It seems like whenever January rolls around we’re bombarded with a slew of products promising effortless weight loss. We may suspect that the worst thing that could happen is we don’t gain weight – but think again.
The FDA recently released a report on several weight loss products that are tainted with various chemicals that have the potential to cause harm such as seizures, depression, insomnia, increased blood pressure, and increased heart rate.
We all know that losing weight involves changing our eating habits and getting more activity, yet wouldn’t we dearly love to lose weight simply by taking a pill? That’s not only a fantasy, it’s also a potential health disaster.
