DD Fitness: Weight loss products and online influencers who lie to their followers

first_imgThere is no end to the amount of weight loss products that have entered the market here in the last few years.Every month, a new company come along with their new product that is ‘guaranteed’ to help you to lose weight.It isn’t surprising that they help you to lose weight when they all seem to follow an extremely low-calorie diet model that revolves around 2 shakes and one meal. Then if you are hungry, you always have their other supplements or snacks that you can also buy, or their reps can sell you.That’s a good scenario.The other scenarios are the tea and coffee sellers who push laxatives disguised as weight loss drinks onto their customers.This time, you can eat healthy meals, but they don’t get to stay in you very long as you will be dispersing them out of your system as fast as they go in. I’ll make this very simple.THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO LOSE WEIGHT AND KEEP IT OFF!But the real issue that is happening right now is that these companies are recruiting online and local ‘influencers’ to promote and sell these products.There are 2 types of these ‘influencers’People who don’t know any better and think the products actually do help.People who know the products are a scam but sell them anyways.While you may think of giving a bit of leeway to the people in the 1st category, the fact remains that if they don’t understand nutrition, they have no business selling this nonsense. But, the people in the 2nd category are the real issue.They know and understand that the products are short term money wasters, and no one will keep the weight off long term.But they still lie to their followers and they still lie to their friends to get them to buy it.They also, then push these people to become sales reps and give them this imaginary dream that they will become rich from selling the products. They sound as if they have the answers to all your weight loss and financial problems.They don’t.Make no mistake about it, the reality is that all they want is your money and they want you to sell more, so THEY can make more money.The REAL money comes from getting people to sell for them.Instagram is currently riddled with these ‘influencers’ and it’s disgusting to watch.Unfortunately, it seems as if there will always be a place for these products in the market.Firstly, because there are always opportunists waiting to make money from people who are either desperate or are willing to try anything to help them to lose weight.Secondly, because there will always be people who want to do as little as possible to try and get the results, they want(They usually complain about how they can never keep the weight off)There are no quick fixes when it comes to sustainable weight loss.If you want to really lose weight and keep it off, you probably know by now that weight loss products AREN’T the way to go.#leanin2019If you would like help to lose weight in a sustainable way by eating tasty food, then my lean in 2019 program can help.We are always welcoming new members in and you can and out all information through the link below.FIND OUT MORE HERE!DD Fitness: Weight loss products and online influencers who lie to their followers was last modified: August 16th, 2019 by Emmet RusheShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

African growth outlook strong: report

first_img29 May 2013Africa’s economic outlook for 2013 and 2014 is promising, confirming its healthy resilience to internal and external shocks and its role as a growth pole in an ailing global economy, according to the African Economic Outlook 2013, released on Monday.The report is produced annually by the African Development Bank (AfDB), the OECD Development Centre, the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and the UN Development Programme (UNDP).According to the report, Africa’s economy is projected to grow by 4.8% in 2013 and accelerate further to 5.3% in 2014.At the same time, the report shows that this growth has been accompanied by insufficient poverty reduction, persisting unemployment, increased income inequalities and, in some countries, deteriorating levels of health and education.The report argues that African countries should tap into their natural resource wealth to accelerate the pace of growth and ensure that the process can benefit ordinary Africans.“Now is the time to step up the tempo of economic transformation, so that African economies become more competitive and create more gainful jobs”, say the authors of the report, adding that “widening the sources of economic activity is fundamental to meeting this challenge”.Africa’s agricultural, mining and energy resources could boost the continent’s economic growth and pave the way for a breakthrough in human development, the report states.“Growth is not enough”, Mario Pezzini, director at the OECD Development Centre, said in a statement. “African countries must provide the right conditions for turning natural resources into jobs, optimise their resource revenues through smart taxation and help investors and locals to make the most of linkages.”According to the report, four key elements are needed to achieve this objective. Firstly, African countries should create the right conditions for such a transformation to take place, including infrastructure, education and the creation of larger and more competitive markets.“Access to markets is fundamental to structural transformation based on natural resources: regional integration and better access to the markets of large partners could open new opportunities for all”, said Emmanuel Nnadozie, director of the macroeconomic policy division at the ECA.Secondly, the report argues, Africa’s primary sectors “require sound land management, balanced and effective tax systems and the right mechanisms and incentives to cause an acceleration and diversification of the sources of growth”.In the agricultural sector for instance, transport, fertilizers and more resistant seeds are required for an increase in productivity. Africa has 24 percent of the world’s agricultural land, but accounts for only 9 percent of its production.Thirdly, African governments and investors “must ensure that a fair share of the proceeds from natural resources and extractive industries accrue to society: for example, they should be invested in people’s capacities to take up new jobs in promising sectors.”Finally, the report suggests that African countries can foster change and economic diversification actively, for example through corridors of development around power, transport and communication lines. Stable and transparent use of budgets is key to achieving this goal.“Now is the time”, said Mthuli Ncube, chief economist and vice-president of the African Development Bank. “After 10 years of improved stability, sound macroeconomic policies and blossoming trade links, growth has made African nations freer than ever to choose their own development paths and implement active policies for economic transformation.”Ultimately, the report argues, transformation means opening opportunities so people can find jobs, create businesses, as well as invest in health, education and food security. In turn, higher levels of human development for all, including the most vulnerable, can accelerate the pace of economic transformation, leading to a virtuous cycle of growth and development.“Among many other benefits, human development can help drive Africa’s structural transformation by speeding both the rate of innovation and uptake of new technologies,” said Pedro Conceicao, chief economist at the UNDP’s Regional Bureau for Africa.“But for this to happen, more attention should be paid to improving access to and quality of education and healthcare systems, transforming agriculture and fostering job creation in order to narrow income inequalities.”SAinfo reporterlast_img read more
