As we all know, the United States groaning under a huge problem with the weight load. A massive 65 percent of Americans are classified as overweight including 31 per cent who are classified as obese. Colorado is the only state that has obesity rate under 20 percent.
Due to these alarming figures are a lot of people who are looking for products that will help them shed those unwanted pounds. Unfortunately, many of the products purchased will not help them achieve long-term results they want.
If you are trying to not only shed pounds, but keep them off, then you have to avoid the fads:
First Slimming machines. This may surprise you, but the question is the fact that many of us are seduced by those late-night TV commercial that promise us that by using the latest and best slimming machine we have athletes body weeks. The truth is, most people who buy them to put them in after a few days of use. And those who actually use them often end up injured as a result of overtime to certain muscle groups. Too many of these machines just target one muscle group - like abs or buttocks.
Second Fasting and fasting as a diet. People who want to lose excess weight many believe that starving yourself, or at least severely limit your intake of calorie counting will help them lose weight. The truth is that it reduces your metabolic rate (this is important), which means that you actually burn fat more slowly. Many recent "fad" diets like the Atkins diet or the grapefruit diet is really just a slightly modified fasting diet.
3rd Dietary Supplements. There is no reliable research to back up supplement manufacturers requirements. These suppliers take a scattergun approach to produce their products, hoping they'll stumble upon the right combination. They often do not even know what the active ingredients are. Even banned substances such as Ephedra is commonly found in these pills. Do you really want to be pumping your body full of chemicals you know nothing about?
4th Medications. Because they are the doctors, most people think pills are completely safe to use. However, any drug can have many side effects. Particularly worrying is the fact that many of the diet drugs were approved in the beginning, but then canceled later, after it is established that can actually cause death. Phen-Fen is a warning and an example to us all.
So, what should you be looking for in a weight loss program?
First, and I can not stress strongly enough, safety should be your number one priority. Questions you should always ask is: Is it natural? Is it food? Has it been tested?
Another addition to further improve physical activity. You can go to the gym and get a workout, or just go for a more physically demanding daily routine: walk instead of driving, using stairs instead of the elevator, taking a few minutes to stretch and do a few jumping jacks, there are some quick and easy examples of physical activity you do each day.
Finally a diet supplement to help activate the chemical and physiological cause for the weight of your body. Taciau do not go just for the chemical solutions and miracle diet pills, talk to your doctor about natural.
