It seems that weight loss pills are being advertised everywhere at the moment and for those people wanting to lose weight it must be very easy for them to think that these are the answer to their problems! I personally don't think that this solution is going to solve their problems especially in the long term. More importantly anyone considering taking these should ask themselves, "How safe are they and do they work?"
The answer to that question is not a simple one! To say that it is NOT OK to take weight loss pills is to perhaps deny the benefits of some of these pills. To say otherwise would be tantamount to advocating taking weight loss pills to shed off pounds which could ultimately lead to side effects!
Before anyone considers taking pills, it is important for them to acknowledge that the all-time safest and proven way to lose weight and keep it off is through a combination of regular Physical Activity and a Healthy Diet.
Dieters should be particularly wary of weight loss pills that contain harmful ingredients such as chemicals and other artificial additives that can accumulate in the body and may cause problems later on in life. One should be aware of banned substances such as ephedrine, which is a strong stimulant that can affect a person's heartbeat and can cause severe heart palpitations. Although this substance is banned in the United States some weight loss pills being sold in elsewhere may still contain it.
If you really feel that you need to take weight loss pills then you should choose one that is made of natural ingredients. Green tea has been proven as a natural thermogenic. This means it can increase the body's temperature to aid the process of burning fat. Green tea comes in the form of tea bags or for more convenience, in capsule or tablet form. There are also forms of seaweed that have fat burning properties, although at present more research is currently being carried out to ascertain whether it really is effective as an ingredient for a weight loss pill.
I would suggest that weight loss pills are not really the best solution when trying to lose weight. Some may feel they cannot lose weight without them so I would advise that they research the market thoroughly before taking anything and along with that the very safest option would be to consult a doctor before you start on a course of tablets!
Finally, it is not as difficult as you think to lose weight by healthy eating and exercise, if you join a weight loss program you will be given support, guidance, knowledge, and a whole host of motivational ideas and techniques to help you achieve your goal. I feel confident that this method will result in a loss of weight which can be successfully maintained due to a whole new way of thinking, eating and living!
Give it a try - it will prove very much safer for your overall health and fitness!
