According to a National Statistic report for 2015 in England, 58 % of women and 68% of men are overweight or obese. The obesity prevalence rose from 15% in 1993 to 27% in 2015.  Poor diet and nutrition are a major contributor to these results. In the environment we live in, it’s easy to overeat and be less active. As a result, more and more people see the solution to the overweight in the weight loss pills.

Losing weight is a continuous body process. It is important to make serious habits changes that will push the long-term results. Yet, many people don’t understand this; they want to drop off the excessive weight in the shortest possible term. Thus, instead of maintaining a healthy diet and exercising, they turn to diet pills. People who don’t have enough drive to commit to an active life or who can’t stay away from junk food,  percept the diet pills like a magical solution.The truth is that even if they help you lose weight, they are still bad for you.             weight loss pills

How do the weight loss pills work?

Ally Diet Pill.

 Ally pill is a nonprescription drug in the UK. It is the lower-dose version of the medication Orlistat or Xenical.  Ally pill prevents the fat absorption.  People opting for Ally are advised to avoid fatty foods and stick to a reduced-calorie diet.  Dr.Donald D. Hensrud, M.D. a Mayo Clinic specialist concludes that Alli may help you lose weight, but the weight loss will likely be modest — perhaps just a few pounds more than you would lose with diet and exercise alone.

Research on Ally Diet Pill

The most well-known study is  Swedish XENDOS, which included 3,305 overweight individuals and lasted for 4 years. Group A took 120 mg of Orlistat, three times daily, while the group  B took a placebo – a fake treatment used in studies to find out whether the pharmacological effect of a drug includes the effects produced by the drug might be related to psychological processes that are so-called the placebo effect.

 All participants have been placed on a strict diet – 800 fewer calories per day, and limit dietary fat to 30% of calories. They were also encouraged to go for walks every day. During the first year, the average weight loss in the Orlistat-treated group was 23.3 pounds (10.6 kg). The placebo group lost only 13.6 pounds (6.2 kg).According to this study, Orlistat combined with diet and exercise may make you lose almost twice as much weight as diet and exercise alone.

Ally pill blocks the fat absorption. As this is not a natural body process, it leads to serious side effects.  Ally’s side effects include digestive problems and nutrient deficiencies, and may also interfere with some medications.


Appestat contains a fibre complex extracted from seaweed.The manufacturers claim that Appestat helps to control the appetite. The pill creates the feeling of fullness while dieting. The claim also includes a statement that people taking Appestat reported to four times more satisfied with the food they had eaten, compared to those who had not used the tablet. .The effects of Appestat are said to be like those of a gastric balloon.  Appestat mechanism:  The manufacturers’ advice to take Appestat with a lot of water. The fibrous seaweed extract purportedly swells to several times its normal size in the stomach.

As a matter of fact, the human body cannot digest or absorb fiber. As a consequence,  the pill breaks down in the stomach and then flushes out of the body as waste. Due to the pill, not being able to be absorbed into the bloodstream Appestat is not classed as a pharmaceutical drug.

For an individual who doesn’t have enough drive to commit to a physically active life or who can’t stay away from junk food, diet pills may look like a magical solution. However, even if they do help you lose weight, they are still bad for you.                                                                

Side Effects 

The side effects vary depending on the mechanism and the compounds of the diet pills. Some weight loss pills diminish the amount of fat that you absorb from the food, while others will suppress your appetite. Likewise, a very popular category of diet pills are the fat-burners. They help the body to burn more calorie. The problem with all these diet pills is that they can cause serious side effects, including high blood pressure, sleeplessness, kidney problems, increased heart rate, agitation, liver damage, and diarrhea.

Besides, certain diet pills can contain antidepressants and amphetamines. Since there’s a good chance that you may get addicted to them, it’s worth mentioning that you will be at higher risk of experiencing any of before mentioned side effects.Yet, that’s not even the worst thing about diet pills. The sad truth is that most of them are ineffective since they represent a combination of caffeine and other diuretics. The only possible result is water loss. Although you will see a lower number on the scale because of the water loss, you should know that this is far from the fat loss. The water weight is not fat weight. It can return easily.

By taking diet pills, you will avoid changing your lifestyle.

A lot of people never manage to reach their weight loss goals. The reason is that they fail to make profound and lasting eating and exercise habit changes. People see the diet pills as the easy solution to cut down a few pounds and get rid of their excess weight forever. In my opinion,  the adverts also play a significant role to consumers’ bad choices.
