Almost everyone wants it.
You may have put on a few pounds or you may have been struggling with trying to get rid of a little extra “winter insulation” that just won’t go away.
You may have been struggling with your weight for years and need to lose quite a bit. Perhaps your doctor has told you to lose some weight for health reasons.
“Weight Loss”. Surprise - this is not what we really want. Read on to find out why.
We just accept weight loss as something positive and I’m going to tell you that it is definitely not all positive. In fact there can be serious consequences that you may never have realized.
This term has been thrown around for decades. We don’t even think to question it.
Anyone with body fat automatically believes that it is exactly what they need. “I’ve gotta lose a few pounds” is a common theme.
The dietary weight loss industry is comprised of companies that get you to control your food intake.
And they have you regularly weigh yourself.
And when your scale goes down, you generally feel good about it. If it goes down a lot you usually will feel great about it.
They get you to focus is only on pounds.
Food intake control methods are often effective at producing a loss of body fat.
I have no problem with that. It is a good thing.
Here’s the problem: a significant component of the pounds you lose by those dietary weight loss methods are from loss of muscle.
Plus, since muscle is a heavy, dense tissue and fat is a light fluffy tissue, you only need to lose a small amount of muscle to make up a significant number of pounds. But you’ll need to lose quite a bit of fat to lose a significant number of pounds.
But, losing muscle is a very negative thing indeed.
I have yet to hear from anyone who wants to lose some muscle. Although I’m sure that there are many who would accept it as part of the price of becoming thinner.
There are many people who are using scooters, walkers and canes and who are in their 40’s and 50’s. Mostly these ages are too young for these assistance devices.
I suspect that many of those people have unknowingly dieted away part of their leg muscles in pursuit of weight loss.
Everyone I have spoken with about this who are in the process of pursuing weight loss will invariably say that they are really after loss of body fat.
And if they can improve their physical conditioning at the same time, that would be an awesome bonus!
And that is exactly what the Wellness Belt does to you.
I have received hundreds of calls telling me that the Wellness Belt doesn’t work because they have experienced a 5 or 10 pound weight gain shortly after starting to use it.
In almost every case, there has been a corresponding tightening of the Wellness Belt – signifying a loss of inches at the hips.
What is happening to them? Well, they have simply gained muscle and lost fat.
When I explain what is going on, it’s interesting that people already know it and understand the concept, but the term “weight loss” is powerful and it overwhelms their reasoning power.
When they realize that weight loss implies muscle loss and worsening physical fitness, they will choose fat loss with improved conditioning every time.
I encourage people to measure themselves regularly instead of weighing themselves. It is a more objective measure of their progress and is a healthier goal overall.
When you gain muscle and lose fat, like with the Wellness Belt or working out at the gym, what exactly does your new weight tell you anyway? Does that number mean something?
Perhaps we should initiate an “Inches Loss” industry and throw the term “Weight Loss” on the ash heap of history.
So if you want a method of automatically losing body fat while gaining muscle – particularly in the abdomen and legs, try the Wellness Belt.
