I am often asked whether diet pills or slimming pills really work. The answer is a qualified yes. Of course diet pills really do work. However, they only work in conjunction with changes in lifestyle. The changes in lifestyle might relate to changes in diet, changes in physical exercise or changes in the use of stress management techniques.
Not all diet pills are the same. The type of appropriate diet pill will vary from person to person. Some diet pills are intended to suppress appetite. Some are intended to boost metabolism. Other slimming pills are meant to attach to fat and expel it before it can be absorbed by your body. Some diet pills are synthetic while others are made from all natural ingredients.
I think that given a choice, finding an all natural diet pill is a better option than synthetic pills. There are natural diet pills for just about all the major types of diet pills. Having said this, there of course are some synthetic diet pills which have been proven to be very safe and effective. Do some research before deciding on a solution that is right for you.
Take for example Hoodia Gordonii – this is an example of a natural diet pill, which is in the appetite suppressant category of weight loss supplements. The effectiveness of this pill was observed long ago by tribesman in Africa, when they were on extended hunting trips. Hoodia Gordonii was used as an appetite suppressant when food was scarce. In the modern day weight loss industry, Hoodia Gordonii has been proven safe and effective as a weight loss supplement, but it is important to pay attention to the product you buy, since there have been reports for just about as long as Hoodia has been on the market, that some versions of this diet pill do not contain the actual active ingredient, or do not contain the proper amount to be effective. Protect yourself by going through a reputable source to ensure that the product you buy is going to be effective.
Another natural diet pill, or perhaps better classified as a diet supplement, is Conjugated Linoleic Acid, or CLA for short. This supplement has been extensively studied, and although opinions vary, there are successful studies reported where using CLA as a diet supplement along with a healthy diet and exercise regime, results in additional weight loss as compared to study groups who did not consume CLA as part of their diet attempts.
Diet pills definitely do work and can help you lose weight. If taken properly and in consultation with your doctor they can play an important role in weight loss. However, diet pills cannot perform a miracle. You also need a healthy lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle includes healthy eating, the utilization of stress management techniques such as deep breathing or yoga and a moderate exercise regime. In order to be successful in your weight loss regime you need to combine the appropriate diet pills with a healthy lifestyle.
