diet pills fall into two main categories according to how you access
them, Prescription pills and Over-the-Counter
Weight Loss Pills

obesity drugs- anorexiants, often referred to as weight loss
are available only through a doctor’s
weight-loss drugs, they are stringently controlled by the FDA.
prescribed mainly for morbid obesity.
loss pills are FDA approved as effective in the short term.
effectiveness becomes less significant at 4-6 months.
common weight-loss drugs include Adipex, Bontril,
Didrex and Meridia which is
the only one FDA approved weight-loss pill for long term use.
OTC pill : Most
of the advertised diet pills fall in this category.
particular diets pills are highly controversial amongst weight loss
expert both being manufactures and critics. This really confuses the
Do Weight Loss Pills Work?
Yes, a good number of them do work with
pills both prescription and OTC try to find ways to introduce a gap
between calorie intake and calorie expenditure. We can further group
them according to their action as;
Carbs, Starch or Fat Inhibitors,
and Appetite Suppressants.
Inhibitor pills are designed to reduce the digestion of the calorie
proving foods. This may be by blocking digestion of that food such that
some significant amounts of it pass through the digestive tract without
being broken down. Consequently this reduces the amount of calories
target to reduce the ability of the digestive system to optimally
breakdown these foods by mainly interfering with the digestive enzyme
involved. For example, carbohydrate blockers inhibit the metabolism
process of carbs into stored body fats.
active ingredient in such weight loss pills is, an enzyme found in dry
kidney beans, that inhibits the alpha amylase the principle enzyme in
carbohydrates breakdown to blood sugar. Theoretically the science
behind such a pill is sound, unfortunately, in practice, its success is
found to be widely varying. It is supposed that the failure may be due
to the blocker/inhibitor having a bond targeted by digestive juices
such that in the stomach it is rendered ineffective.
for example is a weight loss drug that act as lipases or fat
inhibitors. They work in the gastric tract to reduce up to 30% of Fats
from being absorbed and digested. Interestingly it is recommended that
you combine it with a low fat diet.
Fat burning pills raise body’s metabolism causing it to use
more calories. This weight loss pill is also known as a thermogenic. If
their action can be sustained they can prove to be quite
argument against them is that the effect they develop does not result
to significant weight loss. More research is required.
An appetite suppressants weight loss pills on the other hand tries to
play down your appetite for food. They may get to act on the nervous
system to deter hunger signals from being translated as a need for
try to give a satiety feel. Fiber based pills can be very
effective to this end with minimal side effects. Insoluble fiber, a
complex starch is a necessary nutrient that on hydration expands. It
can be used with some significant weight loss in the short
suppresants are probably the more successful of the other OTCs.
weight loss pills are used against the risks of morbid obesity but
under medical supervision. Since they are drugs they do have side
effect and a doctor weighs the risk presented by both before using it
in a weight loss program.
such a case the doctor would be trying to jump start your weight loss
and quickly reducing risks of obesity. Such a prescription would have
nearly little effect if not accompanied by a healthy balanced diet with
controlled calorie intake and some level of weight loss exercising.
some weight loss pills may work, it is still correct to say none of
them will result to permanent weight loss. By themselves they are not a
solutions and only significant in the short term.
Side Effects of Diet Pills
Weight loss pills exhibit side effect to users. Prescription diet pills
have not shown any side effects that cannot be reversed or fatal so far
in significant numbers. This is with the exception of PhenFen which was
detected early and appropriately controlled.
OTC pills have not shown significant anomalies. The risk here though is
more on losing your money on a bogus diet pill. Weight loss pills are
part of over a $30 billion weight loss market. It is estimated over $6
billion is spent on bogus and scam products - so buyer beware.
effects of weight loss pills include restlessness, nervousness,
euphoria, dry mouth, constipation, diarrhea, tremor, anxiety,
dizziness, and even impotence. In rare case, seizure and stroke occur
in unhealthy individuals. Weight loss pills should not be used by
children or expectant mothers unless under medical supervision.

lifestyle changing weight loss program gives you only a small 5% chance
of NOT regaining nearly all your weight back. See
