Yes, but why?
People like to add complicated gimmicks because it makes the whole thing–weight loss–seem more easy. It isn’t. Even with gimmicks.
I think this is very true and also very baffling. Even for me, who has tried multiple gimmicky approaches to weight loss in my life, it doesn’t make sense. I felt a sense of….relief would be the best word when I finally understood the basics of weight loss. It put everything in perspective. Having a big meal plus dessert didn’t actually have the power to ‘ruin’ anything. Scale jumps should generally be ignored. Gaining weight and losing weight don’t happen overnight. Etc etc etc…
So why do people consistently go for gimmicks?
