In any given year, more than half of all Americans go on a diet to lose weight. The difficulty in losing weight and keeping it off leads many people to turn to a professional or commercial weight loss program for help. When considering joining a weight loss program, choose wisely.
Almost any of the commercial weight loss programs can work, but only if they motivate you sufficiently to change the way you eat or increase the amount of calories you burn through physical activity each day (or both).
What Should I Look for In a Weight Loss Program?
Make sure it is safe. Whether you create your own weight loss program or use a commercial one, make sure it is safe. A safe diet should include all of the recommended daily allowances (RDAs) for vitamins, minerals, and protein. The diet should be lower in calories (energy) only, not in essential vitamins or minerals. In general, women should choose a diet that has at least 1,200 calories a day and men should choose one that has at least 1,800 calories per day, however, speak with your doctor first.
Slow, steady weight loss. The program should be directed toward slow, steady weight loss unless your doctor feels your health condition would benefit from more rapid weight loss. Expect to lose only about a pound a week after the first week or two. With many calorie-restricted diets, there is an initial rapid weight loss during the first one to two weeks, but this loss is largely fluid. Thus, a reasonable goal of weight loss should be expected. The rate of weight loss should be 1 pound to 2 pounds each week.
If you plan to lose more than 15 pounds to 20 pounds, have any health problems, or take medication on a regular basis, your doctor should evaluate you before you start a weight loss program. A doctor can assess your general health and medical conditions that might be affected by dieting and weight loss.
The hCG diet is a weight loss program that combines two elements:
hCG (a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin)
Extremely low-calorie diet

Phentermine and its uses
Appetite suppressant medicines help people who are obese (those with a body mass index [BMI] of 30 or higher) to lose weight. It may also be prescribed for people who have BMIs of 27 or higher when they have other health conditions (such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol) that are made worse by being overweight.
Natural Hormones Are Powerful Tools
Hormone replacement therapy is the essence of anti-aging medicine. By restoring your body’s levels of hormones to those of a young adult, you are taking one giant step away from the aging process.
We increasingly know how vital a healthy, well functioning hormonal or endocrine system is, since, in essence, it impacts all other aspects of physiology. The core of the system is the HPA, or hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis, with its constellation of growth, energy and sexual functions.
In recent times, a growing emphasis has been placed on the earlier overlooked HGH, or human growth hormone, a substance released by the pituitary gland and once thought to be non-existent by adulthood. HGH administration is a powerful anti-aging technique carrying virtually no side effects.
Recent research has also focused on the importance of the functions of the thymus and pineal glands, once considered mysterious organs of unknown value. We now know that the harmonious regulation of the hormonal and immune systems depends to a great extent on thymus functions and that the hormone Melatonin plays a vital role in the aging process. The balancing, support and supplementation of these glands can provide spectacular results. in addition, this balance can boost energy, vitality, and libido, as well as lower the risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, and many other degenerative diseases.
