Weight Loss

There is a growing awareness about how serious this problem is. In the latest international report, 57% of western adults are overweight and 29% of these are diagnosed as medically obese. The long term effects on individual health, families and the economy could be quite devastating. A person's body weight tends to range within 10% of a set value. Weight alterations in either direction cause changes in energy expenditure that favor a return to the set-point. This mechanism helps explain the terrible problem of recidivism following attempted weight loss. Only by reaching a lower weight for a period of time can the person get used to feeling lighter. Herbal medicine when used properly can greatly help assist one in there weight loss goals.
