Weight loss in a bottle

There is and old saying, if it sounds to good to be true it usually is. Yet people ever day are looking for that miracle pill to shed that excess weight that they have accumalated over the years.

Did you ever notice that every time you turn around that there is the newest hottest product claiming that that you will loose weight fast, or burn that belly fat. Why do you think that is ?.

Weight Loss Includes Water, Fat and Muscle

When you are on a diet you will lose a combination of body fat, and muscle tissue. Studies show that when you diet, at first a relatively high percentage of this weight loss is likely to be water loss. Then the weight you lose is on average 75 percent fat and 25 percent muscle. Remember, water accounts for about 70 percent of the total body weight of an average person,the more obiese you are the higher percentage of water weight you carry. Muscle tissue contains roughly 75 percent water (plus 20 percent protein and 5 percent minerals), and body fat containing roughly 50 percent water.

As you can see it is easy to loose water weight fast !

The human body is not designed to shed weight. It is designed to survive! this is why it won't lose excessive amounts of fat in a short period of time. I hate to break the bad news to you but if you trully want to loose weight and keep it off you are going to have to work for it.

This is why you now seeing those miracles in a bottle have disclaimers saying that you need to have a sound eating plan plus excerise to see any benifit.

Caveat emptor
