Keeping a healthy weight is crucial. If you are underweight, overweight, or obese, you may have a higher risk of certain health problems.
About two thirds of adults in the North America are overweight or obese. Achieving a healthy weight can help you control your cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar. It might also help you prevent weight-related diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and some cancers.
Eating too much or not being physically active enough will make you overweight. To maintain your weight, the calories you eat must equal the energy you burn. To lose weight, you must use more calories than you eat. A weight-control strategy might include
- Choosing low-fat, low-calorie foods
- Eating smaller portions
- Drinking water instead of sugary drinks
- Being physically active
What are the ingredients in weight-loss dietary supplements?
Weight-loss supplements contain many ingredients—like herbs, fiber, and minerals—in different amounts and in many combinations. Sold in forms such as capsules, tablets, liquids, and powders, some products have dozens of ingredients.
Common ingredients in weight-loss supplements are described below:
Chromium is a mineral that you need to regulate your blood sugar levels. It’s claimed to increase muscle mass and fat loss and decrease appetite and food intake.
Coleus forskohlii is a plant that grows in India, Thailand, and other subtropical areas. Forskolin, made from the plant’s roots, is claimed to help you lose weight by decreasing your appetite and increasing the breakdown of fat in your body.
Garcinia cambogia is a tree that grows throughout Asia, Africa, and the Polynesian islands. Hydroxycitric acid in the fruit is claimed to decrease the number of new fat cells your body makes, suppress your appetite and reduce the amount of food you eat, and limit the amount of weight you gain.
Ephedra (also called ma huang) is a plant that’s native to China. It contains substances that stimulate your nervous system, increase the amount of energy you burn, increase weight loss, and may sup-press your appetite.
Green tea (also called Camellia sinensis) is a common beverage all over the world. Green tea and green tea extract in some weight-loss supplements are claimed to reduce body weight by increasing the calories your body burns, breaking down fat cells, and decreasing fat absorption and the amount of new fat your body makes.
L-Carnitine is an amino acid that is primarily known for its ability to turn fat into energy.
Calcium Pyruvate occurs naturally in the body as an end product of the metabolism of starch or sugar. It is included in Lean Energizer for its proven ability to increase fat loss by up to 48% while minimizing the associated loss of body protein experienced while following a low-fat diet.
Guarana Extract, a caffeine stimulant, for an energy boost, and because it aids in weight loss by suppressing appetite and increasing the rate of fat burning.
