FDA Warns - Beware Contaminated Weight Loss Products
In late December 2008, the FDA published a warning to consumers about over the counter weight loss products now on the shelves that are contaminated with unapproved drugs and chemicals.
Is It a Hefty New Year?
If you have come out of the holidays and greeted new year with a few (or a lot) of extra pounds – you are not alone. Are you (once again) resolving to change your life? Are you planning to abandon your old ways so dramatically and quickly that you won’t even recognize yourself in a few weeks or months? Are you planning to use a weight loss supplement to help you get started?
Stop! Slow down!
Before making your New Years resolutions, could you begin by accepting as true that you are great just as you are – regardless of your current weight. If you have made some choices you want to change, great! But healthy change starts with self-acceptance.
You have plenty of time – it’s a fresh New Year after all! Make changes, but make them slowly. Think of your goals more as a long march rather than a quick sprint. You want your changes to stick, right? Change takes time. There are NO quick fixes!
Or Healthy New Year?
Do you really beleive a pill or supplement will just magically melt away that extra weight and reshape your body to your ideal? Let’s not kid ourselves. If there was a pill that guaranteed weight loss and was safe – with no diet or exercise required – would more than 65% of Americans still be overweight or obese? I don’t think so.
There is no pill, powder or potion that will make you skinny – but there are many that will make you sick. Please read and save this warning from the FDA.
Now does anybody out there have any smart plans or ideas to share for how to really get healthy in the 2009?
I’ve got one – buy this book – and then put what you learn in it to use!
