Instagram’s fitness motivation department has been steadily gaining serious market share. The enormous amount of Photoshopped butts, biceps, abs, breasts and other body parts floating in the cyberspace prove this every day. It’s hard to look for something training related online without stumbling upon a couple of “how bad do you want it/this is my butt” type of memes. Generation hashtalk seems to like it, but there’s a problem – your perception of reality could be clouded, if you are new to this genre.
There are a lot of phony people on Instagram who love getting drunk off positive comments coming from their so-called followers. Over 70% of the fitness celebrities on Instagram are fake naturals trying to fool their naïve fans that anabolic windows and doors are the key to a paradisaical physical development. Ironically, those supernaturals pump steroids and growth hormone in their system more times a day than they eat.
Since shiny packages sell well, the customers are buying the product even if it is deadly poison. Sometimes in the supermarket I see couples who appear to be buying half the store. While I am waiting to pay for my own sins, I tend to analyze what they are investing in. Most of the time the choices are terrible – cheap sodas, low quality meats, all kinds of chips, candies, snickers, frozen pizzas, jellybeans and some garbage plastic toys for the fat kid making stupid signs in the shopping cart.
I am also not innocent, but I can tell you one thing – only about 10% of the food I buy is garbage by choice. The rest is garbage because this is how stuff is made these days – painted salmon, fake milk cheese…etc.
The same appears to be true when it comes to information and life concepts. We always subscribe to the glossy stuff regardless of its proven negative effects and lack of solid base.
The fake natties on Instagram operate the same way harmful yet popular products penetrate the market. The reasons fake sells well are good packaging and strong marketing. The only thing you are allowed to see are the out-of-this-world photos and dehydrated smiles of the fitness models. They will never talk about how they can’t sleep during the night because of tren’s side effects or other similar topics. The fake natties will also never post stuff like #puffynipples #bitchtits #trencough #prematureaging #g4pallday. This wouldn’t be considered proper behavior in the politically correct world where people who criticize are always labeled as anti-happiness creatures a.k.a. haters. Out of the whole group my favorites are the trolls defending the fake natties while ignoring in your face facts proving that the person in question is as natural as a cancer in your pants.
Sorry, but the girls don’t make an exception. There are tons of single core fitness bunnies on Instagram with tranny voices who use #squatglutes #crossfit #soreass #danaismyhero #silicone #trustmeIamawoman #howbaddoyouwantit #daisydukes quite frequently.
These women also create unrealistic expectations regarding what can be achieved naturally and can start messing with your head to the point where your personal stocks start dropping. You shouldn’t let that happen if you love your health. At one point you have to start treating the whole experience as a movie – it’s there, but it’s also fake. Unfortunately, all of this may be too hard to understand for people members of the I-look-at-my-smartphone-even-when-I-walk club.
