Share Article

Dr. Len Lopez shares his thoughts on why we should stay away from the new over-the-counter weight loss drugs.

Nutrition and fitness expert Dr. Len Lopez, author of "To Burn or Not to Burn, Fat is the Question" shares his reasons why the new approved weight loss drug may not be beneficial to your health.

Many people are looking for that magic pill to overcome their weight loss efforts. Unfortunately there is NO magic bullet to help this growing epidemic of obesity according to Dr. Lopez.

Losing weight is an important part of becoming healthy, however new research is showing that medications don't make us healthier. Research is showing that losing weight with medications doesn't decrease the rate of heart attacks, strokes or diabetes.

Add that to the fact that your body loses nutrients with these medications and you can easily see how these new weight loss drugs can hamper your health.

Dr. Lopez discusses practical steps to losing weight which includes diet and exercise, but also covers how stress and adrenal fatigue can disrupt our hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline. These hormonal imbalances can throw off our metabolism and take us out of our fat burning mode.
