Weight Loss Supplements You Can Trust

Which weight loss supplements would you put your trust in?

All weight loss pills work under the same slogan of ‘we can help you to lose weight’, but here’s the thing – what actually separates the good from the bad? The weak from the strong? The reputable from the bogus? What is the decision maker?

One key definer are the unwelcome side effects on your body.

No slimmer wants to experience them. No matter how strong their desire is to lose excess weight. Yet time and time again you read reports and blogs from slimmer’s who have experienced just that.

And the reason? For many it is misguidance. Searchers who have been misled by all the diet pill hype and have invested without thoroughly researching these pills first.

Now one good thing that has come out of this scenario is the coverage given to them on blogs. Yes these bogus weight loss pills may once have been the ‘latest dietary craze’ but all these blogs and articles have gone on to set the record straight. To increase consumers awareness on which dietary supplements do work.

But we are straying from the point. What we are trying to prove here is how impacting these side effects can be against a weight loss supplements success.

Take the following supplements:

  • Adipex: confusions, hallucinations, aggression, nausea, diarrhoea, palpitations, tremors, convulsions
  • Alli: gas, incontinence, oily spotting, muscle cramps, gall bladder problems
  • Ephedra: severe skin reactions, insomnia, nausea, diarrhoea, seizures, hyperthermia, strokes
  • Meridia: nausea, constipation, menstrual cramps, headaches, seizures, abnormal bruising/bleeding, jaundice, chest pains
  • Reductil: abdominal pain, diarrhoea, nausea, palpitations, hypertension, impotence, seizures, tachycardia, kidney disorders.

See what we mean? How willing would you be to invest in their product, when their weight loss diet pill can cause all these.

Luckily there are a range of weight loss supplements that can offer you successful weight loss with none of the risks of the above diet pills: Proactol™, UniqueHoodia, LIPObind and many others.

And the strength of their position in the weight loss market as a successful weight loss supplement can be seen in the variety of their campaigns and competitions.

Take natural fat binder Proactol™.

They have recently teamed up with YouAndYourWedding to offer brides the chance of winning a free spa day at Champney. A luxurious spa franchise that is scattered across the UK, and is reputed for offering a range of pampering treatments.

But this is not all they are offering in this competition. Proactol™ is also offering the lucky winner a year’s free supply of Proactol™.

Now to a person who is aware of Proactol™’s reputation for being a 100% organic, side effect free fat binder, this competition is a dream come true.

In one competition brides can accomplish their dreams of getting in shapeLook Your Best on Your Wedding Day for their wedding, whilst also winning a day that is dedicated to pampering them.

Now if you tried to offer this same competition with any of the above weight loss pills who cause side effects, the number of consumers who would be interested in winning a year’s free supply of it would be limited.

Why would they want a year’s worth of a diet pill that can do all that?

So offer your body the security of a weight loss supplement that is committed to your health and weight loss goals, and put all the other bogus ones behind you.


Caralluma Fimbriata – What You Need to Know.

Caralluma fimbriata is a succulent plant, in the cactus family, that has been used as a natural appetite suppressant in India for centuries.

It’s a new arrival in the family of cactii and succulent plants that are becoming increasingly popular for their appetite suppressant, and weight loss properties, as well as their ability to lower blood sugar. Supplements made from the popular hoodia gordonii cactus from the Kalahari Desert in Africa, are, for example, growing in popularity and usage in the U.S. and Europe.

Like hoodia, caralluma fimbriata has been used to suppress appetite, and as a portable food for hunting. It is used to suppress hunger and appetite, and enhance endurance throughout India. It is also sometimes considered a “famine food,” used during periods of famine to suppress appetite.

For centuries, people in rural areas of India have eaten Caralluma fimbriata, which grows wild over various parts of the country. Caralluma fimbriata is cooked as a vegetable, used in preserves like chutneys and pickles, or eaten raw. Caralluma fimbriata is believed to block the activity of several enzymes, which then blocks the formation of fat, forcing fat reserves to be burned. Caralluma fimbriata is also believed to have an effect on the appetite control mechanism of the brain. Ayurvedic (traditional Indian medicine) experts have noted that there are no adverse effects when using Caralluma fimbriata, and the plant has no known toxicity.

A patented, tested extract of Caralluma fimbriata has been developed and standardized. by a company called Gencor. The extract delivers the plant in a concentrated form.

One of the only products available which combines the patented extract of Caralluma fimbriata with EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) from green tea. Together they reportedly have a synergistic effect on appetite control and weight loss. In several clinical trials this was shown to be effective in reducing body fat through appetite control.

This natural secret blocks fat formation and suppresses appetite so you’re just not hungry. Increases your energy levels so you actually burn off more fat.

Without a doubt one of the best strategies for losing body fat and increasing muscle mass. A double bonus.

Is Dehydration Halting Your Weight Loss?

Trying to lose weight? You’ve stuck to your diet and stalled on a weight loss plateau? The first thing to check is your water intake. Research suggests that most people unknowingly suffer from mild, chronic dehydration, and you could be one of them!



So why should you care? Because water is an essential ingredient for your weight loss. In fact, water is needed for a wide range of the body’s biochemical processes, but lets just look at what water does for dieters:

Water is essential for your body to metabolize stored fat into energy. Your body’s metabolism can be slowed by even relatively mild levels of dehydration. The slower your metabolism, the slower your weight loss (and the greater your fatigue), until eventually your weight loss just crawls to a halt, and you hit the dreaded diet plateau.

Water is a natural appetite suppressant. In the hypothalamus, a region in your brain that controls appetites and cravings, the control centers for hunger and thirst are located next to each other, and there tends to be some overlap. This has both advantages and disadvantages for the dieter: on the down side, it means that chronic mild dehydration can confuse these control mechanisms, leading to feelings of hunger, rather than thirst. But on a positive note, it means you can use water to reduce your appetite. For example, in one University of Washington study, drinking a glass of water reduced nighttime hunger cravings for most of the dieters studied.

Water is an essential component of the processes that enable muscle to contract. This means that water helps to maintain muscle tone. Better muscle tone means a better looking body, and isn’t that what dieting and weight loss is about?

Water also helps to prevent the sagging skin that often follows weight loss – water plumps the skin cells, giving the skin a younger and healthier look.

Water helps rid the body of waste. During weight loss, the body has a lot more waste to get rid of, as a byproduct of all that metabolized fat. So adequate water is essential to your health while dieting.

Water can even help with constipation. When the body gets too little water, it siphons what it needs from within, particularly from the colon. This leads to constipation. But normal bowel function usually returns with adequate water intake.

More generally, mild dehydration can cause a number of health problems, in addition to your diet plateau. The symptoms of mild dehydration can include: –

  • Headaches & feeling light headed, as dehydration interferes with normal body processes, including waste disposal.
  • Fatigue, as the body’s metabolism is slowed – mild dehydration is probably the most common cause of daytime fatigue.
  • Hunger & cravings due to weakening of the thirst mechanism
  • Fluid retention as your body tries to hold on to the water it already has
  • Constipation, as the body works to conserve its internal water sources

Not a pretty picture, is it? But once you get your water in balance, you reach the “breakthrough point”, a concept pioneered by Dr. Peter Lindner, a California obesity expert. Once you’ve reached the breakthrough point, fluid retention eases, the liver and endocrine system start to function more effectively, you will start to regain your natural thirst and your hunger cravings will be significantly reduced. And so the end result of reaching and sustaining the breakthrough point in your water balance is that your body is able to metabolize fat more effectively.

So how much water should you drink daily, for a healthy and ‘adequate’ intake? First, a couple of basic principles:
The easiest way to tell if you are drinking enough water is to monitor the color of your urine: It should be clear or a very pale yellow in color. (but note that some supplements and medications may also affect your urine color).

  1. Get in to the habit of drinking regular and adequate amounts of water. Never wait to drink until you’re thirsty, because if you’re feeling thirsty, then dehydration has already started to occur!
  2. Having said that, an adequate water intake for a sedentary but normal-weight adult during cool weather, is generally recognized as 8 x 8 oz glasses.

Remember, you need additional water in hot weather, when you lose more water through sweat.

You also need additional water when you exercise. Athletes attempt to enhance their performance by maintaining an optimal fluid balance while exercising, estimated to require 6 to 12 oz of fluid at 15 to 20 minute intervals. Even if you’re not concerned about your athletic performance, you should consume a similar amount of water when exercising, in order to maintain adequate hydration.

And if you’re overweight, you’ll need an extra glass of water for each 25 pounds overweight, because the extra weight creates extra metabolic demand

But how do you manage to drink so much water? A typical recommendation from the weight loss experts is 3 glasses of water with every meal. That’s 3 glasses with breakfast, 3 with lunch, and 3 with dinner. Plus, of course, additional regular water between meals when you’re exercising or when its hot. It’s quite daunting to drink 3 glasses at a sitting, so spread them out, drink 1 glass 10-20 minutes before a meal, 1 glass during your meal (I recommend adding a squeeze of lemon juice), 1 glass after your meal. Plus it helps to replenish your hydration levels if your drink water after each visit to the restroom. Plus after brushing your teeth. These “events” are just reminder triggers.

So if you’re dieting, stalled on a weight loss plateau, or suffering some of the classic symptoms of dehydration, do, first of all, ensure that you have an adequate water intake. It could be the ‘missing ingredient’ in your diet regime.
