Propulsid (Cisapride)

My sister-in-law has been on a diet for two months, lost fifteen pounds, and swears that she has eaten pasta every day. Could this be possible?
Absolutely. There are only 200 calories in a cup of pasta (providing it’s not drenched in butter) and these burn slowly, giving a dieter lasting energy – along with protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, and quite a few important В vitamins. The right carbohydrates at the right time can be a dieter’s best friends.
You seem to be opposed to low-carbohydrate diets. Could you tell me why? Every time I’ve gone on one I’ve lost weight.
But have you kept that weight off? Obviously not. The reason most people feel that low-carbohydrate diets work is because they alter your mineral metabolism and bring about a quick loss of body water. Sure, it looks great on the scale, but this sort of dehydration is short-lived and takes its toll on energy levels. I’m not opposed to low-carbohydrate diets if the carbohydrates being cut out are those that shouldn’t be included in the first place – refined sugars, junk foods, and so on. It’s those guys that have given carbohydrates a bad name.
What’s so bad about taking diet drugs to help you reduce?
Aside from such possible side effects as insomnia, constipation (or diarrhea), dizziness, elevated blood pressure, heart palpitations, cerebral hemorrhage, seizures, and addiction, it’s been shown that people taking these drugs regain weight much more quickly than those who diet without them. Though you might lose more weight initially with an appetite suppressant, the odds of trimming down in the long run are against you. Changing your eating habits and selecting the right foods are what you need to really shape up.
Dietary-induced thermogenesis (DIT) is essentially a metabolic process that occurs after meals and increases the body’s rate of burning calories. (Exercising a few hours after eating – not right after – will help you lose weight because calories are burned faster than on an empty stomach.)
It’s not certain what triggers DIT, but it is known that carbohydrates are important to the process and lead to less storage of fat than the same amount of protein calories consumed. So, if you want to slim down, think twice about passing over the bun for the burger. Recent studies indicate that favouring meat over whole grains could substantially contribute to obesity.
I chew a lot of sugarless gum to keep my weight down. I know that gum doesn’t contain saccharin, but it does have other artificial sweeteners. How safe are these?
Most sugarless gums and dietetic sweets use mannitol and sorbitol as sweeteners. (These are absorbed slowly by the body, much like carbohydrates, and therefore have little effect on blood sugar levels.) As far as safety goes, neither of these sweeteners has been implicated as a carcinogen. On the other hand, both mannitol and sorbitol have been found to produce gas, bloating, cramps, and diarrhea.
