Question: Hi, my name is Jarry, and I am starting a diet. I just recently bought diet pills. Are they safe and do they work? Thanks for you help, ahead of time for any Information you can provide me with.
Answer: We don’t like to recommend taking diet pills to anyone. Unless you are morbidly obese and under a doctor’s supervision, there are better ways to lose weight. Diet and exercise is the age-old maxim for losing weight. If the body takes in more calories than it works off, it stores the excess as fat. There is no magic pill.
If you are serious about losing weight, begin an exercise program and modify your diet. We know. It sounds easy. It is not. That’s why there are so many diet hucksters out there selling instant weight loss to hopeful fat people. Start with easy walking and increase time and distance in small increments each week. For instance, start with 10-minute walks and increase to 15-minutes over a few weeks. Increase intensity as you gather strength. Build from there. Find sports and activities you like that keep you off the couch and moving. Mow your lawn; clean out the garage; take up tennis or racquet ball. Cut fat in your diet and you will automatically cut calories. Cut down on portion sizes. Check out our home page for different ways to eat and exercise for the way to healthy weight loss. Diet pills may work for a while but not without side effects. For lifetime weight control, the answer is diet and exercise.
