  • Have not used it- but my understanding is that youhave to watch what you eat while taking it (or there will be side effects)
    To me-that seems like a waste of money-jsut watch what you eat without it!

  • Diets and diet aids (if they even work) 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 - frustrating for you and hard on your body. Drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water every day. Eat 5-6 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. Eat at least 2 servings of legumes every day. You will lose weight. You will have more energy. 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: http://www.drmcdougall.com/free.html
    Eat an apple or a big pile of vegetables before meals

  • You have asked about several different diet pills in at least half a dozen posts over the past few days.
    What is it going to take to get you to understand that there is NO MAGIC PILL?
    A few members here have already told you this.
    You have also been given excellent advice about watching calories and exercise.
    You don't want to lose weight this way.
    It seems that you want an easy way out and there is none.
    Maybe one day when you are over 200 lbs the light will go off and you'll realize that the only way to take weight off and keep it off is by diet and exercise.
