Re: Diet pills?

Most common diet pills usually works by helping to lower the calorie intake of the food you eat.
Some diet pills make you lose water instead of fats, so don't be rejoice when you see weight loss as it may be your water in your body is lose instead of fats.

So the conclusion is, the diet pills that helps you to reduce the calories from the food do helps you to lose some fats and weight but the down side is once you start taking diet pills, you will need to continue taking them because if you stop, the weight rebound will start to haunt you, as a results, you may gain more weight than your original weight. Reason is simple, once you stop taking diet pills, the calories from the food you eat will not be reduced with the help of that diet pills, thus your body cannot accustom to the sudden large intake of calories and so it doesn't have enough metabolism to break down the calories and as a result, those extra calories will be stores as fats.

Therefore, diet pills can only help you in the short term. In the long term, I dun think you will wants to rely on that pill for the rest of your life.

Re: Diet pills?

If diet pills are really good and effective, I think there is no need for exercising already

Re: Diet pills?

I haven't taken diet pills myself, but I know a couple of individuals who have turned to diet pills for help in losing weight. I have to say though that they didn't rely solely on diet pills. They combined healthier diet, exercise, and diet pills to fight off those unwanted pounds.

Effective pills are all illegal. Legal ones only contain worthless herbal extract that don't do much

Re: Diet pills?

Most people are sensitive to the word " diet pills " and no matter what they will sure discourage you.
What you think you want and if you are able to control, I don't see any reasons why should diet pills be outcast. But safest method will be going to a doc and he/she prescribe to you then should be ok ba

Re: Diet pills?

I would not recommend diet pills, instead I would recommend diet supplements. This kind of supplements helps to boost the body metabolism from a slow rate to a higher rate, as a results, high metabolism will in turn burns fats. Isn't it safer? And most importantly, no weight rebound. Just my opinion. Hehe.

Re: Diet pills?

I think there are supplements proven to aid fat burning (with exercise) like L-carnitine... maybe ask drugstores like GNC for advice? But also do your own research before buying, don't fall prey to sales...

Re: Diet pills?

If you really want to partake in diet pills, please consult with a GP as you probably have no idea what is inside the pills and if you self-medicate, you might run into some adverse drug reactions.

That being said, i don't think there is a magic pill to help you lose weight. If there is, it would probably be a prescription drug as the side effects would be enormous, cos you are trying to get rid of something that is native to your body. A good example would be the relationship between cancer cells and chemotherapy

Re: Diet pills?

Everyone wants a magic pill. Diet pills claim to work, but so does eating healthy and getting lots of exercise. The healthy stuff comes without all the risks that diet pills come with. I don't take them and hope I never have to.

Re: Diet pills?

I don't think diet pills are good long-term solutions for weight loss because even if they work in the short term, while you're taking them, you can't take them forever. Once you stop taking them, if you haven't changed your diet and exercise habits, you'll just gain all the weight back, plus some.

Re: Diet pills?

You do not want to take diet pills. Why not do it the healthy way and get the weight off by eating right and exercising? You'll be so much happier. Your health is something you do not want to mess up with diet pills.
