Are You Risking Your Life To Lose Weight?

posted by Dr. Fitness -

I talked to an 18 year old get her swagger and flow back. She has put 10 pounds since Thanksgiving and see no sign of the weight gain slowing down. She panicked and reached out to a friend  She has friends using cocaine, meth and Molly's for weight loss...and her question was which one do I think is the best! (She was serious...Is this a common perception?)

Do you know someone who does this or feels this way?

Although some people, including celebrities, have used cocaine and speed or meth to lose weight, it comes with a lot of long term nasty side effects, not to mention the possible legal consequences.

Why are these drugs used? Because they can cause rapid weight loss, by suppressing your appetite. However, the weight reducing effects are short term, primarily because your body tends to use your healthy muscle as fuel instead of the fat and sugar you'd like it to use. 

Your body builds up a tolerance to the drug so weight loss tapers off and stops around six weeks after taking the drug. But this is usually the time when the addiction to these substances moves into overdrive.  Also, the weight that is lost is regained once a you stops taking them. For these reasons, combined with how addictive the drugs are make them dangerous.  Starving yourself of important nutrients is never a way to approach weight loss.

 Would you risk your life to be slim quick?
