How to Spot Empty Diet Promises

If you’ve ever watched television during the wee hours, you’ve likely come across commercials for miracle weight loss products. For the sake of your own safety, you should always view these commercials with a skeptical eye.

This video from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration attempts to pull back the curtain on so-called miracle weight loss products. Many of these products have “supplements” that are actually drugs for blood pressure and seizures. Some companies sell weight loss treatments that are not approved by the FDA and can potentially cause cancer or other serious conditions.

The best way to find a reliable weight loss strategy is to  consult your doctor . If you live in or around West Hills, call West Hills Hospital at (818) 676-4000 to set up an appointment.
