Just a real short ditty about some people’s obsession with losing weight and their… methods.
I’m far from having the “perfect” body, but I do what I can to eat a balanced meal everyday1 while getting active all at the same time.2 With that being said, I don’t understand the obsession with diet pills.
Having said that, I’m actually fearful of diet pills. It’s like with sleeping pills, where if you go overboard with anything that’s on a pill, you suffer from drug overdose or anything similar or worse. I’d probably try drinking those diet teas3 but again, they’ll be difficult to get in to a habit of drinking them. It’s the same with drinking those diet shakes and what not too.
I’ve always felt that if we’re speaking of diet pills just to lose weight, I think those who need to lose about 20 lbs. or more should probably resort to diet pills if needed. But if you’re only going to lose a few pounds, say 10 lbs or less, then you can get away with just changing your eating habits and simply stay active through exercise/gym or just doing some sort of physical activity on a daily basis. I’m beginning to think that those who get so obsessive with those diet pills when you only need to lose like less than 10 lbs or so is leaning more towards vanity, rather than with health.
There’s no easy way for you to lose weight. It’s sad to say that it’s easy to gain weight, but doing the opposite is a lot harder. I was once obese, with my highest weight almost nearing 200 lbs. However, it was when I was diagnosed with diabetes that I started to lose a lot of weight,4 which is the wrong way to lose weight and a bad sign as well. From there I started to maintain my health the natural way through proper eating and exercise.
I don’t understand diet pills and the obsession with them. I don’t at all.
