The Top Article of the Week
A vast number of people fall prey to the endless array of diets, detoxes, cleanses, extreme exercise regimens, or other quick fixes, that continue to pop up like annoying weeds. These ineffective and often dangerous (or at least extremely unhealthy) gimmicks continue to rob people of their money, make them miserable, and cause them to fail time and time again as they are not remotely practical, reasonable, or sustainable.
The legitimate and honest fitness professionals out there face an ongoing battle of helping people establish a healthy lifestyle, while trying to help their clients steer clear of the ”sexier” quick fixes that continue to be promoted by a large number of charlatans who are simply after people’s money. Life is not a 30 or 45 day challenge. Pete Hitzeman provides some great advice as to how you can establish a healthy lifestyle that is practical, enjoyable, and sustainable.
