Jenny25 answered question How does fiber help to make you full?

Food that is high in fiber typically absorbs a lot of water and stays in the stomach for longer. This can help to create a feeling of fullness that lasts longer. Also, due to the fact that the bulk high fibe foods add to meals, this also requires you to chew more and for longer. This can lead to you eating slower yet still feeling satisfied. What's more high-fiber foods are tend to be low in calories and in fat, even thought they can make you feel fuller for longer. Finally, high-fiber foods take longer to digest by the body, another way that they can make you feel fuller longer. I recommend getting a balanced amount of both insolube and soluble fiber in your diet.

antoniojones1968 answered question Does white kidney bean suppress appetite too?

I don't think so. Isn't the claim for this substance that it helps to block carbs by blocking a certain enzyme in the body that helps to breakdown startches? I think it's supposed to help you digest fewer calories by blocking some of the carbohydrates that you eat. I don't see how this would help you control your appetite. or make you feel more full.

If you are going to take white kideny bean I think you're supposed to take it when you eat a regular carb meal. They won't do much for you if you follow a low-carb diet.  Also, I think there needs to be more clinical research done to determine the true effectiveness of this herb on weight loss.

Jenny25 answered question How long does a stay at a spa last?

It depends on the spa...or more importantly how much money you have. I think a lot of weight loss spas are deisgned for a certain number of days because I think you attend certain classes and things like that. Ulitmately though, I think it's really just up to you. I'd recommend taking a look at a few different resort to retreat options and choose the ones you like best. From there, see what sort of programs, services, etc. they offer and then decide for how long you'd like to stay. I'm sure if you can't find the answers you're seeking on the web, you can always drom the customer service representatives at one of the places an email or give them a call to find out more.

antoniojones1968 answered question what is the difference between Yohimbine and Yohimibe HCl?

The difference between yohimbine and yohimbe HCL is the first one is a naturally occurring compound and the second one is the synthetic version of the naturally occuring compounds (that's why there's the HCL attached to it).  While both types are designed to produce the same effects, some people find that yohimbine (the naturally occurring compound) is a little too potent and they are more likely to experience side effects from it, such as insomnia. It may also be more expensive than that synthetic variety.  That said, not only is the HCL version usually cheaper, it also doesn't seem to make people as jittery, restless or sleepless.

Jenny25 answered question Will I get toned from doing Yoga or Pilates?

Certainly! These exercises not only improve your flexibility and your range of motion, they also help to strenghten muscles, giving you a much more toned and firmer look. Pilates is especially good for this because it focuses more on strenght training and using your body as the weight. In fact, in terms of really toning up your body, I think I would recommend pilates over Yoga. I love Yoga, don't get me wrong, I just feel that it's better for your body and mind while I feel pilates is better for getting fit.

That said, do keep in mind that you can do all the pilates and yoga in the world but unless you actually melt away fat through cardio, you're not going to see how fit and toned your body is.

antoniojones1968 answered question How many studies have to be done on a drug before it's approved for sale?

Essentially, any drug that is approved by the FDA must undergo strict and rigorous testing approved by the agency. The entire processis evaluated. The FDA scrutinizes the design of the drug to clinical trials to the severity of the side effects and even the conditions under which the drug is manufactured. There are severl phases of study, first involving clinical trials with healthy humans and then it goes on from there. It's a very long process that can take years to complete. That would be why it often takes a while for new drugs to come out onto the market. Still, do remember that even some drugs that have been approved by the FDA are not necessrily safe or the right choice for you. The benefits do not aways outweigh the risks.

Jenny25 answered question Is bitter orange just as bad as ephedra?

I don't think it's as bad as ephedra but it can be dangerous. Bitter orange contians synephrine a naturally occuring stimulant in the herb that mimics the effects of ephedra such as increasing resting metabolic rate and energy expenditure, increasing weigh loss and boosting power and performance. That said some say that it is not as effective as ephedra. 

That being said, the FDA has warned that syneprhine can be dangerous, even for healthy individuals, particularly when it is taken in large doses and combined with caffeine. It can lead to high blood pressure, fainting, heart attack and stroke.

The trouble is that it is often combined with caffeine in diet pills. The reason it is combined with it is synephrine enhances the effects of caffeine. This also means it enhances the not so great side effects, such as insomnia, restlessness, jitters, anxiety, headache, etc.  Personally, I'm a little leary of products that contain bitter orange/synephrine/citrus aurantium (all the same thing).  I think more studies needs to be done on it to determine its safety.
