Okay, so a classmate of mine who I follow on social media recently lost a lot of weight. At first she was posting before and after shots which were quite motivational.
However slowly these pictures become like advertisements, and she started “online weight loss coaching”. Every day the posts will be about how she’ll help you lose weight if you join. These are really cheesy pictures and captions like “five things I learned about myself”, the five things being stuff like “faith over fear” and “I am strong and courageous”.
She also started pushing about meal replacement shakes. I dug deeper and saw it’s from a certain company H-life. Actually, I wanted to ask her for some tips to lose weight also but from all the posts it seems like some sort of weird cult behavior. Like her whole life revolves around “fat loss coaching” and it’s over the top positive.
Is this some sort of new MLM? I don’t wanna get sucked in. Is she alright or has she sunken in too deep?
Here are what netizens think:
- if you have money to spare, you can always pay them to a fitness trainer. They will ask you for photos for your every meal to give you advice accordingly what you should do next.
- hmm if losing weight is a difficult task then it is only normal for her to commit fully to it in order to see the results. she prolly does not want to give herself a chance to be distracted and lose motivation.of cos there are other weight loss method too that requires discipline.
- There are many mlm out there like this. The more prominent ones include the one u mentioned & alot more online. All the same tactics. Daily posting of all the success stories. Try googling and you’ll see, many people actually failed using their products too. Essentially, no short cuts to dieting. If you wanna lose weight, try jogging daily for 30mins & count your calories. I guarantee thats the best weight loss strategy.
- She benefitted from losing weight and getting healthy. Most likely looks much better and more confident too. What is wrong with her wanting to share how she turned her health & life around?
