We all know that being obese is just the same as being unhealthy.
Having a BMI of greater than 25 (the normal is from 19-25) would mean having much more weight than the ideal body height and for most people the excess weight would usually be due to the fats that have been stored in the body for a long time now.
Why do people get obese?
For most of the time, the main reason why some people are obese is through their genetic make-up. Your genes are responsible for the different composition of cells in your body and this includes fat cells.
Some people have genes that could not easily metabolize excess sugar and instead convert them into fat storage cells thus a person could appear obese.
Genetics is also the reason why there are some people that even if they would keep eating a lot, they would not get any bigger at all.
Another reason for obesity is overeating. Our body needs only a certain amount of calories needed to be taken in each day.
When one would eat a lot, then it would come to a point that the body would no longer need the excess energy source thus would result to storing them into fat cells instead.
So if you continuously overeat then it would come to a point that he or she may become obese.
What are diet pills and why do some people take them?
However losing weight is not as easy as gaining. It would take a lot of months of diet and exercise before one could attain the body and weight that he or she wants.
For some, they would result in taking in medications that would increase the rate of removal of the excess fats in the body.
When coupled with diet and exercise, these medications could decrease the time needed to lose weight from months to probably a couple of weeks. This type of diet medication is called the diet pill.
How do diet pills work?
The main mechanism of most diet pills is to prevent further fat storage and later obesity.
Most diet pills work by preventing fat absorption in the body thus it is usually taken during meals so that it could prevent food that is rich in ‘bad fats’ from being absorbed by the body.
On the other hand, some diet pills would work by enhancing the satiety levels in your body.
So if a person takes a pill in the morning, the diet pill would be able make the person feel full so that he or she would no longer have the need to eat more during the day.
Are diet pills safe?
Diet pills are safe to take in especially when the proper dosage is being observed. If you want to be sure of the safety of your diet pill, you can consult a physician for better supervision.
