We help you in starting your diet, then the new range of natural diet aids, herbal alternatives and pills could be an option for you. As we know, natural diet pills are far more gentle once they are inside our organism and work on holistic principles, rather than the “one magic solution” approach of traditional medicines which don’t work for a wide range of people since our metabolic systems do not work at the same pace.
Luckily, diet drugs have come a long way since the addictive “solutions” created and marketed during the 50s and 60s. It is important to remember that each generation of “prescription diet pills” which has been heavily marketed in the past has been recalled because they have proven more dangerous than effective, this was the case of the well remembered: fen-phen and ephedra; experts continue their search for a safe diet pill that actually works.
Many Americans are turning to herbal supplements as a way of meeting their dietary needs and help them loose the excessive weight acquired through trans fat-rich fast foods. With the latest rage for natural products, many people are beginning to use natural diet pills due to the low risk involved with consuming this particular product and compared to prescription medications which can have serious side effects. They way natural diet pills work is by regulating certain chemicals produced in the brain (serotonin and norepinephrine) thus decreasing the anxiety and desire to eat.
According to the National Institute Of Health, more than 300,000 Americans die every year because of a diet rich in unhealthy oils (trans-fat, etc) and physical inactivity throughout their lives. As you can see this is certainly a highly alarming number! It’s a proven fact that losing weight, even a small five to ten percent of body fat, will reduce your blood pressure and lower your overall cholesterol levels. So, why is this so difficult to do even with prescription drugs?, simple, people have forgotten 50% of the “weight loss equation”.
In order to complement the effects natural pills have in our body and metabolism it is necessary to add yet another important factor, exercise:
For one, many people think they can take a pill and lose the weight automatically. This is a common misconception which tends to frustrate people, so we need to realize that “fat and extra pounds DO NOT magically evaporate”, instead they are broken down by our body so that through physical exercise they could be eliminated from our system. A healthy diet consists of so much more than just taking a pill, we must combine the pills with a proper diet in addition to the already discussed ways to avoid gaining weight, we can also remember to drink as much water and exercise moderately in order to gain the maximum benefits offered by diet pills. Don’t forget to eat small portions of food several times a day (around 4 to 6 portions a day), never reduce your food consumption drastically from one day to the other because I could have dire effects. Counting calories helps you keep track of how many calories you are consuming every day.
Counting calories is another step that you can add to the equation, along with eating healthier foods. Many people find that if they eat more home cooked meals on a regular basis instead of fast food and snacks, they will lose weight a lot faster, this not only will benefit your body but your wallet.
Diet Pill Proper Uses
With the increase of diet pills available in the market today one must stop and think of the proper uses rather than focusing in all the weight you are about to loose. Reputable and legitimate diet pills will often have a list of ingredients along with a healthy guide which offers instructions on the recommended dosage which needs to be taken in order for diet pill to work properly within your system.
As we have established previously there are two types of diet pills, those which are prescribed by a physician and those which can be purchased over the counter, they are called prescription diet pills and over the counter pills respectively. Most over-the-counter pills are based on natural herbs which don’t usually react with any other type of medication you could be taking at the same time; on the other hand this might not hold true when it comes to prescription diet pills. We have compiled a list of proper diet pill uses:
- Never take “prescribed” diet pills along with other prescription drug without first consulting your physician as this could have serious side effects.
- Always drink enough water when taking diet pills (at least 8 glasses of water daily). Most diet pills act as a diuretic which can quickly dehydrate your body so it is recommended to keep your body hydrated by constantly drinking fluids.
- Some people tend to have problems swallowing pills and tend to crush them and take them with soup or drinks, unlike other medications, diet pills should be taken whole in the form in which they come along with a full glass of water.
- Never try to take more diet pills than what is recommended in the instructions. This is a mistake we often see young people do, taking several diet pills at once will not make you loose weight faster, on the contrary it could have serious side effects so stick to a good diet pill plan and let nature take its course.
- Before taking “prescribed” diet pills make sure you measure your heart rate in order to compare it with your heart rate after you have started taking these prescription diet pills, if your heart beat increases over 90 per minute or drops dramatically you should stop taking the diet pills and contact your physician.
Following these rules ensure you get the most out of your over-the-counter diet pills or prescription diet pills. It is recommended you opt for natural diet pills which can be purchased on the web or over-the-counter unless indicated by a doctor. Along with these rules, remember to keep a healthy diet and a good fitness plan.
Diet pills VS Fat burners
When it comes to make comparisons between products which are effective and will help you loose weight in a fair amount of time we often find ourselves deciding between diet pills and fat burners; in order to make an educated decision as to which one to use we must first look at the facts and what it really takes to loose those extra pounds gained during holidays, birthdays, special occasions or through our everyday eating routines.
The first step is to avoid at all costs products which claim to make you loose hundreds of pounds in a couple of weeks, Yes, we know you might be very tempted to buy them since we all like easy things, most people tend to be lazy so we can’t blame you, but when your health is the wager on the line you must understand that laziness is definitively not an option. If you are overweight you should know that the number one cause of death in the US is death by heart diseases and as you can imagine heart failure is directly linked to the amount of fat you are putting in your system through unhealthy eating habits.
Now that we have established that overweight people must loose this weight in order to extend their life span we can now compare products which will help you accomplish this goal. Fat burners are products which claim to “burn the fat” out of your system but you may ask: how exactly is the fat burned from our body without exercise? According to these products, the special ingredients found in such pills “accelerate your metabolism” and break down the fat which is later expelled from our body “through the urinary system”
It sounds good right?, but he truth is far from pretty in fact there are some major problems with such claims:
1. Fat can’t be burned from our body without exercise (unless you resort to surgery)
2. If you were 50 pounds overweight could you imagine the bladder problems you would have if all of this “broken down fat” suddenly were to fall to this organ?
3. Any product which messes with your metabolism should raise a big red flag, specially if you suffer from any type of heart condition.
Diet pills on the other hand are sold as supplements which are 100% natural and help you suppress your appetite as well as acting as a diuretic, hence the reason why we need to drink enough water. Diet pills are not the “magic bullet solution”, they must be combined with a healthy diet, proper water consumption and constant exercise in order to avoid your excess skin to hang from your arms, stomach and legs as well as toning your muscles.
People who are “morbidly obese” must consult with their physician since this is a serious condition which can’t be treated with normal diet pills, all others will be just fine eating healthy, exercising and taking their diet pills as instructed.
