The FDA recalled 72 weight loss products due to "risky" ingredients.
"Some of the products claim to be 'natural' or to contain only 'herbal' ingredients, but actually contain potentially harmful ingredients not listed on the product labels or in promotional advertisements," the FDA said. "These products have not been approved by the FDA, are illegal, and may be potentially harmful to unsuspecting consumers."
A combination of strength training, cardio training and healthy, managed nutrition will give you the lean and toned body you want.
2. Fat loss vs. weight loss? Fat loss is more important than weight loss! If you burn fat and build muscle, you will permanently speed up your metabolism. This will give you permanent fat loss and weight loss provided you continue with regular exercise and healthy, managed nutrition.
Even those who do quick weight loss programs or fad diets (which I don't recommend) can build on the momentum and start doing things that will lean out their bodies. Its never too late to build muscle and eat right.
What about your weight loss? Can you sustain it? Or, will you weigh 40 pounds more in 2 months than you do today? Sure, you can starve yourself and lose 25 pounds in 2 weeks. But, when you begin to eat again, you will put the pounds back on.
Those who have succeeded at transforming their bodies from fat to lean have health and fitness practices that they do on most days. It becomes a sustainable lifestyle.
