The Four Most Common Myths about Losing Weight with Herbs
1. There is a magic herbal pill that will simply make you lose weight, make pounds melt away, or burn fat. No such herb exists.
2. You can lose weight in a few weeks, and if you keep taking herbal weight-loss products it will stay off.
3. You can lose weight permanently by fasting.
4. All fat is bad. In fact, some fat is essential in your diet. Fat serves as a shock absorber for your internal organs, and it is a good source of stored energy. Most of all it is required to absorb vitamins A, D, E, and K, the fat-soluble vitamins.
A number of the medical problems most associated with general obesity and stress-induced obesity might be aggravated by even moderate intake of caffeinated products. Persons with active heart disease, hypertension (high blood pressure), and gastric ulcers should be particularly aware.
The most effective and the safest weight-loss products combine “anti-fat” nutrients with herbs that will maximize weight loss. Effective and safe programs also curb or eliminate lipogenesis (the process by which your body produces and stores fat), cut sugar and carbohydrate cravings, control your appetite, suppress food intake, burn stored fat without loss of lean body mass, and increase your energy level.
