There is no easy or quick way to lose weight and it requires a lot of dedication and hard work. If you are serious about losing weight, then consulting a doctor to create a low-calorie diet plan together with a healthy exercise regime could be your first starting point. Many people turn to diet pills like Meridia as their only solution to overcoming their excess weight. However, it is a well known and researched fact that Meridia is mostly effective in conjunction with a low-calorie diet and an exercise regime. By communicating a signal of fullness to the brain, Meridia helps to speed up the weight loss process but it is by no means an answer in itself. That been said, every person will respond differently to Meridia when used as part of a comprehensive weight-loss program.
Some people may be able to lose 4 or more pounds of body weight in the first month they start taking Meridia diet pills. Those that don't achieve at least 4 pounds during the first month may find that they need to increase the dose or re-evaluate their weight-loss program.
Many people who start using Meridia as part of a low-calorie diet and exercise regime find that they loose weight in the first 6 months. A scientific study showed that more than 40% of people who use Meridia to assist them in losing weight achieve the desired weight loss within the first 6 months. Moreover, those that achieve the desired weight loss and continue with Meridia therapy plus diet and exercise maintain their overall weight loss over time. To give yourself the best chance in losing the excess weight and keeping it off, set yourself realistic weight loss goals, follow the diet-plan religiously and don't give up on the exercise until you have reached your desired weight loss. Those people who go on to the end and reach their expected weight loss goals tend to be much better at keeping the weight off after the program is over. Patience is a virtue when it comes to many things including losing weight. By losing it slowly you give yourself a better chance to get used to the new eating habits and lifestyle which means that when your program is finally over, you are more comfortable with continuing to maintain healthy eating habits and active lifestyle.
