Obesity has been one of the killer diseases of the recent times resulting from unhealthy and sedentary lifestyles. For some, it is also a genetic or hereditary disorder. Obesity is an open invitation to many other ailments like heart disease, kidney problems, blood pressure, diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea and other related health issues.
In simple words, obesity can be explained as the disease of being excessively overweight. It can be measured by calculating one’s Body Mass Index (BMI). BMI takes into account ones height and weight and checks if the weight is normal for the given height or not. When the body weight is 20 percent more than what it normally should be, it is a sign of obesity. A BMI of more than 25-30 is an indication of being over-weight. A person is obese when his/her BMI goes above 30.
To treat obesity, numerous treatments and scientific techniques which also include surgeries in extreme cases have been innovated. What has been a fad amongst obese people though is the use of slimming pills.
One effective way to treat obesity is Xenical. A slimming capsule, Xenical works inside the digestive system by blocking one-third of the fat in the food you eat. There are digestive enzymes naturally produced in human body, which are called as the lipases. These enzymes help break down food and fat during digestion. Xenical attaches itself to the lipases and blocks it from breaking down some of the fat from the food. This unbroken fat cannot be absorbed by the body system and hence gets excreted from the body. About 30 percent of the bad calories come from fat.
Those who combine intake of Xenical with healthy physical exercises and fitness regimes see successful result. An oral intake of 120 mg of Xenical with liquid three times a day with low-calorie diet results in weight cut down. A Xenical capsule during the course of a main meal or an hour post meal can help in bringing down fat intake. In case of skipped meals, it is safe to skip a dose of Xenical. However, one should note that more than 120 mg of Xenical during each of the meals does not imply that it will show faster results or additional weight-loss.
Remember, Xenical is most effective when supplemented with healthy diet and exercise. However, it is recommended to consult your doctor before planning to take this treatment. Xenical is not recommended for pregnant women and those who have food absorption and gallbladder problems and are allergic to any of the ingredients in Xenical. So check before you buy it. Also, it is important to tell the doctor if you have liver, kidney and thyroid problems and anorexia and other eating disorders and if you are under any other medical treatment.
