It seems that pretty much everything I look at these days has some kind of article or advertisement for weight loss products. I don’t know how many times a day I see Marie Osmond’s advertisement for Nutrisystem! Depending how long I’ve got the TV on each day I guess I see that commercial between five and maybe 15 times a day!
Maybe the commercials and ads are just standing out a little more as I’ve been thinking about the few extra pounds I’ve gained lately. it’s not easy having a chronic disease (Crohn’s). You become less active when you aren’t feeling well or in pain and the next thing you know you’ve gained some weight. It sucks.
One of the weight loss supplements I’ve been hearing about lately is alli diet pills. They apparently help reduce the amount of fat that your body absorbs. Back in the early 90’s I used to work in a pain clinic and one of the patients was taking a diet pill that sounded very similar to Alli, maybe it was Alli or a predecessor to the drug. Anyway … I don’t think she reduced her fat intake because the pills ended up causing problems for her. I guess they gave her the runs! I don’t know if Alli can do that to you or not .. hopefully they’ve overcome that problem.
Have you noticed an increase in weight loss ads or commercials? Maybe the companies that specialize in weight loss diets and supplements are stepping up their game since the holiday season is near. Everyone wants to look good for the holidays, don’t they?
