When she could not look at herself naked in a mirror, could not wear her favorite clothes and felt depressed, she decided to lose weight. It was hard for her to forget, what we are all bombarded with on a daily basic – the images of professionally airbrushed or seemingly perfect female bodies.
What is a girl to do? She figured seeking professional help could be a solution to her dream body in six weeks. Don’t we all dream about shedding fat and building muscle in measly 6 weeks?
Little did she know that most professional nutritionists are still preaching what basically amounts to a “hippie diet”. Not surprisingly, that is what she got from her nutritionist.
Nutritionist Ade Samuels suggests a strict diet: lots of oily fish, no sugar, no red meat, no alcohol and only one shot of caffeine a day. He is also fond of oats, fruit smoothies, pumpkin seeds and tofu.
I would run to McDonalds on a second day on this diet, but she decided to tough it out. They also promised her to improve her strength and posture through weight lifting. As expected, she got a typical collection of faddish exercises.
I do a lot of lunging, a huge number of lateral raises and often find myself sitting on a Swiss ball.
At his peak, Arnold Schwarzenegger would not start his workout unless a gym had at least twenty-five multi-colored Swiss balls lying around. After receiving seven Mr. Olympia titles, he credited his success to a huge number of lateral raises and prolonged sitting on a Swiss ball.
Not, but the dogma must live on. Ignorant of effective exercises the poor thing pressed on. Later on, she spirals into juice fasting and develops an eating disorder. Food cheating becomes her ultimate rush.
â€¦I head straight for a local patisserie and gorge on a choux bun filled with cream. My mind almost explodes with pleasure.
Apparently unaware of what caused the whole ordeal she seems to blame her inability to follow so-called expert advice.
I disregarded expert advice and cheated by juice-fasting. I had to sign over my old life, turn exercise into my day job, stop socialising and ended up weeping a lot.
At the end she buys into a myth of celebrities having more time and resources to get in shape, still credits her team of experts with her weight loss, and states that acceptance of acute insanity is a must to lose weight. [via Daily Mail]
