Natural Diet Products – Do They Work?


Tired of looking at the overweight person you’ve allowed yourself to become? Statistically, 1 in 5 men, and 2 in 5 women feel exactly the same way. Further, they’re on record as saying they would consider the exchange of 3 to 5 years of their life for weight loss a fair deal. Even more astoundingly, young girls say they’re more concerned about being overweight than they are of cancer, nuclear war, or the loss of their parents.

Traditionally, when one wants to lose weight, one goes on a diet and/or embarks on some sort of exercise regime. However, both can be incredibly boring. Counting calories also takes some effort to do. Exercise, especially organized exercise like going to the gym, can be time consuming. So what is an overweight person to do when faced with the dilemma of not wanting to diet or exercise, but wanting to lose weight none the less.

Let’s be honest at this point – ultimately there is going to come a time when both those options will have to be taken up. However, in order to get started, you may need to consider some other options. That way, once you’ve begun to lose weight your motivation will step up a notch and you’ll probably find it easier to contemplate a healthier diet and doing some exercise.

Enter the world of diet pills. Whether you love em or consider them a lot of hooey, the fact remains that some of the herbal ingredients in them are scientifically proven to help control weight gain. Some, like Hoodia gordonii , do it by modifying the way the stomach and brain communicate ie they can ‘override’ the stomach’s messages telling the brain it’s hungry. Others, including Coleus forskohlii, a mint like herb found growing naturally on Thailand’s mountain slopes, have proven fat burning properties.

Several minerals can also assist with weight loss. One of them is chromium, a mineral that helps with blood sugar regulation. In combination with insulin, chromium ensures blood sugar is transported to cells where it’s burnt for fuel. Lab tests on rats also indicate it can help improve muscle cell mass.

Glucomannan is a type of dietary fiber produced from the Amorphophallus konjac plant root. It’s usually ground into flour and used in cooking. When consumed, and mixed with fluids in the digestive tract, it swells up to create a feeling of fullness, thus helping to reduce appetite and calorie intake. At the same time, the bulky fiber also helps delay sugar absorption from the intestines.

Like most dietary products, including the Shark Tank keto pill, these compounds and the preparations they’re part of work best in combination with a healthy diet and lifestyle. They’re designed to be an aid to weight loss, not the sole method by which you are trying to lose weight. You can’t continue to fill up on junk food or overeat and expect them to still be able to help you lose weight! Despite any claims manufacturers may make to that effect!
