Success may be closer than you think. Granted, don’t expect any major results without the dedication and willingness to put some major effort in order to achieve this goal.
You’re in luck, as we’ve done the homework for you and have the top 3 ways on how to best approach this cumbersome but achievable task. So, let’s shape up these extra pounds.
The Weight Loss Patch
You may view the patch as your trusty ally in weight regulation and appetite control. It’s ease of use is perhaps its most appealing quality, as you essentially stick it on and not worry about it for the next three days – until its time to change to a fresh one. It delivers its active ingredients through the skin, directly into your bloodstream, while bypassing your liver and the digestive system.
This little device may come in particularly handy when you’re vacationing and are expecting to indulge more than usual, while not being able to adhere to your usual eating and exercise routine. It may help in appetite suppression and point you to more healthy eating choices that, ultimately, work in your favor when it comes to those digits on the scale.
Appetite Suppressant Pills
Much has been said about appetite suppressing pills over the years and one overall theme that has emerged is that they can have varying effects and must be approached with great caution.
That said, if an appropriate and safe choice is made, these pills may become your trusty ally in a proper wight loss and desired weight maintenance, once you’ve reached your desired goal.
Studies have shown that there are several active ingredients in some diet pills that may cause such unwanted side effects such as accelerated heart rate, shaky hands and an overall feeling of being wired and uneasy. These ingredients are Ephedra, Ma Huang, and Ephedrine.
An herbal diet pill that has gotten some attention recently is Hoodia Gordonii. Profiled is such reputable tv shows like The Today Show, 60 Minutes and gaining rave reviews from Oprah’s “O” magazine has definitely put it on the map and created a wide-spread intrigue. Based on the authentic plant that comes from the Kalahari desert in South Africa, it said to be fast-acting in its appetite suppressing qualities, presenting results in appetite decline from the very first pill. It’s full effects are said to be felt after one to two weeks of regular use.
While many knock-offs have appeared on the market, following Hoodia’s overwhelming positive reviews, the real product is quite rare, due to the fact that the Hoodia plant needs 7 years in order to mature, until it can produce the appetite supressing qualities, eventually housed within a pill. The number of supplier has been regulated by the African government and the Hoodia supply has thus been quite limited. This explains the fact that the “real thing” costs more than other diet pills on the market.
In fact, Hoodia has had so many positive reports that there are now a lot of knock-off products being marketed to the uninformed ~ especially on the Internet. The real Hoodia is very rare because it takes up to 7 years for the Hoodia plant to mature to a point where it provides appetite suppressant qualities. In addition, the African government is now limiting the amount of Hoodia it exports, meaning only a few suppliers have the real thing. Because Hoodia is so rare, you can expect it to be a little more expensive than other diet pills.
Another pill that has lead to considerable results when it comes to safe and regulated weight loss is Herbal Phentermine. This non-prescription pill is scientifically designed to mimic the effect of its popular prescription version, phentermine. This herbal version is derived from all natural ingredients and poses no threat of unwanted side effects. The pill is also said to increase ones metabolism, which, in itself, burn more calories while boosting one’s energy.
3). Carbohydrate Blockers
Some of you may be interested in weight loss, without being willing to sacrifice their adored indulgencies, which most often include enjoying a bowl of pasta, bread, rice, potatoes and other such dishes that are packed in carbs. In this case, an option to consider as a potential tool of weight loss – or maintenance – is a carbohydrate blocker.
Science has really come through with this, completely natural, method, of stopping the usual conversion of starchy foods into sugar, before it makes its way through our digestive system and finds a permanent home as fat in our stomach, hips, thigs and buttocks. Instead, the carb blockers, derived from white kidney beans, work by neutralizing the Alpha amylase enzyme that digests starch.
One of the many studies that have been conducted in order to determine the true effectiveness of carb blockers and their role in weight loss, was performed at the Northridge Hospital Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA, over a period of eight weeks.
The reported results showed that the average weight loss among participants was 200% over those who were taking a placebo. They also lost an average of 1.5 inches around their waists – 43% than the placebo users. As a bonus, the participants reported to have 13% more energy.
