Do Weight Loss Pills Really Work? - Belviq

I truly am not a fan of any drug of any kind and cringe with the thought of adding chemicals into my body.  Thus I was adamant that I would lose weight using lifestyle changes, good eating, and routine exercise to make it happen.  Slow, steady and successful.  Forget magic pills - the best way to lose weight and keep it off forever is to depend on yourself and do it naturally. 
But with that out of the way, so you know I have a jaded opinion, I figured it might be resourceful to share some medical studies about some new weight loss drugs.  I'm not a Doctor or researcher, just someone passing on the findings of others. 
Today's weight-loss drug is Belviq.
Belviq (lorcaserin) activates a serotonin receptor in the brain that may help a person eat less and feel full after having eaten smaller portions of food than normal.  During clinical trials, patients on average lost 5% of their body weight, even after taking the drug for a year.  This was a combination of drug, decreased food intake and increased exercise. 
There are some concerns in the medical community that the drug could potentially damage heart valves, especially since a similar type of drug (Fenfluramine) was taken off the market in 1997 due to concerns of heart damage.  Plus there are long term unknowns such as an increased risk for heart attack or stroke when used with other diet medications.
Side effects include potential headache, dizziness, fatrigue, nausea, dry mouth and constipation.
So all that potential negative for a lousy 5% reduction in body weight over a year?  And it still required modifications in diet and exercise to achieve even that.  Makes me wonder what they were eating and how they were exercising.  For a 300lb person, that yields a 15 pound loss.  I started at 297 pounds and dropped 50 over 5 months without any extremes or pills...just sayin... you can read about it here on my website.

      Speaking of losing weight, it can be done with zero exercise minutes per day. Weight loss comes down to energy balance, as long as you’re eating fewer calories than you are burning (you burn calories every second, regardless of what you’re doing), you will lose weight. Exercise is one way to manipulate this energy balance and increase the amount of calories burned.

      So yes, it is certainly possible to exercise for 1 minute and lose weight.
