Using Drugs for Weight Loss

Drugs that Induce Weight Loss

Recent studies have shown that more people are getting overweight every year. This happens to both adults as well as kids who have just started in school.

A lot of factors cause this to happen such as genetics, overeating, the type of food taken into the body and as people age, the metabolism slows down making it harder than before to burn the food that was just consumed.

In the 1950’s until the late 90’s, doctors prescribed drugs for weight loss. The drug works by increasing the serotonin levels in the brain that makes the brain believe that the stomach is already full and thus, increases the person’s metabolic rate.

It was only after scientists discovered that these drugs had side effects and were related to cause heart valve disease that these were taken off the shelves.

Right now, new drugs were developed and prescribed by doctors and many of which are still waiting for FDA approval.

Most people have known friends or family members who have tried using diet pills and have seen tremendous improvement. The idea that a simple drug can change everything without the need to change the diet or sacrificing anything is very tempting.

Consumers spend millions of dollars every year and has given drug companies a lot of money making and selling the drug.

Diet pills can be purchased either over-the-counter or prescribed by a doctor. Even with the advances in medical technology, these drugs can still cause a lot of health related problems which can be unpleasant such as diarrhea and vomiting, harmful such as tightness in the chest and urinary tract problems and fatal such as a heart attack or a stroke.

An overdose of the diet pills can cause tremors, confusion, hallucinations, shallow breathing, renal failure, heart attack and convulsions.

The side effects vary depending on the lifestyle and health of the person and can be minimized as long as one consults the doctor first before buying it.

Should one decide to stop using the drugs, studies have shown that there are also side effects. These include noticeable mood swings, hyper-activity, and pain in the stomach, insomnia and nightmares, severe irritability, extreme fatigue, depression, nausea, vomiting and trembling.

A lot of clinical tests will show that the drugs taken to lose weight really work. But this can only work if it is done with a low calorie diet and an exercise plan.

A good diet should have food from all the food groups. This should have vitamins, minerals and fiber. A lot can come from oats, rice, potatoes and cereals. The best still come from vegetables and fruits since these have phytochemicals, enzymes and micronutrients that are essential for a healthy diet.

A person can jog every morning or sign up and workout in a gym. Just like taking any medicine, one should first consult the doctor before undergoing any form of exercise.

The best exercise plan should have cardiovascular and weight training exercises. This helps burn calories and increase the muscle to fat ratio that will increase ones metabolism and lose weight.

Xsitepro – my favorite website design software

XSitePro

Xsitepro has got to be my favorite website design software. Here is my story of how I eventually ended up using Xsitepro for my website creations. It took me almost one year to finally realized I’ve been wasting previous time trying to figure out how the software work rather then creating websites. And I hope anyone reading this will not have to go through the wasted time and effort I did in my search for an internet marketing friendly website creation software. The best in the market has to be Xsitepro.

I started using Frontpage at the beginning of my internet marketing foray in Sep 06. Frontpage was pretty ok but after trying to use it for a while and learning the ropes, I hear from reviews and forums that Dreamweaver is “the best” software if you are serious about creating websites.

Well, Dreamweaver was great, but it has a steep learning curve and after months of trying to make it work, I finally gave up. I realized that unless you are creating websites with all the bells and whistles, unless you are creating a sophisticated website, you don’t really want to touch this piece of software. Its quite complicated even with the help of pdfs guides and video tutorials that I spend weeks searching for.

Then I was introduced to Xsitepro. Perhaps by then, I have quite an idea of how sites are created, how things works, but I must say understanding how to use Xsitepro was really a breeze as compared to Dreamweaver or even Frontpage. Here are some of the points I personally like about xsitepro:

  1. The software was built by and created for internet marketers. Its easy to use and you don’t have to know HTML to use it.
  2. It comes with a 400+ page manual and about 80 minutes of video tutorials
  3. You can built a site in hours as compared to days. Xsitepro creates site structure and layout like no other software can in a really short time.
  4. Enables me to focus more on contents of my pages rather than messing with designs and layout.
  5. Comes with really useful features such as Google sitemap generator, affiliate wizard, page redirects and many useful scripts
  6. It has a support forum with thousands of users and you can learn a wealth of knowledge about the software just from the forum.
  7. When I have some challenges, all I need to do is visit the forum. Very often, all I need is to do a search in the forum and most of the times, I could find what I’m searching for
  8. People in the forum are really helpful and in addition with the technical support, I can usually get what I’m searching for within a day or two. This in itself is worth investing in the software as you may know it is really frustrating when you get stuck while building your site.

Get you copy today. You won’t regret it.

Getting your copy now means you get a free upgrade to Xsitepro version two when it is out, which should be real soon. Version two will come more pricey with many new features. So it makes really good sense to invest in your copy of Xsitepro now.
