I decided to write this blog post after watching a video this morning that really upset me. Disgusted me even. There are people in this community that have zero respect for their followers, and fill their heads with endless lies just to line their own pockets. The worst part is, some of these people used to be excellent representatives of the keto community. Now its all about making a quick buck at the expense of their fans.
If you are new to keto or a lowcarb lifestyle, please, for the love of all that is holy in this world, heed my words. YOU DO NOT NEED PILLS, SUPPLEMENTS, WRAPS, CREAMS, ETC to lose weight. What these companies (and people) are selling you is not for the greater good. All they are doing is preying on the ones who feel like they have no where else to turn. Who haven’t done their research. Who are looking for a quick fix. Please, I beg you. Don’t be mislead into thinking you need these things to succeed in your journey. You don’t. You can accomplish every single goal you have set in place for yourself all on your own. Sure its hard. Sure its a mental and physical struggle. But that’s what this community is here for. For support, encouragement, advice, help, a shoulder to cry on, to vent to. Everything you need is right here in this community. Not in a bottle of pills or a 350 dollar supplement.
I was once fooled by this shiny new toy. Was excited to be noticed. But was kicked to the curb when I wasn’t “popular” enough. This journey is not a popularity contest. Its peoples lives they are messing with. It’s people’s health. But they don’t give a damn because they can sleep soundly at night knowing their bills are paid. Eating healthy is already expensive enough. So why waste your money on something that isn’t going to do anything for your body anyway. All this stuff is is another contributor to yo yo dieting. For kicks lets say that this stuff actually worked. You pay the ridiculous money every month, or however often they shove it down your throat. Its not realistic. Why bother making a change you don’t plan to keep? Its temporary and pointless. A lifestyle change starts with YOU. You can’t live of supplements forever, let alone pay for them forever.
All this aside, please, just do your research. Don’t rely on just one source either. There is so much good information out there to get your hands on. Not all of it is completely accurate. But if you get the honest basics, then you’re already passed the finish line.
I tell you all this because I care about and respect each and every one of you. I do my best to answer any questions that are ever asked to me on my IG or blog or email. I do get busy sometimes and I do miss things. So if that ever happens, send me an email or a DM on instagram. I will never dismiss you and tell you to go buy something to find your answer. I am not perfect, by any means. But I am here to help you, along with so many other amazing people in this community who have done this lifestyle naturally. You can do this, I promise.
