Kirstie Alley is steadily becoming the size 10 she has always dreamed of… Â She’s an inspiration to all of us who endeavour to lose the inches this summer before fitting into that beautiful bikini, purposefully purchased a size too small. Her stint on the American show, Dancing with the Stars, is doing wonders for her physique and she is a great example of what exercise and diet can do for weight loss. Kirstie had been 16 stone (224lb) at her heaviest and lost 5 stone (70lb) in 2006, but had subsequently regained the weight.
There are those who get used to being overweight, so for many it takes being told they have a problem in order for them to snap out of denial. Sometimes they catch a glimpse of a holiday photo like a Stockport Mother who recently told her weight loss story to the Daily Mail. It was the shock of seeing her bikini clad 21 stone figure that spurred her on to shed the pounds.
For years, she tried fad diets and exercise regimes. Â However, Â the cravings she got for cakes and biscuits meant that nothing would help unless she stopped feeding herself. In the end she decided on stomach bypass surgery which helped her lose 10 stone and find happiness in love after 20 years a single woman. Dropping nine dress sizes certainly has helped.
For those who do not want to resort to surgery there are other options that should first be explored. This lady talked about the bad experiences she had with slimming pills and diet pills but this Stockport Mum went to a slimming clinic, places that are famous for prescribing what a doctor would not dream of prescribing to eager weight loss candidates. Phentermine, in its current formulation, is generally not prescribed because of its amphetamine like quality and its addictive effects but slimming clinics dish it out and give people the quick fix they need anyway. There is no point looking good if you feel dreadful.
Qnexa which is a combination of phentermine and topirimate will hopefully be approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). This formulation has proven to cause substantial weight loss and such side effects do not come with it. Until it is approved, Xenical is available on prescription.
Xenical is the only drug licensed in the EU for weight loss and must be purchased on prescription. One must be sure they are not otherwise contraindicated for the weight loss pill. Xenical should be taken with a moderately low in fat diet and plenty of exercise. Xenical has proven itself successful in trials and if taken correctly the results can be very satisfying.
Kirstie can do it and she did it without a slimming pill although I imagine that a Hollywood lifestyle makes the process of losing weight a whole lot easier!
