the crazy world of the fitness industry
I seen a post the other day from some fit pro bashing people wearing fit bits and the like, claiming that they aren't 100% accurate, and they calculating peoples movement and calorie totals out wrong, its quite funny, these type of people always have to be right but cant see the bigger picture for their own ego.
We have an obesity epidemic that shows no signs of slowing down, people are moving way less and eating way more, yet this fit pro choose to make a big deal over whether or not the fitness device is 100% accurate, is anything we do 100% accurate, i don't know how this person must sleep at night not knowing if everything they did that day was 100% accurate.
Hows about instead of moaning about what ever fitness device people are using, we actually give some praise to the device that might just get people to move a little more, is complaining about people hitting their 10.000 steps a day really required because it may not have been 10.000 steps, is it not a good thing that people start moving more ?
But they will tell you that people think that they have burnt X amount of calories off so then they can eat X amount of calories, but their fitness device is wrong,
It may well be wrong but whats good is that they are now thinking about how much they are eating, and maybe what they are eating, maybe these little steps are just going to make a massive difference to that person, maybe that person will then take the next step to figure out how to lose weight if its not happening
But this study said that people that use fitness devices lose no more weight than those that did ..... fxxk your study, these days there is a study for everything and you can find biased information to back up anything, hows about that person that is now using a fitness device is now living a more active life and a healthier life because of the fitness device, maybe without it they would never had done anything
Lets stop bashing people for trying, give them some praise, it takes courage to start to want to change regardless of how it come about, maybe that fitness device is going to add years onto somebody's life, i'd say that's a good thing
