More than 75% of the population fights with issues that relate to weight loss. It may be a few pounds or a case of obesity but either way there is no magic bullet for curing obesity or weight gain. But using diet patches seems to be the latest hope for an easy solution to the problem. The diet patch is the latest and greatest craze to make it to the weight loss market in recent months. And it certainly is the most attractive diet plan to come along in ages.
There are a variety of different diet patches on the market. Some claim to work as fast as within 24 hours which is very impressive. Others claim results in a couple of days or a week. Almost all of them share basic ingredients and all deliver those ingredients the same way.
Using skin patches is not a new idea. Many drugs, contraceptives, and stop smoking remedies are delivered slowly through a time release skin patch. It has been proven that medication is absorbed extremely well through the skin. It has now become quite a common delivery system for prescription drugs and alternative treatments too.
So using a patch to deliver diet supplements should not be such a surprise. There are several different manufacturers using diet patches to delver a mix of minerals and herbs that are suppose to help you shed those extra pounds.
Garcinia, Guarana, and Fucus vesiculosus are common herbal ingredients that speed up the metabolism. Yerba mate is a substance like caffeine which works by speeding up the metabolism. Chromium picolinate is used to balance blood sugar levels.
Green tea concentrate has become a popular choice in dietary supplements so it is not surprising that it is now being used in diet patches. It is thought to metabolize fat more efficiently and to also speed up metabolism.
For best results apply the diet patch directly to dry skin in an area where there is a thin fat layer. For example the upper arm is often a good spot. The area not only needs to be dry but it also needs to be hairless, so if needed shave the area.
Once the patch is on, the person does not have to worry about getting it somewhat wet such as in the shower, however swimming is too wet. Replace as per the manufacturers directions that came with the patches or as directed by your doctor.
It is not the diet patch itself that can be the problem but rather the way a person perceives the purpose of the patch. If the person believes the patch is all that is needed to shed those pounds they will be met with disappointment. Whether diet patches or diet supplements are being used they must be combined with a good exercise program and an understanding of food calories including what a person can or cannot eat. All of these elements are an integral part of a good weight loss program.
If the calorie intake is higher than the calorie burn it will not matter what product is being used or what delivery mechanism is being used, the program will not be successful. Combine exercise, and counting calories with the use of diet patches and those pounds will begin to melt away.
Herbal ephedra and hoodia are two of the more popular and effective weight loss supplements. Of course you will find people that say these herbs are not good at helping people to lose weight. But there is one simple way to determine if they are any good.
Do people continue to search for these diet supplements and continue to take them? Millions of people took billions of doses of ephedra diet pills for over ten years. This type of market power showed that for many people herbal ephedra worked to help them lose fat. If the products had not worked so well then it would have not been popular for so many years.
Ephedra was never used for fat loss until it was discovered less than 20 years ago to “trick” the body into burning fat for fuel. This article is too short for the details of how this works but it has to do with chemical messengers within the ephedra plant.
These fat burning messengers come from the chemicals ephedrine and pseudoephedrine found in the ephedra plant. The strongest and most powerful of these chemicals is ephedrine. When used in high enough concentration over a long enough period of time the body will burn off more fat for fuel than it normally does. When combined with caffeine the fat burning effect is even greater.
Hoodia works by telling the brain you are full regardless of whether you have eaten or not. There are no known harmful side effects associated with taking hoodia gordonii for weight loss.
Using these two herbs together makes a good fat loss plan because they work by different methods. Reduce calorie intake with hoodia and increase calorie expenditure with ephedra.
A comparison really cannot be made between patented weight loss drugs manufactured by the pharmaceutical industry and an all-natural herb that cost less than half the price of a prescription. Plus the fact that in numerous, well qualified, scientific studies it was proven that ephedra caused just as much weight loss, if not more, than prescription weight loss pills.
People will always look for a fast fix for weight loss or simply want to utilize diet pills to help speed the process up. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with this approach as long as you do not abuse the supplements or rely on them completely for your Weight Loss.Good nutritional habits and some type of exercise are the best and most reliable ways to lose weight.
