, so therefore you are just losing water weight. So when you replenish the amount of salt and water to your body, you are just going to be right back where you started.
Adkins Diet, South Beach Diet, Low Carb Diet, etc., are more examples of temporary solutions. Fad diets involve drastic, temporary changes to your eating routine, that once you stop, you will most likely not only gain back what you lost, but possibly double. Don’t believe me? Check this out.
Our bodies need protein, carbohydrates, fat, sugar, etc., however, these macros should be balanced; according to your age, height, weight, activity level, and so on. An easy and free way to asses your daily required macros is through the app “MyFitnessPal.”
If you want to see and maintain permanent change in weight loss you need to change what you are eating (for good) and partake in more exercise; whether that be lifting, running, walking, whatever you want/like to do. Furthermore, have patience, because it will take time- lots of time for lasting results. Make sure you are being relatively consistent, all while enjoying yourself in moderation. Remember, eating healthy is a lifestyle, not a diet. And nothing in life of value can be attained through shortcuts.
