What you can eat to lose weight

Experienced fighters with extra pounds, of course, know that the problem of overweight is complex, and pills for weight loss alone cannot solve it. The basis of weight loss is a proper diet, balanced physical activity, correction of endocrine disorders (if any). But medicines and dietary supplements with proper use can become helpers on the way to health and a slim figure.

Pharmacies offer a wide range of such products. But which drugs for weight loss are better in a particular case? To answer this question, you need to know how they work. From this point of view, all means for weight loss can be divided into several groups.

Types of drugs for weight loss

Fat burners and metabolic accelerators

This group includes agents that are diverse in chemical structure and mechanism of action. Sparing fat-burning preparations for weight loss contain vitamins, minerals, amino acids and plant extracts that activate the natural process of splitting fats. Some of these substances (caffeine) can enhance metabolic processes.

There are also "heavy artillery" among fat burners. These are drugs that stimulate the production of hormones by the adrenal cortex and increase the sensitivity of receptors to them. Adrenaline and norepinephrine contribute to the process of weight loss: under their influence, metabolism accelerates and appetite decreases. But fat burners that enhance hormone production have a lot of side effects: tachycardia, high blood pressure, nervous system disorder. They are contraindicated for many overweight people.

Appetite suppressants

There are two ways to reduce appetite. The first is the effect on the centers of hunger and satiety in the brain. This is how synthetic drugs — anorexigens - work. Figuratively speaking, they deceive the brain, convincing it that the body is full. Such remedies are often unsafe, they have many contraindications and side effects, and are usually dispensed by prescription.

The second method of suppressing appetite is more gentle. This is the use of dietary fibers that swell in the stomach and create a feeling of satiety for a long time. Thanks to such additives, a person eats smaller portions. Insoluble dietary fiber is not absorbed in the intestine and does not add extra calories to the diet. An additional advantage is that they help to improve the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract.

Lipase inhibitors

Lipase is an enzyme that breaks down fats. There are drugs that inhibit its activity. Due to this, the process of splitting and absorption of fats is disrupted, and they are excreted through the intestines. It would seem that there is nothing else to wish for: with such pills, you can not be afraid to gain weight from fatty foods that simply will not be absorbed. But even here there are pitfalls. Against the background of taking lipase inhibitors, side effects such as flatulence, diarrhea and other symptoms of impaired absorption are not uncommon. In addition, these drugs do not affect the absorption of carbohydrates in any way, and they are the main culprits of excess weight.

Cleansing preparations

Cleansing the body of toxins is an important part of the process of healthy weight loss. For this purpose, enterosorbents can be taken. These are drugs capable of absorbing harmful substances (toxins, allergens, heavy metal salts, metabolic products) and removing them from the body. Sorbents do not have a direct effect on weight loss, but cleansing itself helps to get rid of excess weight, eliminates the problem of constipation. However, it is not necessary to abuse these drugs, because together with harmful substances they also remove useful ones. It is better to give preference to sorbents of natural origin: pectin, fiber, bran not only cleanse the body, but also improve digestion, and also, which is very important for losing weight, help reduce hunger, creating a feeling of satiety for a long time.
