You'd think that by now we'd all stop falling for supplements which promise to "blast belly fat" or "drop pounds while still eating cupcakes," but you'd be wrong. Powerful marketing continues to dupe vulnerable people into wasting their money. Here are the common selling points (ahem, lies) that you'll find on the label.


Finding clear, definitive facts about healthy exercise can be difficult. The exercise industry is a multi-billion dollar business, built partially on selling gadgets and supplements to people desperate to lose weight or look attractive.

We're taking some of those commonly-held exercise myths to task, and we have science to back us up. Let's get started.


When your daily commute is 20 steps between your bedroom and home office, the biggest threats to your weight and health are lack of movement and the temptations of a fully-stocked kitchen and fridge.

I can't run more than 50 metres without stopping. I need help lifting a box of groceries. I can barely touch my toes. I keep eating more cake, and just buying bigger pants.

My body fat percentage is higher than my age. I am 34 years old, and I am not looking after my health. But that's about to change. By this time next year, I am going to be a real life Wonder Woman.

Couch Potato, to Wonder Woman.


The holiday season is hardly the harbinger of impending health and fitness. Especially considering that, for many, December's poster boy is a morbidly obese old man that gorges himself on cookies and cake. But despite the abundance of treats and temptations, this doesn't mean your diet will fall to ruins. Below, we'll discuss a framework you can use in order to stick to your plan.


Here’s a neat little experiment.

Next time you’re on social media, try out a variant of this tweet/status:

“Just ate a whole large pizza to myself lmao #goodtimes.”

Now sit back in your chair as the likes and the smileys and the emoticons roll in.
