There are a few things that we can always know for certain about Thanksgiving. The first is that “that” family member will say something that will cause the rest of the family to feel frustrated, embarrassed or completely baffled. The second is that everyone will eat way too much at dinner. The third is that there will be lots of leftover turkey to eat over the next few days.
For many families, the only option for leftover Thanksgiving turkey is re-heated turkey with re-heated leftover sides. Then, there is the traditional turkey hash that everyone has had at least once, whether they wanted to or not. Then there’s the turkey sandwich, which many of us make when we’ve pretty much given up on eating the same reheated meal yet again.
It’s such a shame that so many families have faced these boring leftovers year after year because turkey has a tremendous amount of potential. When it’s already cooked – as is the case with leftovers – the “hard part” is already done! (more…)
Adipex is a highly prescribed diet drug for people who suffer from obesity and who need to reduce their body weight to lower their risk of certain serious health conditions. It is a brand name form of the generic medication known as Phentermine. That said, despite the fact that it is prescribed to millions of Americans every year, it doesn’t mean that it’s appropriate for everyone.
There are a few things that any dieter should know about Adipex before heading to the pharmacy to fill that prescription. These include the following:
• Adipex won’t do the work for you – Although Adipex can be used as a helpful tool to improve the success of your diet, it won’t actually do all the work. You will still need to follow a diet that includes healthy, calorie controlled eating habits and regular fitness appropriate activities. If you don’t do these things, Adipex will be of little benefit to you as it is meant to help reduce your appetite, boost the fat loss resulting from exercise and increase your energy levels. (more…)
Many people who suffer from obesity and who want to be able to use prescription weight loss drugs to help them to lose the excess weight don’t realize what that usage actually looks like. For instance, many people don’t know that there is a required break that must occur after every few weeks of use with several weight loss medications.
For instance, when using Phentermine (Adipex), the drug becomes gradually less effective as the user continues to take it. The body develops a tolerance to it, decreasing its effectiveness. Boosting the dosage is typically out of the question as it only raises the risk of severe and dangerous side effects as well as addiction and associated withdrawal symptoms.
Even if a doctor recommends that you continue using these medications for several months at a time, breaks every few weeks will be mandatory in order to keep up the effectiveness of the benefits while avoiding the potentially risky and rather unpleasant drawbacks. (more…)
