Get rid of overweight
Medication and caution effects
The principle of action that distinguishes this drug is quite simple. It significantly reduces the rate of absorption of fats and carbohydrates by the body, which helps prevent an increase in fat deposits, including while maintaining the same nutrition. In addition, Metformin helps to reduce insulin production and accelerate the breakdown of fatty acids.
Applying such tablets, it is necessary to observe certain precautions. The problem is that the change in metabolism imposes certain restrictions on the food used, as well as on the amount of food consumed in general.
Do not focus on athletes who take Metformin without any changes in the diet. Their body spends a lot of energy, so the likelihood of side effects they have is minimal.
Forgetting about this warning, you can disrupt all metabolic processes and achieve the opposite effect - a significant increase in fat mass instead of losing weight. In addition, the accumulation of glucose in a variety of tissues can cause diabetes and even coma.
It is also not recommended to consume a lot of carbohydrates - this means that when you use the drug, you need to exclude from your diet potatoes, pasta, as well as all fast food and rice.
If you do not play sports, then the maximum energy value of food that can be used with the preparation is 1200 kilocalories. In practice, this means that, using Metformin for weight loss, you will be forced to seriously limit your diet.
With light jogs in the morning and gymnastics, you can eat up to 1600 calories, and for serious sports activities - up to 2000.
In addition, Metformin in any form is forbidden to take in many diseases, including:
- type 1 diabetes;
- diseases of the cardiovascular system;
- renal failure;
- lung disease;
- bleeding disorders;
- exacerbation of diabetes.
It is worth mentioning that using Metformin, you must completely give up alcohol in any kind. It is also forbidden to drink low alcohol drinks - including beer, cocktails and others.
It is also best not to take the drug if you have been on a diet with low nutritional value for a long time - in this case, the body can be brought to exhaustion quickly enough.
Scheme of use
If you decide to use Metformin as a means to accelerate weight loss, follow a diet and have no contraindications, you can go to the pharmacy to buy the drug.
It is worth noting that in our country the tablets from the two companies, the Russian Canon Canon and the German Gedeon Richter, are the most common.Both manufacturers are of fairly high quality, so the choice is only yours.
Tablets are recommended to drink twice a day before meals, choosing for this lunch and dinner. The standard dosage for a single dose is 500 mg. If the desired effect is not achieved, and side effects are not observed, you can take this means for losing weight in the morning, using the same mass of active substance.
Care should be taken with this solution - the drug produced by Richter or Canon contains the minimum amount of excipients, but the same cannot be said about other manufacturers. The result can be the accumulation of toxic substances in the human body.
The duration of the course, during which it is worth taking Metformin, using it for weight loss, is 3 weeks. When you begin to drink the drug, it is better to limit physical activity for 3-4 days. If there are no significant side effects, you can begin sports activities - this will greatly enhance the effectiveness of its action.
Also, after taking Metformin from Gedeon Richter, Canon Pharma or other manufacturers, it is recommended not to stop playing sports, otherwise a so-called cancellation effect may occur, which results in minimizing the results of losing weight.
It is not recommended to drink pills if you have side effects from using such a remedy:
- pain in muscles and joints;
- skin redness stained;
- loss of consciousness;
- strong discomfort in the intestines.
