7 Healthy Habits Better Than Diet Pills

Weight Loss Drugs

Weight-loss drugs/pills are currently attracting enormous amounts of attention, but the following expert tips are a better bet for dropping pounds for good.

What do you think of when you read a headline about a new diet pill?

Are you really filled with hope that this will be ‘THE’ weight-loss magic you’ve been waiting for, or do your eyes glaze over as you quickly dismiss it as complete rubbish? According to new research presented at this year’s joint meeting of the International Society of Endocrinology and the Endocrine Society, the weight-loss pill which expands in your stomach, signaling your brain that you’re full, showing a huge promise for those struggling to shed weight.

“Given the excellent safety profile observed in the study, weight loss pills have the potential to fulfill the unmet need for a safe and effective weight-loss agent”

Effective and safe? Although we’ve heard this before,  safety of course, is of the utmost key importance when it comes to ingesting a pill on a daily basis. After all, it was only April 2015 when Eloise Aimee Parry, 21, from Shrewsbury tragically died from taking something she believed was a slimming pill, ‘burned up from the inside’ after taking tablets believed to contain highly toxic chemical dinitrophenol.

“Diet pills, especially over-the-counter, can be harmful and dangerous when not under the supervision of a trained medical professional,”  “Make sure you consult with your doctor to discuss the pros and cons. Not everyone is an appropriate candidate for weight loss drugs.”

The nutritionists alternative to pills and diet fads: a healthier lifestyle. “I always encourage my clients to lose weight without the aid of weight loss supplements or drugs, because I believe it is not only more empowering that way, but it also forces you to make permanent behavior changes,” says Moskovitz.

“It’s easy to get swept up into the quick-fix weight loss claims we hear so often today,” says Glassman. “But making meaningful diet and lifestyle changes are the key to long-term weight-loss success.”

So the experts rightfully agree: Making behavior changes is the key to permanent weight-loss. If you want to flaunt that bathing suit on the beach like a true supermodel, not only this summer but for the next several years then follow Glassman’s advice for diving head-first into a healthy lifestyle:

1. Healthy Habit : Drink up.

Dieters who replace sweetened drinks with water have been shown to lose more weight. Staying hydrated helps to keep feelings of hunger at bay and fills up your stomach.

Tips: Bored by plain H2O? Add some fresh lemon or cucumber slices to give it some flavor!

2. Healthy Habit : Eat breakfast.

Start every day with a balanced breakfast that combines a high-fiber starch source with lean protein to help rev your metabolism, stabilize your blood sugar, control your hunger, and boost your energy levels.

Tips: Every now and then try something new, maybe a veggie omelet with reduced-fat cheese and a slice of whole wheat toast, or top whole wheat toast with 1 tablespoon of nut butter.

3. Healthy Habit : Go nuts!

Tree nuts like almonds are full of healthy fat, protein, and fiber, making them a perfect snack to keep you satisfied until your next meal.

Tips: Toss a handful into your bag for an easy on-the-go snack to keep you energized on busy days.

4. Healthy Habit : Embrace the snack attack.

Waiting too long between meals can slow your metabolism, increase hunger, and lead you to reach for that mid-afternoon candy bar!

Tips: Aim to eat 3 small meals and 2 snacks throughout the day to keep your metabolism revved and those cravings at bay.

5. Healthy Habit : Sleep tight. 

Experts agree that lack of sleep has been correlated to an increased risk of obesity, and when you’re tired, you tend to crave those high-fat, sugary foods too.

Tips: Getting adequate sleep (7-8 hours) has added benefits for aging and disease prevention.

6. Healthy Habit : Keep track.

Take out that old diary or maybe buy yourself a new one and start writing down all the foods you eat. Journaling can help you stay accountable and keep you on track.

Tips: Yes, even note down them sneaking handfuls of M&Ms when no one was watching! It is very important you monitor what you’re consuming.

7. Healthy Habit : Veg out.

Eat lots of veggies, but also remember to relax! Stress increases cortisol levels in the body, which in turn increase abdominal fat. Say sayonara to stress, and you’ll also wave goodbye to unwanted pounds!

    Well to be honest Garcinia Cambogia has truly worked for me. I have lost 10 Ibs in 1 month, though it claims that the weight loss is also possible without following a diet routine which is true but in such case the weight loss would be minimal.

    Diet pills are actually dangerous, in most cases you don’t even know whats in them. Dubai has very strict regulations when it comes to getting any diet products approved. The government does look into these things, not just for the health reasons but also it may have none halal ingredients in them. Thx for bringing attention to this much needed topic.
