Choosing a Weight Loss Supplement can be Confusing [Not Any More]

Choosing a weight loss supplement

We hope to remove most of that confusion today and help you choose an effective journey for your weight loss. The same path can work whether you plan to lose 10 pounds or 100 pounds. It just may take a little longer.

Keep a positive attitude and stick to the proven science, not fad diets that are here today and gone tomorrow.

Excess Body Weight is a Major Health Issue in America [Here's why]

These findings are taken from an article entitled "Excess Body Weight: A Major Health Issue in America" on cancer.org

"Modern life in America has led many people to eat more unhealthy foods, eat bigger food portions, and be less active. As a result, the number of Americans who are overweight or obese (very overweight) has been rising. More than 1 in 3 American adults is now obese, and another 1 in 3 is overweight. (That's huge, pun intended.)

Being overweight or obese can have far-reaching health consequences.

According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), excess body weight increases a person’s risk for:

  • Heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol levels
  • Stroke
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Sleep apnea and breathing problems
  • Arthritis
  • Low quality of life
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Certain cancers

Overweight and obese people, on average, do not live as long as people who stay at a healthy body weight throughout their lives."

Sooooo, maintaining a healthy body weight has major benefits for our health now and in the long run. Losing that extra weight permanently could help us live longer, having more time with our friends and loved one. That's worth it, right?This applies to our youth, and us "not so young".

So, truth number 1, maintaining a modest weight is good for our health. Moving on...

Popular Weight Loss Pills

Popular weight loss pills commonly used with their pros and cons.

  • Xenical - FDA approved prescription. Lipase inhibitor decreases the absorption of fat. You must follow a low-fat diet to avoid experiencing uncomfortable gas (the winds or farts). Xenical can cause a strong desire to have a bowel movement, fat in stool, frapping oneself (pooping while trying to fart), intense abdominal pain, loose stools, low vitamin D levels, oily rectal discharge and the inability to control a bowel movement. Oops! That could be really embarrassing. 
  • Qsymia - FDA approved prescription. The combination of phentermine and topiramate work together to promote weight loss is a mysterious way. It appears that they suppress your appetite and improve insulin sensitivity. Typically subscribed to those with a body mass index (BMI) over 30 or a BMI of 27 or higher when accompanied with a weight-related condition like type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure. This drug cannot be taken if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, have glaucoma, have thyroid problems, are taking certain medicines, or have certain allergies. Qsymia can cause serious birth defects, increase heart rate, cause suicidal thoughts or actions, cause serious eye problems, mood changes, concentration, memory and speech difficulties, increase acid in the bloodstream, lower blood sugar, cause issues with the central nervous system including seizures, cause kidney stones, and other issues.
  • Saxenda - FDA approved prescription. This drug is injected into your body using a syringe and helps reduce the food intake. This drug can cause thyroid tumors, including cancer, inflammation of the pancreas, gallbladder problems, low blood sugar, increase heart rate, kidney problems, serious allergic reactions, depression or thoughts of suicide, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, headache, vomiting, tiredness, dizziness, and more.
  • Alli - FDA approved over the counter drug. A lower dose of the same drug as Xenical. Similar side effects.
  • And there are about a thousand more diet pills with similar side effects.

Do these weight loss pills work?

  • Some of these popular weight loss pills will help you lose weight through various methods.
  • There are thousands of weight loss pills and supplements available today that claim are effective.
  • Many of these have life-threatening or seriously uncomfortable and embarrassing side effects. Sometimes more side effects than benefits.
  • Do your research if you choose to take any drug or supplement for weight loss. Just because it is not a prescription, doesn't mean it is safe for you to take.
  • Natural is better. All-Natural weight loss supplements are better than chemicals, but not all are safe.

Weight Loss Supplements for Men and Women

Is there a difference between what a man and a woman need to lose weight? For the most part, no. The basic principles work for both men and women. There are however underlying conditions that may make it harder for a man or a woman to lose weight.

Weight Loss For Women

Weight Loss For Women

Women have many issues with weight loss. We will dive into a few now.

Weight Loss Supplements For Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS is a condition that results in hormonal imbalance, irregular periods, and the development of small cysts on one or both ovaries. 7% of adult women suffer from PCOS. *

Many women with PCOS struggle to keep weight off because of the hormonal imbalances, inflammation, and insulin resistance that come along with this condition.

However, losing 5% of your excess weight can actually:

  • Improve insulin resistance
  • Balance out hormone levels
  • Make menstrual cycles more regular and lighter
  • Increase chances of fertility (getting pregnant)
  • Improve your overall quality of life *

Supplements For PCOS Weight Loss

Weight Loss Supplements For Menopause

When many of us reach this age, we feel tired and ready to slow down. This is not the time to slow down. In fact, it's time to step it up. Being more active, eating better, and taking quality supplements could help us live longer.

Excess weight is harder to lose after 50 and during menopause. So it is important to maintain a healthy weight during this phase of life.

You'll feel better and could even live longer.

  1. Consult your doctor before taking on a new exercise routine or diet to make sure there are no underlying health issues (ie: cardiovascular) that could become worse.
  2. All of the items in the list above also apply for women trying to lose weight while going to menopause.
  3. Start Walking every day if possible. Walking briskly for 30 minutes each day will help you lose weight in a flash. And walking in nature is a natural way to relax and rejuvenate your mind and body.
  4. Avoid processed foods and food additives when possible.
  5. Boosting your immune system could help prevent you from getting sick which can help keep you active.
  6. Read more on our Blog about Menopause.

Weight Loss for Men 

Weight loss for men

Let's face it men, you have it much easier than women when it comes to losing weight. Men naturally have more muscle mass which burns more calories.

You've seen them Memes 

Weight loss memes men vs women

A woman stops eating carbs, runs every day, drinks a ton of water, drinks celery juice and protein shakes, and the only weight she loses is in her breasts. A man eats one less bowl of ice cream every night and loses a ton of weight. Not fair!

Following the advice in this article with help guys lose weight for sure. Stay active, drink plenty of water, do full-body workouts (ie: squats, deadlifts, chin-ups, and push ups using dumbbells, exercise bands, or any other weight that's laying around the house), and say no to seconds at meal times. You can do it. Say it with me: "Just one portion for me, thanks. I'm not that hungry today." Pile on the veggies and health proteins and say no to sweets and high calorie beer. (See the Pro Drink Tip at the end of the article) Drinking a glass of water before eating can help reduce your hunger. 

BUT! Make sure you are eating plenty of good quality protein. Your muscles need it to keep up.

Are Weight Loss Pills Safe?

Are weight loss supplements safe? Great question. That depends on the pill for sure. Some weight loss supplements are not safe. We only use all-natural ingredients in our weight loss formulas. You should still check with your doctor before taking any supplement or herb.

Foods To Help With Weight Loss - Eat Right To Lose Weight

This is not rocket surgery. Eat healthy foods and you tend to lose weight and keep it off. Eat junk food and you tend to gain weight and keep it on.

Some conditions, such as insulin resistance, can make it harder for those who eat healthy to lose weight.

Keep It Super Simple (K.I.S.S.)

Reduce Carbs - This is key for anyone attempting to lose weight. For most people, Sugar = Fat. Less Sugar = Less Fat. Simple right?

Eat More Fiber - Naturally occurring fiber in food helps you feel full longer, which prevents you from eating while bored or snacking between meals. Choose foods with high fiber content.

  1. Fruits: Bananas, Guava, Oranges, Apples (with peel), Mangoes, Persimmon, Strawberries, Raspberries.
  2. Vegetables: The darker the color, the better the fiber. Artichokes, Carrots, Beets, Broccoli, Collard Greens, Swiss Chard, Spinach, Artichokes, Sweet and Russet Potatoes.
  3. Beans & Legumes: Add them to soups and salads. Navy Beans, White Beans, Garbanzo Beans, Kidney Beans, Peas, and Lentils.
  4. Whole Grain Bread: 7-Grain, Dark Rye, Cracked Wheat, Pumpernickel, etc... (Make sure Whole Wheat or Whole Grain is the first ingredient)
  5. Nuts: Eat nuts in moderation as a snack or add a few to your salad. Almonds, Pistachios, Pumpkin, and Sunflower Seeds. Go easy, they also have a ton of natural healthy fats.

Eat More Protein - Naturally occurring protein in food helps stabilize blood sugar and increases feelings of being full after a meal. Choose a high-quality protein.

  1. Almonds - One ounce of almonds contains 6 grams of protein and 164 calories. You also get fiber, vitamin E, manganese, and magnesium.
  2. Beef - 3 ounces of lean sirloin steak contains 25 grams of protein and 186 calories. 
  3. Bison - 4 ounces of Bison contains 17 grams of protein and 124 calories.
  4. Broccoli - One cup of chopped broccoli has 3 grams of protein and only 31 calories in addition to Vitamin C, K, Fiber and Potassium.
  5. Chicken Breast - One roasted, skinless chicken breast contains 53 grams of protein and 284 calories.
  6. Cottage Cheese - One cup of low fat contains 28 grams of protein and 163 calories. You also get calcium, phosphorus, selenium, vitamin B12, riboflavin (vitamin B2), and others.
  7. Eggs - One large egg has 6 grams of protein and 78 calories in addition to vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, and antioxidants and nutrients for your brain and eyes.
  8. Greek Yogurt - 6 ounces of greek yogurt, no added sugar contains 17 grams of protein and 100 calories.
  9. Lamb
  10. Oats - One cup of oats contains 11 grams of protein and 307 calories. You also get healthy fibers, magnesium, manganese, thiamine (vitamin B1), and others.
  11. Quinoa - One cup contains 8 grams of protein and 222 calories. You also get vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants. 
  12. Tuna - One small can contains 27 grams of protein and only 128 calories. Chunk Light is healthier than Solid White. It is younger and has absorbed fewer toxins from their environment.
  13. Wild-caught Pacific Salmon
  14. Go organic if you can afford it

Treat Yourself - Take a break a couple of times a month to have a treat. This will help you endure the hard times. 

Intermittent Fasting - Many, in all ages, have found weight loss benefits with intermittent fasting for 16 or more hours every day.

Intermittent Fasting (IF) allows your body to stop running on carbs. Instead your body will tap into your fat storage and use it as fuel. Many have been able to lose weight in a short time with this method of eating.

  • Eat a balanced diet from 11 AM to 7 PM
  • Fast from 7 PM to 11 AM
  • During your fast, drink a lot of water, herbal tea, water with lemon or lime. No sugar or honey. Some use stevia.

Drink The Right Fluids To Lose Weight

Weight Loss Pro Tip - Watch your fluids

Fluids are sneaky. You can eat all the right foods and BLOW IT on your fluids. Take a look at how much sugar you are consuming everyday on your beloved beverages. It might blow your mind.

Pro Tip!
I started taking my coffee without sugar (is that possible?) when I saw how many carbs I was taking in every morning. Mind Blown 🤯

Adult Beverage Tip!
I also started making my adult beverages with stevia instead of simple syrup. (0 vs 13 carbs) Here's my favorite low carb drink recipe.

  • One shot of vodka or gin
  • Half a lemon or lime (depending on my mood)
  • One shot of liquid stevia and top off with seltzer.
Carbs = 64 = BAMM! Compare that to my favorite dark beer (New Holland Dragon's Milk Stout = 325 g carbohydrates. 🍺

 

Starting Now! Take a look for yourself and make wise choices on your fluids. It can make the difference between losing weight and being frustrated trying. Water is your best friend. Find a water you like, and learn to love it. Kick sodas to the curb for a while and only drink them on a special occasion, or with rum :)

Conclusion

Use your brain when choosing a weight loss supplement. Do your research and choose a product you are comfortable with. Consult your doctor before starting a new exercise routine, changing your diet, or taking any drug or supplement. 

Doing it right will help you lose the excess weight and keep it off.

Doing it wrong could cause more harm than good.
