Weight loss diet

I have yet to start exercising (again), but here I am reading another information about weight loss product called raspberry ketone diet. I don’t have plans of trying it in the near future, I just got curious about the benefits it can give those who need it. Somehow, I’m hoping there’s an alternative for exercise and diet to get back into my old shape.

Now going back to raspberry ketone diet, I learned that aside from raspberry, it has formulation to burn fat, not to mention promote healthy living. The information further showed that it takes as much as four pounds of fresh raspberries to make one capsule of Raspberry Ketones.

And the interesting result of the study is that the unique compound which may help hasten metabolism doesn’t show any unwanted side affects (this I have to ask my doctor). For those who love green tea, green tea is also added as a natural metabolism booster and antioxidant.

Suggested use is one capsule to be taken twice daily with meals. But just a word of advice, consult your family doctor first before taking any medication. It couldn’t hurt to ask your doctor if it is safe for you to be on a diet pill.

Alcohol detox diet

An alcoholic who decides to undergo detoxification program needs to maintain a good diet to combat the withdrawal symptoms that he is expected to experience.

He needs more vitamins as the alcohol detox program progresses. At the initial stage of the treatment, the patient’s diet should include carrots, eggplant, nuts, citrus fruits and soy based foods. The alkaline content of these foods will neutralize acids left by alcohol in the body.

Drink plenty of fluid particularly water. Fluids help flushes toxins in the system. Fried foods, caffeine, burger and hotdogs should be avoided.

As for supplements, extra zinc, magnesium, iron and calcium, and vitamin B and C are recommended.

Side Effects of Diet Pills

Even if I write about diet pills most of the time, I haven’t actually tried one for fear of potential side effects. But I can share my sister’s experience with diet pills. I’ve seen the side effects of diet pills in her. She could have achieved her desired weight, but she looks like a zombie with dark circles under her eye and her skin appeared dry because her drastic weight loss caused her skin to sag. She was conscious of her weight when she was in college so she tried diet pills without me and our mom’s knowledge.
