Are Diet Pills An Answer To Obesity?

5 Responses

One of the major health problems these days seems to be obesity. It has become a problem not only in the US, but also in many other countries like Australia, and even some developing countries. It's one of the leading cause for cardiac arrests and high blood pressure. Although people are becoming aware of this fact, many still take it lightly and take less or no precautionary measures. And those who take, slug it out to burn hundreds of calories. But today, people are inclining towards medication, that is, diet pills and surgeries.

Diet pills are becoming more and more popular these days. My friend, who once used to frequent the gym everyday, suddenly stopped going. Yet, even after discontinuing his course, he maintained his body. When I asked him about it, his answer was diet pills. They were a bit costly, but saved his lot of time everyday. Yeah, these pills can definitely help in saving a lot of time. But what are they?

As the name suggests, these pills help in burning the excessive fat in the body. Different types of pills act differently. Some affect the endocrine system, that is, secretion of some particular hormones that help in using up the stored fat very fast. While some affect the heartbeat rate. But their efficiency is still being questioned around the world. Many of them have prolonged effects. Since many people are turning towards these medicines, many frauds have come up, usurping billions of dollars.

I'm quite sceptical in the use of these drugs. What I feel is, if you really want to lose weight, you need to do it naturally. What these diet pills do is alter our internal body system, which is in a way, going against the nature. Agreed that they may help in saving time and energy, but one cannot overlook their side-effects. Who knows, sometimes they may also prove to be fatal to our lives. I would rather prefer running five kilometers than risking my life.

What do you think?

Once an individual suffers from obesity or overweight, it becomes highly important for him to trigger off weight loss and altogether weight loss is necessary to keep a whole lot of obesity induced disorders, namely, diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure et al at bay. Dieting and regular physical exercises can help in achieving weight loss and altogether the “weight loss” section of the website informs you that weight loss medicines such as Phentermine, Xenical etc can also help you trigger off instant weight loss if taken in accordance with the instructions of the doctor.

You made some good points there. I did a search on the topic and found most people will agree with your blog.

Pills are the worst. It's not natural who knows what it's doing inside your body. Most likely causing cancer and the like. We live in a time where everything is about speed. There are no 5 minute abs 5 minute teeth whiteners etc. If you want something you have to work for it. It takes time. Most things of value take hard work and commitment, whether it be relationships or learning a new language. We have to take responsibilities for our actions and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
