Slim Fizz

Slim Fizz is effervescent tablets for weight loss that have become popular in the UK since July 2015. The first reviews about Slim Fizz were published in the British tabloid Daily Mail. Due to the publication of Slim Fizz review in the very popular tabloid, thousands of obese men and women learned about new Slim Fizz diet pills in just a few days.

The readers of Daily Mail online-version have left more than 150 comments to Slim Fizz review and actively distributed information about these diet pills in the popular social networks (Facebook and Twitter as well).

Agiotage around the new weight loss product – Slim Fizz was caused by the fact that the author of the review claims that Slim Fizz provides incredibly rapid weight loss. In the Slim Fizz review published in Daily Mail, one can familiarize with a “success story”, as well as pictures of women “before” and “after” Slim Fizz use.

The author of the review claims that Slim Fizz tablets helped to reduce weight by 5lb in just 10 days. Pictures “before” and “after” using Slim Fizz (after weight loss program) demonstrate that the author of the Slim Fizz review really managed to lose weight significantly.

The manufacturer of Slim Fizz claims that this weight loss product helps to “lose” up to 15lb in just 3 months. Unfortunately, the manufacturer of Slim Fizz cannot guarantee that body weight will not increase again after the end of weight loss program.

How does Slim Fizz work?

slim-fizzSlim Fizz effervescent tablets include active substance Glucomannan (alternative name: konjac mannan). Glucomannan is a natural soluble fibre, which well absorbs moisture.

Under the influence of moisture, the amount of glucomannan fibers increases and they are transformed into high-viscosity jelly-like mass. Glucomannan is gradually transformed into jelly within a few minutes after contact with water.

Due to the ability of glucomannan to swell, to increase in volume and to expand in the stomach, it stimulates the feeling of satiety after the oral use.

The uniqueness of Slim Fizz tablets is in that they should be dissolved in water before using. The use of dissolved Slim Fizz tablets eliminates the probability that glucomannan dietary fibers will swell in the esophagus and cause suffocation.

Unlike other glucomannan-containing weight loss products, Slim Fizz works directly in the stomach and does not create potential risks to normal breathing.

The manufacturer of Slim Fizz states that this slimming product does not cause side effects. However, comments about the fact that discomfort in the stomach can occur after Slim Fizz use, can be found in the customers’ reviews.

The new Slim Fizz weight loss tablets are manufactured by the British company, On-Group Ltd. The key brand of this company is proto-col. Under the brand proto-col, different weight loss products such as Slim Fizz, Thermo-Lite, Carb-Lite, L-carnitine, Pure Arginine are promoted.

For several weeks, Slim Fizz effervescent slimming tablets were sold on Amazon. Potential buyers of weight loss products had the possibility to buy Slim Fizz online in the UK, U.S., Canada and other worldwide countries.

Obese Britons had the opportunity to choose “next day delivery” of Slim Fizz. However, less than a month after the start of retail sales, the access to Slim Fizz purchase on Amazon was limited.

The manufacturer of Slim Fizz asserts that due to high demand, the entire stock of Slim Fizz was quickly sold out. Herewith, On-Group Ltd continues to take orders for Slim Fizz tablets, but does not clarify delivery terms of this weight loss product.

It should be noted that Slim Fizz is not the only over the counter slimming product containing soluble dietary fibres – glucomannan.

At Canadian pharmacies, glucomannan-containing weight loss products are sold under the brands Fibre & Weight Balance, Slimit, Beslim Slimphin and many others. In the country you live, glucomannan tablets and capsules can be sold under other trade names.

If you decide to buy glucomannan or other weight loss product online, read the terms of payment and delivery before making the order.

Phentermine in sports

Besides success stories, Phentermine can cause frustration stories. Many cases of accidental or intentional use of Phentermine, because of which an athlete has problems in sports, are annually registered in the USA.

One of the most resonance cases of “successful” Phentermine use occurred in 2007. NBA player Lindsey Benson Hunter, Jr. was disqualified for 10 games because doping test confirmed the presence of Phentermine psychostimulant in his body.

426267Lindsey Hunter stated that his wife is taking Phentermine and he took this CNS stimulant accidentally instead of cold medicine. However, this statement did not affect the decision on his disqualification.

According to the terms of U.S. anti-doping program, in primary detection of Phentermine in the athlete’s body, he is automatically disqualified for 10 games. In repeated use of Phentermine or other psychostimulants as doping, Anti-Doping Agency may decide about lifetime suspension of the athlete from his sport.

For example, the US cyclist Duane Dickey received a one-year suspension in 2002 for the use of Phentermine. In 2010, Duane Dickey repeatedly violated anti-doping rule, received lifetime period of ineligibility and was forced to complete his professional sport career.

Duane Dickey is not the only cyclist for whom Phentermine was not the success story, but the story of frustration.

• In November 2004, 2-year period of ineligibility was received by the cyclist Chelsea Redwood because of Phentermine use. As Chelsea stated, she did not know that Phentermine is a doping, but this statement did not affect the decision of the U.S. Anti-doping Agency.

• In May 2005, the similar story was happened with the cyclist Randy Dreyer. Besides the fact that he was disqualified for two years, his sport results and achievements were canceled.

• One of the last US cyclists for whom a success story has been transformed into a story of defeat was Yoelkis Aira. Because of Phentermine use before competitions, Aira accepted a two-year period of ineligibility. Just as Randy Dreyer, Yoelkis Aira was deprived of all points, medals and sport awards received in previous years.

Before to start using Phentermine, professional athletes should be cautioned about the fact that this psychostimulant can put an end to their successful career.

So that Phentermine helps to create a real success story without the potential risks for sport career, the use of Phentermine pills should be discontinued a few month before the competition.

If you have used Phentermine and now you want to tell your story of successful weight loss, you can leave your review about Phentermine on this blog or on popular obesity forums. Leaving your reviews about Phentermine, you help other people to make a step towards a slim figure.

Natural Phentermine

Thousands of obese people, who have contraindications to Phentermine, try to find a natural alternative to this anorexigenic drug. As a natural Phentermine substitute, over-the-counter dietary supplements containing OTC anorectic agents can be used.

One of the most popular natural Phentermine substitutes is caffeine. Just as Phentermine, caffeine stimulates the central nervous system. Thus, caffeine affects the regions of the brain that regulate hunger and saturation.

The duration and power of caffeine’s anorectic effect is lower than that of Phentermine. However, unlike Phentermine that is contraindicated in many obese people, caffeine-containing drugs can be taken by almost all people suffering from obesity (including children and adolescents).

It should be noted that side effects of caffeine are similar to Phentermine side effects. Just as Phentermine, caffeine increases blood pressure and pulse rate (especially during physical loads).

coffee_citrusCaffeine causes short-term cardiovascular side effects. Thus, within 1-2 hours after using the therapeutic dose of caffeine, cardiovascular side effects disappear.

Besides caffeine, dietary supplements containing over-the-counter appetite suppressant – Synephrine can be used as a natural Phentermine substitute.

High concentration of natural synephrine anorectic is contained in lemon, mandarin, orange, pineapple and tangerine. When producing weight loss supplements, plant extracts, in which the concentration of natural synephrine anorectic is standardized to not less than 10%.

Most often, unripe fruits and ripe fruit peel of citrus aurantium (or bitter orange) are used as a natural source of synephrine. The advantage of citrus aurantium over other citrus fruits is that in addition to synephrine, it contains:

• Hesperidin – improves the condition of veins
• terpenoids – have anti-inflammatory effect
• Tannins – prevent the absorption of fats in the digestive tract

The most value for weight loss represents namely a bioactive substance synephrine. Unlike to Phentermine, which is a synthetic amphetamine-like ingredient, synephrine is a natural amphetamine-like substance, safe for the human body.

Just as natural Phentermine alternatives – caffeine and synephrine suppress and help to control appetite. The key difference between synephrine and caffeine is that synephrine activates fat metabolism and improves blood circulation in adipose tissue.

Thus, natural Phentermine alternative – synephrine stimulates the fat burning both during physical loads and during rest.

Many manufacturers of OTC weight loss supplements include in diet pills several natural Phentermine substitutes including caffeine and synephrine.

Combined diet pills containing several natural appetite suppressants provide more powerful and more prolonged anorectic effect. Thus, they help to lose weight much more rapidly than only one natural anorectic for fighting obesity does.

Given that synephrine and caffeine do not cause severe side effects, one can buy diet pills containing these natural Phentermine substitutes without a prescription.

Liraglutide for weight loss

Liraglutide is an active pharmaceutical ingredient that has been used to produce injectable drugs since 2010. The first Liraglutide-containing drug was approved by the FDA in January 2010. At the US pharmacies, this drug is sold under the brand Victoza.

For more than 5 years, Victoza (Liraglutide) injections are prescribed to improve glycemic control in obese Americans aged 18 and older. Each milliliter of Victoza solution contains 6mg of active substance Liraglutide.

The same dose of Liraglutide is contained in Saxenda injectable solution, which appeared at the US pharmaceutical market in April 2015. Victoza and Saxenda injectable drugs contain the same doses of Liraglutide, but they were approved for the treatment of different diseases.

Victoza is prescribed only to diabetic patients, but Saxenda solution is approved for weight loss in patients with BMI of 27 and more. It should be noted that Saxenda drug could be prescribed to patients, whose obesity is associated with type 2 diabetes.

Given the fact that active ingredient Liraglutide stimulates the insulin secretion and reduces the blood glucose level, diabetic patients using Saxenda (Liraglutide) for weight loss may require dose reduction of antidiabetic drugs.

How does Liraglutide help to reduce body weight?

Liraglutide for weight loss

The structural formula and effects of active substance Liraglutide are similar to the formula and effects of natural hormone GLP-1. In human body, this hormone is produced in response to food intake.

During clinical trials, it was established the fact that regular subcutaneous administration of Liraglutide helps to reduce hunger and to increase saturation.

Researchers suppose that Liraglutide injections stimulate the regions of the brain regulating hunger and saturation like oral anorectics.

Herewith, Liraglutide has an undeniable advantage over oral anorectic drugs. After all, providing anorexigenic and antidiabetic effects, it helps lose weight and simultaneously reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.

Some facts of the results of Saxenda (Liraglutide) clinical trials

The results of clinical trials have demonstrated that:

  • About 50% of patients, used Saxenda for 3 years, were able to reduce their body weight by at least 5% of the original.
  • About 25% of obese people, used Saxenda for 3 years, reduced their body weight by at least 10% of original.
  • About 13% of participants of clinical trials stopped using Saxenda because of severe side effects.

After the successful completion of the long-term clinical trials of Saxenda, Novo Nordisk company has sent the results of this study in the FDA (US), EMA (EU), Health Canada and National Food and Drug Administrations of dozens of other countries around the world.

Having studied the results of clinical trials, the US FDA has concluded that the benefits of Saxenda for the health of obese patients outweigh potential risks. Thus, the FDA has approved Saxenda as an obesity treatment and Novo Nordisk has received the marketing authorization for Saxenda in the USA.

In the middle of 2015, new injectable weight loss drug – Saxenda (Liraglutide) has already been approved in the USA, Canada and Europe. However, the launch of Saxenda sales was announced only in the USA. Thus, in the near term we should expect the start of Saxenda sales in Canada and all 28 EU member states.

Fast weight loss

A lot of obese men and women dream of fast weight loss. However, because of objective and subjective reasons, not everyone manages to achieve a fast and sustained weight loss.

Unfortunately, even expensive non-surgical cosmetic procedures cannot guarantee that obesity will not progress again after the fast weight loss.

Therefore, planning a fast weight loss, think in advance how to maintain a normal body weight when the desired result will be achieved.

Fast weight loss

Those, who first wondered about weight loss, should experiment with various diets for fast weight loss. When making a diet plan, take into account the fact that a balanced daily diet should contain up to 100 grams of fats.

Value of vegetable and animal fats is that they contain free fatty acids, phosphatides, enzymes, sterols, aromatic and flavoring substances, vitamins, proteins, pigments and other nutrients required for normal metabolism

The body need for fats depends on many factors including the person’s age, intensity of physical loads, metabolism features, predisposition to leanness or fatness.

For making a meal plan, which could help to lose weight, one can consult a professional dietitian or find diet plans for fast weight loss on the Internet.

Given the fact that daily calorie intake is different in children and adults, diet plan for fast weight loss for men and women differs from diet plan for kids and teens.

For fast weight loss, it is important not only to adhere to a healthy diet, but also to maintain a normal metabolism. To improve metabolism, it is recommended to use dietary supplements that stimulate transformation of fats into energy and thereby promoting a fast weight loss.

Most dietary supplements for fast weight loss are produced in diet pills, shakes and tea. To dietary supplements help rapidly to lose weight, they should be taken regularly several times per day.

Liquid weight loss supplements are inconvenient to take outside the home. Therefore, an absolute majority of socially active people opt for diet pills for fast weight loss.

Diets that work and diet pills are important components of complex weight loss program, which should include daily exercises and regular physical loads.

Even a short workout before, during or after work gives an additional impulse to increase metabolism, thereby speeding up the destruction of adipose tissue, without which fast weight loss is impossible.

Fast intestinal cleansing

Adult human body contains a huge amount of slags and toxins accumulated in the internal organs for decades.

Given the fact that most part of harmful substances enter the body with food, slags and toxins are accumulated mainly in the intestines and stomach.

That is why cleansing the body of harmful substances should be started with cleansing and healing of the digestive tract.

Fast intestinal cleansing

For bowel cleansing, one can use a variety of dietary supplements, including one of the most useful plant fibers – milk thistle seeds.

The value of this dietary fiber is that it envelops the mucous membrane of the digestive system and absorbs slags and toxins accumulated in the walls of the esophagus, stomach and intestines.

Furthermore, thistle seed fiber cleanses the digestive tract from harmful substances; it has a laxative effect and stimulates the gastric emptying.

Therefore, insoluble thistle fiber, absorbed harmful substances, is not delayed in the intestine, but excreted from the body on a daily basis, in the process of defecation.

Intestinal cleansing is the initial stage of a comprehensive weight loss program that helps to start the process of improving the metabolism and healing of the whole body.

Eat and slim

Few people know that there is no need to give up favorite foods for weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight. Indeed, a key role in weight gain plays not the number of calories consumed, but the intensity of metabolism in the body.

In order to be convinced of truthfulness of this statement, it is sufficient to observe acquaintances, friends and loved ones who have never adhered to a strict diet, but herewith they look slim, fit, as well as full of energy and vitality.

The secret of a slim figure is quite simple and it is to maintain an optimal balance of nutrients in the body.

Eat and slim

When this balance is violated, the vast majority of people begin to gain weight. Only in a few cases, because of the metabolic disorder, a person grows thin and his attempts to gain weight are futile and ineffectual.

Restoration of metabolic disorder is a relatively long process that, however, does not require special efforts from the person.

  • To normalize the metabolism, it is necessary first to cleanse the body of free radicals, slags and toxins.
  • In the second place, it is necessary to saturate the body with the sufficient amount of vital substances, without which normal functioning of all systems and organs is impossible.
  • The third important condition to improve metabolism and rapidly to lose weight is daily physical activity.

Phased and integrated fighting obesity helps quickly to achieve the intended purpose and provides the result, which exceeds all expectations.

In normal metabolism, the choice of food products that can be included in the daily diet is practically unlimited.

So that metabolism is not violated due to the periodic overeating, each stage of coping with obesity should be an integral part of a healthy life.

Otherwise, the prevalence of fast food in the diet, lack of highly active biological substances in food products and low physical activity will not allow maintaining a beautiful, slender and graceful figure throughout life.

Appetite control

For additional stimulus to lose weight, intake of high-calorie food should be limited. However, because of increased appetite, it is unlikely to cope with the painful feeling of hunger independently.

Therefore, to increase appetite control, a daily diet should include high-energy, but low-calorie products that contain a large amount of plant fiber.

  • First, a low-fat plant fiber is enriched with vitamins, minerals, and amino acid complexes that enhance satiety and reduce hunger.
  • Secondly, plant fiber is a source of nitrogenous compounds involved in the regulation of metabolism and contribute to the destruction of fat cells.

how-to-control-your-hungerAs an additional source of low-calorie energy, flax flour, pumpkin seed flour or sea buckthorn seed meal can be used that in comparison with other dietary products contain the greatest amount of soluble and insoluble fiber.

Socially active men and women have no possibility to take plant fiber flour before each main meal.

Therefore, those who have breakfast, lunch or dinner outside the home can substitute dietary flour or seed meal for dietary fiber in tablets (capsules).

Insoluble dietary fibers (e.g., microcrystalline cellulose) have the unique property to swell in the stomach, to increase the amount of food eaten, and thereby to create the illusion of fullness.

In addition, dietary fibers have a pronounced detoxification effect. Therefore, besides the enhancement of satiety, they prevent the absorption of toxins and slags in the intestine, thereby helping to maintain a normal metabolism in the body.

Obesity risk factors

Modern society created a stereotype on that a sedentary life is the key problem of obesity. However, many experts draw our attention to the fact that the obesity rate has sharply increased over the last 30 years. Still, the levels of physical activity almost have not changed.

Thus, the statement that the waist size increases due to low physical activity is unreliable. The thing is that a well-balanced diet helps to keep a beautiful body shape even if a person does not do fitness or sports.

Well, malnutrition and insufficient physical activity are not the only reasons why people become obese; there is one more – stress.

Over the decades, American researchers had been watching over teenagers and concluded that children prone to stress had higher risk of obesity than children who were raised in harmony and a healthy emotional atmosphere.

The researchers name several stressful situations that may cause obesity in teenagers.

• The psychological risk factors of weight gain in girls may be a stress caused by unstable financial situation in the family or parents’ divorce.

• It is believed that stress caused by serious problem of mother’s health one of the psychogenic risk factors of obesity in boys.

Despite the fact that the causes of obesity in children and adults may differ, the method of anti-obesity treatment slightly depends on a person’s age.

1. The first step towards weight loss in children and adults – is a gradual increase of physical activity.
2. The second step to weight loss – is a gradual elimination of fast food and high-calorie fatty food from daily diet.

If the body weight is reduced by less than 5% of the initial weight in three months after the anti-obesity treatment, people can make the third step towards a significant weight loss.

To lose weight rapidly, people can use diet pills, medical devices or surgery. But in most cases, people use diet pills to cure obesity at home.

Obesity risk factorsTo buy the most effective diet pills – you need a prescription. It has to be noted that highly effective anti-obesity drugs are only prescribed to those people, who has the appropriate indications for use of these drugs.

In the USA, Phentermine pills were the best diet pills over the last 50 years. These diet pills have been successfully used for weight loss for many decades. Therefore, their effectiveness was confirmed during the numerous clinical studies and thousands real reviews on Phentermine ability to stimulate the quick weight loss.

You can find both positive and negative feedbacks about Phentermine on the Internet forums. The main drawback of Phentermine pills is that their efficiency starts to decrease over a couple of months after the beginning of the treatment. Therefore, those people who did not manage to lose weight by means of Phentermine within 2-3 months, have to search some new methods to fight obesity.

If Phentermine pills are ineffective, you can always replace them by other diet pills that are available over-the-counter or by prescription only at pharmacies. Please note that over-the-counter weight loss supplements are less effective than Phentermine.

However, unlike Phentermine that can cause drug dependence and severe cardiovascular side effects, over-the-counter weight loss products are completely safe for human health.

In 2015, Phentermine pills are used for the treatment of obesity only in a few countries of the world. The highest volume of retail sales of Phentermine was registered in the USA. In addition, Phentermine pills are the leaders on the Australian market of weight loss products.

Some international distributors of weight loss products offer to buy Phentermine online in any country of the globe. When buying Phentermine online, a purchaser must know that the wholesale and retail sales of Phentermine without prescription – are illegal.

Herewith, only those Companies can import Phentermine to the USA or Australia, which own the marketing authorization for Phentermine in these countries.
