Is it just me or...?

Friday, January 11, 2013

I am very wary of diet pills I feel that the majority of them are probably not very good for you, even if they do help you to lose weight.

Well, today I was talking to a girl I work with about the weight she has lost recently, and she told me that she was going to a weight loss doctor. Okay, so I asked her what kind of diet he had her on and she proceeds to start listing off all of these pills he has her taking. HmmÖ. So I asked her if she was eating healthier or working out and guess what---no she isnít. She thinks since she is losing weight without doing either of those (22 pounds in just a month) then she obviously doesnít need to.

Am I the only one who thinks thatís an incredibly unhealthy way to lose weight? Or is it ok since she is being supervised by a Doctor?

    I am a Certified Nutritional Coach and the only way to keep the weight loss off is to lose the weight slowly, eat balanced meals, NEVER SKIPPING, and learning with the help of a coach if that is what it takes to make it become a healthy life style the rest of their lives..

Anyone who tells me they can lose weight by restricting calories and giving up many foods they actually like is in for a big disappointment if they think they can restrict themselves the rest of their lives..

You actually need to lose fat and not muscle , muscle revs up your metabolism, some weight training with moderate cardio works, For every Lb of muscle you have your body burns 50-60 calories a day

I feel bad for her

    You are not the only one.
Diet pills do not a healthy lifestyle make even with a Doctor's supervision.
The medical school student who graduates at the bottom of his class is still called Doctor. emoticon
