I did not ask whether weight loss supplements are utile or futile, but I said they are utile and not futile, if chosen the right way. In todays fast life people do not have time to relax and have healthy diet and healthy life. So they go for fast food, which leads to obesity and fat gain. Being obese or a fatso affects our mental stability, self confidence and social image.
The general myth:
The National Center for Health Statistics 2002 showed that according to BMI (Body Mass Index) 56% Americans adults are obese; this gradually rose to 65% in 2004, and is statically increasing day by day.
In the above scenarios people run for weight loss supplements, and the very first image that develops is dangerous. It is a general thinking that such supplements are dangerous and have many side effects. This general myth is proven wrong, if the right supplements are chosen.
Obesity is gradually becoming an epidemic worldwide, doctors and patients look for methods that help suppress diet, and exercises, which can help people, lose weight through natural methods.
Choosing the right product:
Weight loss in medical terms is reduction of the body mass, due to loss of body fat, adipose tissue or bone mineral deposits, muscles and connective tissues.
When people go for weight loss supplements using strong chemicals, they act rapidly but have many side affects in the long term. They develop problems in human body like blood pressure, heart disease, and/or collection of fat inside the liver.
There are weight loss supplements which are utile, very effective and natural, so have they have less or no side effects. Some of the most popular products are:-
1) Green Tea- Chinese have known the benefits of green tea for hundreds of years. Studies conducted in recent years, almost all of them have shown that green tea decreases fat mass and body weight, with no side effects.
2) Chromium- It is a mineral used for carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism, which burns the body fat and also helps in controlling insulin.
3) Apple Cider Vinegar- It is very popular fat burner and a natural appetite suppressant.
4) Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) - It is a fatty acid found in milk and it decreases body fat and helps in increasing muscles. Therefore overcoming the problem of body weakness during weight loss regime.
5) Protein Supplements- Supplements having protein, reduces hunger (decreasing the calorie consumption), along with that it helps in building muscles in the body.
6) Other products like Chitosan, Ephedra, Bitter Orange- Increase the metabolism, control the appetite and helps in loosing fat, at a slow but affective way.
Slow but effective weight loss supplements:
All of us dream of having a perfectly shaped and healthy body, irrespective of our location and culture. This dream cannot come true in a fortnight; products which declare that their use will get the result in a weeks time are highly enticing, but have adverse and unwanted secondary effects.
There are no rapid reactions on usage of natural weight loss supplements, so the result is seen gradually and at a very slow rate. A little patience, self determination, exercises and less eating, along with supplements can help in the battle to be slim.
