I know, I know, I said the word dieting. It appears a lot in the news today. The only trouble is that a lot of the diets are fads and do not work, or else they can cause harm.
I have had Weight Watchers mentioned to me. I have also been informed about the Diabetic Diet and shown the different tables of different foods that can be used. So far, my problem seems to be that I have an over-active appetite.
I’ve checked out different diet ‘drugs’ that can be available. Ephedrine used to be referred to a lot until people found out that combining it with caffeine can cause heart stoppage. Eww! That is something to be avoided. I have heard about using a plant that I talked about before; but, I don’t know how it will react with the prescription drugs that I have to take each day.
I have also heard about Phentermine; but, I do not know how it will react with my medicines. One thing I have found out is that a lot of the medicines that we use today originally came from the plants around us. It is fascinating when you check out the history of old time folk remedies. Some were good; many were bad or downright dangerous. Like Laudanum (opium liquid) which used to be used a lot until people found out it was highly addictive and very destructive. Oh well, the best defense is research with each product or diet that you are curious about.
