We see it every day.  We read it in magazines and see it on TV.  The next best thing to help you lose weight and be a healthier person.  And people buy in by the millions.  If they didn’t, the ads and commercials and infomercials would go away.  Don’t you think that there is a reason that these things are aired late at night?  They know that the combination of late night TV, wine and credit cards are a horrible idea.  That’s how my buddy ended up with a house full of knives.  Think about it this way….if any of the “magic” pills, potions and serums worked, do you think that any others would survive in the open market?  Of course not.  If one worked for real, the rest would go away.  We discuss this with our clients every day and still, sometimes, to no avail.  The formula has to do with work and sweat.  Sometimes tears and blood, but they are optional ingredients in the mix.  The truth is is that the magic pill is exercise.  It’s not the formula that anyone wants, because it requires hard work and discipline.  But, like it or not, it IS the answer.  The harder we work, the more results we see.  And we’ve discussed here, that hard work does NOT mean an hour and a half on the elliptical.  No.  Weights and work.  Weights = muscles.  Muscles = increased metabolism.  Increased metabolism = decreased body fat.  Simple.  Straight forward.  Truthful.
