Rapid Weight Loss: What is it and does it work?

When searching for rapid weight loss programs in Knoxville or anywhere in online, you can find a lot of headlines or advertisements promising you will “Lose 10 Pound in 10 Days!” or that you can “Eat as Much as You Want – and Still drop One Dress Size A Day!”

Consumers spend billions of dollars each year on weight loss products and fad diets promising a slimmer body without any effort. What consumers don’t put much thought on is if these products are safe for human intake, what are the risks that come with them, and are their results really worth it?

First off, let’s discuss the 3 main categories of rapid weight loss “strategies”

  1. Unhealthy diets
    There are a number of these that surfaced but the two most popular would be starvation diets and very low-calorie diets. They both generally revolve around the idea of not having a normal intake so that your body can burn off whatever sugar and fat is left. Some of these diets, like a liquid diet, also promise “Detoxification” of certain organs.
    Our program works on a scientific, safe proven method for rapid weight loss and is physician supervised. Proper monitoring is critical for your optimal weight loss outcome.
  2. Diet pills and supplements
    These supplements generally claim to suppress appetite, increase metabolism, or melt fat. Ours are utilized during certain areas of your weight loss program and carefully monitored.
  3. Creams, devices, clothing, and others
    This category generally consists of rapid weight loss materials that don’t need intake. Whether it’s rubbing cream on your belly or wrapping a vibrating device around it, these ideas promise to help you shed inches off with minimal or no exercise.

Are there any risks and side effects that come with rapid weight loss?

Yes. This stresses your body by creating physical demands. Possible risks and side effects would include:

  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Constipation
  • Hair loss
  • Muscle loss

But does it work?

The FDA has regulated dietary supplements as food rather than medications but they have not regulated claims made by over-the-counter weight loss products. The difference with supplement and drug manufacturers is that the latter has their products tested out to ensure its safety and effectiveness before offering them to the market.

Very low-calorie diets, although unhealthy, have been proven to work for rapid weight loss. Prescription drugs can help but should be paired with a healthy diet and exercise. However, even this has its own risks and side effects. So make sure a Doctor is supervising your weight loss.

So is it a good idea?

Although rapid weight loss has risks, so does obesity. For medical reasons such as this, a strict diet to get to a healthy goal weight is ideal.

Rapid weight loss programs are usually tested out to achieve short-term goals and not for an overall lifestyle change. So if your plan is to lead a healthier life in the long run, look for a weight loss program, such as Better Life Medical’s that is medically tested by doctors and nutritionists to ensure its effectiveness and safety.
