Resolution Series: Weight Management with Supplements

Posted on by Paula Gallagher

weigh-inThe number one resolution for Americans is weight loss. Despite hundreds of fad diets and weight loss programs that promise quick and long-lasting results, more than half of American adults are still overweight or obese. According to the World Health Organization, more than 1 billion adults are overweight, with a body mass index (BMI) above 25. With nearly 500 million individuals ranking as truly obese (BMI above 30), obesity continues to represent a major risk factor for the development of serious medical conditions such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, Alzheimer’s disease and cancer. Truly, there are no quick fixes for weight loss and weight management. Achieving a healthy weight comes down to these things: • Positive mental outlook • Healthy lifestyle and exercise program • Balanced diet • The right natural support for your body This week's blog series on weight management is focusing on diet and water, and starting with supplements. Next week we will look at the importance of exercise. Elements of nutrition can help to achieve your weight goals by supporting an active metabolism, promoting balanced blood sugar levels, improving energy levels, as well as assisting in the management of the effects stress has on your body. Supplements should not be used as a sole means to weight loss. They are meant to "supplement" or boost your weight loss strategies. Before embarking on any weight loss supplement, talk to your healthcare practitioner or nutritionist to see if they are right for you. The following supplements can be useful aids in your weight loss goals. Pathway 7 Keto Fit: 7-Keto® is a metabolite of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) that has been clinically researched in humans and shown to be three times more effective in reducing weight than diet and exercise alone.

Pathway Super Citrimax: An ideal blend of the rind of garcina cambogia fruit (Citrimax™) and chromium (ChromeMate®) promotes weight loss by enhancing feelings of fullness and improving the action of insulin in cells.
