Diet Pills Addiction Risk

Diet Pills Addiction

Diet pills are used to aid weight loss and can be particularly useful in treating obesity in patients who are at higher risks for weight-related illnesses. However, despite their usefulness, the frequent and unmonitored use of diet pills often leads to addiction, which is one of the most dangerous and unhealthiest methods of losing weight.

Prevalence of Eating Disorders in American Women

In a survey conducted by SELF Magazine and published in 2008, it was found that “Sixty-five percent of American women between the ages of 25 and 45 report having disordered eating behaviors”. These disordered eating behaviors range from anorexia and bulimia to skipping meals and dieting using unhealthy methods, such as starvation diets and laxatives.
