• 60% of Americans want to lose weight. That’s something like 188.3 million people searching for a solution to their weight problems. Of course, all people don’t think alike. So, while some Americans may decide to make healthy lifestyle changes, others will test out the latest diet trend and the rest will order the sketchy new diet pill advertised on the internet.

    With all of the excitement about the possibility of finally meeting our weight loss goals, we forget to ask “is this safe?”

    Diet Pill Dangers

    Manufacturers of diet supplements prey on the desperate. They know how badly you want to feel confident in your own skin, so they target you. They make their product more appealing by showing a picture of a man who lost 150lbs and suddenly has a tan and a six pack, but what they don’t tell you is how it will harm your body.

    Side Effects: Diet pills are known to cause a multitude of serious health issues, many of which are irreversible and take away from your quality of life. These health issues include, but are not limited to: Increased heart rate

     

    • Increased blood pressure levels
    • Insomnia
    • Nervousness
    • Headaches
    • Dizziness
    • Weakness
    • Changes in taste or a metallic taste in the mouth
    • Dry mouth
    • Numbness of the skin
    • Nausea
    • Abdominal cramping
    • Diarrhea and other gastrointestinal issues
    • Liver problems

    Vitamin Deficiency: Many necessary vitamins, such as A, D, E and K, are stored in our body fat and in our liver. Often time diet pills will block the absorption fat, which sounds good but actually isn’t. If the diet pills are blocking the absorption of all fat, key vitamins are be excreted from the body and therefore causing a deficiency.

    No Weight Loss: Some diet pill companies have caught on to the fact that people feel more comfortable taking supplements if they sound healthy. What they do is mark their product as herbal and sell it to you at top dollar. These pills often have no effect on the body whatsoever and are just used to make money.

    No Regulation: Diet pills sold as health supplements are unregulated by the FDA. Without any regulation, more and more pills with adverse effects, are being pushed into the market. There have been numerous cases of people suffering heart disease, liver disease and worse as a direct result of unregulated diet pills.
