We all should know that there is no such thing as a magical pill for weight loss. Yet everyday people spend a fortune on all sorts of weight loss pills.

Everyday it seems somebody is pushing a new pill that is supposed to make you loose weight. Websites, television commercials, magazines and every other form of media out there are full of experts, doctors and celebrities hocking new weight loss products.

The thing to remember is that the magical weight loss formula has not been invented yet. Most of the pills and other products sold will not help you loose weight. Indeed many of them are actually harmless and useless.

There are some drugs and supplements that actually encourage weight loss. Unfortunately these drugs and supplements will often hurt you as much or more than the weight itself.

Many people have heard of a magical weight loss product used by Hollywood stars and other celebrities. Sadly enough there is such a product but it is not what you think it is.

Actors, models and other celebrities often loose a lot of weight really fast by getting doctors to prescribe them a drug usually methamphetamine. This drug will help you loose weight but it is also addictive and can kill you. Obviously you don’t want to get hooked on methamphetamine so this is not a viable weight loss plan.

Unfortunately many of the celebrities who use such dangerous weight products will turn around and endorse weight loss products. The celebrities may not be using these weight loss products but they are certainly getting paid to say they are great. A good rule of thumb is to never believe a celebrity endorsement because the only thing the celebrity cares about is the check they receive for endorsing the product.
If you do hear about new pill for weight loss , check it out carefully before trying it. Go online and do a search on it. Then ask your doctor if the product is safe for you or actually works.

One thing to remember is that there are actually very few new or real diet products. Most of the miracle weight loss products being sold today are the same old snake oil that hucksters have been peddling for generations. They simply put a new label on the pills and sell them again.

Always view any sort of pill that’s supposed to help you loose weight with skepticism and caution.
