Health Focus on Weight Loss:
Do natural weight loss medications work? Yes and no.

If you have struggled with weight loss for any significant part of your life, you realize that there are literally thousands of options, as far as weight loss supplements go. From the prescription medications that are literally a form of speed to natural remedies that have speed-like properties, you may have tried many weight loss products with little or no result.

There are a few reasons why this could be so....yes, some of the products are just not based on the way our body works so cannot support us in losing weight effectively. However, others could be of true support, if we avoid the following dieting pitfalls:

Expecting a product to do all the work:
One of the more common reasons natural weight loss remedies (even very good formulations, herbal weight loss products, etc.) may not work to help you achieve permanent, healthy weight loss is that you may be expecting the product to do all the work.

Inevitably, unless there is some sort of medical condition that predisposes one to excess weight, there are lifestyle changes that must be implemented along with any type of diet plan or program, in order to create any type of lasting change in the body.

The human body is designed to maintain a healthy weight so when that does not happen, there is more at work than a diet supplement can correct alone.

Some areas to look at are diet, fitness, stress and water consumption. Most who are overweight got that way partly because of what they have been choosing to eat. It sounds boring, I know, and you have heard it a million times but cutting out junk food and fast foods, eliminating processed foods, white flour, refined sugar and fried foods, and watching sugar, fat and red meat consumption can turn a weight loss problem around.

Reducing calories beyond what is healthy:
Another challenge, particularly if taking those prescription drugs that hype up your metabolism is that you may reduce caloric intake below what is healthy, because the drugs reduce your appetite. The problem with doing this is that the body knows it's being starved eventually and will start holding on to more fat, regardless of how little you eat. Much, much better to reduce calories sensibly and let the weight come off more slowly.

Skipping the pre-diet cleanse: If you are overweight, you are almost surely toxic to a degree. Cleansing the body before starting a diet program can mean the difference between success and failure, particularly if parasites or systemic yeast are hidden causes of weight gain.
