Are You Taking Weight Loss Advice From Someone Who Has Never NEEDED To Lose Weight?
Are you taking weight loss advice from people who have never been overweight? Don’t get me wrong about people like Michelle Bridges. She obviously has an athletic body but what would she know about being obese and needing to shed many many kilos? Clearly she understands how to maintain her body but is that enough for the rest of us?
It really grinds my gears when overweight people perceive others as ‘experts’ in a field, when the truth of the matter is they probably have no frigging idea whatsoever! We look up to these people, buy their books, and watch their shows believing everything that comes out of their mouths. Would you take advice from Donald Trump or Paris Hilton on how to live frugally? When were they poor? Get my drift?
Michelle Bridges & Tiffiny Hall Fat?
Have you stopped to think about these people you might be influenced by? I’m a believer of taking weight loss advice from people who have walked the journey. The journey they’re preaching about! If you’re 120kg and have been overweight since you were a child, how the heck would someone like Michelle Bridges or Tiffiny Hall be able to advise you?
That’s Michelle Bridges and Tiffiny Hall on The Biggest Loser last year HERE when they put on weight after eating the diet the contestants were eating. It makes me laugh! Look at their faces! How many of you would love to step on the scales and see those numbers?? I know I would!
And then there’s the books! Check the one from Tiffiny Hall? Really? The weight loss warrior? When has she had a “battle within”? I think it makes a mockery of obese people.
Now granted, not everyone is extremely overweight or obese but may still need to lose some weight for best health. Well, in response to that I would say the likes of Michelle Bridges and Tiffiny Hall should stick to marketing to people who have less than 10 kilos to lose.
Why are they associating themselves with people who weigh over 100kgs? These trainers have never ever had to deal with the trials and tribulations the contestants on the show or anyone else who is morbidly obese have. How could they possibly give effective weight loss advice?
Nothing A Good Session Or 2 In The Loo Can’t Fix!
It’s a joke that a celebrity trainer took this pic. Sure it does look bloated compared to her regular six-pack…….so?? A couple of good sessions in the loo and she’s probably back to where she started. Is she more interested in gaining sympathy then helping obese people?
Do you think that an obese woman is going to see these pictures and feel sorry for you? Or that she’s going to feel motivated to getting healthy? I think it shows a rather self-centred narcissistic view. If these trainers are so upset with bloated bellies and putting on a few kilos how the hell are the rest of us supposed to feel about our bodies?
Why do they seem so caught up in the couple of kilos they’ve put on when they are so good in giving weight loss advice to people who need to lose 30 or more kilos?
Why should we bother? What sort of messages are they sending to people? Did their BMI even change? (find your BMI here)
Moral Of The Story
Moral of the story people, is don’t get too side tracked with following weight loss advice from people who haven’t done it before! Be selective and don’t fall in love with the brands and marketing that work so well. I would love to see a trainer/weight loss guru who has lost huge amounts of weight (at least 20kg if not more!) and more importantly, kept it off!!
When I become a 50kg ninja and need advice on how to keep up my 6 pack I’ll look up Tiffiny. When I become a 60kg personal trainer, needing advice about losing baby weight in my forties I’ll look up Michelle!
In the meantime, is Richard Simmons the only ‘guru’ who has lost tons of weight and kept it off?? Maybe I should look him up!
