Don’t Waste Your Money on Weight Loss Medication

There are so many diet pills, shakes, patches and other forms of weight loss medication on the market that it would be impossible to even make a list. Every natural, herbal, 100 per cent safe, organic and other such claim has been used again and again and again.

However, if one particular weight loss medication really did work, do you think we would have an obesity epidemic? Wouldn’t the word have spread around from doctors and health care professionals down to your girlfriends by now?

The truth is that there is no safe weight loss medication you can take without the supervision of your doctor. There may be some prescription weight loss medication which only a doctor can recommend to you. Again, it comes with side-effects and has to be paired with diet and exercise. Only obese people qualify for it and most people who want to lose five or ten vanity pounds will be strongly advised against it.

Advertising Scams

According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) more than half the ads aired for weight loss medication and other such products had at least one false statement. ‘Lose 10 pounds in a week’, ‘Eat what you want and still lose’ and ‘No exercise and see pounds melt away’ are just a few of the examples of weight loss medication ads. Due tot the fact that these products are not FDA approved, they can make claims as they are thriving in a huge multi-billion dollar industry as Americans get fatter by the day and want an easy way out.

Make it Simple – and Stationary

We want everything in our life to be simple. From drive-through prescription pick ups to drive-thru burgers and movie returns; we just don’t want to get up and move. Mini-refrigerators in your recliner and lights that go on and off when you clap are all leading to a more sedentary lifestyle.

Similarly, we want our weight loss to be simple and stationary too. Sit back with a bag of Cheetos, pop in a weight loss medication pill, watch TV and voila, you are ten pounds lighter.

Even with technology developing by leaps and bounds, there is still no way you can lose weight without eating less and moving more. The math is simple; now all it needs is a great slot to be advertised on late night TV!
