I am becoming more and more concerned with the Skinny Pill culture. more and more I am hearing of skinny pills that rapidly reduce weight in weeks, and yet there is little conclusive evidence for the claims made by some.
We live in a Bio-medical culture. Bio medical is a term used in health and social care for an approach of medical science towards healthcare. In short, I get sick - I go to the doctor - I get a pill or two - I get well! That is the bio- medical approach in a nutshell. We are taking that approach to weight and fitness too! But it does not work like that. It takes the social model. We eat and drink well and exercise regularly. If we need a GP's advice, we take it and see if we can boost the scientificly proved approaches with more social model approaches. We exercise and take vitamins etc from trusted suppliers like Holland and barratt, or Boots. And we do all this with the GP's knowledge. Taking personal responsibility for ones health.
The problem with weight loss is that people are often taking solely the bio-Medical model without the work that does com in to the Socail medel. And wanting a quick fix.. A quick fix would not reduce weight!. To lose weight, especially quicklyneeds attention to diet AND exercise! there is no way around that's! You can get pills that help but they do not reduce like a martial art?trh.
