As promised, the beginning of our #fadfactsfriday posts! Let's start with some companies that are gaining popularity: #plexus #noom #thrive
Plexus is centered around their #slim powdered weight loss supplement drink with a number of supplements as add on options. Their claim is to assist in weight loss, and to reduce blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Sure, this cocktail of vitamins, minerals and fiber can help get you back on track and benefit short term, but so can cleaning up your diet and consuming proper amounts of fiber and nutrients. Like most fads, utilizing this in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle is a great way to get a jump start on your health, but not a long term solution.
Noom is probably the most all encompassing of the 3 when it comes to long term health. It's a wellness program that is designed to help create healthier habits, think paying for a virtual trainer and nutritionist that help you with a personalized plan. The idea is great, but you have to stay true to the plan and stick to your goals.
Thrive can be purchased in several different length options, 8 weeks is a popular time frame. It is a vegan diet plan and supplement regimen geared toward weight loss. Their dermafusion patch is like a constant release of vitamins into your system. Just like any other supplement and diet regimen, for a specific time period, combined with a healthy activity level it's a great way to break a plateau or jumpstart a lifestyle, but not a long term fix.
Once again, I'm not knocking any of these products or programs *when used properly*. Most use green tea, garcinia cambogia, coffee bean extract, acai, vitamin B & fiber. Just remember that after these programs are complete, in order to maintain what you've accomplished, you'll have to make healthy lifestyle choices for the long haul, and that's what we all want right? For our health to last, I know I do! 💪🏼🥗😋🕉️ #foodiefriday #food #faddiets #diets #supplement #lifestyle #fitness #wellness #happyandhealthy #healthyhappyyou #nutrition #youcandoit #goals #makehabitsnotexcuses #exercise #health #happy #stretch #maketime #taketime #balance #lifechange #goodhealth
