I'm not saying don't try taking some alternative route you heard about next time you want to go to the lake. Rather, this post comes following an ad I saw on Instagram that said "press reset with a juice cleanse" and is all about your health and well-being.
When it comes to health and fitness, there will always be a new fad diet, a "magic pill", or some miracle workout that claims to get you to your goals faster than anything else can. The problem with each of these is that you are only being told about the success stories - these "miracle solutions" don't work for everybody. And even if they do work for you, more often than not they are only a temporary fix; when you are done with the juice cleanse/bottle of pills/60-day diet/etc. you will likely revert back to what you were doing before and return to where you were, if not even further from your goals.
All of the above "quick fixes" may get you where you want to be, but they do so without teaching you how to stay there. When it comes to reaching and sustaining your goals, a behavioural change is far more likely to lead you to long-term success. Most people who have success with said "quick fixes" and sustain that success also picked up other good habits along the way; i.e. being more physically active, an improved diet, etc.
To be clear, I am not saying that you should avoid "quick fixes" at all costs. But you should be aware of how/why they work. Often times they work by restricting or limiting you in ways that are not sustainable over the long-term, but if you pick up improved habits along they way you will have a much greater chance of seeing prolonged success.
