Weight Loss Pill

Truth About the Weight Loss Pill Industry
When it comes to losing weight, people are always trying to find
a magical weight loss pill. The hope is to find something that
will shrink your tummy without having to change your diet or perform
any exercise. Ive taken many a weight loss pill hoping for
Unfortunately, there isnt a pill out today that can replace
a healthy diet and exercise routine. Thats a fact. Theres
no way around it. The sooner you accept it, the sooner you will
actually begin to lose weight.
When you see a weight loss pill infomercial, dont be fooled
by the beautiful models wearing tiny bathing suits promoting a
product. Those models were paid to promote whatever pill, cream,
or patch youre seeing sell for the low, low price
Before you purchase a weight loss pill, just use your common
sense. If this pill could actually make you lose thirty pounds
in thirty days, wouldnt every obese American be using it?
Wouldnt doctors and physicians have it in their office?
Wouldnt the F.D.A. try and let people know of its great
effects on weight? Obviously, this doesnt happen with 99.9%
of the products out there. Thats because most of the promises
they make are false, and sometimes just flat out lies.
A company that makes and sells a weight loss pill is in it for
one reasonmoney. They arent concerned about the validity
of their statements and promises. Theyre goal is to sell
you the dream. Whats the dream? Like I mentioned earlier,
its finding a weight loss pill that will cause you to lose
incredible amounts of weight without having to change your eating
habits and exercise.
A recent craze has been the cortisol products. I talked about
this weight loss pill in a previous article. They claim that weight
gain is due to stress and that if you control cortisol (the stress
hormone) you will begin to lose weight quickly and easily. To
top it all off, they insinuate that your body will naturally lose
weight in those tough places like the abdominal section
for men and the lower body/thigh region for women. In reality,
this product is pure crap. The company that created cortislim
is being sued by the F.T.C. for making false and unsubstantiated
Other weight loss pills that have flooded the market are metabo
boosters. Their main selling point is that with these boosters,
you will burn more calories faster by increasing your metabolism.
Indeed, you do need to burn more calories than you eat to lose
weight. But these products provide no additional benefit and will
not boost your metabolism. Studies were conducts on
a number of these pills and it turned out they provided little
to no metabolic increase.
Remember this, and have it ingrained in your mind--You must eat
a healthy diet and exercise to lose weight. Thats the truth.
