The Weight Loss Fantasy

The weight loss fantasy


In my 10 years of practice I have come

across many patients, who asked me about

weight loss pills. They think that taking

these pills will melt their body fat very fast

without any harmful effects. But let me make it very clear that

these pills are not magic pills for weight loss. Let us

understand how they act and its facts.

Reality check of weight loss pills:

  • 1- Fat absorption-

Some pills work by blocking the absorption

of fats present in your food.



The product claim that you can indulge & take

whatever food you like without worrying about

the portion size & your weight.



#  the pill that blocks your fat absorption also

Interferes in absorption of very important fat

soluble vitamins like A, D, E & k.

# These vitamins are very important for your body metabolism.

#  these vitamins  also act as an antioxidant & help to maintain your immunity.

#  Thus, you will suffer from deficiency of these vitamins, if you are these fat

     Blocking pills.




  • 2-Hunger-

Some pills work by suppressing your hunger.



The product claims that as you don’t feel hungry, you

don’t eat. And, obviously, if you don’t eat, you will lose fat.



# Feeling hunger is not a bad thing. It is a very

basic instinct of any living animal.

# If you are not eating, basically you are starving yourself &

depriving your body from many basic essential nutrients.

# Then, the company making this pill will give you another

pill to take care of those essential nutrients.

I want to just tell you one thing- why to take pills when you

can reduce your weight by taking delicious balance diet.

Come out of your fantasy of a weight loss pills. Be

realistic. Consult a qualified dietitian for a sustainable

weight loss without any harmful effect…
