Have you ever noticed how some people seem to effortlessly lose weight while others seem to struggle to maintain their figure? There must be some kind of secret to getting thin, right?
Well, it’s true – there is a formula to losing weight, and it all starts with a meme. Yes, those funny little pictures that you can share on social media to spread a message. While some people choose to shed their excess pounds through dieting and exercise, others decide to reach for their phones and share their journey of weight loss on social media.
The difference is in the attitudes. Those who choose the traditional route to weight loss typically struggle with doubt and fear, while others seem to lose their anxiety around food and weight loss when sharing their journey on social media.
If you’re looking to shed some pounds, you might want to consider taking the route less traveled. Instead of following the fad diets and spending hours every day figuring out meal plans, why not try a meme-based approach to weight loss?
If you’re curious as to how this type of dieting might work, check out this meme-based weight loss system developed by Fitocracy.
In this article, you’ll learn about the incredible power of memes, how they can be used to lose weight, and what you should know about this type of dieting.
The Meme-Based Approach To Weight Loss
If you’ve ever shopped at Nordstrom, you might have stumbled upon the fitness brand’s Try On App, which allows users to visualize how certain clothing items look when worn. One option is the Try On Skinny Jeans, which shows a washed-out dark denim look when viewed from the back.
It would be fair to say that the average person fails to achieve the same level of sleekness as captured in the screen capture above, and it’s likely due to the fact that most people don’t wear skinny jeans when they go clothes shopping. As a matter of fact, a 2014 survey conducted by the NPD group found that only 2% of men and 1% of women of all ages wear skinny jeans.
While it’s true that not everyone will resonate with trying on clothing items when they’re shopping for themselves, the same can be said about dieting. You might not feel that you fit into a certain style of clothing when you’re dieting, but there’s a possibility that you might feel more comfortable wearing something that is a bit on the daring side. After all, isn’t that what fashion is all about?
There’s a reason why Nordstrom’s Try On App is so popular – it takes the guesswork out of trying on seasonal items and fits it into a structured, calorie-counting environment. Memes are the next big thing in fashion and lifestyle, and it’s about time that people started realizing the incredible power that they have when it comes to weight loss. Once you set your mind to it, you’ll begin to see food in a different way – as something that you should enjoy rather than fear. And that, my friend, is all it takes to start losing weight.
The first step towards successfully adopting a meme-based approach to weight loss is to determine what kind of content you’ll use to drive traffic to your blog or website. If you’re new to blogging or website building, the best thing for you to do is to build a list of potential meme topics in advance. The more you have, the better. This will help you figure out what types of memes your audience is interested in, which will in turn allow you to craft content that they’ll love.
Pick A Few Nodes To Memeify
When you start a blog or website, you have the daunting task of choosing a niche and figuring out what content to post about. The truth is that there is no easy solution to this problem. You’ll either have to pick a topic that you know a lot about or that you think your audience will enjoy, or you’ll have to go with something that you’ve never written about before but that you think might be of interest to your audience. In the process of choosing a niche, you also need to consider what types of memes you’ll choose to create. Bear in mind that memes are, by their very nature, popular and engaging.
When you’ve determined that you want to adopt a meme-based approach to weight loss, the next step is to pick a couple of nodes – topics or areas of interest that you’ll use to start your content series. For example, if you’re curious about fashion, you might want to start a blog or website around menswear. Or, if you’re passionate about food, you might want to write about restauranteurs and their dishes.
As you can see, these suggestions are pretty broad, which means that you have a lot of freedom when it comes to writing content for your meme series. Don’t worry – you don’t have to be a professional writer to pull off a decent meme series. You just need to have a good understanding of humor and a fun attitude towards life.
Create A Meme Calendar
Now that you have your two nodes of interest, you can begin to map out a schedule for posting content. There are a number of apps and websites that can help you with this process, but nothing beats having a calendar that you can keep track of deadlines and content schedules. When you enter a date and time for a meme post into a calendar, you’ll see a little box pop up with the topic you’ve chosen. This is incredibly helpful because it limits the amount of time you’ll need to spend researching and writing content for each post. Plus, it keeps you organized.
The beauty of a meme calendar is that you can add in all sorts of content that you might want to create. From guides on how to create themed meals to event recaps, if you can think of an idea that you might want to share with your audience, you can add it to your calendar. The important thing is that you keep the calendar as busy as possible – if you have too much free time, you might decide to spend it doing nothing but watching TV or going on long walks. The opposite of what you want to achieve with this approach to weight loss!
Pick A Theme For Your Blog
Once you’ve had your fill of creating memes, it’s time to pick a theme for your blog. The easiest way to do this is by looking at the other blogs and websites in your niche. You don’t need to be beholden to any particular theme when picking your memes – you can always go with a mish-mash of different topics if you want. But, as a general rule of thumb, you might want to go with a sleek, minimalistic look if you’re creating a fashion blog or a health blog, or something more traditional if you’re writing about food.
The important thing to keep in mind is that you want to keep the theme throughout your blog or website. In the process of designing your blog or website, you might want to keep this in mind to keep everything cohesive. Otherwise, you might find that your designs begin to look like the “wild west,” which would break the “theme” of your site.
Make Sure That Your Posts Are Memetically Appropriate
As you begin to populate your calendar with content, you need to keep an eye out for any tweets, Instagram posts, or other types of content that might be deemed inappropriate by societal standards. While you don’t have to be held to any particular standard, it’s good practice to make sure that the types of memes you create aren’t inappropriate or offensive. When you begin to gain popularity, you’ll inevitably encounter trolls on social media who try to sow some discord by making racist or otherwise inappropriate jokes about your memes. (If you ever see someone tweeting about how great something is that makes you uncomfortable, it’s usually due to a troll. Ignore them – they’re not worth your time or energy).
To avoid any unnecessary headaches down the line, make sure that your memes are good-natured enough so that they won’t get someone in trouble or make people feel unwelcome at a social gathering. With that in mind, here’s a good example of an inappropriate meme:
If you want to create a meme about a skincare product, you might want to pick a niche that isn’t easily offended (for example, adult content or funny memes). Otherwise, you could find that your memes begin to trend towards inappropriate topics and lead to some regrettable situations. Just as with most social media platforms, if you want to keep your personal information private, you need to be careful about what types of content you put out there. Otherwise, you’ll inevitably have your personal details exposed by trolls or hackers.
