Lose Weight Naturally And Successfully

By: gooddoctor
This article on weight loss has been written because I know, from personal experience, how important it is to your image and self esteem to have just the right body shape.

There are a lot of ways to lose weight. There are people who have decided to purchase exercise machines and after a few minutes of use each day, can loosen the fat instantly. Others try something new such as the Atkins or South Beach diet that have also proven to be effective.

Not all of these will work the same for a person. Some suggest the use of herbs and supplements. These are of western and eastern origin that have been proven to be safe as long as the proper measures are taken.

One of these aids is called hydroxycitric acid, which is an extract from a Garcinia cambogia tree found in India. Many Indians use this in making curry dishes, which is also used in restaurants in the United States.

The chemical does three things. It works by blocking the enzymes in the body from converting carbohydrates to fat. Second, it suppresses the appetite by making the brain think one is already full and lastly, it helps burn fat faster.

This means the person can go into an establishment that serves Indian cuisine or after buying this ingredient, can make a similar dish at home.

People who consume this often should drink a lot of water and reduce the consumption of alcohol because this will hinder the weight loss process. Those who have diabetes, high blood pressure, are pregnant or are still lactating should also stop first since this could have affects on the baby.

Another ingredient used by Indians is called Gugulipid. This herb comes from the mukul myrrh tree that has been used for centuries. This was first used to treat people with lipid disorders and obesity but tests have shown this can also lower the bad cholesterol and increase the good kind that is produced in the body.

This promotes weight loss by stimulating the thyroid gland, which in turn will speed up the metabolic rate in the body thus burning away fat. People who want to try this should maintain a low fat diet and not mix this with anything else since this could cause rashes or diarrhea.

Now before you read any further let me just say that I do hope you are finding this both helpful and interesting. I have written this because I really do believe that we need to know more about this, so, having said that, lets continue.

Gymnema is also a natural herb that can be found in India and parts of Africa. The leaves are known to interfere with the persons ability to taste sweetness thus reducing sugar consumption.

Those who have a hard time saying no to chocolates or anything sweet should take this before having a large meal. People who have diabetes should also eat this in moderation.

Gamma linolenic acid, which is a type of Omega 6, found in evening primrose oil and borage seed oil can be mixed in a meal before eating. This also increases the persons metabolism thus burning excess fat after brown fat found in the body has been activated.

Pharmaceutical companies sell these in bottle form and must be refrigerated and consumed within a month to a month and a half since this decomposes quickly.

Fibers normally found in herbal teas can also help people loose weight naturally. These products have ingredients such as psyllium, guar gum, pectin, glucomannan or chitin which stimulates bowel movement thus getting rid of excess fat. Users should drink lots of water to compensate for the fluids lost.

The use of aids in losing weight are many and have proven to be safe and effective. The person should consult a doctor first before taking anything.

Let me finish by saying that there is a mass of information out there on the topic of weight loss, and if you are wondering just where to start may I suggest a visit to your local bookstore, your local library, and do a search on the internet.
