Your head could spin trying to figure out which weight loss supplement is going to work for you. Pretty much every magazine has ads for products that are supposed to help you shed pounds. I have always wondered which ones worked and which ones were just a passing fad. I do know that some prescription weight loss pills got pulled from the market. That is not encouraging at all. Imagine going to a doctor and having had him prescribe the stuff to you. I was reading Garcinia Cambogia reviews to see what the consensus was about that supplement. I had never tried it.
I am not one to just go out and pick something up off of the shelf without learning about it first. I do not want to take any dietary supplements that have a stimulant effect. I do not want to take anything that can interact with medications that I take. Also, asking my doctor about taking a supplement is a good thing for the most part, but there is one drawback with that. He, like most doctors, has absolutely minimal nutritional training. You should ask your own doctor if he has any training in nutrition beyond what was offered in medial school. The trend for medical schools is to offer just the bare bones, pardon the pun, training in nutrition to their doctors they let graduate. Most people are completely unaware of that.
Therefore, a lot of bias goes into a physician deciding if a supplement is okay to take or not. Maybe it would be better to ask about what the risk profiles of taking certain supplements is rather than asking if it is just okay to take. You should be the one to consider the cost moneywise, not the doctor. The doctor should weigh in on matters such as if the supplement would cause any issues due to your medial conditions or prescriptions you are taking. You can figure out for yourself if it works for you or not by the pounds you lose.
