There are a lot of people out there who need to lose weight. If you are one of them you may want to try some weight loss pills to jump start your weight loss. This may be a good strategy but what do you really know about the pills you want to use? You need to make sure they are safe to use and good for you.
I know, you want to lose weight to look and feel good, I get that. But, if you go about doing it the wrong way then you will cause yourself more harm than good. My advice? Talk to your doctor about weight loss and safe ways to get it done. Your doctor can give you tips and advice about losing weight the healthy way and can also prescribe doctor recommended weight loss pills for you to try.
You need to start by revamping your diet. Now do not sit there thinking that you will never be able to ever eat anything that tastes good ever again. We are not going there. You will eat healthily and watch your portions but you will pretty much eat anything you want. It is all in the moderation of the good stuff. There are plenty of cookbooks out there that show you how to eat healthily. Pick one and stick to it. If you get bored with it then find another.
Start a healthy recipe file on your laptop, when you find a recipe you like then enter it into your recipe database so you will have it for the long haul. Next, make your meal plan for the week. Yup, pick some of those recipes and make out your grocery list from them so you are sure to have all the ingredients you need to make them on hand when the time comes to make them.
Then make sure you incorporate at least thirty minutes of moderate exercise each and every day of the week. If the weather is good, walk or ride your bike, go hit some tennis balls with some friends or go to the local ball field and smack a softball out to center then run get it. Exercise does not always mean running on a treadmill at the gym. Do something fun.
If your doctor says it is ok to start using diet pills then there are some things you should keep in mind. Like I said You need to stay safe. So, never, ever crush a diet pill or open the capsule to put in your food or drink. This will certainly be a bad idea. You will get too much of the active ingredient in the diet pill and probably make yourself sick.
Always take your pills with the recommended amount of water and stay hydrated throughout the day. diet pills act as a diuretic so get enough water to drink. Dehydration is no fun and can cause other problems.
Never, ever take more than the recommended dosage, you will increase your risk of experiencing the side effects of the drug.
Stop taking the pills if your heart rate increases to 100 beats per minute and do not come down in a reasonable amount of time.
Always follow doctors orders when taking weight loss pills so they work as they were intended.
