Obsession with pills

Postby CHI » Tue, 07 Sep 2004 10:29 am

I am genuinely interested to hear why so many people in Singapore are into slimming pills, gels, supplements etc. Couldn't be bothered to exercise? Not getting results, or tried and failed? Isn't it just treating the symptom instead of the cause, or do you plan to implement a healthy lifestyle once you have reached a healthy weight using pills?? Just curious to understand why...


advertisements are the influence to slimming products

I guess advertisements and endorsements are the influence to them. I only believe in all things natural .

Although i do believe in exercise but then the results are usually very slow or sometimes might not even worked at all. Now i'm trying very hard for exercise although at first i admitted i was tempted to try the easy way. In singapore, i feel that the people are trained or taught in such a way to do things to see results as fast as possible. The jounery or the road to get the results is not very important to the people here.

Exercising requires alot of determination and motivation. Usually dies down after about 2 weeks when you don't results? TIRING!

Somehow eating pills has that kinda psychological effect whereby if you are spending money on the pills, you tend to eat less because you secretly want the pills to work.

Haha, just my 2 cents worth
