DIET UPDATE: Matthew Vettese Urges Discernment with Weight Loss Drugs
A new diet pill could be entering U.S. markets soon—but nutrition expert Matthew Vettese says the best way to lose weight remains proper diet and regular exercise.
New York, New York (I-Newswire) May 23, 2012 - It is not uncommon to hear about the relative pros and cons of diet pills, but the reality of the matter is that diet pills are few and far between. The FDA approves weight loss pills so infrequently, it is a truly noteworthy occurrence when a new one comes to market. That might happen in the near future, however, as a medical panel has just recommended that the FDA approve a brand new weight loss pill. If approved, the pill will be the first FDA-sanctioned diet pill in more than a decade—but not everyone thinks this news is worthy of rejoicing. Nutritionist Matthew Vettese has issued a press statement in which he says the best way to lose weight remains the “old-fashioned way”—diet and exercise.
Vettese, who holds a PhD in nutritional science, says the new diet pill will likely be met with enthusiasm, but that it may not be all it’s cracked up to be. “Early reports indicate that the diet pill is being approved despite some fairly significant side effects,” the nutritionist reports. “While it is likely that these side effects will be somewhat rare, it is still an unnecessary risk that can be avoided through better nutritional education.”
Matthew Vettese says that diet pills pose a simple solution to weight loss, but not necessarily a lasting one. “The main reason we recommend not getting hooked on diet pills is simply that they offer such a short-term solution,” he notes. “As soon as you stop taking the supplement, you’ll likely start putting on the weight again. What people need to be healthy, and to look and feel their best, isn’t a quick fix, but rather a lifestyle change.”
According to Vettese, this is not a popular position among consumers, but it is nevertheless accurate. “People would love to buy a pill and lose weight overnight, but the truth is that this just isn’t healthy,” he confirms.
In fact, such rapid weight loss comes with its own set of worries for those who work in the field of nutrition. “Losing so much weight, so quickly, can actually prove very harmful to the body, and there have been many side effects observed,” explains Matthew Vettese. “There have been cases of rapid weight loss resulting in fatty deposits building up in the liver, and even instances of rapid weight loss prompting insulin resistance.”
The nutritionist concludes that the ideal option for weight loss is to adjust one’s eating and exercise habits. “Getting a balanced diet and regular physical activity does not sound glamorous, but it’s just what works,” Vettese offers.
