Diet Pills
- Em17 on 23-Feb-12 08:49 PM

Hey everyone. I was just wondering if any of you have tried diet pills for weight loss. I have read some reviews all online and I am thinking about it but I don't know if it is good for me or not.

I have never tried them but I would caution you against them. Even if they don't have dangerous side effects to your health like increasing your heart rate they are not a long-term solution. You have several months before prom and your graduation activities to drop some weight in a healthy way. I know you can do this!

I tried them many years ago. They worked but made me paranoid, jittery, and very aggressive. They also made me feel like my heart was going to explode out of my chest because it was beating so fast and hard. I decided to stop them and guess what, the weight I lost came right back on. Thats when I learned the truth about pills. They are a waste of money and a danger to your health. You're better off doing it the old fashioned way.

humm... I'm taking a thermogenic fat-burner but I take it because I have hipothermia and it's OK. I haven't noticed any changes yet, but to be honest I'm not measuring myself... I'm just taking it, but my food intake is still disastrous.

Read for yourself and decide:

I tried a diet pill and ended up with a heart monitor strapped to my chest for the 48hrs during a heat wave. I wasn't even able to take a shower. Not fun. I took more that 2 months after I stopped taking the pills for my heart to stop racing. Not worth it.

I had a prescription "diet" pill problem (i.e. addiction) in the 1970s so you can probably imagine what I think about it. Although the kind of pills I took are no longer available - they were made illegal because of the abuse and many doctors all over the country went to jail. I also bounced from my diet pill episode into a fullblown eating disorder and began starving myself to the point of losing muscle, hair and had all kind of other vital functional losses. The diet pills that are available are very hard on your system - even the so-called "herbal" ones and they are mostly not regulated by the FDA, but that shouldn't reassure you at all. Some of them are powerful stimulants that are hard on your vital organs - especially the HEART and can actually cause permanent damage. I am actually against all diet pills because they either provide no result at all or they can cause weight loss by stimulating the nervous system and not by behavior modification. Behavior modification is the only lasting way to health and a healthy weight, in my semi-humble opinion. They promise "magical" results that are short-lived and unrealistic thus setting up the user for disappointment and reinforcing a "See I can't do it/I have failed again" attitude. Healthy eating, increased activity amid realistic expectations is (again in my semi-humble opinion)the best path to lasting health. I don't mean to sound harsh, Em, but this is one subject I really must tell it like it is.

The only diet pill I occasionally take is Alli, once in a while when I eat out.
