Fast weight loss is commonly associated with food deprivation and acute hunger. This does not necessarily have to be so. Find out just how much of each food group you should be eating to maintain a balanced diet and STILL experience fast weight loss.
Common Drugs for Fast Weight Loss
Fast weight loss is the new and exciting buzzword in the current obesity crisis of epidemic proportion. The amount of information out there on weight reduction has never been greater in all of human history. On offer are tantalising solutions ranging from punishing diets to weight loss pills like Phentermine, Duromine, Xenical and Metermine.
Some drugs are even outright dangerous like Reductil (tradename Sibutramine) which incidentally has been withdrawn from the market after the SCOUT (Sibutramine Cardiovascular Outcome Trial) data found that it was connected with 16% more major cardiovascular side effects than the control group. This drug was used partly as an appetite suppressant by increasing post-meal satiety (feeling of fullness). It was even thought to increase resting metabolic rate (the rate at which your body burns fuel) by altering noradrenalin and serotonin reuptake which incidentally regulate energy intake and output. Who could resist the seduction of a fast weight loss solution especially in times of poor self-esteem or desperation?
How Appetite Suppressant Drugs Work
Appetite suppressant drugs act on the hypothalamus and impact upon the responses of dopamine and noradrenaline on the nervous system. Regulating these neurotransmitters and hormones effectively reduce our desire to eat and thus lead to weight loss. Withdrawal from these drugs sometimes lead to rebound hunger and eating with a vengeance which defeats the purpose of taking the drugs in the first place. Although, I must admit I have seen many clients achieve outstanding weight loss with these drugs.
Other drugs like Xenical act by inhibiting fat absorption so that bowel control becomes very difficult if not out-right impossible. Regular use of these drugs lead to reduction of our body’s stores of fat soluble vitamins like vitamins A, D, E and K.
Bariatric Surgery and Lap-banding for Fast Weight Loss
How about putting yourself under the knife and cutting part of your stomach out or strangling your stomach to reduce the amount of food you can eat? Many people testify to the awesome results they have achieved through sheer genius on the part of their surgeons with the scalpel but few whisper in your ear the nausea they experience, vomiting feats, inconveniences like inability to “skull water down like they used to”, difficulty eating salads/beef steaks, risk of bleeding / infection leading to life-threatening peritonitis and most frightening of all the malnutrition they may experience. Saying “yes” to these procedures mean committing to life long vitamins and minerals supplementation to prevent malnutrition.
No doubt fast weight loss has its merits. Who amongst us does not need positive re-enforcement to repeat a desirable behaviour? In weight loss, there is nothing like some “kick-ass” results to motivate us. However, be warned they may come with a high price.
Portion Control for Weight Management
Sometimes, when it comes to losing weight, greater sophistication and higher price tags do mean better and more impressive weight loss results. In fact nothing beats the common sense no frills “keep-it-simple-stupid” approach for managing ones weight. This tool for achieving weight loss I am showing you is non-invasive, inexpensive, uncomplicated, has no side effects and actually works!
