  • Well... they're expensive.

    The weight loss game, I think, was best expressed by George Clooney, after gaining 40 pounds for a part, then shedding it again. When he was asked how, he replied that he'd found a revolutionary new program, guaranteed to succeed: eat less and do more.

    If there is an appetite suppressant, it's either caffeine (which you can get for the price of a cup of coffee ;P) or dangerous or illegal --or all 3.

    Eat food, mostly fresh, in smaller portions. Getting up off the couch (away from the keyboard) for something as simple as a 15 minute walk three or four times a day... and soon you'll have more energy, more oxygen to your brain and more interest in adding other healthy lifestyle activities...

  • I have used them before they did not work all that well for me about dieting I did just use the Acai Detox and that really did work great for me.

  • Diets and diet aids are temporary fixes. Unless you learn how to eat healthy for life, you will not be able to maintain a healthy weight and will stay on the gain/lose roller coaster. Drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water every day. Eat 6-7 servings of whole grains (brown rice, whole grain bread, etc.) every day. Eat 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, in at least 3 different colors. You will lose weight. You will maintain a healthy weight. You will get sick less often. You will be setting a wonderful example for your children. You can get free meal plans and recipes from Dr. McDougall, or find his books at your local library:
    Eat an apple or a big salad before meals. Feel free to contact me if you have questions or would like meal suggestions.
