There is no real shortcut in OTC pill form to proper eating and exercise. Most diet OTC diet pills are a short fix and what we used to call "speed' back in the early 70's. Even Alli was disproven in studies. On the package it says to follow a certain eating and exercise regimen. Duh! YOu can do that without the pills and spend the 50 bucks on the proper groceries. Most of the stuff out there now involves colon cleansing and the like. Come on! That's called a laxative boys and girls! Another rip-off! Get your doctor to check your thyroid checked and other tests. Follow your doctors suggestion for YOU and your body make up. I have hypothyroidism for which I take prescription meds but even then I know that with it I have to go a little further in the diet and exercise area to accomplish the same as a person without this condition. That's why I say check with the doctor for what's best for you. I doubt he/she will advise you to take any of those fad pills. They are not realistic and ore often dangerous.

Diet Pills are BAD! Thats just my personal opinion.
I think if you want to lose weight you should cut back on your portion sizes, drink more water, and eat healthier.
No fried foods, frozen meats, frozen dinners, etc. Make everything fresh. Its sometimes a pain but it works.
And always the no brainer get a little exercise in.
I gained over 55lbs while I was preg. He is now a year old and I have about 5lbs. to go. You can do it the natural way.
Dont use pills there bad! Good Luck!!!

Since you said you're looking for something to "assist" in your weight loss, I'm assuming you've already changed your eating habits and are exercising. My husband is a personal trainer and a bodybuilder, and while bodybuilders certainly aren't the healthiest athletes, he uses Lipo6 to jumpstart his fat loss when he starts dieting for a show. He doesn't just take the pill though... he uses that combined with diet change and increased cardio to cut fat. If that's what you're looking for, you might check into Lipo6.

(just an FYI - if you do decide to go with Lipo6, buy it off of bodybuilding.com -- it's cheaper than drugstores or Wal-Mart, and they're running a special right now.)

Actually, try bergamot oil: not ingesting, but smelling! It quells the appetite. Add to your lotions or body oils or add to a room diffuser. It *really* works.

Also, drink lots of water - I went with herbal, non-caf teas, as they were a treat for me, especially with stevia as a sweetener (it is a completely non-toxic sweetener - comes from a plant, has been used for centuries in various places around the world).

And of course don't eat meat or high-fat foods. Meat makes you less active than non-meat foods (can really drag you down; you end up not feeling like getting up and going out for that walk or to the gym or whatever); high-fat foods are hard to combat and make up for with any amount of working out. Sugary foods are actually okay as far as dieting goes (can make a nervous wreck out of you, though, if you have a lot ;)

I have never heard of any diet pill that is safe. However, flax seeds do ramp up the metabolism a bit. Got to be careful not to overdo it or they will mess with your thryoid. Start with 1/2 a teaspoon, and gradually work up to about 4 tblsp/day. Don't heat them or add to hot foods; go with cereal, salads, etc. Also, you need to blend them up. I like to blend a lot at once. Then store in the fridge or freezer.

Another bonus to consuming flax seeds is hat they're very protective against cancer. Even the FDA recognizes this.

I've not used it, but I know Alli is the only diet pill approved by the FDA. You do have to change your eating habits and exercise and stay close to home for the first few days to see how it affects your body (it can cause diarrhea etc...) You can probably find info online about it. I have been thinking about this as well, it's rather expensive (as most weight loss products are) so I want to be committed before I start.

There really isn't a diet pill that works. To lose weight you need to have a balanced diet, supplements, and a changing exercise program. What I mean by changing is that every other day try something different. Our bodies tend to get bored with the same exercise programs. The exercise needs to include resistant training, and cardio or aerobic training. Don't forget valuable sleep. There are some supplements that I don't want to call them a diet pill but they do help curb the appetite. One is called Slimmetry, when combined with diet, and exercise this 100% organic supplement helps increase metabolism which gives you more energy and the weight comes off without knowing. I love it, the other one I use is call Carb blocker. It is a 100% organic supplement that blocks 500 carbs when you are enjoying a large meal. If you know you are heading out for dinner take this supplement 30 mins before and it will help your body block 500 carbs. We don't eat out much, but I have noticed the difference, I don't feel quite so tired after a large meal. Here is the website I get them off of. www.figglesfit.com Search for Diet and Nutrition. There are other items that I love like meal replacement shakes that actually taste good (the chocolate is a dark fudge flavor and does not have the clumpy stuff or the gritty stuff on the bottom), energy bars, and healthy snacks. If you place a order over $75 you get free shipping. Love it!!

A.,
I have hypothyroidism and for me it is extremely difficult to lose weight. I keep thinking if I use diet pills they will jump start me to losing weight. I am scared of them though because I don't want the caffeine and other ingredients to damage my heart. I joined a free website, www.sparkpeople.com. You can manage your food intake, your caloric intake, exercise, water, etc. This site does it all for you. You just have to visit every day and put in all that you eat. They will provide a meal plan for you based on your daily calories you want to have. I haven't really lost any weight but my friends have noticed that I eat better and watch what I eat. I have a hard time with the exercising because I have multiple ruptured discs in my back and stay pretty stiff. But I am trying, very slowly, but trying none the less. The best book I have ever read about dieting, that will help is the "You on a diet" book. Very informative. Written by Dr's, they explain to manage your waistline and not your weight in pounds. Anyway, try some other things before diet pills, I have read that cinnamon helps, also chromium helps with cravings. Whatever you decide google some reviews about that certain product and you can read what real people think about it instead of the maker of that product feeding lies. Good Luck.

I'll probably come across as a party pooper, but here's an article about dieting and how it rarely works the way people are convinced it will. (Call it a modern-day myth.)
"Is Dieting Good For You?"
http://www.spiked-online.com/index.php?/site/article/2997/

The better thing is a balanced diet and increased physical activity, rather than trying to meet some arbitrarily set weight or BMI (and BMIs are also notoriously inaccurate at indicating proper weight; see "Body Mass Index: A Big Fat Lie"
http://www.spiked-online.com/index.php?/site/article/5200/
and "It's Official: You Can Be Fat and Fit"
http://www.spiked-online.com/index.php?/site/article/5682/ )

To explain where I'm coming from, a few years ago I was weighed and BMI'd as part of a weight training course I took in college, and I was told I was overweight because my BMI was 26.9. I was 5'4" and 122 lbs!! I lost three pounds in the course of that year (not by trying) and then got pregnant. My OB told me I was *underweight* and told me I could eat whatever I wanted and gain as much weight as I wanted during my pregnancy, for my health. So, if an underweight woman is rated as "overweight" because of her BMI, it makes me question the whole premise.

I don't want to make you feel discouraged, but rather to help you feel better about yourself and your capacity to make healthy changes without relying on chemical assistance. My husband is an RN and now in medical school, and he says the main thing to be healthy is not dieting but activity level. We just tend to find ourselves too busy to work in physical activity, so we look for shortcuts. Just like we think we have no time to sleep, so we drink caffeine.

Good luck!!

(Looks like you'll have to copy and paste the links to read the articles. Please read them - they're very good!)

Diet pills suck, they don't work. Dieting has a 97% recivitism. Its because of the hormones our stomachs put off. Ghrelling and the other starts with a P. The only way to combat the whole cycle is eating organic food, which is generally higher in nutrition and cutting calories, usually through a decent program.
I lost 35 pounds in 6 weeks using a program called isagenix. I've been off of it for two months and have not gained the weight back.
Luck to you,

I personally do not approve of diet pills. I think that at the worst they can be dangerous, and at the least give false promises. If you are set on taking something, please talk to your doctor first to see if there are any he/she recommends as you want to be safe in what you use.

The best method of weight loss is good diet, and exercise. I recommend Denise Austin's "How to Shrink Your Female Fat Zones." She has a 6 week eating plan and exercises. What I like about it is that she stresses learning healthy eating, vs. dieting (which often doesn't work because once you go back to regular eating you gain the weight back).

Hi A.,

I don't believe there is a diet pill, plan, or meal that actually works unless one is also willing to change what they eat, get into an exercise regime, and drink 1/2 their weight in ounces of purified water daily and then "KEY" stay with that lifestyle.

Did you know that if you were to cut out sugar (to include both diet and regular soda), fast food, anything with high fructose corn syrup and replaced that with steamed, baked, or grilled foods - add the water & exercise - not only would you lose weight, but your body would be a lot healthier?

As for sugar - safe alternatives are stevia and xylitol.

If you've got to have fried, use olive oil.

My products include a weight loss 'program' - Keep muscle, lose fat - which include shakes (vanilla, strawberry, cafe latte, and chocolate - my favorite) healthy recipes, snack bars (chocolate decadence, peanut butter, and lemon-cranberry) a pedometer to track your walking, diary, and support network. Interested? http://www.CinchInches.com

If you have any questions, feel free to email me directly at [email protected]____.com

Hope I've been of some help,

Be careful with the pills. I've used the Hoodia pills and they work okay. When I started journaling my food intake, that really helped me see what I was eating and helped get my appetite under control. Also drink lots of water. That helps curb your appetite. If you don't like water, try it with the crystal light flavoring. It helps.
