Can a pill peel off the pounds?

Saturday, December 10, 2005 by Denise Austin

Do you wish you could pop a magic pill and get fit and trim? Well, keep wishing, say the results of a new study by the U.S. National Institute of Diabetes & Digestive & Kidney Diseases. Researchers compared the weight loss results of subjects taking a weight loss tablet with those of subjects who combined the medication with a healthy lifestyle. Sure enough, the group who changed their eating habits and started exercising lost twice as much as the group who only popped the pills!

It just goes to show you, there's no magic bullet when it comes to managing your weight. While medications may help in extreme cases, changing your lifestyle, in other words, eating right and working out is the only way to take off the pounds and keep them off. So don't get caught up in wishful thinking! Instead, realize there's just one way you're going to get that healthy body you dream about: work for it! Furthermore, there aren't any health risks or nasty side effects caused by eating right and being active!
