What Diet Pill Actually Works?
I Need To Lose Weight And Fast. I Dont Want To Go Under The Knife. I Have Been Excerising But It'S Not Going Well
None of the over the counter weight loss pills works. Believe me i've tried them and spent a fortune. You have to desciplined and work out by walking 30 minutes a day and cutting out the fried foods and I suggest not eating anything after 6:00 pm. Also drink lots of water and stay away from the sodas. Everyone wants the miracle pill but it doesn't exist............. if it does let me know where i can get it. Good luck to you.
Does Metformin Work For Losing Weight?
A While Ago I Heard All The Talk About Metformin Being The New Diet Drug. Does Anyone Have Any Proven Results And How Much And When Did You Administer It.
Yes, metformin does promote weight loss, but it is not a diet drug, it is an oral hypoglycaemic agent, and thus it is used for the treatment of Type II Diabetes. The buzz about metformin is the weight loss it causes in obese patients, thus it sensitises their body to insulin on more than one level, thus it it the first line of treatment in obese Type II diabetics. It has not been approved as a weight loss tool in people without Diabetes, so I wouldn't advise trying to get some without a prescription first! (and a valid reason for doing so)
Is Four Different Supplements To Many?
I Am Getting Back Into Lifting Weights, And These New Supplements Out Have Me Confused, My Local Nutrition Store Recomended Me A Creatine Pill Cx5, With A Nitric Oxide Pill Nx6, An Amino Acid Pill Called Rebuild, And A Multivitamin Complete Active. Is This Too Much? I Am Pushing 150 In Weight And 5' 10&Quot; In Height
If you've got a basic multivitamin in your medicine cabinet you already have the only supplement you need. Be advised that no "gainer supplement" including multivitamins are approved or proven by the FDA. That is why they must be labeled as supplements and not proven drugs or medication.
Not one is recommended by any medical, dietary, or regulatory organization.
They are overwhelmingly endorsed by the people making the money off them.
Most pre workouts contain some form of stimulant to accelerate heart rate. You can get the same effect from a few cups of coffee or any caffeinated drink.
Nobody needs a protein shake or pre workout stimulant.
We get all the protein we need from a complete diet of fresh whole foods from all food groups.
There is a small window of time immediately after intense weightlifting, not cardiovascular exercise, where the severely damaged lean muscle tissue can use (not demand) extra protein.
Marketers have taken advantage of this information and convinced consumers they NEED protein supplements to increase muscle size. And they are making a boat load of money selling the concept.
Along the same lines the body uses more calories to digest protein than fats or carbohydrates. The total however is insignificant. 30 additional calories from a 100 grams of protein per day diet.
Marketers have seized this information and convinced consumers that protein supplements cause weight loss. Again making a ton of money, So we ingest protein to build mass and reduce weight at the same time?
Try a lean meat or tuna sandwich on whole wheat an hour before exercise. Again after. Any combination of lean protein and a complex carbohydrate to extend the absorption time. This gives the body a consistent supply of protein. Muscle repair, rest, and new tissue growth occur 24/7, not only right after exercise.
Spend your money at the grocery store instead of on unapproved supplements.
Weight "gainers" are not recommended by any medical, dietary, or regulatory organization.
They are heavily recommended by the manufacturers, sellers, and paid endorsements. THe people at GNC get paid to sell product whether it works or not.
Check recommendations from this internationally recognized organization not trying to sell you anything.

Has Anyone Tried The 72 Hour Diet Pill?
Just Want Some Info About It. How You Felt. If You Lost Weight?
Do NOT take diet pills! They are dangerous!!
Last year I was visiting my parents and took diet pills on top on my exercise routine and normal diet. I was 26 at the time, 5'11, 180 lbs. By week three I was sick. I had diarrhea, dry heaves, dizziness, headaches, and a general feeling of being sick. I thought I had caught the flu or something. I had lost 13 lbs in 4 days. One morning I told my mom I didn't feel good. My vision kept blacking out and I felt (for lack of a better way to say it) stoned. Later that afternoon I was walking from the bathroom to my bedroom (a 5 foot walk) and I passed out. I was rushed to the hospital emergency where they did a bunch of tests on me.
My pulse was up to 120, My blood pressure was 150/40, they had to start me on an IV, the did an EKG on me, took blood and urine samples, and a whole barrage of other tests.
They finally got me stabilized and said that I was dehydrated and malnutritioned. I told him that I took diet pills. When I mentioned diet pill, the doctors face lit up and said that's why. He said they can cause a whole bunch of health problems, including death. He told me to toss the diet pills or next time I might not be so lucky.
I was kept in the hospital for almost 10 hours, given 3 or 4 IVs, potassium, juices, and monitored (by the EKG, blood pressure, and heart rate machines) every 15 minutes.
Please take my story as a warning. If you seriously want to loose weight there are better ways (I know because I've lost weight after this)
The quickest way is to cut out red meats, starches, breads, sugars, alcohol, and sodas.
Eat veggies (salads are good), soups, and drink TONS of water. If you get hungry between a meal, drink water to fill up.
In moderation eat white meats, and fruits (fruits contain natural sugars, and that can put on weight)
Practice portion control. Yes, you'll feel hungry at first, but think of your goal, and soon your stomach will start shrinking and you won't have that feeling anymore.
Eat 5 times a day. A small breakfast. A mid-morning snack, such as an apple. A small lunch. A mid-afternoon snack, such as carrots. A lite dinner. Do not eat any later than 7pm (6pm is better.)
Go exercise for at least an hour - two a day, incorporating weight training along with your cardio. Cardio helps to melt the fat, while weight training builds muscle. Muscle burns fat, even when you are resting. You get the idea. It also gives tone and definition. Also do a few yoga and pilates exercises to help tone those hard to reach and stubborn areas.
Does Anyone Know If Breast Enhancement Pills Really Work?
If You Do Could You Please Tell Me Which Ones Are The Safest And Your Results.
Many different internet companies advertise breast enhancement pills. Most of them claim that by taking their ‘natural’ product you can increase your breast size by one to two inches (2 to 3 cup sizes) in just 90 days.
These herbal tablets contain chemicals called phyto-oestrogens. The companies selling these products claim that these chemicals will stimulate the oestrogen receptors in your breast tissue and permanently enlarge your breast size. Phyto-oestrogens are chemicals found in plant foods (phyto means ‘plant’). They are similar in structure to the female sex hormone oestrogen.
The tablets are supposed to work by ‘tricking’ your breasts into believing that you are pregnant. This means that the pills stimulate the production of oestrogen in your body in the same way that oestrogen is produced during pregnancy. The idea is that your breasts will enlarge in the same way as they would if you were pregnant. But the manufacturers say that you won’t produce milk and unlike that of pregnancy, the enlargement is supposed to be 85 to 90% permanent.
What natural herbs do breast enhancement pills contain?
Herbal medicine is the use of plants or mixtures of plant extracts in the treatment or prevention of disease. This includes all parts of the plant, the leaves, stalks and roots. Each part can differ in strength and effects. You need to be careful with herbal medicines, as with any medicine. Just because a product is called ‘natural’ or ‘herbal’, doesn’t necessarily mean that it is always safe to use.
Many modern drugs were originally made from plants. The effect they have depends on the chemicals in the plant, how they work in the body and on how the product is made by the manufacturer.
The combination of herbs in breast enhancement pills seems to vary depending on the company selling them.
Examples include all or a combination of the following
Wild Yam Extract
Siberian Ginseng Root
Chinese Red Ginseng Root
Echinacea Whole Plant
Fo Ti Root
Golden Seal Root
Panax Ginseng Root and Extract
Scientific studies looking into herbal products are increasing and many of the herbs listed above have been individually researched. But we don’t know of any published clinical trials that have studied a combination of all these herbs. How herbs may interact with each other and with any existing medication that you may be taking, can be a cause for concern. We just don’t know enough about this yet.
Herbs and dietary supplements are starting to be regulated in the UK. But at the moment it is still difficult to find out if the dose and potency of ingredients in herbal remedies are within safe and acceptable limits. You can find out more about the safety of herbal medicines in our section on complementary and alternative therapies. And the following link will take you to an American cancer website with information on most of the individual herbs in the above list.
What research has been done into breast enhancement pills?
The Department of Health Care Sciences at George Washington University School of Medicine, in America have done some research into this. They published a paper in 2003 called "Bust enhancing herbal products".
They say that several herbs in breast enhancement tablets do actively work on your hormones. But they don’t recommend using them because we can’t be certain that they are safe or that they work as breast enhancers.
The effect of phyto-oestrogens on breast tissue isn’t really clear. Some early research suggested that women with diets high in phyto-oestrogens have a lower risk of breast cancer. A joint study, reported in July 2002 by Cancer Research UK, the National Cancer Institute of the USA and the National University of Singapore, found that women with a soya-rich diet had breast tissue that was less dense than women with low soya diets. Higher density of breast tissue has been linked to a higher risk of breast cancer. This is the first study to directly link eating soya with an effect on breast tissue. Another recent study found breast cancer risk was lower in women who consumed miso regularly. Miso is made of steamed soya beans, then mixed with salt and other fermenting agents.
Not all studies into breast cancer risk have found that phyto-oestrogens have any effect, so we can't be completely sure about this yet. Some researchers are concerned that these foods may stimulate the growth of human breast cancer cells.
You may want to look at information about risk factors for breast cancer, including hormones.
Because we don’t know enough about the long term safety and effectiveness of breast enhancement pills we don’t recommend that you use them. Many of the companies who promote their use say that for women with small breasts, enlarging them will
Boost your confidence
Improve your self esteem
Give you a fuller life!
Regain the attention you deserve
Help you fill out swimsuits and bras
Put you in control of your body
Make you the envy of all eyes!
These are all direct quotes from websites selling breast enhancement products.
We find this information very disturbing and misleading. Many women with small breasts have very fulfilling lives and don’t suffer low self esteem! Although we live in a society that seems to suggest that, ‘bigger breasts are better’, it isn’t necessarily true. Before you decide to take these pills we would strongly advise you to read all the information here. If you are still not sure then seeing your GP for advice may help.
Metformin - Help Me Out Here - Weight Loss?
I Read Many Times That Metformin Is Obviously Used For Diabetes Type 2 And Also Read That It Is Given For The Specitif Reason For Weight Loss.
I Want To Discuss This With My Doctor Only He Never Heard Of Metformin Being Given For Weight Loss. Can Someone Back Me Up Here.
Metformin is a common medication used to treat type 2 diabetes. It is generally well tolerated, but like all medicines, can have side effects (see earlier comments). One positive side effect of this drug is that patients may occasionally report weight loss (not through nausea/loss of appetite, though). However, the amount of weight lost is small, usually <5 lbs.
If you're concerned about your weight, the best approach is to practice a healthy lifestyle by eating well-balanced (and well-proportioned) meals, quitting smoking (if you do), and getting lots of physical activity. You should see your physician or nutritionist about an appropriate diabetic diet if you have other questions.
What Diet Pills Actually Work?
I Really Just Need To Know What Diet Pills Actually Work. Please Dont Tell Me It Just To Say A Diet Pill Name, I Would Really Like To Konw The Truth.
Why do you people come on hear and only want to hear from other people foolish enough to try this crap?
If someone had one that really worked, they would be the richest company in the world!
There is no such thing as a fat burner pill, liquid, powder, or supplement!
Think about it. If any of this garbage worked, why would 2/3 of the adults in the US be overweight, obese, or morbidly obese?
Alli is the only over the counter weight loss pill approved by the FDA. There are only three prescription weight loss medications approved. Do you think that if any of them REALLY worked we would have a $60 billion a year industry in "weight loss" supplements?
The big three pharmaceuticals would dominate the market.
Approved or otherwise, none of these weight loss supplements guarantee anything unless you establish a healthy diet and exercise program.
So why not just establish a healthy diet and exercise program and keep your money?
You will be spending somewhere between $2 and $4 per day on a product that is not approved or guaranteed to do anything!
The only weight loss supplement I recommend is a basic multivitamin.
Sounds to me like you need to put more effort into your diet plan to lose the weight.
And yes they are dangerous. Heart, liver, kidney, intestinal, and neurological damage and death have all been the result of diet pills. That is why the FDA hasn't approved any new ones for 14 years.
These supplement manufacturers are using human guinea pigs (you) for these products. As long as no one gets sick or dies, and they don't get fined or shut down they will keep making and selling this junk. Whether it works or not.
There Are Some Diet Pills In My Cabinet... Are???
Are Equate Multivitamin Dietary Supplements Diet Pills?
My Mom Has Some In Her Medicine Cabnint, And I Know She Doesn'T Take Them (Must Have Been Some Kind Of Old Idea, Everyone Forgets To Take Vitamins And Pills In This Family), Are They Diet Pills?
If So, What Kind, Like The Kind That Curves Your Appetite, Or Just Makes You Feel Full...
multivitamins are merely a supplement. They help ad vitamins in your diet to aid in the recommended daily allowance. It doesn't do anything like curb an appetite or make you full.
Can You Explain This? 72 Hr?
I Bought The 72 Hr Diet Pills But Confused On How & When To Take Them
I Read The Instruction & It Says:
Take 3 Capsules 30 Minutes Before Breakfast And Lunch.
So Do I Take 3 Before Breakfast And 3 Before Lunch Or A Total Of 3?
if the directions are exactly as you have written here, then you take 3 before breakfast and 3 before lunch. Now having said that, diet pills are dangerous. They increase your heart rate and blood pressure which will cause you to have serious side effects. One being death.. remember Anna Nicole Smith and her comercials for "trim spa"..
any weight loss you might experience from pills is short lived. The only real way to loose weight is to eat 6 small portioned meals a day. That boosts your metabolism naturally. cut out all white foods, like white bread, white rice, white sugar, no diet pop, no junk food, no fried foods, no processed meats.
Eat fruits, veggies, lean meats like chicken and fish and brown rice. Exercise at least once a day, walking is the best and you can do this for at least one hour each day at a brisk pace without harm to your joints. Then do some weight work, if you don't have traditional weights around the house fill up a couple of 2 liter pop bottles half full and use them. Muscle burns fat.
Don't risk your life and health on pills, its a waste of money.
