If there was a pill you could take to lose all the weight you wanted to your hearts content instead of spending endless hours at the gym, would you take it? My neighbor saw me going for a walk the other day and was kind enough to tell me that she pops weight loss pills regularly because she doesn’t have the patience to work out. As I stood there looking at her flat stomach and cellulite free thighs I was stricken with envy. She gets to look like that without breaking a sweat?! But then the rational part of me kicked in and I considered the pros and cons of it all in greater detail. I realized that my health is far more important than my physical appearance and that vanity is not worth compromising my life.
But what if there was an easier way to do away with extra pounds without the risk associated with so many dietary gimmicks?
Just recently a new miracle pill hit the market achieving a remarkable result; both proponents and naysayers of the drug are in agreement that the pill works. It’s a dietary supplement called raspberry ketone and its said to cause such a significant amount of weight loss that it runs the risk of being abused by non-dieters. Raspberry ketones are the chemical compound that give raspberries their delicious smell and they've been used to flavor sodas and even cosmetics.
Nearly 23 percent of normal-weight individuals considers themselves overweight and were therefore four times more likely to misuse diet aids
In essence, it’s a miracle fat-burner but its presence on the market has been controversial to say the least. The biggest concern is that the wonder drug may result in too much weight loss. For women like myself who have been trying to lose belly fat and more for years, losing too much weight doesn't quite compute as a negative as long as there are no major side effects.
According to Lisa Lynn, a leading weight-loss expert and television health contributor, many of her clients have been supplementing with raspberry ketones and experiencing stunning fat-loss results in as few as five days. Social Media has gone wild with reports from individuals that have used the supplement and achieved mind blowing results. Before you go rushing to turn on your computer and place your order, remember that it’s always a good rule of thumb to consult with your physician before adding supplements to your daily regimen. Be sure to purchase this one from a reputable source if you plan to give it a go.
