The Media I Didn’t Ignore

As avid sports fans one of the things we’re exposed to most when watching our favorite sports is the constant barrage of advertisements for various health products. I don’t know about you (although I’m pretty sure) but I get tired of the relentless stream of crap companies keep trying to sell us. Unfortunately, some worthwhile products often get overlooked or ignored because we’re so numb to the incessant stream of stuff being hailed as the next big thing.

Even our favorite sports figures are being used to pitch all kinds of fitness related products of questionable efficacy. Remember when Shannon Sharpe insisted on wearing that EAS hat for every media appearance so he could push his sponsorship with them?

Well, even with all that I recently broke down and purchased a product that hadn’t been as heavily marketed though the sports channels but was still a regular in my part of the country. Here’s my story:

I was recently in Australia with my ex-girlfriend when I started going through some of the pictures we had taken during our travels. What I noticed stunned me. No, it wasn’t the magnificent beauty of the Sydney Harbor Bridge, the Blue Mountains, or the Opera House. Instead, it was the size and prominence of my gut. Right there for everyone to see (thanks social media). I knew I had to do a better job of watching my weight and being more consistent about working out but I didn’t realize it had gotten so out of hand.

When I got back to the States I starting looking at various weight loss products because all I could think about was how to lose weight and lose it fast. I decided fairly quickly that I was going to have to seriously alter my eating habits to get back to where I wanted with my weight.

As I got further and further along with my research I eventually whittled it down to three products that I thought could help me achieve my weight loss goals. Those three are: Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, and Ideal Shape. While they all have their benefits and drawbacks I came to the conclusion that the best diet to lose weight for me would be Ideal Shape. The combination of a great tasting product that was easy to prepare and was also light on the wallet sealed the deal for me.

Since I’ve been taking Ideal Shape I’ve lose over twenty pounds by combining the Ideal Shape shakes along with a solid workout program. So, if you’re like me and you’ve been spending too much time watching sports on the couch and it has started to add up around your waistline, I highly recommend giving Ideal Shape a look.
