Obesity has become such an epidemic in the United States, the FDA is considering approving a new prescription weight-loss drug – despite safety concerns about it.
It seems the health effects of being overweight override officials’ concerns about Qnexa, a drug the FDA rejected two years ago.
That shocks weight-loss expert Don Ochs, who says neither diets nor drugs are effective, long-lasting solutions.
“When you understand the biology behind burning off fat versus packing it on, the whole notion of starving yourself on a low-calorie diet is absurd,” says Ochs, developer of the physician-recommended Mobanu Integrated Weight Loss Solution (www.mobanu.com). “And certainly taking a drug that can damage your heart is out of the question.”
Here’s what people should know about biology and weight loss, Ochs says.
To address his own weight problem, Ochs spent years studying the biology of fat burning versus fat storing based on research conducted at The Mayo Clinic and the National Institutes of Health. From that perspective he figured out how to recognize when the foods he ate were signaling his body to produce a lot of insulin, which results in storing fat instead of burning it off.
“When you feel very sleepy after a meal, or when you’re full and yet you still crave food, those are signals that you’ve flipped the switch and turned on your insulin production,” he says. “How many carbohydrates flip that switch is different for every person based on genetics.
Losing weight by working with biology and your own individual, genetically encoded insulin triggers is natural and a prescription for long-term success. It doesn’t mean you can eat whatever you want and never exercise, but it does mean you’ll feel full and satisfied and have lots of energy. And keep the weight off.
