There are only two ways that drinks have been developed to aid us in losing weight. Either the drink has little or no calories or the drink is formulated (naturally or synthetically) to suppress the appetite.
Low Calorie or No Calorie Drinks
Most of the time you will find these are heavily marketed products on television and other forms of visual advertising. When I see a product using so much marketing to brand itself as a way to lose weight or control caloric intake (for example a brand like diet coke) I feel it is an attempt to make us believe we are getting results that aren’t there.
How many of you have known people for years that drink diet soda but still seem to be over weight? Using low calorie drinks (natural or synthetic) doesn’t address the problem of over eating in fact it seems it give the user a false since of sacrifice allowing them to take it up a notch on whatever they are eating.
Not to mention the questionable health risks of artificial sweeteners like aspartame which some sources claim has unfavorable mental and physical side effects.
A recent study published in the peer-reviewed journal Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism found that many artificial sweeteners, which act on the hormones, can cause an increased craving for sugar, leading to a higher risk for obesity and related illnesses like diabetes and heart disease. The research continues and that seems to always be the case with synthetic products until someone really gets hurt.
Without spreading unsubstantiated claims and making arguments about the safety of low or no calorie drinks let’s keep it simple. Drinking a beverage that is calorie free does not and never will tackle the weight problem at its source: food cravings. So in my opinion…
The Only Weight Loss Drinks That Work Will Suppress The Appetite
There are some synthetic as well as natural offerings in the area of appetite suppression. I scoured the internet looking for products on the market that use synthetic appetite suppression ingredients and I had a difficult time. If you look at the side effects of synthetic prescriptions that suppress appetite you may understand why synthetic appetite suppression could be bad for your health.
I personally avoid anything derived from a laboratory as much as possible. But if you should come across a product that uses a synthetic ingredient as its appetite suppressor please comment I would find that very interesting.
Natural appetite suppression is much more agreeable in my opinion and very effective. Supplements such as garcinia cambogia, hoodia gordonii, caralluma fimbriata, foods that have pectin like apples, and any high fiber food will also help curb the appetite.
I am not going to say that there is never any negative news on natural supplements we all know that is not the truth. Sooner or later someone is going to have an allergic reaction to a natural supplement and that can’t be controlled any more than we can control peanut or shellfish allergies. So they are not perfect but being food products I believe they are inherently safer than the alternative.
Appetite Suppression Gets To The Heart Of The Matter
If you are not hungry you are less likely to eat more than you need. Carbohydrate cravings are comparable to drug abuse withdrawals in that you almost are helpless against them. You will use any reason to justify getting your satisfaction from high carb foods if you don’t have the willpower and many people don’t.
Suppressing the appetite quiets those cravings and some supplements or foods even make the stomach feel full like garcinia cambogia. So right around 10:30 in the morning while you’re at work you don’t get the carb crash that sends you reeling to get more food in your stomach at lunch time.
Using an appetite suppressant daily will overtime get you safe and lasting results (provided you are not allergic to them) that are virtually free of side effects.
If You Are Thinking Of Trying A Weight Loss Drink I Have A Suggestion…
I have used this product myself for four months and it has been nothing short of extraordinary. The formulation is well balanced and the taste is palatable if you like coffee. I like the ease of simply drinking coffee daily which most people do anyway and getting weight loss benefits from doing it.
I liked it so much I became a distributor for the company that sells it. So if you are interested the product is risk free for 30 days you can try it and if you feel it didn’t stand up to its claims send the empty box back for a full refund.
