Weight Loss

I started reading this awesome blog on beststeroids2018.blogspot.co.ke and bumped on this compelling set of information that I just can’t consume alone. I really need to share it. The blog centred on one thing, do not just trust information. Only trust great info from relevant people.

Weight Loss Scammers

The worst thing about being overweight in the 21st century is not being ridiculed, feeling out of place or have self-esteem issues. No, the worst thing is being scammed right, left and center. You see, we are in a generation where everyone pretends to be a guru in what they do despite the fact that they know zilch.

So you will bump into these bloggers who call themselves weight loss experts who are going to advise you to buy a certain weight loss supplement but my dear friend, most of those know nothing about nutrition. They know nada about weight gain and should therefore advise no one on how they can slim or get ripped.

They will advise you about products to buy but they end of hurting you. Say for example that someone asks that you buy shoes but they end up getting you a problem like feet overpronation.

In this age of the internet and where every Tom, Dick, Harry, their dogs and grandmothers have a blog, you should look out from whom you are reading.

So, how do you differentiate the chaff from the wheat?

  1. Certification

Any serious fitness blogger should post their certification on their blog so that we can trust them. The diploma should be from a highly reputable institution of higher learning or otherwise, they will scam you.


Look at the comment section and see who else has bough the product being marketed. Are they satisfied

  1. Positive reviews all through

If the writer is doing a positive review of every product and claiming that they have used them all, that is scam written all through. Do not touch their products. Even in the most natural markets, the seller has not tried everything and therefore cannot vouch for all.


  1. Linked out

Check who is linking to the blogger. If authority sites, then they are good to read from. If they are linked out by low quality blogs, then they could be spammers who have paid little for the low quality links. By authority sites, we are talking of sites such as Forbes, Webmd, Medicinenet etc.

Arch Sleeves and braces


Protective apparel is very important especially if you are talented in sports and like to show and share your skills with the world. As much as sports are interesting, they can lead to severe injuries in the feet, legs and hands. This statement does not imply that are sporting activities are dangerous. However, most of them including simple exercise such as the aerobics can lead to severe injuries. There is a wide range of protective gears that are used to prevent various parts of the body from injuries. The common ones include: mouthguard, shoulder stabilizer and support, back braces and stabilizers, elbow sleeves, wrist wraps, thumb stabilizers, knee braces, and arch braces and sleeves.  Good support apparel is made if sturdy and lightweight material, that protects the body from injury without impacting the weight during performance. Furthermore, each type of apparel serves a specific purpose.


Arch braces and sleeves are specifically designed to protect the feet and ankles.  They are essential for preventing conditions such as planter fasciitis, edema, heel pain and ankle contracture. In most cases arch braces and sleeves are made of strong compression material that enhances blood circulation in the feet. This enhances metabolism thereby preventing swelling.  The other benefit of compression material is that it does not constriction. Constriction can lower blood circulation thereby inducing pain and swelling.


The compression material is also important for preventing joint injuries. They enhance joint stabilization by covering all the necessary areas appropriately.  Some sleeves and braces are padded and infused with medical grade gel that relieves pain. Arch sleeves and braces should be used during sports activities. You do not have to be a professional athlete to use them. Injuries can occur anytime and it is important to avoid them at all costs. Some of the factors to consider when buying these products include quality, reviews, brand, material, cost and design.
