char answered question Do you have to be overweight to go to a weight loss spa?

I don't think it's a mandatory requirement, but honestly I can't imainge why anyone who isn't overweight would want to go to a weight loss spa...since that's being over weight is kinda the point to these things. I mean, I don't think they'd not allow you to enter, and I guess that there is always something you can learn, but honestly, if I went to a weight loss spa and saw someone there who wasn't a part of the staff and was a helathy weight, unless they had a good reason, I'd almost feel like they were insulting me by being there.

jan answered question Do you need to get the mat with the Simply Fit Board?

I would recommend that you do get the mat for two reasons.

The first reason is that you will be able to do the simplyl fit board exercises no matter the surface, hard, soft, etc. It means that you don't always need to have carpet handy. Plus, even if you do it on carpet, it's better to have the mat to avoid wear and tear on the carpet from the friction of twisting the board on the same surface all the time. 

The second reason is that I feel it is better for your balance because you need to stay on the the mat, so you don't twist all around and move across the area. I find the workout is more of a challenge with the mat. This challenge along with the conveneince of being able to use the simply fit board easily, anywhere, makes it well worth it to get the mat in my opinion.

jan answered question Does "Rx" mean a non-prescription diet pill is a better product?

No. In fact, a non-prescription diet pill should never use the word Rx because this stands for a medical prescription. Only a legitiamet prescription medication should be called an Rx product. Nothing that is sold over the counter, whether it is a dietary supplement or actual drugs, is Rx. If yor see a non-prescription diet pill caling itself Rx or claiming to contain Rx ingredients, this is extremely misleading and the company is an irreputable one for using this incorrect terminology. I would stay far away from such products. Only choose product that are marketed with honesty and integrity. All companies will use marekting tactics to attract buyers, but there is a big difference between making something sound good and providing information that is false.

char answered question How long will it take for me to feel the effects of Phentermine?

You should start feeling the effects within a couple of days or a week after taking it. Hopefully, the effects won't bother you so what you're feeling won't be adverse effects. As for when you should start seeing weight loss, if you tolerate the pills well, and you follow all the directions form your doctor and keep up with your diet and exercise, you should notice weight loss in a month.

jan answered question Is garcinia mangostana and garcinia cambogia the same thing?

Garcinia Mangostana and Garcinia Cambogia are two different fruits. Garcinia Mangostana, also known as Mangosteen, is very similar to Garcinia Cambogia as it is also a tropical fruit that is believe to help with weight loss. Mangosteen is believed to have originally come from Indonesia and the Sunda Islands and has been used in Southeast Asia for years, most notably for treating urinary tract infections and skin conditions.

As for weight loss, it may be beneficial due to the fact that it is high in fibe (which may help to improve digestion and keep you fuller longer), is a natural energy booster, may boost metatoblism, boost mood and also interfere with fat formation and stroage. 

Of course, just like Garcina Cambogia,there is no clinical proof that Mangosteen is actually effective in aiding with weight loss.

char answered question Can stress make it harder for me to lose weight?

Yes it can. In fact, it really, really can. High stress will make losing weight a steep uphill battle. The reason is that while stress releases adrenaline, which require energy. At the same time it releases cortisol, which sends a message to your brain to replenish the energy that was wasted, even though you haven't actually used that many calories. The resuult is that you can become hungry, very hungry. Even worse, your body will cotinue to produce cortisol for as long as you're stressed.

Of course, when we get hungry from stress, we don't crave healthy snacks...we want all the sweets and high-fat foods becuase they stimulate the brain to produce pleasure chemicals, which can reduce tension. Also, coritosl encourages your body to store visceral fat, which is not only bad for weight loss but can also be dangerous to your health over time, as it can release fatty acids into your blood and raise insulin levels and cholesterol. 

Therefore try to keep your stress under control, both for your weight loss efforts and for the good of your health.

jan answered question Can increasing salt intake actually lead to weight loss?

No. There was a study involving astronuants that dealt with salt and weight loss but this doesn't apply to the average person on earth. Most of us eat WAY too much salt in a day which is not only bad for our weight (as it boosts bloating, and water retention etc.) but is also very bad for our health as it can raise blood pressure, etc. Plus, many of the high-salt foods we eat are pre-packaged foods which means that they are also high in calories and fat. 

Of course, salt is important to our health as we do require a certain amount for proper bodily function but most of us don't have a salt deficiency problem. You're already likely eating more salt than you need. Long story short, more salt isn't going to help you drop pounds.
