In modern clinical practice diet pills are prescribed as an adjunct to weight loss. As a rule, diet pills are prescribed in combination with hypo-calorie diet and physical activity. Use of diet pills contributes to the efficient fat burning, body cleansing and increase in vitality.
Given that the use of diet pills helps not only to effectively burn fats but also to decrease blood pressure and to normalize blood sugar level, their use allows to prevent the development of hypertension and diabetes. Patients with obesity are most often prescribed three types of diet pills:
- appetite suppressants;
- fat burners;
- gastrointestinal lipase inhibitors.
A person, taking diet pills that are able to suppress appetite, feels fullness even in minimum consumption of food. During the use of diet pills, suppressing appetite, an adequate eating behavior is formed in a person with overweight. As a result of reduced daily diet, the stomach is reduced and a person needs a small amount of food for saturation. So, even after the discontinuation of diet pills, suppressing appetite, a person continues to eat less than before the anti-obesity therapy.
Diet pills, burning fats stimulate metabolism in the body. Feature of such diet pills is that they burn fats only during intensive physical loads. Therefore, fat burners are most often used by physically active people, engaging in sports. It should be noted that body weight may re-increase after the discontinuation of diet pills, burning fats. Risk of weight gain will increase if a person reduces a motor activity or uses foods high in carbohydrates and fats after the end of using fat burners.
Some diet pills have the property not only to burn fats but also to suppress appetite. As a rule, such diet pills contain natural ingredients only. Therefore, their anorectic effect is mild to moderate. As any other diet pills, used to fight obesity, fat burners with anorectic effect should be taken in combination with diet therapy and physical exercises.
No less popular diet pills are gastrointestinal lipase inhibitors. This type of diet pills prevent the absorption of carbohydrates and fats, entering the body with food. Their efficiency is caused by the fact that about 30% of fats entering with food are excreted unchanged. The main feature of such diet pills is that they should be taken when a large amount of food high in fats is consumed. It is also important that diet pills, preventing fat absorption reduce the absorption of some fat-soluble vitamins. Therefore, it is recommended to additionally take multivitamins, containing fat-soluble vitamins when using such diet pills.
Expediency of using any diet pills is that not only body weight is reduced but also soft tissues of the body are cleansed of toxins in their regular use. Taken into account that obesity contributes to lipid disorders, regular use of diet pills allows not only to reduce body weight but also to normalize lipid profile. Consequently, the use of diet pills helps to decrease the risk of cardiovascular diseases that are one of the major obesity complications of various severity.
Efficiency of diet pills will be increased if a person, suffering from obesity keeps to a low-calorie diet and increases physical activity. In physical loads, the body uses fat accumulations to produce energy. And due to the use of diet pills, proper nutrition will be formed which provides an effective weight control even after the end of anti-obesity therapy.
