One of the hardest parts of losing weight is reducing the amount of food we eat on a daily basis. Diet and exercise work in conjunction to help individuals lose weight, and a big part of a diet is restricting your calorie consumption to go in line with your weight loss plan. When the food cravings are too strong to resist, Medarts Weight Loss Specialists can help with anorectics, also know as appetite suppressants.

What are anorectics? 

These medications control the appetite and are designed to get patients jump-started on the diet and weight loss program. Anorectics work to alter the digestive process of the body to give artificial feelings of being full. Anorectics literally mean "without appetite", and when you come to Medarts Weight Loss Specialists in Downtown San Diego you will find that appetite suppressants take away troublesome cravings that can lead to weight gains.

How do Anorectics help me lose weight?

We all know hunger pangs. Either from a physical need to refuel the body or emotional cravings, hunger pangs can hit you unexpectedly at any time. They can be too strong for even the most focused and motivated mind to overcome. Enter Anorectics and appetite suppressants for weight loss.   When taking appetite suppressants you no longer have as many hunger pangs or cravings for food and a reduction in hunger. This leads to a reduction in the amount of food consumed, which in turn leads to weight loss!

How Do Appetite Suppressants Work?

Many cravings have nothing to do with hunger, but rather are a reaction to a feeling or emotion. The term "stress eat" is only too familiar to many, as feeling overwhelmed can lead people to find solace in the taste of delicious food. Anorectics work to overcome these brain signals that can trigger cravings and eating when not in need of food. By stimulating the nervous system, anorectics alter the chemicals in the brain responsible for cravings, as well as the feeling full. On top of this, the diet pills also interrupt the signal sent from the brain telling the body that it is hungry, increasing your ability to go without food. Finally, anorectics also increases the feeling of satiation and well-being. All of these factors work together to make it easier to avoid food and lose weight.

Are Appetite Suppressants Safe?

Appetite suppressants and anorectics have got a bad rap. Ever since Fen-Phen swept through the scene, when people hear "diet pill" they immediately think of a dangerous substance, but that is not the case with appetite suppressants. The FDA has become stricter in what they will and won't remove, and products on the market today are safe if used properly. If supervised by a doctor or medical professional, anorectics are safe with minimal side effects.

WHat are possible side effects of anorectics?

Like most prescription drugs, there is the possibility of some minor side effects from using anorectics.  Using appetite suppressants may lead to higher blood pressure, increased heart rate, insomnia, constipation, headaches and cotton mouth. These side effects are generally minor and will go away in a short amount of time. These side effects may at first glance appear concerning, however, it is important to put them in proper perspective. The side effects of obesity and being overweight, such as heart disease and cancer, are far more serious than the side effects from using anorectics, so if you struggle with your weight ask about appetite suppressants.
