However, when confronting the possible solutions associated with losing weight, the people involved face a first dichotomy that forces them to make a decision. I mean the “how”. It can be done “well” , taking the appropriate measures that imply a change in the habits of life that in each case have led each one to gradually increase its weight … and it can be done “badly” , that is, using any of the very frequent and ubiquitous “slimming solutions” that are really just cosmetic devices specially designed to calm consciences and thus reaffirm the user in the confidence that something is already being done to tackle the problem of overweight. Doing “wrong” and resorting to these cosmetic devices implies, to be clearer, resort to the so-called “miracle products” (among other possible bad solutions).
However, as has been shown in numerous entries throughout the almost four years of existence of this blog, there is not one of those “miracle products” that have managed to prove per se to be effective in that of “help us lose weight” . Neither the artichoke , nor the raspberry ketone , nor the garcinia cambogia , nor the hawk’s eye , nor the slimming bracelets or earrings , nor the phaseolamin , nor the apple cider vinegar , nor the capsaicin , nor the green tea , nor the coffee of the same color , etc. … have provided conclusive evidence of being effective in these matters. Yes, I know there are many, some even that have not been touched on the blog, but I insist: none is worth. Any. For something they are called miracle products .
But there are worse news …
Anyway, the worst thing about taking any of these slimming supplements is not that they do not do anything, nor is it in the fact of leaving a paste (because on top of that they are quite expensive, and even more considering their lack of effectiveness) … the worst is that their use is, in the long run, counterproductive to the interests of people who decide in a moment to use them . And do not get me wrong, because although its “metabolic” effect does not help you lose weight, I’m not saying that from that same effect make you fat.
What does happen is that users who resort to these “solutions” obtain from their subconscious a “liberating” response that translates into a greater indulgence at the time of making those dietary choices less indicated for their purposes . Overall, ” I’m already taking care of myself with the pill … and therefore I can afford dietary excess ” would be a way to summarize the fact.
Thus, with the obtaining of that liberating sensation the users relax in the control of the ingestion because for it they have made rest in the miracle product the attainment of the programmed objectives, that is to say to lose weight . It is a subconscious, unintentional psychological consequence that could imply weight gain in the long run. Just the opposite of what is being pursued. Take paradox.
I say what I say because that is what has been highlighted in a recent study entitled The Liberating Effect on Dietary Control of Weight Loss Supplements: An Experiment in real context). The study involved 70 women between 18 and 34 years old who wanted to lose weight. Once separated into two groups, the first group was given a pill informing them that it was a placebo (that is, letting them know that what they were being given was useless or what is the same “placebo control condition known “) and those of the second were given the same pill (ie, also a placebo) but informing them that it was a true supplement for weight loss . Within the dynamics of the study, the women of both groups were informed that they were going to reward them with a free buffet lunch … and the researchers took good note of the reactions of the women of both groups to the lavish agape.
The results, which I have already told you in some way:
Women who thought they had received a supplement to lose real weight ate significantly more food and with a less healthy nutritional profile for their interests than those who knew that their pill was useless because they had previously been informed of this.
In short, the use of supplements to lose weight, any, in addition to not having proven to serve for nothing, serves for the people who use them to deposit confidence in the product they take to lose weight. Therefore, they increase the likelihood of eating more or worse (total … they already have their shield against the kilos gain … they must think) delaying in time the real solutions that would lead them to lose the extra kilos.
