I came across an article the other day by Russell Martino who is an excellent resource if you ever want information about the "why's" when it comes to diet and fitness. I know a lot of you have taken pills in the past that claim to help you loose weight, curb your appetite or just burn fat faster. Below are four reasons why "diet pills" DON'T work and a few health concerns you might face if you do take them.
1. Metabolism boosting pills,(natural or not),stress your central nervous system and increase your risk of heart attack and stroke.
2. Fat absorbing pills are proven to be100%useless and shown to damage the intestines in multiple double-blind research studies.
3. Carbohydrate blocking pills make about as much sense as swallowing antidote so you can safely swig down a glass of poison.
4. Last but not least–These products do NOT produce lasting weight loss. In fact, the vast majority of people taking these products never lose any weight at all!
Stay healthy and focus on eating the right foods. Every time you go to put something in your mouth, ask yourself if it's a food that will benefit you nutritionally. If you decide it's not nutritionally dense then choose something that is and eat so you'll feel good.
Make it a great day!
