BELVIQ for weight loss

Those who are overweight or obese can look to a new weight loss drug to help them lose weight. The drug, which is to be used in addition to a reduced-calorie diet and an exercise regimen, was just approved by the FDA, although its safety and other risks have not been investigated.

From an Arena Pharmaceuticals press release:

“The FDA approval of BELVIQ is an important development for patients who struggle with obesity or are overweight with comorbidities and need help with chronic weight management beyond diet and exercise,” said Jack Lief, Arena's President and Chief Executive Officer.


As with any other weight loss drug, BELVIQ is meant to be part of a weight loss plan, which also includes a healthy diet and exercise, and is not a panacea. In clinical trials, some patients experienced such side effects as headache, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, dry mouth, and constipation. Some diabetic patients in the trial experienced hypoglycemia, headache, back pain, cough and fatigue.

Doctors will soon be able to prescribe the drug, while studies on the drug’s safety, efficacy and long-term effects are in the works.

Slim down tips and tricks

Have you exhausted just about every diet plan or silly weight loss tip? Are you ready to learn about how to lose weight in a super-easy manner? Well, here are a few tips and mind tricks you can use that actually work. Read on and try them out.

1. Try Yoga

Women who do yoga typically weigh less than those who do not, according to the Journal of the American Dietetic Association. They’re also more likely to be mindful when they eat, which helps prevent overeating.

2. Eat Home-Cooked Meals

Those who eat at home at least 5 times a week instead of dining out are more likely to be successful at losing weight, says Consumer Reports.

3. Take Breaks when eating

Most people take a break and put down their eating utensils at a certain point while they eat, called an eating pause. When this happens, don’t take another bite for a while until you actually feel hungry. This may help you realize you’re already satisfied but not quite stuffed.

4. Time It

Set a timer for 20 minutes while you eat to promote slow eating and savor each bite. Pay close to attention to every sensation while you eat, which results in your body triggering satisfaction hormones. When you eat quickly, your body doesn’t trigger the hormones, which can ultimately lead to overeating.

5. Keep your eye on the prize

Motivating yourself to lose weight every chance you get also helps. So hang up that sexy pair of jeans or little black dress that’s a little too snug for you right now so you can see it every day — and be motivated to keep at your weight loss goal.

3 Diet Traps That Sabotage Weight Loss

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Jun 15, 2012

Weight Loss Diet Tips

What you don't understand about dieting can cost you at the scale, resulting in extra pounds. If you continually find yourself still not losing the weight you think you should, there may be some hidden diet problems. Here we shed some light on common diet misunderstandings.

1.) Hidden sugars
Sugar lurks in some of the most unsuspecting foods and the results are disastrous to your healthy diet. Common culprits include cereals, pasta sauces, soups, salad dressings and sauces in general. Not only does a diet high in sugar lead to weight gain, but it can also cause you to burn your energy stores too rapidly.

Tip:
Check the ingredients listed on the nutrition label. If the first few ingredients list sugar or some variation of sugar such as high-fructose corn syrup, evaporated cane juice, fruit juice concentrate, glucose, dextrose, sucrose, honey, malt syrup, molasses or agave, then you know it has a high sugar content.

2.) Lack of fiber

Fiber-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts and whole grains are an important part of a healthy diet. They keep you fuller longer and can help prevent snacking and overeating.

Tip: Make sure your daily diet includes about 30 grams of fiber for healthy weight loss.

3.) "Healthy" junk food

Even though that snack bar is organic, all natural or sweetened with evaporated cane juice instead of refined sugar, it still can cause weight gain because of its sugar or calorie content. Not only that, but you may even give yourself permission to binge on these "healthy" snacks, so consume with caution.

Tip: Limit your snacking on healthy snack foods and fill up on fresh, natural foods for a quick energy boost without the additives or extra calories.
