To Keep or Not to Keep?
All diet pills are not created equally and should be banned. In fact, when Hydroxycut was discovered to be the cause of stroke, aneurysm, and heart attacks in thousands of dieters who took the supplement, the FDA didn’t ban it. In fact, they allowed the manufacturers of the diet supplement to re-package it and resell it. Diet pills are extremely expensive, they don’t work, and they continue the cycle of denial for dieters. Most people believe all you have to do is pop a pill and magically the weight will disappear. It’s understandable then that most of the world believes that all diet pills are the cure for obesity.
Cost Outweighs Benefits
The top selling diet pills on the market (and even the not so top selling ones) are expensive. What makes them costly is not only their initial price, but the monthly payments. Diet pills come in 30-day supplies. The top selling diet pills cost at least $80 bucks. It takes at least 3 months of working out at the gym consistently before seeing results. Eighty dollars a month multiplied by 3 months (minimum) totals $240. Remember, though, the average person doesn’t get “ripped” or “buff” until at least 6 months. So if you multiply 6 times 80, you’re looking to spend $480 over a six month period!There’s a cheaper, healthier alternative.
A Healthier Alternative
What are dieters trying to achieve when they purchase these diet pills? They’re looking for quick weight loss, convenience, and muscle. Wow. That’s a lot of benefits to get from one tiny little pill. Unfortunately, the solution is not in the pill. But dieters can get those same results in a healthier way. For instance, if they want quick weight loss, they should restrict their carb intake. The key is they have to know which carbs to restrict. They’ll have to restrict their intake of white flour products, rice, potatoes and sugar. Those are called refined carbohydrates. They will need to replace these carbs with complex carbohydrates – meaning fruit, vegetables and high fibrous cereals.
The second thing dieters are looking for in these diet pills is the ability to build muscle. The only way you can build muscle is through resistance training.
The last thing and probably one of the most important thing dieters are looking for is ease and convenience. Dieters can still find convenience in preparing everyday foods. If you cut carbs and still expect to lose weight eating 32 ounces of steak, you are in for a big surprise. Buy a measuring cup, measuring spoon, and a food scale. Practice weighing 4 ounces of protein so that you can learn how to eyeball the same amount in a restaurant. Practice putting 1 cup of cereal or brown rice in your measuring cup so that when you eat out, you will be able to accurately assess how much to eat. These suggestions will guarantee you fast and healthy weight loss.
