Diet Pills

Diet Pills In today’s materialistic driven society, people are judged in every possible aspect. From their appearance, background, social status, way or thinking to their friends, families. The need to be accepted and admired by others captivates the minds of many men and women of today. This conquest for social acceptance becomes so real that the idea then becomes an obsession. The way we look plays a big role in our lives.

It determines the way others see us and from that, it will then determine how we feel about ourselves. One major proponent of appearance is our weight. Do you ever notice that the most admired and said to be most popular girls in school are the sexiest, slimmest and most flaunting girls? They are the ones that upon passing by make the guys stop and take a second look. Not only that but this applies to men as well. The most heart-throbbed, crushed on guys are those with firm-cut bods, most of the time carrying footballs or basketballs.

From these observations, it becomes a known fact, not only for the young generation, that men and women are obsessed with their weights. And why not?? Whenever you turn on the television or open a magazine all you see are beautiful people flaunting their beautiful bodies. This constant images of seeing sexy idealistic people implants a message in our minds that this is the way all men/women should look in order to be beautiful. And because of this, we subject ourselves to abusing our health and bodies just so we can be like those perfect images. As early as I can recall, there have been ways and tactics created by man to loose weight as fast as they can. The faster and easier, the better.

In the past three years, there has been an abundant intrusion of “diet pills” that has hit the Philippines. The first one that hit was an appetite suppressant drug called Ionamin. It apparently stimulates the brain’s appetite-control center into thinking that your stomach is always full. It is an effective weight loss drug that enables one to lose the weight desired in a short amount of time. Consequently, the drug was found to have unpleasant adverse side effects. These are: mood changes, blurred vision, unpleasant taste or dry mouth, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, urinary urgency, false sense of well-being.

It was a non-prescription drug easily that could easily be bought by anyone until studies showed much side effects very harmful to one’s health. Next and still quite popular with the public are Bankok pills. These pills are so in demand in the Philippines that people are willing to pay thousands of pesos for just a 2week supply of those pills and further, they are bought through connections because they are not just sold anywhere in any drugstore. This drug taken morning and night somehow also works as a appetite suppressant but the way it gets rid of your unwanted excess weight is by taking it out through your bodily fluids. In other words, when inducing the drug you are subjected to constant urination. It takes out so much that it also takes out the liquids that your body needs to maintain itself. Your urine will turn into a clear almost like water appearance from the usual yellow color.

This will then cause and leave you feeling dehydrated. In my opinion, using bankok pills for weight reduction may work fast but the results are ill looking. The weight that you loose will leave you looking dry and malnutritioned. Basically you will look unhealthy and ugly. Recently, a new drug was introduced in the weight loss market, Xenical, the generic name for Orlistat. This is an anti-obesity agent manufactured by F.

Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd. It is a lipase inhibitor for obesity management that acts by inhibiting the absorption of dietary fats. This drug on the other hand, disposes unwanted body fats by secreting it through your feces coming out in the form of oil. Sometimes your “poop” will even just seep through as all oil. Also, throughout the days of treatment, you will experience oil-spotting discharges. This drug is a prescription drug used to cure obesity for medical purposes so there are still studies to make as to how the drug will affect people who just take the drug for quick diet purposes. But like all drugs there is a good possibility that it could be harmful to us when taken ignorantly.

Subjecting yourself to habit forming diet pills that are bad for your health so that you can reach the weight and look you want is not the proper way. Also, once you stop using the pill you will quickly gain twice as much as you lost in the first place, faster than you can make it back to the store to buy some more pills. The one who looks good or feels good about themselves doesnt necessarily have to be the thinnest one in the group. In fact nowadays people with curves are the ones who are thought of as sexy. I mean, if you are to put your arms around someone, would you want to hold a bag of bones or hold someone who is soft and who actually has something to be held? And besides, what makes a person beautiful is the person as a whole.

Their mind, personality, attitude..being in his or herself! Of course maintaining the proper weight is always good but doing it the right way like exercising and eating right is a better healthier way to do it. In that case your body will also slowly but effectively condition itself to eating right and working out regularly so that your body will remain healthy and maintain itself at the proper weight you desire. So if I were you, dont be an empty-headed person who would harm themselves just so that they can look good for other people who dont even admire them for their inner being but for how they look in a bathing suit.
