Beware of the quick fix…

Posted on 11th December, 2015 | Comments Off on Beware of the quick fix…

Time for a rethink?As more and more Australians grapple with weight problems and obesity, the number of weight loss products on the shelves of supermarkets, pharmacies and gyms grows accordingly. These products have very tempting claims, that indicate the user will strip fat almost effortlessly, and in a very short time. But do they work and if so, what is the ingredient that produces this effect? Many do work to produce results quickly but they contain caffeinated ingredients such as Guarana, Green Tea and Citrus aurantium. Which can be an issue for caffeine sensitive people, causing sleeplessness and anxiety. Others are more sinister, containing Pseudoephedrine, which increases metabolism and causes nervousness, increased heart rate, stomach pain, dizziness and breathing difficulties.

While losing weight is great idea – in fact it’s essential for the long term health of many – there are no quick fixes. Fast weight loss often results in a rebound weight gain later. Many dieters gain weight over time due to yo-yo dieting and quick fixes.

The right diet, the right lifestyle and right supplements will get you there in a sustainable way over the longer term. This is the better way. If you are looking for ideas to lose weight, try the sustainable and healthy way with a qualified Naturopath.
