Truth About the Weight Loss Pill Industry

When it comes to losing weight, people are always trying to find a magical weight loss pill. The hope is to find something that will shrink your tummy without having to change your diet or perform any exercise. I’ve taken many a weight loss pill hoping for this result.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a pill out today that can replace a healthy diet and exercise routine. That’s a fact. There’s no way around it. The sooner you accept it, the sooner you will actually begin to lose weight.

When you see a weight loss pill infomercial, don’t be fooled by the beautiful models wearing tiny bathing suits promoting a product. Those models were paid to promote whatever pill, cream, or patch you’re seeing sell for the “low, low price of 29.99”.

Before you purchase a weight loss pill, just use your common sense. If this pill could actually make you lose thirty pounds in thirty days, wouldn’t every obese American be using it? Wouldn’t doctors and physicians have it in their office? Wouldn’t the F.D.A. try and let people know of its great effects on weight? Obviously, this doesn’t happen with 99.9% of the products out there. That’s because most of the promises they make are false, and sometimes just flat out lies.

A company that makes and sells a weight loss pill is in it for one reason—money. They aren’t concerned about the validity of their statements and promises. They’re goal is to sell you the dream. What’s the dream? Like I mentioned earlier, it’s finding a weight loss pill that will cause you to lose incredible amounts of weight without having to change your eating habits and exercise.

A recent craze has been the cortisol products. I talked about this weight loss pill in a previous article. They claim that weight gain is due to stress and that if you control cortisol (the stress hormone) you will begin to lose weight quickly and easily. To top it all off, they insinuate that your body will naturally lose weight in those “tough places” like the abdominal section for men and the lower body/thigh region for women. In reality, this product is pure crap. The company that created “cortislim” is being sued by the F.T.C. for making false and unsubstantiated claims.

Other weight loss pills that have flooded the market are “metabo boosters”. Their main selling point is that with these boosters, you will burn more calories faster by increasing your metabolism. Indeed, you do need to burn more calories than you eat to lose weight. But these products provide no additional benefit and will not “boost your metabolism”. Studies were conducts on a number of these pills and it turned out they provided little to no metabolic increase.

Remember this, and have it ingrained in your mind--You must eat a healthy diet and exercise to lose weight. That’s the truth.
