Too much fiber in the diet, though, can lead to bloating and gas. ...Read more

What is the best weight loss product, and how hard is it on your internal organs?

What is the best weight loss product, and how hard is it on your internal organs?

Diet and exercise: The best weight loss product is lifestyle change and exercise. There aren't any products that you can take that will lead to long-term success if you do not change your lifestyle and eat accordingly.

Please describe a good weight loss product that will could you help me lose weight and keep it off?

The one you DON'T: Take, because they're all a waste of money and don't do anything for you. The only weight you'll lose is in your wallet. Besides, who knows what's in them and what harm it could do to you? The only way to lose and keep it off is to learn to eat less and exercise more, it's 3500 calories to the pound. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet. ...Read more

I'm wanting to take something to boost my weight loss. I am looking into advocare. Is this a safe product to take?

Why: Would you want to put unknown chemicals into your body when you don't know what they are or what harm they could cause? Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet.

If I walk 30 minutes daily at 5 km/h, will it be useful for weight loss? And if no, what is the recommended practice to get result?

Distance not time: Walking is an excellent exercise. The speed is not as important as the distance. At 5 km/h for 30 min you will walk about 2.5 km (1.5 mile). Depending on your size, you will burn about 120-180 calories. To lose 1 lb you need to burn 3500 calories. I generally recommend walking 15 miles (24 km) per week in order to lose weight. ...Read more

I bought a product yacon syrup and weight loss pills. It is a dr. Oz commercialized product. Is it safe to use?

Safe for Dr. Oz: Safe (and very good!) for dr. Oz, but not for you. Every weight loss program must be individualized; there is no single remedy that is good for everybody. Weight management is primarily in your head, not in your stomach; people often use food to gain gratification, not to satisfy hunger; and this is wrong. ...Read more
