  • the best diet pill is NO diet pills.....pills are NOT the answer, proper healthy diet within your calorie range and exercise....enough so you are burning more than you consume in a day is all you need....and it won't kill you down the road like diet pills can and have!

  • No pills needed- make sure you are getting plenty of fiber, water, lean proteins, fruits, vegetable, and beans and legumes in your diet. Eat small frequent meals every 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Have you ever looked into eating clean? Part of what works for me is that I'm not hungry with this plan. There's a group on here that's got some good information about clean eating. Over 60 lbs lost so far!

  • Right, as others have said, there are no safe and effective appetite suppressants. Meridia (generic sibutramine -- which had been FDA approved and was available via prescription) was pulled from the market last fall due to dangerous heart problems it was causing. "Sibutramine is a centrally-acting serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor structurally related to amphetamines, although its mechanism of action is distinct." WebMD has a great review of prescription wt loss aids:

  • another vote for NONE,sorry mama! Drink lots of water and eat whole foods, especially proteins and those high in fiber...they will fill you up and "supress" your appetite in a safe, healthy way :)

  • Scaaary....I stay away from diet pills. It's not the healthy way to go and can be very dangerous even.

  • Let's see how many vote downs I get :) Alli is FDA approved and it blocks half the fat you eat from being absorbed.
