Bad Side Effects of Diet Pills
Being a beauty queen is not necessarily to look very thin. As a beauty queen we need to look healthy and fit. However, if you want to be an actress or a singer, you have to be way thinner. This is because on camera you will be 30% fatter. After i came back from Miss World pageant i gained weight as they fed us 3 to 4 meals per day when I was there. I really felt uneasy after gaining weight, especially while attending events, I will be afraid people will give comment like : How come Miss Malaysia is so fleshy? or even worse How come Miss Malaysia is so fat?
Therefore, I have to loose weight. I have been trying a few diet. I think that watching your meals and exercising regularly ease in weight loss. Also, I think that extreme diet is not healthy for health. I tried atkins diet before where i do not eat carbohydrate for months, well i did lost weight but just short term and also i think that atkins diet made me craved for carbs more. I also tried extreme diet like just drinking water for the whole day. This is even worse, as it lowered my metabolism rate and when i start eating i really ate non-stop.
Another way of dieting is through pills, which is not advisable as it create alot of side effect. Also, I think that it is just for short term. Here are some of the pills and also the side effect caused.There is one type of pill called reductil. After consuming it, you will not feel hungry and will not have appetite for one whole day. However, you will feel very weak and lack of energy. It is around RM4.00 for each pills.
Xenical where it is a oil control pills. Just need to take 1 pill before consuming any oily food and it will block the fats and the oil will be eliminated as you go to toilet. Well, it just eliminates 30% of the fats consume, yet the more food we consume the more calories our body will absorb.It is around RM2.00 for one pill.
Another pill is called ducolax, which is a laxative pills. It makes you to go toilet. However, it will create like stomach ache pain. So, it is not advisable to over- dose. It is around rm7.50 for 20 pills.
Another is a carbo and fat blocker. called tipo-X. It was said to block 60% of fats and carbs. Just need to swallow 2 pills 20-30 mins before meal. It costs around RM35 for the whole box.
A great diet food i wanted to share here, is the Flourless Bread. It uses the new technology of sprouted wheat to make this bread. Initially it is used in hospital for patients and nowadays it is famous for diet. It is just 70 calories per slice.It is carbs free and it taste like normal bread. It cost about RM6 and available in some hyper store. It comes in 2 flavours, I prefer the one with green packing ones.
Well, I just want to say that taking all these pills is not advisable for diet.
I think the most effective diet is calorie diet. You just need to limit yourself to certain calories in order to loose weight. And you can choose to eat anything you want. Basically 3500 calories is equivalent to 1 pound. And everyday, an average women consume 2000 calories and for men 2500 calories. So if you eat lesser than that amount you will loose weight. Hence with the deficiency of calories, you will loose weight .If you want to loose weight faster limit yourself to 800 calories per day for 3 days then you can loose about 2 to 3kg. On the other hand, if you want to loose around 1kg in 3 days just limit your calorie intake to 1200 cal. Also, it is always better to eat before 7pm and drink loads of water. Below are some of the plans, you can switch it to other food you want by measuring the calorie intake.
800 Calories Diet Meal Plan
Breakfast: 2 slice of toast with Ham and egg
Morning Snack: Apple or any fruits
Lunch: One bowl of mee sup + Fruits
Lunch Snack: 3 pieces of biscuit or 1 slice of toast
Dinner: Soup, chicken, eggs and vegetables
1200 calories meal plan
Breakfast: Cereals+ Milk
Lunch: Rice+ Vege+ Meat
Snack: Some Nuts
Dinner: Spagetti with red sauce
Also, if you exceed the calories you intended, you can loose it all by doing a little exercise. For examples:
(a) Standing Up for an hour- 100 cals burned
(b) Walking for an hour -200 cals burned
(c) Sitting for an hour -60 cals burned
(d) Sleeping for an hour -50 cals burned
So this is some of the diet tips, hope it helps=D!!!
