Unfortunately we seem to live in a celebrity culture at the moment where any celebrity news is gobbled up by the general public. Therefore when a celebrity talks about their weight loss journey and you see before and after photos in newspapers and magazines, you can be sure that a lot of people will be very interested. So why is this?
Well as a slim male with a 32 inch waist, I have to admit that these weight loss stories often get my attention even though I am not looking to lose weight myself. That’s because I think there is a real curiosity factor.
Due to the fact that not many people manage to lose a lot of weight, it is always refreshing to read a story about how someone has managed to achieve their goal. This is particularly the case when it is someone famous. Plus of course these are essentially good news stories, and it’s always nice to read something positive for a change.
Another reason why many other people read about these celebrity weight loss stories is of course because they want to lose weight themselves. They may have tried various diets themselves and not been successful, so it is perfectly natural that they will want to read about how other people have managed to achieve their weight loss targets.
I think there are a lot of people out there that think that these celebrities have found the magic formula that will help them lose weight. However when you actually read about these celebrities, their diets and their fitness regimes, they have rarely done anything out of the ordinary.
In a lot of cases they will simply have switched to healthier foods and started doing a lot more exercise. They may well have employed a fitness trainer to help them achieve their goals, which isn’t a luxury a lot of people can afford, but you can of course get plenty of exercise yourself without paying any money.
So the point is that there are a few main reasons why a lot of people are interested in reading celebrity weight loss stories. However in most cases you will find that their weight loss is a result of healthy eating and regular exercise. Therefore you should bear this in mind if you are attempting to lose weight yourself.
Celebrities are no different to the rest of us. They do have an advantage in that they can afford to employ fitness instructors, pay for gym memberships and buy healthier foods (which are often more expensive). However there are lots of ways you can eat healthily and get more exercise, regardless of how much money you have. So anyone can potentially lose weight and create their own weight loss story.
