Why Weight Loss Products Dont Work


Did you know that less than 2% of dieters lose weight and then manage to keep it off?

YOU ARE NOT TO BLAME, if you've tried many different diets and weight loss products and have still been unable to lose the weight. Your dieting efforts have been condemned to failure right from the start. Here's why?

The weight loss industry is worth billions of dollars and exists on repeat sales! You lose some weight and get encouraged, put it all back on again and get discouraged, so you need to purchase more of their product or program, and round and round it goes.

A recently released government report states this truth, "According to almost all weight-loss experts, if there is a key to long-term maintenance success, it requires permanent lifestyle changes on the part of the dieter : nutritional eating at moderate caloric levels, a regular physical fitness routine, and abandonment of old habits that may have contributed to weight gain."

Government studies also reveal that people who are successful at weight loss are the ones who make lifestyle changes. If people make only temporary changes, they get temporary results - as they did in the past.

A report published by the Colorado State University found that "Many diet products and programs offer a quick, short-term fix, but there is no "magic bullet" for weight loss. Approximately 50 million Americans go on a diet each year - yet only 5 percent keep the weight they lose off. Many trying to lose weight continually struggle to find an effective weight loss method. However, the only proven way to lose weight and keep it off is by making permanent lifestyle changes. You must eat healthier, watch portion sizes and be active."

It continues - "Many prescription diet medicines have side effects and may not work for long-term weight loss. Over-the-counter pills containing the appetite suppressant PPA (phenylpropanolamine hydrochloride) can raise blood pressure. Over-the-counter pills containing ephedra may cause serious side effects, including dizziness, increased blood pressure or heart rate, chest pain, heart attack, stroke, seizure and even death. Currently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is taking action to limit and/or ban the use of PPA and ephedra in over-the-counter medications and dietary supplements"

Many weight loss products are ineffective, or have undesirable, and sometimes dangerous, side effects. These include bulk fillers, diet patches, electrical muscle stimulators, appetite suppressing eyeglasses, magic weight loss earrings and magnet diet pills.

Reliance on a specific product does not teach healthy, lifelong eating habits. They may help to lose weight temporarily, but that weight will be regained once 'normal' eating patterns are resumed. Using these products helps to avoid eating a healthy diet.

The 'secret' to losing weight and keeping it off is a healthy diet, maintained as a lifestyle. This has another major benefit - increased health.
