Should You Give It A Shot: Slimming Pills

We live in a world where people are more than willing to pay hundreds or even thousands to achieve their ideal body instantly. Consequently, today’s markets are flooded with slimming pills. 

You will see advertisements of these “miracle” pills promising to magically get rid of excess fats. Not only that, even on social media you will see influencers raving about how the pills have been suppressing their appetites and pushing them to their followers.

The big question is – do slimming pills really work?

As a baseline, we must remember that losing weight cannot be done overnight. We cannot shed a few pounds miraculously just by popping some pills. In some cases, some of these pills do work ONLY BECAUSE they are combined with regular exercise and a healthy diet.

Slimming pills are marketed to provide a quick-fix to those who desperately want to lose fats. Different slimming pills have different ingredients and thus, promise different things. The promises range from suppressing the appetite to increase metabolic rates. Due to this, they are highly controversial as these promises often risk consumers to suffer from side-effects such as diarrhoea, high blood pressure, or worse, stroke.

Besides harming your health, dependence on slimming pills does not allow you to develop and foster good, long-term habits for a lifestyle change.

Losing weight is all about lifestyle change. When we work hard (and smart) to get rid of fats by eating clean and exercise regularly, we will see that the results are usually more lasting compared to the results of taking pills. Once you stop consuming those pills, there is a high possibility that you will get back what was previously lost. Thus, slimming pills are not sustainable.
