It has been found that people with more body weight and fat tend to die earlier that those who are slim and healthy. Most obese people live a mediocre life. They cannot remain active throughout the day, develop fatness related diseases, become burdens to themselves as well as others, and are less successful in life. The social lives of the obese are also inconsequential. All this makes it imperative that we remain slim and retain our health in order to life our lives to its fullness.
But how can we keep body weight and fat levels down? Our present lifestyles and social systems do not provide us with the necessary time and inclination to work towards a healthy body. Visiting a gym regularly is out of question for most of our busy executives. Cutting down on fat-inducing foods is also difficult because most of our fast foods (which are easy to procure and eat) are high on fat content. Meat and fish products we consume regularly are also culprits here. The only viable answer to our obesity problems is to take such foods that retard fat formation and accumulation. Many of us are compulsive eaters. Appetite reducing pills can help such people.
However, unnatural medicines and techniques for fat reduction can give more harm that gain. The pills used for appetite suppression and braking down fats should be totally natural, otherwise long term health problems can crop up. The emphasis should be permanent weight loss and not a short term result. Many of us regain the lost fat once the weight loss regimen ends. This should not happen. It would be better if weight reducing foods are taken regularly as supplements in order to be healthy throughout life.
Many fat reducing and appetite controlling foods occur naturally around the globe. One such food is white kidney beans. We all know that carbohydrates and fats are the biggest culprits in weight and fat accumulation. White kidney beans resist carbohydrates from breaking down into sugars. This would help in keeping blood sugar at acceptable levels too. So you get a two-fold gain here. The first, keeping fat levels down and secondly, retarding accumulation of blood sugar. While kidney beans thus ranks as the foremost natural carbohydrate blocker known to man.
Chitosan, the extract taken from crustacean shells, is also a good quality fat loss agent. The natural product is most suited for heavy and compulsive eaters. Regular intake of chitosan pills help shed excess fat through stool, thereby keeping the body slim and trim. However, take care that you take nutrient rich food along with it in order to make sure that the body is not depleted of useful minerals and vitamins. It is rich in soluble fiber too.
Hoodia gordonii, a bitter plant found in the arid plains of southern Africa, is also high in anti-fattening properties. It is a natural appetite fighter, but gives out enough energy for limited periods. Pills made from the plant extract can fight compulsive eating, cravings and unreasonable appetites in a natural way. It contains no stimulants and is free from side effects too.
