I’m struggling to lose weight and I’m considering taking NV weight loss beauty pill, hoping it will help me lose weight faster. Does it work? I’ve heard Carmen Electra is using it to keep her weight down. Thanks. Jenn. – via Ask Questions.
I think Carmen Electra endorses NV. I do not know if she is actually taking it. Maybe she has to, if it is in her contract with NV, but I doubt it.
Does it work? NV claims to be “the first rapid weight-loss beauty pill”, which makes me immediately suspicious – - rapid weight-loss and beauty in one pill? The â€˜beauty complex’ contains Collagen, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Silica, Biotin and Coenzyme Q10.
I am not a beauty expert, but the fact is – in its entirety, the so-called â€˜beauty complex’ is only 11 mg, which is a laughable amount.
The usual dose for Coenzyme Q10 alone is 200-400 mg a day. In the absence of any medical problems, a minimum daily Alpha Lipoic Acid dosage ranges from 100 to 300 mg – - 11 mg for all five ingredients is just meaningless.
The â€˜energy complex’ contains Taurine, Panax Ginseng Extract and Rhodiola Rosea Extract – - these ingredients are often found in energy drinks, but again, 22 mg is a very small amount. For instance, Red Bull contains 1000 mg of taurine.
Now we get to the good stuff – the â€˜weight-loss complex’ consists of standardized Green Tea Extract, Theobromine and Hoodia Gordonii.
Lately, Hoodia has been in the news a lot – no, not because it seems to be an effective appetite suppressant, rather, it was reported that up to 80 percent of the Hoodia Gordonii supplements sold in U.S. do not actually contain Hoodia.
If NV diet pill contains authentic Hoodia, it may help suppress your appetite. As for Greet Tea, in my opinion, its “fat-burning” properties are a bit over-hyped.
I do not know if NV diet pill works. I do know, however, that you cannot take a pill and expect to lose weight. Maybe if you take NV diet pill, it will suppress your appetite, which could be helpful, but to lose weight permanently you need to learn good eating habits.
The best way to lose weight is to figure out what led you to gain weight in the first place. Once you know that, if you follow a good diet and exercise, your chances of not only losing weight, but losing weight permanently, would increase tremendously.
Update: Due to a fair amount of emails I have been receiving lately asking to recommend a good diet – if you do not know what diet to follow – for a permanent and healthy weight loss – I would recommend Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle program.
It is not a fad diet, but it is a complete program, which is easy to understand. It does not force you into a specific diet – rather, it is designed to give you nutrition and exercise knowledge, which you can use at your own pace to lose fat and/or build muscle.
