Maria asks…

Is it safe to work out right after taking a weight loss supplement? ?

I have recently started taking a weight loss supplement. I’m not sure if it’s safe to work out (run) right after taking the supplement. Please tell me if thats okay or not. Thanks!

Maricela answers:

Well generally you should be OK, but as well all weight loss supplements have a risk of death with simply taking the drug, natural weight loss, or weight loss hypnosis would be an easier/healthier way for you to lose some weight. You can read about weight loss hypnosis and natural weight loss diets here http://www.losetheweightonline.com/?page_id=174 but, you shouldn’t die 😉

Thomas asks…

What are the best weight loss supplements/pills?

I am looking to get more cut/lean. I was thinking about taking a weight loss supplement. What are the best ones out there? I lift 5 times a week. Will these supplements affect my weight lifting?

Maricela answers:

No weight loss pill works over the long term. Plus it is not very cost effective. One bottle is usually around 100 bucks and will only last for three weeks. And they all suggest you stay on them for 12 weeks at least. You do the math. Changing your eating habits will have the best results.

Carol asks…

What is the best inexpensive weight loss supplement?

I am really trying to get myself to lose 30 to 40 lbs by May or June and I’m looking for a good weight loss supplement to help me out.

Hydroxycut
Hydroxistim
Slim quick

Those are a few I have checked out but not sure if there is a better one than one of those just really need some feedback on which is the best and most effective.

Maricela answers:

Alli is the only FDA approved OTC diet pill. Orlistat (prescription Alli) and phentermine (Adipex) are the only two FDA prescription drugs. Sibutramine was pulled last year.
Everything else out there including the name knockoffs are unapproved and unproven, loaded with caffeine and vitamins.
You can lose the weight in 3 to 4 months if you do it right.
80% of weight loss is diet.
You can eat a healthy diet and lose weight.
You can eat a healthy diet and exercise and lose more weight.
You can exercise and eat a poor diet and not lose and even gain weight.
A good healthy diet high in fiber, lean meats, eggs, complex carbohydrates, whole grains, antioxidant foods, healthy beverages and low in added sugar and salt help people lose weight, lower cholesterol, increase energy, improve brain function, lower blood pressure, reduce cancer risk and have a more positive lifestyle!
You need to eat a lot more food and a lot more fiber!
Diets that exclude foods from any food group are fad diets and do not lead to permanent weight loss or solve any other health issues.
First, try to kick your fiber intake to 40 grams of both soluble and insoluble fiber.
Whatever you do, get your fiber from your food, not from a jar.
Fruits and vegetables have good fiber in them. A high fiber diet increases the metabolism.
Try a breakfast cereal with at least 20% of recommended daily allowance of fiber in it. They are usually low in sugar so there is a double benefit. Blueberries or raspberries on top add more fiber and antioxidants. But fresh or frozen, not the kind in syrup.
Raw nuts are a great source of fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants. Avocados are the best.
Lots of beans, peas, and grains are high fiber. Whole grain breads. Fiber kicks up the metabolism so you actually burn more calories. These foods will give you more gas in the beginning but if eaten daily, the bacteria in the digestive tract will elevate lowering the gas output.
This will get you on the path for a healthy daily bowel movement. This helps clean the system and aids healthy digestion.
I know it goes against everything you’ve heard but eating lots of the right foods will actually help you lose weight!
Next, take an age appropriate basic daily multivitamin. Don’t look at your multivitamin as nutrition but more as an insurance policy. Think of it as filling in the gaps in your daily diet as opposed to a primary source of nutrients.
You have to drink lots of water to be healthy. But you can disguise it. Fill your glass all the way full with ice before pouring low sugar beverages. Try iced green tea with a splash of orange juice in it for sweet. More antioxidants. Add lemon juice to water for flavor. Slice up a cucumber and float it in pitcher of water. Gives it salty fresh taste. But you must drink up to 100 oz of water daily to help your body get rid of waste and the natural toxins.
Last, you need to get 7-10 hours of quality sleep depending on your age. All recent sleep studies report a connection between poor sleep and weight gain.
You must combine a healthy diet with exercise to multiply the benefit. Whether an hour a day in the weight room or just a 30 minute brisk walk every day, the added benefit of a regular exercise program really do increase and accelerate healthy weight loss.

I lost 30 pounds in 5 months by spending my money at the grocery and gym and have kept it off for two years now. 3% of people that attempt weight loss lose it and keep it off for two years. It is not easy. It is a lifestyle change.
Good luck and good health.

Paul asks…

When can I expect to see results if I cut calories and take a weight loss supplement?

I know I will lose weight faster if I work out and cut calories— but I just don’t want to. However, for the past week I have been eating smaller portions and not snacking, and taking a weight loss supplement pill I got from the vitamin store.
When can I expect to see some weight loss?

Maricela answers:

You need to take out 500 calories everyday for a week to just lose 1 pound.

So say you eat 500 calories less PLUS excerising right you could lose up to 2 or 3 pounds.

Pills dont work FYI.

You cant just eat whatever you want, not exercise and expect to lose weight. Thats just the harsh reality of it.

Mary asks…

How old do you have to be to buy weight loss drugs/supplements?

I’m looking into buying some sort of diet or weight loss supplement but I don’t know how old you have to be to buy them at the store. I live in Ohio if that matters.

Maricela answers:

Well, there are probably better ways than supplements. This program worked for me. Dropped pounds steadily and in a healthy way.
Hey good luck wahtever you do!
