Default 5 Things to Watch Out For When Chosing a Weight Loss Supplement

When you’re shopping for a weight loss supplement there are some
things that you should watch out for because if you’re not careful you
might end up taking a supplement that harmful ingredients or something
that could cause a bad reaction to medicine that you’re already
taking. Because there is no FDA oversight of these supplements
sometimes there are some very unhealthy things in them. Watch out for
these things when you’re at the store picking a weight loss

1. Over the top promises – Any weight loss supplement that promises
that you can eat whatever you want and
still lose weight is a sham. Any weight loss supplement that says you
can lose 10 pounds in seven days or lose
dress sizes in a few days is either lying, or else is not particularly

Usually the products that promise ultra fast weight loss are nothing
more than diuretics that will help flush water
out of your system so that you will drop a few pounds of ‘water
weight’. If you want to lose some water weight
quickly it’s safer to take a simple over the counter diuretic, just
make sure that you don’t get dehydrated.

2. Illegal ingredients – Even though ephedra and other dangerous
weight loss herbs have been outlawed by the
FDA you can still find them used in products that you can buy online
or sometimes in stores that have old stock.
Be on the lookout for Ma Huang, which is a natural form of ephedra,
and ephedra tea because taking any product
with any variation of ephedra in it can cause serious health problems
or even death.

3. Side effects – Some weight loss products can have serious side
effects like high blood pressure or increased
heart rate. Products that contain stimulants like caffeine or Guarana
should be used with caution. Even if the side
effects aren’t life threatening they can be unpleasant. Some herbal
weight loss supplements list side effects like
uncontrollable diarrhea or oily anal discharge.

4. The company’s reputation – It’s worth taking the time to do a
little research to find out more about the company
that makes a particular kind of weight loss supplement. Go to the
company’s website to find out more about them
and then look at some consumer reviews to see if the company is
reputable or not.

5. How long it takes to work – Usually if a product promises to work
within days you’ll know the product is
something you should pass on as too good to be true. But if the
product claims it takes months to be effective you
should pass on those too because that is a good indication that the
product doesn’t really work and the company
just wants to make sure you continue buying it for months before you
catch on.

Beyond those weight loss supplements, you may look at some weight loss
programs that gives you proper diet planto help you for long term
weight loss and maintain it.

There is a very good weight loss program called:"Strip That Fat"
