This could be the beginning of a series of questions you rollover during your decision-making process. Yet, sometimes before you get this point, you may even ask yourself, do I really want to go through this process? This is the beginning of self-doubt which could lead to procrastination about the whole concept. If you conquer this negative thought and move past it, understand that you are embarking on a journey of information. Here are some product categories that are out on the market which we will discuss.
o Drug-based over-the-counter products for weight-loss
o Food-based programs for weight-loss
o Natural and Herbal-based food supplements for weight-loss
Drug-based over-the-counter products:
These are the products you typically see in everyday Television commercials. They are complete w/visual images of body prototypes and may have testimonials of people who have used the products. Since they have the largest marketing revenue, you tend to see them as believable as they appear on your television screen and they appeal to you in some type of way. The question to ask is: "Are these products safe for my body?
These products are just as popular as the drug-based programs and maybe even more because in addition to Television advertisements, they also receive endorsements by well-known entertainers and athletes. Although they may provide some nutritional value, which is essential to your body, here is yet another question: "Do they taste good enough to eat daily until my weight-loss goal is achieved?"
Natural and Herbal-based Food Supplements:
These products are gaining popularity yet they require more research to find. The true bonus for these products due to natural content is that they generally provide additional health benefits as a direct result of its use. The key question for these products is: "Are they REALLY 100% Natural or Herbal-based?"
When it comes to using a particular weight-loss product or program; without doubt using natural-based products prove to be the healthiest choice. The main reason is that you receive the highest in nutritional content. This alone provides untold benefits. Consider including a weight-loss journal to your program. This is where you document all the foods & beverages consumed for each meal plan (breakfast, lunch, & dinner). The ultimate key bonus is to write down your emotion as you begin to consume your foods and beverages for each meal plan. After a 3-week period, start analyzing your results. At that point, you have formed a habit. Identify your own habits and begin the improvement process for eating healthier and establishing control of your eating habits. Set limits on when you will eat as well as how much. Begin to gauge how long you can last without eating before you have the emotion of being hungry. These traits are what can turn yo-yo dieting into permanent weight-loss. The hardest component of any weight-loss program is to maintain the new weight size.
Ultimately, when you finally reach a decision, give the product at least a 30-Day trial. Put forth an honest effort in mind and body in hopes that you are on your way to achieving your goal. If you are feeling better and achieving results, you have found your Weight-Loss PRODUCT!!! If not, then switch to another product type preferably in a different category. When you find the right one, you will know it not only from the results but from the determination inside you to make the change. The choice is yours. Make it fun and make it happen!
