Hi, I'm Charlotte Lawson, a registered and licensed dietitian here in Tampa Bay, Florida. Now, if you're on a weight loss program and maybe haven't seen the success that you want, you might at this point be turning to a diet pill. Well, keep in mind, there's been no easy pill or magic food that really helps with overall weight loss. Now, a lot of diet pills contain different things that can possibly stimulate your metabolism for a short period of time, or even increase your energy a bit. Consider caffeine. Caffeine is actually one of the main components in a lot of marketed diet pills out there these days. Now, caffeine gives us a surge of energy for a short period of time. It can cause our heart to beat a little faster, which could burn off a few more calories and also maybe helps increase our workout time which actually is probably a decent benefit here. Also keep in mind you crash from caffeine though. So, you have a short buzz, but then you also go through a short period of fatigue, maybe even some headaches especially if you haven't had a regular amount of caffeine that maybe you were used to. So again, only as a dietary aid but not as an ultimate answer. Ultimately weight loss comes from a negative calorie balance and this means negative calories, or excuse me, less calories in and more calories out and this can be achieved by choosing better and healthy foods in our diet and also incorporating a good workout program. So, be careful with choosing diet pills especially since a lot of them have been pulled off the market and also keep in mind the government a lot of times does not oversee or mandate certain laws with these. So, even though they may claim certain things in the package there has been no law or regulation to actually what's been put in them which can be kind of scary sometimes. So again, ultimately weight loss, less calories in, more calories out through a combination of healthy diet and exercise. I am Charlotte, and eat happy.
