Don't bash! But I need diet pills or something to get this weight off! HELP!

I have put on a couple pounds lately & cannot get it off. I workout 4-5 times a week & eat right. I just need a boost to help me shed a few pounds. Any suggestions for over the counter pills?

  • Adipex works great but it has to be prescribed.

  • I don't know anything about OTC diet pills but I know my step mom had a great prescription from her doctor. Would you be able to ask your doctor for something? After this pregnancy I', going to try to get something too. Good Luck!

  • I have more than a couple of pounds to lose, but I have lost 16 so far replacing breakfast and sometimes dinner with Arbonne's protein and fiber shake combined. Great vitamins and 20 grams of protein. It's working for me. Let me know if I can get you info on it.

  • Are you tracking calories?

    If you eat more calories that you burn then you'll gain weight.
    There are many sites and calculators that will help you figure out how many calories to eat to lose.

    Eat 30 grams of protein within 3 hours of waking up and less than 10 net carbs.

    I've lost 90 lbs this way.

    The only "pills" I take are *quality* multivitamins, extra calcium and Vit D-3.
