Weight loss pills

Does anyone use a pill that they LOVE? I was losing weight and now I am at a stand still and feel like crap although I go to the gym daily. I wanted a weight loss pill to help me get back on track for a while. What about the Alli one off of tv?

  • do NOT take any weight loss pill that has not been approved by the fda. the one that claim to speed up metabolism affect your nervous system and can have serious side effects like jitters, and accelerated heart rate. as a nurse i recommend alli if your doctor will not give you a prescription pill. anyone who does NOT have success with alli is not following the diet and excercise plan needed for the pill to be effective. there is the known and feared side effect of loose bowels, but that will only occur if you eat to much fat in a meal. otherwise, added to a healthy diet and daily exercise alli is a great pill. before you make any decision talk to your doctor about how much weight you want to drop and your plan, and remember, there is no magic pill!!!! you have to eat right and exercise to see results. good luck.

  • How overweight are you? My doc gave me something and it's working quite well. People pass judgement, but it's my last resort and I haven't lost this much in 13 years. It works for me.

  • My mom tried Alli with no result... She also tried that colon cleanse stuff with no result... I've heard that hydroxycut works well... I'm not against weight loss pills, but I'm almost afraid to take them.... I had planned on trying hydroxycut, then found out I was pregnant again!!!

  • You think I haven't tried grapefruit, Atkins, and south beach, so are you overweight anon? How much have you lost on your grapefruit? I've tried many weight loss pills and I have found something that works. People like you always have something to say about it too! I bet you don't even have a major weight problem to be telling others what to do.
