Obesity is one serious health challenge that comes with severe complications that can impair a person's breathing, heart rate, mobility and even overall health. Hence most people are in a bid to keep fit so as to have an attractive physique.
People today like the easy way out, as exercises have been known to be time consuming and stressful especially for women who have just had babies or are overweight. For these and several other reasons, different drugs over time have been introduced to the market in respect of this effect and those who consume them testify that these drugs actually, are very potent.
Looking at the medical and societal set up we've got in a place like Nigeria, I think we'll have to choose between drugs and exercises owing to the benefits one stands to enjoy when you partake in exercises regularly
Here's why you should choose exercises over drugs
◾Drugs can be easily abused but never have we heard of people abusing exercises. So it's better you get addicted to regular doses of exercise.
◾Drugs predispose you to heart, kidney and liver damage and I'm sure everyone knows how expensive transplant of these vital organs can be. Meanwhile exercises would even improve how these organs function, for instance regular exercises helps the heart pump blood more effectively.
◾Many of these drugs, especially the imported ones aren't registered with NAFDAC. So the guarantee of their effects is not one anyone can vouch for. Whereas exercises have been proven over time to be effective even before the advent of regulatory agencies like the FDA or NAFDAC.
◾You'll require quite a humongous amount of money if you're dependent on drugs to slim down while exercises would cost you little or nothing because you can exercise your yourself right in the comfort of your house. So the choice is all yours, how financially prepared are you ?
◾If you may know, exercises have a calming effect on the body while slimming pills on the other hand, can make one become unnecessarily restless,sleepness and agitated.
◾Consistent exercise routines go a long way in building one's strength and stamina while some drugs if abused, can cost you your agility. Would you sacrifice your agility for your desired body type ?
◾Lastly, exercises are highly relevant to all age groups and body types while some drugs designed to have a slimming effect can be dangerous if used by people of a certain age group (children and pregnant women especially).
