Special notes on this health quiz:
Is there a magic potion, diet pill or weight loss supplement that can melt pounds safely from the body? If there were such a miraculous option for weight loss, it would not only be front page news - people would be taking out massive loans in order to pay for the weight loss cure.
It certainly wouldn't be cheap. No, oh no - because certain manufacturers would make certain of that. This magic solution for weight loss would automatically do away with current miracle dietpills and solutions on today's current marketplace.
So if a cure for obesity and weight gain isn't available, why do so many individuals sink their hard-earned money into diet and weight loss supplements with empty promises that at times, leaves them with life-long health issues?
In their heart-of-heart, they really do realize that miracles for weight loss do not exist. These products are purchased to make the weight loss process less painful and more doable.
They trust or at minimum, hope that the product will curb appetite, make them feel more energetic so that they keep focused on losing weight.
While 99.9% of the weight loss supplements and diet pills are empty suits, that 1% of products may assist the dieter in safely sticking to their weight loss plan and losing the excess weight.
That 1% must be doctor-prescribed and monitored because even the safest of weight loss prescriptions comes with risks. If the amount of weight needed to be lost is significant, then it might be worth the minute risk of stroke - just one of the warnings accompanying many prescriptionweight loss supplements.
But if the dieter has 100 pounds or less to lose, their willpower is key in completing their goals to lose the excess pounds. But going 'cold turkey' it cuts the risks of potential health risks associated with prescription drugs.
These days, individuals are readily willing to take anything that is sold over the counter. Some live on pain medications. But all come with significant health risks. Let's review just 3 commonly consumed over the counter drugs and their potential risks to the body:
