stay away from all and any diet pills. They are all thermogenic and raise your metabolism. People have had major side effects such as death and stroke. You are too young to be worrying about diet pills. Just keep on doing what you are doing. To me, it looks like you are not eating enough. Are you nauseous at all when you work out? If you are that is a good sign that you are not eating enough. Just be safe no matter what you do. Listen to your body and do it all naturally. Also, don't go 6 days a week. You could be suffering from overtraining. You need at least 2 days of rest for what you are trying to do. Also, switch up your workouts. Do more sets, go heavier, change your cardio routine to an interval etc.... Don't be afraid to stop one of the trainers at the gym and have a conversation with them. Good luck.
There are not many pills to just gain fat, simply because it is not healthy. However, there are pills with protein which you can take and with some physical exercise, will put on the pounds. Or also, there is a powder in which you can mix with drinks or a smoothie; they do the same thing. Look around on this site: http://www.gnc.com/home/index.jsp

No, really, it is a prescription diet pill called Phentermine.
If you don't know what it is, then is wasn't prescribed to you and you should NOT take it!
Possible side effects of Phentermine :
Bad taste in mouth; changes in sex drive; constipation; diarrhea; difficulty sleeping; dizziness; dry mouth; exaggerated sense of well being; headache; impotence; nervousness; over stimulation; restlessness; sleeplessness; upset stomach.
Seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE side effects occur:
Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue); bizarre behavior; chest pain; fainting; fast heartbeat; pounding in the chest; shortness of breath; swelling of the legs and feet; tremor.
Gaining weight is the only way, am pretty sure most girls wish there was other ways we could ' magically' make our boobs bigger, would be great! But am afraid the only other way is surgery.
Effective at what they intend to do? Yes without a doubt.
But....... It depends on how the pill should work, no pill will make you lose weight by themselves. Some curb appetite (like hoodia) but you could still eat even if you're not hungry. Some help metabolize fat but they require diet to remain the same and excercise to increase to work.
If you can increase your lean muscle mass by ligting weight, you will permantantly increase your metabolism, Thats the best way to lose fat. It works every time for all people.
Sorry to hear that someone at the peak of development is avoiding the essential nutrients found in those foods. Your choice to be a vegan is an ethical choice and contrary to all the medical evidence supporting a well rounded diet of whole and fresh foods to achieve maximum potential. Your body still has 5-7 years of development mostly adding lean muscle tissue so I would focus on that more than body fat%
The principle ingredients in diet pills like Hydroxycut are caffeine and B vitamins. Even the "caffeine free" blends contain herbs that contain - caffeine!
Let's pretend any of these "thermogenic" diet pills really do what they say.
The thermic effect of eating, digesting, and other food energy related functions only account for 10% of your total BMR (basal metabolic rate). So if you are fairly active a diet of 2000 calories per day is pretty reasonable for a maintenance diet. That means 200 calories go to thermic burn. Now let's say these wonderful diet pills increase your thermic burn by 50%. That is a huge change in any body function.
So we have increased our caloric burn by??.... 100 calories per day! Or less than one pound per month. For anywhere from $40 to $200 a month. You can burn 100 calories a day just drinking 100 oz of ice cold beverages!
That is why these bogus and often dangerous pills cannot get FDA approval. They simply cannot prove their outrageous claims with acceptable clinical evidence.
Read the container and you will see each and every one of them says somewhere on the label it is a "dietary supplement'. Loopholes in the current laws allow peddlers to promote their products without accepted medical evidence to prove their outrageous claims.
All this stuff is putting your liver and kidneys through a lot of unnecessary and potentially dangerous activity.
Many spices like chili powder, different peppers, garlic powder, cinnamon and others cause an increase in the thermic affect of food. But come on, you can eat pennies per day of seasonings and get the same benefit as these diet pills.
A healthy diet of whole unprocessed foods will give you much greater results.
Possible side effects of most diet pills
Arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat)
Jaundice (yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes)
Unexplained headaches and dizziness
Loss of appetite

Throw it out. It's worthless junk your body doesn't need because it's a supplement.
Read my answer here --> http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;...
There is nothing magic about protein and more than you need won't do anything except get pissed down the toilet or burned by your body making you more likely to add body fat. And supplements should never be used without a doctors advice.
The best health experts in the world (the US National Institute of Health), the people US doctors listen to, advise you should never take a supplement without the recommendation of a health care professional because all supplements are potentially hazardous to your health as supplements do not have to be tested. The result is many supplements are contaminated, worthless, have false advertising or label claims, and may contain dangerous or worthless chemicals or substances.
Here's an example of one scam site (bodybuilding.com) which pretends to be a bodybuilding website but is really just a front for selling supplements as evidenced by this list of over 60 dangerous supplement products they were forced to recall and take off the market --> http://www.usrecallnews.com/2009/11/body... . More here --> http://www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch/Safet...
Bodybuilding.com is a good example why you should never buy supplements whether you want to burn fat, gain weight, build muscle, or are just hoping to improve your health. The scammers who sell junk supplements do so by using advertising, celebrity endorsements, fake testimonials, phony interviews and news reports, bogus reviews, and every other technique possible to convince you their product is safe and effective. They have saturated the internet with thousands of web sites so no matter what you search for, you'll only find glowing reviews of their products at the top of the search results. And, the result of this effort has led an entire generation of young people to believe in fat burners, diet pills, mass gainers, pre and post workout supplements and other junk which not only do we not need but which are ineffective, a waste of money, and possibly even hazardous. The voice of truth is relatively quite compared to the $billions spent on supplement advertising, so before you buy any supplements, inform yourself with the links below.
Scammers target the young, gullible, and naive demographic because they know they can sway them with greater ease than the older, wiser buying public. But, there are some easy questions you can answer using simple logic to be able to qualify a scammer as suspect. Here are some examples.
• If there was an easy way to do hard things like burn fat or build muscle, why doesn't the whole world know about it? How could that be kept secret when that's what so many people desire?
• If there was a supplement that helped people shed pounds, why doesn't your doctor recommend it? If you're overweight, why doesn't your physician just give you the pill or recommend the acai or HCG diet or whatever? Why are physicians always telling the same story about obesity and how to cope with it?
• If there were supplements that could help burn fat or build muscle, why haven't the huge and powerful pharmaceutical companies taken them over? Why let the scammers like GNC and Weider continue to make $millions off the public when they have a much greater capacity for providing such products?
• Why do people pay big bucks to have liposuction or stomach stapling if supplements could really help them to lose fat?
There is only one good answer to all of these questions. Most of the supplements which are supposed to make you lose fat, add muscle, grow taller, kill appetite, gain weight, bulk up, get ripped, etc. just don't work. It's really that simple.
If you just can't resist buying a supplement, at the very least make sure it bears the trademark logo and name of one of the following independent testing laboratories.
• USP (US Pharmacopoeia)
• NSF (NSF International)
Such testing does not guarantee effectiveness or safety but it's better than nothing. The best advice remains: Don't use supplements.
Good luck and good health!!
Now, for your own welfare and well being, please review all of the links below.
Theres no "miracle" diet pill and they usually aren't the best method to lose weight buuutt..
The only one I've tried before was zantrex-3, the blue bottle. It helps you with weight loss, but you can't just take it and still eat normally and expect to lose weight. But it basically just gives you a boost of energy for working out, and decreases your appetite. But you have to be careful with it (and any other diet pills), as they're very strong, especially if you're young! I took zantrex 3 when I was 15 and only had 1/4 a serving at once (so half a pill) or else i would feel really sick.
I've also heard the green tea fat burner is pretty good, but i haven't tried it..
My advice: try losing weight on your own first, the healthy way! if you feel like you need some help, maybe try out a diet pill, but don't fully rely on it :)
