You ask for stuff. A capitalist system fills the need. Then you decide if you want what was offered.
I’m not sure why there is so much disdain for the capitalist system these days.
On the other hand, a State sponsored solution offers you:
No, I’m sticking with Capitalism. Not perfect by any means but certainly the best option for those who like to control their own destiny
Because capitalists will respond. They’ll make it for you.
Will it work? Probably not. Read this report that compares the results from four of the most popular weight loss products.
Look at this summary chart from the report.
It looks like Weight Watchers gets decent results (compared to the others at least) and if you look at their site, you’ll see they do try to get you to make lifestyle changes. They offer a bit more than just “buy my product.”
I’m still not buying this crap (just my opinion).
The “magic pills” seldom pan out.
Are you better off with any of these things?
Probably not. You may have lost some weight initially but it’s coming back.
Because you didn’t solve your underlying problem. You didn’t really change anything.
That’s the key.
What you really want is “to lose body fat (and you’re not sure how much but you’ll know when you get there), do it without spending a lot of time in the gym (training hard is OK) and fast is really not that important, you want permanent. You want to get it done and keep it done.
Yes, a lifestyle change is what you’re really asking for. This will solve your underlying problem.
And it won’t come back.
So why not ask for what you really want instead? The system will respond.
