Best Slimming Pills In Nigeria
Best Slimming Pills In Nigeria.
When it comes to weight loss, there is no shortage of pills, drinks, and supplements claiming to help the weight fall off. But do weight loss pills help, and are they safe?
There are so many weight loss products out there. Many of these products and programs are misleading. They exploit many products as being healthy saying they will help you to lose weight when actually that is the complete opposite. Foods such as – wheat bread, fat free butter, salad dressings, diet soda, diet bread, and many others are unhealthy and sometimes cause your body to STORE FAT.
One big problem I have with diet programs is they make people completely dependent on them. They may help you lose weight but they do at such a slow pace. You continue to pour your hard earned money into their program month after month and once you’re unable to pay for their services you gain the weight right back. This is because they don’t teach people the true keys to weight loss management. They don’t teach you how to lose weight and keep the weight off!!!

Today, things are different. Apart from chronic health conditions which force many to go on diet, women who even have less than 28 Body Mass Index, BMI, in Nigeria are being advised to lose weight by every means possible. The craving to be slim has, however, caused damages to many women unknowingly. Some have even lost their lives in the process.
Although it is natural for anyone trying to lose weight to want to lose it very quickly, it can take time and effort; unfortunately, many people are impatient to get into shape and want a quick-fix diet. Slimming pills appear to be taking over the gradual and healthy weight loss programme as recommended by medical experts. But how safe are these weight loss supplements said to be natural and plant-based?
According to World Health Organisation, WHO, an unhealthy diet is one of the major risk factors for a range of chronic diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes and other conditions linked to obesity. However, specific recommendations for a healthy diet include eating more fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts and grains; cutting down on salt, sugar and fats. It is also advisable to choose unsaturated fats, instead of saturated fats and towards the elimination of trans-fatty acids.
Evidence abounds that people who lose weight gradually and steadily like 1 to 2 pounds per week are more successful at keeping weight off. Health watchers are worried that healthy weight loss is not just about a diet or programme but also about on-going lifestyle that includes long-term changes in daily eating and exercise habits.
According to medical experts, some diet pills may cause stroke and panic attacks. And worrisome is the fact that it is easy to buy the pills online and without a doctor’s prescription. Ordinarily, the pills should be prescribed to those with a BMI of 28 and above, or those who have health problems associated with weight and for a short-term period. In essence, diet pills should only be used under medical supervision.
But although, it is illegal to sell prescription drugs without a prescription in Nigeria, slimming pills are sold without prescription even online. The pills can be addictive and therefore difficult to withdraw from. They may well suppress your appetite, but studies have shown that the chemicals in the diet drugs, which act like adrenalin by increasing the heart rate, can also affect your blood pressure, give you mood swings, cause tremors, severe headaches and heart attack or stroke.
According to an Assistant Director of Dietetics, Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital, Ile Ife, Osun State, Dr Ogbonna Obinna, said there is no benefit in taking slimming pills because they pose grave danger in the long run to users.
Nature determines our morphological expression (i.e. our body size). If you inherited a large body frame, the best you can do is to watch what you eat”, the expert said. “There is no gain in taking slimming pills, because it is like solving one problem and creating more serious problems at the end.
“One of the side effect of the pills is elevated blood pressure which if not controlled can lead to acute/chronic renal failure, that is, your kidneys may stop functioning. The victim may either struggle for survival by dialysis or total kidney transplant and these are very expensive.”
According to him, there’s no magic bullet for losing weight as the most effective way to lose weight and keep it up is through lifestyle changes. “Eat a healthy low-calorie diet with lots of fruits and vegetables and be physically active”, he advised. “Lifestyle and diet modifications are the answer and not necessarily taking slimming pills that you get addicted to. There is need for you to change your sedentary activities and become more active based on advice from your physiotherapist.“
There is need for you to change or modify your dietary pattern by cutting down on your carbohydrates intake especially refined foods and simple sugars, pastries etc with professional counsel from a dietician.
