How To Lose 9 Pounds Fast: How About Weight Loss Supplements?

Author : Ram Gupta

A lot of people who live metropolitan lifestyles end up being overweight or even obese, and it is more or less a common trend all around the world. As a result, there are millions of people out there desperately trying to find a way to lose 9 pounds fast. This is the reason why the weight loss products industry has become a multi-billion dollar giant. Weight loss supplements offer the ultimate temptation: pop a pill and be done with it and start losing weight fast. This method appeals specifically to our age and attitudes, but how effective is it really?

How Dramatic Are the Results?

If you want to lose 9 pounds fast by using diet supplements, you must understand their full implications. There are dozens of weight loss supplements out there that promise dramatic results, but the simple fact is that no supplement has been manufactured yet which is an effective weight loss solution by itself. All supplements either claim to increase metabolism, suppress appetites or block fat absorption, but none of them will really work unless you first adopt an exercise regime and a healthy diet. Even the most effective supplements can, at best, enhance the effects of an already healthy habit marginally. So, if you think that a weight loss supplement is going to spur your metabolism without the crucial support of a healthy diet, you are on the wrong track.

The Side Effects

One thing that rightly concerns a lot of people is the side effects of weight loss supplements. This is where the news is not good. In an alarming study conducted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of The US recently, it was found that dozens of so-called 'herbal' supplements are using lab-produced prescription drugs and ingredients in their pills and products, in a bid to come up with the perfect weight loss formula. The dosages of some of these ingredients is also reported to be way higher than recommended, and could cause side-effects, especially for people who are already on other forms of medication. Besides, the users are being given incomplete information on the labels about the ingredients of these weight loss supplements, which are being advertised as completely natural and safe. Thermogenic supplements, as well as natural herbs and extracts like Hoodia Godonii and Bitter Orange are all under the scanner for the damage they can potentially cause to the body's vital organs and processes, including liver and heart functions. All in all, do not feel safe with a supplement just because it claims to be 'herbal.' The FDA itself recommends that people should only trust a given brand and product after consulting a qualified physician.

The Verdict

Essentially, all the supposed benefits of weight loss supplements are not the product of some magic formula. They can all be exploited by simply following a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise for about 2-3 hours a week and a regulated diet. In other words, if you are looking at ways to boost your metabolism or suppress your untimely hunger pangs, the choices are not sweating it out in a gym 10 hours a week or popping a pill. There is a healthy middle-course that even the busiest person in the world will be able to find time for. So, what's the final verdict? Considering the potentially damaging side-effects of weight loss supplements, the dubious information and mis-information about them, and their largely unimpressive real benefits, they are best avoided. Instead, try to target a truly natural way to lose weight fast and easy - it works!
