Natural Diet Pills
If the thought of taking prescription diet pills scares you, but you'd like a little help in starting your diet, then the new range of natural diet aids could be an option for you.
Natural diet pills are far more gentle and work on holistic principles, rather than the 'golden bullet' approach of traditional medicines.
Firstly, there is the current darling of the celeb circuit, hoodia. Also known as hoodia gordonii, this cactus extract has had spectacular effects on some people. Not only does it diminish hunger pangs, but it also promotes a sense of well-being; ideal if cutting the calories puts you in a bad mood!
Working on a similar principle, chromium picolinate supplements can have a very positive effect on your blood sugar levels. Chromium picolinate works by making insulin more effective in your body, thus diminishing cravings for sugary or carb-laden foods. Note that the RDA of chromium picolinate should not exceed 1200 micrograms (mcg) per day as this may result in liver and kidney problems, and diabetics need medical approval to take it, even though it is classed as a supplement.
Chitosan has fallen out of the limelight recently, but it is a tried and trusted supplement for weight loss. Chitosan causes weight loss by binding fats in the stomach and preventing them from being digested and absorbed. It is best used for those who have a small amount of weight to lose, as the amount of fat is fairly small.
Sea kelp can help kick-start your metabolism, if your diet is lacking in iodine. It works by stimulating the thyroid, but if you are not deficient in iodine it will not have any effect at all.
Lastly there is green tea, which must be the most pleasurable supplement of all to take! Green tea is not a diet pill as such, although it can be an ingredient in general diet supplements. Green tea is just normal tea that has been picked earlier. It has a positive effect on your whole body, which can lead to less anxiety about food and a feeling of fullness. Add a little honey if the bitterness is too much.
