Use Safe and Effective Supplements for Weight Loss
The proven way to lose weight is to eat less and exercise more. But the soaring rate of obesity shows that this is easier said than done. For many people it is extremely difficult to lose weight and keep the weight off. People need more than advice in order to improve their eating habits and incorporate exercise into their daily routines. Weight loss supplements can help people stay on the right track to lose weight safely and effectively.
Certain supplements work by adding soluble fiber to the diet. Soluble fiber helps with dieting because it makes you feel full, so you eat less. Soluble fiber should generally be taken with generous amounts of water to prevent digestive problems. Natural sources of soluble fiber include apples, oatmeal, beans, and peas. Some weight loss supplements include these natural sources of soluble fiber.
Natural herbal supplements such as acai berry and hoodia can help people lose weight. Acai has the added advantage of being high in anti-oxidants. Hoodia is an appetite suppressant that grows only in the Kalahari Desert of South Africa. Caralluma is a South Asian vegetable that also helps people lose weight by suppressing their appetites. Crave less, eat less! Cayenne, green tea, ginseng, and seaweed are other herbal supplements that have the potential to help people lose weight.
A few natural supplements previously used for weight control have been proven to be too dangerous to use. Ephedra and ephedrine are good examples. But this should not give all supplements a bad name. Scientific research shows that many supplements can be used safely and may even contribute to and enhance overall health.
Lifestyle changes for health and weight control
When combined with changes in behavior, weight loss supplements can be extremely effective. Lifestyle changes that improve health and aid weight control include:
*Eating regular balanced meals. That means three healthy meals a day, including breakfast shortly after waking.
*Making exercise part of daily routine.
*Making time for enjoyable activities.
Supplements and traditional medicine
Anyone who has a serious medical condition, takes prescription medicine, or is under the regular care of a physician should discuss the use of supplements with his or her medical provider. Why? Because supplements may interact badly with certain medical treatments. And because doctors are increasingly sympathetic with the use of supplements and may be able to offer helpful suggestions about how to incorporate supplements, herbs, and vitamins into your personal health program.
Losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight takes a lifelong effort. Supplements can be important elements of a weight loss program when combined with a balanced, healthy diet and moderate amounts of exercise.
