A lot of people all over the world admit to not being in the weight that they want to be. Some are tired of seeing skinny girls in the streets and in the magazines who seem to look good on any outfit they wear. Some are tired of eating only that which won't get them fat, and feeling teary-eyed whenever they see a cheese burger. Some simply want to look good for themselves, to increase their self confidence too. So with all this hype on being skinny,weight loss blogs have become the new headquarters for those who aim to be healthy and slim.
Weight loss blogs are online diaries of people who want to lose weight, on the process of losing weight, or people who are seriously invested in losing weight and in helping other people lose weight. And so with the increasing usage of the Internet and the increasing number of people who trust it as their major source of information, are weight loss blogs really reliable? Or are they just bunch of wise salesmen who try to win the hearts of the desperate and then sell them with something that might help them in losing weight?
Now if you are one of those people who like visiting weight loss blogs, then there are a few things that you should keep in mind:
First, don't believe everything you read immediately. While you are surfing the net and then you suddenly find yourself getting amazed by one story of a niche-heavy weight loss blog, don't get too carried away and sign up for anything or buy anything.
You check if it is humanly possible (lose 10 pounds in 3 days!). Second, try to have a feel of his website/ blog. Does it look legit? Or does it appear tacky and it seems like you're just in their website because someone told you to visit it. Also, research. Nothing beats knowing the ACTUAL facts. Some of the things which can help you decide if the website is legit are the length of the website's existence, the qualifications or personal experiences of the one writing the blog, and a business permit (if applicable, if they are selling something).
So the answer's yes, you can still believe weight loss blogs, as long as you know how to properly delineate the dubious sounding and dubious looking ones. Good luck on your journey to your ideal weight.
