Weight Loss Pills are not the Magic Bullet
The idea of losing weight quickly is certainly appealing; however, it simply is not realistic. Over the counter weight loss pills can have harmful side effects, including increased blood pressure, restlessness, insomnia, headaches, dizziness, dry mouth, nausea and constipation. What is more, you can't take weight loss pills on an ongoing basis without becoming addicted to them and most people who stop taking these medications at some point regain some or even all the weight they had lost.
This does not mean that weight loss pills can't help you lose weight but it does mean you can't rely on them alone or expect that taking a few pills will enable you to get in shape and never gain back unwanted weight. You need to consistently eat right in order to reach your weight loss goals. If you stick to a healthy diet that includes plenty of vegetables, fruit and whole grain foods, you will lose weight over time. You can take weight loss pills in addition to eating right if you want to lose weight even faster but taking weight loss pills should not be your primary weight loss strategy.
Additionally, anyone who has a health condition or is taking prescription medication will want to talk to a doctor before taking weight loss pills. Medicines are potent even if they can be purchased over the counter so never assume it is OK to take diet pills if you are already using one or more types of medication. At the same time, give us a call if you want advice on how to create a personalized healthy diet plan that meets your needs.
