I’m sure your doctor won’t tell you this but did you know that according to new research even being a little bit overweight can kill you? Having extra pounds on your body is harmful. According to researchers from the National Cancer Institute, Baby Boomers who are even a slight pudgy are more likely to die prematurely than those that are at a healthy weight.
As a result many people out there are turning to prescription drugs to lose weight as the growing obsession in men and woman with the obesity crisis. Many people are tired of all the over-the-counter dietary supplements, which in most cases don’t work or for a very short time. People are turning to prescription drugs for weight loss because of the perception that they are more strictly regulated and therefore safer. This was mostly due to the FDA’s warning to consumers a few years ago to stop taking the dietary supplement ephedra, which was sold over the counter. People are led to believe that off-label drugs will help them lose weight. The FDA approved Fenfluramine for short term weight loss then withdrew it as it was linked to heart-valve problems.
For obese people looking for long term weight loss the FDA has approved the drugs Meridia and Xenical, but many doctors are reluctant to prescribe Xenical because it can produce distasteful side effects, such as abdominal cramping, gas and anal leakage.
I’ve been a heath advisor for 3 plus years now and the only products out there for true permanent weight loss and management are the Medifast products from Take Shape for Life. There are many clinical trials that have proven that these products work and help not only lose weight but get healthy and help reduce and even eliminate medications people are taking to combat all the illnesses we are getting from all the fast food and even-?food sold in stores that is recommended as “good for you”.
If you are on the Medifast 5-in-1 program and losing weight and getting healthy, that’s great. If your not, you need to be. I take my Medifast supplements every day to keep my weight off and feel healthy and will never go back because nothing else out there works.
