‘Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fattest of them all’
Though my mirror would not magically utter my name, my eyes would move unconsciously to the ugly bulge that has formed near the middle part of my body. I know I am the one. For years, I have continued to hate the mirror. I even attempted a lot many times to do away with even traces of the thing. But, my wife wouldn’t allow (women and mirrors go hand in hand).
Finally, I understood that closing my eyes to the fat won’t make me less fat. Weight loss drug was one such step which I undertook to do away with the fat. A weight loss drug works by ddecreasing appetite, increasing satisfaction, decreasing fat absorption and increasing the rate of metabolism.
Weight loss drugs refer to over-the-counter medication or prescription drugs. The drugs are manufactured from a large number of chemical as well as herbal formulations such as amphetamines, appetite suppressants, benzene derivatives, herbal extracts, hormones and many more.
The use of weight loss drugs, to the confusion of users, does not offer exactly similar benefits to all. While some may benefit from it, others may not. This is a mystery that scientists till date are trying to decipher. Scientists have come to the conclusion that obesity or overweight is a complex illness. There is not only the physical determinant to it such as larger intake of food or more fat absorption. There are behavioural and psychological aspects to the illness as well. Therefore, it is imperative that obesity be treated by taking the entire picture in mind.
A few drugs have had enough research; certain others are still remaining to be studied in depth. The key to the use of weight loss drug is to examine properly if the drug is effective. Only properly researched drugs must be used to avoid side effects.
Weight loss drugs demand perseverance on the part of user in his dietary and workout habits. It is all the more important that user reduces intakes of fatty foods and consume more of low carb diets. Daily exercise is also important. Muscles are an important method of burning calories. Besides, it gives a good shape to ones body.
Weight loss drugs are not entirely free from drawbacks. Many weight loss drugs have been investigated to result into side effects such as cardiac arrest. Besides, it is often quite tricky to pinpoint if a particular weight loss drug was behind the weight one lost. Any weight loss program is often accompanied by diet and exercise; thus making it difficult to decide the contribution of the drug. Despite these criticisms, the desire of humans to find a magic pill for weight loss continues.
