Before I start with this blog post let me get one thing clear right from the get go. I’m a huge fan of the 3 fat chicks on a diet forum.
I read the 3 fat chicks on a diet forum regularly and will continue to do so, plus I often post and comment on it. It’s a great resource for beginners and of course advanced (and if there is such a thing professional) persons trying to lose weight.
You can find almost anything on there from guides to recipes and so much more. 3 fat chicks on a diet truly is an amazing resource for all of us, especially those struggling with our weight.
So why should you be careful with it?
Well… because it’s just the nature of the beast. Forums, no matter if it is 3 fat chicks on a diet or any other internet forum, are the quintessence of free speech.
Anybody can voice their thoughts and opinions freely and anonymously. Don’t get me wrong here I love free speech. It’s the best thing ever, especially since women didn’t have this right for quite some time.
However this also means that people like total beginners without any experience in the weight loss field voice their opinion on 3 fat chicks on a diet, which would be all good if it wasn’t for all the crap floating around the weight loss industry…
Take all those health magazines pitching you the newest diet or magic pill that is supposed to make you thin overnight, while most of them are actually engineered to make you gain weight!
Just think about it, if you would actually lose weight there would be nothing for them left to sell to you.
People will often write things on 3 fat chicks on a diet that they have read somewhere else.
And often those things are wrong and cannot be backed by any form of scientific data or real life experience.
Now guess what happens next… Someone who tries losing weight reads this “advice” on the 3 fat chicks on diet forum following it.
This woman is super motivated at first, because she can now finally see light at the end of the tunnel. But after a couple of months she is hit by the major downer, she isn’t losing any weight.
Now most people will react in one of the following two ways.
1. Quit, thinking I can’t lose weight no matter what, never achieving her goal of a healthier and happier life.
2. Look somewhere else for advice getting caught in the vicious circle of the shady diet industry.
This is exactly what happened to me, when I first started trying to lose weight and it took me 10 years to overcome it.
However in the end I made it anyway, see the picture below.
However it was quite a struggle until I got there, by the way you can read more about it here: MY STORY
