Diet Pills: Friends Or Foes?

It’s important to state that there are times when a doctor will prescribe diet pills for certain patients; typically, this is done on a temporary basis and is highly regulated with a short term goal in sight.
But for many people diet pills are not a solution and may actually cause more harm than good. Losing weight is meant to be a process and in order to sustain it, it is important to make profound habit changes that will propel long-term success. However, many people don’t understand this; they just want to shed all their excessive weight in the shortest time period. Therefore, instead of maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly, they turn to diet pills.
For an individual who doesn’t have enough drive to commit to a physically active life or who just can’t stay away from junk food, diet pills may look like a magicaldaily. However, even if they do help you lose weight, they are still bad for you.
Various Products On The Market
There are numerous diet pills on the market, since a number of different companies manufacture them. The reason why so many companies are interested in making and selling them is because they don’t need to get approval from the Food and Drug Administration before putting them on the market.

Since there are so many diet pills on the market, most companies choose to come up with the most “effective” formulas, so they end up putting some pretty unsafe ingredients into their products.
Even though a lot of people are aware that diet pills may cause them some health issues, they still continue using them, because they offer the easiest possible way to lose weight. Knowing that you could lose ten pounds just by taking a pill a day can be extremely health. However, you need to remember that even if you achieve your weight loss goals, you will encounter some other problems on the way.
Diet Pills Vary In The Way They Help You Lose Weight
Some will help decrease the amount of fat that you absorb from the food you consume, while others will significantly decrease your appetite. Then, there are also those diet pills that work by increasing the amount of calories you burn.
Harmful Side Effects
The problem with all of these diet pills is that they can cause some extremely harmful side effects, including high blood pressure, sleeplessness, kidney problems, increased heart rate, agitation, liver damage, and diarrhea. The longer you take diet pills, the more likely you are to experience these side effects. The main reason why they’re so harmful is because they contain stimulants that are harmful to your overall health, and especially your heart health.
On top of that, certain diet pills can contain antidepressants and amphetamines, making them very addictive. Since there’s a good chance that you may get addicted to them, it’s worth mentioning that you will be at higher risk of experiencing any of the previously mentioned side effects.
However, that’s not even the worst thing about diet pills. The sad truth is that most of them are ineffective, since they represent a combination of caffeine and other diuretics, which only cause water loss. Although you will see a lower number on the scale as a result of water loss, you should know that this is far from fat loss. The water weight can return very easily.
On top of all that, by taking diet pills, you will just avoid changing your life for the better. The reason why a lot of people never manage to reach their weight loss goals is because they fail to make profound and lasting eating and exercise habit changes.
They think that taking pills to shave off a few pounds will help them get rid of their excess weight forever. However, in order to change how you look, you will need to change the way you live. The end goal shouldn’t just be weight loss – it should be living a healthier life.
In addition, diet pills simply won’t make you healthier. They will only represent a temporary solution, and once you stop taking them, you will instantly go back to your initial weight and poor habits.

5 Foods That Are Less Healthy 

There are several “healthy” foods that are not as good for you as you may think. Food manufacturers advertise these products as effective for delivering lots of nutrition, helping you lose weight, keeping your mind sharp, and offering other physical and mental health advantages. Unfortunately, all the advertising tricks in the world don’t change the chemical composition of a food item.

If something is unhealthy for you, it is simply unhealthy. Avoid the following 5 foods which are not as healthy as you thought they were, and your mental and body-based fitness efforts will receive a boost.

1 – High-Fiber Snack Bars and Protein Bars

The key here is reading labels. There are some energy bars, protein bars and high-fiber snack bars which are very good for you. Start reading food labels. Find those that don’t contain sugar, salt, added flavors and a long list of ingredients that end in -ite, -ate and -ose.

You also shouldn’t eat an entire day’s worth of fiber, roughly 25 g, in a single snack bar, as this can have a dramatically negative effect on your digestive system if you don’t eat fiber throughout the day.

2 – Low-Fat Foods

I bet there are some low-fat foods you like a lot. They taste delicious, don’t they? Well, think about this for a second. If the fat is removed, and fat provides incredible flavor, where is your flavor coming from? The answer is, in most cases, incredibly high doses of unhealthy, refined sugar. Your body needs healthy fats in moderation, which means enjoying guacamole or hummus instead of a fat-free food product.

3 – Orange Juice

Did you know it could take as many as 5 to 7 oranges to make a single glass of orange juice? Unfortunately, when you drink the juice you get all of the calories from all those oranges in one beverage! It’s why even 100% juice is jam-packed with tons of calories.

The natural sugar in all of those oranges can additionally cause a blood sugar spike. The natural fruit sugar (fructose) which gives many fruits their sweet taste tricks your body into gaining weight by not letting you realize when you are full. Avoid orange juice and drink a glass of water instead.

4 – “Health” Drinks

There are plenty of drinks touting amazing health properties. If they’ve got more than 3 ingredients, you probably should skip them. No matter how the ingredients are disguised, and manufacturers are very good at disguising empty calories and simple carbohydrates like sugar, if there is a long list of ingredients, your healthy drink is probably anything but.

5 – Store-Bought Vegetable Patties

When you make your own vegetable patties and black bean burgers, you know exactly what you are putting into your body. Unfortunately, many of the frozen, processed vegetable patties you find in the frozen foods section of your local grocer have more fillers and binders than healthy vegetables. A lot of so-called healthy vegetable patties are extremely high in sodium and sugar as well.
