Ways Of Treating Your Fat

There is one epidemic that has been steadily rising and affecting people from all walks of life and that problem is obesity. People are now getting fatter and when people gain weight, they tend to develop some conditions associated with weight gain like getting harder to breath and will get tired faster as well as diseases like diabetes and hearth problems. its no wonder that people are looking to find ways to loose weigh and most want a magic pill that when taken will reduce their weight drastically. But are there such things?

The biggest hope in achieving a pill that can magically cure obesity is rimonabant made by Sanofi-Aventis. this pill is already available in Europe. Rimonabant stifles hunger and craving by targeting the endocannabinoid system, which plays a big role in regulating weight. But doctors warn that you can't just take the pill and loose weight and stop. You will be taking the medicines for a long time if not for life. If you stop treatment and still don't change your eating habits. You weight will bounce right up.

Another cure being research in the fight against obesity is a vaccine against getting fat. The researchers has concluded that the best drug vaccines will be those that will work on the hormones coming from the gut. Scientist are looking at a hormone called ghrelin, this is a scourge among yo-yo dieters. When you diet, the body goes on survival mode and ups the production of ghrelin in your body which may slow your metabolism , encourage eating and force your body to retain fat.

Zapping out fat may be literal. Lasers are being developed that can zap your fat in the body without having to result to operations. The traditional way of getting the fat out of your body is via liposuction. But liposuction still requires a small surgery procedure that requires breaking into your skin. Although the risk are minimal. Deaths have occurred due to complications. So the laser is being developed as a suitable replacement to surgery which minimizes complications, infections and scarring.
