It’s not surprising that someone would want to lose weight extremely fast, like dropping ten or twelve pounds in a week or so. A big wedding coming up or an important job interview… there are many reasons why someone would want to do it but there are health reasons why you shouldn’t, and instead consider a natural weight loss supplement over drugs.
The problem with this speed shredding way of thinking is that most of the time you’ll be looking at either an unhealthy fad diet or worse, drugs. Yes, there are a lot of tempting pharmaceutical products out there with big promises of losing weight really fast but don’t forget about the list of potentially dangerous side effects all of these drugs carry along with them.
Deep down we all realize that the best and safest way of losing weight is to stay with a healthy diet and get some regular exercise a few times a week. Ah, but who can live like this… we want the fat off right now!
What happens during an extreme dieting period, whether using drugs or a fad type of diet is that you’ll be either starving yourself or tricking your mind into believing you are not hungry (this is what most drugs do to your brain).
Going without things you need and love can never last and this is why any weight you may lose during this period will come back. It’s a fact that most people will not only gain the quick weight they lost but will add even more pounds after an extreme dieting period.
Another reason to avoid the drug route is that every one of those pharmaceuticals has warning about a least a few side effects, some mild and some quite dangerous such as tampering with your heart. Another common side effect is the potential of getting addicted if used for prolonged periods of time. Think about that for a minute… you can’t take the drug for very long because there’s a danger of getting addicted to it but if you stop taking it you will no longer be losing the weight you set out to lose in the first place.
How About Going in the Direction of Natural Weight Lose?
Yes, it will take a lot longer to shed the extra fat but at least you’ll have a better chance of keeping it off and you won’t be jeopardizing your health. Do these steps gradually and increase your chances of success:
Eat more often! It’s true that eating 3 or 4 smaller meals a day is better than eating one or two huge meals a day. There is less chance for extra calories to gather and stick around. Also, start to eliminate as much processed foods as possible. Trans fats are a real killer, not only for easy weight gain but also for your arteries and heart health.
Eat more spice. It’s true… spicy foods speed up our metabolism. In fact, every top natural weight loss pill has some kind of hot spice in it. Usually it’s something like capsicum, the extract from red hot pepper plants. Maybe the Mexicans are on to something after all.
Less meat is good for you. Meat isn’t necessarily in moderation. It’s good protein which is ideal if you want to build some muscle, although much of it comes with a lot of fat too.
If you want to speed up the weight loss process you must get some exercise in regularly, and it doesn’t need to be going to a gym. You can simply walk more, start jogging or running lightly up and down the stairs.
For extra help take a supplement. There are 100% natural weight loss supplements that are formulated for effective and safe weight loss. Maybe not as fast working as the pharmaceuticals but at least you won’t be taking drugs to trick your mind into thinking you not hungry.
Hopefully I have given you some things to think about regarding the dangers of rapid, or extreme weight loss.
