How To Find The Best Weight Loss Products For Your Diet

Dec 26, 2007
There are so many weight loss products on the market that it can be difficult to know what to choose.

Is Brand X really better than Brand Y?

How come you should cut out carbs with one diet yet eat as many of them as you want with another?

If that person really did lose 28 pounds in as many days, can someone like you do the same?

The claims sound good - but then no-one is going to tell you that their product sucks, are they?

So the first thing you need to do when looking for a weight loss product is to develop a healthy skepticism.

If there's a claim, check it out. That's easy to do nowadays with the internet but we often take the short cut of thinking that if a claim is printed, it must be the truth. It may well be true but it may not always be 100% honest. Someone, somewhere almost certainly lost weight using the product you're thinking about. But could you do the same? Or would they need to wire your jaws together before you stood a chance of even coming close?

If possible, check with your doctor before taking a new weight loss product. This is especially true if a product wants you to severely restrict the number of calories you're digesting. We need a minimum amount of calories to survive and if you go below the recommended level for too long, it's simply not healthy.

If friends or work colleagues have been successful with their diets, ask them what they did. They'll almost certainly be happy to share the details with you and you'll know that the claims haven't been put through some remote marketing machine and puffed up beyond all recognition.

Above all, keep your wits about you. If the claims of a weight loss product you're investigating seem too good to be true, they probably are.

It won't harm to put off the purchase decision until tomorrow (so long as you don't always put it off until "tomorrow").

If there's a special offer to buy now, this minute, otherwise the offer will disappear forever... Realize that this is almost certainly a marketing trick. If the product is good for you and will help you lose weight, then sure the retailer wants you to buy it. But unless you can see the product disappearing off the supermarket shelf by the trolley load, it will still be there tomorrow. In fact, even if it's selling fast it is highly likely more stocks will be bought in. Nowadays almost nothing is truly limited in supply.

One final trick: once you find a weight loss product that works for you, stick with it. Don't jump onto the next bandwagon just because it's there. As soon as you find a product that helps you lose weight, stay with it!

Whether you choose a diet book, a ready meals program, an exercise DVD or a metabolism boosting pill (or a combination of these) for your weight loss program, make sure you follow your chosen program. It's all too easy to start off with the best intentions, only to let things slip a few days or weeks later.

You owe it to your health to lose that weight and keep it off!
