I was squatting over the toilet (it builds leg muscles, okay?) in the locker room at the gym when I saw the flyer and had an official meltdown: "Super Slim Pomegranate... shed massive levels of body weight... easy weight loss... new, easy solution to your perfect body... no dieting or gym requirements needed for fast weight loss."slim pomegranate diet pills
Are you currently serious? People really fall with this stuff? And why would a fitness center be promoting something that discourages gym memberships? As my grandmother would say, "What's this world coming to?"
Then I came home, jumped on Facebook and came across an advertising of Thin Stick, something that is supposed to lessen cravings and promote weight loss.
Okay, I was seriously about to truly have a major meltdown, when I acquired the newest issue of Intelligent Life and was transported to a place where real women eat real food without all of the drama. Yes, I'm referring to France, where the women don't get fat, and they eat chocolate.
The French culture has instilled self-respect and self-love to the fabric of one's life. It is really a culture that doesn't mind indulging, realizing that food is just one of many indulgences that can be purchased in an abundant universe. They slow down and enjoy life, not slow down good enough to eat, then beat themselves up, then work 80+ hours a week, and then feel guilty about not spending time with the kids, which includes them rushing to the fridge to stuff another negative emotion down.
They trust the rhythm of life, but most importantly, they trust themselves.
However, our culture has taught us never to trust our innate wisdom. Instead, we turn to so-called "experts" who seem to have contradicting theories about how exactly to feed our bodies. We're treated like mad animals that have to be protected from ourselves. Why does it not believe we can be trusted around a dish of brownies or mom's homemade mac and cheese? I'll inform you why. There's HUGE money in keeping us deprived and then unleashing us into an environment of food where we're emotionally and physically starving. Then, like knights in the night, they throw us a Thin Stick to save lots of the day, which, in addition, isn't free.Super Slim Capsule
Women (I'm screaming over here), figure out how to trust yourselves and not the experts. You do not need Super Slim or Thin Stick. The thing you need is always to love yourself, and sometimes which means broccoli and other times, it might mean an item of red velvet cake. Many times, it's not food at all, but a more deeply need that may never be filled if you are chasing "slimness" with a Thin Stick.
OK... I feel a lot better now. The meltdown has concluded.
