  • im a true non believer in diet pills.. you just need a good diet and exercise routine.. dont waste the money on the pills..i became a fitness coach just for this reason. a lot of women think they need pills but they dont. heck for the same you would pay for that you can get a nutrient shake and a workout tape like i have.. i think they are just water pills..ive tried plenty of diet pills and nothing worked except now what i do.. good luck!

  • I ought the ones with hoodia in them and they mess with my head. Like I get all spacey and apathetic..a little too relaxed lol. I never end up taking more than one.

  • I am doing nutrisystem right now and hot damn it working. It's expensive but worth it IMO. First time I've been able to lose weight in years.

  • 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
