Many companies are making billions by selling ab training equipment and “miracle” pills. The only thing those supplements do is irritating your intestines until you throw everything out. When you get rid of water and waste, you see the number has gone down on the scale, you are happy and you believe the magical pill indeed makes miracles.
Oh yes, it was the pill, but it hasn’t done anything good. That’s why you gain all the weight back in no time. Don’t get me start on the “miracle” ab machines. You strap some belt underneath your clothes and it gives you amazing abs in no time. It if was only true.
Why do we keep believing these lies? Because we’d rather pay hundreds of dollars than to exercise regularly. People rather go on diets, suffer hungry for days, and spend big amounts of money on good-for-nothing equipment, and all this to avoid getting sweaty a couple of times per week. The truth is — doing crunches and any other form of ab exercises can’t remove your fat. It can create good ab muscles but they are not going to be visible unless you get rid of fat covering them. To combat the fat, together with ab exercises, one has to incorporate cardio workouts at least 3-4 times a week.
