FDA Warning On Weight Loss Products

No doubt we'll have overeaten on Christmas, and we'll continue to do so through the holidays. Then in the new year, we'll all be tempted to lose some weight. We'll schedule workouts at the gym, go on diets, and start taking weight loss products. But stop and read before you take those weight loss products, warns the FDA, as reported in a recent American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) daily news briefing. In general, the FDA "has listed more than 25 weight loss products to avoid, because they contain ingredients that are not labeled, and could cause serious health problems." Some of the ingredients illegally contain drugs that should be sold by prescription only. The news briefing suggests the following links for further reading . . .

People fail in accelerating weight loss due to various reasons such as the lack of a well-managed dieting schedule and also for not practicing physical exercises regularly. Altogether, if you are not aware of comprehensive weight loss information, including weight loss tips, it is also likely to slacken your weight loss regimen and as such you should instantly visit the site and enhance your knowledge on various weight loss details before starting off your anti-obesity regimen.
