Asking Your Facebook Friends For Weight Loss Advice

Todays Point of View: asking your FB friends what YOU should do to lose some weight….

Ohhh the responses you’ll get! I love Facebook for it let’s us connect with a ton of people we may not ever speak to in person but when it comes to this subject, I honestly cringe.


👉“Just run & watch what you eat”

👉“Portion control & daily exercise”

👉“Don’t eat carbs”

👉“Eat carbs because your body needs them, just increase protein”

👉“Intermittent fasting. It worked for me”

👉”Don’t fast, eat 6 small meals a day”

👉”balance your hormones. That’s the problem”


👉”Drink lots of water”

👉”Get a script from your doctor”

👉”Meal prep!”

👉”Eat golden honey”…..

Need I post more??? 🙄

Here’s the thing guys- what works for your neighbor may not work for you. I’ve been doing this for a lonnngggggg time. I see this every day and hear your struggles every single day.

Although most of these things will help- here’s the problem.

👉 What if … just hear me out… what if said person can’t just hop off the couch and run a mile? What if they have bad joints or had a recent knee replacement …. That’s not gonna work.

✨Telling said person to exercise daily when they don’t even have time to pee during the day will do nothing.

✨Telling someone to “watch what they eat” will do nothing if they don’t even know what they’re supposed to be eating calorie wise.

✨Telling someone to completely cut out carbs from their diet when they don’t want to do that will do nothing.


My whole point is – not one thing will work for everyone.

Weight loss isn’t one product, one method, one exercise, one fast, one gallon of water.

✨ Weight loss is a lifestyle change and you have to be in that mindset. Weight loss is hard.

All these methods will work. But it’s “after” the fact, when you stop a product or reach your goal is when the hard comes in.
