This takes a long time and it's a pretty long process. Getting your product in stores isn't all that easy, and considering your a kid it's gonna be really hard. Because for one not all diets work. It may work for you but not for others. Thats why many diets fail. Plus, it's really expensive to get a copyright and get your product out in stores. Make sure you have tried your products on many different people before running off to get this in stores nationwide. Because like I said this make work for you but not for others. There are many things to consider when you wanna do somehthing like this. And especially since it's a dietary supplement your gonna need to pay extra special attention to how it works.
I assume you're talking about over the counter or OTC diet pills. Some do work however you should understand how they work. Most fall into two major categories there are pills which contain a expandable fibers, inside of your stomach they react with the liquids of your digestive system and form a thick goopy web like structure, made out of fiber. This makes you think you are full so you eat less and lose weight. The second kind prevents your body from absorbing the food so it "passes through" you quicker (i hope that was clear enough). Many of them also contain appetite supressant which sends messages to your brian that surpress signals of hunger, this doesn't work on everyone and is kind of hit or miss.
There are lots of other stimulants which say they help you burn through calories faster giving you more energy. Bsically they are pumping you full of sugar or caffine. In some cases the doses are so high people start acting "off" or "funny" and in some cases you get the shakes. You can become dependant on these sugar or caffine "high" if you aren't carful so have a friend be on the lookout for warning signs.
Most OTC pills work only for a little while it can vary from 3-9 months and after that they start to lose there ability to help you lose weight. So they best strategy is take them while you are exercising and improving your diet. You can get results that are dramatic in a very short time. Just make sure you are learning to maintain it during this time or you will put it all back on.
I have never heard of a multi-vitamin making you lose weight, no less the loss you describe where you are looking sickly.
You are eating a lot and still losing weight - you are very young so I would not think it is a dangerous condition per se, but I would seek a doctors advice, and I think the thyroid would be a good place to start. Weight loss, despite eating a lot sounds like it could be a thyroid condition - there are other symptoms, but a thyroid blood panel from your doctor would be in order (as well as a full blood count) and physical examination.
Diet pills are the same as over the counter energy pills pretty much. They just tweak you out and rev up your nervous system, shrinking your stomach and causing you to be fuller faster and less hungry while boosting your entire system so your hearts working harder in turn which makes your body burn more calories than usual. This is damaging to your brain though and can lead to serious psychosis if not carefully monitored over a period of weeks.
I'd agree with the first person to answer. Supplements on the whole are a gigantic waste of money, especially since a decent diet can give you everything you need to maximize your workouts and health. The only thing I can kind of understand is protein supplements for vegetarians that can have protein deficiencies. Other than that, there really isn't any supplement on the market that I think is can't-miss quality.
"Manufacturers and distributors do not need FDA approval to sell their dietary supplements. This means that FDA does not keep a list of manufacturers, distributors or the dietary supplement products they sell. If you want more detailed information than the label tells you about a specific product, you may contact the manufacturer of that brand directly. The name and address of the manufacturer or distributor can be found on the label of the dietary supplement.
Vitamin products are regulated by FDA as "Dietary Supplements." The law defines dietary supplements, in part, as products taken by mouth that contain a "dietary ingredient" intended to supplement the diet."
Most of the "free samples" aren't free at all.
They get your credit/debit card number, tell you they are going to charge you only $3.95 for a 30 day supply.
Then before you know it they send you another 30 day supply then another and your card gets popped for a couple hundred dollars.
Read the Terms and Conditions found at the bottom of the ads.
Most allow you 14 days from the date of order to cancel. So it takes 4-5-7 days to get to you.
How in the heck are you going to know if they work in a week?
Magic diet pills and weight loss equipment use this technique for profit because......their product doesn't work.
Trust me. Whoever comes up with the true drug or formula that causes stored fat loss without a proper diet and exercise will be the richest and most powerful company in the world.
*LindsayNatural weight loss supplements are a significantly safer alternate choice over a few of the more well known pills and capsules out there on the market. Many supplements are harmful to the body and contain chemicals that if taken in high doses or not monitored, can lead to severe consequences. This is an indigestible fiber that helps in weight loss by binding fat that is ingested and thus blocking its absorption. Most weight loss supplements do not intend to add antioxidants to your weight loss plan but green tea offers powerful antioxidant properties. Supplements To Go is another popular store and they offer free Fed - Ex shipping. Approximately 15% of teenagers are also obese and overweight.
Effexor XR is very effective for anxiety but it is known to cause weight gain and sexual dysfunction. Wellbutrin XL is not effective at all for anxiety and is known to provoke or aggravate it. Wellbutrin XL can also make you very hostile and aggressive. It is best for those with mild to moderate depression without anxiety.
Klonopin, Xanax, and all other benzodiazepines are not meant for daily use beyond 6 to 8 weeks. For "as needed" use when you may only occasionally experience a panic attack, Xanax is a lifesaver. For stress or anxiety that may last a few weeks, I prefer Valium because of the very long half-life which prevents peaks and valleys in the blood concentration like with shorter half-life benzos like Xanax. I avoid Klonopin because even though it does have a longer half-life than Xanax and Ativan, it is too potent to taper off of without severe withdrawal.
It really is a scam. There isn't any pill that will make you lose weight without changing your diet. Weight loss is an overall process and there are no magic answers. Pay no attention to weight loss supplements and pills and all the latest fads. You need to think about many factors but most of them are related to issues we've known about for a very long time. There are many sensible things you can do that will make a tremendous difference over the long term if you need to lose weight. It can be done in a healthy way. This is what has worked for me.
Keeping a food journal really does help. It will give you a much better sense of how much you are eating, and when, and why.
Make a few additional small changes - walk everywhere, always use stairs instead of elevators, walk on escalators, get up and move around at least once an hour if your work or your life in general is sedentary, walk every day, use a pedometer. Walking 10,000 steps a day is a really good idea. Build up to a long brisk walk everyday, or most days. Be more active and watch less TV and spend less time on the computer. Buy one piece of exercise equipment to have at home and be strict with yourself about using it. Sometimes you can find mini-steppers or exercise bikes at second hand stores and thrift stores for just a few dollars.
Start a weight lifting routine. Join a gym. Possibly you can find one that has someone who specializes in weight lifting programs for beginners. Weight lifting will increase your metabolism as well as improve posture and appearance overall. Even if you can't get to the gym you can work out at home using things around the house. Invest in a good weight training book. The Dummies series actually has a good one.
In terms of diet, cut out or reduce things like junk food, pop, fat, fast food. Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, fish. Particularly if you choose a vegetarian lifestyle include natural peanut butter, hummus, dried fruit and nuts. Pay close attention to getting the nutrients your body needs to be healthy.
Make your portion sizes smaller. Use a smaller plate - in our society we have become accustomed to thinking that we need a large plate of food at every meal, and we don't. About quarter of your plate of food should be protein and at least half of it should be veggies.
Learn to count calories. At your current weight and activity level, you may possibly need about 2000 calories or more to maintain your current weight. So you will lose weight at a reasonable and healthy rate if you cut back to about 1600 or 1700 calories a day.
Eat small amounts frequently, rather than three large meals. Never skip breakfast. Include some protein in your breakfast. It will help get you through the day.
Drink plenty of water, at least 8 big glasses of water a day, and more if it is very hot, if you sweat a lot, or if you are exercising intensely, and eliminate fruit juices. Fruit juices have too many calories, so get your vitamins from fresh fruit, not the juice. You will begin to see changes in your body.
Vary your routines. Don't eat the same number of calories every day (vary your calories from 1400 a day to 1900 or 2000 some days), eat a variety of foods, and do different kinds and amounts of exercise. You will lose weight much more efficiently if you mix things up from time to time so that your body doesn't adjust to any one routine.
An area that many people overlook is getting enough sleep. You are much more likely to overeat or to binge eat if you are tired and not well rested, so get enough sleep.
