Can FDA Approved Diet Pill Belviq Cure National Obesity Epidemic?
Denville, Morris County NJ personal trainer and fitness expert Carey Yang shares his thoughts on the newly FDA approved diet drug Belviq and recommendations to cure national obesity epidemic.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just approved another new diet pill called Belviq for doctors to prescribe to obese patients. The FDA had denied approval for this drug in 2010 when scientist showed concerns that the drug may actually cause tumors in people.
"Tumors!" exclaimed Carey Yang, a certified personal trainer and fitness expert in New Jersey.
Yang is the owner and master personal trainer at Beyond Fitness Solutions, LLC — a leading in-home personal training and weight-loss management company serving and helping clients in Morris County, Sussex County, Passaic County, Essex County and Somerset County areas in New Jersey.
"The FDA approved this drug after "new information"
The studies show that this drug has helped obese people lose as much as 5% of their body weight within a year. That means that a 300 lbs obese woman can lose as much as 15 pounds in a year.
"15 pounds or 5% weight loss in a year?" Yang said. " Give me a 300 lbs woman and I'll help her lose 15 pounds in 2-3 weeks by two simple solutions. One is by adding 15 to 20 minutes of walking to her lifestyle. And secondly, reduce or remove some starches from her diet."
Yang said, "I'm not sure these so called diet drugs really serve the people good for the long term. You and I know that what you do and how you do it is the ultimate fat loss solution because you make a lifestyle change, exercise regularly, and eat quality foods."
The generic public doesn't care. All they're going to see is the ten o'clock news when the talking heads tell them that the FDA has approved a new weight loss pill. Then they're going to see the TV ads from this drug company touting the new weight loss drug and encouraging them to "ask your doctor about it".
There are other more risky side effects Including serotonin syndrome - a potentially life-threatening drug reaction that causes the body to produce too much serotonin and causes symptoms of agitation, diarrhea, heavy sweating, fever, muscle spasms, tremors or mental health changes. People taking antidepressants or migraine drugs that increase serotonin levels may be at an increased risk for this side effect. The drug may also cause "disturbances in attention or memory, according to FDA.
"The choice is yours. FDA has approved prescription diet drugs before. Some were pulled from the market quickly due to damaging side effects reported. Can this time be different? We shall see." Yang said.
