  • No. It has been found that vitamin pills cause tumors. I do make and drink a lot of herbal teas and infusions. I buy the herbs in bulk.

  • There's no substitute for exercise. You can't get it in a pill. There are also no magic formulas for losing weight, it takes discipline to eat the right foods and exercise but it isn't rocket science, you can do it if you choose to.

  • 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:
    Eat an apple or a big pile of vegetables before meals

  • wholeheartedly agree with rkoloms.

    a healthy diet and lifestyle with exercise and physical activity is way better than a pill.
